Braylonfest '04, without a doubt.

We ought to objectify Olympic athletes more. Who's got a better body, these women or underwear models that eat 800 calories a day?
(apologies for the hot take)

That sounds harder, but OK...

This came out in drips yesterday right after the conference; probably took Adam until now to transcribe everything.

I thought that was weird too. The two X factors IMO are 1. Different skills mastered and 2. People who care about your sport. Phelps suffers on both of those; meanwhile I hear that this Pele guy was pretty good.

Cumong, it's not 50/50. PK percentage is right around 80%, so Solo was average today at worst.

Kicker ranking and predictions are about as reliable as Frozen Four seedings.

I love this idea. OL are huge because DL are huge...because OL are huge. Put a weight limit in to rewards agility and strength over sheer bulk.

This is a first-world problem to be sure, but how would you feel if M's record after the year is 10-2...but the losses are MSU and OSU, again?

Thanks, I didn't know that.
5 times Pitt has been passed over. 5!!!
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Pitt||
It's a minor point in the post, but I'll always be annoyed that Pitt (secretly a perfect B1G school) wasn't even considered. I mean:
-strong academics and research
-natural rival in PSU
-Solid BBall school most years

Here's a question: Why does the NBA have a draft? The league already has roster limits and a salary cap. I know the argument is that blue-chip players would go to NYC/LA, but after the first year or two they would be maxed out. If there was no draft, instead of "tanking" teams would want to have a pretty good team with room for one huge contract to lure the next LeBron.

This goes back to the 80s, but it's relevant now:
Dunks are worth 3 points.
Rewards big-man play again and keeps basketball from completely turning into a moving 3 point contest.

Yeah, if your team was losing after about the 6th inning, it was OVER. Mo was the best, but the rest of that bullpen was great in its own right.

Agreed, and it's tough the way soccer scores that. It was much more of a good pass by Bale than a "mistake" by the defender.

I think a lot of it has to do with pure distance. Imagine if Columbus was where Ypsi is and The Game happened 2x every year.

This was great; I can't wait for the next installment. If Brian thinks hockey offside is dumb, I can't WAIT until he gets to soccer.

Best thing I ever did was to get the house wired for Comcast and Fios. I've been bouncing back and forth on the cheap "intro" rates for a few years now and it's great.

Brian's soccer post in 2010 about Landon Donovan's last second goal is my all-time favorite, and the best USA soccer writing I've ever seen.
