|1 hour 15 min ago||Every now and then I look up||
Every now and then I look up disgraced politicians on eBay, and even the mundane stuff is kind of funny. Sellers thinking they'll get $150 for a signed picture of an incarcerated governor is...interesting.
|5 hours 13 min ago||Wasn't sitting far from you, and completely agree.||
I made things so much worse deciding to wear suede shoes that day. With snow on the ground in the stadium that might have been the worst apparel decision I've ever made.
|5 hours 36 min ago||I'm sure if he wanted the job||
I'm sure if he wanted the job it'd be his, but every bit of smoke says he doesn't. Remember, this gig has already taken him out of retirement. I'll be happy for him when he picks a long term replacement and rides off into the sunset as a badass/hero.
|6 hours 3 min ago||I didn't think the Big Chill||
I didn't think the Big Chill was too bad (and I was up high in a corner) but the sightlines at Progressive Field against OSU were awful from the heart of the Michigan section. The game would have been much easier to follow on TV.
Full disclosure: the weather probably has something to do with remembering both.
|6 hours 10 min ago||You need to read that and the||
You need to read that and the tweet about DeCarolis again.
Yes, I do feel like Jim when he tells Michael to head back to the annex when Toby returns.
|1 day 2 hours ago||Yes.||
+ shot caller.

Anyone with even passing interest in money (meta interest, not just acquiring it) should take a look at the story of the Island of Yap and their use of enormous stones as currency. Keynes and others have written about it, but Milton Friedman's first chapter in Money Mischief quotes one of the first western sources, should take <5mins to read and isn't what most people consider political. Very interesting stuff, at least for an econ geek.
As for other sites I visit, the annotation concept behind Genius.com is incredible. It has its flaws and needs better diversity among the best mods, but especially for hip hop there's some amazing material there, and there are big time artists with verified accounts.
They've diversified their scope (originally rapgenius.com) to include all types of music, court opinions and even Hillary Clinton will be doing some type of partnership with her speeches this campaign. Not an endorsement or diss, by the way, just a big name from outside the music industry.

Lululemon got some vocal backing when I made the worst thread ever.

Don't sleep on UA. "Crabcakes and football [and getting tied spread eagle against your will with a dirty sock in your mouth]! That's what Maryland does!"
Unlike the Germans, they also gift you a painting. Could be considered a recruiting violation, though.
|1 day 10 hours ago||"Nike is a powerful tool"||
Judging by some in these threads, I'm choosing to take that more or less literally.
I'm guessing at least a few posters have this whole collection under their bed/on display in their dungeon. NSFW (via The Onion).
|1 day 10 hours ago||The wording might have been||
The wording might have been weird. Boost > Red October > Rest of Nike, but I'm not going to downgrade the LV's just because they're getting old.
I have heard they're eventually going to sell Boosts to anyone willing to pay MSRP, but that could be years down the road.
|1 day 10 hours ago||The Boost collaboration was||
The Boost collaboration was better than any of the Air Yeezys (except those Red Octobers IMO), but are still behind the Louis Vuittons.
Mostly I just want M to sign with Balenciaga.

Breaking: WD's Yeezy Boosts hitting the shelves in favor of Red Octobers.

On the plus side for Germany, Hollande and the French seem completely at odds with them on the Oxi vote. At least that's a familiar foe...
I buy black Nike socks on purpose which won't change when the switch happens. I'll probably buy virtually no Nike gear, which will be a major change from buying virtually no Adidas gear.

You can't handle Enthusiasm Unknown to Mankind!

|2 days 6 hours ago||No single sporting event||
No single sporting event anywhere has ever needed a two hour pregame show. Hell, you could probably fully cover an upcoming presidential election or major Fed announcement with the time they spend on Super Bowl pregame coverage.
|2 days 6 hours ago||Probably a good decision.||
Driving with an 18.08 doesn't sound very safe.
|2 days 9 hours ago||Fact: North Koreans enjoy||
Fact: North Koreans enjoy having food, water and shelter. Fact: you also enjoy having food, water and shelter.
My point is, obviously, why do you support Kim Jung Un?
|4 days 8 hours ago||The weather at college and||
The weather at college and NFL games has been alike since the NFL started playing ball. I don't think it's a bad idea to keep that going.

Did she reply, "A marsupial is a mammal"?
|5 days 1 hour ago||Tiebreakers have (presumably)||
Tiebreakers have (presumably) been around for over a century as well. I think it'll be fine.
|5 days 1 hour ago||The two teams with the best||
The two teams with the best records will play a one-off game for the title. The conference determined a champion with win-loss for over a century, this just adds a game.
|5 days 1 hour ago||If Michigan and OSU are the||
If Michigan and OSU are the top two teams in the fourteen team conference, rematch ratings shouldn't be an issue and might actually increase.
I get the resistance about having another shot at beating the winner of The Game, but that's a paradigm shift that isn't going to go away and I think on the whole the positives outweigh the negatives.
|5 days 2 hours ago||Only Howe, Yzerman,||
Only Howe, Yzerman, Delvecchio, Lidstrom, Holmstrom and Draper have played more games as a Red Wing.
Assuming I can math, that means Lindsay, Abel and Sawchuck have their numbers up despite not being a Wing as long as Fedorov.
|5 days 11 hours ago||No.||
Not without some ridiculous run that involves Datsyuk not retiring to Russia after 2017. Love those guys, but Fedorov is the only recent player with an argument, IMO.
|5 days 12 hours ago||It's not retired, it's out of||
It's not retired, it's out of circulation. If it was up to me I'd put a white 16 banner up, but I can see where people are coming from with just about any other plan; it's a unique situation with a lot of emotions on all sides.
