Things You See On Twitter (Non-political)

Yeah, we'll keep this one politics free. Shoot up a warning if it's NSFW though.  :thumbsup:


I agree with this. Hockey, fine...curling, I'd love to try. Sure I've snowboarded before but nothing like they do. But I dunno, flying down an icy trail in excess of 70mph crotch first with very little protection just doesn't seem like my idea of a fun time to me.

Thought about turning this into a Top 5 topic, but couldn't think of 5 worthy enough to do, so for now...


Mine is that Michigan would've easily beaten Nebraska in a 1997 National Championship game. Best defense led by Heisman Trophy winner Charles Woodson and a month to prepare for it would've shut that option BS down. 27-6 Final.

The 1993 Houston Oilers should have been in the Super Bowl.
Started the season 1-4. That one win? Over KC, 30-0.
Finished 12-4. First round bye, faced KC in divisional round at home, again, and lost 28-20.
If anyone knows of a more dysfunctional team in the history of the league, Id love to hear about it. Some highlights:
-8 pro Bowl selections, 2 OL, 2 DL, 2 WR, QB, P
-Buddy Ryan improves D but creates divisive turmoil and throws a feeble marshmallow punch at OC Kevin Gilbride on TV during playoff game v KC.
-Jeff Alm commits suicide
-Babygate
-Gay players make the news (not identified)
-HC Jack Pardee perceived as soft, allowing Ryan to take control and ruin the team.
-Still looming was the 41-38 OT loss to Buffalo the previous playoff season (the comeback)
-It would be 2012 before Houston witnessed another playoff game.

This would make Texan natives collective heads explode, but I was a fan of Houston and Dallas and was looking forward to an all Texas Super Bowl.
At least I got one wish.

The 1998 Minnesota Vikings would have beaten the Denver Broncos had they made it to the Super Bowl.

Fucking Gary Anderson.

Blame Anderson all you want, but the Vikes pulled a Gilbride and hence fumbled right before half allowing Atlanta to score, then were too gun shy after that and ended up downing it to run out the clock instead of trying to win the game. Failed to score on at least one overtime possession, so yea, blame Anderson, but throw Green and Cunningham in there too.

My most biased sports opinion:

Blame Gary Anderson. Dude didn't miss a field goal all year and chokes when the season is on the line.

that Same KC team(early to mid 90's KC) choked away a few superbowl appearances I think.  SHottenhiemer had some good teams that choked.

Schottenheimer has to be one of the best regular season coaches, right? I miss that man. He was the Norv Turner of Marty Schottenheimers.

Mine is Cam Newton wins the SEC in 2010 with Mullen and Miss State if Auburn does not pay his family. Dude committed to Auburn without ever stepping foot on campus. and a week earlier was cheering state on in the egg bowl. If the NCAA gives the same Immunity to Mullen as it did to Fulmer in 2001, Auburn is on probation, Miss State wins the SEC that year and Gus is no better than a Division 2 head coach.
