Oh Canada! / Re: Why should I go to an American school?
« on: June 26, 2007, 10:53:17 PM »
I can think of a few good reasons to stay in Canada:

1) Tuition -- Tuition in Canada ranges from 7000 - 22000 (with most schools around the 10,000 range). Why pay 45,000/year when you don't have to?

2) Admission standards -- due to Canada's small population, less people apply to law schools and thus there is less distinction between the best schools and the worst schools in terms of admission standards. A 166 could get you into any school in Canada

3) Rankings -- there is less pressure to get into a "good" school in Canada. Though a school's rank is somewhat important in Canada, it is no where near as competitive as it is in the US

However, I've heard that significant scholarships are more common in the US, so if you're getting a full or partial ride, that may affect your decision to study in the states

Lower Admission standards, less emphasis on rankings, less pressure, LESS GAP BETWEEN THE RICH ("good" school) and POOR ("bad" school), Such typical Canadian socialist thinking. You're certainly entitled to it. That said, my 3000/year tuition did lead me to stay in Canada.

Nix the Dempster as starter idea. Apparently it was some bizarre Lou Pinella flight of fancy.

what a ridiculous idea.

Dear Starting Pitchers,

Come in, take a seat.  I've written down some ideas I wanted to share with you guys and...oh damn, I must have left my notes in my office.  Hang tight, I'll be right back.

that's a lot of peanuts that he can buy.

Wait, I thought you had committed to buying the peanuts.  The players' union will have your head.

I opted for someone else. Someone who's ERA is far higher, on the wrong side of 8.00 in fact. Still it's a 4th closer after drafting only one closer.

Dear Barry Zito,

Don't you dare get good again.

Dear Barry Zito,

A year supply of peanuts to toss for me. you'll take it of course.

Big Heap of Scrap.

Toss is right.  Enjoy him.  And when eats away at your team's hearts and guts, leaving it a dried-out empty husk, just be glad you aren't a Giants fan.  Unless you are.


Zito's career splits suggests that he is lights out in June and July.

Here they are:

June: 3.80 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, 6.3 K / 9 IP
July: 3.51 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, 6.4 K / 9 IP

Meh.

Still, supposing you're right, I just don't trust his career stats since they reflect a bygone era in which he
-was under the tutelage of an Oakland coaching staff that turns everything it touches into gold (Gaudin, Blanton, wtf?)
-was relatively underpaid and gave a sh*t
-benefitted from a lineup much better than the likes of Ray Durham, Pedro Feliz and Rich Aurilia

Not to mention that he was bad for my clubhouse chemistry and, apparently, a terrible influence on the impressionable young Carlos Zambrano.  Best of luck to whoever gets him, but I look forward to rooting against yet another overpaid chump.  :P


EDIT: Not that I really blame him if he does lay an egg this season.  Whether he spends his free time the next 7 years studying tape of hitters and chiseling himself into peak physical shape, or whether he spends it eating cheetos and recording adult contemporary tunes, he gets his $126 mill just the same.  Not bad work if you can get it.

that's a lot of peanuts that he can buy.

Canada "foldex" breed cat


what's a foldex cat?

Its the breed of cat in the pic, they are bred in Canada, I think they call them that becuase his/her ears are floded down in the pic. So I guess they have "foldex" ears?

reminds me of a mounty. I likes.
