    Debatable.

    The NBA and NFL drafts. Who cares who is the "top pick"? And what kind of person wastes their entire day wondering if Joe Schmoe will be drafted ahead of Joe Schmoesmith?

    Harrison Ford. As Han Solo and "Raiders" Indiana Jones, he's an ace. Beyond that, no range, no nuance, no talent. He made Jack Ryan seem deadly dull.

    Rock the Vote. "Hey, it's up to you! Make your voice heard! Get out and vote...for one of two choices, neither of which is all that appealing."

    Tea and Coffee. Nevermind the supposed benefits of tea -- it still tastes like dirty water. Coffee, on the other hand, tastes like burned water. If you're filling half your cup with sugar and cream just to make something palatable, maybe you'd be better off just drinking the sugar and cream in the first place.

Could you elaborate on what you mean?
    The idea of wine is overrated, not necessarily wine itself. The appeal of wine to many is in its "snob" factor. People want to be able to say that they've had a more expensive, exotic, or older wine than someone else as much as they actually enjoy the same wine. Now, I understand that this does NOT apply to everyone. There are many people who like wine for wines sake. But, so much of wines appeal is it exclusivity.

    You can say the same thing about music: "I can't believe you've never heard of this band."
    You can even say the same thing about beer: "You've never had 'insert obscure beer, how sad...'"

    It just doesn't appeal to me. I LOVE seafood but lobster just doesn't register with me.

    "Seinfeld" - Funny, but not nearly the show people rhapsodize about. Also not aging nearly as well as some other great comedies.

    Sushi - Coming to the point where you get looked at quizzically if you have the audacity to say "Hey, I just prefer my fish cooked."

    6) THE OFFICE... blah
    7) Rambo

    12) Will Ferrel
    13) Star Wars--- ALL OF THEM
    14) Crisis in Tibet--- I don't care
    15) Our continued presence in Iraq

    Agree strongly on both counts.

    I know I'm going to cause a riot(but isn't that why we have a message board?)
    1) Jimmy Buffett - 2 songs don't deserve a restaurant, 25 years of continuous touring, and a lifestyle/wardrobe.
    2) Dave Matthews - Jimmy Buffett 2.0, just with a few more songs. His songs are okay, but the cult following is obnoxious. His concerts seem like an excuse to relive your freshman year of college.

    Say what you will about my Country, my Mom, my soon to be born son but I will be damned if I am going to let you sit there at your computer and type slightly displeasureable things about Seinfeld. I will fight you. Where can we meet?

We have a very personal connection. Your favorite sports team should almost always be your undergraduate alma mater (same goes for high school). Everyone in Ohio Stadium on a Saturday either went to OSU, has family that went to OSU, or friends that went to OSU. How many Reds fans have any affiliation with the team? The same question applies to Bengals fans. If you look at it that way, shouldn't all professional sports be overrated?
