Is still a bitch! Great news, never cared for his fanatical sanctimony during the Lewinsky- Clinton years.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Nobility..||
Brian, try fitting that phrase on a Tee shirt, I know I would buy more then one. Maybe with a caricature of Jopa on it.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Nobility vs darkness||
I usually only post during football season but Brian's line today was so spot on, I had to say so: "There s a nobility in not pretending to be noble, and a darkness in people who have to signal their virtue." Just great. Always believed that but never quite put it so eloquently and concisely.
Immediately, a certain men s basketball coach in North Carolina comes to mind. Who has some other names that fit the last part of Brian s quote. Sports only.:)

Sorry, WD, Hunwick not NHL caliber. Like some good college QB's, even some very good ones who won the Heisman, (Gino Torretta, John Huarte, Pat Sullivan, Terry Baker), college skill doesn't necessarily "translate".

Sorry to hear that, that person obviously cannot discern true leaders from those whose leadership comes from a carefully managed public relations process.

Is awesome in Monroe , Michigan. Not the larger pizza universe,

Manuel isn't trying to assert himself as the "Big Dog" vis a vis JMFH. Would be a HUGE mistake. He may not like it but he better coddle Harbaugh as necessary. Step off.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||I loved Tripp...||
A shame he tore his knee up on that crappy AstroTurf in Minnesota against the not so Golden Gophers. Would have had a nice pro career otherwise.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||"Chief"..||
A really old school thing. Brought back memories of my Dad who used Chief a lot in addressing barkeeps (another old school term), hacks (taxi cab drivers), servers (waiters and waitresses), etc. Never punched in the nose for it, at least that I aware of.

He still drives at night, big plus for older ladies.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Huh?||
82 and sunny, spent all afternoon at the pool. Relaxing on the lanai with a chocolate vodka (Van Gogh) on the rocks.
Before you freak out about any humble bragging, please know I would gladly switch ages with almost all of you fellow M bloggers. Yes, even, cold winters (and early springs), jobs, bosses, young children, etc.
Enjoy your life, time truly does fly.

He wants his youngest child to finish high school in Ann Arbor...
|13 weeks 4 days ago||Outstanding!||

Sazeracs. Ever have one? And Van Gogh Dutch Chocolate flavored vodka. Good stuff.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Derrick Rose||
Didn't Rose sit out a season a few years back even though he was technically cleared to play? Same scenario except was Rose guaranteed millions. Any Bulls fans out there.

46 here. Sound advice but really guys, how easy is it to do EVERYTHING your wife tells you to do? Answer: not very.

Agree, my eye test unfortunately tells me he s lost a step ((or 2) after the 2 knee surgeries. The old cliche may apply, " he s got a hiccup in his giddyap". Still a gutty kid who can contribute in spots. If healthy, he ll see PT next year.

He batted the ball with his hand. A hand punt. Looked like Garo Yepremian in the Super Bowl against the Redskins. Anybody here remember that? But the Dolphins won anyway.
|21 weeks 2 days ago||His, or her,...||
Family and friends (if any) must be so proud. Wonder if the van owner graduated from Ohio or even attended. In any event, a class act. All low.
|21 weeks 6 days ago||No offense Michael..||
And no regional bias here but journalists, even sports journalists, at the NYT and WSJ, I am sure do " better" in terms of salary (not that salary is the sole measure of success) then Freep staffers. Does Freep even publish a newsstand edition daily?! And career path is so much better at NYT or WSJ.
Again, my comment is not to put down Freep, but to put down Sharp.
Merry Christmas to you and yours.
|21 weeks 6 days ago||Easy answer||
A degree from Michigan and he makes a mediocre living writing for a mediocre at best newspaper? Blames Michigan for his disappointing and vacuous life.
|22 weeks 16 hours ago||Thank you AD||
I have been saying this since the game. Don't know why but this mistake was given little attention anywhere. Not negging anyone, Harbaugh is great, but maybe Baxter took that last play "off". Sparty s only chance was to overload that side of the line, maybe "cheat" (in a gamesmanship sort of way, perfectly acceptable) a bit offside, plow the snapper to maybe get a bad snap.
Still a long long long shot but our formation didn't make the risk of disaster almost nil. And Blake "punching " the ball in mid air was just panic.

But did notice the many "typos". Thought it was me,,guess not.
|26 weeks 3 days ago||Officials||
Worst I ve ever seen has been this year. Make the NFL refs look great. But remember, the NFL refs are not " full time " either although I am sure their training and evaluation are far superior to college.
|26 weeks 3 days ago||Kudos||
From a fellow Bronx Blue (parent) and former 10463 resident( I think you once noted you live in Riverdale), I look forward to reading your commentary every week. Keep up the good work. Usually spot on and a great read. Yeah, the refs this year, simply hard to believe some of these calls. I may have missed it given that I was beside myself after the MSU debacle but I haven't seen much, if any, about how MSU "blew up" Sypnewski on the last play. I thought contact with the long snapper could not be made for a full second to protect them. I could be wrong. Any info on this.
|26 weeks 4 days ago||Didn't take advantage...||
Think we threw for 140 agst MSU, took advantage of their special teams but not their secondary. The blown wheel route that made it 24-21 was huge. And lost in end game disaster.
|26 weeks 4 days ago||Are you kidding?||
No! If I could keyboard or say this a billion times, I would. No!
