Well I know my interest is piqued

How much time was spent at training table to go from LB - too skinny - NG??
(I know players were smaller then, but still!)

MGo Hall of Fame
It'll have lots of the inside joke creations, etc.
Personal favorite? The CREX Saga. I miss that guy.

Safer? Not sure I buy that. Stored energy gets scary. We basically took the axle off the jeep and swapped the springs in the free state.

Find a 1 ton truck with the same frame and 4WD and swap bodies.

Need a torque wrench and to torque them just right. Might be worth paying for. IIRC my Jeep 4.0L had a different torque spec for each bolt.

No OTs, all those great DLs. Going to be a rough year for B1G QBs.
|1 week 19 hours ago||Car electrical is no big deal||
As long as you're pre-coil, 12V system won't mess with anything.
I won't do home electrical though. 120V lends itself to much higher amps, which can kill you.
|1 week 19 hours ago||Yeah||
Don't do that with a diesel. Crazy high fuel pressures.
Also don't do that with radiators.
|1 week 19 hours ago||Yup||
The Jeeps were great to work on. Tons of space, etc. etc.
The FWD CC and GTI? Less so. I swear packaging engineers love to mess with the rest of us. Granted, I don't envy their work of fitting all that stuff under the hood... but c'mon. Changing a headlight on my FWD cars have required contortions and hands smaller than mine.

Youtube is a HUGE huge help - odds are someone has done exactly what you're thinking of tackling and can get you through it
|1 week 19 hours ago||The Jeep exhaust was easy -||
The Jeep exhaust was easy - hangers in rubber bushings, a few U clamps. I could see that installing duals (where there's nothing), or if there's welding involved, that gets dicey.
|1 week 19 hours ago||Starting up||
Did 3 miles saturday and yesterday. Trying to get up to about 10 miles a week consistently. Wife and I signed up for the BTN 10K here in Chicago, but may end up running the 5 (which we can do!). Going to do a half marathon in Feb (my 2nd, her first) so got to keep up with the training.
I'm down about 10lbs, have 15 to go.
|1 week 20 hours ago||Suspension||
The biggest modification/repair I ever tackled was the new suspension I put on Jeep #2. New coils, spacers, and shocks. Coil springs have a ton of energy storage potential, so it can be a real dangerous job. No coil compressors here, just a big floor jack and lots of articulation.
Also threw on a new cat-back system, but the hardest part of that was removing the old one (hello sawzall!). The new one was just a few U-clamps and away I drove.

Gary puts up numbers that are above average at the NFL COMBINE
|1 week 1 day ago||!Debbie Downer Alert!!||
I used to love that picture. I've definitely posted it on here before. As we've learned more and more about head trauma and former athletes killing themselves (Seau, NHL fighters, etc) the less I can enjoy that picture. At this point I see it and I hope that Morelli doesn't have CTE in a decade.
(Sorry for the Debbie Downer)

I love this series!

Worth noting that despite no blocking, Vince's first reaction was to find the ball and he popped right up. That's the untold story of this clip - Vince's strength in the face of that
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Oh man||
Almost as bad as the Chicago Media "Did you know that Jeff Samardizjzjejajia was a WR at Notre Dame? The Bears should have drafted him!!"
(Live in Chicago, Chicago fan, but the Chicago Media's ND worship is ridiculous)

If there's an NFL athlete in there, I'm thinking Harbaugh will find it (idiot 18 year old nonwithstanding).
Remeber how Dymonte Thomas put it all together?

Think of it as an extra fifth year of high school, similar to how some folks take 5 years to graduate college.

As someone with a very common name myself, I feel for Chris Evans.

If you're a car perosn like me, it was wonderful, even if you're not, it was pretty entertaining television. The specials (save India) were great, and great travel shows. The filming and production was amazing. They did lots of stupid, yet entertaining things. As someone who works in the auto industry, this segment was pretty great:
