I think we should explore putting a ring around the top of the stadium that says cool things like the lyrics to The Victors or something. That'd be pretty cool.

Bend your knees at the alter or you may pass out.
Your wedding night is going to be a blast. Don't sweat anything about it. After listening to my nervous wreck of a fiance stress about it for several months, we both had an amazing night. 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...
Don't initiate the cake smashing. Retaliate immediately if you get got.
If your father-in-law gives you 3-4 shots in rapid succession before the ceremony, he's trying to make sure you're too slow to run. This absolutely happened to me. Took the edge off, but in looking back, nope. No regrets. I was headed towards drunk at the alter. Wouldn't take it back.

That's awesome, but nowhere near the scores at UNC. Those athletes are all geniuses or something...

I've got no issues with that, I probably deserve the neg. I rarely take the high road when presented the opportunity. Too much elevation change. It's good that people do, though.

I thought poluvy was a big word that I didn't know. It took me about 10 seconds to realize it was just policy. I even looked it up.

Maybe. My understanding is the "don't quote articles verbatim" is extended to other professional writers as an industry courtesy. I'm not sure whether they want to extend that courtesy to unprofessional writers. That being said, I won't be upset if they delete it. Just providing a service.
|1 day 18 hours 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.

Dude is insecure and wants to protect the sanctity of his little club. That's basically what it boils down to. Hooray for you, internet poster! You get to be the excluder for once.

STUDENT athletes. The NCAA cares about academics, which is why they have these transfer rules in place. I can explain everything if you follow me and my shovel into this abandoned mine shaft.

The top one isn't amazing or anything, but there's nothing wrong with it either. The others are an affront to society. They're terrible.

What if Nike kills your entire family tonight while you sleep? Still like Nike? Didn't think so.

Well then I'd better clarify my position.
I like adidas more as a company, however I can't stand most of their Michigan gear. I'm not sure why I like adidas more, but I always have. That said, their shit they've plopped out has paved the way for another company to come in and steal away the Michigan account.
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.

Not to hammer my contrarian point, but that exact quote was in the article, right after a blip about signing a helmet for suicide awareness.

I've told this story a few times. I was there for that game. With an MSU fan. On my birthday.
At the end of the game, I rubbed my eye and my contact ripped and rolled up in my eye. I left that game streaming tears with no way to explain to the PSU fans as to why a 29 year old was crying. My buddy thought it was hilarious.

What is the penalty for curvature of the stick in hockey. Isn't that the best comparison? I'm too lazy to research...

I actually agree with your point, but using "half to" doesn't really do it justice.
...and holy shit the Patriots get nailed. Brady with a 4 game suspension. Pats fined $1mil and forfeit two draft picks next year, one a first rounder...
