Football Display Case
i find this extremely interesting
i may have altered the title
i thought this was america
like I said on twitter: that was almost as intense as Iowa NIT games
...talks about how UConn hasn't been in contact and how they're out. (HT: UMHoops)
Jalen, Burke, and Simmons.
Mike Hart the heavy favorite in the trolling competition
just what the Pistons need: a third string center. Joe Dumars was replaced by a mean ol' alien a few years back you guys.
this would be a close approximation of hypothetical graduation speech
no you guys they're just super pumped about COLLLLLLLLLLLLEGE
not a surprise
premature congrats. One thing we can be sure of: he'll take fewer asinine penalties than Abdelkader
Thanks to ugly transitions between Fulmer/Kiffin/Dooley/Davis, Tennessee is on the edge of APR penalties for football.
i approve of this message
Yeah, that played a role in my final decision to wear the green shirt. I live in Phoenix, AZ so pretty much nobody down here even realizes MSU exists. But I still feel guilty and shame and have an overwhelming desire to set furniture on fire.
The swag is back.
That's because Domino's guarantees delivery in 30 minutes or less.
Sorry, couldn't resist
Actually, somewhere I read that there are more MSU grads in Chicago than there are in any city in Michigan.
I don't have anything green and my only red shirts are Red Wings. My objection to green is founded in both my hatred for MSU and Notre Dame.
Like some others here, I've never gotten into St. Patty's Day. Seems too close to celebrating Notre Dame for my taste. I went to a Catholic high school in Michigan and there were lots of people who were fans of ND that had no connection to the school whatsoever. To me, St. Patty's Day seems like a holiday that non-Irish use as an excuse to get black out on a random day in March.
Do you feel bad using that green stuff? Or do you buy everything with quarters and dimes? Sometimes you have to let the silly stuff go.
I wear green because, well $&*# Sparty
I'll wear red or scarlet or gray because, well $&*# the Bucks.
I'm not going to let them control what I wear and where I wear it. They can have the inferiority complex.
Best day of the year
Janeane Garofalo (Film Actors Guild): "As actors it is our responsibility to read the newspaper, and then say what we read on television like it's our opinion"
uh...no. That seems a little immature not gonna lie.
So is Brady Hoke immature for not wearing red?
To a degree? Yes.
Of course, he probably does it to feed red meat to the people that are enamored with such immaturiy.
People look at Brady Hoke.
....Hoke doesn't wear red is because it accidentally turned all of his underwear pink in the wash. Clearly he got off to a rough start as a young man at Ball State.
When I get dressed in the morning, I take a picture of my outfit in the mirror and forward it to a Michigan Man Tribunal of Stan Edwards, Braylon Edwards, Rick Leach, and Jay Feeley for approval before venturing out my door.
I hate St. Patrick's Day. My typical thought: "Wait. You're a quarter Irish too?! That is amazing. And yes, it does give the right to be a drunken asshole all day long."

lay off, bucko--I'm half-Irish!

Still waiting on backup.
St. Paddy's day has noting to do with MSU.
Black. As in out.
But I do own one green shirt that I purchased last year for StPD, so I'll be wearing that this weekend.
I have a Fandom Endurance III merit badge
But then again, I plan on doing a truck-load of homework on Saturday, and, ahem, not remembering if I felt guilty about the green clothes on Sunday.
St. Patrick's day is when you can get drunk in the AM and act like a drunken idiot without getting (overly) judged. Wearing Sparty colors for that day seems very appropriate.
Lets change Derek Green's name to Derek Maize n' Blue.
This son of the ould sod (Shaw and Callahan) reminds you that the Irish saved civilization long before Sparty started destroying furniture.
This OP is pathetic. I don't care how old you are. Grow the hell up.
Lighten up brother and realize that everything doesn't have to be serious. Life - It's supposed to be fun. If the post wasn't fun for you, so be it, but it was interesting for enough people that I've enjoyed reading through the responses.
From you, in the Moderation Sticky Thread: " Keep up the good work; this is getting extremely childish around here."
You've also bitched other times about the number of "silly threads" on here.
So maybe you should decide what stance you're gonna take before telling people to "Lighten up, it's a slow news day"
If you're doing nothing, how do you know when you're finished?
StraightDave owes me a steak dinner
What's funny is you felt the subject was serious enough to actually post about. So, yeah have some fun. Wear some color in your life. And don't post it when you do.
Class of '97. Missed it by that much.
I'm a pretty ardent environmentalist - which is often being associatwd with being green. I'm also quite proud of my irish heritage - also often associated with the color green.
Neither of those lessens the fact that I bleed blue and am very proud of my Michigan degree and being part of a Uniersity that has accomplished and continues to accomplish so much on the athletic field and across a whole range of academic and research areas that make people's lives and the world a better place.
But frankly, bleeding blue and having a strong disdain for a number of collegiate sports teams including Notre Dame, Michigan State and Ohio State doesn't lessen my respect for people who have managed to overcome a poor choice about where to go as a college student when they were 17 or 18 and accomplish big things worthy of respect.
Should one feel like a traitor? If they're from Belfast, I suppose they might.
No politics / religion? Man this thread is trodding some dangerous turf
I usually don't wear green, but I have an old UNC-Charlotte shirt and a Colorado St. shirt that I can wear for occasions such as this. Incidently, I also own a couple red shirts (since my sister is at Maryland), but I don't wear either color often. I don't feel guilty wearing either color, though, unless I tried to do it on a big game day.
I just farted.
For today, goodbye. For tomorrow, good luck. And forever, Go Blue.
The only green I own is my St. Patty's day outfit, and if it's 3/17 and U of M isn't playing MSU and I have no shame in wearing it. The only red I own is aa red wings shirt. I only break it out if I'm going to a game and even then I feel dirty.
What's with your boss? Is he some kind of IRA sympathizer? I assume you are Protestant and feel that you should be able to wear Orange. You should contact your HR department because I would think that this could be considered discrimination -- if you want to take it that far.
Also, why is everyone talking about MSU in this thread?
If he is an IRA sympathizer I consider him a terrorist the same.. Ernis is right. You should be allowed to wear Orange. Don't celebrate that holiday. Wear your Orange sash on July 12th instead. No Surrender!
in the 1980s, seeing a bunch of drunken American cops come around the corner on a Dublin street and asking my Irish friends WTF. They shrugged and told me they showed up every year for some kind of parade.
Green is definitely not in my palette.
No. If you really want to give Sparty fans an ego boost, complain about how many people you see wearing green and how uncomfortable you are with it.
Photography Facebook Page. Lots of Michigan sports photos. And planes, lots of planes:
Just don't wear MSU green. Simple.

It's a fucking color. I also wear red tones on occasion.
All right Lemmings. Bring the heat.
Nope. Not at all.
Ireland was around long before Michigan State was.
Exactly. Like I'm gonna act like Michigan State is a bigger deal than Ireland? Fuck no.

It's totally unintentional. I wouldn't mind wearing a green shirt if it wasn't MSU, but I have to get people to not pinch me every year. So, to answer your question, I guess not.
Beer me 5:30
Because I'm not wearing it, I don't really pay attention to the minor holidays. I always miss St. Patrick's Day somehow, I guess I don't care.
not just "douchey" MGoBlog user, but now TRUSTED MGoBlog user
Meijer had a bunch of Michigan-themed St. Paddy's shirts at a pretty good discount last week, but I could not bring myself to buy a big green sweatshirt.
I don't care if it did have a Block M (the most beautiful letter in the world) on it, I couldn't do it.
Shit, I'm dressing up like a fucking leprechauan, drinking all day and kissing every woman I see while dancing jigs & flashing me lucky charms.
But yeah, Go Blue & all that too!

Wow what a dumb thread. Not everything Green is MSU. You're not a traitor if you wear green to cheer for your kids team who has green team colors, you aren't a traitor if you're a Celtics fan and you sure as hell aren't a traitor if you wear green on St. Patty's Day. The whole campus wears green.
THIS WON TIME I SAW A SPARTAN DAWG WHERING A GREEN SHIRT AND I THROUGH MY POOP AT HIS BUTTFACE. IT WAS FUNNY GO BLUE!
Laugh out loud funny!

but fuck St. Paddy's Day anyhow. Buncha drunken layabouts vomiting all over themselves.
Get off my lawn, but first stop pissing on it.
