Im a chick and i just want some guys to stop yammering and watch the friggin game!!!!!
A woman who reads MGoBlog and hates reality TV? I didn't know there was such a thing. I wish all women were this smart.
There are some of us out there. Not many, but we do exist. You can have hope!
I was going to chime in, but then I remembered I like Project Runway. So maybe I don't count.
I read MGoBlog while watching Project Runway.
I thought we were discussing poultry.
women are not allowed in the man-cave.
there's a jerk-off station for crying out loud.
What happened in game 2?
just felt the post was pretty lengthy already, but there was a mich. professor behind us. He was the biggest asshole ive ever had to be within earshot of. He was making snide remarks about women and gay people and wanting to beat the shit out of the male baton twirler and blah blah blah.... i think he was just in love with the sound of his own voice. I couldnt believe he was a professor! So unprofessional!
A conservative professor at U-M?
I thought Ann Arbor was supposed to be the Berkly of the East?
Was this at UM-Flint?
for referencing "The Hills."
I love the fact that I can check the validity of this statement. You really did -1 her for mentioning The Hills. +1 to you for being honest.
I was slamming the hills, i hate that shit
At the Western game my husband and I were discussing various play calls and I made an observation about the use of the pistol formation by Western's offense. The guy behind me obviously heard me becuase when his buddy came back to sit down the guy repeated what I had said to his buddy. Needless to say he was incapable of saying anything original.
thats pretty funny!
A Michigan fan who refers to herself as a chick...definitely not in the RC.
A girl? On a college football blog? My head asplodes.
This is the wrong week for me to get uppity about swearing at the stadium.
About 4 seconds after Tate threw the INT in the end-zone, I yelled out a very audible "FUCK!!!"
To my credit, there were no children around. But I should get no credit, because I didn't look to see if there were children around until after yelling it.
I got a stern look from the ushers. But that was all.
I think they realized, as I did, that if there was ever a truly appropriate time to yell "FUCK!" really loudly, that was it.
If a child was in earshot, I hope he learned that yelling "FUCK!" is reserved only for moments when you think you all-of-a-sudden have a chance to beat Ohio State for like the 2nd time all decade, and your freshman quarterback throws an interception in the end zone.
And I really dislike it when people drop f-bombs in public with my kids close by, but I've got to agree, every so often, there's really nothing else to say.
Was once asked by a reporter about his use of profanity. Coleman Young, who was no one's village idiot, (he made a mockery of Senator Joseph McCarthy during the anti-Communist hearings, launching his own star, and starting the Senator's rapid decline) remarked that he did not cuss indiscriminately. When a particular situation required the word, "bullshit", he said, then use it.
I remember being at a game back in the day (okay, so I wasn't that young, I just looked it up) and having someone behind us shout gleefully about how bad James "Shit-ley" was playing. I would say it didn't scar me for life, but then again, I spend an awfully large chunk of my free time posting on MGoBoard, so maybe I didn't escape unscathed?
like bullshit!!!! at the lack of calls. like the obvious facemask i saw and the ref didnt. but sometimes people use a curse as everyother word, it was just excessive
I watched the game again on DVR. They got the call right. I thought it was a facemask too, by the way Tate went down. Really, the guy had his hand on the back of Tate's neck, to start with, and then the hand slid down the side of the helmet as they were going down.
But yeah, live it looked really really obvious. On the re-watch, I wasn't so sure.
Tate's fumble in the endzone was actually recovered on the 1/2 yard line and you can take that to the bank.
I screamed "fuck" from my couch on that same play... with my kids in the room. I figure it's educational... they are going to hear curse words for the entirety of their lives... might as well learn the proper occasion to use them.
Evidently my windows were open when the storm of cursing came out. And evidently middle aged women with young children don't like to hear their neighbors use such language. I swear its the damn South.
WAIT ARE YOU A FEMALE? WITH BOSOMS? I WILL NOW FAWN OVER YOU IN THE ABSURD AND VEIN HOPE THAT YOU MIGHT BE ATTRACTED BY SUCH BEHAVIOR AND PERHAPS ALLOW ME TO SEE, OR BETTER YET TOUCH, SAID BOSOMS.
Classy, I bet that charm makes you popular with the ladies.
Great post Brodie
so tell me, was the misspelling of "vein" on purpose, or just a misspelling?
I appreciate your position, but, unfortunately you'll have that behavior. Having said that, the ushers could certainly have done something about the vulgarity (especially if there's small children around).
We all assume a certain level of responsibility when doing anything in public, so...., you have to assume some yourself. In an atmosphere such as this, you have to accept certain unwanted behaviors. The language was a problem in our section as well. One descrete convo with an usher and the problem was not only solved, it was monitored for the remainder of the game.
NEWSFLASH (because I'm the only one who will say it): Being a female doesn't exempt you from being a n00b.
And guess what? You really don't have to bring it up unless it's somehow relevant to the point you're trying to make. I'm tired of every month or so a new "chick" shows up, posts about being a "chick," everyone goes OMG A CHICK and then by the next week NO ONE CARES because they have nothing of substance to say. I'm not accusing you of this, just advising you not to take that path.
And everyone else: Admit it, if the subject didn't start with "im a chick and," the response would be much different.
Just my epinion.
Frankly, I suspect it's a guy pretending to be a woman. But I'm cynical that way.
She's not pretending, I was at the game with her.
In all fairness, when I first got here I pretended to be a guy.
I can never remember if your tagline is referring to you or not, but it reminds me of a conversation that I had with one of my best friends from college, who happened to be a lesbian:
CASE: Something something college football something something.
FRIEND: Uh, how come I never knew you were into football?
CASE: I would have said something, but no one at [STUCK-UP EAST COAST ALMA MATER] is into football so I figured you weren't either.
FRIEND: [pause] Case, I'm a lesbian.
CASE: I know, but I didn't want to make a stupid assumption!
Haha, nice. It is referring to me, but I'm actually bisexual. [Insert male fantasy here]
Giggity giggity, giggity goo.
I try to keep a clear distinction between MGoBlog and Porn. You aren't helping.
Wait, so you haven't seen the MGoPorn?! It's all I have in these dark times
This post makes you lose your ability be critical of anyone posting to gain attention.
It prob had to take a woman to say it, but honestly if you want to talk about girls and get comments on your thread, go to a dating service website.
The biggest stigma on a website like this dominated by the male gender is the inclusion of the female gender. Let's try to get over that hump like we have "FIRE RR!!" and "DENARD IS FAST!!" and "13-0 NATIONAL CHAMPS 2010!!"
Will you go out with me?
WHAT THE FUCK
DID YOU FIND MY THREAD
Yes. Thank you MH20. I missed you too.
Don't tase me bro
CAN I HAVE YO NUMBAH?!???
yo lemme get that AIM or that MSN Messenger, girl.
about as classy as having the user name "Big Pussy"?????
That would be a Sopranos reference, but still... yea.
like he's trying to eat the cat... like a Big Ten Burrito
I honestly just realized a day or two ago that he's holding a cat in the picture. In that little box on the computer screen it really does look like he's just chomping a burrito (or giant sandwich). I kept wondering for weeks why the actor who played Big Pussy would have just stopped off at Chipotle before hitting the red carpet, but I thought it was a pretty cool move to pull before a Hollywood type event. Then I finally noticed the cat and ended up mildly disappointed (still a cool pic, but not what I had grown to love in my mind).
BlueDucky, I'm really happy for you, and ima let you finish, but CleverMichigan is the greatest female MGoBlogger of all time!
Wow, -31 points for saying "cute avatar". You people must really not like that avatar.
Since this thread appeared I've been playing nothing but Barry White
I've been watching the Kill Bill series on Spike.
Um, I think it's the avatar that's causing the stir. I'm willing to bet good money that if the avatar was Kirstie Alley or Courtney Love, she'd have one response, if that. I think this one is pretty obvious. By the way, I think there are a lot of "chicks" on this blog. They just don't identify themselves as such. I think tomhagan might be a chick.
as well as the Jim Harbaugh crush. You may be on to something.
Only kinda homo
'If I were a chick I'd be a dick (hmmm ...) to everyone I know and then blame it on my period and it would be okay.'
I lol'd at that last sentence.
If you're talking about "i think TomHagan might be a chick." I LOL'd too ... I even ROTFL'd.
My complaint was with stuff (grammar, EXCESS PUNCTUATION, similar topics already) that would not normally fly with the average n00b.
And I hope tomhagan isn't one of the incognito! You know I hate when other women make us look bad!
so is courtney love when not in coke wh*** mode
want a wine cooler this blog is making thirsty.
"THESE PRETZELS ARE MAKING ME THIRSTY!!"
Welcome, all Ladies of the MGoBlogosphere.
Without a doubt my favorite song from college.
I really needed a laugh-today.
Glad to see some of the ladies coming out of the woodwork.
I wish more of you would come out of the closest, so to speak. I am an excellent e-flirt, lol.
i am constructing a life sized doll for entertainment purposes. can you please send your calf measurements to
computer, the internet
But not for much longer. The sports blogging and online dating worlds will be turned upside when the two concepts are mashed together to form...
MGoDate! The first online dating service for Michigan football fans.
MGoDate is the solution the Michigan football community has been waiting for. Have you been trying to find a significant other who not only understands but shares your obsession with Michigan football? Intended to help connect potential soul mates who share the same loyalty to Michigan football as well as combat the problem of intermarriage into other fan bases currently facing the Michigan community, MGoDate can help you recruit that missing part of your dream team for two. Also open to gay fans too!*
*May not apply to certain parts of the United States, including Utah, Texas, and the SEC.
the ratio would be like 1000 to 1, might as well move to alaska
Montana, actually. Apparently Montana is one giant sausagefest. I don't know if it still happens, but I think that a number of years ago some company would bring a bunch of the guys to NYC and auction them off or something like that.
But yeah, MGoDate is a joke.
would this include poultry?
MGoLadies unite! <3
And I don't talk to chicks who don't watch "The Hills"
I'm going to neg every post in this thread.
Firstly I call bullshit on this post because it violates rule #1 of the internet - there are no chicks on the internet.
Secondly, the OP's observation, about men at football games displaying what is usually considered stereotypical female behavior isn't exactly news.
There's no such thing as "female" and "male" nature, only human nature. In our culture, does that nature tend to find differing expressions between the genders? Yes. However, they differ more on a surface level rather than essence.
For example the stereotype that is brought up and disputed in this thread - that women like things such as The Hills b/c of its drama, and men like things like football as opposed to The Hills b/c men aren't into drama like women are. Wrong. The reason men like football is precisely because it *is* drama - and more specifically the form of drama that in our culture's construction of masculiinity it is socially acceptable for men to like. The notion that men like football solely for the athletic spectacle (yes that's part of it but by no means all of it) is a very overly simplistic read on things.
- Did anyone notice how popular the thread was about a month ago that talked so much about the drama relative to Miles at Michigan? One dude got posbanged (no pun intended) like 50 points just because he said Miles banged a certain person's wife and ssid Lloyd had parkinson's and all kinds of crazy shit. People ate that up.
- The Favre saga - both parts I and II. No explanation needed.
Anyhow, things like football, WWE, utimate fighting or whatever that cage match stuff is called, etc. all have the same function for men in our culture that Grey's Anatomy and The Hills, and Desparate Housewives have for women. So, the OP isn't exactly groundbreaking or revelatory.
...but it's only a matter of time until one of you goes Marjorine on us and fakes your death, dresses up like a woman, and tries to infiltrate our sleepovers to find out what we're doing and steal the device.
Oh, we got the device. It happened in like early 2002. What we hadn't counted on was its extraordinary POWER. We were losing men right and left to something our scientists could only call "sensitivity."
Eventually we had the thing locked in crate and stored in an FBI warehouse among millions of exactly-the-same-looking crates, but not before it went viral and caused serious (fortunately, mostly temporary) behavioral changes in those that had been exposed to it.
Maybe you remember it: it was called "Metrosexuality."
You're here, you're not queer, but you're close. I guess we'll have to get used to it. Isnt' there a sale at Express for Men this weekend? Crab people anyone?
PS I can do this for days at a time without rest.
GREAT POST, GUY PRETENDING TO BE A "COOL" CHICK TO GET ATTENTION FROM DORKS ON THE INTERNET!
there was a guy sitting behind me and my friend who decided that Roy Roundtree is a good porn star name and proceeded to yell this at everyone (including a kid)in his general vicinity every time the announcer said his name.
For the record, I too said "fuck" at the highly frustrating plays. I couldn't help myself.
i had a really similar situation. two drunk pieces of trash sitting in front of me drinking rum out of a coke bottle. non stop swearing and screaming the entire game. right in front of this other guy's little daughter. someone finally said something to the dude and he went crazy. took his shirt off, started showing his army tatoos, talking about how he fought for his country, crying.
it was actually pretty sad. the guy was a complete moron, and he probably had some mental problems. the ushers removed him.
fact of the matter is, the worse the team does, the more season ticket holders will sell their tickets, and the more of these episodes we'll have.
Title of this post in my head without giving it the thickest Midwestern accent. Yammering sounds like something a Bob Evans waitress would say to an unruly crowd of Bowlers.
can this thread just die, please.
