Re: Sandusky: final twitches

USA Gymnastics saw the resignation of the Chairman, Vice Chairman and Treasurer from their Board of Directors. Seems those resignations are a direct result of this scandal. That's a start, I guess. It's tough to know what should happen to people who were not directly involved because it's really di...

Re: Sandusky: final twitches

I'm really not convinced the NCAA needs to be involved here. It's a criminal matter best left for the courts. But, so was Sandusky. So why intervene in one and not the other? How is that justifiable? And, why is Emmert not being asked to explain the differences? That's my real beef here. The blatan...

Re: These are a few more of my favorite peeves

One issue about having a 2005 and 2007 auto is that shocks, struts, etc. begin to bleed oil eventually and need to be replaced. Older cars have deterioration issues that require ongoing maintenance. The benefit of having an older car is NO PAYMENTS. You can justify some repair with no payments. Plus...

Re: These are a few more of my favorite peeves

Good to know, guess my bro was correct, for him. I don't think a Subaru will accommodate my bad back, at all. I'll take an old LeSabre or Park Avenue with high profile side wall tires, a cruiser that also protects you fairly well if you are involved in an accident. As I'm more often chaffered my Luc...

Re: These are a few more of my favorite peeves

Interesting, my next older bro absolutely won't buy a car that is not a Subaru. He loves them and has had good luck with them. As far as azure tooth and talking radios, he is like me, stubborn, old school, no smart phone, anti fad/trendy and won't change (plus he turned 72 yesterday so he is on the ...

Re: Sandusky: final twitches

Mrs. Spackler is incensed that there is no outrage in the media. Reports yesterday on the "news" had her shouting across rooms to have me change channels to see the next non-outrage report. She though it was the inviolate UM until I explained it was the less inviolate MSU and things could ...

Re: 2017 Team Thread

He had been w/ Franklin since Vanderbilt days so he was picked up as an up and coming pup and developed into pit bull recruiter. Maybe that explains the Bowen hire recently? In any event we now live in a different world from the Joe days when an asst. moving on was a major development worthy of an F...

Re: These are a few more of my favorite peeves

It is annoying while in public places hearing conversations, supposedly private, that appear directed at you only to discover they are playing office on their little cell phones stuck in their ears. A nice slap would be satisfying but likely problematic. I'm with dad on this one, as if often the cas...

Re: These are a few more of my favorite peeves

Wife regales me about the Walmart in front of store waiters who drop off the mrs. and then sit right there as you have to walk around them, oblivious to others who park legally. I've never witnessed a towing of an illegal hdqp person, ever. As to the toned babe B&W asserts wasn't hdqp, even her ...

Re: Other College Football Games

Just saw that note, what a tragedy to take a life so young. What goes on in one's head to do such a horrific thing? Sad.
