Not for another two hours, it isn't. And on a related subject, I wish we'd stop scheduling our games for nine in the morning. After a reasonably pleasurable Friday night, nine comes mighty early.

I remember Amp Lee as having one principal trick. He'd stop on a dime to let would-be tacklers go past. I think the tackling technique he exploited is called "overpursuing." IIRC he didn't do much in the pro's, probably because overpursuers didn't play there.

"Good teams win the close games." Bill James, the baseball statistician, investigated that statement back in the '70's when I was reading each yearly Almanac that he published. IIRC he crunched a bit and found no pattern in one-run games -- they could go either way -- but that good teams won the 14 - 1 laughers.

My Nexus 7 shows the text of the link, but the text isn't blue and doesn't link. Any ideas?

I hear that Oregon looks to schedule home-and-home opponents but nobody wants to tangle. Have we turned the Ducks down? If so, why?

It grieves me to watch team mates on the sidelines congratulate a player by whapping him on the helmet.

As for Lindsey Wilson, the name is funny because of:

1. Sparkling Burgundy (Monmousseau) saved for celebrating the win. Oh, well.
2. Dolin vermouth.
3. Portuguese anise liqueur (25%) (think Ouzo).
4. La veillee est jeune. (The evening is young.)
I'm pleased and excited that Michigan has its own breweries (Founders and ??) now pumping out stouts and IPA's. When I lived in AA and Detroit (early '70s) I'd make runs to Windsor to pick up cases Molson Export just to get something with a little taste. OK, now here comes the question that will chisel your arteries and frost your hearts:
I've sampled east-of-Mississippi microbrews from NC to northern WVa and in Chicago and NYC. The many different styles had different colors and names, but they really all tasted about the same, and it was boring. I haven't sampled Michigan. Really good beers and radical differences among the brews of a single brewhouse are common, if not quite the norm, here in Portland OR. How does Michigan compare with here?

I get a black, blank box where I suspect other people can see some movie. That happens frequently on this site but not elsewhere. What's the format you're using?
