I don't check the football form every day during the offseason, so I'm just stumbling onto this now.....but I have to sadly admit, I absolutely love this thread! I just read all 18 pages; this has been message board porn to me.

-Chairleg in the eye socket story from ChinaGopher
-Kelly Leaks faking his own death
-Detlaf & the Stein (BTW, I knew that one was fun from the beginning, when Detlef ended one of his first posts with "P.S.: Happy hour is 4 till 7")
-007 getting his glasses & lunch money taken from him by O'Doyle Brooks...along with all the narcotics discussion from Tony Montana.

This place is really the gift that keeps on giving, the whole year!

It really is a great thread. It will be an official part of Gopherhole canon.

This thread is a good example of why you should take your dog for a long walk before having company over. Our ~two months without football has left us all feral and antsy and when we are left to our own devices, we have threads like this. They are beautiful and tragic.

The Shaka saga on the basketball side was very fun as well. But couldn't agree more, threads like this are why I'm in the commenting on/reading message boards business.

Another thing I learned on this thread is I would like to tailgate and attend road games with Writer Goph.

I haven't dome shrooms in nearly 30 years but I am thinking of a relapse. It might be like the first time all over again.

If Writergoph can convince his 70 year old mother to do shrooms, I can convince my 50 year old wife (we'll see on that one).

Yes. Anyone who doesn’t enjoy this thread is simply expecting too much from GH. This is a prize.

I am kind of surprised posts weren't deleted and everyone scolded.

Bottom line, most of us will never meet in real life, so all we have to go on is what people post here. I don't like to make public statements about another poster's credibility - or lack thereof.

I have no reason to think 007 is deliberately lying. Assuming he is who he says he is, he is giving his account of what happened - as he remembers it. and that's the thing - everyone involved in a situation may see things a little differently. Put 10 people in a room, and you will get 10 different versions of what happened. That does not mean that one people is "lying" and another is telling the "truth." It just means they are recounting the events as they remember. And memory can be very fallible.

speaking of mushrooms, I knew a guy who liked to drop shrooms and listen to Jim Morrison......but that is another story.

Doming shrooms? You know how to party.

Finally someone agreeing, thank you. Some players that aren't here any more were big into banned substances, (K. Handy-Holly, D. Croft, V. Viramontes and others).
You kind of sound like you were too scared to enjoy college.... Anyway doesn't the saying go something like snitches get stitches... You should probably watch what you whine about on here since you have identified yourself.

LOL to #2gopher back on page 13 saying this wasn't entertaining and he was out. This is the funniest thing on GH in a while.

Just wanted to give this thread one more bump before the Jerry Kill radio show thread takes over GH for the next few weeks.

In an effort to keep this going....here's another tangent. Who misses Faux Pelini and what was your favorite tweet?

When Faux was going over terms of the traveling trophy. I miss that bit.

The play-by-play from the airport during a coaching search (was it the Kill hire?) was pretty memorable too.

Can't remember the poster who was hanging out at the Humphrey Terminal waiting on charter flights. But it was hilarious.

I don't recall it was Humphrey, but I'm pretty sure that was dpodoll. He's the poster that most posters here would like to see go away (per John Galt in the Kill/Fleck thread).

With an airport that small, can't you just get off the jet and get directly into a car? Doesn't seem like there's a terminal to wait out in? Or did he have binoculars?
