Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

Mr. Wagner is nothing like Dave Brandon and you'd be hard pressed to find any musical theater kid who had anything less than gushing praise.
That's not to say that this decision wasn't Brandon-esque, or that it isn't an apt comparison in this instance. Just know the persnickity was coming from a very different, more traditionalist less commercial "wow experience", kind of place. A place that gets oddly religious about musical theater. And capitalizing the names of plays.
They do killer renditions of "Happy Birthday To You" too, if one is ever so lucky.
Trivia: Wagner also taught Aaron Sorkin (also a musical theater kid) and there have been occasional 'easter eggs' like a character or mailbox with the name "Mr. Wagner".

But if we're in the business of placating those taking umbrage. How about 10 yards on the ensuing kickoff?

Posting this had been on my to-do list for this slow news week. Favorite bit is the student who faked his own death then hid out in the attic of the curch at State & Huron.
Also, all the Charles Guiteau references, this must be incorporated into future M lore.

if you're any kind of enjoyer of foods
I wandered around there for a good long time and also found Neal's Yard Dairy (http://www.nealsyarddairy.co.uk/shops_borough.html) and happened upon the place where Zingerman's gets many of their UK cheeses. They even sell the Zingerman's books in the store and were happy to chat and rave about them for a good time and we ended up getting some nice deals on picnic food.
Given warm weather, that's probably not a bad way to spend part of the non-football trip.

It really sounds like nothing to denigrate despite not being the type of cheerleading we would celebrate or expect if we were all just horny guys on the sideline. It sounds like what they one was closer to an athletic sport then to an exhibition for miniskirts and and (un)healthy diets.

As I understand biology, there's nothing that keeps a woman from being 6' 2" 230 with some quick and the ability to break a tackle, or make one.
Regardless of this specific woman, how does your brain work that it goes "butbut, mee mer merr" instead of "yay!"
Some of you got your mind on "is" and are confusing that with "ought to be".

Man, that sounds terrible, being so confused about whether you could tackle someone, in football, wearing pads. I mean, she might just break into peices. Heavens to betsy.
As for locker rooms: why would they be any different than bathrooms? And it's not like this is the first time anyone has ever encountered this issue. It's been done before.

I hear that. I think I'm having trouble thinking its shenanigans generally when it's certainly not the case with Wheatley Jr., but reading "Smith is expected to choose between in-state Georgia and (of course) UCLA, with the Bruins the surprise favorite to land him ($)." just looks all sorts of bad.
