Thanks for the serious response to my non-serious response. :)
I even had a winky smiley and everything :(

it's not freedom to rule one's domain as one sees fit? ;)
|4 days 10 hours ago||right||
because it would be completely reasonable for our new athletic director to go on the radio and criticize the commissioner. that would be such a DB move. interpret "DB" however you wish.

The OP's intent was to say, "Haha, national sportswriter STILL can't get the name of sparty's school right, lolzers!"
What really happened is that it confuses Michigan as having been blown out by alabama which, no thank you and bad memories #ihatejerryworld

They have it for the ACC (FSU, although UNC and UVA are also good) and Big 12 (Texas, although I kinda like K-State for some reason)

Or anywhere in between. Just win, baby.

Although you've never had the bells and whistles, I've found that even now-basic things like bluetooth are a gamechanger, particularly with all the new hands-free laws. With Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, you no longer need to separately pay for a navigation system.
You can get a really decked out Civic for well under $30k. You could also look at other compacts, like the Mazda3, Kia Forte, Hyundai Elantra, and VW Golf or Jetta.
If you want something a little bigger, you can get well-equipped cars like the Accord, Sonata, Optima, Fusion, Malibu, and Altima for under $30k and still have an average fuel economy around 30 mpg.
I've rented the Mazda3, Forte, Elantra, Optima, Sonata, Fusion, Focus, Malbu, and Optima (and probably more I'm forgetting) and have nothing bad to say about them. I also love that Bluetooth is pretty much standard on all the cars these days.
I also agree that safety is more or less a wash and it really comes down to personal preference in terms of how comfortable you feel in the car and price. Think also about how you're going to be using the car and make sure it fits those use cases. If you make frequent trips to home depot for sheets of plywood and 2x4s, maybe an SUV or wagon is a better bet than a sedan.

That's a LOT of cars. What about style? SUV/CUV, sedan, hatch/wagon, sporty? Do you do outdoor activities and want something that can accommodate a trailer hitch? AWD/4WD? Bells and whistles or plain jane? American/Japanese/Korean/European? Any brands you do NOT want?
Most cars can accommodate iPhones now. Some cars have Android Auto, which I would definitely go for if you have an Android phone. Bluetooth is pretty standard.
|6 days 9 hours ago||I have an '03 I35||
It's actually been pretty good and no issues with PS or tranny leaks. Do have some minor oil leaks, although I think that was bad gaskets by oil filter and/or drain plug. Replaced it all and now good.
The thing I hate about my I35 (and all Nissans of this vintage, apparently) is that the exhaust system is apparently completely uncoated/treated, so i've had the following completely rust through within the last 9 years we've lived in IL: both exhaust flanges (A-B and B-C), exhaust hangars, and brackets.
This has resulted in the pipes hanging low and hitting the crossmembers and other random things under there. I've hacked up a fix, which was to strap on a piece of member on the crossmember secured with large hose clamps to support the exhause pipe. It works, but still annoying. My wife took it to the dealer when I was out of town and they saw it and said, "Great idea - definitely cheaper than replacing all the brackets/hangers and it gets the job done." They undid it to check out the exhaust system, then put it back :)

That was my thought, also. Two sports and a diamond? Football and baseball, it seems. Good luck to the young man.

Those dudes are pretty funny.
|1 week 8 hours ago||I don't know about that||
I'd say more like Lewis = King, with King's advantage being size and zone
I would say, though, that Lewis > Tabor
|1 week 10 hours ago||so what?||
One could then make the argument that Carl Lewis is the overall better athlete and more dominant Olympian because he was proficient in both sprints AND a field event. And remember, Lewis also won a gold in the 200m in 1984, so he wasn't a one trick pony in track, either.
|1 week 10 hours ago||How is Bolt more dominant,||
How is Bolt more dominant, though? Phelps has more medals, gold medals, world records, and more Olympic games than Bolt.
|1 week 1 day ago||if you're looking for a specialist||
then it's bolt. otherwise, it had to be Phelps. along the lines of being the greatest athlete across a range of disciplines, why isn't Ashton Eaton in the conversation? he just won his second consecutive decathlon gold and is the world record holder.
|1 week 1 day ago||you do realize||
that swimming is also a race with margins of hundredths of seconds

win the 110m hurdles? doubtful.
|1 week 3 days ago||hackenberg||
not only most maligned, but probably also the most hyped quarterback in the big ten over his career. which, frankly, I never understood. he was decent as a freshman, but i never saw anything special his last 2 years. I guess he's got "potential".
