So here's mine.
A few years ago I was playing right field in rec league softball. The batter hit a low, hard line drive toward the line. I didn't want it to drop in so I sprinted forward, then lost it in the lights of the field across the park (weird angle). I had my glove up but it skipped right over the top and nailed me over the left eye. Didn't get knocked out, but felt pretty nauseous and it swelled immediately. Also opened a small gash over my eye.
A few hours later after a trip to the ER, I looked like this:
A CT scan revealed that I had crushed the frontal sinus cavity. After the swelling went down, there was a palpable cavity over the eye.
2 weeks later I had surgery to repair the sinus cavity with some titanium plates. They accessed the area by making an incision from ear to ear over the head and then pulling the skin down to the brow. The surgeon shared a photo of this with my dad. I still haven't looked at it.
But, I survived the surgery! Post-op really, really sucked. I was throwing up a lot which increased my blood pressure and led to some nasty bleeding.
2 days later I went home. My face was still really swollen, and I had a huge incision from ear to ear with lots of staples, but it was better than being in the hospital.
But, I made a complete recovery in time. I have played softball a few times since and I definitely feel a bit skittish on hard line drives. Kind of shifted my interests to other sports.
On the positive side, it did give me a great forum avatar.

...the xrxs streaming link I had saved in my VLC player brought up the UM-Indiana game. Was really confusing.
Anyone have a good VLC link?

I thought the BTN commentator made a good point, actually. It's important just for the sake of getting more game minutes for the young guys (okay, that's basically everyone). Every competitive minute on the floor equals more growth for them.

|2 weeks 3 days ago||Oh Spike||
He may never play in the NBA, but he is going to DOMINATE some rec league 20 years from now.

I'd be really surprised if they allow month-to-month billing. I am betting that you have to sign up for some minimum contract period. Otherwise they'd have tons of people treating it like a pay-per-view service for big events on ESPN.

ESPN2 is listed as one of the channels. It's not clear whether it's included as one of the 12 for $20, or if it's part of the additional $5 packages.

...development would have been delayed if everyone stayed (eg, Stauskas isn't forced to be the #1 option if Burke stays), but yes...that would have been something to see.

...we finally execute?
Actually, my secret hope is that just prior to kickoff, the hiring of Tom Herman as head coach is announced over the PA system (we'll have to pay someone off in the booth), and then as someone escorts Hoke from the stadium, Herman crosses the field in full view and pulls off his tOSU gear to reveal Michigan garb underneath.
It could happen.

...punted from the opponent's 29 yard line, not from his own 29 yard line. I'm guessing we wouldn't mind him punting from his own 29 yard line.

First Row works fine on Chrome with uBlock. There's usually at least 2 or 3 different feeds -- it takes all of 30 seconds to find the one with the best image quality.

Obviously, I'd be happier if he stayed, but I can't blame him. If it really looks like he'll get a decent guaranteed contract, then you have to weigh the possible improvement (and higher draft position) next vs the possibility of serious injury.
The ironic thing about McGary is that while he may come back because of the injury, he also may be a cautionary tale that leads more outstanding Michigan players leaving early.

"Stauskas from Canada" as he lets fly a 3 from about 4 feet behind the line.
