PSG 4 - 0 over Barca... whoa!
Barca defense and midfield appear very mediocre, surprisingly slow to the ball, and simply unable to handle PSG's high press. Good chance the Catalans are going down in the Round of 16!
My Dad (Michigan alum, lifelong fan, longtime season ticket holder, etc.) is currently undergoing double-bypass heart surgery. I have faith everything is going smoothly, but even still he'll have a long recovery ahead and could use all the prayers and well-wishes he can get.
If you woudn't mind retweeting this, it'd be especially cool if we could get this on Coach Harbaugh's radar. A shout-out from Coach would be a welcome distraction and an unexpected emotional lift.

I thought this nice story would be worth posting:
Michigan State University has suspended longtime women's gymnastics coach Kathie Klages in the midst of a sexual assault investigation related to former team doctor Larry Nassar, according to an email the State Journal obtained.
So much awfulness going over there it's hard to keep track.
Team 40 finshed the weekend with a win over St John's 12-2, in mercy-rule fashion. However, the start of the season was less than ideal, going 3-2 for the Tourney. The pitching this weekend certainly needs to improve. The pitching staff allowed 22 base on balls in 5 games. This is unacceptable considering we played the likes of Delaware and St Johns.
Today, the pitching duties were split between Tera Blanco and Leah Crockett. Tera picked up the win by pitching 3 innings, giving up no runs and 2 hits. She struck out 1 and walked 3. Leah pitched the remaining 2 innings, giving up 2 runs, both earned, on 6 hits. She also had 1 strike out and 3 BB.
The offense was lead by Kelly Christner who went 3 for 4 with 2 RBIs and 2 runs scored. So. Natalie Peters, So. Faith Canfield, Jr. Aidan Falk, and So. Alex Sobczak, finished with 2 hits each.
Next weekend the team travels to Raleigh N.C. for the ACC/Big Ten Challenge and willl play NC State and Notre Dame twice. This will be a fun tourney for the ladies.
I don't normally post, but a buddy sent me this gem. I thought it was quite amusing:
"Recruiter called yesterday told me she had .net developer position doing work in "The C Pound". Now, normally, I just hang up on recruiters, but when she said "The C Pound", I needed to know more. So, I politely corrected her and said "it is just called C sharp, but it is written as the letter C with a pound sign." She continued on with her little phone talking points but through the whole thing she kept calling it "The C Sharp." I declined her request to know more but I did ask where she attended school, and yes it was "The Ohio State University." This made my day."
And someone responded with this gem:
"Someone asked me the other day if I was looking to relocate to the Columbus OH area. I had to decline her and let her know that nobody is ever actually trying to relocate there..."
Happy OT Season!
Edit: C# is a computer programming language - the recruiter kept calling it "C pound" instead of C-sharp and she kept adding "The" in front of it.
