Must be the same elsewhere, but the number of guys I see wearing ferrari crap is incredible. I'll stereotype here and say that the majority seem to be Mediterranean types.

I do enjoy seeing stickers with the ferrari logo on pickup trucks, 15 year old Aztecs and various and sundry other vehicles that were most definitely not hand crafted in Modena.

This and the lack of turn signal usage are New Mexican as green chile. I didn't know that APD even knew to look for such things.

Co-sign. That reminds me. I'll be driving in New Mexico in December, so I ought to make sure my will is updated.

Wise choice. Can honestly say Albuquerque has the worst drivers I've ever seen.

It was a 4 way stop in the VA/377 Medical Group parking lot right outside of base. My guess is someone complained and a local police officer was detailed there to SERVE AND PROTECT.

Still, New Mexico does have the worst drivers ever. If alone for the fact that at least 2 cars can fly through intersections when the light turned red and the commonplace action is for the green light drivers to wait so they don't get T-boned. I was in South Carolina last week and this phenomenon doesn't happen. I've been back and forth to Arizona multiple times and it doesn't happen there either. I've never seen it anywhere but here.

I never attended school at the University of Arizona, but multiple volunteer things with them plus having season tickets to football made me change my allegiance from no team to them. So I bought gear and stuff to support them.

And now I live in Lobo territory, but I'm not switching.

my favorite workout shirts are long sleeve under armour shirts that say Florida State across the front

I wear a Red Sox hat fairly often with matching clothing simply because of the B

my favorite hat is a NASCAR hat of a beer I don't drink

I had to retake my driving test when I lived in NM. The "test" was driving a half block on a secondary street, right turn onto a similar street, then up two alleys (without traffic) back to the DMV. This was when I was ~25 and had let my license expire. I thought it was made easier due to my age, my buddy said he took the exact same test when he got his at 17.

Also, love that you can get 24 insurance so you're insured at the time of the test then let lapse when you're out on the road for real!

my hat obsession may be worse than my shoe obsession, and that's saying something. I once had a goal about 12 years ago of having the hat of every major league team... I think I've got about 17 or so.

A couple things on ESPN's ticker...

1. How much do we think NHL is paying ESPN to note that all of these games are on NHL.tv on the ticker, just as ESPN does when pointing out a sporting event is on one of their affiliated networks, like ESPNU or ABC?

2. It drives me batty that the "score alert" adds the touchdown, then the extra point separately with a two- or three-second gap between (the score will change from 0 to 6, then a couple seconds later to 7). In baseball, for example, they just add the runs all at once, so if someone hits a three-run double, the score jumps from 0 to 3 instead of going 0... 1... 2... 3 as each run "scores". It's not like they're waiting for the extra point to be kicked, either, with a 60-90 second lapse between. I know I'm insane, but I find this maddening. Just add 6, 7, or 8 at one time, whatever the score is.

And they can just ride out their stupid score alert for this season and change it in the offseason, when there is 6+ months for everyone to forget about how stupidly it operates now.

I dunno - doing it that way lets you know whether the score includes the extra point. On a three-run double, all runs score on the same play, so of course they are added at the same time. With a touchdown and extra point, there is some time in between. If there are penalties or injuries, it can be a couple of minutes in between.

Nothing. This is related to the BAM streaming service Disney bought into last year. That company runs MLB.tv and NHL.tv. They are trying to get people to the platform so they are familiar when they launch the multi-channel streaming service later this year (and make a few bucks in the process).

If they add seven points at one time, what else could that mean? It also shifts after showing the change to the score to what the scoring play was, so they can tack on "XP missed" or "Brown, 22-yd TD rec; Bell, 2-pt conversion (run)" or something like that to explain the points.

This was my other thought, but even when this stuff happens, it's always paid by the advertising arm of the company to the broadcasting arm of the same company (unless there is something written into the purchase contract, driving the cash cost of the purchase lower).

I think that asking a wait person "how something is" on the menu prior to ordering is not only reflects a complete lack of understanding in the subjective nature of taste, but is also a symptom of much bigger problem with society. The one where people will do anything to deflect accountability so much so that they'll create a scapegoat before they even know they need one. It's victim complex 101-level shit. It's also probably why we have a sociopath in the oval office.

Anyway, I condemn it wholeheartedly.

When I started the Fast Food Assholes thread, I listed the person who asks "what's good?" as one of them. For a sit-down restaurant, though, I think it's different. Asking for a recommendation can be seen as just an ice-breaker to establish a rapport with the wait person.

If you use it as an excuse to complain "but Kelly said this was good!" if you don't like it, though, then yeah, you're a sociopath.

The worst thing in the world is going to a restaurant and finding out later on that you missed out on some insane menu item because you were too stupid to read or lazy to ask.

Ehhh...no. If you end up not liking it, even if you don't blame the waiter, at some point you're going to end up thinking, "I shouldn't have asked the waiter." At this point, you become a dick.

Oh, that's different. Telling someone what is in a particular dish is just a presentation of facts, and thus the waiter cannot be held accountable. Asking a waiter what tastes better is what I'm talking about. "How's the veal saltimbocca" is not the same as "what's in the veal saltimbocca."

I was reading it as J-Lo knowing what the dish is but just asking for the ingredients that place specifically uses. Like "what do you put in your meatloaf" kinda weird.

Disagree. Like someone else said, only a sociopath would actually do this. If I'm indecisive enough to ask the waiter their opinion on what the most popular dishes are or what their favorites are and I end up not liking their suggestion, that's totally on me. Presumably there were other, safer options on the menu that I know I would have been happy with but I wanted to try something different.

"What goes into the food" implies more than just ingredients.
