I found that odd as well. Sort of like when the accused in a capital case doesn't take the stand in their defense. Doesn't mean the defendant is necessarily guilty but it always makes me wonder why somebody innocent wouldn't be screaming as loud as they can their defense.

If legit, and I have no way of knowing if it is, it is poorly constructed and certainly not providing the reader nearly enough pertinent details of the situation to get actual funding from complete strangers.

I dunno....shouldn't we like SCHEDULE some night games before we worry about what to call the night games?

I guess I AM "that lady". The desire to drive 3hours one way each home game got killed by Hoke's incompetence and Brandon's greed.

Google be damned - this gets my seal of approval.

The "cure" could also be to remove helmets from the players. Once the illusion of protection is gone you'd see players stop leading with their head in about 5 seconds.
|2 days 23 hours ago||People here point to the||
People here point to the addition of Smith, Shumpert & Mozgov as being the turning point in the season for the Cavs but the reality is it was the removal of that ball-hogging, three-point launching, no defense playing waste of court space that got us going in the right direction.
I can still see that selfish jerkoff pounding the air out of the ball at the top of the key while Love, Lebron, Irving & Andy would be standing around watching him. And with 3 seconds to go on the shot clock he'd either fire up a contested three or try and out-of-control runner. Both of which seldom worked.
When I heard what we were able to get for him in return I thought our GM should be immediately made executive of the year in the NBA. Waiters is a team killer.
Picture a younger and slightly more athletic Stephon Marbury......

Deep into the playoffs? Oh that's rich.....
They will go exactly one more round StephenR - one. My Cavs will dispose of them in 6 games IMO.
See you guys next week!
|3 days 34 min ago||Agree with your first||
Agree with your first sentence completely. Disagree with your second though - not sure they have enough firepower throughout the roster to be considered co-favorites for the title no matter who they get to replace Brooks. They USED TO have that depth level but the Hardin trade changed that for the worse.
IMO I would guess a lot of the people gnashing their teeth and rendering their garments over his firing are the same people that bemoan the NBA for playing a style (hero-ball) that hasnt been employed by successful teams in almost 10 years.
And it looks like a LOT of experts have problems with their "NBA IQ" given his rather pedestrian rankings when judged by his peers

Agreed. Anytime a company with a vested stake in the distribution network and more money than God enters a market directly it gets VERY interesting indeed.

I had completely forgotten that bet. Seeing that it involved two parts (one of which I've won - one is yet to be determined) why dont we wait a couple of weeks to settle up?
FYI my email address is DBruce2@hotmail.com. Send me an email and we can figure out the details.
BTW - I was at the game yesterday. El Crappo seats but I was in the building. Actually not that different of seats that I had back in 1989 when I got to see THIS in person....
|5 days 2 hours ago||My guess is they forgot the||
My guess is they forgot the word "play" because then the bleeped out word "fucking" fits perfectly.
FWIW the fact that we have a head coach that won't stand and clap and say "that's ok" when players can't or won't take instructions is music to my 55 year old ears. I absolutely LOVE that he holds players accountable and my guess is the players are getting a heaping helping of accountability like they've NEVER seen at Michigan before.
And what was the gesture that sent him off? I'd bet heavily on the eye roll. That's the participation trophy generations go-to look when they feel someone in authority is telling them something they really don't want to hear.

About 15 years ago I took my three kids to lunch at Taco Bell and the guy in front of me in line was stoned out of his mind (imagine that). He had a $20 dollar bill and was determined to spend each and every nickle on it for lunch leading to an extremely LONG ordering process as he would order stoner-style (give me one cheeeeeeeeseeeeee ennn-chaaaaa-laaaa-daaaaaaaaa), try and figure out how much he had spent and then how much he had left.
In the midst of this a very old lady (prolly in her 80's) came up to the same cashier screaming at him because she was SURE he had short-changed her a quarter. So this 16 year old cashier had stoner-boy trying to figure out how much food he could buy for $20 and a very pissed off geriatic yelling at him over a quarter.
My kids all watched this with wide-eyed wonder as stoner-boy got three HUGE bags of taco-bell and stumbled off to try and eat it and probably decided to never take a job in fast food if they could avoid it.

Coffee, low sugar OJ, an English Muffin & a bowl of corn chex.
But I'm heading downtown to the Cavs/Celtics game in a few hours and TRUST ME - after a few pre-game beverages I'll be ready to go!

Common man he clearly stated HE hadn't seen it posted-not that everybody else hadn't seen it.

Have you ever met a 16 year old boy before? They are "super self conscious about EVERYTHING concerning their appearance and my guess is he's heard about his height and his ears more than once or twice already from his peers. Probably not something he liked seeing written about him.

What are these "words" you are using? I thought the king of GIF's would find a dentist thread a freaking lay-up for God's sake. Here - I'll help

I didnt want to comment and jinx things but I didnt have a TV feed here in Ohio so I "watched" the game toggling back and forth between ESPN gamecast (which is just about useless in Hockey it's so behind the action) and you guys.
You think YOU were nervous - try following the game with "woo", "MY MAN" "bullshit call" and "fuckity, fuck, fuck" as your play by play.
But we won right? Prolly have to do this again so as to not screw up the karma.
Edit: Was going to say the same thing Alum96. I cannot even count how many games in the 90s where the Wings would massively outplay, outshoot, outeverything but outscore the other team and lose - usually at home. I didnt see it obviously but 46-14 speaks for itslef that's for sure.

The problem is JORDAN is the one pepetuating the "myth":
"Jordan invited Herring to a ceremony at Chicago’s United Center after his first retirement, in 1994, when a statue was unveiled and his number retired. Jordan furthered the “I got cut” myth during the ceremony, and offered backhanded praise. Jordan noted how much Herring worked with him to improve his game, then added the zinger, “”He knew he made a mistake! He just tried to correct it.”
The article goes on to say the core reason Jordan was put on JV was because he was too short at the time and the coach wanted him to get PT but clearly Jordan thinks he was cut from the team.

In fairness to the OP it's not like Spiceyweiner's thread title would indicate that's what it's about so I understand why he could double post.
EDIT - my bad, didnt see the edit until just now. I guess it DOES indicate it's content at this point.

Michael Jordan's high school when he was in 10th grade. Urban legend says he got cut from that squad so, if true, that must've been the MOTHER of all high school teams assembled.
