I'm thankful for Greg Mattison..... what are you thankful for?
I thought I'd wish all of you a happy thanksgiving. We have a monumental game ahead of us this Saturday. This is the most pumped ive ever felt for a sporting event ever.
I just want to say that I am thankful for the university of Michigan. Not just in athletics, but what it stands for, worldwide. I am thankful for friends and family, and thankful for the MGOBLOG community, and this great ideal that we serve, day in and day out, in victory and defeat.
I'm counting my blessings, ladies and gentlemen. And I wouldn't mind adding one more...
To you and everyone else here as well. May everyone eat heavily and drink merrily too.
im thankful for friends and family. To a possible 10 win season and bcs birth. The greatest fan/alumni base in the country! oh and Beat Ohio!
I'm thankful for all the seniors on the football team, from starters to scout team players.
I am thankful for friends, family, having a great-paying job in hard times, but also my time as an undergrad at Michigan (and even as a graduate student down the street at EMU), Michigan athletics, this blog which lets me be my normal snarky self (to an extent) whereas I have to stifle it at home.....lots of things. :-)
I was undergrad UM and grad school at EMU, too (then off to Purdue for Ph.D.) EMU football was really bad when I went there. I'm glad to see it is finally improving.
I'm thankful for my wife - who is constantly reminding me what it means to be a good human. I'm thankful for my daughter - who has me back skiing and enjoying mother nature. I'm thankful for my dog who makes me run twice a day - and who is the main reason I'm no longer overweight. I'm thankful for the cat who barfs all over the house...
I lied about one of those.
Clearly, you don't enjoy mother nature.
Either that or he's a dog hater.
I am thankful for Michigan's tremendous coaches, staff, and players giving us a season full of good times. I'm also thankful that in 24 hours I'll be heading to the airport to go to my first ever game at the Big House to watch my beloved Wolverines pound the daylights out of Ohio. Oh and for family yada yada yada.
I'm thankful for football and making double time at work today!!
I'm thankful for my son, who turns the big T-W-O today. He'll be wearing his shoelace jersey and (because of laziness on my part and unwillingness to sit still on his) is getting pretty close to having a Lloyd Brady haircut. I'm thankful for my wife, who despite being from Mexico and having no interest in sports whatsoever, listens to me talk about sports and try to explain to her why Rich Rod actually isn't a bad coach. When they announced he got hired at Zona, she said, "Great. Now he can ruin someone else's football team." I'm thankful for my family and friends, and I'm thankful that we live in a place where we can spend hours a day watching sports and just as much time coming on MGoBlog and discussing it, and knowing to a great degree that is possible because some of our friends and neighbors place themselves in harms way to protect that. I am thankful for those friends and neighbors and pray that someday, all of them will get to spend Thanksgiving with the ones that they love. Happy Thanksgiving MGoBrothers!
Thankful for my family, my home, my dog, my talents, and the most pleasant season I can recall since 2006. May we continue to be blessed on Saturday.
Navy guy here, thankful for being on shore duty in Michigan, recruiting, ugh, but still being in my home state for now, with family and being able to watch all the games, home cooked meal, and surrounded by family, instead of being on the ship or overseas. Thankful for this blog, love the live blog during the game, it's like being in a room full of people all making great comments. Thankful for a coach that gets it, Mattison, Borges, Kovacs!! Oh, and for some reason, Drew Dileo, he always shows up at just the right time.
Please, Lions, win today, my wife is a GB fan and she is already too full of herself.
I'm thankfull for your service and all those in uniform.
Particularly those who wear the maize and blue.
Thanksgiving was in October, people (Canadian).
I figure if I'm thankful for anything, it's all you wonderful Americans who make the online UofM community so awesome.
Happy Thanksgiving several weeks late from the American contingent of the MGoCommunity.
Apologies for the tardiness.
Cool. What are some of the Canadian Thanksgiving Day traditions?
I am thankful to the Regents for hiring Mary Sue Coleman for hiring David Brandon for hiring Brady Hoke for hiring Greg Mattison and to all the other coaches, players, staff and fans.
I'm thankful Greg Robinson is no longer cratering my football teams.
This is by far my favorite holiday. I'm thankful for my family and friends,for the maize and blue,and all the amazing young men on our beloved football team. I'm also thankful for this here blog, where I not only learn an awful lot about football, but get quite a few laughs too.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
Go Blue, Beat Ohio.
I know I don't know any of you, other than what you post, and most of you are probably a decade younger than me (or more), but this community has kept me connected to my alma mater and has reminded me of the four years spent going to games, celebrating wins (by drinking) and consoling losses (by drinking).
It's a simple bond, but one we all share through any generation. I am thankful for such a tradition-rich history, and for a legacy of excellence.
Happy Thanksgiving to my Michigan family, and Go Blue!
I'm thankful for my family, my wife and two fine sons who are Michigan grads, and our friends, who stay with us on Thanksgiving. We are getting up at the wee hours of the morning on Saturday to drive up to Ann Arbor to see Michigan kick some Ohio butt. That, my friends, will be the icing on the cake. I want to again feel the way we felt at UTL, when none of us wanted to leave. It is time.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I am thankful for my family, friends, and opportunities that have been provided to me.
Good omens from the Macy's Day Thanksgiving parade: Muppets and the Hawaiian War Chant.
Eating starts today...and finishes on Saturday.
