melt - upgrade it,
I remember in the immediate aftermath of the “fight game” in 2004, I was sitting in the end zone in DEATHVALLEYSAKERLINA, not entirely sure what to make of what unfolded.
That’s when, on the other side, a chant erupted — the clemson student section was batting around a giant, inflated representation of a male reproductive organ and started it up:
"WE WANT SPURRIER!
"WE WANT SPURRIER!"
So, wonder how they feel about that now?
And yet another reason is that just playing in a great ballpark apparently isn’t enough for owners these days. The team must also benefit financially from surrounding entertainment, drinking and shopping centers. You know, just in case fans have any money left over after paying for $50 tickets, $10 beers, $6 hot dogs and $30 parking spaces to watch a ballgame.
Lots of truth here.

Actual quote from a guy at Redbox Kiosk B at the Matthews Harris Teeter.
The story behind the quote:
Redbox nicely sent me a free rental code that had to be used this weekend. So, last night, we decided to rent “The Hunger Games,” if for no other reason than to get a refresher ahead of “Catching Fire.”
So, as I’m wont to do, I use the Redbox app to reserve the flick at one of the HT’s near our house.
Now, important, this HT has two kiosks — A and B. My reservation is in B.
I walk up to the kiosks and there is a guy with a serious mullet browsing the selections. Of course, he’s on kiosk B, while A goes blissfully unused.
After about five minutes of standing there, the guy must feel my presence, because he turns to me and the following conversation takes place:
Mullet guy: “Hey man, that one’s not being used.” (NO KIDDING … I didn’t grasp that)
By the way, he went with “The Purge.” So there’s that.
Yep, nothing says “advanced and free thinking” like threatening to sue a school over sending toys and other needs to children overseas.
Look, “Paranormal Activity,” it was a good run. The first one was phenomenal, not to mention a great story ($15,000 budget, $107.9 million take at the box office).
The sequels were kinda meh. In some ways, the canonical story that was established kind of ruined it. That was part of the low-budget appeal of the first (and to an extent second) film(s). Who cared what was causing the ruckus?
I’m breaking up with you, “Paranormal Activity.” I hope we can still be friends.
