Events that disappointed more than the SI story

Soooooooooooo, that story totally sucked.  Some other people got tats?  Sweet.  That was built up so much I can't believe how terrible it was.  To pick up the mood, I thought it might be fun to list things that were built up and disappointed you more than the SI story.

For me, I can think of 2 things.  1) Prom.  Geesh, that was a lot of money for a dance.  It gets hyped up your whole life and then it really is just an average time.  It is basically a party that you have anytime in HS, except you spend a lot of money on dinner and your clothes and there are teachers there instead of the parents being out of town. 

2) Lost finale.  That show was awesome, and then the finale episode revealed nothing.  So many unanswered questions.  I was pissed really at the whole finale season, but the last episode was the straw that broke the camels back.

What about my fellow Mgobloggers?  Has anything disappointed you more than this incredibly over hyped story?  Besides this thread, that is.

The 2007 season and the 2010 MSU game.

As a human being....

Radiohead's last album is up there. 

Maine lobster. Dunno if it was just the restaurant or if I'm just not a lobster guy, but for $30+ it was extremely bland.

Interesting comment.  I thought TKOL ranked right up there with Amnesiac and OKC. 

I like that they mostly don't appear to give a shit what anyone thinks - they just record what they want to.  TKOL is a solid example (IMHE).  Something of a departure from In Rainbows (which I thought was quite bad). 

Anyway, it's too subjective a topic to treat in this forum, but I was intrigued by your inclusion of Radiohead.

What exactly was so disappointing about the article? No, a point shaving ring and prostitution scandal weren't brought up, but do you know what was?

NINE more active players that were implicated, including 4 possible defensive starters for OSU. Drug allegations. Pryor raiding the Osu equipment closet and selling it. Rose bowl tickets traded for a Tahoe. If you were actually disappointed by this article, you seriously need to temper your expectations.

Not to mention, without this article, tressel would likely still be the Ohio state head coach.

This.  Anyone hoping for a nuclear bomb was probably wasting their time.  But this story does two things:

1) portrays the Ohio State program in one of the worst lights imaginable: associating with dirtbags and felons, Terrelle Pryor stealing from the equipment room (but everybody steals), smoking weed like it's their job, lying, backstabbing, and all the salacious embarrassing crap.

2) shows that the OSU admin wasn't telling the truth about "these are the only six players, there is no pattern of noncompliance here, we don't have a problem, no sir" - in fact, just the opposite was true: OSU football is practically defined by hanging out in tattoo parlors in the worst parts of town.

And SI has all the details and you can bet they'll be more than compliant when the NCAA comes ringing.

The tatt thing is certainly sleazy. Ultimately, though, I don't think people care all that much that some kids sold jerseys for tatts. It's just not the biggest deal. And it doesn't suggest a competitive advantage.
