|1 day 22 hours ago||Officiating was.....good?||
Might be a first for me personally but coming from somebody who ALWAYS bitches about the officials after a Michigan loss I didnt see anything last night that bothered me. Didnt yell at the TV once and never even got to do my impersonation of the announcer calling yet another brutal, one-sided, unfair call after another against my beloved Michigan Wolverines. I think M got a fair whistle and the disparity in calls was more a result of the style of play of the two teams than anything else.
My wife asked me almost immediately after the game ended "well....what do you think?" My response was "didnt play our best game but had a shot at the end and it didnt go down - oh well." I wasnt mad and I certainly wasnt dissapointed in either our effort or the refs.
This is kinda wierd to be honest.

Yes he may end up spending the rest of his career at Wichita State but it wont be because of their conference affiliation.
It will be because of this IMO
|4 days 13 hours ago||um....no he didnt||
I got no dog in a Pistons-Nets grudge match but I just watched the highlights and he most definitely didn't travel. Now.....did he double dribble? That I cant really tell but if you watch the highlight and wait for the final camera angle you'll see he does dribble twice (both are hard to see -the second dribble especially hard to see) but it does look to me like he might've grabbed the ball with both hands on the second dribble.
Why am I spending so much time analysing the end game calls for a shit game with two shit teams? Now that's a completely different question......

With God-awful QB coaching last year and a supporting cast second only to my Browns for sheer awfullness here were Kaps stats last year
QB rating 90.7
Seems pretty good to me. Shit, I'd take him here in Cleveland all day long over any of the three QBs in the draft or even the future hall of famer Jimmy Garrapolo but sadly he's poison right now so my guess is he's going to have a hard time finding an owner willing to face the fan (and Presidential) backlash that will come with signing him.

It's ridiculously easy. I take my boat over to Pele Island about two-three times a summer to visit their winery and listen to music. When I arrive in Canada I call somebody on the phone in Toronto and read to them my passport information and give them my boat registration number. They ask me how many people on board and if I've got passengers without passports I lie and give them a lower number.
When I return to the states I again call a number and because I've got a GOES card (I've been vetted for international travel) all I do is tell them I'm home and confirm the boat registration. I could have 100 angry terrrorists on board and nobody would ever know.

Wisconsin: poutine, Pabst & cows
|4 days 21 hours ago||Burke vs Walton vs Morris||
Walton has thicker and stronger body. Will hold up better in the more physical NBA Plays better D. Not a great handle, not a great outside shot.
Burke has a better handle, better outside shot and can create own shot if needed. Weak defensively.
To me Burke is the far better player and he's struggling to stick in the NBA. Walton's game is more Darius Morris than Trey Burke and we all know how Morris worked out in the bigs.
|5 days 13 hours ago||Meanwhile down in Cleveland....||
Lots and lots of optimism for the Tribe down here. Starting pitching is absolutely loaded with Kluber, Carrasco, Salazar Bauer and Tomlin. And bullpen looks solid as hell with Shaw, Miller & Allen. Add in Encarnacion (people here still cant believe Dolan shelled out the money to sign him) and it's World Series or bust for Chief Wahoo.

We get it-you like Wagner....so do we. But publishing the same story twice in just 5 hours is pushing it.

You didnt think I meant one word of what I wrote. The GIF wasnt sort-of a clue?
|6 days 15 hours ago||I think you are right||
Misstimied my jump on that one.
|6 days 15 hours ago||I dont know yet||
Ask me again a week from Monday when our basketball season finishes up.
|6 days 15 hours ago||I'm sorry but this thread is just WRONG!||
Michigan State players are fellow Michiganders and they played Kansas hard despite their youth and unfavorable draw. They are extremely well coached and I was rooting for them to win to uphold the conference banner. We shouldnt mock them - we should respect and honor them for an outstanding game and outstanding season. Job well done Sparty - well done!
|6 days 17 hours ago||I dont like these posts at ALL||
Whether you agree or disagree on Stringer's position on Beilein he's allowed to have it and shouldnt have to defend himself in a thread created solely for "calling him out". The point of a board like this (I thought) was to express different opinions and ideas - not to just march lockstep in groupthink supporting all things MIchigan. Stringer has always been respectful and given good board input and doesnt deserve this one bit and he's definitely entitled to not like Beilein even if the recent results indicate otherwise.
It's crap IMO and the mods should take it down.

|1 week 1 day ago||Absolutely root for Sparty||
I will cheer them on to victory with same passion and enthusiasm that they do for "scUM"
|1 week 1 day ago||Damn||
Give the TV producers credit. They managed to get ALL FOUR games into a commercial at the same time right now. That's impressive.
YOU ARE GOING TO WATCH ONE OF OUR SHITTY COMMERCIALS DAMMIT.

The 69th best team according to the great Mark Hollis.

|1 week 1 day ago||This is quite surprising||
Maybe it's just me but I sure expected better from MSU. I mean wouldnt you think that a team with only 14 losses on the season who lost three of their last four games and beat nobody of note all year and had their best player go down with a season ending injury would do much better?

I participated in the afternoon drinking thread.
BTW I dont think i've ever rooted for Miami in any sport at any time to win at anything.
|1 week 1 day ago||Vegas bet story||
If that's true that dude is insane. If he's got enough money to put up 10K to win $30 he definitely has enought money that he doesnt need to worry about getting comp for anything.
I wouldnt put up 10IK to win $30 if the bet was "will it be dark tonight".
|1 week 1 day ago||Not just us||
ESPN repeatidly reports the Golden State Warriors havent lost two straight home games in over two years and havent lost three games in a row in almost three.
Now I know I'm old but I seem to remember the dubs doing both.....just last June.
Edit - wrong thread. Too much afternoon beer.
|1 week 2 days ago||Was my post considered in appropriate?||
If so I apologize. What did I say that was a problem?

Berenson: 'Nothing’s decided, there’s no ultimatums, nothing like that. So you can forget about it for now.' Trust was Red post game- doesn't sound to me like man who wants to retire.

Red just said he was "disappointed" about talk regarding his future and would meet with Warde after the frozen four.
|1 week 2 days ago||Sadly - yes i did know that||
But did YOU know in the original aired pilot the robot was programmed by Dr. Smith to destroy the Jupiter and because Dr. Smith miscalculated his escape and got stuck on board he was was able to stop him (although he did throw the ship off course hence the name "Lost in Space". The pilot episode was not made available to syndication so most people have never seen it unless you remember when it first aired OR you bought the boxed set when they began selling the series to the general public.
AND did you know there was actually a second, unaired pilot episode that was much, much darker than the one they ulitmately ran? In that episode the Robinsons crash on a desolate planet and the storylines were planned to go far less "camp" and far more serious/dark? CBS felt that was too "edgy" for the time so they went with the lighter, more comedic version of the series. That pilot was only recently discoverd and was never aired.
|1 week 2 days ago||Wrong robot||
That's Robby the Robot from Forbidden Planet. The real robot from Lost in Space is below

I think that question got answered once and for all today. He got fired.
