I've used StubHub only a few times, and I always wondered about how a scenario like this actually played out. Thx for sharing.

The dramatic ending of this game prompted me to jump up with arms extended in unadultered joy, only to have my hand get mauled by a low ceiling fan the was lazily spinning in the living room. No harm was done, but Dreisbach to Hayes memories always make my right hand ache a bit.

Ernie Harwell used to recite "Song of the Turtle" to inaugurate each Tigers season. Brian's "The Story 20XX" is our version. The season officially begins. Now.

There's still a genuine core to this team, especially offensively. Big questions:
Is the Nick Castellanos of the past few weeks the real Nick Castellanos. If so, that's a huge burden lifted. He's been tearing the ball to all fields recently.
Is Gose the answer in CF? If he can hit .275, that's sufficient combined with his glove and speed. But I just haven't seen enough consistency to believe this is possible.
Do they have a realistic shot of resigning Cespedes? This is a longshot, I believe. But he was a pleasure to watch this year. I would love to see him in LF again.
Pitching is a complete crapshoot. JV, Sanchez, and Norris could be a decent top 3, but this is not like the golden days of 4 solid starters - 5 if Porcello was in a groove. Another proven arm would be a bonus off-season signing, but they're not cheap. It would be great if Norris and another young arm could step up.

I'm going to name my first batch of homebrew "Peaty Poo". You'll get royalties for generating this idea. I promise, mate. G'day.
|1 week 2 days ago||QB's?||
Mallett was 5* future NFL pick. Sure, he was a headcase. But he would've been a sure-fire 2-3 year starter if not for the Rich Rod transition. I'll take a QB string of Brady, Henson, (Gutierrez), Navarre, Henne, Mallett any day (not counting Dreisbach and Griese since Lloyd "inherited" them as HC).

Once we work the kinks out of Marsupial Monday in 2015, this thing should really take off in 2016. Mates.

That dude's a human vaccum around the rim. He also seems to move real well. It will be exciting to see a true rim protector in the lineup.

Sorry, couldn't resist.
Also, these unis are a joke.

It would be criminal to see any Original Six uni plastered with ads. Absolutely criminal. The thought of a garish orange "Hot and Ready" emblazoned on the Wings jersey makes me ill.
EDIT: I guess my intense, dripping sarcasm was not properly digested by all in my post above.

Did a grad school stint at NC St., too. I rarely attended athletic events, except for free hoops tickets to see NC St play UNC in Chapel Hill. My passions were not stirred enough to justify it. Televised Michigan games were always the priority, and were fun to watch with the local UM alum crowd! Raleigh and the RTP region were generally nice, especially the extended spring and fall seasons.

Upvoted OP for divulging pertinent football information.
Assuming Wheatley sticks at TE, it looks like our roster is now stacked deep with TE's. Poggi has TE roots, and if 'Bama recruited him as a TE, he must possess the requisite skills. Harbaugh roster juggling has commenced (and remember that all roster juggling is good).
