well that's just, like, your opinion, man

|2 hours 56 min ago||The Counselor||
I thought The Counselor was a pretty great movie, buy casting Cameron Diaz in her role was a nightmarish choice. By the time she's doing her closing monologue I just want to rip my eyes out. So unconvincing and untalented as a serious actor.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||La Liga > EPL||
While I am a Spurs fan, and follow the EPL far more closely than I do La Liga, it is the superior league of the two. Sevilla won Europa against a Liverpool side that absolutely prioritized Europa over the EPL this year. Champions League final is all Spanish as well. While I wouldn't go so far as calling EPL a JV league, it is certainly behind La Liga in quality.

I was at the 2005 game. Notre Dame opened up a big lead only for us to storm back. Students in the upper deck started chanting "Urban Meyer" at the ND fans in attendance because he had just spurned them to coach at Florida, ushering in the Charlie Weis era.
Miss you, big guy.

Try telling that to an Oregon fan. They think Autzen is loud even when nobody is in it.
|22 weeks 1 day ago||Do you honestly think that||
Do you honestly think that Harris, Morris and Robinson leaving early is Beilein's fault? Was he supposed to tell them to not chase their dreams? What kind of person/coach tells someone that? It isn't as if he was whispering in their ears, "guys, there's no way I want my best players to return to college for another year so we can make a deep tourney run. Here, let me shove you out the door."
Morons? Sounds like the pot calling the kettle black to me.
|22 weeks 4 days ago||Definitely different circumstances||
Like I said, it wasn't a very big opponent. But there seemed to be a lethargy and snootiness about the fans there, like their reputation proceeded them, so they didn't have to try. Then again, I'm definitely biased. I've been living in PNW for six years and Oregon fans are only trumped by Ohio State fans for their perception of themselves. At least Ohio State has won something.
|22 weeks 4 days ago||Autzen||
I went to a game at Autzen a few years back and it was, sadly, very tame. Granted it was not a big time opponent, but the tales you hear of that stadium being louder than loud for any opponent are largely overblown. I'm guessing that if you went to a game against Stanford or Oregon State it would be loud, but the crowd and the atmosphere aren't nearly what they're hyped to be.
West Coast stadiums you should see are, in this order imho:
If we are throwing any sport in any country on our bucket list I would say White Hart Lane in North London before they tear it down.

Your assumption that "nobody forced you to do it" is absurd. Everyone on this board knows that, especially now, you need a college degree to go anywhere in life. Most entry level positions will require some sort of college degree. Unless you are wealthy, the chances that you are going to be saddled with a large amount of debt are fairly high. Congratulations to you for having a father who was willing and able to put you through school. Unfortunately a vast portion of the population isn't so lucky. Stop being a smug prick and have some empathy. Not everyone who is buried up to their eyeballs in debt is looking for a hand out, or to have their debts erased. Most people are just wondering why the cost of tuition has risen exponentially over the past ten years, meanwhile, jobs and wages have not. This is, I think, one of the more important questions that this generation will face.

Kinda sucks when you find out the guy who you are mocking is both a bigger fan AND more knowledgeable than you.

This is a really fantastic piece. Looking forward to many more installments.

I feel like Ninkasi is the brewery you drink when you first get to Oregon, and you think it is amazing. Then you start trying the other breweries in the state and you realize that all of Ninkasi's beers - with perhaps Maiden the Shade being an outlier - taste roughly the same. I can't remember the last time I've had Total Domination.
Agree with you on the wine front, too.

When were you at Cascade last? It has really regressed - from a service standpoint - in the last few years. Their beer is great, but they have really gone down hill lately.

I would drink Stroh's well before I'd drink the Widmer Hefe. It is a terrible beer.

PDXer here. The Crux Half Hitch is one of the most delicious beers I've ever had, probably in my top ten.

You obviously don't live in Oregon. Oregon fans are some of the most obnoxious in the country and this is the first time that they have shut up in the six years I have lived here. It is great. Thank you, Michigan State.

Clint is still going through his terrible twos well into his 30s. He was a whiny bitch at Fulham, I hated when they signed him to Tottenham and of course if he was going to sign with an MLS club he would sign with Seattle, home to the worst, most hostile and abusive fans in all of MLS. He fits their fanbase well. I mean, USA#1 and all, but that doesn't change the fact that Clint is an impudent and petulant child.

I've got an idea: let's criticize the coach for doing what any coach would do in starting their ace in game one. I thought this was the stay calm thread. Maybe you missed the boat on this one.

Also, are you in PDX, or elsewhere in Oregon?

Cherry Tree is absolutely amazing. Every song on there is brilliant, but it doesn't have Fake Empire or Slow Show, which is why I went with Boxer.

I just finished Chasing the Scream - The First and Last Days of the War on Drugs. Really made me think hard about drug regulation in this country and the ways that the war on drugs has been detrimental to our global society. Author is Johann Hari.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Sparty||
I dated a Spartan the entire time I was in Ann Arbor. I wouldn't say I regret it, because getting all of her Spartan friends to admit that Ann Arbor is a cooler party town than East Lansing was, at the time, worth its weight in gold. But, as is usually the case in these scenarios, it didn't work out. Oh well, life is better when you don't have to worry about your significant other throwing it in your face every time Michigan loses a game.

The inference comes from the snarky, "if you just try you can achieve it, big guy" tone of your post. Listen, like WD or don't, whatever, that's not my concern here. My concern is in the seemingly smug, I am better than you because I have a thing and you don't, 5th grade bravado that appeared to be on display. If I overreached then my apologies. Your post just seemed to contain everything I hate and nothing that I love about my alma mater.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||You're the reason||
that Michigan alums are widely considered to be pompous ass-bags by the rest of the world. Have we graduated from - or are we still attending - a world class academic institution? Yes, absolutely. But that by no means makes it okay to crap all over someone who loves the university despite never attending. You should settle down before you hurt yourself and perhaps learn some humility. It will go a long way towards helping you when you get that high-powered, 6-7 figure job you seem to think you deserve simply for being alive.

Perhaps you should reread the article, because it is actually quite insightful. Goodell isn't responsible for player's actions, but he is responsible for both their continued employment and the reputation of his league. The fact that he suspended Ray Rice for 2 games for dragging his unconscious wife through a casino was bad enough. On top of this he either failed to see if there was an elevator video, failed to watch it despite knowing of its existence, or watched it and decided that 2 games was okay, one for each blow that he landed on a woman's head.
