Looking for 2 tickets to the Indiana/Michigan 11/1/14 game. Preferably nothing about row 70.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||Thank you||
Thank you for that wonderful Christmas gift.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||Swag||
Random question -- If a team advances to the NC game, do their players received twice the swag? I mean, everybody needs 2 PS4s.

... is sure to set the record for weight of a B1G defensive back... 305!!
Freshman 15, my ass.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||Unfortunately, compliance||
Unfortunately, compliance buyouts that impact this upcoming season's cap number had to be announced by July 1st. Now, any compliance buyout will apply towards the following season. Thus, the only way to bring the Wings under the cap is to make a trade/salary dump, or put some waivers-free players in the minors -- namely Dekeyser and Nyquist. I don't like the latter option, but the former requires other teams to be interested in Sammy, Bert, or most likely, Tootoo.
|2 years 5 weeks ago||I feel for you||
I'm a 2008 MLaw grad. It's a tough market out there for baby lawyers. Do you have any personal connections in private practice? Now is the time to cash in any chips you might have. Also, I'd recommend looking for job postings in state bar associations' webpages. Generally, they have a number of firm positions that aren't on Symplicity. If you find a posting that appears promising, see if there is an alum at the firm and reach out to them instead of blindly submitting application materials to recruiting coordinators. Your resume will carry a lot more weight with the powers that be in a firm if they get it from an attorney already working for them. It does work. In fact, it's how I found my current position.
Best of luck in your search.

|3 years 1 week ago||Weber Deal||
It screws Nashville because much of the cap hit is tied up in bonuses. The contract has bonuses of $13 million the first two years, with a salary of $1 million... so, in the first two years, Nashville will have to find $28 million for Weber's services. It's a lot for a small market team. Soooo, yeah, smart move by Philly. Really puts the pressure on Nashville. Oh, and if Nashville matches, they can't trade Weber until the end of next season, per the CBA, so they will have to pay ~ $27 million for one year of his services prior to trading him. It's rough for the Preds.

Really wish the Lions would have taken a shot in the endzone there. Rush up the middle accomplished nothing. An incomplete pass and FG would have taken the clock past the 2 minute warning, so I am not sure why they didn't take the shot to ice the ballgame. Poor decision, IMO.

Though I agree with your sentiment, I think the Tigers took a crap-ton of catchers in last year's draft.

I second the Uptown recommendation. I have lived here for a few years now (currently have a house in a suburb). Also, there are a lot of young people living on and near Grand Avenue in St. Paul. Like Uptown, that Grand area has a lot of restaurants and bars. Another nice place is the Warehouse District, which has a wide selection of condos and townhomes, if you are buying, though you can also find units to rent. Oh, and as for Uptown, you can also look at apartment units near Lake Calhoun and Lake of the Isles. Those are very nice areas with great "scenery"

Glad the Wings battled to the end. Sad to see that injuries ravaged the top 6.
Changes should be coming. Hopefully Lidstrom comes back and some new blood is brought in. GO WINGS!

The Red Wings make me drink heavily.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||Great organization||
As a friend of IC employees, I echo the OP's sentiments. IC is an incredible group that does a ton of good. If you haven't seen the original documentary, do so. Moreover, the videos that accompany bracelet sales are very well done. They portray the stories of different children that have been affected by the war, from young girls who were raped, became pregnant, and now have HIV, to small children who have lost both of their parents and now must take care of their younger siblings.
Gut wrenching, but important to see. Thanks for posting.

Just got back from the game.... fucking ridiculous!!
Tons of NoDak fans as expected. Hunwick was unreal, as was Merrill. Merrill is clearly the best player on the ice. He dominated the SIoux forwards.
Time to rustle up some championship game tickets!
|4 years 16 weeks ago||Why?||
"Of course, I typed all of that out to ensure it doesn't happen.
I feel good about this game."
So why did you type that out?? :-)

Depends on if UM-Duluth makes it. There will be less available tix than if Notre Dame gets lucky.
Also, scalping is legal in Minnesota, so there will always be tix available on the street.
|4 years 16 weeks ago||Hmmm. while I like your||
Hmmm. while I like your optimism, I disagree with your assessment of Dell. Statistically, he is the best goalie in the Frozen Four (Hunwick is second) and he just broke Ed Belfour's NoDak record for wins in a season. He has a sub-2.00 GAA and a save percentage approaching .930 -- he is legit.
Still, you are correct, any goalie can have an off night, and it is hard for a team to overcome that.
|4 years 16 weeks ago||Sonds like fun||
Unfortunately, I will not be able to make it to that get together. As a side note, be prepared to be overwhelmed by NoDak fans. They have a big fan contingency in the Cities and travel well because, let's face it, there is nothing else to root for in North Dakota. (See Nebraska Syndrome).

Funny thing is, my firm worked on that case. Gotta love violations of the Mann Act.

The sad thing is they can get away with charging that this year. North Dakota fans will flood (zing!) St. Paul for the games, and Minnesota-Duluth will have a nice turnout, too. Nothing like last year's event.

|4 years 18 weeks ago||1. I make the drive from||
1. I make the drive from Minneapolis to Port Huron at least once a year. I agree with the poster saying to skip Chicago. It makes sense.
2. Cheaper flights can be found from Grand Rapids or Kzoo to MSP through Midwest Airlines. There will be a stop in Milwaukee, but they are usually pretty competitively priced. Also, not sure if Sun Country Airlines serves Michigan yet, but if you are looking at traveling from another locale, it may be worth checking the Sun Country website out. They are based in MN and have great fares, for sure to FL, where I go visit my folks.
3. There are plenty of affordabe hotel options outside of the downtowns. A good place to look is in Bloomington by the Mall of America.
4. I've taken greyhound before... I would not recommend it.
5. Scalping is legal in MN, so there will be tickets on the street for sale.
|4 years 18 weeks ago||I live in Minneapolis. I am||
I live in Minneapolis. I am definitely getting tickets, hopefully from my firm.
Since UM-Duluth made it, and assuming NoDak makes it, there will be a lot of fans from those schools looking for tickets, too. Fair deals might be scarce.

Could turn into an absolute beast with a redshirt and a year on the bench (two years of S&C)... if he improves his foot speed and pad level, he will be a load to deal with.
Fred Jackson would likely describe him as possessing Tyrone Wheatley's strength, Justin Fargas' speed, and Chris Perry's hands -- with the chance to turn into a Marshall Faulk-type all-purpose back.
|4 years 27 weeks ago||Well said. I agree with||
Well said. I agree with everything, except I do think Darius Morris is great compared to other similar position players that aren't his teammates. He just looks that much better given his teammates... he would still be putting up solid numbers on most, if not all, other Big 10 teams.

This interview highlights some of the anti-RichRod venom that existed with older alumni. 30 yards and a cloud of dust offense?? Yes, please. Notably, Hoke came right out and said we would run a pro-style offense. I really, really, really hope he doesn't under-utilize the phenomenal talent he has in Denard. It's likely that under the Hoke regime, after Gardner and D-Rob are gone, we will no longer see the mobile, dilithium infused quarterbacks that we now enjoy.

Though I agree Rich Rod had to go, DB screwed the pooch with his poor timing on making the decision. The class is going to be rounded out with MAC-level recruits... not the top-tier blue chips we desperately need.

JMFJ is a MICHIGAN MAN!

|5 years 11 weeks ago||This is really targeted at||
This is really targeted at people who purchase used games. In fact, it was in effect this year for Madden 10 -- where if you purchased a used copy of the game, the activation code in the booklet wouldn't work and players were forced to purchase a code to participate in an online league.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||I don't believe that function||
I don't believe that function is available in Madden 10, but it could be in Madden 11. What the league would offer you and your brother is the chance to participate in the same online franchise, including smack talking on the forum (if that is desirable). In addition, you could choose to be teams in the same division (so you could play eachother at least twice a season) or, be in difference conferences (to minimalize the chances of having to play one another).
|5 years 11 weeks ago||Cowboys, Bears, Packers,||
Cowboys, Bears, Packers, Rams, Texans, Ravens, and Redskins are also available. Currently we are at 17 active owners. To join please create an account at the website and post your team selection in a thread along with your PSN info for the invite.
EDIT: It is also worth noting that taking a team in the Madden 10 league secures that same team for you in the Madden 11 league.

Well, it seems as if the Tigers are still without a legit closer. Fantastic. Way to crap the bed and squander a victory, guys.

J-Ver getting hit... Tigers not hitting... KC beating us... unreasonable fear running rampant... the season is lost.

Miami's Dmen are so aggressive in the offensive zone.... Red needs to take advantage of that.
|5 years 18 weeks ago||2nd Period||
That was the best 20 minutes of hockey I have seen the Wings play this year. (Missed the game vs. Chicago)
Unfortunately, Cleary aggravated his groin injury and Lilly-pads is getting pwned out there.

|5 years 19 weeks ago||Flip looks like a squirt||
Flip looks like a squirt house player on the ice whenever he gets the puck in front of the other team's net. Seriously, what a piss poor showing on his part.
Wings need to take over the 3rd and get out of there with 2 points. Calgary was taking it to SJ last time I checked. A Wings loss with a Flames win puts us in 9th.
|5 years 29 weeks ago||USA 2 for 2||
It should be noted that the U.S. team also won the U-17 World Junior Championship. Things are looking good for USA Hockey!
Chances that USA's men's Olympic team makes it 3 for 3? Ehhhhh, not so good.

Now I'm curious.
|5 years 38 weeks ago||Good Game||
I was at this one tonight... I wanted to see the new stadium and came into some free tix.
Have to say the stadium is really nice and that the game was very entertaining with a lot of big plays and nice hitting.

Say goodbye to Calvin Johnson or a boatload of draft picks.
|5 years 40 weeks ago||The article doesn't mention||
The article doesn't mention if it is powder cocaine (cocaine base) or crack. Hopefully, for Feagin's sake, it is only base, as the Sentencing Guidelines more vehemently punish crack offenses.
More useless knowledge from law school. Huzzah.
|5 years 40 weeks ago||I think the Wings could||
I think the Wings could possibly lose the Central, but there is almost no chance they miss the playoffs entirely.
|5 years 42 weeks ago||I think the Wings should||
I think the Wings should seriously consider bringing Shanny back to replace Franzen on the PP.
He'd be cheap and a stopgap measure for this season.
|5 years 42 weeks ago||This fucking kills. There||
This fucking kills. There is no way it can be a complete tear if he is expected back in 4 months. I tore my ACL in my teens and was out 9 months before I was even close to 100%. Wings can't catch a break this year... fuck.

I live in Minneapolis and am going to the game tomorrow, too. Yay for firm box seats! lol GO TIGERS!!
|5 years 42 weeks ago||Good Food||
1) I agree with Maxwell's.... their burgers are decent, but I would recommend the homemade Mac N' Cheese w/chicken and the cheese fries with flavored sour cream. Friggin amazing.
2) Bulldog has really good Kobe beef burgers... lil' pricier, but good nonetheless.
3) I am a big fan of Bullwinkles in Seven Corners (on Washington Ave), they have great garlic burgers, where they hand make patties and put garlic, black pepper, and onions in the beef... the beer is pretty cheap and they have free popcorn. nnGet your burger with tator tots, yum. I frequented the place a lot in law school and grew to love it.
4) Townhall Brewery in Seven Corners. A local brewpub with really good food. Goat cheese nachos are awesome, mashed potato pizza is awesome, black n' blue burger is awesome (blue cheese), and the microbrew beer is great. I suggest the Oatmeal Stout beer... it's unreal. Also, it's across the street from Bullwinkle's, and within walking distance of the Dome.
|5 years 42 weeks ago||Too early to get on the Wings||
Too early to get on the Wings case.... remember them losing to Toronto of all teams last year on opening night? That was bad, and things still worked out alright.
Wolverines loss... hurt
Let's Go Honolulu Blue and Silver!!

Wings got worked in the 2nd period. St. Louis owned them on the boards and Ozzy was, as he usually is in the regular season, a liability in net.
