    • You can read the letter below:


    • people seriously protested “the influx of Islam” outside of the downtown Islamic Da’wah Center owned by Hakeem Olajuwon, the only athlete to not spectacularly disappoint this city.
    • When Peyton Manning left Indy he wanted to come to Houston, but Gary Kubiak vetoed it.
    • technically you weren’t supposed to have steep inclines on an Olympic Marathon course; we suspected that organizers had inserted the hill because Jerome Drayton, the Canadian hope for a medal in the event, was strong on the hills)
    • Due to my standing in the sport and the fact that I’d decided not to run the 10,000 meters event, ABC invited me to provide commentary for its coverage. Lasse Viren won as expected; again, the graceful, lithe Finn flashed across the line, looking more like a rocker than a jock, prevailing in a contemplative individual sport in which you competed more against yourself than other runners or the clock. I wasn’t about to say anything about the shadow of blood-doping hanging over Viren or disabuse fans in their hope that an alternative sort of sports hero had emerged. Indeed, I had also been placed in this alternative camp—even though my greatest pleasure was cleaning the clock of Harvard rivals in the smelly dark IC4A field houses of the cold Northeast.
    • That seemingly inconsequential break in my ritual, however, turned out to be crucial.
    • t the Munich Games, my racing flats had been custom-made by the top designer from Adidas, the German shoe company that then dominated the athletic-shoe market.
    • Our goal and shared focus (too narrow a focus, as it turned out) was to produce the lightest pair of racing flats in history.
    • I waited in the warmup area. Instead of cursing my bad luck, I reverted to my default mode of dealing with stress: movement. I jogged back and forth in my training shoes. For some reason, I remained calm. I felt confident that this would work out.
    • through better chemistry, anything was possible.
    • IVONA is a high quality speech synthesizer. It’s main purpose is to convert a text to speech (TTS). IVONA technology allows to create digital voices speaking various languages. IVONA voices are recognized for their natural and expressive sound. These facts are confirmed by the numerous honors and awards. The most important are major prizes in prestigious, international contest Blizzard Challenge in the years 2006, 2007 and 2009. Voice generated by IVONA synthesizer was considered to be the most natural and closest to a human voice.  After installation votes, ivona_sapi5_voice_v1.6.60.dll copy file into directory C: Program Files IVONA IVONA 2 voice x86 – for x86 bit Windows or C: Program Files (x86) IVONA IVONA 2 voice x86 – for x64 bit windows.
    • Keep in mind that Bill O’Brien had the chance to keep Wade Phillips around when he took over this team, but kicked him to the curb (for Romeo Crennel, no less), only to watch Wade and the man he replaced cruise to a Super Bowl win last year. EAT SHIT, BILL.
    • Anyway, there is nothing to suggest that Osweiler deserved the $37 million in guarantees that the Texans paid, a contract they threw down just so that they can look like they care about addressing the quarterback position.
    • Osweiler was then benched for a wet-armed Peyton Manning and had the nerve to pout about it when Manning—who is only one of the greatest quarterbacks in league history—kept the job all the way through to the Super Bowl.
    • What has always sucked: Bob McNair. Bob McNair is the worst.
    • So of course this town would adore a loathsome billionaire and his delusional prick of a defensive end.
    • . I swear this would be a lethal receiving corps if Big Ben were the QB and not Steve from Stranger Things.
    • 6. The reason the Texans made the playoffs last year was the defense. A defense built by Wade Phillips, who the Texans didn’t keep as defensive coordinator because Romeo Crennel needed another sideline to destroy.
