I wouldn't necessarily tie it to government either, Furious.  I think part of the problem (for mid-west states) is climate, especially around the winter time.  States that have great weather all year round will contain - generally speaking, of course - a more active population.  

When I was living in Portland, I could go for a run outside during my lunch year-round.  Sure it might be raining a little in February, but the temperature would be in the 40's.  Now that I moved back to Ohio, do you think I really want to go running outside when it's 10 degrees and there's a foot of snow on the ground?

You said it, Baroclinicity!  Nice way to start the weekend!  (Kinda makes up for the Baker commitment to UF...)

Totally agree, the 101 is an amazing drive.  Don't forget about Astoria, though.  The bridges and the views of the mouth of the Columbia River are amazing, not to mention some fantastic places to eat.

I really loved Tillamook also.  (The creamery has amazing ice cream.)  We drove through there on our way to Rockaway Beach, which is another one of my favorites.  The only downside of Tillamook was the constant manure smell.  Gotta love dairy country! haha

For a great steak, don't forget about El Gouge-o's El Gaucho's!  

For a great spot at the coast, we loved to take the family to Seaside (great shops and beautiful beach.)  What was your favorite location on the coast, Oregonian?

...and that may well be the case, but I'd never think to order it, because I have no idea what a bramble berry crisp is

AndyVance, for some reason your quote reminded me of the Crunchy Frog sketch (Monty Python, of course...):

One of my absolute favorite shows growing up was You Can't Do That on Television.  From the ad lib skits to the crazy characters, it was hilarious.  One of the actors who really made the show was Les Lye.  He played over half-dozen adult characters and was a staple of the show (RIP):

That picture from the road to Mt St Helens is pretty freaky!  

The drive along highway to Mt St Helens is absolutely gorgeous, and I suggest everyone - if they have the opportunity - to make that drive.  There are 3 different places along the road where you can pull off and take spectacular pictures of Mt St Helens in the distance.  The highway literally ends at the Johnston Ridge Observatory, where you have a view *into* the crater of the volcano (you can see the new growth that has been forming since the eruption.)

Best site in the land!!!!

Best *Damn* Site in the Land!!!  There, corrected it for ya. ;-)

 

I couldn't agree more, BuckeyeJ!  Huge thank you to all the people who keep this site humming as beautifully as a Ferrari.

The map of where football players come from looks, in essence, similar to a basic map of the largest cities in the US (with the exception of Miami, which produces a larger volume of football players per capita).  Is the explanation really as simple as "more football players come from areas containing larger populations"?

Love your profile pic, Scarlet.  I've never tried lutefisk, but since a friend of mine warned me about what it really was, I probably never will!  (***shudders***)  :-)

In my opinion, there is a huge difference between the two plays.  First and foremost, in regards to the OSU-Cal gif, the Cal player is not only facing the blocker, but also the blocker is directly in front of where the running back is at that moment.  Looking at the Texas player, he was attacking the defender from a blind angle *in addition* to being completely away from the play...

Those roundabouts were crazy!  I drove up the A1 from London to Yorkshire and had to go around a few of them.  I could never get comfortable darting out into those two-lane monstrosities!
