If I recall correctly from my Cold War-Era youth it is "Thermo Nuclear". Nobody worries about that anymore, eh?

|4 weeks 5 days ago||Assing||
I seem to recall in the 80s or 90s the MSU band got in trouble for a hazing practice called "assing". Study it out.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||I'm a man. I'm 40 and a UM||
I'm a man. I'm 40 and a UM alum and fan for the last 34 years. I remember as a kid hearing the SP score being announced at the game and people sort of mock cheering but as time has gone on I don't recall this really getting much of a reaction anymore. However, I haven't been to a game in seven years so perhaps the kids have latched onto it in a fit of hipster irony.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||No||
I think the whole Slippery Rock connection is something only meaningful to those over 50. Unless they are going to have UM players signing memorabilia for middleaged dudes to sell on eBay I can't see this game pulling more people than Fan Day.

Chobani is one of the worst of the Greek yogurts IMHO. I find it thin and watery and it displeases me. My wife keeps buying it so I keep eating it because I don't know any better.

Who cares what the neighbors think? Unless they moved there in 1920 they knew what they were getting into and have profited from it.
However, I'm not a fan of the fireworks thing. It is just one more small step towards making a generic fan experience that I can get down in Toledo going to a Mud Hens game on a Saturday night for 1/10 the cost.
Skywriting, The Noodle, Rawk Muzak, Beyonce, Fireworks, etc...none of them make the product on the field any more palatable and justify the massive ticket prices charged. In fact, I feel they are intentionally distracting us from how awful the actual product is compared to the price of admission.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Fightn' and Drankn'||
Ha! My roomate who went with us (and peruses this board and may even see this) always wanted to start fights with people when we were drinking. The problem we had that day is we blew all our money on the trip to get there. We were used to $2 pitchers at Mitch's. When we ran into the tourist-prices charged at PIB we couldn't come close to buying enough liquid courage to start a fight.

I remember the first (and only) time I went to Put In Bay when I was an undergrad. It was the first time I'd seen people over the age of 40 getting drunk and puking all over the place. They puked in the bars, in the bushes, on the boat on the way back. It felt like I was at a frat party with AARP.
Now that I'm 40 I have no desire whatsoever to do that. Life is cruel.

It got me to click. He used the one weird trick they teach in online journalism school.

Jesus may have stolen a scooter, but he also built my hot rod.

I think it is hilarious they are showing repeated shots of the train tracks and trying to make the area look badass. It is an office park in Plymouth Township, really on the edge of a wealthy suburb.
I wish they showed more of the workouts to get an appreciation for what the approach is and really see how much harder the pros have to work compared to the average MGoBloggers down at Vic Tanny.

Per tradition I ran the Ann Arbor Firecracker 5K this morning. This time with my son for the first time. An awesome experience.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Something is going on right now||
I ran past the stadium this morning around 6:30am and they had football highlights on the big screen and I could hear what sounded like a bunch of dudes inside doing some kind of drill. So is that summer conditioning or maybe just a Corporate Fantasy Bootcamp for CEOs renting the stadium for their Special Event?

With a name like that he is sure to lead us to Football Valhalla. What?
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Dundee = The Big City||
A few years ago I was in a band that played a few weekend gigs at a bar in Petersburg, which is off US23 a bit north of the Ohio border. The town is in the middle of nowhere and at the end of each night a big crowd always seemed to show up around 12:30am.
Finally I got the courage to ask these locals where they were coming from at this time of night and they said they "just got back from the big city!".
"Detroit?" I asked.
So, as I learned that night it's all relative.

Unfortunate that we see a bottle of vodak in the background of the funny cat picture.

"Stauskas but athletic"? You are either Fred Jackson or selling Nick very short. Cumong man!

You don't get a full ride to UM on a chess scholarship! Better start saving now.

|15 weeks 2 days ago||The games will still be on TV||
The games will still be on TV right? Thanks to Jim Delaney I have BTN on my television so I can see every game against every tomato can that ESPN and ABC would treat as ratings death. This way I don't need to make the short walk down the street to the stadium AND I save thousands of dollars a year AND I don't have to put up with all the bullsh!t of the Wow Experience during the game.
Personally I love Jim Delaney for this reason. I am selfish.

Seth, I'm not sure you should be painting in sunlight either. I've had paint bubble up on me when the sun heated it too much or it dries way too fast and gets gummy ending up with a weird texture.
Painting sucks! Good luck to you.

I'm not sure what is going on here but I didn't drink last night and I feel great! Well, off to take the kids to swim lessons and soccer!!
