I want to think the mgoblog community for allowing me to become part of something so special and helping us reach our goal for the garden project. The rewards took a little longer than we expected but we got them all ordered and as soon as we get the order back you will get your reward. (Side Note) I will be attending my first game in the BIG HOUSE 11-10-2012 I'm tired of watching the games from home and i'm ready to tailgate never got that chance to do it because i was always playing so i'm ready to experience that.
Garden Rewards & Game [Ed-PGB: READ THIS!]
...Mr Odoms. Your humanitarian and noble effort is applauded by many! You're a true Michigan Man. Go Blue!
Thanks for stopping in. You're doing a great service to those from your hometown. However, I have some hard hitting questions for you:
1. As a former small (by football standards) player on a major BCS team, are you at all jealous that Doug Martin got the nickname "The Muscle Hamster"? Had that been your backup nickname if Tay didn't pan out?
2. What the hell was up with the Greg Robinson beaver? Part of the "cuttin' wood" theme?
3. Could I beat Denard Robinson in a footrace if he was drunk and wearing roller skates?
This should explain the beaver thing. Around 3 minutes.
3:54 answers my question about the beaver.
Thanks for this. I never knew that.
But I was always pretty fond of Brian's Tay Odoms = Mountain Goat meme. Mountain Goat beats Muscle Hamster any day.
I want to congratulate you on all you have done for the University and your community. I am glad the Kickstarter campaign went so well. The swag was definitely an encouraging reason to donate, but moreso the money is going to a good cause.
Are you going to be stopping by any tailgates this weekend?
I want to thank you for your support. I was thinking about coming around and meeting some of the fans and supporters at the tailgate location. But I wasn't sure about how to go about it.
Great to have you on the board Martavious. Your efforts for your community are to be applauded! Keep doing great works with your life and you will be a rich man - in all the ways that matter.
Enjoy your first tailgate! It's an amazing experience.
Any chance you'll get on the field during a TV timeout for a little recognition? You deserve it.
You were a joy to watch on the field, I hope you like watching a game how the rest of us have been!
I am really not enjoying the regular way of watching the game from home or in the stands and I totally feel what you all feel when you watch the game from the stands or at home. It is very nervewracking.
Congratulations on reaching your goal! It is a great cause and it was an honor to donate and be of some help. Have fun tailgating this Saturday as well!
Its been our pleasure having you contribute to MGoBlog and watching you start your post-college life by giving such a great thing back to your community. You are setting a great example for others and should be very proud of yourself (as we all are of you).
If I can be selfish for a moment, it would be great if you continue to check in here from time to time, especially to drop some of your football knowledge on us all. Regardless, know that you were appreciated by all of us for all that you did on the football field and now for all that you are doing as a representative of Michigan in the "real" world.
I really don't like to talk about football because I love to play it so much and I like to be involved but I am working on that and I am trying to get more involved into your community. It is all of us that is working together to set a great example.
for who you are on and off of the field Mr. Odums, you truly are a Michigan man, let me know if you want to experience a true Michigan tailgate.
Current Karma Value is at 4. Very fitting.
A Karma value of 4??? Now THAT'S impressive. I mean our fearless leader's Karma value is only a 2 so that's saying something.......
Great work Tae. You are welcome at our tailgate anytime you like!
to contribute to our analytical football discussions. We'd love that!
for the block that sprang Denard for his first UM touchdown! You'll not be forgotten.
I was at the game. Still remember that awesome TD run and the great block by Mr. Odoms. It was an honor to watch you play for Michigan.
I remember that play like it was yesterday and I was suppose to get a reverse but somehow Denard fumbled the snap so he picked it up and started running so I started blocking, something that I enjoy doing and its been history ever since.
Thank YOU for giving back to the community and for making us alums/fans so proud.
I am always sad this time of year when Oberon gets harder and harder to find.
We're all happy to support a Michigan man doing positive things for his community. Thanks for making a difference and making all of us who love the Maize and Blue proud.
Am I the only one that thinks "Tailgating with Tae" would have been a really great reward for the Kickstarter? I will gladly trade my shorts for that.
Thanks for all you're doing, being a GREAT Michigan Man!
It should read "Taelgating with Tae." For which I'd donate all the mgoblog points.
I've always felt for athletes who never get to experience tailgating because you are always playing.
Thank you for all that you are doing to give back. You are a tremendous representative of Michigan. Thank you, Mr. Odoms!
If I may add . . . if you're going to hit up some tailgating before the game make sure to wear your letter jacket. I fear that some people might not recognize you without your helmet on and not give you the ample amount of free food and pats on the back that you deserve (if you want them, that is).
I am definitely not that guy - I neither purchased a varsity jacket nor do I return for anything HS related. Now if I had a real college letter jacket, that would be a different story!
Where can I get one of those?
Great work Martavious! It was an honor to be involved in some small way.
Make sure to tell Hoke that he needs to keep recruiting Florida hard. You fellas have seen the bad and been a big part of bringing the program back to good over the last several years.
Swag is good, but gardens are better. So glad to be a part of this very positive project!
One of my favorite Wolverines of the past decade. Top 5 for sure. And that was just for your spirit and on-the-field play. Now, by taking on this project, you're in your own category. Can't thank you enough.
Great cause.. Martavious, you are the best. Go Blue!
Thank you for the opportunity to contribute. I'm a Michigan alumna now living in Florida, and I've spent a lot of time volunteering with homeless children and low-income families in the Orlando area. I know there is much work to be done... but it's people like you and programs like this one that make a difference and change lives, one step at a time.
Enjoy your visit to the Big House!
I didn't donate to get swag. I donated because you are working towards a cause that i strongly believe in and you obviously believe strongly in it too. Not that i don't look forward to my swag. I'll wear it with pride and can't wait to explain the meaning and story behind the t-shirt, but i'd rather that the garden be moved along than me get a t-shirt.
So no apologies needed, and thank you for dedicating yourself to something like this.
It's for a great cause, and it was very impressive to see the MGoCommunity rally for it. Thank you Mr Odoms and Go Blue
