One time I was at this random convenience store off a highway in Vermont with my gf and the cashier asked if she was my younger brother and for some reason I said yes. Idk why!! But then he kept probing me about it. He was like “same mother?” and I had to say yes and “same father?” and I had to keep agreeing and he kept being like “I thought so, you look alike” which we don’t EVEN but idk why I can’t just buy tissues without being the awkwardest person alive

Daily SMH Moment (From 11/17/11)

I read an odd story in college football recently. Apparently, Columbia University’s marching band has been suspended for the football team’s season finale after mocking the team in one of its songs. Say what? Yes, you heard me. After losing a game 62-41 to Cornell, the school marching band decided to add a neat little twist to the school’s fight song in order to trash the team. Columbia’s football team is 0-9 this season, and has not won more than five games in a season since 2006.

Well, I guess this is the first I’ve seen something like this before. A marching band turning on its own team? That’s so wrong, yet so funny at the same time. The team is winless on the season, so somebody has to show their disapproval. Me personally, I think it’s pretty creative that the marching band got together to plan this unique little performance. However, sometimes a team can be too creative for its own good. The band has already been banned from some rival universities, and now they’re banned temporarily from their own game. Not that it’ll matter. Looks like this team has no hope.

April 17, 2011 - Still Alive
Raced from 2013 - Still Actively Racing
Thoroughbred Mare - United States

I do not know how she got her name, but I remember the name from my beloved Serendipity book about a pegasus of the same name. I don’t know if she was named in relation to the books.

Flutterby finished ninth in her debut, but won her next start out. She moved to Stakes with a 4th place finish in the 2013 Cassidy Stakes, and won the Cut The Charm Stakes in her final start for the year.

As a three year old she came in second in the Chispiski Stakes and third in the Calder Oaks, but remained winless until October when she won an Allowance Optional Claiming. In her last two races for the year she had two second places in the Millions Distaff Preview Stakes and Golden Beach Handicap.

At four, she finished third in her year’s debut in the Florida Sunshine Millions Distaff Stakes, second in the Sand Dollar Stakes, and won the Sea Lily Handicap. In July, she finished second to Merry Meadow in the G2 Princess Rooney Stakes. She won two more after that in the  Gold Mover Stakes and Added Elegance Stakes. Her final start for 2015 was a third in the  Millions Distaff Preview Stakes.

Flutterby has returned to racing for 2016 with two starts, but they were a 6th place in the  Sunshine Millions Distaff Stakes and a 10th and place in the G2 Inside Information Stakes, won by Stonetastic. It’s not known when her next start may be. Also of note, her owner, breeder and trainer Jerry Bozzo is 95 years old this year! Wow, keep on trucking!

*slowly sinks in chair* alright then I don't think I could one up that on angst. But I do think that it should be when theo sr. Died they gave Aaron wings and Alex is a lil shit to Aaron bring up the "you had to be given wings by your dying wife to get here I got here all on my own" card and that's what causes resentment but yours does have more angst. Unless hamil tons children were winless and he gave his wings to Phillip who gave them back with his last breath. Lmao angst train all aboard

Oh shit. Oh man why did we start this now I’m drowning in all the angst

Earthquakes beat Toronto FC 2-1, snap 7-game winless streak

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Simon Dawkins scored in the 70th minute and the San Jose Earthquakes — playing down two men most of the second half — beat Toronto FC 2-1 on Saturday night to end a seven-game winless streak.

Toronto FC coach Greg Vanney wasn’t happy watching his club drop three points on the road while playing with such an advantage against San Jose the final 40-plus minutes.

“I’m not going to make this bigger than what it is,” said Vanney. “It seems bigger than what it is because it was eight on 10 but at the end of the day it was three points. We should have taken more out of the game, at least one point given the circumstances, but we didn’t.”

Dawkins fired a right-footer from just outside the top of the box to put the Earthquakes up 2-1.

“It was a series of errors, they should never even get a shot off to be fair,” said Vanney. “Probaly four, five errors that led to the ball being in the back of the net. With respect to them, that’s what they needed to happen to get a goal — for us to screw up.”

San Jose (6-6-7) won for the first time since beating Houston 3-1 on May 11.

Quincy Amarikwa put the Earthquakes up 1-0 in the 30th minute but, 12 minutes later, Anibal Godoy received a red card, leaving San Jose a man down.

Justin Morrow capitalized in the 44th, tapping a left-footer into a wide-open net to tie it.

Alberto Quintero drew a red card in the 53rd minute and San Jose played two men down the rest of the way.

Toronto (6-7-6) outshot San Jose 22-8.
