UPDATE: So many readers gave us tickets. I still have six more after emailing winners from this thread. If you still wanna come, email me. I'll be going in via the Crisler steps at about 2:30]
The same reader who gave us a pair of freebies last month offered them to us again.
With all the older alumni there for Homecoming I'd like them to go to somebody who'll make up for the relative quiet elsewhere. SOMEBODY has to yell "H!" or else we're just spelling
"M! I! C. ... i. g? a. n."
If you'd like a free pair of okay-ish, corner-ish tickets for this Saturday, tell us the craziest thing you ever did in Ann Arbor. Or if that could still get you in trouble, the second craziest thing you ever did in Ann Arbor.

(If you'd like to respond but don't need tickets, write "NO ENTRY" at the top of your reply).
- Make sure you can print the tix or meet up w/ me before I go into the game
- I'll pick the winner Friday afternoon at 3:00pm EST
- I'll email the winner and you'll have an hour to respond or I move on to 2nd place
- Please check with all spouses, travel schedules, etc. before entering.
I thought it might be prudent to post this here. Apparently quite a few Drupal sites were hacked recently. Hopefully MGoBlog was updated before this came about...
According to himself (@alexcook616) on twitter, Alex Cook (no relation to this Brian Cook) is joining the staff this fall as a basketball writer. If you've followed him on Twitter, Alex has lots of good content, including very interesting "player comparison" charts as to what to expect from the new crop of freshmen.
Give him a follow and look forward to even more (He's not replacing Ace, but joining Ace's coverage) quality Hoops coverage going forward.

I know a lot of you are waiting for your HTTV stuff, and maybe one or two of you missed Hokepoints this morning, or found (gasp) copy errors in recent posts that weren't promptly rectified.
My father, the source of my Michigan fandom, my model for righteousness and business ethics, my close friend and the proof that everything they say about living life to its fullest is correct, passed away suddenly last Friday.
100% Worst Thing Ever tag: deployed.
I'm going to slowly ease back into my MGoDuties as this week progresses, with the first priority getting HTTV back on track and then getting caught up on the needs of our patient clientele, before full content resumes.
