|1 week 1 day ago||My college buddy was kicked||
My college buddy was kicked out of that Gator Bowl - I escorted him out. Didn't matter much at that point.
|1 week 1 day ago||2009 Delaware State||
I spent time in the stadium drunk tank during the 2009 Delaware State game. It was my senior year, we went 5-7, lost to Ohio State for the fourth time in my student years (saw 3 in person). I drank a lot that year.
|1 week 5 days ago||Writing||
currently writing a book that takes up most of my spare time, but so many other hobbies listed here that I would love to do in years to come. I'm at a weird age -- all my friends like to do is drink, but I quit drinking, so it's cool to see all these interesting hobbies people find themselves absorbed in.
|1 week 5 days ago||+1 Chris McCandless||
+1 Chris McCandless reference. Also that sounds really cool.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||I hate my life.||
I hate my life.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||"the core of a man's spirit||
"the core of a man's spirit comes from new adventures."
that book changed my life.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Same. Ironically I stayed||
Same. Ironically I stayed away from it throughout my Ann Arbor years, but have more or less substituted it for all the booze I was drinking back then in my more responsible, settled down mid-late 20's years.
Will be celebrating after work. Waiting for Michigan to put it on the ballot.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||So far it looks like Mrazek||
So far it looks like Mrazek was the right man. We'll find out what he's made of in the third.
|15 weeks 4 min ago||Lots of urban legends||
Lots of urban legends floating around Grand Rapids about who those characters were based on. Great series if you were a teen when those movies came out.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||I have to ask, though I'm||
I have to ask, though I'm sure it has been before around these parts: why Denis Fithian? Are you actually Denis Fithian? I ask myself this everytime I see a post of yours, so I'm finally asking.
(fail post. too lazy to fix it)

And Lloyd Carr's old stomping grounds.
|18 weeks 6 days ago||Is Metro Detroit too smoggy||
Is Metro Detroit too smoggy an area to see them? I looked briefly tonight but didn't see anything.
|19 weeks 2 days ago||Mrazek will be on the bench||
Mrazek will be on the bench in the playoffs. I would even say start him if Jimmy falters early on.
|21 weeks 5 days ago||That's far out, man. I'd love||
That's far out, man. I'd love to listen to some of those stories some time. HST died 10 years ago this week; I'm a huge fan.
|21 weeks 5 days ago||Wow, St. Mikes, Divine Child,||
Wow, St. Mikes, Divine Child, then Michigan. We had similar life trajectories.
|21 weeks 5 days ago||Being from Livonia, you||
Being from Livonia, you didn't go to St. Mike's too, did you?
|21 weeks 5 days ago||You life story almost sounds||
You life story almost sounds like Hunter S. Thompson's. Did you ever cross paths with him in Colorado?
|21 weeks 5 days ago||Divine Child class of 2006.||
Divine Child class of 2006. Michigan '10. We probably just missed each other.
|25 weeks 1 day ago||true story, more or less...||
true story, more or less...
|25 weeks 1 day ago||Hopefully "sad" is not the||
Hopefully "sad" is not the ultimate conclusion. Going to rehab was the best decision I ever made.
|25 weeks 5 days ago||biggest game of the season!||
biggest game of the season! Go Wings
|25 weeks 5 days ago||I was in a class at Michigan||
I was in a class at Michigan with Kampfer the semester that the incident occurred. Still haven't gotten over it; so good news.
|26 weeks 1 day ago||Not hockey-related, but it||
Not hockey-related, but it feels weird that after 6+ years of reading Mgoblog I'm only now finding out you grew up in Colorado, Brian!
|26 weeks 2 days ago||Maybe I'm a wuss when it||
Maybe I'm a wuss when it comes to winter, but I would hardly classify the winter in metro Detroit this year as mild.
|27 weeks 5 days ago||that's my aunt! god dammit||
that's my aunt! god dammit she got to meet Jim before me...
Funny story: I work with her husband (my uncle), and I find out she met Harbaugh not through her, not through my uncle, but through Mgoblog. Oh, the powers of Mgoblog.
|30 weeks 2 min ago||I, too, thought we were||
I, too, thought we were closer than many thought to the precipice of irrelevance. My brother said today, "I'm glad we got Harbaugh because I think Michigan football was causing you to lose touch with reality the last couple years". Good enough reason for me.
|30 weeks 2 hours ago||thosewhostay7||
Interestingly, the twitter account formerly known as "thosewhostay7" is still giving updates, post-happening. He says that 'the staff has a chance to be the best staff cfb has seen since USC in the Carroll era'. Also says Jim has been making phone calls all night. Not exactly rumors, but interesting.
|30 weeks 4 days ago||Also interesting: while||
Also interesting: while checking to see if I was still following him (I am), I noticed that Derrick Green is also following him. Meaning he either actually has some sort of connection to the team or even our own players believe this guy has knowledge to offer.
|30 weeks 4 days ago||I have a lot of Sparties in||
I have a lot of Sparties in my friend group and family, and they are in complete denial in regards to Harbaugh.
|30 weeks 4 days ago||Wow, I thought it would've||
Wow, I thought it would've been hard if I hadn't gotten into Michigan. Can't really blame that poor relative.
