    My 3 kids don’t act like that either. And for the most part the 100 or so kids I coach in 3 different sports don’t act that way either. The sentiment that today’s youth are all soft, poorly behaved/entitled is a super broad stroke that simply isn’t true.

    Not only that, no way would I want to go back and live in the good old days with the tougher generations. It's so funny to hear people talk so badly about the generation they've raised.

    Surprised but not surprised. I manage digital marketing campaigns for dealerships across the country, and dealers basically can’t give away Fusions or Tauruses, and the margins are super thin (sometimes losing money)on Focus and Fiesta. And search volume online is way lower than trucks and SUV’s, so much much so, they often invest little to no money on those models. Still, it’s hard to believe they wouldn’t keep at least one midsize, sedan in...

    I guess I really donít. I just donít understand why people feel this is so horrible, hilarious or a sign of impending doom for our society and why the current younger generation is hopeless. I kind of find it funny that this is the reaction some people have toward something that really shouldnít mean much one way or the other.

    Ok. Crying doesn’t work for you. Doesn’t work for me either. But who’s to say it doesn’t work for some??

    Reading the article, it doesnít look like anyone on campus asked for a cry closet. A fine arts student thought it might be a good idea and got it all set up. No involvement from the school other than providing the space. Doesnít say how many have used it, and if it does get used, it will probably only be used by a handful, and at least a few will only step into as a joke. Itís strictly my opinion, but in reading other articles about the...

    I have to say, that while I do have some stress at work at times (I'm in sales), some of my finals in college were way more stressful, especially Calculus. Again though, nobody is saying they installed this room because they can't get through or can't handle exams. It's a way to blow off some stress in private. It's surely a lot better than heading down to the local watering hole and knocking back a half dozen beers after a tough day, like...

    Because not everyone enjoys those things. Everyone has their own way of dealing with things. Again, as long as you aren’t hurting yourself or others, there is no right or wrong way to cope. Crying for a few minutes is not a sign of weakness. My wife cries all the time, and she’s one of the toughest, most resilient people I know.

    Toughness is overrated. I’d say resilience, intelligence and resolve are more important than being tough. It’s obvious that life on a whole has gotten easier over the years. People generally don’t have to work as hard, and living and working conditions have improved dramatically. Being able to cope when things go wrong is a totally different skill. And it’s been proven that bottling those emotions up do more harm than good. There’s nothing...

    My parents said the exact same thing. Each generation seems to believe that the next is softer, not as smart as or not as good as they were. And yet every day new things are created or discovered that solve problems, make things safer or make life better/easier.

    You're labeling a whole generation on a few knuckleheads. The .01% of the population eating Tide Pods and snorting condoms isn't representative of the entire group. Just like previous generations who gave each other eraser burns, swallowed live gold fish, snorted pixie sticks or wrapped rubber bands around their fingers until they turned purple, there are always a few kids who do stupid things. And guess what.....there are more than a few...

    Looking at the pictures, and reading other articles, this looks like more of a tongue in cheek, fine arts project rather than a real “solution” for stressed out students. And even if it was, I’m not sure why this would be so upsetting to some. It’s better than doing shots until you puke. Is it really horrible to let out a scream or two to blow off some stress? And providing a private place to do it is controversial? Tough crowd.

    Soft taco. Otherwise you may as well just eat nachos. And you can’t eat hard tacos while driving unless you don’t care about wearing your food. For what it’s worth, the original taco was soft. Hard tacos are an American invention. At least according to Ortega. The History of the Taco | Ortega

    Maybe casinos brought an unsavory element to an area back n the says when the mob was running them. But if you take a stroll through any casino (or at least the couple dozen Iíve been in all over the country), while you might see a few characters, I doubt youíll see many people Iíd out and out describe as ďunsavoryĒ.

    I canít imagine how long this game took to play. Blowouts suck for both teams. If Iím up, I empty the bench, donít take extra bases on passes balls, put kids on the mound that havenít pitched much, mix up positions, etc. I do not tell my team to look at pitches, strike out on purpose, walk off the base etc. I call off the dogs, but keep playing the game. If Iím on the losing team, Iím pushing my kids to keep playing hard, but at some...

    I will agree the best NAIA schools can compete with and perhaps are even better than the top D2 schools. However, I don't think NAIA as a whole is as deep as D2 from top to bottom. NAIA does have some recruiting advantages though, and can pull some kids that won't be able to play right away in an NCAA program. But there are very few NAIA or D2 guys playing in the NBA...by large, if you're not playing D1, the NBA is a pipe dream, and I don't...

    Yep. If I go to Canes, I'm want chicken fingers. If I go to Chick-fil-A, I want a chicken sandwich. I'm not getting a sandwich at Canes or fingers at CFA.

    Which puts him out sight. Out sight, out of mind. Wouldn't have nearly the same visibility or impact. Which means it really wouldn't be a protest.

    Looks like Fulcher quit yesterday due to "differences that couldn't be resolved". I know they were winless in their first two seasons. Wonder what exactly led him to quitting. David Fulcher out as head football coach at CCU - Cincinnati News, Weather, Sports from FOX19 NOW-WXIX

    They are winless since starting the program 2 years ago. Looks like it was announced yesterday that David Fulcher is no longer the Head Coach.

    Hitting over .400 in the 5 games he's played in. Already equaled last years RBI total in 114 less plate appearances. It's good to see him having success at that plate.

    It to mention it would seem like it would be way to difficult for another person to somehow get him into the van, get in the van with him and then somehow both of them get into a position in order to make this happen. Foul play makes an already crazy story, even crazier.

    I assume it could be any Catholic school in Campbell County. Public school kids (which the only one is Campbell County Middle School), would not be able to play for either NCC or Brossart. I believe that's how it was set up when NCC was in the league previously with Brossart.

    New Cath will be playing in the NKMSAA and should be drawing kids from any parish school that feeds to NCC. Brossart does have a team in the NKMSAA.

    Finally made it to Knockback Nat's last night, as the wife was in the mood for wings. The place was packed, but we got the food quickly. Nice, smokey, meaty wings. Reminded me I need to replace my smoker so I can get back to smoking stuff, especially wings.

    Again, chatter is fine. Cheering is fine. Stuff done strictly to distract, annoy, or bother the other team, is the problem. And for what it's worth, I hate that stuff in basketball games as well. Rowdy cheering is fine. The other junk is tasteless.

    I’m not a big fan of intentionally obnoxious chatter as is being described by the original poster. Especially if it is completely unrelated to the game, or if it becomes personal. That being said, doing your job...throwing strikes, making the plays on defense, hitting the baseball etc., tends to shut that stuff down pretty quickly.

    I watched it, and loved it. I was a big WWF fan in the 80’s, and Andre was always a mythical figure. The few times you’d see him on TV, it was a big deal. And his feud with Hulk was completely believable, and a great storyline. It was neat seeing the old stuff from his younger days. And I had no idea he had a daughter. I can’t imagine living a life where you simply cannot get away from being noticed.
