Carolina BBQ (butt), collards, slaw, 7 layer dip, sausage dip and french onion soup.
Planter's punch and Fonta Flora Apple Saison.
I don't like the Panthers but they are so going to win.

Completely unwatchable. Total pounding from tip to buzzer. Miserable basketball. Embarrassing.
They played like they were scared 45 seconds into game.

I have had a few people close to me take their own lives. The last one was this past Thanksgiving morning - a family friend (let's call her Francine) with young children who was supposed to come over for the holiday dinner. I woke up to my wife's shrieking - Francine was her best friend.
My wife and I had lunch with Francine a week before she killed herself. We knew she was down. We told her that we loved her and that it's always darkest before the dawn. We even offtered to take the kids so she could go on a vacation. We called her everyday. It wasn't enough. I am not in her inner circle. Those people--my wife, her mother, her two kids, her sister and husband--are irreparably damaged. So if I sound like I'm still working through this it's because I am. Francine was loved by everyone.

Sympathy? They're dead. Everyone knows suicide is viewed as selfish and violent act by those who love the killer/victim. That's why it is an emotional wrecking ball, someone killed the person you loved, and it was the person you love. Show some sympathy and respect for the loved ones by not sharing your opinion.

Took my kids to the B&BRR circus last night . . . I know, bullhooks . . . anyway, the BMXers there all had long faces and did not look like they were into the performance. Undoubtedly due to Mirra's death. Also, I got food poisoning from the chicken strips at PNC Arena.

I said I would probably regret it. It's a good source-works in the Clemson AD. It may just be him reading the no communication tea leaves the same way Sam is.

I'll probably regret posting this, but my Clemson insider guy says he's going Blue. Just sent me a text saying, "you're getting the big fish." We've been talking about him for a while now.

My wife insists that she only let him name the boy this for a day. I think she's wrong.

|1 week 6 days ago||I tend to agree with this,||
I tend to agree with this, which is why you'll never find me bitching about Saban or Meyer. They're great coaches. They know what it takes to win. And we are so used to losing that we have abandoned the will to do what it takes and start tossing around phrases like, "the right way" etc. We've put Bo up on a pedastal without the microscope of social media that Harbaugh has to endure. These are different times fellas.
The mgostaff has been saying things like crootin' and such because they know it too. In fact, to some degree their livelihood depends on it. This website we all love so much is driven by pageviews, and when Michigan is winning, the page views go up.
Remember how much spleen there was to be had around here over the last 7 years? These kids want to win and the staff owes it to the kids on the team much more than they do the kids who aren't yet on the team. It stinks to the extent that highschool kids aren't exactly masters of subtlety and reading between the lines. But at some point it becomes about the team, and they aren't on the team until they're on campus and enrolled.
I really wish we could get along and wait it out. No amount of limited access indignation is going to change anything for this cycle, but we're already eating our own, again. When the season is over, make your judgements then.

I spent all day on a work party for a local brewery that my buddies own. No beer for me tonight, too exhausted, plus, I drank all day.

This guy is drunk and needs to go to bed, not because of his spin on things, but because he just can't seem to be nice: http://mgoblog.com/users/michfanisbackagain6060

I'm out there busting my buns every night! Tell your old man to drag Walton and Lanier up and down the court for 48 minutes!

He was identified for his own shenanigans though and that's why he got the show-cause.

My wife lived in the trailer park! She had her own double-wide. Seriously, that's the OCH situation there, pretty grim.

I've stayed there several times, my wife is an alumna. I think the best thing that could be said about it is it's "quaint." Food stinks and I mean it's just awful, no nightlife to speak of, nearest thing of interest is Atlanta (which is an hour and a half away). I turned down a job there a few years ago at a budding bio-tech firm because there's no way I'm raising my kids in a cultureless BFE.

Elliot killed himself with a kitchen knife to the heart. Pretty much one of the biggest bummers ever. My wife's best friend killed herself last Thursday. My wife and her friend met at a Ben Folds Five show . . . Late is gonna make me bawl if I listen to it, and now I have to.
