Drummond cannot do anything to improve his free throw shooting, that could be one of the worst deals in NBA history. Right now - Hey, you need to stop a Pistons run? Foul Drummond, that is all you gotta do.

I was able to get away with that approach for a couple of years. That is until my wife realized that "handling the food" essentially meant drinking Oberon in the garage while listening to the Tigers game and every once in a while pouring a half cup of random sauce on already marinating meat. After she caught on to my scheme my "food prep" time has decreased significantly.

see that it would be. I guess my point of view is colored by having an 8 and 1 year old either throwing a ball at my head or climbing up my leg at every moment. I like grilling but at most I get 1/2 hour for any prep and 1/2 hour to man the grill. I guess I value efficiency out of necesssity, and perhaps I am even a little bitter about not having time for the science experiment.

where? Both Jackson and KCP are going to end up being 38 minute per game players. Tobias Harris and Stanley Jackson are both going to get substantial minutes as wing-slash players as well.
Maybe a little more than 12-15 but not a whole lot more I don't think.

people get way to scientific about grilling. Two weeks ago, we had a BBQ where I put two racks of Kroger Chipolte BBQ ribs into the oven for 3 hour and then put them on the grill for 20 minutes. Some other dude brought a smoker, had some kind of scientifically awesome marinade and used my entire kitchen for four hours like he was conducting a science experiement. My whatever-Kroger ribs were notably better.
So, I think Koegel coney dogs and suddenly salad tonight and maybe chicken breasts and peppers tomorrow. Gas grill. No bells. No whistles. Easy and delicious.

just needed a dude. Someone to play 12-15 minutes per game and contribute something. The Pistons had Reggie Jackson and nothing at point. To get somebody with even the capability go around 15 per game on any team for 6 million per year is a win for us.

gasped every time Blake came in during the Cavs series. It was a guaranteed Cleveland 8-0 run and a Pistons timeout.

I know it was just a "joke" but that shit is not funny. What is happening with those babies is really, really tragic.

is actually like the "low end" cider beer too. Even Angry Orchard is a lot better than Redd's. I never used to drink that stuff but they are pretty damn good.
|1 day 13 hours ago||That is||
true. I have learned that, in this day and age, something is either not a problem AT ALL and you are a fool if you think so or is clearly THE BIGGEST PROBLEM ever that will kill us all and cannot be solved. it is either one or the other and there is no in between.

There, I said it. I feel a huge weight off my back. It has been tough carrying that around with me for that long.

is not a whole lot of room for imagination left in this world right now. Minecraft provides that. It is open-ended. It tells whatever story the player wants it to tell, and there are no borders in the game, no time when they have to stop, and "winning" and "losing" are not a factor. Too much Minecraft is a bad thing. Minecraft as part of a balanced child's life is completely fine and I think even beneficial.
(You are correct though, it is bizarre to watch when you first encounter it).
|1 day 19 hours ago||It is||
a combination of things. You can't get the feel for a baseball game on TV, players are moved so regularly in the MLB that it is hard to develop an attachment to teams, players are so ethnically diverse that sometimes your average Mike from the suburbs kind of feels alienated from the game, it takes FOREVER to play a game. There are a lot of factors, but I don't think attendance is hurting at this point from what I understand.

Minecraft and Halo have cornered the recreational time market.

Lansing is the better option I think.
|3 days 17 hours ago||Ahh,||
but you have forgotten a key element of things that you identify somewhat in your post below. The first year coach bump. From Ty Willingham, to Charlie Weiss, to Brady Hoke and numerous others, inevitably there is a team that randomly breaks through with a first year coach. I see Georgia as possibly being that team this year.

lost the entire first round of the draft to the NFL. I will never say that OSU does not have a chance at making the playoff, they recruit too well and are too well coached for that kind of statement. I just don't think this will be a year they seriously contend.

are asking me, personally, that sounds incredibly difficult.

all of the hype before the 2012 season was to sell the Michigan v. Alabama game opening weekend. We were not that good and everybody paying attention really knew that. I think this year is a completely different animal. However, I would agree with you that people are taking certain things for granted a little bit. EVERYBODY thinks 7-0 is a given. I think Wisconsin and Penn State in back to back weeks are going to be a significant test before we even get to the "meat" of our schedule.

I like Stanford, LSU, Michigan, Houston, Florida State, Clemson, and Georgia as a possible wildcard.
