this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
<-----------Obviously, there's the avatar picture to the left, but here's a few more.
First time standing on his own:
Crying the night of the National Championship Game:
And last - a whole family shot of the entire MGoFamily:
From my in person meeting impression that MGoBlog Men have that je ne sais quoi that allows them to trade up big time when it comes to their women.
Thanks! I'll show my wife your comment when I get home, she'll appreciate it. Yeah I definitely got lucky getting her, she's definitely a step above what a guy like me should be able to land. She was a cheerleader at GVSU her freshman year before transferring to Michigan, where she was offered a spot on the team but turned it down due to needing to work to pay for school, so I am a lucky son of a gun, thats for sure.
But after the HTTV release party last year many people called the photos from it a dork fest (I can say that...my picture was in there too looking dorky), but the women they were with certainly were not. So it's more average to above average guys with really fine women. (I did the same.)
Mike and I work at the same company and we're having lunch tomorrow. We can report back on each others' levels of dorkiness...
are you dorkier for having the Michigan Voltron avatar, or am I dorkier for knowing that it is a Voltron avatar?
I'd say it's a tie.
Met Mike over lunch and determined that we are both dorks, but that he is a bigger geek, while I am a bigger nerd. So there you go.
Also, nice meeting you in person, Mike!
It was nice to put a face to the username, and agree on the geek/nerd assessment.
If there are any other MGoBloggers on here that work for AonHewitt in Lincolnshire, IL, let Andrew or I know so we can all do a UM lunch!
Is it bad that my first post on this hallowed blog is not about Michigan sports at all, but is instead about my kid? If so it's my husbands fault. I was content to be a lurker until he sent me the link to this post. Before I knew what had happened the internet had sucked 30 minutes of my life away while I was learning about image hosting and picture uploading.
Here's my little man less than 24 hours fresh belatedly celebrating the 2012 Sugar Bowl win.
And here he is less than a year later cheering on his team during the 2013 Outback Bowl. He was so sure the carrot would help spur Team 133 to victory...
And welcome to MGOBLOG, fellow Mom!! Wendy, the Beer Mom from san diego, and I are happy to have you!! (I suspect HERM is also a woman, but it hasn't been proven yet.)
I am also in that club, but my baby just turned 14.
Thanks ladies for making me feel welcome!!
This is definitely in the running for the "Best First Post" award. Thanks and we're glad to have you on the Board!
Ha, thanks! I've been lurking on my husband's account for a couple years and just recently got my own. Posting can be intimidating (in a good way) on this board so I'm glad my first one went over so well.
That's the best thing about this thread (if I do say so myself) . . . An MGoParent can't help but comment!
I agree. I have Bella and Easton the best of both worlds.
Seeing all these little buggers in maize and blue makes me want to have one of my own, and I can barely take care of myself.
Now if only I knew how to do it I would add mine. Nice to see all the young wolverines!
I hope he didn't hurt Lewan's hand
This takes up the rest of my free time when I'm not on the sideline shooting photos!
Cutting down a Christmas tree with my oldest (a lot warmer in CA).
At Christmas time
And eating ice cream at the mall.
Our newest patojito now big enough for his M hat. And he'll be home in time for Memorial Day festivities - he gets discharged on Saturday morning!
EDIT: Not sure why it's so big. He's actually very small in real life.
Can we get an Mgopuppy thread?
But I can't help showing off my babies after seeing all yours!
Baby #1, about 6 months old, toweling off after bathtime:
Baby #2: Almost 10 years old now, and so outdoorsy! Here's a picture from a trip up to the Angeles National Forest.
OK, it's hard to see the block M, but the colors are there, and man is he one happy fan! Probably just saw a Denard smile or something... I also have video of him (unprompted) singing "The Victors" (tune only) while he was playing with his toys...
Edit: Original post distorted the pic...
Our son was born three and a half weeks ago, but it looks like he's got the fist pump down already.
He's got spirit! That is a CUTE baby.
He won't stop screaming...
My twin girls:
My MGoTwin boys... arranged marraiges?
