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.

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 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."

The best part about the hat in orbit gif is Asiasi following the trajectory of the hat, making as if to catch it, and then watching it fall quietly to the ground.
EDIT: Also, Simeon Smith smiling as the hat goes up.

Question for those who've watched a lot more tape than I have: How common is holding, really? Like is the amount of holding Seth points out on this play typical? Hard to tell in real time.

He was already moving, so you have to add a bunch of time to account for the deadstop start of a 100m.
Still, yes, he's quite fast.

Yeah as the season's gone on, I've been wondering if/when they'd take away the Dangerman tag for Chesson. Through seven games: 18 catches for 275 yards and a TD, 8 rushes for 49 yards and a TD. Or to put it differently, he's averaging about 2 catches for 39 yards per game, and about one rush for 7 yards per game.
I know we've focused on running and that Speight hasn't exactly looked like the next coming of Tom Brady, but that's pretty quiet for a guy who was getting so much hype coming into the year.
Counterpoint: Why do I even care about this?
Rebuttal: Great question, no idea.
