Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."
Did anyone see video from the Calgary Hitmen "Teddy Bear Toss" for charity? It is an annual holiday event at the Hitmen hockey game. Teddy bears are thrown onto the ice after the first goal scored by the Hitmen (not sure what happens if they get shut out . . .) and all of the bears collected are given to the needed for the holidays. Pretty darn cool. Check out the YouTube video below:
I wonder if something like this could be done at Michigan? Probably not during a football game (if only because of the logistics of it) but maybe during a hockey or basketball game? The level of participation in Calgary is stunning!
Texas and Penn State are in the 3rd. Penn State is up 2-0. Lots of spandex. Lots of VERY good volleyball.
HATE RUSS ROSE. He has been Penn State's coach for 31 years. No, Joe Paterno isn't the only ageless wonder of a coach.
Blair Brown, graduate already.
Thats the St. Joe county prosecuter's office press release up there^^
First, there was the allegation of Sexual Batter/, specifically the touching of her breasts. Secondly, there was a complaint about text messages received by Ms. Seeberg. She never made an allegation of rape nor does the evidence even suggest a rape occurred as some media outlets have mistakenly reported.
Oh there wasn't any allegations of rape at all. I can't believe ND would have stone walled everyone like this on such a serious matter.
Mods you can throw this in the locked thread if you want but felt this tidbit needed to be added
Before anyone tries to get all high and mighty after falling for my bait, I do not in any capacity condone this type of conduct towards anyone; that includes the reported allegations and the actual allegations that were made. The only purpose of this post is to poke fun at the chicago tribune for their great investigative journalism and anyone who came in here expecting anything other than what is posted above.

I just thought I should share some good news with the rest of the MGoCommunity, a lot of negativity has been going on lately, but today I was given the opportunity to attend the University of Michigan in the form of an acceptance e-mail. It has always been my dream to attend UM, and once it became painfully apparent I would not be the next Braylon Edwards, I went for the more academic route, and it's great that I can finally realize that dream. 'Tis the season for a lot of great news coming to high school seniors.
P.S. No, I cannot kick field goals either, sorry.
per ESPN: The Tigers and Magglio Orondez agreed to a 1 year contract for $10 million.
A bit steep for a declining, aging power hitter, but it's a one year rental. Not too bad considering that they missed out on Carl Crawford and Adam Dunn at FA market. It temporarily fills a need for another bat at the FA along with Victor Martinez.
