I listened to that cuck Gourlay (and Jamie) and watched episode one of Black Mirror just now.
I thought the acting was very good.
I liked that it’s basically here’s what would probably happen if this ridiculous real-life scenario actually occurred, and could see endless opportunities for episodes based on that idea.
Initially I thought “just bang the pig, it wouldn’t be that bad“, but when he walked in and they got down to business, it sort of hit me how awful it would be. You would remember that for the rest of your life. 100% scarring.
The message of the Princess being released BEFORE he banged the pig, but no one knew because they were all watching, seemed a bit under sold in the actual episode. That wasn’t what stuck with me once it was done at all.
I plan on watching more. Only 6 years late. Thanks blog!
Give it a rest. This narrative that Philly fans are the scum of the earth is so old and tired. Snowballs at Santa Claus was 50 fucking years ago yet every media outlet brings it up on an annual basis.
Vikings Fans complained after last weekend’s game about how poorly they were treated.
Are Philly fans a bit more arrogant and full of themselves? Probably.
Are there some bad apples in Philly? Of course.
Are there more bad apples in Philly than your average sports city? Maybe (show me the data please).
But you’re kidding yourself if you think these stories are exclusive to Philly. The stereotype of Philly fans makes the media want to report these more than other cities (guessing, but I do believe that).
With all of that said – I hate ALL sports fans who throw beer cans, verbally or physically attack opposing teams / fans, or anything of that sort; Philly included. Celebrate your wins, celebrate home field, but don’t be an asshole.
Brady and Belichick are cheaters!
With the Super Bowl rematch looming, some Philly fans are quick to point out that the Eagles were “cheated” out of their last Super Bowl against the Patriots. Similar to the above, this is old and tired.
If Spygate made such a difference then explain how Brady / Belichick have made 7 straight AFC championships and 4 more Super Bowls a decade later.
If Brady had such an advantage throwing deflated balls, then explain how he managed to go 28 TDs to 2 INTs the following year in just 12 games, and 32 TDs and 8 INTs this year (while also likely winnings the MVP).
How much more does Brady have to do to prove he’s the GOAT and that cheating has nothing to do with it?
They’ve been DOMINANT for almost 20 years. Do you know how much the league has changed during that time? These two adapt to new players, new systems, and new rules, better than any other team in the league.
Yes I believe that they push the envelop, but you’re delusional if you think the 31 other teams in the league aren’t doing similar things, and that their 5 Super Bowls and .779 win % are because they’re cheating.
I’ve been moved to tears (or close to it) four times in the past couple of weeks and I don’t know why.
Kathrine Switzer’s SC Feature
Switzer was the first woman to run the Boston Marathon. She wasn’t supposed to but she said DGAF and did anyway. Out of it came one of the most iconic sports / women’s rights photos. I literally cried for like the last 3 minutes of this feature.
I rewatch the last mile of this race every month or so. Every single time I almost cry when he crosses the finish line. The race, the call, the time, it’s all perfect. Favorite race of all time. Start watching at about 24:45 if you’re interested.
Yes the Mark Wahlberg movie.
This is about the Boston Marathon bombings (apparently the Boston Marathon is my weak spot) and at the end they show the real people; the police, the terrorists, the victims, etc. and I cried.
Nick Symmonds hugging his mom after winning the 800m ’08 Olympic Trials
Wheating retired a few days ago so this video has been popping up a lot. After winning, Symmonds starts jogging down the home stretch and gives his mom a big hug. It happens at 4:40. This was a tear-jerker somehow.
So what’s going on? Is this just what happens when you get older?
