Penn State vs. UCF Season Opener In Ireland At Risk Due To A Volcanic Eruption

ORLANDO, Fla. — UCF’s season opener in Ireland next week against Penn State may be in peril because of a possible volcanic eruption in Iceland.

Iceland’s Civil Protection Department said Wednesday that about 500 people were evacuated from the highlands part of the Vatnajokull glacier. The action was taken as a precaution following thousands of small earthquakes recently near Bardarbunga, a sub-glacial stratovolcano under the glacier.

UCF departs for Ireland Aug. 26 for its Aug. 30 game. Athletics spokesman Andy Seeley said school officials are monitoring the situation.

Iceland is separated from Ireland by the Atlantic Ocean and about 900 miles, but a volcanic eruption in Iceland could produce volcanic ash and potentially affect flights to Europe. More than 100,000 flights were cancelled following the 2010 eruption of the Eyjafjallajokul volcano.

 

 

Just your classic setback to a college football season opener, see something like this happen every year.  Problems with the turf, leaks in the roof, a nearby volcano about to erupt and shower you with liquid hot magma.   You hope it doesn’t happen to you but it always seems to.

Man Penn State really just cannot get out of this bad luck slump.   Think James Franklin saw this coming when he took the job?  Knew he had an uphill battle with the recent PSU reputation and the sanctions.  Not sure he knew flying to Ireland for a game against a team from Florida and getting Pompeii’ed by a nearby stratovolcano was part of the deal though.

 

 

 

 

PS – Live look-in at fans trying to leave the stadium next week -

 

 

 

 

 

 

PPS – Not sure if people have seen this but Penn State currently has the best hype video on the market:

Hot Makeup Blogger Chick Is Blowing Up On Instagram For Drawing Disney Characters On Her Mouth

For every 100 girls out there just slutting it up on Instagram there’s like one who’s legitimately talented, unsurprisingly getting good attention for it. This Laura Jenkinson girl is one of those people.  
Can you turn a sexy mouth into a flawless picture of Bugs Bunny? NO chance. So you have to give  
kudos to this girl for being more talented than these other women out there.

 

 

 

You have to admit, dumb or not, that this stuff takes a lot of skill. I could dig up Walt Disney and  
organize a Kickstarter to reanimate his corpse to teach me how to draw these things and I still  
unequivocally couldn’t do it. Most impressive thing I’ve seen on Instagram that didn’t involve areola.

 

 

Completely unrelated tangent: As you may have noticed, your old buddy Spags has had quite a day.   Originally I figured that Pres’s blog on the comment situation would lead to a quick turn around.  
Many Stoolies are upset about the changes to the comments. Some handled it with a degree of  
maturity and optimism. Others have made memes of my face or called me slurs and spammed  
entire blogs with derogatory comments all over them. It’s all very surprising to say the least. We just  
need to understand it’s not about money or selling out or revenue. It’s about separating some of  
the wheat from an extremely small amount of chaff. Barstool is edgy and irreverent, that’s what makes
employment here so exciting. But the lazy comments, attention whoring, and casual racism can get  
really tiring. So we want to improve it and make the Barstool comments something to look forward to  
seeking out once again. Is it hard? Yes. Will it work? I don’t know. But I’m excited to find out.

 

 

PS The first letter of each line above if you’re on desktop spells out a special thank you to all of you for being a great part of my day and a contribution to what makes Barstool so great.

Couple Communicates With Nothing But Emojis For A Month To Improve Their Relationship

Daily Mail - A couple who used nothing but emojis in texts to each other for a month have revealed that it actually improved their relationship.

Alex Goldmark and Liza Stark sent each other only symbols and pictures to see if it ‘altered their emotional vocabulary’ in an experiment for New Tech City. They discovered that emojis are better for conveying affection and positive feelings, but are (unsurprisingly) lacking when it comes to making plans and discussing logistics.

Before the experiment, Mr Goldmark (who’s a senior producer at New Tech City) and Ms Stark downloaded all the emoji apps they could find. The one they relied on most was WeChat, a popular Chinese text messaging service. The pair assigned themselves icons that represented ‘I’ or ‘me.’ For Mr Goldmark it was a boy wearing a baseball cap (‘It’s a helmet,’ argues Ms Stark) and for Ms Stark it was a girl with brown hair.

‘It works best when you can be literal with the icons and treat them like they are Chinese characters,’ Mr Goldmark said in the interview. ‘Each one means a word or a sound that could add up to a word. Like toilet plus paper equals toilet paper.’

Still, the couple had difficulties communicating basic plans. In one case, Ms Stark was meeting a friend for drinks and found out the friend had just had a death in the family. She tried to tell Mr Goldmark not to come (since it should be a girls night), but he interpreted her message as meaning she was sad he wasn’t there.

 

 

 

Oh yeah, this is exactly what we need!  Because chicks were so easy to understand beforehand.  Using “words” and “the English language” and shit.  Now in order to improve our relationships we need to be able to decipher the image codes of our wives and girlfriends.  Sounds fun.

 

Listen I’m not the most romantic guy in the world but I know this – if you have to resort to communicating solely through symbols made for 13 year old girls to add something special to your relationship,  it might not be worth having one to begin with.  Like if you can’t be two adults who talk through your issues and problem solve instead of sending cartoon animals to each other’s iPhones all day, maybe you’re better off single for a little bit.  Not to mention it just sounds flat out annoying as hell.  Honestly I can’t think of a single thing more frustrating than needing to tell my wife or girlfriend to pick up Charmin Ultra Strong toilet paper because I’m in the middle of taking a shit and we’re all out and she can’t understand me because I’m using nothing but fucking emoticons.

 

Bottom line, this idea =

Bobby Bowden Says That If His Statue Ever Comes To Life And Starts Wreaking Havoc On FSU Campus He Wants Everyone To Just Keep Raging

Bobby Bowden Reddit AMA

 

 

If you don’t laugh at 84 year old Bobby Bowden sitting on a couch telling Reddit that if his gigantic metal statue ever comes to life on FSU campus and starts terrorizing people he wants them to not worry and “just keep raging,” you have no sense of humor and can’t appreciate anything in life.  Bottom line right there.

Oh and Bobby also said he has no idea how to order at Taco Bell so he would probably just pick the most expensive thing on the menu because he trusts that they know what they’re doing.

 

Wooh. Gosh, seldom do I eat at Taco Bell, I’m not sure. I don’t know. I guess I’d look to see what the most expensive thing was and go ahead and buy it. Hoping that they know what they’re talking about.

 

 

Wooh, gosh, that’ll be an XXL Grilled Stuft Steak Burrito and a Fiesta Chicken Taco salad for Coach Bowden, and throw in a diet Mountain Dew while you’re at it dadgummit.
