|25 weeks 3 days ago||Game went from "This is good." to "Hell yea! Beat down!".||
Was kind of thinking, "You know, I prefer close games" to " Sweet! This is a beat down!!" just when I needed it too. You don't see that too often between these two. In fact, I can't find it at all in my memeory banks. I'm more used to seeing an undertalented Spartan team play us close or to win through pure determination and toughness. Plus, I got to see my daughter ride the zamboni again. They take the shoes now. "No problem daddy! The socks are definitely coming off!" That's my girl!!
|39 weeks 3 days ago||My daughter rode the zamboni during the first intermission||
She threw both shoes and a sock. I was so proud of her.
|51 weeks 11 hours ago||Me too.||
As I jumped out of my seat and exclaimed, "Mgoblog is going to be SO all over this! He might get +4 on UFR for that! This hit will become legend. You just wait!"
Imagine the eye roll I received.
Imagine how quickly I ran to show her this.

Type in Ann Arbor zip code. There are several, but 48103 will work.
The site doesn't tell you who is hiring, but it does give links to the firms with websites. These are your players, outside of the Big 4. You have to sift through a lot, but you might find some regional firms of interest to you.
It will help if you are qualified to sit for the exam and will satisfy the 150 rule in Michigan, which I imagine is a little different than Wisconsin (at least in some small detail). That is something you would surely want to point out in coverletters/resumes being fired accross the lake.

Too bad the Fatburger in southfield went out of business. Too close to the Five Guys, I guess.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Hopslam||
Thank the budget this is only available for very short period and I don't like it that much. I love Bell's and hopsy brew (in general), but Hopslam is a little over the top for me. When I paid $17 for a sixer, I was torn between wanting to love it and wanting to hate it. It turns out I am abivalent, leaning towards too hopsy. Admittedly, I haven't yet tried it on tap. I have tried to brave the long wait for a table at Slowes a few times and to convince the wife to drag the family to Ashley's for dinner a few time recently (both attempts unsucccessful - Slowes food awesome - Ashleys - not so much) . I am really jonesing for Dale's Pale Ale. I can't find this anywhere local Northville area, but had it last summer while visiting friend in Milwaukee.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Perception||
I think the perception of it as a tradition still has some limited cache, but agreed, calling it a "triadition here like none other..." is probably overestimated as selling point.
But...when it happens again!

A mission from God
Go get Scott Loeffler now please
Get Guitar Murphy
|3 years 33 weeks ago||Probably my imagination, but...||
during the BB game, it looked like he was fumbling for the words at the end of the song. I'm not suggesting anything negative. These things happen to the best of us. I'm sure he was very caught up in the moment near the end of the game. Maybe just my imagination anyways.
|3 years 33 weeks ago||Globetrotters were on earlier today.||
I think it's a replay, but I won't spoil it for you by telling you who wins. It was entertaining.
Plus, we are up 4 goals on MSU right now. 2 minutes left in the game. Happiness.

I think most people only feel the conditioning was lacking?
|3 years 34 weeks ago||Partial "blame" for 2008, maybe?||
I don't think Lloyd would have gone 3-9, Mallett or no Mallett. I mean that to be in defence of LC, not a slam against RR. The attrition was real, no doubt, and has been well documented. The cupboard was bare for many reasons, not entirely to be blamed on decline in recruiting under LC. Also, RR cleaned house of some very good position coaches, which I understand was somewhat to be expected. RR is mostly responsible for 2008 (IMHE). He was responsible for the team (as you say), scheme and coaching staff. I applaud RR for his efforts and wish him future success, here or elsewhere. Sure he got more grief than he deserved. No question. But, so did Lloyd.
|3 years 34 weeks ago||I'm not sure what your point is.||
Lloyd didn't abandon the team. He was ready to retire from coaching, so he did. It's not like he went looking for another coaching position.
What exactly are you blaming Lloyd Carr for? It's been three years!
|3 years 35 weeks ago||Crisp Lady!||
Much thanks for the picture of CRISP Lady. It is exactly how I almost remember it. The memory is fuzzy and black and white - at best. Apparently I am not permanently scarred from the process, because I was able to laugh heartily at the picture. The only thing that really pissed me off about the process was that roommates and hallmates who had AP credits from high school got to register ahead of me. My high school did not yet have AP classes at the time, so I got the shaft.
|3 years 49 weeks ago||Cool.||
This is my favorite segment of the show.
Roy seemed to know Michael better than he knows himself (Baby Boy/Batman comments), which is the sign of a true friend. Priceless.
My favorite to date was the Grady Brothers. That one just made me feel warm and fuzzy.

You nailed it.
It's all about the schadenfreude.
|3 years 49 weeks ago||congrats.||
Congratulations on your recent union. Remember these two words "Yes dear" and live by the mantra "happy wife, happy life".
Unfortunately, you will be missing A2 in the prime of it's beauty. The leaves will all be gone by the Wiscy game. However, there is still much wonder to behold and you will definately have a most triumphant time!
Depending on your age, I would agree with Clarkie's post (above) about going to Rick's for a quick stop. There really is no substitute (when you are youngish) for partaking in pitchers of cheap ass beer and listening to great live music. You really never know what band you hear at Rick's might be an eventual big thing. It's always great to duck into Rick's pisser for a quick "boot and rally" from the aforementioned cheap ass beer (did it many times as an undergrad).
If you can still walk after Rick's, head on over to Ashley's (again kudos to Clarkie) to get some REALLY good suds. Between the Stadium, Rick's and Ashleys, you will pick up the campus vibe during the geometry. Don't overplan it. Go with the flow.
|3 years 49 weeks ago||No way.||
The beer can hats rule!
You take that back!

John Navarre is on my wife's un-laminated list.
I shit you not.
It's not laminated.
He overachieved, and I asked no more of him.
|3 years 49 weeks ago||Really?||
It's a dog jumping on your mmmmmmommmmm.
|3 years 49 weeks ago||Yes.||
Remember that time Michigan got destoyed by Terrell Buckley? That was pretty cool.
Remember that time Rocket Ismail beat Michigan single handedly? That was awesome.

|3 years 50 weeks ago||When friends....||
When you are friends with Spartan fans, and you value the friendship, just rememeber that the freindship is more important than his/her comprehension of rational thought.
It's OK even to patronize them sometimes (Don't worry...they won't realize you are patronizing them), if the need arises.

Marge: "Homer, he's not going to get tired. You've got to hit him back. Hit him back!"
Homer: "That cactus is right."
|3 years 50 weeks ago||I don't really care if they are overrated, but..||
I have a healthy fear of Ricky Stanzi right now (all things considered).

|3 years 50 weeks ago||My favorite College Gameday sign ever||
Kansas Football - A tradition since September
|3 years 51 weeks ago||Dale's Pale Ale||
I haven't seen this anywhere in southeast Michigan, but it is superb. I have only see it in a can (?), which adds to it's charm (IMHO). It was all over the place when I visited my friend in Milwaukee. If anyone knows where to get this stuff locally, please do tell.
Anyways, my beer of choice tonight is Patron.

"Lets face it, jets are loud, fast and cool. You are the .01% who don't like them."
Sideshow Bob is the other representative of the .01%. I believe he is not impressed by airshows.

When I run out of Oberon and Two Hearted, I scrummage for cookout leftovers. Tonight's score: Miller Lite and Summer Shandy. That's an upgrade from my last episode, which was warm Pabst in the corner of my garage (RIP uncle Paul).

are awesome. I'm just saying... That would be something I wouldn't hold against OSU fans.
