If you're at liberty to say... what type of cancer? Just curious...
|1 week 1 day ago||When I saw this comment I first thought||
"Wow, I'm going to feel old when people start saying that about 9/11." And then I remembered that the current crop of recruits was 3 or 4 years old in 2001, and in all likelihood they do not vividly remember 9/11.

Not. Actually unless you're a wine afficionado you may find Napa boring after a couple hours. There's a lot to do is SF though... Golden Gate Park is a top spot (check out the Japanese Tea Garden or the California Academy of Sciences) and if you're there on a Saturday morning check out the Ferry Plaza Farmer's market. Not much to do in Napa other than taste wine and go on tours... Artesa has some nice views and a decent price.

This was posted in December...
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Umm the difference there...||
is that that thread was complaining about a handful of various dings and sprains, while this one is talking about 9 ACL tears in 2 years...
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Unfortunately that means next to nothing||
You actually don't even need your ACLs to get around in day-to-day life. Your ACLs are required for quick, lateral movements - a common event in the sports world, but not if you're just walking around. Older people with ACL tears quite often don't even get surgery.

I believe there was a thread about this and I don't know if it's already been mentioned here but there was a NYT article about Stanford adopting a conditioning program that focuses on flexibility and balance...
9 ACL tears in basically 2 years is absurd. And anyone who attributes it to just bad luck is deluding themselves.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I've totally given up||
on trying to understand what constitutes a foul in college bball. Might as well just flip a coin.

Dakich straightup admits his mancrush on Kraft
|3 weeks 4 days ago||So happy they opened a Costco in A2||
I go all the time for the beer even though I don't have a membership. Great place to get La Fin du Monde and Three Philosophers...
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Thanks for the suggestions||
I'll have to look into those in the future...
California beer is great, but I do have a slight preference for stouts, and have yet to find anything better than Expedition or KBS.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||What are your favorites then?||
I was in California this summer, and Russian River and Alesmith are what everyone raved about whenever I asked, but I found Pliny and Speedway to be somewhat overrated. Still very good... but I'm curious to know what you consider the top brews.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Look on their website for when it's on sale||
You can typically get a few dollars off if you go on the right week... otherwise you will be pay close to full price. But when it's on sale it's a good deal.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||No, I couldn't care less||
However, I am annoyed by the elitist attitude everyone here takes about people being passionate. I read the open thread. It wasn't even bad.
It's like when Brian got dissed on twitter for caring about the football team. There are just people out there who seem to get a rise from pretending to be "above" everybody else.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||First of all, I'm not even the one who's mad||
I'm just calling out the self-righteous elitists who keep acting like they're better than everyone else because they claim to be able to keep a cool head while posting on an internet board about a basketball game. Quite frankly, the people who are being unreasonable here are the ones bitching about other people bitching.
And what is with this cutesy "kids throwing a ball at a basket" crap? Fans are passionate. Fucking welcome to sports.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||"I stopped going to open threads years ago"||
Now, I just go to the threads complaining about the open threads, so that I can complain about people complaining about the team in the open thread.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||The Big Ten Title was always a pipe dream||
They are just crashing back to earth and meeting everyone's original expectations. If they had McGary it'd be a different story.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||No. There are no tie-breakers||
I'm sorry but how do people not know this, considering that's exactly what happened two years ago when we won a share of the championship? Not to mention, that's how it's always been since the beginning of time, and it's also how it was in football until a few years ago.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Check my post history||
I never even insulted anyone. I am just sick and fucking tired of the self-righteous preachers on this board acting like it's a big deal and totally unreasonable for people to be pissed off that the basketball team had a shit game today.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Oh my gosh.||
Guys, someone on the internet is mad that their favorite basketball team lost by 18 today. Can you believe that? I never get mad about anything. Good thing I'm here to give them a sanctimonious speech about how awful they are for complaining on an internet board.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||The self-righteousness on this board is unbearable||
The players do not give two fucks if some stupid internet poster says they suck. So why do you get your panties in a bunch over it? This is sports. People are going to get mad when the players for their favorite teams suck. You're the one bitching and moaning about other people bitching and moaning.
I wasn't even bashing anyone until the self-righteous, holier-than-thou preachers came out in full force in respone to a few people complaining about Michigan getting their asses handed to them by a mediocre Iowa team.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||If they play like crap||
the players are going to be bashed. They can deal with it. They are not kindergarteners. Obviously tweeting them or whatever is completely not okay but saying Stauskus and GRIII are sucking, on a random internet open thread, is not as outrageous as you're trying to make it.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||It would be different if he already led that lifestyle||
Clearly there was somewhat of a clash in values between Martin and his teammates. Clashes in values usually stem from a person's upbringing (and please don't play the "well there are exceptions" line... of course there are exceptions, but that's completely irrelevant here) What don't you understand about that?
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Okay well then I'll spell it out for you||
I am 100% serious when I say that the Dolphins' management screwed up and didn't do their homework on this situation. It played out very badly, and it could have been much worse. Clearly, Martin was extremely emotionally unstable by late October - how would you have feel about the situation if he had harmed himself rather than seeking professional help?
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Was he?||
Peer pressure is a powerful thing and things are not always as they seem. Considering Martin felt so distraught by late October that he went so far as to check himself into a mental hospital, I'm guessing his reservations went a bit farther back than you're assuming.
You're just denying the obvious, which is that the Dolphins management didn't do their homework on this. If they had, they wouldn't be down two starting offensive linemen now, would they?
|4 weeks 4 days ago||If you can't see how that is a disgusting lifestyle||
then I have nothing to say to you.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Are you kidding me?||
The Dolphins are the ones who knowingly drafted a Stanford-educated son of two Harvard graduates who went to private school his whole life, and then sat and watched as a bunch of goons went and tried to suck the guy into a disgusting lifestyle, all in the name of... what? brotherhood and comraderie? This is really more like your boss sending Mother Theresa on a booze cruise with Ozzy Osbourne and then acting surprised when she tries to swim to shore...
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Was it Martin who threw Incognito under the bus though?||
I'm actually not very familiar with how this all played out. Who exactly broke the story? Seems to me like Martin probably would have rather seen the whole incident blow over. Incognito definitely got thrown under the bus, but it's hard for me to feel very sorry for a guy promoting that type of putrid lifestyle.
In the end though, I'd say it's the Dolphin's management who look the worst in all this. They're the ones who brought in an upstanding young Stanford graduate and tried to turn him into a criminal, using Incognito as a Stooge. The whole staff knew exactly what was going on, but seemed to think it would just make Martin somehow "tougher" are promote comraderie.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Except for the MSU-Notre Dame game||
in which the refs DID have the balls to call PI every time it came up. And yet, when that happens, apparently all you have to do is whine and complain about it and argue that it's IMPOSSIBLE for a team to have 15 PI penalties in one game... and everyone who didn't watch the game will believe you. Even though 14/15 of those penalties were absolutely legit, and you shouldn't get the benefit of the doubt on that last one when you're playing that way.
