  1. I hear you. But it wasn't so much Covid and politics as it was defending a couple of wrestlers who were crapped on. It deserved a response.
  2. I'm pretty sure Dake & Garrett are over 21. Because of that they do have the right of refusal (in the same way private businesses can refuse them service due to no vax). The elderly and those with 1 or more co-morbidity are the segments with the highest vaccination rates. Democrats were on record during the election cycle, not trusting Trump on the vaccines. You can look it up...I'm not. And don't use word parsing & other hallmark techniques politicians use to appear they're on both sides of every issue. Anyone who has read on the subject knows our govt has done horrific things to our minorities in the name of "science". I'm not going to cite things like a dissertation. You can do that on you own. Just search on things like the "Tuskegee Syphilis Study", Henrietta Lacks or "CDC study on MMR".
  3. Potato, potahto. Biden, Harris, Cal Cunningham, & Andrew Cuomo all questioned taking the vaccines if Trump touted them. These are probably the same people bad-mouthing big Pharma who actually developed the vaccines. Actually, these people bad-mouth big anything. Big Pharma, Big Oil, Big this, Big that. What you said and what Americans heard in the election cycle are 2 different things. On top of minorities mistrust, they have only themselves to blame for the vaccination hesitancy. To combat their miscommunication, they did the heavy-handed "vax-to-play" policy that's a hallmark of this administration.
  4. Barring injury, Brooks and Starocci are likely get to the high 80's to low 90's possibly pushing down Snyder, Oliver and IMar. If they are lucky enough to do so, 7 of the top 10 point scorers will be PSU. (Certainly, a lot has to go right for that to happen.)
  5. Most people got the vaccines because they were right for them. Dake & Garrett are young and probably healthier than 99.999% of us fat, old Americans. By the way most of the folks who died were fat, old, both or had some other comorbidity. They're above the age of consent and exercised their rights. Were they supposed to get vaccinated to lead other Americans to do so? Like folks like our VP Kamala Harris? She and others in her party denigrated the vaccines that are now saving millions of at risk Americans during the election cycle just to win the election. I get wanting to beat Trump but that was downright evil. Also, let's not forget the country's sorry history in medically abusing minorities. Is it any wonder folks have trust issues?
  6. No. Jimmy Hoffa was offed and disposed of in Detroit. You know. Kinda like Michigan & Iowa were. North Jersey still has the swamp, the stench off NJ Tpke Exit 13 and horrible traffic. There's a reason Piscataway starts with P - I - S.
  7. State College is not exactly a "foodie" town. One restaurant that I see hasn't been mentioned is Gigi's Southern Table...F2T Southern fare & drinks (www.gigisdining.com). Nice place. We had our daughter's grad party there instead of the usual places. Everyone raved. It's west of SC just off Rt26 (address is Cato Ave technically) by the Nittany Budget Motel. Why it'd be next to a place with "budget" in its name is beyond me. But it is as good or better than any place in that zip code. The Tavern, NL Inn-Whiskers, Penn Stater-Legends, Toftrees-The Fields etc are also good. There's literally not a place in town considered (by outsiders/foodies) as "fine" dining. As far as beer places, Otto's, Happy Valley Brewing, Barrel 21, The Brewery are essentially your options. For Pizza go to Faccia Luna on Atherton. Very good pizza...and James Franklin goes there so there's the celebrity angle. Any one tells you DP Dough, Hi-Way Pizza or Canyon Pizza, just slap them in the face. Lots of Sports Bars...Primanti's, Champs etc.
  8. Northampton (PA) Konkrete Kid Jagger Condomitti (rising HS Jr) commits to Nebraska. Nice Lehigh Valley PA pipeline there with asst coach Snyder from Easton and current Husker Mikey Labs. Morning Call: Konkrete Kid Kommitment
  9. A very pedestrian house in Piscataway (3BR/1Ba, 1K Sq Ft) likely is in the $300K range. One (1) more BR, Ba and 1K sq ft likely adds $100K to the price. Not as bad as I thought it would be.
  10. Its not. In FB, before they joined the B10 they were playing the likes of Temple, Norfolk State, Kent State, Tulane, FIU, Army (when they were bad), UCF (when they were bad). They may have been wins...but the were against the FBS sisters of the poor.
  11. Don't they now have the most points returning by a small margin? If so, then by that measure I would say perhaps a slight favorite. Much different than last season when they were, by just about every measure, an overwhelming favorite.
  12. Hard to argue with Cael's decisions here. Nevills > Haines and Joseph > Marsteller. Other than Lee (possibly Kem), the others that didn't go PSU like Courts, Pletcher and Shields...meh.
  13. Matt Parker just tweeted he's transferring from Lehigh to PSU.
  14. Malta is very possible. I should have stated more clearly that what I proposed is a possibility not a known fact.
  15. It would be quite a feat for PSU to win again. But if Cassar returns, won't they again have the most team points returning? It was quite a feat for Sanderson to replicate Taylor & Ruth with Nolf & Nickal. It suggests he could possibly do it again. Why can't Brooks, Beard, Starocci, Nevills, & Joe Lee load them up for another multi-year run? They are all in the mid to upper weights which traditionally has been PSU's bread & butter.
  16. Lots of Italians, upon immigrating to the US, dropped the vowel at the end of their last name. His last name was likely Cassari or Cassara.
  17. Why the heck isn't Teasdale going to Campbell? Iowa's log jammed at his weight. Plus he'd be getting coached by Cary Kolat...who incidentally like Gavin happens to be an alum of Jefferson-Morgan High School in good ole Greene County PA.
  18. The gum chewing and the shirt are both obnoxious.
  19. Find video of his losses to Isaiah White (CK), Connor Flynn (dual) and Chance Marsteller (RS year at Scuffle). Review those and his loss in the finals and develop a plan. That sounds like as good a place as any to start.
  20. So a guy who had to cut weight to make 97, ate 7000 calories/day since the conclusion of the 2018 season and routinely weighed in at ~230 for the 2019 season gained 50 lbs? LOL Math does not add up. Some of those wrestling announcers may be in some HOF. But that does not mean they do not suffer from diarrhea of the mouth.
  21. Yeah, Trevin Cowman and Joe Arnone really tore it up.
  22. Actually, he'd have been better off telling Fix to get a damn haircut. If Suriano did actually grab the gear, who could tell with that scrub brush on his head? I had the same issue last year with Rasheed, his PIA dreadlocks and the stupid doo-rag he tried to wear.
  23. No. It sounded to me link he was linking to incompetent pollsters. But hey, you have a nice day.
