"there is a great crime."
|4 hours 32 min ago||If you think THAT was bad||
you never saw the Chevy Chase Show.
|4 hours 39 min ago||But what about Bluestar Airlines?||
I hear they have an overfunded pension.
|2 days 9 hours ago||Well crap, I signed on just to reply||
but you did it for me, and stated it as elegantly as I ever could have hoped to. Well done, man.
|2 days 9 hours ago||I had the exact same reaction||
so this must be End Times or something.
|2 days 9 hours ago||Dude, the headline was so hard to miss...||
|2 days 9 hours ago||Well hell, Steve Jobs would probably still be alive||
if he had sought traditional medical intervention instead of trying to treat his own pancreatic cancer with veggie smoothies for a couple of years. That's not an exaggeration. What I'm saying is, even genius, visionary people have weird blind spots on exactly this issue.
|2 days 12 hours ago||That's exactly why I pay my Bear Patrol Tax||
so that stupid bears of all kinds don't come around eating children or giving them diabetes and/or autism.
Also, does anyone want to sell their tiger rock?
|2 days 12 hours ago||I think they're making political commentary||
so we probably don't want to discuss too much, especially since it distracts from the real conspiracy:
Stevie Wonder can see. You're not fooling anyone, Stevie.

|5 days 38 min ago||Finebaum: any of you &*$^#@ call me "Pete" and I'll kill you.||
Harbaugh: Lighten up, Pete.
|5 days 3 hours ago||I raise a glass to the memory of Oosterbaan||
Scene of our IM flag football team's greatest triumphs. We won shirts. We had subs. It was crazy.
|1 week 5 hours ago||If you wanted to tie it into UM a little more||
you could mention one of the boycotters is Alan Branch, but... I'd have probably gone with "there is no way this is going to go well" and avoided posting altogether.
|1 week 4 days ago||I've had at least 3 concussions||
from h.s. football and college rugby. My only advice is... seriously, MGoBlog isn't a good place for this kind of advice unless it's pointing out resources for where to go to get better advice. In this case, if you feel your physician is being dismissive or isn't answering your concerns, you may need to find another one.
For what it's worth, and hopefully it's not much, I recall my symptoms typically lasted a few days.
|1 week 4 days ago||Damnit, I always miss these||
what was it about to begin with? Someone do me a solid and catch me up. I read through the whole thing and I still have no idea what the subject of the OP might have been.

"that's just the Aurora Borealis." - Mark Hollis
|2 weeks 4 hours ago||I'm more than a little impressed||
at how well the driver takes that turn, under the circumstances.
|2 weeks 21 hours ago||I told you this would happen when they allowed dancing||
Baylor existed for 151 years and nothing happened. Then in 1996, they lifted the ban on dancing, and in only 20 years, the whole institution is collapsing!
I told you, dancing is the tool of Lucifer himself!
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I would say keep 'em both off the chopping block||
until we establish that, in addition to being a large human, Faalele can actually play American rules football, which is as yet inconclusive (but there's reason for optimism given the offer).
But at that point, go all in with both. Half measures don't work in this world.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||If we signed nothing but 18-20 offensive linemen||
I'd be perfectly content with the 2018 class. Somewhere out there is a group of 5 guys that can play to Michigan's historic standard. None of the specialists really matter that much until we find those 5.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||The look on Belichek's face after that TD||
was worth the price of admission. Since I'm watching at home, that price was zero, but still.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Just can't do it.||
Can't root for anything positive to happen to Belichek, as much as I'd like to see Goodell's face when he has to hand over the trophy. Have a good game, TB, but hope Ryan lights up the Hoodie.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I know, right?||
That's like getting kicked out of the Tri-Delts for being too rich, bleach-blonde, and slutty.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Actually a pretty good Andy Staples column on Kobe Buffalomeat||
posted yesterday, worth a look: LINK
Here he is standing next to his coach. I'll let you guess which one is him.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||OP title and title of the linked article bury the lede a bit||
because as the body of the article points out, the real issue is the link between CTE and repetitive sub-concussive hits:
|2 weeks 4 days ago||This is great!||
Slightly disappointed because I thought it was going to be a different Good Times soundtrack. Specifically, this one:
|2 weeks 5 days ago||That picture of Samuels||
Is so completely bonkers I am seriously wondering if the kid has ever been checked for an extremely rare mutation similar to people who have a disease called Emery-Dreifuss. People who have it (the anabolic pathway version) basically have no fat on their bodies, and as a result some look just like "comic book heroes" for their exagerrated musculature. There are major downsides as you'd expect, but not the sort you'd catch in routine physicals. People who actually have the muscular dystrophy variant (the catabolic pathway version) are just the opposite-- basically skeletal.
There is an amazing story about this on This American Life if anyone is interested, the podcast was called "Something Only I Can See" about a woman with a wasting disease who looked at an olympic athlete with that "comic book" appearance and amazingly saw what no world expert had figured out-- that they had a slightly different version of the same disease. Here's a pic of the athlete, a Canadian Olympic sprinter named Priscilla Lopes-Schliep, and no, she's not on PEDs (because of her appearance she was one of the most heavily tested athletes you'll ever find):
ProPublica originally reported the story (LINK) and if you don't listen to the podcast, seriously, read the story. It's unbelievable.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Watched it on YouTube||
and while I'm glad they did it, I thought last year's was much more fun. Hill is a more intimate setting and felt like more noise-- most of the cheering today seemed to disappear up into the Crisler rafters. Holt, Shanahan, and McShay from last year gave it much more of a "draft" feel that was cool and overall, both more analytic gravitas and at the same time more like a party.
Hope they consider going back to the 1st format with the addition of the parents from today.
|3 weeks 7 hours ago||You people are just reflexively critical||
Personally, that was pretty good for CGI. Not as good as Tarkin in Rogue One, but passable as a human if you weren't looking closely. I give it a B+.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I'm not on the twitters||
but if Brian and staff ever wrote a political or social blog on the side, I'd be all over it. Brian in particular is a superb writer with a distinctive voice, and good writing is subject-matter agnostic.
My favorite writer growing up was Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and if GGM ever wrote a short story that was literally about grass growing on a lawn (which you should get off of, by the way), it would be amazing.
If Brian, Seth, and Ace wanted to start blogging about politics, movies, cooking, or My Little Pony, I'm 100% sure I'd love reading it. Would it be better on a separate blog? Yeah, probably, but whatever.
All that said, Draftageddon still sucks.
