  1. Stupidest Clothing Design Ever

    Funny thing is, a few NFL teams used to make you have their left chest logo face away from the armpit in all cases. If I remember right it was the Vikings and Cardinals but looks like the Cardinals are the only ones who still do that:

    Never really thought about this, but why when a degree largely means the same wherever it's from (generally speaking, obviously Harvard means more than Southern Illinois-Effingham) do schools have so many credits that won't transfer and wildly different requirements. I mean, I know it's money, but you'd think there would be some regulation there.

    Holy hell! It's May and I forgot about IndyCar! It's the only place in the world that gives a :censored: about non Indy 500 races. Put it tied with Butler Basketball.

    US Open Cup 3rd Round Draw: OKC Derby could happen! Winner of Detroit/Louisville heads to Indy Minnesota may seek revenge against Saint Louis. That's about it for real intrigue outside of some upsets moving on. 2nd Round almost looks better than the 3rd. Locally of course your opinion could differ.

    US Open Cup started last night you guys!! Here's all the scores: http://thecup.us/2016/04/07/2016-lamar-hunt-us-open-cup-schedule-results/ Next week has some really intriguing matches: San Antonio Derby (SAFC vs. Corinthians FC) Charlotte Derby (Eagles vs. Independence) City Derby (Louisville vs. Detroit) Plus there are some fun underdog games with amateur teams playing USL teams! Personally looking forward to Indy Eleven NPSL heading to FC Cincinnati although I won't be able to attend. We'll find out about the 3rd round matches today which will be very cool for me. Will Indy play Louisville/Detroit or Cincinnati? Will we get the OKC Derby we all want to see?

    Outside of Happy Valley however, his reputation is forever tarnished. As it should be.

    Yup, Puerto Rico makes 12 which completes the 2016 NASL threeway of ill-advised locations.

    Pennsylvania is an at will state so they can fire him whenever for whatever they want as long as it doesn't break federal employment laws. If Sandusky wants to claim protection as a pedofile I guess he could have tried that... And by not firing him when he heard about more than 1 allegation, it created an environment where Penn State was ok with child rape as long as they won football games. Later, it allowed the admin to eventually give Sandusky access to his torture chamber (I mean Paterno's football locker room) for years after he retired. I guess my question is, if you personally hear about an employee abusing kids on 2 separate occasions, do you keep him around? Promote him?? Stand by as he starts a charity focused on kids??? Of course you don't. Nobody does. Except JoPa.
  13. Say it ain't so, Joe

    I can't believe Paterno allegedly didn't go to authorities or higher ups of course or pursue this further. But even if you say he did what he should have, do you keep someone on you're staff that's been allegedly abiding kids on MULTIPLE occasions? He alone has the power to make sure Sandusky wasn't around the school without evidence. He could and should have fired him the second there was a second allegation. im not giving him a pass on one, just I can reasonably see a situation where there is an allegation and no evidence so one could think that it could be made up. But 2, 3? Come on its simple, get rid of the guy. That's on Paterno. He had the power to hire and fire staff. And it sounds like there could have been multiple allegations long before Sandusky had any kind of tenure. Disgusting.
  14. Say it ain't so, Joe

    I just discovered that there are Jerry Sandusky truthers. Not JoePa truthers... People who believe Sandusky is innocent. And it's not just one crazy. I read this article: http://www.cnn.com/2016/05/06/us/jerry-sandusky-victims-paterno-penn-state/ Which is horrible and I decided to see what Twitter thought. (I know....). That lead me me to this guy on Twitter who is a nationally syndicated radio host and was bashing that article: https://mobile.twitter.com/Zigmanfreud Which he tweeted this website over and over: http://framingpaterno.com That says Jerry. Sandusky. Is. Innocent. What. The. :censored:.

    I think San Antonio still needs a good amount of money. The county and city owns the stadium so they are the ones putting up the cash for renovations to the stadium. When the Scorpions proposed it in 2014 it would cost upwards of $45 million. Even at that price (it'll be higher most likely) that's not a slam dunk the city/county will do it. Maybe I'm wrong but I think they need more than just the MLS thumbs up. They are certainly much closer than Austin however.
