there would have been no reaction. Most of the people understood that Lebron had done nothing to string us along this time, and we were all in it at our own risk. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice shame on me sort of thing. now of course, there are always a few knuckleheads, but the majority of fans fell into the hysteria with their eyes wide open. The backlash would have bee no where near 2010.

I'm drinking my standard $15 for 5 liters box wine. Keep hitting refresh on Twitter like a cocaine addled lab monkey because I grew up in Cleveland and I got sucked into this LeBron thing, as much as I tried to resist it. I hate myself

how sorry I am to hear this. My Father died in 1999, 2 weeks shy of his 53rd birthday in much the same fashion. I was at work one day and I got a call and it was already over. Still hurts. My heart goes out to you and your family. Remember the good times, and pass his lessons on to your children.

Adidas is hot garbage. My wife just bought me a pairf of climalite mesh shorts, and they have holes in them after getting washed one time. last adidas shirt I bought started coming apart at the seams after only a couple of rounds of golf. Its just awful quality, and not because Im a "we were better when we wore Nike" guy

my Dad had before he died he named "Blew Hawaii", since he used the Hawaiian vacation fund to finance said purchase. That boat has since been sold and re-named, so its free for your use if you like.

were NFL teams, the sheep on ESPN would never shut up about how "until they can prove that they can win a game in cold weather..." just like they did last season with the Saints. But, since it's the SEC, the fact that they never play a game below 40 degrees isn't even a footnote.

that James Whitley was going to be the next Mr. Charles Woodson. I know I'm being foolish but I dont like 5. And I'm 37 years old, yet I believe in superstition. And this may not even be a susperstition, just me being an idiot. Sue me.

yesterday (dont recall where) while I was looking for Browns news (born in Ferndale, raised in Cleveland) and most of the OSU fans I saw talking about it seemed to think this kid was in for a visit and showed up in OSU garb. Their response was predictable, and they weren't happy when I informed them the kid was in AA for SMSB and not a campus visit. Of course, it took a while for me to explain it to them, but still...

and every time I drive in rush hour traffic and see some jackass doing 85 in the far right lane, then almost cause an accident by cutting off a semi, I think about it. Luckily, I know if I do that with my son in the car, the police will haul me away and turn him over to child services, so I calm down pretty quickly. People just drive like morons around here.

was a great time to be a Wolverine fan going to high school in Ohio, I can tell you that much.
And my vote is for Henson, because that team in 2001 was stacked. Just needed more than a realtively inexperienced Navarre could give.

for years...it was a window into the depths of human stupidity...one guy whose file I worked on lived with burglar bars on his doors and windows, but had a 1378 monthly payment on an escalade. He said he chose to spend nearly double on his car than his house because nobody "could see him driving around in his house"

where fans at the game matter less and less to the financial well being of a team due to insane levels of television money, you would hope some team might eventually realize that they dont NEED to maximize ticket revenues anymore. Back in the day where maybe 2 games a year were on national TV and the large portion of a team's budget was made up by gameday receipts, finding the sweet spot in the ol' supply and demand curve was a good idea. Now, teams get so much from TV that the difference between $60 seats with no PSL fees and $85 seats with PSL's isn't worth it to be pricing your most dedicated fans out.
And the decision makers should also keep the players point of view in mind as well. What I mean is, what do they think makes more of a difference to a player on game day: Having 115,000 screaming fans helping a defense make a stand by making it impossible for an opposing offense to call a play, feeding off the fans' energy and using that to help spur them on to victory? Or, the knowledge that even though the stadium might be 25 percent empty, each person must be a "real" fan because they paid a hefty price of admission? Perhaps it'll be quiet enough in the near future someone might be able to ask during a timeout?

to upvote you as well.
Recently I have been wondering if maybe this signals the beginning of the dystpoian futures we have all read about over the years. Perhaps it's not the computers becoming self aware, or actually taking over, but since we can now quantify millions of data points, see everything on a spreadsheet and sqeeze every last nickel out of everything from football fans to employees, we are basically being "optimized" for someone else's benefit.
Or, I may just have too much free time.
