This is Gus:
Gus is a nearly 2-year-old American Bulldog. He enjoys walks, playing at the park, and food. Lately, he also enjoys severe allergic reactions caused by unknown stimuli:
It has happened twice now, both within the last week. His face swells like a balloon, and he develops a serious hives on his legs and neck. A shot of antihistimines at the vet has solved the problem both times, but that's a rather expensive trip to take regularly.
I have no idea what is causing these reactions, but it doesn't seem to be food. The vet seems to think it might be spider bites, but we haven't seen any spiders around the house. Have any MGoDog owners experienced anything similar? Any advice? Preferably advice that does not involve anal glands?
I recently found this picture when going through some stuff my dad saved from when he went to michigan (class of 85), and I want to know what game it was from (it might not be from when he was at UM). I was hoping that maybe one of you remembers some of the players or even the game; Any help would be appreciated.
Sorry for the bad quality. Some hints that I have been able to find out so far:
We were playing MSU (back when they had numbers on their helmets)
You may not be able to see it because of the quality, but the number of MSU's returner looks like its 28. It definitely starts with a 2

For all the fans out there of Chicago Based Goose Island Beers...
Anheuser Busch is buying them. Hopefully they will let Goose Island keep brewing their own stuff and they wont mess with success. The 312 is my favorite wheat (more beer less citrus than say, a Blue Moon or Oberon) and Matilda is just delicious.
My last time in Chicago I saw that they have a "Green Line" brew, which is brewed using all local ingredients, sold only in Kegs only in Chicago, and for way cheap. I thought that was a cool thing, and hopefully some of those small business style things keep going.
Any other Goose Island fans out there? Any other similar beer suggestions for when/if AB screws this up?
EDIT: WSJ Article has a pretty... upbeat take on it http://online.wsj.com/article/BT-CO-20110328-709258.html talks about how GI was struggling to meet demand, and most of the staff (less the Brewmaster) is staying put
From the Dayton Daily News:
Apparently two Daytonians have created a micro-distillery vodka made from Ohio spring water and midwest grains. They've called it "Buckeye Vodka". $20 for a bottle. As if this damn state needed any more help getting drunk off cheap booze and embarassing themselves.
No word on if Ted Sarniak's company made the bottles. Or if Maurice Clarett is the celebrity spokesman.
Hello Mgoblog users!
I am currently doing research on the nature of online communities, specifically for mgoblog.com. If you could please take this survey (<10 minutes), it would greatly help my research! I will also be sharing the results with Brian to help better the blog in the future. You DO NOT have to be a poster to participate!
(Mods, if possible, please sticky this for a few days so it doesn't get lost in 24 hours)
It's clothes, people. Friggin... AHG! Nike makes clothes. Adidas makes clothes. I have never had an article of clothing from either of these companies fail to meet the requirements to which I held it, which were, "Cover my ugly body up." The jerseys are Maize and Blue in either case. The designs are acceptable in either case. The corporate logos are secondary in size and location to the rest of the design in either case. Wearing one or the other brand is not going to cause our teams to perform any better, nor make your fat ass any more attractive when you wear the year's latest sideline polo.
To sum up: Nobody cares what you think about clothing manufacturers, and I'm tired of having it interjected into the middle of half the threads I open.
