  1. Thanks man! It was quite an experience.
  2. So the last 16 hours or so was pretty interesting. I drove three hours to see IRON MAIDEN in concert (Nashville) On the way, I got rear-ended on I-40 while traveling about 70 MPH. Person never looked up (presumably from her phone) and slammed right into the back of me. Neither of us were injured. Her truck was totaled. Mine got some nice dings but in the words of the state trooper was "driveable." She was insured and they're paying. Fuck a high speed interstate wreck, I'm not missing Maiden. Succeeded in making it to the show late enough to miss most of horrible opening act Ghost. My friends waited on me to arrive before going in. They're righteous dudes. IRON MAIDEN took the stage. Sold-out Bridgestone Arena lost its shit. Bruce. Pyrotechnics. Bruce. Giant Eddie inflatables. FUCKING BRUCE. "SCREAM FOR ME NASHVILLE!!!" Nashville screamed. Took an hour just to get out of downtown, got home at 2:30 AM Back awake at 6:00, at work by 7:00 Tired AF. Utterly, completely worth it.
  3. Awful news to wake up to this morning. A unique and singular talent gone from the world way too soon. RIP.
  4. Of all the ESPN layoffs today that's the one that boggles my mind the most, too. It's nothing less than ESPN throwing in the towel on serious baseball coverage.
  5. Gonna watch this weekend as well. The book is incredible, one of my all time favorites. Can't wait.
  6. They'll make a fortune off those, but not nearly as much as they could make because they're Nintendo and they hate making money.
  7. Yeah, SWTOR has earned a good bit of criticism for some missteps, but the writing and story presentation have always been superb and have made noticeable advancements the last couple of years. A lot of travel for work lately so I'm only about halfway through ME:A (~50 hours). Definitely a lot of sameness with the feel of the different planets. All have basically the same stuff, the environments just look different. I'm still having fun but I can already tell this game won't have the replay value of the originals.
  8. Yep, all it's going to do is create a blistering secondary market where lots of Persons not named Nintendo are going to rake in cash off the things. That company's logic makes no sense whatsoever.
  9. Calkins actually went easy on Tubby in that article. The local radio hosts have spent the entire week eviscerating him, mostly around his lack of engagement with the city and his laziness on the recruiting trail.
  10. I love the idea of a Mass Effect TV series. With effective writing and a strong cast it could be hugely successful.
  11. Very happy for Sergio, really looked like he'd blown another one with that short miss on the final regulation hole. What a rollercoaster finish. Rose is such a good dude I would've been fine with him winning too.
  12. I love it!
  13. Infiltrator, Engineer or Soldier for me. Also, played exclusively FemShep the whole time. I tried BroShep once and it just felt wrong. I hope they get Destiny 2 for the PC right because Destiny was/is a pretty fun time-waster on PS4, but I really prefer gaming on a PC.
  14. I don't disagree with your assessment but this comment makes me wish we had some IU fans on this board. Their level of buttmad would be extreme. Speaking of which, the AP just yesterday released its ranking of the all-time top 100 programs. Look who checks in tied for that coveted 100 spot!
  15. I would love to see South Carolina win it if for no other reason than they were so far off the radar when the tournament began, and unlike past low-seed winners (i.e. UConn a few years back) they have no history of competing at this high a level. It's just fun to watch a team come out of nowhere like that.
