Football Display Case
And you think you're crowded at Michigan Stadium
IMPORTANT: Ondre Pipkins not involved.
this is amazing
that you're outside in the cold rain while I'm laying in my warm, comfortable bed
Yep, that's Simba made out of a pineapple.
I'm seriously considering throwing some junk from my basement in the driveway so that I can contribute to this thread. I'll keep you guys up to date with what happens with my half set of golf clubs and my moldy collection of Stephen King paperbacks. It could be epic.
The rain has subsided for the most part, although a chill wind reminds us that it once was here. The sky grows ever brighter as sun rise approaches. People remain in good spirits.
Ghosts are scary.
How bad is the line and parking? Thanks for posting for those of us who are debating going.
-So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

Right now it isn't too bad. Free parking all around next to Yost. But I'd come sooner rather than later, because it will get really long soon.
Can we get a link or some sort of explanation?
Man ball. Formerly, somebody else.
Got here at 6:30 about 70 people deep
got here at 5 30, probably 40 people in front. Tent people, stuff ain't that great...
You know, Dude, I myself dabbled in pacifism once. Not in 'Nam of course.
Got here at around 9pm yesterday, 20th in line. People behind us don't stand a chance.
so your gonna be one of those guys that grabs everything then sorts it in the corner like some tool.
You know it!
You negged just about every "there are" post leading up the the 2011 season. Kinda douchey, IMO.

Would love a pair of game pants either m, l, or xl if someone can pick up a pair and not eBay the price.
a truckload of game pants! I got 2 pair and wearing one right now! Love em! They are from the UTL game because they have the old school adidas logo on the hip. I did'nt see your post til now or I would've got some extras!
Clearly, you and Homer Simpson are not of the same mind.

I put up a tough front, but deep down I just want to be held.
Doing pretty well. I am inside about to watch the Brazil/Mexico Gold medal game. I went last year to the garage sale and got a game used football, some warm ups, and one of Zoltan's old jerseys.
Curious, what kind of lacrosse stuff did they have? Any helmets or gloves?
Just jerseys from what I saw.
you made it. remember last week discussing if there’d be anything good to justify driving the distance, from chicago wasn’t it? hope you scored bigtime.
Jerseys and some polo's... Also what looked to be some lacross gear bags.
A guy about 5 or 6 people in front of us at the checkout had two helmets.
I just had to have a damn surgery yesterday. Wish I was there so badly. I want a practice jersey and pants so bad.
Next year you better hide yo jerseys, hide yo pants and hide yo helmets because I'm be buying everything up in there.
When the ADept sells special jerseys and gear, you'll see my picture next to the targeted customer crowd. A sheep.....but a Blue one.....
Got there right around 9, the line was stretching almost to Yost, but it moved pretty quickly and I probably waited 15-20 minutes. Just missed out on some nice wood bats ($10 new!) and almost all the baseball jerseys but I got:
-Used composite fungo bat ($25)
-Size 50 gray baseball jersey ($20)
-Catcher's chest protector and shin guards ($10 each)
-John Engels (RHP) autographed baseball that I found lying around somewhere ($5)
-Five different short-sleeved t-shirts ($5 total)
The line to pay was a little crazy, but much worse after I got in line, at which point it stretched all the way around. Just one line this year, not separate ones for credit and cash. It moved pretty reasonably, though.
The funniest sight for me was guys carrying racks worth of football jerseys. Not that I blame them--they're cool--but it's just funny seeing people trying to carry that many jerseys around. I definitely had a good time at my second garage sale, and I'll try to make it out earlier next year for some of the better stuff.
At least one of those guys carrying racks of football jerseys has listed a bunch on eBay for $160 each. Nice that the Garage Sale provides a cheap source of products for people to try to flip and make a barrel of money.
Hail to the college whose colors we wear,
Hurrah for the Yellow and Blue!
Not to mention that they grab as many as they can carry, go sit on the floor and sort through them, as has been mentioned in this thread. I always go to these looking for fun stuff for myself and my friends, but with an event like this I guess you're always gonna get the profit-seeking asshat-type.
Got some jerseys im looking to sell there. #28, #38, #12, #73, #44 and 3 others i can't remember right now. Email me at email@example.com if interested. Looking for 150 but willing to negotiate lower.
"I'm very good at Scrabble."
People like you are the issue in this world.
God forbid i try to make some money to help pay for college...
Yeah, I'm sure you'll cover the cost of tuition with a few jerseys. Buying stuff just so you can gouge people (who could have gotten it cheaper at the garage sale themselves) is lame.
So how about 75 for people who didnt get to go? Is that more reasonable? I wasn't taking anything others didnt have a chance to get. Im fact i offered them to a couple kids first before buying them.
seriously.. go away!
"It's great to be a Michigan Wolverine!!"
The charity act you're claiming is disingenuous and weak. Bugger off
What, you don't believe that a "poor college student" would buy eight $50 jerseys? What kid looking to make ends meet wouldn't do that?
