Well today might as well be a write-off.
Can't help but think this one goes our way by a couple scores. Am I drinking too much Kool-Aid?
It's a (home) office day for me; definitely distracted. Damn it!
I think you're drinking an appropriate amount of kool-aid.
I'm sitting in taxation of property class... An I'm doing nothing but drinking the Kool Aid! Go Blue! Beat the Irish.
If we contain DeVaris Daniels and hold down big plays, we should be fine. Notre Dame doesn't actually have that many ways to hurt us on offense.
is going to be a fun day.
...hopping on plane in a few hours and flying out to Michigan for the game...can't wait to get to Ann Arbor! Go Blue!
In class, day dreaming about tommorow.
Well played, lawyer!
Did you expand the space under your desk to accompany a napping quarters?
The questions are how much is your hourly rate and who is getting billed?
is great about being a lawyer. Everything about the job is annoying. I am always annoyed so it takes absolutely no effort to conjure up the look of complete annoyance. Somebody just walked by my office as I am typing this, I just shuffled through a bunch of papers, let out a small grunt and said "son of a bitch" under my breath but loud enough to be heard. They completely think I am going all lawyer on someone when really I am typing this post! It is great.
However pretending gets me nowhere, because it's hard to make navier-stokes look like anything but, well, math.
I am sort of in the same boat admittedly - I am physically at work, but that's about all of me that is here at the moment. Definitely far too excited about tomorrow to do much but peruse the blog and wait impatiently here for the next five hours or so.
There is the MGoPatio event tonight, of course, and I plan on going, so that should help make this hopefully a weekend to remember in Ann Arbor. I was going to bring the wife, but she has opted for a football-free evening.
Go Blue, and beat the FigThing Chickens!
Listened to coach Hoke on DP. Was very calm, cool and collected. Almost had me relaxed thinking about the game. It lasted maybe five minutes(me being calm and maybe the interview).
was interviewing the game day producer. The guy said Corso was gonna use a live animal with his pick and that it would "really stir the crowd up". I'm thinking its a chicken.
That's been me all day. I've been reading every ESPN, CBS Sports articles and watching a ton of ND-Michigan clips as well as footage from last week. I don't think I'm ready for tomorrow yet!
I'm worried about: 1) our safeties, 2) no inside push from our interior OL, 3) Gardner INT's and assorted wasteful INC's, 4) Rees not throwing INT's, 5) DeVaris Daniels. Other than that, I'm Kool and the Gang.
I've been at work for three hours and have accomplished nothing. Yup, it's a Friday before a big game.
I'm doing it, still in my bathrobe in my office, working (er, I'm in my office at least) from home. It's glorious. I have lunch left overs from yesterday to get me through, and I'm watching ND footage...
Lets Go Blue.
Has never felt so far away. Go Blue! Beat the KFC (Kelly's Fig-thing Chickens)!
It's football day in the office to celebrate the opening week of the NFL season, so everyone is representing their pro teams. Naturally I'm rocking my Chad Henne circa 2006 jersey. GO BLUE
IS IT SATURDAY YET
every day im on MGoBlog as making me even more productive at my office! haha
Colleagues at work today asked about ND vs Michigan and I gave them a good lecture on how ND are chicken.
My wonderful boss agreed to let me get off work early to make the drive to AA.
I saw this thread, and then slowly looked around me. Yes...Yes it would appear I am at work.
Productivity has taken a nose dive today.
I was not in the office yesterday (Shanah Tovah everyone!) and so today's a catch up day, until I drive in the car and head to Ann Arbor. Should be a good one tomorrow.
What posbangs have become? Well shit...I'm in!
I'm pretty excited about tomorrow. IMHO we will win. My dreams are that we crush them like we did when Brady Quinn cried. That would be glorious. Reality is more like a comfortable 2 score victory.
day before the ND game and i'm hungover. nothing is getting done today
After the birth of my first baby a week ago, I'm on an 8 week parental leave (it's not just for mom's anymore!). So I am not at work and have plenty of time to think about the game.
I have a hard time seeing ND winning or even keeping this game close. Last season, they were never really impressive and just had every bounce go their way. Without Denard's turnover fest, they don't win last year's game. I think this time around, we show the Irish what should've happened in 2012 in impressive fashion. To put a spin on Lee Corso's saying, "Michigan, but NOT as close as the experts think."
I usually wait until game day before hanging the "M" flag. Hell''s bells, it's UTL. The flag is flying and I am daydreaming. The work will still be there Monday.
Just finished a corporate regulatory survey. It was kind of like a colonic with a firehose. Glad to have it over. Now I'm just going to try to avoid love bugs on my way down south for some gator hunting. I hope to bag one tonight so that I don't have to go back out tomorrow and miss the game.
of MGoBlog at break and lunch intervals, like a slow drip. The floodgates of joy open tomorrow evening! Go Blue!
feels like 2 days away still. I quit working, stay at hoke dad, diapers all day 75 out today and a park full of moms flirting while I shoot them down. why would I ever leave a doctor for an unemployed depressed mom? its football time
see I have hoke in my thoughts I guess
Hoke came in with ample opportunity to succeed or fail. He didn't have typical Michigan talent, he was likely the 2nd or 3rd option for most of the fanbase, many didn't even want to see the former coach go, and he'd never coached a top tier program. Since that time he has said all the right things and said them honestly. ie- he doesn't wear red becuse he hates Ohio while his counterpart doesn't allow blue at practice because he likes his own hype. Hoke has recruited well and reestablished who we are. I always thought 2014 or 2015 was when our time would begin. I was wrong. The time to win (writ large) is now. I think Hoke will start tomorrow night.
Kind of bizarre that we're playing last year's BCS-runner up who is #14 this year and probably 90+% of picks are going our way. There's a strange air of confidence that Michigan will win. I don't know if this means victory or certain doom, but I too have a strange feeling that Michigan is just the better team despite their world-devouring D-line
We're doing a tailgate this afternoon starting at 1:30. Company providing food and beer. Love this job.
Some stuff for Teach for America. Anyone have any experience with the program?
there is some serious cool-aid in circulation and yes, this fan base in drinking a little too much of this. Michigan is better. That much is certain. But a beat down of Central Michigan does not a national champion make. This is going to be a close game against 2 pretty evenly matched teams.
the guinness book of world records people are on hand.
Looking forward to seeing the world's largest CHICKEN dance being performed as the sad Domers leave our stadium with a loss.
Nope, I am not a fan of the dance, but the idea does make me chuckle.
well fuck you guys. im NOT at work. instead im having beer and lunch at arbor brewing.
I am drinking beer and on a whale watching tour. Getting married at 5pm tomorrow. Reception will end jussssst before kickoff.
Well, congratulations on the impending marriage! Hopefully, you do get to catch the game as well. Double bonus, right?
Today I study, nap, exercise, then study more. Tomorrow I sequester myself in the library, far away from my dreaded laptop, in order to get work done during the day. Then it's on at night.
I've been looking at my pics and videos from the first UTL and I'm so nostalgic right now! Graduating sucks haha but here, enjoy them if you wanted to see what campus was like all day for the first UTL! Especially watch the Denard TD video at the end, it's worth it. http://flic.kr/s/aHsjw1eoAc
Friday's are worthless work days.
Anyway, I'm nervous about the game although I'm confident at the same time. This would be a big win. I could spring us to a 10, 11 or dare I say 12 win season. I want a dominant win really, really bad. I think it could actually happen.
I don't know what to do with my hands?!?!?!
I'm at work for 2 more hours, thankfully I'm working from home today. I gotta work 5-10pm tomorrow night too, but you can bet I'll have the game on here all the same. Majority of the work is just gonna be uploading game film to espn/cbs sports anyway...
