Per a trainer from MSU.
Nice article - well worth a read. It really shows how players that might not grab all the headlines contribute in ways some of us might not consider.
Maybe I'm not reading it right, which is possible based on excitement level for the big game tomorrow. But if the 49ers were up by 7, and took a safety (which would increase the lead to 9), how in the world would it be possible to lose in 48 seconds?
Either way, Jim shook up Vegas a bit last night with the line being 7-8.5
My boss just left so I have the huge decision of whether or not to try and duck out early on a Friday afternoon. Would be a no-brainer except last time I got the dreaded phone call while in the car. To pass the time let us create some 5-7-5 poetry in honor of East Lansing Veterinary College. Here are a few to start the ball rolling:
Last year staee coaches
Proved it wasn’t just Rich Rod
Hoke understands now
My hot ex girlfriend
Went to this shitty ag school
Who is Thom Gholsthon?
Bonus World Series haiku:
Outside in the dirt
Yankee batters swing away
Ilitch deserves this
