That's OK, Tacopants never catches anything anyways. Worst hands ever.
|23 hours 10 min ago||No, the Saints coaches||
No, the Saints coaches explicitly said, "here's money for putting that guy on a cart" or knocking him out of the game. There were other incentives too, but that was the bounty issue. It wasn't just "hit that guy really hard." It was "ruin his livelihood, and here's cash for doing so."

A lineman-only 7-on-7 flag football game would be absolutely tremendous. I would watch that.
|1 day 2 hours ago||Yes to this and the below.||
Yes to this and the below. Incentive =/= bounty. The NFL had every right to levy punishment for bounties, which are payments for actually injuring someone. How that ever got confused with incentives for getting a sack, and then players and fans complaining that the NFL had no business punishing people on that basis, is beyond me.

Is there any possible stronger indictment of the fashion design industry than the fact that it's forever being used by rappers and folks like Plaxico Burress to expand their personal brands, and that they're usually successful in doing so?

See, this is the problem here. Poor Jay Harris had no such mentor to pass him sage advice like that. If only someone had gotten him in touch with the Coner. Guess that's the Michigan Difference.
|1 day 16 hours ago||Listen, it's fun hating Ohio||
Listen, it's fun hating Ohio State, but if you can't recognize that Michigan draws a sizable portion of its brand, value, and ineffable Michigan-ness from Ohio State, and vice versa, then you gotta grow up a bit and smell the coffee.

The biggest naval base in the world is in Virginia. Control that and you control the entire Atlantic.

This is why "follow your passion" isn't always good advice. Because sometimes you really suck at your passion.

The way I put it on my blog a little while back was similar; it doesn't have to necessarily be a bridge to the south, but what it does for the B1G is keep the eastward avenues open whether it be north or south. Remember there was a Delany quote, and Barry Alvarez too, obliquely referencing a need to keep Penn State happy. (Delany talked about Rutgers and Maryland "solidifying the expansion we've done in the past," and obviously wasn't referencing Nebraska.)
A little fear that PSU might have been quietly mulling departure (more than likely, to the ACC) is understandably disquieting for the B1G. However unlikely it ever was, it would've blocked the B1G from ever accessing the eastern seaboard if the ACC had PSU, Pitt, Cuse, Maryland, and BC. Rutgers and UConn wouldn't have been B1G options. Now the B1G can, if it ever wants to, explore all up and down the coast.
On a totally separate note, recruiting in NJ and MD is nice, but the presidents don't give a shit.

"Over 60,000" is no doubt the paid attendance; I went to the Purdue-CMU game and while it was very well-attended, it didn't put more than about 45,000 butts in the seats. And that had a lot more to do with CMU than a Big Ten team. At least two Chip fans for every Boilermaker.

I don't deny it. Twice the teams is more than twice the fun, though.
|3 days 3 hours ago||I think you're selling UVA||
I think you're selling UVA short. Truthfully I will be shocked if he doesn't go there. UVA's attractive for the reasons you mentioned but they've also done a great job selling Brown on what they offer in his chosen field of study, and he's dead serious about that aspect of his recruitment.
P.S. His mom died six years ago, so I have to really question how plugged in you are, or if perhaps you're mixing up Brown with someone else.

They've obviously made an executive decision to give Old Lady Tyrell a much larger role in the show than the book. I can't say enough how much I approve of this.

She's such a Lannister in that regard, and has a very minimal brain-to-mouth filter. I love it.
|3 days 17 hours ago||Interesting theory, the crows||
Interesting theory, the crows as sort of avatars of the old gods. I had never really considered that. I always just figured that crows always hang around dead things (in the ASOIAF world) and wights are dead things. But the way you put that is interesting.
I find it ironic, though, that of all the various gods floating around Westeros and elsewhere, it seems to me the only gods that never do squat for anyone are the Seven. I can't recall any time in which they've proven themselves useful to those that rely on them.

A commercial I hate, as real refs would say, thanks for your input kid, now inbound the ball already. It's not like they can change the call.

But only a fun exercise. We're pretty much locked in at five now; 4x16 was never more than a figment of many imaginations.

Honestly, given the mostly no-name roster Russia brought to the tournament, I can't say I didn't expect the US to be able to pull this off. Russia lost to France(!!) earlier, so this clearly isn't the powerhouse team they fielded last year. 8-3 - now that's surprising.
