I have some sweaters from H&m. Good for the price. Their socks aren't the best quality.

They absolutely don't need any of their receivers other than Harvin. Mid-level receivers are easily replaceable. They absolutely need to do whatever it takes to resign their DB's. Good DB's are virtually irreplaceable. I know this because I'm a Cowboys fan.

Tom Brady is 8-8 in his last 16 playoff games. If only he could remember how he used to put his team on his back!

It's interesting, the more and more important (and prolific) the New England offense has become, the worse the Patriots have done in the playoffs. Brady got outsized credit for the success of teams who's defense were the focal point, and he gets no blame for the struggles of teams that rely more on his success.

Instead of crushing manning, I think instead credit should be given to Seattle. They were, statistically, the best defense against the past of the last ten years. Their defense is incredibly good. They jumped ontop of this team early, and kept causing turnovers. They deserve maximum credit for that.

I thought going into the game that Seattle was the much better team, but because of the Manning Narrative, and the hype about the success of the offense, the public perception was that Denver was better than what they were.

but LOL @ him leaving a "broken" down Wade to play with an older, more broken down, higher paid Kobe. Get serious.

that wasn't the only issue though. THe tone of the article, the reaction to finding out she was a transexual, the use of pronouns are pretty offensive to the trans community. Also, Transvestite, is not the right term. Transvestites are men (often but not exclusively striaght men) who enjoy dressing in women's clothing. Eddie Izzard would be an example of that. A transvestite still identifies their gender as male. Dr V was not a transvestite.


Following the reaction on twitter is fascinating, and the trans and ally community on twitter is not having ANY of Simmons apology. Or Christina Krahl's criticism of it, calling her a token and a sellout. So, the question is to me, what apology is ever good enough? Earlier this month, Ani DiFranco scheduled a writers retreat on a former plantation in Louisiana ( one of the very largest and currently a 300 a night bed and breakfast, where white people can go and pretend the south won or w/e). Black twitter went insane, and she had a torrent of criticism. She cancelled and had a massive apology, and they KILLED her for it, ripping it apart, the apology causing almost as much anger as the Retreat itself. I was fascinated by it, and I wonder.. why the **** does anyone apologize? WHat is the point? People are going to play the apology parcing game, trying to figure out if it's legitimate or not ( And spoiler alert, the people you offended will NEVER think it's legitimate). I just don't understand why anyone apologizes for anything anymore, it seems like a profoundly useless act, but everyone INSISTS people do it, I guess so they can have another round of throwing tomatos at someone.
