Good morning, homies. Here’s hoping you’ve all sufficiently recovered from “mid-major Monday”. Speaking of which…
- In a game that proved absolutely nothing, #6 Boise State beat #4 TCU 17-10 in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl last night. By pitting both “BCS busters” against each other, the powers that be effectively neutralized any argument that either team might have a claim to the National Championship. Would one-loss Florida have killed either one of these teams in the Sugar Bowl like they did Cincinnati? Probably, but we’ll never know for sure. Boise State fans have to feel like they’ve been ripped off yet again.
- In contrast, College of Charleston fans have to be on top of the world following last night’s upset victory over #9 UNC. Hosting their highest ranked opponent ever, the Cougars took advantage by out shooting and out hustling the Tarheels in overtime. These types of games are why you rarely see elite level teams playing mid-majors on the road. The risk versus reward ratio always plays into the under-dog’s favor. The Heels now have 4 OOC losses after playing a very difficult schedule. Will the Selection Committee reward them for challenging themselves early? It’ll be interesting to see where they end up.
- If you haven’t seen Don’tEvenReply.com, then you’re really missing out. The guy basically prank e-mails people in response to their ads with hilarious results. Here’s an excerpt:
From Joe ****** to Me:First you need to tell me what the chipper is being used for or you can find someone else.
From Me to Joe ******:
Okay, I’ll try to explain my situation. My cat just had a litter of kittens, and I can’t get rid of them. I tried giving them to my friends and putting ads online, but nobody wants them. I even tried releasing them into the wild but they keep coming back to my house. I can’t stand these little f@#$ers pissing everywhere and clawing up my furniture. So I figure my next option is to put them down. I can’t afford to have it done professionally, so I think a wood chipper would be the next most humane way. I looked up your model and saw it has a 6 inch input, which I think will be perfect for me.
- Dating web site BeatifulPeople.com reportedly kicked out 5,000 members for getting fat over the Holidays. The site’s founder had this to say, “Letting fatties roam the site is a direct threat to our business model and the very concept for which BeautifulPeople.com was founded.” Thank goodness he’s a man of principle.
