Pros:

300…

Wenatchee, WA

 

Pros:

300 days of sunshine

Amazing outdoors and mountains 

Prime whitewater rivers just a short drive

All of the Pacific NW is within driving distance (Seattle/Vancouver/Portland, Oregon Coast, etc)

Great fruit

Great wine

Great beer

Legal marijuana (if you’re into that)

Fiber to most homes (1GB symmetrical, yes please!) thanks to PUD

No state income tax

Cons:

Pretty hot summers/cold winters (I miss my Seattle temperate zone)

Way overpriced housing (seems to be universal to Washington)

Definitely Zion NP is my favorite so far. Yosemite has far too many people and for that reason it’s probably near the bottom of my list. Grand Canyon NP is awesome - got a non-commercial permit to raft the Colorado through it next year so that might take over number 1 at that point.

04/12/2018 - 4:33pm All I know is they have

All I know is they have talked about “spinning off” cable systems (wherein it’s a new company but they retain a large portion of it) when they wanted to purchase Time Warner so as not to be too big. Call it what you will, that seems like a pretty obvious case of trying to maintain influence while not running afoul of the government and anti-trust laws.

04/12/2018 - 3:56pm Midco is 49% owned by Comcast

Midco is 49% owned by Comcast so not that surprising. (owning “minority” stakes in companies is one of the ways Comcast has major influence but stays out of the monopoly crosshairs)

This is why diversity matters.

Who is the comedian that voted for Michigan State? Did he just screw up and really meant Michigan?

08/01/2017 - 1:02pm Range

My only issue with EVs is the range. For those who drive a lot or are in more rural areas, 200 mile range just will not cut it. Once battery technology can push that range out the 350/400 miles then we are in business. Especially with Tesla's new solar shingles.

05/01/2017 - 4:52pm Custom apparel

Those custom pullovers the team was rocking are badass. It's not often you see a company create something exclusive like that which they don't try to monetize to the general public. Very cool.

01/30/2017 - 3:55pm Can sports writers write

Can sports writers write about sports AND politics though? Can they be separated? I ask the question because we often tell people that don't like certain board topics (jerseys, recruiting, etc.) to just. It click on that link. Do we have that same policy for our writers? If a writer for MGoBlog wants to write about politics should he just get another blog or do we feel they need to stay out of it entirely? I think it's an interesting topic that people can discuss in a civil manner - I suspect there's plenty of agreement between people of differing political ideologies on this topic.

01/22/2017 - 7:43pm Tom Brady with 60 postseason

Tom Brady with 60 postseason touchdown passes - Number 1 by far. The closest to him is actually Joe Montana with 45. That's just insane dominance.

Pretty much sold out everywhere. I have the gray one and wanted to get the blue one for Christmas and most places including Nike only had small or medium.

Seeing him on screen plays - I think he can be very effective in that role. There are some backs (James White) who almost exclusively catch out of the backfield in the NFL and I think Isaac could be very good at that job.

I read the title and thought Harbaugh was talking about the artist for a second. It wouldn't have surprised me.

I thought that nobody could stand Harbaugh for very long? This "30-year friendship" must be a mistake somehow.

Does anyone have any good "cord-cutter" solutions for watching games on BTN? I have Comcast but being on the West Coast they don't have BTN so...

Former UM player Graham Brown. Played against him when he was a freshman at Mio and then years later after he graduated from UM I played against him in a church league pickup game.

Also, ran against Ryan Shay when he was a senior (I was a freshman) - I've never seen anyone run like that before or since. It was sad to see he'd passed.

So the underinfated balls were re-inflated at halftime just before the Patriots went on a 28-0 run? Talk about fury signifying nothing!!

Also, props to those really smart guys in that other thread!

I've always felt everyone was overreacting to this anyway. So he's young with not a lot of experience, everyone has to have a "first job"

I feel as if this might be a similar situation to "Spygate." Everyone deflates their balls to a degree and Indy just complained to the league about it first knowing the impression it gives the Patriots. Clearly there is some messing around with the air pressure on all teams, Aaron Rogers was just complaining that he doesn't get to keep them the way he wants them all the time. 

01/20/2015 - 11:52pm Disclaimer: I am a Patriots

Disclaimer: I am a Patriots fan. 

If they were deflated on purpose by someone in the organization against league rules then I think there should definitely be some punishment. I don't think this in any way affected the outcome of the game though. Further, wouldn't it be easy to eliminate this as a possibility by simply having both teams use the same balls which are in the sole possesion of the refs like the K balls used for kickoffs?

I'd much rather a setup where both teams get a shot, but the current system is certainly better than the old one.

01/19/2015 - 9:01pm I'm sure I'm joining everyone

I'm sure I'm joining everyone else in saying this but "Shots fired at Nebraska" should be a headline reserved only for actual emergencies where there is a gunman on campus. 

01/18/2015 - 6:44pm That's all well and good but

That's all well and good but you don't live in Seattle where you have to hear their fans talk for the next 2 weeks (at least).
