Beats are such garbage that they've added metal components whose only job is to make them heavier...seeming like better headphones.
Sony MDR-7506 are about $99 and are excellent headphones. If you want to drop $300 on Sennheisers or those Bose noise cancelling cans, they're TERRIFIC headphones. That's a bit more money than I have to spend, but if your budget can handle it, they are great.

That first album was amazing. It took me a few years to get around to Nirvana. I was much more in the PJ camp at the start.
Alternative music became a parody of itself after awhile, but those first few years were really something special.

Clemson is one of the dirtiest programs in the country. They ran Ken Hatfield out of the program because he WOULDNT cheat.

My freshman year in college....
|25 weeks 6 days ago||inexcusable||
Consdering how dire the circumstances are, it's inexcusable for the officials to be so random on calls/non-calls.
Eliminate the idiotic rule and just allow refs to call a personal foul. No reason for a bad call to linger until the next game.

My dog did not get hit by a car today. I did not bury my father today. No one I know and love was told that they have cancer today.
My team lost a game. They will lose more. Thankfully, they will win more than they lose. And today's loss will just make that those wins that much sweeter.
Sleep well, friends.

I made it through Game Six in '86.
Being a sports fan is often a poor bargain. The losses seem to hurt more than the wins feel good.
You don't ever get over it. It just becomes a part of who you are.
The bright side? I don't know. Universal cooling? The sweet release of death?

He's one of us.
You win as a team. You lose as a team. The wins are sweeter because we did them together. We soften the losses by comforting one another.
If you're going to crap on Blake O'Neill, kindly go ***k yourself.

We must find comfort in the bitter tang of words such as "Wait 'till next year!" We must remind ourselves that it took a herculean effort by a top-10 team and a brief intervention by the gods to beat us.
We must also remember what a friend told me when I got divorced: "Whisky helps."
Sometimes you win. Sometimes you lose. Sometimes it rains.

I'm stuck at work for the next four hours. If anyone has a link to a live feed, I would be most appreciative.

Morton coaches WRs and Drevno coaches the OL.

I guess Peyton Manning's NOT the greatest QB of all time? Ridiculous that people were saying if he won THIS game the debate was over.

I'm having the same problem on chrome. Boo.

Wondering if anyone has a link to the game online?? Firstrowsports has a plug-in ad over the screen. I can hear it....but not see it.

Felman Malveaux...there's a name. I vaguely remember hearing buzz about what he was doing at practice.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||No....||
He was an absolute disaster at NC State. They called him "No Endzone."
|2 years 22 weeks ago||Hellllooooo Heisman!||
Remember that punt return very, very well.
|2 years 24 weeks ago||Oh well.||
Good luck to him. Hope he gets a degree and doesn't end up in the Saban Memorial Hospital.

I sure am going to miss college sports when everybody "fixes" it.

If you took Clemson and the points, that 23 play, 84 yard drive might have screwed it up for you.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||TV||
The people in charge of the networks won't be happy until all of college sports are nothing but a smouldering ruin.
Fox Sports...they have admitted that they don't care about the game. it merely serves as a backdrop onto which they project commercials for other things. Then during those other things, they run more commercials.
Then there's Mickey Mouse and their meme-factory. And now this from CBS.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||BTW||
DIdn't they just build the Dolphins a new stadium recently? Why do they need a new one?
|2 years 34 weeks ago||Same here||
Publicly-supported football stadiums are a terrible idea. There are any number of position papers that back that up too.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||Perspective||
The guy who wrote the "**** My Dad Says" blog wrote a good piece about sports and fans. During a tantrum during the Chargers' Superbowl loss in the 90s, he broke a pretty expensive bottle of hooch that his dad had been saving. After recovering from his anger, his dad reminded him that the players on his favorite team didn't give a damn about him. Why did he care so much about them?
I have to admit, several years ago, my mood was totally dictated by the fortunes of the teams I followed. Once, after a terrible loss, I had my weekend destroyed. It ended up destroying the next week and the following weekend. After the season, I realized that I envied people who didn't like sports. The losses hurt worse than the wins felt good. It had become a bad bargain.
So...I've spent the years after that turning the volume down. I still like sports. It just no longer dictates my mood. It is, as someone once said, just a game.
If you find yourself dressing up like a really crappy superhero and making hype videos where you talk trash to N. Dakota State...maybe you're not spending your time well. Maybe try taking a walk...get some exercise...get rid of those idiotic tattoos. Maybe try and kiss a girl once in awhile. Move out of your mom's basement and try getting a job too.
Hey, back in the day, I was a deadhead. Spent way too much time and money travelling the country and seeing the Grateful Dead. As Jerry Garcia said, "If the only thing you have in your life is the Grateful Dead, you don't have much."
Same could be said for football fans.
|2 years 35 weeks ago||Controversy?||
It's controversial to assert that Southern Cal football gives illegal benefits to recruits?? I think you could throw a dart at a USC roster ten times and hit a guy who received illegal benefits with every throw.

I am available and would be happy to take over play-by-play duties.

Hope he gets a terrific education and meets a nice girl.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||Detroit||
I'm not from Detroit and don't live within 1,000 miles of the place...so I have no skin in the game. But Detroit has lots of land and lots and lots of fresh water. If you have those two things, you will always have a city.
Yes, you have to undo decades of political and criminal and union corruption. No, it's not going to be like it was back in the day...but maybe that's a good thing.
One thing...whenever people talk about the mass exodus from Detroit, it's important to note that the population decrease has taken place in the city limits. But since 1980, the population of the Detroit METRO area has largely stayed the same. Eventually, it will be make more economic sense to move back within the city limits and start filling in those massive gaps currently being occupied by weeds, broken glass and burned out homes.
The influx of young, creative people looking for cheap housing is what fueled a renaissance (of sorts) in both Philly and Pittsburgh. Detroit could see the same thing going on. You need to stabilize your society. That means figuring out a way to address the crime (on some level). There's a whole generation of people that are swirling the drain in a vicious cycle. That has to stop as well.
But you've got land and water. Ask Texas how important that is. Remember when Austin was the place that everyone wanted to move to? Well, it bursts into flames every summer.....
Of course, this is also an article that claims Houston is the *best* city in America. It's easily the ugliest city I've ever been in.
