I did not make this headline up
It should have happened five years ago but I will still be watching.
To kick off the night's drinking thread, I thought I'd share my recent beer drinking story.
I got a pretty neat birthday gift back in December--my girlfriend went to 8 Degrees Plato Beer Co in Ferndale, MI and picked out 25 beers from Michigan to celebrate my 25th birthday.
Neither of us are beer aficionados by any stretch, so many of the beers were new to me. We split one of the beers between us about every other night for the last month and a half and recently finished them all. List of the 25 beers in order that we tried them, with my favorite ten bolded and ones I hadn't tried before italicized:
North Peak's American Wheat IPA
Bell's Christmas Ale
Mayan Mocha Stout
How Now Brown Cow
Phat Abbot Ale
Bell's Cherry Stout
Greenbush White winter ale
Atwater's Purple Gang Pilsner
North Peak's Chocolate Stout
Bell's Midwestern Pale Ale
Bell's Two Hearted
Crooked Tree IPA
Atwater's Dirty Blonde
North Peak's IPA
Bell's Third Coast
Huma Lupa Licious
Some thoughts: I really like beer. Also, I had no taste for IPAs until I tried all these beers. I still can't get behind Huma Lupa, but maybe with time.
So, MGoFriends, what's on tap?
Bored, Coors light settling in, just wanted to throw out a topic for anybody that wants to play. What are the top 5 most memorable sporting events, to you, that have transpired during your lifetime. Does not have to be Michigan related, nor do they have to be positive memories, just events/moments/occurences that are stuck in your mind for mind for eternity. The "where were you when moments" that stick with you through the years. Not necessarily Michigan related, but can be. I'll try it. In order.
1. Buster Douglas knocks out Mike Tyson. I literally thought Mike Tyson was invincible. I knew something was funny in the first few rounds but I thought it would find its level. I actually thought I was being punked when he went down.o
2. Jack at Augusta 1986. 46 years old. He shoots a fricking 30 on the back nine, with a bogey. The singular best performance I have ever seen from a golfer in my life.
3. The Horror- I don't really need to say anything else here.
4. Magic at the All Star Game 93- You want to talk about rising to the occassion. The last 5 minutes of this game had me near tears(it may have been those onions I was cutting).
5. Trey takes down Kansas - This may be my single best Michigan memory, football incuded. I can honestly say that I have never been more jacked after a game than when that game ended. I don't know if I slept that night.
Care to chime in.
Honorable Mention. Michigan v. Notre Dame, 2006. Kordell Stewart destroys my soul. Tiger at Pebble 2000.
Harbaugh-certified Go Getter Alejendro Zuniga wrote a fairly brief profile of Michigan's winningest coach that I'd recommend taking a look at. It is truly amazing that Harbaugh, Hutch, Beilein and Red are all active coaches at Michigan right now.
On entering Hutch's office:
Your eyes are drawn to the white sheet of paper pinned to the wall behind her right shoulder. It’s a to-do list written neatly in black marker, thick enough so you can clearly read items six and seven:
6. Call in one of my players.
7. Make them cry.
Hopefully Hackett can find a solution for seventeenth and the upcoming eighteenth conference championship teams:
Michigan moved into that new softball center just over a year ago, but there’s already a minor issue. One wall in a conference room is dedicated to celebration photos of all of the Wolverines’ Big Ten-champion teams.
When Michigan won its 17th such title last spring, someone noticed there wasn’t any more space left for their picture.
Hello MGoCommunity...This one is way off topic, but this blog's value extends way beyond talking about Michigan sports. Mods, feel free to delete if this post breaks any rules.

Requesting some advice from the MGoBlog community, and specifically MBA program students/graduates.
I'm planning to go back to school in the fall of 2015 for a full time MBA...long story short I am both desperately in want of a career change and also want to beef up my resume/business knowledge. A little further background, I am in my mid 20s, in-state with I'd say average work experience and undergrad GPA. My GMAT right now is a 650 and I am taking it again in one month to try and boost it into the 680-690 range, with the benefit of some quant tutoring. My dream school is Ross: one of my parents went there, it's a highly ranked school and I have always wanted a degree from Michigan. If I can't get into Ross, I really love Seattle and am looking at UW-Foster, otherwise I'm looking at mostly Big Ten schools where I'd qualify for scholarship money.
I came to this decision a bit late in the game as I am obviously hoping to still get in to a school in Round 3 so I can enroll in the fall. I'm hoping for answers to a couple questions:
1. What was your admissions process/experience like at Ross or other MBA programs?
2. What were some other schools you considered, or think I might want to look at?
3. What's some advice you have in choosing programs, getting admitted, making the most out of B-school, etc.
I've posted on a couple boards like beat the GMAT, etc about this but wanted to ask for your advice/opinions. Thanks in advance.
Mods feel free to take down if this is too OT.
