Nothing beats Madtown for game drunkenness. Pregame drinking starts at like 6 and is way more widespread than just students. A lot of fun but I can see how it could get out of hand.

Pitching and luck win World Series titles, but not necessarily in that order. You can control one but not the other.
|2 days 9 hours ago||He would have stayed for more||
He would have stayed for more money. It's easy to spend someone else's money, especially when it's pizza money, but Illitch should have done it. Illitch has invested so much in the Tigers over the last fifteen years. A Word Series title would have perfected that investment, and left a legacy. That required Scherzer.

Maybe the Tigers couldn't afford to keep Max Scherzer, but getting rid of him is the biggest factor in Detroit's mediocrity.

Maine, Alaska, Wyoming all overrated. California and Texas underrated.

I was a junior. Had a place with my friends on South Forest and was killing it. Pretty sure we had a keg race that night after the game and I went yard and kept drinking like three times.

Hop Cat? Got to be new. Possibly related to this joint in GR that came in where GR's last good steak house used to be. Or is that place Hop Kitty? Anyway never been.

Some of that 2011 Ant Hill Farms Sonoma Coast Pinot. After a 70 hour work week that ended just an hour ago.

Summer Fridays are the best. Even after all these years living outside Michigan I get this feeling I should be heading north.

Weezy looks more like Flava Fav than Weezy from the vantage point of that picture.

Cole Valley has become one of the most difficult places to rent. Very little turnover. Of course, if you find a rent-controlled unit looking for a roommate, it's another story.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||You should definitely look to||
You should definitely look to be sharing a place, on that budget. Sunset/Parkside/Richmond are relatively cheap. Of those, I think Inner Richmond has the most in terms of night life. (Plus, as of a couple years ago, Blarney Stone was a Michigan bar, and was on Geary in between Inner/Outer Richmond). I lived with friends in Parkside when I first moved to the City some years back, and saved $$$.
A good place to look that is off the radar for the most part is West Oakland. You can get accross the bridge and into the city in 20-25 minutes on a bus, and you are not far from cool parts of Oakland (Temescal, Lake Merritt).

Happy Burday!!! Love these long summer days. Last bit of twilight disappeared just 15 minutes ago in the west.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||This doesn't address the most||
This doesn't address the most meaningful conclusions of the Wells Report (such as they are--I think the conclusions are an overstatement of the evidence).
This seems to be a debate about whether the inflation was statistically significant.
It does not address the findings with respect to whether there was an agreement among Patriots personnel to deflate game balls after they had been shown to the referees. Patriots personnel appear to admit to deflating balls. You do not need statistical analysis to prove that up. Thus, even if all this is true about the sampling, it's tertiary.

Looks like Kid of Kid and Play fame. Played OK in game 5 though.

Ha, that marked summer for me for a long time. Now I can't shake the feeling that if I live somewhere where you can't watch a movie outside and BYOB, it's not really summer.

Hope that ain't mean Tweeter is selling out to GOOG.

I wonder if the U-M contract/settlement has a set-off provision. If so, that's good news for Michigan.
As much as I hated him as an AD, I wish him luck. The issue as I see it is not that Brandon just tried to import corporate culture to Michigan. It's that it was bad, bloated corporate culture. But he's one of ours, any way you look at it.

Have fun at B2B. Lived a few blocks from Haight-Ashbury for like seven years, but just moved to Lamorinda. Great memories from the Panhandle and bars around the City on this day.

One of the few genuine things Stanford has going is their band, whose lovable oddball tactics, and spot-on satire, makes you forget for a moment most of their students and alums are insufferable stiffs.

Dunno, my Tiger road jersey looks pretty good to me for cruising around on a weekend. Classic grey, orange, and blue. My wife is not as much of a fan, but that's just her.
