Everyone's favorite Space Emperor From Space delivered a big performance on Sunday including a 65 yard punt in overtime that helped lead the Patriots to a big win. He is getting some recognition in the Boston Globe:
Ever the perfectionist, Mesko wasn’t celebrating his performance too enthusiastically.
“I’ll take it,’’ he said. “If I dissect it, there’s lots of things to improve on.’’
Slater has noticed Mesko’s attention to detail and has seen numerous booming punts from the rookie, whom the Patriots selected in the fifth round out of Michigan this year.
Rome: What was the fine for?
Wilson: (psh) Having too much awesome on my feet.
Wanted some Michigan sandals and found that Crocs has a collegiate collection, including U-M. They're actually not bad and are on sale - originally $30, but down to $15.
But you can get them cheaper! Sign up for their email list and you get a 20% off code. You can stack codes, so also use "secondchance" to get free standard shipping. Finally, I went through ebates and should get an additional 7.5% back. Total, it ended up being $11.99 shipped, not including my $0.90 ebate. Not bad, and they still have them in all sizes.
So short story long...
My wife got us a membership to our local Lifetime Fitness. Great because they have a lot of kids programs and amenities (like the childcare center). In an effort to actually make use of this membership, I've been getting up at 6am to exercise before work. The facilities are fantastic, but I needed some new sandals for the showers. My old Tevas just aren't cutting it anymore. I noticed that a lot of folks - being in the Chicago area - are wearing Cubs, Bears, or Illini themed sandals. Of course, I just needed to rep Michigan, which was the impetus for the Michigan sandal search.
Disclaimer: I do not work for Crocs, Lifetime Fitness, or Ebates. I'm just a guy who wanted to share what I think is a good deal with my fellow U-M fans and/or alumni. For the record, Crocs also has Bama, UGA, osu, LSU, Auburn, Florida.
Also, this is my first pair of Crocs ever. Eek.
This documentary is awesome. Each part is about 10 minutes long. Johnny Knoxville (of all people) exploring the positive side and future of Detroit. It's nice to see some positive mention of Detroit in the media. Hopefully, with good leadership, Detroit can return to being a respectable city.
There was a lovely ceremony at 2 this morning that I stumbled upon that talked all about this historical movement and it got me thinking of how proud I am to be able to go to a university that makes such a big impact around the world. So this post is for anyone who has participated in the peace corps or dedicated their lives to equally great causes and represent the university so well.
Go Blue, I am damn proud to be a wolverine
Volleyball playing MSU on BTN right now. Hopefully they're looking to get some revenge for Saturday!
