i refuse to even consider this a possibility
In the wake of today's heartbreaker against FSU, I'd like if I may to extend a few "thank you"s here at the end of the 2016 softball season.
First, a massive thank you to all of the players, and especially the seniors. They've given us so much to cheer, shout, and laugh about over the last few years, and did so during a time when not a lot else in the Athletic Department was doing so. We just watched the final performance of Sierra Romero, the best there ever was, but there's a whole team around her as well that has been absolutely outstanding. The magnitude of the disappointment today is 100% a factor of how much they've made us expect of them.
Second, a huge thank you from me personally to MGoBlog. Brian, for giving me the space to publish my pieces about the team here, and Seth & Bryan Fuller for helping me out a lot with my post-season articles. As I've mentioned before, when I was a kid it was always my dream to works in sports media (I wanted to be an announcer, and drove my parents nuts by commentating on my EA Sports video games). My career has gone a different way, but it's been a privilege to get to play around a little with that dream from years ago.
Finally, thank you to all of you nuts who have packed the game threads from day 1 all the way up through the last out in OKC. It's great to have a community here that share my off-beat passion for college softball. We'll all be coming together again pretty soon come February.
Go Blue, and Hail to the Victors.
I haven't been to a movie in years and can't tell you the last one I did see in a theatre. However, oldest son asked me to take him to see 'Captain America - Civil War' as a birthday gift since his birthday was last week and we just got back. He enjoyed it so I'm glad, but I must admit that I'm too old to really enjoy those types of films much, but also that they did have a few good one-liners mixed in toward the end of the flick.
I am adding a link here to the highest box office grossing films, which was a discussion we had on the way home. I was surprised to see how many titles that I had neither seen nor heard of : http://www.the-numbers.com/movie/records/All-Time-Worldwide-Box-Office
So, with a nod to the Monday thread about favorite war movies, what are the Mgobloggers all-time favorite movies?
EDIT: Should've done it by decade. Just looking at the 80's you have a boatload of classics: Lethal Weapon, Beverly Hills Cop, Top Gun, Caddyshack, Field of Dreams, and on...
Have a great weekend, Looks like Lake Michigan is warm enough to swim in, so might try that tomorrow with the sons.
Obviously not a good situation for one of the most iconic athletes of the last century. Not sure what else there is to say other than hopefully he pulls through and fully recovers.
Oklahoma finally gets on the board, topping Oklahoma 3-0 on a walk-off blast in extra innings. Michigan up next against LSU.
