|1 week 1 day ago||1991 Dodge Daytona||
It cost $500. It was a stick shift and the previous owner had let someone drive it who didn't know how to drive a stick, so first gear was destroyed. The other four gears worked fine, though, and the car ran very reliably for four years (until I ran a stop sign and got t-boned by a Buick SUV).
Being an old two-door, the doors sagged terribly. Opening them required a lot of effort pulling them up before they'd swing out. I got used to it, but once when I took it in for service I ended up getting a call from the frustrated mechanic who couldn't get the door open. When I told him he had to lift it pretty hard, he said he'd pulled the tires off the ground and it still wouldn't open. Fortunately, he did get it open eventually.
I really liked that car.

for president. This is fantastic.

Also, every once in a while someone tries to sound smart by saying "timesout" instead of "timeouts." Can we ban that as well?

is funnier from the ha ha look at their faces perspective, but as a sports photo, the second is so much better.

Keep doing them forever and ever.

Can I have your autograph?

1: That's WAY WAY WAY over the line, and
2: Shouldn't it be "than"? The shirt conveys an entirely different message than it intends...

I think you said it better, too. Adults need to be adults.
|3 years 6 weeks ago||That's sad.||
There should be school leadership on site to shut that down immediately. On multiple occasions during local high school athletic events in my town I've seen administrators immediately step in and shut down insulting chants. (They've never been insulting to the degree of those in the OP, but they still cross the line.) The more I see, though, the more I get the impression that's not the norm. That's kind of sad. High school kids are going to say and do dumb things -- there ought to be leadership there to let them know when they cross the line.
|3 years 9 weeks ago||I tried so hard to make||
the UP work somehow, but I don't have that kind of skill. I like the UP and wanted to fit it in, but that'll have to left to someone more graphic designy than I. Having the UP just sitting there all blue while the Mitten had wings just made the UP look sad.

they're pretty much the same thing.
Anyway: I spend most of my time on twitter now. I find that's easier to keep up with.

I still have it, but I find the winged mitten gets a better response.

I did stop posting when the readership and commentership exploded. It just got to be too much.

really got good this year. Made huge improvements in his ability to find a hole and hit it hard. I'm already looking forward to seeing him on the field next fall.
(He pulled away for a touchdown on that run.)

what you'd do with the concept, because I know it'd be astounding. But I know that's not going to happen.

if it weren't for the advertising on the back.

Been there, done that. Not for Michigan sports -- I'm not cool enough to photograph M events -- but yeah, it's hard to stop being a sports fan. I've gotten a little bit better about it over the past few years, but not THAT much better.
