To be fair, the style of play in the EPL is much more physical than it is in La Liga. Messi is arguably the best player in the world, but I don't think he'd make it through an entire EPL season on a consistent basis (when healthy he would of course still be stellar). Mainly because of teams like Stoke that are loaded with no-talent ass-clowns that take joy in causing tib-fib fractures.
Has nothing to do with the "everyone gets a trophy" mentality, and more to do with the fact that the coaches had kids that couldn't even walk from constant cramping. Of course, it must be easy to critique this decision, sitting on your couch. I'm sure the players were upset that the game was brought to a close, but it was only a high school game, and it was not worth risking severe injury to several players.
There's a national rule that prevents shootouts from determining state championships. They'll most likely add in a rule where the game will be suspended and played the next day after X amount of periods, or they'll switch OT to 4-on-4 play. A shootout should never determine a championship.
Uber and Chegg are pretty well established companies. Uber is a license-free taxi service, and Chegg is a notes-selling service. They're pretty popular on college campuses.
I think you mean his 'tutors' are spending some time in school.
I guess what I'm saying is this: what has happened to our capacity for mercy, compassion, decency... Why does every mistake or misdeed committed today have to lead to a public shaming of the sort that pretty well derails a person's life, perhaps in a way from which they will not be able to recover?
Because if you're an unfaithful, cheating dirtbag, you deserve to be shamed publicly. Simple as that. If we want to talk about decency and compassion, maybe the guy should have kept it in his pants instead of cheating on a woman that was loyal to him.
Really awful game today. Outside of Kessel and Kane, none of the forwards created many offensive chances, Kesler and Pavelski had particluarly awful games. Pacioretty and Parise (How did het get the C?) squandered multiple opportunities in the crease. Orpik and Martin (left with an injury) were nonexistent as a D-pair and provided no offensive threat at all. Suter and McDonagh were very solid in their even-strength shutdown role, but having Suter out as the point man on the power playss made no sense, that is a position that Shattenkirk or Carlson should be running, not Suter. This game further proved that Brian Burke and David Poile are meatheads that were cocky enough to think they could recreate 1980 with some amount of grit and skill, when they pulled a 2006 and brought a ton of grit and not enough skill, by leaving behind Bobby Ryan, Kyle Okposo, Keith Yandle and Dustin Byfuglien while choosing players like Blake Wheeler, Derek Stepan, Brooks Orpik, and Paul Martin.
Canada dominated possession and limited the US's chances, and none of that had to do with 'heart' and 'grit' and it had everything to do with elite skill and hockey sense. Next time the US should think about taking all of their most skilled players and leaving behind the idiots like Brian Burke, that call out elite American players (Bobby Ryan incident) for no reason at all.

Unbelievable. I've been playing pond hockey all winter and we've yet to have a single fight, and a couple of idiots get into a fight during a pickup game at the RPAC? Morons.
I can't stand helicopter parents. This is McDowell's decision to make, not his parents'. Even if the parents have a reason to so vehemently oppose him attending MSU, sometimes a kid has to make mistakes to learn from them. You can't watch over your kid forever, eventually you have to let them go.
Ottawa is getting a steal in Ryan Dzingel. A 7th rounder with a career points-per-game average of .98 in college, and is averaging 1.5 points-per-game this year. He's got Top 6 potential, and his possible success in the NHL could certainly help OSU's recruiting.
You're ignoring the fact that the costs incurred by building up the necessary infrastructure for public transit are quite high, and that many of our cities are not designed for public transit. The city of Atlanta owns 30 salt spreaders and 40 snow plows. If Kasim Reed weren't an incompetent buffoon, this issue would have been entirely avoided. But hey, what can one expect from government, even at the municipal level? You want a real solution? Privatize infrastructure in the US.
I'd say the hockey model is the best. You can be drafted as a 17 year old, and choose whether or not to attend college, play in a junior league or if you make your team, go pro. However if you choose to sign your ELC (entry level contract) you cannot play in college, but can still play in a junior league. That gives the players and teams the most flexibility. It allows for players to play for as many or as few years as they want to for their college, and it gives them the option to go pro if they are capable of it.
Of course the issue with football is that there is nothing comparable to the OHL/WHL/QMJHL/USHL (all junior leagues).
Name me one case where anyone drinking has done them any good. Oh, you can't? Then I don't think anyone else should be drinking either. See how stupid that logic is?
No. It's ridiculous to expect someone to respect such an idiotic and bigoted law (ageism). I had to sign up for the Selective Service System, but I can't have a beer? Yeah some laws are meant to broken.
+1 gave me a chuckle
How's the view from that horse of yours?
You have to try to get cited with underage consumption, or be a complete moron. I'm not going to be hypocritical and say the guy shouldn't be drinking as a college student, but he should be a little smarter about it.
They sure don't. All 4 of their lines can score, as well as play a sound two way game, and they have a defensive corps that can skate on the big ice, hit, and QB their power plays. Those capabilities combined with a good goalie make for a pretty formidable team.
With Skjei and M. Reilly Minnesota has two big time defensive NHL prospects. Fasching also looks to be a stud, he was good at the WJCs for the US this year. There's a reason Minnesota is #1 in the country, they're loaded.
Canada merely because of the some of the elite talent they have like Connor McDavid, Jonathan Drouin, and Sam Reinhart, but Sweden made them look slow in their pre-comp game earlier this week. The WJC is going to give a team like Sweden an advantage because the Swedes have a roster loaded with elite skaters such as Wennberg, Lindholm, Burakowsky and Forsberg, whereas the Canadian and American squads cannot skate nearly as well top to bottom. The US will have extremely strong goaltending, but they don't have much elite offensive talent outside of Jack Eichel and Adam Erne (Montreal didn't release Alex Galchenyuk). So barring any major upsets, I see Sweden taking the WJC fairly easily this year, and it also helps that it's being held in Malmo.
I think that Sweden will beat Canada in the gold medal match, and the US will beat someone like Russia or Slovakia in the bronze medal match. Russia could be a bit of a dark horse, because they'll have the goaltending (Vasilevsky is great), and the skating to compete on the bigger ice, but they're almost too small, guys like Tolchinsky, and Buchnevich are wizards with the puck, but they're tiny. Also the Russians leaving out Nikolai Goldobin didn't make much sense, as he's been very good for Sarnia this year.
Ohio State certainly has the money to make ice hockey relevant. It just depends on if they're willing to spend it (they need their own rink). Bowling Green has a national title, and is almost always a decent squad, and Miami is always amongst the nation's elite. Hockey is much bigger in Ohio than it used to be, and if OSU manages to keep kids in Ohio from going to Miami (tough job), as well as stealing a few from Minnesota/Wisconsin/Massachusetts, they could be well on their way to being a force in college hockey. Of course that is all easier said than done.
Sweden is going to run away with the WJC this year. They'll have Lindholm (CAR), Forsberg (NSH), Wennberg (CBJ), Johnson (TOR), Collberg (MTL), and Burakowsky (WSH) as their Top 6. That's 4 1st round picks, a 2nd, and a 7th (Johnson was a steal) in their Top 6. And they'll have Dansk (CBJ) as their starter in net, who only happens to be the best goalie in the OHL this year..
