That thread is gold, Jerry. Gold.

Chantel is one of the my favorite Reggie Cleveland All-Stars and a class act. The BTN would be wise to hire her.

I wouldn't expect her to take responsibility, but this seems even colder and more detached than I would have thought.
Assuming they deserve it, I hope they get hammered hard in court.

Excellent stuff. Wish I lived closer.

Yeah I think for sure it helps Ronaldo in the rivalry. As for whether that's catching up or pulling ahead... I don't know. It's an amazing rivalry. I'd take Messi to start my team, but it's not a no-brainer by any means.
|1 week 3 days ago||He's talking about the US||
He's talking about the US Men's National Team and their goal - off the foot of Landon Donovan - in the final minutes against Algeria in the 2010 World Cup.
And I'm right there with him. It was one of my best moments in sports as a fan. I literally went screaming into a couple of neighboring teachers' rooms, running, hollering, jumping. Our principal was having a meeting in one of the rooms. She understood.
The goal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b7eZmKWW9s4

Agree that this is going to be a very tough game for us, especially considering the circumstances.
I'm not sold on PSU being all that good this year, though. They have a schedule that sets up nicely for them, especially with that week off before they play us, but I think last year's 11-3 is really going to prove to be an anomaly for them.
Also I trust that with Franklin the bye week will be a negative rather than a positive. I mean, in 14 and 15, they had a bye week in front of us, and they lost both of those. To be fair, in 2016 they had the bye week in front of OSU and then managed to get extremely lucky to win that game.
My other question is how do they get such excellent placement of bye weeks?

There are pro gamers, twitch streamers, modders, etc. I am sure you know this, just saying, as a fellow fan, it's never too late.

Let's hope he's fully aware.

I also thought it looked bad. Looked like knees do when they end your season. But it still could just be an ankle. Looked like it was on the plant*; he planted his left foot and the defender was on his left side. Could have rolled up the ankle under there. Could also have buckled the knee. Sigh.
* just going on memory, and keep in mind I'm sitting here in a hotel room with a sick (but somehow still energetic and yelling) kid + sibling.

Harbaugh - I'm in a hotel room with two screaming kids - did he just say "no serious injuries" in the post-game interview? That would be great confirmation about McDoom et al.
|2 weeks 18 hours ago||Not good for McDoom. Hope||
Not good for McDoom. Hope that's an ankle and not a knee. Kind of looked like his left ankle got rolled up, couldn't tell.

3/3 for that family. Wow.

I mean, I have given up on the Lions.
But of course they could be good.
There's nothing that makes it impossible, even though they - the team as a whole, a franchise - are not good now. So you're reading something that's not there when you say "by that logic."
|2 weeks 23 hours ago||Please elaborate. I can think||
Please elaborate. I can think of several ways you could be figuring this to be the case.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I think we take "team" to||
I think we take "team" to mean different things. When I think of a team, I think of what you're calling the franchise. You seem to be using the word team to mean a particular season with a particular group of players. That's valid.
I mean, it's obvious that the Lions haven't been one of the worst teams in the NFL over the last few years. It's so obvious that I assumed that's not what was meant. Equally obvious that they have been without a doubt one of the NFL's worst teams in the last 60 years.

They have won one playoff game in 60 years.

I mean, by not talking about exactly what it is, he's leaving the door open for him to say later, "It was very serious, but we dealt with it in the appropriate manner, and now everyone is eligible again." And no one can argue that it was dealt with appropriately because we don't know what it was. If he did announce what it was, it would be a lot harder to sweep under the rug later - and we all know that's first choice.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Brutal miles||
This doesn't get enough attention: bowl games are always away games for us and de facto home games for half (or more) of our bowl opponents.
Those brutal, cross-continental miles contribute mightily to those brutal inches like bad officiating going againt us. Home-field advantage is real.
I hate how the national media doesn't talk about this. Frankly I think we should complain about it far, far more than we do. It would make a major difference. Can you imagine half of those Rose Bowls, Alamo Bowls (for those that care), etc. in Ann Arbor or Columbus or the Silverdome or Lambeau?
|3 weeks 5 days ago||I would go so far as to say||
I would go so far as to say it was obvious that the offense was the weaker of the two units last year. Everything from the scoreboard to the draft boards shows that.

As for the delivery day itself - just be there for her and do whatever she wants. Buying a gift is a good idea (honestly this made no sense to me but for a few bucks it makes her happy). Don't check your phone or ask if you can turn the TV on or anything like that. Induced labor can still take a while - for us it took six hours! - so be ready for a long haul.
As for being a dad over the long haul, it's all about the hustle and the effort. It's kind of like defense in basketball. If you're willing to play as a team and put in the effort and the hustle, you'll usually be ok, even if you're not the #1 natural athlete on the floor. Hustle and effort count a lot for kids (and anyone, I suppose). Just show them that they're the most important thing in your life.

Definitely a much tougher match-up than Louisville. Really the only way we were losing that Louisville game was bad luck/refs/injuries. Oregon is a different kettle of ducks. Donlon needs to get Wagner in a good spot, otherwise we could actually see some trouble, maybe some X in there to stop the dribble penetration.

Credit to NW for coming back. Major achievement after that first half, when they truly didn't look like they belonged on/in the same court/league/sport/planet as Gonzaga.

This team has been Walton's team for years, even when Caris was still here. It's always been a case of "they'll go exactly as far as Walton takes them." What a joy to see Walton playing like a tournament legend.

Ace's basketball analysis has come a long way. Good stuff. That clip shows how much DJ still has to do to improve his post D though - and also shows how good it can be eventually.
