I respond with a quote from Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) in The Shawshank Redemption:
Remember, Red, hope is a good thing--maybe the best of things. And no good thing ever dies.
is a setup
for a comeback.
See you in Zihuatenejo
has been a setup
for bad cornerbacks.
...isn't all that optimistic...but at least it has some fight in it regarding hope....
THE PROMISE OF AUTUMN
The slate is clean. There are no wins, no losses, only a green field in an amazing new stadium and 12 dates on the calendar.
Call me a fool, but as far as I'm concerned the glass starts completely full.
"Where we're going, we don't need cornerbacks."
I see someone else watched BttF2 on Saturday as well.
That made me laugh audibly. (I hate lol) I'm a sucker for BTTF jokes.
I was definitely thinking "many-dreaded" referred to Denard's hair.
I assumed that was a primary reason, although there are lots of be-dreaded young men on this team. Each of them is a special flower waiting to kick some dog while its on the ground on Saturday.
I have a feeling by the end of September the tagline will be replaced with "Hope is many dreaded things" namely: Tay, Denard, V Smith, Furman, Stokes (?), Gallon, Floyd, etc
Everybody shift to dreads.
kenny powers is switching to corn rows so why not
Or you could go ALL IN and dread your Mstache
The probably unintended subtle dig at Purdue's self-important head coach. (We could change it to "Hope dreads many things" after that game comes and goes.)
And kept thinking about Red's line to Andy crawling through a river of shit and coming out clean on the other side. Think this is how RR will feel after the media shit storm he went through and how they'll treat him after the many many wins coming, starting with this year.
"Unless you're talking about Danny Hope. That dude's a douchebag."
hopefully this year we will be gettin busy livin.
I hope to just be "gettin' busy" this year.
IMO the slogan for this week should be "Michigan Football will Walk Again". Here's to the Mealer Family!
My only problem with that is the use of the future tense. We're walking now.
Are you sure you aren't the negative one? Think hairstyle when you read "many-dreaded thing."
a quote from Red from Shawshank Redemption: "Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a man insane."
I started a similar thread hoping to get rid of the emo-ness last week.
I am filled with hope for Saturday.
And the Saturday after that......
I try not to engage in hope. Seems it's followed by disappointment more often than not.
