to play football, not to play trumpet
The OT season is kind of here, and will be in earnest when the MBB team is done with the NCAA's. We have some pretty creative, interesting and humorous folks on the board and it occured to me that it might be a good idea during the OT season to have a regular 'MGoBlogger Monday Profile' segment. I figure we could do a few of you at one time and that I'd start by picking folks using some combination of seniority and points and work my way through as many as reasonably could be done during the off months. I know there were a few profiles done years ago but none for quite a while. and many new characters are here.
So my questions are these:
1. Good idea or 'meh/pass/stupid'?
2. If good idea, then what general questions/areas would you want to get into? No creepy/stalker/perv stuff (I'm looking at a few of you right now...), but what areas to ask about? Maybe family, job, how became a Michigan fan, hobbies (besides M football, etc), favorite Michigan memory, maybe some wild card questions like 'if you could live any place', or 'have any job' or something along those lines.
Have a great weekend. Super bowl on Sunday.
This guy was awesome. My friends and I had a lot of good memeories growing up watching Mirra. From playing his video games on PS2 to watching him on TV when the X Games were cooler to watch. He'll be missed.
First time I saw Pearl Jam was at the Crisler Arena so there's my "Michigan connection" to posting this.
Probably really showing my age here, but I'm sure I'm not the only Pearl Jam fan around this board. This band is by far my favorite all-time band to listen to, and see in concert. I just can't believe ...... 25 years?? That's crazy in itself. But anyway, they are playing at Wrigley field in August that I have made it very clear to my wife that this would be an excellent date night!
I'm looking forward to this one, especially hearing more about the Ditka/Ryan feud. One of the greatest teams of all time and some of the wildest personalities in NFL history.
I want to thank our fearless leader for his effort in this site; as we sit here in the after-Harbaugh /pre-Gary glow I think its important to realize that none of this would have likely come to pass if it wasn't for him and his efforts. I don't think this is hyperbole; his email outing was the final nail in the Brandon coffin.
That said, I feel like the site infrastructure lets us down on days like today. We basically punted the server load to twitter to avoid the Gary rush. In this day and age, it feels like elastic computing has evolved to the point where we shouldn't have to do this. A comination of pre-packaged dupal (Cloud Formation/Cloud Laucher on AWS/GCP) and elastic load balancing/autoscaling should enable our leader to a)lower is bill and b)support #chaos. Sooooo: are there any mgocloud arcitechts out there who would love to chip in a reccomend a solution to keep the site performant at all times?
After Ronaldo scored the fourth goal at 44:44, the camera focused on a cheering man in the front row wearing a coat with a block-M. Tip of the hat to that man. Way to represent. Visca Barça, of course. But first and foremost Go Blue!
