Personal open letter to Tyreek:

You got your bag, and good for you, but if it’s down to 13 seconds in a playoff game, who do you want throwing the ball, Tua or..?

Something for y’all to consider, considering I never could conform enough to get through the assembly-line meat grinder to be certified as well-educated.

How did “awesome” go from an adjective to a noun? Two reasons, the first being that the adjective’s still used today, though in a diminished fashion, as in “the Grand Canyon’s an awesome sight”, because it certainly a sight that inspires awe. The villain in this reel is the word awful, through no fault of its own (Save perhaps displacing awe-full to be replaced by awesome) provided a verbally symmetric opposite.

It even retained its original meaning, in the sense that things can be so wonderful as to inspire awe, which is probably the final nail in the coffin, burying the original meaning in other applications as an antonym of awful. Alliteration fans, you’re welcome. (similar story, but “well come” as a greeting just got elided, go fig)

I, for one, had no clue that “awesome” ever was (or is?) a noun

then too, I’m like “out of the loop” but then, I’m an OLD guy

I have an altar boy (Lutheran) story regarding Good Friday that might interest you. Yes, it involves me as the instigator, but it’s really about the result. Really impactful service, you could feel it. You know my email, and remember that I have no lasting beef with you.

Best to you and yours, regardless.

screw the politics. I saw where the Bills decided to charge $15,000 to 50,000 per year for personal seat licenses for season ticket holders… after the citizens decided to build them new digs.

If the fans are dumb enough to pay that much for reserving a seat, I can see why they’d be dumb enough to believe their QB is the best.

I know it’s late to the party. I was helping to pack my MIL as she is moving. This PSL is not too uncommon now. A quick Google search says 20 of the 32 teams have them. It’s a license to have rights to purchase season tickets. And if you have a license you have to purchase the season tickets. That’s why I am fine with old Arrowhead. Teat it down and build new. Then I’d wager there would be a PSL here too.

The song was chosen by Armed Forces Radio to be the first song broadcast on the service covering the area during Operation Desert Storm. In one of the campfire scenes late in the 2007 documentary Joe Strummer: The Future Is Unwritten, a friend states that Strummer wept when he heard that the phrase “Rock the Casbah” was written on an American bomb that was to be detonated on Iraq during the 1991 Gulf War.

whooooooooooooooooooooooooooa

UConn showed Illinois and the rest of the country just how dominant it can be in an incredible eight-minute stretch on Saturday.

The No. 1 overall seed scored 30 consecutive points from the final two minutes of the first half to the 13:16 mark of the second half in its dominating win over the Illini to advance to the Final Four. The final score ended up being 77-52, but that was trivial after Connecticut delivered a proverbial TKO to Illinois and a warning shot to the rest of college basketball before and after halftime.

Bills fans are cool, they’re tough and mostly kind-hearted (Bills Mafia) so they WILL get used to it in time, and they’ll ALMOST come to cherish it many years down the road (“OMG we were SOOOOOOOO close!”)

just as we remember (almost) fondly the Good Old Days with AS11, and the 45-44 thing in Indy

Saw a Buffalo Bills fan post about how Josh Allen was the GOAT, over guys like Lamar, Joe Burrow, Mahomes, even Brady.

The delusion is real.

upamtn
Reply to  kcfreak725
03/30/2024 6:47 pm

 Josh Allen was the GOAT

well, he lied …

mind you he’s biased (aren’t we all?) and maybe maybe MAYYYYYBE if you stretch it out to consider the Bills defense isn’t all that, and shit happens (Damar Hamlin, OC Change, Wide Right, etc)

you can sorta kinda almost make a case for him being The “Most Overall Athletic” QB in the game today, and maybe MAYBE almost (if you ignore Jim Kelly, who DID have a great defense AND offense as well [everything but a kicker?]) he might MAYBE almost be considered the Franchise GOAT (as least for this decade)

more athletic than Burrow, better QB than Lamar, might give him that … tough SOB

but GOAT GOAT?

no, just no …
