Or is Irene Adler super hot?

01/26/2017 - 5:01pm Oh my god yes. I hadn't

Oh my god yes. I hadn't thought about FJM for an eternity until seeing this, but in the back of my head I was chuckling at the thought of gritty grit Eckstein. So much fisking.

01/07/2014 - 1:06pm Recovery Time

I had a herniated disc for years and it finally caught up to me this summer. I went under the knife September 4th for a laminectomy and a microdiskectomy. I was completely out of action for two weeks and spent the next two weeks playing catch-up. I golfed on October 3 (against my doctor's advice) without pain and with full strength. I was cleared to play hockey (non-check) at the beginning of November. I was in physical therapy from October to December and was discharged before Christmas. I'm back to full strength with minimal pain now.

That being said, he's younger and in better shape than I am, though this may be mitigated by the fact that jumping and running on hardwood may be absolute hell on the back (in fact, my herniation came the day after I played ball). 

So....he could definitely be back full strength by Tournament time.

10/07/2013 - 1:36pm Having seen just the board

Having seen just the board title I knew this was going to be about my Alma Mater. During my years in school I believe we won 4 games, all of them my senior year. I went to one football game. It was miserable. Suffice to say we're more of soccer and lacrosse school than football. Those teams actually have tryouts.

 

And if it makes it better (or much, much worse), WJ's fight song is to the tune of Across the Field. Thankfully I had enough beer in college to completely forget how it goes.

Been staring at TSN's Tradecentre all day. Three lines read February 27. This is not what I wanted for my Monday.

Lager. They don't have lagers. Seriously. They don't.

 

08/24/2011 - 10:56pm Ashley's does NOT have everything you want

You can't get a good lager there. There are zero real actual good German or German-style lagers on their extensive menu. Incredibly disappointing. Always bothered me about that place.

So like....can the NCAA just accept OSU's self-imposed sanctions, which admit to major violations, then turn around this Fall, issue a new Notice of Allegations regarding the stuff SI turned up, call it another major violation of the same issues previously stated and give OSU the death penalty?

04/15/2011 - 2:17pm This was already posted.

You should check the MGoBoard so you don't post dumb shit we've already read, Brian.

02/11/2011 - 10:02pm "If a goal is scored on the

"If a goal is scored on the delayed penalty by the non-offending team, the first
minor penalty shall be imposed as well as all other infractions regardless of
whether a goal is scored."

 

Evidently, I don't check the NCAA rules often enough. +1 to you, sir.

 

And yes, I did spend the better part of the past 8 minutes downloading the NCAA Hockey Rules .pdf. Rule 4-9-b, pg. HR-49 for those playing along at home.

02/11/2011 - 9:48pm Fine, it was a trip. But last

Fine, it was a trip. But last I checked (and I check quite often), a goal scored on a delayed penalty waives the penalty.

02/11/2011 - 9:47pm I haven't been able to catch

I haven't been able to catch too many games this year on tv, but holy crap I understand what Brian is referring to when he said this team can't score goals like they used to. I miss Chad Kolarik.

02/11/2011 - 9:43pm HOW THE FUCK IS THERE A GOAL

HOW THE FUCK IS THERE A GOAL AND A PENALTY. Awesome commentary by BTN here. We don't even know what the penalty is. This is horseshit.

01/25/2011 - 12:22am Thanks, couldn't find it on

Thanks, couldn't find it on the board.

01/17/2011 - 2:49pm ARGHHHH

The goal was WAIVED, or WAVED OFF. Specifically, the goal was "washed out" by giving the "washout signal".

05/12/2010 - 2:42pm Re: touching the puck vs.

Re: touching the puck vs. clearing the puck in the Miami game, if the referee said he blew the whisle due to Reichard (Knapp? Was that Knapp I don't recall) having control of the puck and thus ending the play on the delayed penalty, he is a bald-faced liar. There needs no rule change there - the ref simply needs to not be a raging idiot.

OTOH - If the referee blew the whisle because he lost sight of the puck (due to the goaltender having it moslty covered), the whistle was the correct call.

In conclusion: no rule change, yes raging idiot change.

03/29/2010 - 1:12pm If you don't see the puck,

If you don't see the puck, don't assume. That cost the deserving team the game.

I'm not playing devil's advocate here, I'm just a referee. Once you lose sight of the puck, you blow the whistle. That's the rule.

That being said, the referee was in a terrible position and he should have been able to see the puck.

ND 08 hurt so much more. We were the 1 seed. We were the best team in the country. We had the Hobey winner. Billy was solid. We torched Niagara and Clarkson.

This was a good team, sure. They made a terrific run and fought their asses off. It was a shitty way to end it, sure. But really, we shouldn't have even been here. So for the first time I can remember watching Michigan play hockey, I'm surprisingly okay with it.

Next year will be great.

The game IS being carried on MASN. I just called up their office and the programming lady said they were carrying the game (although she couldn't figure out how to pronounce 'Bemidji').

Did anyone else notice that the author described Coach as a "round peg in a square hole"? To the best of my knowledge, a round peg will ALWAYS fit in a square hole.

Except it's not sudden death overtime...It's sudden death overtime followed by a shootout. Which takes the fun out of overtime.

I think the surprise was that the "hate" and "love" votes were as close as they were. I had suspected that the majority of this blog's readership was sternly against piped in music, and, like Brian, was surprised at the reaction.

As you can see by my mgopoints total, my opinions on the matter were clearly taken to be incorrect.
