Two top schools. Guy can't lose.
|5 days 13 hours ago||I live a few blocks from||
I live a few blocks from Haight/Ashbury, and I went to use an ATM on Haight Street one afternoon a few years back, and there were dozens of people out on the streets smoking in public. Duders blazing in public is a common enough sight around here, but there were so many people out smoking from all walks of life, and were making such a show of it, I had to ask a guy what was going on. He was like, "four twenty dude," and I had no idea what he was talking about. How did I attend Hash Bash every year from 1997 to 2000 (and maybe even some random year from 2002 to 2004) and not know that?

Also the Wings are going to drop the puck in an hour, up 1-0 on Tampa, eh.

Fair enough. But the foody bits of Berkeley are discontinuous from the college parts. There are some right awful places on campus.

If it's not already illegal to feed Kate Upton Taco Bell it should be.

I think Dookie and Wisconsin. Then Devils. Tyus Jones is the best pure PG in the Final 4.

|3 weeks 2 days ago||Yeah, that or any one of Troy||
Yeah, that or any one of Troy Smith's second-half third down scrambles in the '05 Game. We get him one of those times, Ohio punts, Michigan wins.

Beyond 20 years. His main accomplishments in the relevant time period are coking and studio work.

Woodson? Heisman. Rose Bowl. National Title. NFL hall of fame shoo-in. Super Bowl. Defensive MVP.

Thought you all were talking about that creepy dude from the woods in the first season of True Detective.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||I've seen some of those types||
I've seen some of those types (i.e., not sure why they went to law school) become pretty good lawyers. Practicising law is a lot more fun, dynamic, and people-oriented than law school.
That being said, the combination of law school becoming more expensive and the job market shrinking has made for a scenario where it's not a good idea to stick around to find out if you may be one of those people. The job market has seen permanent, structural changes from the days Latham and Watkins had 200 summer associates.

Well, I think the issue is that everything was better in the middle 1990s if you are a man of a certain age. Back then, for example, I could ball.

It's been in LA for a few weeks. Drank half a case of it a couple weeks ago.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Interesting. Oberon used to||
Interesting. Oberon used to go by Solsun until sued by Mexican producer Sol. Maybe Bell is paying it forward?

Uh, no, I always only drive Fords, and, uh, well yeah.

92-70. Early playoff exit.

Replace "lottery" for "playoff," and pretty much, yeah.
They are, taken on the whole, a lot better than other college teams. Duke's backcourt is about as good, perhaps better, but UK is deeper and bigger. I would take Boston, Miami, or Indiana over UK's team (it's a non-starter to compare UK to the West fringe playoff teams). Those are teams full of former college prospects (Sullinger, David West, Deng, Olynyk) and established pros (Stuckey, Hibbert, Wade, Bosh, Isiah Thomas). The difference is that the NBA guys have had years to develop their games. Even if you go down to Charlotte, I am going with the NBA team. Kidd-Gilchrist was the No. 2 guy in the '12 draft, and he is not a star yet; he has a few years on the Harrisons, and I predict he would own the Harrisons and Booker.

The one thing California cuisine will never have over Cracker Barrel.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Yes I think it had some||
Yes I think it had some racial bias suits about ten years ago as well. I am tempted to make an off color joke using the term cracker, but this is a public forum...
|5 weeks 4 days ago||It's a strained analogy||
It's a strained analogy Rosenberg makes to Hernandez, for sure, but Rosenberg is absolutely correct about the long-term health risks of playing NFL football. The recent settlement with brain-damaged former players means the League can pretty much continue to crank out tens of millions of dollars in profit for billionaire owners, with only the puniest of compensation to the men who ravaged themselves so that others may be enriched and entertained.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Money is on Duke. KU reminds||
Money is on Duke. KU reminds me of the '91 Runnin Rebs. I think Tyus Jones has more upside than the Harrisons. Devils in an upset. (Yes, I still dislike Duke, the program, but respect this crew they have as they are ballers.)
|6 weeks 5 hours ago||Sure, yeah, we had exactly||
Sure, yeah, we had exactly the type of year we can let a guy like him go, and just think, it sure is good to be a real prestigious school and shit, and just let guys who can ball a little bit go because we can replace them with the likes of any moron with a pulse, who can put on a Michigan uniform. Makes sense. Go Blue. Real fucking sensible. And shit.

Mediocre Russian River pinot. Ran out of Oberon like at five PM.
|6 weeks 5 hours ago||Fucking asshole was wrong||
Fucking asshole was wrong about the Fab Five too. I find it amazing that, in America, you can be good at something, thirty years ago, and then have some type of goddamned fucking authority to tell kids how to play a game that any idiot can figure out, well after you were actually relevant.

Smotty is tearing it up. Money from 3 and he takes a big charge. Michigan could have used that the last two years...
Telling that he started on Michigan's B1G championshp team, and comes off the bench for the Terps. This is a deep squad.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Well I can now go back to||
Well I can now go back to totally ignoring the NFL like I did for 30 years before JH took the Niners job. My wife will like this.
