that is unbelievable, go blue!

If you are not wave savvy, be extremely cautious about getting in the water with medium to large waves at all. With kids always keep them between you and the beach and be constantly aware of the size of the waves and if/how they are changing.
It is correct not to fight the riptide by swimming against it directly toward shore, however they can sometimes be flowing diagonally to the beach, so if you are swimming parallel to the beach and not getting out of the current, swim parallel in the other direction.
Lastly, a rip current can carry you out past the point at which the waves are breaking and if you are not a strong confident swimmer that knows surf and has no problem with being able to swim back in through the impact zone, even getting out of the rip current can leave you in a dangerous predicament. If caught outside a break you can't comfortably swim through, try to float outside the break and wave for help rather than swim into waves you can't handle. Bottom line, if you are not completely comfortable in the waves, you should not be in the water.

wish I could actually watch some games
|4 weeks 4 days ago||uhm....||
HE ruined their program ;)
|4 weeks 4 days ago||see here||
it has ESPN channel, not sure if it has the game
|4 weeks 4 days ago||there is an xm radio mobile application also||
not sure exactly what the subscription model is these days, but it works pretty well.....I know, I built it....or managed the building of it anyway ;)
They used to have a free trial to start off, not sure if that is still the case.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||depends on what they have an easier time with..||
firm netting is easier on the throw as the ball rolls out of/off the basket more easily, but it is harder to cradle without the soft netting.

should be [FIRST IN FOR FAUX QB CONTROVERSY 2016]
|4 weeks 6 days ago||so......||
with Borges, everyone thought Shane Morris was in a position to push Devin for starting time, simply because he was deemed a better fit for Al's intended scheme, but it seems apparent that Nuss will sing back toward a dual threat QB, so that sort of puts pressure on Morris before he ever even starts, right? After Devin leaves, won't a high-level, dual threat incoming freshman already be a potentially better fit for Nuss' scheme?

Seth MacFarlane is the Executive Producer?
I thought it was allright, started slow but was much more interesting by the end.
Recorded it for my 8 year old and i think he will enjoy it a lot.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||go blue!||
good win for lax, but perhaps closer than it needed to be?
|5 weeks 3 days ago||my son got, not my done for||
damn auto complete
|5 weeks 3 days ago||brine recruit||
my done for one of these when he started...slightly wider basket for easier catching/scoop, spend time breaking in the netting after you get it to form a nice pocket for catching/cradling.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||intangibles...||
manifested as tangibles.
He will be missed next year far beyond his on court production.
Thanks Mr. Morgan.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||mispronunciation just as bad||
My son's name is Xavier and people mispronounce it all the time as 'ex-avier', rather than 'Zavier'...mildly annoying, but doesn't really bother me except when people actually try correct me or him, in which case I politely indciate that it is like xylophone or Xerxes or xenophobia or xerox or pretty much all words that start with X.
'Scuse me, but I think I know how to pronounce my son's name correctly.

tourney meme born?
|6 weeks 7 hours ago||sad that he had to pay such a price for bringing this out||
Until i walk a mile in his shoes, not going to judge him for his immediate response in the locker room, but I would hope I would do more in the same situation.
He did show a lot of courage in bringing this to light and making something happen to stop the abuse. Exposing this in Happy Valley must have been a truly daunting prospect.
Shouldn't he be protected under some sort of whistle-blower law, whereby he should at least have his salary even if he is on some kind of employment waiver from PSU?
Seems weird that no college will touch him or hire him.....I would think that someone who will stand up and stop that kind of thing would be a good hire....just MHO.
|6 weeks 7 hours ago||going to agree with you on that||
sure he hates artificial turf b/c it no longer kicks up the cloud of dust in the '3 yards and a ' offensive scheme
|6 weeks 7 hours ago||wellllll....||
'I don't think you'll find many WVU fans that think....'
you can stop right there....'nuff said
|6 weeks 8 hours ago||man are you tired||
I thought the video was awesome and I have no problem with RR calling out a BS proposal for a rule change that would ostensibly seek to hinder his offensive scheme...seems like a smart move to me.
As for RR, I would gladly have him back in exchange for all the old-school, manball type fans represented in the video by the 80's phone talking guy who wants to turn back the clock.
If he was a bad fit for Michigan, it is only b/c a large segment of the fanbase still lives in the dark ages of football and pine for a time and place in the sport that is more or less disappearing. Yay for them getting what they want, jury is still out on how that is going to work out for us heartened somewhat by hiring an OC that can hopefully bring us back to post-1999 football on that side of the ball, fingers crossed.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Can you block?||
|7 weeks 5 days ago||second that..||
my son is 8 and just started playing with the SF Riptide and he is a HUGE M fan, so seeing them play lacrosse live would be very, very cool.
Do they post video or games anywhere at all?
|7 weeks 6 days ago||done||
and i LOVE having all the episodes posted at once to watch at my leisure and not have to wait......wish they could do it for True Detectives
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Yes, this...||
I watch and like both, but True Detectives to me is one for the ages.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||maybe...||
their boosters can start handing the players envelopes with _oney in them?
I kid, I kid.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||I don't expect perfection, but. ...||
I realize we are not going to run the table and be undefeated, so my expectations are in line with the reality of college basketball, but those guys seriously seem to be phoning it in.
yes..Iowa is on fire.... But I am consistently seeing M guys not back on defense and not really seeming to be moving at 100% on either end.
Here is hoping that Belin can adjust and scheme them back into it enough that they can pick up some momentum.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||To be fair on one item being complained about...||
..not flushing toilet paper is pretty much standard in large portions of the world.
Anyone who has traveled to even minimally remote parts of the globe know that TP goes in the bin, even luxury resorts when they are far enough out there. The water system is just not set up to deal with it.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||thanks for the write-up, will be following||
I know they need to play the season first to better understand improvement, but since we are now varsity and can somewhat recruit nationally, what is the longer term outlook?
Short version, hohw long until we beat OSU? ;)
Aside: just bought my 8 year old all his pads and gear for his first practice on his first team ever, he has been wearing them around the house for 4 days and always wants to go out and throw. Will play for the San Francisco Riptide U9 this year....can't wait.

'League of Gentlemen' - this is a British comedy series that you really have to be a little sick and twisted to really appreciate. If you don't like extremely dark humor, this is not for you...
I lived in London when it originally aired and bought the UK DVDs and kept an old DVD player that was 'cracked' to be able to play DVDs from any region around for several years...just to be able to play them. Was delighted when it showed up on Netflix.
Better write-up here than i can give it http://voices.yahoo.com/the-league-gentlemen-monty-python-meets-alfred-1609895.html
It was a stage show for several years first, so the characters and stories were refined over a long period before going onto TV and for it requires repeated viewing to catch all the humor as some is quite subtle and there is just a lot of complexity to the characters and plots
If you don't get why a butcher shop called 'H. Briss & Sons' is funny, maybe take a pass on this.
(not to be confused with movie 'League of Extraordinary Gentlemen')
|17 weeks 3 days ago||not in a competitive real estate market||
often a landlord will provide some level of tenant improvements to get tenenats and that fluctuates from nothing per square foot to a lot, depending on how badly a tenant is needed and how much rent they are willing to pay, etc. etc.
A retail space/location in Ann Arbor I will assume does not have much trouble finding tenanats (I live in Cali now, so I'm not sure how much vacant space there is in A2 these days) and geting a decent rent for it, so they aren't likely to be dropping a ton of $ for T.I.s for anyone beyond paing and flooring or something like that. If Blimpy's needs to outfir it as a restaurant there is a bunch of equipment and perhaps some mods required to the actual space, so I would assume the money would go toward that.
If you have no attachment to the place, i can see why you would find the idea of funding it odd, but I grew up going there with my parents who graduated from M and ate there when i attended and I brought my son there last year when we came back for the NW game, his first. I would like to see it continue in some form so I can continue to go ther when i come back, so I'll chip in. If you just see it as b ad service and greasy burgers, by all means don't. Not really sure how someone gets offended by that.
I used to go to other places on game days with my parents that were their hangouts in college (Preztel Bell, Cottage Inn, Drake's Sandwich Shop) and hang with their alumnae friends after games and hear them talk about the old days, cooler still to eat hang there when i was in school. They were heartbroken when it closed, as was I.
Cottage Inn and Blimpy's are all that was left and Cottage Inn isn't at all the same.
Not sure what i would do if Rick's closed...maybe try to buy that sticky/scummy section of carpet back by the pool table where i puked once?
