This is awesome on so many levels. I had no idea about the legend of JMFJ's dad dancing @ Yost. The crowd must let him have the spotlight again when he returns.

Doyle Alexander was the key cog that gave us a chance at the playoffs in 1987. And remember that is was more difficult to make the playoffs in 1987 than in 2014. Th
Smoltz is one of very few examples - in recent Tigers history, at least - where a future HOF player was traded for a short term rental. Albeit, a very valuable short term rental.

OK, so I just advertised for the Keweenaw Peninsula. It's one of my favorite places to get away from it all. But I'll second the Caribbean vacation notion, specifically St. John. Gorgeous, rugged terrain, great hiking, few crowds on many beaches (I avoided the most popular ones and had amazing beaches all to myself). My tropical paradise. And no passport needed.

Kind of amazed we parted with Thompson. Both names are higher-level prospects. But it's win now, baby. DD never stands pat.

Keweenaw Peninsula. Fall. Magnificent.

Preparing for jet lag. Long flight tomorrow. I used to have my work travel plans organized weeks in advance, but I'll board the plane tomorrow not knowing how the hell I'll get to my hotel upon arrival. A nice POSBANG will help my mood as I prepare for stuffing my 98th percentile height body into a Delta economy class seat.

I just had one with dinner. In Wisconsin. I also approve this message.

Since I'm traveling to Amsterdam next weekend, I would really like NED to win this one. I can't imagine the excitement of watching the final match with the locals. If it happens, I'll have to find the proper shade of orange to wear (Syracuse? Clemson? Illinois?)

He would look good in a 2014-15 Michigan hoops uniform. Sigh.

I'll have an icy cold Molson Golden tonight to honor the Great White North.

Great TE pickup. Welcome, Mr. Clark.

The top 80's hitters were Tony Gwynn and Wade Boggs. I hated Wade Boggs. I loved Tony Gwynn. He had the smoother swing and seemed like a nicer guy. RIP to the sweetest swing around.

I'll show you my full moon if you posbang me.

Srsly? Nick Swisher as a representative professional baseball player at the top of his game? C'mon, now.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Moeller||
Mo seems to be a popular choice. I won't argue, especially for the price. He had giant balls as a coach, and was the perfect segue between the Bo and post-Bo era.

My duties here are done.

JB was also in on Pangos. Eye for talent, indeed.

It might be a Band of Brothers weekend for me. I've read the book 3 times, watched the series 4 times, and still get choked up every time. Amazing soldiers did amazing things to protect our freedom. Thanks.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Thanks, SC||
Thanks, SC. I'll be in northern Wisconsin tonight (traffic permitting). I'll either sing your praises at 2 a.m., or will be sticking needles into my Space Coyote voodoo doll hoping to cause you major discomfort if this is a bust.
Seriously, though, there's nothing quite like staring up at the night sky. I need to do this more often. I appreciate the heads-up.

1992. You used to wear Zubaz like every day. I hated those things. You know who you are.

|9 weeks 5 days ago||Fail||
I call this a fail. It's not like Kyle Field was a hollow, soulless place before JM arrived. It's been a den of screaming Aggie lunatics for decades ('12th man' and all). Sure, the A&M stadium reno financing was helped by JM's on-field performance. But Kyle Field has been around since the early 1900's! Just name the new press box or a top-notch luxury suite after him and move on. Kyle Field is larger than Johnny Manziel. Much larger.

I'm sick, but I'm a trooper. I just banged everyone and am willing to be banged. Just cover your mouth.

Maize Rage flaunting a Ukrainian flag? Yeah, I like that thought.
