I hate Boston College and Georgia Tech football with a passion...both are average football programs that get TONS of love from the media. BC is ranked 7 / 6 in the country even after beating 4 unranked , below-average teams and a so-so Georgia Tech team (and keep in mind Georgia Tech is also a crap team with one talented player by the name of Choice). And when you see teams like USF and Kentucky that actually , you know , beat good teams , it makes me even madder. (USF beat WVU , and Kentucky beat Louisville.)
Funny how a VT fan can hate BC and GT much more than Miami.
And Family Guy is losing its humor , this episode really isn't funny.

Halitosis and worse vs. worst
Rant #1 - DO NOT come into my office and lean over my shoulder for several minutes while we try to interpret a poorly written zoning code after eating an onion bagel with scallion cream cheese! Just DON'T!
Totally unrelated rant #2 - This thread has been used a fair number of times for grammar policing so I'm going to continue it. Worse is a word you use to compare one thing to another. Worst means that something is the most bad of all possibilities. Daniel Cabrera is a worse pitcher than Erik Bedard, not a worst pitcher. Of course, you might happen to think (although I'd disagree with you) that Cabrera is the worst pitcher on the Orioles' staff or even in MLB. The only time you should say he is "the worse" is if you're saying something along the lines of, "between Cabrera and Bedard, Cabrera is definitely the worse of the two," but that's kind of an awkward construction.

ps: I first took a class at GT in '82. My first day on campus, I saw a 30-something guy leading a student-wearing-a-tie across campus... the 30-something guy was holding the student's tie and leading him as if the tie was a leash... I stopped somebody and said, "what the hell is that about?". The person I stopped said, "oh, that's just an assistant coach taking a football player to class... whenever you see that, it means the guy cut Calculus yesterday... he won't do it again..." I thought to myself, "Holy cow, these people are serious!"
pps: I taught huge freshman-and-sophomore CS classes, and had plenty of athletes, since it was a required course... and those courses were a lot of work and pretty hard... I found that the athletes didn't whine and complain like many of the regular students did... I think athletes know what it's like to be tired and frustrated and still have work to do... I used to think that student-athletes had a free ride, academically... but my experience at GT raised my opinion of what most student-athletes actually do... at least at GT, anyway...
ppps: Ever notice that the awards for top college player, top college coach, and top AD are all named after GT guys? Plus, their song is one of the best...

When will the plague on this earth known as "Sarah Silverman" be gone? I can't stand her since she started her show. I used to be a big fan... not so anymore.

So I was down in Ocean City this past weekend for my Bachelor Party and the place was over run because of this lame festival where all these losers (most often teenagers) bring their "suped" up VW Golf's and GTI's. I don't think I've seen so much trash in such a small area!!
