How dignified is dropping an eff bomb on him?

Not even the team?

Sure, we probably shouldn't sing the national anthem either. What in the world does that have to do with a football game? /s

I'm glad you don't know anybody like that, and if you asked the gentleman who wrote the letter, he would probably tell you he wasn't questioning the valor of anyone individually either. But he took the time to write a lengthy diatribe about how it's inappropriate to celebrate the military before a football game. He's welcome to his opinion, but there was no doubt in my mind after reading it that he takes his freedom for granted.

I am with you StephenR, thanks for the post. My son is a Michigan grad and a lieutenant in the USAF - members of the military are always in my prayers.
A recent letter to the editor in The Wolverine questioning the need for Military Appreciation Day at Michigan Stadium was a stark reminder that not everyone values what the men and women of our armed services do each and every day to protect our country and the freedom it stands for - including the freedom to disagree. My son is a brilliant young man who could be doing many other things, and making much more money than he his, with his Michigan Engineering degree, but he chooses to give back to his country.
God Bless America, and Go Blue!

Go back and watch Denard highlights. They are un-effing-believable. Utilized properly, Denard would make ANY college football team better.

Rented a Nissan Rogue last week. Holy cow, what a piece of crap that thing was. Couldn't get out of its own way, and the CVT would run the engine up to 4,000 rpms at the drop of a hat. Everything inside the car screamed "cheap." It had been a long time since I'd driven a Nissan - not impressed.

To be fair, and avoid looking foolish, Rittenberg should have admitted in the article that his sources last year were wrong.

The problem is it's an allegedly serious piece, based on sources that were undeniably wrong on the same point just last year.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Scholarships and current cash||
Scholarships and current cash flow. Probably cost me an average of $1,500 per month x 8 years for the two of them, both in-state at Michigan, and fortunately back to back and not overlapping. The older one started back in 2006 - not sure how the math would work out today, but the scholarships are likely higher too.

I understand the allure of the Tesla, but unless it's purely an "extra" vehicle, I don't see how it's practical. Unless you never need to go on a road trip longer than 250 miles. I think the better solution with today's battery technology carries a backup engine, like a Volt.

I like it! High on the head-turning quotient, and good deals can be had, I understand.

Another interesting option will be the Jeep Wrangler based pickup, codenamed "JT." Scheduled for start of production in September 2018.

You have a long wait. Ford program code P375, not scheduled for production until November 2018.

I have a Canyon with the 4 cyl diesel. Love it - 30 mpg on the highway.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Alfa Romeo Giulia||
I am definitely buying the new Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio whenever it arrives here. Will it be quirky? Yes. Will be it be reliable? Quite possibly no. Will it be entirely unique and a blast to drive? No doubt. 500hp, Ferrari derived engine, and it set a track record for a 4 door sedan at Nurburgring.

If you mean the scenario where there are witnesses who don't corroborate the story, then I'd tend to agree.

For $97k it was probably a good law school and you saw a great return on investment.

OMG, are you effing kidding? If you're stupid enough to take out $100k in loans for a political science degree and you have no plan to turn that into a job that will provide the means to pay back the loans, then that's your own problem, not the university's.

What did GM do, except to support the city for decades?

My two boys played t-ball and maybe a year of coach pitch before they gave it up and started playing lacrosse. I remember how upset the CYO baseball coaches were in 4th/5th grade when many of the best athletes were switching to lax for their spring sport. The growth in youth lacrosse has to have had an impact on baseball.

Playing Crystal Downs Friday but heading out of town on Saturday for the holiday week, otherwise I would definitely consider it.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Never considered Tom Mach to||
Never considered Tom Mach to be a great coach. He's got one style of football and almost no willingness or ability to flex. Can't argue with Mach's success, but I'd say John Herrington is a better high school coach.

C. S. Mott Children's Hospital. Ol' C. S. doesn't own it, he just paid for it. Awesome place, and first employer of my wife, MGoNurse.

People choose a college "just for the eye candy"? Pretty expensive eye candy, why not just hang out at the mall for the next four years?

The 2014 Super Bowl ad for the Maserati Ghibli, which I think was aired once and never again! But I thought it was fantastic.
