Sad news again for former Sartell High School, SJU, and Cathedral High School coach Dean Taylor.  Knowing Dean, he'll triumph once again, but my thoughts and prayers go out to the Taylor clan.

Taylor Resigns

Yeah, saw that yesterday.  Have to put the prayer rug to good use now.

And... science has answered the most important question of all:

Water is always a good choice to rehydrate after working out, but researchers suggest beer is better

Forget water or Gatorade. The drink of choice to rehydrate after a workout is beer.  Researchers at Granada University in Spain found beer can help retain liquid better than water alone.

Fury;

You live in the Big Apple, right?  Is it bad or are they just a bunch of sissies?  I was at SJU for the Halloween blizzard of '91 (it was '91 wasn't it?) when it dropped three feet over night. Dominos still delivered, but classes were cancelled for a day until a path could be plowed across the tundra.

It was definately 1991, the day after the Twins won the World Series.  8-)

I believe Fury mentioned last week he was going to South Africa to visit his wife's family.I don't think he is in NYC for the current snow event. :D
As of now they're on DOUBLE SECRET Probation!

Fury is currently in S. Africa and usually his internet is pretty spotty at best.  Just had a fun drive from Brainerd to Sartell coming back from some travel basketball.  Lots of cars in the ditches and poor visibility.

The East Coast is full of winter-weather weinies, which makes for grand spectacular sport. I usually fire up the grill, crack a beer and watch the hijinks in the hood.

Meanwhile, today I checked in on the webcast from main street back in the Minny homeland. They were finishing the town's biggest event, an x-c ski race, in the middle of 8-12'' and everyone was having an incredible time at the finish line.

Six months and three weeks until kickoff. We haven't even reache the mid point of the off season yet. I wish I was a bear that could curl up in a cave and hibernate.

Maybe so, but at least you have the AFL starting in a month or so and with your new MCC affiliation you'll be sitting pretty.   :)
What are the prospects for your Hawks this year?

The Hawks are favored (I should spell favoured) to win it all. Yeah, we'll see.  But yesterday all betting on the AFL season was suspended by one agency and the other bookies are getting nervous.

Kubiak, are you still busting skulls with that Aussie who supports Essendon?  Two days it came out that the club had systemically violated the drug rules all year. The club was doping the players, every single player on the side. The club doctor giving injections and masking agents to beat testing. It all fell apart when a player refused to go along this year. It's threatening to bring the whole league administration down. It could happen that the AFL gets reorganized under a new administration scheme. It's baseball's problems on steriods (so to speak) down here.

No I haven't worked with him for a few years now.  I do keep in touch with him so I will have to give him some hell about his team. ;D

Pete, I found that in the main there were two types of drivers out there. Those who didn't vary their driving in the snow from what they do on dry pavement. They were very dangerous. Then there were those who went about 5 mph, when they could go 35 or so. Also dangerous. Is that your observation?

Spot on, Ret.

I particularly like the Bethesda/Alexandria types who kick their SUVs into 4WD a couple of wintry weekends a year and think that just because their rigs will accelerate well in the snow, they will automatically stop just as efficiently.

That said, I do miss my old Alaskan pickup in the rare storms. When I sold it, repete jr., then 7, sat on the front step and cried ... already smarter than the old man it now seems

I (then an Illini, now a long-standing Michigander) was once in Birmingham (AL) when they got 3 inches of snow.  You would have thought the world was ending!  I would have barely slowed down, except the other drivers were all over the road (and off it).  I beat a hasty retreat to the motel - it all melted by the next morning.  They at least had the excuse that the nearest snowplow or salt truck was probably 500 miles north! ;)
