to play football, not to play trumpet

One of my favorites, but I have trouble finding it around here. Usually find some about every 3-4 months. I need to just break down and take a road trip to Munster.

Gumballhead or Alpha King or both. Probably both.

that will ruin your day. At least for another 10 months, I guess. Bang those ballz!

Probably shouldn't make long term plans to be in West Lafayette.

Still think that's a great name for a linebacker and, sure enough, the kid is a LB. Unfortunately, a Wisconsin legacy.
|1 day 16 hours ago||I like cheap gas, but...||
it's a fleeting thing. Demand will grow as China, India and other developing countries grow their car owning population. So, cheap gas now won't change my car buying habits. I look for the most efficient car I can find in the class of car I need. We'll be buying a new compact SUV this year. I need something that can tow a boat and I'm not a truck kind of guy. I don't need a big SUV given the kids are grown up and out of here. Gas mileage will be part of the purchasing equation, then again, the automakers have improved gas mileage in SUVs overall as they strive to meet federal mileage requirements for their fleets.

like a first class disruptor on the D line. Michigan hasn't had one of these in a while. But, when we did, we rode some awesome D to a National Championship as I recall. Oh boy! I can hardly wait. Don Brown has to be the happiest DC in all of college football. He's got some great new toys to destroy the opposition.

Given the state of the OL, these 2 guys have to be "hits" and not misses. It will be interesting to see if Spanellis can excel at his size. If he's a hit, then we'll be power running the ball down everyone's throats with him and Onwenu. I look forward to that.

Beats a boring press conference rundown on the recruits. Every kid got a chance to shine and get some love.
Lots of Michigan star power on display. Brandon Peters probably enjoyed getting face time with Tom Brady. Ric Flair was pretty funny.
Lou Holtz was very good. Probably won't be welcome in South Bend after this. Too bad they didn't get Holtz on camera attempting to sing the Victors.

Time to drink.

with much banging!

You know the athletic department wants to market Michigan football because it pays the bills and it's great that all funds from the event can be used for #chadtough. Wraps things up in a nice neat package. How can you bad mouth an event for charity? Advantage Harbaugh.
|3 days 18 hours ago||It was pretty obvious to me...||
that Signing with the Stars was all about marketing. Think about it. He's giving every kid on the team a "hat dance" moment, not just the five stars. He's brought in a celebrity cast to draw attention to the event and make it interesting for the kids. Tom Brady, Desmond, Jetter! Yes, he's making Michigan the cool program and I love it.

Getting ready for my Foundations of Craft Brewing class in the evening.

|1 week 11 hours ago||I'm with you in spirit||
but have about an hour drive to dinner tonight, so waiting until the wife and I get to the restaurant...in London...Ontario.
I'll be offered a variety of Canadian beers. It cracks me up that the wait staff describe Goose Island Honkers Ale as "hoppy" around here. It's a big import. Not to me. I'm from the Chicago area. IPAs don't seem to exist around here in the more rural regions of Ontario.

Too bad office bars were out of fashion by the time I got a real job. Ah, the 60's. When men could be pigs because it was a man's world.
|1 week 15 hours ago||Be afraid of the Harbaugh!||
Be very afraid.
|1 week 1 day ago||I look at the cast of characters...||
and wonder how you mix them together to get a football focused event about the kids who are signing their LOIs. Really, I'm at a loss on this.
|1 week 2 days ago||Congratulations to Brian and the wife||
His lullaby song will be "I love you Denard". That would work just fine.

Must have been thinking too much about getting lei'd.

In the summer, Harbaugh was the new coach at Michigan and getting into the recruiting mix with big time players and campers. Lots of excitement, but no visible results. By Jan. 1, Harbaugh is the magician that turned the team around to a 10-3 record with a New Year's Day spanking of Florida. That got the attention of the big time recruits that had been courted by Harbaugh and the staff. Suddenly, some really good players were ready to turn blue.
Yes, could have been better handled, but Harbaugh created a good problem to have. We went through the opposite problem in 2014 as the team sank to 5-7 and recruits melted away.
|1 week 3 days ago||The original silver DB5 from Goldfinger||
is so iconic. I'd take that car in a heartbeat.
|1 week 4 days ago||If you love Muzak,||
You'll love Mike Riley. Some people just can't handle any excitement.

but I used a copy of Car and Driver I grabbed from the bathroom.

Hoppy Pilsner and pretty, pretty good.
|2 weeks 14 hours ago||Greenstein isn't the worst||
and he's been rather pro-Harbaugh so far, but when I read his article in the Tribune this morning, I had the same thought as the OP. There's 2 sides to every story and Harbaugh can't state his side. By the time he can, there will be no point in discussing it. So, Greenstein comes across as a pure mudslinger with imunity.
