I wanted to seek out some concrete opinions from MGOpeeps who have been traveling to A2 consistently for weekends, specifically for football weekends. I have done it a couple times, once at a 1.5 hotel that won't be named, as well as staying at a nice Marriot in Plymouth.
What advice or suggestions for hotels, rentals or one time weekend packages might anyone suggest for people who would like to do it more frequently during the football season? Obviously, we all have the ability to use websites that specialize in hotels and motel purchases, however, these suggestions would be for the unknown or not thought of or wouldn't normally consider type advice. E.g., I have been looking at a couple houses in A2 and Witmore Lake that rent out much like a hotel, but it would be best for a small group or more.
As we look at the schedule this year, ND, MINN, NU and OSU are prime weekends to hangout in A2 and have a great time not only at the games, but enjoy A2 and re-live old memories.
What say you...
Michigan wins their 5th National Championship in Men's Gymnastics. Hail to the Victors.
Michigan went 1-2 in the Individual All-Around. Sam Mikulak wins his second Individual All-Around Title and Adrian de los Angeles finished 2nd.
Alina Tsarnaeva , sister of the Chechen bombers, lives in NJ and was interviewed through her door. She claims to have not spoken to her brothers for a long time and the Chechen bombers were not accepting of her husband because he was not muslim. What a terrible tragedy all around and I hope they catch Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev (her brother) alive... so he can give some answers for why he would do such a thing to innocent people.
Also thought it was pretty crazy that NY Post and other news organizations were mis-identifying random people as the bombers. Too many trigger-happy journalists trying to break the story first w/o much fact-checking.
Mod edit: Leaving this one up, but from now on new discussion should be kept in the "Boston Terrible Things Open Thread" (or here, obviously). JGB.
I realize we are all awaiting McGary and Robinson's decisions, but we can multi-task! Tigers are in the 2nd, Verlander struck out 2 in the bottom of the first.
Gave me chills.
