He enjoyed male fans as well. Not that there is anything wrong with that.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Its time for Fran Tarkenton to shuffle off||
Given the way Stabler lived his life its amazing he lasted this long.
I wonder if Kenny's switch-hitting made it into his book.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||kinda sorta||
Well, the flexbone is *kinda* like the wishbone. Its really a cross between the wishbone & run-n-shoot. These days the R&S portion of the attack isn't run so much. But when the scheme was first used at Hawaii 25 years ago the shoot was a significant factor.
There are other differences as well. In the typical wishbone the fullback lines up much closer to the QB than the B back does in the flex. As a result the physical profile of a B back often looks much different than the traditional bone fullback.

First 20 mins of Manos are epic. Goes kinda downhill from there.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Muppets forever||
Link Hogthrob and Dr Strangepork *rule*.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||a little worried||
I hope there is money in the budget for a hearing aid, because this kid has a hard time hearing the whistle.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||icing on the cake||
Local media covered SC media reaction post-game. Complete shock and complete respect. They thought Jokisch was a beast.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||awesome||
Goldens are great. Be careful with food; that golden goodness masks a voracious appetite.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||a little tidbit||
And that splitter enabled Roger to become just the 2nd manager in history to take a team from 100+ losses to > 0.500 in his first season.
The best manager in history, Billy Martin, did it *3* times.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||some things have improved||
The Pointes do have more interesting restaurants than when I grew up there. Way more.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||true but.....||
In many ways RO does indeed have more going for it. But strictly on the subject of schools Berkley is definitely in better shape.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Woods, Farms, Park, Shore & City||
There are 5 Pointes. And they're a tad more diverse than you think.
And after the real estate crash, quite a bit more diverse
|11 weeks 4 days ago||there is an alternative||
Schools are decent in Berkley.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||I can see that||
East of Woodward a couple blocks south of 9 used to have a pretty high WT quotient. There used to be a decent sweet spot that started maybe 3 blocks south of 9 and went to a little south of 8 1/2.
Never got too familiar with the west side just south of 9. Really use to love the neighborhoods northwest of 9 & Woodward.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||what neighborhood?||
That might depend on the specific block in Ferndale. Close to RO Township? Not good. Close to 8 Mile? Not good. And you wouldn't believe it but there is some crime right on 9 Mile steps from the police station.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||not so fast||
Schools in B'ham ain't what they used to be, depending on the building.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Fashionable. Fabulous. Funky. Most of the time.||
There is definitely a hipster happening in Ferndale. But the schools..... depending on the building violence can be a problem.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||I hate this||
Darn it, its Grosse *Pointe*.
The Woods is nice, but unfortunately its not quite as nice as it was a generation ago.
Royal Oak? Schools are very uneven.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||ftw||
|12 weeks 1 day ago||its a trap!||
Best listed alternative to Fighting Sioux? Admiral Ackbar of course. Ole Miss' loss could have been UND's gain.
|14 weeks 2 days ago||been there||
I gotcha. I was 7 or 8 and went with the family to a well-known ice cream place in Traverse City. Its Friday, warm, tourist season. Like the last Friday in June. Threw up right in the middle of the crowd just moments after getting daquiri ice. Absolutely cleared the place out within 90 seconds.
Dad consoled me in the car afterwards by explaining how the owner had just a dozen weekends to make enough money for the rest of the year.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||not fair||
Any thoughts of non-play action aggression were long ago choked out of Davis by Ferentz.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||but your way works too||
I think this is even better learned.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||better talent than App State||
That Eastern Washington squad was no joke. They would have been pretty good in FBS.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||waitaminute||
Ball State was uber spready. SDSU not so much.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||pot meet kettle||
Well, if they are afraid of war porn make sure they don't read Ibn Ishaq.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||follow the money||
Its less about morning/afternoon and more about budgets. The News had deeper pockets. Always did. And a few years before the JOA the ENA started a morning edition to compete directly with Freep. It cost a ton but was steadily eating the Freep away.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||um, no||
Back in the old days DN had a larger staff for more in-depth stories. A few times per year the Sunday edition would go all out on a subject that kicked off a weeklong series. There was detail you couldn't get anywhere else. Freep could never hang with that.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||snatching defeat from the jaws of victory||
The Evening News Association should never have signed the JOA. They had the Freep on the ropes. A couple more years and it would have been the Freep folding up shop.
