I would love to. got kids and company. ..damn damn damn.
Mich vs UConn, viewing party at my house in San Diego
thread. Mick, I hope you get 50 dudes and they eat all of your bean dip.
I don't know why you are getting so much shit from everyone. This is a nice gesture. If I lived in San Diego, I would probably join you.
I figure some are just joking and some wanna be wise asses.
It's almost making me say fucki it, but I'll honor my word, already spoke to a couple of cool guys and I should know by tmrw, you can bring a spouse, friend or whatever, as long as they're M fans.
if I wasn't 3000 miles away.
Me too, if it weren't for 6013.1 miles.
As long as they're Michigan fans and they taste good grilled, right?
No, I'm kidding, San Diego Mick. I also think this is a very nice gesture.
I agree, props to you Mick for hosting people, nice of you to offer. Of course we've reached the age where everything is turned into a joke so that they can receive the props of their internet comrades and everyone is a stand up comedian. I blame reddit.
Can we watch Anchorman before and after the game?
Milk was a bad choice.
How generous Mick. If I lived in San Diego I would surely attend. Let us know how it goes.
I wish you were Phoenix Mick.
I'll be at the game... HA!
In the Bay Area!!! This sucks cause I'm going to miss 2 games in a row no to mention next week is a bye and I have to work Oct 5th!!! Jesus it's like spring ball all over again for me.
Wait a minute. San Diego. . . Mick. . .you're Phil Mickelson aren't you?
Phil is ditching Cali.
He should move to Scotland.
Sent you an email!
If you promise me a pile of Cali burritos from ortiz's in point Loma/Loma portal area I may have to fly in from WI
I guess I know what I'm doing tomorrow.
You will have to let me know how it goes so I can live vicariously through you. Colimas was my second favorite, maybe soley because of their avocado salsa.
Everyone should be giving props to this guy. He's inviting strangers over into his house. Fergodsakes. It's about THER TEAM THE TEAM THE TEAM. If I wasn't in training I'd jump seat out there and attend for moral support and to drink with awesome people.
very kind of you to say so, I felt bad for people not being able to watch and it pissed me off about the gameplan money grab from espn.
Michigan. San Diego's Big Ten team.
Hey Mick, that's very nice of you to offer. I'm actually in the La Jolla/UTC area, so not far from you, but I'm going to be out of town this weekend, otherwise I'd join you all. Very cool of you to host. It would be fun to meet some fellow MGoBloggers in San Diego. Anyway, enjoy the game this weekend. Go BLUE.
Nice to be appreciated, wish you could make it as well, oh well. Make a note of my email and drop me a note sometime and we can create an mgoblog family out here, you gotta be cool folks, you're an M fan , afterall.
I'm in the same boat, I won't be around this weekend but fully appreciate the gesture. I'm sure it'll be a great time. Thanks for the offer!
Reddit isn't showing the game in its televised contests sidebar!
dude, you are the boss. hope you all have a good time.
don't let those who insist on making mediocre jokes ruin this kind offer.
I won't be anywhere near you but I did visit San Diego for the first time last year. My girlfriend's sister got married and we went out there. A group of us rented a big house in Encinitas. San Diego was beautiful. Enjoy the game!
my aunt lives in Encinitas, cousin in Cardiff by the Sea (Carlsbad), dad in Cerritos, brother in Ventura, and sister in Marina Del Rey. I've notified them.
stock up on wine.
BTW, this is a great gesture and if I was still in Cali I'd join you guys. Go Blue!
Great offer! You're a great American, Mick.
However as my screen name insinuates.. frowny face.
Mick, we want a full report on Sunday. Never know what the Internet will come up with but they should all be Michigan fans so it is starting on the right foot.
Cheers and Go Blue!
I think we all know around here about the "pics or it didn't happen" rule. A mere report won't cut it.
True for most things. Dudes getting together to watch football, I'll take his word for it.
Looks like we'll have about 10-12 people here, pizza is the thing and M football is the game!
this is a great thing. don't know why some people turned it into what it became, but thanks for the offer. If I was around I would for sure take you up on it.
Plane tickets booked, on my way!
I got some beers - let's drink'em!
Wow, a lot of San Diego MGoBloggers. We should pick a bar and turn this into a weekly thing...
This sounds like a tremendous idea!
at PB Bar & Grill in PB every Saturday during the season. If you want something more low key and corporate people also meet at Randy Jones in Mission Valley. For North County folk, people meet at Tower 13 in Cardif on Saturdays. Also, if you want something less official and more dive bar-like there is Catalina Lounge in Point Loma, the owner is a UM grad and there's usually a few folk on hand.
If only you were DallasMick. For those of us with U-verse in North Texas, I'm assuming it's going to have to be an internet feed watch party.
My husband and I are both originally from Michigan and are die hard fans. Interested in getting together for the gem tomorrow... Need address.
Kevin and Laura
I left the email address on the OP post, I really don't want to post my home address on here.
Sent. Holding down the Mgoers in SD
Too far away too attend!
If you get a lot of people to attend, can I sit in the back of the room and yell "Down in front" to give it that genuine game feel?
Mick, its great you are doing this for the fans in your area. Hope you all have a great time!
But I don't want to piss anyone off and mess it up for everyone.
Someone should do a post game report post on how the first West Coast MGoBlogTailgate went.
but I'll be watching you from next door.
