This is maaaaybe premature there, ESPN. Maryland #1 FWIW.
What's on your mind?
How things have flipped.......OSU was the one on top getting the laugh, pretty sure things are turning over for the good. Hopefully forever.
Women's college softball is very addicting. Especially at a high level like the Super Regionals and World Series.
I'm currently watching Donnie Darko with some friends and trying to get up the courage to down this god-awful cocktail the girlfriend made. Getting it down will not be fun but the results would be enjoyable.
Sounds like a legit night. I'm watching 3 AM public broadcasting in Cbus, and there's a mezzo-soprano of Asian-American descent who is singing these Western art songs (solo vocalist w/o score, accompanied by classical grand piano). The show is "Ovation at BGSU." It was interesting because a) I believe she wrote them herself and b) the text was set in what I believe was Chinese (I recognized some vowel sounds from the score to Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon). There just isn't that much well-known Western classical vocal rep that's set in Chinese. Performance-wise, I thought she performed the pieces well but sometimes she was showing the emotional meaning of the music a little too forcefully for the content of the lyrics IMO.
It's too bad the NFL season may not happen the year the Lions had a chance to be competitive
This. I would be so disappointed if there was no NFL season because of the lockout. The Lions have a chance to make some noise this year because of the good foundation they have built over the past few years. Being a temporary resident of Wisconsin, I can't wait for the chance to wear my fresh new Suh jersey around town after they beat those damn Packers this year again.
I think you've found your stride again.
Michigan hockey was not expected to play so well. The same thing goes for the underrated basketball team. I see good things from Denard and the rest of the team
june will be a very good month for michigan
Not disputing that he said this, but when did he say this? I must have missed it.
He just posted it on his twitter not long ago.
I'm thinking Morgan and maybe Diamond would be a good start to the month!
I think there's potential in there for Magnuson too, given the tone of his comments on the Shane Callahan thread.
Brady Hoke and Al Borges are going to do me! A lot!
run the football.
Very interesting first post...
All right! Let's see what new skillz Fred Jackson has shared with our RBs.
I'm watching Myth Busters and they are trying to split a tree in half with 6 sticks of dynamite... didn't happen. I didn't think it would.
I'm a younger fan, I grew up during all of Carr's years and was a fan because of my father. I started following the team in the 2009 season only to hear bad things. You can only imagine my thoughts at the 2010 season. I was amazed by Shoelace though, and ended up buying my first jersey (#16) last year. (I'll probably regret that buy (not because of Denard, because 16 won't be used much after this year))
I'm still in school and wear Wolverines gear every day I can. All the people I am friends with in real life and on Facebook know how obsessed I am. In the MSU week I talked more crap than I should have and had my lock on my locker flipped a ton. I went to the MSU game this year and it was thee biggest dissapointment of my entire life. I knew we probably shouldn't have won at all but I hyped myself up too much and now it's almost impossible for me to be excited about a game. Even the Wing's series against the Sharks this year struggled to raise my brow because I didn't want to be hurt so much (e.g. my body was not ready (I go on /sp/, I know))
Basically I've never seen a winning Michigan season- EVER
That being said, the awesome memories of brutal, hard hitting defenses and offenses pulling off miracles that you guys have are existent in my mind only through YouTube videos (Braylon Edwards vs. MSU video has over 200 plays by now, being my favorite game to ever look back at, I have a picture of the 1st or 2nd TD, the one where he jumps like 6 feet into the air to grab it, stapled onto my folder and carry it everywhere.)
I just really want to watch Michigan win. I know OSU is our biggest rival but seriously I want the Spartans shut up. I want to be confident in our team and talk some smack. Lets just win, please.
This last year Michigan football had a winning season, just saying.
But I get your point. Oh how I long for the days of spoiling OSU's season, Big Ten titles, and great defense. Michigan football losses hurt, but good days will come.
Don't Give Up. Compared to you, I am ancient. I became a fan when I was about 8, after Bo beat Woody in 1969. My older brothers went to UM and I did later in 1979. Of course, I enjoyed years in which we won most -- sometimes it seemed like all of the games. But we hardly ever won the big one. We lost far more bowls than we won. New Year's Day was always a terrible disappointment, and until the late 70s, Ohio State kicked our ass.
I agree you can't go too far out on the limb talking smack. I grew up with primarily MSU fans, and they could torture me when things didn't work out. The 1978 Rose Bowl was the point when I learned the lesson you are learning now.
However, being a UM fan -- being any fan -- is about learning to deal with disappointment. You have had to deal with a particularly bad time these last few years, but that will turn around. When it does, you need to learn not to brag too much in advance with non-Michigan fans (use your judgment) and after the big win, just smile at them.
For everything else (i.e. Wolverine Therepy), stick with the pack. MGoBlog is a great place for that.
And I quote:
"There is nothing in my head today.
Nothing awful there to ponder or confuse..."
I just watched The Hangover (the first one) for the first time.
Pleasantly surprised. I was expecting one of those movies that has that "one joke".
Not gonna lie, they look pretty cool. Hope the game turns out just as good with another M vicotry on the last drive.
I do like them, but nothing official has been released at ND. Not sure what the source of the photo is either
It looks pretty good but the metallic gold seems out of place for throwback.
I imagine it would probably be to help them stand out under the lights but it may just end up being some HS's helmet in the end.
And I thought Michigan throw back stripe sleeves looked horrible. May be it's a joke like our stripe sleeves! It will be funny to see ND play in these helmets.
Welcome aboard Tom Hanks, did you make it back with Wilson?
And how good it is
How much like the books is it?? I've read the ones out thus far, though I expect the show will have to deviate at some point given that it's taken Martin six years to publish A Dance with Dragons.
Deviated a little bit but in a way that works. Its really good
I imagine those savage buckeyes would eat their horses.
I want Tom's job, then I realize I wouldn't last very long with that job because I would have a tough time bottling up high profile recruits telling me they commit.
A Boston Bruins Stanley Cup Championship. I hope it happens. My sports life will be complete.
that is my nightmare
Is your avatar Richard Gasquet? If not, it looks a lot like him.
I always understood the slit experiment. The theories being investigated at CERN and Fermi labs always keep me interested and up at night sometimes, probably has more to do with not being a physics major though.
The same thing I think about every day Pinky!!!
French Open tennis. Hoping my boy Gasquet can upset Djokovic tomorrow morning to end his streak. Also The Big Lebowski.
hopefully this is all we do....
my money on my mind
EDIT: Hmmm...internet amateur hour over here. Oh, well.
How awesome tomorrow will be- Indy 500, Monaco Grand Prix, and the last stage of the Giro d'Italia!
beginning to wonder if Shredder will be having a liveblog tonight or not
Pancakes. That is all.
No really... How do things seen come out from things unseen?
my mom has been diagnosed with incurable brain cancer. A few months. I'm 1/2 way around the world in Korea. Sorry to bring the mood down and all.
My prayers are with you and your family.
The little man has had me in awe for the last 10 months. I have never seen anything like him in any team sport.
This kid isn't the fastest, strongest, or the most agile, but he makes plays all day. Watching him take an INT to the house in the spring game was something that I can't stop re-visiting in my mind. He seems to key and diagnose well, and even when he makes mistakes he is hitting the hole at 100mph. He doesn't shy from contact, and he's the kind of linebacker we haven't had IMHO since David Harris. Go Blue!!!
As always; Land crabs.
Big creepy-ass land crabs.
