Can I get a thumbs-up for the ref turning a blind eye to a hand ball in the box today for the Women's soccer team ?

How tall is Destinee Hooker 'cause damn, she looks good out there.

Salvador came back, right on the heels of Brodeur and Hedberg, so I like NJ's chances of keeping Parise a lot more today than I did on Sunday. Not sure it'll be enough but I think he's looking for...

apparently they decided not to forfeit that pick ... why would they, when they know they'll be picking 30th next year ?!!

I think it's a different thing to omit a short stint from a resume vs. omitting it, for example, on an application where they expect a detailed work history.
