    Check this one out. I'd love to be a fly on the wall down there today.

    It's mentioned on a thread below, but I certainly think it "deserves" its own.

    Agreed (sloughing off his own db!)

    Story history should be able to ID the culprit rather easily.
    Charlotte's ski ad in the mid-90s still much, much better.

    Isn't that word the one that popped into Mark Richt's head when he started watching LSU tape?

    This is why you don't let disgruntled co-workers know your password.

    If you're a friend with Paul on Facebook, you gotta go to his page and see the comments -- including his. Priceless.

    I am unaware -- can someone post or at least describe the Charlotte ad?

    It's times like these that I also regret not having a hard copy of that small paper that had the high school player who "sucks donkey dicks and doesn't even wipe the shit off." Or the other paper that said the girls soccer players were celebrating their conversion to lesbianism.

    Ah, mistakes.

    So other than not capitalizing the F and leaving off the exclamation point/period, he's good, right?

    Ah, yes, the notorious Bubba Dixon story. I was fortunate enough to get a copy of that story and still have it to show my co-workers so nobody tries to get cute.

    Oh my God.

    I think that's the worst one I've ever seen.
