It's really nice finally having a year that we want a UFR of the last game.

|6 weeks 6 days ago||I was driving on 96 in||
I was driving on 96 in Detroit a couple of years ago, it was pretty late so there were two other cars in front of me. A minivan (I think Caravan) came flying past all of us going at least 110, as soon as it passed the car in the front it lost control and all 4 tires blew - it went careening from side to side of the highway 3 times without hitting anything and came to a dead stop in the center of the highway with no functional tires.
I didn't stay to see what happened, but it was pretty amazing and well deserved (at least drive at a speed your tires are rated at).
Then there's the time that a guy cut me off and was weaving through traffic and a cop saw him and flashed his lights. The idiot tried to get away by cutting through two lanes and almost causing a couple of accidents (cut in front of one car then slammed on his brakes); the cop made a move and followed him. It was at least a reckless driving for sure.

Last 10 Duke points were phantom calls. Terrible calls, they even added more time at the end for Duke to have one more chance.

I don't think so. I recall seeing this just about every year.

*sigh* Once again I'm reminded why talking about with race to white people is almost always a losing battle.

In your eyes. The model minority myth really a slap in the face for Asian Americans though. (And this is not the forum/place to talk about that, so I'm just leaving it at that; you can read about it here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2015/10/20/asian-amer...)

As to your question about a civil claim for an eye poke, I think Hackbart v. Cincinnati Bengals, Inc., 601 F.2d 516 (10th Cir. 1979) would apply.
|13 weeks 9 hours ago||If he was trespassing on your||
If he was trespassing on your property (no legal right to be there) then it's doubtful that most courts would find you liable for a dog bite (since it's not a vicious breed)... and the burden of proof would be on him as a plaintiff to prove that your dog bit him. I don't really see the basis for what your attorney told you; however, it may end up costing more to litigate (hence settlement, which is covered by your policy), but in this circumstance I doubt the cost would be that great since it doesn't seem that likely to make it out of the pleading stage.

You can also seek out sanctions from the other side if their lawyers were engaged in unethical/incompetent behavior.

That's probably what will push Bush's case to the win category - prior injuries would show that there's an issue that St Louis should have reasonable addressed.

Problem with this is that Missouri doesn't seem to follow the open and obvious standard. Woo reasonable care.

Backup quarterback that looked fairly terrible most of the time he was in... so running the ball isn't outside the realm of possibility.

It's even more telling when an entire team leaves because you fired the coach.

'03 of course. It's also one of the few that was really in doubt.

You've missed a lot then. Easiest close comparison is Sheridan/Threet.

Yeah, it'll probably be the #1 and #2 defenses in the country going at it.

28 points, I can't complain too much. They didn't look great but it also didn't look like they were opening the playbook at all.

After reading Brandon's Lasting Lessons all I can say is I no longer blame Adidas for the uniformz in the least... just more to hate on Brandon for.
(Basically Brandon was the reason for all of the crap over the last few years and it's all completely on him, not Adidas in the least.)

Dang it - I got him down to a price that I was willing to pay (just checked my email), and someone bought it for the full price before I could get to it.

It does look like he extended up and was aiming for the head on the hit on the video.

Ikea - they're really cheap (a fraction of the cost of other places for solid oak) if you get the pre-cut ones. We're at the end of a full house renovation (so at this point costs are a huge factor) and are ordering some from Ikea (haven't gotten them yet, but the samples in store look/feel pretty good). There's also the added bonus of being able to use the scrap pieces as cutting boards.

Their prices aren't that bad though... (I've ordered way too many dumpsters the last couple of years while doing a full renovation on our house)

I thought that until the Big Ten did a pretty good showing in the bowl games.

Fastest: Ford Focus ST... it's really fun being able to smoke muscle cars. (252 hp, 270 lb ft torque in a Focus) Great track car as well.
Slowest: 2008 Honda Fit - It was painful trying to get it up to speed.
