Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.

Zingerman's doesn't make 'off' sandwiches very often.
|1 day 12 hours ago||Gah!||
You're right, dangit.
I probably should have said the six comes on a Peppers return when NU punts from Michigan's 39. With 9 seconds left in the game. And...up by one. That's plausible. Right?

Touchdown, safety, field goal, game ending pick-six. I think that equals 18?

Sorry, I'm wrong! I think the game will actually be at 2:30. BKK is 11 hours ahead of Michigan.

This is it exactly. When Kermit started tweeting about his love life in order to promote the show, it was confirmed that this has precious little to do with the Muppets I grew up with. Where else have we recently seen dumb promotional gimmicks bastardizing something that never needed changing? If it ain't broke, break it, I guess.

Very glad to see Dr. Kutcher and team exonerated. They deserved so much better than they got throughout that fiasco.

This is alarming because brain science says we learn more from our mistakes than from our successes. Your statement would seem to point to a serious hindrance to learn for any and all leaders.

Yup. And if they needed a picture of the stadium while empty, there's probably a file photo of last year's Utah game they could have used.

Looking like a good Friday for disc golf.

I'm a little surprised that the interviewer didn't recognize that when Jim Harbaugh says, "you might have walked up late," the appropriate response is to run the stadium steps.

Free music, no BYOB, but there's a beer garden and food vendors. The vibe is righteous. Stop by Ray's Red Hots and treat yourself to a Polish, Chicago style on a toasted bun.

As a Packers fan from Ann Arbor, I also love this pick.

"Carrie & Lowell" is beautiful and devastating. Hoping to see the show on Monday.

Thanks for posting this (sad) update. What an incredible gift she gave these last months of her life. She really did more living in her short time on earth than most will ever do.

Nine episodes on Showtime next year.

They called it Muppets Tonight. It was hosted by a big purple guy with pink dreads named Clifford. They tried to mix the old Muppets variety show with sort of a Tonight Show backdrop. I really wanted to like it -- I was in college at the time and Muppets held a place of reverence in my heart. In the end, it felt like watching a disappointing sequel to a favorite old film.
I'll be looking forward to seeing what they do with this one, though, because I'm a sucker.

The museum sounds like a good time. I'll see if I can convince my son to do that with me.

Mike Birbiglia is great. I recommend his movie Sleepwalk With Me. So does every NPR weekend listener.

It is great to get informative recaps of the softball games. Nice job with that!
As for me, I feel like when we refer to female athletes by their first names in situations where we wouldn't with male athletes*, we undermine what they're doing on the field by making it cute. First names are how you refer to little girls on the playground. Last names are for athletes who are better at sports than I am.
*I understand there are exceptions. See Denard, for example.
