"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."
Pretty interesting (and long) article on Zingerman's, and their unique business model. I had no idea about most of this.
"And they started rolling out new businesses: A bakery that had been started to make bread for the deli became Zingerman’s Bakehouse. A training and consulting business, ZingTrain, would share Zingerman’s strategies and philosophies, especially its emphasis on customer service and staff training.
One of the few occassions I will proudly wear red! (others during Olympics and World Jr. tournament)
Happy Canada Day to all the Michigan fans up north, enjoy the holiday!

The Hello Post for Mr. Loszewki!, The USA soccer team's advancement, recent recruiting news seeming more normal for a Michigan fan, the Tiger's righting the ship, and my weekend cycling trip Up North with the girlfriend (with maybe a couple flycasts interspersed). I'm a beer guy, but I think a G&T will be appropriate tonight upon our arrival in Grayling.
MGoGolfers out there,
I am going to be coming back to Ann Arbor (for the first time in a decade and a half) over the 4th of July weekend. I am planning on playing the UMGC early on Saturday, July 5th and as of yet am a single. If anyone is in town then, can get away, and wants to play $100 1-Downs (J/K), let me know I'd love the company.
I am sure most you know that the UMGC was designed by the legendary Alister MacKenzie whose designed include: Crystal Downs, Royal Melbourn (West), Pasatiempo, and a little course called Augusta National. The UMGC has been called a "Hidden Jewel" by golf writers and to my mind is one of the greatest in-town courses in the world.
I spoke with the shop and they said Saturday is wide open, so if we get more than 4 we can have a few groups of MGoGolfers should we need to.
Are we allowed to put our personal emails on a post?
Anyway, drop me a line if you're interested.
