LIST OF WWE PERSONNEL?!?
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)
I've seen a thread on the ol 503 and a few comments about it as well, alluding to the fact that traffic has been up significantly. Is there anywhere out there we can go to find numbers for traffic on a particular site or would that info have to come from Brian? It would be interesting to see traffic here at Mgo over the last month and a half or so.
Before the year's out, and while we're all feeling warm and fuzzy and maize and blue, consider strongly a donation to University of Michigan's C. S. Mott Children's Hospital.
A leader in pediatric research and care, it is one of UM's treasures, with such fine people as Dr. Valerie Castle, Pediatrician-in-Chief and Director of the Neuroblastoma research program.
Dr. Castle, and many, many, others are part of the amazing talent we are fortunate to have at Mott pediatric hospital, and it's why so many UM greats have a longstanding history of support, including Charles Woodson.
And, of course, let's also not forget Lloyd Carr's four-year-old grandson, Chad, who, despite spending his fourth birthday receiving treatment on the Coach Carr unit, is smiling and hanging tough:
Each of the links above provide other links to directly donate to Mott. So before the year is out, those of you considering where to donate, don't forget C. S. Mott!
Thanks, and Go Blue!
[It Looks An Awful Lot Like] It's Happening!
I hope everyone that celebrates the holiday (in whatever way) had a joyous Christmas. As I sidled into work to get a few things done, I was amazed there was no Friday posbang thread.
So here we go. And to our friends in Canada and England, Happy Boxing Day (whatever that is - I just know that according to Elvis Costello every day is Boxing Day).
