A couple weeks ago, I put together a google map with all of the Michigan bars I'm aware of (and also everything from the spreadsheet that bouje has been maintaining.) The map is here.
Hopefully this will prevent the "where's the Michigan bar in Pittsburgh/Fresno/Topeka/wherever" threads that pop up every week, but if your favorite gameday hangout isn't on here, put it in the thread and let me know. I'll do my best to keep the map up to date.
Should athletes be able to take basic classes over their athletic career and then return to take the harder classes after their playing career is over?
Most athletes get a degree in General Studies or Kinisology. These we all know are easy degrees they can manage along with the rigors of practice and film study. There are a handful of kids who have the smarts and skill to pull off a business or engineering degree while being an athlete.
I always thought it would be a better sell to kids if they could get the BS courses done over the 3-4 years and then come back and actually do the nitty gritty classes to get a degree they really want. This would allow athletes to get a useful degree for the school and not end up selling cars or insurance after the playing career ends.
What are other peoples thoughts on this?
A buddy sent this to me today. Pretty funny video of a mock group text with B1G Ten Coaches. Happy Friday!
I hope this embed works, if not, find the link at the end.
It has been a while and a good season for football went on. It was a good season, even so there was some disappointment.
Just a short update on the gardens. Pahokee is doing great, theres a pre-school/daycare program associated with our local church. The kids are eating the Mulberries and loving it!
Here is a picture the Mayor sent me a few days ago with his new healthy lifestyle and morning smoothies.
In Flint we had a good time. Our Pilot garden program went great, despite the water challenges. We grew a lot of tomatoes, fed the neighbors, and had the kids from around our garden excited to check out what grew. They got to try squash for dinner. The older shut in neighbor from down the block came out and dug out the potatoes. I feel great everytime I go to the garden and Flint is struggling but I think it helps people to see us care.
If you missed what we are doing in Flint here is a video from Double UP Foodbucks and you can see our kids and garden in it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3FNxb5JM5U
Our website is teamgardens.org and our cool #EATING shirts that support the garden are available there.
