brb, writing my new horror screenplay Poultrygeist
My guess is she was ready to spill the beans on why chickens cross the road, and this was a message to the others
Oh nothin', just walking by a chicken foot in the road with painted toenails, how about you
I really think this kind of system would more likely un-ruin college basketball than ruin college football.
Players would still get a 5 year full ride at the college, same as now, they just aren't required to use it till later. twitter.com/thomasa56/stat…
You could have a 5 year up-or-out system; no academic requirements at all, just focus on FB, get paid, and you're free to transfer at will. One year of post-FB tuition full ride for every year played. If ended by injury, you get immediate 5 year full ride.
I am also OK with universities licensing their stadiums, trademarks, etc, to an openly professional NFL development league that has no pretense that players are actual students, just that they will get a free scholarship after their playing days are over.
That said, I also support college athletes having to meet the same entrance requirements as every other student at their colleges. Put their applications in the same stack as everybody else, and athletic achievements don't count
at DePaul my son had a couple of friends on the basketball pep band who were paid like $30 or something per game to play, which would have been NCAA probation if it had gone to the actual basketball players. That is insane.
I am absolutely in favor of college athletes making as much money from it as they can, openly, and reported to the IRS. twitter.com/mideberry/stat…
In a shock to absolutely no one, this whole thing is being brokered by ESPN twitter.com/barstoolsports…

You have your 1960-70s space exploration heroes, I have mine
It's not too late to enlist in the Iowahawk Bikini Ninja Assassin Force #IHBNAF twitter.com/sarahbellumd/s…
Forget the jet packs and flying cars, I'm still waiting for my secret moonbase protected by an invincible army of bikini models
I think this calls for a little Raquel Welch space girl dance in Mexico

Better Supervillain Home & Garden
60s-70s Italian industrial design appreciation thread. Them boys really knew how to trick out a supervillain lair
After a bit of digging I've discovered there are a few replicas floating around, but the original (which I've seen up close) sold in 2011 for ~$1 million. Even a replica is serious money.
I can't believe that put that car on a $70/day rental trailer from Home Depot, when he could have saved $20 at TSC or a tow dolly from U-Haul
1970 Bertone Lancia Stratos HF Zero on a... Home Depot rental trailer? (ht @TheMightyLo) #DavesCarIDService twitter.com/AnneBonny69/st…
Gotta clock out for the day now. Stay cool, and as always, Happy Motoring!
I've seen 1964 Chevy Impala convertibles turned into lowriders before, but this is a bit extreme. twitter.com/andrewtlloyd/s…
Nothing more romantic than canoodling in silhouette in front of a 1938 Cadillac Fleetwood in the rain. twitter.com/rpalme01/statu…
Pickup? Ma'am, that is a 1951 Studebaker Starlight coupe. twitter.com/CatLovetro/sta…
I think it's a 55 Chevy Bel Air convertible. twitter.com/BJordanLogue/s…
1966 Ford Galaxie with a pretty passive-aggressive vanity plate. twitter.com/doggy_ruby/sta…
1967 Chevy Chevelle SS 396, in the underrated butternut yellow paint code. twitter.com/FrankyMacDonal…
hmmmmm. Everything seems to point to 1939 LaSalle sedan, but with modified headlights. twitter.com/SunDevilMemes/…
Gotta say this off the beaten path for a hot rod. 1931 Ford Tudor, chopped ~3-4", NASCAR style steelies, and engine seems to be some sort of modern OHC 4 banger. twitter.com/FredBoness/sta…
1947 or so Jaguar Mk IV Drophead Coupe. twitter.com/The_PMix/statu…
(via several readers) 1955 Plymouth Belvedere missing front fender emblem. First year for a Plymouth V8 (see hood emblem), a not-quite hemi "poly head." twitter.com/graceisforyou/…
circa 1952 Willys Jeep pickup hiding in the weeds. twitter.com/JimWilke/statu…
That's it for today's family pics (but please keep em coming). Now for the street & wilderness find portion of our program: 1941 Dodge Custom Royal sedan, in WW2 staff car olive drab paint. twitter.com/TheSmokingYeti…
Truck is a well worn 1941-47 Dodge, and I believe the fender was once on a 1968-69 Chevy Impala. twitter.com/mrobbins66/sta…
had to lighten that one up a bit for a better view.
These newlyweds are off to Niagara Falls in a 1952 Studebaker Land Cruiser (yep, Studebaker had that trademark long before Toyota). twitter.com/Mark13Eaton/st…
Let me clue you in that the car is a 1946-48 Oldsmobile Dynamic, and Grandpa's pencil mustache is fantastic. twitter.com/RumfoordNiles/…
You would be correct, as this old timey Oregon pioneer's Conestoga wagon is a 1928-29 Ford Model AA truck underneath. twitter.com/RonaldBFrankli…
Ol' One-Eye Tommy Milton is inside first row, #6, in a Durant-Miller Champ Car. Note that the track was paved with wooden planks. You had to have cast iron, uh, fortitude to race 98 mph on that surface. twitter.com/100YearsAgoLiv…
Welcome to Fox News 1929... well, 20th Century Fox Movietone News anyway. The prehistoric photojournalists here are off to capture some newfangled talkie newsreel footage in a 1929 Dodge delivery. twitter.com/HazeDoran/stat…
*As I have discussed before, pre 1908 (and the Ford Model T) cars were mostly a rich man's toy, and average Joes would actually pay for a souvenir photo of themselves sitting in one. I've gotten such photos before, usually from county fairs and such.
Sad tale from a previous pandemic. Gramps & Great Gramps are in a 1906ish Autocar Model X runabout, and certainly a photographer's studio prop. twitter.com/2_wheels/statu…
*by modern, I mean "shoebox" style integrated fenders, instead of the fat pontoon fenders of prewar cars: here's a 46 v 47 Stude for comparison.
