|2 weeks 2 days ago||bring on the 'sprouts||
we can chew 'em up and spit them out all day long!
|2 weeks 3 days ago||must not post||
/s will not go well here.
since congress is already badly investigating several 'issues' , what the hell is one more that they can screw up....
|8 weeks 4 days ago||i believe that they||
were drinking buddies. most of the firings involved a too much ETOH. the hires involved sobering up.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||yes you are correct||
it is in OKC nearly in Edmond, OK.
distance wise, think of Norman as AA and the OKC Softball park about the same distance as to Comerica in Detroit about 35 miles different. (yes, i use to drive from Norman to Edmond back in the day.)
|10 weeks 20 hours ago||i patterned my game after Billy Smith||
ron hextall was the greatest practisioners of that style of goaltending. the main guiding pronciple: if its blue and you're on it -- well, i'm a lumberjack, and i just don't care...you are just a treee in need of clear cutting.....
|10 weeks 2 days ago||if the rumors i heard at yost back in the day are true||
befor brandon, he probably was a lock to replace red. since brandon, it was mentioned that HC experience was required preferably at a top school not considered a destination job like HC at BC. Mel may have been looking for a HC position when the tech job openned up. ibelieve though he was looking for a better position to show off how well he could coach so that he could be the heavy favorite to replace red. tch, well, hasn't been thn hockey school for a long time....
|13 weeks 3 days ago||if memory serves||
the pesident was "Dollar" Bill Binowski (sp?). yeah, that a$$hole was president when i was there in the early 80's. did nothing for OU; it was all about him. he left OU to run for senate in Texass, lost in the primary, and they allowed him to come back. He was later fired.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||OU is solid in many areas||
Engineering (Chem, Petroleum), Medicine and hard sciences (Chem, phys, math).
the biggest problem for OU is that it's in Oklahoma, which holds it back. their ChemE department was put on the map in the late 50's and 60's by graduates of Meechigan. one of my dad's ChemE profs at Umich went to kick start the program in the mid 50's.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||the cap was rediculus||
if memory serves, the cap was 50 tix. were they that afraid that no one would buy tix for this event? they're nuts, even a guy like me understands the chances of ever seeing a game like this again in the area, and i bought 2 tix. Real Madrid and Man U, yeah, I'm seeing that, and I am not a soccer fan.
... in the 150USD zone and ended up in section 4 row 46 -- OUCH.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||...and that is the scary part||
those guys scare me.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||all this means||
is that he will be allowed to fully participate in the Andrew Dakich celbrations with limited contact.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||CJ will never die||
unlike the 5 hookers
|16 weeks 4 days ago||it was the 97 frozen four||
i was there. drove from ohio to the game that morning and drove back after the game. one long day for a crappy ending.
thanks for reminding me. at least i still have Cinci 96 frozen four.
|18 weeks 16 hours ago||sure||
near the end of the FYS game, Ebbing threw an elbow at the chin of one of the michigan players at full speed (the may be why he got hit with charging and not elbowing). while the player was down (maybe Di Guissepi), chelios went correy trop on him. crosschecked and slashed him while he was down. IMHO, both should be watching tomorrows game from the stands w/a league sponsered day off, but it wont happen.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||aren't they just indicating||
that he is #1?
|18 weeks 2 days ago||ace||
isn't the reaction of the orange crush section to signify that they too have learned that Nik Staukus is Number 1?
Thanks and RIP to Dandy Don Merideth for that one.
|21 weeks 2 days ago||I would recommend||
Mr fantastic of fantastic four fame. More flexible and and athletic that plastic man.
|22 weeks 6 days ago||any update on Kevin Lohan?||
i felt much more confortable when he was healthy and back on the blue line.
|23 weeks 5 hours ago||Go figure||
The university of Oklahoma. Go sooners.
|26 weeks 5 days ago||that was the worst||
there were a couple of very cold games during the 70's that were rough, but nothing compares to purdue '95. even that northwestern game in'08 doen't come close.
|26 weeks 5 days ago||on second thought||
the 69 OSU game came close with the temps and precipitation. thankfully the wind was relatively calm.
|26 weeks 6 days ago||you get 80% of your PSD||
as a deduction to your gross income. the final adjusted gross income , with the deduction included, is used to calculate yur michigan taxees. so its in there.
|26 weeks 6 days ago||i didn't buy toilet paper yesterday||
the three rolls in reserve should get me through this little bit o' snow...
why buy more? i never understood this buy of TP either.
|26 weeks 6 days ago||snowblower just came out of the shop and works||
I'm ready for anything it can dish out.
Ps. thre will be NO snowblower action today between 12:00 to 14:00,
|27 weeks 21 hours ago||the cinci -- san diego game||
was cold. i thought it was the coldest game up to that point; even colder than the cha,pionship game in green bay back in the '60s.
i agree, that umich -- pudue game just sucked. i left the car and it was snowing. when i was crossing the golf course to the game, it started to sleet.; the rain started when i got to the gate. the wind was from the WNW at a blustery 25mph with gust up to 50mph. the field was still grass/mud at that time, and i remember mercury hayes boy surfing in the puddle along the sidelines near the northeast corner of the stadium.
-- and there is no way that there were even close to 100k there that day; maybe 60k.
|27 weeks 3 days ago||No he wasn't||
Billy Sims was the compensation for hiring good ole Daryl. And of course billy blew out his knee after a few great years thus sending the lions back to the drawing board.
|27 weeks 4 days ago||i tend to agree||
this is how this was done in the past. Unless Mallory gets the HC position that he is looking for and of course if Coach Jackson hangs them up and either takes a job within the Ath Dept or heads out to some retirement location; I still believe there will be no changes.
|29 weeks 6 hours ago||Thanks EM||
That is how I recall the two events.
Also thanks for remembering Excalibur; it was sold shortly after I started working in Southfield. Then the name was changed to Pi, a pizza place, go figure. They sold it to someone else, and now god only knows who owns it now.
|29 weeks 6 hours ago||If we would have gone to a Dallas/Fort Worth game,||
I was going regardless I have friends in the area that I haven't seen in a long time. This would have made the trip justifiable.
|29 weeks 1 day ago||There is a reason that the||
Red river shoot out is held in Dallas every year. There don't want to step into Oklahoma. Nobody wants Oklahoma. If Texass were to succeed they would stick us with Oklahoma.
There is a reason I'm from Oklahoma....
