"Never got the chance to meet Sean Taylor, but his legacy is embedded in our franchise. Because of that... we play with him every game."
Sorry, fellas, it's not as much a Penthouse Letter as it is more of a "considering using a plugged in radio as a bath toy" thing.
Eh, I'll be fine. Just gets to me some nights.
My home town was carved out of swampland.
Some girl dump you or what bluefood? We need more info.
The Atlanta Braves are so awesome.
<ixcuincle> the kind people in the other chat are trying to explain arbitration to me
<ixcuincle> i couldn't be more clueless
Plaschke> in 2013
<Plaschke> i'm so confused
<Plaschke> what happens in 2013
<Plaschke> with buster posey
<XtremeDave> he becomes arbitration eligible
<Plaschke> which means?
<XtremeDave> and the giants have to pay him
<Plaschke> he gets less money
<XtremeDave> no dumb****
<Plaschke> than if he is called up in mid june
<Plaschke> for mysterious reasons
<Plaschke> THIS MAKES NO SENSE
=-= YOU are now known as ixcuincle
<Lundqvist_Vezina> it takes a year longer for him to become arbitration eligable
<XtremeDave> dont you understand how contracts work?
<ixcuincle> dude i ignore that ****
And now what gets REALLY confusing is with rookies like Strasburg and Posey being called up in mid-June, and Heyward making the team at the beginning of the season, what is Heyward's arbitration situation...will he even have an arbitration...
I ****ing HATE the business aspect of sports. This arbitration **** is the worst. It isn't as bad in the NFL. In the NFL you are simply given a 3 year , 5 year contract, and you go out there and play. It isn't as complicated as MLB. You don't have to have a meeting after 3 years.

I didn't want to go in and crap on Hubbs' thread, but I really hate "mash-ups."
The only time they're good is when artists sit down with each other and collaborate their songs into new remixes. Most of them just come from random DJs figuring out what songs contain the same measure as other songs and quickly throw them together to play over weekend power hour mixes. And they're just terrible as a result.
And I actually agree with you about the vast majority of mashups. About 75% of them are just terrible. That's why I meant sure to title the thread "Good Mashups." The bad ones are really bad, but, at the same time, the good ones are really good. I absolutely love the Skynyrd/Nelly one I posted. Probably my favorite mashup ever.
I have no clue what a mashup is but I avoided modern music long ago
BPGlobalPR is HILARIOUS:
@bpTerry just asked a scientist why there are so many crows in the south. Turns out they are seagulls. It was AWKWARD. #bpcares
RIP Blake Fomby... You will be missed... Love you brother. Hope they keep the roof open at Cowboys Stadium so you can still watch them from up there...
I think it was a pretty common college dorm/apartment poster.
The best was when this girl who was dating a guy in my fraternity became some regional marketing coordinator for Victoria's Secret, and she got us these slightly larger than life-size cut outs of the Victoria's Secret Angels.
It was like having Marissa Miller and Alessandra Ambrosio Fatheads for our game/TV room. Now those were popular.
Easily my least favorite mash-up ever is the Green Day/Oasis one, but then SHF went and posted it along with his pretty serious emotional story that connects to it, so now I really have to keep my mouth shut in that thread.
Besides my general distaste for the mash-ups and the artistic laziness involved in them, I'm also partially bitter because a couple years ago, one of my absolute favorite bars in Tallahassee switched up their Friday nights (the best night to go to this bar) to this "Mashed Up Power Hour" theme and that's all the place plays until about 1 AM.
The DJ there basically just puts on an entire Girl Talk playlist and that's it. Drove me completely crazy.
