Zoltan the Space Emperor
Also, water is wet.
Attended the event for Zoltan's charity at Professor Thoms.
Upon entering, Zoltan immediately introduces himself and offers to buy me a beer. Nicest guy, happy to talk with everyone there, took photos with whomever asked (including the one below) and signed autographs all around as well. Yes, I was a bit of a giddy school girl.
I also asked how he was enjoying Cinci and he just mentioned how he'd soon be a free agent.
Great envoronment to watch the game, and am proud to have such an amazing representative of our university.
(I originally had a Bell's of course, but my friend bought me the BL afterward. I also offered to buy Zoltan a beer to return the favor but he politely declined)

"The NFL Players Association annually recognizes players who go above and beyond to perform community service in their team cities and hometowns.
The Byron “Whizzer” White Award is the highest honor the NFLPA can bestow on a player. The award was established by the professional football players of America to acknowledge a debt of gratitude to one of their own, Supreme Court Justice Byron Raymond “Whizzer” White—scholar, athlete, patriot, humanitarian and public servant. The NFLPA presents this prestigious annual award to the player that is just as dedicated off the field as he is on the field.
During annual NFLPA locker room meetings, players selected teammates to receive NFLPA PULSE Awards for their outstanding work in the community. These winners were invited to submit applications for the Byron “Whizzer” White Award and received monetary donations for their foundations or a charity of their choice.
A panel of peers will select five finalists from the pool of PULSE winners. All finalists will receive additional charity donations and one will be named the 2013 Byron “Whizzer” White Award winner and receive an additional $100,000 for his charity. The 2013 Byron “Whizzer” White judging panel includes – Mike Florio (Pro Football Talk), Jim Trotter (Sports Illustrated), Richard Trumka (President, AFL-CIO) and Brian Waters (Pro Player Insiders). The winner will be announced at the NFLPA’s State of the Union press conference at the Super Bowl media center in New Orleans."
Before I get in to the actual point of the post, we wanted to first thank you all greatly for your support during the Zoltan Mesko Foundation Patriots London Ticket Raffle. We exceeded our initial net revenue goal and the funds are going to be extremely helpful for all of the events we are planning during the off season, especially the second annual ZoliOke in June. Again, we can't thank you all enough for your both your support with helping get the foundation off the ground and during our careers at Michigan. We truly have the most loyal and dedicated fans in the country without a doubt.
For those of you who don't know, Zoltan is currently growing out a... interesting... mustache to support Movember USA and their prostate cancer fund. He is entering the final few days and we are trying to rally donations at the peak of his lip sweater. You can check out his Mo Space page here and donate through his account: http://us.movember.com/mospace/3358725
That. Just. Happened. Thanks again for everyone's support and expect updates from ZMF on future events in the very near future.
This was posted in the Omameh thread by Tim North, former Michigan DE, director of the Zoltan Mesko Foundation, and new MGoBlog user. He asked if someone could start a new thread as he doesn't have enough points to do so.
It's so great to see Patrick be recognized for his selflessness and the time he spent at C.S. Mott Children's Hospital throughout his time on the football team - he is truly a Michigan Man in every sense of the word.
In an effort not to take any attention away from Patrick, I am posting on this thread as a new user on MGoBlog (could not create my own thread) and wanted to reach out to the MGoBlog community about the newly established Zoltan Mesko Foundation (http://www.facebook.com/ZoltanMeskoFoundation) and our current fundraising promotion with the New England Patriots and Celebrities for Charity. My name is Tim North, and I am a former U of M Football defensive end (2005-09) and current director for the Zoltan Mesko Foundation. Zoltan has greatly appreciated the support from MGoBlog since his freshman year (yes, he was well-aware of the Space Emperor title in 2005), and wanted to make sure we connected with U of M fans to raise awareness for the Zoltan Mesko Foundation and our current promotion: http://www.celebritiesforcharity.org/raffle/zoltan-meskos-london-ticket-...
If a more seasoned MGoBlogger could make a new topic about the Zoltan Mesko Foundation we would GREATLY appreciate the help. Again, we do not want to take any attention away from Patrick so it would be awesome if there was a seperate thread to discuss.
Thanks again everyone and Go Blue!
Tim North and the Zoltan Mesko Foundation
