This season has been pretty slow paced (though always watchable), but I expect it's all been setup for the next starting with tonight.

You always knew Tuan's fanaticism for the cause was gonna blow up in their face and I think what he did and how they react is gonna mark the beginning of the end for the Jenningses. Should've gotten him that dog he wanted.

Great series if you're looking to get a decided schematic advantage, though to be honest these first three are the best. Books 4-8 were a huge disappointment.

Carr never even had a 3-game losing streak in a single season.

Somebody actually created a college version of Tecmo Bowl (with 2016 rosters) for NES emulators.

08/06/2016 - 6:49am Justified

In S3, mobster and total psycho Robert Quarles is trying to bribe Raylan, and Raylan mocks him with a sarcastic comment asking if he learned that in business school.

Quarles looks real pleased and replies, "UofM. Go Blue!"

08/06/2016 - 6:42am Yep. The founders were

Yep. The founders were doctoral candidates at UM. And in a few episodes, Ann Arbor is referenced as shorthand for the Initiative.

if it's just us, seems like an awful waste of space.

02/21/2016 - 12:33am Because the cage only unlocks

Because the cage only unlocks when there's a winner. If cage matches didn't "work" (i.e., produce a winner), then everyone would still be locked in the cage.

Michael can't imagine any other scenario (like you, I, or any normal person could) explaining how people would get out of the cage, therefore cage matches must work.

 

02/21/2016 - 12:06am That's why it's funny.

That's why it's funny. Michael Scott would expect people to remain in the cage indefinitely.

Much like he expected some result from simply shouting out loud that he was declaring bankruptcy. He's very much a literalist.

Sometimes, when nobody's around, I watch Terminator 2.

01/19/2016 - 7:11am The original Teenage Mutant
The original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie from 1990. Loved it as a huge Turtles kid when it came out and recently watched it with my nephew after we saw the Michael Bay one. Just as entertaining as I remembered.
 
I'm not actually embarassed to admit it (obviously), but I think I'm supposed to be.
12/22/2015 - 7:29pm BattleFrog is the brand name

BattleFrog is the brand name of the obstacle courses. The show is colleges competing on those courses. Like if there was a "Crossfit College Challenge."

Like most of ESPN's programming, I didn't watch the show or even know it existed...

Yup. And Ferrigno coaches their special teams.

Both are definitely enough to give you nightmares, but I gotta agree with justinA Brave New World scared the shit out of me even more.

This webcomic pretty much illustrates why:

07/28/2015 - 1:57am Bryan Harsin took over from

Bryan Harsin took over from Petersen and coached Boise State last year, but otherwise I agree.

07/22/2015 - 4:28pm No, we've never seen his

No, we've never seen his character before.

But we have seen the guy who says "he's everywhere!" That's Mr. White, the guy who executed Le Chiffre (and inconsequentially saving Bond from further torture) and then confiscated the diamonds in Casino Royale.  He was last seen as a member of the Spectre-like organization Quantum in Quantum of Solace, claiming that "we have people everywhere."

So I wouldn't be surprised if Spectre reveals that Oberhauser/Blofeld has had a hand in things throughout the entire run of Craig films.

 

06/01/2015 - 6:50pm There actually were

There actually were occasional screams and battle sounds after the fog rolled in, but they were muted a bit to keep the eerie atmosphere.  You can especially hear them when the Thenn looks through the hole in the Hardhome wall.

I'm assuming the fog was cover for the first wave and that unlike those inside the wall, the wildlings outside never had much of a chance to fight back.  After all, the majority of the wights we saw were waaaay too decayed and skeletony to be the wildlings outside.

04/27/2015 - 8:30pm It's definitely the

It's definitely the Winterfell set.  Which makes sense--with Stannis and his army at Castle Black, it'd be crazy for both Roose and Ramsay to suddenly go south to Moat Cailin and meet two people who are heading to Winterfell anyway.

Well, I mean, it's not like he's quoting himself.  Take it up with Brian.

07/15/2013 - 6:02pm Christopher Nolan, actually

Christopher Nolan, actually (which I'm sure you knew, just had one of those aghh brain moments).  The Batman / Inception / Prestige dude.  He did Insomnia with Al Pacino, too.  The guy doesn't make bad movies.

Embed views count.  There are a couple of exceptions, but none of them apply to Youtube videos posted here.  You're good to go, folks.

Though it is more awesome full-size.

 

06/01/2013 - 2:55am Maybe so, but they also

Maybe so, but they also regressed from 9-4 to 6-7 in 2009.  I'll begrudgingly accept that kind of offensive improvement from Sparty this year.

05/31/2013 - 4:35am WEEKEND

I have all sorts of exciting activities planned.

05/27/2013 - 10:52pm 2012 odds

These were his 2012 odds:

Danny Sheridan @DannySheridan1
Big 10 Title odds: OSU/Mich 2:1, Neb 3:1, UW 4:1, MSU 8:1, PSU 12:1, Iowa 15:1, Illinois 25:1, NW 50:1, Purdue 100: Indiana 500:1, Minn (a lot)

So yeah.  Apparently, in his mind, the only thing holding them back last year were Bell and Sims.  Good luck with that.

04/27/2013 - 4:45pm No problem.

Switching to the OL for the Jets?  Sounds like just another easy day for BWC...

02/27/2013 - 8:11pm This one's still up too:

But if you didn't have to actually get up there to physically spike it, you could end up missing classic entertainment like this:

02/12/2013 - 2:17am Herm?

02/10/2013 - 9:04pm I hope not

Those are terrible odds!

 

 

 

01/07/2013 - 7:57pm Nope

I'm with most of you.  We've already lived with years of SEC dominance hype; I don't see any reason to trade it for far more irritating, less grounded in reality ND hype.  The devil you know and all that jazz.

This pretty much sums up my relationship with the Tide tonight:

01/05/2013 - 8:43pm BOOM Ace'd

01/03/2013 - 2:41am The planets are in alignment

Because there happens to be a rare five Saturdays in November next year, the season gets an extra week and everybody in the B1G gets two bye weeks.

Most notably, Northwestern gets two weeks of prep before their game against us.
