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

is only a compliment when referring to actual cheese.
|1 day 9 hours ago||Best hitter||
Their best hitter might be the Norris/Jaso platoon, or Brandon Moss (his OPS is 75 points higher than Cespedes.) Donaldson's OPS is 30 points higher than Cespedes. I get it that he's the biggest name, but by OWAR he's their 6th best hitter.

I just picked up Jumbo Diaz in my fantasy league (we track Holds) because he's Jumbo Diaz. He's also a career minor leaguer who dropped 70 pounds to get down to 270 and now he's got a sub 1 WHIP, ~1 ERA, 1K/IP. Seriously, Dombrowski, go get us Jumbo Diaz.

They are only 2.5 games up on my Halos. If they get caught by Anaheim, they are looking at potentially a 1-game wild card play-in against King Felix. Winning the West is extremely important to Oakland or Anaheim if Seattle is able to move ahead of Toronto.

I was driving home last night, realized we're <5 weeks from the start of the season and started singing the Victors.

Are we scouring the country for an Olajuwan Sampson for the class of '17? I mean, the only way his name is any better is if it were Robinson Dunkin.

|1 week 5 hours ago||"hype" video||
That's an awful hype video. I wasn't the least bit perturbed watching that.
|1 week 1 day ago||Green||
Green weighed 270 pounds in high school. At this rate, there'll be nothing left of him by the time he graduates.
I look at that O-line graph and just hope Miller's a true 299 and has improved over the summer. A little experience along the line would be nice. But if Kugler wins the job, so be it.

|1 week 2 days ago||Hype||
I looked up the word "hype" in the dictionary just to be sure I wasn't missing something. The first definition is, "to stimulate, excite or agitate." The music didn't really stimulate or excite me. Some of the clips were good, but there were too many negatives to get excited about the coming season (OSU followed by the PSU and MSU games.) Next I looked up agitate. One of it's definitions is "perturb." So in the sense that this video greatly perturbed me, I'm willing to concede that it's one solid hype video.
|1 week 2 days ago||Where was the hype?||
As I was watching it, I thought, well, skip the first minute and maybe it'll be pretty good. Then it was, skip the first two minutes, then Billy Bob and Rocky started talking and I figured you could skip the first three minutes. Basically, what that video shows is that Smith and Green each had one good run last year. I give that video a thumbs down.
|1 week 2 days ago||My list||
I took most of my road trips when the B1G 10 still had, you know, ten teams. I never got to Evanston for a game, but saw the rest. From best to worst, I'd rank them thusly:
1. Madison, made that trip four times. Their band is great and the students really get into the games. The city is really nice to walk around.
2. Indiana. That was always a guaranteed win. Sort of a low-stress, relaxing weekend trip. You get to chill out and watch Michigan win a football game. What's not to like?
3. Iowa. Flew there in a four-seater, and took a photo with their mascot. Cool dude.
(would slot Notre Dame in here.)
4. Minnesota. I went when they were playing outside, a couple stadiums ago. I had my first Whopper on a trip to Minnesota. It's really cold there, though, and the drive takes forever.
5. Purdue. Just really dirty, what with all that train smoke and proximity to Gary, Indiana.
6. Illinois. The whole place smells like shit, and you have to deal with them thinking we're rivals.
7. MSU. I grew up in East Lansing, so reading the MGoBloggers bash my former hometown was tough to take, but they are right.
8. Ohio State. I'll admit, that's a scary trip. You are basically on edge the whole time wondering which psychopath is going to notice your Michigan items and go full metal jacket on you.

just putting "/s" at the end of a stupid comment shouldn't excuse it. It wasn't sarcastic, it was just stupid. Yeah, there are idiots out there that make ridiculous comments, but we don't need to be reminded of that with a "/s" comment.

First, find a cowbell. Second, get a drumstick. Third, bang that cowbell for 10 hours a day.
Fourth, profit, I guess?

is a walk-on. I'm not sure how much recruiting was done there. If a player with ability wants to play for your program and pay his way to do so, I think you give him a chance. If he messes up once, you punish him accordingly and watch him closely after that.

I don't own any pets, but I did have numerous conversations the day after July 4th about how irritated people's pets get by fireworks. That's right, Dave Brandon hates dogs.

To be fair, he was completely covered in stick-um. I don't think he had a choice but to catch the ball. Same goes for my favorite Raider of all time, Lester Hayes.
