WritingthePine is introducing a new game we like to call: Did Jerry Sandusky Really Say That? Here’s the quote: It was just us in the whole place and we were just going room to room – just bouncing and flipping all over the place, hitting each other with balls, sweating, our shirts filthy. We were just dirty, stinky boys, you know? So did Jerry Sandusky say that as he left the courthouse in Bellefonte, PA? (See below for answer) … … →
In the latest, inaugural edition of the Harp Break Kid, watch Washington Nationals phenom Bryce Harper blast a HR off the Blackberry Bold sign in Toronto. Holy shit.
My favorite re-occuring Grantland piece has always been Reader’s Revenge, which started off as an addendum to “About Last Weekend”, (a feature that used to exist in WritingthePine 1.0 before the “Great Server Crash of 2012.”) Similar to Deadspin’s “DHF” or Drunken Hookup Failure, but with a wider range of topics, readers participated by contributing great, embarrassing stories that may or may not have been embellished, exaggerated, or just plain fabricated. However, since the last piece on 5/21/2012, there hasn’t … →
The new NCAA Football 13 demo was released for the XBOX360 today. After what felt like a long wait (1.98GB), the game was finally ready to be played. Here are some thoughts in bullet point style. (“The Major likes bullet points…”) The demo didn’t include the opening cutscene. I was mildly disappointed by that. I usually watch the cutscene once in the beginning and there-after mash on the X button as if my life depended on it. I’m hoping they … →
Be still my heart. Just watch: The Wire: The Musical with Michael Kenneth Williams from Michael Kenneth Williams Epic. I know, I know. Back to back Omar/Wire posts. But the TIMING IS IMPECCABLE. I will now go back and watch it for the 4th time.
While watching the “Game of Thrones” season two finale, I couldn’t help but notice the ultimate decision HBO decided to make with regards to Tyrion’s battlefield injury. According to the books of George Martin, the injury was to leave Tyrion horribly scarred and disfigured, even removing his nose. When Shae revealed the injury, the only thought I had was: “He looks like Omar now.” OMG HBO OMAR-IZED Peter Dinklage. (Courtesy of http://thegryllus.deviantart.com/) Coincidence? Oh indeed. But, if it was intentional, … →
Today, we introduce a new feature: Sundays with Liam. Courtesy of Ugo.com In this new feature, we will spend parts of certain Sundays with our favorite Irish actor, Liam John Neeson. Previously nominated for an Oscar, fittingly for his portrayal of an Oskar, Mr. Neeson is clearly talented, and if you’ve watched his many movies, thoroughly entertaining. Inspired by the movie, “Taken,” which is quite possibly one of our favorite movies of all-time, we will from time to time, spend … →
(Note: This author’s rant is drawn from his experience living with three other roommates.) This used to be food. I think. No, this post isn’t about the your second grade science project where you made a volcano. Or the one in third grade where you grew an onion. (Hey now. We’re not here to judge the quality of my childhood science projects.) But rather, it’s what my roommates and I like to call that tupperware container you’ve left in the … →
