Geeked that a relatively authentic Doner place opened in Frederick Md. Huzzah for Turkish German food washed down with 1L beers

60, 75, 90, or 120?
Have a case of 90 in the basement...along with a case of Hopslam that was chilling in my folks fridge since Feb. :)

Sullivan's for dinner (yay random $25 off coupons).
Annapolis with the wife and dog tomorrow for brunch.
Yardwork Sunday :( damn weeds

Not going to stay up that late to watch the Late Show.
Too old and grumpy for me to think his schtick on Colbert was funny anyways.
|1 week 2 days ago||Glory glory Man United!||
Glory glory Man United! Hopefully they keep Kagawa and Januzaj in the offseason...those two plus Mata, Rooney, and a healthy Van Persie would be a nightmare offense to deal with.

Agree. The thought of the Michigan O-Line continues to frighten me. We were....not good, with an AA at one tackle, and a draftable tackle at the other bookend.
Please please please please please improve, interior line!

I am considering it, except for the fact that most of the internationals involved in the WC will probably be playing VERY sparing minutes.

Wish them luck. Don't begrduge them the opportunity of a 7 figure contract at their ages.
Injuries happen. I think Mitch's case for crystalizes the dilemma these kids face

Will be nice if a B1G team (preferrably Michigan) wins it all...but having the top 3 B1G teams go through to the Elite Eight is a nice testament on the depth of the conference.

Time to claim SEC scalp #2

Morgan is my favorite player on this team.
Hope a team takes a flyer on him at the next level. What a credit to his family and the Michigan coaching staff.

Drank a 22 of Stone Enjoy By 04/20/14 during the game.
Drinking Bowmore Legend neat with a few drops of water. Onto the Cask Strength Laphroig next.

Agree. But the lack of more than one functional big man for Louisville plays in our favor...

Perfect time to open my new bottle of Islay scotch.
Lost a year off my life during that last two minutes.
Jordan Morgan, this shot is for you!!!!!

Agree. Ignoring the weather & campus, Stanford has the best academics in D1. Bar none. As someone with multiple degrees from Michigan, would cheerfully force my child to go to Stanford over Michigan.

Odd. My IE went to a link of a picture of a middle finger, and screamed NEIN NEIN NEIN NEIN NEIN at me when I clicked on the link you provided.

5 seed curse lives on...3 dead, one (St Louis) barely alive. Jeesh.

Only 80 pounds, but charges like a bull, can knock people over if she wanted too. Definitely a lineman. Maybe Molk; undersized for the position.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||There has been movement away||
There has been movement away from the TLSO (turtle/clam shell brace) after lumbar surgeries in my experience. I know my partner will use them for an extensive fusion, but most will put their patients in what looks like a glorified weight belt (with hard plastic to limit extension) for 2-3 levels lumbosacral instrumentation.

It's probably the exact same one.
The only "stress fracture" to the back that results in sitting a young athlete is a pars defect. If untreated, can result in an unstable spondylolisthesis. A spinous or transverse process fracture does not effect the structural integrity of the spine; it just hurts like hell. Given the age (healthy bones) without trauma (classically jumping out a window to avoid fire), the fracture will not involve the vertebral body itself.
And yes, I do this for a living (spine physician). Although it hasn't leaked, what Embiid has is what I guessed McGary had, but Mitch may have undergone a fusion procedure.
Embiid returning at all for the tourney is questionable unless the docs are doing serial MRIs to check for decreased T2/STIR intensity on sagittal imaging while imobilizing his spine. And even then, you are opening yourself up for future liability pushing the return to play timeline that aggressively. 6 weeks for an active pars defect minimum, with lots of rehab to regain the core strength you lose while braced.

Cliche...but thought we were the home team and when getting mugged when driving the lane, we are supposed to get a call?

the gene therapy for cystic fibrosis was very promising in early stages in repairing the cftr defect in mucosal lining...until the vector used to administer the altered gene resulted in fatal pulmonary edema

Awesome ending to not-our-best shooting game
+1 to the guy above saying he feels old watching Big Dog's son beat Purdue in the old Mackey arena
