Preacher was a game-changer for me in regards to comics/graphic novels. It completely altered the way i view(ed) the category. Such a fulfilling read with great character development, well-placed satire, humor (as your mentioned) and of course Dillon's great artwork. I haven't read anything else by Ennis but i saw that he and Dillon have delved into a few issues of Punisher so perhaps ill check that out in the future.
I'm now reading Scalped which is definitely noir style and reminds me of the Sopranos but on an indian reservation. I'd highly recommend.

Well, to be fair, MSU has never lost to Western or Eastern. They have, however, lost 3 games to CMU ('91,'92,'09).
Giving Western some credit, though, they certainly played MSU tough a few years ago despite being a 1-11 team under first-year head coach PJ Fleck.

Jenison Fieldhouse is a great historical venue that has witnessed a wonderful collection of sports moments. How peculiar, Wolverine Devotee, that you would frequently share your own passion for sport-history while simultaneously spurning a monument to it.

He actually isn't wholely wrong in his suggestion that the situation is ironic. His choice of emphasis is just incorrect. They way he refers to the situation reveals hypocrisy (as you rightly realize) but the irony is indeed still there. To put it simply, Izzo is criticized for his constant whining. The way that he is criticized, in the eyes of Harbaugh's Nightmare, is through whining (so far just hypocritical). Taking it one step further, by whining we ourselves become whiners and thus have developed into the very thing we find deplorable. The transition itself into the very thing being criticized is where the irony exists.

Perhaps you're right about Moyes being out of his depth. I'm still disappointed, though, in what i would deem was an early firing.
I won't advocate that Moyes was the right man for the job but i greatly dislike the precedence set (for/by ManU) in firing a coach after less than a year on the job. I really don't want to turn into Chelsea with their coaching carousel theatrics. I've been frustrated countless times this season with Moyes' tactics, formations and (mis)use of players. But, to me, that can only be one side to the coin. The other side is who will replace him. I don't want to see a firing just to get rid of someone and to mollify the growing frustrations of the fans. I hope this means they have a good option waiting in the wings to replace Moyes.
In short, the eventual hiring better justify the early firing.

ehhh i tend to disagree. Having one of these random non-conference games right smack in the middle of the conference schedule is always awkward. Win or lose, very little changes. MSU could just about lose the rest of their games and still make the tourney (within reason of course). A coach never wants his team to lose. Players never want to lose. But there was very little incentive to come out fighting in this game (if you're MSU). Again, i'm not saying that was in anyway their gameplan, just what seemed to have happened....MSU was awful today.

OP, not that it changes the severity of the event, however, the shooting took place OFF-CAMPUS not ON. It was in the (in)famous Cedar Village. Needless to say, it's basically as close to campus as you can get without being officially connected.
Thoughts/prayers to all those affected. Must have been a frightening text message to receive for the students and faculty.

Ironically, it took some basketball IQ for the OSU player to position himself for the steal and for Payne to take the charge instead of trying to block the shot and potentially being called for a foul.

he might be...you never know, lol......or he may have just seen the epsiode of The Journey last season which had a segment on Adriene Payne regarding this subject. I don't remember all the details but Payne's grandma, who raised him, passed away a few years ago. Before passing AP promised her he'd graduate.
It's true that he could still have gone and come back to graduate (or finish his degree elsewhere). But i suppose there's also the possibility that the longer you are out of school the more difficult it is to find your way back into the classroom. Also, the next time he returns, it won't be free ( like it is now). True, he may have a decent pro career and make a lot of money (and thus be able to easily pay to take classes), but that's never certain.

Hey, thanks for sharing. I enjoyed reading your story. I wonder...even if you had the grades to get into Michigan would you have still gone (or heavily considered) going to MSU for that journalism degree? Or were you still undecided at that point on which direction to go (degree-wise)?

Spot on. As a son of a Scottish mother (Glaswegian) and an English father (born in Wimbledon, actually) you don't want to call a Scot an Englishman. However, a lot of Scots are coming around to being called British (mostly the younger generation) but it's still a touchy issue.

If he were, indeed, to win Wimbledon, his success as the first Brit to win in 77 years would be deemed as a service to the nation and to the sport. That would make him an eligible nominee for knighthood.
I couldn't forsee him actually receiving any of the 5 levels of knighthood in the near future. It would likely come several years down the road.

Hey, no worries GoWings2008,
My response was less intended for you than it was for those down-voting my original GIF. In posting that gif I, myself, was taking an advantage of an oppotunity for comic reflief. I can't then turn around and call you out for the doing the very same.
I should have been more clear, but my response was not a personal reprimand. Keep doing what you do and enjoy!

1. Racism involves the sentiment that one race is inherently superior to another. No such implication was made.
2. It would indeed be awkward for me to be racist against the very race to which i belong. Or are you maintaing the notion that posting a comedic GIF of someone who happens to be black means that i also cannot be black?
Just some food for thought.
