Since the Glenfiddich, Glenkinchie and Macallan have all been mentioned, I'll go with a 15-year Glenmorangie.

wearing a ND helmet. Credit to interwebs for picture of dumb chicken and helmet.
|1 week 3 days ago||Wasn't talking about small markets||
or big markets. I was talking about the game itself.
|1 week 4 days ago||I stopped watching||
because of the referees. There are a billion calls they can make every game, from traveling (does that even exist for the "stars"?) to any number of fouls. If they were consistent then I coud forgive it but if one team is getting farther ahead they'll suddenly start making the calls to keep it close. Same crap happens in college but to a lesser degree. The refs control the game too much and in the NBA they get their marching orders from Stern.
I'd rather the game was "playground rules" and players called fouls themselves.

Particularly when it comes to taking an NSAID after surgery. Depending on the nasal procedure done, it could lead to either a poor cosmetic outcome or intractable bleeding.

If you take six pills at once and chase it with a beer then you could end up in liver failure. The spacing doesn't have to be perfect, but there is a reason for it.

If the 2nd OP typed "Jabrill Peppers" into the search bar, the link is the 8th one down on the first page of results.
I actually don't have a problem with the repost but would prefer the second post to say something like "This was posted six months ago, link, but now that Jabrill Peppers is more of a possibility and some may have missed the original here is an interesting story about him."
|3 weeks 5 days ago||It all depends||
on exactly what you are trying to do. Do you want to take video and edit it? For Youtube or professionally? Or is the laptop for school or work? If you want to professionally edit video, then a laptop is the wrong way to go.
|4 weeks 8 hours ago||Love Mathlete's work||
But you're right and we're out on a statistical limb here. Hang time is an important unaccounted and confounding variable. Perhaps kickers are just better than they were ten years ago or there are better punt coverages or there are more fair catches to try and avoid injury or more kicks are angled out of bounds. While this is a good start, the data would have to be segregated into traditional punt vs. spread punt teams in order to get a meaningful comparison.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||I still think it is a charge||
and I'm probably super-biased too. If I was a fan of Syracuse I'd probably be 100% sure the other way.
But, compared to the Duke flops I've seen over the years - this actually looks like a charge to me too...
|6 weeks 4 days ago||The rules seem to contradict your post||
Particularly Artcle 4 sections a and d.
FWIW, it looked like a clear charge real time to me. In slo mo, I can see where he may be sliding a bit but Triche was out of control and I think that's why it was called a charge.

It's really that simple.
Forgiveness is for those who want to be forgiven.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||I grew up||
With Bo leading Michigan when the only questions were whether you'd beat OSU and who you'd lose to in the Rose Bowl (yeah, I loved Bo but he was terrible in the Rose Bowl). BBall in the late 80s and early 90s was awesome. And hockey? You'd get free pizza if they scored 5 or 6 goals in a game and they actually stopped doing the giveaway because that was such a frequent occurrence. Carter catching that pass from Wangler? Didn't know when or how we'd win but just knew it would come. Same for Desmond's catch against Notre Dame. And of course we'd beat OSU every year Cooper was their coach, no matter which Heisman candidate OSU had that year. And you never lose home games to anyone, period.
Not to say that there weren't disappointments. But I'm glad that many are starting to get that same level of expectation. When Brady Hoke says it's "Michigan fergodsakes", this is what he is talking about. I've kinda taken it for granted that everyone knew what that meant, but now realize that the next generation hasn't had it as good as I did. Here's to pendulum swinging back in our favor again!
|7 weeks 1 day ago||I tried to say the same thing above||
But you said it better...
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Very well written||
But I have to say, having grown up in a different era of Michigan sports, that this left me a little bewildered and saddened. Bewildered because I have always expected Michigan to win - football, basketball or hockey. Saddened because I now realize that there is a group of younger folks who never really tasted true Michigan dominance. I wish for you guys/gals now only the serenity of expecting victory even when down by 14 points in the 4th quarter or 13 points with 2 1/2 minutes to go.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||The 90s||
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Why sit behind Golson?||
Because you'll be the guy when Golson gets hurt.
Every QB gets hurt nowadays. The backup gets their chance. The fan base then turns on the starter if the team isn't winning. I'll wait to see Mathlete's take down the road, but my guess is ND is headed for the dreaded "regression to the mean" rather than Bama's "the exception proves the rule" dominance. Kiel would have gotten his chance at a big name school.
With that said, he's a kid and he wants to be "the guy". I don't blame him but he needs to stick to his next decision.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Great win||
If only all the tourney games were at home!
|11 weeks 5 days ago||More than that||
It's a victory, a moral victory, a morale victory and a 3-game winning streak.
I think Racine may have had his "brunette" moment in that he's getting more comfortable in net. In hindsight, it was a bit unfair to assume he'd go all Marty Turco from the start. But he's a big kid and fills up the net and his defenders aren't hanging him out to dry.
I like Trouba bringing the puck up the ice because he's fast and disruptive. I wish he'd stay outof the penalty box more, but that will come...
I think this has been the most painful hockey season I have gone to and it is great to see improvement even if late.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Those calls||
were absolute garbage... The official who called the elbowing on Trouba was nowhere near the play and could only see the backside of Trouba, so how he called that nonsense is beyond me (FWIW, I'm completely biased and the play happened right in front of me). As for the second call, the whole play should have been stopped for an interference call on Ferris State. Oh well...
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Been going to the games||
and they are finally coming together. Playing with more intensity, crisper passing, better attacking of the net, better defense and goaltending. Yep, I just went through all the cliches but they're all true.
Racine in particular looked great in warmups and just seems relaxed out there tonight.

Caught you, Magnus, you were watching Shawshank Redemption last night, too!
|15 weeks 3 days ago||So...||
Part of the idea of the seat exchange (U of M's version) was to keep opposing fans out of the club area. Is that something that you plan on encouraging as well?
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Macallan||
|16 weeks 1 day ago||The real questions are:||
1. How much IGF1 is in what you are buying. These kind of products generally don't have great quality control and are mostly "fillers" (inert substances).
So, yeah, it could work but only if formulated and applied correctly and used in conjunction with a strength training program.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||I'm glad||
someone saw the episode and got the reference.
+1 to you!
|16 weeks 1 day ago||It's no secret||
that IGF-1 or HGH or other substances will increase lean muscle. Your point about bioavailability is spot on. The amount of the hormone and it's method of administration (and absorption) is what matters.
