or remain steady with the planned package his wife sent him to the store with?
GERG sighting at Kroger today
That's all well and good, but did he have a Kroger Plus Shopper's Card?
to each coach when they came to Ann Arbor. it's in my expose for this Sunday's paper.
But have any coaches used the cards to buy recruits and/or players groceries? Thus creating a competitive advantage by providing them with free toiletries, breakfast cereals, and 10 for 10 on 2 liters of soda.
How did his hair look?
Finely manicured, on the quick glance I stole back at him.
This is quite possibly the dumbest question ever posted on MgoBlog. I'm pretty sure that the perfection of Gergs' majestic platinum mane should never be in question.
I did not mean to imply that it was anything less than perfect. I was hoping to get a more detailed description of how awesome his hair looked in person. Something along the lines of how his hair shone so brightly under the flouresent lighting, everyone near the checkout counter had to put on shades; or how his glorious locks left all who witnessed him with feelings of euphoria that lasted well into the day.
But you know, I was so excited I sort of breathlessy blurted out "How did his hair look" without taking the time to avoid sounding so clueless.
As he drinks a pina colada at Trader Vic's -- perfect!
I think the real question here is: did he have any "Just for Men" in his cart? Seriously, can anyone really have hair THAT silver without a little "help"?
Cuffs and collar, and all that.
cool story hansel
this was the most painful reference i've seen yet
I saw Kevin Koger in a Kroger once and I tried really hard to make a "Koger-Kroger" joke but I just ended up pooping myself
It's more versatile and I heard he doesn't like to have to use a nickel or dime package
he provides his own sack
Dude, go to Meijer.
kept running into Shafer
You had the choice between a Michigan based grocer or an Ohio based grocer and you picked Ohio. You might as well have been paying Pryor's car payment yourself.
I hope you feel good about yourself.
Yikes, tough crowd. People buy "Worst State Ever" t-shirts, but when I say "support Michigan businesses over Ohio businesses" it's too much? Defend yourselves, neg-bangers.
they use neither logic nor reason
your Pryor comment ringing a bit too O$U'ish
That's fair, I thought it was all in good fun, but I get it. My first comment makes no mention of anything like that, but maybe I'm getting the "neg all his posts" treatment. Maybe it's because I'm from Grand Rapids (where Meijer is HQ'ed), but I will support the MI company over the OH company 10 times out of 10.
Ah Grand Rapids, where the question isn't "Should I shop at Meijer?" it's "Should I shop at Clyde Park Meijer, Cascade Meijer, Knapp Meijer, Ghetto (for another month or two) Meijer, Kalamazoo Meijer, or some other Meijer?"
Alpine Meijer? Standale Meijer? What the hell!
IS GHETTO MEIJER GOING OUT OF BUSINESS?!
Fond memories of that place. BTW is Studio 28 still open?
Nah, it's history. I heard that during my junior year of college they opened a bar in the building, and it just got more and more ghetto after that.
NOT THE FRENCH QUARTER OF MEIJERS!!!!
As an aside...I'm at the french quarter all of the time....
EDIT: Yet another aside. Does anyone remember the last time the Brickhouse got shot up?
I was on my way there that night after leaving The Bob, but my woman didn't want to go, so we back tracked to the car, and heard about it on the news the following day.
I've been at a few clubs when shooting broke out. Scary stuff.
I used to go there when it was Magoo's......
Ghetto Meijer is being redone as we speak. The old building is going to be torn down as soon as the new one is done. Everything including food is currently 10% off.
Studio 28 has been closed for at least a couple years now I think.
Ghetto Meijer for me was the Plainfiled Meijer. It was just Meijer until the Knapp Meijer opened, then that one became Meijer and Plainfield became Ghetto Meijer.
The *real* ghetto Meijer is on 28th and Kalamazoo. I'm just disappointed I never got to enjoy the McDonalds that used to be above the checkout lines.
Yeah, I've been to that one, and that one's more ghetto than my ghetto Meijer, but I was a NE guy, so that's where we went. My first job was at the Knapp Meijer, shortly after it opened - fun fact about me.
Ghetto? I prefer "multicultural" Meijer"...
It's Walmart or bust here.
If not, we might have reason to be concerned about his conditioning.
Sounds like his conditioner is fine, though.
So no discussion with him? I'd have to say something if he was in line right behind me. Even a quick hello or Go Blue.
Yes, I did offer a quick "Go Blue."
He said it back.
Was he wearing a brightly colored maize polo, by chance?
I like it, cause I go to school in Dayton (Sinclair, not UD) and have to park at Welcome Stadium a lot.
He probably rushed home to tell his family that he ran into VictorsValiant09 today.
"pics or it didn't happen"
once he starts coordinating from the press box you'll never catch him in Kroger again. He'll use Peapod.
is there plans to do coordination from the new boxes or were you being facetious?
I know of no plans for GERG to move upstairs. And, no, I wasn't being facetious. I was being silly and bored.
He'd say about GERG....that his hair was perfect.
One of the best movie scenes ever, even if it is Tom Cruise (and his hair DOES look kinda like GERG's):
You just won at life. Warren Zevon combined with Gerg is perfect.
He scared the shit out of me because he was fucking around with one of those fat people scooters and I thought he was injured.
Probably just a little sore from all that scythe swinging
I was wearing a T-shirt with a dinosaur on it (my 2 year old picked it out for me) and had just got done rock climbing at the indoor place down the street. I had stained Michigan maize shorts on, and was holding a handful of sugar-dense products (with said 2 year old at the grandparents, my wife and I had a pseudo-date night which means abnoxious amounts of desserts). Then in line, he was next to us, I literally fumbled my credit card on the floor trying to pay for everything.
I felt like such a douchebag. A sweaty, grungy douchebag. Probably because I looked like a douchebag who just got done doing a garbage can full of meth and was fiending for glucose.
Too bad Shafer couldn't get his defensive players to run into the ball carriers more often.
mean to say that you saw Gerg at Korger?
But at the Women's Football Academy, he referred to us females as "girls." Normally annoying, but in this case, it was sort of endearing but only because he's a fine physical specimen for an older guy. And that hair.....
They're real people as well!
Look, it's Mike Barwis taking his wolves for a run!
And we see Lloyd Carr visiting the kitten cemetery in his backyard!
Finally, concluding this pet centric episode, we find Rich Rodriguez euthanize bunny rabbits!
Coaches, they're just like us!
do you have any scotch?
So that thing on your phone, it's called a camera. Pretty simple to use in a situation like this.
... we want a photo, some key inside info, and hear about your witty remarks.
Remember, this is MgoBlog:
"Step your game up!"
That saying scares me - I don't know what "it" is, and I also do not know what form "take" takes. It rings of scenes from too many prison movies.
at the internet version of Degrees of Kevin Bacon
Last year I saw Tate at Mark's Midtown and shook his hand and told him good luck. The week after that the meltdown ensued. I'm relieved to read that you did not touch him. Don't ever touch one of them. Ever.
I love that one - my pre-tailgate Kroger.
No, the one on South Industrial.
I saw GERG last week walking back from Kroger. He was jogging down a intersecting sidewalk, I was carrying my bags up State St (I live across the street from Schembechler hall) and boom, there he was, running in slow motion. It was only the two of us...the sun seemed to glisten perfectly off that snow white hair. He turned, sizing me up for just a moment (5'7, 180ish pounds, been there with Cissoko...)...and then continued onwards across the street and through the Schembechler parking lot.
Only tangentially related, but when I lived in EL I saw Paul Davis at Meijers. He was with his parents, and looked about as gumpy and awkward as any Mr. Michigan in history.
Oh, and I also saw Lloyd Carr early in the morning on my way to the UM track. He was driving by in a Lexus SUV and glowered at me. Later that day, I also saw him walk by the CCRB, and he glowered at me again. It was the OSU week, so I actually felt like part of the team as he stared at me with thinly-veiled disdain. I must have looked like Brutus to him.
+1 for "tangentially"
Does your head look like a piece of crap, and were you wearing striped pajamas?
Periodically, random people here seem to come in for that treatment by commenters with the maturity of sociopathic, pimple-pocked 13-yr olds from alcoholic, dysfunctional families who have never set foot in a UM classroom but who have a hair trigger when it comes to any comment that can be construed as anything other than happy sunshine for Michigan or the UM. Have an opinion that a particular recruit won't sign with us? That Michigan might not go 10-2 next season? That there's a tiny chance we'll lose to ND? That Michigan is not necessarily the bestest, most wonderfullest university in the whole universe? Fire up those neg muscles, even if you couldn't find your own way onto campus with three Garmins, ten maps, a seeing eye dog, and Mary Sue Coleman.
you're going to make them angry!
Let's agree on a rule. Anytime we get a random Gerg sighting, let's get an accurate description of hair and tan.
This thread is great! One of the funniest ones I've read in a while.
