Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."
While covering tonight's Chelsea High School home football game against Monroe, I looked around and did a double-take when I saw somebody I didn't expect to be there: Braylon Edwards.
With the NFL preseason schedule done, he had an opportunity to come out to Chelsea to see his brother play.
He picked a pretty good week to visit, as Chelsea won and his brother scored a touchdown.
Alright, so, again, sorry this is OT. Hopefully it's not TOO OT, because it's in the AA area. I need some thoughts.
I and a couple of people with NF Inc., a group to support research into Neurofibromatosis Type 1 and 2, as well as other associated diseases, are trying to come up with some fund raiser ideas for the group to hold in the AA area. A really fun one I'd like to try, which I think we'll probably set up, is organized through Mongolian BBQ. They offer the opportunity to be a "guest griller" at a fund raiser night. I'll need to investigate more.
I am also thinking of contacting the U of M AD office and seeing if there is any chance they make any of the university held suites available for such things. If it's a cause they'd like to donate a suite to, and then we could auction off the tickets. However, not everybody is a big M fan, so that might not go over as well.
People of AA and the surrounding area, can you think of any other cool opportunities? Would the AA golf course be open to hosting an outing at a deep discount so the money could go to research? What else is there?
So I've been intending to purchase a gaggle of MGoShirts. Opened up the store tonight, went to find the "HAIL" t-shirt, and it's no longer there.
Is it just out of stock? Or were there some copyright shenanigans?
Tried searching to see if it was mentioned somewhere and I missed it, didn't see anything.
Off Topic posts will now be dealt with maliciously. The off season is dead to me.
Prepare to be deleted.
This is way OT but was wondering who else watched this HBO movie - Temple Grandin http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Temple_Grandin - when it came out? I thought it was excellent and props to HBO for taking it on and showcasing the struggles and successes of individuals with autism. Claire Dane just won best actress for her role as Temple.
Edit: Make that 5 - for best movie made for TV
I'm mad. I'm also worried. And then again I'm concerned. Oh, and I'm bored. I have many questions. But much more than that, I have opinions, oh yes, and I must debate and express them. But is there a place that exists to satisfy this existential longing, that can satisfy this deep seated ennui? Where I can slam others, and express that I'M NOT HAPPY ABOUT THIS! Yes, yes there is, the all controversy open thread. Your one stop thread for all the major issues of our internet time.
I will start, because I can hardly wait to ask these questions and finally state these opinions:
It is OBVIOUS that Denard must start. Magnus. Devin Gardner has to redshirt or the season is LOST. If it's not lost already, because did you guys know that a walk-on fullback is starting at Linebacker? What is happening with the team? What is the status of Jack Kennedy? WLA.
Why are the mods deleting my posts? McFarlin. BTW, this box I'm typing in does not satisfy my sense of style either. Where is the update? And Goddamn, can someone give me the status of the point system?
Our secondary, man, it will be BAD. As is moving the OSU game. I hope the band is audible by then because I want to hear them play RAWK. In maize uniforms of course. It's time for a change. A change in Tate Forcier's work habits. With that, we might win 8 games.
But will 8 wins save RR's job? I'll bet we wouldn't talking about this if he only would have SLOWLY transitioned to the spread. Because I like QB's who only drop back, preferably without MOXIE. Or dreads. Magnus.
Finally, please no more three star recruits. The Freep. And if someone doesn't stop posting duplicate thread topics, I'm gonna go BESERK.
