|8 weeks 5 days ago||I thought I was 37||
I'm 38. But until about 10 seconds ago I thought I was 37. It's hard to remember when you're this old.
UMLS, JD, '06.
I won't read the freep, ever, no matter what. I don't view that as any loss though, as I subscribed for a week when I first got to A2 in 2003 and quickly realized it was the worst major-city newspaper I had ever read, which was really saying something. I also gave the Dolphin Puncher's book a terrible review on Amazon and feel no shame about it.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||In-n-Out||
This isn't even close, IMO. They are both good and both overrated (because there are groups of people who will insist that either is nothing short of mind-blowning, life-changing ambrosia--and while good, or maybe even very good, they aren't that). I think a lot of people who arrive in California have an expectations problem when it comes to In-n-Out. It isn't all it's cracked up to be. But you know what it is? Superior to Five Guys.
Living in Ann Arbor now, I'll take Elevation Burger over Five Guys any day of the week, every time, no question.

Given the "sole car" limitation, this is the obvious choice, IMO.
(In case the threading isn't clear, I'm referring to MGoAero's choice of an E63 wagon.)

To me, the question is beyond absurd.

Picks would vary a great deal depending on what your opponent is doing.
Normally I'd say you take your QB first, but here it doesn't sound like we have a stand-out, so taking a QB before your opponent does is probably not much of an adavantage here (unlike picking Luck in 2010). I think that's true for RB and WR too on this team. Beliving that your O lives and dies by its OL, and your D by its middle, mine would look something like this (factoring in that it sounds like we have one stand-out TE):
(1) Cole, OT.
(2) Peppers, S (or Lewis, CB, if Peppers is gone).
(3) Butt, TE.
(4) Morgan, LB.
(5) Kugler, C (assuming, as I suspect, he's the only decent C we have right now).
(6) Henry, DT.
(7) Kalis, OG.
(8) Mone, DT.
(9) Mags, OT/OG.
(10) Ross, LB.
(11) Lewis, CB (or Countess, if Lewis is gone).
Of course I would insert one each at QB, RB, and WR (probably immediately) after my opponent took his. For QB I'd probably take Morris, Speight if Morris is gone. RB I'd probably take Smith, Green if Smith is gone. WR I'd take Darboh, Cole if Darboh is gone.

|22 weeks 5 days ago||Naturalist Ernest Thompson||
Naturalist Ernest Thompson Seton described the wolverine as "[A] tremendous character . . . a personality of unmeasured force, courage, and achievement so enveloped in a mist of legend, superstition, idolatry, fear, and hatred, that one scarcely knows how to begin or what to accept as fact. Picture a weasel--and most of us can do that, for we have met the little demon of destruction, that small atom of insensate courage, that symbol of slaughter, sleeplessness, and tireless, incredbile activity--picture that scrap of demoniac fury, multiply that mite by some fifty times, and you have the likenes of a wolverine."

I was thinking animal too. In the end, I'm going with a fuck lion.

Best board post I've seen here in a long time. A little surprised to see such Harbaugh passion coming from you, though, Coach.
|31 weeks 12 hours ago||My recollection||
(1) Jim H. (2)/(3) Les M. or John H.
The rest in something of an order: Patterson, Peterson, Gruden, Cowher, Dungy, Fitzgerald, Ferentz, Edsall, Mullen.

There was a moment when I thought maybe Ace, but no. Brian wins, IMO.

|1 year 42 weeks ago||Famines aren't funny||
As usual, I enjoyed the post and appreciate your good work. But you'll have to excuse me as using this as the one opportunity to get this off my chest. The “Where was the ‘Luck of the Irish’ during the potato famine?” sign struck me as being in very poor taste. When I saw that I just thought, "Wow, way to make everyone watching Game Day think Michigan fans are just a bunch of dicks." And I'm a long way from being a sensitive PC cop.There were complicating factors to the potato famine, most importantly serious repression by the English, which make that kind of joke closer to "Where was the luck of the Jews during the Holocaust?" than something funny.

Way too many posts to see what's been called already. So...40-3, M.

Calling a blogger as good as Brian a journalist would be an insult to Brian.

|2 years 45 weeks ago||Wilson's looked good||
As a resident of western Washington I do my best to care about the Seahawks (I don't always succeed). I've watched every Seahawks preseason game and Wilson has looked real good. But I'll be surprised if Flynn isn't the starter once the season starts.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||Two comments||
Pretty sure they didn't have an 11-1 season. I think it was officially 0-12.
|2 years 46 weeks ago||I like it||
But it has exposed Ace as a Michigan-hating troll/mole. It took until, what, like the 18th round for him to draft a Wolverine, and he only took Campbell because he had to take a NT and all the others were taken. And he ripped on Heiko (or Seth) for drafting Barnum, who is awesome.
|2 years 47 weeks ago||Love Subarus||
We have an '08 Forester XT and it is simply amazing in the snow. I also have a 4x4 F-150 and when there's a ton of snow on the ground I'll take the Forester over the truck--absolutely no question. The Subaru is just about unstoppable.
