|1 week 17 hours ago||1997 OSU||
I was at student at Bowling Green at the time. Most of my fraternity brothers were from Ohio and OSU fans. They had all talked themselves into 1997 being their year because Michigan had ruined so many National title dreams for OSU in the 90's that it was their turn for some payback. They all decided to get a keg and watch the game together in an off campus house. I was alone in our fraternity house with my roommate, who was #NFLOnly guy.
After the game, I heard the guys start filtering back into the house, doors slamming, expletives being shouted down the halls, and I decided to have some fun. Ran through the halls singing "The Victors". Ended up at the bottom of a dog pile with about 50 brusies. And it was worth every damn one of them.

my first attempt at college, thats what I did, and I spent 10 years working real jobs to pay it all off and get myself back to zero. Then,during all that time working real jobs, I learned I HAD to go back to school, because there wasn't much opportunity for advancement without a degree. I was lucky enough to worki in operations for regional banks, so I was fortunate there (can always be worse), but after my 4th layoff in 6 years (all part of wide spread layoffs), I decided enough was enough.
I got back into school. My wife was working, but her Law School debt was enough to give Scrooge McDuck heartburn, so there wasn't much loose cash to pay for things upfront. The latest company I had landed with didnt offer tuition reimbursement. But, had to do it.
And now I'm buried...and my wife is buried. Maybe it would be different if you didnt need a freaking degree to get a job that makes 35k a year. Thats part of the problem. An employer shouldnt be allowed to require a degree for a job unless that job pays a commensurate amount of money.

"80s" music goes, it's Come on Eileen. by Dexys Midnight Runners
Now, there are other songs that come out in the 80's that I liked better, but I consider "80's music" to be a subset of all of the songs that come out in the 1980s.
Favorite song that came out in the 80's, period? "We're gonna groove" by Led Zeppelin. Song 1, side 1 of Coda (released in 1982)

restores a 71 Torino from the ground up. It was a 20 year labor of love (his day job was in a body shop, he only worked on it when time/budget would allow). He put a 460 in, so I can verify there is plenty of room for one.

|2 weeks 3 days ago||so Twitter tells me||
that this was solely David Griffin's decision. he felt the team was underperforming under Blatt and has been trying to get Gilbert to pull the proverbial trigger fo a while now, and the GSW game Monday was the last straw. According to Peter Vecsey, Blatt had been telling friends that it was "him or Kevin Love".
There is also an assertion that LeBron was not consulted, but then again, sometimes you don't ask questions if you already know the answer so take that fwiw.
It's all on LeBron now. No one left to blame. Finals or bust. They better hope Steph Curry gets hurt.

if you're middling recruit, I'm sure the Michigan offer helps get you on the radar at other schools, so they do get some benefit, albeit indirectly. I'm not saying thats Harbaughs plan (to help middling recruits raise their stature) but it doesnt hurt.
if this were the old days where once a recruit was "committed" other schools would lay off, thinking the race was over, that'd be a different story, but from what I gather every school recruits whoever they want, verbals be damned, all the way until the fax machine warbles

tweeted his support and he referred to Mort as a "good man". Some idiot brought up Morts deflategate report that was ultimately proved to be false and questioned Kings use of the phrase " good man" to describe Mort because of it. Lesson? The world is full of a-holes

I guess they didnt really realize how damaging Apnea could be. But thats how my Dad went. He left for work one day and never came home. I got a call at work from my sister (who was hysterical) and the first thought in m head (as it was the beginning of April) was "this is a really bad April Fools joke."
He used to stop breathing in his sleep many (in the 20s or more) times a night. He was quite the snorer, so when he went quiet, it'd freak my Mom out and wake her up, and she'd poke him in the ribs and he would start breathing again. One day, his heart exploded like a balloon. He was a week shy of his 53rd birthday.
I hope I've scared you enough to follow up on your own issues.

died on April 9th (not recently. 17 years ago when I was 21). I hate that day. I feel badly sometimes because its my cousins birthday, and Im sure some years it puts a damper on his day as well. Oh well, cool story bro.
Sleep apnea is a killer folks, not something to be taken lightly. If you ignore it, you might just up and die one day

I think Rudock can carve himself out a nice career as a backup QB in the NFL. He's got the perfect demeanor for it. There's no shame in that. In a few years, he may even find himself in a situation where he gets a shot at a QB competition in some teams camp.
