It's not at all the huge blunder you make it, Bando. It was a short-hop to SS- she had to hesitate to see if it was caught. At that point you can shuffle off but it's totally possible that the SS would go to second then throw home, in which case she's toast. So you have to go on the throw to first, which she probably could have made it home, but that's also the best fielding team in the nation. All this happened in about 1 second. When it happened, I didn't think she would/could go. If it was a true ground ball, then yes. But the possibility of it being caught made it a difficult play.

Exactly. Didn't think anyone would ever talk plot armor about GoT at this point.
Since there's so many Walking Dead comparisons going on: Rick in TWD has so much plot armor it makes the show very tough to totally buy into.

Isn't it amazing how everyone (myself included) so loved a scene in which two people talked. That was it. A pure dialog scene between Tyrion and Dany was met with universal acclaim. That's how great those characters, those actors and the events and context that has led to their meeting all are.

Careful man. I'd say casting news is pretty spoilerish.

If you check out the memes flying around twitter at #GameOfThrones right now, you'll be thoroughly entertained.

Amazing episode. I greatly enjoyed the first 5 episodes of this season. Like most, episode 6 was a huge downer for me and episode 7 did an OK job at recovering that. But this episode - and the promise for the upcoming two - has be just as excited about the series as any other point.
Soooo fun to be past book material in some points and not past in others. I'll leave it at that.
Lana of the Canals and not Cat of the Canals? Okay. I appreciated the quick shot of the cat running by when they first showed Arya/Cat/Lana in the canals, but why not take the name Cat like in the books?!

I mean, who's to make the rules, but my suggestion is:
There's about 2-4 HUGE book things left. Some storylines have already passed the books. I'd say you can talk fan theory, but you should make it extremely obvious you are talking about book spoilers if you are going to reference any of those remaining big book plots.
Or, you be safe and say nothing. Actually, probably safer to do the latter.

Damn. That sinkerball is pretty nasty. Not hard to see why that guy has a 0.23 ERA

No it isn't. It's one of those super rare plays. Should he have let it fall? Probably. But that's still giving the team another out. Good chance he was going to score anyway.
I agree it was a mistake, but your comment is completely off-base.

WTF there's no way you send the runner on first on a 3-1 pitch w/ runner on third and 2 outs. Idiot announcers

|2 days 18 hours ago||Groundball to first, pitcher||
Groundball to first, pitcher covering. Pitcher had trouble finding the base, but actually had at at least once, possibly twice, before his final attempt to get his foot on the base was late. It looked funky and the ump blew the call, thinking that the pitcher didn't get his foot on the bag until the third attempt.
Now there are runners on first and second with 2 outs.

I'll neg for WD. It's a 1 run game with 2 innings to go. With UL's pen it's a tough task, but it's still just a single run for jimmy's sake.

Okay, it was unorthodox, but we've got a runner on second! 2 outs in the bottom of the 7th, need a big hit to tie the game here.
|2 days 19 hours ago||Walks are killer, especially||
Walks are killer, especially 2-out walks in a 1-run game.
Still have 9 outs to get a run, though.

Yeah, unfortunate is an understatement. I've never seen big letters below the ass on baseball pants.

Except no one player makes anywhere close to $400,000 for the school/NCAA.
|6 days 15 hours ago||His scholarship would cover||
His scholarship would cover the dorms, which comes with unlimited meal plan. He chose to forgoe that for the stipend.
Jabrill might be in the 0.01% of student athletes who actually makes more money for a school than he gets in various compensation. That's yet to be seen. But, until then, he should probably be thrilled with the amazing financial and educational gift he has earned and been rewarded with.
|6 days 15 hours ago||So, the stipend is based on||
So, the stipend is based on the dorm costs for each school. Michigan's website has a single dorm room listed at $14,100 for the fall/winter terms. That's roughly $1,700 a month. If the stipend is that much, that's not bad at all for a college student. You get a roommate and you're looking at over a thousand dollars a month for food, transportation, weekend fun, etc. On top of the free food, gear, clothing, tutors, etc they already get.
I struggle to see the plight of the poor college athlete that's on full scholarship. Also, starting August 1, the stipend will increase since the "full cost of attendance" figures that were approved will go into effect.
|6 days 15 hours ago||Exactly. He chose to take||
Exactly. He chose to take the stipend and pay rent vs. live in dorms. The stipend is pretty good too (at least as of 5 years ago), so it would seem he's going all out on rent.
Save me the starving comments. They are pretty distasteful to people actually starving.

Getting to your own point, if rowing wins a Nat'l championship and nobody else knows/cares about it, that's fine - it's for the benefit of those student athletes, primarily.
Though, there are limits to everything. There are many, if not dozens, of great sports that are not D1 teams at Michigan. If costs a lot of money to run successful programs. You can't add at will.

Exactly. It absolutely, obviously does not NEED to happen.

Don't buy the "share the ice" argument. Yost is already shared with a TON of people.
