this guy evidently hired to work for AD
We've had some good and not so good April Fools jokes today. In the spirit of the day, what are some of the best/worst rumors you've heard in the past year regarding any MIchigan sport?
My favorite- Bo Pelini to LSU to replace Miles so that Miles can come up to Ann Arbor. I was so desperate for truth I believed it. Shame on me.
Just wanna bring to your attention that U-M is hosting the annual regional Steel Bridge and Concrete Canoe competition this year. Our regional is the North Central region and our competitors are MSU, Michigan Tech, Wayne State, Toledo, Ohio Northern, U of D, WMU, and Lawrence Tech.
Saturday's festivities go from 9 am til 5 pm at Pierpont and Duderstadt buildings on north campus. The steel bridge competition (UMich steel bridge won last year's regional and went to nationals) starts around 10:30 am and the concrete canoes will be on display and have their presentations starting around 2.
Sunday is concrete canoe race day up at Independence Lake, in Webster (a good 10 minute drive up US-23 from campus). Canoe races start at 9 and are the men's endurance, men's sprint, women's endurance, women's sprints, and co-ed sprint.
If you live in the area and have nothing to do this weekend, come check out this cool competition.
Bell's Brewery to start serving in cans...
No idea if they'll put Oberon in a can, but it's so popular, I gotta believe they will. Seems to me the yeast at the bottom would be more difficult to get out of a can, maybe?
Of course, beer is best served in appropriate glassware. But between cans and bottles, I'll take the bottle every time. Unless only cans are available, in which case I will just shut up and drink.
I just got an e-mail that Lloyd Carr will be speaking at the School of Public Health on April 5th at 3:30 PM in the SPH II Auditorium. He joins Dr. Jeffrey Kutcher of the Michigan NeuroSport Program and Dr. David Sleet, Associate Director for Science, CDC National Injury Prevention and Control.
The talk is entitled "Play Smart: Injury Prevention on and off the Field" and is free and open to the public. They are requesting that if you plan on attending, you register here: http://www.sph.umich.edu/scr/playsmart/
Hope some of you can make it out for this! Go Blue!
I judge myself for thinking this is hilarious, and he's okay. Apparently a member of the spanish guard passed out in the heat in Madrid while the prince and princess of Spain were greeting Charles and Camilla. At least he fainted in proper position.
Not sure what his association with the school is, no information on his wiki page. Just found it hilarious in the face of all of the other criminal, alleged or otherwise, activities in Spartyville lately.
