Practice makes perfect.....post on....
it drives xshub absolutely insane when he tries to be a “brother” like that.
That's where they needed Gary Johnson in there to agree.
Only one INT. It was the getting mugged of the ball while being sacked that hurt.
Though the net “QB sack/fumble/return for TD” stat was a pleasant zero.
Appalling? Coarse maybe...but I thought he was describing the third level of Maslow’s hierarchy....
Hillary Clinton did a better ethnic accent than Obammy when she read that Harriet Tubbman poem or whatever she read during her campaign.
i thought it was appalling.
when she was TAHRED? yeah, that was also ridic!
I have a hard time looking at Big Ben - he looks so much like the ugly former husband of one of my best friends. She is an absolute knock out and he is just so fugly no one could ever figure out why she fell for him. As it turns out, he was exactly what I thought and left her for another woman.....and he will leave her when he gets bored.
Thanks .... actually, more so dumbfounded than inspired, that this melange of young, relatively untested players and a “journeyman” Quarterback could essentially pull off the same trick two weeks in a row...
(No love lost that it was New England, either ;)
Hey, he didn’t use the N word!
The only reason i even know the outcome of NFL games is bc my hockey peeps that i follow on twitter comment on it. Slava Malamud is a foreign correspondent for a Russian sports daily and he also contributes to the WaPo and he was the one tweeting about the Bills game yesterday.
No, I only remember James Watt's quite accurate description of gov't diversity.
right, but the rest of it was just ridic. i only remembered the loose shoes part so i was taken aback when i googled it and saw the rest.
don’t recall that and have only a vague recollection of James Watt being controversial.
Sorry, before my time. ;) I heard my grandparents talk about them though...
He described a panel of his as being properly diverse because it had “a black, a woman, two Jews and a cripple.”
It was then I learned that people don’t like people telling the truth too bluntly.
And they had talent.
Yes, and they had talent. But one must not mock the gods of affirmative action.
