This is how The Bs have been since the Cosmic Thing period, where the core four members and on Good Stuff, three are always considered the group, and the rest of the backing band bassist, drummer and keyboardist are rarely mentioned, except live when its necessary to introduce them.
This backing band doesn't have an input into the songwriting process by all accounts. The Velvet Underground managed to pull this off with their first album which featured singer Nico on some tracks. This is how Nile has treated every bassist since Jon Vesano. Most were technically full-time members Steve Tucker and Christian "Kreishloff" Lofgren were one-time live members, but Joe Payne was officially a session member for almost two years , but promo photos usually only Karl, Dallas, and George, and the former two have recorded the bass tracks on every album since Annihilation of the Wicked.
Brad Parris has at least appeared in promo photos, but, as has been the case with all post-Vesano albums, he didn't record any tracks to be fair, he was hired after What Should Not Be Unearthed was done being recorded; the same can't be said for Chris Lollis, who around for two separate recording processes but never actually laid down any tracks.
The band is listed at the beginning of the credits after the lyrics This was a bit of a Take That! One song by the Israeli rock band Kaveret mentions "the universe and Bat Yam ".

Japanese pro wrestling famously toys with the ordeal, as while it is not widely considered a kakutogi combat sport , most of the Japanese media which covers combat sports inevitably has pro wrestling among them and sometimes presented as the main one.

Let's knock out these regional promos, friends We have ten thousand men in this orchestra, Athaniel; nine-thousand-nine-hundred-and-ninety-nine musicians. You may have noticed that throughout the civilized world British prestige has fallen very low. From the non-politically correct 's: My Lords, Ladies and Gentlemen We present - The Goon Show!
Similarly, Darrell Waltrip announced green flags at the start of races during Patrick's Cup career by saying "Boogity-boogity-boogity! Let's go racin' boys It is sometimes said that New York City is home to six professional sports teams The Dream Team is remembered for being composed of 11 Hall of Famers who are considered some of the best players in the history of basketball During the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame induction ceremony, in which the Dream Team officially entered the Hall as a unit, Larry Bird came to the pedestal and said that the team was "a cast of characters and different personalities There is home video of Stockton, getting off the team bus in the middle of traffic, and walking into the crowd with nary a person realizing who he was.

Once LBJ brought someone along with him in his return to Cleveland, people either play it straight or invert: And some guy named LeBron.

For a while, the Minnesota Timberwolves could only be heard on a 9, watt station that only reached the northern suburbs of the Twin Cities.
In Canada the line that opens a CBC hockey broadcast is: Conn Smythe began many a public speech with, "Ladies, gentlemen It wasn't until the latter half of that Murray began breaking out of his "that Tennis player most likely to fill the last spot of a semifinals after Djokovic, Federer and Nadal show up for their reservations" role. However, at the end of , Andy Murray took a level in badass and became the first Brit to win a Grand Slam in 75 years.
Then, Rafael Nadal dropped out of the Australian Open and thus out of the top 4 for the first time since The Top 5 players in Men's Tennis was then therefore composed of: More recently, with a late-career resurgence by Stan Wawrinka, some observers are now putting him on a par with the Big Four.
The National Collegiate Athletic Association is the primary college-level in the US, comprising of nearly every major and minor college and university in the United States Another Big East Zoidberg: Villanova, playing football in the second-level FCS, is the only conference member that awards football scholarships.
The other two members with football programs, Butler and Georgetown, also play in FCS, but without football scholarships. Several conferences consist entirely of public schools except for one private institution counting only full members: Belmont has no football team. America East Conference a non-football conference: Conversely, two conferences, both of which play FCS football, would consist entirely of private institutions but for one public school: Pioneer Football League a football-only league: Morehead State is a member of the aforementioned Ohio Valley Conference.
The Big West Conference, which began as a football-sponsoring league but dropped the sport after the season, demonstrates this trope in two different ways: The conference's current membership consists of eight California schools and the main campus of the University of Hawai'i.
More than 20 schools have been members of the conference, either in all sports or for football only, since it was founded as the Pacific Coast Athletic Association in Every one is a public institution except for the University of the Pacific, a private school that retains its historic Methodist affiliation but has received no church funds since It was a founding member for football only and joined in other sports in , but left in to return to its former home of the West Coast Conference.
The West Coast Conference also non-football: Then averted when BYU joined. A couple of football-playing conferences have one non-football school: These schools have traditionally formed their own conferences, a legacy of an era when many predominantly white schools refused to play them.
With that refusal in the increasingly distant past, it's now more a matter of tradition and affinity. In terms of fandom, a couple of conferences are or have been famous for having single schools with a sporting obsession wildly out of place with the rest of the league: Throughout the SEC, it's said there are two seasons: Not at Kentucky, where it's instead basketball and basketball recruiting. Football is mainly a nice diversion from basketball For much of the conference's first 40 years, Clemson was notorious for being the one football-obsessed school in a basketball-obsessed league.
