forebode does not mean what you think it does. Either that or autocorrect fail.

You're Harbaugh's former roommate! Your father's brother is your uncle. His nephew, assuming they had at least a 3rd sibling, is your cousin. So your father's brother's nephew's cousin is you.
Isn't that special.

Sure, but the assignment was Delano Hill's to blow and Bolden wouldn't have been playing in his stead.

I certainly hope they have some sort of commitment from Love to give up two #1 overall picks for him, he's not good enough to pay that for a one year rental. My response wasn't a "this is what I think will happen" - it was a scenario where everything has gone tits up.
If you disagree that the probable outcome is that the Cavs don't win the title, I encourage you to lay a wager down next time you're in a suitable establishment.
"in anticipation of the move, Cleveland had its odds to win the 2014-15 NBA title reduced from 7-to-2 to 3-to-1 at the LVH SuperBook."

Not difficult. They probably won't win this year. They'll struggle to sign Love next summer with cap space tied up in James, Irving and Thompson.
Fast forward to 2016, when we're looking at a depleted Cavs, after one trip to the Finals where they lost in 5 and one 2nd round exit. Waiters has left to get paid, Love is in LA, Irving's knees are failing him, and there's no cap space because they overpaid Thompson (has James' agent) to reward James. James is 32 and declining and Wiggins is playing at Paul George' 1st half of the 2013-14 season-level.
Yes, there's plenty of room for the Cavs to mess this up. I hope they don't. Cleveland deserves a championship.

I applaud the dad for sticking up for and believing in his son.
Best of luck to Dan Gibbs wherever he ends up. They can't all be Michigan players.

You're right, I'm sure, that he was mediocre, but surely a coach can improve with experience? I'm a casual NBA fan and don't know the Celtics that well, but Bill Simmons is a nut and die-hard, and he seems to think Rivers has really developed into a quality coach.

No way he takes the second bet, as he can easily clamp his false teeth over the other eye, too. You messed up the order of the first two bets.

They shouldn't let this kid play another year of High School football. He's completely unplayable. Insane.
Kids like this, they should let him play college ball for a year, then go pro. All Day talent level. First round pick at 19 if he was allowed.

Probably my favorite football moment was... having... a climax with the two of them wildly swinging for eachother.

Our country is overflowing with money and this is just the kind of crazy infrastructure project that could only really happen here. I guess it makes some kind of sense given that it could open water ways for the fishing/fish farming industry and hopefully prevent some accidents/deaths. However, I think most countries would prioritize other projects with that kind of money.
Not often Norway gets mentioned on MGoBlog, but this is two mentions in just over a week.

Please forgive my poor wording. I agree that this is an inappropriate use of "allegedly". In order to educate this sports journalist and others who may use the word in the wrong context, I was hoping the brain trust of the board could provide better examples of where you might use "allegedly".

If that's not an appropriate use of the word "allegedly", could someone please provide a better example?

While it has been alledged that CRAIG JAMES KILLED FIVE HOOKERS AT SMU, it is proven that he smothered his son to the point of getting Texas Tech's head coach fired. That exact sequence of events may be more alledged than proven, but the slightly over protective nature of his behavior is not.
|4 years 15 weeks ago||Maybe...||
...just maybe there might be just a tad more media attention on him now than there was then.

This is the internet. "I'm pretty sure mine is smaller than 6 inches" will never go through without comment.

There SHOULD not be a pre-season ranking. How does it make sense to rank teams which have achieved nothing?
Vegas, journalists, bloggers and forum posters should be left to predict whom they think will win the most games, but the whole concept of a preseason ranking is silly.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||or...||
Agreed, though I would prefer a study where you gather 100 college level sprinters to each run three heats with something like 30 mins in between on both a top modern surface and then the same routine the following day in the exact same conditions on old fashioned surfaces with old fashioned equipment. Half run Day 1 on modern and Day 2 on old fashioned, the other half the opposite.
Would be a cool experiment. Discovery channel?
|4 years 28 weeks ago||Agreed||
Needs more hookers and porn stars, imo. We'll see this weekend if he's upped his intake.

I'm an expert. I have a 10 year old:
It means something inside your knee is hurt, and it will take time to get better.
For understanding more about the meniscus tear, I can recommend this wikipedia article:
I'm in no way an expert on medical issues, but from this article, it sounds like his season will be in jeopardy and if serious, his career as well, due to risk of reinjury. Here's hoping he will make a speedy recovery (but be shut down by the Blake Countesses and Terry Richardsons of this world when he plays us, obv).
Highlights from wikipedia:
If the destroyed part of the meniscus was removed, patients can usually start walking using a crutch a day or two after surgery. Although each case is different, patients return to their normal activities on average after a few weeks (2 or 3). Still, completely normal walk will resume gradually and it's not unusual to take 2–3 months for the recovery to reach a level where a patient will walk totally smoothly. Many meniscectomy patients don't ever feel a 100% functional recovery, but even years after the procedure they sometimes feel tugging or tension in a part of their knee. There is little medical follow-up after meniscectomy and official medical documentation tends to ignore the imperfections and side-effects of this procedure.
If the meniscus was repaired the rehabilitation program that follows is a lot more intensive. After the surgery a hinged knee brace is sometimes placed on the patient. This brace allows controlled movement of the knee. The patient is encouraged to walk using crutches from the first day, and most of the times can put partial weight on the knee.
The time course varies with each patient. Starting from the second month the patient maybe able to walk freely and can also do various "low-impact" exercises (static bicycle, swimming, etc.), but should expect the knee to feel stiff and sore. If the rehabilitation was done properly the patient can gradually return back to "high-impact" activities (like running). However, "heavier activities", like running, skiing, basketball etc., generally any activities where knees bear sudden changes of the direction of movement can lead to repeated injuries. When planning sport activities it makes sense to consult a physical therapist and check how much impact the sport will have on the knee.
