Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."
I was intrigued by the whole LeBron free agency process, even though I'm not usually a basketball fan. When he announced that he was going to Miami, I was not surprised, although I initially thought he would go back to Cleveland. Then I got thinking. The NBA has a salary cap, so LBJ had to choose between teams based on other characteristics, because the money was the same no matter where he went, because he was obviously going to get a max deal. What if the free agent market was unrestricted? How much do you think he could have gotten? Would his decision have changed?
I think that Cleveland would have offered much more than any other team in this scenario, because he was everything that team and city had. Gilbert, in losing James, has lost about $100 million in value from the team. New York, Chicago, Miami, and the other teams are all much more valuable, and did not stand to lose so much from missing out. As for actual numbers, I think Lebron's contract could have been over $200 million for about six or seven years. That's well over $30 million a year, and probably one of the biggest in all of sports, at least in America, ever.
Anyone on here old enough to remember Bimbo's Pizzeria. Maybe the greatest football postgame restaurant/bar in Ann Arbor.
Crex where are you??? its been a couple of months since your last installment... any new updates???
Hey, I was looking for some help or advice from any tech savvy MGoUsers. I will be upgrading my phone later this week, and was open to suggestions. Im with Verizion and Im really not sure what to get. Im looking for a qwerty keyboard, and thats about all I require. So any suggestions? Would a Droid or BlackBerry be worth it? Or should I keep it simple and get and enV3 or env Touch?
Thanks in advance!
I lost a part of my family this morning. My 2004 Michigan Student Shirt died this morning, completing its transformation from holy, to wholly, to ripped. It was a good shirt, worn nearly at least once a week. My fondest memory of her was the Braylon game. She kept me warm when all other sources have heat had failed me that third overtime. May my shirt rest at peace in pieces.
And as for that lower lat pull machine, vengeance will be set upon thee.
