    I don't get the sports talk radio evergreen "team x didn't deserve to win the game; they only won because team y made costly mistakes." Yes, that is the nature of a sporting competition. One team will play better than the other, which is just to say that one team will play worse than the other. The Ravens could have tied up the game and eventually won if Cundiff makes the routine field goal. But would the Ravens not have deserved the win on the grounds that Brady made uncharacteristically bad throws? Is a win in baseball only legitimate if the opposing pitcher throws a perfect game?

    And the related evergreen: team x's championship is not fully satisfying because they played a flawed team in the Finals/World Series/Super Bowl/etc. The evidence that the other team was flawed is that they lost.

    In the case of soccer it can happen though. One team can run all over the other without being able to score, and then in stoppage time the ref rewards a retarded penalty to the other team which they converted.

    I do not understand how a respiratory therapist could possibly smoke. It has always seemed to me the majority of them do.

    It will only be interesting if the person in question was a cannibal but Papua New Guinea is not great for broadband yet.

    I really hate when people post photos of their plates when eating out.

    If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of roof reef?
    If the plural of I is we, the plural of coffee should be tea!

    Yes. This drives me nuts. There's a reason we keep score.

    Years ago I went to see Weezer. A guy named Dashboard Confessional opened. It was gay, but besides that there were these young teeny-boppers in front of me standing screaming and carrying on for this Dashboard guy. The guy next to me poked them and was like, "If I buy you both beers will you sit down and shut the fuck up?" They did, with beers in hand. It was awesome.
