So I just finished my last final for my undergrad and I told myself that I was going to start reading more after I was done. I'm looking for a good sci-fi/fantasy book, maybe a series. Either something with dragons and magic or something in the future but not set on earth. Any suggestions? I keep asking the gf and shes keeps telling me to read Magical Thinking and I keep telling her that i want magic in the book, not in the title.
Three and Out kept getting pushed down my priority list until just recently. Despite the fact that I live in Florida and don't really wear socks very often, when I came across the following text, I knew I had to have these...
But before the players do any of those things, they stand in line at the equipment managers’ window to get the gear they deem most important. It’s not the $257 helmets or $330 shoulder pads or even the $150 jerseys.
Nope. It’s the $4 socks. But not just any socks. Twin City socks—the thickest you can find.
Center David Molk, at the front of the line, handed me a pair. They are so dense, you could wear them as slippers around the home—or fill them with water.
“Best part of being a Michigan football player,” Molk said, holding up a pair, “is these socks.” Every one of his teammates—and I mean every one—agreed with that assessment.
At dinner Molk approached linebacker Jonas Mouton, who was enjoying a huge helping of pretty much everything.
Molk asked Mouton if he knew where his Twin City socks had gone.
“I don’t know, man,” Mouton replied, taking a bite out of his drumstick and chewing very slowly. “Go see Big Jon.” Falk, that is, the equipment manager.
“It’s dinner,” Molk said. “He’s not here.”
“Go see him tomorrow,” Mouton said, picking up a roll.
“I want them now.”
“Guess you’ll just have to wait, then.”
After Molk turned and walked to the back of the buffet, ticked off, Mouton leaned forward and said, “I’m wearin’ ’em.”
Just a little googling reveals a huge number of cuts, styles, etc. from Twin City. So my question to the board is: does anyone know what kind the players get that are supposedly so good? If not, I would settle for a product review from anyone who has bought these, including the style they got and whether they lived up to expectations set by the description in the book. Thanks in advance for any feedback.
Yes, my first thread on the MGoBoard is about socks.
Please hurry football season, etc., etc.
It's a very rare night in which there are a few things worth watching during summer.
#1 The Tigers look to keep pace with the Sox who, with a win today, now sit atop the AL Central table. Lets get a win, Maxy.
#2 (In Retrospect) Our girls got a W today over France in a comeback 4-2 victory.
#3 Liverpool and Roma squaring off in Fenway.
#4 The MLS all stars taking on Chelsea. "This is a band of rivals, elected by the people, who have come together to defeat a common enemy." - ESPN
Between the laptop and the tele, I'll be keeping an eye on as much as possible.
Let's go Tigers, and Let's go Blue!
EDIT: Proposed that this is the drinking thread, too. I agree...
Dave Brandon signed an extension taking him through the conclusion of the 2017-2018 athletic year. He gets an initial kick from $600k base salary to $800k, with automatic $50k raises each year. The maximum he can make in bonuses is now $200k, up $35k, meaning his salary plus bonus in 2018 can hit $1,250,000.
Article above. Great news. Allows 2K to get back involved in the college games. Won't take effect until 2014, but it will force EA to have to fix all its bugs now that there's competition. Hopefully 2K makes a basketball game as well.
