Not sure how many DC residents frequent this board, but I've lived in the city for a decade now and have never found an exceptional BBQ place. There are more options now than ever, and some are "good" to "very good", but I've never found anything that really stands out.
Of the places worth menti...

Seems like a major step towards a Type-1 diabetes cure coming from stem-cell research at Harvard.
Given the number of people who suffer from the disease, I don't think the claim in the article that this breakthrough compares to the emergence of antibiotics is too hyperbolic.
Please note, this ...

1. New Mexico State is an absolutely dreadful football team. They have zero talent and are likely worse than most high-level FCS teams. It was stunning to me how a DI program can have such terrible players.
2. Harris is a very gifted passer. He has the arm strength and the touch to truly be el...
| Soccer Board|| Will your affinity for the USNT be mitigated should we ever not be the underdog? - MetArl15 on 7/1/14 at 8:17 pm|
I want us to win a World Cup as much as anyone and I'm a bigger soccer fan than most. Still, I find much of my connection to the NT based on how we play as a longshot. We compete hard as hell and every positive outcome still feels like lagniappe on the biggest stage, even if we certainly possess q...

SIAP, but didn't see this when I searched.

So can Duke, the only team in the ACC to beat UVA when the conference was yet to be clinched, beat the Hoos for the ACC tournament title?
Will the refs have a tangible impact on the game in Duke's favor?
If UVA can win, are they deserving of a #1 seed in the tournament?
Is UVA the best team...
| Tiger Rant|| Fumble overturn in Outback Bowl - MetArl15 on 1/3/14 at 6:49 pm|
I realize this is Germans as fvck, but I am just catching the second half of the game for the first time. How the hell did they overturn that call and call it incomplete? It wasn't close. Absolute crap decision.
I know I'm two days behind here, but that was such bull shite....
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Assuming Greer goes on IR, what's the move at CB? - MetArl15 on 11/18/13 at 9:06 am|
Do we go forward with Lewis, White, Carr and Sweeting and use Jenkins in a hybrid role? Do we try to grab a late season pickup from another team's practice squad?...

In 4 out of 5 home games this year, the Saints D has given up exactly 17 points. In the other game against the Cardinals, they surrendered only 7.
In total, the O is averaging just over 35 points at home, while the D is giving up exactly 15 points/game.
If the D can remain that consistent, no...

Saw Jeremy Shockey in a bar in DC last night. He was swarmed with people once people figured out it was him, so no pics, but it happened. Judging from the attention he received, he had a threesome with two OT 7s, which is a DC 10. For those who know DC bars, he was at Stoney's in Logan Circle. D...
| O-T Lounge|| Any Denver residents here? - MetArl15 on 9/5/13 at 12:36 pm|
Considering a move there for a job and looking for some insights into good neighborhoods. Preferably hoping to find a place relatively close to the CBD that has easy access to the bar/restaurant scene. I've heard conflicting things about LoDo and Capitol Hill as options, but don't want to end up i...
| Tiger Rant|| So do you start Eades or Glenn vs Jackson St? - MetArl15 on 5/27/13 at 5:19 pm|
If this has been discussed I couldn't find it via the search function. Either way, I lean towards Eades. Assuming both LSU and ULL make it to Sunday, a good hitting team like ULL usually is more vulnerable against a crafty lefty like Glenn instead of a power righty like Eades. Glenn also has prov...

I don't question that it's a fantastic picture and the interview with the two of them seemed genuine as hell, but I worry that the only reason people care is the fact that the little kid is black and the old guy is white. They are seemingly trying to use this to suggest that tragedies transcend rac...

Is there any talk about replacing Jones? I know he made the program, but they have struggled in recent years. As for what they showed tonight, I realize they are injury-plagued, but the team seems pretty devoid of talent. Don't get me wrong, I generally am indifferent about the success of their o...

Not sure if posted and didn't see a hit when I searched. Below is a link to a great article about a German pilot in WWII who decided not to shoot down a damaged U.S. bomber and actually escorted it out of Germany. Uplifting story about humanity and warrior's code in combat. Apparently there is a ...

I realize there was a similar discussion recently, but it's hard to not continually recognize how phenomenal the guy as been. He took one of, if not the worst program in collegiate sports and turned it into a consistent winner that perennially contends for bowl games that pre-Snyder the program nev...
