So that's where the term "Cincinnati Bow-Tie" comes from

It looks like Waldo is giving it to someone then yes.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||in all fairness...||
he got the part about his university right. Also, you have to hand it to the kid, admitting he has a problem is a first step in the right direction and it looks like he'll be making better use of his time soon.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||It was a good read...||
now I'm no grammar or logic genius but did Heiko just tell me that I married an old girlfriend's ex-fiance?
|3 years 38 weeks ago||sorry, EcoKat is the cat-ish||
sorry, EcoKat is the cat-ish thing. I was editing my initial misspelling of EcoKat's name.
EDIT - I'm wrong again...EcoKat IS the chick. Apparently the cat-ish thing is their regular mascot Willie with a special shirt.
|3 years 38 weeks ago||So the cat thing I kind of get...||
the eco thing is kind of weird, but can someone explain why they have Erin E-surance as Eco-cat's sidekick?
EDIT: Sorry, that's EcoKat
|3 years 44 weeks ago||Maybe our definition of "carrying the team" is different but...||
without thinking too hard about it, Niemi, Ward, Thomas, Hextall (though the Flyers ultimately lost the cup that year, I believe he still won playoff MVP), Roy.
I don't have specifics but just remember Osgood also single-handedly losing playoff series. Every time I think of him I get the impression of him losing 3-1 series leads with soft goals though I admit that was from a long time ago. Based on this, I don't think he gets HOF. Maybe not fair but I've always though of Osgood as the worst goalie to ever win the cup and it was more a function of playing behind some HOF blueliners.
Edit - this was in response to teldar's question of goalies carrying their teams to cups...then I read his post again and realized my FAIL as he was asking about goalies carrying their teams to multiple cups...oops

You do not want Kaberle. He was the best defender in Toronto which was a low bar. Boston got him to help their power play which then got worse. For most of his time in Boston, a mean look would cause him to turn the puck over.
|3 years 49 weeks ago||He was terrible in the other||
He was terrible in the other games but playing pretty well in this one and I love seeing him go at Chara.
|3 years 49 weeks ago||Yeah, I'm no fan of his but||
Yeah, I'm no fan of his but that Kesler bashing was stupid. He was a beast in the playoffs until he got hurt. Its like people think he's the only professional athlete ever to talk trash, especially since his play had backed it up to that point. In my opinion, he single handedly made up for the Sedins totally disappearing in the first two rounds.
|3 years 49 weeks ago||I think Boston deserves it||
I think Boston deserves it more BUT I hate Tim Thomas. He’s a sick goalie but he’ll check a guy not known for hitting of any kind (Henrik Sedin...the hit was hilarious though) and then turn around and whine about getting his stick nudged.
Boston’s coach also cried about officiating in the first around (you can’t complain about a penalty if your defenseman shoots the puck over the glass in the D-zone).
And my guess is Luongo will get pulled if it looks like he’s headed toward a bad game, long before a meltdown.
I think the Bs deserve it more because I can’t stand the way Vancouver has played this series. Boston has victimized the Sedins, shot a puck at Luongo during warm-ups (ok just flipped a puck), practically broke Mason Raymond’s back (I don’t think it was dirty but this is the Stanley Cup and there should have been a reaction) Thomas hit Henrik Sedin all with no reaction from Vancouver.

I like when that guy on Fast Money talks about their stock and calls them the Fighting Phoenicians.
|4 years 2 weeks ago||So you're saying there's a chance...||
Actually, I guess it's more like Tie's saying it via Dougie G.
Here's this link:
|4 years 9 weeks ago||yeah...||
I just re-read what I wrote and thought it didn't make sense then watched it again and saw that...at least we don't come off looking as bad as they made the world champions look.
|4 years 9 weeks ago||I doubt it...||
They show Lionel Messi dismantle a bunch of dudes from Barcelona which, I think, is a Nike team.

Komisarek sucks now along with the rest of the Leafs' D. He's another in a decade-long line of bad free-agent signings.
|4 years 16 weeks ago||I'm in...||
Should be easily doable for early afternoon games in September.
I tried to watch Michigan/Iowa in 2009 at that place beside Jack Astor's on Front (Loose Moose?) but they have a weird TV system that only allows 3 or 4 different channels on throughout the bar at any given time.
The LSU game was already on (I think the other channels had MLB playoffs and a Leafs game) I figured LSU was a random pick and asked for the Michigan game to be put on but several tables of people had requested it. As luck would have it, by the time the LSU game ended and the TV got switched, all I got to see was Denard's interception and sad pandas.

Random thoughts on being a Michigan fan in TO...
The problem with seeing people wear college gear here is you don't know if they're a fan or if their name just starts with an M, or an F, or an O.
Also annoying when I'm watching CFB (ND/Stanford) in a bar and it gets switched halfway through for a pre-season hockey game (when we all know the Leafs are going to suck anyway).
I'll never be able to be a TFC fan because their colors are red and grey.
Sports pack on Rogers can't be beat though (30 bucks a month for NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, NCAA Football & Basketball, Nascar, OHL).
|4 years 19 weeks ago||The OP is wrong about the bench press||
Fred Jackson cannot bench press as much as Jake Long can, that would be ridiculous.
In truth, Fred Jackson can bench press Jake Long...while Jake Long is bench pressing.
|4 years 19 weeks ago||This is going to sound like a cliche...||
But its a holistic view of a bunch of stuff like GPA (including to a small extent the school and program), GMAT, extra-curriculars, work experience, interview, your case for why you need an MBA and, specifically a Michigan MBA (though once accepted, all bets are off as far as any plan or case you put on an app)
That said, I'd take the GMAT again to try and get your score up to the mid-600's. They say the middle 80% gets 650-750 so people do get in with less than 650 but (sorry to say this) you have given yourself a steep, slippery, likely insurmountable,slope to climb (though I don't know how the rest of your candidacy looks).
|4 years 19 weeks ago||Is there a site to track this bad boy?||
There are rumors the search committee is using it, but I heard from an inside source that the b-school students rented the Bus to someone who is using it to deliver alcohol to Michigan alumni in nearby Big Ten cities.
|4 years 20 weeks ago||Well played sir||
Just need an analogy relating to liking the effort or the guys playing hard...
|4 years 20 weeks ago||HAHA||
"...heaping dose of #2"...I just left one in the toilet if you want to go with that one.
Sorry, couldn't resist.
|4 years 20 weeks ago||Being vested and caring isn't the same thing||
Especially, continuing the corporate analogy, the way a lot of people invest these days as evidenced by things like the "Cramer Effect". Most Michigan fans, good or bad, know way more about Michigan Football than lot of people know about the companies they buy shares in and fans definitely care more about coach hirings than investors care about execs.
|4 years 20 weeks ago||I heard from an inside, nameless source...||
...that this is all a grand conspiracy.
Pissed off that fans were unhappy he was averaging 8-9 wins a year, starting the season in the top 10 but finishing it in the 20s, constantly losing to The University of Ohio State University of the State of Ohio and getting blown out every time he went up against USC in the Rose Bowl, Lloyd Carr worked it out with Bill Martin that he, Lloyd, would retire, Martin would hire a coach from some hick town, also retire, they would work from behind the scenes with Braylon Edwards to undermine the new coach by making a kerfuffle about the #1 jersey, slow down the staff’s watches and clocks around Schembechler hall so that they would unknowingly let stretching go a few minutes too long every day, get Greg Robinson fired at ‘Cuse and, while he was down in the dumps, tell him the secret to great defence was rubbing random stuffed animals on players’ faces, convince Mary Sue Coleman to hire a replacement AD with ties to Bo who would perpetuate the Michigan Man Mafia, rely on the fact that the team’s 3 worst defensive seasons would be insurmountable, have the MMM AD fire the hick coach and then hire as the replacement coach...Lloyd Carr.

it also makes the impact of their transfer or injury that much clearer and, probably more painful.
" And my wolf pack... it grew by one. So there... there were two of us in the wolf pack... I was alone first in the pack, and then Doug joined in later. And six months ago, when Doug introduced me to you guys, I thought, "Wait a second, could it be?" And now I know for sure, I just added two more guys to my wolf pack. Four of us wolves, running around the desert together..." either the guy that wrote the Hangover or Zach Galiafinakis 2009
Sorry, just wanted to join in on the wolf pack fun.

|4 years 29 weeks ago||Disagree on the competent DC...||
I’ll be the first to admit I don’t know that much about coaching football (ie. Pretty much nothing) but, in my uneducated opinion, it seems like NFL success (more focused on calling plays and having elite talent execute…over-simplification, I know), no matter how long ago it was, doesn’t necessarily translate to college (more focused on actually teaching and developing young people).
If you discount his NFL success (I also don’t give him much credit for the Texas NC) then you’re left with his ancient history at UCLA (where he had a year as OC…isn’t there a heuristic about switching sides of the ball?) and the disaster at Syracuse. I guess I’m saying I don’t think there is any evidence that he would be a competent college DC.
