Most of these have probably been repeated, but they are repeating:
1. Grand Rapids is Beer City, USA. There are lots and lots and lots of microbreweries through the city and along West Michigan.
2. Proximity to Lake Michigan. I do not go near as much as I should, BUT the state parks in Holland and Grand Haven are gorgeous. Depending on where you live in Grand Rapids, they are about an hour tops.
3. Proximity to Ann Arbor. I mean, it is not as close living on the east side, but 2 to 2.5 hours is not bad for going to the football games. Closer than Arizona. If driving is not your thing, the U of M Club of Grand Rapids works a local bus company to have buses to take you to the home games.
4. Solid schooling systems. I went to Hudsonville High School (~15 minutes away from GR) which was a pretty solid HS education and the rest throughout the area (there are some duds however) seem quite solid. A lot of GR kids end up applying and going to Michigan as well.

One of two silver linings of going to Michigan from 2008 to 2012 was having to recalibrate expectations the entire time I was there (the other being able to watch denard in person while it was affordable). It really put into perspective how nice even the run during the early-mid aughts was (3 Rose Bowls in 4 years).
However, the same cannot be said for basketball. Expectations be too damn high now.

Miggy has already got a WS title, with the Marlins in '03. Totally okay with him winning another in Detroit though.

technically, ohio will win the leaders division this year, so division titles are not worth very much since neither of us could win the B1G. i kinda hope wisconsin wins the CCG just so the conference champ didn't win their division

didn't read the original post, but as someone who's dealt with anxiety, depression, and all that follow, it really does get better. recommend seeking help if you can, been meeting with a social worker for almost 2 months and it's helped tremendously. e-mail is email@example.com if you ever need anything. go blue and beat ohio

whoa, someone else from Hudsonville! those two are definitely the biggest. my dad went to HS with John Vander Wal (i think John was two grades below him).

Tradition or not, the Crisler concourse needed an upgrade from dungeon settings.

Once people start cutting off their legs to replace them with carbon fiber prosthetics, then it will be an unfair advantage.

It's mathematically impossible in a best of 3, 5, or 7 series for one team to have 2 more home games than the other team.

|3 years 3 weeks ago||no chills||
Definitely didn't get chills from hearing that song at the end of the game because I'm pretty sure I was yelling something along the lines, " NOOOOOOOOO DEAR GOD WHY". We already have a song made for that moment called "The Victors".
In terms of OP, good for Mike Martin, but it doesn't change my opinion on the song or band.

Just caved in and made a bracket even though I said I wouldn't this year, but a lady in the dude offered me a bracket so I couldn't say no. C'mon UNC-Asheville!

People were also changing the titles, so I have at least 25 different e-mails with threads in most of them. The Craig James and Hoke e-mails were cool, but most of them were *insert something i think is funny but no one else will*

Here is Rick Reilly's take: http://espn.go.com/espn/story/_/id/7492873/rick-reilly-paterno-true-legacy
He did good things, and he did bad things.
In all honesty, I'm shocked at how everyone feels the need to piss on his grave. He at least deserves a day to be remembered as a human and for his whole body of work to show. The fact that most of these comments are "I AGREE BRIAN" and "HOW COULD ARGUE IN DEFENSE OF HIM" is absurd and beyond judgmental. Who are you to say JoePa was a terrible man based one action? Shame on you.
Not one of your better pieces, Brian. Too much being an angry dick and beating of dead horses.
