“He was on the other side of the court, screaming: ‘Good shot, Kev!’” Durant said, shaking his head in delight. “I’m thinking, this guy’s an All-American type of teammate right there.”
UMICH PAINTBALL HEADING TO CHICAGO
I figured I would let everyone know that the University of Michigan Paintball team will be playing in NPPL Chicago open from May 20-22nd occuring at CPX Sports in Joliet Illinois. We will be in Chicago on Thursday midday and play begins Friday. Here is a link to the event website and here is a link to the Friday schedule of our games. Friday at lunch when your thinking why am I still at work? stop thinking, leave and come to CPX to watch us play! Also we finally got all our photos from the NPPL event we went to in California so I will hopefully be posting a writeup about that soonish...

Round 2 voting for NOTY has begun, and Leviticus is losing to some jabroni that wasn't born with the name they're competing with. We need to fix this, vote here!
Amazing story posted to Dave Brandon's blog: softball coach Carol Hutchins and assistants give recruit's father CPR and use an AED when he suffers a heart attack. The man was taken to UM hospital and survived.
Nice save, coach.http://www.mgoblue.com/sports/brandon/spec-rel/051411aaa.html
The Michigan softball team took a second game in a row against lil sister 8-0. It was also back to mercy rule wins. We did the same earlier against tosu. What a great time dominating our rivals by back to back mercy rule wins against both teams.
The win clinched the Big Ten Title outright. It was the 4th straight Big Ten Title. No other team has accomplished that feat.
The game was a no hitter for JT, she struck out 6 and walked 2. It was the 8th career no no for JT in her career.
Ashley Lane went 1 for 2 with 3RBI and a run scored off a tater to RF. Chiddy went 3 for 3 with 2 RBIs and a run scored.
Now we must wait to see what the TC thinks of the strong finish this year and reward us with a #2 National Seed.
Blue Dragon? How about one more for the final regular season game?????
Good evening everyone,
It seems that New York Rangers enforcer, and generally feared tough guy, Derek Boogaard was found dead in his apartment in Minneapolis on Friday. Boogaard had played five years in the league with the Minnesota Wild before signing with the NYR this past season.http://sports.nationalpost.com/2011/05/13/derek-boogaard-found-dead-in-m...
Boogaard was a native of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and will be remembered as an absolutely brutal enforcer after his beating of Todd Fedoruk.
RIP Derek Boogaard.
