Brock Mealer story is on now on ESPNU because the USA-AUS world championship lax game is delayed in Denver due to weather...

Yep - the goodbye song coupled with that damned hurricane warning flag was just brutal (it was in '88, by the way).

Tomorrow's game is going to be a dogfight. I have Germany winning 1-nil.

I haven't gotten mine yet.

Heh - "dong punch" is a perfect term for that Miami game. I was at the ND game in South Bend the week before, and while there, I, being stupid and sitting in the ND student section, got taunted a lot (you don't say!). The real culprits were two a-holes wearing Wisconsin gear who said they were on the Wisconsin football team (Wisconsin did not play that weekend). I laughed at them, and warned them what was going to happen to them in a couple of weeks in Madison, never mind the result of the Michigan-Notre Dame game.
So, we lose to ND and Miami, play and beat Wake Forest in a boring game, and head up to Madison. We pounded Wisconsin, 62-14.
OK, enough - best game I attended that we won IN ANN ARBOR was the UVA game in '95. I was so spoiled by winning during my time at U-M that a lot of the games were not that exciting. One fun game was when we beat Illinois in the aforementioned '88 season to clinch the B1G title. We rushed the field and picked up pieces of the Astroturf.
Best game I attended anywhere was the 2000 Orange Bowl, despite a massive hangover.

Got the email about the shirt I wanted, and then I got the email for the download. Downloaded to my Kindle Fire, and looking forward to reading!
Thank you, gentlemen!

A buddy of mine loved Buenos Aires. He was there for about a year for business, and he said BA was way better than Rio. In fact, he liked Sao Paolo better than Rio. Beautiful women galore in BA.

Both squads are afraid of a repeat of yesterday lol

I'm going to make a conscious effort to enjoy victories a lot more than I have in the past, and I am going to try to not let losses bum me out as much.
With that being said, I have nothing new to add -- the keys are marked improvement on the o-line, Gardner's decision-making, and interior d-line play. I see 8-4.

LOL - from now on, I'm using zulu time.

I wonder what the odds were on the 7-1 without Khedira scoring...just insane.

I was at the Iowa game too - coldest game they've ever had there, even though it was a beautiful, sunny day. I nearly got my ass kicked when we scored the pick-six.

Mein Gott!! I cannot believe this - poor Brazil :(
|4 days 19 hours ago||I'm with you, but my gut is||
I'm with you, but my gut is telling me that Brazil is going to play out of their skulls, with or without Neymar and Silva. This is why I don't make money gambling.
|4 days 20 hours ago||I think the home-field||
I think the home-field advantage for Brazil gives them enough to match up with Germany. Then again, the immense pressure (really never seen anything like it in sports, actually) may backfire on the Brazilians.
|4 days 21 hours ago||I, like most people who had||
I, like most people who had success in sports (I was an all-American swimmer), hated losing more than I enjoyed winning. Losing to MSU is the WORST.
|4 days 21 hours ago||When I was at U-M, we went||
When I was at U-M, we went 0-4 against ND, 2-2 against MSU and 3-1 against OSU. It took a long time for me to rank OSU higher than ND as far as hatred goes. The 12-year Cooper era didn't help me learn to friggin' hate the Buckeyes. I hated MSU from the start (7-interception game; Desmond tripped on 2-pt conversion).

Saw on Twitter that Canada beat Kuwait 91-0 or something like that.

I go to a Five Guys near my mom's house in Northern Virginia whenever I'm out there, but I haven't been to one anywhere else. It's pretty good after a night of swilling beer.
Smashburger - disgusting. It was like eating (and I ate about three bites) a block of salt. Completely unacceptable, and I like salty food.

Campbell getting some good runs for CRC, but it seems that Oranje are going to break CRC with a counter here soon.
|1 week 19 hours ago||I've got Oranje 3 - 1 CRC in||
I've got Oranje 3 - 1 CRC in this game. I will be rooting for los Ticos, but Holland is flat-out ridiculously good. I don't see Holland losing to Argentina in the semi-final.

I was at a sports bar outside of Des Moines, where I got laughed out of the joint by a combination of Iowa and Iowa State fans. Iowa beat Northern Illinois that day, and Iowa State lost to Kent State the night before, and so you can imagine how humiliating it was for me to get mocked heartily by those douchebags.

So he didn't transfigurate into pure energy after his senior year (per what Brian said would happen)?

This may suck as a comparison, but if you ask anyone but us Michigan fans about the charge that JMo drew late in the game against Tennessee in the NCAA tournament, they would say that was a flop. I thought it was a clear charge and then JMo expertly made sure there was no doubt he was charged.
|1 week 6 days ago||Herrera almost got himself in||
Herrera almost got himself in a lot of trouble, taking a little physical snipe at RVP when Herrera was bitching at the refs at the end of the game. But, yes, all in all, he's been instrumental to Mexico's success in this tournament, and good for some serious laughs.

Hmmmph...should've been a PK there, but Mexico with an injury for their trouble.

It's part of the massive sportsmanship effort FIFA has. Having kids with the players has a psychological effect (most of the time) to calm people down, players and fans both.
