I am not an american and really have no particular intrest in the sport (appart from it's system of distributing funds equally amongst teams to promote fairness, unusually socialist for the US), but I recently came to thinking that american football could be improved upon immeasurably by adding two players on each team whose job it would be to use the blue and orange portal guns, so the ground would be portal-able and each player would have a portal-able area on his chest and back. This…
To summarize: Is Benjamin Franklin a President? No. Was Benjamin Franklin a President? Still no. Is beyonce pregnant? No. Is beezid a scam? Not technically, but it's definitely a huge rip-off. Is Brett Favre married? Yes. Is Bam Margera married? Yes, technically. Is bleach over? NEVER! Is bronchitis contagious? Oh my, yes. Is black a color? That turns out to be a really interesting question that depends on your definition of "black" and your definition of "color." Is… Continue
So this isn't really very relevant anymore, since the game happened on Saturday, and today is Monday, but I'm going to write about it anyways because it needs to be written about! (aka i need to vent about it.)
Saturday was the Notre Dame/Tulsa college football game which I naively attended, thinking that Notre Dame being Notre Dame and Tulsa being Tulsa, it would be an easy win. WRONG. Instead of witnessing what should have been the most convincing effortless win I'd ever seen, I think I…
I've spent all day today in a sleepy haze. And what I love about Fridays is that I can do that and still do all of my classwork because it's Friday and we had a pep rally (or the Freshmen and the Seniors did) so, no one wanted to give us much work anyway.
Personally, I've never been one for pep rallies because I'm generally not a peppy person, and I'm not fond of football. Plus, it's always really hot in the gym.
There is one thing that I've always been good at and thats catching things. Catching footballs, basketballs, baseballs, germs, colds.... yes I'm still sick *sigh* and I seemed to get worse today. I really hope I get better soon cause my throat feels all icky!
The bad news is I'm sick on my birthday... the good news is that I got halo reach so at least I have something to do while being sick.… Continue

In which Hank talks about winning, and why it's important, and what it actually is. Because winning, I don't think, means what we think it means. And despite the fact that, in the end, we all lose, the frustration and pain of losing is extremely important to humanity, and also to the feeling of win.
AND YOUTUBE WON VIACOM'S CRAP LAWSUIT AGAINST THEM!!! Hoorayyy!!!
Ahhhhhhh!!!!! (I know that no one could hear...but I totally made that noise as I typed it...because I'm cool like that)
So I have to write this paper for composition called a "INFORMATIVE SURPRISING ESSAY"...which I had never heard of before I went to class on Wednesday...but anywho...it is essentially informs people about a topic but then puts a surprising twist on it (didn't see that one coming...).

Last Friday i was dragged by my heels to the highschool varsity game by my dad because he said it "beats laying on your fat ass at home" so i tried to find… Continue

I can't believe I failed to mention what's about to come, but seriously... More reason to think football is America's new pastime.
Pretty much everybody has at least heard of the Heisman Trophy, even if they're not really sure what it is- they know it has something to do with college football. As this article points out, not many people realize there's… Continue

I live with a friend that graduated with me from Whitman, along with a couple that graduated in 2003 and their daughter. This friend goes by the nickname of “Fluffy,” and I guess I’ll refer to him as that for the duration of this rant. Anyhoo, on Sunday evenings, our household hosts “TV night,” wherein everyone that wants to partake that we’re friends with can get together at our house and watch the next couple episodes in whatever series we’re on at the time. Last year, my senior year, the two… Continue
In light of your recent acquittal and current imprisonment, as well as your overall history of rather n00bish behavior, we of the "N00bcake of the Week Society" have decided to bestow upon you the equivocally notorious "N00bcake of the Week" award for the week of Friday, October 17th, 2008. We of the Foundation are fully aware of your remarkable football career and your contributions to the film industry. No… Continue
For this week's N00bcake of the Week award, I called dibs and proclaimed O.J. Simpson, in light of his recent conviction. However, it occurred to me very quickly that a number of the Nerdfighters that follow the N00bcake discussion are only vaguely familiar with the older murder trial and didn't even realize he had been put on trial for something else recently. So I decided to do… Continue
