Very Quick Update on the Last Post

When I was talking about the UMD basketball riots, I was under the impression that they were fairly serious. What most concerned me were the reports that there was a female student who had "life-threatening" injuries and was in "critical condition" after getting hit by a car on Route 1. That was according to The Washington Post.

Today's Post briefly mentioned that the injured student suffered a broken ankle.

Score another one for high-quality Washington journalism! Yeeeeee-haw!

That still doesn't make it any more acceptable to light things on fire or try to tip busses. Nor does it make it more acceptable to watch women's basketball. Fundamentals, schmundamentals. If I wanted to watch inferior athletes play basketball, I would watch a middle school pick-up game.

  5. Yeah. I've gotta say. Women's basketball pretty much rocks. But then again, I'm from the midwest, where women's basketball (and women!) is bigger than men's. (Except for those idiots in Indiana.)

  6. I'm not saying it is bigger or better than mens, it isn't(I think that Midwest love is because they NEVER win in Mens). That said it is still entertaining. What other sport would you watch Tuesday night, game 2 of 160 of baseball? no thanks...

  7. Re female basketball players handing me ass: Duh. I'm a 30% free throw shooter. I am terrible at basketball. Your point?

    Re Game 2 of 162 games of baseball: You are not winning any points by mocking baseball. I would watch a pre-season game over women's basketball

  8. That's cool, I don't need to win points. If you would rather watch a meaningless game of "baseball" played by juiced up, overpaid, morons, who happen to play in a league that is the most uncompetitive of all of professional sports that's your own prerogative. I played a ton of baseball in my life and a league that is excited the mean score of a game is 7-5 is garbage. Do you like math, how does this equation suit you? No revenue sharing + no salary cap + no steroid policy + screwing DC for an extra couple of million dollars + over expansion = professional wrestling or the NHL(as far as being an actual worthwhile sports league is concerned).

  9. DC does shut down early and I don't get it either excpet that maybe because of the crappy transportation here, the service workers need to leave work by 8pm to make the two hour commute into BFE Maryland and Virginia more bearable.

    I've seen conveinance stores close at 8pm!!!! WTF? I have to bust ass when I get off of work at 6pm just to make it to the dry cleaners before the lock the doors for the night.

    No delis worth speaking of...perhaps excluding a few. GW deli is decent.

    No pizzarias worth shit. Don't talk to me about those shit shops in Adams Morgan that serve those absurd slices. That doesn't make them taste better.

    All you have are Chinese food buffets and potbellys where you have a 4 dollar sandwich that makes you feel like you just ate a morsel. These close at 7 pm.

    And don't tell me Jaleo is good. It sucks.

    by the way, five guys is pretty good. The fucking french fries though are different in each different 5 guys, which are now practically on every corner.

    Chipotle, aka Mexican McDonalds, is decent as well.

  15. Alright, I love baseball... but people who take it too seriously (by reading baseball stories on the business page) crack me up. I enjoy baseball because it's a good excuse to socialize and people-watch while drinking. Every once in a while some dude will do something to give you an excuse to yell w/ thousands of others.

    In Seattle last summer, the Mariners were a dozen games or more out of first place and when they went into extra innings tied 3-3 with Minnesota, the stadium emptied as fans repaired to nearby bars to watch via television.

    Seattle, they say, is a baseball town.

  16. That girl is the sister of a friend and she did more than hurt her ankle.

    What section of DC are you in? Gallery Place, Dupont Circle, Georgetown, Adam's Morgan, and a few other places do not close that early. I assume that places close early because their isn't enough business in areas that are mainly used by businesses to warrant staying open later than a few hours after the work day is over.

  17. Chef Geoff's is just that...Chef Shits. If you eat there, you have about a 90% chance of getting sick afterwards. I know this because I work in the building above the place and have tried many of their dishes. And it isn't just me, everyone in my office agrees. They should be shut down!

    And by the way, Five Guys is not "pretty good". They are fucking great! This is not a matter of opinion. Anyone who disagrees is sent by the devil to spread their words of hate. And the fries are not different at all the locations. That is another stupid statement by a worker of the devil. I have been to about 6 Five Guys and the fries at each place are all great.

    SO YOU CAN ALL EAT MY SHIT AND ENJOY IT!

  18. As a pseudo-Wolverine (meaning that I was a grad student there and therefore did not feel quite as much peer pressure to use body paint), I find it amusing that any Maryland (in my mind, "the UM wannabe") students want to be on the level of Michigan State with the little ol' riot. It's quaint, actually.

  19. Its UMD moron. No one calls it UM.

  20. Um Ok, so what is up with people on Metro not talking to one another??

  21. What do you want people to say? I'm always alarmed whenever people try to talk to me on the train, except when an attractive young lady tries to chat me up, which happened recently.

    I used to be so "inebriated" in the morning that I'd try to avoid any conversation until noon... Maybe that's what other people are like here.

  22. I worked at Chef Geoff's, and, uh, let's just say, don't each brunch there.

  23. Anonymous,

    Wait. Why? A former roommate of mine works at Chef Geoff's and she hasn't given me any horror stories.

  24. Brunch is always a bad deal. If you want leftovers order brunch.
