  1. I feel ya, brother. Same here. Great show. That Nadine is a hoot
  2. Worst fans in my experiences (mostly from long ago): OU and Maryland (yes, really, a bunch of assholes at a BC game). Maybe Ohio State at a Kickoff Classic some years ago, too. They were pretty disgusting. Miami was the opponent and had great fans. (And I believe Miami won.) I hate Aggie culture with a passion, but their fans were always pretty friendly to me one-on-one. Same goes with the UT crowd. The OU fans I encountered in FW were just disgusting human beings. I remember Tech fans being great, but I'm going back to SWC days here. I have no idea what Maryland's problem was
  3. But Time didn't do it. That's the point. Rolling Stone, a magazine that has run rock heroes on covers for decades, did. The NYT used the photo in a much more sterile setting and gave it a different context with the headline. Besides, we see criminals and terrorists on the front page of a (daily) newspaper all the time. Not so a monthly journal of popular culture that considers itself a taste maker. For many years (probably not so much anymore), bands "made it" when they got the cover of Rolling Stone, hence the Dr. Hook song. The message is that this guy has "made it" somehow in pop culture. That's my objection
  4. Well, $35 for a week doesn't seem that bad. It's nuts to me that you can't bring in coolers for the kids, though. Seems borderline dangerous. I'm a capitalist, but something feels exploitative here. I don't see supply and demand at work, just exploitation. I can go see baseball, soccer and even football games for free at tons of small colleges around here. The students sell cheap snacks and drinks for charity groups. However, I'll bet the local youth baseball league (run by a cabal of fascist generals, from what I gather) charges for kids' games. Youth sports are a bit out of control in a lot of levels. They're good for the kids, though
  5. The NYT doesn't put rock stars on its cover. It didn't use The Bomber as a cover line. Same photo, entirely different treatment and context. Who's going to be on the cover of Rolling Stone next week, sexy Ariel Castro? I agree with my buddy at work who designs our magazines. Put the photo on the inside spread of the story. Use something else for the cover, or at least don't present him looking like rock star on the cover of a magazine known for featuring rock stars
  6. Yeah, I know. Oklahoma City is "up there" to a Texan
  7. Pretty much everything is better in the South of England. The North kind of sucks, I think
  8. Chicago is not "up here." Although New York is very grid-like
  9. Um, PR is on DVR, and I haven't watched it yet...so I didn't read your post, Quilter. My wife fell asleep early
  10. The only tolerable part of Philly is that little historic area with Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell and so forth. Also, there used to be a restaurant called The Inn Philadelphia where I once saw a girl take her top off in an apartment across the street. I'm talking bare boobies here
  11. Yes!!!I mean, uh, football! Beer! Hos! I definitely don't watch Project Runway...faithfully...for years
  12. Seriously, that's what horses look like when they see me. Horses hate me. I have nothing against them
  13. SFA, the answer to all of your entirely reasonable questions is, as always, BECAUSE PHILLY SUCKS
  14. Um, OK, you're making my point for me...
  15. Almost all of my close friends are a bunch of Jews and one Bulgarian. None is named ironically, but one of the Jewish guys named his son Aiden, which prompted his friend to say that somewhere in South Boston there's an Irish family naming a kid Schlomo
