BMW 435i. Replacing a 535i 6-Speed. The 5's have become too large, ponderous and stodgy over the years.

through taking a back seat to the 5-star recruit
through the rebuilding of a program
through physical limitations
through stepping in and stepping up when called upon
through getting a freakin' Engineering Degree.
You will be forever and always one of my favorite UM basketball players, and Michigan Man. I sincerely hope that everything that happens in your life is absolutely the best.

Every car I have ever owned (going back 30 years) has had a stick- it always feels wierd to me (or my left foot, anyway) to drive an automatic. But in my next car, all of my excuses for driving a stick no longer hold true- the 8-speed(!) paddle-controlled automatic accellerates faster and gets better gas mileage than the manual.
Also wierd is test-driving a Tesla- no transmission! With the lack of engine noise, it feels like it accelerates extremely quickly, but in actual 0-60 times (for a reasonable version of the car) it was no quicker than my last car- 5.5 sec.

TODAY I am turning in my current lease, then tomorrow I am flying out to LA to pick up my new lease and drive it home (a pleasant 300-mile drive thru the desert, nice way to break in a new car). Thanks to the internet, you CAN get a good deal on a special order. If the dealer is too far away to drive, you can have them ship it to you for reasonable cost.

"SPARTANS" on their uniforms, which I can understand. But for me that is all the more reason why I prefer UM's unis to say "MICHIGAN"

will have a huge chip on their shoulder, wanting to beat their arch-rival B1G champ opponent at home, and they have been playing well the last few games. No let-downs! Go Blue!
|1 week 4 hours ago||Several times a game he is left alone at the top of the key||
with the ball, and I can't help thinking, "put it up, just this once!"
We couldn't possibly say enough about him- kept at it for 5 years (earning an engineering degree), stayed committed to the team both physically and emotionally, despite being surpassed by the 5* recruit, then proceeded to fulfill the higher expectations of the position (in concert with Horford) when McGary went out for the season. Way to Go Blue! I hope he has huge success in whatever he does after he graduates.
Now do one of these for Spike in a couple of years....

I had absolutely no idea who she was and had never heard of her until you mentioned her. I have never, ever liked country music until I clicked on that link. Wikipedia says she is from C-bus, but also says she has a sister named "Jessica Wabbit?"

is that any positivity at all in the Line statistics is from the first half of the season, before teams figured out to attack the middle.
