Any real gingery ginger ale is good. Also a fan of stuff by Henry Weinhard's and Boylan's - birch beer, ginger beer, root beer...
For easy access, nothing beats an ice cold regular Coke.

A pop what? Pop band? Definitely New Kids on the Block, before all this NKOTB nonsense. Also the Backstreet Boys, original version.

They were the LA Angels (b/c Los Angeles = the angels), California Angels, Anaheim Angels, and now the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
I think they're the only team with TWO cities in their name.

Take his statements at face value - he values being a basketball player for Michigan, but he values his academics more. Neither basketball nor academics were where he wanted them to be, so he felt he had to choose - and the decision was academics.
If the pressure came from anywhere, it was from within. He doesn't seem like the type who would settle for anything less than his best, and he wasn't meeting that criterion in either domain.

I get the semantics, but let's just call it a postseason conference championship. That would be inclusive of all sports with either a championship game/meet/match or tournament.

Killer forehand AND spirit fingers? Nice!

I agree with that to an extent. The coaching here has been masterful, as well as the ability to build a really solid roster with players who are unselfish and know their roles. There is no true superstar on this team. This is their starting 5 - Horford (NTH), Korver, Teague, Millsap, Carroll.

My immediate first thought, also. I guess growing up in Atlanta and religiously watching Dukes of Hazzard as a kid influenced me in some way. And no, I don't consider the movie version a worthy reboot.

And only two PROGRAMS (UK, UCLA) have won more national championships. And every Duke natty (5) has come under Krzyzewski. IU and UNC also have 5 championships, but under multiple coaches.

As a guy who grew up in Atlanta and followed the Hawks from the early 80s in my childhood, nobody ever called him "Dom." He was always Dominique, or just 'Nique.

One minor correction - Booker is a freshman at UK. The rest is, sadly, on the mark, sarcasm and all.

Is there still that one off 94 on the way to DTW? i've been there a few times.

Best team I ever saw was Wheeler HS in Marietta, GA in 1994, my senior year. Shareef Abdur-Raheem was the headliner for that team and they just dominated class AAAA, which was the highest classification at the time.

I've just been there for business few times recently but for a few days each time. I have a rule to try to eat local wherever I am and a college town just seemed to make sense for that.

Freshman year was 94 for me, where I learned of Pine email and IRC. I can't remember when I started checking out ESPN.com, but I think it was around 95 or so. Used to play Doom II online with all the other geeks at the UGLI computer lab instead of studying for orgo. I quit after Warcraft II, but many of my friends continued on with Command and Conquer, Starcraft, Diablo, etc. at NUBS, and then the Media Union after gaming was banned at NUBS due to a fight breaking out over Starcraft, I think.

I thought so too the first time I visited, but there's some good stuff there.
Anything in the Whiteaker neighborhood is pretty interesting. I had a fantastic meal at Izakaya Meiji, Papa Soul's, Ninkasi Brewing, and Vanilla Jill's Scoops and Soups for dessert.
the 5th street public market has a few interesting places, including the food court. Was a little disappointed with the burgers from NW Burgers, but Ocha and Marche aren't bad.
Across the street, Cornucopia is pretty great, and the Oregon Electric Station has been consistently good for a finer dining option.
For Thai, I've tried Ta Ra Rin and Sabai and liked them both. Very different atmospheres, but both were tasty.
That's all I can think of off the top of my head. Good if you look.
I've tried a handful of the places on the Eugene Weekly list and can vouch for its voracity ;)
Next time I'm there, I'm going to try Off the Waffle. If it's anything like Waffle Window, I know I'll be a happy camper.
Also want to try the Korean places (noodle bowl, chingu, arirang) to see how authentic (or not) they are. Sometimes, you just want the food of your ancestors, know what I mean?

Harbaugh Obsession Name: Jim Har-BQ (or Harbaugh-Q)
Dog Show Name: Go Blue-BQ in the Big House
Bad Dog Name: Falcon Dong Punch
Big Puppy Name: Mitch
NOTE: none of these names is particularly serious, except maybe Mitch, although it'd take a real mgoblogger to get the big puppy connection. I guess if it's a small puppy, it could also be an overly subtle ironic name.

On the other hand, it's because Michigan is Michigan.
