This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

My first recollection of marshmallows is probably 1991 by ghop
If I remember correctly in 1990 we tried to recreate the throwing of oranges at the last home game in anticipation of an Orange Bowl bid. It was not well received as people were getting clobbered by oranges and injured. I think I remember the flying marshmallows at the last home game the following year. We figured nobody could get hurt by marshmallows, but if I recall correctly there were issues with people loading up them with coins or little rocks to make them go farther. It was definitely more prevalent when I was in law school the following years.
