"What (Michigan coaches) told me is that they're focusing on point guards right now, but if anything opens up, they'll definitely come back on and recruit me as hard as they were," said Towns
A friend of mine who recently moved to the Bay Area raised an interesting question this week:
Fellow Michigan alums - Is there a standard response to being told "Go Blue!" by a stranger when they see you/your kid/your car in Michigan gear? I feel like there should be some sort of "'peace be with you'...'and also with you'" sort of call-and-answer, but I'm always caught off guard. And it's happening *a lot* since we moved to the Bay Area...
This seemed like the best place for her to get some good answers, so I agreed to post it for her. Until she asked me, I would have said my usual response is to repeat "Go Blue" back to the person in a firmer tone and ever-so-slightly louder voice. But from now on I'm going with alaikum salaam.
So I've been going through every kind of music that I have enjoyed over the course of the last 20 years. Neutral Milk Hotel's In The Aeroplane Over The Sea album is probably the greatest thing ever recorded. I first heard ITAOTS about 15 years ago, and I HATED it. Wrong place wrong time. I came back to the album in probably 2008 or so, it just happened to be on some big bundle of music that I downloaded.
It probably sat on my PC for a couple of months and then one day while listening to music on shuffle the album came on. It made sweet sweet love to my ears. Since that day I've been hooked.
What and or whom is your Neutral Milk Hotel? I'm seriously curious. What is the most beautiful thing you have witnessed?
Whoo Hoo, Final Four!
It's a good start, but we expect Michigan talent like that to reach #1.
In the apparent absence of JeepinBen I have decide to post up this weeks Talking Cars Tuesday.
This week's question:
What is your favorite type of racing? (i.e NASCAR/endurance/Moto GP/Kart/etc)
Favorite racer of all time?
For me it's endurance racing. specifically 24 hours of Le Mans/24 Hours of Daytona. Favorite racer would have to be Paul Newman.
