Also, what YankeeFan pointed out seems a bit odd. I do not know how their system works but auctions tend to be back and forth when it comes to bidding.

Say I make the first bid on the auction and it is $10, but I also say my max is $100, if you come in and bid $50 the auction will automatically change my bid to $50 to tie yours and mine gets the tiebreaker because it was placed first, so the auction will re-list my name at $50. That is why bidders names are placed back to back. This type of auction software is relatively common online.

Edit: No I lied, that is normally what happens, but in this case it appears that if I bid $10 and say my max is $100, and you come in and bid $150. The auction site will list my $10, then my $100, since it technically was a bid of mine, then a $150. So i would be listed back to back times but that $100 would never have been winning the auction.

so IS the wording different that originally presented? i thought it before had "game" in it. not game worn, but a game jersey. now the 'game' has been removed - i think

no. if you bid first and bid 100, it will have you at 10. then when the next guy comes in at 50, you now have the high bid at 60 (since the bid increase is set at $10).

and edit is no. the list would read
10 - you
100 - you
110 - other guy

look at the last 3 bids:
feder: 3010
feder: 3100
smac: 3110

Exactly the same, just with an obscene 4th digit placed before the smaller numbers.

Oy, mit the jerseys, and the complaining, and the kvelling! What did I do to deserve this? Didn't I ask to reminisce? Is this the thanks I get?


Yes!!!! I was there for that. Great game!!

Me too. Good times.

Me three. One of the oddest endings to a football game I've ever seen...not quite Cal-Stanford but still nutty.

Video of the '93 playoff games vs. N.Iowa at Nickerson and at Idaho is here (http://video.google.com/videosearch?hl=en&rlz=1T4GZAZ_enUS358US358&q=1993+Boston+University+Northern+Iowa+football+pl ayoff&oq=&gs_rfai=&um=1&ie=UTF-8&ei=NgShS4uPDIWVtgf45eDyBw&sa=X&oi=video_result_group&ct=title&resnum=4&ved=0CB4QqwQwAw#).
Part Four has "The Drive" and the overtime craziness.
Prior to that evening in DC last Spring, this was the best comeback I ever saw by a Terrier team.

Well, that's more like it. Never mind! :D

48 hours to hockey, baby!

Not sure if this has been mentioned yet but Max Nicastro was selected to the Hockey East All Rookie team. Congrats to him!

Errr, playing games with yourself while thinking about Megan? Shouldn't you keep that info to yourself?

Somehow didn't finish uploading/making public/adding to recap the Sunday game images. Taken care of now - http://www.uscho.com/recaps/20092010/m/03/14/mc-bu.php

Which means that Megan is the Devil. And hmm...18...that's how many wins the Terriers have this season. It makes perfect sense now! This makes him responsible for rigging Hockey East. All you people thought it was Parker, well you have just been proven wrong!

Nicastro's a game-time decision. His arm hasn't healed quite as quickly as expected. He's still having some flexibility issues, which is affecting his shooting.
