    Deep Thoughts-Skiing 2018-19

    I grew up in Michigan. Mt. Brighton makes Wachusett look like Revelstoke.

    Issues Signing into SoSH

    On my iPhone for the last few days, I've had to log in every time I get on SoSH via the website (I haven't been using the mobile app because it takes up too much data space). I get booted out every time I leave the site -- whether it's because I go to a different site or I close Safari. This...

    Have you ever seen an MLB no-hitter in person? (If not, how close have you come?)

    I forgot Lisa Loeb was one of the acts. She was awful.

    Have you ever seen an MLB no-hitter in person? (If not, how close have you come?)

    Turned down my cousin's extra ticket to what turned out to be Derek Lowe's no-hitter. Midnight Oil was playing a free show that afternoon at the Hatch Shell, I'd always liked them but I've never seen them live before and I figured I wouldn't miss much vs. Tampa so why not catch the show instead...

    Who has seen a triple play?

    I was also at the game in '94 with Val's unassisted triple play (and A-Rod's debut). It was a Friday night. I remember it happening too quick to process and then when everyone came off the field, I was skeptical of what I just saw. There had only been 9 unassisted triple plays in history at that...

    Kirk and Callahan: Annoying Little Pissants

    Yup. A lot of people really do fanboy. A good friend of mine is a sensitive Jewish guy who lived in Boston as a kid then went to HS in Manhattan before coming back for college and somehow he thinks he's Sully from Southie. He listens to 'EEI all day, he thinks Callahan is the greatest sports...

    West Ham: Where playing defense was retired in tribute to Bobby Moore

    Moyes it is. This is kind of like if, in 1999, the Patriots -- after firing Pete Carroll -- had settled on Rich Kotite (not that Bill Belichick is out there and not that they have the Krafts as owners). But all he has to do is get them to avoid relegation. They're not without talent, though the...

    Aaron Hernandez: Had Advanced CTE - NEP Sued

    How is rooting for AH's daughter rooting for him? He's dead and has nothing personal to gain from this.

    The 16 Most Important People in the Patriots' Dynasty

    Both guys were clutch postseason performers (in addition to getting knocked unconscious vs. Buffalo in the regular season, Patten had huge TD catches in both the AFCC and the SB that year). I loved Givens too. I was sad to see him go.

    The 16 Most Important People in the Patriots' Dynasty

    Wasn't that David Patten, not Givens (who wasn't drafted until after the following season)?

    2016 College Football Week 5: 3 top 10 matchups!

    2 missed kicks for Kenny Allen today. Ali Haji-Sheikh is not walking through that door, fans. Mike Gillette is not walking through that door. Jay Feely is not walking through that door.

    2016 College Football Week 5: 3 top 10 matchups!

    Something like 17 or 18 freshmen have seen the field this year for Harbaugh. Yeah, a lot of his players are Brady's guys. But his guys have made an impact too.

    Michigan Football 2016: I-Rashan-al

    I was wondering where everybody was. I've been loving watching them but I didn't want to post anything until they've faced a real test. So far, the defense didn't look good against the only decent QB they've faced. But with Jourdon Lewis and Charlton back, maybe it's a different story. I'm...

    West Ham 2015-2016: Bye Bye Boleyn

    My brother in law is in London for work and went to the FA Cup match on Saturday. He said the atmosphere was phenomenal. Regrettably it looks like I'll never get to Upton Park.

    2015 Michigan Football: Getting Real Real, Real Fast

    Bubba Paris is another one. Michigan All-American, Rose Bowl winner, 3-time Super Bowl Champion. Also worthy of mention.

    2015 Michigan Football: Getting Real Real, Real Fast

    Not on the level of Brady or Woodson. But Jumbo Elliott is worth a mention. 2-time 1st team All-American followed by a 14-year NFL career. Starter for a SB champion. He never played for a Rose Bowl winner, but that was pretty rare under Bo anyway.

    Tigers trade for K-Rod

    As a Tiger fan, I love this (at least based on his numbers over the last few years). But I am a little nervous -- their track record trading for veteran closers in the past has been a disaster. They got 1 great year out of Valverde but virtually no value from Percival or Nathan. K-Rod is younger...

    Kirk and Callahan: Annoying Little Pissants

    Heard it when I switched over during a T&R commercial break. Gerry's dismissiveness of black students' concerns -- and his insistence that football players were only getting involved to meet chicks at the protest -- was completely predictable.

    2015 Michigan Football: Getting Real Real, Real Fast

    How can someone run a Harbaugh offense when he locks in on one receiver, stares at him the whole way and never checks off for other options? I see a lot I like tonight but the QB situation is scary.

    2015 Michigan Football: Getting Real Real, Real Fast

    Not feeling a lot of confidence in Rudock right now. To say the least.
