    Too bad you don’t ask the commenters to ID themselves. MIght cut down on some of the you-know-what.

  2. Tim Kelley Says:

    The rest of the world uses Facebook commenting. I suggested this to FS over 2 years ago. The response was that some readers were old and did not embrace FB. Look at the previous comment. How old is that guy? And he is one of my favorite FB friends.

    If you get rid of anonymous commenting the only people who read FS are gonna be >65, so for the longevity of the site I suggest you maintain the current commenting system.

    I, Ayman al-Zawahiri, due to Mr. Tim Kelly’s general ignorance about nordic skiing, his support of the US occupation of Saudi Arabia, and his failure to donate more than $100 USD annually to the Friends of Dartmouth Skiing Fund, have been left with no choice but to issue a fatwa upon him.

  5. Censorship Fighter Says:

    This censorship is unbelievable. I wanted to comment on the team sprint article but now comments are closed.

    @tim kelley, do u have a frend in real life? do u even lift?

  7. ikermuniain Says:

    it is disappointing to see Ayman al-Zawahiri perpetuate the incorrect use of the term “fatwa” started by the western media. I would encourage everyone to read this wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fatwa and consider how they contribute to the plague of false beliefs and hate that is sweeping through our nation!

    Today is gonna be the day that they’re gonna throw it back to you
    By now you should’ve somehow realized what you gotta do
    I don’t believe that anybody feels the way I do about you now

    Back beat, the word is on the street that the fire in your heart is out
    I’m sure you’ve heard it all before but you never really had a doubt
    I don’t believe that anybody feels the way I do about you now

    And all the roads we have to walk are winding
    And all the lights that lead us there are blinding
    There are many things that I would like to say to you
    But I don’t know how

    Because maybe
    You’re gonna be the one that saves me
    And after all
    You’re my wonderwall

    BETWEEN TIM KELLY AND OBAMACARE THE ENTIRE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND THE USST WOMENS TEAM WILL BE UNDER SHARIA LAW BY THE END OF THE DECADE!

  17. Brosef Stalin Says:

    I miss Chuck Runkle. This is all very suspicious. Nordic Dave, USST, FS… Its one giant conspiracy. I have this weird sensation down below that FS gives up commenter email addresses to its allies.

  18. Bill Bowler Says:

    Has anyone found the hottest dubstep remix of 2014 yet? How does everyone feel about the producer “Skrillex”? I am looking for some good music for benching in the gym. I am trying to make a playlist but so far only have “Darude – Sandstorm”.

  19. Tim Fn Kelly Says:

    My 401k took a hit during the 2008 financial crisis so I have only been able to donate a maximum of $3.50 to the Dartmouth Friends of Skiing Fund.

    What is faster in -2 degrees celsius: Toko HF Red or Blue Dream Sativa-Dominant Hybrid?

    Contact information can also be provided for parents with questions or concerns regarding a policy.

    Soccer requires both sprinting and long-term speed, so develop your skills in both areas.
    The leather ball was created from several spherical roots by
    means of hard bristles that had been coated with rawhide, but once
    again, the game was played passing the ball from
    hand at hand.
