There are three consecutive plays against the same blue team starting around 2:30 in the highlights. I think the opposing center weighs about 170lbs and gets absolutely destroyed every time. I couldn't stop laughing or wondering what the opposing coach was thinking planning for the matchup.

My mind tends to go to dark places when I hear things like "no longer found in student directory". It's something bigger than football, I hope he's okay.

The TTB assessment of Willie Henry always pops into my head when I think about his success. The prognosticator of prognosticators...

I got excited during the CB -> Mich series of events a couple days ago and she quickly told me that I shouldn't be wasting my time
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Here's some edge of the internet info for ya:||
I work with a woman whose son is a standout football player in the Bay Area and was supposed to attend Antioch. She has maintained for months that Najee is going to Bama. I don't know/care how she knows or whether her info is solid or hearsay or even real (much like everyone reading this probably feels about this very post) so... How unsatified do you feel having read that?
|12 weeks 1 day ago||I just didn't understand the connection you were making||
You did say that the field upped their game but it was in the context of "dominance" and you correlated it to MSU football. I dont really understand how Tiger being injured results in a larger and deeper talent pool on tour, and I thought you were simply focusing on tour wins as the only metric for quality of play.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||You're arguing different things||
There's no question that none of the players he listed have achieved the level of dominance seen by early 2000s Tiger. I don't know if we'll see that level of dominance again in our lives. His point, which I tend to agree with and which Tiger himself has stated, is that the field has caught up.
I have a hard time believing that anything less than a 100% Tiger Woods is going to win tournaments in today's PGA tour but how will we ever be able to judge that? We can't unless he goes out and proves me wrong by winning in way we haven't seen in about 10 years.

Making the hopefully not so traffic packed drive from the Bay Area in a few short hours. Excited to experience some fall/winter weather for the first time in a while

I have spent my professional career working on immunology in the Bay Area, and I logged in to post something very similar to this. There is a very large body of work that has demonstrated a negative correlation between parasitic infections and succeptability to not only allergies but other diseases of the immune system such as IBD (inflammatory bowel disease not in before delete).
I'm not saying that I would eat hookworms to treat my allergies (luckily I don't have allergies) but the OP isn't crazy for asking this question.

Drinking tonight and heading to the midwinter conference at asilomar tomorrow. Who's with me?.... Nobody? Okay

Is that you, Cardale Jones?

|1 year 38 weeks ago||to expand on this question a bit||
how do you know that you were the most qualified person for the job (of those interviewed)?
|2 years 4 weeks ago||IBD||
IBD would be inflammatory bowel disease, while IBS is irritable bowel syndrome. There is no such thing as irritable bowel disease.

both your and YTs responses are much appreciated

What are your favorite bars/restaurants in traverse? I'm heading up there this summer for a golf/drinking/gambling trip with a group of guys and any recommendations would be appreciated.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||Agree with Mr. Forest||
I was speaking in relation to historical academic rankings. I thought that USC and UCLA were always in the 25-30 range. Personally, I do agree that UCLA is a much better school than USC, but that opinion is heavily biased.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||Cal Tech||
Zero surprises that Cal Tech is a top 10 school. USC and UCLA have always been fringe top-25.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||Speaking of the Shane fiasco||
His assumption regarding emails and statements made after 11pm lead me to question whether or not he was drinking/drunk when he released the Shane Morris press release at 1am?
|2 years 26 weeks ago||Fenway||
I had a horrible time at Fenway. Did small amounts of research to avoid the beams I remember from old tiger stadium. I sat in the left field bleechers and the distance between my pelvis and my patella was greater than the distance between my seat back and the seat in front of me. I'm 6ft 2in so this has to be a common problem that people run into. That being said the rest of the park was great.
Oakland colluseum and candlestick are/were pretty bad

I live along the peninsula and will be heading up to napa this weekend to golf and go to a napa valley high school sports booster club dinner on Saturday night... I would recommend both of those things
Anyway, although I side with many of the people who would have advised you to go elsewhere because of cost, it sounds as though you are already locked in on napa valley. I personally enjoy the grounds at Rombauer and Buena Vista to be the most asthetically pleasing. My favorite tasting of all time was at a very very tiny place called frias family vineyard simply because the grounds were beautiful and the staff was fantastic, unfortunately, I believe it was a tasting by appointment only, but it might be worth looking into. I would highly recommend that you stay away from the wine train if that is even on your radar. Also, although I enjoy the wine at duckhorn, I have found the employees to be on the stuffier side.
I highly recommend that you go to Vi Sattui and at least try the Madiera, I always pick up a bottle or 4 when we head up to napa. Also, I know it was mentioned in this thread, the employees at vi sattui frown on outside food and drink, so don't try to drag over a delicious lunch from Dean and DeLuca's across the street. If you're an old fashioned/manhattan guy, I highly recommend you pick up a bottle of Eva vermouth at Dean and DeLuca's as I believe it is the stuff used at Zingermann's (according to a friend) and I have yet to find it anywhere else.
Ad Hoc is a great spot, and some other locals we ran into last time also mentioned brunch at Mustard's. I have heard great things about Bouchon as well, but I've never been there and it would definitely be on the pricier side.

gordie bell had a little write up back in Feb., on Josh Jackson. I have been waiting to hear more about Mr. Jackson since then.

States that this is our second camp offer. Who received the other one?
|3 years 35 weeks ago||Love the idea||
I think a small block M in blue on one and maize on the other would look great in any of several locations. Simple and clean.

To me he looks like he could develop into a future Withey or Zeller, and yes both of them were very lean. He may lack a polished back to the basket game, but he's still a high schooler. You can question his competition all you want, the athleticism, timing, and skill are there.

Going to Tahoe with some friends (probably drinking excessively too)
Yes, very much. Although the only place I've ever gone in Michigan is to the pigeon river (most of my time is spent packing out west.)
Yes, I know one particular blogger but I'm sure that I actually know more of you in real life
Straight up, although I did live off of grilled cheese with hummus and avocado for several months in college.

In Ann Arbor for 3 years straight (I think) in the early 2000s performing at the Michigan Theater. Those were the good days, before his freak out.
