New Year POSBANG thread
To the year 2013.......
Good - F'ing - BYE!!!!! Can't really remember a year I wanted to be over worse than this one, many reasons being related to Michigan sports. I mean there was just no damn sanctuary unless you were a big Men's Gymnastics fan. I mean really...
Football ........don't think that needs elaboration.
Hockey....... blew the 22 year NCAA tourney streak
Basketball.....blew the Big Ten title, great run in the tourney but came up short, missed on pretty much all of the 2014 recruits, get McGary back and then lose him to injury and not exactly off to a great start for this season.
May 2014 be BANGIN' for the Michigan faithful. Can't get much worse than this year (wood knocked on incesantly).
Happy New year everyone. May 2014 be wonderful for you and your family.
although it wasn't many. Wishing all the MGoBloggers a much better 2014. Happy New Year!
2013 RIP. Time of Death.....
Shitty sports year sure...but I recently got engaged so I think 2013 wasnt all that bad :)
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!!
I got a new baby boy, had the best financial year of my life and am building a new house, so I can't complain either! The year still sucked because the pregnancy was awful, we've been super busy, we won't actually move until 2014, and well, you know, sports and all, so 2013 can still eat me.
2014 - and I'm ready to get Banged!
Happy New Year (almost)!
Found a bottle of Lagavulin 12 year 2013 special release at my liquor store... I feel a little like 2013 is trying to say "sorry" to me.
A new bottle will be one of my first purchases of the New Year. Bottoms up.
Happy New Year!!
In 2013 we couldn't have nice things, in 2014 all I want is nice things!
I'd just be happy for a few more of these on the ole MGoBlog
Can't even remember the last time I saw Muppets. What was it? After the ND game?
Florida State basketball game (Nov. 22): 1-3-1 Comeback Muppets
Happy New Year to All! Go Blue!
+1 for your memory and an extra shot of bourbon tonight for how low our Muppets standards have dropped.
Oh man. Oh man oh man oh man! This damn year is almost over!
But let's give this posbang some substance.
How are you rocking in the New Year?
For me, I think it's just gonna be me and my dad relaxing at the house. Friends want to go downtown, so that might be in the cards.
I approve of this message.
Goodbye Mack Brown
Happy Trails 2013
Well I sure hope Michigan Football does better next year
How about a World Series, Stanley cup, or fuck it, even a Super Bowl in 14?
Who's with me?
Lacey Chabert will get an upvote from me whether it's in a posbang thread or not.
She is one fine woman!
No UM titles of any kind?
Farewell Indeed 2013.
Get the fuck outta here, 2013.
door hit ya in the ass.
I'm prepared to do 2014 strong. Won't take much to surpass 2013, and that's not even takin Michigan into account.
God bless you, brother
You're going to need an estrogen shield for that much exposure in such a short period of time. I recommend purchasing EstroStop® Plus. They're available at Home Depot, Lowe's, and Walgreen's.
next year will be better. Keep the faith.
2014 WILL BE BETTER FOR THE MAIZE AND BLUE!
Such an underrated piece of advice
I started my December 31st by cleaning off the driveway and the cars, and supposedly that's how I will be spending my January 1st and 2nd if the forecast holds. So, while the roads are less crappy and there is time, I shall be running out to get some supplies as well as some New Year's drinkables for the celebration later.
Other than that, not much in the way of organized plans today - the kids are watching films in one room, my wife is deep into "Sons Of Anarchy" and "Fringe" on my iPad and here I am, on MGoBlog. That sort of scene materializes a lot around here, although we do find the time to do family things as well.
Go Blue, folks and here's to a brighter 2014. *raises coffee, as it is all he has right now*
Was the year of Trey Burke, here's to 2014 being the year of devin Gardner or some other Michigan football player! As my boy Dr. Dre once said....2013 CAN EAT A FAT DIIIIIIIIIICCCKKKK, YEEEEEAH! Happy New Year All!
Ready for 2014. Going to start the year off right with a Wings win at the Big House!
.....at least someone will be winning there....
I believe you are mistaken, kind sir--Anaheim is not participating in that sporting event.
There are still 13 hours and 45 minutes left.
Anything can happen.
YOU SHUT YOUR MOUTH MAGNUS
Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind?
In 2013's case - absolutely. Auld Lang Syne fellow Wolverine faithfull!!!
May it be full of winning!
as long as you're not talking about this kind of winning
The bottle of Glenlivet is calling my name. I might have to make my friend be hungover for his yearly trip to the Childrens Museum with his family.
May everyone's 2014 be far better than their 2013, especially the football team. Have a safe and happy New Years everyone! If you are going out, be safe, and get a designated driver!
2014 here we come....
is that Brady Hoke (or "Brainy Hulk" as my son calls him) has at least one moment like that
It is already 2014 in some parts of the world. The clock is striking midnight somewhere every 60 minutes. If you aren't drunk yet, you're slacking!
or you're at work for no good reason.
Good point. Someone check if Michigan has won any national championships in the Eastern world yet today.
Just when I finally got used to writing out 2013, too. The cycle continues
May this pos bang not be the only banging we all do today!
I'm going to headbang to the B-52's, so there's a whole lot left for me to do.
As a CFB fan, I am very excite!
Go blue! Go 2014!
screw you 2013, here's to a pleasant 2014
gotta bit o' drivin' to do today. Hoping the weather stays tame.
Definitely not mourning the passing of 2013. Good things on the horizon!
Stay the course the darkest times have passed! I hope.
Here's to a great year next year in all things everywhere.
can that 4 just kick that 3 guy's ass already!? he has been a dick all year!
By the look of things, that "1" was probably more of a dick but I see your point.
Am I too late for the posbang?
I raise my glass to you 2014, may you make us forget 2013 was so worthless!!
I hope you all have a great 2014!!
Here's to 2014. Hope we and the coaches learned a few things from this year, don't repeat some of the same mistakes, and that lucky breaks, the law of averages, and cosmic justice turn solidly in Michigan's favor next year.
Happy new year! Hopefully start out with a bang against minny on Thursday.
Happy new year. Have great celebrations tonight. May everyone have a happy, healthy, and successful 2014 year.
May 2014 bring peace to all ACLs, healing to all turf toes, and any such sundry ailments that you, your loved ones, or members of your beloved sports teams may be suffering.
2013 has been truly awful, both personally (health issues) and fanwise (UM, need I say more?). I will be spending new year's with the wife hopefully seeing Anchorman 2 after an afternoon doctor's visit that will hopefully not be another soul dong punch but instead provide some hope and solace. May your new year's be a good one. Rock on Blue!
Close the books on 2013. It was a rough one.
I'm here for the gang(pos)bang...
Goodbye 2013 and please take "bend but don't break" and Al with you.
2013 was lamentable from sports perspective for nearly all of us, and for many of us on other levels. But it's almost in our rearview mirror.
So here's to a terrific 2014, for each and every one of you - even the ones of you that annoy me from time-to-time. And be safe out there tonight folks!
Dennis Norfleet approves 2013 being over.
Basketball team made the finals in what is likely to be the greatest run any of us ever see that team make (expectations vs. results). The football season sucked and the hockey team is kind of back to life but I won't say 2013 sucked all the way through. That Kansas game was a once-in-a-lifer for us.
Here's to hockey getting back on track and football figuring out football. Go 2014
How about all the commitments that the football and men's basketball programs (not to mention other sports) got in 2013—in reverse chronological order:
- Erik Swenson
- DJ Wilson (hoops)
- Kameron Chatman (hoops)
- Tyree Kinnel
- Shaun Crawford
- Jared Wangler
- Damien Harris
- Noah Furbush
- Brandon Watson
- Freddy Canteen
- Jon Runyan Jr.
- Andrew David
- Chase Winovich
- Jabrill Peppers
- Lawrence Marshall
- Juwann Bushell-Beatty
- Maruice Ways
- Ian Bunting
- Drake Harris
- Brady Pallante
- Ricky Doyle (hoops)
- Mason Cole
- Bryan Mone
- Wilton Speight
- Derrick Green
- JJ McGrath
- Reon Dawson
- Dan Samuelson
That's a pretty good year of recruiting.
Two National Championships (albeit in sports very few of us have ever been to)
POSBANG threads and snowflake threads are the dumbest shit on this site.
I think we should have a thread called "Posbang Thread: Snowflakes" where we discuss how the most recent posbang went
Speak for yourself Mr. Dudeness. I would take a coaching snowflake thread over 45 melt down/fire Al Borges/I feel the need to express my opinion because it is so wonderful and correct threads after every game.
While posbang threads are pointless. They do help morale. Something we missed a lot this year.
Morale is a word used by the weak.
Happy New Year everybody!
Clients are too damn demanding.
Is it bad that I don't even feel like going out or doing anything tonight?
You want me to do things to you like the sun and the moon?
The end of this year calls for a celebration!
Go Wings, Go Blue... Happy New Year! Go screw yourself, 2013.
Hey everybody it's Brandon. Brandon Weedon of your Cleveland Browns. I just wanted to say Happy Fourth of July everybody! Woo-woo I just love fireworks!
Maybe I'm wrong, but I feel like that will be what Drew Dileo looks like at the age of 35.
Dileo doesn't have that much hair now...
That is all.
it cost points to neg these days!
Bring on the new year!
Good riddance 2013, hello 2014!!!
I wish all of you the blessing of well functioning bowels in the coming year, as there is little as satisfying as a good movement.
Also, Go Blue!
Good riddance 2013. Worst year of my life and M sports failures were just the sprinkles on a dog-shit of a year. Cheers to a much much better 2014 for all.
I never like to wish time away because it is truly a blessing, and goes by too fast as it is.
However, I am really looking forward to 2014, and all that lay in store in the New Year.
No matter how dire the sports situation gets in football, there is always plenty of excellence to point to within the University of Michigan. For that, I am always thankful.
Also, I am thankful for this blog and all of your insightful comments, though I may not agree with all of them. It has really helped me keep my sanity throughout this football season.
Happy New Year to all!
Glad you posted this so I don't have to now.
There's way too much red in the Big House for my liking, but I guess I'll deal with it since it's for the Wings.
And to all a Go Blue 2014.
....seeeeeeeee ya! Hot tub!"
That's the hardest working man in show business!
Gonna get in the hot tub!
play for a National Championship in 2013 but yes I mostly agree with everyone..2013 can please get the hell out of here
Oh 2013. Although I started a new job and got my masters this year, you still suck because of everything related to Michigan sports. Go Blue in 2014!!
Happy New Year, MGoFriends. I hope you all have fun tonight and stay safe.
2014 can't be any worse, right?
A UM great. Very sad.... this has to be one of the worst two months in MIchigan Athletics. Screw 2013.
Happy New Year to all and Go Blue tomorrow at the Big House!
Mostly, 2013 turned out to be a reasonably good year for me. M Basketball kept me going early in the year when things at work were looking pretty bleak. My daughter did very well in her vocal music competitions, my son started charting his own path, my wife found fulfillment as a volunteer, and business picked up for me by the end of the year.
I realize I am blessed in more ways than I can count. So, I'll ring in 2014 with hope for better days for myself, my family, my community and - somewhere down the list - for U-M.
Go Blue. Happy New Year.
Happy New Year! The wheel of life ever turns and it is AWESOME!
along with the 20 lbs I lost!
Happy New Year to all 2013 survivors. Moving on to 2014.
I could use me some posbang to get over this train wreck of a football season.
See ya 2013. i am ready to welcome 2014 and better days.
Here's to getting to 100 points hopefully in 2014!
I am posting this from my underground bunker. Just to be safe, I am not coming out until every time zone has passed into 2014. Not taking any chances, as 2013 was just too scary of a bitch to mess with.
Happy New Year everyone, and Go Blue! Here's to a better year . . .
Downtown Las Vegas tonight! Should be a great end to a terrible year (Michigan sport wise). Otherwise, 2013 was amazing. Bought a house, a car, had twins, went to some great places, spent time with the family. Here's to 2014 being just as amazing.
Got to watch Brittany Spears opening night in vegas (my wife's dream come true). I find that if you drink enough and go with the flow just about anything can be amazing.
I did go heavy on michigan on the money line and Anderson Silva so that sucked!
have fun brother. I wish I could have stayed to see J. Cole tonight.
So, you're saying the dong punches end at midnight? Well then, Happy Fucking New Year to all!!
Bring on 2014! Happy New Year MGoBrothers and MGoSisters!
Happy new year everyone.
Happy New Year Mgofolks!
Woke up just in time to watch football.
Looking forward to watching the Alumi game today and 2014.
I got married ten years ago today at the age of 19. Three weeks later I was in Iraq for a 13 month deployment!
Congrats and Thank You.
Here's to 2013 and Ace Williams royally fucking off!!! Whooo!!! Kate Upton!!! Peppers!!! 2014!!! AAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!!111!11!
Happy New Year everyone!!!
Once my last bite of dinner goes down the drinking begins!!!!
I hit 100 Mgo points...
Happy New Year everyone!
Be safe out there.
(That should probably be in the reverse order). So I am excited for a happy and healthy 2014!
starting with the high school all star games. Looking forward to seeing all the incoming freshman for the first time with Jabrill being a the top of the list. I hope they do us proud.
Happy New Year to everyone!
May 2014 be as great as the first three months of 2013 (minus the South Carolina game and the Penn State game)
2013 = Endless Monkey Rodeo.
Hope everyone has a great New Year (be safe tonight). Glad 2013 is over, no need to recap UM athletic struggles. It's high time we get, and create, some breaks. Best wishes to all.
Zoltan, the Space Emporer is punting in the playoffs again, signed today by Cincinnati. The inevitable bad news is that it will only be for 1 game as my Bengals are undoubtedly destined to lose. WOO HOO.
And for 2014...!
