I was on Facebook and there was a link from mgoblue about some of the new security rules. One of them is that small cameras are permitted as long as they don't have detachable lenses. Is there something special about cameras with detachable lenses that I don't know about? I will admit that if I take my 500mm lens, it might be distracting to people around me but my 300mm lens is pretty small. What's even funnier is that I can get a small camera without a detachable lens that gives me an equivalent to my big lens. Are they afraid that someone may be selling pictures from the game and they aren't getting a taste of that money? There are two holes ot that theory...trademark infringement and the official pictures are far nicer than anything from the stands.
anyways, I guess this means that if I do go, I'll have to borrow my former non-SLR camera from my mom.
My first thread and my first attempt at video editing. Enjoy!
Several weeks ago, there was a post regarding Getting to know the freshmen, found over at Mgoblue.com. At the time, I didn't realize that this feature would continue for several weeks. For those of you who can't wait for Saturday, and who are looking for every morsel of information on the team, you might want to check it out again.
The feature speaks well of our newest players, with entries that are humorous and insightful (funny: just like the some of the moderation choices here.) It also helps to put a face with a player's name, since most of these guys aren't as recognizable as Denard et al.
As the season approaches, we start to see more and more "Where can I catch the game in (insert city here)" posts. This is meant as an informational posts to all new users out there who recently joined, as well as keeping (trying as I know this can be a lost cause sometimes) older members pleased.
For those that don't know an actual MGoBoard exists apart from the ticker on the right hand side, there is a very helpful Michigan bar locator thread. This thread can be found on the MGoBoard page or the mouseover on the tab above, that will help you find any bars that you might want to go to along with being able to ask for other locations. If you forget to look here and post on the board most people will be helpful, one or two will point you to the appropriate thread, and you will also get responses such as this everytime (similar to double posts).
Also, here is the link to the google maps page containing all (known) Michigan friendly bars.
I know this will be forgotten by next week, but maybe some people will remember. Also, these always got deleted really quickly last year with the response to just check the correct thread (from the Mods).
The way too early forecast is looking pretty good!
Not as creative as the "There are..." posts, but a nice reminder nonetheless.
