    How about I change my briefs?

    It's times like these that make me wish I was a bear and could hybernate from November to April. I would only wake up to watch some bowl games and maybe the Super Bowl. Actually I would probably come out of my cave in March to watch college basketball.

    Tagline suggestion (in honor of our Reverend midfielder):
    DC United, God's Team

    Maybe this can be the offseason random yada yada yada thread. No rumors, no news, no facts, just stuff.

    Any tagline needs a reference to the kid. Something creative that involves Adu and, unlike the argument with Nowak, won't become old news quickly.

    That sir, is the reaction I was looking for. Thank you. :D

    BTW, my wife doesn't need the FU Ref chant to yell that at me. ;)

    Hey, is your location Old Dominion the school, or Old Dominion the brew-pub?

    I think the current one is fine, but if you want to change it, somebody with more time than I, should go rooting through the dialogue of the star wars movies and pull some clever line out of context about "the chosen one" or something.

    Like, Qui Gon's "promise me you'll train the boy..."
    or
    maybe yoda and mace in "according the prophecy he is the chosen one--- a prophecy that misread could have been"

    If you look I'm sure there's a perfect one in there.

    Well, if the Adu to Jersey trade (that's basically been ruled out) were to have happened there's always ""You were the Chosen One!! You were supposed to destroy the MetroDonkeys, not join them!!"

    What he meant to say was:
    no ;)
    The State

    And Dave, you're American, it's an apartment :rolleyes:

    I will only support a tagline change if it's
    We've got Knave

    Thanks, FB.

    However, you didn't account for his possible meaning that he wished his car would have a flat tire at the brew-pub, thus forcing him to pause and have a drink. Or two.

    You're not going to stop all BS people using all UK English words (no matter how out of place) are you? Things like 'pitch', 'kit', 'sh1te', 'arse'...

    Hahaha, I did consider the possiblity of Dave wanting to be stuck at the brew-pub, but just can't imagine him excited about a flat tire, no matter how hard I try. Being a union man, I'm sure changing tires is not in his contract and he would have called me to come change it anyway :)
    Soccer-related "English" words I tend to let slide, but when guys like me and Dave, who aren't exactly suave worldly gentleman (frankly, we'd be more at home in a trailer park in Appalachia than the French Riviera) use UK words, well, I have to say something :D

    Fair enough. But where does "you'ns" land me? Intensive care or Rite-Aid for a band-aid?

    And after that provocation, I think you should sell tickets to the mikedett beatdown™ :D

    Lucy and Snoopy are having a fight!

    [​IMG]

    Sort of... :p

    Hmm... Maybe if I turn "Safe Search" off, I can get a picture of Lucy and Snoopy actually fighting...



    Uh, tagline? We don't need no stinkin' tagline.







    Y'all. **ducks**

    I love it when threads that are deserving of it get highjacked.

    By the way, if you haven't tried Old Dominion's brew pub you really should. Many, many beers on tap and very good pub food.

    And no, I don't work for them.

    One other thing...if they can call it a brew pub, why can't Dave use 'flat'?

    Really...the picture they use on their site doesn't suggest a US envornment, does it? [​IMG]
    And why doesn't the angle of the beer's surface match the angle of the pint glass?

    Nothing specifically English anymore about 'brew pub'.

    You can go to Williamsburg and have your pick of public houses.

    Or publick houses, if you prefer.

    Beer with real body doesn't slosh around in a glass. It takes its time to level out.

    Think molasses on a cold day...
