alternate headline: man does job
I've searched the site numerous ways and can't seem to find what I'm looking for. Hoping for a Christmas Eve miracle from my MGoBrethren. If this is completely inappropriate then please delete and kick me in the MGoPoints. I've had this question for weeks and have waited to post at a slow time.
Brian once wrote a post (i think it was something on the front page, maybe in a UV, but it's possible it was just a comment) where he talked about his writing.
I believe i remember him talking about writing, his writing style, giving some tips on writing, mentioning a favorite author or two, etc.
I enjoy writing, and have begun doing some small things to see how it goes. Brian is one of my favorite people to read, and I'm trying to improve so I was hoping to find this content that I remember reading at some point but haven't been able to find.
Thanks to anyone that can help me out. It's appreciated.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all, and a big thanks to everyone making this site what it is.
Seeing as basketball is not quite playing real games and the big football news is the hiring of an Awesome Dude (Also seeing as I work in the auto industry, there are only about 20% of the usual staff in the office and I'm bored as hell) I figured I'd bring back the offseason staple for today. Rather than just talk physical cars, let's open it up today to your best car story.
Did you and your dad (or mom, equal opportunity car fans here) restore an old Mustang? Did you hit your head and let your friend Danny drive vs. Craterface for pinks? Pulled over and get out of a ticket? Awesome road trip? Find VMax in your 1991 Jeep Wrangler (About 80MPH with the 4Cyl. And it was terrifying). Let's hear the best stories out there
A long time ago, in a thread very, very off-topic:
I just got back from seeing The Force Awakens. It was fantastic, absolutely wonderful. JJ Abrams is to Star Wars what Jim Harbaugh is to Michigan. It's entirely possible that Jim Hackett helped assemble the cast and crew for the film.
We're going to discuss the movie, with spoilers. If you haven't seen it, turn away immediately and go watch it so that you can get the full experience.
What did you think? How could George Lucas make such abominable prequels when someone is capable of making something as amazing as The Force Awakens?
May the force be with Blue.
So, we've had bad basketball discussed quite a bit on here. How about chatting about good basketball? The 1996 Bulls are widely seen as one of (if not the) best NBA teams ever, going 72-10 in the regular season and winning the title, only losing 3 playoff games. The Bulls were the #1 offensive team in the league and #1 defensive team in the league, ourscoring teams by about 12 ppg.
The Warriors are ridiculous, winning their first 23 games of the season, and outscoring teams by a ton.
My question is, which team wins a 7 game series? Let's do some stupid talk and get your Stephen A Smith voice out. The Warriors play small ball better than anyone, shoot 3s and dunks in a way that 90s teams didn't do. The Bulls went on a revenge tour and had Michael Jordan ready to kill fools.
PG: Curry vs. Ron Harper (Backup Steve Kerr)
SG: Klay Thompson vs. MJ
SF: Harrison Barnes/Andre Iguodala vs. Scottie Pippen
PF: Draymond Green vs. Dennis Rodman
C: Andrew Bogut vs. Luc Longley/Bill Wennington/John Salley
I think the Warriors (obviously) have an offensive advantage, especially at the 3 point line. The Bulls have more size and depth, plus the legitimately crazy MJ. Draymond Vs. The Worm might explode the world. The Bulls could probably run with the small ball warriors, putting Rodman on Green at the 5 and rolling with Kukoc as a proto-stretch-4. Who you got?
EDIT - Rules - your choice of 1990s rules (no hand checking, etc.) or today's. Also, no one has thrown a "HOWEVA" yet, your S-A-S voices need practice.
