If people are familiar with Dockers, these are basically the Alphas with a smallish logo above the back pocket.
Listen to this! What happens when 22 talented UMich musical theatre grads sing their version of the University of Michigan fight song at their graduation party. Awesome!Posted by Scott Orr on Sunday, May 3, 2015
Gave me chills. Someone else smarter than me can probably figure out how to imbed a video from Facebook....
EDIT: Changed previous topic title because of negative criticism. Thought the Hail & Unite reference was funny, but apparently it touched too many mgoblog raw nerves.
Grace Lee Whitney, who played Yeoman Rand in the original Star Trek series and several of the movies, died at home this past weekend.
I bring this up because many of this site’s fans are Trekies, and Ms. Whitney was born and raised in Ann Arbor.
I also wanted to comment on something the article from NBC News mentioned about the arc of Yeoman Rand’s career. Speaking as a retired Naval Officer, she had a very plausible career path for a Limited Duty Officer (Administration). She began the series as a Yeoman, a Petty Officer, who handled correspondence for the Commanding Officer. In the first Star Trek movie, she was Chief Petty Officer Rand, and in her last appearance in the sixth movie, she was Lieutenant Rand. That’s very “realistic” in terms of today’s Navy. Also, the steps in her fiction career seemed to track the modern pattern of women joining and being fully integrated into the Armed Forces. Look at the evolution of CAPT Kirk’s interaction with female Star Fleet personnel through the years, and you have reasonably accurate mirror of what was happening for real.
I thought this was worth noting.
Happy Star Wars Day, May the 4th be with you!
Since the Jaylen brown boondoggle, we seem to have hit a bit of a dead period for new developments. Seems like as good a time as any to share some quizzes I made on sporcle.com.
The first two challenge you to place FBS and D-1 schools in their proper state. I exclude schools with the state or major cities in their name. The FBS one is pretty easy, the D-1 basketball one is not.
Football: In this quiz you click the answers. If you aren't sure, skip it. You only get one guess per school.
Basketball: In this one you just type the answers. No penalty for wrong answers.
In the OT category, I also have a quiz for fans of Weird Al, which seems likely to cross over with this board quite a bit. In this one you'll guess whether an audio clip is from an artist's original song, or Al's parody of that song. It's harder than it sounds.
Hope you guys enjoy them. Post your scores so we can find out which poster is most willing to use google to cheat on an online quiz. Also, if you have made quizzes yourself, share them here.
