Of course the bar sucks for beer. But what are you looking for? Craft beers and hipsters or girls in scantily dressed clothing?

but I'm hoping less than the best for him. He ruined many things at UM, including many careers. And he walked away with millions.

NBC Sports channel during the day. They show all of those events/sports.

Bolt does it more for a show, and Gatlin was trying to be the 2nd qualifier with using the least amount of energy. He did't see the guy in the lane 8.

But I love the summer olympics. I always have since I was a kid. A lot of memorable events and there is something about it that means something deeper for me. I will watch as much of it as I can. I've already watched the Olympic trials in several events. My #1 love is UM football, but I could care less about college football. I won't watch an entire college football game that's not UM. But I will watch obscure events in the Olympics. Can't wait for it to start.

My son is not THAT good--i'm not sure where you got this from my post. He doesn't have the leverage of being the best player on the team. Bottom line right now: He likes soccer and wants to play. Rec was a disaster and club expects a lot of time to be on the team. Just saying that its not always the parents who are forcing kids to pick one sport.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||I'll chime in||
I don't think you can totally blame the parents for this. My guess is that you are not a parent or have kids in the 10-14 age group playing sports have no experience with this.
My experience with this: My son was not interested in sports until the World Cup in Brazil. Then for whatever reason, he really wanted to play soccer. He was 9. I signed him up for rec soccer and it was terrible. The "coach" we got was a mom who had no experience with soccer--this wasn't really the bad part. The bad part was she didn 't show up for 4 of the 8 games on Saturday mornings. She "overslept" for these games. If you can imagine, this led to many other issues.
To avoid this problem again, my son tried out for club soccer. He made the team. The thing about club soccer--and this is the point I'm getting at--is that THEY require the kid to spend a ton of time playing their sport. They are not flexible with a kid playing mulitple sports. The child has to try out every year, and if your child missed several practices because of other sports, they aren't making the team the next year--unless you have a junior Messi or something.
Speaking to other parents, most wish the club required LESS time from the kids so that kids could have other interests as well. Its not the parents pushing this from my experience.
sorry for spelling and grammar.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||that's cool.||
Good for them. But remember, slower greens is relative. Other players will also make a run as well.

Has he thought about wearing his school's helmet?

|12 weeks 2 days ago||The point I'm making is that...||
No U.S. soccer or maybe no soccer player ever was an athlete like Barry Sanders. I'm not saying take Barry from the Lions and have him play on the U.S. team with no soccer experience. That's idiotic. I'm saying that the U.S. sucks at soccer because all of its best athletes, primarily black athletes, don't play soccer at an early age and continue to play it as their only sport.
And I think that's the point that everyone is making but yourself.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||You will know your son is a D1 talent when...||
He's better than every kid his age and better than every--yes, every--kid 1 and 2 years his senior (in his given sport). And this is probably D1 "talent". Not meaning he will be a D1 athlete.
And when I say every kid his age, I mean in the area you live. For example, your kid is best soccer player in Washtenaw County and Metro Detroit for all 14, 15, and 16 year olds.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||ummm...If Barry Sanders||
played soccer, he would be the best ever.

I LOL'd on this site, but the "Waluigi" reference was funny. Well played good sir.
