  1. No idea, but I have to think that something grinding your ear would not be a pleasant experience.
  2. Sounds interesting. I'll participate.
  3. Just between you and me, I don't "hate" Michigan either. And I never will. U of M's surgeons and hospital saved my Dad's life back in 1985. He was diagnosed with cancer and given 6 months to live. The VA set him up with UM in Ann Arbor. Long story short, my Dad died in 2004 from causes entirely unrelated to the cancer. If it hadn't been for the fine folks from Michigan, I don't know if I would have gotten those extra 19 years with my Dad. Don't get me wrong, I can't stand losing to Michigan, but you'll never hear me say I hate Michigan.

  5. This is going to sound way worse than I mean it to, but I have to ask and I hope you're not offended. Is that place is legit? I was under the impression that Full Sail is basically a school that will take anyone whose check doesn't bounce - especially after my idiot brother-in-law was accepted there. Again, I mean no offense, it's just that in my field, Full Sail doesn't have the greatest reputation. I'm genuinely curious because I've been kicking around the idea of taking some courses on film and sound engineering. I've heard that Full Sail offers those type of classes, but I don't want to spend a bunch of money of Florida's version of the Ohio Center for Broadcasting. I know Full Sail is not regionally accredited and that makes it tough to transfer credits or move on to a Masters program at a regionally accredited school like Ohio State, USF, etc. A lot of schools won't even accept credits or degrees from a school that isn't regionally accredited. Have you run into any issues? That's fine, I guess, but you do know that your Ohio State fandom is not recognized by Buckeye Nation, right? And since this is a AMA, what exactly is "one of those kind of Buckeyes?"

  7. Basically a Sports Show #354 This week on BASS: Results and analysis from Round Two of the 2017 Glorious Tournament of Victory. March Madness and the effects of "one and done" players on NCAA basketball. ABC and the NBA aren't too happy with the Cleveland Cavaliers. The World Baseball Classic is pointless, but the baseball has been pretty good. And all the usual BASS-type stuff. Listen via: iTunes Stitcher Spreaker BASS mp3 download
  8. That one really surprised me. Going into the round of 32, I thought the Chimps vs. Detroit was going to be the match up of the tournament. On the selection show, we all agreed that Detroit was a really strong entry. I figured the Chimps were probably done and we were going to get our first Final Four that didn't include a representative from the Chimp Conference. Nope. Detroit was doomed from the start. The Chimps were up 18-0 before Detroit even got on the board.

  10. I did a search and as best I can tell, we don't have a catch-all TV thread. Thanks to Netflix, I've started watching a few shows that I knew about, but had never seen. I thought we could try a thread to discuss shows we've "discovered" via Netflix, Hulu, etc., and all the stuff that's airing currently and so on. I just started watching The League and Sons of Anarchy and I'm totally hooked on both. Thanks again to Netflix, I "discovered" Trailer Park Boys a while back.
  11. Glad to see I'm not the only one that is bothered by people saying things like "that is really unique."
  12. That's really cool. Congrats.
  13. We have plenty of "woe is us, everything sucks" threads around here. (Most of them involving Nike. ) Isn't it about time we have a thread that accentuates the positive stuff going on around us? So, inspired by the "Jesse Ventura got punched by a Navy SEAL" posts over in the boat floater thread, here is the counterpoint to "More proof the world is going to crap" thread. Just one small request; please keep the politics out of here. As a wise man once said: "No one cares about your fantasy sports team, or your politics."
  14. The voting is closed and Round Two of the 2017 GTOV is in the books. Results and Sweet 16 match ups will be announced on Monday's episode of Basically a Sports Show.
  15. Welcome to the 2017 Glorious Tournament of Victory. The 2017 GTOV Selection Show is recording Monday 3/13 at 8pm E. Brackets and voting will be posted in the next few days. There is a slight change in the voting procedure this year. All votes must be cast via the online survey at Survey Monkey. You can still post your votes and reasoning in this thread, but only online votes will be counted for scoring.
  16. GTOV Update: Voting for Round Two ends at 8pm.
  17. This isn't about the DWI. It's about killing someone as a result of the DWI. Killing someone is killing someone is killing someone. You're just as responsible whether you pulled out a gun and shot someone or because you decided to drive while drunk. Honestly, your logic would also suggest that we judge Charles Manson differently because, let's face it, being the mastermind behind those murders doesn't define his entire life. Right? And before anyone goes there, no, I am not comparing Fernandez to Manson nor am I saying they are in any way similar. My point is simply this; when you kill a couple people, your time as the President of the local theatre troupe isn't likely to be the lead line in your obituary. These are the facts as we know them. Jose Fernandez got drunk, drove a boat while drunk, and ended up killing himself and two other people. Sorry, but I don't see the scenario in which you reward that with a patch.
  18. Sorry, but you don't get a trophy or a patch or memorial or a...well...anything nice for driving drunk. Period. Should you manage to survive the stupid and selfish act of drunk driving, you should get a jail cell. I don't care who you are.
  19. WWE PsOTD are not my area. You need to talk to @Ice_Cap on this one.
  20. Just wanted to say I really enjoyed the logic behind these picks.
  21. I flew Frontier from Orlando to Cleveland and back last year. It wasn't too bad at all. I wouldn't want to fly from coast to coast in Frontier seats, but for a 2 hour or less flight, they're tolerable. My flights were on time. Like Hedley said, you get what you pay for. When it comes to Frontier, the more you pay, the better it gets.
  22. I wish Chimp Biker Gang/Darwin's Disciples vs. Detroit hadn't ended up being a 2nd round match up, but that aside, Round Two is of to a helluva start. Without giving anything away, some of the match ups that looked on paper to be blow outs are really tight and a few that looked to be really tight are surprise blow outs. You just never know which way things are going to go in the GTOV.
