No, seriously, I suck. Fuck me for that.

And, of course, you were fine to begin with. Here to break up problems is all I is, I is.

You laugh now, but you'll be feeling the hurt very soon. Er, whatever.
Nah, on second chance you'll be fine, sorry for causing the disruptiion.

I'm pretty silent about college football at work, but there's this MSU fan that I can always hear over my cubicle wall. He constantly disparages Michigan. Just this last week I heard him talking about how Michigan "lost a couple of guys, and haven't really gained anyone in their places," and how Peppers is "a hell of a player, really putting the team on his back, but who else have they got?" He has just generally been salty that we're ranked above them.
I've been keeping silent while wanting to pull my hair out. I don't really know the guy so I never pipe up (though I hope he's heard me laugh over the wall). I just put my earbuds in so I don't have to hear him talk anymore. No earbuds this week, I'm really excited for anything he has to say.

Could have avoided the confusion by saying PSU's defense instead of this defense. And then your next sentence references seeing improvement next week. So I don't think anyone was out of line assuming you were talking about our defense.
Except, of course, common sense should kick in eventually and the reader should realize that there's not too much to complain about with our defense. And maybe you're not insane, just not terribly specific.

Thread title made me laugh. My mind flashed to him as a guest on ESPN while the chyron reads "Kevin Garnett, Former Michigan Recruit"

Every time I see your avatar I think it's the Alkaline Trio Maybe I'll Catch Fire cover. Yours is happier. Just letting you know.
Anyway, have a good day.

It seems like a chant of "DEFENSE" is only ever used get a defense going to make a stop. I don't think I've ever heard one that was an entire stadium just praising the defense.

It used to be just ND, MSU, OSU, and bowl game. They might be able to open it up a bit with ND out of the picture.

I used to pirate music, I don't anymore. It didn't s stop for any sort of moral or legal reason, I just realized that I didn't need that many songs. I went through a phase where I needed to have every song I wanted to listen to on my phone. I would rarely listen to most of them. Now I just buy and keep around my absolute favorites and listen to the rest on the radio or something. I don't miss it, there's something great about hitting shuffle and not having to skip a lot of songs because they were just throwaways to begin with.
For my all-time favorite artists, I just buy the album blindly. Figure I owe them that much. For new artists, there is most likely a legal free stream of the album somewhere on the internet so I can listen beforehand and eliminate the chance of getting burned on a blind purchase. I end up trying out a lot of new things, buying a few of them, and it works out fine. A subscription service can normally take care of the rest if you need more.

Do you remember that scene in The Social Network where Sean Parker tells Zuckerberg to change the name from The Facebook to Facebook? Same reason: "it's cleaner."
And people dig minimalism nowadays, though I guess a real minimalist would do away with the serifs as well.

If they come up with a better frisbee game, will they change the name to "penultimate frisbee?"
I'll show myself out
|1 year 32 weeks ago||My main problem with this is||
My main problem with this is more a problem with modern music in general. The Victors is a classic. It has stood the test of time and will continue to. Songs now, probably more than ever, are temporary. Their use expires after some time. Go back and look at Grammy winners or nominees from as recent as five years ago. How many of these songs do you still even semi-regularly listen to? I'd guess not that many. Personally, most of my listens along these lines are for nostalgia, not because the songs are that amazing.
In addition, the subject has to be about the University. Even if I love the things that are mentioned, it will always sound like they made a list of things to mention and shoved them into a song. It will be lame. It will not have been created from any actual point of inspiration. This is a big reason why "We Are ND" and similar efforts fail (in my opinion).
Here's how to go about this: don't ask the university or anyone else to be in on it, just make the song and put it out into the universe. If it's really a good song and a good anthem for the university, it'll get picked up.

I don't blindly hate the Seahawks, I actually don't hate the Seahawks at all. Their fans, however, I have found to be annoying and oversensitive.

I also can't stand a lot of the 12th man stuff, especially since a lot of people have jumped on the bandwagon recently and have only known success. As a Lions fan I feel like they're Bran and I'm Old Nan from Game of Thrones and I want to give the "Oh, my sweet summer child. What do you know about fear?" speech.

"We can stereotype wealthy offspring as brats..."
Apparently you can also stereotype all low income people by sampling only your non-wealthy nephews as well. They probably don't want to try new things because that hasn't been an option for them. Part of having less money is having less options. If they are bitter about anything, it's probably because they know that there are a lot of nice things that they can't have. And the type of attitude that you displayed in this post is probably why they resent rich kids. You look down on them.
I'm not saying that all low-income people are amazing people always, but come on. My parents are outliers in their families. They worked hard and earned more money, and we're not rich by any means. But that doesn't mean that the rest of my family is composed of a bunch of uneducated, homophobic, shit people. They're fucking great, but don't worry about that because they aren't the type of people you'd want to hang with anyway.

I actually like right now better than the 90s. There's a wider range of music being made, even if you have to look a little harder to find what you're looking for. I will agree that the good alternative radio days are over.
