Feels like Monday today, and I'm not sure this was the best thread to start a new work week.
|1 day 13 hours ago||Gone for Soldiers..||
Just finished Shaara's "Gone for Soldiers" about Winfield Scott's march to Mexico City, and the cast of military characters that were developed for a later, bigger stage in the American Civil War. I got hooked on Shaara (and his father) through a recommendation on this blog. I was leery before reading it...was worried these books would be superficial and trite. How wrong I was. I love this series of books. I anxiously await reading "To the Last Man" during the summer. It's the last Shaara book I have left to read, and I'm infinitely saddened by that prospect.

Watching a couple of my son's lax games, then driving up to Wisconsin northwoods to open up the cabin. Will probably crack a few icy beers while lounging on the dock. Maybe a little fishing.
Since it's Memorial Day weekend, I also look forward to devouring a Shaara historical novel (thanks to MGoBlog for getting me hooked on the Shaara books from a thread awhile back). I will also pay respect to those who sacrificed everything for our country.

Sad: I won't get to see him play in Madison, WI next year.
Glad: I'm a Wings fan.
It's an uncomfortable feeling. Ergo, I need a drink.

I'm the first UM alum/graduate in our family, but I always remember my Dad listening to Bob Ufer in the 70's and 80's. Saturday afternoons always meant UM football on the radio. The rare TV appearances were also cherished. I was hooked for life from an early age.
|1 week 3 days ago||Called up||
To me, the term "called up" implies that they were playing in the minor leagues before getting the call to join the big leagues. Which leads to the natural follow-on question: does the PIBL have a developmental league? Or does "called up" literally mean a phone call?

I picked this one up on a whim at the library recently. What a fascinating tale. I need to read Zigzag next.

Unbroken made my recent 12 hour flight go by much smoother. I devoured it. I'll download a recommended book from this thread for my flight back. It makes it easier to avoid work with a good read in hand. Avoiding work becomes even easier when economy class morphs me into T-Rex arms when trying to use my laptop.

Great get, JB + staff. This kid is a consensus blue chip player. Amazing. Looking forward to seeing you in 2016, Mr. Battle.

Babcock has done a helluva job. This may be premature lauding, but the way Tampa has chewed up Montreal illustrates the Babcock effect on a very young - and depleted - Wings roster. He hasn't won as many Cups as Bowman, but he's done a remarkable job in the salary cap era. Maybe Blashill is ready to step up to the big dance and lead this young Wings corps, but I will certainly miss the square-jawed Babcock behind the bench if the market is overly kind to him.

Outer Banks, NC. A week full of sun, sand, swimming, and drinking Yuengling.

I don't mind cleaning up enormous turds in the yard. It's the horrendous canine ass gas that really gets annoying.

My wife and I work full time. Our last rescue dog was super chill, so leaving him at home was fine. We adopted him at the 1 year stage. He was apparently an outdoor dog before, but we didn't have any issue with house training. We walked him religiously twice a day, and he thrived in our household.
We got our current dog at a very young age. The energetic puppy to adolesence stage was difficult, so we opted for a few days per week of doggy day care. It's expensive, but we grew to love it. We tapered off to only one day per week after our dog's 3rd birthday. He's matured into a great dog and he seems to handle loafing around the house all day very well. We walk him regularly and shower him with love - he reciprocates the love tenfold.
Dog ownership is a huge responsibility and can cause major logistical headaches, but we wouldn't trade our dog for anything in the world. Except Jim Harbaugh as UM Head Coach, but that's no longer an issue. No regrets.

He looks very strong with the ball. Also finishes well with either hand.
Might be a nice combo guard prospect. He has nice length at 6'4"-6'5" (multiple sites). I wonder if he's done growing.
