Everything puts the blackout to shame. Stupid unoriginal concept. Wear scarlet, give everyone a scarlet pom, it would look awesome.

My nephew went there on a full ride. Can't hate the Nerds on his account, but I'm totally fine with hanging 50 on them.

Joe made the right decision for himself.  If he'd stayed, he'd only have started one year, and wouldn't be as developed as he appears to be now.  He was decent during his first season as a starter, but he has really blossomed this year.  It is not likely that he would be in the first-round discussion with only one year of film.  Good luck, Joe!

Baseball is losing the kids.  I'm involved in the schools out here, and I'm only aware of one kid that plays baseball, but a lot of them play, or have played, soccer.  I've tried to interest him, but my kid has no interest.  Heck, I'm not sure that lacrosse isn't bigger than bball among the kids out here.  Possibly related; we went to only one Mariners game this year, which set us back around $100, so there's that.

It was weird. It didn't feel like a game day at all.  It was hot as hell, no tailgating to speak of, and the stadium took well into the game to fill up because everyone was stuck in normal evening commuter traffic (go figure!).  We should NEVER do that again. 

It's ironic that the whole reason for our playing on Friday in the first place is to please the TV overlords, and now they are not even going to show it.  Priceless.

Spot on.  Thus far, six is the maximum number of teams that have had any business being included in the discussion, and most years it has been five.  This season is shaping up to me more interesting than most, but barring any 2007-esque mayhem, it will probably settle into the usual five-team pattern.  Promoters of an eight-team playoff also usually tout a guaranteed spot for a G5 team, which makes it even more pointless.  Looking at the current top eight, (or 12) I don't see any team that would likely lose to any two G5 teams combined.  I would also hate to see a #1 seed lose a key player in an elimination game with a team that really didn't belong there in the first place.  Recall that we lost Branden Bowen for two years against a god-awful MD team.  More is not necessarily better.  Unless you're ESPN.

Since you qualified it as a family dinner, I'd go Urban, as we're more familiar with his family.  Urban may, or may not, be a good dinner conversationalist, but I think Shelley and his adult kids would take up the slack nicely.
