Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."

|2 weeks 4 days ago||International Border||
I know next to nothing about boating, but my biggest concern would be not doing anything to run afoul of US or Canadian Border Patrol. Make sure you research that aspect and make the relevant "check-ins" and what have you, because illegal crossings can entail several thousand dollars in fines, not to mention impoundment of your boat and a (hopefully) brief detainment in whatever processing facility they take you to.

Yeah, that's the only reason I knew it.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||MLB vs NFL||
I'm not even much of a baseball fan, and I agree with you totally. MLB is way easier on your body, and usually pays better to boot. Only downside is the long season.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah, man||
I don't even follow recruiting and that was still my first thought.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||1/2 Empty||
The "half empty" thing isn't unique to the NBA though.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah - he said||
Yeah - he said "mid-level".
|17 weeks 3 days ago||Late Amaker years||
I was there too, it was weird.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||Seinfeld||
I remember not loving the Seinfeld finale at the time, but in retrospect it seems pretty appropriate. They didn't really care about giving people what they wanted.
|18 weeks 4 days ago||Just as those not based on||
Just as those not based on equations are inherently flawed for different reasons. By using a static, transparent equation, formulae like KenPom's at least give us a consistent starting point for scrutiny and debate, as opposed to human polls or "proprietary" ones like BPI.
|18 weeks 5 days ago||I don't really love Oberon||
I don't really love Oberon either, but I'm definitely not a Whitsun fan. It's been a while, but I remember it having the mouthfeel of like a peppered Bud light. Which probably only makes sense in my head.

People eat dinner at Whole Foods?
|18 weeks 5 days ago||Oberon Availability||
No, it's seasonal in Michigan, and in most places I think, though I know Florida also gets it year-round.
|19 weeks 3 days ago||Wichita State Geography||
It's not just the potential Louisville matchup that screws Wichita geographically.
Let's assume the high-ish seeds win out in the Midwest. EVERY SINGLE ONE of those teams is closer to the round site than Wichita St. To wit:
Driving time to St Louis
1 - Wichita: 6:22
8 - Kentucky: 5:01
9 - Kansas St: 5:24
Driving time to Indy
1 - Wichita: 9:53
4 - Louisville: 1:43
5 - St. Louis: 3:43
2 - Mich: 4:04
3 - Duke: 9:16
Now obviously some of this is just Wichita being geographically somewhat isolated (and a bit unlucky that there's no Kansas City site this year). And a few of them (Duke, KSU) are obviously not significant differences. But man, it's not like there aren't some teams hanging around other regions that couldn't have been swapped to help out Wichita (in particular swapping out Kentucky would have been nice.)

|22 weeks 3 days ago||Throwbacks||
I'm honestly not a huge fan of them but I appreciate that they're legit throwbacks and not "throwbacks", so I'd be cool with it. Wish teams did it more often, us included.
|22 weeks 3 days ago||Very helpful||
Yeah, I'm sure that's what he meant.
|24 weeks 1 day ago||5 + 3 - 1 = 6?||
Maybe there are like 7m people who have both.
|25 weeks 11 hours ago||Lineage||
You don't expect to see a Lineage avatar on a sports blog - maybe we should do these intstrumental hip-hop/jazz/etc threads more often.
|25 weeks 3 days ago||Antonio Jeremiah||
"Jeremiah was nothing more than a bit player who suffered a knee injury going into his final season. A fitting end to a failed tenure."
Seems a little mean-spirited, no?

That's a good price. The very cheapest you'll see is $15.99, but it's usually in the $17-19 range, and I've seen it as high as $22.
|28 weeks 16 hours ago||You lucky bastard. I only||
You lucky bastard. I only managed to get my hands on one bottle of BCBW, and even that was through a trade.
|28 weeks 1 day ago||Schedule sets up nicely?||
Seriously? Not worried about @ND, @MSU, @OSU?
|29 weeks 1 day ago||No no no, they're the ones||
No no no, they're the ones that don't wear helmets at all, just golden Christmas ornaments with face masks attached.
|31 weeks 5 days ago||They Do||
I think they call them shootouts.
|38 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah, Michigan Basketball was||
Yeah, Michigan Basketball was TERRIBLE in the early 90s. I mean, they don't have a single banner in the rafters at
|46 weeks 5 days ago||Betteridge's Law||
Relevant here, I think.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Harbaugh||
Didn't Harbaugh pretty much answer this question?
|1 year 27 weeks ago||I would argue he hasn't been||
I would argue he hasn't been the best MLB in the league for a number of years, but your point is still basically true, and there's no way you can keep a guy that dominant out of the Hall.

Well in that case...how about some Final Four tickets?
