They banned wrongly inflated footballs because the SEC is trying to be like the NFL: if somone in the SEC rapes or beats someone they can talk about footballs instead. They learned this tactic from politicians.

There are other 529 plans better than the michigan one unless a huge portion of your investment calculus is the tax break you get from paying Michigan state taxes. Even if you're going for the tax break you might be better off by first putting it into this plan for taxes and then rolling it into another state's plan that invests the money more creativly and has cheaper fees. I really like the Utah plan, for example.

To clarify, I don't think the reason I've said is the only reason. I think there are multiple others ones. But I think all sports are a numbers game, and this one has some merit. Also, not teaching my kid to crap kick is something I can fix. The other stuff well...he and America are on their own for that one.

Since you're being that guy, maybe you have some advice about a way too early soccer question.
One of the theories about why the US is disadvantaged is the lack of cultrual default knowledge about absolute basics.
The tl;dr version is; in Europe you might see a lot of kids "throwing like a girl" because the averge adult doesn't model it the right way, and here you have kids kicking the wrong way for the same reasons.
As someone who was good at other sports but always kicked like a girl, is there a basic resource I can look at to learn to do that the right way before I teach my toddler bad habits?
Moment of fatherly pride, he's in the 97% percentile for height and weight, and his motor's always running. I'd like to be helpful if he likes a sport I'm dumb at.

You realize he's marketing to hopeful teenagers and not jaded adults right?

Maybe it wasn't to be funny. Maybe he just you know...likes having a kid.

Their rebuttal should just be a concussion study.

I hit two home runs in one inning when I was a senior in high school. They were the only two I ever hit. My dad said he wasn't sure if it was his kid who did it.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I've gotten to the point||
I've gotten to the point where the more character questions teams have on their roster the less I care about the team and the sport. I used to watch every Lions game, but they had that period where so many players got arrested or charged with things...I was just kind of done. I didn't even check the scores after a while and they never fully got me back. The NFL in general I have a lot of trouble with too.
Maybe because I'm older now, but I just find it harder to cheer for people or organizations I don't respect. I know that teams are going to do what they're going to do anyway because "where else are we gonna get our fix?" but I think if enough people withdraw from things they feel aren't ok then it'll be harder for organizations to leverage us against each other.

I hate these posts. They're lazy, intrusive, and don't add any discussion to the board.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||The low quality of it||
The low quality of it actually is what makes it awesome because it feels more genuine and spontanious. The arrangement would still be great but I'd give so much less of a crap about it if it was shot by a good dp and I had to see it in an overly saccharine "Simpsons" type Dr. Zaius song format.

The basketball recruiting coordinator would mostly just stand in front of prospects' windows holding up a boom box.

Yep. We should all roll over and die and not think about anyting because other people get money for some of the same thinking. If someone is more qualified than us than we are of course stupid and wrong and our opinions should die in a fire.

You are not the only one. I have nothing against the fight. I used to know a Manny fan and was actually looking forward to if it happened when I talked to him years ago. But this excitement seems more media created than "how awesome it would be to actually watch" created.

Based on the voting, if you're looking for others to help you scream to get off someone else's blog's lawn, it seems it's you who is looking in the wrong place.

So right about making the most of your time EE. It seems like she really tried to as well.
Upper Deck made a bsketball card of her. I thought that was pretty cool.

An argument about how other things are crap is not a good endorsement of quality and is a good way to avoid looking at relevant issues.

I love that these people, who wish to claim they're creating an epic song, are so useless and self-centered they're doing everything possible to avoid any actual work on the material.
Working in the film industry, I've definitly been pitched situations where someone's "great idea" is that they'll get someone else to come up with an idea and then they'll just need donations or someone else to find them money to make it happen.
Advice to anyone soon to work on the film industry: if any of you ever meet any of these no value added but credit already subtracted types: run.

My one year old just learned to walk and my wife is tall. One time he pulled a heavy kettlebell few inches. Is there some sort of list I can compare him against?
Do you think he's getting dinged due to his lack of exposure? He hasn't camped yet, but there's soccer at his daycare.
He has yet to verbal because he's preverbal.
Alabama has offererd but it's noncommitable.

It's great how just under a minute into the clip the host asks "How's the song coming?" and in the background someone just blurts out "terrible."
|15 weeks 5 days ago||I dislike anything||
I dislike anything "nation".
I don't think the national athem should be performed like the singer is trying to get a record deal.
I dislike growing calls of remove your hat and stand for "God Bless America." It's not our national anthem, it's a religious song (I have no problem with religion) and since it's the second nationalism song of the day sometimes replacing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame," it feels less like being thankful for a great country and troops who defend it and more like I'm entering propaganda territory.
