i dont base the very essence of my manhood and alpha male status on something i did in a slowpitch softball game 5 years ago when i was a college kid. obviously if what i did was normal or standard, the story wouldn't be worth telling or funny. i tell it as a little self-deprecating humor, but it's not a psycho-analysis of my personality.

Don't think that's right.

I think Killa said any thread without a post in the last 4 weeks.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, and Forum Discussion

Mat said in the mod forum we are allowed to share the following (from Kiera):

Quote:
Redirects will be used as necessary to preserve not only the links on the live forums, but also backlinks on other websites, as well as any bookmarks that you have.

You do not need to bump threads that have links to them in stickies - the links will still work, just take you to the archived thread. If they are linked to in a sticky chances are that you want them migrated to the live forums anyway, so bumping may not have been a waste of time.

Yes we will be adding yet another archive - and it will be listed on the archive page along with the others.

We all joked around, got hammered, had fun, not taking it seriously, but when push came to shove, after losing every game before, we took a pussy out and did some cheap **** to finally win a game, that we never took seriously cuz it was just for fun.

Swing the bat you women, grow a pair.

karak story is solid, it's co-ed softball FFS and they hadn't won a game all year. The fact that they got the win like that just makes it better.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, and Forum Discussion

I like the mock drafts in the nba but everything outside the top ten and "big names" does not interest me. The fact that people continuously change and updated their rankings seems silly. Once after the final four is over, once before the draft...and be done with it.

The nfl has its own prime time show and 10 rounds. Too much drafting.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, and Forum Discussion

Gotta side with Karak here, that seems like a normal thing to do in a drunken college softball game. I know my team mostly played our games for the hilarity too. Others need to quit the e-peen waving

It's too bad this wasn't against wiper's team, because then the story would have ended with Karak taking a softball to the knee.

I'm pretty relaxed, bro, just making an observation. If I took my life very seriously I would do something with it instead of commenting about trolls on the internet.

I'm not really talking about co-ed beer-league softball, really. Certainly has nothing to do with being manly. If you want to take a walk then I think it's lame and borderline angleshooting, but whatever. The thing that struck me was how proud of yourself you were, and clearly still are based on the way you told the story. Congrats, you knew the basic rules of the game and nitted your way to victory! Again, I'm not criticizing because it's unmanly or non-alpha-male but the extent to which you are patting yourself on the back.

Then there's the troll's freeroll. You took the game seriously enough to draw a walk without swinging the bat in co-ed beer-league softball yet your enjoyment was in mocking people who took the game too seriously. I'm fine with trolling, and certainly talking **** in something like intramural softball, but taking the who-so-serious line when you clearly care just as much, if not more, is just stupid and annoying. Why do you think epi was so unpopular?

Interesting that you lead with a bragging tone and then when you got called out you switched to this.

Yeah, you sure don't take posting in SE seriously. Like that time I made a post making fun of you for a joke you made that went over like a lead balloon and you sent me this why-don't-you-like-me PM (my post is quoted at the top):

okay it's gonna get emo in here and possibly with lots of dopezebra.gif tossed around as well

let's not all get mad, let's let karak recount the story of the time before we knew each other on here that i called him down with ace high and he went on super tilt and ran to BBV to tell the story

if you're on the team of the guy drawing a walk in softball you think it's funny. if you're on the opposing team you think it's a dick move. simple as that.

It has nothing to do with Alpha Male and everything to do with you being "that guy" in a co-ed softball league that's crappy enough to have the "double walk" rule.

You'd think that a 1.21 million a year, law school would teach you how to parse such distinctions.

Honestly, if I'm on the opposing team I'd def be annoyed at the time that we lost like that, but I'd also laugh pretty hard at the absurdity of it afterwards, and wouldn't hold it against karak or anything.
