Not exactly. It’s more like selling an identical house every year, for six years, but there is a contract that says that you are required to sell it to a specific person at a very steep discount. After the sixth year, you finally get to sell it at market value...only to find that the circumscribed group of people who…
If you believe that there is such a thing as alpha, you’re not an alpha.
Crazy idea: Play Ozil as the central striker and Wilshere as the No. 10.
I didn’t see Billy saying that either Wynalda or Solo (or Martino) would have made good presidents, just that they ran as “reformers” and had some support from fans. Part of my problem with the article is that he doesn’t really say, if Cordeiro is a poor choice to implement reform, just who exactly this “iconoclastic…
And Jori Lehtera! He’s...a guy
He’s got kind of an off-brand Ryan Reynolds thing going
The teams who were most willing in the past to eat those out years are not willing this year, mostly because they are working to stay under the luxury tax and/or saving their big bullets for next year’s much better free agent pool.
He went to the Donald Trump Oversized Jacket Store. Can’t tell from the photo if he also bought an Extended Tie.
That’s why I stopped paying for insurance. If I’m going to be broke either way, I may as well save money on the premiums.
Giroud has limitations, but the things he is good at he does quite well. I think he’s an ideal striker against clubs that sit back and try to pack the box, both for set pieces and because he has very nifty one-touch passing skill.
As a lawyer in a relationship with a non-lawyer, I wince internally at the “so, what did you do today?” question because there’s usually no way I can answer it without sounding like a douchebag.
The conservative philosophy is basically, “I’ve got mine; fuck you.”
Oh, you had to go there. Now it’s on. Sound the retreat!
Replace coin toss with “football on a pole.”
I usually tip 10 percent on takeout orders. Last night, for example, our order was about $40 and I left $4. Was $4 “overpaying” for the 2-3 minutes that the person took to bag up my order and ring me out? Well, probably, but between the two of us I figure she will probably be more thankful for the $4 than I will miss…
“I don’t care about an athlete’s political beliefs. Unless, of course, they are contrary to mine.”
The level of denial with these guys is incredible. I know of a guy (sort of a family acquaintance) who was arrested after falling prey to a Chris Hansen-like sting when he was going to meet a “15 year old girl” (undercover cop) for sex. After the ensuing search warrant, of course they found tons of kiddie porn. He…
When your options are “try to dribble around this guy” or “pass to Danny Welbeck/Alex Iwobi, who will either muff the first touch or sky a shot into the 45th row” I might opt for the dribble, too.
Incompetence is almost always a better explanation than conspiracy.
