Carribbean. Start & end in San Juan, PR, hit St. Croix, St. Kitts, St. Thomas, Grenada, and Dominica. Cannot wait. Especially after hearing on the radio this morning that there's a chance of snow here in Cleveland on Tuesday.

I'm leaving for a cruise tomorrow...and I'm expected to get work done today.

I've lived in Michigan, Virginia, Ohio, Maryland, Georgia, and North Carolina...and it pegged me for Lincoln, Nebraska; Madison, Wisconsin; and Grand Rapids, MI. It's as confused as my geographical identity.

I'll have to check that out. Also did a quick search of the interwebs and found this:
Not sure where they get their data from, but it does look like a pretty steady drop since the mid-90's or so.

Just curious, but what are your sources for the crime rate stats?

I don't know what the case is at every military base, so maybe some of the service members on the board can speak to their experiences, but my brother is stationed at Fort Sill, OK, and nobody is allowed to have a weapon on base unless they're on a training exercise.

Oh man, I remember the banana phone with Marty and Joe. Why'd they stop calling it that? Also, who's the color guy these days?

That Randy Johnson/bird one still blows my mind every time I see that. I mean, that's literally got to be greater than a one a million thing, right?

Think there will be beer in the Big House for this game?

Those football flops are hilarious! I love how they both just launch themselves. And the hands in the air by the Bills guy is just perfect. Any idea if these drew penalties?

I love baseball! Opening Day should totally be a national holiday. That said, let's go Tigers. Eat em up!
...and may my fantasy team enjoy much success and happiness.

Yeah - it probably wasn't as blatant or forward as the Marcus Hall one (which the initial photo, by itself, makes it seem like) but he's definitely flipping the bird. It's not like that's a natural way to have your fingers where it might be misconstrued as him doing something else; he's definitely flipping someone the bird. Not that I really care that much, I'd like to see him play for UM anyway, but let's be honest about this.

Am beginning to hear insider buzz that he's headed to Stanford.

Think Beilein would start both Horrors and Morgan, and bench Walton, to better deal with the two bigs? Sounds like GRIII would be overmatched defensively against either one. Levert and Stauskas should be able to handle the guard duties.

Come on Mercer! I would LOVE it if the Dookies got knocked out in the first round.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Ouch, I was very optimistic||
Ouch, I was very optimistic for him this year, due to the way he pitched down the stretch last year.
As of now, our bullpen is looking like:
Jury's still out for me on Lobstein, Putkonen, and Reed. Krol could be decent, probably not the same level as Smyly last year. Coke is a question mark. Alvarez looked OK in a few starts last year, but he's largely unproven.
And who's going to replace Rondon? There's not really anybody else who has the same profile as him, as a hard throwing righty.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||This was exactly my thought.||
This was exactly my thought. I think Chait brings up fair points, and I think there's some merit to his thesis, but you have to consider the roles that Novak and Morgan have played. Novak was a critical part of his teams, and really was one of the cornerstones in the resurgence of Michigan basketball. In other words, he got a lot of attention because he was really the main guy for Michigan at his time - he was a vocal leader and was a bigger part of the Michigan teams.
Morgan, while certainly an integral part of the team, has been largely overshadowed by other players in his career. Novak, Burke, Hardaway, and now Stauskas, Robinson, Levert, and McGary. He's not a vocal leader, so he's not seen as public a representation of the team in the same way Novak was.
I don't say this to discount or disparage Morgan as a player - I am extremely grateful for the time and effort that he's put in to make Michigan what it is now - but I just don't think he has had the same level of importance as Novak had. So I agree that they are similar players and have many of the same qualities, but I think Novak's importance to his team, as well as his outspoken nature, made it easier for people to focus on him.

At risk of being labeled ignorant, this article references 22 scientific studies done that show possible connections between vaccines and autism. All of the research was done at major university research institutes, reputable hospitals, or published in scientific journals. From what I read, nothing was conclusive, but certainly calls into question the claims of those saying that "all the research being done has shown zero connection between vaccinations and autism."
A few quotes:
Not really advocating one side or the other, and vaccinations obviously play a role, but I think there's still a case for caution.

|5 weeks 2 days ago||I can't remember the medical term||
But there's a heart condition where a hole forms between the ventricles, so blood doesn't circulate well through the heart and pools on one side, causing the heart to swell. Eventually, the person dies of heart failure, especially if they're physically active. I remember reading an article about that a while ago, because a bunch of high school/college football players had died from it.

The veritable professor's comment above also rings a bit hollow - “see how well you do without it...” well, I've done quite well thankyouverymuch.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||I'm 26 and haven't had a flu||
I'm 26 and haven't had a flu shot in years - like probably 15 years or so. I've gotten along pretty well. And if I do get the flu, I'm sure I'll be able to handle it.
For the recond, my response isn't a full declaration that vaccines are unnecessary or anything like that, they've obviously proven helpful, but I think we have a tendency to over-vaccinate. We have immune systems for a reason, and someone like me (a young, healthy person) can more easily get away with not getting some vaccines (like flu). I will probably start getting that once I get older and my immune system starts to break down.

I don't mind it. What does Baylor's jersey say though? Looks like it starts out "Sic..." across the top. That doesn't make sense for the Baylor University Bears...in Waco, TX.
Maybe it says "Sic 'em Bears"?
|6 weeks 2 hours ago||I wouldn't say he's a big||
I wouldn't say he's a big basketball guy - he's a big sports guy in general (has a degree in Sports Management), so I'd say this is more than just a job for him. He seems to really like it, especially since he took about a 50% pay cut to take the job. From the way I understand it though, once you have an "in" in the sports world, there's tons of opportunity to grow and move around. Case in point: he's been with the organization for less than a year and already got promoted. Granted, he's worked his ass off, but the opportunities are there.
