well that's just, like, your opinion, man
In the good ol' days, my late July would involve unwrapping the latest NCAA video game, downloading a Denard Robinson cover, and hyping myself up by winning 5 NCs in a row with Michigan.
Now, since the NCAA is dumb and won't pay players their value, we don't have that video game to look forward to. What signals you that football is coming? HTTV, various hype videos, other MGoBlog stuff helps... but I'm missing that NCAA videogame fix.
Ball carriers and footballs alike rejoice today as former Bear and Panther Charles Tillman has called it a career. As a Bears fan he was amazing - his nickname "Peanut" lending itself to the "Peanut Punch". He forced more fumbles as a DB than anyone over his time in the league (43, to the next closest, Charles Woodson's 24).
One of the awesome things every time the Bears played the Lions was seeing Peanut go up against Calvin Johnson. I think they battled better than most and had some serious respect for each other. There's some great writeup on their battles here: https://www.profootballfocus.com/charles-tillman-trapped-within-not-made-by-zone-scheme/
Over two games, the Lions threw at Megatron 14 times with Tillman in primary coverage. Johnson caught five passes for 70 yards. Tillman got his hands to four of them, and was in position for another but it was picked off by safety Chris Conte. He was flagged once for defensive pass interference down by the goal line on a play that didn’t look much different to half of the other physical encounters the two players engaged in over those games.
Anyone else really miss football?
Are you a grease monkey? When it comes to your car do you just fix it all yourself? Or have you put your mechanic's kids through college and bought him/her a boat? What's the story of your biggest repair job - either tackled by yourself or a willing team (for the right price). It could be a repair - OR - a big modification job.
As we know, (almost) every car's worth saving/upgrading
Let me tell you what Melba Toast is packin' right here, all right. We got 4:11 Positrac outback, 750 double pumper, Edelbrock intake, bored over 30, 11 to 1 pop-up pistons, turbo-jet 390 horsepower. We're talkin' some fuckin' muscle.
In the spirit of yesterday, what's your ONE, DEFINITIVE, AMERICAN car of choice? Do you follow Wooderson into a Chevelle SS? Do you have the Right Stuff for a Corvette? Are you a Mustang fan? Viper? New? Old? Give us a picture and a year, and let's see where the board falls when it comes to
It's finally here! Every dog's least favorite weekend of the year. Remember - shelters see almost TWICE the volume this time of year with the fireworks and dogs freaking out and running away. Take care of your pets! Let's see your MGoDogs and hope that everyone has a safe and happy 4th of July.
Here's Maize in her natural position - messing up the bed. This weekend she'll spend with her Thundershirt on either under the bed or in the back of the closet.
Per suggestions from last week, what car would you get your 15/16 year old son/daughter/self TODAY?
Many people may suggest something lame and "reasonable" like "an older civic/corolla/focus/etc". This is no place for platitudes and reason. Get on Cars.com/Autotrader.com/Ebay Motors and find one. Let's put a price cap at $5,000. Don't pick "just a car", pick the BEST car and tell us why it's better than anyone elses.
And/or you could go another way and tell us why your first car was the best for a new driver(what I'll do in the comments)
