Don't screw around with helmets. Your primary objective should be to find one with good safety ratings (see Va Tech helmet study) that fits him properly. If you can get the helmet in navy, you can always order a Michigan decal kit off eBay.

Exactly, rule #1 about using a gun is know exactly what you are shooting at... so either he's an asshole for knowing it was a wolverine and still shooting it, or he's an asshole for not knowing what it was.

Worst in the past year: Entourage (...and I watched the entire series, but for some reason it didn't translate well to the big screen.)
Worst of the past decade: The Love Guru (...could not make it through the entire thing)
Worst of my lifetime: Mac and Me (...even at 8, I recognized it was an awful ET ripoff.)

I have just recently gotten into the sport as my two boys started playing over the past few years. Talking to numerous people that have followed lacrosse for 20+ years, including some that played at the D1 level, what everyone keeps coming back to is coaching is holding the program back. I've never heard anyone have a single bad thing to say about JP the man, but much like Hoke it's becoming clear that he is in over his head.

He's fast approaching a place where we start ranking it against the greatest ironman streaks. If he were to play another 300 and pass 1000 straight, I'd personally put it above Ripken.
Greatest ironman streak might be Glenn Hall... didn't miss an NHL game in 8 seasons... over 500 games straight as a mask less goalie.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||I've seen things like this||
I've seen things like this happen too many times. There was a guy a few years ago that died after hitting his head on the ice trying to help push a broken down Zamboni off. A few years ago, we had a local ref snap his leg just above the ankle when he hit a rut skating backwards during play. USA hockey now mandates everyone that steps on the ice wear a helmet... no more coaches in baseball caps.
Just such a freak and sad accident.

Due to his history in that building, it would be a fitting place for Red to finish his coaching career. Though I'd much prefer for him to go out in Tampa with a title.

Having three kids in youth hockey, it hits very close to home. As a hockey parent, I'm part of the problem... I'm part of the hockey mentality that causes players to ignore sypmtoms and/or come back too soon. I don't know how many times I've told my kids that hockey players don't lay on the ice... they get up and finish their shift or skate to the bench. I've told them stories or shown them videos of Bobby Baun, Ian Laperriere, Greg Campbell... built them up as larger than life for playing through injury. That all has to change. It's ok to embrace and encourage toughness in the sport, but as parents, coaches and team doctors, we have to step in and take control of the situation to protect the player from his/her own pride.

I know you said gas, but what about a Weber Performer charcoal grill? It's a very versatile grill and has gas assist... I.e. You hook up a small Coleman propane tank and combined with a chimney starter your charcoal is good to go in 10 mins tops. The performer also includes the full side table in a cart setup and is also easy to move if need be. Comes with an ash catcher and the hinged Weber grill grate which makes adding charcoal easy during indirect cooks. Also has the charcoal baskets for indirect cook. Being a 22.5" Weber kettle, you have all those available aftermarket accessories... companies that make cast iron grates, pizza oven add-on, there's even a smoker add on that works well (smokenator I believe). Couldn't recommend it more!

Gallimore was lead instructor for my engin 100 class... I enjoyed his lectures and the class which was one of the reasons I went with aero. Wasn't lucky enough to have him again... Faeth was my 225 instructor (also a great instructor) and Kauffman for 335.

|25 weeks 4 days ago||It's a lot more gray than||
It's a lot more gray than that. I know the way the USAH hockey rulebook (and I believe NHL is the same) is written, linesman give their interpretation of a penalty to the ref at stoppage of play, even in situations when nothing was called by the ref... and certainly that can lead to a penalty. They also help to determine the level of penalty called (minor, souble minor, major, misconduct etc.) However, you never see linesman raising their arm and intiating a stoppage in play for a penalty.
On this particular play, I seriously doubt Wideman was going after this particular linesman. Anyone that has played/watched a lot of hockey knows these shoves near the benches during changes happen double digit times per game. Wideman is not a notrious dirty player... the most logical explanation to me is his bell was rung, he was disoriented when he got near the bench and mistook the ref for a predators player. The league is in an odd place here, because if they don't suspend Wideman, than they obviously believe he was disoriented... at which point they need to explain why he was allowed to stay in the game.

Or the mascot-less '91 team... Marcus Kennedy with the killer goggles and the Thomas twins. That was a pretty crazy decade for college bball in Ann Arbor/Ypsi.

Fun fact: he lived a couple of houses down and delivered my parents newspaper back before I was born.
One of Eric's teammates on the Cincinatti Bengals was 3-time all pro TE Rodney Holman... another YHS alum.
While they did not attend YHS, the Jenkins brothers (Kris and Cullen) spent a few years in Ypsi public schools.

|37 weeks 6 days ago||Another thing to remember,||
Another thing to remember, the top 10 of the NHL draft is always dominated by CHL (Canadian major-junior) kids, with a few Euro's sprinkled in. The CHL kids get a lot more exposure early on because they get drafted at 15 versus the kids that go the AAA/USHL/NCAA route. The 2015 NHL draft where you had 3 NCAA players in the top 10 was an anomaly.

He has said in the past that his contract that runs through the end of this season will likely be his last, but I don't believe he has made a definitive statement yet that he is retiring after this year.
