FWIW, I was told this by a girl that dated a Cavs player. I can't independently verify the stories because I wasn't there.
At 22 I didn't act that way. I drank a lot and did stupid things, but I was never that much of an asshole. Yes, his athletic talents have put him on a pedestal. I'm sure I'd be a different person if everyone told me how awesome I was 24/7, but that does not invalidate my argument. It's a cop out. I don't hate ALL athletes, and basically all professional athletes are treated like gods from middle school on due to their talents.
This is such a biased view to take. It's confirmation bias. "I like LeBron so I'll see what I want, make the excuses I want, and simply validate my point that he's not a jerk."
|1 day 8 hours ago||I separate LeBron the player||
I separate LeBron the player from LeBron the person. I'll admit that he's a great player. I just don't like the way he carries himself. I've heard a few stories where he's racked up thousand dollar or more bills at restaurants and only tipped like $10. It was reported on a radio show that one night he was chased into a parking lot by a manager because LeBron left a crappy tip on a huge bill and the girls that were serving him were devastated. You may say maybe he got bad service, but he's LeBron James. No way in hell he got bad service.
I also think he flops and embellishes injuries. Like how he hobbled around in game 3 of this series when he was playing poorly, like "Ouch, see how hurt I am? No wonder I'm shooting .300 and still taking 40 shots." then, in the postgame, it's all LeBron talking about LeBron.
So I guess I'm a LeBron hater. But I'm not going to sit here and tell you he's not a generational talent. He's really good. Just not somebody I'd like to be buddies with...

I don't think a deck would look bad if it were married up to the ends of the boxes. That would lend a little more continuity instead of having an erector set just kind of hanging out there. It would maintain that sweeping elegance that allows you to scan the stadium without having to focus on one aspect. If there was a seemless transition between an upper deck and the boxes, you'd preserve some of that feeling.

Funny story that relates in only the least tangible way.
When I was in 5th grade, we had a project that revolved aroung this premise - "You are part of a colony that is going to be established on the moon. What job will you choose, and why will that profession be needed."
I went home to tell my parents about the project over dinner. They asked me what profession I would choose. Well... I thought that the moon needed doctors, but I wanted to sound smart and use a technical word.
So I replied, "I think I'm going to be a gynecologist."
My parents basically choked on their food, and would not stop laughing. They explained to me what I had just said, and I was grossed out because my parents were explaining stuff to me about girl parts. I freaking hated that dinner.

The OP asked in a very passive and respectful way about what he may have missed about Battle. There is no harm in that. People are way too defensive and reactionary. If Battle had committed to MSU, you would not have had that reaction. The herd mentality always bugs me. Before you pile on the bandwagon, ask yourself if you genuinely disagree with the person, or if you're disagreeing because that is the expectation on this site. Had OP said that Battle sucks and he will suck at Michigan, then I agree, neg him. But that was not the case.

Nobody will care if your DJ sucks, or if the dress isn't perfect, or if you flub your vows. They'll care about free food and free alcohol.
Have free alcohol. Nobody expects a full bar, so 2-3 beer options, vodka, rum, gin, whiskey, white wine, red wine. Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, OJ, lots of bottled water. If someone can't find a drink they like in that, then they can stay sober.
We had Amish food which was delicious and not too expensive. There were massive amounts. I can't even remember exactly what we served. Prime rib is great and all, but people will eat anything that tastes good...

|1 week 3 days ago||How's this for an anecdote?||
One Sunday, Harbaugh woke at 3 or 4 a.m. His mind was spinning. He got in his car and drove. It was one of those winter nights in the upper Midwest when visibility is low and even the snow looks dark. Harbaugh roamed for three hours, until sunlight woke the town and houses came into view.
Above that sign is a photo from Harbaugh’s college days in which Schembechler is pulling back his headset to talk to his quarterback. “People think he is yelling at me there, but he’s not,” Harbaugh says. “He’s telling me a play.”
When Michigan canceled a screening of the movie American Sniper amid protests, Harbaugh tweeted that his team would watch it regardless. Headline. The school quickly reversed course. Another headline.
More than beating each other, what Jim and John really want is to be close. That’s why John initially wanted his younger brother to stay in the NFL. He liked seeing him at league meetings and the combine.
Most people get tired of working. Harbaugh doesn’t. Even his vacations are intense. Every year he goes on a mission to Peru—“face to face with poverty,” he says. He calls the experience “life-altering,” and there, too, Harbaugh finds people dedicated to their craft and becomes enamored. He keeps in contact with Archbishop Jose Antonio Eguren and other Peruvians.

Hopefully one of two things happen. 1) Michigan goes with Nike, and they immediately bring a higher quality to both the uniforms and the fan gear. 2) adidas wins the bid, but they are given a very specific set of circumstances which make them provide higher quality gear.
I'm kind of pulling for adidas to get their heads out of their asses. Barring that, let's go Nike.

It's probably best the game went so many overtimes, as on the way out I saw a group of hill-dwellers standing in vigil in front of a makeshift Paterno shrine.

10 foot tall bronze statues of each player that has a legends distinction, grouped together and located somewhere inside the gates. Each has a plaque with a 200 word bio. THIS is how to cultivate a WOW gameday experience. Be refined, be memorable. You don't need a t-shirt cannon to foster an amazing gameday. Walking amongst these literally larger than life players would be something fans remember forever.

It baffles me how this kind of stuff happens. I hope the NFL doesn't draft him and he becomes a vagrant. Look at our most recent example - Mitch McGary. He's turned to a complete degenerate. Drinking cough syrup from a hobo's boot, providing sexual favors for small amounts of THC. He has rendered himself physically incapable of playing a sport that he has been around his whole life.
That's just the thing with marijuana. One puff and you're like one of those purple minions from Despicable Me 2. Just tweaked out of your mind. You lose total control of your life. I can't count on one hand the number of close family members I have lost to the weed. It's a miserable slide to an early grave, I tell ya.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||That doesn't do anything||
That doesn't do anything about the print aspect, though. I wonder how they'd handle the jersey? Go nameless for all players for a couple years? How would they display his name on graphics when shooting free throws? Would they?

So - serious question. here... how would this be handled by teams/broadcasts? I would assume they would simply use his first and middle name? Where is that line drawn? If his last name was Cunt, would they say it? I would think so. Would they say Bitchman? I would think. What if his last name was Fucklin?
|9 weeks 3 days ago||He said he thinks, not he||
He said he thinks, not he knows. Stupid that the MGoHive started negging him in the first place. He politely offered his opinion, without ripping Miller for his decision. I agree with him, btw. I wasn't exactly torn up about being done with competitive sports, but I miss them a lot more now, and I'm only 30...

Is there merit to what the VP said about not actually seeking damages, but simply blocking the trademark of "Innovation Brewing?" Is so, it could be considered to be them being defensive about future warrantless lawsuits about BELL'S changing their slogan, yes?

Yeah, i went a bit chalkier than usual. My biggest upset pick was dayton at 11. I never pick a 12 anymore, because I'd always guess wrong and get burned twice... I picked an 11, 2 10s, and 3 9s i believe.

Yeh, I just looked it up. I guess I never knew that some stouts have nitrogen injected into their cans. I knew there were a couple of stout that had "Nitro" in their name, but I never picked up the correlation...
|10 weeks 3 days ago||You referring to draft beer?||
You referring to draft beer? Nitrogen is hooked up to stouts in a bar setting. Cans don't get the nitrogen, so they don't taste as creamy. Left Hand has a Nitro Milk Stout I believe, but if you're looking for good stouts, I'd suggest Founder's Breakfast Stout. I'm a fan.

I would consider it the responsibility of the sports team to mitigate this. They could do so by charging a premium for people who buy more than 10 tickets, or they could simply deny people from buying more than a set number.
I realize that sports franchises don't benefit in the short term by limiting bulk ticket sales, but I think they would hopefully see the long term rammifications of pricing out an entire class of fans. I mean, we were (are) kind of a case study for that.

I miss organized sports. I still play rec league, but the comraderie is simply not there. Nothing like sacrifice and adversity to forge lifelong friendships. I've never served in the military, but just going off what I went through in competitive sports, I can only imagine how tight those bonds are.
I think the reason I attend and enjoy Crossfit is that it's a poor man's substitute for competitive sports. You sweat, grin and bear it with a group, and somehow that produces an environment where people get pretty close. It's probably some deep seeded genetic trait from when we were a nomadic tribal species.

You're right. It appears that people are arguing to keep us IN DST, not to continue to flip back and forth. The disconnect is that "I like DST" can be taken in two distinct ways.

Well, to be fair, everyone was talking like getting rid of DST would somehow lessen our access to the sun. That's not how this works. Besides, who's to say we can't stay stuck on "spring forward" instead of stuck on "fall back."
I think that nacho guy succinctly described why the arguments for DST are stupid.

I think that this is taking the short view. It seems like Harbaugh is targetting California and Texas especially hard with his early offers. Even if we don't get those kids right now, the contact with the coaches, school administrators, and even the reccruits we don't land will help in the future.
It sounds like he is trying to build inroads with the talent producing regions. Even if he misses on every recruit over the next few years, he's doing himself favors for the future.

Funny story there (as funny as a HIPAA story could be, I guess)...
I reworked our HIPAA Orientation booklet about a year ago. I spelled HIPAA correctly approximately 86,000 times in said booklet. I also spelled it "HIPPA" on the cover. I didn't catch it until after the next orientation group went through. So yeah... I felt pretty stupid. In my defense, we have document control at our facility, and it came back approved...

I mean... HIPAA law covers dentists, physical therapists, lab workers, psychologists, pharmacies, and any contractors that could be reasonably expected to come into contact with medical records. That could even extend to the company that services a hospital's Xerox machines.

Oh... no. Not at all. A volunteer working at a hospital is bound by the same HIPAA law as a doctor. I train everyone from housekeeping to nurses to the officer level on HIPAA. It's federally required for anyone in healthcare.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||I'm surprised by the fact||
I'm surprised by the fact this is legal in any way. I work with HIPAA law, and healthcare data management. Nothing supercedes HIPAA law at our health system. We have extremely detailed policies and procedures that deal with how we handle our medical records.
If anything, this should expose a rather large loophole in medical confidentiality that needs to be patched asap. I am shocked that HIPAA law does not apply in this case. The University of Oregon is defending itself against a non-malpractice suit by hijacking PHI. That's indefensible. Heads should roll.
Obviously there are more important people who think otherwise, but for lack of a better word - this situation is total bullshit. Oregon just pushed their way up the fuck you list to nestle somewhere between ND and Penn State.
