11/15/2018 - 12:39pm Z got a "Hook and Hold"…

Z got a "Hook and Hold" flagrant 1, where you loop your arm around someone's arm and tug. It's a point of emphasis this year for officials to look for.

Nova guy was issued a regular personal foul for the shove. Iggy was not penalized.

Best nickname on the team. I call him "Woods" 'cause he brings the wood.

Should it be "yes goal" rather than "no goal"

I was right there with you, I loved hockey fights as a thing. But when 3 enforcers committed suicide the same summer I had to change my tune. The players got bigger, stronger, and trained with boxers. It wasn't just the two biggest guys on a team brawling anymore.

As a goalie, I lament that at 5'11" I was already "too small" to play D1, not that I was good enough to. #TinyJesus forever.  

10/26/2018 - 11:35am The thing that kills me…

The thing that kills me about the NFL is the lack of strategic diversity. Every team (seems to, and I'm MGoBlog Football Knowledgeable) runs the same plays, has the same goals, and most games seem to be coin flips. There's some interesting stuff out there, but no Georgia Tech's just doing crazy stuff. The Wildcat was a rare exception to this in my mind.

Hosting a housewarming party since we moved. Had to schedule it for the bye week since she's such a stressed out fan, we often watch Michigan games at home to deal with the stress better than we would in public.

Gotta figure out the bluetooth on the new soundbar so that we can have music on for the party and football on the TV muted.

This wasn't, and shouldn't have been a 1 day story. But they're doing a great job of making this a 50 day story.

Don't make a 1 day story a 2 day story. This is just being handled horribly by everyone all around.

It's never good to send your players to the hospital. HOWEVA, if one does go to the hospital providing the details on why, what your thinking was, and how you'll be sure not to do it again is beneficial.

Frost said "The workout was X. We were being careful by planning Y. When Z happened, our response was to..."

Picture Durkin's statement: One of our players had a seizure and convulsions after (I don't know the details, but describing the workout). He appeared to be having symptoms of heat stroke. We let him lay on the turf for 1 hour prior to calling EMS.

The whole university didn't do anything for two months after a kid died.

Making cars is hard. Making new technology is hard. Tesla is currently making cars in a tent, undergoing 3 SEC investigations, and having brand new cars lose their bumpers.

I used to shift gears as a kid, mostly prior to cupholders, partially to teach me what was going on. It was fun! I was the "Ben-O-Matic".

08/07/2018 - 10:24am The year was about 2001?…

The year was about 2001? Maybe 2002. I was 13 and my older sister had just gotten her license. She had a hand-me-down 1991 Mazda 626 LX, with 4 angry squirrels under the hood and a 5 speed manual.

Being a great big sister, she asked if I wanted to try driving. Being a Need-For-Speed playing 13 year old (Hot Pursuit 2 on PS2 FTW!) I of course said sure. Our block was a very quiet circle, with no traffic. We headed as far as possible from the access street, and I started it up. Clutch take up was easy, first gear went well, no stall!!

Then I went to upshift from first to second, and didn't get the stick all the way into second gear when I started taking the clutch back out. The spinning of the synchro (commonly refered to as grinding gears) was the most awful sound I had ever heard. Enough for me to clutch, brake, and not try again for a while.

Might be too late for a true Porsche 928 successor (929?). The Panameras are all V6 now, and I think they'd need a 928 to be a V8 up front.
