We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.
Where the madness isn't just in March.
You have no favorite boards.
Epic, epic fail
"A fisherman off Panama was battling a huge black marlin when the battle took a turn for the worse. The fish sank the boat.
Or as Marlin Magazine put it on its Facebook post, "Marlin Wins!"
Not all the details are in, but apparently the captain began backing down on the huge fish, a common practice in big-game fishing when a fish is taking line. He puts the boat in reverse to chase the fish.
One commenter on Marlin Magazine's Facebook post who apparently had some knowledge of the incident said that the captain fell as he was backing down on the fish at full throttle. The boat took on too much water and, finally, there was no correcting the situation. So, indirectly, the fish sank the boat.
Marlin Magazine reported that the boat went to the bottom of the sea and everybody on board was rescued by the photo boat. And, of course, the fish got away."

I'd be shitting my speedo around the time pic 1 was taken.
LOL... the captain had a bajillion horsepower engine, help, a flotation device (also boat), expensive reels and line, and opposable thumbs. The fish was naked. And won.
Golden is better then Jimbo... I feared it was true. He is going to hoist a crystal ball there - fsufsu
I Believe Auburn and Love IT...4 Life!
You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
That's what I would call epic fail.
