|1 day 6 hours ago||But I do that too!||
Okay, I'm hopeless.
|1 day 9 hours ago||Depends on where you are||
Manhattan yesterday was pretty clear after a few inches Monday night, but the Eastern part of Long Island got substantial snow-dump. Fortunately the city being closed down meant that streets could be plowed in the areas where the snow stopped early. It's clear for the second day here, so I assume at least LGA's open for business. Can't speak for CT.
|1 day 11 hours ago||James Earl Jones must have been lampooned||
or at least that character with the long cape. And Derek Jeter has been on (and was quite good), and has probably been lampooned in skits. (He didn't graduate, but he considers himself a Wolverine.)
And UofM grad Andy Kurtzman was another UofM SNL writer (from the semi-old days).
[And I have to stop starting sentences with "and" (and using so many parenthetical phrases).]
|1 day 13 hours ago||am I the only one that thought this was Re: Sam Webb?||
No. But then I went to the RC, and any other use of SAM would have been Greek to me.
On the other hand, I thought it was Sam Webb discussing deflate-gate. Guess I'm behind on my scandals.
|2 days 9 hours ago||It's a major story||
Tom Brady was actually allowed to comment on something other than deflation.
|3 days 9 hours ago||Detroit up to 50%||
As is the snow on my NYC window ledge...
But gotta support the blooming of Motown.
|3 days 15 hours ago||Very true, but makes life fun in the city||
I made a new friend last year while waiting for the bus when the light dusting began for a predicted blizzard and all the offices shut down early. An Australian, she was new to NYC, but she too thought the escape panic was a bit silly. Turns out she'd lived in Chicago for 20 years, and I being from Michigan...
Wonder if my physical therapist will show up for my appt. this morning? I need it so my ankles hold up for the skis/snowshoes I'll need to get home...

|4 days 1 hour ago||Hi, TJ!||
Was hoping you'd drop by.
|4 days 11 hours ago||And you can't blame the S&C dept.||
for players looking confused on the field, looking slow because they're not sure what they're supposed to do or where they're supposed to go.
|5 days 1 hour ago||The BTN guys (yes, Wisconsin fans) said||
that none of the kids playing in that game tonight was alive the last time Michigan swept Wisconsin. Can that be true?
|5 days 2 hours ago||"i don't want to come off as being a jerk"||
Well, we don't always get what we want.
|5 days 11 hours ago||And home visits with mothers who have||
And home visits with mothers who have fed and raised D1 O-linemen.
|5 days 11 hours ago||Tearing up the ice||
Or at least thinking about it...
|5 days 12 hours ago||And to think it took him 2-3 years||
to re-learn how to talk like that, and months to re-learn how to talk at all.
|1 week 2 days ago||Dakich was supposed to redshirt||
But they burned it tonight.
|1 week 3 days ago||I like the idea he looks so comfortable in it.||
Wearing it indoors, knowing he can't look so swag in one of those hot-weather T-shirt-round-the-year schools.
|1 week 3 days ago||Financial Engineering?||
Is that like stock manipulation?
|1 week 3 days ago||Hmm... Could make it easier to grip.||
Anybody measured Blount's hands?
|1 week 4 days ago||How do we know this is a reliable source?||
But just in case, congrats. (Unfortunately, I think my avatar's out of stock.)
|1 week 4 days ago||Who's that hiding under the OSU helmet||
and behind the poster?
|1 week 4 days ago||They're maize khakis||
EDIT: Oh, you meant Harbaugh's.
|1 week 4 days ago||Spike was out with a respiratory infection||
and they let him sit with the team on the bench, putting him in a nice suit without a mask? Then to hear Doyle was taken out because of a respiratory infection, and now someone else? Doesn't the training staff have an infectious disease specialist?
Ah, well. Maybe they all got it at the same time. Get better, guys.
|1 week 4 days ago||They just hired a new DC||
who's also coaching the secondary. See post and link above.
|1 week 4 days ago||Silent commit:||
Eventually the truth comes out.
|1 week 4 days ago||Manning's new DC is a former DB coach||
Washington State just hired a new defensive coordinator, Alex Grinch, who will also be coaching the secondary. He's been coaching DBs at Missouri, Wyoming and elsewhere, apparently with success. If Manning's going to learn more about other positions while coaching his own, this seems like a terrific opportunity.
|1 week 4 days ago||I'm pretty sure the coaches gave him great recommendations||
Or at least I assume so. Didn't have to wait long for a job.
|1 week 4 days ago||Jerry Montgomery||
Wasn't Jerry Montgomery a lineman himself in his playing days? It seems it would always be easier to coach the position you played. (Or for a DB to coach WRs, or WRs or QBs to coach DBs, because they have to learn while playing how to beat and confuse their opposites.)
Manning was a linebacker. I always got the feeling that Manning was being groomed for being a head coach, perhaps even on the high school level to start, by given opportunities to learn different positions on the job. But wasn't Mallory the DB coach? Were we that successful the year before with DB development? Perhaps Mallory wasn't the best mentor for a young coach to learn and teach that position.
As much as I'd love to see him develop here, I agree with you. This move is great for Manning. More experience teaching his own position and learning from others.

Must be the headset.

Considering his preference changed so suddenly....
