A Game Day Tradition

If you watch ESPN’s College Game Day, you likely already know about the tradition where Washington State has someone fly their flag each week – no matter where the show is broadcasting from.

Today they honored the 200th consecutive show with the flag.  It’s turned in to quite a process to keep up the streak.  Enjoy the report by Tom Rinaldi.


Well done.

For the Love of Nachos

Let there be peace on Earth, and let it begin with…nachos?

Cubs and Cardinals fans are big rivals…like BIG rivals.  So imagine the tension last night when the two rivals met, both chasing playoff berths.

Then a foul ball (but potentially catchable), the Cubs’ Addison Russell rushing to catch it near the stands, and splat – he didn’t catch the ball and a Cards fan lost his nachos.

But it didn’t end there, and I’ll let Deadspin take it from here.

If you are looking for love, try to find someone who looks at you like this dude looks at nachos.

Well played Cubs, Cards and NachoMan.  Well played.  Perhaps we should send Addison Russell and NachoMan to North Korea?

So many serious and upsetting posts!  I don’t want to be a Debbie Downer, so here’s something fun:

Art at Work – It’s a Sticky Situation

I love, love, love this!

Get out your sticky notes and get creative.

Who doesn’t love old school, pixelated video game characters and a good old-fashioned competition between business?

 DNA Info provides the deets and shows pictures of a friendly rivalry going on in Chicago.

Back in the day, arcade games cost a quarter, and if you were really good, you could clear a couple levels and get a 15 second Pac-Man cartoon. (Remember when Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man got married? ::swoon::) But this article here, is good clean fun for free, no skill required.

HEARTILY ENDORSED!!

Do You Remember?

Look at the calendar, then click on this link and sing/dance along.

“Do you remember the
21st night of September?
Love was changing the minds of pretenders
While chasing the clouds away”

Football Follies

Fall weekends mean lots of football. And not all the great plays happen in the NFL.

Check out Division III Texas Lutheran and a field goal they attempted yesterday – Deadspin has the video and the buzzkill.

So what if it isn’t legal…in my mind, the play scored 3 points just for awesomeness.

Just For Fun

It’s football Saturday, and after the past week of news, we need some happy vibes!

Enter the Boise State dog, who retrieves the tee after every kickoff. Video of this wonder dog is embedded in this story.

Boise State, your blue field is kinda weird, but the dog trick is pretty cool. Good job, Broncos!

Now let’s hope the NCAA doesn’t figure out some obscure rule to ruin this tradition, too.

Do You See What I See?

From super funny, former Obama speechwriter Jon Lovett, the following observation today on Twitter:

“Half of all boxing photos look like gay weddings”

I agree, and this particular wedding is apparently being officiated by Rev. Oscar De La Hoya.

Edited to add another view featuring the unusual bridesmaid dresses… LOL

(Canelo vs. GGG tonight)

If you are on Twitter, Jon Lovett is a great follow: @jonlovett

Math Symbol Knowledge, Mind Blown

So maybe you all knew about this since elementary school, but I sure didn’t (or somehow lost the brain cell which learned this along the way).

Per Twitter this week, I learned the division symbol is just a simple fraction. Like the dot on the top is to signify the numerator and the dot on the bottom stands in for the denominator. Think about it 4/2 = 2 and 4 divided by 2 = 2.

MIND BLOWN!

Here’s a link to show I wasn’t the only one who felt this was life-changing knowledge.

Sometimes it’s the little things which make me smile, but what I want to know is WHAT OTHER SECRETS ARE MATH TEACHERS KEEPING FROM US?

Rock on, division sign (simplified fraction), rock on.
