I'm the last person to rush to judgment when it comes to situations like this. But anyone who watches this team today should clearly see that Hoke is CLUELESS and that no amount of time could lead to more positive results. How much more evidence do you need?
You're being over-analytical.

Even if KC wins the division, we still don't care where Oakland finishes. Seattle is the first team left out of a wildcard, and we are 4 1/2 games up on them. Still, we DEFINITELY want to win the division - screw a 1 game wild card play-in.

If you want to be rowdy, go to Duffy's. If you're more laid back, go to RockIt or Matilda's. The neighborhood for RockIt Wrigleyville (Clark Street) has more goin' on than the one further south.

I didn't even know they were closing! I need to get back to Chicago before October and have one last delicious gourmet dog.

I think the addition of the "reply to [comment #]" is a nice touch. It would be better if it actually listed the proper comment # I replied to, though.
I'm guessing that the comment # that is referenced is the original comment # as of the time that comment was originally posted, and as new posts get added to the string those #s change, causing the references to be inaccurate.

You can't say minor leaguers don't get huge salaries and benefits. By and large that is true, but the signing bonuses for 1st round talent in baseball, for instance, can be 7 figures.

I love them both. I think The Wire is can't miss, though. There is a lot more action episode to episode than in Boardwalk Empire. I also love that each new season of The Wire has a brand new setting and backdrop based on what part of Baltimore life the writers focus on for that particular season.

That's because points expire one year after the original posting. It's quite possible you have had 60-70 for an entire year

Clearly, Blake Countess has been to the Brady Hoke School for Handling the Media

You know that's exactly 9 months after Valentines Day. Just sayin'...

Then why is there a capital "T" after the comma? And if it is a quote within a quote, there should be 'these little guys' around the internal quote.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||This is not just a move for||
This is not just a move for this season. Jhonny has a club option for next year at a pretty high price, where Iglesias is locked up for several years - they are signing what they consider to be their SS of the future.
If Jhonny's looming suspension wasn't a possibility, DB was going to explore something like this trade in the offseason. The looming suspension just pushed up the timeline and forced the Tigers' hand now. If he's not suspended, you just have the benefit of a really good utility infielder to spell the 3rd, 2nd, and SS positions for the remainder of the season, and have Iglesias locked into a starting SS role next year.

I never thought his content was very good either. When I read his stuff on MGoBlog, you could tell he didn't proofread his own posts before they went on the front page, and his writing was never anything more than encyclopedic. Very happy Ace (who I liked a lot on thewolverineblog.com before he came here) replaced him.

Sounds like the Big Chill to me. A group of friends from UM get together for a friend's funeral. One of the friends is a big movie star. It was kinda like a gen X breakfast club in that its about the relationships unfolding with the characters, but they're dealing with different issues because the characters are older.

Just because he's a terrible (terrible, terrible, terrible) defensive coordinator doesn't make him a bad analyst. He clearly isn't much of a leader - a must to be effective at the D1 level - but he doesn't accumulate the experience he has without knowing a lot about what it takes to be an effective defense.
This might be a good hire for them.

Re: #2 - Cups open side up or open side down:
The answer is both, but alternating. Stemmed wine glasses and most drinking glasses are wider at the top than they are at the base. If you alternate the glasses up/then down, you are not wasting space in the cupboard and a shelf that could hold 9 glasses with a 3 x 3 configuration could potentially hold 16 with a 4 x 4 configuration (depending on the dimensions of the glass of course).
That's a 78% increase in utilized capacity, and I didn't even need a stupid packaging engineering degree to figure it out.

If it is a derecho, brace yourself. We got one here in central Virginia last summer and we had 100+ mile an hour winds for about 10 minutes, then it was gone. The damage was catastrophic, though. Nobody had power for 3 days, and many people in rural areas didn't get it back for a week and a half.
Do anything you can to prepare

It's surprising to me how excited people are about this second installment. The first movie was a big letdown for me - it felt like Star Wars Episode I sometimes with the juvenile scenes at the beginning. I will watch this one...after it gets released to video.

His decision date is before the BBQ. The recruiting roundup states that he will be visiting MSU, Michigan, and OSU one last time before the decision.

What he's saying is true, but you're right too. Ben Verlander was drafted in a higher slot in this year's draft, but the Tigers also drafted him out of highschool (2010 I believe) in a round that was later than 36.

Plus, imagine a Green & White backfield. We'll have Sparty cheering "Go Green/Go White" which will inadvently Uber-Hype both Brady and Derrick, and they'll both have the games of their careers when we visit Spartan Stadium in 2016.

I'm gonna upvote you to take away the 'trolling' tag, because I know from listening this morning that the Matt Foley reference was first brought up by Hoke himself the first time he was on Mike & Mike.
Plus, come on, there is a resemblance. Even the man himself thinks so.

I have this card too. So you know, it applies to grocery stores but not "big box" stores like Costco and Sam's club.
I think it's a great card.
