1960s;: "Crazy," by Patsy Cline
1970s: "One of Those Nights" by the Eagles
1980s: "Billie Jean," by MJ (barely beating out "Who's Crying Now?" by Journey, and, seeing BFC's post just above there made me think of another great guiltypleasure, "Goodbye to You," by Scandal)
1990s: "Cryin'" by Aerosmith
2000s: "I Ain't As Good As I Once Was," by Toby Keith
2010s: "Call Me Maybe," by Carly Rae Jepson

Don bracken? Was the great early 80s punter, who played for the Packers, not drafted?

It was barely distinguishable from McDonalds. If the burger was at all fresh -- and it took damn long enough it better have been -- it was lost in a generic sugarplastic bun,
5 Guys also takes a while, but delivers the whole package. I'd take it over Shake Shack, which is the conversation we have here on the other coast.
5 Guys also wins the fries contest by a landslide.

call themselves "New York," play in New Jersey.
I used to be that many more stadiums were in the burbs, but there has been a revival in moving them back downtown (as in from the Silverdome to Ford Field). Have there ever been any other major sports teams that played in a different state from the one suggested by their name, though?

Now I have "Walk Like An Egyptian" running through my head.

Wrong. #2 is worse than #3 which is OK. The most recent one is Shia LeAwful.

I'll be That Guy: I'm guessing that the Penske Poll has something to do with nominations for crew chief at the Brickyard in Indy. The Pesky Pole, however...

Excellent post, which I'll summarize as follows: Always wear your cup

I was glad michigan lost to Norte dame in the 2013 CCHA finals -- because in so doing Yale (which also happens to employ me) snuck into the NCAA tournament, which they would go on to win of course.

The Cubs are still lovable, while the Lions lead the NFL in stomping infractions.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||overall top/bottom||
Best overall: Spurs -- great product, community firendly
Worst overall: Maple Leafs -- not the worst overall product, but the worst compared to expectations, and with horrible relations. Imagine if the Browns management issues (and record) were pinned on the Cowboys.

Good thing MGoBlog is not covered by HIPA. One important instruction, though -- in season, all injuries are "to the body" and "unsure of how long they'll keep [whomever] out."

Ok, but now I really like "Fine Canadian Salsa" as his derivative nickname. Or maybe that's the proper way to describe a three: "And there's Sauce Castillo, with some fine Canadian Salsa, to break the tie and put the Kings up by 3!"

Depends on the sport: for hockey it is preferred, regardless of age. For football, wear it if you've got and don't have a stick up your backside. For baseball, it's fine (and bring a glove, so long as any ball you snag still goes to a kid). For basketball, let the guys on the court wear the jerseys.

As long as beilein can go out and bring in a new Inbounds Play next year, we should be fine. More than fine, really, so long as that Inbounds Play is of the caliber of some of the Inbounds Plays we've had in the recent past.

he sure makes some boneheaded plays sometimes. I'll take Walton"s steadier presence, with Spike's high-risk/high-reward act providing the spark off the bench

there is still a reasonable case for the NIT to select a 22-8(ish) yale-harvard loser over a 16-16 big ten team anyway

|8 weeks 6 days ago||Just a quick ECAC note||
First off, selection sunday doesn't happen until all the conference tournaments are finished. I'm not sure about Hockey East, but I know that the ECAC format has two rounds of best-of-three series before a single-elmination final four. The upshot is that Colgate, Yale, and Quinnipiac all have this coming weekend off, and then each hosts a best-of-three starting next Friday. Also, watch out for St. Lawrence. They may be 20th or 21st in the PWR, but have the chops to move quickly up the volatile mix in the rankings.

Here's a story (with several video links) about a massive brawl in the AHL game between Hershey and Bridgeport last week. There's a few entagnlements right after a Bridgeport player runs the Hershey goalie, but the fun really starts when that player and Chris Brown get into it as they make their way to the box.

At least M's won't have sleeves. And none of this is as bad as then eon crap foisted upon the viewing public last March (or was it the year before?)
