So it's Friday afternoon and no one wants to work. A fresh 12 inches here in the Mitten (at least for those on the west side of the state) should give us plenty of opportunity to do some skiing, sledding, etc this weekend. Took me over an hour to shovel the driveway this morning.
So what are you up to (besides wasting the workday on MGoBlog)? As for me, I'm plotting the purchase of a last-minute gift for my father's birthday. Deciding between the utilitarian (but more affordable) option and the pricey but enjoyable option. What say you, MGoBlog?
Now on Animal Planet. Looks like a good matchup this year.
Slow Saturday afternoon, and I could use some advice.
I'm thinking about buying my first car this week, and I obviously need some sort of U-M decoration on it. I'd like something classy and understated, so "kid peeing on buckeye" decal is out. Any suggestions? I'm leaning toward a chrome emblem, something like this:
Or a front plate like this if it will fit on the car:
While we're on the topic, what decals, etc. do you have on your car?
Alright finally got time to make the new video I had been talking about.. Hope you all enjoy GO BLUE!!!
Tried to embed but didnt work I guess..
The wife, who has become interested in the going-ons here has made a suggestion. It may be fun, or just an exercise in lunacy. She didn't understand the 6 degress of Kevin Bacon exercise, but once she did, suggested a MGoBlog version. To that end: Kevin Bacon + Michigan, in 6, if you are so inclined.
EDIT: Whatever you may be drinking rationale is encouraged.
NCAA might be facing doomsday soon enough as a judge ruled that NCAA athletes can pursue a cut of the billion-dollar television contracts, not only when games are re-broadcast, but also current rights deals.
From the ESPN article...
"Now the (NCAA and its co-defendants) are facing potential liability in the billions of dollars instead of tens or hundreds of millions," said Michael Hausfeld, interim lead counsel for the plaintiffs. "It's a more accurate context for what the players deserve."
If the NCAA and the conferences have to share the pie that is television revenue (a.k.a., the only source of revenue), this could be a death blow to the way college athletics operate now.
