Roadhouse, you say? https://youtu.be/lGYEX34fvzs

OK, seriously, how do you embed a video anymore? Can you? I don't see any on the board anymore...

Well, damnit, I'm in the wrong thread now on top of everything else. MGoBlog 3.0, you've won this round.

Roadhouse, you say? https://youtu.be/lGYEX34fvzs

(I'd embed the video, but I just realized I no longer know how to do that, or even if it's still possible since I don't see anyone else doing it).

Hell of a writeup, Skypanther man.

AAAAAARRRRRRRRGGGHHH. Damn, Sweden, a few more seconds and you walk out with a point. But that was one hell of a sweet shot.

Just yesterday I was taking a memory trip back to when I was in kindergarten. The nostalgia might have been even more pronounced if I'd read this thread first.

About @#&*$%^!! time. Put those Final Four banners back while we're at it.

06/22/2018 - 11:39am So Baker Mayfield has…

So Baker Mayfield has achieved the star power necessary to simply go by "Baker" and everyone will know who that is now? I saw the title and I thought someone baked Cowherd a cake with some kind of snarky message on it, like "I don't care what a cow heard, I've got no secrets from a cow." Except that's a lot of letters for a cake.

In the immortal words of Bum Phillips, 

"He can take his 'un an beat yer 'un, or he can take yer 'un an beat his 'un."

06/21/2018 - 10:46pm Oh God. Please don't tell me…

Oh God. Please don't tell me he's going to end up on a burned out Cleveland team. Peppers to the Browns was sad enough, but this... 

06/21/2018 - 10:45pm You forgot about Voskuil…

You forgot about Voskuil because he's not the GM of the Lakers. Rob Lowe... I mean, Rob Pelinka is.

Probably a better recruit than the guy who is Usain Bolt's face pasted on Gary Coleman's body.

06/20/2018 - 5:40pm A little surprised the that…

A little surprised the that no. 5 ranked player in Ohio at any stage of the cycle would not be considered a full-on four star. 

06/19/2018 - 6:41pm Awesome. I'd gotten my fill…

Awesome. I'd gotten my fill of EMCC. Buddy was just wearing me down, and as much I enjoyed getting to know the players and the circumstances that landed them in the middle of nowhere, I'm more than happy for the change of scenery. Compelling series.

He sounds like Horatio Sans doing a satire of a south-of-the-border announcer.

My complaints are mostly wrt visual design, but I'm finicky about such things.

If the site stays up instead of going straight 404 during games, it will be a worthwhile sacrifice.

Every time I read that name, I just keep thinking...

"Ask your doctor if Quavaris is right for you."

Totally piqued my interest about Spain's team. Cool.

06/13/2018 - 12:11pm It's not hard to imagine…

It's not hard to imagine. Jersey "officials" can be highly persuasive.

"Gee, that's a nice little World Cup you got yourselves there. Would be a shame if something were to happen to it."

I'm an addict. An addict isn't going to quit just because the crack house got some new and questionable interior decoration.

Perhaps we should get an auto-bid for a combined "Canmexus" team, which might be decently competitive. 

06/13/2018 - 11:49am You must mean the one we're…

You must mean the one we're going to build along the border with our biggest existential national security threat: Canada.

06/12/2018 - 10:34pm Here's an out of the box…

Here's an out of the box choice for sheer range: Steve Carell. 

Compare the roles he played in "The Office," "40-year Old Virgin," "The Big Short," and "Foxcatcher." That's so much range the deer and antelope could play on it.

06/12/2018 - 11:25am I concur. As the saying goes…

I concur. As the saying goes, "Soccer is a gentleman's sport played by hooligans. Rugby is a hooligan sport played by gentlemen." But mostly, it's about drinking and singing to take your mind off how much it physically hurts.

Give blood. Play rugby.

Reddit. Come for the racism, bigotry, misogyny, nativism, and bullying. Stay for the family board games.

I hear it's just an extension of politics by other means.

06/10/2018 - 11:21pm Wow. He's dense, indeed, if…

Wow. He's dense, indeed, if his self reported 258 lbs. is accurate. That's a spicy meatball coming downhill clearing out a hole for Higdon and Evans.

06/10/2018 - 1:43am I'd much rather have an…

I'd much rather have an offense that can execute 28 plays consistently than one with 1000 plays it can't execute.

06/09/2018 - 2:28am I think he goes. There's no…

I think he goes. There's no way they're going to build an adequate roster around him in a single offseason. He wants to walk into a situation where he's the missing piece. I watched how he went to the trouble of saying goodbye to everyone from the ushers to the ball boys... he sure had the body language of someone who's done in Cleveland. I don't blame him. 

06/08/2018 - 11:29pm Never been much of a "foodie…

Never been much of a "foodie" (I usually measure my enjoyment of dining out with the "Chipotle Test," which is "Am I enjoying this $X meal as much as I would a $8 burrito bowl at Chipotle?") but he really made me appreciate the whole process that goes into a meal, and even more, how inextricable food is from culture. It's impossible to separate one from the other-- you can't understand a place without understanding the food, and vice versa.

Loved the way he would just "take one for the team" when some tribal chief in a village somewhere would offer him something vile, knowing how much it would disrespect the whole culture if he said no. Braver than I'd ever be with food. Great spirit and bon vivant, under the money and fame, all people are just people with the same troubles. Sad end.

06/07/2018 - 6:37pm Ban social media while we're…

Ban social media while we're at it. It's a toxic cesspool of hate, tribalism, and baby pictures no one wants to see except the grandparents.

06/07/2018 - 6:32pm Dept of Interior is making…

Dept of Interior is making it legal to shoot wolves or hibernating bears in their dens. So, I don't think it really takes that much dedication or careful study of nature to shoot sleeping animals in a confined space.

06/07/2018 - 6:27pm What the hell, man. You're…

What the hell, man. You're lucky you live in this country, because in some places if you do that with an Oreo you get institutionalized quick, and probably rightfully so. 

06/07/2018 - 6:20pm 1. All beer tastes like piss…

1. All beer tastes like piss.

2. There is no ethical way to eat an animal, though some ways are less unethical than others.

3. Superhero movies are unrelenting shit because the scripts uniformly awful. 

4. Any team that is threatening to start JBB at LT is not going anywhere good this year.

5. Brady could have done better than Gisele. Bridget M was way, way better looking.

06/07/2018 - 11:50am Whoa, where did you come…

Whoa, where did you come from? I thought you were in exile in Siberia someplace.

06/07/2018 - 12:14am Yup yup, feeling the same…

Yup yup, feeling the same way. Part of it was that the comments in the old version were encapsulated fully, like little index cards, and it made it easy visually to browse through. The current version has some lines that aren't borders, and no lines that are borders, i.e. the comments are "floating in free space" as it were. Visually, less distinct.

Will take some getting used to... but who are we kidding, I'm an addict and not going to stop using just because the crack house got a remodel I don't really like.

06/07/2018 - 12:06am Cosign all of these. I…

Cosign all of these. I understand the proprietors wouldn't have done it without serious technical necessity (e.g. stability, etc) but the user experience has really taken a hit. The visual design of the old one had better definition in the visual set-offs (for example, from one comment to another, from one post to another) and was much "cleaner" to my mind.

On the upside, I'm already more productive at everything else in my life. So there's that.

Plus ça change.

06/06/2018 - 4:28pm I adopted a new lab (2.5…

I adopted a new lab (2.5 years old) after the death of my previous guy and wasn't "ready" at the time, per se, but I had time off before starting my new job in Cali and felt I wouldn't have the opportunity to bond with the new guy if I waited too long. But there's no "replacing" the one you lost, there's just being open to new experiences. 

On that note, I notice a lot of people immediately suggest a "new puppy." Unless they're using puppy generically to mean dog, I'd put in a good word for an adult dog. One of the reasons we're massacring millions of adoptable pets in this country every year is our puppy/kitten fetish. They're just as lovable when full-sized, and for fuck's sake, don't buy from a breeder and encourage more breeding.

06/04/2018 - 1:54am Someone got to you.

Blink 3 times if there's someone in the room with you right now holding a gun.

06/03/2018 - 11:04pm Agreed.

"Inveterate sociopaths" would be more accurate than "hooligans."

06/02/2018 - 11:08am Damnit, Warde

bring the S.S. Bill Martin into the marina and get the cannon fuses lit. This better be you by Monday morning, bub:

06/01/2018 - 12:09am somebody go check on MGrowOld

because that game probably either killed him or made him snap so completely he's going to be on the news by morning.

06/01/2018 - 12:02am I don't know why he's even been there the past two years

He got Cleveland their parade. Check that box. He should have just said "Peace Out" and gone hunting more rings with A-level talent around him.  

05/31/2018 - 11:57pm The thing I just come back to with MJ vs. LBJ

is that MJ never won a ring without the benefit of at least two other All-Stars. He had to have that all-star power forward (first Horace Grant for the first 3 titles, then Dennis Rodman for the next trilogy) to make it work. 1994-5 season where he came back, he was playing lights out but they got hammered by the Magic in the playoffs because they couldn't cope with Shaq in the frontcourt-- he couldn't overcome that even with Pippen. 

I just don't think MJ could have racked up all the finals trips LBJ has made happen. Not seeing it.

05/31/2018 - 11:50pm Not a Cavs fan and not really an LBJ fan

but my god, I've never felt so sorry for a great player. He is just anchored by his mediocre teammates and up against lousy calls and a death squad opponent. 

 

05/31/2018 - 11:41pm and, of course, Draymond can't miss an opportunity to troll

and bait the dude into getting into a scuffle.

05/31/2018 - 11:39pm Usually when someone points "scoreboard" it's taunting

in that case, LBJ was like, "No, SERIOUSLY JR, LOOK AT THE SCOREBOARD YA DUMB BASTARD."
