football road trips
We'd like to do some more live events this year in various cities (or at road games) that are worth visiting and have a large contingent of MGoFollowers, and I've been in contact with several former players who want to be part of such things, be it at a bar for a Q&A during an off weekend, or an away game tailgate.
The keys are sponsorship and venue. "You guys should come to my city" doesn't help, but if you think you could help organize a dig worthy of your fellow readers' shins in your city and can put us in touch with a sponsor to make it worthwhile, let me know. New York and Washington, D.C. are probably already taken care of; those Alumi Associations already have Brian out there each year.
The one we definintely want to make happen is Notre Dame, if, say, you are in with some South Bend people who'd want to make an impression on a Michigan crowd.
Email me if you think you can help, even if it's just to put us in touch with your local alumni association leader or whatnot.
From the Ed-S-itor: Some of you may have noticed the new ad on the top of the site:
(Don't be fooled by this size; in real life, it's really big!)
Meet the latest sponsor of MGoBlog, Sports Power Weekends. What they do is put together group travel for Michigan's away games (Dallas, Notre Dame, Nebraska, etc.) So instead of doing the driving and the booking and the ticket scrounging you just give these guys about what you'd pay for all of that anyway and they do it for you. They have a limited number of spots based on how many tickets and bus seats there are.
I have images in my mind of busloads of MGoBloggers singing "The Victors" all the way to Sound Bend. I have to take the family caravan to that one, but I'm gonna try to meet up with the bus at some point.
Their message is below. And yes, it's not too late to be
in there for Alabama in one month (ONE MONTH! EEEEEE!!!!!) -S
