Also 98 posts per sports thread works out to 490 per year. This number, again, is not backed up by any of the actual given post counts.

The one thing this thread makes clear is that we are suffering a dearth of math threads.

Ok, I have three questions for Sidehatch, but anybody is free to chime in.


1. When you see a random adult on the street wearing an official NFL team jersey, how many points do you deduct from your guess of his/her IQ score?

2. Same question as #1 but let's say the jersey in a Redskins jersey.

3. In an effort to establish some kind of bar to judge your answers to #1 and #2, let's say you see a random person on the street wearing neutral clothing but sporting a lip piercing. How many points do you deduct for that person?

Thanks for your time and response(s).

I don't think it makes someone "dumb" it means they don't know how to dress like an adult. (Exemption if they are actually attending/heading to a sporting event.)

My "people wearing jerseys pet peeve" is people who buy jerseys of someone younger than themselves.

Random question for the random thread:

I've got 3 tickets for Reverend Horton Heat/The Adicts at The Howard Theatre on Monday. I'm unable to go and need to sell them. I've tried them on CL to no luck, and can't make it to the venue to sell the day of. Any other options (DC music forums, ticket exchanges, etc) I should look into?

So $29 each, not sold out, an upcoming slot at ShinDig and he plays in the area at least once a year
recipe for a tough sell

FYI..didn't see a CL ad?

I do love the Rev and haven't seen him since those raucous shows at the 930 in the 90's
but Mon is going to be a tough sell for me

Probably have better luck and more fun just lighting them on fire.

Wait, what? I agree with GGW and Rhett is agreeing with me? This is basically the definition of board bipartisanship. I cannot feel me face.

The "younger people jersey" thing kind of goes out the window when you reach a certain age though. I refused to buy a Bryce Harper jersey until I realized that just about everyone on the team is also younger than me or the same age. Maybe I'll be more against buying a "rookie sensation" jersey. Getting old.

I'll give you that the Nats are a tough case since their franchise hasn't been around that long so there isn't a throwback of an older player from when you were a kid to get.

can you help me with this one?  does this mean that i can only wear jerseys of retired players?  99.9% of active players are younger than me, therefore retired players' jerseys are my only choice?

Yes, I'll wear a Howe or an Yzerman sweater to a Wings game. I'm not buying a Dekeyser.

Same thing with Michigan football, I wasn't getting a Denard Robinson #16, I'll buy a Woodson or Harmon throwback.
