Putting out the MGoBatsignal for.......the Michigan Stormtrooper!
Still waiting for my MgoStillsuit.
Are you actively engaged in kanly against House Meyer?
I'm liking our chances. Our Mentats are certain to be smarter than their Mentats. As long as we can keep Emperor Delany from sending in the Saudaukar....
You still use aol?
It runs most smoothly with Netscape.
With everyone's favorite search engine, AskJeeves.com
AltaVista was where it was at.
AOL was great for us early adopters of the interweb tube system who yearned to hear "You have mail". It still does mail.
The force is not necessary. The OT-ishness of this topic will eventually draw Darth around for his drive-by negging.
But Google shows him to be Jon Leopold of Goodrich, Michigan.
Maybe BTN, SI, or MVictors got his info for permission to use his photo (not that they had to, but often cover all bases)
There's this guy too
Or, you know, contact Miss Michigan, just to be thorough and all.
The Split Ms are a no-go
The MGoBlog Force (ier):
Send me her contact information!
He has a twitter I think.
A University event that requires the presence of the Michigan Stormtrooper? I'm intrigued.
Let me guess, the College of Engineering was successful in constructing a Death Star and we're dedicating it by letting the Michigan Stormtrooper wipe Columbus off the face of the Earth? Am I close?
No true Michigan Grad would build a Death Star. It is not a good bargain in terms of cost to kill ratio. For the price of the Death Star you could field multiple battlegroups of Imperial warships, each anchored by a Super Star Destroyer and a half dozen Imperial Mark II Star Destroyers. You'd likely even have the money left over to toss in TIE Defenders and Skipray Blastboats as opposed to the piece of shit TIE/Ln fighters that they normally carry. Maybe even some Dark Troopers and SD-10s.
After that, Alderaan giving you some shit? Bring the SSD into a polar orbit, fry the ice cap with your energy weapons which will mess the climate up, have the Imperial Class star destroyers go after active tectonic lines and crack the world's crust (leading to volcanic activity) and you'll have yourself an unhabitable hell world in the space of weeks to a month, depending on how much of a hurry you're in. Plus another ten fleets that can be busy razing other worlds.
Or you can always grab an asteroid with a tractor beam and just take out those peaceniks like they're a bunch of dinosaurs.
Rather than be put out of work by the ultimate power in this universe. I'm not saying, but I'm saying, sounds like someone was in charge of exhaust port design.
Besides, no Michigan Grad would build a Death Star anyway.
So what you're saying is that the ability to destroy a planet is insignificant when compared to the power of the something something....
Wait a minute....what are we talking about cost efficiency for when I keep reading about the massive budget surplus the athletic department keeps running?
Look, if DB is going to keep raising my ticket prices, I want my planet destroyed RIGHT NOW, not over a couple of weeks. #Murica!
I'd imagine the design of the luxury suites is holding up the process. I mean the one the Emperor had was nowhere near code, open pits to the reactor and everything.
I think I saw this upcoming on Larry the Cable Guy's show.
You've given this a lot of thought. I like it.
His public facebook. Just message him on that or if you lack Facebook, get a child or grandchild to do it.
any K-Pop undates! When do we get to read about Little Sister's most recent exploits?
I do have some Adventures of Lil Sis stories still, but I'm actually working on a monster story about China. It's not as humorous as some of the others, but it is interesting and involves the research of a Michigan grad student. I'm still trying to edit it down, as it is 7 to 10 pages single spaced but it really works best in a single sitting I think, so time to tweak it a bit more.
If I get tired of it I'll pump out the tales of Lil Sister, her MIP, and some others.
but why would anyone want to dress up like a storm trooper? it has to be the equivalent of wearing a Lions' jersey.
maybe he is out not looking for droids or getting his ass beat by teddy bears.
I have an event that I'd like to hire the stormtrooper to attend. Happy to work out the details. Will pay. Bluewoodruff@yahoo.com. Thank you
with him last weekend. He works during the evening but he will respond.
I was hoping to meet up with him for a ginger ale the weekend for the softball game but he has a convention (I think) that he is going to.
I don't normally post here, but since this topic nearly directly involves me. :P
Jon is indeed the Wolverines Trooper. He can be found/contacted at that Facebook page previously posted, or at the BlastyTrooper Twitter. I know this because I am his friend/photographer - you can see me, sort of, in the photo MGoVoice posted, wearing the #1 jersey. MGoSoftball can vouch for both of us.
You'll also be able to see on his Facebook all of the photos and that, yes, he has absolutely updated his armor since he began! No more split M's! The helmet was even originally colored electrical tape wrapped to look like the winged helmet; he has since gotten it painted.
Any questions, you can ask me or just contact him directly at the Facebook (Wolverines Trooper) or Twitter (BlastyTrooper). But let me tell you, this is a man who gets around - from the Rose Bowl parade to every Michigan sporting event you can think of. He is more than happy to attend any MGoEvent, should it fit into his schedule.
How are you? Brooke and I missed you last weekend. I know Jon is busy but are you going to the game this weekend?
If there was any way possible, we would be there!! Unfortunately the Wolverines Trooper and I are committed to an event up in Traverse City. Gotta spread the MGoLove around. :P
I am so sad I missed last weekend, especially knowing Emily was there! Poor girl.
Are you sure you don't want the Michigan Master Chief as well?
