Less fundamentals, I believe.

You can have some skills but not have the fundamentals of them.
Athleticism helps to cover or make up the difference.

Yes, Lloyd, I remember those trucks. Think they parked by that 'Municipal Services' shed (the would-be name of our band, had we shown some initiative to actually form one). Between the 10 of us, we had only one car, parked across from the shed. The first nite, the housemate who owned it made the mistake of not locking it up and it got broken into. It was stripped clean, including the tape deck. The next nite, he locked it and it was busted into again and the only contents remaining -- a 6-pack of Coke -- was stolen.

When you lived there did anyone sleep in a room the size of a large walk-in closet on the east side of the building on the 2nd floor? Somehow, that was my bedroom. I shoehorned a twin bed and a dresser in there, but it was worth it to pay a little less rent than the others.

Brain damage article last week from Harvard.

Now study about heart damage from marijuana out today.

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/24/technology/fcc-new-net-neutrality-rules.html?partner=rss&emc=rss&smid=tw-nytimes&_r=0

But don't mind me....carry on


You are getting the science completely wrong, but that is not really a surprise.  The Harvard article did not indicate "brain damage" rather reported that there were changes in brain matter (an increase) that correlated with smoking.  I'll note that the statistical significance of the data can be questioned, but regardless, there studies cannot differentiate between whether the change in brain structure results in increased function or decreased function.

So it would be equally true to say that smoking marijuana makes you smarter according to there study (note the point is not that it makes you smarter, just that there data does not speak to one or the other at all).

As for the heart studies, again you are getting the science wrong.  It says that smoking marijuana causes an acute (meaning temporary) increase in the probability of immediately having a heart attack.  The increase is consistent with the increase due to having sex, climbing a flight of stairs or going for a jog.

Of the many great Ganos stories, my favorite had to be when we moved in, the gas literally was not connected, and had a notice on the furnace from the gas company saying it didn't meet code.  We pointed that put to Chris, who said, "no worry, guys, I hook it up."  And he did.  I gess we are still alive because we didn't turn the heat on un til Novemeber, and the airflow was still powerful enough with the windows closed that CO leaks had no effect.

That club on the corner was mostly a local joint-kind of a date spot, but we headed over there a few times.

Remember the garbage trucks parked behind the house all the time??

Bagpiper--Hawks game now killing me--why so many goals at the end of period end of games??

The best team doesn't often win the tournament. Uconn was not the best team this year but they happened to win. In fact I'd say in the last 5 years only 2 of the winners were the best team(louisville and kentucky). The best team doesn't always win. That's what makes sports great.

The "best" team throughout a season doesn't win tournaments quite often.  It's the team that is the hottest.  Does it take some "luck" to win the NCAA Tournament?  Sure.  But does it take some "luck" to win the NBA Championship?  Yup.  Ask Ray Allen, he didn't even look down to make sure he was behind the 3 point line at the end of regulation in Game 6.  So why is the NCAA Tournament a crapshoot but the NBA Playoffs are not?  You could find examples of it in every single sport.

Brian Snow tweeted this on the topic.

I keep reading that basketball players are less skilled than 30 yrs ago, yet I keep watching games and saying "Damn these dudes are skilled"

I think people equate more athletic to less skilled. It just isn't reality. They are now more athletic and as skilled if not more skilled

So it looks like Athletes and Traditionals can intermix.

Capitalism is great for many things....not so great for sports.

I bet you'd throw up in your mouth if someone made the same argument about healthcare.

Do you have a special Adam Smith decoder ring that tells you when capitalism is good and when it's bad?

In all seriousness, I actually agree with you. I think this would suck for competitive balance, but like the NCAA issues we debated in another thread, I think changes like this are inevitable.
