Meram is scoring some sweet-ass goals of late
I'm pretty sure this qualifies as "off-topic" although cats and kittens get thrown around here quite a bit. Regardless, here's something to waste your time:
Happy off season!
Space Shuttle Atlantis is launching on its last mission at 2:20pm.
Live coverage on NASA TV, the cable news networks, and online at:
The things you learn sometimes, I tell ya... I always knew my dad's cousin, Tom Howard, was something of a name in the Navy. I never see the man, but I know of him. I probably saw him and last talked to him 10 years ago, when I was in my young teens. I know he's a big Michigan fan like the rest of the family, but not much else.
However, there recently was an article on him in the Toledo Blade, as he has been promoted once more before retirement. Promoted to what, you say? Master Chief of the Atlantic Navy. Second higest non-com in the U.S. Navy. That, my friends, is some Maize and Blue power.
What other Michigan fans in powerful places are you aware of?
I thought someone might be able to answer this question.
Q. Why did the Big Ten announce that it would be looking into expansion?
What purpose does it serve to publically announce it? Doesn't it actually hurt the B10's ability to cherry-pick teams because the conferences "see it coming" and can try to work things out? No one was speculating expansion before the announcement, it wasn't like it needed to be addressed.
I don't think Delany does things by accident.
The decsion to publicly declare its intentions must serve some purpose.
We just passed Penn State to take over 1st place. Keep tapping to keep us in first!
What are everybody's thoughts on the current debacle that is the Detroit Pistons? In a way this team reminds me of the 2001 Pistons (veterans on the team that can possibly be replaced by younger players).
The only difference (and reason why I feel they won't make a run) is that it's a completely different Eastern Conference. Back in the early 2000s, the only legitimate threat in the East were the NJ Nets. Indiana occassionally reared its head. Both teams were relatively vulnerable.
We will see after this off-season but if the big 3 (Lebron, Wade, Bosh) get added to legitimate rosters in the East, it'll be tough to get past them.
Orlando has already established themselves as the guardians of the Eastern Conference for the next couple of years.
