Yep. That was totally fake.

Sooooo, you use a whacked out ball to gain a competitive advantage at home.  But you're using a whacked out ball so you're at a disadvantage when playing all your road games.  Not sure that type of rule bending is worth it.

That sounds like a sweet life experience.  I did not make it to Nicaragua but have heard similar reviews that its legit.  While tooling around Costa Rica, the locals were telling me that most of their workers in the fields and manual laborers are from Nicaragua.  Many of the educated Ticos save the hospitality jobs for themselves - as that is the more prestigious of their two main industries.  They go to college for it and with their degree comes learning english and Costa Rican history along with whatever hospitality service and/or guiding they're going to specialize.  Many of those folks also said Nicaragua was beautiful just very poor.

Anyhow, I loved Costa Rica and their Pura Vida lifestyle.  I also crushed about 923589238239 Imperial's while there.

COSTA RICA. It is awesome and one of the coolest places I've visited. You can hit the mountains and white water raft, zip line through the rain forest, hike with sloths, and party in the volcanic hot springs. Arenal is the spot for adventure.

Then head to the coast for some surfing, horses/atv on the beach, and lounging in the awesome ocean villages/beaches. It's really one of the best countries to visit and I've been a lot of places. Tamarindo on the Pacific side is a really cool surf town with tons of good bars, restaunts and shopping.

This is the same conference that has teams claiming national titles retroactively from 60 years ago in a season they finished outside the top 10 in most polls. These fools would claim a wet fart if it meant football bragging rights.

While my preference in the Beatles catalog are the St Peppers and Magical Mystery Tour albums, you cant argue with the influence of the Beatles and their creativity.

There's a pretty good section on the Beatles in Malcom Gladwell's book Outliers.  About how their manager set them up to play in Germany for a while and they used to have to play/fill stage for 8 hours straight.  It was during that time they played tons of covers from tunes they liked and/or were intrigued by.  It was that noodling and experimenting that helped them have such a diverse background and so many different sounds and musical arrangements to pull from when creating new music.  When you look at what the Beatles produced, they did in roughly a decade.  That is an insanely short time to produce such results.

Lots of trafficking goes through the Toledo(legit, drugs or otherwise) because 75 runs from Canada to the bottom of Florida and then 80/90 runs from west coast to east coast. 

Major highway crossroads.

I was going to ask if this is a 3rd kit. 

Being that it is indeed a 3rd kit, then who cares...they're always different.

They hired the high school coach of Peppers and Rashan Gary.

My favorite Dateline episodes are the brazen smug a-hole who thinks he's smarter than everyone and the cops just let him talk himself to a conviction. I see something along these lines for Harbaughs future. 

Edit - That was Patridge - who you mentioned.
