Yeah if I had it to do over I'd have gone somewhere else. This place is lame. Oh well.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||From Phuket, where I am||
From Phuket, where I am unlikely to find a bar showing the game at 8am tomorrow, I say, Go Blue! Will be rocking M gear tomorrow in solidarity. The Russians who make up seemingly 90% of the tourists here may not understand but that's okay.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||I will not be home for Christmas||
I will instead be 7,000 miles away and celebrating without my family for the first time in my 30 years of life. In general this is fine -- I'm glad to be where I am -- but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't going to miss home a bit more than usual on Sunday.
So, in lieu of the warmth of family and catching up with cousins, I'm going to get drunk. Bismillah ir rahman ir rahim.
Merry Christmas everybody!

Agreed, it is horrible. Although it made me notice something I never had before about the split M: below the "MICHIGAN," the silhouette of the block M appears because the box around the word flattens out the points. Kind of a nice effect.
May not be a popular opinion but I like the split M. Now I've discovered one reason why.

This gif. This is a good gif. It expresses my feelings well.

Well, not THAT much distance. Winston-Salem ain't exactly Tuscaloosa in terms of fan rabidness...

the NBA dunk contest is dominated by black guys because the NBA is dominated by black guys. whether their dominance is attributable to some genetic component of their blackness as such is debatable. certainly leaping ability is not the special domain of black people, whoever they are: eight of the top-10 male and six of the top-10 female high jumpers in the world right now are white, arab, or chinese. the best dunker in the world right now is a white dude (jordan kilganon, look him up, the dude can dunk with his hands literally behind his back).
socioeconomic status is a grossly oversimple explanation of elite-level athletic dominance, but so is race. race is a social construct that has little to do with most genetic characteristics. for example: obama, a half-kenyan half-white guy, is considered black in the US. so is chris wormley, who is probably of mixed west african and white descent. other than sharing some visual physical characteristics like dark, tightly curled hair and brown skin, the more recently african parts of their genetic makeup are very different: there's more genetic variability among sub-saharan africans than among any other people.

Yep, my metatarsals. The left ones, specifically. In my early 20s, after a couple of years of wondering why my toes hurt so much all the time and whether I was just being a wuss, I finally went to a podiatrist. Turns out, no, I was not being a wuss, I have arthritis in the big toe of each foot. Started using that pic as an avatar ages ago because I thought it was funny that a 23-year-old could have old-person toes.

FRIENDS. Wish me a fast and unbroken internet connection and a gimmickless feed as I watch the Game alone, or possibly with one or more people who have never watched football before, drinking contraband beer (or possibly gin or whiskey or really whatever booze I can get my hands on between now and 10 PM tomorrow, when The Game starts), yelling incoherently, and furiously texting friends back in the States to update them on my emotional state.

more brutally is not possible. my sympathies.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||EDIT: memed||
Don't know why but that slip of the tongue (or transcription) is hilarious and just seems to fit the Harbaugh/Brown staff's attitude so well.
Fuck water under the bridge, we wreck the bridge. The bridge's days are numbered.

Fuck Yahoo. It reset my picks after I hit "save" at least half the weeks. Re-entered them, a couple of times more than once, until this week. Gave up. Stupid interface. Godspeed everyone who's still in it.
OTOH, this was a good lesson for me in "Why sports betting is a terrible idea." Up until this week I was in 16th place (after leading the first two weeks), with just over a 51% success rate with my picks. I've heard you need to be over 53% to come out ahead in the long run. So with a couple of exceptions, I think we should pretty much all stick to our day jobs.

There's one player who might think of Moe Ways for him to quit, but I hope he doesn't.
Fuck that's a terrible pun. I'm sorry.

I'm in Pakistan so it's already been Friday for 14 hours here.

I like this because I don't trust the human polls. Even late into the season there's too much preseason bias and I do kind of think that West Coast teams get screwed because most of the voters are east.

Great post, data point in favor of the eye test that Spencer wrote about this week. Namely, that we're kicking ass early and often. Brian shared Spencer's piece yesterday, but in case anyone didn't see the link, it's here: The Top Whatever.
"59-3 over Maryland. There’s really no reason to watch Michigan games after they send fullback Khalid Hill — aka “The Hammering Panda” — in to announce to the opponent that, yes, this game is over. He’s their finishing move, Harbaugh’s Tombstone Piledriver, and after he lumbers through your cringing defensive line for a score, the game has ended. Michigan’s scrimmage has begun.
"Hill rolled into the end zone like a lost water buffalo with 3:52 left in the second quarter. Congratulations on making Michigan play almost a full half of football, Maryland. That’s more than some teams have managed this year, and you should feel pretty good about yourself. Go snort a celebratory line of Old Bay on me."
