My 600 lb life is an incredible program, you monster.

In fairness there aren't any more b&w Hitler reels to show, and Bible mysteries only go so far.

But yeah, reality TV rules dude.

I particularly love these new reality investigation series, like Search for Lost Giants and Curse of Oak Island. Crazy folk are great TV.

It may have been cool 150 years ago in Wyoming. Now it's just another douchy last name co-opted as a first name for no good reason.

Guys, I get it; I wish my parents had been that cool, too. Stop overcompensating because you have boring names.

That kid deserves the social media firestorm he's getting, but I can't believe anyone thinks he's the reason they were chanting. He's 19. Unless it's the first time they've ever chanted that song, it's the seniors (and likely alumni before them) that were "leading" it and should be right there in the front lines with him.

It isn't just the seniors and alums. It's in the ritual of every fraternity founded in the south.

yeah, that's probably true. I was thinking more of this specific situation at OU. I don't know if the president wants to appear tough on racism or is just really pissed or whatever. But there are a lot of people at OU even more culpable than this kid. I don't know if he plans to expel all of them or what, but if these 2 get kicked out and then he turns the page, nothing's going to improve.

Well, Fox News keeps trying to bring up the case of redshirt OU RB Joe Mixon, but... Fox News.

Secondly, David Boren is probably one of the most progressive public figures in Oklahoma. I know he won't stand at all for this, but in 2004 the Sigma Chi house was kicked off "permanently" for forcing a bottle of 100-proof liquor down a pledge's throat. The pledge didn't survive, but the house came back after 2 years. I expect the same situaition, seeing how that house really only recruited sons of rich oil execs from Dallas and Houston.

DePaul ends yet another basketball season with a long losing streak. [expletive] the entire administration. I hope a [expletive] meteor hits the president, board, and, especially, AD offices tomorrow. How can you be so [expletive] incompetent and not at all concerned over the fact that your only revenue generating athletic program is a [expletive] laughingstock while, at the same time, spending $75MM on a new arena? For a bunch of pretty good business people, you are pretty [expletive] stupid. [expletive] you, [expletive] you right in the ass.

And I hope Oliver Purnell drops dead tomorrow so his DePaul-financed retirement can never be enjoyed. Thanks for absolutely mailing it in the past 5 years, you piece of garbage.

I have recently picked chess back up after 25+ yrs of not playing. I just play on my smartphone with a chess.com app. I have noticed this annoying habit a lot of players have of not resigning. I can understand maybe when your hoping for one mistake and you can get back in the game. But they won't even resign when being down several major pieces. And then 10 mins later when you finally checkmark them, they ask for a rematch. I know lame old nerd rant, but it's bothersome
