Football Display Case
...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
strong indictment of AAU right heah
Glockner sides with justice
a good cause, and a good time
good job gents
in all honesty the first handy hurt like hell, so you may have lucked out.
Sorry if that's too much info, but if any ladies are reading this the goal is not to give out indian burns.
Talking unless spoken to during class, any food between three main meals, and also doing an email thing that gives you a new thing to give up each day.
Wow, that's serious commitment. Very impressed, no sarcasm at all.
The swag is back.
Wow I can't. I'd rather give up alcohol, strippers and fast cars over MGB.
Well just head over to ESPN, 90% of the stuff they post about Michigan comes from here anyway and what doesn't come frome this site will eventually end up as a link here anyway.
Chocolate for me. Good thing I don't have a valentine and have to worry about Valentine's Day chocolate the next day.
lik dis if u cri evrytiem :'(
...you should have given up having a "significant other" for lent and you could still have chocolate.
I will give up MGoBlog for Lent for the 2nd year in a row. You do know that we get Sundays off on our Lenten sacrifices, right? You can pop in on Sundays...
Homer? Who is Homer? My name is Wolverine Incognito.
I love catholicism so much that I am giving that up for Lent - Stephen Colbert
The Team, The Team, The Team.
I'm giving up all cooked food. (40 days of raw fruits & vegtables) It will be a challenge but I hope to lose a few pounds during lent. I'll have to avoid going to the local fish fry with my family if I hope to succeed.
Yes I got him a gift. He had a kidney stone. You piss a rock through your pecker, you deserve more than just a pat on the fucking back.
Get ready to shit....a lot.

I can't go one day without visiting the site 30 times minimum. Don't know how you do it.
I'm giving up religion for Lent.
I didn't know Lord Voldemort aka Harry Potter Satan was Catholic! Also congrats on the kid (insert joke about Catholics and birth control).
Hail to the Victors!
You, sir, are stronger than I. I can't go through an entire work day without MGoBlog, much less for 40 days.
Brady Hoke: Kicking Ass And Signing Names On The Recruiting Trail
Lent isn't even completely religious anymore. I know plenty of people who give up things for lent as a popular society thing - these are non-Catholic, borderline cristian people.
I ate a doughnut by another name today and it was delicious, and I've only been in Catholic churches for weddings and funerals. Is that a problem?
you don't mind rotting in hell!
Not sure if serious? Gonna give the benefit of the doubt thats "/s"
The image is of a sticker found on all football helmets. It basically says if you want to live a normal healthy life Do Not Put the Helmet on.- Here's to those who do....
Lent is for quitters
I'm giving up abstinence for Lent!
I miss King of Belch.
I have a friend who also has three girls and he's still looking for the light at the end of the tunnel, they're going for four so he still has a chance. As for Lent, nice job really sacrificing something important to you. Remember, Lent has two parts, one is the sacrifice, the other is filling that same time with something else. Hopefully you find something that satisfies your soul to fill the moments, maybe hours, you'll now have free. Stay strong brother!

Whether to up vote or down vote...gave it a pos when you snuck in the news about the kid. Congrats!
Thank you, Coach Hoke, for bringing Michigan back.
he will be well cared for by 3 big sisters. make sure you take him to hockey/wrestling/football practice and don't let the girls dress him up in fu-fu stuff, could confuse him later on in life.
only 2 of ours are girls, the other 5 are sons. can always hope for another daugther though.
The meaning of your user name becomes apparent.
I will fight 'til I am dead, a winged helmet on my head.
and i'm rather fond of bowhunting. either way works.
Psalms, or Kahlil Gibran? Or both?
don't know who k. gibran is. can he play basketball? we seem to need a bit of help these days...
My wife and kids are Catholic and the 3 of them give up chocolate for Lent each year. Yes, in recognition of Jesus' 40 day fast in the desert....they give up dessert. I am always filled with ahh and wonder at their grave sacrfice while we sit munching paczkis.
I tell my kids that since i Lent the church my time and money on holidays and the occasional Sunday that I like to collect Interest this time of year. I do so by spending more time and effort on the things i enjoy. Jesus approves.
Oh where, oh where is Antoine Joubert's hair?
...practicing Wolverine, which requires that I constantly frequent mgoblog to quench my thirst for everything that is maize and blue (and OT)!
*However, I am extremely jealous that you have purged your household of the Bachelor and Grey's Anatomy.
When my wife asked if we could raise our kids Jewish, my reply was "As long as we raise them Michigan fans. You have your religion, I have mine."
Do you know how many times I had to read that first part of youR first sentence to figure out what you were trying to say?
Not that I loved Rich Rod less, but that I loved Michigan more.
To posterity: you don't always, and indeed should not always, need to use 'and I' in place of 'and me.' if he said 'my and my wife's' or the reverse, it would probably be better. Then again I hate Internet grammar police. So I'm not correcting anyone, I'm just saying why it sounded awkward.
Mike Martin told me he loves me. My life is quite possibly complete.

what's wrong with purple?

About 4 or 5 years ago I have up all Michigan-themed websites and news stories. It was tough. I eventually found there were other things out there. I am far from a religious person, but I feel that doing something like this makes you a stronger person for non-moral purposes. Last year was beer (hard liquor was fine). This year: porn/nsfw stuff.
You can do it!!
Why give up something you enjoy? As long as it's not shortening your life. You only live once. We can't take anything with us.
Mgoblog is not an addiction but a way of life.
Blue is Faster
I agree. the premise that mgoblog is an indulgence or frivolous vice that should be given up is flawed. would you give up excercise for Lent? maybe you should just give up reading.
i'm so old i used to play hoops with him in the off-season at michigan. whatever did happen to him? he was mr. basketball and supposed to be the greatest.
at Oakland CC
According to established Church dogma, Sundays during Lent do not count towards your sacrifice, as Sundays are mini-Easters. Just FYI.
You know, Valdemort, dressing them in pink and purple is entirely on you. There's no XX chromosomal influence on color choice. Pure environment.
My 4 and 7 yr old XX chromosomers would much rather wear Maize and Blue than pink or purple!
Keep your stick on the ice.
This is classic. Great post. And congratulations to you and your family!
Disgruntled former moderator. I got a lot of problems with you people!
God's blessings to you and your family. Wonderful that you and your wife take so seriously your faith, Lent, and the example you set for your children.
I can't wait for the white smoke. It has to be the best tradition ever.
Have a blessed lent, bro.
I can never think of good things to give up. :(
Then I hear what other people are giving up and I'm like, "Oh, that's a good idea... why didn't I think of that??" But then I don't wanna give that thing up because it feels disingenuous because I'm copying someone else's Lent idea.....
I just fail at Christianity sometimes.
I am giving up lent.
