Pitaro was hoisted by his own Le Batard.
The oldest active fighter pilot retired in 2015 at age 54, so it’s not like it’s out of the realm of possibility compared to probably everything else that’s going to be in this movie.
If he had ended up on teh cowboys and Emmitt was on the lions Barry would have had 25k yards rushing and emmitt would have been a night manager at a bowling alley after 3 years in the league.
I’m sure watching it on grass makes the experience even better.
I say this genuinely, not as a hipster — how long have you read Deadspin?
at first glance i thought this was a post about the TSA
I’ve been buying shirts and jackets from Alton Lane for 3 years now. Best clothes I’ve owned; I’ll never go back to off the rack. Cost is about 3x, so I just save up 3x longer. It’s very worth it.
When you buy a suit in Hong Kong, they do essentially the same thing with a tape measure, but they probably note fewer individual measurements. It’s a bit disconcerting to have someone poking, prodding, measuring and treating you as if you were a piece of furniture. Inseam- whoops! Hips. Fly length. Vest - a little…
I imagine the solitary confinement thing is typical when you lock up a foreigner, almost a protective custody type thing, so that doesn’t seem unusual to me.
Must be nice. Feel like a tough guy, do whatever you want, screw it up royally, not get punished, get the same sort of case and screw it up to the point there’s two dead, and what? Meh. Go home and sleep in your bed with a clear conscience, I’m sure. Cuz accountability for cops is often a laughable concept. Nobody…
Agree all of this BS is outdated. I ski 25+ days/year both in bounds and out of bounds and often with any number of knuckle-dragging friends.
Been skiing for about a decade longer than you, on Michigan boilerplate ice (you folks get way more and way better snow than we do - there’s only really one hill here that gets most of its base naturally), and I can admit that skis are just as loud as boards. I can also admit that the noise isn’t annoying enough to…
This is a great, great article, it does a great job of recapping the history and the issues, pointing out the stereotypes and the fallacies. Good use of video too.
If I’m going to destroy my reputation, I think I’m going with drugs and prostitutes over cheating in a meaningless but very public sporting event.
I think the main point here is what you pointed out, that most of this is a result of 30 year old stereotypes that no longer exist. Back then the the two crowds were very different, but now they are basically one in the same.
“I think the root of this, 30 years ago now, was that snowboarders were young, skiers, not so young.”
As a snowboarder in Colorado where it is about 50/50 skiers to snowboarders. The majority of people that get in the way are beginner skiers bombing down the hill because they didn’t learn how to stop. Also skiers that take wide turns on catwalks ruining all the speed for snowboarders forcing them to unstrap and skate.
A few rules to follow.
I’m an expert skier and snowboarder and live and ride in the Wasatch. I’m out from 40-80 days a year, depending on snow levels. I honestly prefer the backcountry to resorts. That said, as I both ski and ride, I’m on a lift I hear complaints from both sides. They’re all baseless and pathetic. I will say that novice…
How long before some hipster craft brewery makes a limited edition IPA called “Julius Randle with Hops”?
