i honestly doubt it would be disappointing

this isn't one of those "maybe the memory is better than the reality" situations. if anything, seeing these posts again exceeds the legend of da bum for me.

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

Go to Board Preferences and change the board style to prosilver and it will work. I used to have the same problem.

Am I the only one who instinctively looks to see how many hearts some of these posts got, only to be disappointed by the lack of the "heart" feature?

Also, think of how many more of these amazing threads we would have had over the years had the Mod-Nazis not taken away this national treasure of a human being


i've caught myself doing that a few times


That and I catch myself wanting to respond to a post to pile on and then realize I am looking through a 7 year old thread in a locked forum.

I think he was a bellhop. But he was just biding his time until joining the Peace Corps or becoming assistant AD at some school his mom worked at in South Carolina. But the heart just couldn't say no to an opportunity like Williston, ND.

i love how he "disagrees" on the right answers to the reading comp part and is basically like "just want to see if all of you agree that they're wrong or just some of you"
