You've basically heard only the worst Steve Miller song then.

I cannot possibly upvote this enough. I am guilty of tailgating at times - BUT - when, and only when, there are two people going the same speed in two different lanes and I can't get by, and nor can the people behind.
I recently saw an online poll: what driving behavior irritates you the most? I'll wager that half the people that picked tailgating are that sort of person. Lanes are for driving at the same speed as the guy in front or behind. There are extra lanes so that people can go faster or slower. Do NOT fly in formation. It is extremely rude and is the cause of a lot of traffic slowdowns. I completely agree: tailgating is the only way there is, aside from flashing the lights which people also find rude, to convey "please stop holding up traffic."

Black Betty is a fucking shit-ass song and you're right, the first 30 seconds come on and I'm like, cool, and then 10 seconds later I think, what am I doing??? this is Black Betty, it's the worst song on the radio. (Well, on the stations I listen to.)
The way you think about Bob Dylan, I think about Lenny Kravitz. I think Lenny Kravitz is the guy white preppy people listen to in order to claim a multicultural interest in music. Especially back in the 90s.

I upvoted before the Hitler edit but I would do it again if I could because Godwin.

Warm climates are overrated. I don't think a place is an awesome place to visit or live just because it's got beaches and sun. I enjoy the beach but I don't consider it the ultimate vacation destination. Warm winter weather means obnoxiously sweltering summer weather and boring seasonal changes. There's nothing glamorous about Miami or Florida in general and I would be miserable living in LA or its environs.

Tomatoes are terrible. I always make sure to ask for burgers without them.

Another example of Not As Hot. And the reason is Emmy Rossum's singing voice.
|11 hours 9 min ago||I'm not sure why this idea||
I'm not sure why this idea exists that UConn is "settling." It's a mid-level program. The vast, vast majority of BCS coaches (not including the AAC) were head coaches elsewhere first, or hired from within for continuity's sake. I can think off the top of my head three coaches that got their first head coaching job at a BCS level school and were hired from outside the program: Paul Chryst, Kevin Wilson, and Will Muschamp. Muschamp is Exhibit A of why schools don't usually do that. Wilson is at Indiana, which isn't exactly a destination. And Wilson, like Narduzzi, is a Broyles Award winner - and Indiana is the job he ended up with. If Narduzzi is holding out for a Florida type offer he's going to be at MSU a long time. A job like UConn is right in the wheelhouse of what he ought to be looking for.

The Big Lebowski really isn't that great a movie. I don't hate it, I just don't come close to the hero-worship of the Dude. I've never been impressed. And Napoleon Dynamite outright blows.
The sexiest actress in Hollywood isn't Megan Fox or Mila Kunis (she's close, though) or Jennifer Lawrence or any of the much more popular names, it's Emmy Rossum.
Plus, I think Smashing Pumpkins is an absolute shit band, but secretly enjoy Livin' La Vida Loca and don't hate Nickelback, Creed, or Coldplay.
|18 hours 5 min ago||The answer is two in the next||
The answer is two in the next two years. That's a bare minimum, really. They just have to be against the right teams. I think three would be a better answer, but let's start with two and go from there.

Let's face it though: I know that's not what was specifically said here, but when people complain about Dirks, foot speed is not usually why.
The platoon is probably a good idea, and Davis will be very useful in PR situations, but hopefully people aren't expecting him to be an upgrade at the plate, except to the extent that the platoon does that.

It's hard to claim an entirely private punishment is appropriate when you do something wrong and stupid in front of a lot of people. One of the lessons to be learned from stupidity is that if you do it publicly, expect to have the consequences (at least somewhat) publicized too. Goes hand in hand with the punishment.

But you're certainly being a puss about being in the minority in an Internet discussion. The overwhelming opinion is you're wrong (and it has nothing to do with communism) and you don't seem to be taking it all that well.

I wish you would stop using trivializing words, like, "some snow throwing" to make it sound like you're being ever so reasonable. Yes, I'd be OK with Gardner missing the Game if he did what Pharaoh Brown did.
The fact that you can't figure out the difference between consent and lack of consent is troubling. It's a very simple concept.

That "rose" looks more like a Dum-Dum anyway. He shouldn't be prosecuted for inciting a riot, he should be prosecuted for crimes against art.

Two players with normalized 600-at-bat seasons from their 2013 numbers:
A: .256-12-51, OPS .686. Career BA .276, career OPS .745, career FP .986
B: .260-11-44, OPS .687. Career BA .268, career OPS .693, career FP .986
Obviously one is Davis and one is Dirks. Other than the basepath speed, why is one so obviously better than the other?
The answer is that Tigers fans seem to always hate what they have and want what they don't have.
|1 day 14 hours ago||Most of the critics talked||
Most of the critics talked about nothing but how bad the infield defense was and how slow the team was in the field and on the basepaths, and how bad the bullpen was. DD apparently decided they were right. I realize you may not have been one of them, but finding a guy with Peralta's bat and Iglesias's glove costs $18 million.

I'm not sure that the "lighten up" crowd (which is fortunately small) is the one empathizing with the victims of the mob mentality. The lighten up crowd appears to be mostly comprised of morally bankrupt hypocrites who are remarkably silent when asked (repeatedly) if they'd be OK about having this happen to their elderly father but otherwise loud and proud in their willingness to defend asshattery.
|1 day 18 hours ago||Wow. It's the fucking||
Wow. It's the fucking Internet. It's not like they physically assaulted you. Clearly there is a discussion going on, what do you expect driving right through it? People are so temperamental. #LightenUpFrancis
I find it utterly hilarious that you're whining about being the victim of a herd mentality after taking the side of the herd. How funny. Maybe it's not so exciting having a mob gang up on you after all. And these are just words on a screen; I'd hate to see how your thin-skinned ass would respond if you were the guy in the car.

I love me some Detroit, but I still can't imagine the Bowling Green kids are real happy going to the Pizza Bowl while the NIU team they beat gets a trip to San Diego.

Yes, criticizing people for unprovoked assault is "snooty arrogance."
I hope someone breaks your nose with an unprovoked iceball one day and then calls you snooty and arrogant when you dare to be upset about that.

For another few weeks.

Lots of bitching and whining, I see. We went 7-5, it's not like we were holding out hope for an Orange Bowl at-large invite. I hate spoiled fanbases who think they're too good to play Kansas State in December, which is not a bad matchup itself. We've never played KSU, so that alone makes it interesting. To me, anyway. Not sure about the New-Years-Day-or-I-don't-care set.

Copper Bowl: still one of the best lost bowl names.
If they had started it today, and it didn't have a sponsor name, they'd have just called it the Arizona Bowl. Place-named bowls, with one exception (Las Vegas) are almost as grating as corporate-named bowls. They're boring and unimaginative.

There's that silly rule about "going to the ground" to do a touchdown celebration, isn't there? Otherwise there would only be one acceptable celebration on a day like this.

Conventional wisdom might that the passing game will suffer because of the weather, but I think a receiver has a big advantage here - he knows which way he's going in advance. Much easier to move first than react. Calvin could very well have a beastly game.
