further adventures in Jed York being unsuited for his position
So there are several folks in the Blackhawks' circles that are claiming the front office is looking to trade Sharp as soon as possible, most likely to the Capitals, or even possibly to the Wings. Long story short, there is info circulating that he had sex with Duncan Keith's wife and a reporter at a local ABC affiliate, all while being married himself. http://sportsmockery.com/2015/02/did-patrick-sharp-have-sex-with-teammat...
Less than 24 hours after blasting Toledo back into the stone age & putting up a gaudy 16 hits against Arizona State, the softball team has been at it again.
Michigan started the day with a rematch against the Toledo Rockets, and went easy on them this time ... run-ruling them by a mere 9-0 margin. Home runs from Sweet and Swearingen (who has played quite well this weekend) led the way, as Betsa cruised to an easy win in the circle on the strength of 3.1 innings of 2-hit ball. Freshman Tera Blanco made an appearance, and sealed the deal, going 1.2 with no hits and one strike-out.
Game two featured a matchup with another overmatched opponent, this time the Binghamton Bearcats. Sierra Romero was the driving force at the plate, as she so often is, going 3-3 with two HRs and 6 RBIs on the day. Haylie Wagner got the start and the win in the circle, but Blanco once again got to see some game-action, stepping in for the final two innings as the Wolverines went on to win 15-0.
Thus far on the weekend, Michigan has outscored their opponents by a combined margin of 51-10 over the course of 20 offensive innings. The Wolverines have averaged over 2 runs scored per inning, and have plated at least one run in 70% of the innings played. This weekend's action will conclude tomorrow with another game against a strong Arizona State team.
[Ed-Seth: Those of you in parts of Ann Arbor should have by now seen our sponsor's ad at right. Or maybe you've walked by the Main Street location and immediately had to do battle with any brain cell registering mmm coffee. Or maybe after losing this battle you curled up inside with a double espresso and a good
book MGoBlog article.
For students and anyone in that Geddes-Washtenaw area, I wanted you to know they just opened another location on South U. West Siders and Packards, stop in the Main Street one.
Anyway you won't be the only reader in there. If you don't believe me, walk in sometime, put your fist in the air, and say "Harbaugh!" Also see if you can get the baristas to make an 'M' in the crema.]
Hi MGBLOG readers, David from Mighty Good Coffee here. As many of you know, Mighty Good has been roasting coffee in Ann Arbor for almost 10 years now and we have a great cafe right on Main St. in downtown Ann Arbor.
What you may not know, is that we just opened a new cafe right on the Michigan campus at 1335 South University. There we are serving coffee and espresso drinks made from our freshly roasted beans. We have a great selection of our signature latte drinks as well including the brown sugar sea salt latte! If you need freshly roasted beans to brew at home, we have those too.
So whether you’re on campus, or in downtown Ann Arbor, you can enjoy a great cup of coffee throughout the day and can even cozy up, hop on our wifi and get some work done while sipping the time away.
Another interesting video from Dr. Sap. They even mention the Bo hat.
A look back at how the University of Michigan viewed the Michigan Football Experience in 1991 and how it was interwoven with marketing efforts that promoted the school and the athletic department all in the name in keeping ticket prices down and affordable. Interesting to hear that there was no mention of marketing the "brand" and nothing to the effect of, "if it ain't broke, break it."
Includes footage of the play where he broke his jaw against ND. It's amazing how he came back from that injury in just three weeks.
i want to be entertained and need a good laugh on this hump day, so let's talk about bad stadium experiences.
I was at the opening day in 2009 at comerica where there was a massive brawl outside the park before it even opened. I think it's on youtube. Anyways, I had a coke in my hand and a dude fighting got pushed into me and the coke went everywhere, splashing on the drunk next to me who probably had anger issues and he tried to fight me.
After brushing off Alabama twice in Tuscaloosa and delivering dominant performances against over-matched Lipscomb and JMU squads this past week, the Michigan softball team is ranked 3rd in the nation in both polls (released today). The Wolverines predictabl leapfrogged the Crimson Tide, now ranked #4/#5 nationally. A season-opening loss to still-undefeated Florida is remains the only blemish on the Maize & Blue's record.
The tough schedule continues this weekend as Michigan travels to Tempe to face #21 Arizona State twice, along with two meetings with Toledo and one with Binghamton. Arizona State has struggled a bit this year, including a 4-1 loss to Minnesota. These match-ups will provide an interesting measuring stick between the two prime contenders for the Big Ten crown. The always-tough Sun Devils can't be taken lightly, however, having handed #6/#4 Oklahoma one of their few losses.
