7:35 on CBS Sports. Finishing the sweep for the weekend would be a huge step towards the #1 seed for the tourney.

Go Blue. Beat Miami of Ohio.

Go Blue! Finally splurged on the cable package just to get this game.  Also, to start a saturday night drinking thread if one isn't started, I'm drinking Weihenstephaner Original.  Very tasty. 

Towards the second period i will probably moves towards bourbon and coke.

The system has a mild civilizing effect. It used to be even better; in the past, people's upvotes added points and downvotes subtracted points, so the board could be a lot more self-regulating. It also led to some brilliant negbangs. Now, the duty of de-pointifying falls on the shoulders of the poor mods.

Reluctant power.  Or laziness when it comes to unpaid labor.  Either way, respekt sir.

I don't know why voting hasn't been fixed yet.  It appears to have popular support.  It must be a technical hangup.

Civ pro was one of my favorite classes (admin law too); I've always been agnostic as to subtantive issues.  Maybe it's that John Dingell quote.  Which explains my interest in procedural/meta issues, such as regulating opinions here. 

I know nothing about website maintenance, etc...   But I think you should use whatever power you have to get this moderating problem fixed.  It's in your own interest to do so, as you noted. 

Christ this post is so unnecessary.  I think I'll continue soaking my liver in vodka.

I think it is Bolivian, not Bolivia, because someone's auto check changed 'Oblivion' to 'Bolivian' and it stuck.  as in "...sent to Bolivian..."

...and I haven't said it yet, but glad to have you on MGoBlog, RollDamnTide.  You seem like good people.  I learned to be a Michigan fan from my Dad, whose OTHER favorite team has always bean Alabama. So I inherited Bama as a default favorite SEC team.

Some people have been around hockey for their entire lives, like our friend the announcer, and still aren't aware the A stands for Alternate captian, not assistant.
