Q. Why football? This is the second project where you've taken the sport and turned it into something recognizable but completely different; do you think it's more receptive to messing around than other sports? Or do you just like it the most?
A. I see a really clear parallel between America and football: both are beautiful, and both destroy people. This is a recent development in neither case: they are designed to create misery. They are both institutions that I want to love unconditionally, but can’t possibly.
I can only appreciate either if I retreat into fantasy, filter out what I hate about them, and present a distillation of what i love about them. If you distill American into the land itself, and if you distill football into the game itself, and you populate them with the people who make them both beautiful, you end up with a world I find pretty amazing.
Diaz says that’s when he alerted restaurant employees, who dialed 911.
The police came pretty fast. One of them gave me a book about ants that was pretty cool. How they all work together to build their hills and stuff. Before I knew it, my fries were done so I went in and picked up my fries, and then I went home and my wife and me ate the fries that I got at the Cracker Barrel. They were really good. Some other places try to do all kinds of fancy things to their fries but Cracker Barrel just makes regular fries the way they ought to be made and my wife and me like ‘em a lot.
Upon stepping or being forced out of bounds, a player has 10 seconds to return to the field of play. If they still have not returned, they begin spending their “out of bounds time,” or OBT.
A player accrues one second of OBT for every year they spend on the field. Hence, if a player has avoided spending any OBT after 30 years, they have 30 seconds of OBT saved. Combined with the 10-second grace period, this player would theoretically be able to spend 40 seconds out of bounds, although it will take them a great deal of time to accrue more OBT.
twitter comments pointing out that the time clock in the video seems wrong. In the video, the clock begins counting down as soon as Navarro leaves the field, but it should actually count down 10 seconds of grace time before it starts eating at his OBT. (vibratory manner of working)
Listen, I don’t hit you over the head with all the shit I know. I know all about chess, but I don’t spend all day going like oh, Nick, what’s a back rank mate? What’s a Réti’s mate? What’s a smothered mate?
It’s about to be you in a minute.
"All that time, all those threads, weaving through something that must have been far too confusing to enjoy."
I think that's love.
