somehow we're only 124th
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.
EDIT: They cut the player who got in legal trouble. Please feel free to delete.
Maybe I am reading into things a little too much, but I saw this tweet from a 49ers reporter...
49ers lectern has been replaced by table and chairs. Looks as if 1230 presser will be more involved… http://instagram.com/p/wuI5uCj9FJ/

EDIT: Apparently one of the players got in legal trouble. It could be to discuss his situation. Who knows..... Feel free to delete if that is the case....
Did a quick search and didn't see this posted. A quick video of our good pal Tim Kawakami having a brush up with John Herrera.
Tried to embed, but I don't think it worked. Here is a link.
SO WHATS WITH THE STORIES ABOUT THE RAIDERS. All this good vibe from UMland is being met with good vibe from RaiderNation. It's like Schroedinger's Box -- both stories can't be true at the same time, yet, they seem to be. This is one freakin' weird cat.
Our Public Enemy #1 -- er, well, Messenger of Public Enemy #1 -- is SJ Mercury News beat reporter Tim Kawakami. He's been mentioned repeately as the guy close to the 49ers linking Jim to the Raiiiiiderrrrs (in gravelly voice). He was the guy Mike & Mike mentioned this morning (I can't stand the one Mike but I'm ok with the other Mike). So I checked out his twitter, and saw this from just earlier today:
There is definite interest on the Raiders' side. There is curiosity (or more) on Harbaugh's side. From there, who knows what happens.
"Confident" is the wrong word. Just saying it makes sense... MT @WyomingRaider you seem pretty confident Coach Jim will be Raiders HC
OK, that's not a guy saying, it's a done deal and definitely going to happen. It's guesswork. It's an opinion.
I'm not saying ITS HARBAUGHING but I'm saying ITS NOT NOT HARBAUGHING.
Just trying to make sense out of this quagmire. DEC 29 CANT COME SOON ENUF.
Or is there something more concrete people are reporting about the Raiders?
The new Solid Verbal episode just posted and Dan and Ty talk to Brian about the coaching search. Solid Verbal is one of my favorite sports podcasts and it'll be interesting to hear what their opinions are vs. Brian's.

EDIT: Brian's segment starts at 20:18 of the show.
With the new ambassador position opening up in Cuba, what impact might this have on our chances at Harbaugh? Insiders in the White House are saying Harbaugh is Plan A and they are calling it operation Bay Area to Bay of Pigs (Bay to Bay for short).
