QV := Quick Visit
But both teams made a quick visit "down under" to Sydney.

I'm looking forward to 1902 Rose Bowl MVP Neil Snow's appearance and whether the Wistert brothers are recognized individually or lumped together in a triple entry.

... could be someone who thinks 23 is too low for Dan Dierdorf.

the maillot jaunt is French for yellow shirt (well, jersey).

According to National Geographic, the seven continents are Asia, Africa, North America, South America, Europe, Australia, and Antarctica. Oceania is the collective name for the islands of the Pacific Ocean, including Hawaii, New Zealand, French Polynesia; but Oceania is not a continent. A resident of Oceania would need to seven visits to visit all the continents.

I feel your infinite pain.

I'm pretty sure that all of Nike's factories are overseas. Corporate headquarters are in Beaverton, Oregon; all manufacturing is done offshore due to lower labor costs which offset the transportation costs.

That's mansome with a skinny M: #Mansome.

Start adding #mansome to in-game tweets and you'll have a new entry in the thesaurus faster than you can say "starchitect."

Thanks for your contribution to UM fandom.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Damn, that's too bad.||
Every parent's nightmare, so sad.

but Oklahoma State did !?! Makes me think Oklahoma didn't offer.

I wish I had read more poetry, especially Robert Frost.

You can’t teach his length his length ...
But if anyone can, Harbaugh can.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Great series.||
Mickey Lolich went 3-0 (all complete games) to earn MVP. Denny McLain, 31-6 in the regular season, was 1-2 with Tigers scoring only 1 run in the two losses (and 13 runs in the game 6 win).
Bob Gibson was unreal on the mound for the cards until he and Lolich met in game 7.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Oh that fumble!||
He had the yardage for the first down, Michigan could have run out the clock.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Ouch.||
That one still hurts, although wins in '96 and '97 helped.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||1960 World Series||
Bill Mazeroski's homerun in the bottom of the 9th to win game 7 and the series from those arrogant Yankees. Now we'd call it a walk-off homer, but that phase was still in the future 56 years ago.

as long as Mark Hollis heads up the MSU Athletic Dept. But that's just my opinion.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Agree on geographic diversity;||
follow up the satellite camp visits with a road trip & you have compelling experiences. Of course, you have to win the games ...

I believe that's a direct quote from Bo, though I can't recall the context just now.

25 years at the Star-Telegram; now just one of the former mainstream sports journalists circling the drain ...
.. so he starts writing fiction in a garbled, nonsensical fashion.

at his most annoying: "You're looking *LIVE* at the Los Angeles Coliseum ..."
How does he know I haven't taped the game?

Oregon has no sales tax, so it depends more heavily on its income and property taxes. Makes it tough on retirees, many of whom limit purchases but can't avoid the two primary forms of taxation. Washington state has sales tax and lower income and property taxes.
On the other hand, having lived in Oregon since 1980, I must say the quality of life is fantastic.
