re: Should basketball coaches be able to decline free throws? - oilfieldtiger
the NBA is going to end up having to take action, since things are reaching a logical extreme w/ guys jumping on an opponent's back during free throws and fouling the inbounder now (I confess I did not know you could do that, I figured it was a technical). When it effects the entertainment value ...

re: How much snow did you get yesterday? - oilfieldtiger
about 4" or so here in Pittsburgh. I drove the PA turnpike from Philly to Pittsburgh yesterday though. Thought I left w/ plenty of time but was hung up by a wreck just after Harrisburg then a slew of 18 wheelers that couldn't make it up a particularly steep hill going up to the Allegheny Tunnel....

re: 88 year old badass former Vikings coach Bud Grant wears polo in -6 weather - oilfieldtiger
An even more poignant moment like this was back in 2010, when the game was moved to the U of Minnesota's stadium after the Metrodome roof collapsed. It was similar conditions, air temp around 0 and windy. At halftime they honored the Vikings 50th anniversary team (two LSU guys on that team btw ...

re: any Subaru wrx or Sti owners? - oilfieldtiger
A 2014 WRX is our daily driver. ~30k miles, no mechanical issues. It's a bit of a drag buying premium gas and putting on winter tires, but it's really fun to drive. Room enough for two carseats in the back as well. My wife was a bit leery about the standard transmission at first (she'd learn o...

re: WTF has happened to Linda Cohn? - oilfieldtiger
the old Tony Kornheiser radio show had a running joke about Linda Cohn having 12 toes. Some guest was on and said "12 toes, what, like 6 on each foot?" Tony jumps in w/ "No, 7 and 5. She's got 12 the hard way."...

re: If you knew Les would be back.... - oilfieldtiger
I think the crowd (at least the folks I was around) would have been much more vocal and frankly hostile about our failures early. I think the general feeling was like "well, I guess this is just how it ends...." I would have stilled clapped plenty loud pre-game for the seniors, but the standing ...
