At this point in the bowl game cycle, it seems like we might finally get games where there are more than just the relatives of players in the stands. Because it’s been pretty empty at the New Orleans Bowl,

the Bahamas Bowl,

and the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl.

We’re not quite at the sets that people recognize, but the majority of these games have title sponsors we’ve actually heard of.

Prediction: Joe Davis is a consummate pro; Brady Quinn QB’d the Browns for three years and lost Denver’s starting job to Tim Tebow. Expect lots of dead air when Davis throws to Quinn, so it’ll be reminiscent of his Browns highlights.

I just started re-watching Rome. Atia is hot as fuck. I don’t remember her being naked.

She does so frequently. So does Cleopatra. Antony was a lucky SOB.

Cleopatra is textbook crazy-hot in this series. Anyway, I totally forgot Atia got naked. Shame, too, because she’s impressively firm and I think I’d have remembered.

You realize they didn’t bathe much back then….right?

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh
Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

The rich did. Romans had public baths for …. not slaves. Rich Egyptians did too. Plus it was what you are used to; in the US we are afraid of any smell that doesn’t match chemical-like or Clorox. There, fixed it.

Announcer: I’m not gonna rip these kids for sitting out…

YOU’RE RIPPING THEM RIGHT NOW ASSHOLE!!!!

I’m not saying I disagree. Rip ’em. But have the balls to do it and not be a passive aggressive pussy this way.

WCS

I understand both sides. WVU’s leading rusher, Justin Crawford, sat out yesterday. He did this to prevent injury, but, also knowing 3/5s of the starting o-line weren’t playing due to injury and/or suspension, and QB Will Grier wasn’t playing due to his foot exploding before Thanksgiving.

Having Crawford might have helped, but, it would have been a Pyrrhic victory at best.

My intent wasn’t to judge the kids, fwiw. In their shoes, my personal choice would be to play if I was able, but I get the factors which for some dictate otherwise. That’s their choice and it’s not mine to judge. Which is my point.

My point was this dicknose announcer saying he wasn’t going to judge them, then in the next sentence judging them.

Fuck that guy.
