Only saw this mentioned once amid all the fine choices... but Forcier to Matthews to beat ND and give us one of the precious few happy moments in a long period of horribleness. I made Forcier my avatar that day and haven't changed it since.

I hope not. Stay in Detroit forever, please.

That would be about right if it's same time as last year. Thanks.

I've had a shitty week. Which is why I'm glad I save these. I have two left after this one. One goes into storage to age til next year. Eagerly awaiting the announcement of the 2016 release dates. Come ON Founders....stop keeping us in the dark!

Strictly Ballroom is an outstanding choice. Great movie.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Two of 'em...||
If I run into either one on cable, always seems I get stuck watching 'til the end.

The "K" in K. Davis has a separate link to the hello post for Matt Falcon.

One word for you, Jake Rudock:

I have to work a half day, so I get to leave at 1:00. So please only neg me by half-points.

Oh yeah. Parker's BBQ FTW.

Is someone cutting onions in my office right now? Geez...
All the best to you, Spike. I will really miss yelling "SPIIIIKE!!" every time a game-changing three pointer left your fingertips.

As both an ECU and UM alum, I'd be happy for him to come to Michigan. That said, I'd be willing to bet Ruff's phone was burning up for possible HC jobs elsewhere the minute ECU's AD made the most bonehead move in the history of the program.

I don't know... maybe because Harbaugh hired him as DC at Stanford, but he opted for the ECU HC job instead? Oh look, we need a DC....

JBE... logged on just to upvote you. I usually say it a different way (see my signature below), but I like your wording better. +1000.

I'm closing in on 30 years a Michigan fan and that is still my favorite performance by any player in any year since. The crowd roared every time his spectacular name was called.

Except that FSU is (was) #9, undefeated, with a clear chance to make the playoffs... until they lost to an unranked team with a losing record. As much as I'm still feeling last week's shock, FSU suffered more damage tonight.

Zero sympathy for FSU. Grateful to GT for getting us out of the headlines.

K. Maybe Guinness, since I've got a couple of those in the fridge.

I have to believe this would be an outstanding use for Atwater Vanilla Java Porter, no?

You might go ahead and crack open that 2012 KBS. Someone pretty knowledgeable about aging these bourbon barrel beers once told me that 2-3 years is the max before it starts going bad.
I have one left from 2014, and six (count 'em!) still from 2015 which will be saved for the Ohio State game tailgating.
|22 weeks 2 days ago||I've only been to two||
I've only been to two (although I aim to change that!).... both the last two Northwestern games in Evanston. They were both horrible displays of comedy. #M00N
|23 weeks 6 days ago||ECU||
Went there for undergrad. They were pretty bad in football while I was there (much better now!) and they've never been good in basketball. But I love 'em just the same.
|24 weeks 2 days ago||Cucurbita Smiles||
I've never been a big pumpkin beer fan, BUT...
Wolverine State Brewing's version, called Cucurbita Smiles, is so delicious that I brought growlers of it to two different tailgates last year. Super tasty, crisp and clean, not too sweet.

I knew it was a longshot anyway, but I've always thought it would be really cool if a player from my high school in my tiny hometown wound up at Michigan. Even cooler when it's someone who has the same first name as me. Just not meant to be. Sigh.
Happy trails, J Smith. Best of luck to you at UNC.
