"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."

I might be in the minority but I enjoy listening to Cowherd. Sports is entertainment for me and Cowherd makes things entertaining, even though he is mindless and an asshat. I guess I enjoy him in the same way I enjoyed Beavis and Butthead. Sometimes my mind needs a break.
I did hate the Harbaugh interview though.

It is worth pointing out that FS1 is not available with the most basic "Select" package. You need to have the "Entertainment" package at a minimum to get it. So come on you cheapskates, upgrade today! That should be DirecTV's tag line.
|1 week 4 days ago||I interviewed with GoogleX a||
I interviewed with GoogleX a few months ago for a mechanical engineering position in their autonomous vehicle group. They're developing the onboard sensors to detect the world around the vehicle...other vehicles, people, traffic lights, etc. They are really making a huge push to bring driverless vehicles to the market just a few years down the road. I love the idea and think it will significantly improve driver safety.
Unfortunately I did not get past the phone interview even though I thought I nailed it. On the other hand, I was never sold on moving my wife and I to way over-priced Northern California either. If I did get the job the first thing I would've requested is to work from home in Durham, which would've never happened. So it was all a pipe dream anyway. But it was an interesting experience.

Not clear on this, or maybe I'm just drunk, but does this reverse the effects of CTE/tau that is already in place in a human brain? Or is it preventive? The former would be extremely good.

Bars don't assault women...drunk FSU football players do. I think Jimbo has an issue with surveillance cameras. It's not like this crap doesn't happen at the frat houses or random house parties on campus either.

I don't mind this type of stuff from rivals. It means that even though we HAVE sucked, we are still very much relevant.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I've been playing since I was||
I've been playing since I was 7 years old fairly regularly. I am 42 now so I should be WAY better than what I score at the moment. My best round is 76 at a pretty easy course. I shot 78 at a fairly difficult course about 10 years ago. Everything else has been in the 80's, 90's (mostly) and 100's (most recently...I've lost my touch!).

I would take the over. I feel pretty confident with 8 wins knowing that Rudock is the likely starter.

The Cavs tend to play a very slow game utilizing most of the shot clock on every offensive possession. They'll take it to 6 or 7 seconds most of the time, isolate Lebron, and let him shoot, drive or pass. So Lebron spends a decent amount of time in every game standing still. I am not taking anything away from his ability but I definitely wouldn't classify him as being "stretched beyond his physical limits".

This sucks. I hope they're able to pull through it. I haven't had Olga's since moving out of town in the early 2000's but I definitely miss the gyro, fresh fries, spinach pie and greek salad. Good stuff.

Cool stuff. It's things like this that actually force me to like Izzo just a little.

Not sure if this is /s but yeah, I am pretty sure that is Roy Williams. At least I think so! Spitting image if not.

I've got $4 on Michigan to win tonight. I like Michigan to win it all. I can't tell you why because I don't know women's softball. But I like Michigan because yeah, for obvious reasons.

It depends...is the train to which you are referring the 'One After 909'?

Good luck, Blake, and thanks for the memories but...fffffffffuuuuuu...
I liked the Denard post much better.

My freshman year. I was in the student section in the corner of the end zone where the play happened. It looked like Desmond tripped on his own foot until I saw the replay and realized the MSU defender tripped him up.

I don't mind comments like this from the Michigan camp. Too often over the past 7 years Michigan has been passive socially against snappy comments from rivals, and I guess for good reason because for the most part we haven't been very good. Even though they haven't played a real game yet, it feels good to finally hear a bit of confidence from the staff.

Durham, NC working for Cree, Inc.
Chemical Engineering class of 1994
Partied on South U two years in a row as the Fab 5 made it to the national championship both years. Attended the Michigan-Washington football game in Seattle just a few days prior to 9/11. I believe we lost on a blocked FG or something of that nature. Our seats were corner end zone first or second row on the opposite side of the field as the block. Attended the following year's game at Michigan where we avenged the loss.

Hello: Craig Barker
You're on Wikipedia! That's cool in and of itself. Not many people can claim that. Nice job on Jeopardy!

This is bullshit. It would've been nice to know this BEFORE I put money on Pacquiao.

Mayweather by KO within 5 rounds. Not that I'd rather see Floyd win. Not a big fan. But he's simply a better boxer.

Don't let my screen name fool you. I live in Durham, NC. But I lived in San Diego for almost 11 years prior to moving to NC. Originally from Sterling Heights, MI and graduated Michigan (AA) in 1994.

Depends on the circumstances. Five Guys burgers tend to be more fatty and juicy. In n Out burgers less so. I like Five Guys more when I have a hangover or after a night of drinking. I like In n Out if I want a great burger and I'm just hungry but prefer to be a little "healthier". Tough choice but I think I prefer Five Guys, just barely.

Game 4 was a killer. The Wings should've been up 3-1. And I don't understand how they can dominate 4-0 on the road and then look fairly pathetic two days later and lose 5-2 at home in a closeout game. Wings should've won it at home in game 6, no excuses. In all honesty I believe Tampa Bay had the stronger lineup and played down to the Wings in the games TB lost. At least that's how I rationalize it.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||This series has been weird.||
This series has been weird. Red Wings dominating games on the road. Tampa Bay dominating in Detroit. So now I fully expect the Red Wings, on the road minus their best defenseman, to win game 7.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||The defense will be B1G||
The defense will be B1G championship caliber. If Drevno/Wheatley/Harbaugh can get the running game to be consistent at the start of the season then I think 10 or 11 wins is definitely within reach. If not, I think we can be as bad as 7-5.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Best: Detroit Red Wings. In||
Best: Detroit Red Wings. In fact, I just put $3 on the Wings at bovada.lv at 20/1 odds to win the Cup this year. The Wings have been playoff contenders for the past quarter century. No other team in pro sports comes close. I haven't looked at all the stats but I think this franchise must rank at or very near the top of the list all time for sustained success.
Worst: Cleveland Browns in a tie with many others mentioned in this thread.
