I made that same drive back on Sunday. Horrible! Although we got pretty lucky during the game, and I managed to be standing under the bridge waiting for the train when the deluge began after the game. Still, it was a fun time, and I've already got tix to go back this year.

Franziskaner Weißbier by the bucket at the first German Park of the summer.

Leslie Park had some renovations that went into play last season, entirely on the back 9. Holes 10-13 underwent some pretty major changes, as they re-routed the creek that runs through there. Some nice stone wall additions, a couple bridges here and there, etc. They've shortened #10 (new tee boxes farther forward)... good for me, as that hole is my nemesis. #11 is still a bit unstable after the reno... some areas under repair, a bit messy/muddy after rain. (Too bad... I love this hole.) They also did some stone wall work around the pond on #17. All in all, some nice work with these changes, and overall the course was in pretty darn good shape when I played it last week...especially given the brutal winter we had. I absolutely love the course.
Huron Hills...I've only been playing for 5 years, and there have been no changes during that time. They allow carts now (it used to be a walking-only course, I guess?). And I agree with goblueram... it's kinda a dump, and over-priced (unless you get a deal of some sort).

I only buy them when the jackpot gets up there... at least $100M. But yeah, I still buy them. Can't win if you don't play, right?

Not this time. But about 6 or 7 years ago, I won $10K in the Mega Millions drawing. One more number and it would've been $192M. That plagued my first waking thoughts every morning for about a month until I got over it. But $10K was sure nice. I screamed. A lot.

Ahh, gotcha. $70 is exactly what it cost me last year (through my friend's NW alum assoc deal). I think it's a little pricey, too... but it's a good time, so I'm sure I'll go again one way or another. Thanks for the reply!
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Question||
Hey... how did you get your tix for NW? When I renewed my season tix, there was info that said available away games would be offered on a priorty points basis (like most things), and that those with lower point totals (that'd be me, although I'm not rock bottom or anything) would be offered in May, if available. I never saw anything else about it. Just curious... I went last year using tix a friend and NW alum purchased, and Ryan Field wasn't anywhere close to filled. Was hoping to purchase them on my own through UMAD this year.

Ditto that. I've seen SR live in concert six times. The time I saw them in Toronto several years back, they played Festival and blasted confetti out into the audience. That show was pure magic.

FYI... the corner sections are oddly shaped and get wider as you go up. I sit almost at the top of section 18 (which is almost, but not quite, in the SW corner). The aisle there goes between seats 24 and 25.

So did I, after dismissing Major League Baseball recruiting for not making any sense at all.

It's Friday and I'm going to Ashley's after work. Beer. Beer. And then probably more BEER.

They've changed it. When I click the link it says "...competitors like the Penn State Nittany Lions and newly arrived Maryland Terrapins..."
Eh, same difference.

I wondered if anyone would post about this. I laughed. And then she blew a final jeopardy that was, frankly, a gimme. So I laughed again.

East Carolina University... Go Pirates! Did my undergrad there and grad at Michigan. If those two ever meet in football I don't honestly know who I'll root for.

|25 weeks 4 days ago||Ski Jumping is definitely my||
Ski Jumping is definitely my favorite, but unfortunately it doesn't get nearly enough TV coverage (at least not on NBC) because the U.S. rarely has a team, let alone any medal contenders. Hmmm... wonder if I can stream Finnish TV somehow...
Also love the various sledding sports...luge, bobsled, skeleton.
A lot of the winter sports are pretty terrifying, but I think the one that makes me hold my breath the most is the aerials portion of freestyle skiing. Those fools are one wrong move from lifelong paralysis or death.

I was in Innsbruck (last hosted Olympics in 1976) back in 2007 and the thing I most wanted to see was their Olympic Ski jump. I didn't get terribly close to it, but it could be seen pretty well from where I stood. Impressive for sure.
