This is beautiful, Jessi. Could you possibly post a video of the whole last play-call, not just the reaction shot? War Eagle!

I'm guessing they weren't filming during the play or they would have posted it.  Still awesome to see though.

Christopher Buckley: Yes, everything he said was brilliant. It was a feast of reason and a flow of soul, and, if the author of “God Is Not Great” did not himself believe in the concept of soul, he sure had one, and it was a great soul. Via Roger Ebert, this quote from Hitch: “Being a writer is what I am, rather than what I do.” ★

Classics from fortune(6):


Gerrold's Laws of Infernal Dynamics:
(1) An object in motion will always be headed in the wrong direction.
(2) An object at rest will always be in the wrong place.
(3) The energy required to change either one of these states
will always be more than you wish to expend, but never so
much as to make the task totally impossible.

Classics from Usenet (crossposted to rec.humor.funny):

From: worrall@scapino.ssec.wisc.edu(Thomas Worrall)
Newsgroups: rec.pets.dogs
Subject: Re: QUESTION: DO DOGS REALLY "LOVE" US?

When this thread came up a while back I decided to do the sensible thing
and just ask. So when I got home I asked my dogs, do you love me?
And they said YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES!

Then I asked, do you want a cookie?
And they said YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES!

Then I asked, do you favor a free market laissez-faire, or a planned economy?
And they said YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES!

In summary, we have learned that
1. my dogs do indeed LOVE me.
2. they WANT a cookie.
3. they have not developed a clear economic philosophy.

Hope that helps.

Rob Schmitz, reporting for American Public Media Marketplace: Cathy Lee, Daisey’s translator in Shenzhen, was with Daisey at this meeting in Shenzhen. I met her in the exact place she took Daisey — the gates of Foxconn. So I asked her: “Did you meet people who fit this description?” “No,” she said. “So there was nobody who said they were poisoned by hexane?” I continued. Lee’s answer was the same: “No. Nobody mentioned the Hexane.” I pressed...

Wonderful profile of Teller (of Penn and Teller fame), and his The Red Ball trick, by Richard Abowitz for Las Vegas Weekly, back in 2008: Penn amended Teller’s suggested explanation, offering “Now, here’s a trick that’s done with a piece of thread” in its place. Suddenly Penn was happy and excited. There was an idea. “That’s all,” Teller remembers Penn saying, “Just give them that much. That gives them so much and puts them on our side. Nobody e...
