  1. But didn't you hear? White people aren't allowed to make that same joke, and that makes some people angry.
  2. It's bad strategy to kick the XP when up by 9 at the end of the 4th quarter. The correct strategy is to take a knee, thus eliminating the possibility of the opponent reducing the deficit to 7 points by scoring on a blocked kick return.
  3. Does Greenwald vigorously defend the free speech right of the liberal media to not invite him onto their programs? And does Greenwald simultaneously criticize conservative media for refusing to promote his RINO counterparts?
  4. But it hasn't always been, and shouldn't be. This isn't a sides thing and this is becoming a common everyday thing. Someone is going to end up hurt/dead. People shouldn't be going to private residences, restrooms, bothering politician's families etc. If you want to argue that Biden's quote wasn't condemny enough for you, that's fair. But let's not pretend that politicians have never been harassed, hurt, or killed before.
  5. Still. Where is one insurrection conviction. What do you put the over/under at. Strange to be proud of such a low bar for Trump supporters.
  6. The same page of the thread also has discussion of a guy who pled guilty to assaulting the police. But those facts tend to skew the narrative and disrupt the strategy.
  7. I think you're being overly speculative here.
  8. Do the inferior players play the same position as your daughter? One thing that I've noticed is that some coaches tend to dole out playing time based on position, not talent. So, a backup forward is more likely to get playing time (compared to a backup CDM) because the position requires less skill. It's fine if the goal is to make parents happy and to give mediocre players a memory they can tell their kids, but it tends to stifle player development.
  9. Biden supposedly picked up votes Meh, everyone knows that the auditors were just a bunch of NINOs. (Ninjas In Name Only)
  10. Punting when you're down 3 scores with less than 10 minutes left is a total "exhausted wildebeest lying down" move.
  11. True story: a good friend (and lurking Footballguy) lives in this school district. I helped him move into his house, and afterwards we celebrated at the local pizza place. It was a pretty dead night -- just me and my friend, plus 5-6 members of the local fire department (along with some of their family members) who were sitting on the other side of the restaurant. They were pretty loud. I couldn't hear everything that they said, but I did hear the N-word at least a dozen times -- including one moment when one of the firefighters pointed to a picture of an athlete on the wall, then said to his young son (who couldn't have been older than 3), "See that? That's a [N-word]." That was several years ago but the town hasn't changed that much since then.
  12. @Mr. Know-It-All, didn't you ever have moments where you thought you might be bipolar, or were there ever times when friends or family suggested that you get evaluated?
  13. When he's filling out the candidate form and he gets to the part where it asks him to list his occupation, does he write in "Perennial Candidate"?
  14. As a former coach and observer of youth boys and youth girls teams......boys tend to want to play through all injuries big and small.....while girls tend to treat every minor nick like it's a career-ender.
  15. Infection rates are high because we've pulled back on mask mandates and social distance restrictions. A better way to examine infection rates is to compare the current spread in "low vax" states to the current spread in "high vax" states. And guess what? Low-vax states tend to have higher infection rates. (Of course, this method also has its flaws, as no two states are exactly alike -- with different climates, different population densities, different demographics, different social distancing rules, etc. But when you average it all out, the low-vax states are weighing us down.) And that doesn't even address the other reason why unvaxed people are putting the rest of society at (higher) risk: they are taking up precious space at hospitals. Not only are they blocking others from getting life-saving surgery, but they are increasing the tax burden on the rest of society.
  17. Because the unvaxed are putting others at higher risk. (And before anyone tries to play the Whatabout Card: I am fully aware of the science indicating that vaccinated people are capable of spreading disease. But guess what? Science also indicates that vaccinated people are more likely to wear a mask, more likely to follow social distancing guidelines, less likely to get COVID, less likely to cough all over people if they have it, and much less likely to take up a precious hospital bed. So, get that YouTube video garbage psuedoscience outta here.)
  18. Also, "exemption certificate" is the new "Emotional Support Animal".
  19. Really? Dudes got a health condition and doesnt want to get a vax that normally takes years to get approval but was pushed through in a few months, so he loses his livelihood? seems dumb It also seems dumb for the government to force companies to allow anti-vaxxers to spread disease on their private property.
  20. I know two people who got vaxed shortly after having COVID (one was 2 weeks after recovery, the other was literally same day that his quarantine ended). Neither had side effects.
  21. Every college marching band plays "All Right Now", but none of them ever play anything beyond the riff and the chorus. My greatest accomplishment in high school was transcribing the middle section of the song for our pep band, turning this part into a drum/trumpet workout followed by a funky bassline for the tubas and trombones. It kicked ### and got everyone in the stands on their feet.
  22. This is a fair point. But also......there are a lot of people out there who are taking the horse version of the medicine. So.....
  23. Funny how times change. Payne herself thought it made the narrator sound "frigid", and she hated that was projected onto her. Apparently, "Band Of Gold" originally contained lyrics which implied that the girl had rejected the man on their wedding night....but those lyrics were cut in order to get the song under 3 minutes. FUN FACT: the lead guitar part was played by Ray Parker Jr.
