Our granite countertop. When we remodeled our kitchen a few years ago, we labored over which type of countertop to install more than anything else. It will be the quarterback of the kitchen remodel, so I feel for you, as I know the choices you face. You have many good options, but it's delicate, because you must live with your decision for a VERY long time. For my wife and I, it came down to the top two qbs in camp. Brady or Henson. Henson (quartz) was the latest and greatest new kid in town, but came at a higher cost. Quartz is a hard natural mineral but the actual countertop is artificial; flashes of natural brilliance embedded in mainly epoxy (Steinbrenner?) or some type of contaminant. While initially beautiful to the lusting eye, upon closer examination, it will break your heart. There's no loyalty or love of art in a quartz countertop. Its appears rich at first sight, but soon the pattern is revealed to be redundant and boring. While "seemingly" low maintenance, the work will be looking at the same picture, inch by inch, day after day. The disappointment of this largely artificial piece of work will set in with the betrayal of interesting.
Granite (Brady) on the other hand, is the real article. All natural, hardened stone, formed under heat and pressure from the hands of time. Each slab is cut from the good earth in one piece, strikingly different than the last. Once installed and polished, it has a soothing calm of presence. It truly radiates a strength and beauty all its own. Unique in every way. One of a kind. Built from the ground up. A masterpiece of artwork from Mother Nature herself. Every square inch a different brushstroke than the last.
I was once told that the beauty of granite is in its depth. Every square inch of granite is truly deep with colors and specks of minerals found only in nature. While you look AT quartz, you look INTO granite. Much like seeing a laminate countertop, vs admiring a Rembrandt.
Or to be more precise... GLANCING at Henson vs STARING at Brady... for a very very long time.
But hey, that's just my take. Maybe not so OT after all.
P.S. If wiping your dining room table is a nonissue, then polishing granite is exactly the same effort; except only once or twice a year. WELL worth it!
Good luck with your decision! And GO BLUE!!!

Mo money. This is boxing. Logic has nothing to do with it. Paydays matter. Mayweather could fulfill his contract with CBS Sports/Showtime if he loses this first one and wins a rematch in say 6 months to a year. Then HBO would re-enter the picture in the bid to re-sign Mayweather. Huge money for Money, even before the third and decisive rubber match. Who knows how much could be made in a series of matches like this? Boxing is a business. Even a shady one, perhaps.

last night 8-1; Manny over Floyd in 12; and Jaylen Brown commits to Michigan next Tuesday. There's my Trifecta.

but picking Pacman over Mayweather in 12 round decision. Then a rematch.

So sorry to see him have the cushion pulled out from under him. Maybe he can land one of those second tier autoworker jobs he's been trumpeting for so long now.

Loved the line: "There's nothing political about how we feed our families". The best player is going to play...

I logged in just to downvote your dumb ass. There's a big difference between reasons and excuses! Try re-reading the post (ESPECIALLY THE PART BRIAN WROTE ABOUT THE 334th MOST EXPERIENCED TEAM IN THE COUNTRY). Sheesh.

Seems personal, though. Especially since you called someone a "tool" in Nov. 2011. Maybe I'm just not clear about your standards for people other than yourself on this blog (especially a blog where the author tags someone as "a piece of **** human being"). Anyway, maybe we can agree to....Go Blue!

Staying inside and need some entertaining Netflix Movie ideas. Not into Horror or Sci-Fi. Any other suggestions apprectiated!

DVR set for Monday 6pm on ESPNU. This story reminds us to count our blessings. Austin Hatch is an inspiration! John Belein is a shining example of an honorable man, whose integrity shines like a diamond in what can be a coal mine of coaching ethics. Thanks to ESPN for this exposure and Baba Booey for the reminder.
