alternate headline: man does job
Verlander going for 20.
76 pitches through 4 not vintage Verlander especially in the 1st. Hope Tigers can put some runs on the board here, so the bullpen can mop up for 3 innings
With the season approaching, there won't be any room for late-night open thread chatter, so I thought I'd open one last one.
What's on your mind? What are you looking forward to seeing most this year? What are you doing to keep your sanity for the one last week until kickoff?
As always, gifs, pics, and videos are welcome to help pass the night away.
I'll start us off:
I'm not going to do this every week, but it usually takes like 2 weeks for people to get used to schedules starting back up, so just a quick reminder he's on in about an hour.
Oh, and Inside Michigan Football starts Monday at 6:30 pm on FSD (and rerun a million times elsewhere after), so don't forget that either.
I knew the Marlins struggled to bring in fans, but wow, 347? That is abysmal.
[Didn't want this to get lost among the 315+ comments in today's epic post on Ann Arbor Dining and Drinking. If you have no interest in beer, nothing to see here.]
For those who read through today's guide, it included a number of different options for beer and people's opinions thereof. Will be up for the Notre Dame game this year so here I'd like to query the MGoCommunity for a bit more specific information about where to find the best beers available in Ann Arbor. Feel free to include specific varieties available on tap at different establishments.
Of note I'm hoping to find some fairly robust beers, think double IPA / Imperial style. One example, a local favorite of mine, is the Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA. If you know of places to find beers like that or similar from other breweries like Stone Brewing Co. and Lagunitas let me know.
I know Bell's makes something in this vein: Hopslam, but have never had the pleasure. Any bars serving that in A2? If not available in a bar, anyone know a beer/wine store that carries it? (Hopefully anywhere but Beer Depot, that drive thru place. Went there once as an undergrad and we had to leave unexpectedly as an employee threatened to get his gun.)
Thanks in advance for your help.
MGoBlog is trying to start creating photos, not just using them, and will have a guy on the road with Ace this fall getting pictures of recruits and etc. These will be Creative Commons licensed, so anyone can use them as long as they attribute them and don't use them for commercial purposes.
We've set up a flickr account to help us with this. I thought as long as I was doing this I would create an MGoBlog flickr pool.
The goal of the pool is to extend this pool of guilt-free photos to anyone who'd like to contribute. Photos for the pool should be:
- About Michigan sports or tangents (band, gameday things like tailgating)
- Creative Commons licensed. We are doing attrib-nocommercial but any flavor will do.
Unfortunately flickr does not have any mechanism via which I can enforce this latter requirement, so I'm looking for a few people to moderate the photopool to make sure. I'm not going to have a lot of time to monitor it during the season, so this might fall flat if no one cares to contribute. Email me at [email protected] if you'd like to moderate the pool.
If you're interested in contributing but don't know how to set this license on your pictures, go here for a rundown of what the various options are and to the licensing page to set your default license to some flavor of CC.
