It's a matter of degrees. Saban does this approximately as often as the rest of the SEC combined. This is the first for Harbaugh at Michigan. One incident does not a trend make.
|4 days 8 hours ago||my favorite Steven Wright line||
goes something like this, "I once put instant coffee in the microwave and went back in time."

He told someone to eff off and he was banned as a result. It was most likely the straw that broke the camel's back, as he was becoming increasingly insufferable to many on this site.
|1 week 1 day ago||Shoeless Joe for the HoF||
Like I said, he belongs in the hall, and no, he didn't throw the world series.
|1 week 1 day ago||HoF||
Shoeless Joe should get in before any of the questionable choices (Rose, Bonds, A-Rod, etc.)
|1 week 1 day ago||but which House?||
Would he be Dytarious Targaryen or Dytarious Lannister? Arguments could be made for both.
I know a lady named Mary Montes, which rhymes with Vira Montes so he's my favorite for now. Plus, the headband.
|1 week 3 days ago||My starter jacket story||
My sixth and seventh grade basketball coach was a real hard-ass. Think purple-faced Bryan Kelly, at all times. I heard he was a middle linebacker for the Denver Broncos before he started coaching us. Back in the early 80's, I guess it was just expected that youth sports were to be coached by insane men trying to relive their youth, but I digress. Slowly, over the course of two seasons he whittled our roster down from 15 players to 7. At our final game of the season, he presents the remaining players with personalized Starter jackets for us to wear during pre-game warm-ups. We wore those jackets for the rest of the school year as a sign of pride, I guess that we were too stupid to quit taking verbal abuse from an overbearing jerk, but hey, we looked good in those jackets.

Let's hire these guys:
Or maybe the problem is, we already did.
|2 weeks 6 hours ago||The headband||
Does he play for the Norco Adidases? He's got more adidas on him than Michigan does. I know it's bad form to comment that a recruit looks too young, so it must be a compliment to say he looks like he's 35 years old in that photo. And that name! This may be my favorite commit so far.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||What I'm going to do||
I'm going to find a nice spot on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, sit down, cross my legs, close my eyes and meditate. Then, I'm going to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony.
Either that or enjoy New Jersey's finest onion rings.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||A t-shirt just for me||
Satellites, M Football and MGoBlog (although those last two may be redundant) consume most of my waking hours. I'm headed to the MGoStore.
I don't even care that I'll have to explain this shirt to everyone I meet.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||ABC? BTN?||
When do we get our first ESPN game where I get to hear Beth Mowins say, "JAYKE ROO-DOCK" over and over?
|2 weeks 4 days ago||plus 1||
for using "nonplussed." It's my second favorite word after, "penultimate."
|3 weeks 1 day ago||this season||
I'll admit there were several episodes this season where I had a hard time staying awake. I'm not sure if that's a reflection on the show, or just that I was watching late at night when I should have been sleeping. However, the last two episodes have been incredible.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Dorne||
The point of Dorne is that the Lannisters are consolidating power in the south to battle Stannis in the north, meanwhile that Targaryen gal is coming with dragons and the white walkers are amassing in the north. It's Tolkienesque five armies stuff*, except there will be 4 armies and Stannis will be squeezed in the middle.
*Unless the Iron Born re-enter the picture in season 6, thereby giving us five armies.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||The world||
Our world is also like that, or at least it used to be. Not to bring in religion, but Yahweh commanded Abraham to sacrifice his son (only to have an Angel spare the child) and Jesus died a horrible death on a cross to redeem the world. It's biblical. These stories have been told for millenium - the ultimate sacrifice - and yet, I will agree that there was something about the little girl's cries for help that made this so much more heartbreaking. I was ready to be done with the show, and then they had an absolutely awesome final 15 minutes. If you judge a show by what it does to you - the emotional responses you have to a silly TV show, then yeah, I'm ready to move this show into top 5 of all-time territory.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Something About Mary||
Don't get me wrong, I thought it was a funny movie. It was more about the circumstances. We arrived late, so we had to sit in the very front row, and my wife (girlfriend at the time,) hearing it was a funny movie, thought it would be fun to bring HER MOTHER!!!
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Homicide||
How could I have forgotten that show. It was brilliant. Andre Braugher! I now have a top 8.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||True Detective||
The first season was fantastic. I want to see if it has staying power before putting it in the top 5. It could have been just the product of incredible chemistry between Harrelson and that car commercial guy. "I've been driving a Lincoln since long before anybody paid me to drive one. Didn't do it to make a statement. I just liked it."
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Michael Warren||
he played Bobby Hill, partnered with Andy Renko. That show had some incredible characters. Definitely top 5. For me, it's:
2. The O.C.
3. Hill Street Blues
4. Friday Night Lights
5. Mad Men
5. NYPD Blue (Sipowicz!)
5. Breaking Bad
Yeah, I have a three way tie for fifth so I can mention 7 shows.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Nick VanHoose||
In Steele's defense, Nick VanHoose has a really cool name.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||to be honest||
I've never met someone named Bordon before, male or female.
Regarding Caitlyn, I thought for sure she would spell that with a "K" to fit in with the rest of that group. Probably just another subtle dig at Kris Jenner.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||not really||
to me, it makes him/her sound like he/she has a command of the English language and knows the meanings of words like, "commit."
|4 weeks 6 hours ago||John Oliver||
Does this mean he has to drink a Bud Light with Lime? I was only partly paying attention to that segment so I don't recall the exact bet he made. Not quite the same as eating a lemon, but it will do.

Brian is Seth.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||"Break the wheel"||
I thought the only person who could break the wheel was Rand Al'Thor. Oh, sorry, wrong epic fantasy series...
|4 weeks 1 day ago||TV quality||
I saw an interview with Mike Judge and Alec Berg about their show Silicon Valley. Judge at first was almost apologetic for taking a whole year to produce 10 half hour TV shows, but then he said it was like making 3 movies a year. From that perspective, you can see why the quality has improved so dramatically in many instances.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Mowins||
with all the softball coverage this weekend, I think I OD'd on Beth Mowins. I've never heard a play-by-play announcer be so excited by a defense getting the lead runner out before. She was working in a 3 woman booth, yet she talked the entire time.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Pippen||
was a headcase who benefitted immensely from being on the same team as MJ. Top 5 player of what? All-time? His era? His conference? His team?
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Jordan / Harden||
Jordan would rip out Harden's heart and eat it with a nice chianti, or something. Harden looked like he was stoned in Game 5 and played like it, 13 turnovers. I can just see him trying that "draw a foul" stuff on Jordan and Jordan picking his pocket and going the other way. Harden is an out of control chucker who has benefitted from the superstar treatment and the new foul rules.
No one today could stop Kareem's skyhook, and no one today has that weapon.
