Impaling on the court...and imPalin' afterwards

The notion that there's a big difference between football and track speed is ridiculously misguided, at least when comparing NFL combine results with the time it takes a sprinter to hit 40 yards in a 100m dash.

Whether or not symptoms developed, CTE pathology has definitely been found amongst people at very young ages who incurred head injuries playing football. And that includes teenagers. ( https://www.bu.edu/cte/our-research/case-studies/18-year-old/ )

I sure as shit regret not being aware of Cliff's Notes before reading The Scarlet Letter in 9th grade

In fairness to Bob, he evidently doesn't have the EUTM gene. But that's survival of the fittest for ya.

|7 weeks 1 day ago||That's very true and||
That's very true and underscores the importance of a good QB/OL relationship. Obviously if they're close buddies it helps the QB be less prone to shaking in his boots when he drops back.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||You definitely answered part||
You definitely answered part of your question. Simply from a financial POV, it's very costly to incarcerate someone and subsequently limit their employment prospects (less income tax collected).
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Except the rule isn't simple,||
Except the rule isn't simple, at least not for players who might be dealing with chronic pain, yet are also worried about opioid/painkiller dependency. Even worse is the dilemma faced by those with a family history suggestive of an inherent predisposition for addiction.

To be fair, some games are actually the polar opposite of mindless. Playing Tetris, for example, can induce the growth of neurons, improve cognition, and literally make your brain thicker. Could also help delay Alzheimer's.....which is pretty much a ticking time bomb with the potential for ugly/widespread epidemiological and emotional and economic implications.

Harbaugh probably seems wildly insane to people because it's hard to comprehend his competitive drive or rationalize things like smearing a player's blood on his face. But it's part of why he's amongst the best coaches. Now, this is some bizarre stuff.

Especially with those foot injuries. I mean, how the hell does Walton get something so damn easy to prevent like turf toe??????
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Mostly just been thinking||
Mostly just been thinking about what the chances for economic catastrophe within a few years could be, now that we've sunk to the point where presidential campaigning is basically the equivalent of silly, back-and-forth high school drama.

Nashville would also be a great place to go for away games

That Nashville is a city with an appreciation for progressive thinking, along with historical and cultural values not limited to the 19th century "southern way of life," is further reason why I think Vanderbilt would be a good fit for the B1G (and exponentially better than Rutgers).

If humans had actually been so idiotic and lacking in foresight to drop a thousand nukes on each other without flinching, the superiorly intelligent aliens wouldn't have disabled shit.

Kinda ironic, no?

Especially since aerial views probably won't appear as anything special. More likely to resemble what you'd expect of a toddler playing with red, yellow, black and blue colored finger paints.

"Hey Adam, here's a lifetime supply of catnip for Fluffy. And let me tell you, she's gonna love it. This is grade A shit we got." -SEC bagman

Unfortunately with the SEC, and media figures who love twerking all over that conference, some will probably blow up this story with all their might.

That's the 3rd time I think I've heard Chris Webber mention Rudy Tomjanovich in this series. Almost makes me wonder if some of that could be a little piece of Michigan in his heart.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||What's probably most||
What's probably most incredible to me is that at Omaha, the first wave of troops assumed 100+ "swimming" tanks (which ended up sinking) would be right there with them to provide cover. Yet somehow these guys made it several hundred yards up the beach amidst a monsoon of bullets and mortars.

That makes him part of the 4% of WWII veterans still around.

My mirror-touch synesthesia has me feeling it at this very moment. I can confirm it's quite sexy.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||Assuming you mean bipolar||
Assuming you mean bipolar disorder in its literal sense, and if your wife hasn't yet found a suitable treatment, there are some newer, mostly experimental options to consider. Ketamine (and, to a lesser extent, scopolamine) infusions have done wonders for people, but can be fairly expensive. Neuromodulation treatments like rTMS and ECT are safe/effective, and more likely covered by insurance, but for those you gotta give it a few weeks to determine if there's much benefit.

If you don't like red, chances are disdain for OSU isn't the only reason. According to colorpsychology.org, it's by nature a color that provokes anger, aggressive behavior, stress and higher BP.
