That's Vertonghen in the background of the Kompany shot not Vermalen as mentioned.

A deep run in the Champions League every year and failing that winning the Europa League. Anything less is a failure
|21 weeks 5 hours ago||I caught the interview||
I was really stunned at how thoughtful Nik was about the whole process. He was diplomatic and took a couple of tough questions with a diplomacy I think very few would have shown.
He did say that Mitchs' decision was likely to effect Glenns'. Which I guess is what we all expected/ But he said that his was his own independant of that.
The other important thing is that he gave the impression that he would make his announcement by the end of next week. So the waiting game shouldn't last to long. I do feel like he's 99% gone though. It's the best decision for him.

Thats not how it works. If he works and lives in America, as he is likely to do because the Raptors pick is too late, he likely will not have to pay Canadian taxes. He will likely make his home where he plays and claim his primary residence there and there will be very little in the way of Canadian investments to tie him to paying more than a small token of taxes in Canada.
Also there is a massive misconception about income taxes in Canada. At the highest bracket, the one he will surely inhabit as a pro it isn't that dissimilar. The difference is the lack of as many write offs. Thats said if he were to play in Califoronia, NYC, and Boston the tax burden would be roughly a wash.

This is like watching your childhood sweetheart make out with a bunch of hillbillies. do not like. do not like at all
|34 weeks 2 days ago||I think it's more interesting||
I think it's more interesting watchign Texas leak out their list, in order, of coaches they've heard of with names big enough to placate their fan base. Art Briles and David Shaw were the first college names that came out. This is all after a list of polite declines from the pros.
|34 weeks 2 days ago||The Texas disease||
They were also putting out feelers for David Shaw earlier in the week. This is just Texas throwing every name at the wall and hoping one sticks.
If I had to put money on it I'd say it ends up being Art Briles. Also maybe put a sneaky bet down on absurdly photogenic GQ model Kliff Kingsbury

I'm just ellated the game was close enough that it didn't require the use of Joy Division in between segments. Gallon is magic

Now I'm sort of wistful that I don't have vision strong enough to have been confused by the shoes. They looked a bit different to me but I guess the peepers are starting to go.

Looking to pickup a single for the game. last minute I know.

Lord knows how I found my way here, I genuinely don't remember. I've read for years and only recently joined in. But thank you all for being one of the more civil, intelligent and genuinely funny sections of the interwebs. Thank you one and all
|39 weeks 2 days ago||welp||
I guess it wasn’t realistic for me to expect him to deliver a soliloquy on his failures in play calling and leadership as well as a personal apology to me. But he kept running the play fake into the third quarter against state, so stranger things have happened.
|39 weeks 2 days ago||It's not quite the same||
My better half attended Stanford so I have been to a lot of Cardinal games. While it is a wonderful experience in comparative fan bases it isn't quite the same. It took Harbaugh calling the schools bluff on their commitment to the program to start them on the path they are on now.
The fan base and expectation at Stanford are very different. This is a fan base that ti me seems like they feel they are playing with house money. So while winning is great they just don't seem to enjoy it as much as we do. This is a function of there being very little expectation placed by the fans. There isn't the tremendous weight of history on them.
I'm not saying this to detract from their great school or fantastic program. I say it mostly because I don't feel like it is a fair comparison.
All that said I would still take David Shaw as our HC in a heartbeat.

"Whom the Gods wish to destroy, they first call promising"
You start a year with the night game and it feels like with hindsight it was only ever likely to end up in weeping and rending of garments.
I just genuinely wish I could find the courage to at least Irish wake style celebrate this season Saturday. Mostly I fear a pit of bottomless self loathing for the weekend. The hell with I'm going either way
|39 weeks 3 days ago||That wasn't my experience in||
That wasn't my experience in San Diego. I distinctly recall getting dragged into the neverland of middle 30's denial that is Moondoggies in PB and having to deal with all of those ohio twits. It's like a damned yolk around my neck.

being one injury away from starting the biggest tuba player in the band at guard likely doesn't help them.

you know for a sense of symmetry. God help me if it's any closer than that though
