I work in Grandview and we make it up to Miller's Ale house for lunch regularly.  I probably can't say enough good things about that place.

Wide Receivers.

We have two that have done anything meaningful in Devin Smith and Evan Spencer.  However, I do not trust either to get open against teams with good pass defense.  Beyond them, we have a lot of unproven talent and I'm not confident that we have a good coach at that position to help them turn the corner in their college careers.  And I believe this position group will be the difference in whether our offense has any success this year.  We are not going to be able to rely on our running game in the same way that we did last year, so the wide receivers will need to step up and Braxton is going to need the confidence and accuracy to hit tight windows.

I am confident that this group will be more than serviceable, however it is the biggest weakness (and possibly the most crucial to our success) of all the position groups this year.

It also might be against Amazon's policy.

What might be interesting is to have a weekly/monthly "top 5 weirdest 11w purchases" column.  We could then click links to the amazon product page and make fun of any reviews that might have been written on them -- and then try to match the reviewer to 11w members.

This might also be against Amazon's policy, but it would be awesome.

Rather than worrying about what should be on the FAQ page, how about this:

As far as voting policies, I'm of the mind that those who abuse their voting privileges probably don't read or care about what the FAQ/Commenting Policy/Voting Policy says about it.  A confirmation box on a downvote button click might add some deterrence, though.

I feel like debating those two is like debating the winner of the special olympics of fast food.  But I'll weigh in here -- Gold Star usually tastes better between the two, but the stores are waaaay more ghetto.  However, on most days, given the choice between the two, I'd choose to go hungry.

They actually have a little picnic area with a charcoal grill outside my building...  but I arrived at work without charcoal and without steak so...  ugh it's only 10:00????

I used to be in an Air Defense unit in the Army, so my first reaction was similar -- how in the heck did they manage to shoot down a commercial aircraft?  Because of their weight and size, their take off speed is pretty high, so you aren't going to hit it with an RPG without being directly under it with the perfect angle of approach, and even then it would be a pretty lucky shot.  To have any realistic chance, you need guided missiles.  Where do you get guided missiles?  Russian weapons manufacturers or the US military.  Seeing as stinger missiles are not intuitive to lock on and fire without training and practice (Metal Gear Solid is nothing like the real thing FYI), and I'm sure the Russian equivalents are the same, it really makes me wonder... 

Stuff like this pisses me off.

They moved him up 100 spots because they figured he wasn't going to end up in the B1G.  If something goes wrong with Stanford and he re-affirms his commitment to PSU, watch his ranking drop...

How to calculate 110% of 7 million using Common Core Math:

Get 7 million people to stand in a circle.  Start counting from 1, starting with the first person.  After everyone has counted, go around the circle again, but only every 10th person counts.  When you get to the end, you have the answer!

Denard Robinson Devin Gardner wins the September Heisman and almost leads the skunkbears to a few B1G wins.  Attempts another TD pass to an opposing defense but it falls incomplete this time.

Well, when you hire a man that tanked a national pizza chain to run your athletic department like a business...  well...  you shouldn't really be surprised by anything (other than actual success).

Comment 14 Jul 2014

Isn't the use of the term "sources" generally reserved for any source who wishes to remain anonymous, and/or to a source that is exclusive to a particular agency?  In either cause, the source would also have to consent to having their information disclosed, wouldn't they?

I would think that ESPN could be sued for the generic use of "sources" when the source is a rival agency, especially since the content is probably copyrighted by the rival agency.

I've been noticing today that the unread comments count in a lot of places is just off.  Sometimes it is higher than the total comment count.  Most notably in the main forum page.

Comment 10 Jul 2014

Rename the dragster, "Top Thrill Decision"?  You could put a "Leaving Cleveland" sign at the start and "Entering Cleveland" sign at the end points along with "Welcome to Miami" and "Leaving Miami" signs at the top.  And the continuous 2 hour wait for the ride will now seem short!

I personally don't like potato salad, which is odd seeing as my entire family, wife's family, best friend and his family, all eat lots of potato salad.  However, if I could make $3800 for making a batch of potato salad (or even, maybe make a third recipe), then heck, I'll become a fan of potato salad.

Kudos to this guy for being awesome.  Maybe I'll start my own kickstarter to fund the LEGO Deathstar that I've been wanting for like 5 years.
