LIST OF WWE PERSONNEL?!?
Bracket Matrix has released their first NITology.
Michigan is slotted as a 6 seed and has them heading to 3 seed Old Dominion in the first round
Another NITology had Michigan as the last 2 seed in the NIT last week. Now they're the last 3 seed and would be facing 6 seed Creighton in the first round.
Going after a couple Hitachino Nest varieties (red rice ale and espresso stout) recently discovered at my local beer outlet.
Snow is brewing and it looks like chances are good for a 4-day weekend here in our nation's capital.
What are you drinking?
As today is a slow day in sports (and the 2nd consecutive slow day on the MGoBoard) I thought I'd go OT on y'all.
I have been looking forward all week to watching NBC tonight for the Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Special, which, of course, will be telivised live. The SNL Red Carpet Special at 7pm should be interesting as an appetizer, but the main course will be served for 3 hours starting at 8pm. I believe 40 cast members will be featured, including 5 of the original cast members from back in 1975, and also including most of the biggest stars of the show spanning all four decades.
I have myself spent time watching, all week long, the 'countdown' back to Episode #1 on VH1 Classic (Channel 337 on DirecTV). I wasn't aware of it until this week, but I found out that VH1 Classic started their countdown about 3 weeks ago. Yesterday was an all-day Steve Martin Lovefest, as they showed several episodes that he hosted, mainly from the 70's. Today, they're concentrating on Year One (1975-76) episodes culminating in the very first show, with George Carlin as guest host, from 5:30-7pm.
The other two of the final 3 episodes yet to be rebroadcast have Richard Pryor, and then Paul Simon/Art Garfunkel as guest hosts; I'm particularly looking forward to seeing featured Musical Guest Gil Scott-Heron (you may remember him for "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised") on the upcoming 2:30 pm episode.
I've had a great time watching all the Gerald-Ford bashing today, in particular the episode showing right now with Ford's Press Secretary Ron Nessan as the guest host. I love Ford the Michigan Man and President, but this stuff is hilarious. Plus other classic skits, such as "Bass-O-Matic", which was shown about a half-hour ago.
Enough of my blathering, though. Time to get back to watching.
With the approval of higher ups, I am going to do a little promotion here.
You may or may not have heard that there is a fledgling but quickly expanding thing called "Wolverine Sports Radio" ,brought to everyone by VSporto.
There is some excellent content already on the air and/or being developed, but I would love to know what you think about the show that I am part of - "Wolverine Wanderings". Currently, there is only about a month or so worth of shows up (started at the start of this year), and we're currently splitting the show into two 30-minute stints from a single one-hour show, but they are definitely available.
iOS folks, the channel is here - LINK
Android folks, you can find it here, I believe (or hear it broadcast on the web) - LINK
Those are the links I was provided, so let me know if there are issues. Again, just trying to get the word out. Let me know if there's anything you want discussed or anything you think could get better. It's evolving, it's going in the right direction, but I wanted to share with the MGoBoard.
In addition to the show I am part of, there are folks from sites such as The Big House Report and Maize N Brew as well as a few others (some of whom also post here occasionally), so it's definitely worth it.
...including any ideas you had to further this trend instead of making new board threads for them.
C'mon, I've moderated some doozies in my time so I know you've been holding back way worse. Fess up.
