What's everyone drinking tonight in anticipation for Northwestern tomorrow night? Or in celebration of yet another source of Buckeye schadenfreude? Either way, tonight it's cheap tequila with Simply Lemonade, and I plan on getting pretty drunk tonight before leaving to see megangoblue's friends and family in Cincinnati tomorrow. Cheers, MGoBoard.
Also, feel free to post about Boise-Fresno. I know Fresno is usually pretty good, but Boise looks pretty unstoppable for the rest of their schedule.
Has anyone else noticed a hiccup in the mgoblog rss feed lately? Neither of this week's UFRs nor the UV have shown up in my reader -- the last item that I received was the Toussaint Jab Step one.
[Ed: MGoWife got this in the inbox and forwarded it along to me for obvious reasons. A good cause and a good way to get your recipes in the lore of Michigan tailgating.]
Hi, everyone --
Just received this email from Alpha House, which helps the homeless in Washtenaw County, and thought some of you might like to submit recipes to them.
" ... we would love to include you in a tailgate project to raise money to support Alpha House, a local shelter for homeless children and families in Washtenaw County (www.alphahouse-ihn.org). Over the next three weeks we will be collecting your favorite tailgate recipes, memories, and photos to be published in a cookbook celebrating the long tradition of Michigan tailgating.
Please consider sharing your favorite recipes, the history of your tailgate and/or any tailgate photos. Any and all recipes from appetizers to bbq to dessert are welcome and desired. We will compile the recipes, stories, and photos into a beautiful (and delicious) tribute to UM tailgating. If you would like to share with us please email recipes (you can use the attached
form or another format that works for you), pictures and/or tailgate remembrances to Helen Starman ([email protected]) or Kelly Pearson ([email protected]). If you have any questions at all please feel free to email or call Helen or Kelly (734.822.0220).
A shelter in East Lansing very similar to Alpha House has had a lot of success with a similar project the last two football seasons. We of course expect to show them who reigns supreme in all football matters in the state of Michigan.

It was just announced that Jered Weaver will not pitch any more this season. That means that Justin Verlander will end the season with the best ERA (2.40), most wins (24), and most strikeouts (~7,000). Congrats to JV.
It also appears Miggy is going to win a batting title. He's got another double tonight.
3-0 Tigers, Middle 2nd.
Currently matched up with the Yankees, starting on the road.
I'm thinking this is the best match up for the Tigers to get to the series, but I'm not sure.
Other possibilities include hosting Tampa Bay / Boston to start.
Hosting Tampa is probably the best bet, but then you are looking at New York or Texas in a long series.
I think the Tigers' easiest past to the Series is to go to New York on the short series. Have Verlander and Fister (who's the hottest pitcher in baseball) go up against the Yankees in NY to help neutralize their offensive advantage. Then Sherzer or Porcello in the pitcher friendly Comerica. You gotta think that Verlander and Fister have a good chance of taking the first two and splitting at home would let us win the series quickly.
Then we have the possibility of hosting Sox/Rays or going to Texas.
I guess the question is, what lineup do you not want to face in a 7 game series: NYY or Texas.
