that's unfortunate, but at least the interest is there on both sides

I would group East Grand Rapids separately from Ada and Forest Hills just because they are so different, and both are great depending on what you are looking for.
EGR is going to have a more urban feel with the ability to walk to a lot of unique local shops and restaurants. In that way it is more similar to living in Ann Arbor. You are also [generally] going to pay more per square foot than if you go further east to Ada/Cascade/Forest Hills, and property taxes are more than 50% higher.
Ada/Cascade are more suburban. You don't walk to the market, you drive to Meijer or a close Spartan Store. I would classify homes here as more affordable but you give up the urban kitch if that is your thing. For reference, a year ago I closed on a 2,500ft, 4 bedroom 3 1/2 bath with a finished basement in a developed neighborhood in Ada for $290K. Also a great public school district - Forest Hills is one of the best of the state and I would say on the same level as East Grand Rapids schools from a reputation standpoint (some in EGR may not agree ;)
I love Greater Grand Rapids just because the downtown area has so much more to do and places to visit than even 10 years ago. I also believe recession proof due to the huge presence of the medical community in this area.

Thanks for the refresher, I had never seen the detail on Hart and Jamie. I found this final paragraph interesting. A reminder that time/greatness will heal all wounds.

The post I always remember for you was the one where you tried to convince everyone that the order of operations were open to interpretation in that algebraic equation that was posted on the board. You against the world.
Edit: wasn't you, was wlubd. Not sure why I thought it was you. Still, that thread devolved quick - worth revisiting.

I never trusted Tim Kawasaki. I only trust John Yamaha for my rumor-mongering tidbits.

Everybody here is saying OSU won't get in because they are comparing all the resumes on paper. I feel the committee will use the so-called "eye test" and pick OSU.

I just don't see the committee using that line of reasoning. I think they compare OSU, Baylor, and TCU and conclude that at a neutral site OSU today would take care of business against both of the Big 12 teams. And OSU makes it in as the #4.

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 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.

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 37 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.
