|2 weeks 5 days ago||Great night in A2||
Drinking some Diabolical IPA
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Boom!||
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Nothing to see here||
Coaching is a huge fraternity where they are always helping each other. Coaches regularly pick each other's brains, this is a non-story
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Great suggestions||
The only one i would add is Taste Kitchen. It opened a few months ago is now tied for my favorite in A2 with Pacific Rim. The Chop House (along with all of the Main St Ventures restaurants) is highly overrated, and over priced. I don't mind paying top $ for a steak, but Chop House is pretty pedestrian.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Pipkins||
annnnnnddddd so much for your slow news day :(
|4 weeks 6 days ago||No||
The "everyone else is doing argument" is incredibly weak. Win, and win right. We don't know the full story here, but if what Pipkins says is true, that's pretty unacceptable.
And I assume you meant line that *can't* be crossed
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Nice work...||
...Though I wouldn't actually call today a "slow news day" given <redacted, no politics>.
Great work on this analysis, and hopefully this sets up for some ewpic battle in the years to come.
|5 weeks 9 hours ago||Wow||
He has 14 scholarship offers from Michigan?!?! Quite the multi-sport talent.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Paris||
In Paris, go to Real Entrecôte. Fairly reasonable in terms of pricing and amazing food. Bistro Paul Bert is also great, but that's a little more expensive. Septime was probably the second best meal I've ever had, but that's also really pricey
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Angleos||
Saw the three of them today at Angelos with Mama Gwen, DJ Durkin, and what I'm assuming we're his wife and little girl. Lots of smiles and laughs at the table.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||..or maybe||
Or maybe that's why hockey players play 1 out of every 3 minutes. All sports are very grueling at this level. Trying to compare them is an exercise in futility.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Vacation time?||
Who cares!! You're quitting in 3 months anyway.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Nash-Vegas||
Tradition with a few of our friends, going on three years now. Lots of sun, country music, southern food, and most importantly beers in my future.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Band||
I don't know what crappy wedding bands you've seen, but a good band at a wedding is amazing. They're also really expensive, running $5k plus, which makes it cost prohibitive. We had a DJ, but my one regret is not getting a band.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Honeymoon||
I think it depends on what you are going to do. If you are going to do something relaxing, like lying on a beach, that's perfect for right after. You are going to want the break. We waited a few months to go on ours (a 2 week tour of Europe), and we were both happy we did since it was a lot of travelling around. After the wedding is over, all you're going to want to do is relax.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||I would argue against going cheap||
...but recognize what's important to you and spend money on that. What I able to (begrudgingly) get the wife to agree to was to have her ask herself. "Have you ever been to a wedding and noticed item X, and was it importantl". For example. no reason to upgrade to fancy silverware, flatware, glassware. I nice wedding glass doesn't make or break a wedding.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Rugby||
In rugby, the person who scores doesn't have to kick the extra point. However, you have to kick it parallel to where you scored the try, so if you scored right next to touch line (aka sideline), it creates some really sharp angled kicks.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Freudian||
Hopefully not Freudian slip. Would love to see a few of these UDFAs stick.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||Totally agree||
But why are calling out the Northwestern game? Or is that just a subtle dig at Rutgers by calling out all of other B1G home games?
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Where'd that come from?||
Unfounded speculation is unfounded.
|15 weeks 2 hours ago||Really?||
We had a top 25ish recruit in Chatman, and probably one of the steals of year in Dawkins (not to mention Rahk and Doyle who were contributors as freshmen) this year, and Wagner would have been a 4/5 star recruit and we are still in on 2 other top recruits.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||Well||
A) you should be clearer B) you were still wrong :)
|15 weeks 6 days ago||It's 7||
|17 weeks 4 days ago||Thanks||
Thanks for posting. I thought the same thing when I watched it on my DVR on Friday and was shocked no one had posted about it. Apparently it's a bit of a Zona Peligrosa to talk about that around here though.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||You||
You must be a ton of fun at parties.
|19 weeks 3 days ago||Maybe||
Maybe if you're 5'4", but if you're a normal sized adult it's the WORST
|19 weeks 5 days ago||I was concerned||
Seeing as how tone deaf you are about how Albany is perceived in the NYC / LI area
|19 weeks 5 days ago||What an ending!!!||
Go Danes!!! Three years in a row in the tournament!
|19 weeks 5 days ago||What does that mean?||
Albany is in NY, and it has almost as many students from downstate as StonyBrook.
|20 weeks 4 days ago||Go Danes||
See, I told you not to worry!
