|1 day 15 hours ago||Porsche C4S Cab||
Porsche C4S Cab or BMW M5 are probably the fastest cars I've owned...with my first car '78 MGB being the slowest...
That said, I have driven my friend's 918 Spyder...887 bhp...and that's a seriously fast car.

What Would Nike Do? (should be a bumper sticker)

JPP did not "blow the finger off" his hand, he suffered burns and nerve damage in the finger that if left to heal would have taken a very long time to get him back on the field. Instead, he opted for the Ronnie Lott approach and just had the finger (and therefore the problem) eliminated. I think the CB from Tampa Bay had his fingers blown off.
Perhaps this is a difference without a distinction, but nevertheless, the loss of JPP's finger was an intentional medical decision to amputate his finger to speed his recovery and return to football...his finger was not blown off.
Still stupid to play with fireworks. I guess my mom was right.

tried them after "3 and Out" highlighted the joy they can bring....got that one right.
|5 weeks 12 hours ago||I think that gig is over||
I seem to recall Franklin's making an announcement recently that if you're on line you're the one that has to order and buy the food...no more placeholders.
But OMG it is soooo worth the wait.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Top 10 nationally?||
Top 10 in Canada? Is that good? Is that like being world famous in Poland?
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Agree||
FUCK Cancer. It took my mom from me way too soon. No respect for a disease that would do that to me or anyone else. FUCK CANCER

Hamptons-bound...which means sitting in traffic for hours in the world's longest parking lot...the Long Island Expressway (j/k I avoid the LIE entirely).
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Is that still a thing?||
Haven't heard about Sporting News since they outlawed magazines and newspapers, leaving us with only blogs to read.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||So many choices||
Geppetto's (was a pizza place on State Street just down the block from Mr. Spots), pizza had a spicy sauce that I loved.
Angelo's deep fried raisin bread french toast/ open faced turkey sandwich (before they changed the gravy)
Pizza House's pizza pocket (ground beef, mushrooms and pepperoni)
Zingermann's Bill's 2 over Prime (brisket and turkey) on a grill rye with honey mustard
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Pretty good series||
The last few books have lagged a bit for me...but overall a nice series.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||To the OP||
I don't think your question was supernatural...it was, however, about the supernatural. I had higher expectations about the thread due to the title, unfortunately, I was dissappointed that it was a simple ghost question.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||No Spoilers....||
But I have watched the entire season already (I know someone at HBO who got me the entire season on DVD), and to those that have any level of disappointment in this season thus far...Episodes 8, 9 and 10 are AWESOME. Definitely worth waiting for!!
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Not sure I can agree...||
Calip is the bench player who was urging CWebb to call a timeout we didn't have.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Myron Rolle?||
Didn't he choose FSU over UM and others because of the accelerated medical program he could enroll in?

Most Michigan moment: appeared in Sports Illustrated prior to the 1989-1990 basketball season (BB preview issue) with Rumeal and my other house mates....OR named my oldest daughter Hailey Victoria...you choose.

When I was single, I came home from work to find two voicemails. One from a cousin saying she wanted to set me up with a friend who would be perfect. The other was from a very cute girl I had met a few months earlier who had been dating a friend of mine. She said she thought she saw me on the subway that day, went over to me to say hi, then realized it wasn't me, but it got her thinking that she should give me a call.
When I spoke to my dad that night, I asked him whom I should call back first.
His advice, "call the girl from the summer back first." Why? "It's obviously a BS story...if she went through that much trouble to find you and come up with a story, that's the one."
He was right, we were married about a year later and have been together for more than 20 years.
BTW, my dad was also right about the subway story being BS...she finally fessed up on our 10th anniversary
|12 weeks 5 days ago||I got similar but different advice||
"Do you really want to go to Dartmouth, Duke or MIT? If you liked Michigan the best, go there and don't look back."
|12 weeks 6 days ago||In-N-Out||
I've had it in LA, Las Vegas and Austin, TX...same quality burger every time, like it should be. I like the customization available at 5 guys (grilled onions, grilled mushrooms, relish, BBQ sauce) but its always a mess.
I feel gross leaving 5 Guys...I feel happy leaving I-N-O

|14 weeks 1 day ago||I love my 911 C4S Cab||
(nothing beats a 4wd convertible for year round enjoyment) but I do think that new Mercedes AMG GT looks like a very nice ride...might have to give that a test drive after the summer is over.
|20 weeks 14 hours ago||My law firm experience||
Wasn't what got me the job, I spent a decade in-house at a big investment bank and then at the largest asset manager responsible for hedge funds and private equity funds.
I did some exciting things during the financial crisis with the Fed and US Treasury at my last job but working for a stand alone hedge fund exposes me to more day to day managment issues which is more engaging.

General counsel for a hedge fund
|24 weeks 5 days ago||Courts could view the NLI as a contract of adhesion, no?||
I mean the terms of the contract are not negotiable at all and there is a clear difference in bargaining power between the two parties.
|24 weeks 5 days ago||Woundn't the likely path be||
for Weber to seek injunctive relief, perhaps a temporay restraining order that would prevent OSU/NCAA from enforcing the LOI?
It's been a long time since I was a litigator, but the damage to Weber seems immediate and irreversable if he is forced to enroll at OSU and made to wait until the process plays out.
|30 weeks 2 days ago||Can I upvote the entire blog?||
As other have said above, this blog has proven to be both an agent for change (bye bye Brandon) as well as a responsible citizen/journalist which performed a vital function of keeping us informed on a timely basis...and not just throwing out random but potentially juicy rumors. Brian and team did a wonderful job of not falling prey to chasing clicks/eyeballs by becoming rumour central.
Love the job you did. My beveled guilt is on the way.

we've seen over the past few years?
Not a great job if he was.
|32 weeks 17 hours ago||So...JH is now Schrodinger's Coach?||
I hope that's an endowed position.
|32 weeks 6 days ago||shouldn't we be looking for experienced hires only?||
In all seriousness, while I guess Herman could develop into a top HC, I want to believe that Michigan doesn't need to train someone to be a HC...and take the risk that he can't do it.
Herman might be Willy E. Coyote Super Genius, but excellence in one or more areas (recruiting, calling plays, etc.) may not translate into the organizational, motivational and leadership qualities that I believe make a great head coach.
I don't need my HC to be/have been a great position coach or coordinator...he needs the best staff possible so that he can delegate play calling and technique training to them if need be.
The HC sets the tone, chooses the direction of the program and gets everyone to march in time. I believe that Michigan needs to pick a candidate who has done that on a consistent basis with continuous success as the result.
That's my guy. I just don't know what his name is, yet.
|33 weeks 1 day ago||I think we all misheard him...||
I think he said "Leaders and best"...
