"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."

These Atlanda Braves stadiums are such a giant waste of money. Turner Field is still basically new. The first baseball season there was 1997. (For reference, the first baseball season at Comerica was in 2000)

I have doubts that a hockey team in Vegas would succeed. Obviously it's a new market for a hockey (or any sports) team, which could lead to some initial excitement. But I doubt the residents of Vegas know much about ice hockey and there are plenty of other things to do in that city once the newness wears off.
It has potential to be like another Phoenix. A group of loyal fans, but not enough to support a franchise.

A hot and ready isn't inedible (obviously I have high standards).
If I'm in a hurry and want cheap food, it's an option.

I am very pleased with what Hackett has done in his short time as AD. Thinking about the situation the athletic department was in last fall, I have gained more confidence in President Schlissel for choosing Hackett. Many did not trust Schlissel to pick the right AD because his focus on academics. This hire has shown that, even though Schlissel doesn't place great emphasis on college athletics, he is a good judge of character and chose the right man to lead the department out of last fall's tire fire.

In terms of stadium-to-field proportions, I imagine football at Bristol would be close to hockey at Michigan Stadium. It would be more of an spectacle than a real football game. Plus you would honestly need binoculars to see anything.
I for one would rather have a home-and-home than a neutral site matchup, and I'm glad Hackett has said as much too.

You're going to do a half ironman and your biggest concern is driving through Columbus? I'm sure you will be fine. Best of luck at the race.
I would love to do an ironman someday - except I really can't swim all that well. I'm apparantly not as bouyant as I should be.

My first thought was to outline the numbers in maize too.
But then again, that might look a bit like Notre Dame.

Do I want a home or away jersey? I can't decide.

It's great that the tigers are competing year in and year out.
It wasn't that long ago that the tigers would start the season on pace for 0-162. Thank god that's over with.

Maybe the comparison was bad... I'm not a sabers fan and don't know all the details, but my co-worker is and we'be been talking about this a bit. he has a slightly different outlook about the team and the owner, though he's a Mets fan too so maybe he just has a jaded outlook about his sports team.

If I had to compare, I think Buffalo is more similar to the Dave Brandon or Jed York situation that a coach would never want to be a part of.
Bufallo got a new owner a few years back who came in, spent a lot of money, made expensive acquisitions, and sold people off... And obviously none of it worked because the sabers are still terrible. His next strategy seems to be tank to get the next "Sidney Crosby" to save his organization.
I would much rather work for Illich and Ken Holland than deal with an owner trying to tweak and control everything.

Buffalo fans have been actively rooting against their team for months. They say it's there only hope.

I just had a co-worker here in New York tell me that Buffalo(!) fans are pushing to get Babcock.
The sabers have been purposely tanking so they can get the top draft pick. I wouldn't want to coach a team with that kind of culture.

I only look at the Detroit News, never the Free Press.
This is sad. SE Michigan is going to be left with the Freep and MLive.

I would suggest putting the legend numbers / names on the flags at the top of the bowl in the north and south endzones. They would be honored on display every game day.

I hate the penguins.
There is a guy in my office who is originally from Montreal but won't root for the habs, because honestly who would. Instead he has adopted the penguins as his team. I know I'm going to hear something from him tomorrow about this game.

I don't know... I doubt this is some kind of cheating scheme planned in advance by the entire Pats organization. Probably just a couple of clever equipment managers who didn't even consider it "cheating" at the time.
