Yeah, the way they lost was strange.

And not just in the margin.  The formula for a big upset is basically to play great, aggressive defense to keep the score down and frustrate the other team then slow down the game on offense, bomb threes and hope you are hot.

Thatís not really what happened.  UMBC DID play good defense, but it wasn't small team, scrappy defense, it was just good defense.  And I donít feel like UVA got taken out of their game, they simply couldnít score because the defense was good.   UMBC DID hit a ton of threes, but they also hit a ton of layups, open jumpers and everything else.  They did not slow the game up, they scored like 50 points in the second half.

It basically looked like your typical 1-16 thrashing, only if UMBC were the 1 seed.  UVA was the one trying to keep it low scoring and scrappy and managed to hang tough for a half despite looking like the worse team.  And then UMBC adjusted, found their groove and blew them out.

It didnít feel upset-ish at all.  It just felt like UMBC was the way better team.  Which is not the case.  Still UMBC would have beaten any team in the nation last night.  I mean, they beat the consensus 1 team by a ton, so thatís not exactly a bold statement.  But itís weird to say.  UVA could have played a little better but I felt like they were mostly just overwhelmed by a vastly superior side.

I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. My favorite bit was when she's trying to remove the bullet from his arm.

Let me know if you want to know what the early easter egg was in the film...
I'm curious. Anymore I avoid trailers and ads for movies I want to see, so I probably missed it. I like doing what I can to take a movie on its own terms.

I knew very little about the movie before going to see it. I knew it was filmed in Atlanta and I remember liking the trailer. But, that was it.

In the very beginning of the movie, when the McAdams and Bateman characters meet, they are on a train car. Since the movie was filmed here, I was wondering if this scene was filmed on MARTA or if it was a set piece. I started looking at the signs and markings to see if anything screamed MARTA when I noticed the flashing sign in the back that said, "DON'T TRUST GARY". I was wondering who Gary could be...and then we met the Jesse Plemmons character 2-3 minutes later. BOOM.
Oh, jeez, yeah, that would ruin half the fun. Glad I missed it.

the most surprising thing is how decisive it was........
you'd expect that historic loss to be by one point on a last second shot, as in a fluke

I donít know how I feel about this.  I donít dislike UVA but at the same time I kinda despise UVA.

Itís like reading the super-hot, horrible bitchy girl who you fantasized about nonetheless in HS has been arrested for meth possession. The satisfaction of Karmic justice, the schadenfreud, the loss of innocence, the pain and anger dredged up all over again, bittersweet nostalgia.... itís all in there.  But floating in lukewarm water because like, I donít care about UVA that much.

But you get the idea.

FCC announced today they've abandoned plans for a stadium in the West End and that they'll land in either Oakley or Newport. I hope it's Newport. And I hope this saga ends sooner rather than later.

IMHO the club made a more than reasonable offer to the West End. All the West End and CPS saw was dollar signs, and they wanted more, more, more. Now they'll get nothing. Serves them well.

I love Nippert for FCC, but the reality is that it won't get an MLS franchise, period. And I want FCC in the MLS.

thanks to all of you who posted these archive links, truly.

I had thought that my tens of thousands of posts on the erstwhile WOXY.com message boards were lost forever, but I guess not. I am not a techie so all of this is a new revelation to me. I just strolled through the 2009 Bonnaroo messages, omg, has it really been that long? Such great memories.

It makes me miss the WOXY.com message board and its community that much more. It was something truly special, and something that will never be replicated.

wow, that's wild seeing that page again.

Here's mine, not much to see though: http://web.archive.org/web/20111025194644/http://woxy.com/boards/member.php?u=1742

Now I'm trying to think of the sock puppets I had. I think there was something aimed at duemellon. Probably more than one to be honest.

CR and I know a lot of folks who are/were Crew season ticket holders. They are totally bummed about the state of affairs since the Precourt era dawned.

I feel the same as ZK and others about what's happening with FCC. The way MLS works seems like a Ponzi Scheme ready to blow. I would be quite happy for FCC to stay in USL for a few more years and continue to play at Nippert. But this is Cincinnati, home of shitty stadium deals, so ...
