|6 days 19 hours ago||Guess the police were too||
You are commenting that people would've been so impressed by the performance that Brazil put on that Rio would be seen as a utopia and they had to try to rebut the alleged mugging to save the pristine image it had as a result of the olympics. Brazil has just about fucked up every possible way as host including some new and inventive ways. Green water in the diving pool! Astronomical parasite counts! Now they are chasing people off airplanes to try to save face? Guess the police were too busy removing Americans from an airplane on the tarmac because there may be inconsistencies in the story instead of, you know, protecting the remaining athletes, like the British Olympian being robbed at gunpoint yesterday. Wonder what they'll do now that the British Olympic authorities has published a note saying that Rio is an incredibiliy dangerous place and no one should leave the Olympic grounds.

Are you nuts? The perception of the games has been in the gutter for weeks now. Shoddy accommodations, rivers overflowing with shit, green pools, theft, etc. don't think the success of the game hinged on an alleged mugging of 3 athletes.
|6 days 21 hours ago||They lost any chance at good||
They lost any chance at good PR when they had shit and viruses floating in their rivers, Olympic delegations refused to move into subpar buildings, athletes stuff was stolen during a fire alarm, when the pools turned green. I can go on. Their best hope for this was for it to fade away quickly but they are turning a one day story into a week long story. And now reports of another athlete getting robbed at gunpoint.

Ketchup makes everything taste overly sweet and I can't think of one thing I put ketchup on. I use it as an ingredient in barbecue sauce and thats about it.
Sandwiches - mustard (or mayo or oil and vinegar)
Burgers - nothing
Hot dogs - mustard
French fries - hot sauce
Eggs - GTFO

I have zero use for ketchup. Once you stop putting it on burgers, you'll wonder why you ruined your burgers with that stuff. French fries need hot sauce, not ketchup.

Yellow mustard is almost as bad as ketchup

If it was truly a retirement he would forfeit the rest of his contract. Odds are he reached some sort of settlement for part of his salary and is calling it a retirement.

Did you really write that Calloway declaring his innocence staunchly is one of the reasons its smells fishy on both sides? What world do you live in where an accused that proclaims his innocence is reason to call a case fishy? How many of people that were accused of a crime readily proclaim their guilt?

I'm into swimming events more than the track & field events
And gymnastics too
|3 weeks 6 days ago||if it is truly to punish and||
if it is truly to punish and prevent dangerous plays, you shouldn't have to rely on an on-field ref to make the call in the first play to review it. The replay official should be able to buzz down and stop play to take a look at it. Maybe even go the MLB route and have a central reviewer to provide insight. That way you won't have a Morgan situation of someone misinterpreting the rule and you also won't have the 10 uncalled and 2(?) reversed targetings against Rudock

Presumably the stuff they pre-release is the best of the best. If that is the case I don't have high hopes. This looks like TJ Maxx bargain bin stuff

Rather than taking the ball out of bounds, I really think if you foul someone away from the ball, the team that was fouled should get to pick who takes the shot. You didn't prevent someone from going up and shooting a basket, so why should that dictate who takes the shot?

Parking is a pain in the ass. The daily lots require a shuttle bus to get to the stadium which is a royal pain in the ass
|6 weeks 15 hours ago||Plus mock Rutgers all you||
Plus mock Rutgers all you want but there are still a pretty decent contingent of "fans" that go to all Rutgers games and have for years. I can almost guarantee the prices won't really drop. They didn't two years ago and that was even a game during a Jewish Holiday which definitely impacted attendance

Sadly this won't shut up the Joe-bots. Nothing short of a video of paterno sitting on the edge of a bed while Sandusky was molesting boys will convince them otherwise. I just wish they would slink back into their hole and go away

Even better is make the dough 2-3 days in advance and let slowly proof in fridge. Take out of fridge 2 or so hours before using. Flavor 10x better.

It's not gonna work that way. Such a huge contingent of Michigan fans here in the tri-state area that no one will have trouble offloading their tickets which will keep prices high. And the people that to Rutgers games don't care about quality (obviously), they just go for the tailgate and to give them something to do. I've had friends go religiously for years for no reason except it's fun to tailgate and go to a football game.
