I live in an apartment that I rent in the city. I do lots of things for a living and I am content on not having an office. No wife, which is a long story. No kids either, which is an even longer story. I also have more nose hair than my brother.

Man, that's a tough question. I probably lean towards Gordon, but in terms of NFL prospects, it's just a matter of finding the right system for them. Abdullah can be the best at the next level if he finds a good system that fits his style. It's definitely a nice crop of RB's for sure.

I can't remember his username, but on the old site format, there was a UM fan that defended Hoke furiously and ending up getting into a battle with me, which I think ended up helping to his demise on the site as he was very combative, where I told him Hoke was a mediocre coach to begin with and only a couple winning seasons wherever he went. I eventually said that his track record shows very little improvement from year to year and that'll be his undoing at UM. Now at this present time, look at what is happening. #NumbersDontLie

Is Sammy old enough to consume adult beverages?

Oh, baseball certainly has its issues right now; one being how hard it is for someone to sit down and watch a game on TV anymore. I remember as a kid watching the games every night, but at this point I'm lucky if I watch 2-3 games a year and even luckier if I watch the whole game. I'd much rather go to the event than watch it on TV. But that aside, it doesn't mean that it can't change, ya know? With the push towards safety and long term health, do parents start gravitating towards baseball, a sport with a far less chance of long term health issues among the former players? I don't know, but it seems to be within reason and I can totally see it happening. Will it ever reach the popularity it saw in its heyday? No, but there can be a revival and I can see it happening over the next several years.

According to Stu, Alum_05 has a little explaining to do with his Lounge bathroom cleaning. I think I can let it slide though.

If JTF wasn't surfing websites that he shouldn't all day, maybe you'd have access to viewing images. I solely blame him.

I recently had a conversation with some friends and I made an argument for how baseball is likely going to see a revival of sorts. Basketball has such a small roster and it makes it difficult for one to succeed, but given the depth of baseball, the chance of playing is greater and as we see results of these violent contact sports, particularly football, in how they affect adults, you'll start seeing more parents gravitating towards a sport, like baseball, that has less risk of long term health issues, particularly with the head.

I played soccer for several years when I was younger (through 7th grade). I distinctly remember the first time doing a header and how freaking bad it hurt. I got used to it but it still hurts and I can certainly see that causing issue.

Hold on a second, does the blame go on Bollman, or the man who allowed his loyalty to his staff get in the way of a management decision?

I think Nick Siciliano may take offense to this question.

Edit: I think the "question" was getting lost.

I'm glad the whole community got involved in this thread hijacking. It started before this thread was even saved by the OP. Apparently we are rubbing off on everyone else. Therefore, we are the best.
