I'm a lifelong Orange addict. Grew up in the shadow of Dome-dom in Binghamton NY, went to school at 'Cuse, and thusly upgraded my addiction to a lifestyle that often flummoxes others.

Rooting for this school's athletics will be the cause of my death, or my commitment to an institution of mental rehabilitation.

To paraphrase Jay-Z: This isn't the life I chose, but rather the life that chose me.

To be fair, most of us lifers here at TNIAAM have always found recuiting 'rankings' to be the epitome of psudo-news and absolutely useless and stupid.

I might also add that re-watching the show given newer context is also rewarding, it's that well thought-out.

Yes, but I wouldn't start tonight, the show is built on curveballs and left turns that watching tonight would reveal too much of.
