Thanks for your efforts concerning all sports Michigan, especially the football. It's been another trying season, but through it all you have maintained this blog to it's high standards of performance. I too had 7-5-ish expectations for the team at the beginning of the season, but the "5" portion of the record I did not expect to beat upon my psyche as it has. With every loss I have written less and less forum content. I can't; all I can come up with is pathetic gibberish. We've all suffered as the season progressed; for the most part forum content degenerated to a mixture of petty squabbles and blah,blah,blah. Chaos. Then the flock comes together as the shepard appears; an entry from you. Each week you are able to rise above the angst and whip up something insightful, informative, and entertaining. This, despite knowing that you too have recieved the dongpunches we the readers have felt and has us all spiritually bentover in some freaky agony. I went to school here at Michigan thinking I was smart, but left knowing I was less so (I did garner a truckload of character, though); I don't know what it takes to maintain a top-notch blog, but I apperently would not have that either. So, thanks, Merry Christmas to you and yours, and god bless; I feel I can safely say from all of us who partake of the blog, that it is both a blessing and a pleasure to read what's on your mind concerning Michigan sports.
