"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."

I do like the Oregon & FSU versions and to some degree the LSU one.
"Undershits" was an unintentional typo, but it made me chuckle, so I thought I'd leave it as is.

|2 days 10 hours ago||There's no way you can rule out Michigan being a Top 25 team||
We're not talking NC contender, we're talking Top 25. 9-3, 8-4ish.
16-17 returning starters, including the entire offensive line, plus what should be a game-managing, turnover reducing upgrade at QB in Jake Rudock (or better if Shane beats him out), a team that's certainly well within the Top 25 in recruiting in the past four years, plus Harbaugh!

onto the ice from the upper deck in Olympia as a kid. Crazy steep and up-close. The upper deck sight lines were better than any of today's venues.
The Joe was built at the nadir of arena design in 1979 before The Palace of Auburn Hills ushered in a new era that improved seating greatly for luxury box owners and somewhat for upper deck attendees.
Olympia. What a view from the upper deck!
The Joe. No overhang. Get out your binoculars.
The Palace. An improvement over the Joe, at least

|2 days 21 hours ago||Ha! I attended a Lions-Browns game there w/ a Browns||
season ticket holder who described his tickets as "great seats" in all seriousness.
First row, upper deck view from behind the endzone that was a good distance away. Better than the alternatives, but "great"? I was bemused.
|2 days 21 hours ago||My speedometer read ~128 MPH on my Geo Prizm GSI||
on I-94 back in the day.
I had it floored for a few minutes.
Young and stupid, but it was thrilling on slight turns to see the lane markers whizzing by.
Beat that MPH / Horsepower ratio (from stories from your young and stupid days, not going out in the present and actually doing it).

|3 days 10 hours ago||Ah, Fidrych versus the Yankees on Monday Night Baseball in 76||
What a year he had in 76 before he hurt his knee in 77 (goofing around in the outfield), came back too soon, and hurt his arm.
He threw about 90, but he was always at knee-level with crazy slider-like movement on his ball.
|3 days 11 hours ago||Agreed, I'd never go back to Win 7 now that I'm on Win 8.1||
Boot times are cut by a third and it's much faster/efficient.
It did take some GoogleFu at the beginning to become proficient at avoiding the Tile Mode. This included reinstalling some apps like AdobeReader so that they open in multiple-windows capable Desktop Mode and not one-application-at-a-time Tile Mode.
IMO, it was a substantial improvement in technical performance under the hood. Unfortunately, MSFT basically scored an own-goal with their GUI presentation decisions.
I wonder if the Win 8 GUI had something to do with the end of the Ballmer era. ("You knucklehead! How did you let that GUI get out the door when it obscures a real improvement?")

|4 days 10 hours ago||Even though the PC crowd will say that||
that Pop Warner football may be (as) risky for long term CTE, I think that's just a bunch of hooey. Take that logic to the extreme and we're all at risk for putting our heads down too hard on the pillow.
It seems to me that the risk for all types of adult life-enjoyment-limiting injuries must increase with both the force of contact and for the duration of the football career. Plus, ligaments harden as we age up to ~23, so the flexability of a Pop Warner player will likely not be there to absorb the hits one would take in the NFL, college, or even high school.
Of course there's always some risk to anything, including playing at the Pop Warner level (or driving to and from games and practice). But I think concerns about pre-high school risks are overblown.

Methinks the children of football fans are much more likely to find their way onto a football team than say, the children of opera fans.
