    You could also argue that, okay, he won the game, but that doesn't necessarily mean he doesn't suck balls. That is, Kenny Chesney's balls. (hi, sportschick!!) :D :D

    No one is saying you can't ask for advice, just be careful about the details you choose to reveal. People have actually lost jobs for stuff they've posted on here.

    I'd like to second the frou-frou drink comment, for the record. ;)

    Being called a douche is a term of endearment from spnited. Unless you're in any way from, previously lived in or have anything to do with the Southeastern Conference, whether you care about it or not. Then he means it.

    Posting pictures of Brook Jacoby with a porn stache will cause you to be dead to a certain female poster other than me.

    Ok, you hooked me Double Down, who is the best college beat writer out there covering mid-major football teams in the south?

    Does he happen to have a unhealthy fascination with the Cleveland Browns? ;)

    Seriously, I'd rather have a reporter willing to ask a "dumb" question than one who tries to fake and bluster.

    Those inbred fucks. :D

    Oh, yeah, we also tend to use the above to point out tough-to-detect sarcasm.

    Except for me. I'm not savvy enough to figure out how to do the scarcasm font. I'm Internet retarded.
  11. Thanks everybody for all the help catching up. I'm not big on patience.

    The Style Guide is great, though I'm not yet halfway through it. I agree that should be tacked. Would be a big help.

    Sarcasm-font challenged:

    Type (font=courier)(color=blue) before your text and (/font) afterward -- except you replace the ()s with []s. That's all from this nerd.
