Just the governors? Add to that list mayors, comptrollers, aldermen and women, husbands and wives of elected officals (particularly congresspeople), cops, and the guy who was driving the street cleaner who killed a pedestrian because he was drunk.

As someone who was born and raised in Illinois, the level of corruption at so many different levels blows my mind. You would think we'd be the model of midwestern humility and honest hard work. Instead, we're a bunch of short cut takers and self-promoting liars. Well, I'm not, I'm just talking about everyone else.

Just wanted to remind everyone that the Little League World Series is still going and Pearland, Texas - and Michigan alum and manager Andrew Solomon - will be playing in a double elimination game tonight at 8 PM EST on ESPN. Win or go home. Last night they played a great Pennsylvania team, with phenomenal pitching, and took one on the chin, 3-0. If they win tonight, they play PA again on Saturday in the US championship game.

Were cats' anal glands coverd in that one? Our cat has some serious canine-like anal glands.

My double entendre was unintentional as I'm sure yours was, too. ;)

I know I'm talking to myself here, but next Thursday, I'll be watching the Utah game and Project Runway with picture-in-picture. I'm a woman of many hats.

Maybe I'm being selfish, but my kids are too old for toys so I feel safe.

But he probably won't get one until I stop double posting.

My husband wants a BMW i8. I'll take a Singer. Singervehicledesign.com

I never liked Brady Hoke, I thought he was a yokel from that first press conference. I think Jim Harbaugh is certifiable (for real) but as long as he wins and does it the right way, I don't care. Enough with the uniforms. Just leave them alone. Who cares?

It's ok, everyone. Take a deep breath. He's gone. And he's never coming back.

I had a very short-lived radio career in college. Is there still a student station?

Sort of embarrassed to say this but I drink so much McDonald's fountain soda that my husband got me a McDonald's debit card. It beats having to find 9 cents every time I hit the drive thru.

Diet Coke in the morning. Preferably a large from McDonald's which has the best syrup to carbonation ratio.

We just took a train from Paris to Barcelona and no one looked at anything of ours, either upon departure or arrival. Didn't even check our passports when we arrived in Spain.

I'm sure they exist; we just don't know about them ;)

I do think the financial repercussions of divorce need to be rejiggered to be more fair to the men. I have a family member who got financially skewered by his ex-wife and for the life of me, can't figure out why the judge is siding with her. I think once the kids are out of the house, the husband's financial responsibility to his ex-wife should be greatly reduced if not eliminated completely. Why should he be responsible for someone who can go out and get a job?
|1 week 18 hours ago||As long as the spouse is in||
As long as the spouse is in the know, I don't know why they'd need a cheating site. They can just go to Match.com or whatever the dating site flavor of the month is. I was speaking specifically to those who use the site as it's advertised - to cheat. We look down on cheating in sports (how many times have we chastised the Buckeyes for their various infractions?). Cheating in marriage isn't any different. I guess you could argue that marriage or monogamy is unnatural or untenable and I probably wouldn't disagree. But I think if you enter into it with a contract with the other person saying you're going to forsake all others, the person who gets cheated on basically against their will - against the contract - has grounds to be pissed and to think that their spouse is a cheating lying sack of shit. But if the two people agree that they're not going to forsake all others, then that's between them, and then it's not cheating. It all depends on what both parties agree on, and that should always be explicit (in a clarity sense, not a provocative XXX sense).
|1 week 21 hours ago||I've been married for 17||
I've been married for 17 years - I totally get the reasons. I guess it's a matter of maturity and knowing there are consequences. You have to decide what you value and be willing to lose the thing that you value least, whether it be your marriage or the thrill and excitement of someone new. It's not as if these people are the first ever people to test the waters of commitment and fidelity. It's more of an indictment of those willing to monetize this unattractive piece of human nature.

Not sure what the appeal of cheating is. If you're not happy in your marriage, get a divorce. This website, though, seems to be about the thrill of cheating. While not illegal, it's still pretty shitty to organize a concerted effort to treat people (the spouse) in a really shitty, hurtful way.

I feel for you. That's a terrible position for a 14 y.o. to be in. A kid on my son's team was at bat and apparently said to the ump after he called a ball, "Are you fucking blind?" Kid got tossed deservedly. I probably would have laughed had I been the ump. But when one of the coaches goes off, it's way wrong.

Just horrible and humiliating. This is the worst thing ever to come out of a coach's mouth.
|1 week 1 day ago||Not so much what a coach||
Not so much what a coach said, but what he did. My son was in 5th grade house league baseball, with 5th and 6th graders. Everyone plays. The coach was a dad and prof at Northwestern. During one of the first games, my son asked to pitch. He's always been a pitcher, still is as a rising sophomore in high school. No problem. He went in for a few innings, had a rough time, got upset with himself, and the coach pulled him out. Fine. But then the coach never let him pitch again. My son would ask, and the coach would give him a vague response. He'd pitch other kids, especially his own son, but never my son. As the season wore on, my son started to lose confidence. He had been the trusted closer the previous season, and was as accurate as any pitcher around. My husband and I decided not to say anything, and to let my son work it out. Finally, the last game of the season approaches. It's their first playoff game. We encourage our son to send the coach an email the night before, telling him how much he wants to pitch - stand up for yourself and never give up. He bravely does it. Next day at the game, coach doesn't even acknowledge he got the email. He pitches his own son, who doesn't do so well. We think maybe he's going to put our son in, but instead, he puts my son's best friend in, who isn't even a pitcher. He ends up giving up numerous runs and they lose the game. We still see the guy because our sons now both play high school ball. At the opening event last spring, when he heard our son was a starting pitcher on the A team, he said, "Oh, he must have really improved to make A."
You let him pitch once. How would you know how good he is? (says the protective mama bear - don't mess with my kid!) Our daughters play on the same softball team and we carpool occasionally. I am cordial but I can tell you, this is one grudge I will hold forever.

That's great! We watched a bit of the series a couple of days ago. My daughter plays and in fact just had her tryouts for next year.

He seems like the kind of guy who wants to engage in as little small talk as possible. So if he's not going to reveal anything significant, why talk at all? I know people expect the convention of coach speak at this point, but why have another Colin Cowherd situation? The guy doesn't want to talk.

I wonder if he still thinks of himself as a Michigan Man.

My dream job would be chef to the team. Guess that's not gonna happen.

I lived in the Triangle/DePaul area for years. I watched all the great old homes come down and huge chateau-like McMansions go up (in the Willow/burling/Orchard area). I drive around there now and it's just a big study in wretched excess.

I've been following the pre-season since 2008, with the Countdown to Kickoff, the various Big Ten Network shows, the random tidbits of information here, etc... and most of it is just fluff to fill air time. The responses are predictable, yet never really accurately predict how the season is going to turn out. So for entertainment purposes, yeah, all that stuff is fun. But for real information, I found it a bit misleading. I'm better off going into the season relatively blind.
