OT: The last OT Friday Open Thread of the OT Season

OT: The last OT Friday Open Thread of the OT Season

Submitted by JeepinBen on August 24th, 2012 at 9:09 AM

Well, we made it. This time a week from now there will be College Football to discuss. Tomorrow (or sunday, or whatever) starts Game Week.

As such, here is the last Friday Open Thread and I'm getting it started early. What was the best memory of your summer? What 1 play would make you happiest going into the season? Best new beer you tried this summer? Favorite Tailgate food?

And the big question that's a little more on topic:

Where will you be watching Michigan Football in 7 days and change??? (MGoShoe Countdown goes here)

This is your Penn State Open Thread. Keep the board open for other topics please. I know it's tempting, but lots of other, less disturbing topics are available to discuss. I'm not trying to censor anyone. Instead, this is an open place to discuss your thoughts. Keep it clean. I'll review the thread later and be very unkind to posters who decide to be jerks.

NCAA Punishment:

  • $60 million dollar fine payable to an endowment for sex abuse victims
  • 10 initial scholarships per year for 4 years
  • 65 total scholarships on the roster for four years
  • 4 year bowl ban
  • Free transfers at any point in an athlete's career

That time of the week. Did we even have one last week? I was too busy going America all over everybody.

Anyway there's plenty of actual football talk elsewhere, from the Pac12 wussing out to the PSU fallout, I've really liked the recent either/or questions on the board, so here's some potential discussion topics for this summer Friday:

1. Mustang or Camaro? (Or Challenger for you Mopar folks. Open ended - classics, new, etc)

2. Strawberry or Grape on your PB&J?

3. Follow up to 2: Chunky or smooth PB?

4. SNL Halcyon 1 or 2? (Original cast, Belushi, Akroyd, Chevy,  etc vs. Sandler, Rock, Farley, etc)

5. Most overrated movie of the last 20 years?

Happy Friday everyone. And don't forget we're only  Days from the start of the season

Evidently I'm bored this morning before Profit so he should consider his thunder stolen like Seattle


What's everyone doing on this day before a long weekend? It's gorgeous here in Chicago, 70-80 and sunny. Staying at the desk is going to be rough today, as is the 9 miles I've got to do between tonight and tomorrow to train for a half marathon. Anyone have fun vacation plans? Or have today off so the rest of us can live vicariously though you?

EDIT: and thank you to nmumike for the reminder about how this isn't just a long weekend, Memorial Day is important in and of its self. Take some time to remember/thank those who are serving and have served.

[EDIT:  Negged to Bolivian for stealing my thunder.  Points will return in 10 minutes.]
