It was a few car lengths. No one was moving in front of me from the middle lane. I wasn't slowing him down. Shame on me for taking revenge on him later on but I was definitely doing everything...

Yes, I was blocking an entire three-lane freeway by myself. Busted!

No, I already owned up to that part. That was after several minutes of hard tailgating when I was just going with the flow in heavy traffic. I wasn't slowing him down anymore than anyone else prior...

I called the cops when, exactly? You're making the Corolla guy look quite reasonable by comparison with this post.

Putting that aside, there is plenty of valid criticism elsewhere in the thread...

He wasn't "faster traffic" -- we were all going the same speed in heavy traffic. If you're so concerned about the law, how about the law against tailgating?

So JUICE, MAX, and Baby Bye Bye would have all meekly moved over to the center lane at the first safe opportunity. I just want to get it on the record.

But it's almost irresistible. Denying him the one thing he clearly wants so desperately. Being a jerk to a jerk. But I guess people like that don't know when to turn it off. I'm amazed that...

Yes, and by miraculous luck the receiver was not killed, did not suffer a career-ending injury or even experience temporary minor discomfort.

Clearly that could break your neck all by itself. A horsecollar injury depends more on stuff that happens afterwards rather than just the fact of someone pulling on your upper back.

I'm pretty emotionally detached about it since football isn't a big deal for me. But most horsecollar tackles (like most other tackles) seem pretty innocuous to me. People have been hurt with...

So is it a horsecollar thing or is it a Roy Williams thing? It would be odd and wrong to target a particular player through a rule change. If lots of players were breaking legs in this way that...

Horsecollar tackle

This seems like a stupid thing to penalize. I don't follow football that closely so I don't know the full story behind it but I think it must be somewhat new. It doesn't seem like a particularly...

One of my son's groups had an outing to a hockey game yesterday. I don't care much for hockey but I sort of had to attend and it was free anyway. It was the level right below the NHL, I'm pretty...
