As an Aogaku grad and a current Kyodai student, fuck both Nihon and Kangaku. Metor game if I ever saw one.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||You would want that I keep||
You would want that I keep from sharing pure gold with MGoBoard?
I don't want to live in a world like that, sir.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Yeah, I've gotten a few||
Yeah, I've gotten a few things from this site, but I really think that this is the worst thing I've seen pretty much anywhere.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||I live in Japan, so it wasn't||
I live in Japan, so it wasn't drunk posting at 4:00 a.m. I really was just that taken with the jorts.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Well, my plan to change all||
Well, my plan to change all my commenting and blogging accounts to my real name has come early. Thanks for pointing it out.
|3 years 41 weeks ago||Yeah? Well, if they had hired||
Yeah? Well, if they had hired Hoke, they would've had TWO national titles.
|3 years 44 weeks ago||A correct statement on||
A correct statement on multitudinous levels.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||Well, Villanova in 1985 was||
Well, Villanova in 1985 was not a legite champion. I could argue about a few others, but what I also mean is that a lot of teams, if we concede that the regualr season matters, don't really belong in the final four?
|3 years 45 weeks ago||Yeah, you are correct.||
Yeah, you are correct. Although, can I pretend in my fantasy world* that crazy money would convince conferences to do this?
*My fantasy worlds revolve around concrete logic. I have very sad fantasies.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||I'm totally willing to admit||
I'm totally willing to admit that there are flaws to any system, but I don't really get why there needs to be anything more than a plus 1 system. Usually, the debate about which team is the best is restricted to the top 4. Why have a 16 team playoff where you would get some of the same crap that happens in basketball (I think MM is tonnes of fun, but it does a pretty bad job of actually crowing the deserving national champion)?
That said, I hate the closed nature and overall sliminess of the BCS. I wish someone would blow up it up by giving the Cotton Bowl tonnes of money to spend as they wished on luring teams. As far as I understand the BCS and NCAA would not be able to do anything about it. Teams do not have to accept invitations, right?
"Sure, Auburn and Oregon, you could play in the BCS game, or you could come to Texas and get double the money for you and your conference."

I do not know why the paragraphs did not take, but as an artistic statement, the monograph was striking. Beautiful? No. It did say something, however, even if it was ugly, as it spoke to our collective darking souls. As Mark Rothko once said:
|3 years 47 weeks ago||mmmmmm..... that block of||
mmmmmm..... that block of text looks like cookies'n'creme ice cream if you scroll really fast.
|3 years 47 weeks ago||It's a basic-but-brilliant||
Uh, Rubicon? You mean having the guts to cross a shallow river with your army instead of throwing yourself to the mercy of your rival is a "fallen fancy"? Am I missing something here?
Florid writing that is not trying to remove the pantaloons of an amatory inamorata (or inamorato) = a bad bad thing.
It makes one look unitelligent when one makes a factual or rhetorical mistake (see: everything I write).

....and with that, a thousand rapping Tucker Carlsons descended upon AA.
No one is safe.

And in the end, Nick Sheridan played Cupido extraordinaire.
It is a wonderful world in which we live.

For me Nos. 10-1 are all Rutherford B. Hayes in each of his governing capacities.
Fuck you Rutherford.
|3 years 48 weeks ago||Sportswriters are like a more||
Sportswriters are like a more useless version of the music critic.
"Gee, I wonder how that new Walkmen album sounds. I guess could read reviews. Or I could just go to Youtube and listen to a couple tracks."
"Gee, I wonder what is going to happen to Rich. I guess I could read speculation in the paper. Or I could just watch the game and watch the press conference online."
All they have is being entertaining. And being extremely positive or negative is what goes for being entertaining. Right now it is kosher to rip on Michigan and Rodriguez, so the negative pieces will flow forth.
|3 years 48 weeks ago||Does the fact that I'm||
Does the fact that I'm stunned someone was gauche enough to post this here say something positive about the general community?

We heard you were placed on the Vandy team. We are sorry, but we can no longer accept you as part of the family.
Your Former Parents

Really, easier than Group 2? Genius lessons.
|4 years 19 weeks ago||I don't know if the US is||
I don't know if the US is higher on the pecking order. Slovenia did knock out both the Czech Republic (pool) and Russia (playoff) in qualificaiton (and, yeah, that fucking hurt). Both of those opponents (especially Russia) would be tournament darkhorses and at least on par in talent with Mexico (and better than the rest of CONblahblah). I know that Slovenia did not blow either of those teams out of the water, but I would think that they would be considered same peg in the pecking order with the US.
That said, avenge me USMNT!

I have a new least favorite James Joyce.
|4 years 27 weeks ago||It is not moot, because it||
It is not moot, because it expresses a political opinion. I would rather help planet earth first before just America. And in my opinion we should start with Chinese kids because there are more Chinese kids on planet earth. At least I'm not a horrible xenophobe like you.///
Oh wait, I was actually pointing out that you were stating a political/geo-political opinion on Mgoblog (harping on that opinion in fact) and that ---
politics are verboten!
But yeah, promote worthy causes. Please do.
|4 years 27 weeks ago||But, the problems that I have||
But, the problems that I have personal experience with are much more important than the problems that you know about.
I have first hand first hand experience of living in an extremely poor industrial area of China. Therefore, the problems of Chinese people are instantly more important than those of black Americans.
I could go on and on, but --
See, instantly political. Posting about a cause isn't political. Arguing that one cause is underfunded or more worthy because it affects people in more need promotes your geo-political view. I mean, do you really need to push people away from one problem to one that you think is superior?
Post some links to some well-vetted charities.
|4 years 35 weeks ago||I think it is pretty clear||
I think it is pretty clear that I meant for the overall medal count. Obviously, Canadians aren't rooting against their own teams in competition.
|4 years 35 weeks ago||Uh, yeah... just like||
Uh, yeah... just like everyone roots for Ohio State in the Rose bowl....
Look at my comment. Read. Think. Say, "Oh, I get it now."
And yeah, a lot of Canadians would like to see Germany catch the US. It would shut the fucking annoying US media up.
Don't feel bad or scared that this is the truth. During the Beijing Olympics, I was in Japan and the Japanese were rooting for the US to deny the Chinese dominance.
|4 years 35 weeks ago||Shouldn't Americans be acting||
Shouldn't Americans be acting like we don't care about the medal count, thus making Canadians look even sillier?
Besides, every Canuck around me is now rooting ever so hard for Germany.
I hate it when winning is all about your enemy loosing.
|4 years 37 weeks ago||It would be a lot of drama,||
It would be a lot of drama, eh? There doesn't seem to be another reasonable choice. Shorey and Warnock don't have the experience.
|4 years 37 weeks ago||That is a pretty gaping hole||
That is a pretty gaping hole at left back though. Who can they play there who has the attacking ability of Cole?
And Bridge may not even be available either.
