I recently talked to a local kid who was a recent B1G heavyweight wrestling champ (MSU) who was headed to NASCAR pit crew. He said they hire mostly D1 athletes.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Saw Hibbets play||
Went to the Hudsonville vs Muskegon playoff game since it was local, and to check out Deyonta Davis. Didn't know Hibbits, but noticed him quickly. While Davis is obviously an elite recruit, what a contrast in effort and character. Davis loafed like crazy and just waited for a chance to show his skills. Hibbets hustled his ass off and played really well in all aspects of the game (and led the way to quadruple overtime), while Davis fouled out on a technical (slammed the ball and complained after being called for another foul). I'm not delusional - I know Davis is an All-American, but Hibbits sure looks like the kind of player that could thrive under Beilein and staff.

Was doing paperwork at my office in Holland and thought a tree fell on the other side of the building. First one I've felt since one cracked our toilet in half as a kid in Montana.
|12 weeks 1 hour ago||Of course the mother's||
Of course the mother's position is absurd, but do we really need to judge her so harshly? Greedy people almost always come form a history of deprivation, of one kind or another.
|21 weeks 6 days ago||Because||
Because each day is proportionally smaller relative to your total experience.

concert in 1977, featuring Bob Seeger and the Silver Bullet Band, Peter Frampton, Rick Derringer, and UFO. It was hot though.

And getting started on the Anti-Hero.

Checking in at the beautiful Skokie Holiday Inn, ready to start the tailgate early.

I'm fascinated with the concept of "literal visualization".

It looks like the state of Michigan has a large tumor right in the middle.
|39 weeks 6 days ago||Be there. Taking my son||
Be there. Taking my son again. After all the groaning and gnashing of teeth, it's still Michigan football, it's still the Big House, and the sun will be shining!

My wife had to yell Go Blue at the large group of Wisconsin fans that walked in. They were super friendly, all asking where the parents section is because one was Gasser's dad. They were great sports and shared their brown ale pitchers. Makes it a little harder to hate Wiscy.

Watched Hope destroy Albion to take sole possession of 1st place.

exactly their specified age, too!

will be champions.
|1 year 46 weeks ago||Yep -||
At this moment my 14 yo son is in the middle of his first 2-a-day ever. I believe he is running his ass off in the pouring rain as we speak. Oh, to be young again and not have to live off ibuprofen!
|1 year 46 weeks ago||I thought the same thing||
I thought the same thing after watching those clips. The bright side - they are going to need his ability to create something from nothing more than ever.

A couple of White Hatters from the tap at New Holland.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||Oh man||
Oh man, was that a great read! Not sure I've ever read such straightforward unfiltered info from a coach. You clearly have established a solid relationship with Borges that will pay off for all of us.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||I believe||
that money had been earmarked for Tebow.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Well,||
writers who go to SEC schools, probably.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||Its hotter down in FL||
Matter expands in heat. Denard is bigger. (Yes this even applies to Dilithium)
|2 years 12 weeks ago||You're||
compounding the problem.
|2 years 13 weeks ago||I'm just||
waking up in the hospital. What happened?
|2 years 14 weeks ago||I am completely||
shocked, but not surprised. He's a really good coach who sucks at coaching. He's done great recruiting for the guys he's landed, but has completely failed with the guys he's missed on. His in game adjustments have been great when they win, but are horrible when they lose. He's either going to move up to a better school, or drop down a level.

I'm gonna sleep like a baby after that draining game and this fine brew.
|2 years 18 weeks ago||Flubber.||

for Lord of the Flies reference.
|2 years 38 weeks ago||Yep,||
With wife and son. She likes this way better than Wife Day!
