Just in time for the season to start I finished up my latest Lego project, a Michigan football helmet. Roughly the same size as a standard helmet but as you'd expect horrifyingly unconfortable to wear.
Also including a picture of the football that I buit last winter. It's hollow and slightly larger than a game ball but fortunately fits in a nice display case on my desk. Each model is about 1,400 pieces. Learned a lot from making the football that made designing the helmet much easier.
Since a few people have asked here are the Lego Digital Designer files for the helmet and football. Word of caution that the helmet was designed much more efficiently than the football as you'll quickly see.
Lets see what these talking heads have to say..........
In an attempt to help pass the time until Sept. 3, ESPN continues to generate "content" to keep the fans of college football occupied. Here's their poll on the best uniforms in the B10. Without question it's the Maize & Blue (currently leading). The only problem I have with the poll is that it should be for the entire NCAA football ranks... and once again the Maize & Blue would win imho. Thoughts?
I like to get my fantasy updates via podcast for the drive to work. I used to listen to ESPN's 'Fantasy Football Focus' but it is pretty much garbage now that (former Wolverine) Nate Ravitz left. Matthew Berry has no one to keep his tangents in check so most of the show has nothing to do with football. At least Stephania Bell's injury updates are ok, but she isn't always on, and they rarely give her much time. Any of you have some recommendations for good fantasy advice? Thanks in advance.
Not that rare, but an interesting article. Sadly, in Alaska, they are still trapped for their fur.
