Well I would certainly never pass up an opportunity to blame FIFA.
I appreciate this thoughtful counterpoint!
“Score all the goals you can but maybe don’t celebrate like crazy when you’re up double digits” just seems like such a reasonable and common-sense take. The fact that it’s getting so much push-back is absolutely wild to me.
That second tweet tells two stories. First, like you say, yes, zero goals means they’ve been shut down. But 30 scoring chances, ten of which were “high danger,” seems to suggest they’ve been a bit unlucky and/or faced excellent goal-tending (which they did).
Reminds me a little bit (definitely not the same thing but a little bit!) of Jeb trying to sustain a campaign based on “my father was a great man!” Didn’t work great for our sweet boy Jeb.
“Please do a solid favor and go do something which is anatomically impossible”
If I could just add to this, I believe the correct pronunciation is Danny DeVito saying the word “whores.”
Username checks out.
I don’t think the earnest enthusiasm (the first few words of the tweet) is the issue here. His claim that the shot should be taught (??) in any film studies class is a bit silly and perfectly worthy of some tame, mild mockery.
Fortunately for Olsen, she missed out on the part and scored big in the Marvel Cinematic Universe instead,
I love your Destiny stuff, Jason, but would just like to point out that r/DestinytheGame is a notoriously whiny and entitled sub, even for gaming, and does not necessarily reflect the sentiment of the majority of the people who play.
As a someone who mainly enjoys PvP, I do feel like we get neglected. Even in this article, Jason refers to Whisper as one of the most critical guns in the game, when what he means is the PvE game. There are a lot of PvP people out there! We matter!
Oh most definitely.
“I just don’t have the words anymore.”
I’m being a bit pedantic here, but I’m not sure I agree this is poor writing. I would guess the script did not contain a line calling for this action, but rather it was something the actors just did or the director(s) instructed them to do.
We did in fact re-up on the contract by ritualistically sacrificing Bobby Valentine in late 2012.
This thread is the best thing happening on Splinter today. Thank you for this gift.
Accepting the word of LARRY FUCKING KUDLOW as ironclad proof of something is a little bizarre from Splinter!
As a guy who does follow Star Wars, I would categorize this more as, “just a fun thing some people did.”
Absolutely a legitimate question, I just think it’s among many. I’m a very literal person.
