a terrible blight on our fine country
Got the case of the Mondays. The children are going to be stampeding around the streets very soon around here, so I am getting fist ready to shake at them whilst yelling at them to get off of my lawn.
This was a thread awhile back ago. I'm talking 2-3 years ago on here when I was a non-member. Anyways, what is the best stadium you have been to and the worst stadium?
Would love to hear experiences, especially stories about bad ones since the last time we did this I got quite a laugh from some stories.
My best- Fenway Park. One of the true grand old houses of baseball left standing. They don't make them like that anymore and it was a throwback to Tiger Stadium.
Worst- BY FAR, spartan stadium. Went there in 2003 and 2007. Place is a dump, fans are assholes, upper deck felt like it was swaying at times. They can put up all the HD video screens they want. Just like you can put lipstick on a pig but it is still a pig.
Honorable mention for best: Tiger Stadium (one of the last ones to leave the stadium when it closed. Very sad day for me. Remember crying as I was leaving for the final time).
Also I visited this piece of baseball history last weekend-
Hamtramck Stadium. Home of the Detroit Stars of the Negro League back in the 1930s. One of very few Negro League stadiums still surviving. Some great players played on that field like Satchel Paige, Josh Gibson and Turkey Stearnes of the Stars.
I know many people are sick of Tebow news (or just sick with ebola and whatnot), but this seems worth posting to me because it may affect our own Tom Brady. I don't mean to say that Tebow could take the team from Brady, of course, but he might come in as a wildcat QB at times and make the Pats that much more versatile and hard to prepare for.
After two solid years in the ACC with Maryland, O'Brien's time in Madison wasn't what most of us expected, and after Stave took control of the job the writing was on the wall.
O'Brien has one year of eligibility left. With Wisconsin, O'Brien completed 52-of-86 passes for 523 yards along with three touchdowns and one interception. Best of luck to him.
40 schools including the entire Big XII, SEC, and Pac 12, and also Central Michigan who they play in 2015. To me this is quite ridiculous. I can understand not going anywhere in the Big XII, but FORTY schools? C'mon Gundy.
Baseless speculation is like the engine for the internet. Given that, I wanted to kick around a few topics and get the board's temperature on a few items. And for you Festivus fans that don't like this thread - I challenge you to a wrestling match. Best answer will have a donation given, in their name, to the Human Fund.
1. Will Devin Gardner's last game in a Michigan uniform be a playoff game?
2. Is Michigan the next B1G team to go to the Final Four in MBB?
3. Who is the final unbeaten team in the B1G this year in football?
4. How many recruits commit at the BBQ in July? Who are they?
5. Which current recruit is going to shock us by picking Michigan? Which recruit is going to shock us by not picking Michigan?
Per ebay, the auction ended and the winning bid was $18,100. The score of The Game is engraved in the ring as well.
