I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
I've long heard tales of an eventual purchase of the 16.7 acre Edwards Brothers site by the University. Then I heard that the city would step in and prevent another big chunk of the tax base from bing taken off the tax rolls. The story, with a little more detail, has been in the papers (virtual or otherwise) the past few days.
What do you think aout the whole thing, pros & cons? AND...does anyone know more than what can be read in the news story? Who will get their hands on the property and how will it be used? The Victors for Michigan campaign seems to have a lot planned for the space. Will it happen?
So Christmas is approaching fast and OT season is upon us so I thought this may pass as acceptable. If not the mods can remove it, but given the state of things lately, removing ourselves from discussions about UM football probably isn't a bad thing.
So my wife and I have been married 12 years and together for 20. I used to be really good at buying gifts that she loved but the past two years I have been altogether stumped as to what to get. After 20 years I'm just fresh out of ideas. She seems to have everything she wants but I really want to get her something that shows I put a lot of thought into it....
Soooooo, here's what I have in mind for this thread. Anyone shopping for their wife/girlfriend can let the rest of us in on what you're thinking. Perhaps you'll find a good idea you neevr thought of, or maybe you'll put others onto a great gift idea for their significant other. You can also post some previous gifts that were a particular hit with your wife/girlfriend that maybe the rest of us have never thought of. Anything to help eachother out when trying to make the women who put up with us feel special at Christmas.
For my part, the biggest hit in a while was pretty much a throw away, last second thing that my wife loved. It was a kitchen Aid mix master and she absolutely loved it. I was jsut out of ideas and saw one on the shelf and thought "what the hell...I can give it to my mom if she doesn't like it".
Also, to the ladies out there you can play a vital role as well by telling us what you're looking for this year or what your favorite gifts were. In return we could help you if you were at a loss as to what your boyfiriend/husband might be looking for.
So Mgoblogger's, let's work together and make this Christmas a special one for our significant others.
Now that the regular season is over, I think OT posts are allowed.
Anyhow, anyone see any Cyber Monday deals that stood out to them?

The Jaguars just beat the Browns at Cleveland to make it 3 of the last 4. Henne had a solid day with 195 yards and 2 TDs (1 int). He also lead the Jags down the field with a 3:15 drive that ended in the game winning TD pass with 40 seconds left.
I'm happy for Chad Henne and hopefully he can keep the solid play going and earn the starting QB spot for next year.
Michigan women's soccer's season ended tonight in a 2-1 loss at the #1 team in the country, Virginia.
Michigan had an amazing year, only giving up more than one goal in a game once (tonight). The only thing that kept Michigan from winning the B1G Championship was a pesky scoreless tie against wisconsin.
Another NCAA Quarterfinals year will be added to the rim around U-M Soccer Stadium.
Fantastic season ladies!
