RIP Dusty, you gave a legion of wrestling fanatics a great victory cry!
(wow, that was 30 years ago. . .)

Totally legit, prescription and everything.

A guy sure could learn alot paying attention to your posts.

You probably can get 2 years at less than $400/month. I gave up a Cadillac SUV for one and couldn't be happier. When my brother saw the leather, fold-flat seats, tilt rear bench (tailgating win), 5 USB ports, and the 30 GB hard drive, he dropped his Cherokee for his own.
Granted, our wives are the primary drivers of these vehicles, but I have to admit that I don't feel like a complete idiot when I roll around DC with two toddlers, a carton of goldfish, and Eminem on the entertainment system.
Plus, it holds a lot of gear/coolers when I take it for gameday. . .the plastic compartments intended to store the fold-flat seats have an obvious alternate use for anyone who has ever taken a roadtrip.

Uncle Rico over Mox any day of the week. . .he could throw the damn ball a quarter mile.
|2 years 2 weeks ago||Over-and-back=blown call||
Looked good in real time, but the ball actually never was within a foot of half-court, and neither of his feet touched down before he released the ball. . .the man was wronged.

What number are they boycotting?
It's stuff like this that makes one think that the whole state is full of orans. . .

On the rock, or on the guy?
If I had any skill, I'd replace the rock with Big Al's head, and I'd hope that Sisyphus could properly orient him.
Hope...dream...might even try that prayer thing...

it's "F-MEEeechigan". Easy.

NEXT TIME, OP, PLEASE MAKE THIS POINT CLEAR IN THE SUBJECT LINE.
Now what the hell am I going to do. . .anyone have any idea how long this'll take to grow back?

Let's just get this over with. . .DB, please just fire the entire student fan base in one swift move and put up a few "seeking" ads on Craigslist. . .Middle-aged W/M ISO 25,000 co-eds for weekend fun.
C'mon, Dave. You know you want it. . .
|2 years 17 weeks ago||Absolutely frigid||
Freezing rain/sleet/snow mixture, if I remember it right. Sat shivering in North Face Gore-Tex gear, worst weather for a game in Ann Arbor I've experienced. And for those who are wondering, no, the student section was not full. . .although it almost certainly out-performed the rest of the stadium in %age of tickets used.

Decent chance he heard it anyhow, wherever he may have been.

"I have convinced my wife that we should live closer to the UM Medical Center, as I can think of no other place I would want little Bo Hail-Storm to be born. In reality, I don't give a flying rip about that--I just need to be within 20 miles of the athletic campus so that I can reduce my post-game cab fare and spend more on priority points. Therefore, we are looking at homes in South Lyon. . ."
|3 years 8 weeks ago||All game? Sure about that?||
0-0 score and 20:00 on the clock. . .not sure 'bout that.
|3 years 9 weeks ago||I'd put my money on The Raven.||
I'm sure "let's read this to the boys before they go to bed" seemed like a great idea at the time. How would the dads know their attempt at getting a bunch of 10 year-olds interested in literature would have such impact?
And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting

Lest we forget:

100% of the 75% believe they are part of the 25%.
Me? I'm different: I am definitely part of the 25%.

1) Driven snow.
(Not necessarily in that order)
|3 years 12 weeks ago||A stepladder?||
What, have you mistaken Will Campbell for a 1950's-era housewife straining to reach the upper cabinet shelves?
This man is 300 torso-baring pounds of Tackledom.
What we need is an industrial lift.
Or a ramp. A ramp could work, too.
(Edit: Hell. Misplaced response to an earlier post. Point remains, though...)
|3 years 12 weeks ago||This just seems too awkward (or coverage is misleading)||
If DB wants to move the game, he presumably has the $ and negotiating leverage to do so--especially if it is a State on the other side of the negotiation. In the current economy, is it responsible for CT State officials to turn down a profit-multiplier, should Brandon actually offer it? Are they just waiting until closer to the UCONN season ticket sale deadline to announce it, so as to minimize the length of the Manuel pinata session?
Considering UCONN's 2014 schedule looks wide open (from the googles, anyhow), I'd be pleased if the real plan is for Brandon to give ND the "yeah, screw you back" handshake on Sept.1, 2013, pay ND the penalty for cancelling the 2014 game 1 year out, and announce later that day that UCONN will receive ANOTHER $1 million check for playing at Michigan Stadium on Sept. 6, 2014.
Reward Warde with two big paydays, stick it to ND (making them scramble for a quality opponent), and add another home game in 2014? Sounds like a good deal all-around. . .except for the CT-based scalpers who will be denied the opportunity to make a fortune shoehorning Michigan's fans into a 40,000 seat stadium.

It was croquet. Wickedly competitive match, at that.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||"Hold my calls, I'm playing squash"||
Holy hell. . .Pitino calls Bill Martin to explain (or, to be talked into it?), and he is sent to voicemail by Martin's secretary because the boss is playing squash?
Forget missing out on a pretty good coach (again); in my view, the worst part about all of this is that the UM Sailing and Squash teams are still non-factors in NCAA competition, despite the hands-on attention from our AD.
I mean, come on Bill!
