Now for some real laughs, who I think were the defining acts of each decade:
50's - Elvis
60's - Beatles
70's - Led Zeppelin
80's - Michael Jackson, Madonna, or U2
90's - U2, Pearl Jam
00's - hell if I know...I was fully rejecting popular culture at this point (meaning, I wasn't listening to the radio)
10's - see 00's above

I loved the performance by our guys. Great hope for the rest of the season - GO BLUE

Exactly how events like this should be handled. Our house had some what I would call "old souls" who were constantly policing the parties we had in order to prevent any BS like destruction or drunken/drug-induced idiocy from occurring. Now these guys were probably higher than kites, I must admit, but they were respected for what they did. The best was at our chapter meetings when one or two of them would give an "incident report" from the festivities the last week - it was always hilarious, but there certainly was some public shaming going on that showed how serious the risk management aspect of running a fraternity was.
When one member had to tell everyone that he was going to be going through a background check for employment with the feds, the risk management guys basically turned into the Gestapo, making sure that no "criminal" evidence of our shenanigans was visible in the house (well, in the common areas). The guy got the job.

Nice - I went to an Alpha Phi formal, and we didn't trash the place. I went to a DG formal, and we didn't trash the place. I worked at Chi Omega as a bus-boy, and guess what, they didn't trash that mansion either.
So, I'm going to blame the guys on this one!

You can take the boy out of Long Island, but you can't take the Long Island out of the boy, especially in rural Michigan.

For a good laugh, look at the stats of Florida's starting line-up so far in their game against LSU. Horford - why did you forsake us?

If these guys have the bug I had starting on NYE for about two+ weeks, I cannot imagine that they are even 50%. I wasn't really sick per se, but I had zero energy for about a week. A top-flight athlete would be seriously impeded by that. I had headaches, aches and pains, and an occasional spiking fever, but the worst was being completely fatigued.

Will sweeping (I hope) Wisconsin in hockey this weekend make up for the war crime that will occur at Crisler Saturday?

Yeah, I'll take this rotation. I do think seven years for Scherzer is way too long, but we'll see. Sad to see Clippard go - he was a good reliever.

Seattle / over
Seattle is super-dangerous at home, and I think their defense will own the Pack. I look for Lynch to rush for 100+ with two TD's. Wilson is unspectacular, but mistake-free. Seahawks defense/ST score a TD.
New England / under
NE beat the snot out of Indy at Indy earlier in the season, for what it's worth. I think the Pats win by two scores in a dull affair.

I predict a big game for Dawkins and Irvin. Walton will play 38 minutes, with 8 assists, 7 rebounds and 14 points.
