Such a gritty play to just drop the ball in a critical situation. Clutch as always.

Fun fact: Warren Buffett's total salary last year was less than $500,000. His base salary of $100,000 has been static for 25 years.

I also read somewhere that Maryland doesn't allow opposing bands in their stadium, which is supremely stupid. Maybe the conference will force them to drop that idiocy.

The MMB tried to go to Penn State several times in the early '00s. The issue was that PSU wouldn't give them sufficient seating in the stands and wouldn't put them on the field. Maybe with new leadership they'll allow the MMB to go there, though it is a very long trip by bus.
If not PSU they'll probably travel to wherever is closest, since shorter trips are cheaper and the AD foots most of the bill. West Lafayette, Bloomington, and Evanston will be the likely destinations.

I think Desmond Morgan's best work was this pair of tweets from a few weeks ago:
My sister is having twins. I told her the only way I'm coming to her baby events is if I get to name a child. That's acceptable right?
I mean she is having two of them... Don't be selfish about this

Just to clarify, Sagan wasn't "elderly" when Tyson met him for the first time. It was 1974/5 so Sagan would have been 40 or 41.

When I was a kid, my family went down to Atlanta for the '96 Summer Olympics and one of the events we saw was men's gymnastics. There was a ton going on at once, so it was a bit of sensory overload, but I was not bored. I remember mainly watching the vault because dudes going off a springboard and doing a bunch of crazy flips is always entertaining.

HoC season 2 was quite good. I was pleased with what they did with Claire, I thought the writing for her was much better this season. And the final scene of the finale was excellent.

Whenever we play Wisconsin, I'm reminded of a (cool) story (brah).
A few years ago I was flying out of Washington-Dulles late in college basketball season (right around the start of the tournament). I was on a shuttle bus to the terminal and the bus driver was listening to a sports talk radio show. I was sort of half-listening and the hosts were talking about the upcoming tournament and who the teams to look out for were. Then, one of them brought up Wisconsin. The other host then went into a rant about Bo Ryan, ending with the gem: "If you cloned Bo Ryan 50 times and put the clones in charge of 50 teams across the country, the NCAA would drop men's basketball as a sport within two years!"
I got a lot of weird looks from the other passengers, but I had a good long laugh over that one.

Just to clarify, that was for the team ice skating event. They'll do the individual competition later in the Olympics.

And I forgot to mention, said equestrian events were not even held in Australia. They did them in Sweden.

For the 1956 Summer Olympics in Melbourne, the equestrian events were actually held several months before the rest of the Olympics because of some issue with Australian quarantine laws.

Ok...but if I'm reading this correctly, there's still an unexplained year-and-a-half-long gap between November/December 2009 when the alleged assault occurred and April 2011 when the D0E handed out new guidelines, plus another 4 months until U of M adopted the interim guidelines.

I want to know why this took 4 years. After Gibbons' actions, the prolonged amount of time between the incident and this is my greatest concern. That points to troublingly poor institutional handling of the case.
