I figured someone would have posted this already, but today is Denard's 21st birthday. I hope he celebrates by putting a complete game together on Saturday.
On a side note, anyone do anything especially memorable on their 21st?
the only thing memorable about my 21st is that I don't remember it
Let us all pray you did not spend your first night as a 21-yr old the same way all of us did.
I went to Charley's: CLOSED!
BTB Cantina: CLOSED!
All those bars on South U: CLOSED!
Ricks: OPEN!!!! With 8 other people in it.
Lamest 21st ever, that's what I get for a birthday over Christmas break.
The Pretzel Bell was a tradition when I was at Michigan. It had been there for more than 50 years and everyone thought it would last forever. I don't know exactly when it closed, but I do know it's been a long time gone. What a great place, with all the Michigan memorabilia on the walls!
...the Pretzel Bell...the Castors...closed in the '80s.
Institution before my time, but knew its lore. I think there is a plaque/cornerstone of some sort on the building recognizing its history.
In 1981, the thing to do at 21 was "ring the Bell" at the Village Bell on South U. That was 21 of whatever drinks your friends put in front of you that night. Sorry the V-Bell is gone. Not sorry Denard won't be able to ring his bell there. (What idiots we were...)
No drinking during the season!
As for my 21st, let's just say that something happened that caused a rift between me and a lifelong friend, so much so that we still haven't spoken to one another since that day 4 years ago. Hopefully Denard's doesn't end with a shower and a change of clothes like mine did.
You can't go there and just be all generic.
Was there a real tiger locked in the bathroom the next morning? Was there a naked asian guy trapped in the trunk of your car?
You gotta tell us details now...
Seriously... it gets the mind wandering wondering what might have happened...
$5 it's female related. We're all waiting with baited breath...
Its gotta be about a girl. And if it is, I strongly suggest that the OP remain silent because no good will come from revealing that secret (unless a girl is reading it and its an extremely romantic and chivalrous story about how he saved this girl from a horrible relationship).
You're all a bunch of vultures. Anyway, long story short, I took about 5 shots too many of Captain, blacked out, and woke up the next morning on the floor covered in was later to be revealed as yesterday's dinner.
With no memory of what happened, my roommate informed me that I had been chill all night until all of a sudden, while talking to aforementioned friend, I puked (for lack of a better word...if there even is one) all over her, from head to toe. She had to take a shower and borrow clothes from someone while I was hauled upstairs so as not to do further damage. As I said earlier, that friend and I haven't spoken since.
Not what I was thinking at all.
You really baited us with the shower, Captain and change of clothes there sir.
who can't be covered head to toe with your vomit on your 21st birthday and laugh about it really wasn't your friend anyway
Also, that seems like a pretty silly reason not to talk to a friend for years.
at vomiting on me when it comes to friendship
by the way, it is "bated," unless you were actually eating sushi. OIC - with your screen name, "baited" still works.
I thank you for correcting me - srsly. I did not know that.
I would buy you this gift if it existed and the NCAA did not
JHC don't let Lahey get a hold of Shoelace! At least until he graduates.
BTW, Happy Birthday Shoelace!
I was drunk half the time and growing dope in grade 6....my 21st birthday was just another day at the office for Lahey.
Why don't you just frig off Mr. Lahey? Ya drunk bastard
This is my gift to you Shoelace! This is the ONLY way you can tie your shoes, Rocket Style!
Good luck this weekend!
Happy Birthday and plz be safe Denard
which started and ended at Rick's in a blur. For our team preparation, I hope his did not include Rick's.
All I want for Denard's birthday is a W.
I am of the legion that celebrated his 21st birthday at Charlie's. Please, don't do this.
The following morning. That night I had a beer with my roomates and then I had to study, so that sucked.
I made up for it hardcore that weekend though at my buddy's wedding in Colorado. The thin air makes 3 beers feel like 6 when you're not used to it.
I took a quantum physics exam at 8:30am the day after my 21st, seriously. Therefore, I studied on my 21st b-day.
since denard travels at the speed of light, does time even have an effect on him, and, if not, does he even have a birthday?
Take it easy out there tonight.

Happy birthday #16, may your speed and awesomness continue on. Sorry we didn't get a card out in time, I've been busy reading Mgoblog and forgot to tell my wife to send a card. My kids would have drawn pictues on it, you would have have loved it and it would have made you smile instead of you making us smile.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DENARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My 21st I ended up splitting a fifth of jäger with another person with very little redbull in less than an hour. Horrible horrible night.
Happy Birthday Denard! If the NCAA would allow it I'd have my wife in the kitchen baking you a huge cake!
Happy Birthday, Denard!
It seems only fitting that he was born on a college football Saturday. We beat UCLA 38-15 the day Denard was born.
Happy Birthday, Dearest QB!
Go Blue! Stay dry........er than some of us did. No, seriously, stay dry for Saturday.
I drank a lot of Bass Ale and smoked about a zillion Winstons at Ashley's with one or two pals. It could have been better, but it could have been a lot worse.
Happy 21st, Senor Dilithium!
of an apartment building, almost got arrested in a 7-11 and woke up to a room full of people who thought that I had died about 5 hours earlier.
Happy Birthday, Denard!! Know that you are loved by many. Not just for what you do on the field, but because of the type of man that you are.
I was on a boat folating around somewhere in the pacific ocean picking off lots of Albacore tuna.
I did not even realize it was my 21st bday! I partied a lot later that year after landing my first big full time job! It was fun being young and finally having some money to do shit!
Happy Birthday DROB! I hope you have a big game on Saturday.
As my mom's birthday! Happy birthday!
Last thing I remember about my 21st was passing out on a South U trashcan in front of Panchero's. First thing I remember when i woke up was sitting in my toilet, naked, covered in shit and vomit. Later that night I got laid, so it wasn't all bad.
Denard just invited 25,000 of his followers to Colonial Bowling alley. Lol. I wonder if he ties his bowling shoes?
Been bowling with him before, he doesn't tie his shoes.
He's also pretty awful at bowling, fwiw.
Thank you for being the best in the world! <---grandson Isaiah
p.s. I have your shirt! <---also Isaiah (who is breathless lol)
p.p.s I'm fast too! <--- you know who
Take some blockers, just to be on the safe side.
Don't.get too fucked up GO BLUE!!!!!"
had my ID ready to pull out.....and the Bitch didn't even card me!
Denard should be in the film room, preparing for Saturday. Or in the weight room.
</sports talk radio caller>
...certainly a chorus of 16 candles is in order.
Denard is going Bowling. Sounds like a good time to me.
Happy Birthday Denard!!!
On my 21st I purchased and drank a six-pack of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. It was literally at 12:01 when I bought it, and the cashier did a double-take when she saw my id.
Good god, I'm such a dork.
I walked down to Village Corner from my dorm room (lived in Oxford because I was a transfer student) around 11:50 or so, grabbed a four-pack of Guinness cans, and the guy at the register looked at my ID, looked at me, looked at my ID again and said, "Sorry, I can't sell this to you for four more minutes."
Don't worry, Denard went bowling.
having a fake sort of took the luster off my 21st.
