this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Has anyone else noticed a hiccup in the mgoblog rss feed lately? Neither of this week's UFRs nor the UV have shown up in my reader -- the last item that I received was the Toussaint Jab Step one.
[Ed: MGoWife got this in the inbox and forwarded it along to me for obvious reasons. A good cause and a good way to get your recipes in the lore of Michigan tailgating.]
Hi, everyone --
Just received this email from Alpha House, which helps the homeless in Washtenaw County, and thought some of you might like to submit recipes to them.
" ... we would love to include you in a tailgate project to raise money to support Alpha House, a local shelter for homeless children and families in Washtenaw County (www.alphahouse-ihn.org). Over the next three weeks we will be collecting your favorite tailgate recipes, memories, and photos to be published in a cookbook celebrating the long tradition of Michigan tailgating.
Please consider sharing your favorite recipes, the history of your tailgate and/or any tailgate photos. Any and all recipes from appetizers to bbq to dessert are welcome and desired. We will compile the recipes, stories, and photos into a beautiful (and delicious) tribute to UM tailgating. If you would like to share with us please email recipes (you can use the attached
form or another format that works for you), pictures and/or tailgate remembrances to Helen Starman (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Kelly Pearson (email@example.com). If you have any questions at all please feel free to email or call Helen or Kelly (734.822.0220).
A shelter in East Lansing very similar to Alpha House has had a lot of success with a similar project the last two football seasons. We of course expect to show them who reigns supreme in all football matters in the state of Michigan.

It was just announced that Jered Weaver will not pitch any more this season. That means that Justin Verlander will end the season with the best ERA (2.40), most wins (24), and most strikeouts (~7,000). Congrats to JV.
It also appears Miggy is going to win a batting title. He's got another double tonight.
3-0 Tigers, Middle 2nd.
Currently matched up with the Yankees, starting on the road.
I'm thinking this is the best match up for the Tigers to get to the series, but I'm not sure.
Other possibilities include hosting Tampa Bay / Boston to start.
Hosting Tampa is probably the best bet, but then you are looking at New York or Texas in a long series.
I think the Tigers' easiest past to the Series is to go to New York on the short series. Have Verlander and Fister (who's the hottest pitcher in baseball) go up against the Yankees in NY to help neutralize their offensive advantage. Then Sherzer or Porcello in the pitcher friendly Comerica. You gotta think that Verlander and Fister have a good chance of taking the first two and splitting at home would let us win the series quickly.
Then we have the possibility of hosting Sox/Rays or going to Texas.
I guess the question is, what lineup do you not want to face in a 7 game series: NYY or Texas.
The past few weeks I've been thinking about the best comments I've seen on MGoBlog. I'm sure everyone remembers a few good ones, so for a trip down memory lane that doesn't involve the three in the User Created HOF (link, link, link, all extremely awesome), why don't we link to some of our favorites and get a laugh on a random Tuesday, post-UV and pre-UFR?
My top five, in no particular order:
User MGoShoe, after being attacked in a previos thread about posting a "flamebait" article. OP was about a mugshot for another person named Demetrius Hart:
User tripp welborne identity has two:
First, his response to Brian Kelly using helmet cams in practice for ND's QBs.
And his method for getting StephenRKass an authentic Kovacs jersey:
Obviously, maize and brew for me's sextuple post makes the cut:
And finally, from the Lloyd Brady photoshop thread, Lloyd Brady in Tiananmen Square, from cjm:
What am I missing?
Edit: Girlfriend reminded me of the time I got her to post on an account I made for her. She threatened BlueDragon with an MGoAssBeating, so that might be popular with some of you.
A MMB trumpet player was killed in a car accident tonight. It's always very sobering to hear about a tragedy like this.Thoughts and condolences go out to anyone affected. Rest in peace, my friend.
