I have reinvented them in the 'campagin' I'm a part of, breaking away from the Spider, and looking to return maho to its pure form, that of Isawa before the fall of Fu Leng. Heh, My character even took the name of the Snake who doomed the original clan as his family name.

Shoju is quite possibly the most interesting character from the Clan War era. I miss him :(

I had tell my son that he was allowed to say pujols last name. He that it was a bad word. (he's 8 now, had this discussion when he was 5 or 6).

Once I got him to understand he could say it, He wanted to know why he didn't just go by Butthole?

im a seahawks and mariners fan, that tell you anything?

as for college i am a Oregon State, and U of Idaho fan... (gotta support my school right?)


/brofist

I couldn't enjoy the superbowl the Seahawks made it to cause I was beside myself with anxiety. I also couldn't enjoy it cause they lost.

I cut loose the Mariners a long time ago. I don't really care for baseball in the first place so it wasn't a hard decision but I'll always be a die hard Seahawks fan.

No kidding. To this day I don't really like the Steelers because of that Seahawks/Steelers superbowl. Talk about being given a TD.

And re: Mike and Mike:
I like them and listened to them for years when I was driving home at 8am. I still think they're overrated. :)

I think the sports fans of Cleveland, Kansas City and Seattle should get together and form some sort of super-suffering fan club. :)

I like pretty much any sport, but I follow the NFL, NCAAF, and MLB the most. I grew up in PA so I'm a Pittsburgh fan for the professional sports, but Penn State for college. Now that I live near Seattle I also follow the Mariners.

I'm not sure how Mike and Mike are overrated. I mean it's not that they're great, but I never really heard them showered with praise. Seattle actually has a really good morning show host with Mitch Levy. He's one of the best interviewers in sports journalism, imo.

We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

Holy crap, that Broncos vs. Dolphins game was crazy.

Dolphins up 15-0, Broncos come back to make it 15-15 and then win in overtime with a field goal.

I was watching the game on RedZone and it was just flabbergasting to see the Dolphins defense just implode. I hate them, but still...

Someone needs to tell the Saints its illegal to show rape on television. Good lord this blowout shows something people have been saying for years. The Indianapolis Colts are NOTHING without Peyton Manning.

In the NFL, that rule doesn't really exist. In college, where the players are kids, not being paid, and the sheer number of teams creates massive mismatches, yeah there will be a backlash. Though even in college that's going away because of the affect of scoring margin on the polls. Just don't be dumb and do onside kicks or 2 point conversions when you are up by 28 in the fourth quarter and you won't hear much.

In the NFL where players are paid, it's treated differently. Not that there won't be complaints, but they'll mostly fall on deaf ears.
