And that given the historical difficulties that the SEC has had with teams Seceding from it because of oversigning (look up the history of Georgia Tech and their most famous coach, Dodds), all conferences should have the same rules, shouldn't they?  Because it just wouldn't be fair to exile Napoleon Saban to Elba, would it?

Personally I'm glad the U.S. didn't host the World Cup.  All we need is team owners in MLS wanting to use public funds to host WCs and the Olympics.  My Uncle lives in Atlanta, and as great as the Olympics was for their area, most of the infrastructure was already in place, and they are still paying for certain parts of it almost twenty years later.

All Urban can say is the character of the man he knew while he was coaching him.  Not the man that McDonald or Hernandez is today, but the person that he coached, one of 100 odd players he had responsibility for.

Chocolate.  Some studies ( Some of which have questionable validity) say that chocolate is more addictive than cocaine.

To be fair to DJ, I didn't even try Coneys with Chili until I was 10, and I was born in Cincy, and my mom's crave food when pregnant with me was Skyline (my dad worked for the Reds at the time, and the Skyline near the ballpark across from P&G, is one of the best)

Matusmoto's Shave Ice is amazing, I'm glad they reopened (they were closed right after my cousin moved back to Hawaii in '14).  Also, while you're in Haleiwa, check out Surf n Sea (neat surf shop my step grandfather founded it with a friend back in the early 60s, and sold out when he moved back to the mainland).  And along the North Shore (you could easily spend two days up there on snorkeling alone), make sure to hit Sunset Beach, the Three Tables (you'll likely see sea turtles), Shark's Cove, and of course Waimea Bay.  And while you're driving around the island, have a plate lunch, they are fantastic.  Dole Plantation is amazing, especially the history of cane and pineapple on the islands.  If you haven't ever been to Hawaii before, I would recommend a Luau at the Polynesian Cultural Center, and also the Bishop Museum is a must see to learn about Hawaii's development through the years (plus there's a huge whale hanging over part of it).

Turn just got on there this month.  It's about the Culper Spy ring in the Revolutionary War, and it's fantastically done, plus the actor they picked for Washington gets the gravitas of the role just right.

Comment 14 May 2015

The other shirt I'd love to see would be:  Bennett Destroying Melvin Gordon (the hit that caused the fumble), and captioned with: "Badger Season", then Steve Miller picking off Bama's QB, captioned by "Elephant Season", and followed by Bosa's hit on Mariota captioned by "Duck Season".

Next time I visit my childhood church, I'm going to have to ask one of the older gentlemen if he was acquainted with any of the Conley's in the Tuskeegee Airmen, because he was one of their mechanics.

And one of them should not be a 4 year old.  I broke my dad's truck cap by letting it go too soon when I was 4.

Comment 08 May 2015

The really important question is are we recruiting a WR and RB named Athos and Porthos?  And a QB from the recruiting class the year after theirs named D'Artagnan?

Comment 08 May 2015

My guess is that this was proposed and passed by Georgia Tech fans trolling UGA.  Georgia Tech got out of the SEC because of their culture of oversigning and pay to play.

I am a fairly homely person, but man, it's amazing how ugly he is.  His mom was Miss Sweden, and a model when she was younger (and from the crowd shots in the 2007 champ game, aged pretty well too), and his dad is a fairly normal looking guy who was a big time tennis player.  I have no idea how that combination produces a child that ugly, but it does prove that genetics is odd.
