So, we have the grand idea that, on sunday, we are going to do a live google hangout during the selection show. If everything goes according to plan, which it ALWAYS does, you will get a live feed of us doing the podcast, and you will be able to ask questions and make comments in the Q&A section on the event page. We sort of have to see how this works. We will also be...

This weekend in Flyer country two bad things happened. First, there was an inbred from Xavier on campus. In typical Xavier fashion the musketeer got cocky. He was the target of numerous “F—K XAVIER” chants. Finally, the Xavier student snapped and smashed a beer bottle over the head of a UD student. Xavier is apparently determined to beat UD this year in whatever sense possible. Secondly, a freshman guy living in Marycrest punched a girl...

Like any school that is 3% African-American, the students at UD love Martin Luther King Jr. Is it because he was a great human who died for a great cause? Nope. Is it because we get Monday off? Yes. That means Thursday through Sunday filled with mass amounts of Natty Light and sloppy college kids. We have heard three confirmed stories and two rumors. I’ll start with the three confirmed stories. A young freshman guy...

Welcome back Flyer fans (and assorted friends and family members). We missed you last week because…well, because we spent two hours talking about Con Air. We only have so much pointless rambling in us in one week. Really, who’d have thought there is an end to our supply of bullshit? Not my high school teachers, I’ll tell you that. • • • • • [dropcap type=”1″]1[/dropcap]Matt: Since we last communicated to you, the Flyboys went 1-1,...

It was very quiet at your favorite Catholic Institution this weekend due to the freezing weather and the fact that all my sources for stories got blackout drunk and do not remember anything. This week I do not have any raunchy female stories or pictures for you. Sorry you old perverts, looks like you will have to resort to drooling over Morgan Miller bikini pictures from Maui. I just have two quick stories from this...

The freshman had a rough time this weekend. There was minimal destruction of dorms, but there was a large quantity of liver destruction. Like a usual weekend, there was plenty of vomiting and sloppy makeouts, also an apparent blowjob received by a kid who pissed his pants. This weekend two kids from the same floor had to be taken to the hospital in the same night for alcohol poisoning. Slow down guys, the warm Natty...

It was a bit of a quiet weekend here at UD, but everyone may have still been recovering from Halloween. Friday night was very quiet, but on Saturday one man was able to inspire a group of college kids to drink like Mel Gibson on Yom Kippur. This man was Jordan Sibert. His game winner set the tone for the night. As one student put it, “What the hell is IPFW? But who cares, Sibert...

Halloween weekend started off on Thursday with an absolute shit show at Tim’s. The nasty weather did put a bit of a damper on things to start, but by the time Friday rolled around the students were ready to drink themselves into oblivion. Friday night commenced with a St. Patrick’s style party on Stonemill. Hundreds of students dressed up took over almost an entire block of the street. People were standing on cars and the...

Expectations for this weekend at UD were not too high because there were supposedly many students heading out of town. Some were leaving for home, while others were in pursuit of Halloween craziness and public sexual activity at Ohio University. Despite the rumors of a quiet weekend, Dayton students were still able to take down cases of Natty light faster than Yancy Gates took down Kenny Frease.

Just a quick note: this post is in two sections. The first part, I wrote last night a couple of hours after the trade happened. I didn’t post it because I wanted to be able to add the second part after I had some time to think and see some more reactions. Some of the stuff I touch on here has been brought up in other places (like Bill Barnwell’s excellent piece on Grantland yesterday)....

Let me start this by telling you that I love baseball. I love watching it on TV, I love watching it live, playing fantasy baseball, reading about it, baseball video games, and I can sit for hours on end just combing over stats. It’s a sickness.  Blackburn has been kind enough give a purpose to my sickness and turn the keys over to me to give everyone something a little less bleary to think about...
