Another quote that comes to mind:
"When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, 'Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.'" -- Fred Rogers
God bless the helpers today.

Coming from a former journalist... it is unfortunate that the media tends to turn tragedy into 24/7 sensationalistic entertainment, but that has been the trend for years. It's one of the major reasons I left the business.
My heart aches for everyone affected today. Such a horrible thing to go through, on a day that should have been about celebration, achievement and joy. Just sickening.

This team has been crazy fun to watch, and everyone here at MGoBlog has made it all the more enjoyable. Even when I was in the throes of anxiety watching the game last night, I was cracking up at hilarious posts in the liveblog and feeling grateful that I have a place to go to indulge my obsessive fandom. Thanks guys!

Thanks for posting! I didn't think I could get any more proud of the team, but I just did. Classy representatives of the university and admirable human beings. Also, I want to give Stauskas a hug.

The only thing keeping me going at work today is the fact that I get to see penguins this afternoon. Penguins make everything better.

Thanks to the team for representing Michigan with class, determination and guts. This team will always have a special place in my heart. Go Blue!

I'm a bit heartbroken for the team right now, but I'm so proud of them. Go Blue!

SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW!

I picked up a create-your-own six pack with Blue Moon Valencia Grove Amber, Purple Haze, Shock Top End of the World Midnight Wheat, Leinenkugels Summer Shandy & Berry Weiss, and Florida Avenue Blueberry (local brew). I wasn't planning to consume all of them tonight, but really it depends on how the game goes...

Maybe they could read the Tao Te Ching together as they drink their tea.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Maybe a little of both? There||
Maybe a little of both? There are *a lot* of Michigan/Midwestern transplants here in Florida -- people of all ages. Also, I think many FSU fans like Michigan right now simply because they love seeing Florida lose :)

These videos make me feel warm and fuzzy. Go Blue!

I live in Orlando, and when I came into work this morning, I had numerous coworkers who are Florida State fans come up to me and high five/congratulate me on the win yesterday. Haven't been approached by any Gator fans yet, though...

I went to Michigan for undergrad and Syracuse for grad school as well. I like both teams, but I will definitely be cheering for Michigan on Saturday. They're my first love and their time has come!

|21 weeks 6 days ago||Badass.||
So much so that I apparently needed to post it twice. (Sorry)
|22 weeks 3 hours ago||Ha!||
I'm actually a big fan of Cleveland, too. Some cool neighborhoods and great restaurants. But every time I say that to someone, they look at me like I'm crazy.
|22 weeks 4 hours ago||What really got me was the||
What really got me was the list of the different media outlets that reported varying dates of death (and apparently made up a city that doesn't exist... Associated Press, I'm looking at you). Embarassing. It's times like this that make me glad I left the journalism business -- all too often now, it's about sensationalized stories rather than actual news.
|24 weeks 14 hours ago||These highlights made me||
These highlights made me smile and tear up at the same time. I'm still in denial. I don't know what to say, so I'll just say: Thank you Denard, we love you and we'll miss you.
|30 weeks 5 days ago||The Denard haiku makes me||
The Denard haiku makes me teary-eyed, a reaction that may or may not be intensified by the four beers I had at happy hour, but... man, I'm really going to miss watching him play Michigan football. A one-of-a-kind guy, a once-in-a-lifetime player.

I love that Funchess freakin' leaps out of the frame to make that touchdown catch... badass.

I see a lot of missed tackles... what a speedy little roadrunner! I'm glad that she appears to be doing something she loves, and is supported by her coach, team and family. Go Sam!
|32 weeks 1 hour ago||Thank you for the opportunity||
Thank you for the opportunity to contribute. I'm a Michigan alumna now living in Florida, and I've spent a lot of time volunteering with homeless children and low-income families in the Orlando area. I know there is much work to be done... but it's people like you and programs like this one that make a difference and change lives, one step at a time.
Enjoy your visit to the Big House!

That Chantel Jennings article has me sitting in my cubicle wiping away tears. A beautiful story.

I know Denard's injury is serious business (feel better soon, buddy)... but that kitten gif is cracking me up.
|33 weeks 3 days ago||I don't even want to think||
I don't even want to think about next year without Denard. I hope he gets well soon -- our chances to watch him play football in a Michigan uniform are dwindling, and I'll take as many chances as I can get.
