If you stop for lunch and tie the dog to the bumper - don't forget him in the confusion of loading the grandkid in other car.

Vacation was actually a short story in National Lampoon magazine originally - and a darker comedy than movie - and quite funny.

I didn’t know it was a short story first, but I love the film. And Christmas Vacation as well. I was going to post the rant when he got the Jam of the Month for a bonus, The one that ends with “Holy shit, where’s the Tylenol?” But my internet at work gets slow and squirrelly in the afternoon and I couldn’t make it happen.

Anyway, back to Maryland Maryland Maryland. I agree that they hate us. Probably because we have poached some good players from their backyard and because they just are not historically a good team. And, I am being polite with that. They were pissed when they moved a previous game to M&T Stadium last time we cake to town; like its our fault that we buy tickets... I would love to drop a basketball like score on them.

They compete for the ugliest uniforms in the B10, actually the entire NCAA. They have a highly ranked recruiting class, they may be one of the up and comers with the UnderArmor $. They need beaten handily for those three reasons and behaving badly.

33-17 for the nice uniforms.

May not read as well given the movies are burned into our collective psyche and you'll picture Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo but when I first read it cracked me up.

A win on Saturday clinches a 10-win season in consecutive years, only the third time since PSU entered the B1G. The other times were 1993-1994 and 2008-2009.

I guess this'll double up as the Pre and In-game threads.

We're moving the ball. Not a shocker. Gotta punch it in here.
If at first you don't succeed, give up. There is no hope for you.

Nice to see Tommy Stevens Getting a little gravy for the TD. Gotta keep the backup QB happy, I guess.

Considering he's probably good enough to start for most programs, yeah, keep him happy.

Not being snarky, but he's a guy who probably could've started for us this year.

I agree. I am surprised he didn’t transfer when Trace worked out.
