That was beautiful. So wish that I could have joined you.

Brilliant blog. Absolutely brilliant. And a great analysis of their song themes. You could make money doing this...

I always forget how much older Andy Summers is than Sting and Stewart:
Stewart Copeland (born July 16, 1952)
Sting (born Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner on October 2, 1951)
Andy Summers (born December 31, 1942)
Henry Padovani (born 13 October 13, 1952)- he only lasted eight months and I think one or two recorded songs, which is why he is almost never mentioned... didn't have the chops to keep up with Andy.

I didn't get exposed to a whole album by The Police until Synchronicity, though I'd heard a couple of their songs on the radio. It wasn't until high school until I really started delving into them because I fell completely and totally in love with Sting (musically. His looks didn't hurt, but it was really his music that did it.) And I was hooked... their work was absolutely groundbreaking and the musicianship by all three of them is remarkable; they (along with Earth, Wind, and Fire) are among the top five bands of all time. The indicator for me is this: can you put on a song you've heard hundreds of times before and still come away with something new every time? And I do with both of the above.

And as a footnote: our similarities are downright eerie... :)

Awesome game, Grue... but I am unworthy of the prize...

OTF-- If you read the title, it's addressed to the current coach. Therefore, it's talking about the program under Tressel, which has been clean to this point. (Remember that he inherited Clarett from Cooper.) And for the record, Ohio State has been reasonably clean compared other major programs.

Unbiased-- on the original situation, I wasn't too keen on it either. It appeared to me that it was taken completely out of Tressel's hands and was handled by Smith, Delany, and the Sugar Bowl guy who openly admitted lobbying the NCAA for the exception. Knowing what we know now, that was probably a good thing. On #3, that was what I said to my mom who replied, "You've never been part of a federal investigation; it's not that simple." (She has.) OK... I would think that contacting your attorney is protecting yourself and not a violation of anything...

And I firmly believe that paying players is not the answer to cleaning up college sports. The NFL setting up a "minor league" a la baseball or hockey is a start-- that way, those who truly want a degree can be student athletes, and those who are using university sports as a gateway to the pro realm can get the training they need without detracting from the college game. It would be a start, anyway...

Sigh... Why doesn't Sports Illustrated dedicate an issue of their magazine to intelligent men?

Trying to placate me, eh Hippy?

Fine-- I'll take the former, but you can keep the latter. Now if you had said GREG Smith...

Cain, Grue, and UB-- is there a way to do blocks ONLY on this site? I'm not sure how it will affect other sites I need to visit if I turn off ads here.

And randomly turning ads on and off for various sites will be a bigger pain in the arse than having boobs in my face every time I log on here...

Onetallflyer--
A) I do not go to Wal-Satan; I haven't since Sam died and his spawn sold their souls to make more profit at the expense of the American people and our economy.
B) The managers have no more say in the store stock than I do about how my tax dollars are spent. We can each TRY to change things, but it's really an act of futility, so to put my disdain on them is unfair.
C) I don't buy Cosmo or any of the others-- if I did, I'd complain to the publisher about the models and the airbrushing. If I belonged to a Cosmo blog, I'd complain about it there as well, but there is no point in my joining a Cosmo blog-- I've no interest in most of the subject matter they present. Here, I enjoy MOST of the subject matter, but once a year, it gets REALLY annoying. And as a patron of the site, I think it's OK for me to complain about it, especially when it's my blog that others don't HAVE to read on said site. On the other hand, I have no choice but to see this drek unless I avoid the site altogether because it's EVERYWHERE.
D) I work with college students on a daily basis-- I often talk to "my girls" about how unrealistic these things are and about maintaining a healthy body image, despite what is thrown in our faces everyday. Sometimes I'm heard, but often, I'm not...
E) I've already acknowledged that my ranting will have little to no impact. But again, it's my blog, I can say pretty much what I want. If you want, on your blog, you can exalt the virtues of seeing nearly naked women everywhere...

And for the record, I see absolutely nothing wrong with giving him a better experience if it improves my experience in the process... ;)

Since Women of FanNation imploded, there are people I've missed chatting with. When I saw KP's blog pop up on the the right, I was excited to see that she's still around, so I popped over to say hello, only to see the sad news.

My sincerest condolences Debi... and RIP, Cowboy Dave. You will be missed.

Have I mentioned lately how awesome you are? Brilliant blog, Grue. The caption to the photo is priceless...

Don't like your pick for my game (obviously), but as always, an awesome read... and I agree about the Dome vs. seating issue...

I-O!!!!!!!!!!

So you're saying that the Badgers are saying, "Here, kitty kitty..."?

;)

Great blog as always, Grue! Read an interview with Pat Fitzgerald-- he's almost excited to be the one that JoePa will (knock wood) win over...

[quote]... All Big Ten fans and people over the age of 50 should pull up a chair and settle in for some good, old-fashioned 1950s era Smashmouth football. Clay battles Clayborn. Stanzi battles Tolzien. We don't need none o' those fancy-pants mocha lattes from Oregon. You can keep your fried okra and jumbo-lie-yas, SEC. We don't need none of you're cheap beer and tortilla chips from the Big 12.

We got steaks. We got corn. We got cheese. We got manly beer. We got Brats. We got middle-American, down on the farm, meat & potatoes football the way our Daddies and Grand-Daddies use to play. Or at least the way they TOLD us they used to play cause that's the way we were supposed to become men. Real men with overflowing testosterone shooting John-Wayne glares, and un-waxed chest hair plus Rough-rider mustaches. They played real football back then...[/quote]

Gawd, I [b]LOVE[/b] Big Ten football! Awesome read as usual, Grue!

Thanks, JP.

Grue-- I [b]know[/b] my persistence usually has an effect-- I just don't think it did in this case... ;)
Posted Friday October 08, 2010, About: The Big Ten and the Next Best Three, Week 6
Agreed, JP. I laughed out loud at that one...

:)

And *I* think "little brother" is about to have his day, so despite the wunderkind, I'm taking State over TSUN. (Plus, I hate them and want them to implode...)
