Also, are you in PDX, or elsewhere in Oregon?

Cherry Tree is absolutely amazing. Every song on there is brilliant, but it doesn't have Fake Empire or Slow Show, which is why I went with Boxer.

|1 week 5 days ago||Chasing the Scream||
I just finished Chasing the Scream - The First and Last Days of the War on Drugs. Really made me think hard about drug regulation in this country and the ways that the war on drugs has been detrimental to our global society. Author is Johann Hari.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Sparty||
I dated a Spartan the entire time I was in Ann Arbor. I wouldn't say I regret it, because getting all of her Spartan friends to admit that Ann Arbor is a cooler party town than East Lansing was, at the time, worth its weight in gold. But, as is usually the case in these scenarios, it didn't work out. Oh well, life is better when you don't have to worry about your significant other throwing it in your face every time Michigan loses a game.

The inference comes from the snarky, "if you just try you can achieve it, big guy" tone of your post. Listen, like WD or don't, whatever, that's not my concern here. My concern is in the seemingly smug, I am better than you because I have a thing and you don't, 5th grade bravado that appeared to be on display. If I overreached then my apologies. Your post just seemed to contain everything I hate and nothing that I love about my alma mater.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||You're the reason||
that Michigan alums are widely considered to be pompous ass-bags by the rest of the world. Have we graduated from - or are we still attending - a world class academic institution? Yes, absolutely. But that by no means makes it okay to crap all over someone who loves the university despite never attending. You should settle down before you hurt yourself and perhaps learn some humility. It will go a long way towards helping you when you get that high-powered, 6-7 figure job you seem to think you deserve simply for being alive.

Perhaps you should reread the article, because it is actually quite insightful. Goodell isn't responsible for player's actions, but he is responsible for both their continued employment and the reputation of his league. The fact that he suspended Ray Rice for 2 games for dragging his unconscious wife through a casino was bad enough. On top of this he either failed to see if there was an elevator video, failed to watch it despite knowing of its existence, or watched it and decided that 2 games was okay, one for each blow that he landed on a woman's head.

Got off of work early to watch the WC semi and had an Occidental Kolsch and a Gigantic Ginormous Imperial Ale.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||Sad Spurs Fan Here||
As a Tottenham Hotspur fan I can say this, that isn't even remotely close to Bale's best goal. It didn't show a whole lot of individual skill - which he has in spades - it was more a testament to strength and pace than anything. It was an important goal, but I don't really know that it was an insane goal.

should add that he is an IU alum. I don't care either way, but at some places it seems strange to see. Chapel Hill being one of them.

Indiana rushed the court after beating Wisky this season and I texted my buddy and asked him what he thought of the court rushing. His response was that it is IU and they should act like they've been there before. They should expect to beat everyone who comes into Assembly Hall. I think UNC falls into that same category.

That is probably the best, most truthful line on this blog in the last three years.
So much for mailing it in.

Saw them for free about this time a year ago. One of those bands that everyone should be glad that they're blowing up.
|1 year 40 weeks ago||Awesome analogy, brah||
If UM is Arsenal then UM would've had to have relocated from somewhere in Indiana and told everyone that they now owned the North. That and Wenger is a French Dantonio.
|1 year 42 weeks ago||PacNW brews||
Widmer is partially owned by Anheuser-Busch, I believe, thus eliminating them from contention. I would rank Bridgeport and Deschutes above them anyway. For my dollar I would go with Double Mountain and Walking Man before any of the NW heavyweights. But that's just one man's opinion.

Helm is under contract for 2 more years. Brunner is still affordable and they were looking for a D upgrade through trades. And honestly, good riddance if Samuelson is gone.

Holland has brought how many cups to Detroit? Bert and White have been solid signings. White was the 2nd best defenseman on this team before he got hurt, and they missed him dearly in the playoffs. Holland has been gearing this team towards a youth movement for a few years now. They have tons of young offensive talent down in the minors and abroad that will be hitting their stride in the next two years. The team he built last year made the playoffs despite giant gaps from injuries. And if you want to say that that was Babcock's doing, guess who hired Babcock? Trust me, I love the fact that we are so spoiled as a fanbase that when we don't win the cup in 5 years we are enraged with the best GM in hockey. While I agree that Cleary isn't worth $3 mil, that's just the rumored money. I wouldn't be surprised to see those two figures reversed with Brunner getting 3 and Cleary 2.5.
|1 year 46 weeks ago||Supposedly they are close||
Supposedly they are close with both Cleary (3mil) and Brunner (2.5mil). It's too bad that Filps is gone, but he never really seemed to harness his full potential in Detroit. I hope they pick up Weiss.
|1 year 46 weeks ago||Horton||
Horton wants 6 mil a year and rumor is that he wants to play in a warm climate. I honestly think Weiss is the best move for the Wings right now. If they can get him in at under 4mil per year. They have a ton of offensive talent that will be ready to come up after this next season so there's no point in blowing a bunch of money right now. I think the Wings will try and sit tight this year and hope for the young guys to carry them in 2014-15.

Kirk Cousins beat Michigan 3 times. Yes, he's a little "too" religious, and he will be a perennial backup in the NFL, but he beat Michigan 3 times. It is one thing to pick on someone who sucked, but he holds most of the meaningful records at one of our rivals and, I repeat, he beat Michigan 3 times. If he wants to be hyper religious, who cares? I think he has earned the respect of Michigan fans. It isn't like he beat nerds up in a dorm. I'm not an MSU fan, and think most of their fans are delusional, but picking on Kirk Cousins is pretty stupid.

Beilein will be in the discussion as long as we keep performing at this level, but with the talent on this roster he will get overlooked by coaches doing a lot with less. I think at this point (a long way to go, obviously) it looks like Altman or Shyatt's to lose.

|2 years 27 weeks ago||That the Winterhawks would||
That the Winterhawks would get caught cheating isn't surprising (they are ridiculously talented, and sometimes that is about more than just being a great organization) but at the same time they have a long lineage of putting players in the NHL (Mark Messier, Cam Neely, Marian Hossa, Brendan Morrow, Adam Deadmarsh, etc...) so it wouldn't be out of the blue for high quality talent to show up in Portland. As a transplanted Wolverine up here in PDX it would be a shame if the Winterhawks had been dubious in their recruiting tactics. But honestly, the $250,000 fine wouldn't really hurt the Winterhawks, and, as the article states, they trade most of their draft picks away anyways, so losing a few wouldn't really hurt them. The cupboards are already stacked for the next 2-3 years.
