Michigan Softball pitcher Jordan Taylor threw a no-hitter today against Long Island University today (18FEB11). She missed a perfect game by one pitch, which led to 1 BB, spoiling the perfect game. JT finished the game facing 22 batters, striking out 13 and walking 1.
The offense was led by Sr. Dorian Shaw and So. Ashley Lane who both hit 2 home runs each. Fr Catcher Caitlan Blanchard got into the action by going 2 for 3 with a triple and an RBI. They crusied to a 6-0 win.
This win puts the Lady Wolverines at 6-0 for the season. Next up is the back end of the double header against Florida Atlantic. The Wolverines are playing in Bocca Raton at the Florida Atlantic University Classic Tournament this weekend.
This should be another great weekend. The ladies will see much better competition in this tourney as they will play a ranked UMass team. I will keep the updates coming as I have no life and preparing for Rackham Graduate School by telling myself I need to quit drinking and focus.
The National Center for Atmospheric Research recently released a study indicating that climate change could wipe out the wolverine from the lower 48 states within our lifetimes.
The Michigan Gulo Gulos!
Wings are playing at Tampa.
This is the first regular season game between the Wings and the StevieY-led Lightning. Both teams are first place in their respective divisions.
Wings are up 1-0 on a Dan Cleary goal, midway through the first, and have killed off three consecutive minors.
I know that Deadspin (Bring back Leitch!!) doesn't get a lot of love here, but Drew has a decent read on his mostly terrible experience at Michigan. Agree with his reasons or not, I think its an interesting read. Can't say that my experience was anything like his though.
In the spirit of negating the inherent negativity of the "Worst MGoBlog Trend" post, I'm interested in reading what people think are the best MGoBlog trends, tendencies, posters, and memes. These are a few of my favorite things:
1. Anything Lloyd Brady (mentions, photoshops, etc.)
2. Posbang and Negbang Threads
3. Spelling/Grammar Nazis (the criticism can only help the poster)
4. His Dudeness (only love is going to heal him)
5. Negging Brian and TomVH (keeps them grounded)
7. "Posted from iPhone" titles
