"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."
For a moment I wondered if I was alone in feeling pride above all else in the wake of that heartbreaking loss. I should have known better. From Ace's post-game to hundreds of comments on the board, the blog has shown a fantastic display of sportsmanship in fandom. No moping, a shockingly minimal amount of attempted Sparty trolling, and an overflow of love and support for the team we put on the floor this season.
I've never visited RCMB (won't troll the squad but I'll troll the trolls), but I have a sneaking suspicion its not a pretty place right now. Pat yourselves on the back MGoBlog, for living up to the inflated ideals of the "Michigan Man," if only for a day. I enjoyed reading all of your input. This is what makes the platform so unique and meaningful for all of us.
My top 3 are:
1. Second win over MSU
2. Win over Illinois
3. Win at Wisconsin
I picked the second game vs MSU over the Illinois game because it gave the team the season sweep and it propelled us to the first place spot. The Illinois win was for obvious reasons and I picked the win at Wisconsin because it gave us the first major win of the season and should how good this team was.
Great season for the team. It was unbeleivable watching them play this year. If you would have told me on December 15th, that we would win the B1G 10 Championship by 3 games and go to the Elite Eight, I would not have beleived you.
Thank you guys for a wonderful season. Lots of great memories. It's a shame that we're not going farther, but all in all, it's hard to look at this season as anything less than a success.
Hoping we can get as many of our guys to return, that way we can have more great seasons to come.
That's all that needs to be said. Let's do this.
While we wait for our game to tip-off, I figured this would be something nice to fill the time.
WCJB TV20 in Florida could not show highlights of the Florida-Dayton game last night so they made their own highlights instead. Video below:
