Well to be fair Adrian Martinez, destroyer of worlds is their quarterback.  It would be kind of hard not to be scared.

 

Seriously though.  The FS1 crew gave us a case study in the persistence of media narratives.  Martinez is a dynamic playmaker damnit, and Frost has Nebraska on the right track, despite the fact that they showed no evidence of being fundamentally sound or disciplined.

What I really want to know though is how does Holly Sonders get into her jeans.  Do they paint them on or do they pour her into them?

It's crazy how mediocre Wake Forest is on defense though.  They toss the ball to Dillon on the right hand side and nobody can even reach him until he runs 20 yards.

She looks exactly like every 30-40 year old Sparty woman that I know.  She's probably a school psychologist who is married to a guy in middle management somewhere.  She is probably extremely proud of her MSU alum status, but doesn't realize that her pride comes exclusively from the fact that they've dominated us in football for the last decade.  She probably gets a bit too drunk off of $11.99/bottle wine at parties and outkicks her intellectual coverage and ends up looking like a belligerent fool.  She probably runs a bunch of 5Ks and thinks she is smoking hot by virtue of the fact that she's not fat.  Basically half the women in my social circle.

In Traverse City and haven't gotten mine yet either.  I was in the process of blaming my wife for throwing it out, then I saw this.

How funny will it be if Saban starts declining like two years into this contract?  As a fan, I don't like when my team gets involved with huge multiple year contracts.  Good thing I'm not a bama fan 

07/02/2018 - 3:34pm Traverse City, MI

 

Pros: …

Traverse City, MI

 

Pros:  Beautiful scenery

Hot summers with little rainfall

4 brewpubs for every man, woman and child

Decent cultural and retail options relative to the area

 

Cons: Brutal winter

Real estate costs that make Ann Arbor look reasonable

"Foodie" scene that is both overpriced and substandard

Shitty wages

A populace within the city limits that would rival Ann Arbor's liberalism, while the opinions of the people outside the city limits would make the typical white 1950's Mississippi resident appear enlightened.  In short, the national political divide in a nutshell.

06/27/2018 - 9:21am I would have to imagine that…

I would have to imagine that if traffic is slowing down, then the powers that be have taken note and will be working on a plan of action.  Personally, my visits to the site have decreased substantially to maybe three or four times a day.  At the office I find myself visiting the new website far less often than I visited the old one, and at home at night I don't even check the website, whereas I would check the app several times per evening.  Maybe it will just take some time, but this has to be costing them ad revenues.

06/13/2018 - 8:10pm If you live in the Charter…

If you live in the Charter service area, they have this deal where you pay what works out to an additional $32/month over their base Internet service fee for cable.  You get FSD, BTN, ESPN, FSN, local networks and a bunch of other stuff.  You get one cable box in that price, and no DVR, although you can watch on other TVs via the Charter app on Roku (not available on fire stick though).  Best deal I've seen, plus you get cable reliability (ironically though my cable was down for the first three hours of the MSU game last fall, so I watched on the app).

09/06/2015 - 10:23am As a Traverse City resident, this sounds pretty

As a Traverse City resident, this sounds pretty typical. People up here are always doing "interesting" little things that end up somehow getting noticed and then get media attention. You would almost think that was part of the plan all along. Also, Traverse City Business news just did their annual "40 under 40" feature, and Northern Express just had their "20 most interesting local people" of whatever feature. Through personal knowledge or local hearsay I can tell you that a lot of those people were initially funded by family loans or are currently still receiving regular cash infusions from family members. Must be nice. Many of these people will no doubt consider themselves "self-made".

Kind of reminds me of the rich kids I knew in college who were " putting themselves through college" on informal parental loans with unspecified repayment terms that were actually just ham-fisted attempts to reign in their college spending by creating the illusion that they would need to be paid back.

I could go on and on with this.

Making fun of a guy for getting cancer is never in good taste.  Getting a DUI is subject to ridicule however.  And the glass houses thing.  If that were so, most internet snark would cease to exist immediately.

05/29/2015 - 4:27pm I think it is only fair that

I think it is only fair that Amazon pay state sales tax on their transactions.  If states really want to collect taxes on all online retailers they should band together and create some clearinghouse where retailers can simply and efficiently file all of their various sales taxes in one place.  Othertwise this will be a major compliance issue and many retailers will have trouble keeping up.  

 

The things I buy from Amazon I will continue to buy from Amazon.  Their absolute cost advantage on many items will not be affected much by this.  I have never bought from Amazon solely to avoid paying MI sales tax.  That part was just gravy.

05/27/2015 - 9:09pm People are funny. I tentatively agreed to a job

People are funny. I tentatively agreed to a job offer. Had issues selling house. Job was a GM position. Asked devil who had built company from ground up (and who I would be replacing) and who was by my conservative ballpark estimation making half a million plus annually for approximately a $7,500 annualized housing allowance until I could sell the house and move my family to the new town. He just about blew his top and immediately gave me a take his offer as is or leave it ultimatum. Obviously told him to eat shit in politically correct terms since I still had my job. That was fall 2012. As of Fall 2014 he was still looking to fill the position. Lesson: don't be a cheap fuck in a shit hole town trying to fill a sensitive position.

05/17/2015 - 9:59pm I also love checking in on that cesspool. RCMB

I also love checking in on that cesspool. RCMB really makes me appreciate great Michigan sites like this and TTB. Their recruiting analysis is so shallow. It seems like not one of their recruits has any flaws to their game. Rather, the blue wall has conspired to underrate their commits. Here I see nuanced evaluations of our players. There I see, and I do not exaggerate, statements like "eat it Harblow. Lukusa didn't play stiff when cHoke was after him". That is the closest they can come to acknowledging a criticism of a Sparty commit. The Only Colors is a little more civilized but they also have a hard time offering any insightful analysis that might be construed as objective concerning potential or current Spartans.

I know Mark D is a great coach. While Sparty have a hard time acknowledging that Harbaugh has done anything notable as a coach, we cannot plead that same type of ignorance in regards to their coach. We have lived through this bullshit for the last seven years. Jim Harbaugh took a shit Stanford team from the toilet bowl to the Orange bowl. He basically matched Mark D's career crowning achievement and walked away to accomplish bigger and better things. He did a few things and now he's home.

I am not overly concerned with our record next year. Obviously I hope for the best. But number one for me in 2015 is toughness. Punch Sparty back. Knock them down at the line of scrimmage. Make Connor Cook eat some dirt, and remind those cum stains that they come from a manure scented shithole and maybe they should all just stick to milking cows and designing juice boxes.

04/28/2015 - 2:49pm I imagins that it will not

I imagins that it will not end up costing the NFL anything close to that in additional taxes.  Being that the league is essentially a special intterest group for team owners, I assume that should December 31 (or whenever their year end is) approaches, they can engage in some sort of tax planning to delay payments so that the league itself will usually show a loss, or negligible amounts of income.

I fell in love with if at Touchdown cafe in the late 90s. still love it. I don't know why, but I just love it.

What's really interesting is that in a post starting a discussion about intelligence and football, the OP misuses the phrase "begs the question".

Good thing he was able to release this before Coach K and Duke school Izzo and Sparty yet again.  At least it will have been relevant for a couple of days by that point.

03/26/2015 - 10:35am One of Matt Taibbi's annual

One of Matt Taibbi's annual recommendations in his combine and draft analysis is to tell teams to take the weed guy in the draft.  The thought is that the weed issues seem to cause their draft stock to fall out of proportion to the actual benign nature of their offense  I recall Janoris Jenkins being one of these weed guys, and he is doing pretty well.  

03/21/2015 - 10:44pm I could do all these things....
