Are you fvcking kidding me bro!

I bet you're one of those tools that leaves a tip when you go out to eat too
I am weak. I need deliverance from this place of weakness. I call it Weakdom.

I bought an iPhone 5 two nights ago. Was just perusing your excellent case thread before I head off to Best Buy to showroom them a bit. After that, I'm gonna pick up my renewed CGC. But I'll give a tip the bro behind the counter at CGs-R-Us, I'll tell him to eat more fiber.

Nah. I enjoyed watching football when my son was playing a couple of years ago, but I've never been able to bring myself to sit down for three-plus hours for an NFL game.

Also: one of the things I hate about pro sports is the false tribalism they (very successfully) try to foist on the local populace. I've never understood why I'm supposed to care about an entertainment conglomerate in my city that's made up of a revolving door of itinerant professionals who come and go every season. And then the team, if it gets a little more money, will pull up stakes and abandon the city and its fans if it suits them. No thanks. Pro football is the Olive Garden of sports--that's why I was surprised to see that you were drinking the kool-aid.

I don't see how I'm not being true to myself if I'm just down for a good game.

Neither of these teams are from my hometown - jerseyian

It's one thing to watch the game with your sons or at home but to ignore it all together because its popular is a bit strange.

The nfl is an excellent product on tv; the game itself is pretty amazing. It's entertainment not an endorsement of big corporations though commercials could be nauseating.

You of all people know how i feel about Olive Garden!

Have a great weekend

Thanks! You have a great weekend too.

I'm not ignoring it because it's popular. I ignore it because it's boring to me. It's just the same crap over and over and over again. I admit that it's a great product, from a marketing standpoint. Its continuing success is a testament to that.

I agree with this wholeheartedly. I never understood the undying loyalty to a group of people that have nothing to do with your city. Now, if the teams could only scout from a certain geographical area (i.e. a certain radius of the city) that would be a different story.

Also, that's why, in baseball, I like the Yankees. They, at least, have no qualms about openly targeting the top players. I can support their model...because they have one.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

Football and baseball really aren't so different. Support both or neither, jmo.

I'm stuck in the middle of no where - filling in for one of our southern crews, working a scale station - writing down truck weights every 20-30 minutes... 6am-6:30... long ass boring day. why they are paying a draftsmen to do this job is beyond me.

thank jebus for hotspots and time and a half + OT.

Those kind of days are crucial if you're hourly, and hell if you're on salary. There were a few weekends where I worked 8-10 hour days all weekend and all I could think about was "I'm not getting paid any extra for this bullsh!t"

For those of you who did not watch it, it was a phenomenal game.

I did not watch one second of it. Didn't even know what channel it was on. I've been busy drinking wine and performing fundamental stock valuations all day.
