My Michigan - Purdue prediction

The Big 10 Network: Ruining the college football season for Big 10 fans nationwide

As the Big 10 Network and the cable cartel are still in a full bore pissing match, one where the only loser is Big 10 fans, I'm stuck listening to the Wolverines over the radio AGAIN. Which means 4 hours of the über-homer radio play-by-play team of Frank "I'm too big to talk sports on my talk show that no one listens to" Beckmann and Jim "When I played for Bo" Brandstatter.

Thus, my prediction for today's game is...

That I'll be in a great deal of pain by halftime, as I'll be ready to plunge a pair of icepicks into my ears after suffering through 2 quarters of Beckmann and Brandstatter blathering on and on about how the refs jobbed Michigan.

This has been the worst college football season in memory, thanks to the total cluelessness of the Big 10, and their fiasco of a network. Thank you so much for fucking up my fall.

    Amen, Father Big Al. My sentiments exactly. I can't recall being less interested in Michigan football in a given season. And I feel like I have no choice in the matter. I can't believe how badly the Big Ten has stuck it to their fans.

    Yes, I could sit and listen to the radio as you did. But virtually all I can think about is that I SHOULD BE ABLE TO WATCH THIS. So once it was apparent that Purdue wasn't going to put up a fight, I went to the movies. And when I came home, I watched SEC football - as I have virtually every Saturday this season - because that conference seems to care more about letting fans watching its signature games rather than try to hoard them onto its own cable network for a blatant money grab.

    I know there are plenty of other Michigan fans who just find a sports bar that shows Big Ten Network and watch their team no matter what. I totally resent being put into such a position, and might hold onto this grudge for a long time.

  3. 白癜风的临床表现是什么?

    白癜风为皮损色素完全脱失,呈瓷白色斑,白斑大小形态不一,境界清楚,边缘有色素沉着增加,无自觉症状,暴晒后易出现红斑,甚至水泡,自觉有灼痛、炎症后,白斑可比原发范围大,皮损可发生于任何部位,但较常见于指背、腕、前臂、面颈、生殖器及其周围。白斑常对称或单侧分布,甚至如带状沿神经分布。头部白斑边缘无色素沉着区,或偶有白发而看不出白斑。有的白斑可自行消退,一些患者在夏季日晒后,白斑中心或边缘色素再生,但到冬季色素又可消退。部分患者可伴有粘膜色素减退以口唇多见,外生殖器次之,眼色素亦可受累,但一般不影响视力,这种粘膜白癜风不同于通常所说的粘膜白斑。

    外阴白斑以往多主张手术切除,但术后复发率高。近年来通过对以往所谓外阴白斑进行长期随访,发现癌变率仅2%左右;即使已有上皮非典型增生者,也仅有一小部分可发展为原位癌或浸润癌。且实践证明,为控制局部瘙痒,或恢复外阴皮肤正常形态,药物治疗均能取得较为满意的效果。故目前大多主张采用非手术治疗,但治疗后仍应继续随访,特别对增生型营养不良而有溃破、硬结者更应提高警惕,以防发生癌变。
    为了统一认识,1975年国际外阴病研究会决定取消“外阴白斑”病名,改称为“慢性外阴营养不良”(ChronicVuIVardystroph),并根据组织病理变化的不同,将其分为3种不同的类型。
    外阴白斑是发生在外阴皮肤粘膜处的白色病变,以病变处皮肤增厚、粗糙、萎缩、弹性减退、皮色脱失为特征,常见于大阴唇或小阴唇内侧及阴蒂,严重时可延至阴道、会阴及肛门周围的一种慢性常见妇科疾病。
