    Have you ever smoked Weed before???

    I've never smoked weed before, but a good amount of my friends do, and I'm totally fine with it. Honestly, I've always thought it should be legal. Even in high school, all of my friends smoked, but I usually just had a few drinks. I figured if I didn't try it back then, I would probably never try it. People I know are shocked when they find out that I've never smoked. I'm a pretty happy, fun loving guy, and most just assume that I smoke all the time. Haha.

    All things Sports Talk Radio - DMV (met)

    Same here. After football season ended, I almost completely stopped listening to DC sports talk. It's just the same stuff over and over about the Redskins, and it gets a little tiring. Even if the team was coming off of a great season, it would be tiring. The takes on hockey, baseball and hoops have never been particularly strong, and they just don't spend much time on those sports. I know the Redskins are where their bread is buttered, but how much can you talk about the same stuff? I still listen to Cooley and Kevin every once in a while and Bram occasionally, but my listening will pick up around training camp...if 980 is still around by then. I've basically been listening to Sirius and podcasts, but I can't bring myself to listen to 106.7. I've never been able to since they switched to sports talk. Like Riggo mentioned, it's just constant negativity. I get it, that's their schtick, and it gets people riled up, but I don't want to listen to that. But as someone mentioned, that frequency is just familiar to so many people in the area. I have family members that talk about how much they hate 106.7, but they still listen to it because they can always get it, and they've listened to that station for about three decades. It's just a natural reaction at this point.

    The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    Hearing the news about Phil was like a punch in the stomach. I understand that things change, and all good things must come to an end, but I've grown up with Phil Chenier. I don't live in the D.C. area anymore, but I try to go to Wizards games when they play here in Charlotte, and I've talked to Phil a handful of times after games. He's always been so nice and so approachable, unlike some people in the media. The last time I talked with him, he came up in the stands after the game and hung out with my friends and I for a long time. It was a great talk about basketball and broadcasting, and it only ended because eventually we had to go. It felt like he would have happily hung around and talked all night about hoops or anything else. Just such a nice man. Although I know he'll be around, I'm going to miss him on the broadcasts.

    Reading that just made me feel all warm and fuzzy.

    So...was that not a majority draw? Or did Buffer just botch that? I am so confused. I called majority draw as soon as it was over, but then I was confused when they read the cards.

    Damn...that's crazy. I was just reading about that. Apparently they didn't know who he was, it was just a random thing. Haha...I like this line: http://thebiglead.com/2016/08/24/nick-diaz-involved-in-brawl-at-las-vegas-night-club/

    http://mmajunkie.com/2016/08/report-former-ufc-welterweight-title-challenger-rory-macdonald-headed-to-bellator I figured this was going to happen as soon as he became a free agent. I have never been a huge MacDonald fan, but he is a very good fighter. I assume he is going to get paid very well, and good for him. He deserves it. I don't think it is a huge loss for the UFC though. Although he is an excellent fighter, he never seemed, to me at least, like he was a "must see" fighter. Earlier in his career, he seemed like he had all the talent in the world, but he has never really gotten over that hump, and I have to wonder how much that war with Lawler took out of him. He took a year off, and he didn't have much for Wonderboy in his last fight. Thompson deserves a lot of credit for that, but Rory just never got going. He's still a young guy, but he has taken a lot of damage in his career thus far. It's going to be interesting to see what happens for him in Bellator. They obviously are not as deep, but they have some good fighters at 170, as Benson Henderson found out.

    I agree. I liked Sheehan and Loverro. I liked Cooley and Czabe. But Sheehan and Cooley just don't have the same kind of chemistry together. There is just a whole lot of awkwardness on that show. I am definitely not writing them off, it could very well get better over time. But I do not listen as much as I initially did. However, I am pretty excited for Bram's glorious return.

    Did you see that is was a PED? Everything I am seeing just says "a potential doping violation." So I guess it could be a PED, or the ever popular "drug of abuse." Unless you have seen something different.I guess at the end of the day, it does not matter, but I would just be curious given his past and everything he has been saying about being clean.

    Unbelievable. Seems like the only person that can beat Jon Jones is himself.

    The Official Maryland Terrapins Thread

    And I don't have a problem with the school, I have a problem with the travel company attached to the school. It's a setup to essentially launder money to get players. Is the point to get these kids schooling (hahahahahaha) and develop them from a basketball perspective, or to make tons of cash? It just feels like the same thing as the shady basketball factories that are routinely set up and shut down and lose accreditation here in the U.S. that were only there to make money off of talented kids. I guess the rules are a little more fuzzy and it is not as easy to monitor a place like that when it is in Spain instead of a place like Raleigh. And by the way, sorry...I read your initial post wrong Mr. Pink. I read that as Maryland had scheduled a trip, instead of you assuming that they will take one. So I should not be looping Maryland in with the other schools like Louisville, NC State and Minnesota that make these travel trips a common thing. But you are right, Maryland will likely end up taking one. Haha. And its weird that the article link no longer works.

    You'll see Kentucky take a $5M overseas travel trip that would have cost $50K elsewhere.

    That's not true. There are plenty of schools that don't blatantly cheat or resort to shady stuff and do just fine with recruiting. But to your point, there is a whole lot of garbage that goes on out there. The problem is that the NCAA does not have the manpower or the backbone to do anything about a lot of it. With that said, I am not calling what Maryland is doing here cheating, because the tactic has been out there for a while and the NCAA has not done anything about it.
