All of my part-time jobs sucked, so I'll toss those. My first "real" job sucked most - funneling people who got sentenced to community service through various municipal "volunteer" tasks. For example, a guy gets sentenced with 40 hours of community service for DUI. He gets connected to me at the City of [not telling], where I put him to work on the back of a truck that picks up yard debris or with a janitorial crew. Naturally, his work and attitude sucked. I was threated a few times. My co-workers hated me (either because they were staunch union or the dude just smelled bad).
I hated waking up in the morning.

Lots of Walmart gear. And they bring a little noise.
In 2011, The Game felt primal over there. Our tribe vs theirs. Ater the game a guy next to me was yelling at a group of red jerseys making their way up the steps: "GET IN YOUR CARS! TAKE 23 SOUTH! TURNS INTO 75. KEEP GOING F***ING SOUTH UNTIL YOU GET BACK TO OHIO!!!"

Exactly. That's why I prefer the endzones/corner sections for big games. Preferably the north sides.

This thread gives the poster a chance to tell the world he hates baseball. He doesn't like it so you shouldn't like. Nobody should like it. Etc.

Post-Maryland (or our bumblebees), these might be pleasing to the eye. By comparison.

I, for one, was distracted by the hypothetical 1v1 driveway BB. Theatre of the mind.

The difference is that the shirt merely points out a quantifiable fact. And the numbers seem to piss of the detractors more than anything else.

I could easily see a reporter leading Heitzman into those quotes.
Reporter: So why are you tranferring?
Heitzman: I wanted a chance to play offense for one more year and I wasn't sure I was going to be able to do that with a new coach. He was going to change things. But I got earned my degree from UM and now I have an grad school opportunity at OU.
Reporter: Gonna change things, Huh? Like make you work out at TE against other players? [knowing that all new coaches are likely to evaluate every player on the team].
Heitzman: Yeah. He was gonna make me try out against my team mates at TE.
Reporter: That's gotta suck, trying out for a position you grew up playing after you gave everything you had to Michigan.
Heitman: I guess.

I don't think we disagree about your intent, but I wasn't clear about that at all. Sorry. Let me clarify: I don't see the benefit to anyone by posting this video - regardless of whether it is in your thread or the Freep's so-called reporting. I'm sick of the tabloid mentality that generates useless FOIA requests. This guy did something bad, but he's a human being. And the Freep used to be better than this.

I'm pretty sure the Michigan fan was wearing his "Our Stadium is Bigger than Yours" t shirt.

I had an ND fan talk about Brady Quinn a few years ago the same way we defend Denard. Both flashed short-ish stretches of brilliance which inevitably gets somewhat exposed. Both were charasmatic. ND wanted to believe that Quinn was Montana. We were ready to assume Denard was a morph of AC/Desmond/Woodson. We're realistic now about Denard, but I want him to succeed at whatever he does. I wonder if ND feels the same way about Brady Quinn.

Cash can also be used to influence decisions. Look it up.

Or I never watched Star Wars. Seriously.
GoT sucked this season. Sorry.

Drunk driving is bad. So is name-dropping or whatever else he tried to do. But I'm not sure why this thread exists.

This last episode of TD was better than anything from GoT last season.
As an aside, HBO would not air drek like The Brink if not for their need for content. Netflix as an original source of programming is slowly compelling HBO to take shows it used to pass.

Kelly, Butler and Black listing Clemson. This year's Ole Miss (circa '13)?

Yep. The best post-modern Bo team. Run well using a stable of backs ranging from speed (Tony Boles) to power (Bunch, Hoard). Mix in the occasional bomb to McMurtry/Calloway. Suffocate you on defense. The '88/'89 team was the best one I remember at Michigan in my lifetime.

Oh - you must be a [Jets, Dolphins, Steelers, Colts, Eagles, Bills] fan. Got it.

Glad I wasn't the only one. if I could find a way to apologize to everyone in my section during that game, I would. I showed up just as Denard completed that longish arm punt to Hemingway (?) right in front of me in the southwest corner. Laugh-cried through the whole thing..."BEAT O-HI-O"......Long post-game at the tailgate.....thought we were back.

ESPN refers to itself as "The World Wide Leader in Sports." It is actually displayed as such on my Chrome tab when I go to the website.

We would coordinate attacks against the frattiest looking or drunk/loud LI beauties. Visiting fans were generally left alone by my crew.
After halftime, and after the usher took down the Purdue pennant, we smoke a pinner under shelter of the aluminum wall. Bo's offense never seemed so fascinating and the marshmallows, at this stage, were eaten rather than thrown.
This routine continued, week after week. Believe me when I say it was the best of times.

NBC aires a program called "Sunday Night Football." Perhaps you've heard of it. It's the highest rated weekly program on television.

I'm not sure he "can" do it, since I haven't met anyone that actually chooses to listen to his show.
Cowherd is the sports talk equivalent of late '90's shit-rock gods "Creed" or modernday "Nickleback." Nobody likes them, but everyone has heard their music because its crammed into drive time terrestrial radio.

I'll piss off the dog owners among our readership: if a dog appears to be hurting my toddler, I would relocate it. Hard.

Obviously, the deal got under the skin of ND and OSU. I am suprised that our diminutive male sibling has remained quiet. Time for someone to bait Dantonio.

Two dudes show up in Ohio State gear and they're "trolling" the SEC?
edit: I'm not questioning the OP use of the term "trolling." More like questioning ESPN's characterization.
