The losses used to sting more. Having to deal with all the Sparty brahs is...trying these days. But what gets me through is the chance to be in this community, vent, and let it go.
I do my best to be a good citizen, as many others here, and I deeply appreciate the other perspectives here. Thank you all for that.
More importantly, though, on a night like tonight, full of angst and snowflakes, I can't tell you how happy I was to see the site up (no small feat I imagine given the number of 502 Bad Gateways I first saw). Thank you Brian. Thank you Mods. For letting our community post Schadenfreude for the world to see. And for helping us be reasonable to one another in our anonymity.
Godspeed all and Go Blue. Till I die, whether we suck at sportsball things or not.
It seems the Minnesota AD was forcing hockey fans to buy football tickets this year. Of course, I laughed when I got to the part where they paid $175 for season tickets to both hockey and football. I'm guessing Michigan students would love that price point.
I really need something positive this week. Go forth and bang!
I apologize in the event that this was posted yesterday, but here's the story:
Right next to the Lucky Monkey Tattoo Parlor.
Brian has already said he would run for Regent in 2016.
With his approval, could we start a 2014 Write in campaign in 2014?
I think it may accomplish two things: a large write in vote total may get the attention of Brian's preferred party, also it might scare the current regents into acting on Brandon if they had not done so already.
However, we must be careful. Since as soon as he spends or receives money, he is required to fill out lots of paperwork.
Edit; The chances of winning an write in election is 0%. The winning vote totals in the last non-presidential election cycle for the regents was 1.3 million. The idea is to get about 20K write in votes so the current board might take notice.
First the football season in general, then Saturday's embarrassing events (I hope you're well Shane), Trey's twitter situation, Phelps in trouble, Brady looking like, well, like he should start at Michigan right now... I'm scared to do, attend, watch, read, anything about anything Michigan sports.
Thank goodness it was and still is the best damn degree in the world.
