|3 days 8 hours ago||Congrats!||
UCSD? I work with lots of docs At UCSD--curious what specialty, if you care to share.
I've been here for 12 years... love it.
And, Costa Rica was my favorite trip, ever. Sounds like a really exciting time for you!
|3 days 10 hours ago||Leaving Tuesday||
For Cancun. A little work...a little vacation with the kids...
Not great timing with some personal stuff going on..I feel like a heel for not being more excited, but I have a feeling I'll love it when I'm just chillin' with a book and sand between my toes.
I never really did great spring break trips when in school, but my kids' spring breaks are pretty awesome. Last year was the best--Maui with my family.

Own it..move on.

First time I ever used the "time out, Chris" card... ever. Such a worn out joke--but him saying that 'every high school kid in America knows better' was hilarious.

The replays of Beilein coming in the locker room with a giant squirt gun!

He's lucky to still be on a team. The punk-est of Duke punks.

South Carolina is trying hard to screw this up.

Kiss me Carlos!

|1 week 6 days ago||This --my responses||
Have been bugging the hell out of me all night. Would have loved to turtle all those responses. I read too quickly, made assumptions--mis-read and went bat shit. I am good at self reflection--but I should be better at pausing before responding.
Yeah, I have close friends, and other friends who actually have kids with gender identity issues. Kids I've known since they were very young. One was 7 when I met him (she was a her then), the other was 2. Real life shit. Real life families, and I hear so many insensitive things, and read a few things here, and very wrongly, jumped to conclusions without reading well and undertstanding more.
The kid that I've known since she was 2, was born a boy and now lives as a 14 year old girl-- goes to school, plays club soccer on a girls team--which is how she identifies. Nobody knows except those who are close to the family, and a few of us outsiders with kids the same age and knew her as "him" when he was 2, and wearing dresses, etc (more than that--not that simple).
The sports/competition part of it is a different subject, but I can tell you that kids can, and do, get hormones that stop puberty (pause it), so these kids can actually 'go back' should they choose (they never do choose to go back, from what I've heard). So, this (now 13 year old) trans girl does not have the testosterone that a boy has. Anyhow..I certainly do not have answers for fairness in competition. I just don't like this group of people being judged and marginalized by people who don't understand or try to understand. Regardless of their small percentage of the population, they are still human, and I am pretty defensive of them.
Thank you for accepting my apology. I still may change my MGoName--may need a new identity soon if I keep freaking out.
|2 weeks 8 hours ago||Yeah.||
Would like to remove my comments.. but alas..living with them. Sorry again.
|2 weeks 8 hours ago||SIncerest apologies||
I did fly off the handle..not gonna get into why-but I'm off base...
Sensitive issue, and I do see that the LakeYale comments didn't warrant my reaction. I do think there are a lot of ignorant comments as well--but I did not help my cause. Super sensitive, and I did not use a filter.
Carry on, and please accept my apologies.
|2 weeks 8 hours ago||Agree||
Sorry...I'm a jerk today.

Determine what they need..others don't
|2 weeks 10 hours ago||Well thought out||
And articulated comment. Thanks.
|2 weeks 10 hours ago||What's he rallying?||
His small pussy grabbing hands? His bromance/break up with Putin?
There...maybe that's political enough to shut down the comments.
|2 weeks 10 hours ago||Hold my beer||
I got this..
|2 weeks 10 hours ago||Just read the responses...||
You can tell.
|2 weeks 10 hours ago||Wow||
Never saw so many exposed as ignorant as in this thread.
Thinking there are a lot of people who think they know a lot of things, and don't. Maybe best to stfu if you don't know anything about the subject.
|2 weeks 10 hours ago||Good to know.||
Was wondering what you'd be fine with. Got it.
|2 weeks 10 hours ago||Curious?||
What kind of mental health do they need.
I'll hang up and listen.

Goodbye Pluto. Special release, and we got there when the 2 hour line was just winding down. Got a case and it is very special.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I bought||
This boxed biscuit mix for my kids...seriously delish. I can understand his joy from the combination of great basketball, a great buzz and something that doughy and buttery.
I fully expect the thread tomorrow to be "I drank too much and ate too many biscuits, but how bout them Wolverines!!??" tomorrow
|3 weeks 7 hours ago||Call me crazy but||
Sometimes being alive and well outweigh an inconvience for a basketball tournament. They'll be fine.
|3 weeks 15 hours ago||Your hearsay||
Does not sound far fetched at all. People like that can get away with a lot of shit.
As for the laws about reporting...there are laws, but there are also human standards of "right and wrong" and looking out for your fellow human being. So anyone looking the other way on this should be hung by their scrotum, or female version of that. May not be criminal, but its a person with no soul who looks the other way.
|3 weeks 15 hours ago||In an effort to learn more..||
I just read this, from December.
Sounds like he is a sick fucker who got away with this shit because of who he was. I hear you about PSU/football/Olympics...but this is horrific. If true -- we are talking years and so many victims. One victim is one too many..and this?? Omg...horrific.
Needs to be publicized...mother fucker.
|3 weeks 15 hours ago||If all this is true..||
This story is huge. I admittedly am not looking at a ton of sports news lately (outside of here), and I am on the West Coast, so Michigan sports are not headlining anything. However, this seems as big of impact as PSU.
Sure seems like it would be headlining major news sources.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||OHHHH!!||
I thought you were going to talk about the Gilmore Girls. My daughter thinks I'm Lorelei and she's Rory.
