|5 hours 4 min ago||I would have expected||
the backup team to be "TC" or "Rick."
|8 hours 40 min ago||This came to mind||
"There's nothing more exhilarating than pointing out the shortcomings of others, is there?"
|9 hours 35 min ago||One person cannot be everywhere||
I'm in HR, so your interviewers asked me to fill in for you in your absence.
Good luck with your candidacy.
|11 hours 20 min ago||Ummmm||
|12 hours 32 min ago||Low five, everybody||
|12 hours 49 min ago||She seems nice||
This gif is better than anything about Jim Rome ever was or shall be.
|1 day 10 hours ago||Y'all are overlooking the biggest issue here||
LSU's president's name is F. King Alexander? Do U C what I see when looking at that name?
Apparently his first name is Fieldon.
His mom was from Paint Lick, Kentucky.
I could go on.

He's with our Shon Morris. Shon, what do you have for us?
|2 days 6 hours ago||Probably true, but are there any teams that are title contenders||
primarily because of their head coach rather than their star players?
I think a coach can ruin a talented team's chances several different ways, but I doubt a coach can turn a low-talent team into NBA champions.

|4 days 6 hours ago||So much good stuff there||
Beyond what others have already mentioned.
The woman in the Auburn jammies in the third row and her delayed Home Alone reaction to the posterboard sign that someone threw.
The woman behind her shouting FU just before gettin knocked forward.
The blonde in the third row reacting to the posterboard as if she saw a mouse.
Beirdo the Weirdo at the scorer's table grinning throughout.
Al Glick's grandfather in the front row next to Mr. "What a Jackass," noticing nothing.
Lord Middlefinger dashing in from our left after Henderson had started to back up.

If my team's rivals have higher attendance, then it doesn't mean anything.
|4 days 8 hours ago||The Shutdown Fullback Hooray for Michigan episode||
was one of the best things on the internet. I miss Shutdown Fullback.
Up the middle. Every single time.

There's a Big House over yonder
Well, I ain't been home to see my daddy,
Wait a minute something's wrong baby,

His motion could provide the electricity for a small city.
|4 days 12 hours ago||I'll take Harbaugh's kind of clinically insane all day||
And so would Boone. Some quotes from an October 2012 article about Boone, then in his fourth season with the 49ers:
Alex' mother, Amy Boone:
49ers coach Jim Harbaugh:
|4 days 12 hours ago||I cherish the memory of that ex-OSU player who said||
that Boren had 1% body fat. That would be three pounds of fat, apparently all of which hung in full view, under his chin.
We can argue about the missteps of the Rodriguez era forever (and doubtless we will) but I think we can agree that Justin Boren acted like a tool.
I believe that after Boren set fire to the bridge on the way out of town, he said he didn't want to speak publicly about it anymore, but that more details would come out later. He's got plenty of time on his hands to write a book now. I think snowplowing season is done in Columbus.

I always pay attention to how job candidates treat the receptionist. Some of them are nasty or rude and don't think that's a problem. I disagree.
McHenry made this situation about her and the social distance between her job and that of the clerk. It's unfortunate when people think it's more important who you are than how you behave. Hell, hasn't she ever watched Batman Begins?
|1 week 12 hours ago||A toast to all of y'all||
|1 week 13 hours ago||Maybe she was just filling in for a friend||
but I think this situation puts the cap on her dental career.
|1 week 22 hours ago||We were looking at that area for a stay two years ago||
Found that flat rental in Southwark was a much better deal, maybe 40% cheaper. They had to move us to a different building due to renovations, so the walk from London Bridge station was longer than expected (~10 min vs 2 min) but it was fine. Still very close to central London.
The Natural History Museum in South Kensington is magnificent and admission is free (donations encouraged). Really wonderful museum.
Climb to the stone gallery at the top of the St. Paul's dome if you can handle it. Great views of the city.
London Eye is the mother of all ferris wheels.

|1 week 2 days ago||I figured it was Bill Curry||
He and Dave Barnette were a great broadcast team. Of course UM was really good during that era, so that probably boosts my perception of them.
|1 week 2 days ago||I think this is what my 4yo son pictures happening||
when our neighbor's 90lb black lab comes charging toward him. Luckily the dog is Deion Sanders-like when it comes to contact, he always veers away at the last second.
|1 week 2 days ago||Speaking of CWebb||
I recently learned that a colleague of mine is best friend's with the cousin of Mrs. CWebb. My colleague met Chris when he was in town covering an NBA game for TNT. My relationship with the colleague isn't strong enough that I would expect to meet Chris myself, which I suppose is just as well. I wonder what his reaction would be to a Michigan grad whose time in Ann Arbor overlapped with his. Could we really swap cool stories bro while ignoring the fish sandwich-shaped elephant in the room?
|1 week 3 days ago||The Patriots and Browns are at opposite poles||
One has had the same owner, head coach, and starting QB (one injury year excepted) for the past 14 years, and all three do a superb job. The Browns have had turnover in each of those three roles over the same span, astounding turnover in the case of the QB position, and with rare exceptions, incompetence has reigned.
But of course the Browns have changed their uniforms to incorporate a brighter orange, so that will probably take care of everything.
I am less interested in the other three sports but will take a stab:
NBA: best Spurs, worst Timberwolves
MLB: best Red Sox, worst Marlins (despite their two titles, f-in Jose Mesa)
NHL: best Red Wings, worst Coyotes
|1 week 3 days ago||I know it's just one letter||
But I'm surprised by the number of people who should know better (health care workers, my fellow HR professionals) that get the initials wrong.
