It says..."Kenny Demens says no...HARD!
It is priceless.

It is priceless.
My favorite gift was a pair of the maize Michigan basketball shorts.
because I wore out my old ones. Also got a Michigan stein, which will go perfectly with the bottle of Founders Bolt Cutter I received!
From my wife and kids. Best part... She ordered the Schutt, like Denard wears. Not because the Schutt is that much cooler, but because SHE knew the difference. I am blessed.
I happen to have a friend who is a UM diehard and got me a Michigan Marching Band Album and shot glass. These two items will go well with my other collection of Big Ten memorabilia. From your enemy down south Merry Christmas MgoBloggers!
Modest compared to most here -
Hot chocolate (says it turns blue, we'll see)
I opened 3 tickets to the Outback Bowl! I live in SC so this one means a lot.
Michigan sunglasses and the Michigan Daily book from my sister in law and brother. Wearing the sunglasses right now at the pool!
Framed and autographed picture of coach hoke holding the sugar bowl trophy in the midst of maize and blue confetti.
A new hoodie. Pretty rad.
I got my dad hockey tix for his birthday (we're playing Bowling Green that night, so it should be a respite from this down season), but for today he got a new M skull cap of the sort Denard and Devin wear under their helmets
I got a pretty nice long sleeved maise clima cool shirt from my brother. Can't wait to rock it to the UM/UCONN game next September. Living on the east coast I have to settle for watching UM usually play PSU. Instead this year I am gonna watch with my CT friends as we stomp them!
Got a Maize #3 Basketball jersey, Maize hoodie I've been looking for for about 4 years, 900th victory t-shirt, some long adidas black socks, earbuds, calendar and oh, this guy was probably the biggest surprise:
It's so fitting that he's staying right next to my signed Mike Hart helmet.
Got a couple cool shirts. An outback bowl Tshirt and a slippery rock one which I'm really excited for.
Also Michigan poptarts. Fuck yeah.
For my 11 y/o son and basketball player:
framed Fab Five photo
#3 Trey Burke UM new uniform
blue and maize thin mini wrist bands that the bball team wears
Charles Woodson rookie card
Jalen Rose rookie card
Jalen Rose card in UM uniform
Glen Rice card in UM uniform
Charles Woodson Starting figure
blue and maize jelly beans
UM candy bar
.... the uniform was expensive ($110) but the rest was fairly cheap. Now that I look at it all, I think it was sort of UM over-emphasized... but then I remember, that is impossible to do.
My grandfather used to work for Bo and since he passed away a couple of years ago, my grandma has slowly been giving his stuff to my dad and me...
This year, I got a Michigan apron signed by Ron Kramer, a piece of the field turf before they re-surfaced it in the early 90s, and an old school Michigan flag.
Not to mention she got my 10 month old a cheerleader uniform for next season...
Got 2 tix to the game against MSU at Crisler.
Got my dad the Michigan Daily's History of Michigan Football book, and had Lloyd Carr sign it. Interestingly enough Carr was a family friend of my dad's roommate at UofM, so we had a nice conversation.
Also framed some old newspapers of our national championship pages he saved, so now Rumeal Robinson and Charles Woodson adorn our basement.
As for me, just more blue and maize wear. Hockey jersey was an early gift I got before the season. Bought my little brother a "Michigan Brother" shirt, he loves it.
I received the Michigan grilling utensils and my 6-month old received the bib and Michigan sippy cups, but the beat reaction was seeing the smile on my little 4-yr old daughters face when she opened up her new "go blue" as she says hooded sweatshirt. She immediately put it on and wore it over to the in-laws house! Gotta love when your kids embrace our obsession!
That are NOT really 2 XL. They barely fit my 12 year old. WTF?! Addidas blows.
Better than Nike. Merry x mas.
12 year old that can't fit into an XXL t-shirt ? #firstworldproblems
No it doesn't and are the Wolverines recruiting him?
My gf just graduated from MSU, and her parents got us tickets to the Mich vs. MSU BBall game in EL on feb 12..
Can't wait as i have never been to a D1 college basketball game..
Mama was a very good girl, apparently. I got a Denard autographed photo! So freaking exited! Also got a book about the history of M football put together by the Michigan Daily, a M basketball t shirt and another ornament! Yay! !
My 3 kids (actually momma paid for it) got me airfare to go to Orange County Cali to hang out with my brother who just moved there from Denver, do an extreme mud run, and watch the Super Bowl with some of my oldest friends.
No kids for 4 days!!!
My mom (also known as NANA) comes up tomorrow to spoil my kids, so I'm sure there will be 2-3 items from the MDEN in there for me!
Life is grand!
But my wife kills me!!! Every year I circle tons of cool gift ideas from the mden catalog and every year she buys from the rip off sites like fanatic. The gear is never cool but I can't tell her that because its Christmas! Well here is to at least getting Michigan gear even though its all grey
And my wife is from South America and doesn't even get the concept of college sports fanaticism.
But this year out of the blue my wife got me an UTL panoramic and my mom got me a "What it means to be a Wolverine" book which is quite good.
I'm totally jealous! You lucky bastard!!! Merry Christmas and Go Blue
From the parents. I have already used it and its wonderful.
My wife got them for wearing on the flight down. It's fun to read this thread to see how many of these items an old Blue like me has collected over the years. I am jealous of the commemerative Bunyan trophy. Merry Christmas to all! Go Blue!
A pre-gaming with pat tank top, and a beer winged helmet with straws for game days
I used some of the designs I had posted a few weeks ago as iPhone wallpapers to make custom t shirts for my family - I think they turned out pretty well! They haven't been washed yet, so I dunno how well it'll hold up.
Looks great. I love those iPhone wallpaper pictures, by the way.
I would buy one of those!
Huge Michigan Igloo cooler. Wheels, 4 cup holders on the top, fits up to 90 cans. Next year on Higgins and the golf course should be awesome.
Just get the old school Block M hat that Bo wore. New Era 59FIFTY series is sweet. You can find it on lids.com
got one of the very sweet WE ON shirts the bball team wore at the preseason NIT in NYC. two thumbs up.
Canvas picture type deals. It says the words "michigan wolverines" ande each letter is a portion of the big house. So it looks like the stadium, but broken apart, only contained within each letter. Also got a Michigan hoodie. And my sister got me a Michigan alum shirt as part of our ongoing mocking of the Walmart meme. Also, she got a Michigan pillow pet and named him walvie lol.
fat head, those who stay banner, championship banner, long sleeve t, and a lanyard for my teacher ID!
Hope she starts feeling better really, really soon.
Tickets to m vs Indiana, the last game of reg season. Also tickets to the sweet 16 and elite 8 in Indy. Hoping for the top overall seed!
Some things never change.
Fa Ra Ra Ra Ra.
Home and away bball shorts, and Michigan golf tees
New socks, new underwear, some PJs, 2 coffee cups, a sweet new key chain and a maize and blue superman shirt. She doesn't care for football herself but she gets it and she gets me and that's why I'm lucky to have her.
Got their first wallet made of duct tape of all things. I think their cousin's made them from scratch. It's yellow and has a block m in the middle. They also got some sweet UofM winter hats. Totally cool!
with reproductions of past game day programs including some from Ferry Field. Nice way to countdown the days until next season.
Block M. Golf umbrella. The shirt is almost highlighter yellow. Also, a navy football shirt.
The wife picked me up a full size replica helmet :
and the display case to go with it:
Very happy - been wanting one for a long time. Thought about saving up for a authentic one, but this one looks just as real up on the bookcase..
Go Blue and Merry Christmas!!
