Bass of nsync fame was supposed to go to the ISS on a Soyuz 15 years ago. The price tag then was $20M. I imagine the price has gone up due to inflation and they don't have the advantage of mass production.

he explained that he read the envelope and it said "best actress, Emma Stone," so he showed it to Faye to let her read the wrong award. I'm sorry, he's a dumbass.

Maybe they shouldn't let two senile actors announce the best picture

Home court advantage matters. Yes, it was a great win over Purdue, but let's not discount the advantage one has of playing in one's own gym.

You are putting profit before the student athlete. Taking advantage of the powerless for institutional gain is reprehensible.

Regarding your statement about "your system," I'd like to take credit for it, but I think Adam Smith would be offended.

BTW, the NFL is far from a free market economy.
|3 days 18 hours ago||Player compensation proposal||
Free market economics? School offers athlete a job with a salary. Athlete either accepts or rejects. 5-star recruits are going to make more money, just like graduates of top universities can make more coming out of school than graduates of community colleges or high schools.
This works for McDonald's employees and Starbucks employees and rocket scientists. Why shouldn't it work for college athletes?

this is a giant post about Sam Darmold

Red bean popsicles and taro smoothies are really good

I like mustard on salmon, but I haven't tried it on any other fish
|4 days 7 hours ago||When I was a kid...||
I notice there are a lot of peanut butter recipes here. But what do you do when you run out of peanut butter? I used to make jelly and mustard sandwiches. My family was probably poor when I was a kid.

If they are the 1 seed, they are going to be in the West Regional, meaning a cross-country trip for Michigan possibly to Sacramento. I'd rather play a 2 seed that gets shipped out of their region into something closer to Ann Arbor. They are 'neutral' site games, but travel and fan support can make a difference.

our pastor when I was there was the chaplain for the spartan football team. He being Scottish and a spartan fan, we had the very unfortunate fate of being nicknamed the "Tartans." Our mascot was a bagpipe covered in tartan cloth. It was awful.

or so I learned during elementary school at Saint Thomas Aquinas. Yep, ST3 went to STA.

Anyone else notice that Zak Irvin plays his better games against teams wearing red? I think this is a good omen for our season ender at Nebraska. Check this out (opponent, pts scored):
He had a little blip against OSU and @ Indiana, but those teams wear scarlett and crimson, not red.

unless Gettys and Doorson decide to eat half our team. Those are some big boys.
|5 days 16 hours ago||travel time||
I just read an IEEE Spectrum article about space travel. The article states that "Tiny spacecraft, each integrated on a chip and accelerated by laser light" could travel at 0.2 times the speed of light. We could reach that other solar system in 200 years. It would take another 40 for information to get back to us. None of us would be alive, but our great-great-great-great-great-grandchildren would appreciate our forethought or curse us for alerting our solar enemies to our existence.
|5 days 16 hours ago||Juice parole||
Sports Illustrated did a story about it:
Nevada has this point system for potential parolees. SI broke it down and showed he will likely get paroled, unless the parole board ignores their point system because he, you know, murdered two people in cold blood.
|5 days 17 hours ago||Hoke/Crean||
Hoke is definitely Dorfman-esque.
Crean could be either Dorf-on-golf (see above) or Dorfman. Or just dorky.
|6 days 9 hours ago||Rob Voskuil||
Yeah, good ol' Rob Voskuil. I saw James play hoops at the IM building. He was clearly a division 1 athlete. Jason Bossard was also playing in that game. I think I could have taken Bossard. j/k

is going to destroy us inside. I hope we have a hot shooting night and can score with them.
|6 days 13 hours ago||Irvin's defense||
I watched him play defense during the first half of the Minnesota game. This amounted to standing in the corner guarding Minnesota's 5th option, and failing to box out. Duncan can do that just as well as Irvin. I think Ace is right that his defense is better than Duncan's, but he had a real bad night against Minnesota if defense includes defensive rebounding, which it does.
|6 days 16 hours ago||Complaints||
I think folks will keep complaining about the offensive line, John Beilein's recruiting, and Mark Donnal.

I saw Kupchak eating lunch once at an El Pollo Loco. Seeing that guy try to squeeze into a booth reminded me of this:

Sounds just like those white collar comments Maverick Morgan made. The dipshit doesn't fall far from the tree.
|1 week 1 day ago||Fouls||
Our game-by-game foul totals are found on the last page of this:
28 fouls against us is 6 more than any other game this season. Yes, this game went to OT and we were playing from behind, but we weren't fouling extensively to lengthen the game. We just got hosed by these refs. When something so uncharacteristic happens, one has to wonder what's going on.
