|1 day 17 hours ago||I've never followed horse||
I've never followed horse racing, but from a sociological standpoint it's fascinating how there is all this buildup at the stadium for hours and then the actual event is over in a couple of minutes. It seems so strange to me.
|1 day 17 hours ago||Protip||
As a general rule, don't expect a guy who just led a team to the national championship and turned down the NFL to transfer to a MAC school.
|1 day 17 hours ago||You are comparing domestic||
You are comparing domestic leagues with a global organization. Not apples to apples at all.
A much more proper comparison for FIFA would be the IOC, which is about equally corrupt.
|1 day 20 hours ago||You can, but Brown doesn't||
You can, but Brown doesn't live in the 734 area code, so it might not have the same effect.
|2 days 18 hours ago||I assumed you were somewhere||
I assumed you were somewhere in the Andes.
|2 days 18 hours ago||Henson, Terrell, Walker . . .||
Henson, Terrell, Walker . . . odd that the 1998 class produced so many great college players who didn't pan out in the pros.
A lot of our running backs could go on that list. Wheatley was serviceable as a pro but I expected more, and I thought for sure that Biakabutuka and Perry would be good pros.

I think that's fair. Having said that, his return skills were a big part of what won him the Heisman and made him a top pick.
|2 days 18 hours ago||I know he's been a candidate||
I know he's been a candidate for NBA jobs but I don't really get it. A lot of college coaches don't pan out in the pros. What makes him a prized commodity for NBA teams? He played one season there but otherwise has been a college lifer, IIRC.
|2 days 21 hours ago||Well, Frank Crawford and Mike||
Well, Frank Crawford and Mike Murphy turned in a pretty rough 1891 season, going 4-5.
|2 days 21 hours ago||His secret||
Nothing calms the nerves down like a good dose of Judge Judy.
|2 days 21 hours ago||Interesting what the ranting||
Interesting what the ranting guy yells at the :54 second mark in that video.
|3 days 17 hours ago||Coastal California is great.||
Coastal California is great. The inland regions are a blast furnace half the year.
|3 days 20 hours ago||Don't forget the Maple||
Don't forget the Maple Leafs.
|3 days 20 hours ago||I thought those ads couldn't||
I thought those ads couldn't get any more annoying, but then when they started name-dropping her regularly ("HI! I'M FLO!") they somehow took it to another level.
|3 days 20 hours ago||I can tolerate that ad for||
I can tolerate that ad for the simple fact that, for once, it's an ad featuring a couple that doesn't make the man the moron.
|3 days 20 hours ago||That ad was fantastic. I'll||
That ad was fantastic. I'll never forget that jingle. I think its run extended into the '90s.
The Mel Farr Superstar ad campaign was well done also.
|4 days 16 hours ago||Does this mean we'll probably||
Does this mean we'll probably never do it again? Aren't we going to have the same time challenges in getting the field ready every year?
|4 days 16 hours ago||Crystal balls||
Well they're very shiny and they sparkle in the sunlight, for starters. You can sort of see your reflection in them.
|4 days 17 hours ago||That was the rumor. I don't||
That was the rumor. I don't think it's ever been confirmed though.
|4 days 18 hours ago||As, uh, physical as the Bad||
As, uh, physical as the Bad Boys were, I don't remember them doing anything quite like this. Laimbeer and Mahorn were more about doing little stuff all game that the refs couldn't see, until they successfully provoked the guy they were guarding into fighting back and getting a technical.
|4 days 18 hours ago||"Golden State" is really||
"Golden State" is really strange if you think about it. I've always known the Warriors by that name, but I can't imagine how weird it must have gone down at first.
|4 days 18 hours ago||I'm amazed they had the audio||
I'm amazed they had the audio of the Padres' conversation at the mound. I didn't think they did that kind of thing back then.
|4 days 18 hours ago||It only applied to the league||
It only applied to the league office, not the franchises themselves.
|4 days 20 hours ago||I don't follow boxing, but||
I don't follow boxing, but here's my 2 cents.
$100 isn't cheap, but assuming that it does not actually bust your budget, I'd go ahead and buy it, or at least find someplace to see it. It sounds like you have a strong desire to see the bout. It's a one-time expense. Are you going to be happier saving the $100 than you would be from getting to see the fight?
|4 days 21 hours ago||80% is a very conservative||
80% is a very conservative estimate - I'd say at least 95% are from outside the city proper. The "Hockeytown" nickname really applies to the suburbs.
|4 days 21 hours ago||The flipside: a lot of people||
The flipside: a lot of people in the Detroit area would consider it a slap in the face to have their franchises rechristened as "Michigan" teams. It would be seen as de-emphasizing their connection with the city.
|5 days 17 hours ago||I like Max, but comparing a||
I like Max, but comparing a 6'6" guy who averaged 5 a game in college with a 6'11" player who had a long NBA career (including multiple All-Star appearances) might be just a tad of a stretch.
|5 days 18 hours ago||Good cause, but I'm fine if||
Good cause, but I'm fine if he chooses to welsh out of the tattoo part - or stick to a rub-on variety.

Well, we have this:

It was cool for the first time but should be retired now.
