Take them to the best shoe repair place you can find, they should be able to make that adjusment.

There's nothing in sports like a college town abuzz for a really, really big game. I am genuinely jealous. Gig 'em!

Hey girrrrrl. I'm going to Bergdorfs later to stalk some Prada shoes with a friend, I thought you'd appreciate that.

You've set up some nice straw men for yourself there. Do you, like, know any college football fans? Or have you just made up some in your head? Because I know a ton of them, and it's the rare exception to find one who doesn't think the players deserve significant insurance, at the very least. Don't blame that shit on the fans, blame it on the NCAA, which is a pack of clowns if I've ever seen one. Most college sports fans hate the NCAA. And how does any of this differ between football and basktball?

College sports fans are like any other sports fans. Yes, we appreciate tradition and history and whatever else, but we also appreciate winning football games, attracting the best players and keeping them around for their full eligibility. If you think we'd forgo player benefits, which would affect all those things positively, for the sake of tradition, you are just wrong. Your outside view of college football fans is not based on the reality of college football fans. There are probably plenty of reasons for that, based on other comments I've seen you make here, but our chosen justification is just wrong.

People who think fandom follows some kind of linear thought process are adorable.

Baseball is full of steroids. The NFL still wants to pretend brain damage is a figment of people's imagination. But yeah, this jackass signing autographs is the most scandalous thing in American sports. Sure.

College football is just as flawed as any other spectator sport in America, but the reason it bothers you in particular is because you don't have a rooting interest. Don't pretend it's some high-minded thing going on. I don't think baseball is worth watching, but I'm not going to spend my free time trying to explain my reasoning to a lifelong Red Sox diehard or feeling smug because I'm disinterested in something that brings them joy. I just don't watch baseball.

I'm in favor of paying players, for what it's worth. I got the same free education that AJ Green got, but he made a lot more money for the school than I ever will. At least pay them like the kids who work in the dining hall.

I don't know what kind of special snowflake airports you spend your time in if Atlanta's one of the shitty ones. It has at least one fine dining restaurant in it, for fuck's sake.

I fly through LaGuardia regularly. I know hell.

Nope, I just type it in. I never bookmark anything.
