  1. Something We Can All Be Proud Of

    There are several recent articles in the NY Times, CNN, NPR, etc., about how the Chinese government is trying to rein in the bad behavior of Chinese tourists. Places like Hong Kong describe tourists defecating in the streets. Unbelievable.
  2. Something We Can All Be Proud Of

    The thing I really like about the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is that if people are being loud and disrespectful, the guard won't hesitate to tell them to knock it off. My wife and I visited the Vietnam Memorial back in December. There was a gaggle/mob of Chinese (?) tourists being very loud, laughing and taking selfies/pictures. The Vietnam vet who was standing by the memorial just shook his head in disgust--my wife was really pissed and 'loudly rebuked' them. They were oblivious.

    I've attended the wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb one time. I prefer to go when there are few or no people there. Just the guard and the view of the seemingly endless white tombstones.
  4. Something We Can All Be Proud Of

    I usually go to D.C. 2 or 3 times a year and always make a point to visit Arlington Cemetary. If you go to Arlington National Cemetary I strongly recommend that you spend some time at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. A very moving experience.
  5. Johnny is back in spring league

    While watching the Manziel trainwreck, I found it really easy to believe that I was looking at a spoiled rich kid who was never held accountable for his behavior. Because he was really good at sports. I find it easy to lump his sudden "I'm getting help and I'm bipolar" announcement with countless celebrities who fuk up and announce they're checking into rehab or people who find themselves in jail and announce they've found Jesus. Sorry, but the Manziel trainwreck showed me that J was really, really, really good at looking people in the eye with an earnest, sincere expression on his face, and telling them what they wanted to hear: "I've really changed this time; I'm going to act mature now. It's all going to be different." Watched that shite for two years. Hey, maybe he really has changed. I'll believe it when I see it. Thus concludes today's episode of 'Cynicism Today'.
  6. On Steeler boards they're consoling each other with "Hey, at least we're not Browns fans."
  7. Apathy Setting In

    What is this "win streak" you speak of, earth person?
  8. I'm fascinated by the psychological shitstorm of self-loathing and whatever the hell else is going on in the mind of someone "who consistently touts his faith and his anti-LGBT stances" but then gets caught giving it to some guy up the butt in his statehouse office. Oh, and did we mention that the poor schmuck is married while he publically holds forth on "natural marriage"? Wouldn't you love to be a fly on the wall for that conversation/confession with the ol' ball and chain?
  9. What a 6th Grader Thinks About The Browns

    I have a friend who has a 5 year-old son. He has outfitted the kid with a Browns jersey, blanket, the works. He has the Direct TV football package and they watch the games together every week. He told me that last season, after another embarrassing loss, Anthony looked at him and said, "Dad, why do we root for the Browns? They suck! Why aren't we Patriots fans?

  11. Josh Gordon

    Well, judging from the 14 pages of this thread, it makes a huge difference to many people on this board. I think it is worth pointing out that when he had his one big season the Browns won a grand total of 4 games. Personally, I don't think he will make much of a difference for the Browns on the field for the simple reason that we don't have a quarterback who can get him the ball. And no, I don't have any confidence that he's going to get through the offseason without fukking up.
  12. Josh Gordon

    Serious question. No snark, no assholery, just a simple, honest question. What, in Josh Gordon's history since his first days at Baylor, makes anyone here think that he will get through the coming offseason without some sort of "incident"?
  13. Surprise!!! Its a white guy???

  14. There is truth to the theory that many people got hurt at work/in the mines and were prescribed oxy, etc., and things got out of hand. But living in WV, I can vouch for Logics point. The majority of junkies and pill heads I see every day have never worked a day in their life, and have no interest whatsoever in becoming employed. No exaggeration, there are people who O.D. in the morning, first responders administer narcan, and that afternoon are responding to the same idiot with no job who has O.D.'d again.
  15. RIP to a Great Browns fan, and to Ghoolie.

    Very sorry for your loss.
