On our way to the arena this morning, we stopped by the Rosa Parks Circle in Grand Rapids. This trip is about more just basketball



Black Dude with the Glasses is closest to the King.   Speculate.

I think OTPT could beat three or four people pictured.

Perhaps he could....

Anybody planning on voting for Doug Meyer? It would be funny if three million people cast a ballot for a local election in Pratt, KS.

Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

Ward Gets the Green Light

From the black guy with glasses. To foul away.

“And Nick said, ‘I don’t want to foul,’” Izzo recalled Tuesday. “And DJ says, ‘We don’t care if you foul this year, that doesn’t matter. We don’t have handcuffs on you like last year. Go do your thing, be who you are.’”

We have a crap ton of fouls to give underneath this year.   Just no flagrant I hope.   I also think it's funny they said that, but don't you think that stuff gets out to officials and they'll be more aware of body stuff now?

Biggest takeaway from St. John's exhibition? Marvin Clark will have similar impact for Red Storm as James Farr had for Xavier. #SJUBB

Biggest thought after Duke's exhibition? Bagley/Carter against Michigan State's front court on 11/14 is going to be beyond fascinating.

ESPN's predictions: Final Four, national title and more

With the season almost here, it's time to make some tough calls. One thing is clear: Our experts love Michigan State, Miles Bridges and Tom Izzo.

Thanks Tyler....makes sense for all involved. I think Ahrens can still be a player for us, but if not then 2 years somewhere else is better than 1.

Good interview, thanks for the link Floyd. Rome is as close to an MSUSlappy as there is for a national media member.
