Dammit! Now I'm sad all over again! Stupid ass fracking NC double dumb-asses!

I'm the guy who never played soccer, can't claim to know much about strategy regarding the game but I love watching it. Especially The World Cup. So exciting! Bucket list: Going to a World Cup.

I disagree. They don't have to wait until the clock starts ticking for their pick to listen to trade offers. They had been discussing trades for weeks now, testing the waters. Even during the draft before their pick they could discuss trades. If they'd waited another few minutes would something better had come up? Maybe, but far from guaranteed. Nothing was viable. I'm not sure how you can say they didn't try to trade down. Offers were discussed, they didn't like any of them so by the time it was their turn to pick, they made their selection.

I have to poop. I just had chocolate chip cookies and milk and it's 9:50am in Phoenix. The wifearoni has a English teachers only pool party/get drunk fest. So it'll be my son, daugther and me all alone watching Spiderman tonight. I want to take my boy to his first full-length feature film at the theatre THE AMAZING SPIDER MAN 2! He's 3 so it should be ok. Our kid's faux-Grandfather, bio family lives in Michigan and Texas, is taking Miles and a friend to Castle and Coasters (a mini theme park/arcade place) on Saturday and having a sleep over that night, so the wife and I will be alone with the 1 year old, who'll be sleep by 8, so we'll have a long, looooong night of deep, passionate, wet, juicy, warm sleep.

If they both went to Phoenix I'd spend money to see them play (living in Phoenix) occasionally and watch the Suns on TV plenty. That'd be weird initially b/c I kind of can't stand Suns fans.

Brandon hashtags everything. Hilarious! I'm surprised he doesn't speak completely in hashtags.

Born and raised in Pontiac, and the way the City Council treated the sale of the Silverdome was completely moronic and selfish. The had better offers years ago, but held off because they wanted more money for themselves. Eventually selling the humongous Silverdome + the land for the cost of a large house in a nice neighborhood. An example of why my city is craptastic now, the city was run by selfish morons for decades.
I remember game days at the Silverdome. I grew up across the street on Maurer, which is parallel to Featherstone. My pops was a firefighter so he had to work the games and on a few occassions he took me with him. I recall standing in the tunnel as the Lions walked out and seeing Thee Barry Sanders walk down the tunnel then seeing Jason Hanson being taller than him. I think I was about 10, so it was hilarious. I think the Lions lost to the Vikings and Barry Sanders had about 200 yards rushing or so.

I grew up in Pontiac, too. Lived right across the street from the Silverdome, on Maurer, directly parallel to Featherstone.

I had to upgrade my DirecTV package so I have the NBCSN. Sheesh. But, I gotta watch the Wings in the playoffs. Besides it was only 8 dollars extra
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Why? The quality of the game||
Why? The quality of the game has not changed in the past 10 seasons since they instituted the 1 year out of high school rule. Forcing kids to stay another year will not make any difference. Especially when you consider who is being replaced by the young men who will be drafted who have the "He Has Potential" tag on them. Those young men will be replacing aging veterans who are trying to get a few more years of earnings before retiring. I remember reading a comment from the NBAPA from years ago stating that their job is not to protect future employees but current ones. So, for the most part, we'll be seeing these aging veterans who play 5 minutes per game out of every six games instead of that super athletic young guy who can't develop a jump shot. I know I'm being extreme, there are many in-betweens, but I just can't stand the "quality of the game" argument.
Also, remember when Darko was drafted? He wasn't old enough so the NBA reduced the age limit to allow him to be drafted. There are other European players, IIRC the African-Greek kid that plays for Milwaukee is also very young. Giannis Antetokounmpo was 18 when he was drafted. The hypocrisy is annoying. What a bunch of crap. 1 year or 2 years out of high school for American (overwhelmingly black) players to play in the NBA but European players, b/c they can play professionally at 14 or whatever, are allowed into the NBA at 18.

Yeah but the risk is inherent to the situation of drafting, not just because the players are young. There are 4 year college players who bust in the pros.

I agree completely. As a guy who is 1/8th white, I felt extreme pride at the success and skill Stauskas displayed as a Wolverine. Hopefully it'll continue. The success and the pride.

|12 weeks 5 days ago||Hilarious read. Horford's family has finally||
Hilarious read. Horford's family has finally convinced him that he deserves what he doesn't. They must think he's a better player than how he plays. If we could have the starting five with Morgan play the starting five with Horford, Horford's team would lose by 15 to 20. The team was that much worse with him on the floor. Both McGary and Morgan have developed and had huge impacts on the offense. And I wouldn't give Horford the ball in the post either because he didn't get high percentage shots.

Thank you for your post. I grow tired of people being fearful of picking "another WR" or not valuing offense as the rules continue to change. Also people want to stay defense or O line to make them feel better, regardless of if those players fit into what the Lions need , skill-wise, at those positions. Megatron is the best player period. I believe you increase his effectiveness by drafting the most talented and most likely player to produce that is available. Also the Lions usually evaluate talent well, it was Millen who would ignore those scouts and Draft whoever he wanted.

Not that I hated past teams, but every year I love Beilein's teams more and more. He recruits such quality young men.
Now is the looooong offseason until football. Ugh. Maybe I can catch up on some videogames and double up on some classes.

Both calls were good.

I'm not worried about this game though I'm not saying it's a guaranteed win. Barring an unusual game where UK shoots great or we shot poorly, or really bad officiating, an abundance of turnovers we should be fine. I expect a comfortable victory of around 8 points with UofM threatening to blow UK out.

You don't see anyone buying tickets to watch you do your job either. Poor comparison. Football is entertainment which by definition should be enjoyable.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||I agree. Fassbender as||
I agree. Fassbender as Magneto is excellent. McAvoy and him are great. Never liked Halle Berry as Storm from the beginning. I think they went for a well known name instead of finding a better actress. Though Storm isn't the most emotional character, Berry just doesn't do it for me in the role.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||What's the source material?||
What's the source material? I've been looking for a good place to start with X-Men comics (I've done Wolverine, Go Blue! and Green Lantern), but I don't know where to begin. This probably wouldn't be a good starting point, though.
edit: someone answerd this already, excitement got the best of me.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||That's another good point.||
That's another good point. You have to know how and what to order. My wife would always complain that there was not enough meat (that's what she said) and too much lettuce. Well, order a double with light lettuce or no lettuce. I get a triple double (when my wife's not around to complain) no lettuce, animal style with the bun well toasted. Oh yes!
|15 weeks 3 days ago||I have to tell you that is||
I have to tell you that is the same way I felt about In N Out the first time I went. A woman I knew was enamored with In N Out, saying they are the only burgers she eats and the fries were great. My first time was good, but nothing special. Tasted kind of different. Fries were interesting. The more I go the more I appreciate it and love it. From my experience the difference is kind of strange because not many places have fresh ingredients and my taste buds weren't used to it. The fries actually maintained their potato taste since they weren't frozen. Maybe different from your experience, but thought I'd share.
