I wish we had media timeouts (times out? But that's another argument all together) in HS football games. I'd settle for uniform 60 seconds for charged timeouts.

Actually he's been dead going on 5.5 years.

I'm never any good at the "Dead or Alive?" game.

I knew he was retired. Does that count for anything?

No... You did the first whistle after 4 minutes... Do you see why?

I think they should just use the NCAA rule and freeze the shooter rather than waiting if you have free throws - that would make things a lot simpler! Also, be sure to get your shooter before going to the timeout!

No, they're not truly dead, they just act like it while at work. They're city government employees after all.

You probably also know a lot of dead people that vote in elections.
