I clicked upvote before I saw you trash my town's pizza. We'll do to you what we did to Jon Stewart...

Hops are one of beer's 4 main ingredients and big part in the overall flavor of the beer. Hoppyness is a big focus of lots of beers, including the now very popular American Pale Ale.
"Craft" beer just mean's it's not the rice-infused swill that comes out by the gallon from Bud and Miller plants all over the country. Describing the various types of craft brews, that's another story.

I have some real reasons behind black bean burgers, but in general if it's fresh, made in the restaurant, etc. I think they're delicious. Goose Island's in Chicago is outstanding, as is their Turkey Burger.
|6 hours 52 min ago||What type of honda?||
Give me a year and model. Odds are it was (at least somewhat/components/assembled) made in America.
Also, most of Chrysler's "Imported From Detroit" vehicles ARE actually imported from Canada.

thanks for posting! And what wealthy Wisco alum lives in Tampa?

I don't get the appeal of the zombie craze at all. Don't find it interesting.
(same with vampires/werewolves but that might be a more popular idea)
|7 hours 28 min ago||Nope||
The Auto Industry gets really quiet at the end of the year and I'm a little bored at work.

I thought that it might be a good time for this thread for that reason.
Also, I don't get the Kate Upton obsession. I think she's attractive, but these OMG HOT girls come and go. Before her it was.... Megan Fox? and before her was....? there will be another new one soon.

I don't go to lots of movies, but yeah, never saw titanic.

I'd never buy a GT-R, however it has quite possibly my favorite nickname of any supercar

I think that Michigan wouldn't mind the flexibility, but also there are generally 2 types of NTs - Planetoids and penetrators. Ideally at least 1 DL takes up a double team, usually the NT, but this staff has shown that they like being able to get penetration from the nose spot. Between Mike Martin's awesomeness and playing a 280lb Black at the nose, combined with having Pipkins drop a bunch of weight, I wouldn't be surprised if that's where they're heading.

You gotta make some realities stay real. That Bronco that was half off the mountain in Harold and Kumar was RWD (or 4WD). The could have flipped it in reverese and backed up. No need to hang glide anywhere. Come on man.

and Blue Oyster Cult's.
But this trailer does look pretty promising...
|2 days 4 hours ago||NHL Labor Fight||
Was huge. There were 6 teams, and 2 were owned by the same family. There weren't multi-year contracts until the 1960s, and many players had to work in the offseason pre-expansion. Collusion was rampant and players were afraid to speak up because they would get traded away to terrible teams (Ted Lindsay to the Blackhawks!). Lindsay was actually one of the heads in starting the NHLPA (didn't want to be called a Union, ya commies!) and just like the NBA it all started gaining momentum at an All Star Game.
(From memory above, it's detailed in Glenn Hall's biography "The man they called Mr. Goalie" which is where I know the Lindsay stories from. Wikipedia below)
First organizing efforts (1957–1959)
The first NHLPA was formed in 1957 by hockey players Ted Lindsay of the Detroit Red Wings and Doug Harvey of the Montreal Canadiens after the league had refused to release pension plan financial information. The owners broke the union by trading players involved with the organization or sending them to the minor leagues. After an out-of-court settlement over several players' issues, the players disbanded the organization. Lindsay's struggle and the NHL's union busting efforts are dramatized in the movie, Net Worth.

If I wanted real good wings in Ann Arbor I'd head to spots. If I wanted to watch the Bears game (which was never on, thanks to Lions games), I'd head to BWW for a couple hours on Sunday.

Rich boosters DO offer kids incentives! Already! Is it better for Oregon to have their Death Star or Bama to have their waterfall as opposed to the kids who generate the revenue to get, you know, some of that growing pie?
|2 days 7 hours ago||"Student athlete"||
You know the term "student athlete" showed up so that colleges could avoid paying workers comp to injured players, right?
|2 days 8 hours ago||M by 2 scores||
Parmesan garlic, honey BBQ, maybe some teryaki, and a few blazin for good measure.
2 score game that always feels closer, we're nervous the whole way, end up winning by 8-10 points.
|2 days 8 hours ago||OK...||
so your argument is that athletes already get paid and they get paid enough.
What would you have them do with all the extra revenue compared to say, 1998? Coaches, AD, etc. salaries have increased a ton with all the new money that's poured into sports. They players' slice of the pie should be fixed though? because they already get compensated enough?
I don't think that coaches and ADs are the ones bringing in the new TV dollars.
|2 days 8 hours ago||Well...||
It's a bit more complicated than that too. NFL, NBA, and NHL players don't get market rates. The players (Unions) collectively bargained with the owners for revenue sharing that includes salary caps. These caps effectively help most players, as all but the elite would lose out if the elite made more.
The NCAA meanwhile has a totally 1 sided "revenue sharing agreement" with "salary" capped at a scholarship per player (85 per football team). Oh, and NCAA athletes can't make money another way either - someone is paid to make sure they don't get money for appearing in commercials or anything else pro athletes can do.
Also, pro players make a certain percentage of overall revenues - if the NFL makes more money, the cap goes up. The NCAA money pool, especially in football, has totally balooned recently, thus the money has gone to coaches, other AD employees, and facilities. The players have not gotten any of this new money windfall.
