It's pretty unlikely, but a friend of mine had it happen to him playing soccer, so... weird things happen sometimes.

At least where I am at, DirecTV's customer service is outstanding. Looking into bundling with AT&T's internet, which we already have, and as I was just robbed I need a new cell phone and neither my wife or I are on a contract so I might also look into bundling with wireless, although that's dicey.
When I moved into this place, Comcast didn't have HD wired up and AT&T Uverse wasn't available yet either, DirecTV was the only realistic option, but I've liked them. They are indeed pricey, although if you call and complain you can often get reductions and free stuff.
If you have to have Comcast for internet though I suspect your best deal is going to be with Comcast's cable service.

"Perry is a couple inches taller than Dileo; otherwise this looks like a pretty tight fit, even down to the fact that I might complain he is underutilized what with all the tight ends."
And also even down to the fact that he's wearing the same number

If there’s 11 guys on that defense then you can count on that defense being a fantastic defense.
As we learned last year, it is fairly important to have 11 guys on the field ARRRRGGGGGHHHHH

All the circular multiuse stadiums from the 70s or so were terrible. Veterans, Three Rivers, Riverfront, et al., they were all lousy.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Well, you're hitting my||
Well, you're hitting my favorite of the brewpubs as far as atmosphere if you're going to Dark Horse. Since you're already going to Marshall you may as well swing through Kzoo to Bell's - they sometimes have stuff at their "General Store" next to the pub that they either don't sell elsewhere or only sell in Michigan. A couple blocks from Bell's is a beer bar called Kalamazoo Beer Exchange, which is unique with their dynamic pricing. Every 15 minutes the prices change based on who's buying what. A few times they have a market crash where for 15 minutes everything is its lowest possible price. Quite a few of their taps are locals typically. At the very least it's an amusing concept, and a place to try some other Michigan beers.
In GR, Vivant and Founders are the heavy hitters. I liked Hideout, it's definitely in an odd spot. Hopcat is an excellent beer bar with good food.
Since you're driving up from NW Indiana (as you're going by Munster) Greenbush is less than a mile off the highway well before you'd turn off to go up to GR. If I remember correctly The Livery is also before that too, farther off the highway, but good beers.
I know much less about newer ones as it's been a while since I rolled around the state visiting places (live in Chicago).

Been great reports on him in the summer circuit so expect his rankings to go up considerably as the services update.

Given their defense's performance in some big games in recent years it's pretty appropriate that Nebraska's unis look like a truck ran over them.

Over 10 years ago I paid $600 a month ($1200 total, a 2 BR shared with a friend) that was furnished, a few blocks away from the old Blimpy Burger. But that was over 10 years ago, and these new digs are much nicer.

I'm sure the notiion of "it must be the cell service" came from some high-priced consultant who got paid a pile of money to come up with ideas to increase attendance.
My summary of that article was "WSJ shocked to find out that most important thing to college football fans who attend games is the college football game they are attending"
|6 weeks 3 days ago||I think if you see what Tyus||
I think if you see what Tyus himself was saying, and then what happened, there's a pretty strong inference that Tyus wanted to go to Michigan and his parents basically made him go to Syracuse. Now why that is, we won't know unless someone spills the beans at some point, but Syracuse hasn't exactly been on the up-and-up (see, e.g., their current sanctions) so wondering what exactly transpired there isn't unreasonable.
And I get the feeling that whatever was going on, Tyus had nothing to do with it himself. I think if it were solely up to him, he never even would have decommitted.

That's only a problem if you eat flour tortillas. If you only eat tacos, or buy them for home use, you just get the corn ones, which don't have that problem and are healthier in pretty much all respects than flour as well as much tastier. No one's making tortilla chips out of flour tortillas for good reason.

Man, it must suck to have your tortilla options be Mission or Azteca. El Milagro, Atotonilco, Nuevo Leon, we have an embarassment of tortilla riches in Chicago.

The Kings GM (well, VP of basketball ops, they currently don't have a GM) is Vlade Divac, who is not Joe Dumars, but might as well be.

Hell, FIGJAM's money games in practice rounds still go on and aren't exactly a secret. One reason he and Keegan Bradley wanted to play Ryder Cup together (and did) was they regularly played together in those practice rounds.
And in the old days of the tour hustling on the side with money games was really common, since they didn't exactly make massive amounts of money the way the top guys do now.

My main problem with Adidas was the piss-poor quality of some of the unis they provided. Unless the "tearaway basketball jersey" was intentional.

There's hardly any flat spots on the course (I played a few years back), the dizziness is bad enough for a sport where balance is fairly important, but walking that course cannot be helping.
Also, it's a fun course even for not good golfers like myself. Unfortunately they've raised the the price quite a bit from when I took my dad out there and to Bandon.

It's a violation of copyright. Source: I am an IP attorney.
Rationalize it however you want, it's still pretty much the same as stealing physical property. If you like it, pay the 1 dollar and own it.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||He was the owner and he||
He was the owner and he didn't give a shit what any of us thought or did. This is an owner that actually said that Stanley Cups were too expensive. Literally the only things we could do is stop showing up and hope eventually he'd start actually losing enough money to give a shit, and pray for his death. Wirtz died just before the '07-'08 season. Attendance increased by 4000 a game that season, and then up to averaging a sellout the following year.
You Lions fans have had it GREAT with the Fords compared to the Hawks under Bill Wirtz. Imagine that now that the Lions make the playoffs and the best players are expensive, the owner mandates that they trade or let go of Megatron, Stafford, and anyone else expensive, including trading a fan-favorite star who grew up in the Detroit area to the Bears or Packers. Because that's what Wirtz did in the 90s. Out went a 25 year old Roenick, out went an in-his-prime Belfour, and then out went Chelios, the fan favorite, born and raised in the Chicago suburbs, to the Red Wings. That's when attendance started to drop from consistent sellouts/near-sellouts they'd had the previous 15-ish years.
