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.

I could stand the recycled plot and wayyy over-the-top antics if the movie was funny, but it's just not. When even Galifianakis' jokes fall flat, you know there's a problem.

 

That being said, it's one of the most quality-disputed films I've ever seen. If you think it looks interesting, go into it with an open mind and you may very well love it.

 

I did, and thought it sucked, but YOU might...

I knida thought it was great that tat-gate has been going on since 2002, and has involved an additional 22 players. This is all great stuff, today has been a glorious day for me. I've done nothing but gloat seeing as how i live just outside of columbus and my wife and her family are all tosu fans, and i just couldnt pass up on the chance.

Charlie Sheen's first webcast. I was there after he had gone nuts on TV, watching online. And then he just banters with his friends and says nothing. That probably killed the whole Charlie Sheen craze.

Y2K.

Disappointing article. But the quote describing him reading the bible in the morning, and then cheating kids at the raffle in the afternoon? Priceless. "That's Jim Tressel."

The biggest disappointment to me was the pettiness of Tressel's villainry.  This is Keystone Kops material.  Mustache-twirling material:

One of Tressel's duties then was to organize and run the Buckeyes' summer camp. Most of the young players who attended it would never play college football, but a few were top prospects whom Ohio State was recruiting. At the end of camp, attendees bought tickets to a raffle with prizes such as cleats and a jersey. According to his fellow assistant, Tressel rigged the raffle so that the elite prospects won -- a potential violation of NCAA rules.

Says the former colleague, who asked not to be identified because he still has ties to the Ohio State community, "In the morning he would read the Bible with another coach. Then, in the afternoon, he would go out and cheat kids who had probably saved up money from mowing lawns to buy those raffle tickets. That's Jim Tressel."

They had an OSU-themed stoner den at the tat parlor--and they had Bo in there too:

On the second floor of the nondescript building that houses Fine Line Ink, Rife created the ultimate Ohio State-themed man cave. Huge photographs hung on walls painted scarlet and gray. Images of Hayes and former Michigan coach Bo Schembechler sandwiched a picture of Ohio Stadium. There were shots from the 2003 Fiesta Bowl, where the Buckeyes won the national title, including one of Tressel. Signature-covered jerseys were displayed, and on a small table was an autographed helmet encased in glass. A large sectional couch sat in front of a big flat-screen television that was hooked up to a PlayStation3.

...next time I have a desire to stare at cavernous vaginas and c-section scars, I'll save myself some money and go volunteer at the local maternity ward.
