Yeah if I break 50 going out I'm happy. And expecting a 60 on the back usually. I broke 90 a few times, but I don't hit in the 80s very regularly.

I went from hating that Fallout Boy song for the repetitive nature to loving it. Every time I hear it I get visions of Zeke frolicking through a secondary into an endzone.

At the next Eat Too Brutus or whatever it's called now, Dubgate??, we need to have a PL area for certain HS totals. And a portapotty to clean just outside it.

Don't you have an excuse to tag along to Japan? They are paying for her so you have to just pay your and your son's way and you can stay in the wife's hotel room so it should be just spending money and the plane ticket? Japan would be the ultimate trip for a techie/geek.

If that's out, DC, Boston, New York, Chicago are all driveable and worth it. Also Nashville/Memphis, Savannah, VA Beach, Myrtle Beach. Just depends on if you want an urban, rural or beach destination.

I get what you are saying, but if we win in an actual fair vote (and we should!) then why not?

We should really be hosting it very often because we are ideally set up for it. 94 was the cheapest, most profitable and most successful  World Cup to date by many metrics.

WARNING: I'm about to bring up TSUN.

The football stadium in Ann Arbor has been discussed to host a World Cup game if it ever came to the US again and to do so, they have proposed to suspend a grass/sod surface on a platform over a few rows of the seats in the lower level to make it large enough for a soccer field. I actually attended the Manchester United vs Real Madrid game there this past summer and it was a tight fight on a the current field level. Like corner kicks had no room for a run up and the benches had to be up in the stands. It would be similar in the Shoe I'm sure. They did put down an entire sod field to cover it and it was not ideal, the players all complained it was terrible.

The timing of this is funny in that way isn't it? This is obviously have some lasting effects on the election tomorrow. Prince Ali is a source in these arrests and it's no secret. But right now, it's Sepp or Prince Ali, no one else is even running.

I have never noticed. Tells ya how much I pay attention. I don't hang around Hop Cat enough. I can't afford much more though

When did they make you a MOD? Where have I been?

So can she have her own son over for dinner without reporting it to the NCAA? If the answer to that is an obvious yes, can he not bring any friends if they happen to be on the team too?

It raises a lot of questions, even outside the recruiting issue in my mind. Probably should be against the rules. I say this full well knowing that we've had Adam Griffin in recent years. I know the reduced tuition for children of faculty made an interesting argument that maybe if scholarship numbers got tight, the kid on the team who's parent was on staff should give up their schollie, give the parent a raise or bonus that's about equivalent to a year's tuition and all of the sudden, you're not oversigned.

You go to a deli now a days and they look at you like your crazy when you as for them to chip the ham. Unless they are of a certain age and from the area originally.

Comment 18 May 2015

My mom still talks of the days when her parents would doll her up, take her into Columbus to school shop and they'd hit up the Woolworth's and get chipped ham on the way home to have ham sandwhichs and cheddar&broc soup. She talks about it every time she makes us ham and cheese with soup recipe from grandma.

Comment 15 May 2015

I had such high hopes on that day of the draw that USA would get 2022 as my kids will be the perfect ages to take to games at that time. I was so crushed. I still hold out hope that they come to their senses and move it to the US by then. We could host a World Cup at a moment's notice.

Which is actually a typo of West Virginia's number and not Iowa's as it is quoted.
