Sports Forum / Danny Manning is Still at Wake Forest
« on: Yesterday at 08:23:04 PM »
???

Many on here may not care but it is interesting that Manning will return because the
Quote
with Coach Danny Manning at the helm is “bright with him at the helm.” said AD Ron Wellman

Danny Manning has a 24-66 record in the ACC over 5 years.

I hate this crap. Always have. I know the rationale for it way back when, but this is now.

Keep Eastern Standard Time permanent.

Your thoughts?

Why on earth would the GOP not vote for this bill? Certainly they could debate what changes they want.  Their president ran on 'draining the swamp'. Some of this provisions will do just that.  But the House voted along party lines with the GOP voting against and the Senate will note vote because Mitch is a BITCH.  :no:

Sports Forum / Nike Shoe Explodes During UNC v Duke
« on: February 20, 2019, 09:39:13 PM »
I guess Coach K is going to be cussin' out Nike after Zion Williamson's shoe literally came apart during the game and possibly injured the star player.

He hasn't played since hobbling off the court.

Coach probably wishing he'd stayed with Adidas now  :lol:

UPDATE: Williamson will not return, knee injury.

The Soul Train/Don Cornelius story (my interpretation)

whose watching?  Very entertaining.

BET is putting out some good stuff lately.

Mary Jane will be back in April and they advertised two other shows which look promising.

Comeback King Katt Williams is on a roll—and he has a new role.

https://thegrapevine.theroot.com/katt-williams-will-bring-his-freshly-permed-follicles-t-1831101869

“It’s Katt’s big chance, maybe his last chance at a real comeback!” a source told In Touch. Though the comedian has been previously plagued with drug and crime issues, the source also added that Williams is “sober, he’s on his best behavior and the cast loves him.”

Just recently, Williams was arrested for allegedly assaulting a driver in Portland, Oregon, so landing a gig on a mainstream network show is no small feat for the petite performer.

Williams will be portraying the estranged father of Kyra (Quvenzhané Wallis), a young cousin of Dre’s who spends time with the Johnsons when her mom isn’t fully equipped to take care of her.

“It’s definitely a comeback for Katt. This is a big deal,” the source continued. “He was on Atlanta, but this is a mainstream, family-friendly, network series. If Katt f–ks this up, he’s never getting another shot. Everyone is rooting for him, especially stars Tracee Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson.”

Williams made a splash as the infamous Alligator Man in Atlanta: Robbin’ Season, a performance that ultimately secured him the Emmy bag. The 47-year-old actor won the 2018 statuette for Guest Actor - Comedy Series.

A Katt Williams appearance on Black-ish will be dope. Imagine the banter between his character and Ruby (Jenifer Lewis). Shading Bow’s white side by calling her a “BOGO white” or something. Or clowning Dre’s shoe collection because he doesn’t have any Stacy Adams. He’ll definitely have something to say about the specialness that is Junior (Marcus Scribner) and Jack (Miles Brown). It’s a toss-up between whether he and Diane (Marsai Martin) will play the dozens or become best friends because they’re the same person. Either is possible.

Let me get my snacks ready...

 :clap: :clap:

I can't wait, this should be good.

Politics / Onnidan Republicans Use This Formula To Determine Your Status
« on: February 07, 2019, 09:41:29 AM »
https://www.theroot.com/white-tax-tears-trump-voters-are-now-realizing-theyve-1832359811

After reading this, I read the comments and found these two.

1.  How To Vote Your Interest:

Total all of your loans and credit cards balances. This is X.

Now total your bank balances, retirement accounts, and how much equity you have in your home. This is Y.

If X is greater than Y, vote Democrat. If Y is greater than X by less than 1 million, vote Democrat. If Y is greater than X by more than 1 million, vote Republican.

That’s it. It’s not hard.

The odds are pretty good that any given American is not only not rich, but probably poor or close to it. There's no valid financial reason for the vast majority of Republican voters to vote Republican.


2.  Anyone who can’t do this math: votes Republican...but shouldn’t.

We KNOW both y04185 and oldsport have learning disabilities.

just watched this on ESPN 30-30, where he played NFL and MLB in the same day. Err, scratched that, he didn't play for the Braves that evening because of some childish crap on the Braves management part.

Now I have a legit reason for hatin' dem mofo Braves.  :lmao:  Go METS!
 
In all seriousness Prime Time is funny as hell.

General Discussion Forum / Just Say No To Foreign Language Tattoos
« on: January 30, 2019, 12:55:00 PM »
For the record I don't understand getting a tattoo period. And I REALLY don't understand getting Japanese symbols tattooed on your body. Just because the tattoo artist might fvck it up and leave you with God know what being said on your body.

Ariana Grande's misspelled tattoo translates to something hilarious

That’s a Grande error.

Pop star Ariana Grande got a new tattoo with the intention of commemorating her latest hit song “7 Rings” — but due to a misspelling, the ink ended up paying homage to a small type of Japanese barbecue grill instead.

The singer’s tattoo is made up of Japanese symbols on her left palm that read “shichirin,” which is the name of a popular portable stove.  :crazy:

Grande, 25, initially shared an image of the fresh hand art to social media but has since deleted the photo. A slew of fans, however, still pointed out the misspelling.

"Indeed, I left out "つの指" which should have gone in between," Grande wrote in a tweet that has since been deleted. "It hurt like f**k n still looks tight. I wouldn't have lasted one more symbol lmao. But this spot also peels a ton and won't last so if I miss it enough I'll suffer thru the whole thing next time."

The “Dangerous Woman” artist also noted that she’s a “huge fan of tiny bbq grills."

Grande released “7 Rings” earlier this month, and the song climbed to the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week.

She’s not the first celebrity to have a typo in a tattoo. Emma Watson wore a temporary tattoo reading “Times Up” — which is missing an apostrophe — to the Oscars last year.   :tongue2:

"Fake tattoo proofreading position available," Watson joked in a tweet afterward. "Experience with apostrophes a must."

And, ironically, Hayden Panettiere got a tattoo in Italian meant to read “live without regret” that was misspelled.  :tongue2:  :read:

I went to your ticket office to get a reserved seat for when we play in March. The person helping me said that was now student seating?

I was a little stunned, but asked him to repeat and then asked for one seat on the back row if it was available.  That is what I ended up with.

When did you change your money making seats to student seating.  I should have asked for a seat on the opposite side, but not going to get into an argument with he guy on how you run your facilities.

So, what's up?

Politics / GOP Wants Muslim Out of Party...typical
« on: January 10, 2019, 05:39:07 PM »
First, why this Muslim feels the GOP is the right fit for himself is a separate question but them crackers don't want him and want to use the U.S. Constitution to oust him.

https://qz.com/1519575/will-a-texas-county-gops-effort-to-oust-a-muslim-official-backfire/

Why ousting a Muslim party official would probably backfire on the Texas GOP

Tarrant County, home to two million residents in the sprawling Dallas-Fort Worth metro area, is the last urban enclave in Texas still in GOP hands—just barely. Republicans’ shrinking lead has local party officials quarreling over how to avoid losing it altogether.

Opposing factions will face off tonight (Jan. 10) during a vote to decide whether there’s room in Tarrant’s GOP leadership ranks for a Muslim medical doctor.
