I have college friends in the DC area and we are having a reunion for the game. This will be the first time I see them in a couple years. I'm not gonna be a happy camper if this game is moved.

Seriously. I feel the same way whenever I read your posts. Most interesting man on the blog, at least.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||I don't have a problem with||
I don't have a problem with the vandalism so much as I have a problem with Michigan fans who think we are in a position to taunt/talk shit to Michigan State right now.

this is exactly why i've never been able to get into recruiting

Best of luck to you. I am working on a first novel of my own right now and I've started considering the self-publishing route. It's a scary prospect but a likely reality of the current publishing economy. That said, that's a tremendous accomplishment to get it finished and finally published. I envy you in that regard. Can I ask which self-publishing services you used, if any?

This post is exactly what you'd see on RCMB if Michigan was #1. Until we can beat State on the field, I'm not interested in taking any shots at them for anything else.

My college buddy was kicked out of that Gator Bowl - I escorted him out. Didn't matter much at that point.
|11 weeks 4 days 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.
|12 weeks 1 day 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 Chris McCandless reference. Also that sounds really cool.

"the core of a man's spirit comes from new adventures."
that book changed my life.

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.

So far it looks like Mrazek was the right man. We'll find out what he's made of in the third.
|25 weeks 3 days 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.

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)

Is Metro Detroit too smoggy an area to see them? I looked briefly tonight but didn't see anything.
|29 weeks 5 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.

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.

Wow, St. Mikes, Divine Child, then Michigan. We had similar life trajectories.
|32 weeks 1 day ago||Being from Livonia, you||
Being from Livonia, you didn't go to St. Mike's too, did you?
|32 weeks 1 day 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?

Divine Child class of 2006. Michigan '10. We probably just missed each other.

Hopefully "sad" is not the ultimate conclusion. Going to rehab was the best decision I ever made.

I was in a class at Michigan with Kampfer the semester that the incident occurred. Still haven't gotten over it; so good news.

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!

Maybe I'm a wuss when it comes to winter, but I would hardly classify the winter in metro Detroit this year as mild.
