So, if LSU had gotten the snap off in time, he would still be coaching there? Seems like they were just waiting for an excuse...
|2 days 50 min ago||I went there twice with the MMB||
Being part of the Band I got to travel to numerous away games- ND, Purdue, OSU (x2), bowl games, etc., some of them pretty hostile places. The only place I was ever physically attacked (stuff thrown, someone trying to push thru) was at MSU. Fuck them.
Nice thing was we won both times we went- winning sure makes the trip worthwhile....!

back with a vengence... getting kicked in the head with your own bootheel? Just precious....
Oh, and a special spew-out to that Johnson Motors reference. Great write-up, as usual!

"Coach, if you need one yard, I'll get you three yards. If you need five yards, I'll get you three yards!"
The 1989 Rose Bowl remains my all-time favorite game that I ever personally attended, and that includes games such as Wangler-to-Carter and the 1998 Rose Bowl (but that was a close second!).

This has been a very pleasant day.
|5 days 12 hours ago||FWIW||
I have run 8 marathons; to me biking a century (100 miles) feels like the same effort and same level of exhaustion as running a half-marathon. I once rode from Durango to Telluride, CO- 130 miles with over 8000 feet of climibing, and riding at altitude no less (over Lizard Head Pass, at 10,000+ feet), that felt like a marathon.
A big factor is how much hill-climbing is involved. 50 miles on the flats is relatively easy, two miles up a 7% grade and you will definitely feel it (and the calorie burn will be impressive).
Time spent is an issue, but I am normally an early riser and by the time I am rolling into the garage after a ride my wife is just waking up, so it works out.

He had just been assimilated, where 7/9 had been assmilated 20 years prior- a lot more time for implants to become more integrated and such. I coulda been a screenwriter...!
|5 days 14 hours ago||Three times a week||
Weekends and one day during the week. 50 miles on a bike is like running 5-6 miles, you can build up to doing it regularly without tearing yourself up. Other days I do other things, crosstraining, ya know?
re: sidewalks- that's for pedestrians, and in many municipalties it is illegal. Bicycles are a form of vehicular traffic (I average around 20 mph), and really should be on the road and therefore should always obey the rules of the road. It is actually more dangerous to ride on sidewalks. Note to motorists: because we have to obey the rules of the road, it is safer if you do also- i.e. don't stop at a green light to let us go by, etc., we need to have you be predictable also.
|5 days 23 hours ago||As a cyclist||
I always observe the rules of the road. ALWAYS. I have no sympathy for assholes, whether they are riding or behind the wheel of a car.
I wear a helmet, and bright hi-visiblity kit (that Yellow/Green Fluoro color).
I ride very early in the morning, out on the road by 5:30-6:00 AM and finishing 50+ miles before 9 AM. Keeping to rural or side roads, avoiding major traffic thoroughfares if at all possible.
I ride in the bike lane, or stay over to the right side of the road. The only time I take a lane is when I have no other choice, or if I am going downhill at similar speeds. I respect cars, and assume they can't see me, ALWAYS.
Mantistoboggan, don't be a jerk.

...he will need to play out his eligibilty to be draftable (nudge-nudge, wink-wink!).
Note: Jabrill autocorrects to "Gabriel," FYI.

I kinda miss the Pro Wrestling references. I also greatly admire your ability to pause the DVR when the game is otherwise in progress for you. My time and attention span are so limited that I watch every* game on DVR delay- it helps that I am three time zones away and can avoid spoilers- but once I start watching I have to see it through. I usually begin watching 90 min after the start time, that pretty much gets you to the end of the game in real-time, even if you FF thru opponent's 87 yard runs and subsequent extra points...
Great write-up, as always!
*exception: The Game- I am usually way out of town that week and catch it at a sports bar.
|1 week 4 days ago||It's like 5:30 AM here out west||
and there's already 85 comments? Right now I am hydrating for a bike (as in bicycle) ride, will do 50 miles before 9 AM...

|2 weeks 1 day ago||I am lucky to go to one game a year||
living way out of state and such, and unfortunately that was my game for 1994. Agreed, absolutely worst I have ever felt after a game....
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I was asleep||
because I was on Pacific Time; first indication there was anything wrong was when I had trouble signing on to AOL. Then I got a call from a co-worker to turn on the TV, and by that time both towers were down. I knew nearly a dozen people who worked in the WTC, every single one of them were unharmed. Side note: Native NYer, this hit me pretty hard. I remember going up to the roof as a kid and seeing:

correspond to the eventual BCS rankings, we want OSU to go undefeated so that beating them (and then the B1G West champion) would get us into the playoffs, if we otherwise take care of business.
