|5 days 4 hours ago||It baffles me||
how little Miller has been used this season. Also scares the bejabbers out of my paranoid, non-bolded alter ego

just to upvote you for the Mork & Mindy reference.

content, and before you donate you want "assurances"? /wanking motion

if you have kids, give them a little extra long hug tonight (and every other)
Call your Mother and tell her you love her (Dad too)
if you are in an argument with a friend, squash it. Dont worry about who is right
That poor baby. His poor family. Not ashamed to admit Im a little misty right now (my son is about the same age). Just terrible.
|1 week 1 day ago||I asked him||
about why, given his Father's history of aiding and abetting felons, he thought it was okay to make jokes about a 19 year old kid like that. No reply so far
|1 week 1 day ago||Im surprised||
he didnt go with the classic, "Your mother was a hamster and your Father smelt of elderberries" blast
|1 week 1 day ago||welp||
he still believes his father was innocent, taken advantage of by Sandusky and railroaded out of town. As such, the old adage applies: never argue with a fool. People may not know the difference.

The planes transporting the Steelers and Ravens to their games this week collide over Columbus, and land in the horseshoe, wiping out the Steelers, Ravens, Buckeyes, Spartans, Juggalos and Cooler Poopers all in one fell swoop

Bo and Woody probably also loved outhouses, but that doesnt mean I want to poop outside

goes sideways, and I'm all like "you lied to me!"
|2 weeks 2 days ago||similarly||
that's why the put my Dad in helicopters in Vietnam. At least that's what he used to tell me. Also, if anyone ever asks if you are more afraid of lightning or sand, the correct answer is sand.
|3 weeks 9 hours ago||Yeah, in the pool of color commentators||
Millen is one of the better ones. Not perfect, but definitely "adds value". I keep that opinion to myself around here due to Lions ties. As a Browns fan, I feel the same way about Butch Davis.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||yes, but||
are you capable of telling an untruth?
|4 weeks 3 days ago||not much of a gambler||
myself, but that podcast is appointment listening
|4 weeks 3 days ago||its kind of funny||
he makes a point to mention it in every one of his podcasts so far. E.g "Hey House, did you know you could make money by giving corporations airtime on a podcast? It's a new concept"
|4 weeks 3 days ago||I apologize||
my point about non competes may have been a bit vague. What I meant was if they dont have non compete clauses with whatever place they land next, so they could do some moonlighting at Simmons new site. I know some (like Rembert) have already started their new non-Simmonsy jobs
|4 weeks 3 days ago||in one of his first "free" podcasts||
Simmons stated that they were only featured on the ESPN main page an average of 2x per month, and toward the end it was less than that. he also said (I believe, dont have the time to scroll through the podcast to fact check) that something like 65% of their traffic was unique and not from ESPN's main page. It appears ESPN's main page was not the conduit many expected it to be, and yet the honchos at ESPN tried to use those smaller traffic numbers (versus projections based on the full on ESPN firehose treatment) as fodder for their argument that Grantalnd (and by association, Simmons) were not worth what he was asking
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Simmons||
has long been a Bachelor/Bachelorette fan. Also why they had a RealWorld/ Road Rules Gauntlet article series.
But, lets not let the facts get in the way of a good story. Damn you corporate interests. BIG MEDIA is ruining our lives.
Anyhow, the good news is Simmons will get a lot ofo these writers back together under the HBO umbrella. Some have already gotten new jobs, and Im not sure if there are non-competes or anything, so some may get lost in the shuffle, but I expect something similar sometime soon. I dont think Simmons will be as hands on as he had to be at Grantland though. He will be more of an EIC Emeritus, rather than the day to day Chief Cook and Bottle Washer. That way he has more time for podcasts and his new show.

Sanka's lucky egg?
|6 weeks 8 hours ago||you are totally wrong||
eggsalad...salmonella...dangerous as f*ck. If you've ever had salmonella poisoning, you know you'd glady trade those 48 hours of heaving misery for 48 hours of watching that failed punt and MSU juggalos celebrating, eyes propped open, Clockwork Orange style.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||one of the knobs||
on Cleveland sports radio tweeted that the loss was totally on Harbaugh, he didn't have them coached up, maybe he's not as great as everyone thinks he is, etc.
That's fear talking.
This loss sucked but not as bad as just getting your ass whipped all day and never having a chance. The future is bright. Shit happens, and its sounds like Harbaugh is dealing with it perfectly. There is absolutely no person on the planet Id rather have.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||I wasn't there||
but the Twitterverse gave me the impression it was eerily quiet
|6 weeks 1 day ago||sorry to hear||
I'd like to think if it were me, I'd be calm enough to remind myself "Never argue with a fool. People may not know the difference."
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Strangely enough||
The Big Chill was directed by Michigan alum Lawrence Kasdan. Its IMDB page states: "The characters were based on people Lawrence Kasdan lived with in the Eugene V. Debs co-op in Ann Arbor, MI, while attending the University of Michigan. Co-ops are co-ed housing in which the residents share household duties like cooking. This explains why the characters are so comfortable sharing the house and cooking, and are so attached to the Michigan football game."
so, for that mistake to be in that movie with that director is surprising. I'd bet it was a fumble/ ad lib by the actors.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||People in the area||
say its because its LA and there's so much to do outside and the weather's perfect and blah blah blah when the truth is they're just crappy fans
|9 weeks 4 days ago||he went to||
FS1, which is basically the same result. And there was much rejoicing!
|10 weeks 2 days ago||for professional writers||
they don't even cheer or show any emotion in the press box. It is considered unprofessional, even for the longest tenured beat writers. If you hope to parlay this experience into a career in the media, your best bet is to act accordingly and then change later, or just recognize its only one game and one game of being in full wolverine regalia isn't worth sacrificing your dreams. whether you think its right or not, its the way if the world
|10 weeks 3 days ago||love that||
love that movie.
In reagrds to the weather, there was a funny tweet going around last night showing the hourly forecast from weather dot com where it showed rain hour after hour until noon where all of a sudden its supposed to be sunny. The accompanying quote said something to the effect of "after 16 straight hours of rain, Harbaugh said 'Let there be football'" . I LOL'ed. Cool story bro!
|10 weeks 3 days ago||the chocolate and peanut||
the chocolate and peanut butter treats are delicious, and as i live in Ohio, they are ubiquitous. Chocolate and peanut butter is my favorite kind of candy/ice cream. Alas, I cannot eat them because: marketing.
Can someone start a candy company up there and call them Shuss Mountain Oysters or something? Ill hang up and listen
