Stink, Stank, Stunk

Dr. Seuss's animated cartoon How the Grinch Stole Christmas has a song called "You're A Mean One Mr. Grinch." Dr. Seuss three words in that song illustrate perfectly the topic at hand by stating "….stink, stank, stunk."   If you haven't guessed by now, I am talking about the horrendous season of the 2010 Pittsburgh Pirates, which is coming to a thankful conclusion.

Superbowl Commercials

What shone, what stank, and what we'll remember most.

Aside from the game, the commercials are the most anticipated part of Super Bowl Sunday.  At 3 million dollars a pop, the 30 second ad better be memorable if you want your money back for that commercial.              Commercials mean so much to a company, not many people would know what E*TRADE is, but now who doesn't recognize their famous talking baby or Geico with the gecko, the caveman and all their other commercials.

    Have you considered a different career? Writing is certainly not what you should be doing.

  • New Call of Duty commercial sparks controversy
    To be honest, I think that this commercial is being taken way too seriously. I watched it and I just sat back and laughed. Why does everyone have to take everything to seriously nowadays? Everything is much more enjoyable if taken with a sense of humour.

    Educators are always looking for "teachable moments" to help students with their learning experiences, and the above post gives me the opportunity to help the BC3 community appreciate The Cube as a forum for thoughtful expression of ideas. We considered deleting the post and leaving in its place a notice that it was removed for offensive content, but instead we will use it to make a point. John Watson posted a well-crafted, well-researched review of cell phones. He understands that people may disagree with his review, and he welcomes reasonable discussion about it on the blog. However, when the anonymous poster calls the author a bastard, he or she crosses the line from criticizing his review to attacking him personally. In a forum that is designed to promote the free discussion of ideas and is supported by the U.S. Constitution, particularly the First Amendment, to that end, when people start attacking each other personally, the open discussion of ideas that promotes advancement in our society suffers because such attacks can turn people with worthy ideas away from the discussion. John, myself, and the rest of The Cube staff and contributors welcome your thoughts, even if you don't agree with us, but ask that you refrain from attacking anyone personally. Thank you. Susan Seibel, Advisor to The Cube.

  • P-I-T-T Let’s Go Pitt
    First off, the Pitt bias shows. You take a jab at Penn State for playing Youngstown State but, your next paragraph applauds Pitt for beating New Hampshire. Besides that, you start previewing the season even though two games have past. You have neglected to mention the monumental disappointment Dion Lewis has been thus far. Or how the defensive line is getting beat in the trenches leaving the inexperienced linebackers trying to make the plays. I'd like you take less of a vanilla take on your topics. I can scan the papers in the last two months and find many similiar articles how the Pirates are bad, Steelers predictions about the season without Ben, or Hockey season predictions. Maybe an article about Pitt missing their chance for a major bowl game last year with the collaspe in the cincinatti game or the Steelers rejuvenated running game. Perhaps one on Joe Paterno's possible last season or Penguins new lines without Stahl.
