    Just as CincySportsFan has mentioned, the tailgating tradition has people blasted even before entering the stadium, and the nature of football being a more vicious type contact sport I believe gets people riled up more so as well. Many (not all) football fans are drunk meat headed has beens who might've played at some level themselves who still salivate at the idea of being out on the field themselves and taking someone down. The nature...

    I wouldn't say that I'm terribly too far from his line of thinking, though to present his point he also needs to be careful with broad brushing in a way that he is speaking out against. There are still very many liberals who hold to traditional progressive concepts, and though some have lost sight of the true meaning of that, they don't represent everyone. Because my viewpoints are not far right like some here, I've too often been...

    The Dollar General on Madison Ave in Covington that shut down over 5 years ago held the wonderful distinction of being their top location in the whole country that suffered the most from shoplifting. They were losing money and had to fold. The nearby Family Dollar on Madison is a filthy dump and no doubt has their share of shoplifting. It's a wonder that they have survived this long. The place is poorly managed and the staff just doesn't...

    I think that you're probably right. Recently I ducked into the Florence Mall on a rainy day for the first time in years while waiting for prescription glasses at a nearby Eyemart Express, and aside from a few senior mall walkers the place was pretty deserted. The food court was really the only area that seemed to attract anyone. Thankfully the place looked clean, and while malls are certainly handy to have multiple stores under one roof,...

    Really liking this Novo Ador song "Carry You" as well. They obviously have a niche sound similar to Bon Iver. So far not hearing too much difference from one song to the next, but I do very much dig the mellow relaxed emotional approach. This is also bringing to mind Canadian Patrick Watson a little bit as well.

    Been hearing this tune lately on a Taltz commercial, a medicine for psoriasis, and finally was able to figure out who it was. At first I thought that it might be Bon Iver. No doubt very similar however it's Novo Ador, a Welsh group doing the song "Anchor" Sometimes when my introduction to a song is from a commercial it can sorta ruin it for me because it's hard to get the commercial out of my head, yet not in this case...really like this...

    One thing in particular that I like about Kunkel's game other than his high IQ is his finesseful fearless ability to get to the rim. If he can build muscle that'll certainly be a plus at the next level, and thankfully with his body type he's not likely to bulk up too much because IMO a huge benefit of his lankiness is that it allows him to slither and slide into position and get away with it without too often drawing the charge.

    Agreed....Campanello's is very good, yet the rudeness is a big turn off. My particular issue has been with the older woman cashier who works there who appears to by bi-polar or something. You get the impression that you're bothering her just by having her take your order. Ask for a fork because there's none on your table and her eyeballs bulge out of her head while she breathes hard at you like you're being unreasonable. She can really make the...

    This ^ This ^ & This ^ Don't believe the hype about Pompillio's. They used to be good, but they now suck. It's now very greasy pedestrian Italian. Many have been duped by their very decent past and the whole "Rain Man" allure. There has been a very definite change for the worse for more than 10 years now. Many people still say that it's good because they want so bad to believe that it is, but make no mistake, it really really isn't.

    I don't know where to ask this question, and I don't want to devote a whole thread to it, but what's up with the new trend in the media when showing a photo, or a viral video for it to be clearly centered, but bordered by a fuzzy blurry version of the very same photo or video? For example:

    Somewhere about 15-20 years ago the trendy use of the word "awesome" came into play and 99% of time was overused and downright misused, as it often became a casual response to commonplace things whereas by definition it should be applied to something that is truly amazing. If that wasn't bad enough, all these years later it has stuck, and is still very much overused and misused. its meaning was and still is watered down to the point that it...

    I often hear people refer to playing golf as "hitting the links". I've never quite known the origins of that phrase, and could never bring myself to say it as it would feel pretentious, and especially since I don't even know what it means. A bit of research tells me this: Why exactly are golf courses known as "links"? Listen to the hackers at your local pro shop, and you're likely to think the term applies to any golf course. Not so,...

    Obviously there's no finding any rational reasoning behind this nut's horrid actions, but in his phone call to a friend he claimed to have killed about 13 others. So far it doesn't appear that he really did. So why say so? I suppose in some kooky way he was looking for more attention or to sensationalize this even more than how awful it already is. Also, they said they pinged his phone in Pennsylvania, but from what I'm understanding they...

    Love that tune. The lead off track on Trace "Windfall" is another gem and the part where he says: Switching it over to AM

 Can't recall the call letters

    Another stupid regret: About 10 years ago Rolling Stone offered a lifetime subscription for $100. A friend of mine took them up on it and is now covered for life. I let the offer slip by and though it's not terribly expensive to begin with, I regret not going with it.

    I've been subscribing for nearly 35 years. In my late 20's I made the rash decision to give my then nearly 10 year collection to a friend who sounded excited about taking them when I was moving and decided not to take them with me. The first thing he did was to cut off all of the covers and toss all the magazines in the garbage, and then decided that he didn't care about the covers either, so a few days later he tossed them away as well....

    "The Greatest Show On Earth Circus" in the early 70's when I was about 7. One Xavier game sometime in the 90's, but I don't recall who they played, or what prompted me to go - perhaps a free ticket. Concerts: -Judas Priest/ Uriah Heep - 1982 -Iron Maiden/ Quiet Riot/ Twisted Sister - 1983

    Though I can sometimes accept it as a necessary evil, no matter the atrocities of whoever we might have to bomb, the pacifist in me will never "glorify" it. Been this way with me ever since I was a kid watching my friends play with army men and building forts all for the sake of dropping something on them to blow them to smithereens. They also had a fascination with toy machine guns and war games that I just could never find the joy in. ...

    I have worn them when outside in the daylight for the last 28 years without fail. Previous to that I didn't make much of a conscious effort to do so. When I was 25 I was weed-wacking and hit a clump of dirt that flew into my eyes and got trapped underneath both of my contact lenses and abraised both of my corneas, and infected both of my eyes, which caused terrible painful burning requiring patches over both eyes for a few days with...

    Food for thought: Since 1963 there has been only one Final Four that did not include at least one of these 7 teams: North Carolina - 18 (20 total) UCLA - 17 (18 total) Duke - 16 (16 total) Kentucky - 12 (17 total) Kansas - 10 (14 total)
