So I have been following this blog for about two years now, but rarely make posts on the board. I enjoy this blog very much, and check it just about every day. I grew up near Cincinnati my whole life, and currently live in Nebraska, where I am in the military. I made the eleven hour drive home to Cincinnati last night, because my cousin was killed Afghanistan last Saturday. I will be missing the UCONN game Saturday, as that will be the day that we will be burying my cousin. Although I am from Ohio and have never lived in Michigan, I love my Wolverines just as much as the next Michigan fan, and still consider myself a Michigan Man. Just remember on Saturday that this is just a game, and lets be thankful that we have the freedom to watch our beloved Wolverines on Saturdays. If you know one or see a soldier, sailor, airman, or marine, take the time out to quickly thank them for what they do. God Bless this country, and GO BLUE!!!
Remember this on Saturday...
For your service and perspective.
I'm sorry for your loss. This really does put in perspective how ridiculious we all are about sports. But, sports shield us from real life shit. Thank you for your service and all that you do and what your cousin did for this country. Hopefully you have something to be happy about Saturday.
I'm so sorry for the loss for both you and your family. Thank you to your cousin for serving all of us, and again thank you for putting a game in perspective for what it really is. All of this community's thoughts go out to your family.
I am sorry for your loss. It is good to step back and realize there are much more serious things going on in the world other than the goings on of a Football team. Thank you for your service.
Thanks for your service. You and your cousin are better men than I could ever aspire to be.
Michigan football is my distraction from all the depressing things I cover in the media, and I take the games real seriously. But, like you say, it is only a game. Again, condolences.
I'm sorry for your loss. Thank you for all you do for us. God bless you and your family.
Semper Fi. I cant stand it when we lose a brother. My thoughts and prayers are with you, your family and all our brothers and sisters abroad.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Thank you for your service and God bless you and your family.
You are a better man than I. God Bless.
We'll cheer extra loud for you on Saturday.
Thank you drew, my family is praying for yours during this difficult time.
Thoughts and Prayers for your loss. God Bless!
I have a family member there now.
Thank you and your family for giving so much to this country. Will be thinking of your cousin this Saturday.
Everyone here just got PosBanged....Thank You to everyone for being considerate to and keeping things in perspective for this young man
You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. It's people like you that put life into perspective.
... I will remember your cousin when we see the Honor Guard Saturday at the Big House.
Football is great, UM football--even better. But it is just a game.
I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope you have some great memories to sustain you and your family this weekend.
God bless you and your family. Thank you for all that you do. It is because of you that we have a country and the freedoms we take for granted everyday. Thank you from the entire Go Blue nation.
Godspeed and God bless! Keep fighting the good fight, condolences and prayers. GO BLUE!!
God Bless You and Your family
My deepest condolences. Losing people close to us is the worst.
you have put things in perspective.
God bless all those that make our freedoms possible. Most people rarely think about this sort of stuff till they read something like this.
You will be in my thoughts.
...your thoughts place things in perspective.
My condolences, and it goes without saying that we owe you and your cousin the most heartiest thanks. Godspeed.
