For the first game, there will be ample supply on stubhub. You should be able to get tickets at less than face value if you wait until a day or two before the game to purchase them.

More and more impressed with him the more I see/hear. Clearly has strong leadership skills. Great head on his shoulders. Humble. An excellent communicator.
If the offensive line can hold their own, we're going to score a lot of points.

I walked past Lloyd Brady. He nodded at me.

That is a tremendous name.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||ND Women's Hoops Coach Income||
I don't follow women's hoops, so I have no point of reference, but $1,144,000 seems very high for a women's basketball coach. Yes? No?
I'm also 50/50 on whether Caris is sleeping or checking out his phone. I used to work with someone who regularly fell asleep at his desk. I called him out on it a few times, and the response was always the same..."I wasn't sleeping. I was looking at my phone." His best "sleeping at the desk" position was when he fell asleep and the only thing keeping him upright in his chair was that he had his teeth balanced on the top of a water bottle. (yes, I do have a picture of it)

Congrats! Hope they are out of the NICU and in to your home quickly and safely!

Dave and Chuck will probably deliver somewhat similar ratings...at a fraction of D & M's salaries.
Lower cost = increased profit margin.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Vet bills...||
...are crazy. It cost us $1,500 to put our cat to sleep.
I've advised both of my kids to become a vet.
-Pet ownership continues to increase.
-People spoil their pets.
-Can't be replaced by the internet or technology.

...returns from a three-day business (or so she says) trip, so I'll be looking to get some alone/quite time...as part of my recovery from being a single parent for three days.
The recovery should include a few ciders.
Rest of the weekend will be filled with old married guy stuff...kids' soccer games, Birmingham Art Fair, hosting of Mother's Day festivities, etc. Although, we're taking the easy route for Mother's Day and bringing in a deli tray. We'll have some leftovers, so feel free to stop by!

Brutal review in the Wall Street Journal this morning.
I'll be interested to hear the reviews of non-critics...
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Jealous...||
...of your stories. Much like my story re: getting engaged, my "getting in to Michigan" story is pretty lame.
I applied only to Michigan, knowing I'd get in. Sometime in the fall of my senior year in high school, the large envelope arrived.
In retrospect, applying to only one school was - of course - a naive and over-confident choice. Almost thirty years later, I'm still surprised that my parents never forced me to develop a back-up plan.
There was, however, no way this Michigan Man would've attended school in East Lansing. Maybe Wayne State? Fortunately, I never had to think about it.

On a related note, the 1989 UM Grad family is bringing home two kittens today! I will be happy to provide you with pictures to use in future diaries.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Why?||
Why don't you want the media to make him out to be a hero?
There have been probably tens of thousands of gay professional athletes that have come before him...and he's the first to publicly acknowledge his sexuality while still playing the game.
You could debate whether he is a "hero," but we should all applaud his courage and willingness to risk his career.

No announcement. Great highlight video.

Was scheduled to return to the Detroit area from our family trip to Miami. Diverting to ATL for tonight's game!
My focus has been off since we beat Florida.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Wife and Daughter||
...both had Michigan winning the championship. If (when!) Michigan wins, my nine year old daughter will come in 3rd in a 250-person pool. She also had MSU and Ohio losing in the round of 64. "I could never root for them, daddy!"
|10 weeks 3 days ago||I'm going!||
In Miami for a family vacation. Scheduled to come back to DTW on Monday. Diverting to ATL!
|10 weeks 3 days ago||ATL||
On my way from the bar in MIA and getting ready to call Delta to change my flight home to DTW and add in a stop in ATL. Who's with me?!?

Did anyone hear that Coach B celebrated getting to the Sweet Sixteen with subs? Apparently, it was crazy.

|11 weeks 17 hours ago||Spike||
I don't know if any of you were at the exhibition game for which Trey was suspended, but Spike played most of the game and looked really good. 16 pts and 6 assists IIRC. He will be more than capable at PG if Walton isn't ready to start next year.

My kids are growing up there, too!
|11 weeks 20 hours ago||$3||
StubHub had tickets for $3 for Sunday's game...as of Saturday night. Even the best tickets were going for under $100. Assuming this was Kansas fans dumping their tickets and scalpers being left in a low-demand environment.
I'm hoping the same thing holds true for next Monday...assuming we're still playing.
Caveats of paperless ticketing, more excitement for a championship game than a regional final, etc.

My 11 yr old son and I have both worn our Maize Rage tshirts for all four games. We both wish we could be U of M students.

...is the best.
That's a smile born of 35 years of climbing the ranks, doing it the right way, finally being rewarded for his efforts, and having the "he can't get past the Sweet 16" perception lifted.
What a great moment for him.

....here is a copy of one of my many posts from Friday night...
"...screeching like my 9 year old daughter and her friends...watching the game alone in the dark in my family room...drunk on the blue drink I was drinking out of my 20 year old Michigan glass.
I've been on the phone with my 45 year old Michigan grad friends and we're all losing our minds. Between Denard and Trey this is an epic era in Michigan sports.
I'm losing my mind over here."

The weekend we won the championship was also Hash Bash...and the Greatful Dead were in town at Crisler.
Copious amounts of pot and rioting on South U.
