Don't praise the machine.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||I've watched far more||
I've watched far more baseball than any human being should ever watch in a lifetime and I've only ever seen it once. Corey Koskie came way out of the baseline and high on Chuck Knoblauch years ago. IIRC Knoblauch played the next day.
I believe it was most recently called in 2007, against the Mets oddly enough.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||Oh||
Well that's what I get for talking about a place I moved from fifteen years ago I guess.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||Canadian high school||
It's Quebec where high school lasts as long as you want it to. In the other provinces (or at least Ontario, the relevant province) it's the same as American high school with an optional Grade 13 year.

When does his collaboration with David Cone come out?

I someday wish to be as heterosexual as you are, you big manly man you.

Dennis, see those alluring lights?

Cheevers is one of the first, and certainly the most famous, guys to paint his helmet with any sort of design. Gilles Gratton is also famous for his design and also for being a crazy person.

|1 year 33 weeks ago||I've been in a coma since||
I've been in a coma since August 31, 2007. How's the team been looking since then?
|1 year 33 weeks ago||Certainly not the first||
In fact I think it was Brian referencing Dig Me Out that convinced me to give them a shot.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Well you didn't specify NHL so||
2014 Team Canada Olympic team was the most dominant seven consecutive games I've ever seen. Those Sweden and USA games could have gone on ten hours each and neither team was ever going to score on them.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||God that's great||
I will always love Mike Hart. What a hero.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Yes||
I'll never forget the one run where Hart jukes and breaks like fifteen tackles in the backfield before finally getting loose and sprinting down field for a touch down. Best part is the way the fullback on it starts celebrating even though he totally whiffed on every block he attempted on the play.
|1 year 36 weeks ago||Still say it||
Someone who was on the field when the touchdown was scored has to kick the extra point. I don't see how this isn't the most exciting idea.

Gus Johnson screaming "FAROKMENASH" will always be my favorite thing ever.
|1 year 37 weeks ago||Whoo||
I believe this is the second time my alma mater has been mentioned on this blog. The other time was for the whole Todd O'Brien mess three years ago. Any publicty is good publicity!
|1 year 37 weeks ago||Biggest bunch of bullshit I've seen in thirty years||
And you know, Jim Boehem was very consistently following the rules the whole time. I have to laugh a little bit when our own posters call it cheating. And they actually listen to a couple of compliance officers who will never be athletic direcors if they think Boeheim cheated. Of course you guys won't write that because somebody said it. Without Jim Boeheim the Big East wouldn't have lasted ten ****ing years. OK? Not ten. The rest of the coaches just weren't ready, they needed him. Without him there, not ten. the NCAA wouldn't even be here for us to have this conversation about. And everyone is telling me and writing about Boeheim cheating? The most bullshit thing I have seen in thirty years. And especially when it comes from our sport's own fans, but you quote somebody else, an anonymous compliance officer. Let the compliance officer come up to me and say "Jim Boeheim cheated." I'd like to see one of them come up to me and say that. All of his moves were doubly scrutinized, and the voters voted him to the Hall of Fame in 2005. Because the voters don't know **** I guess.

Looks like I can't upvote right now, so take this manual response as your +1 for that link.
|1 year 39 weeks ago||Drunk REM||
Pretty much the greatest thing ever. Any of those early 80s REM studio outtakes are the best. My all time favorite is Voice of Harold when Stipe forgot the words to 7 Chinese Brothers and just read off liner notes to a record he found in the studio during his take.

I predate mgopoints. I became more of a lurker right around the time the point system was introduced.
|1 year 40 weeks ago||About me||
I have been reading mgoblog for an insanely long time and it's sort of depressing at this point.
|1 year 40 weeks ago||Holding||
Yeah, IIRC it was on Larry Stevens, he got into the backfield cleanly and a Spartan just grabbed him and held on to block him. If it wasn't for the clock issue everyone would remember that play.
|1 year 40 weeks ago||Stop||
Crable doesn't deserve to be shit on years later for two mental mistakes and unsubstantiated rumours. He came from a tough background, was a hell of a player, and doesn't deserve his own fan base treating him like this.

Stop talking to me about him, everyone I meet.

Please note Adam Weiss died on the way back to his home planet.
|1 year 42 weeks ago||Outdoor Games||
I've been to one. (Devils vs. Rangers in Yankee Stadium last year). Cool novelty, glad I saw an outdoor game once, but I have no desire to ever do it again though. As Brian said, it was freezing cold and I was way further from the ice than I would have been at an NHL arena.
|1 year 44 weeks ago||Whatever||
No matter where Drew Henson is, I take comfort in the fact that somewhere out there, David Terrell still has a bomb ass dick.
