"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."

Late 70's, high school string quartet: Invited as guinea pigs to a Master Class with the Guarneri String Quartet in East Lansing. We borrowed the viola player's Dad's Mercedes sports car and tootled up to E Lansing to do the gig. Turned out it was MSU's homecoming and the dorms and frats were festooned with banners made out of bedsheets weighted down with beer cans.
We were dressed in suits, but as we passed more and more of these my buddies looked at each other and said "That one must come down". So I shinnied up a drainpipe to the second floor, snagged a "Go Spartans" banner and ran to the Mercedes just as the guys started running out of the building after us.
Man, that felt good. Cool story, me.

I hadn't thought of that until reading what Hoke said in this presser...
Imagine a kid expected to be the savior of this program, injured in Game 1 of his college career; head coach/father figure(?) tells the press earlier in the week that he's going to play, ratcheting expectations up even higher, and then by Thursday or Friday, kid realizes that he's not gonna be able to make it and feels he let the coach down.
Not saying it happened that way, or that JP is too sensitive, but it might have been a little too rough to put the kid through, college big boy pants notwithstanding....

Best thing about it for me:
Having spent what feels like 5 or 6 YEARS in 3rd and Long, the fact that I can't even remember this play from two days ago makes me giggle like a schoolgirl.

Was in there one evening with my buddy, and they locked the gates on us. We found the old brick ticket booth that straddled the chain link fence, threw our bikes on the roof of it, got up there and climbed the fence back down. There was no such thing as an MIP ticket then, but ...
