|13 hours 49 min ago||If someone is DVRing a sports event||
and you deliberately ruin it, you are an unmitigated asshole, pure and simple. Being out in the Pacific Time Zone, I very frequently have to DVR events (UM games, World Cup, le Tour). If the outcome is going to suck, that's life and also what the FF button is for.
|2 days 13 hours ago||Yes, I meant 2nd Rose Bowl win||
|2 days 19 hours ago||1989 Rose Bowl||
It was an absolute catharsis, Bo and UM beating USC in Pasadena after coming from behind in the second half. It was his second bowl win, and it felt a bit more real than his first win against Washington coming from a depleted Pac-10 a few years before. We had parked next to a couple of young guys in a pickup who had driven all the way from MI, and they were all excited and confident we were going to win. Us older alumni gave them the NSFMF and told them not to get their hopes up. They waited for us until we came back to our cars well after the game, to give us the best and greatest "I told you so!" in my entire life.
The 1998 Rose Bowl was a close second...

Normally things really slow down around here in the southwest, the snowbirds have gone back to Canadia and the Land of 10,000 mosquitos, the dry heat yields to "monsoon" season, and things get generally quiet. Great time to relax a bit and schedule time off, etc. BUT NOOOOOO!!!!! This year it hasn't let up, I am booked out a couple of weeks, it has been absolutely crazy. I am in danger of violating my life philosphy "You can always make more money, but you can't make more time!" Gonna hit the couch this weekend....

has come out with a new line of bikes, the Emonda; the top of the line version weighs in at all of 10.25 lbs! I wonder if we will see them- UCI still has minimum weight limits, right?

do to the fact that we were continuing the joke. Which you started, btw..."on purpose!?"
Careful, the above contains another grammatical fo pa.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||You couldn't care less,||
but then again I can tell you did that purposefully.

I love the symmetry!
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Hooray!||

Another beach day in the offing. More drinks. I really needed this!
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I DVR games||
and watch them later that day so I can FF thru commercials, half-time, official reviews, etc.; I also FF thru opponents long TDs and PATs.

Cali Wolverine once.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||You may be speaking about||
Chicago's many bicycle messengers, who do ride in a rather cavalier manner with regard to rules of the road. Most sport/enthusiast cyclists will obey traffic laws, as a matter of safety.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Big fan of Voler gear||
But I tend to wear high-visibility highlighter yellow/green jerseys when out on the road. But then again that color seems to pass for "maize" these days.

Washington invented it, we perfected it; just like the MMB invented the script Ohio, though they "perfected" it (as far as anything associated with Ohio can be perfected...).

|4 weeks 22 hours ago||Question||
Is the field at Michigan Stadium big enough for a regulation soccer match? Not that we are going to replace football with fútbol any time soon, but if the WC comes to the USA any time in the future...

Sews socks that smell!
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Full moon, Friday the 13th||
And a milestone birthday for my wife. Posbang indeed!
Personally, I get more concerned with Monday the 19ths, but that's just me....

don't overload yourself the first term, college is an adjustment. Especially if you were one of those top students in HS and things came easily for you, it will now be a pretty big step up. Not much different than the adjustments athletes have to make between HS and college, then between college and pro- be prepared to work a lot harder.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||How about the single wing||
if we want to get all nostalgic? hey, it worked great in the 40's!
|5 weeks 5 days ago||I don't know much about soccer||
And pretty much only follow it during the World Cup, but I greatly enjoy the coverage and commentary here because I invariably risk learning something. To play football in The US you basically have to be a behemoth, to play basketball you have to be generally significantly above-average height. In soccer you just have to be a great athlete- Diego Maradona was what, 5'4"?

I paid $300 for a Lifetime Membership. I have to say, that worked out very well....still have the gold-plated card.
