Does spending the week in Ann Arbor with my sons, both Michigan Alums, and a couple of grandkids, count? There is enough Michigan gear here to compete with M-Den.
Michigan gear you got for Christmas?
Negging people on Christmas? How rude!
Last year featured a Michigan-heavy set of gifts for me with a few t-shirts, a hat and even a Michigan polo which I wear to work on occasion. This year, I managed to land a Michigan hoodie - actually the first new hoodie I have had in ages, so that will get quite a bit of wear in this weather, I am sure. Like the OP, I also got an MDen gift card because, to paraphrase my wife, the store exists in our bedroom closet.
...to save my pennies to spend at The MDen.
More Charles Woodson than Michigan, but still counts in my book.
Did the warm looking scenery come with the bottle?
Customized in Maize and Blue colors! It's great!
IMG_8160.png merry Christmas to all of you and happy and wonderful new year
I got a Vamos Azul shirt and a "Those who stay will be champions" banner to hang in my basement.
Myself a sweatshirt. Swag
Sldr tp 3-wood.....best fairway to hit the market in years
4 tickets to the game against Holy Cross. We are only in country for two weeks so I am fired up to see a game and check out the new Crisler.
We also bought the kids t-shirts for the game and maize and blue socks. I'll make a M Den run with some of the cash I picked up. Not sure what I will get but I'm definitely picking up a shirt for my driver in China. I have to spread the love to new places!
I hate being jewish
But we get eight crazy nights!
Got a game program and a ticket from the 1936 game against Penn, which is extra cool for me (I went there for grad school after undergrad at U of M). A pretty awesome job by the wife this year.
Package of Michigan Kleenex from my dad so I can "dry my tears". I had a good laugh.
I could have used those...
My wife picked me up these for the "boo boos"
First time in my memory I don't recall getting anything Michigan related. It may be because I didn't ask for anything. I'll be glad when 2013 is through.
I got the Hail, yes! Paper from the day after the 97 rosebowl game with Woodson pointing to the sky framed. I love my soon to be wife!
I've been meaning to pick that up and get it framed, haven't gotten around to it yet. Was that the Detroit News or Free Press that sells those things? Thanks!
Somewhere I have the Daily commemorative edition from after the OSU game, signed by just about everyone on that team except Woodson. Should get that framed eventually. Got all of the signatures at the Football Bust.
During dinner, my buddy and I noticed Griese got up to go to the bathroom, and being the enterprising 12 year olds we were, we got up too and waited outside in the hall to get a quick signature. Ended up getting a shoutout in his speech later that night.
I found my 1999-2000 Michigan basketball jersey in my old dresser and it still fits. The perks of being husky in my youth.
First time since...ever.
Does it count if I just bought a Tom Harmon autograph for myself. It arrived on Monday?
My wife got me an autographed photo of Jim Harbaugh..nice!
And a maize Climalite hoodie
...a finished wooden box engraved with the Block M! They wouldn't do it in maize and blue because they were worried about copyright infringement, so they did it in gold.
I had also asked for a Michigan bracelet...kind of like the old 'livestrong' bracelets, but she had a hard time finding them; apparent Michigan only sells huge, thick ones that look like the bar bracelets that let everyone know you're old enough to drink. Don't suppose anyone on the site knows where I could get a normal sized one?
You mean like the MGoBlue for Motts cause bracelets?
Wife said no way in hell does that come into the house. Currently building man cave in the garage. Women just dont understand!
M slippers, M flippy floppies, M fleece, M camo workout shirt. MGOMerryChristmas!
This year my wife went with a UTL1 theme. She got me an autographed Denard Jersey from the game and an autographed photo. She also got me a photo signed by Roy Rountree of his game winning catch from the game. We don't own a home yet, but when we get one this will be a great start to my Michigan Man Cave
I received the 2014 football calendar, a really nice Michigan hoodie, and most importantly, my acceptance letter from UofM!(got that one a few days early) All in all a great holiday
Congratulations on being accepted.
Did it come by email with that cool video or was it an actual letter?
My Michigan family sent my boys each a Michigan jersey and a Michigan football. They are 5 and 1. My 3 year old daughter got a Michigan cheerleader outfit.
As a non-drinker, I've always used a Michigan Koozie as a cell phone case. This year I was surprised with a Michigan phone case for my S4. Pretty stoked.
Wife also framed my favorite pick of my 3 kids wearing Michigan gear early in the fall. All 3 were representing and smiling. Will go up in my office!
Also got a new GoRuck bag! Nothing to do with Michigan, but is freaking sweet!
A new outdoor flag, 1/4 zip sweatshirt and pajama pants. Pretty happy with it all.
I suck at embedding pictures ... but my bother put together a promo event with Desmond Howard and Jalen Rose for the Notre Dame weekend. He had them sign this and gave it to me for Christmas:
Hold on to that one. That's a great collectors-type item
EDIT: and I still have my 30M MGoPoints! It's a Festivus miracle!
EDIT: Not anymore. Having all that imaginary power was fun while it lasted.
Shirt...which concealed tickets to the Minnesota game on March 1st! Not bad
I was sorry to see it close. I have a Drake's miniature M Go Blue football in my office, circa 1980.
or loved the Drake
these pretzels are making me thirsty!
For when the business casual outfit needs a touch of the Michigan Difference
and a Vinyard Vines tie with alternating M's and helmets so I can represent at work.
It's gloriously 80s
zip up adidas jacket/sweatshirt and a maize and blue scarf. (I'm a scarf gal) I didn't get the hubby any clothes, but got him the Michigan gumball machine for our Michigan basement.
A little shower puffer with a Wolverine for a handle...........$1.99 from Walgreens.
I got the Tiedman & Formby vintage Woodson #2 jersey! A+ for the wife!!!
got the same one today. Can't wait to put that on Saturday.
(currently 2) one picture off of the mgoblue site every year for Christmas. Last year I went with the game winning field goal against state, this year I had the hardest time picking. I ended up with Burke's shot against Kansas, but it's from the sideline and I'm not sure it's even that shot. UTL was my other pick, but there wasn't a game defining play.
I only got a couple of things, but I wouldn't be shocked to get more after visiting my inlaws. I did get Mark Spencer's old Michigan light plate for a light switch if anyone follows back up punters...
A Trey Burke Jazz jersey and Denard Jaguars jersey
I got a signed Denard Robinson jersey.
No Michigan stuff here. My dad got me a Bears zip up fleece even though he knows I don't like the Bears and the Pats are my team. At least he's consistent.
I got a framed UTL1 panorama pic. If you look closely, you can see it's taken seconds after Tree's catch in the corner to win the game. So sweet! Still cannot believe we won that game!
Already up in my office -- looks so awesome! GO BLUE!
I have a panorama like that right after one of the Red Wings Stanley Cup wins (can't recall which one). I would trade you in a heartbeat!
I got a 4x6 block M flag! Nice addition to the man cave.
Got Michigan bball tickets, Michigan bowl, Michigan tree ornament, Michigan yard ornament, , and Michigan magnets for the car!
Luckily, I spent the day in Michigan sweatpants, a Michigan sweatshirt, and Michigan Santa hat, so I'm not short on maize and blue.
I gave my 10 year old son a Devin Gardner jersey. He's loving it.
page-a-day Michigan trivia calendar, and a Michigan Tervis. I didn't even know WTF a Tervis was until I got it...not too shabby I guess.
I got the Woodson jersey poster. And a bejeweled Michigan cardholder as a joke but I'm going to rock it like a boss.
Actually it'll go to my niece who jut got her temps. Stay off the roads in Ohio.
Also got a Michigan football ornament.
Otherwise kind of light on the Michigan gear.
Grandma sent me a sweet Michigan zip up sweater... Only thing is it's meant for the opposite sex.
Online buyer problems I'm hoping.
Dave Brandon is VERY happy you all are getting Michigan gear as Christmas gifts.
I love my Michigan gear, and also, I WANT the UM athletic department to have money for things like the awesome stadium renovations, Chrysler arena, and the upgrades to other facilities that are in the works.
You profit haters make me want to barf. It takes MONEY to keep our programs up with those of our rivals, and recruits are very aware of facilities. Remember that most sports are not self-sufficient so we are supporting those as well.
I like Michigan to have money and donations and sell things, but there's a line that Dave Brandon has crossed where he would try and get more money just to have more money. I get the sense that he only cares about profit and he's not running a corporation anymore. It's a huge turn off for some of us.
otherwise, you would no how to spell the name of our basketball arena. Hint: its not named after a car company.
Nothing huge, but I got a new Michigan snowboard hat.
I got my son a number 47 jersey with "JMFR" on the name plate. I expect high fives for him at games next year from MGOBLOGGERS!!
Merry Christmas and Go Blue
That is too cool! How old is your son? Lol
Y'all are so jealous...
All I got M-related was a stylish winter hat
Got some cool swag for the fam, though.
For the mother, a Columbia maize vest
For the brother, winter hat and athletic shorts
For the sister in law, Columbia maize fleece
For the nephew, a U of M Camelbak bottle from UGP
And the best one I think, for my niece, a custom Michigan cheerleader outfit for her American Girl doll.
New Michigan hat from my daughter. I was due for a new one.
Since we were coming up north for Christmas, got a pair of M winter gloves, a scarf, and a winter hat [toboggan ;) ]. Also got a an old English D tie.
I got a signed UTL 1 Denard Jersey, its awesome. When he was being recruited I got his autograph its identical so that's good sign.
The only UM thing I got is a picture frame. I don't have a picture to put in it though.
Taking home a Dhani Jones Mott hospital fundraiser bowtie. Classy as fuck.
Michigan Santa hat, Michigan gloves, Michigan sled ornament, Michigan Jenga, and block M Jello Jiggler molds
Spartan daughter gave me a Michigan ball cap this year.
Michigan canopy for tailgating. I would use it for the Winter Classic but I'll be in my shanty instead.
I received an adidas climacool Michigan partial zip jacket along with a long sleeve climacool let's go blue shirt. I was happy with this.
Michigan "maize and blue don't run" shirt and a 60 oz glass pitcher with a block m on the side. Very nice haul. We are getting married in June so the holiday was light. Of course i got her an iPad... Ha!
Roll of M duct tape
M climalite hoody
M climalite t shirt
M pen set
Bacon's latest book
Related but not M - maize and blue sweats
My favorite gift of them all - a hand made block M from my six year old son.
I am a very loved individual despite my 2013 crankiness!
M duct tape is ridiculously awesome
I ended up with a framed photo of the 1998 Rose Bowl with the ticket stubs from the home games underneath. Inspired me to try to find my stubs from that season, but I could only find half of them. The rest are around somewhere...
My wife picked me up a mini brown jug replica... And my Sparty little brother (literally) got me a photo of Bo autograph by the man himself. Awesome day! Merry Christmas mgoblog community!
(see other thread). Do you have pics of yours and how did she come about it?
I got a pretty sweet Michigan cutting board made of wood from the state of Michigan. My Mom also made me some pretty awesome hand-painted Michigan coasters. Was a great Christmas, looking forward to relaxing with friends until I go back to work on the 2nd. Happy Holidays fellow MGoBloggers!
Not as much Michigan gear as normal, but my brother got me a Trey Burke Utah Jazz shirt that's pretty cool.
Last year almost every gift I got was somehow related to Michigan. This year? Not a single gift relating to Michigan. People probably don't know what is even left to buy me, that is Michigan related, that I don't have though.
My girlfriend made me Michigan cornhole boards! Made it! On her own. With custom bags. High quality shit!
Sounds like a keeper to me
Or it didn't happen. Just kidding that is awesome.
Dynasty wool banner.
nothing special just a mini helmet for the work desk. works for me!
That's pretty cool.
I got three Michigan t shirts, sweatpants and a calendar. It was a light year for Michigan gear.
It has a KSU helmet on the bottom LHS and a Michigan helmet on the bottom right side. We better win this game but if Gardner cannot play, it may be iffy at best. Win or lose I can just keep it as a memory to down season once we get to years of BCS bowls!
my wife got me a um flag that says "man cave" on it with a large block m in the center... it's not from Adidas or mden. this makes sense considering the fact that my B.A. and my M.A. (in progress) are from other academic institutions... she must have picked it up from Walmart.
My wife got me a nice framed poster that says "Man Cave" with a picture of the team huddled up in the middle.
And my dad sent me this vintage-style, 3/4 length sleeves Maize and Blue shirt. I'm wearing it today at work. I've never seen this style before but I love it.
Awesome recommendation. Functional and for a great cause! If we still could give points, I'd give you one.
(Edit: I did a Terrible job replying to the post I wanted to reply to. Fail. I was referring to the MGoBlue for Mott bracelets)
I've gotten some much stuff from my inlaws over the years, much of it stuff that I'd never use but they give it to me just because it has a block M on it. So I asked them to stop giving me Michigan stuff. I now buy all my Michigan gear myself.
One of my kids though asked for a block M style Michigan hat and an authentic Michigan basketball jersey with the #1. He didn't ask for it but he also got a pair of Michgan pajama pants. He wore his hat and jersey most of Christmas day.
...received a 2012 Sugar Bowl Champions hoodie and official DVD of that game.
M Football Tshirt - M Zip sweatshiert, new M ballcap and an M knit hat.
This one, in fact:
New cap from M Den. Super sharp!
New M grill cover.
Big House Tee.
M coffee mug with my name on it.
M grill spatula. ( with beer opener)
M foam brick for stress relief.
I was a very good boy this year!
Tickets to um Wisconsin bball game
Michigan bball sweatshirt
