no, YOU'RE off topic
This may be barely OT since it involves U of M, but according to this column there are no more plastic trays in the dorm cafeterias (except at Bursley, strangely enough). No doubt there are rationales involving cost, the environment etc. for this change, but what exactly are Markley (and other Hill dorm) residents supposed to "tray" on in the Arb this time of year? Anyway, as a Markleyite from the 1980s, I thought that this was an entertaining eulogy to the passing of the dorm tray:
Crystal Pepsi for me. Then off to Charleston.
Attack this weekend with a vigor that exceeds all human comprehension!
MICHIGAN - University of Michigan / Michigan Sports (pro or college - except MSU) / State of Michigan (no politics): Open Thread
That's 5 Michigan threads, dammit. Have a good day everyone...
With the meta threads of favorite former posters late last night and the SFW avatars post below, it got me thinking about my favorite avatars of all time on this site. It's awesome how avatars on here become intertwined with our perceptions of other posters' personalities, and I thought it'd be fun to see who all of our favorites are (that and work is really busy, so I need something to distract me). For me personally, I'm a big fan of the following:
- Hank Hill: Not sure if he really posts very much on here, but whenever he does, I can't help but read his post in Hank's voice and add a "I tell ya what" to end of it.
- Magnus: I like to think I have some sort of personal relationship with Brandon Graham solely based off of his avatar.
- LSAClassof2000: I'm not a brony, but I can appreciate the balls it takes to have a "My Little Pony" avatar.
- Evenyoubrutus: Who doesn't love a kick-ass mullet?
So, who are your favorite MGoAvatars and what iconic ones here am I leaving out?
Finally, over the top programming with live ESPN for $20/month - http://www.multichannel.com/news/distribution/dish-unveils-sling-tv/386592
Yes, this has huge holes in it with respect to programming related to Michigan fans - no ESPN2/3, BTN, etc. But this is really going to shake up programming for 20/30 year olds with no cable.
It should be interesting how this effects subscriber counts and future payouts to conferences 5-7 years from now.
(I've been watching the telecom/broadband space since the late 90's, so I love talking about this stuff)
