Ramblings of a Track and Field coach pretending to know sports....
My name is Jared. I live in Denver. Born and raised in San Diego. Proud alumni of SDSU. I coach Track and Field. I am a Special Ed. teacher. I love talking about sports more than anything. Put down the flamethrower. Sit down. Stay a while.

I wrote a little review after 7 hours with my Pro, it is a post down from this one in the blog.

Basically, after pouring in many many many more hours, my thoughts are pretty much the same as they are in my original "Bottom Line," which is as follows:

At 1080p SDR have I noticed huge gains across the board with the PRO? NO. I have not.

Do I feel this is a necessary upgrade for everyone at 1080p?
Nope, I sure don't.

Do I feel like

Hi. My name is Jared and I have been a big time supporter of the PS4 Pro (or NEO, as it was known back in the summer) basically ever since the first info leaked.

I was able to pick up my system last night from Gamestop at 10pm MTN time, along with Dishonored 2 (which I have not had a chance to even play yet! Ahhh!!!!)

I have posted numerous impressions in the PS4 discussion thread and I figured I would kind of wrangle everything together in a single post regarding my ... Read More

If someone sends you a heartfelt attempt to reach out to you in any way shape or form, whether it is is to reconcile, or just say hi, or check in, whatever, and you refuse to even acknowledge receiving that communication attempt, that's harsh as hell.

Thing is, I am guilty of this. I have done this to people in the past, so I guess what I am experiencing now is just karma and "what is going around, coming around" or whatever the old saying is.

Thing is, you don't even ... Read More

I have posted on OS over 10,700 times and none of those posts made this site any better or contributed anything meaningful to the community.

I have tried and failed to make friends and join circles on OS. Now, after repeatedly falling short of becoming a valuable member of any corner of this site I have to face reality and accept that I am just a weird person who isn't ever going to be popular in life and will probably spend most of my life entirely alone. There are worse things ... Read More

There is something I have thought about for awhile now. It probably crosses my mind way too much, and to be dead honest, it is definitely ridiculous that I let this bother me at all, let alone as much as it actually does.

So, again, full disclosure: I am dumb for caring about this. Fully admit it.

That being said, as time goes on I can't help but notice trends, post to post, on OS and I feel like there are patterns as far which posts get likes and which posts don't. ... Read More

So let me get this straight.

Johnny Manziel gets paid a few grand for signing autographs and MIGHT be suspended the entire year.

Jeremy Hill, seen here in the purple shirt (actually, not sure I am allowed to link to the video, so I won't, but google it), sucker punches a guy outside a bar (how is a 20 year old drinking?) and is suiting up week one, no problem.


This isn't a fight, by the way, this is an assault. This is a big time ... Read More

Random Thoughts:

I know it was just a limited amount of play time but I thought Von looked great as well.

The o-line is definitely a large concern for me at the moment. I find it hard to accept anyone's criticisms of Brock or Zach because quite frankly the backup o-line was next level bad. Yeah, on a couple of plays maybe Brock needed to step up and pull the trigger but bottom line is he needs to be protected better to see what he can do with the ball. Starting line ... Read More

One thing that has started to irk me to no end is this need to attack people who have different opinions than you.

I believe this is a bi-product of the internet-keyboard-warrior generation.

Back in the day you could talk to people about music you like, movies you like, etc. Now, nobody really talks like that because nobody really listens. Instead of listening, people just wait for you to finish saying what you have to say before completely and viciously assaulting ... Read More

Dear Riley Cooper,

It's beyond idiotic to say "I don't use that term," when you are in trouble for being caught on video using "that term." Right, this is the only time you have ever used that word in your life. You aren't racist at all. Out of the trillions of things you say in your entire life, the ONE time you ever decide to use a racial slur it just happens to get caught on tape. Right.

There's nothing like seeing a white NFL wide receiver dropping a straight ... Read More

I take back what I said, Ryan Braun is not an idiot. In fact, I think he might be the smartest guy in the world. If you examine the case and the "repercussions," you will find that facts clearly point to a huge Braun victory in the long run. This is not a case of the "system" working. This is a case of "steroids" paying off.

Ryan Braun was told that his suspension "might be 50 games, might be 500 games." He basically plea-bargained with MLB. MLB rules dictate that a first time offense ... Read More

Two executives busted for DUI, their best defensive player (and arguably a top 10 player in the league) busted for, what looks like a second time, recreational drugs....

Is there an issue in Denver? Let's not forget the Parrish Cox rape allegations (following a night of partying that other members of the Broncos were involved in), the Elvis Dumervil Gun-Flashing fiasco, D.J. Williams just being an all-around not model citizen......

What dictates this kind of locker ... Read More

Did Drew Brees have one of the most unnoticed excellent seasons of all time last year. Considering the numbers he put up against defenses that knew there was no run game whatsoever to worry about, and, the fact that he was pretty much his own OC, what he did was pretty phenomenal. Were the picks a little high? Yeah, but 5 of those were in one flukishly terrible game, and the bottom line is when you throw the ball a lot, you are going to have interceptions occur. Just ask Andrew ... Read More

Ok, the Aaron Hernandez thing. What a bizarre story. When I first heard about this whole thing I thought it was a prank. When I actually saw the reports online I was mesmerized, I spent a solid hour reading every report I could find on the matter.

Something about this guy always rubbed me the wrong way. Was it the excessive celebrations after every catch, was it the punk/attitude shown at press conferences ... Read More

I post about sports on Facebook almost exclusively. My friends make fun of me for it. I decided I will keep a log of these sports thoughts, copy them over here, and see if I can get any sort of reaction from other sports fans whatsoever.

Admittedly, this concept is flawed as all these topics are old news now. Perhaps I should post rants in here going forward instead of flooding my Facebook feed with them.

My buddy and I are in a debate over whether or not this picture is actually Tim Tebow.

Come on, really? Is that REALLY him? What do YOU think?

Dude looks like a defensive end.

Question, whoever that is, did they ever find that ball or did it disintegrate on contact.
