“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”
NEEDS MORE DENARD
All apologies for dropping this a day late. Just some stuff on the professional side of things that demanded immediate and front-burner attention.
I'm not going to presume to know what's gone wrong with UM's hockey season this year; I've attended no games and watched only a few periods of action. The bottom line is, I just wanted to draw Denard all suited up for action. I mean, can you blame me?
Friday Fun will involve me drawing something about Michigan athletics. I'll do it on Friday, and it might even be Fun.
THE BLOCKHAMS™ runs (typically) every Wednesday here at MGoBlog and on its official home page. Also, don't forget to check out the Friday Fun, my weekly single panel comic based on trending Michigan events, available on Twitter and the home page every Friday.
I get the sentiment, but untied skates = broken ankles. As someone who has taught learn to skate classes.... gahhhhhh
IHOA got for its officials made us do an entire ninety minutes of skating drills with our skates untied once. It might not have been terrible otherwise, but we had to do this at the east rink at All Seasons in Aurora. I don't know how much you ever played there, but that was some terrible ice.
Didn't have to go to Aurora often, and can't say I remember the rink but there was bad ice all around back in the day. I remember when the Darien rink didn't have glass but had chain link fence, and I rememember being able to see the concrete distinctly through the ice at the Lake Forest Academy rink before that got re done. I'm only 25 and don't have a lawn.
That was one of the worst rinks anywhere, along with some pretty terrible locker rooms. I never played at the old LFA rink, but I do remember Darien when it was that bad. I can't remember for the life of me which rink it was, but there was one where the cinderblocks didn't go all the way up in the locker rooms, and my high school team damn near got into a brawl with Downers Grove South as a result.
And yeah, I'm younger than you and don't have a lawn. Some of those rinks reall were that terrible.
That rink sucked too. At LFA the cinder blocks didn't go all the way up, we used to get 2 locker rooms for practice and throw tape balls back and forth over them.
I thought that was Thunderbay with the chainlink.....
to skate fast with your skates untied. I don't think dilithium can make up for that...
You are attempting to use the words "impossible" and "Denard" in the same sentence. Where have you been the last four years?!
You forgot the velcro :-)
I never used the word "Denard." Okay? But you make a valid point.
[walks to the corner in shame]
Jeez, you guys aren't paying attention. It's a baby who's imagining Denard playing hockey.
How realistic would it be for a baby to worry about things like tied skates or medical conditions?
I love that our reaction to a comic strip about a baby imagining Deanrd on the hockey team is to have a serious conversation about whether or not he could sake with untied laces.
