  • SPORTS MOMENT: Attending the OSU-UM game in 2006 after my oldest brother got offered extra tickets to the game from OSU "because we oversold Minnesota, want 2 more tickets to Michigan instead?". I flew back. I have 4 brothers, I had to sit with the traitor but we had a ball at Hineygate and the game. Best tailgating I ever saw; total party.

Montana, agreed.  I don't go out in the forest here without a weapon, usually my .38.  Is it going to kill an angry Momma Bear? No but the sound of the shot hopefully will deter her.

I was once caught in a white out about 3 miles from my house.  Scared the living crap out of me as I was all alone on this road andI wasn't sure where exactly the edge was but i knew there was a steep ditch on either side that was full only of drifted snow.  God Bless the Subaru Outback!   

Yellowstone aside, I'd say you could dispose of a body in about 90% of Idaho and probably not get caught.   Open space galore just like Montana.

Wrong.  Harbaugh gets 4 of those for making the Motor City Bowl in those years.  Because....HARBAUGH!

Wait, this is crazy. No way Harbaugh lasts 7 years there. Sorry!

What continues to confound me, is why people don't go to the police.

Here at work, if I see a child getting molested, I'm calling 911 first then I'm trying to stop it.  If I think I'd be in danger stopping it, I would have still called the police.  I would never go to my employer just because it was a higher up or some other coworker.  This is a criminal matter.

Those women (and several DID go straight to the police) who went to their universities instead of the police after being assaulted or raped: it's the same thing.  If something happened to me when I was at OSU, I would have called the police, not talked to whomever at OSU about so-and-so assaulting me.

Why go to JoePa unless there was a reasonable expectation that 1) he ran everything 2) he would act as he should have.    Both these must have been in place.

So, he hits a game winner and is excited about it.  What is the alternative for the whiners here?  Act aloof because it's only "summer league"?

Would you have rather he'd put his head down, tell the reporter "Yeah this is just summer league, so whatever.  I'm heading to the locker room now so I can thank my teammates for a win in this meaningless game."

Yikes a couple of comments here belong on  Congrats D'Angelo!

I read the autobiography of the gal (Alison Arngrim) who played Nellie on Little House.   She said people on the street would be mean to her for years. Ironically, she and Melissa Gilbert (Laura) remained close friends while the gal who played Mary Ingels wasn't liked by anyone.  The guy who played her husband Percival was gay and died young in 1986 of AIDS.  They were great friends.

Can you tell it's the off season with this kind of FYI?

Have a good weekend.

I didn't DV you, but since this has never happened therefor the guy was just standing there, with no expectation of a problem. Hell, I could have wonked a shoulder into him and he would have fallen.  It doesn't matter how dramatic a fall  or not, you just don't do that.

Sorry Cris & Mrs. Cris.  Your boy F^%$ed up.  Again.  It's tough.

This is great.  But what is really confusing is that I've seen demented photos of Harbaugh (real, worse pics) in more abundance.  Good luck, TTUN "nation".
