I just wanted to thanks any MGo readers or bloggers who have served in the military, or have had family who has seved to make this country as great as it is. Thanks for doing something me myself didn't have the guts to do. I really respect all of the branches of the military and thanks for our freedom. Today is your day enjoy.
Tigers are playing poorly BFD. The Tigers are 6 out on May 25 BFD.
A little perspective for anyone not versed in baseball lore, we have to go all the way back to 2011 to find struggling teams with well respected managers who turned disappointing seasons into legendary comebacks.
2011 Tampa Bay Devil Ray were 9 games behind the vaunted Boston Red Sox on Sept 4 but came all the way back to secure the Wild Card spot behind the guidance of Manager Joe Maddon.
2011 St. Louis Cardinals managed by the incomparable Tony La Russa were 10.5 back in both the Division and Wild Card race in late August, but came all the way back to eventually win the World Series.
Not saying the Tigers are going to win the Division this season, just that it is too early to bail on either this team or Jim Leyland
Evidently I'm bored this morning before Profit so he should consider his thunder stolen like Seattle
What's everyone doing on this day before a long weekend? It's gorgeous here in Chicago, 70-80 and sunny. Staying at the desk is going to be rough today, as is the 9 miles I've got to do between tonight and tomorrow to train for a half marathon. Anyone have fun vacation plans? Or have today off so the rest of us can live vicariously though you?
EDIT: and thank you to nmumike for the reminder about how this isn't just a long weekend, Memorial Day is important in and of its self. Take some time to remember/thank those who are serving and have served.
[EDIT: Negged to Bolivian for stealing my thunder. Points will return in 10 minutes.]
So I wanted to let everybody know that the gym I am working at is moving to a new location, 3751 Varsity Drive, Ann Arbor, MI 48108. To celebrate the move along with the fact we are going to start offering Bootcamp classes, my boss decided to hold a Grand Opening celebration Saturday, June 2nd. We will be offering 3 bootcamp classes, starting at 8:00, 9:00, and 10:00 AM. The classes will be a $5 minimum donation with 100% of all proceeds going to the Alzheimer's Association Great Lakes Chapter, located in Chelsea. There will also be a raffle of a 2x per week, 1 month semi-private membership and a 2x per week, 1 month Bootcamp membership after the classes are over along with the unveiling of our new nutrition manual and a presentation of the new supplements we are going to start offering. Classes are capped at 20 participants each, so if anybody wants to participate you'll need to call and register for a specific start time. Below are the links to the Facebook page and the website so anybody who is interested can get more information on the Grand Opening and the gym itself (the website may be under construction for a bit but it still should have info on there). Also, my boss plans of doing a charity Saturday of Bootcamp classes every couple months for a new cause. I think we are already planning one for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the Huron Valley Humane Society, but if anybody has any ideas for any future ones let me know and I'll pass it on to my boss. Hope to see you guys out there!
I almost wanted to make it Bond vs. Michigan vs. Bama, because I hate to break the streak of M/Ala posts (how wild is it that these two schools are so linked right now?), but it's been a slow.....month? (We need a Hello post, stat). And most of the big summer movies have their trailers come out in the fall, during football season. So no Avengers, Dark Knight, etc. hype/discussion. So, OT, but it's that time of year. Unless we can get another recruit. (Which is still all so ridiculously early for next FEBRUARY). Enjoy; just the teaser-
Space X launched their Falcon 9/ Dragon Capsule to the ISS today. Regardless if you feel if low earth orbit should have been privatized or not, it's still pretty cool.
