Attention MGoBlog Fans
Dear fellow Michigan fans,
As we previously reported to you, Brian Cook, proprietor of MGoBlog, is on vacation. What we neglected to tell you, however, is that the WLA rudely interrupted his vacation by kidnapping him and detaining him in an undisclosed location. As Proof of Life, here is a painting (srsly?) of our abduction of Brian:
There are worse ways to die
Yes, Michigan fans, your precious Brian Cook is under our control now. We hold him hostage, and we have only one demand:
Brian puts a lot of work into this site, and he deserves to be rewarded. We demand that you throw some coin at him. If you do not meet this one completely reasonable request, then the WLA will be forced to take over editorial control of MGoBlog ... permanently. This would mean no more Brian, and lots more Dex.
Artist Rendering of MGoBlog Community in aftermath of WLA takeover
We know the prospect of a WLA-controlled MGoBlog.com scares you, and quite frankly it terrifies us as well, so change your soiled undergarments and do what is right.
CONTRIBUTE OR DIE!
well there goes my life savings...
end of message.
Sorry, not possible -- just like the laughable concept that a poster could be "banned" (even by Brian).
Just how long do you think it would take to go to any of the free e-mail sites, create a new e-mail, and re-register on MGoBLog?
Before trying any other methods to change your IP address, try turning off (or unplugging the power of) your Cable/DSL modem for five minutes. In many cases this will change your IP address. However, if that does not change your IP address, repeat the process for 8 hours (overnight works well) instead of 5 minutes. Hopefully this will result in an IP change.
You can also ban an IP range. Your re-set trick will change the last part, but not the whole IP.
But only temporarily, because you lock out a lot of innocent folks, potentially.
Wouldn't that ban a range of individual IPs and potentially many other MGoBloggers?
(BTW, I realize banning was meant as a joke.)
Failure at convincing you we have Brian tied up in our collective mother's basement or Failure at convincing you Brian deserves compensation for the hours of free entertainment he provides us?
Its just the post. I know that for all the things Brian has done for us he deserves our money. No doubt about that. I'm just saying that the post was a fail. The idea was good, but the stupid story behind it was a fail IMO.
No Offense. It's just that no one can replace Brian.
Aren't you like 13? Are you even old enough to be employed?
What does FAIL mean?
that's a strange reaction.
Perhaps booing Brian will be better motivation?
Audience calm down
carrying bloody Palestinian flag.
Not a failure at all. This was about a billion times better than their previous post (which is not saying much, I realize).
I just ponied up. The though of having to help write a UFR each week is terrifying. Better to contribute enough to keep Brian in ramen noodles for the foreseeable future than to have the WLA being forced to write it.
...release Brian immediately! Or at least provide a proper loin cloth.
Per your request, a loincloth has been given to Mr. Cook. Thank you for your generosity.
the mushroom cloud is an apt depiction of the state of the MGoCommunity at this point in time.
metathread, so maybe we just metastasized.
I gave my life savings!!
UPDATE: Release Brian immediately -- isn't $5.60 enough for you heinous criminals??
INSERT JOKE ABOUT BRIAN'S HAIR
I goggled WLA.
What is the Wisconsin Library Association doing writing a sports blog?
A damn good job, that's what.
What the hell is "goggled"?
with wide eyes, amazed by its Unicorns and plentiful supplies of Zima.
"goggled" is an incorrect spelling. Mea Culpa.
end of message.
That'll fix it.
Goggled - "I drank too many beers and my eyes goggled that chick straight to a 10!"
I'm pretty sure that if you "goggled", you're doing in wrong.
The inside of those goggles provide alternating images of unicorns and Matt Damon. They're available at fine retailers near you. (Note to self: need to contact Wei Li Ning in Shenzhen to start production run on WLA goggles).
I dont know if this was meant to be funny, but it wasnt. Stick with the communism bits, at least those make your 20 or so diehard fans laugh...
to spur donations for the blog. the one your life would have no meaning without. donate. do it.
Dude, they're trying to do something cool for this blog and Brian. You just use his bandwidth and site to express your opinions, so why not donate?
This was meant to be a donation drive for Brian. Period.
He does good work, and he deserves to be paid. Hate us or whatever for our "schtick," but surely we can all agree that Brian deserves some donations for maintaining the best M sports site on the web, yes?
Ooooo. I thought he was trying to get donations for HIS blog. And still, it wasn't very funny.
he wanted donations for his blog? even when he wrote "Brian puts a lot of work into this site, and he deserves to be rewarded." ??? Do people even read, or just say things?
