there would have to be some to wash away
Today, my buddy is moving to Bangalore, India for his career. He's a regular here, but he doesn't have the requisite points to post this himself. He's wondering whether there are any mgobloggers out there in the Bangalore area who know anything about watching football games there. Are there alumni gatherings? And what kind of TV package should he get to ensure he has the ESPN/ABC games, along with those on the BTN? Any general advice to share? For the time being, he's planning to Slingbox the broadcasts, but he's worried about the quality and reliability of that option.
Thanks in advance for any help and advice you can offer.
Lets get this thing going early. We have a month to pass PSU. If we all push hard and bobble on all of our PC's then we can take these fools. Use your smart phones, your laptops, your work computers, and anything with an internet signal and do it every day. Let's win this thing.
I was just watching a show on Discovery Health about a child with abnormal strength. He was walking at 5 months. Climbing and decending stairs at 6 months. Doing pull ups at one year. The kid is going to be a freak athlete, it's obvious. The best part, his dad says "I'd love to see him play football for the University of Michigan someday!" Seriously, if you get a chance to watch this show, check it out. It's unbelievable.
update: here is a weird video featuring him..
While I wish LLP the best of the luck and am not trying to rag on him, his departure today reminded me of the prediction by Tim McCormick that LLP would be "the best UM pg since Rumeal Robinson". Is this the worst sports prediction you have ever heard?
I've established the following criteria to define a "sports prediction":
1. The person making the prediction must be a talking-head who is paid by a medium to analyze sports.
2. The prediction being made must be one that is unique to the person making it. While predicting Ryan Leaf would be a good NFL qb is an all time terrible decision, you can't really fault Mel Kiper for saying so because EVERYONE thought Leaf would be a good qb.
3. The person making the prediction must not suffer from dementia. I don't wan't Lou Holtz's outlandish ND predictions taking up the whole list.
4. The person making the prediction must actually believe what he is predicting and not just saying it for the sake of argument/to make compelling tv.
Off the top of my head, here are the all-time worst sports predictions I can think of (in no particular order):
1. "LLP will be the greatest UM pg since Rumeal Robinson" - Tim McCormick
2. "Ron Pawlus will fin 4 heismans" - Beano Cook
3. "Oregon State is our preseason #1 team" - SI
4. "Michigan will make the Alamo Bowl in 2008" - Brian Cook (just kidding)
What other terrible predictions would you guys put on this list?
I've seen several topics where people recommend flickr or some other monstrosity for uploading images, so I felt the urge to recommend imgur
You do not need to register and it takes literally 1 click to upload an image, and there are no bullshit terms. Frankly I have no idea how they stay afloat, but the website is incredible.
So, who spent a lot of money they ordinarily would put towards something useful on stuff they're going to blow up this weekend?
I did! I did! Phantom Fireworks in Oregon, OH. Lotsa good stuff.
