Chip: "I suspect that if you stand at the intersection of Fambrough Drive and Missouri Street and hate Missouri with all your might the ghost of Fambrough will appear and call Missourians a bunch of sons-of-bitches."
But let's see what the LJ-World talkbackers think?
Observant says: "Just when I thought commissioners couldn't do any thing stupider than anything before, they did it. A memorial to a losing coach with only his hatred of Missouri as his claim to fame."
Trollkiller says: "Good thing we don't have a coach with a winning record like Bill Snyder, we'd have to re-name the entire town (Snyderville)."
And Andini says: "Can a roundabout be named after Mangino?"
We have to admit, however, that we do feel a little sorry for the frat guys of Delta Tau Delta who pride themselves on their 1111 W 11th St address (and their 11/11 parties). They may never find their way back home from Brother's after the name change.
When Pitchfork uses the word "necessary," we take notice. Here's a line from their rave 8.6 review of Cloud Nothings' Attack on Memory:
"As an accidental concept album affirming the enduring power and purity of early emo (as defined by Dischord, Deep Elm, and especially Jade Tree), Attack on Memory feels above all necessary, a corrective for indie rock making allowances for everything except music that actually rocks."
Making a concept album without even knowing it is pretty hip in our book.
