I'll start off by acknowledging that many/most do not even realize Michigan has a competitive sailing team. In fact, this past year's team had a great conference season and put together a good run at the collegiate national championships. But there's also a good bit of history with the team. A new chapter of that history was written earlier when team alum and Aerospace Engineering grad Bora Gulari was selected to the afterguard (on the water management) of the Italian America's Cup syndicate, Luna Rosa Challenge for the 35th America's Cup cycle.
Great job, Bora. that's a long way from Baseline Lake.
He's not the first Michigan grad and team alum to compete for the Cup and he certainly won't be the last, but he is the latest. In 2013 he also become a 2 time World Champion in the Moth Class.
RABBLE RABBLE SOCCER IS A DUMB SPORT RABBLE
I was like a kid on Christmas Eve last night. So excited for the next month.
Since he's (1) won Olympic gold and (2) posted on MGoBlog time to time, it's probably newsworthy that "our own" Charlie White is now engaged to his longtime girlfriend and competitor (!?!?!) Tanith Belbin.
I am a casual baseball fan, and do not watch many games until the fall time. I do however like to keep up with the box score and stats of many Tigers players and have noticed that Verlander has been subpar this year. Can anyone shed light on his performance this year? Is it a mechanical issue, arm fatigue, injury?
Hey folks, seems like there is a good amount of World Cup interest here on the blog, so I figured we could have some fun making picks.
I'm not really a soccer guy myself, but it's fun watching the national tournaments. I've always rooted for France, adopted Uruguay last time, and of course will cheer on the red, white, and blue. So Allez les Bleus, <insert whatever Uruguayans say>, and Go USA!
Who's your team?
