I think moreso than saying her weight was a disadvantage, they were just emphasizing that she's TINY.

As you're a noob to the show, it should be noted that this is her 3rd time (I believe) appearing on this show, and she is dating a guy (Brent Steffensen) who, although failing in his attempt this year, is a so-called "legend" of the sport. She's been doing dedicated full-time obstacle course and ninja warrior training for the last couple of years, so she does have an advantage over many competitors in that respect.
Not to diminish her accomplishment, b/c her lack of physical stature is something significant to overcome, but she's not just some random super-fit woman they found on the street.

Great power-to-weight ratio. Can't wait to see what your ant can do on the course. The jumping obstacles might be a little tough, though. May go with a drone ant with wings?

The pole grasper jump was pretty impressive. Great coordination. The thing that struck me is that all the guys who seemed to leap for the 2nd to last pole did so out of desperation and the hands tended to completely miss the pole. Kacy Catanzaro seemed to do so more intentionally than desperately (if that makes sense). Also, the leap on the previous obstacle (can't remember what it's called - tilting something) was pretty sweet.
Did I mention that my 6 and 8 year old daughters LOVE the show?

Not much of a road cyclist, but was in Des Moines last year for the Ironkids Tri Nationals and saw a thing on RAGBRAI in the museum there. Anyone ever done that? Looks pretty awesome.

To be fair, he is still only 18 years old, so this type of testosterone-fueled bravado is completely normal. The current thinking is that the brain isn't fully developed until around age 25, so he is a few neurons short yet (read: 18 year olds tend to be dumb) ;)

Ah, the days when Blockbuster and Hollywood Video were all the rage. And my college roommate had a Micron circa 1996?

That's how I feel about JJB also.
I think it's just awesome the fact that a stud football player is an unabashed SW nerd. One of those neat unexpected things, like Steve Breaston the poet.

Beer garden on TOP of the luxury boxes! But then again, drunk people on TOP of the luxury boxes probably isn't a great combination for safety...

after all the stupid things Gordon Gee and Gene Smith have said, and the numerous reports of smoke/fire that come out of that program, how can you not?

Visor is nice, shorts are ok, the polo shirt and sweater at the top are meh due to the back stripe, the yellow football shirt is pretty good, the rest is just terrible.

I assumed OP meant to say "not much that's really NEW here..." as this is a story most of us have heard many times before, although I was clearly proven wrong by the response below. But yes, always inspiring, even the 20th time.

That's a lot of corporate advertising on there.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||memories||
We had an early 80's Olds Cutlass Cruiser in light metallic blue with faux wood paneling when I was a kid. My dad hung curtains that my mom cut/sewed in the cargo area so my sister and I could sleep all stretched out without the sun in our faces on long trips. Those were the days.

Even if the US do not advance, can Tim Howard win the Golden Glove???

Less than an inch is clearly an exaggeration, but referring to the strike off the crossbar in extra time and the PK off the post. Of course, Brazil had multiple opportunities in the first half (despite the extremely sluggish and sloppy 2nd) and could easily have scored 3 goals. Regardless, they're lucky to be alive.

Have you posted this to the Michigan alumni club? FB, twitter, heck even LinkedIn? There are (national/local) UM Alumni groups represented on all those channels.

Who has the better resume over the last 3 seasons? 2014 result (Coaches rank, 247 Recruiting Rank)
Shows that Michigan has been the best recruiting team over the past 3 seasons by far, while msu has been most consistent in terms of final ranking. Michigan has clearly been the class of the conference over the past 2 seasons, though, in terms of recruiting and final ranking.
I'd be surprised if Ryan and Izzo are not 7-8 in either order. Any higher and, well, I just don't know what to tell you.
Ahead of Beilein must be Coach K, Calipari, Pitino, Donovan, Self, and Gregg Marshall of Wichita State. Don't know the order, though.
