I prefer Greg Skrepenak at tackle, but other than that, I have no qualms with this list

Peters = 1.5 X Al Bundy. If I remember correctly, Al scored 4 TDs in a game for Polk High.
|1 day 4 hours ago||Driving through Oklahoma||
I stopped at a Chinese buffet in Oklahoma that was attached to a gas station. We took one look at the food (or lack thereof) and turned around immediately. I kind of take it for granted that I can get Chinese food anywhere I want. Oklahoma is the exception.

I have to vote for Utah. There is a stretch of highway that goes about 100 miles and there is only 1 off-ramp exit to a private road. It's a beautiful state, just a shame no one lives there. (Salt Lake City excepted of course.)
|1 day 4 hours ago||Talking on the down-low||
That's what I first thought of, but then I realized the kids can't really still talk like that these days.

BANG! I just saw him on a shark tank rerun last night. DDP Yoga has done amazing things for DDP's flexibility. But the dude looks every one of his 57 years old. Pro wrestling is a tough business.

Sounds like someone has never driven through Nebraska. At least South Dakota has hills and Mount Rushmore. Nebraska has corn. Nebraska is like Iowa sans people.
|2 days 7 min ago||Signing day = Black Friday||
Black Friday is the noted day after Thanksgiving when retailers who have been losing money all year, suddenly show a profit due to all of the holiday shopping. With all of the potential eyeballs on the site today, it shoud be very profitable in terms of ad revenue. I followed the proceedings on Twitter instead of MGoBlog. Something's not right about that.

A meta policeman or a grammar nazi? Just wondering, since I happen to be both.

One or both of those guys may have to be four year starters after redshirting. Look at the '16 signing day depth chart on the offensive line. I wish we had signed more big bodies this year.

My favorite is still the first one I saw with Rick Santorum. I know there's a no politics rule on this blog, but after his performance at the Iowa caucus last night, I don't think he qualifies as a politician anymore.

Didn't he make a movie with Carlos Spicyweiner?

Is that short for, "Offensive Guard, anonymous nobody" or is that a real person?

it's because Brian has a crush on Grant Newsome

Any little step stool (pun intended) will work.
|4 days 28 min ago||2-3 vs 1-3-1||
I've noticed Beilein going to the 2-3 when he has Walton/MAAR/Dawkins/Irvin/Donnal in the game. There's a certain symmetry to that unit that lends itself to the 2-3 (2 regular sized guards, two wing sized wings, and a big.) When Duncan is in the game, he's using the 1-3-1 with Duncan's length up top.
|4 days 3 hours ago||Brady and Gisele||
secretly had twins 17 years ago. Tom Jr. has been hidden away, practicing his throwing in the Himalayas with Sidd Finch and Gisele Jr. is set to be the head cheerleader.
|5 days 4 hours ago||Donnal||
At the beginning of the season, I would have give a huge edge, a ">>>" if you will, to Costello and Schilling over Doyle and Donnal. Now? I might give a slight edge to Donnal and Doyle. I watched both recent M games yesterday (Rutgers and PSU) and Doyle was playing better. Maybe that's because of the opposition, or maybe he is coming out of his funk. The next couple games will tell.

Is that a, "Fiddler on the Roof" themed bar?

Let's see if some of my bad breakups can compare to that...
I was handcuffed to the bed.. In my underwear, (Sighs) where I remained..
She was attractive.. She was, also, infact, a Nazi..
The water.. that I had been swiming in was.. very cold. And, when I dropped the towel, there was.. significant shrinkage..
Her parents were looking at me.. So, there I was, with a marble rye hanging from the end of a fishing pole..
In closing, these stories have not been embellished, because - they need no embellishment. They are simply, horrifyingly, the story of my life as a short, stocky, slow witted bald man. Thank you. Oh, also.. my fiance died from licking toxic envelopes that I picked out.

It's glorious. One might even say, A-maize-ing.

one of my favorite players, welcome aboard to Daniel.

I sense this Hello post was written in 5 minute bursts between contractions...

Maybe a brontosaurus had a cammoson for dinner (that would be the prehistoric version of the turducken.)
|1 week 2 days ago||Rush||
Rush is like the Trent Dilfer-led Super Bowl winning Baltimore Ravens team, with Geddy Lee's vocals being the equivalent of Dilfer at QB. The other pieces of the Ravens team were so good (especially the defense) that all Dilfer had to do was not screw up. The musicianship, for lack of a better word, of Peart on drums (greatest technical drummer) Lifeson on lead guitar and Geddy on bass/synth is unmatched. When you hear a Rush song, you instantly know that's a Rush song. They had a style all their own that they copied from Zeppelin and others, but they put their Canadian-spin on it and made it truly unique. And they weren't afraid of reinventing themselves, several times over.
|1 week 2 days ago||Living Colour||
As I alluded to, my brother is a big fan. His friend knows somebody who knows somebody who knows the bassist in Living Colour. My brother's friend asked if he could get a private lesson from the bassist. This was last year, I think. The guy was like, this is an interesting request, but sure. Neither person wants to start talking about the cost of the lesson, until finally Jay offers $300 (I think?) He's more than happy to take that for an hour of jamming with a fan. So they set up the lesson when LC is in town and the guy says, are you going to the show tonight? Here's backstage passes for you and your friends. (My brother and a couple other guys watched the lesson on the tour bus.) My brother says, paraphrasing, do you remember us, we followed you all around the mid-west in the early 90's.

I saw them in concert at Pine Knob. The lead singer is one unique individual.
