Ever been to Portillo's? It gets a spot pretty high on the list, even with the Pizza and Belk Bowls on.
Home for me is a town with about as many places to eat as people, and I still fight traffic to go a town north and eat there.
$2 refills on mugs of beer after you buy the first mug/beer for $3.50 on Sundays and Mondays, plus TVs and pool tables. I get a little rush every time I sneak into enemy territory to drink and sneak back out undetected.
If you ever make it to Illinois, you need to make it your first stop. Anyone else from the area can vouch for that (you can't get it any further east than Merrilville, IN though, which sucks).
that was an insane catch of a pass that never should have been thrown. Nice play to get to first and goal. How do you throw into double coverage like that? It ended up being triple.
Portillo's alone would be the start of a great night.
Unintentional onside kick works like a charm for Purdue. This is hilarious.
Hope drew that up
I wondered why they didn't go for 2, they were going for the onside kick after. Because it worked I'll say it was clever. :o)
are you kidding? Gutsy call. I think the mathlete's analysis is proving accurate in this game. MOAR two-pt conversions! MOAR onside kicks!!
This is an ugly game, but man, I really find a lot of these low games against equally crappy teams to be quite entertaining.
These games tend to start sloppy because of the long layoffs. I would expect the same in the Michigan vs Virginia Tech game as well. So don't yell at your tv if Denard starts out a little rusty.
Another turnover!? 2 each for both teams and we're still in the 1st half.
I didn't realize this until seeing Alex Carder and remembering the jackass reporter saying he was the best QB in Michigan, but we actually played WMU this year. That seems like an eternity ago.
Two great gashes of the Purdue D end in an interception. This is getting oddly entertaining for the turnovers alone.
OFFTOPIC: I spent most of the first quarter on the phone getting promoted - late Christmas gift to me.
So when my power goes out in a storm, I can now blame you?
It means you can call me and I will direct it to the appropriate designer, rather than design the solution myself. :-)
Do you have the authority to redirect the repair crews to my area as well? In all seriousness, I'm in the northeast corner of Ann Arbor, and in an older neighborhood with above ground power lines which made it seem like any substantial snow storm came through we would lose power. It has actually gotten significantly infrequent over the last couple years. Anything that you guys did, or is it mostly the transmission line companies?
It's probably something I designed for a reliability project. I find myself out there quite a bit. I typically have the north and west side of the city, as well as Scio and Lima Townships. That is (soon to be was) me too.
Between increased power outages and increase in bowl game threads.
Or then causation....
I applaud Western for breaking with convention and calling their Sam linebackers Rover instead. It's about time someone finally stood up and did it. /s
Loved that fan sign that said something along the lines of "Detroit belongs to Purdue". Only their fan base could embrace the Pizza Bowl like that. Take pride in it BoilerFan.
I have a feeling the lead and a game of "hot potato" will have a lot in common in this game, for apparently nobody really wants to win this one.
And yet noone wants to lose it either. It's a vicious cycle.
Jesus, second onside attempted and recovered by purdue. This game rocks. Seriously, very entertaining.
Kinda sad that Purdue needs to revert to an on side kick half way through the second quarter against Western.
Needs to, or is capatalizing on an advantage based on the way Western lines up. It worked twice.
Danny Hope reads the Mathlete.
.....shouting, "MOAR ONSIDE KICKS!". That would be pretty funny, I think.
EDIT: Danny Hope storms the field, distracting the officials with his facial hair. Looking at the replay, I think I see his point, not to mention the moustache.
OH,GEEZ EDIT: Did I miss something? Did someone grease the football?
Some seriously great MACtion
Even though the lockout's over this is still better than todays NBA.
Another unsolicited slam on the nba
This is a rather exicting goal line stand, but alas, it ends in a field goal.....or an onside kick.
Just used the Little Caesars coupon for free crazy bread that they advertised during the game. So good.
It is pretty good, but I don't understand what is so crazy about it. The first time I had it, I was expecting cheese to be involved in some capacity.
It is really hitting the spot for me. I am a recent u of m college graduate in transition to a job, so naturally I got one, but this definitely helps the pockets.
Once again, fouls and Zeno's Paradox....it's uncanny this bowl season.
I've been wanting to ask you. What is the deal with the ponies. I just googled Derpy and laughed at the youtube video.
My kids actually got me into the latest incarnation of "My Little Pony", which I obviously find amusing enough to make use of show-related memes, not to mention my avatar. It's actually a sort of Animaniacs-esque deal, where the animation is clearly meant for kids, but the references in the show are actually pop culture in their nature (it makes constant Broadway and movie references), and some of the humor is moderately adult. It helps that I actually know a few people that work on the show in Vancouver through my sister, so I've become mild acquaintances with some of its creators. I just find the show funny basically, and for someone that has to do what I do each day, somewhat escapist.
I didn't think I would learn anything about my little ponies today. I also loled at the definition of brony on urban dictionary. From the few clips I saw it doesn't look all that bad.
In the year that I have been on this board, you're actually only the second person to ask. I don't mind answering - I am obviously not ashamed of it. LOL
I didn't care why you chose it. I just thought it was hilarious and awesome. You are also cool b/c you are an avid CFB junkie like myself. There is no suck thing as a bad bowl game. It gives me the opprtunity to watch teams I would never get to see play unless they had them. Maybe there will be 30 next year!
Hope's not going to like that.
