Plus 1000. On the app, so I can't actually up vote, but yes. This.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I lived in LA from '91-'95.||
I lived in LA from '91-'95. My recollection of that phenomenon is not a happy one: FSU stretching out to a 3-TD lead before breakfast.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||The Office (UK version) and||
The Office (UK version) and Firefly are both great, although neither is really a drama, and neither reached a full season's worth of episodes.
|5 weeks 2 hours ago||Raiding our other neighbor to the south||
Strange to see so many IN targets -- standard practice for basketball, I know, but a veritble flurry of Hoosier targets for football here.
|5 weeks 8 hours ago||Isengard Buckeyes beware||
I picture one of Tolkein's Ents waging war against the various Goblins and Trolls in the second Fellowship of the Rings book/movie. Not mobile -- perhaps even downright slow -- but lethal.

That's already true
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Off to a good start! Gas||
Off to a good start! Gas company came by, found a leak, and shut off or gas. So now I'm waiting for the plumber, and hoping all fixes are quick and easy. Looks like we'd be grilling our way through the weekend, even if we didn't want to. That and cold showers.

"I know that there are people in the world that do not love their fellow human beings, and I hate people like that." Of course, the song itself: https://youtu.be/aIlJ8ZCs4jY

Isn't that exactly what happened to Al Kaline, who finished his career with 399?

I chose "Clicking on the little red down arrow."

RVB. He was like Kovacs, except without the walk on narrative. Never gave up on a play, never took one off.

I'm pretty sure we can thank a beer company for it.

And let's not lose sight of what was at stake in this battle: the right of Mexico to default on their debts that theyowed the European powers. So, if anybody should be celebrating, you'd think it would be the Greeks.

Someone is not accounting for the Massacre at Wounded Knee.

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.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Giants and Jets||
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.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||But||
The Cubs are still lovable, while the Lions lead the NFL in stomping infractions.
|11 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.
|12 weeks 3 hours ago||HIPA? No HIPA||
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."

ESPN.com looks just like Si.com. Site redesign or sports media nerd AFD joke?
