this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
I found this here picture over on a site people like to refer to as "www.reddit.com". But, I liked it, and I assume all of you will like it, for an entirely different reason altogether. Game night boys- get your seatbelts ready. Wolverines.

Given the general relevance of Muppets to the board, I thought it perhaps worthwhile to suggest using caution when comparing professional athletes to said delightful Hensonistas:
MUNICH (AP) -- Star goalkeeper Jens Lehmann is suing another goalie for telling a TV audience he belonged in the "Muppet Show.''
Lehmann recently came out of retirement to return to Arsenal. While working as a television commentator in September, Lehmann criticized the performance of Tim Wiese of Werder Bremen in a Champions League game against Tottenham.
Wiese responded a day later in a newspaper, saying Lehmann should "go to the Muppet Show'' and be treated "on a couch.'
'Lehmann has filed a lawsuit and is demanding more than $28,000 for having his "personal rights violated.'' A Munich court will hear the case this week.
I would love to belong in the Muppet Show, personally. I've undergone so much Pavlovian conditioning that whenever I see them, I get the unique physiological response (e.g., heart palpitations, feeling of warmth, some salivation) that only accompanies Michigan victories.
I just heard a new Muppets movie is being made and so I (obviously) looked it up. It's scheduled to be released on November 23, 2011...Ohio State weekend. If that's not a good omen, I don't know what is...
The voice in my head is Miss Piggy's. I need me some Muppets! I expect Brian is on his way back from Hoosierland, but isn't there a blogger equivalent to power-of-attorney - can't someone else get the party started?
