Embrace the nothingness with these fine fixtures:

Pinstripe Bowl – Pitt vs. Northwestern (2:00, ESPN)

The Mildcats are going to honor alum Craig Sager with a helmet patch instead of a FOR REALS colour rush, which is beyond disappoint. Pitt will run a lot, and score and allow many scores, if their ACC record is any indication.

Walt Disney Was An Anti-Semitic Fuckwit Bowl – West Virginia vs. Miami (5:30, ESPN)

Old school Big East rivalry time!! All season, I could never figure out if the cousinfuckers were any good, but I am certain that Da U is Da Middling. Anyway, interesting for nostalgia, and to see Dana Holgerson’s ridiculous hair.

What Happened to Our Almonds, Did the Wind Blow Them Away?? Bowl – Indiana vs. Utah (8:30, Fox)

This is a very interesting matchup to me, as Indiana is usually a high-scoring side, whereas Utah likes to defend, but has shown the ability to play shootout ball when need be this season. I have a hunch this one will be wild and entertaining, and hopefully Gus Johnson will commentate.

Texas Bowl – Texas A&M vs. Kansas State (9:00, ESPN)

DEFEND UR STATE, Aggies!!! The undead are coming, and Bill Snyder shall lead them ,, smgdh. Because Texas is all kinds of cray-cray, TAMU Coach Kevin Sumlin is under some heat, and I hope he wins this one to make sure he survives until NC State is finally ready to fire their underperformer.

I feel like the only person in the world who’s mildly upset that I can get countless bowl games on my sports package except the one featuring aschool that is actually in the same state as my cable provider.

Seriously, wtf. Even if iu is going to get killed I wanna see it.

Two Wednesday night open threads? This is still more coordinated than the Broncos offensive line.

How long does one need to stay at a “cookie exchange party” to be polite but not so long that you want to murder everyone?

I’d cook you cookies and invite you over, give you your own TV, then only bug you when I want I shot of what you are drinking, but I am a traditionalist. So I have no idea

You know…being ranked 23rd in the nation is sort of like being the lady that comes home after the bar and sleeps with me.

I mean…yeah you accomplished something…but I wouldn’t go around boasting about it with pride.

Anyone use Amazon to buy stuff? If so are third parties trustworthy to buy from?

LemonJello
LemonJello

Never had any issues when I’ve used Amazon. I believe they (Amazon itself) are on the hook to you if one of their vendors/third party “partners” doesn’t deliver.

rockingdog

Amazon used is good. 99% of the 3rd parties are very good.
goes back to the old saying “You get what you pay for.”

I want the Madden Xbox One S with Madden, they only have a third party, they might have it again tomorrow, not really worried about the price which is 5 bucks more for not Amazon direct.

What a shock…Mike Golic hates officials making calls to encourage coaches and players to stop targeting hits.

Marc Trestmans Windowless Van
Marc Trestmans Windowless Van

The QB did spear the defender on that play though. Top of the helmet into the facemask of the guy sacking him

JustStopDude

I’m fine with the non-call there. I cannot stand Golic’s rant he went on.

Unless there is a potential cost for questionable hits, players and coaches will not change their behavior.

So the last time I went to a Northwestern game I met a great girl. Tiny Asian girl that went to the game in yoga pants and had beers strapped down her legs and hid elsewhere on her body

Oh shit. I meant to turn on the Northwestern game when it started. I half care about them since my dad is an alumnus.

What is that, Coors Light?

No, it’s Red Bull. So it has a ton of chemicals in it that will eventually ruin your body and kill you, unlike Coors Light which is just water

Upon further review, I believe it’s Keystone Light – it is West Virginia, after all.

Sitting at work for no goddamn reason. The entire campus is vacant but we have to be here. I’ll be here for another 6+ hours also. Tomorrow will be the same. At least on Friday I can shut down at four.

I chose not to take any vacation between the holidays (OrangeJello graduates this summer from high school, so there are college visits on the horizon, and I have to move House LemonJello from the OBX to NoVA as well). 90% of the staff is out of the office, so I have plenty of time to wander the interwebs with no interruptions.

Outer Banks of North Carolina. Calling it the OBX is one of the many reasons I look forward to leaving it.

Can’t I get it on Qello?

Do the rest of you get hammered with Qello commercials on your local sportstalk station?

“I was at the Bowie concert last night, front row!”
“No way! How? You were just center stage for Foo Fighters at the Coliseum?”
“It’s easy. Just say, hello qello. That’s q-e-l-l-o!”
