My mom and two of my uncles are John Glenn alums from roughly your time (they were there with Carr). She was in the marching band, my uncles played basketball.
|2 hours 20 min ago||We were awful.||
I believe my HS still holds some type of IHSA loss record. Consecutive losses maybe?
One guy in my class went FCS and we had a couple D1 basketball players on the team so better than usual in my time, but historically just awful at football.
Edit: HD Jacobs in Algonquin, IL.
|16 hours 38 min ago||In any case, Yzerman has done||
In any case, Yzerman has done more than enough to prove he should be the man in Detroit when Holland retires. His fellow GM's spoke loudly at the awards last week, like you said, he got his coach, he's navigated their cap issues well and I'd put money on him having a cup before he leaves unless something weird happens with Holland.
I'm not going to say he didn't have some luck (flipside is he had earned a shot with a non-awful franchise) but he's pretty much nailed every big decision he's needed to make and has two consecutive gold medals managing the Canadian team on his resume as well.
Yzerman is a legitimately talented GM.

Average retirement age: 78.7
Rehnquist is the only one to die in office since 1955, and justices are retiring later than in the past.

Whoever charges Davis money for that haircut must be one hell of a businessman.

Felt more at home at Akron.

I believe the Android app was made as some kind of school project and hasn't been updated in a while.
Someone with Android skillz should talk to Brian about making an updated version.

Twitter dot com is a good place for uniform news.

Not like this Chubbs though:
|1 day 22 hours ago||Sorry, I wasn't very clear. I||
Sorry, I wasn't very clear. I was trying to get across that I think he has a better case than anyone he played with (except Yzerman and Lidstrom) and anyone currently playing. Someone who would be retiring soon or did recently.
I did forget about Aurie, though, I won't pretend I didn't. Weird situation all around, but then again people might say that about Fedorov after enough time.
|1 day 22 hours ago||I don't know if I agree 91||
I don't know if I agree 91 should be retired, but I do agree he has the strongest case of anyone not up there (unless they ever want to hang a 16 banner).
|2 days 40 min ago||My bad.||
I should have said "at least since". I didn't know Romero had a sister until the Oklahoma/Michigan WCWS game where she was in Michigan gear as an Oklahoma commit.
|2 days 42 min ago||I've been waiting for this||
I've been waiting for this today. Lidstrom is an obvious lock, but I'm honestly hoping Fedorov gets in as well. I know a lot of people feel differently, but it's time to welcome him back and remember how good he was as a Red Wing.
Only Howe, Yzerman, Delvecchio, Lidstrom, Holmstrom and Draper have played more games as a Red Wing. It's a damn shame to keep the boos going.

I haven't seen anything specific, but she committed to Oklahoma as a sophomore (Sierra's freshman year), and apparently never wavered.
I'm assuming she heard plenty about M, so happy trails unless they're on the schedule, I guess.

Crowd spoke. We're gonna need to take some steps to get rid of these ridiculous apparel threads.

Jim Harbaugh's MySpace game is on point. Well done.
|2 days 15 hours ago||I hear ya.||
Holding out for months would make a lot of guys run out of socks. Stay strong.
|2 days 18 hours ago||Single good thing to say:||
They once counted distinguished alum James Gandolfini as one of their most avid fans.
That's pretty freaking awesome, even though the addition was downright terrible.
|2 days 19 hours ago||I agree with your general||
I agree with your general point here, but even making it a dichotomy I think Hatch is almost certainly a unique circumstance that shouldn't have any bearing on any other case or necessarily reflect Beilein's position on medicals.
I'm with you that there's not a lot of nuance deciding whether a coach can ethically cut a player, but the Hatch situation is an extreme exception and actually nuanced.
|2 days 20 hours ago||I don't know what interest||
I don't know what interest the BTHC would have in adding a Pac school with no history or tradition. Last year aside, one of the biggest assets the conference has is four of six schools with more or less elite tradition and relatively large fanbases.
ASU isn't going to bring TV viewers in any real number, they're 1,600 miles away from the westernmost current member, and they're probably going to suck for a while. We already have crabcakes in the conference, we don't need any cactus.
|2 days 22 hours ago||I loved my time in||
I loved my time in Bloomington but my only other real experience is Fort Wayne, which...yeah.
Not trying to hate on Indiana, I just think ignoring Chicago is a ridiculous oversight.
|2 days 22 hours ago||I'm aware of that.||
Lived there for 19 years and visited anywhere south of Joliet probably less than ten times combined.
My point is that while the rest of the state might be Iowa or Indiana, Chicagoland should count for enough to avoid being ranked two spots away from Alabama and just ahead of Indiana. Ignoring Chicago when you're ranking Illinois is like ranking New York based only on upstate New York.
|2 days 22 hours ago||Illinois?||
The biggest complaint is that it's like Indiana or Iowa if you take Chicago out of the equation (sounds a bit like New York, but I digress), but the two behind it are Alabama and Indiana and the two above are Wyoming and Iowa. Chicago literally counts for nothing?
|3 days 57 min ago||Very cool.||
I might have to order an Yzerman Petes sweater to wear down here in Tampa. I absolutely refuse to wear any of the made up Lightning stuff, and Wings gear sends a different message.
I wonder if they would make a replica of the Howe jersey in Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

Hey, everybody knows you go to your seventeenth birthday party in your favorite jersey and then take it off at exactly midnight, never to don another.

The two sports figures I admire most are Muhammad Ali and Steve Yzerman.
Very different people, but there you go.
