OT - We Can Do Worse Than That!

Submitted by Everyone Murders on August 26th, 2016 at 8:04 AM

MGoFriends, I've watched the tail end of OT Season as a lurker, and frankly I'm disappointed.  While we've had some moderately bad threads - you know who you are - at no point did a swarm of flies descend on my monitor.

We can do worse.  I believe in the MGoBoard to have some truly awful thread ideas.  I'm looking for suggestions that would make us pine for another Nike shoe thread.  In short, I'm looking for OT threads that would just be a ... (struggles for the right word) shitshow.

Here are some topics that came to mind:


1. Marry One, Murder One, Fuck One – Moderator Edition!

2. No Ragrets - What is your life’s biggest regret?

3. POTUS 2016 – Who You Got? And why?

4. Kate Upton – fit or flabby?

5. Alternate Universe - If 2016 Harbaugh coached 1984 Harbaugh in this offense would 1984 Harbaugh quit or thrive?

6. If you could spend an “intimate weekend” with an MGoBoard member, who would it be and why?

7. Wolverine Devotee – A Psychoanalysis.

8. Favorite MGoSexual Positions – Let’s Hear Them!

9. What’s your Tinder Handle?

10. We know he’s a good coach and a nasty man, but is Mark Dantonio – deep down – loveable?

11. Who’s got a hot mother-in-law? Pictures or it didn’t happen thread!

12. Pit bulls. Great pets with a bad reputation, or bred to kill?

13. Best waffle iron?

14. We probably shouldn’t _____ until Michigan has beaten MSU and OSU. (Wherein we go from beating a dead horse to making dog food.)*

I know you can do better.  Remember, the idea here is to come up with a terrible topic for the board - not to actually discuss them.  So whaddaya got? 

*FWIW, I thought that Mad Hatter's meme, when properly deployed, was like a fine chili con carne - it got better and better over time.

Living in Michigan and then DC meant that I'd have to drive at least an hour to get to one.  So Waffle House was like a guilty pleasure.  The only problem with Waffle House though is that there's so many of them.  Usually, if you find one on the highway, there's another one at the next 45 exits.  And the quality of the food becomes hit or miss.  Lately, it's been more miss in my experiences.

Waffle House is great, but not for their waffles. If you have not had their hash browns customized to your liking, you are missing out on a heaping helping of deliciousness.

Smothered, covered, chunked, country, topped, diced, peppered, and capped...extra crispy. Mmmmmmmmm

For that matter, how the hell does anyone find Kim Kardashian attractive?  Sure, she's got a pretty face.  But that ass is too huge.  And her personality, ego, and fortune are just disgusting. She's an awful person.  Awful.  Not enough bad can ever happen to her...  In fact, that whole family is disgusting.  

I have more respect for Bruce/(what's the name?) than I do for anyone else in that entire family.

I used to think she was incredibly hot, however, this last round of instagrams has ruined it for me.  You could now play a soccer match on her buttocks.  Also correct that her personality coupled with the fact that she is with Kanye F'ing West has destroyed any remaining hotness.  Quite unfortunate

I got nuked several weeks ago for quoting Bo - "To Hell With Notre Dame" in a front page post.  After my account disappeared I saw that a caption to the photo said "banishment for the first person who says 'to Hell with Notre Dame'".  Ooops.  Turns out Brian has an itchy trigger finger.

Apparently I got reinstated that day or the day after for time served.  I did not realize that for some time, so hung out as a lurker. 


August 26th, 2016 at 2:15 PM ^

I emailed Brian that afternoon about the ban being pretty funny but can we also make sure he's not actually banned and Brian obviously agreed. I brought him back and emailed Everyone Murders on the account we have but didn't get a response there. I also left a comment but he didn't lurk on the post that got banned :/.

No, it was just too drunk ago.

The only memory you need from JV that year was him asking his pitching coach "what are you doing here?" after getting shelled by Giants to start off the world series. Too arrogant to think his fastball could be hit by the best team in the league, too arrogant to respect his coach walking out to the mound, all caught on national television. Fuckin. Douchebag.

I actually think JV has matured a lot since then. The significant drop in his average fastball velocity has forced him to relearn how to get batters out. He's gone from a guy who used to ignore scouting reports and rely on his superior stuff to a guy who uses every piece of data he can to gain an advantage. That adjustment has allowed him to carry the Tigers through this summer with a chance to make the postseason. He is currently second in the AL in both IP and Ks, and will finish somewhere in the top 10 in Cy Young votes. He has allowed 2 ER or fewer in 9 of his 10 starts over July and August. The other start, he allowed 3 ER over 7 IP. His competitiveness gets the best of him sometimes and he says things he probably regrets later, but it's not like he's going around and cutting up jerseys in the clubhouse, or throwing teammates under the bus in front of their equipment reps.

To take one of the most historic pitching seasons in the modern era and reduce it down to that one moment is why I hate most sports fans.

I hope you called a radio show to bitch about how "arrogant" JV was or how "old school" Leyland was.

Detroit likes to consider themselves a great sports town but my god the fans are too stupid to even enjoy when they have it good.

I loved Jim and do not belong to the sub-class of humans that would call into a sports talk radio show. JV is arrogant.

You can be the greatest talent in the world and that would mean absolutely nothing if you don't have the proper attitude/mentallity/maturity level. Just ask Iverson, Owens, Bosworth, yada yada yada. It's a long list of athletes who were assholes that ended up with a handful of seasons with great statistics and no great TEAM accomplishments to show for it.

OT - Anyone know why corn doesn't digest the way other foods do?

So, yes, I just made an actual shit show out of this thread.

I don't think it's just asparagus; if you drop any strong-smelling substance into your jars of urine, after a while it'll start to smell like whatever you're soaking in it.  Though I'd sooner pick something like tea or peppermint.

I don't know why you keep around jars of pee and drop things in them, though.  You're really weird, brah.  What you using that toilet for, making hooch?
