|2 days 12 hours ago||I have two Maine Coons||
and they are terrific. The boy turned out to be more "freshman Steve Breaston" when I thought I was getting "senior Gabe Watson" but I love him anyway. I don't even begrudge him the massive vet bill I had to pay just after his tenth birthday this month.
My browser won't let me post pics. Boy is a brown tabby and his mom is a silver tabby. They rule.
|2 days 12 hours ago||Yes, actual babies do a lot more of that.||
Also they cry really loud and they throw up, which is nasty.
The simulator can't match the real thing.
If they can figure out how to simulate staying at home with a crying, fluid/solid-emitting baby while your friends go out and party, that might work.

We don't even want you for $0. Oof.
The UNC qb is from my town and I used to work with his dad. He deserves to be Beckman-free, just like every other NCAA athlete.

is "the official fight song" of the University of Illinois. It's shorter and more up-tempo than "Illinois Loyalty," which I thought was their fight song. Think of it as their Varsity vs The Victors.
Yeah, I had never heard of it either.
The E stands for Emesis.

It was better when I thought it was an acronym he made up just for that jumble of themes. You'd think I would know the fight song of our chief rival, Illinois.
It stands for something.
|4 days 13 hours ago||They have two at the Columbus Zoo, of all places||
I've been there a few times and they're always sleeping. One of them was sleeping on its back with its legs splayed, only its lower half visible, as if to say "Hey Columbus, here's my junk."
|4 days 16 hours ago||Jake Ryan or Kenny Demens||
A playmaking standard linebacker would take this defense to 11. Maybe the ones we have will do the trick.

|1 week 3 days ago||UCF played at Stanford last year||
The Wikipedia page asserts: "The trip represents the longest travel for any FBS team during the 2015 season, at 2,427 miles."
I suppose it's a given that they exclude games involving Hawaii, where the shortest trip was Fresno State's visit to Honolulu (2,500+ miles as the crow flies).
|1 week 3 days ago||Does Matt Rhule go to Geno's or Pat's?||
The comment in Etc. mentions the Coach And Four (where Bo and I used to get our haircuts), but the ESPN article says Jim goes to the State Street Barber Shop.
I admit I had to look up who Temple's coach was. Nice job winning at Penn State, Mr. Rhule.
Also, the "Goodnight Gorilla" paragraph was sublime.
|1 week 3 days ago||I created a QB like that a few generations ago on Playstation||
Michigan's QB (aka Gigante) was 6'9" 399 and wore a single-bar facemask with a tinted visor. He was not very mobile but very hard to tackle.
|1 week 5 days ago||Why didn't you run the toss sweep on fourth down?||
I'm asking for a friend (Mike DeBord).
That would totally work against a team coached by James Franklin. Or if MSU rehired Bobby Williams or John L. (plz plz plz)

I watched that game at my parents' home in Duluth.
They lived there from 1998-2002.

MSU is doing well because they have found good talent that was undervalued by other schools, played the underdog/disrespect card like a boss, worked hard, planned well, and made good in-game decisions. These aren't the Sparty No teams of John L or Bobby Williams. They're not perfect but they've been darn good.
We had them beat and made a crucial mistake, of which they took full advantage and won. That should be excellent motivation for our whole program going in to the matchup this year.

Are all height and weight losses good too?

Is it wrong for me to hope that we can get an OMG ILB in this class? He need not be shirtless.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Was it an Audi 5000?||
Hundreds of presumably sober Americans pressed the wrong pedal in their early 80s Audis. The NHTSA was too nice to blame the drivers.

Glen Rice 34 points.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||I watched at BW3 in Cleveland Heights||
with a bunch of Michigan graduates, mostly those enrolled in med school at CWRU. It was a thrilling game. Watching the end of the Nebraska game was memorable as well.
I remember seeing a bumper sticker with the AP Poll:
The one I saw had Missouri crossed out and replaced with "Sex."
|6 weeks 3 days ago||I lead a quiet, abstemious life||
And you crazy people are lucky to be alive.
I was in the backseat of a Chevy Citation as a kid. That sounds bad enough, but to add to the story, my mom was driving down a hill that was icy. The brakes locked up and the car spun 360 and smashed into a large stone pillar, impact was just behind the driver's side front wheel. I believe Mom broke her window with her head. At the bottom of the hill was a very busy main road. If we hadn't stopped on the hill we would have ended up in the path of 40mph traffic.
On my birthday a few years ago I was lighting a recalcitrant barbecue grill at my in-laws'. There was a great "whump" sound and flames shot up. So I probably wouldn't have died but I might have burned my face off if I hadn't been leaning slightly back.
Numerous near-misses on the road but nothing like the dramatic scenes posted above.
Be careful out there, everybody.

I hated confined spaces. The dullest regs ever. But they're written for a reason. Good gravy.

He's going to get autobenched a lot if he doesn't dial that back.

They got 8 of the top 63, more than any other school.
