I will be rooting for my Pens tonight, but I am happy to see the Jackets in the playoffs.  Hopefully we will have a good series.  I would love to see a nice rivalry develop with some fans I can respect.

Which is really a senseless concern.  Some players have always had (and will always have) more money than others to spend on other things.  Should we be concerned about that?  Why should we now be concerned about our poorer athletes (or larger, hungrier athletes) having additional spending money?

I don't know if this is should be a big worry.  The rule says athletes can have unlimited food not money for food.  I take this as they can get unlimited food at dining halls, training table, and possibly restaurants that accept student meal plans.

You should try Open Range. Awesome western.

Can I assume you are referring to Jose? Are you from Bellaire?

Interesting, I don't remember Davis' motion being that bad.  But that is just going on pure memory.  I do recall there being some issue with him not using the laces when gripping the ball.  And, I know that he had a documented learning disability which, of course, directly influenced his development/understanding as a QB.  I don't remember whether or not it was dyslexia.

And what did your scouting say about Davis?  Everything I have seen and read about Davis indicating Rill Dill is right, the guy had a terrific arm and decent accuracy.  Did you see something different?  I think Nate Davis's primary issues with making it at a higher level was his understanding of an NFL playbook and overall coach-ability.

The $2500 payment is an incentive to cancel a planned visit in order to eliminate competition for a recruit's commitment.  Marcus Baugh did pretty much did the opposite of that: committed to a school without visiting.  I don't know why anyone would pay him for that.

I wonder if he was referring to head-to-head recruiting battles.  Maybe not but that is how I took it initially.

Exactly.  I can't even remember playing the single-player option on Goldeneye.

My girlfriend has been talking about a fantasy of flipping smart cars for about two years now.  I asked her last week if she had been flying to San Francisco during the day instead of going to work.  I fear she is doing her dirty work closer to home now.

I never thought this thing was fixed and I don't suspect it now.  I just don't understand the rationale of an extension of voting based on this issue of voting on multiple platforms.  Wasn't the issue still present during the vote-off?  If so, I don't see how an extension makes it better.

I don't mind it that much but it seemed like a strange decision to me.

*Beat the Wright Brothers in suspect overtime.  I am still not sure why there was a 24 hour vote-off when the Wright Bros. won by a vote in regulation.  Oh well, even though I voted for them, I am still happy Jesse won.

Jesse Owens is my all-time favorite Buckeye athlete.  I have actively sought out some of the more important sites of his life:  Ferry Field, the Olympiastadion in Berlin, some of his oak trees, his grave in Chicago.  Maybe one day I will make it to Oakville, AL.  A great man.
