"(I) think about 'The Lion King,' Simba gets hit over the head and (he's told) 'the past can hurt,' " Harbaugh said Monday afternoon. "'You can either run from it or embrace it and learn from it.'
So I wake up from a much-needed power nap to find no friday night drinking thread. What the heck is going on around here? We are 13 days from the season opener and we are getting very close to the end of summer. Yesterday I watched oldest son's football scrimmage and it felt alot more like October up here than mid-August. Two questions:
1. Your drink of choice tonight is....
2. Your plans to squeeze the most juice out of what is left of summer is/are....
Have a great weekend while you watch for surfacing subs.
Pretty amazing story here, proud of our boys in uniform.
Three people have been hurt after a heavily armed man opened fire on a train in northern France, before being overpowered by two American passengers.
The incident happened on the high-speed Thalys service near Arras, and the attacker was arrested at Arras station.
The interior minister praised the Americans, one of whom was seriously injured, as was another passenger.
The man arrested was a 26-year-old Moroccan. Anti-terrorist officers have taken over the case.
The weapons were said to include a Kalashnikov, a knife, an automatic pistol and cartridges.
One of the two people seriously hurt had a gunshot wound, the other a knife wound.
Hello Friends and Foes,
Finally the moment you've all been waiting for. Here are the results and analysis of my super scientific and official survey that was taken by you all some 380 times. However, since I currently have no currency and am also very cheap I decided to not upgrade my SurveyMonkey account to be able to view all 380 responses. However, I can view 100 and believe this will provide a nice little snapshot of the results and enough info to disect and analyze. I'll be honest, if it was called SurveyKoala or even SurveyMarsupial I'd probably upgrade. I hate almost all monkeys except for RGard so therefore I did not upgrade at this time. This is a super scientific survey that I spent much time on so please take the results and my analysis as the absolute fact and truth that can not be argued or discussed. No, not even by DiscussMan or whatever the hell his/her avatar is. Obviously you will discuss anyways, so go ahead and let me know what you think or tell me you hate me and my antics and my schtick. What you should do is take your opinion and SCHTICK it up your tight ass. Also don't complain about my lack of paragraphs, just don't read it and post a funny "cool story bro" gif instead. Feel free to bitch about my spelling and grammar if that helps you feel happy that your better at writing than a Koala. (You're* Got you already!) Okay. Let's begin!
1.) Do you like me?
47% of you said "yes". Thank you. I like you too. Some of the "Other, please specify" responses were very interesting. A few of the responses included "get off my lawn" in Spanish and "eat 7 dicks". Seven just happens to by my favorite number! One person said I could lick their sack, but they didn't specify what it was a sack of. I think maybe apples or sweet potatoes from Trader Joe's. One person asked if they could "finger my can". I dont know what that means, but it sounds dangerous. I've cut myself on can lids before. Others don't like my new Avatar and one person said he didn't kill his wife. That's good! My favorite response was this rap that I'll paste below.
Man I really wanna like you but I really wanna fight you. At first you seemed real cool and I aint tryna fool. But then you full of yourself and started acting like a tool. Yo I love me some koalas like I love me gin and tonic and those yummy burgers at the Sonic. But I know deep down your doing this greater good. And you call yourself out like a hater would. Man you're great for the community. Making the most of opportunity but demanding your impunity like a leader should. Look at me I'm starting to ramble. And my rhymes going to shambles. So I'm out. Peace and love-your boy randle
Thanks Randle. That was very nice. Let's brawl to the death sometime.
2.) Do you like Owen Wilson?
I'm telling you, you have to watch the video of him saying "wow" and you'll hate him and his lack of acting range. Most of you liked him (47%), but admited to being a psychopath. That number of psychopaths running around is worrisome indeed. One time I met him and he scratched my head and said "Oh wow, Is that like a Wombat?" Wombat?!?! I look nothing like a wombat.
3.) How many MGoPoints Should I have?
30% of you said I should have all the points, and the rest of you were wrong. I should get at least half of WD's points. You know my Point Parties are better than anyone else's anyways and you're all invited, except for the Discuss guy.
4.) I would like to see more if these surveys in the future.
This was an even split. 30% said yes, but make it funnier. I'll try, but I'm not very funny so don't get your hopes up. I'm more of a quantity rather than quality joke koala. Another 30% said they were drunk which I thought was a surprisingly low percentage. This blog has a lot of Owen Wilson loving psychopathic drunks. FACT
5.) The muffin Question.
This was my favorite and I was excited to see the results. Here are the favorite muffins for each subject:
Harbaugh: 35% think that Harbaugh would say "Muffins are for fancy boys". 2nd was Meat flavored with 31%.
Dantonio: 51% said he would say "Eh muffin? Just feed me something bitter and stale and hard to swallow." Very telling indeed! TWSS
Astronauts: Most people said they would like Bran muffins. I don't know why, but Okay seems like a good choice. Poppyseed was a distant second. Astronauts like generic muffins. FACT.
6.) Do you want the Marsupial Monday Thread?
11% chose "Get off my lawn". I'm probably gonna pee on your lawn. 40% said some version of YES. Apparently there are 17 Mods and they said "Yes, we won't delete it". 3 said they would delete it. So it looks like 17 out of 20 Mods support Marsupial Monday. IT's HAPPENING! Thank you JustinGoBlue for suggesting it! 7 People just want me to stop it. I won't stop it. You stop it.
Sincerely your's in Harbaugh,
P.S. Rhonda Rhonda Jones
EDIT: Here is the SURVEY if you want to take a look, but remember I can't see the results anymore unless I fork over some cash to the corrupt survey people.
So here in Salisbury, North Carolina we're celebrating our local girls team winning the Little League World Series of Softball. They are a great group of everyday kids with big hearts and drive. Two items of note:
After defeating the team from Rwanda, they noticed that the Rwanda players were carrying their personal equipment in their hands and as they had no bags for them. So, they pooled up money (ok, their parent's money, but still) and purchased bags and souvenir pictures for each Rwanda team member to take home.
The other item of note was their particular practice of "making pizza" during their games. Spread the sauce, sprinkle the cheese, etc. Wonder where they got that?
Edit: The Rwanda game was earlier in the week. Not the finals. Sorry for the confusion.

My favorite snippet: Tomsula looks like the love child of Mario and Ron Jeremy. He looks like every press conference should start with, “Imma a-gonna win!” And it would still be better than what he actually does say.
I just thought I'd put it to the board and see if any Mgobloggers have won any real money on Draftkings.
I haven't been playing very long but so far my only miss came last Sunday playing NASCAR and even then I was in the money until Clint Bowyer crashed at MIS. I've only been playing the $1 and $3 50/50 and multiplier games so far but based on my point totals it looks like I would do pretty well in $10 and $20 games. To me it's all about reducing variables to minimize risk.
So I was wondering...
Has anyone on the board been able to win consistently? In which sports? How many $$$? How long you been playing? Any hints, thoughts, strategies?
Quick facts for anyone reading this that haven't played on DraftKings:
1. Yes, it's 100% legal.
2. Though considered a game of skill, It's still a little like gambling. (IMO)
3. No, the games aren't rigged.
3a. Yes, they'll pay you if you win.
EDIT: Took the link out because I'm not trying to make any $$$, just looking for thoughtful discussion.
