He would have been great if they just let the dinosaurs eat him.
Repeatedly, South Park style.
|15 hours 49 min ago||And we are all mistaken...||
While looking up some other stuff, I noticed the following release dates:
Meddle (November 1971)
While good, Obscured by the Clouds was not on par with the others on the above list, so probably the last 3.
|17 hours 40 min ago||For me any sequence from the||
For me any sequence from the Moody Blues' first 9 albums (Day of Future Passed - Long Distance Voyager) could be chosen, but I'll put forth their 4th - 6th albums:
To Our Children's Children's Children
|19 hours 29 min ago||I was thinking of the same||
I was thinking of the same sequence, looked it up and saw Yellow Submarine there. And that killed it for me. Also Magical Mystery Tour was between Yellow Submarine and Sgt. Peppers, so you can't have a list that includes both Abbey Road and Sgt. Peppers.
If Yellow Submarine could be left off, I's go with the White Album - Abbey Road - Let It Be sequence for The Beatles.
|20 hours 41 min ago||I was going to post this.||
I prefer Meddle over Animals, and like how the sequence of Meddle - Dark Side of the Moon - Wish You Were Here builds.
But I know a lot of Pink Floyd fans and Animals is a favorite with many of them.
|1 day 18 hours ago||I'd rather...||
... wear orange.
|3 days 19 hours ago||Yup||
Worked well for Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton in their marriages as well as movie together in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf.
|1 week 2 days ago||Yup, I remember that quote.||
He and the team played poorly in the NCAA's and that was against teams seeded much lower than Michigan.
Excellent player, but I think there are others that are more deserving of the top honor a that program can bestow.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Me too.||
Of the first 50 games in the series from 1898 to 1957, 46 were played in Ann Arbor. I think we can concede another home game to MSU as a slight correction to this historical imbalance.
Some people might refer to this as ancient history and not relevant to today. But those same people probably point to Michigan's history in all-time wins, winning percentage, national championships, etc., where most of this was accomplished in the first half of the 20th century.

so it comes down to ditching either the pilot or your wife.
Clearly, the answer depends on how well your Apache is armed.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||i don't know, humblebragger, but||
have you ever spent Christmas on Christmas Island?
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Yup||
been to both myself (obvsly).
The old one had great nostalgia, but the new one is a really nice place to spend an evening.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I don't know if I understand||
Is "stan" supposed to be stand, fan, or stain?
Or is Tacostan some kind of weird county I've never heard of between Afganistan and Uzbekistan?
|4 weeks 2 days ago||I think you have confused||
Rio Grande with El Dorado.
Rio Grande is also one of my favorites, is black and white and has Maureen O'Hara as John Wayne's wife.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||I agree with the OP||
Tin Star was a great movie.
A couple that come to my mind: The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence starring John Wayne, James Stewart and Lee Marvin and
How the West Was Won starring just about everyone.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||To generate interest||
you could conduct a poll for the readership to vote who they think will win at the end of the year and publish the results.
Each person picking the actual winner could be awarded, say, 1,000 MGoPoints (or less if you don't think the blog could afford it).
|4 weeks 3 days ago||My only reservation about the series||
is that since it is a competition you all should come up with some kind of objective measure to determine the winner.
The only thing I can think of is assign a point value for players that make All-American (1st team so many points, 2nd team a few less point, etc) and All-Big Ten (fewer than All-American, but also with descending points for 1st team, 2nd team, etc.). Each position is accounted for and get you points as opposed to other systems that only skill position players really matter.
Yeah I know it's not totally objective as it is assigning arbitrary number points to specific award that is a result of a vote, but I think it would be an improvement. I mentioned this last year.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||I also agree that Jr Henson||
I also agree that Jr Henson was better than any year that Tom Brady had at Michigan.
While Brady was very good at Michigan (All Big Ten honorable mention twice), I've often wondered here on the blog if a lot of people's memories of Tom Brady at Michigan aren't clouded by NFL Tom Brady.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||When your most recent data||
When your most recent data point is 12 years and 2 coaching staffs removed from the current situation, then you probably don't have a relevant data set.
Looking at what Harbaugh did at Stanford with 1st time starters might be a little more relevant, but probably not by much.
Looking at just the QB position misses so much. I think the season is going to come down to how well the offense "gels" (offensive line, really) and injuries, or the lack thereof. Two games on the schedule are likely going to determine the coming season.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||My preference is||
either "Urban Meyer" or "OSU Coach Meyer," or whatever, not "Urbs," "Urbz," or any other stupid, lazy permutation.

She got it because of her beauty.
She's serious eye-candy.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Well, at least||
your hair is perfect.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||You worry too much.||
Michigan, the winningest program in college football, already has a target on their back. Michigan has been and always will get every team's best shot. These quotes and things by Harbaugh change absolutely nothing.
Except perhaps to give our own team a little added confidence and swagger. Teams tend to be a reflection of their coach.

Probably Googling for Dicks too much. Clear your search history and you should be good.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||I'll preface by saying I know little about soccer rules.||
I was trying to introduce as little as possible in the way of new rules or affecting the outcome of the game (which the refs tend to want to avoid) while discouraging the undesired player behavior. I assume that an injured player could be substituted, and thus treating a player acting like he was seriously injured would be a reasonable response.
In short, if a player feigns serious injury, the ref is totally justified in feigning serious concern for the player's health by benching him. I don't like Brian's yellow card idea as it requires a ref to make the decision that a player is faking. The beauty of my solution is that the ref "believes" the player's act and accordingly takes responsible action to ensure the "protection" of that player.
Are there temporary 5-minute penalties in soccer, and do players come back on the field like they do in hockey, while play is going on?
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Number 7 - faking injuries.||
For the "protection" of that "injured" player, a substitution should be required and the "injured" player should be forced to sit out the rest of the game.
No penalties have been given and the game continues with the same # of players on the field. All that player faking an injury accomplished is removing himself from the field. Only has himself to blame by being so convincing.
The referee's judgement can't really be questioned - the player faked an injury, and it was believed.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Excellent||
Just my opinion, but I think this should be front-paged.

I don't wanna see their junk.

He offered lunch, but let him go to the French Laundry with York's wife for dinner!
Shoulda taken York to Burger King.
