I ran 17 hilly miles this morning. Still an hour until the gluttony begins. I am famished. Happy Thanksgiving all!

I think they should hire an actual honest-to-goodness wolverine as head coach of that team up north (it doesn't merit capital letters). I would wager a large weasel with a bad attitude would do the best coaching job they've seen there in awhile, and you have this additional bonus: mascot and coach in one!

As another example, when my wife and I stayed in the Dominican Republic, all of the hotels we stayed at had most of the same channels I get on Time-Warner in Los Angeles.

If you are in a country with ties to the US, you can likely get the television feed in a major hotel, or even a minor one depending on where you are at. When I lived in Belize, there was a little dumpy place in Orange Walk I would stay at to watch football sometimes, and to watch the basketball team in the Final Four.

Glad you were able to get everything straightened out. It's issues of suspicion that make me cautious about traveling to the Middle East. My wife is half Persian, from her mom's side. Her mom travels to Iran to visit her family. I know factually that the people of Iran are great. Under their new president, the government is trying to get along with the US better, and are even trying to encourage tourism by Americans and, indeed, US tourist visits to Iran are skyrocketing. My wife wants to visit (she spent the summer there when she was 4), and I really want to go, but these sorts of things scare me. Most male members of my family are in the military. I am co-owner of an environmental consulting firm with multiple government contracts. What if they know that and I'm under suspicion the moment I get there? Sucks the world is that way.

I think anyone can if they have good athletes, the match ups, and call the right scheme. I certainly don't know it all, but it seems to me they've run the same offensive scheme for years and it's a lot of smoke and mirrors.

I don't get why Oregon's offense is so effective in their own conference, which should know better, but it falls apart when they play anyone with a pulse outside their conference. The MSU game is an exception.
