  1. Ross isn’t that good and going to the NBA is a joke. He showed no leadership and seemed distracted most of the year. I wish him luck, but he is making a mistake.

  2. Large: Generally, I believe that over-the-top trtsdtionaliias tend to miss out on a lot of fun. But this is a money grab, and it pisses me off. As I said in the post, if you want to pay tribute to the ’54 team, put a freaking patch on the real jersey. Hell, I’d buy one of those and get my dad one too.Amy: We live five minutes away from Pittsburgh’s brand new casino. We’re not fans, but it’s not the end of the world, either.CB: I’ll be worried about Michigan in 2010. This year? The jerseys are probably a bigger concern. (Although once we get to the week of The Game, I’ll never admit I said that.)
