Wow, did that just happen? I upvoted all of your comments in the tattletale/Stasi thread, guess it was in vain.
|54 min 18 sec ago||I appreciate your responding||
I appreciate your responding to me but insulting athletes (and coaches, and athletic directors, and whoever else doesn't measure up) seems to be a favorite pastime here. Whatever, "IBD" I guess.
That is a pretty awful post but I think the best way to handle it is to leave it up for others to call him out on what an ass he is and to punish him with downvotes.

This is not correct at all. Media engage in self-censorship all of the time.

Please enlighten us as to the standards that were violated leading to such censorship. The first act of censorship, if you believe in such a thing, should be to delete this rather shameful thread.

First time I've downvoted a thread. This is childish even by the rather lax standards of this blog.

I'm almost as old as you, so I hear what you're saying, but I am so glad the pendulum has swung the other way. My sister used to drive around drunk with a car full of drunk friends in high school, undr age, and the cops would tell her to be careful. One of those friends got behind the wheel drunk and wound up dead, age 17. My dad used to drive home drunk from the country club after card night. The first time I helped my mom pull him out of his t bird in the ditch at the bottom of our hill I was 8 years old, and I cried. The second time I helped her pull him out, I was 9, and I thought it was bullshit and told him so. Luckily, he woke up and hasn't had a drink in 40 years. I'm glad he's alive, drinking and driving almost killed him, like it killed my cousin, and my sisters friend, and tens of thousands every year. The "crime against humanity" is when someone has too much to drink and kills someone with a car. I always tell my teenage sons, I have an account with the taxi company, or they can call me absolutely any time in any condition, if they're doing it to avoid getting in a car with someone who has been drinking, themselves included, they get a free pass, no questions asked.

You're right, I'm by the kitchen tv which doesn't get premium channels because I don't want to pay Verizon yet another 8 bucks per month. I will stream it.

Holy shit I owned 4 Toyotas, including the Sienna, and never spent more than $100 fixing anything. I took 2 Hondas close to 200k miles each and never spent more than $500 (I do a lot of my own work). I think you got a lemon.

OP your knee injury will probably come back to haunt you when you're 50, mine did. Bad knee injury when I was 15, playing soccer. Now that I'm old, I still put thousands of miles per year on my bicycle, but walking up the stairs is scary. Long plane rides to Asia are torture. And if I happen to squat down for a while, I then have to think about how I'm going to stand up without risking falling over. And I'm in pretty damn good shape for 50. I need surgery but keep putting it off because...I love to ride my bike. And I'm busy.
I also tore my rotator cuff sliding back into base like another poster did, never got it repaired, now there is a point when I left my arm way over my head towards the back where I hit a wall and have zero strength to continue. And of course pain.

Valerie Jarrett. Fairly powerful person right now. Not sure if she plays pickup ball with the president and his education secretary.

If you can find this ...
it is very fine, much stronger than its cousin and with a more pronounced roasted malt flavor. And rumored that Guinness still uses the traditional method of retaining old wort for new batches, unlike the draught. Raising one to the mgoblog community now.

Yes, I disagree with your "stance". Our football program does not suffer from a lack of funds, as our interim AD has demonstrated with the pool of money made available to the coaches. I hope they make even more, and share even more with the rest of the AD and the general fund.

Especially since some schools actually lose money participating in bowl games, and you can hardly say participation in some of the bowls is valuable for the exposure.

Yes, a university that beat our team right next to the ads for Dr. Z, the ambulance chasers, and, of course, the new anti-manspreading campaign.

Let's be nice. While most students do commute, NJIT is a research university, not a "tech" school, with a larger research budget than, for example, Alabama.

I agree. I think Rudock comes here and his experience and ability to put up decent numbers in B1G play earns the spot, at least initially. One of the younger guys could step in and steal it later in the season.
