So, by default, you can see how this disease has affected my family. One of his brothers, my grandfather, lived with us for a good stint of his time as this took hold of his life. Like many have already said here, it is tragic. The experience has shaped my life to always try and live in the moment and to be thankful for the time you have.

it is very nice and has a wow factor that the kids will always remember. It is also close to Centennial Olympic Park, the Aquarium and Wold of Coca Cola, if you are so inclined.

Did a search, did not come up.

and he falls to them for their second pick. This could be a positive.

Unfortunately, they were not able to pull out the win. My wife is a GT grad and she makes a great point about GT even being in contention with Georgia. Georgia is the major public university able to recruit the top talent from all over the country- GT is lucky to pull a few four stars here and there with mostly middling two and three star types. Says a lot about what Paul Johnson is doing with the program.

when I jumped off the couch, feverishly fist pumping at the end of the ND game, she was scared.
She will understand someday.

there are a lot of risks on your squad. Like any team, they could go well, but I am not high on your chances this year. Bowe, Bryant and Royal are all on really bad teams this year with very little support so they will get doubled up most games.
|6 years 22 weeks ago||Dude in my league dropped Marshawn Lynch....||
to pick up Jerious Norwood. Made my team much better with depth at RB later in the year. I have won twice in six years with a runner-up last year. I like my chances this season, especially when Lesean McCoy takes over for the (soon to be) injured Westbrook (sorry BW, I promise I do not wish you any ill will, I am just playing the odds).
|6 years 22 weeks ago||Everyone of my receivers....||
will be top 10 at the end of this year, book it. Roy Williams is a stud and Romo will air it out and be huge this year as well.

10 or 12 man league?

is ridiculous. To imply that Lloyd was some sort of intellectual because he quoted Kipling a few times, read Newsweek and tried to expand his players vocabulary through a word-of-the-day, is a stretch and quite frankly it gives way too much credit to his intellectual achievements. Lloyd was a coach first and foremost, it is not like he went Ivy League, or even U of M (Michigan, not Missouri, mind you), and his players were GS majors (or similar) in the majority as well.
I will take results over some illusory vision of intellectualism and present to you a fact- highest GPA in the history of Michigan football. More discipline. Higher expectations.
Rich Rod, at the age of 24, was the youngest college Head coach in the country at Age 24 at Salem College.
The man gets results and to somehow imply with Rich Rod at the helm you CANNOT HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO....makes you sound like a crab-ass A2 elitist (albeit a self described one), without a clue.
|6 years 23 weeks ago||Signed....||
unfortunately, I think this event was calculated and any attention they get for their fledgling paper, was part of the plan.
|6 years 23 weeks ago||Go Blue! to you as well,||
my good sir. I have never been this excited. Watched the presser, even more impressed with RR than before. I hope the team is All-In, and they put it to Western this weekend.
|6 years 23 weeks ago||Don't care.....||
if they have gone through the legal system and met their obligations to society, they should be free to earn a living. Would you rather these people end up as beggars, alcoholics on the street. In a lot of cases, sports is all they know and they have no other discernible skills.
Vick's crime cost him over a hundred million dollars, two years of his life and public scrutiny we can only imagine, let the man earn a living.
|6 years 24 weeks ago||Western Michigan's offense is better right now than Michigan's..||
them there's fighting words baldy, oh wait, so am I :(. Anyhow, we have what 10 days now until we see where we are at. I am keg standing the kool-aid at this point, I think the sports world is in for a rude awakening writing off our boys.
|6 years 24 weeks ago||One National Championship Rose Bowl (1997)....||
and the 2000 Citrus Bowl win over Auburn 31-28. Great stories surround both events and they will live on until Alzheimers takes full control over all 90 of my IQ points.
|6 years 24 weeks ago||In Millen's defense....||
how can you break something that was already a perennial doormat? He just carried on the tradition.
He never should have done the ESPN article on the Harley and all that, set himself up as a target. The GM needs to be behind the scenes, he tried to become a bit of a celebrity GM and it backfired on him.
|6 years 24 weeks ago||Decent offers...||
in a position of need. How is this any different than Robinson / Witty? I would take it and be happy to secure Grimes with a future potential contributor.
|6 years 24 weeks ago||Tigers get the win....||
Clete Thomas with the walkoff single. Great Win!
|6 years 24 weeks ago||Clete Thomas...||
Game over. Nice win.

|6 years 25 weeks ago||For the 1997 Championship game....||
four of us (two couples) drove to Pasadena cross country in a Honda Civic. The night before the big game (New Year's Eve), I partied with Sam Sword's older brother until the bars closed. Problem was, my girlfriend at the time, did not (more on this later). We slept in the stoop of a shop to be there for the start of the parade, which I caught the latter portion of, not even remembering how I ended up there in the first place.
Waking up to the smell of roses would have been sweet, were it not for the hard cement and one missing shoe.
My girlfriend was so pissed she sold my ticket to the game. I wandered around the stadium aimlessly, broke and without hope when a few people invited me to join their tailgate. Throughout the game, I kept walking up to the gate, trying to catch a glimpse. My drunken charm (annoying badgering), eventually worked and with two minutes left to go the guard working the gate showed mercy on my soul. I ran down the stairs right past my soon to be ex girlfriend and rushed the field to celebrate the victory.
|6 years 25 weeks ago||Ditto...||
week 14 only on Chrome.
|6 years 25 weeks ago||The point is....||
RRod likes to bring in fresh legs and rotate players throughout the game, hence, the reason we need the depth and also why two superstars can shine at the same position (sans QB).
|6 years 25 weeks ago||Rich Rod....||
if you are reading this, we got your back. Please disregard all the silly rhetoric and the people trying to draw parallels between two ridiculously unrelated events (what does moeller's drunken tirade have to do with Rich Rod?).
Your getting the Kiffin treatment from the "shock and awe" media, yet, you are not a complete douchenozzle.
The FANS support you.

Gatti/Ward, Ali/Frazier, Ali/Foreman etc....but, in the now, MMA anyday.
