Make sure it buys you dinner first.

12/11/2018 - 2:35pm I'll bring the vodka.

I'll bring the vodka.

12/07/2018 - 6:39pm And unless I've forgotten,…

And unless I've forgotten, he's done it without a whiff of scandal. Excluding McGary going one toke over the line, of course.

12/07/2018 - 2:41pm "Where's the Ka-Boom? There…

"Where's the Ka-Boom? There was supposed to be an Earth-shattering Ka-Boom!"

12/07/2018 - 1:19pm Amen to this. I had four…

Amen to this. I had four relatives (all gone now) who served in combat in WWII. My step-dad was a forward artillery observer in the ETO; one uncle was one of the original First Ranger Battalion (Darby's Rangers), which was wrecked in the Anzio Campaign; another uncle was a Marine on Guadalcanal, (he hated rice because he'd had to eat so much captured Japanese rice that the sight of it made him sick); and another uncle was in the 25th "Tropic Lightning" Division and was killed in the Philippines on St. Patrick's Day, 1945. I have the flag that covered his coffin.

Bless them all.

Followed by a "Torches & Pitchforks" function which will drive the offending OP from the city walls, and sow his fields with salt so that nothing shall ever grow there again.

12/05/2018 - 9:26am Tell him that if he shoves…

Tell him that if he shoves Skittles up his butt, he can fill a cooler with the color of a rainbow.

Just to see if he goes for it.

12/05/2018 - 9:20am The thing I found amazing…

The thing I found amazing about this bit is that they all kept straight faces while doing it.

12/04/2018 - 3:04pm It ain't over yet.

It ain't over yet.

12/03/2018 - 1:51pm He indicated he wanted…

He indicated he wanted something that would be useful to subscribers, has the potential to influence the University but not hidden behind a paywall...

Does that mean hookers and blow are off the table?

Asking for a friend.

12/03/2018 - 1:39pm In Brady's case, the…

In Brady's case, the squirrel was aware of the acorn, just not fully aware.

12/02/2018 - 5:25pm User name checks out.

User name checks out.

11/30/2018 - 1:14pm Especially when they're…

Especially when they're paired with my corduroys with the elastic waistband from Sears.

11/29/2018 - 4:16am Fair point. I meant "tiny"…

Fair point. I meant "tiny" as in "circumference." In her heels, she was easily six feet.

 

11/29/2018 - 3:55am WHAT???

WHAT???

11/28/2018 - 7:36pm I never saw it, but I heard…

I never saw it, but I heard it wasn't much good. I was in it, as an extra in the black-tie event scene where Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince meet. I learned two things:

1. Being an extra is a lot of sitting around and eating snacks for minimum wage.

2. Gal Gadot is a little tiny thing, and just as gorgeous in person as on screen. Yowza.

11/27/2018 - 5:10am My Grammar Nazi complaint is…

My Grammar Nazi complaint is when people use the redundancy "revert back" (as if you can revert forward.)

Think of yourself in a car. You can go in reverse, or you can go backward. You don't go reverse backward.

(Thanks to my 10th grade English teacher for that lesson that I never forgot.)

11/27/2018 - 4:46am And after that, Devin Bush…

And after that, Devin Bush can take aim at the moron who thought "Dilly dilly" was a good ad slogan.

11/27/2018 - 4:41am My grievance: Redundancy.

My grievance: Redundancy.

Example: " ... you look like an inbred version of an MSU fan."

My comment: Is there another version of an MSU fan?

 

(Kidding aside, I agree with your complaint on "'Cause." It saves all of two letters. Big whoop.)

 

 

11/25/2018 - 10:04am And erectile disfunction. …

And erectile disfunction. (Mentioning for a friend.)

11/24/2018 - 3:55pm I heard the OSU fans…

I heard the OSU fans chanting "Overrated!" I desperately want to argue with them, but ... 62-32.

And I'd almost forgotten - if it weren't for that fuck-up on the kick-off, we wouldn't be this close.

Edit: 62-39. BFD.

11/24/2018 - 3:23pm Yeah, but he sure is hell on…

Yeah, but he sure is hell on the bottom-of-the-barrel and the middle-of-the-road teams, isn't he?

11/24/2018 - 3:16pm Sure. Because why not

Sure. Because why not

11/24/2018 - 2:55pm And now it's gone from bad…

And now it's gone from bad to ugly.

I've never been sure as to exactly who is calling the plays. But if it is Harbaugh, then he's going to have to take a hard, unsparing look at himself, and consider whether or not he should any more.

And now a panic interception. Because of course.

11/24/2018 - 2:00pm Has there even been one…

Has there even been one hurry? One time where Haskins had to throw the ball away to avoid the sack? He's getting all damn day back there.

I guess somebody forgot to tell OSU about Don Brown's oh-so-ferocious defense.

11/24/2018 - 1:12pm Every time I see somebody…

Every time I see somebody run one of those things against Michigan, I wonder the same thing: Why the hell don't we do that?

Or is it not Manbaw enough?

11/24/2018 - 4:26am "'Scuse me while I whip this…

"'Scuse me while I whip this out."

 

- Harbaugh, displaying the offensive "package" he's been saving for this game.

11/23/2018 - 8:58am One of the joys of my…

One of the joys of my Thanksgiving weekend is watching football while eating the traditional leftover turkey & stuffing sandwich covered in gravy.

Rooting for Scott Frost and Nebraska would kill my appetite for it.

Go Iowa.

11/22/2018 - 8:51am I'll give five:

That Jim…

I'll give five:

That Jim Harbaugh came home, that Don Brown came here, and that Shea Patterson transferred here.

That Grant Newsome will have two good legs to carry him to whatever success he achieves.

And that Berkley Edwards wasn't as severely injured as it first appeared.

Happy Thanksgiving, and Go Blue!

11/19/2018 - 8:07am Poor ol' Kelly. Probably saw…

Poor ol' Kelly. Probably saw weed become legal in Michigan and thought, "Damn - where was this in 2001?"

11/18/2018 - 1:43pm I'm sure Indiana's defensive…

I'm sure Indiana's defensive back didn't mean to coldcock Berkley Edwards with the crown of his helmet, either.

Sarcasm aside, here's wishing the best to young Mr. Edwards, and hoping that wasn't the last time he's in a Michigan uniform.

11/17/2018 - 5:16am Every time I see something…

Every time I see something like this, I can't help imagining what's going through the actor's miind:

I have a BFA from Northwestern. I've done Ibsen, Chekhov, Miller, and Shakespeare in the Park. I even got a small part in a soap once.

And now I'm a bearded laxative.

Damn - my family is never gonna let me hear the end of this!

11/16/2018 - 3:54am Do you want the kid to be…

Do you want the kid to be beaten up in school?

11/16/2018 - 3:44am This stinks, but I can…

This stinks, but I can understand it. A Memphis kid wants to play in his home state, in front of family & friends. Yeah, UT isn't going to be challenging for the SEC title anytime soon, but if they get the 8-win season that another poster mentioned, they'll be in somebody's bowl. And Gray has a good shot at being the #1 guy from Day #1. That lets him showcase his talents, and if he's good enough, he leaves early for NFL $.

So I can see the logic ... but yeah, it still stinks.

11/13/2018 - 1:51pm Hey, at least there was a UM…

Hey, at least there was a UM connection, and it's current news. As for the rest - ah, mistakes happen, and you owned it. You're OK.

Besides, this is nothing compared to some of the posts in OT season. Some of those are so far out of left field, I halfway expect to see a Friday Night Aerosol Huffing Thread one day.

11/13/2018 - 8:59am Or conceived in its bathroom.

Or conceived in its bathroom.

11/13/2018 - 3:34am You know that old saying, …

You know that old saying, "Looks can be deceiving?"

I'd say this is one case where they aren't.

11/12/2018 - 4:38am "All Durkin had to do was…

"All Durkin had to do was not be an asshole and show compassion ..."

True - although in regards to these traits, DJ has a lot of company in this world.

11/11/2018 - 2:46pm +1 for the Bobo Brazil…

+1 for the Bobo Brazil reference ("from Benton Harbor, Michigan!")

He and Flying Fred Curry were my favorites.

11/10/2018 - 4:41pm That was his one mistake for…

That was his one mistake for the year. Better he makes it now than against OSU.

11/10/2018 - 3:16pm I think Valenti's more of a…

I think Valenti's more of a Wormtongue.

11/08/2018 - 2:09pm Well, some of those rocks…

Well, some of those rocks ARE pretty adorable.

11/07/2018 - 2:48pm Who do I want to see on the…

Who do I want to see on the field? That's easy:

Cameron Cheeseman - long snapping on many, many extra points.

11/07/2018 - 2:45pm And that old Lionel Richie…

And that old Lionel Richie song, as sung by Sean Connery -  "Shea You, Shea Me."

 

 

I'll show myself out ...

11/07/2018 - 10:07am Actually, this M didn't…

Actually, this M didn't split. The two halves just floated apart, each on its own peaceful little cloud, with no tension whatsoever.

11/07/2018 - 9:16am Quite frankly, it's a pain…

Quite frankly, it's a pain in the ass. But thanks for asking.

11/07/2018 - 4:47am I finally got around to…

I finally got around to trying it twice when I was 25, and didn't like it either time. I never liked that smell, it hit me way too hard (I was always a cheap drunk), and it tasted like shit. So I just didn't understand the appeal.

Plus, the idea of sucking smoke of any kind into my lungs didn't strike me as real healthy.

11/06/2018 - 4:13pm And the most inept surgeon…

And the most inept surgeon and Army officer in fictional history - Maj. Frank Burns - was from Ft. Wayne.

I'd say Indiana's got a lot to answer for.

11/06/2018 - 2:46pm I've never forgiven them for…

I've never forgiven them for being so mean to the Cutters in "Breaking Away."

11/06/2018 - 10:11am The only pizza I remember…

The only pizza I remember turning down was many years ago, when I was substitute teaching in a junior high. I tried the cafeteria pizza: rubbery cheese, ketchup-like sauce, and sausage bits about as tasty as pencil erasers. Two bites was all I could manage.

Always good even when it's bad? I have a friend who would say weed.
