"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."
MGoPoll: I am stuck on if I want to drink tonight or not. I can't correlate my drinking habits to the team winning or losing. I did not drink during SDSU, VCU, Florida or 'Cuse. I did drink (heavily) during Kansas. What I cannot do is start the game not drinking, then begin drinking in the second half. I am 99% positive that is the reason we lost to Indiana at home. (1st half - zero beers and a Michigan lead, 2nd half - 2 beers and Michigan lost).
Up-vote for engaging in ALL OF THE BEERS
Down-vote for a sober night
Speaking of superstitions. What are you doing to secure victory for the boys in blue (or maize) tonight? Sadly, for me, I haven't wore Michigan related clothing during game day all tourney long. So I will be rocking a plain white t-shirt tonight.
Feel free to posbang if you want. Today is kind of a big deal. Go Blue and Good Luck to our amazing Basketball Team!
What an exciting game!!! So, anyone enjoying a cold one? I'm drinking a Trogenator (it is lent after all). Let's enjoy! And beat Indiana!!!
I understand the concept of a posbang thread, but what exactly is a 'posbang'? Is it some mixed acronym type thing?
Second, I bought milk today that expires three days after the Alabama game. I believe this now counts as football season...
I got so excited that I drank the whole carton.
Its that time again! Time to find out what everyone is up to this fine Friday morning/afternoon. What are you up to? Any good plans for the weekend?
Me, I'm sitting at my desk as usual. Trying to stay awake. I've been up since 12:30am taking care of child-rearing obligations and I'm exhausted. Staring at a computer screen does not help keep the eyes open either.
Still trying to sell my car and get a new one. Selling a car as a private seller is a lot of damn work. Not to mention the fact that I've gotten 2 scam emails thus far. They are hilarious. The respondent is claiming to be at sea without access to cell phone but access to email. They say they'll pay asking price and ask for my PayPal account because that's the only way they can pay. Idiots. I responded to one saying "Nice try. Go scam someone else. Oh, and I just reported you to the authorities." F-ers.
P.S. I'm going to posbang my own thread again because its fun and it feels good.
P.P.S. Chick-fil-A for lunch today! Mmm mmm good.
Its that time again, time for the weekly "Whatcha Doing" open thread. Let us all know what you're up to this afternoon and this weekend. Anything exciting going on out there?
Me, I'm actually getting some real work done today, earning my below-market-value salary. That and trying to buy a new car because we've outgrown our old one.
I love negotiating with car dealerships but I feel bad for the salespeople because they clearly have absolutely no say in the sale/purchase. Everything goes up the ladder through the sales manager and the salesperson has to deal with all the upsetment when I hear their bullsh-t counteroffer price. Buying a new car is one of the most ridiculous processes. Just give me a price that you cannot go below and I'll take it. Stop trying to outsmart me because I negotiate for a f-ing living.
Anyone purchased a new Honda Pilot recently? If so, what did you pay for it?
So that's my afternoon. Pretty exciting, eh? To spicen things up, posbang me. <bending over>
So it looks like this might be a regular off-season thread since each of the last three Fridays I've wanted to jump out of my window here at work to put myself out of misery.
Whatcha working on today? Any good or interesting plans for the weekend?
Me, I've got the monumental task of figuring out what to get profitgowife for Mother's Day and trying to negotiate a confidentiality agreement with an a--hole lawyer on the other side. This weekend is filled with kids stuff, including a toddler birthday party at a playground tomorrow. Actually, a pretty nice little Saturday. We might make a trip to Home Depot. Maybe Bed Bath & Beyond. I don't know. I don't know if we'll have enough time.
