spoiler alert: i linked this
Had to throw in the disclaimer, but I must admit the show is pretty funny. I will watch it with the wife if there are no other options.
Man card revoked
I watch the Bachelor with my wife and I like it. I have the balls to admit it. Glee, though? Dude...
Absolutely not. You cannot watch some shitfest like the Bachelor then try and dog another fool for watching a slightly less shitty shitfest like Glee. "Reality" shows are the most wretched filth on television. And I don't mean filth in any moral sense. They are just absolute dreck.
My wife loves the Bachelor, so it is required viewing. Happy wife, happy life.
Here is the key for men/sports fans to watching the Bachelor: Realize that what it actually is is a tournament. Just like the NCAA Big Dance. So if you have to watch it, turn it into a sporting event.
So what I do after the second episode is to create a mental bracket of the Elite Eight, the Final Four, the Final, and the winner. I have my wife do the same thing.
It makes watching it much more interesting. When Emily dumped (Shawn?) early, we let out a loud groan as if Kentucky had lost in the first round.
You've got to check out Duck Dynasty. Great show.
I will alert my husband, who is close to getting me addicted to "Gallery Girls"
This is a word I should use more often.
Does brass balls = no brains?
Because admitting something like that outside of your "group session" seems a whole lot more like the latter to me? But maybe that's just me.
To inform Shane Morris...he tweeted the same info, and seems to like Glee too.
Shane is still in high school.
While I do tend to agree with man card being revoked since this is a little strange, the girlfriend always gives me the sad puppy eyes when she wants me to watch one of her girly shows.
Don't underestimate the power of the sad puppy eyes. Kills me every time.
Shorts Huma lupa licious. It's an awesome beer and I suggest drinking it while smoking a nice cigar. Amazing.
I recently went back to Michigan last week and had this at the Bells Brewery in Kzoo. Hops like whoa, but it went down quickly!
"No other options" meaning that your cable inexplicably loses all channels except the Glee one and you break all of your limbs, rendering yourself incapable of doing anything but watch television?
You do realize that there was a Thursday night NFL game right?
Yes. I was watching the bears game but my wife yelled at me to come watch this one-liner from Glee. I thought it was awesome so I posted it here.
Bears at Green Bay
Rutgers at South Florida.
US Open replays
Hell, even watching Tigers / White Sox rain delay filler on FSD would be better.
Go watch Hardcore Pawn!
And "my friend" yells at video games so much that his neighbor thinks he's filming porn.
What kind of porn?
Nice Nick Swardson reference!!
Something tells me that porn with only one voice in it - a guy's voice - might not sell very well. Your neighbor really needs to brush up on his understanding of porn markets.
Yea, Corbin Fisher's already got that market cornered.
(should be obvious, but don't come cryin to me if you google that at work!)
My wife is an avid Glee fan and occasionally I catch a scene or two
Mgoblog is a caring, non-judgemental community. You can tell us all about your Season One DVD Boxed Set that you got Jane Lynch to autograph. We accept you for who you are, ya musical loving freak.
We watch it on the west coast, and 'my wife' has to check mgoblog every hour. So thanks for ruining the best hour of her week.
Next thread: Better quarterback...Shoelace or Finn?
And can we get a UFR on some of these dance numbers?
What's this Glee you speak of?
that you like Glee.
If Shane Morris is a Glee fan, then it is fine for men to be Glee fans
they must know shane morris is a huge fan..
is EXACTLY what I was expecting. Seriously, now, you can't put this line:
My wife is an avid Glee fan and occasionally I catch a scene or two
in a post and expect us to just go with it.
MWIAAGFAOICASOT. My wife is an avid Glee fan and occasionally I catch a scene or two
MTs from Michigan have been on Glee. Our department is Top 3, no joke.
One of the main charcters went to U of M - so aren't Glee references the same as Kate Upton references now?
And yes, an ex got me into the show and it's funny, nothing to be embarassed about. Also, that whole "man card" thing came from a Miller Lite commercial. Anything representing watered down beer does not represent masculinity.
Like most Chinese beers, there's not enough malt and they don't do much more than wave a handful of hops in its general direction.
I do get a good laugh out of the idea that drinking Miller Lite has anything to do with manliness.
If you want water, drink water.
If you want beer, drink beer.
Miller lite is awful, even for lite beer. I have to imagine it tastes worse than piss.
There is nothing communistic about hating on a shitty lite beer that is probably the worst of lite beers.
for beer snobish comments. Sad but true reality - American lite beer is 99% pee
Edit: Oops - forgot I can't upvote until October. Ha. Well, would if I could, check's in the mail..
If I could get you an early return ticket without too much work, I would. This is a perfect example of how to get yourself out of Bolivian and back home. Good stuff.
the "prophet" is a kind prophet.. I thank thee.
Rather much unlike James Earl Jones in Conan the Barbarian, who was a mean prophet...
Also, that whole "man card" thing came from a Miller Lite commercial.
It's been around longer than that.
Hey guys, LOOK! This guy has a wife!
COugh CouGH *beard* COUGH!
My wife . . . has never watched Glee. Good wife, she is. FTR/FTW, neither have I.
I am preparing to watch "Pineapple Express." As soon as I post this.
was invited to a school musical a few years ago.
His comment? "Why would I want to go? I already know what's going to happen: they're going to sing, they're going to dance, they're going to talk a lot. Why would I want to go?"
You could make a similar argument about a football game: "They're going to run, they're going to pass, they're going to tackle a lot.*"
*GERG-coached teams excepted
If you ever again use a quote or plot line from Glee or any similar show as the basis for a thread I will campaign the mods so fucking hard to get you bolivian-ed. Regardless of the context, there's a point where certain boundaries, most especially during the season, should not be crossed. And you sir, have just crossed one of those boundaries. I'm sure it's a fine show, and I'm sure it was a humorous line, especially for U of M fans, but please keep this blog sacred by keeping politics, religion, RCMB/MLive type antics and Glee out of it.
This entire thread is spot on -- except for the fellows who are to ardent in their criticism of Glee. It's entirely plausible that the OP occasionally catches "glimpses" of this mysterious, albeit popular, woman-oriented show, and he happened to see a Michigan/Ohio reference when passing through the tv room to grab a beer. Entirely plausible. I suspect he even had a Milwaukee or a Rigid Sawsall in his hand as he paused between jobs, nodding proudly at his wife's feminine interest in a show about a group of misfit kids kicking out the showtunes on the big stage. All good!

Sounds like you know a little bit about Glee, Marvin... maybe a bit TOO much...
i like my porter cable, though. Dewalt ftw. Just can't justify the cost being a nurse, not a contractor.
pound you in the ass nightly?
WTF, man? I'll chalk this one up to you having had a few too many in conjunction with the Thursday night football/drinking thread.
The Jane Lynch ad was on the left of my screen and she had a big grin in the pic advertising some type of online college...she approves of this thread.
I don't think I've ever seen that ad.
That's what happens when someone posts a Glee thread here...Google thinks we'd like Jane Lynch ads. Next up handbag and Crystal Light ads...
I just wanted to acknowledge that you sir (5th and long) are one of my favorite new poster's on the board. Glad to have you here.
Ummm...it takes more than one thread on a certain topic in order to trip our set level for Google AdChoices (so that you don't end up with a million Ohio State and MSU ads all the time). So you shouldn't be getting Jane Lynch ads coming up unless...
Ummmm, yeah Seth...I mean this is what I actually saw. The Jane Lynch thing was totally a photoshop...yeah.
well i went searching for old JeepinBen articles for dear diary and now all I'm getting is Jeep commercials. Go away Jeep -- I just bought a new Subaru (from Diallo Johnson's mom--true story).
Basically Girl 1 says to Girl 2, "This is a lot different from what you're used to back in Iowa." Girl 2 responds, "I'm not from Iowa, I'm from Ohio." Girl 1 quips, "Oh...that's even worse."
The conversation was something along those lines.
Only 16 points and even I know better than use the words "Glee" and "Awesome" together on this board.
Maybe some Kate to help put the MGoBlog universe back into balance...
She's awesome. Glee is one of the many feelings I get when I see her.
Is that better?
without watching it? I think you can.
My wife watches Gossip Girl. I usually chill on the couch and blog during this time. Sometimes I go and make a sandwich. I ate 40 McNuggets on a dare one time. Did you guys hear Red Lobster All-You-Can-Eat Shrimp is back!?!???
when the 'all you cab eat' crab legs are back.
I think... I mean, that sounds gay. I just want you to know this is, like, the first conversation of, like, three conversations that leads to you being gay. Like, there's this and then in a year it's like, "Oh, you know, I'm kinda gonna want to get back out there, but I think I like guys," and then there's the big, "Oh, I'm... I'm... I'm a gay guy now."

(points return at this same time tomorrow)
to cover ohio as well as EL.
I've seen probably 1 minute and 12 seconds of a Glee episode. I wanted to shoot myself in the face.
And to the OP...you do realize there were two football games on last night right? Pro and college. No excuses.
"Awesome line about Michigan and ohio in Glee "
How can anything be awesome on that show? The commercials alone make me want to vomit..
Some posters protest too much, methinks.
You do know that "protests" doesn't mean what you think it means, right? Protest had a completely different meaning in Shakespeare's era, and in the context of Hamlet it has nothing to do with someone complaining about something...
See mom, majoring in English did eventually come in handy!
I apologize to those readers of MGoBlog from Shakespeare's era for any confusion I may have caused.
Why didn't you tell all of us what the term meant at the time? No one likes a tease... at least when it comes to definitions.
I believe, at least in the way it's used in that line in Hamlet, it means to vow or to promise .
For a post that is going to get over 100 responses.
There is a glee forum with a woman being judged for her husband watching football and her occasionally catching a play or two
Double on a glee thread. Ugh
A friend of mine from HS (and at UM) married the producer of that show (also a UM grad), so thats likely why we're seeing these references.
Still doesn't make me want to watch it, however..... but hey, its just not my bag, baby.
file my invisible Glee DVD over there on the shelf next to my invisible Swedish Penis Pump.
...for what they did to Don't Stop Believin. It was an alright song before, and then they made a really shitty cover of it which eventually eclipsed the Journey version in popularity and seared itself into my brain, never to be dislodged or redeemed.
Also, the commercials for it are simply appalling.
I've never heard the cover, and now I'll make sure I always avoid the cover.
It's about how you spend your precious time as a collection of (mostly) coherent molecules. I avoid watch anything that features:
- people who in no way resemble a normal group of people
- people doing things that in no way are what people normally do
- overt manipulation of the viewer's concept of what consititutes 'desireable'
- people collected for purposes of artificial games or public humiliation
While I am a sucker for action movies (violates the first two groundrules), overall, I'd have to say I'm pretty boring. But, at least I retain my self-esteem.
Try every form of entertainment, electronic or otherwise out there. Heck, sports would violate most of your rules.
I like Glee. So what of it? I am married and we enjoy watching the show. I was a former band and theater geek in high school.
I have not watched this episode yet because I was recording it on my DVR while I was watching the Bears/Packers game. Woodson's comments after the game on Cutler were fricken hilarious.
You may wanna peep out, little shop of horrors.
Yeah the jock/bro mentality is overwhelming in here. Per gaming with pat is proof. I find those videos moronic.
Next thing you know, someone will ask whether there'd been mass awareness of a certain avian variety.
are "Glee Live Blog" posts in MGoBlog future?
Last night was the first time I have ever had to watch glee. My girlfriend is a huge fan...she tried selling the idea to me like "Kate Hudson is really hot, you like her. She strips down in the show". I kept sneaking off to the "bathroom" to take a "shit" and really all I was doing is watching the bears vs packers game in the next room. I did however find the line pretty funny when I saw it. Glee is truly a terrible show.
I'm ashamed to admit that I know this, but there was an episode years ago where in the locker room you could clearly see a sign that said "Those who stay will be champions." There's definitely a Michigan fan or two on the crew.
My gf loves it, I reluctantly watch it. I have been known to watch Dance Moms too. Shit happens.
Bad title on this thread.
"Guys who think life is better being married. Guess again."
Could one of the mods help make the correction?
next time admit "NOTHING". This shall pass - sometime in mid November. Just change your avatar and the account name, you'll be fine.
I gave "Glee" a shot because my daughter is a MT and we'd watch it together. However I banned it when I realized it is mostly just child pornography with singing. The only thing that saves it from complete shame is the porn actors are actually about 25 years old as they try to portray themselves at 17.
You and I must have different definitions of porn...
God forbid they don't demonize the glbt community like the homophobic religious right...
