Now, now....if you enoy freeway reconstruction that seems to take 20 years and makes getting to an otherwise cool zoo a death march from a traffic standpoint, Toledo does indeed have its own charm. You simple have to know where to look for it.

Peppers should have stayed
INCOMING HOT TAKE....INCOMING BAD HOT TAKE....
|11 hours 7 min ago||For The Board's Reference...||
If you are a Browns fan, Lions fan, fan of a few other select teams out there, this is also going to be the drinking thread for the evening. I just thought I would throw that out there now so there wasn't too much overlap in our draft coverage.
|13 hours 49 min ago||My Two Cents...||
I am going to go with others and say Chris Wormley stands a pretty good chance of lasting a good long while in the NFL, but I also believe Peppers and Darboh could find roles which let them hang around in the league a long time too. We have several players who, if they fall to the right team and fit well on those teams, could be staples on Sundays for quite a while and I like having this problem as a Michigan fan.

I think Brian may have nailed it here.
|1 day 9 hours ago||Very Cool...||
A couple days of Chipotle for lunch and Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner will take care of most of that Charmin.
Seriously though, that's a really funny endorsement of sorts and his sense of humor about his own name makes it even better.

Her farewell, as others have said, was 100% class and a great example of how to handle a situation like this.
I also believe she was a bright spot at ESPN - very talented - and she'll be able to take that talent elsewhere very soon so we can continue reading, I hope.
|1 day 16 hours ago||Meanwhile...||
Meanwhile, the SEC is attempting to draft legislation which will - once and for all - ban coaches from giving gifts to prominent members of the world's religious communities.
Except Mike Slive. He's still cool in their estimation.
|1 day 18 hours ago||Looking At The List...||
Looks like ESPN is essentially checking completely out of hockey coverage, and a lot of team-specific bloggers and reporters are getting the boot too. A picture of what ESPN thinks it should become is slowly being painted here, and it is an unwatchable picture, in my own opinion, or rather, moreso than it has already become.
|1 day 22 hours ago||Very Nice...||
Great episode, especially what comes after this....
"Good morning, madam, I've come to read your poet."
"He's in the cupboard under the stairs"
"What is it? a Swinburne? Shelley?"
"No, it's a Wordsworth."
"Ahhh, bloody daffodils."
|1 day 22 hours ago||About This...||
Actually, I was looking forward to the idea of playing a good Washington team in a home-and-home, so if it does get cancelled, then consider me a little disappointed. I would have thought this coincided with the idea of making the non-conference schedule a bit more challenging in the resume-bound playoff era, but maybe I am looking at it wrong.
|2 days 16 hours ago||There's The Problem...||
See, there's the problem - you should have made sure you got the model with the 191 cu in. V6 in it. The speedometer in that model went to - I think - 110 or 120, but really you didn't want to test that POS much past 80 or so. I guess it really works out the same then.
|2 days 17 hours ago||I Don't Get It...||
I guess I don't understand it when talking heads like Kanell will latch onto a piece of information and, without bothering to research or provide context, create a narrative that is both wrong and debasing. Then, when they are presented with evidence contrary to that narrative, they insist on being proudly, bravely wrong and resent that you tried to stop them.
But this is ESPN, so I shouldn't be shocked at all.
|2 days 19 hours ago||Wow...||
I remember thinking when he limped off initially that it was bad, but after hearing him say that, I didn't realize it was so bad that he was within sight of actually losing that leg. Even with all the items that came out later about the injury and the extended absence from the field, I don't know that I would have thought it even then. Cannot imagine being told that either. It definitely puts in perspective some of the dangers of playing the sport.
It would be awesome to see him out there again, but it's totally understandable if we didn't.
|2 days 19 hours ago||Wait A Second...||
Corvetteforum.com gives MGoBlog the 2nd highest number of referrals? How many of you out there are in that long thread about the compression ratio on the LS6 in your 1971 Vette? It has to be a shit ton of MGoBloggers in that thread then.
|2 days 21 hours ago||I Will Say...||
I will say this - it would not shock me if a less-endowed university from one of the P5 conferences decided to propose legislation to the NCAA which would make future trips like this one difficult, at least in theory. Whether or not you could come up with something that could be enforced and not be utterly silly on its face is another matter.
|2 days 22 hours ago||The New Arena...||
This, and now apparently Paul McCartney will be there on October 1st at the new LCA. They really meant what they say about utilizing this place to the fullest, so it will be interesting to see Michigan hoops play a game in here too.
I can't wait for the first time this arena is overbooked and some concert AND hockey are attempting to go at the same time. It could be your only chance to see your least favorite pop act checked into the boards.
|3 days 11 hours ago||Yeah, But...||
Yeah, but sometimes it goes too far, the stupid headlines...
|3 days 12 hours ago||What This Means...||
What this means is that the SEC will immediately move to get a ban on any football practices held inside Italian shopping centers. The proposed legislation will also include any place considered a World Heritage Site as well.
|3 days 17 hours ago||Oh, I Don't Know...||
Oh, I don't know.....
I, for one, welcome our new Drupal overlords. After all, they can't see us and it will be easy to escape in the ensuing confusion.
|3 days 20 hours ago||Akron...||
Part of doesn't necessarily want to face an Akron team that is good enough to get to a National Championship game, but then I realize that it will be roughly 2560 by the time that this happens and I will have been dead for nearly 500 years at this point and I wouldn't be in a position to fret about it.
|3 days 21 hours ago||Many Years Ago...||
Many years ago, yes, and we also visited Naples and ended up being as intrigued and in awe of that city as we were Rome. Also, we ended up on a tour of the ruins of Pompeii and on one of the tours they give of the caldera of Vesuvius. Being on an active volcano was actually really fun...and a a little frightening.
|3 days 22 hours ago||Test Post...||
Can anyone else see this? On my end, the board looks like it always has, but I am seeing what looks like the same issue that we had once before where replies became threads for some reason. Anyone else seeing symptoms of that as well?
|4 days 9 hours ago||All I Can Say Is...||
All I can say is that this is remodeling in the way those of us who have older homes which we could remodel, but then the "I still need a place to sleep and eat" instinct always seems to take over. If nothing else, this is a Shoney's and if they give you permission to destroy...well....who would refuse?

I tend to fish on a purely opportunistic basis. That being said, one of the advanatages of working for a company with a lot of facilities along or near Lake Erie is walleye fishing - I've only been out once this year yet, not on my own boat and not with my own equipment, but between all of us, we managed to get most of a cooler full of decent-sized walleye.
|4 days 18 hours ago||If I Had To Choose...||
Well, if I had to choose, I'll go with Beef Wellington with some grilled asparagus or in-season vegetables and a nice spinach salad with crumbled Bleu cheese and French dressing. As a twist, I will ask for a wine which I know is nearly impossible to get in the area so I can put off the whole dying thing as long as possible.

As I recall, she did have sporadic roles after "Joanie Loves Chachi", but mainly as a guest star on episodes of various shows throughout the 90s and into the early 2000s. Supposedly, she said in interviews that severe depression kept her from landing more substantial work, and I think that the reason she eventually moved to Indiana was to assist with her mother-in-law, whose health was failing.
56 is way too young.
|4 days 22 hours ago||Itinerary...||
I was actually kind of curious about which sites the team will see as well, even though I won't be in Rome this week. Actually, I rather wonder if Harbaugh has any plans at the site of the Circus Maximus in particular - drills or something. Running drills on that site and in the Colosseum would be a Harbaugh thing to do, I would think. Still very jealous that they get a week in the "urbs aeterna" and I don't.
|5 days 10 hours ago||About The Bowl Victory...||
I don't know that the victory over Florida is the most meaningful or favorite really, but it is the first era of the Harbaugh victory I saw after I was allowed to come home from the hospital after my little viral scare (well, another week and I would have been in deep shit, so they told me). It was a great way to take one's mind off what had been a less than ideal - often scary - previous 10 days.
