Hey Nineteen
That's Aretha Franklin
She don't remember
The Queen of Soul
It's hard times befallen
The sole survivors
She thinks I'm crazy
But I'm just growing old


This will now become more relevant every year.  RIP GOAT

How do you upvote on this web machine?

Also create variable business models. It’s never one size fits all for customers. Segment your potential customers out and figure out what their value points are and modify your business model for each differently. Learning each customer groups’ WTP (willingness to pay) is the most valuable thing you can figure out.

02/19/2018 - 3:24pm Yes

Yes. It’s going to suck but just keep showing up and you’ll be successful. Consulting is a numbers game. 9 touches per customer before you can get them to even think of paying. Hundreds of potentials for every client. Go to every networking and conference you can. Learn how to sell yourself is the most useful skill any business person can learn.

Did I mention it will suck? You’ll want to give up often. Maybe every morning. Just keep showing up

Refugees from the Soviet Union; settled in Ann Arbor when I started elementary school.  It took a while for my Dad to learn the rules of the game, but once he did he transfered his love of Soccer to Michigan football.

I grew up with it injected into my blood; not born with the blood.

03/13/2017 - 11:55am was there

was there Thursday and Sunday with my daughter.  The crowd on Sunday was extremely loud, involved and I'm 100% sure had an impact on the game. Coach B noted the crowd twice in his speeches after the game. 

I know it's only a conference tournament, but for some reason this felt bigger....

02/28/2017 - 12:08am yes

you actually think video games are bad for you. you also probably still wish we could go back to the good ol' days of WWII and man wish we could get those coal mines up and running again because they were good for us.


Am I close? either way i'm done with you.  stupidity isn't worth engaging.  When you dig deeper than 3 googles into a topic, then you can speak.  Until then, your opinion is less than worthless.

02/27/2017 - 10:59pm great job googling

great job googling; again I would recommend you STFU before you continue embarassing yourself.


you know nothing of what you speak.  ESPN has fired a million people and is dropping business lines left and right and the ONLY vertical they started last year from scratch was eSports.  But because you're so wise, you probably know more than ESPN and Disney.

02/27/2017 - 10:15pm honestly

honestly you have no idea what you're talking about. I would STFU and learn before making ridiculous claims like "doesn't encourage intellect" 

the kids playing these games are I would guess the top performers in their schools and increidlby gifted athletes.  Their neuro-placticity and hand-eye coordination would rival any professional athlete and would put you to shame.  

yes, they're probably smarter than you.  Probably.  But certainly they wouldn't make idiotic comments about other sports they know nothing about.

01/19/2017 - 5:13pm think of it

think of it like 5v5 rugby played on a screen and the goal is to kill the other team's base

01/19/2017 - 5:12pm good answer

this is a very good answer; i have nothing constructive to add

01/19/2017 - 4:07pm sure

sure, ok.  twitch account?

01/19/2017 - 4:06pm dammit

Dammit! I have more skills other than just making banners.  Why is it everyone just wants me for my hot, hot banners.

The answer is as soon as Brian lets us replace that hideous banner again.

01/19/2017 - 4:06pm I understand

I understand this may be a snarky question but I'll answer it anyway:

League is an increidbly strategic game.  The purpose is obviously to win (your team of 5 beats the other team of 5), but the amount of work and training it takes to play at the highest level goes way beyond just hand eye coordination and mechanics.  

01/19/2017 - 4:03pm 1 in 4

1 in 4 millenials plays or watches eSports; the average hockey and baseball fan is in their 50s.  You do the math.....

01/19/2017 - 3:39pm i do esports

I have an eSports Analytics startup focused first on League of Legends (which is this game they'll be playing)


Go ahead... AMA (ask me anything)

Ok; that's damning evidence. Now what?

I'm not saying nothing should be done, but what recourse is there? Will anyone in the B10 take responsibility for this? I doubt it.

11/10/2016 - 10:07am What is with the content

What is with the content police on this site!?! Honestly I don't get why anyone suggests to anyone else what not to post? You know it takes way longer to reply to them not to post something than it does to... oh you know... just move on to something else.

I mean the real estate is free. You didn't get charged for it. Electrons don't die if you don't click on something. What is the deal?

Yes. I'm aware of the irony.

09/29/2016 - 3:14pm badger vs wolverine…

This fight features two of our readers favorite combatants, the Honey Badger from South Africa and the Wolverine of North America. Both of these animals have fearless reputations and have been known to fight off much bigger predators from their prey. Let's take a closer look to see just how a fight between these little warriors would turn out.

Tale of the Tape:



Honey Badger


12-18" at shoulder

10-14" at shoulder


26 to 34 in

20 to 28 in


25 to 70 lbs

15-35 lbs.


The Wolverine is the largest of the weasle family but resembles and acts like a small Bear. It is stocky muscular and ferocious. Male wolverines can weigh up to 70 lbs and reach a length of 3 ft. The Wolverine has been known to attack prey many times its size, with documented accounts of predation of moose. The wolverine has large teeth and a bite force that enables it to crush bones and frozen carcasses.

The Honey Badger, despite its name, biologically is more closely related to a Wolverine than badger species. Like the Wolverine, the ratel is notorious for its ferocity and fearless nature, even being able to scare lions and leopards away from their kills. The Honey badger has been deemed by the guiness book of world records as the most fearless animal on the planet. It is stocky but quick and has thick but loose skin that provides protection from attack.

The Fight

A 30 lb honey badger locks in on the scent of a large mammal carcass near by and quickly scampers towards it. Approaching the carcass, the honey badger learns that he is not first to the kill as a 50 lb wolverine has already started to dig in.  The fearless honey badger still has his eye on the prize and darts at the wolverine to scare it off. However, the wolverine is extremely aggressive when provoked and the fight ensues between the two stubborn animals. The speed of the honey badger allows it to get in close and smack the wolverine with its 3 in claws, drawing first blood. The honey badger takes a bite at the wolverine but finds its fur too thick to inflict much damage. The wolverine counter attacks with a bite to the neck of the honey badger, however only catching some of its thick skin. This allows the badger to turn back around and take another shot at the wolverine. The wolverine uses this opportunity to take another bite of his own, this time to the leg of the honey badger. It crushes the smaller animals bones with its powerful jaw before finishing it with a claw to the underbelly.

Wolverine Wins!
