The new IT trailer looks terrifying

No lie the original "IT" movie with Pennywise scared the living the shit out of me as a kid.  I literally went from being totally cool with going into sewers to get my Rawlings to a complete 180.  In fact I don't think I've been in a sewer since the early 90's and I'm a grown ass man.

This new trailer gets my jimmies all rustled.  It plays into not only my fears as a kid but now as a parent the worst nightmare of losing your child.  Blood sucking clowns exist.  I'm convinced.  They are called politicians these days.

Melo Trimble Declares for NBA Draft, Thanks Maryland

Classy gesture by All Big Ten guard Melo Trimble to thank the Maryland coaches, fans, and school.

 I remain torn on Melo's impact/legacy in College Park.  When he came to Maryland as a scrawny little freshman I got Juan Dixon flashbacks going in my head.  I figured Melo would lead the team to at least a Final Four if not a championship like Dixon did 15 years ago.  They had the same game and could hit daggers behind the arc and were both local products.  The problem was were Dixon continued to get better and his game progressed I really think Melo peaked his freshman season in 2014.

Melo did help take Maryland to 3 straight tournaments including their first sweet 16 in 13 seasons last year.  I'll give him a big tip of the SportsCrack hat to that.  But after finishing his junior season (first round loss to Xavier) no one can argue that Melo was a much better player three years ago.  He could have been a lottery pick if he came out after his freshman season but now I really don't see him getting drafted.  He's not a point guard and he's not a good enough shooter.  He's also sloppy with the turnovers.  His best shot is to go to Europe for a few years, hit some threes and bang some 8 and 9's.

Good luck Melo!
