Although this has nothing to do with Jim Harbaugh, there are FIVE Michigan players at the Team USA World Junior Championships tryout camp at Boston University’s Walter Brown Arena this week – forwards JT Compher, Tyler Motte and Dylan Larkin and defensemen Michael Downing and Zach Werenski.

Because it's a sports team that is actually good this year. Glendening is a pest doing a fantastic job in a not so glamorous role. Datsyuk is playing like he's in his 20's again. The goose is loose. Let's beat the leafs.
So I decided to do a backyard ice rink this winter for the kids to skate on and as a finishing touch I iced over a block M at center ice to add some maize and blue flair. I am going to have to get another inch or so of ice over it in the next week or so to make sure the skates to beat it up too bad but it turned out pretty good and the kids call the rink Yost-South.
When I was in high school my brother and I painted up my parents side lot to look like a replica of Michigan Stadium turf complete with 6' tall "MICHIGAN" letters in each endzone. We put flood lights on conduit poles so we could play at night and I remember friends of friends that I didn't even know coming over for night pick-up games. Our quick 4-on-4 pick-up games quickly turned into full 11-on-11 battles.
I posted this because I wanted to see if anyone else did this kind of stuff or had any photos of their own personal UM fields, rinks or basketball courts.
For those that don't follow hockey, Babcock is easily one of the best in the game. Good news if true.
Today Red turns 75 years young so happy birthday to him. I was mainly interested in this because MiHockey somehow got their hands on some awesome footage of Red playing for Michigan back in the days when the hockey team played at the coliseum (the sports coliseum across from Elbel). Embed below:
