That would also give me naches.
Kol HaOlam Kulo as interpreted by Breslovers and danced by a mixed pair would be mindblowingly awesome.
That’s a very fair point right there.
Everyone on both these teams would probably be required by club officials to kneel for the Marcha Real and then stand and belt out Els Segadors (the anthem of Catalonia whose chorus basically just repeats instructions to give the Castilians a “good whack with your sickle”) if they even played any songs before the…
Ol’ Henry is worried, he sees Catherine “Proud of the Confederacy” Templeton and his good ol’ boy buddies Yancey McGill and Kevin Bryant in the rearview closing fast before the Republican gubernatorial primary, and so he’s pulling out all the taxation, flag, abortion, and immigration stops before the election this…
I promise to sit my from-off ass down through the whole thing here in Charleston for you, and follow that up with a rousing rendition of John Brown’s Body.
That’s a good one! My favorite to use back when I lived in Detroit was that Michigan was so excited about beating us one time, they wrote their whole fight song about it.
My favorite thing when I went in there to ref intramurals on fall Saturdays was seeing visiting D3 football players realizing that it was real, and then pointing out the mark on it from where Berwanger had used it as a doorstop in his dental office.
I would argue that the family connections in wrestling are something fans are much more aware of up front, and (with the hilarious exception of Roman Reigns) much more ok with than people who’re consuming other cultural products. Wrestling literally advertises family ties, in a way that these other industries either…
In fairness to Rocky Johnson’s son, the tradition of nepotism in his original line of work is much more generally-accepted and much less outwardly frowned-upon than in the other lines of work you accurately covered.
No Mental Reservation about starring this.
As a Clipper fan from before Lob City, I think I speak for most of us when I say I knew it couldn’t last.
Trust me, we’re as surprised as you that we’re not the Worst Carolina at the moment. Hell, our Chamber-of-Commerce Republicans even shot down a bathroom bill and teamed up with the Democrats in the General Assembly to elect a black guy Chief Justice of our Supreme Court!
If this stadium is what turns the People Mover into “not a white elephant boondoggle” that would be hilarious.
Biola is the Bible Institute Of Los Angeles, and is a mostly-real, super-right-wing evangelical college. It was founded by a California oilman and his fundamentalist Presbyterian buddies at around the same time they were founding the largest private homeless shelter in America.
In fairness to Colonel Sanders, he actually had very high personal standards for quality control, (for gravy in particular) and only the motherfuckers who wrenched his business away from him started lowering the quality. Interesting dude, that Colonel Sanders.
The most important thing about the Anglo-Irish Treaty negotiations is that Collins was a Hurling man and De Valera liked Rugby.
In Canada, Blue is the Conservatives (or in Ontario and a couple of other places, the “Progressive C0nservatives”) and Red is the Liberals and Orange is the New Democrats and Light Blue is the Bloc Quebecois and Green is the Greens (except in Alberta where it’s the Wildrose Alliance) so don’t worry, it’s all different!

For many years I’ve read this blog, and for many years I’ve broadly agreed with most of your Takes, and defended them to my less-liberal or less-food-adventurous friends. This is your best Take ever. Thank you.
