I can't wait to see that dunk in One Frame At A Time.

I'm glad Pedo State and penis face lost. I don't care as much about the B1G's image as I do about psu losing every game they play.

Not surprisingly the BTN streaming service is still a steaming pile of shit. Zero improvements over the years.

The program is being run by the Athletic Department, it is quite simple and painless. You just log into your account and "return" the tickets, even if you have received them in the mail; the Department has a "donation" box checked in already, so no chance to mess it up. Your printed tickets become invalid and new tickets are issued to the recipients.
|29 weeks 3 days ago||I just called||
the AAUM and was told they are completely sold out. I did not receive the email either, I've been a Life member for a while.
I was given an email address to express my disappointment and did so. Do they now know how many Life members there are? Why would they allow two shirts per member if they can't provide one to each member???
This tee shirt deal feels like it was planned by Dave Brandon.

For sure the worst drivers are in Texas. I used to live in Austin and now I come to summer "vacations" north of Houston. I'm surprised there are still people alive here, I saw one major accident per day over our first week here. The most common things:
- Driving slowly on the left lane and not using the right lane.
- Texting while on the move.
- Crossing lanes suddenly.
- Not checkng blind spots.
It doesn't help that construction projects here take forever to be completed.
Without a doubt, the best US drivers are in Michigan.

I hate that they keep on killing the dire wolves. Now only Ghost and Arya's are alive, the latter lost somewhere. I think they're cooler than dragons. They could've shown Rikkon and proved his identity by showing the dire wolf in a cage. Oh well

I'm looking forward to the next 5 years of outstanding interviews and song parodies.

As a father, I cannot imagine the pain of such loss. The mere thought brings tears to my eyes. My condolences to the Carr family.

Those fuckers ran out of luck. I hope they now STFU. Eor Dantoni can suck it.

Maybe we could ask Dave Brandon to help bring the WOW effect to the blog.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Bangkok||
I happen to live in Bangkok and this is what I do:
If you happen to be a UM alum, the university provides a free VPN service for alumni and retirees, which is the fastest VPN service out there; find it and install it on your laptop (it will not work on mobile devices, AFAIK). If you're not, just hire a vpn service for a month (but make sure you configure EVERYTHING before leaving the US), I believe you can get 1-month service for about $5 (or use the free trial if possible). I'd recommend strong VPN. Tunnel bear works, but not always and is not as fast as strong VPN, but it is simple to install and there's a free version. Maybe get both?
If you have cable (which, who doesn't?), make sure you have your provider's login credentials handy. The game will be on ABC/ESPN, so you can log into their web site (ESPN3) and "activate" your device (if you're watching on an ipad) or log in directly into their site with your laptop.
Most properties now have different "tiers" of internet service in South East Asia. Make sure you buy the fastest, it usually runs up to $50. I'm not sure what the Hilton does.
I'll be traveling, otherwise I wouldn't mind hosting a game viewing party.
You're lucky the game is not on BTN. As I indicated on a previous post, that is a piece of dog shit. Runny dog shit.

I have been unfortunately forced to be a BTN2Go International customer for the last three years because of where I live. What a steaming piece of piece of shit. For 5 minutes of the game I had to look at their stupid blue screen.

It's just past 1:00 am here in Bangkok and I've been drinking for a while. Is this really happening??

I'm not sure that we are at a point where we can say having msu and osu at home is a "good" year. *sigh*
Hopefully Señor Harbaugh will change that.
|2 years 32 weeks ago||'97 vs OSU||
'97 vs OSU was the last game I attended as a student. It was pretty chilly but we kept warm by pouring some cinammon schnaps into our hot chocolate. There were some old(er) dudes with rubber Michgan helmets going NUTS next to us, and made the whole experience much more entertaining. The chants of "Heisman" and "Boston" were so sweet. I still have the stub and a copy of the Michgan Daily from the day after the game somewhere. Good times.
I live way too far to attend more than one game per year, but I have been lucky to have attended both UTLs vs. Notre Dame at Michigan stadium. Both games have been amazing, albeit the experience has been vastly different. 2011 was just the sort of thing that aggravates my heartburn, but worth it at the end.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||Nickname||
Yeah, I immediately thought he should be nicknamed Luis "El Perro" Suarez, but that would be denigrating to all well-behaved dogs.
Pre-match prep against Uruguay is going to have to include tetanus shots now.

That was great, but now I have coffee all over my shirt.

Fuck. It's been over three hours after the game and I still have heartburn.
