I thought Green looked like he was on his way to his best performance of the year when he broke his collarbone. He was finding holes and breaking tackles that day IIRC.

Well then I have good news for you! They started selling it again on Amazon this year.

This post is fascinating.

GVSU is a good school (and it's where I got my Masters) but the amount of abuse members of this board give to MSU is a bit extreme. It's a strong university. It's not elite all around like UM, but is a solid academic institution with several elite programs.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah, whenever I see people||
Yeah, whenever I see people dogging OSU's academics I chuckle a bit. It may not be elite in as many areas as UM, but it is nationally elite in quite a few, including my specialty.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah, but this is not the||
Yeah, but this is not the first time I've heard praises of Madison. Great school and great city from my understanding. I'd still pick UM as a school, but people I know who have been to both usually prefer Madison.

That may be the case, but sports are for entertainment. When they aren't entertaining, they aren't worth watching IMO.

Last year was the first time I actually chose to not watch large parts of games. Our team was so boring to watch.

If we pretend that Rocky V never happened, the Rocky series is great. It started out as legitimately good cinema, and transitioned into something so ridiculous it was awesome.

Founders isn't just popular based on popular vote though. Look at the ratings of their beers on Beer Advocate, and look at essentially every top ten list of breweries which is not determined by a popular vote. I bet you'll see Founders on there.

This is an excellent comment and I wish it wasn't getting negged.

You've never been to Grand Rapids, have you?
|13 weeks 5 days ago||I had the same experience.||
I had the same experience. When I was young, I couldn't wait to get out, and when I graduated from UM, I had no intention of coming back. However, here I am, and it's been great. Either GR is completely different as an adult, or the city has done a 180. GR as a young professional has been fun.

I think this is literally the first time I've ever heard someone complain about housing prices in GR. Expensive housing is not the reality I have seen at all.

I know I just pitched a bunch of stuff in GR's favor, but I'm not sure an Arizona native could be happy with Grand Rapids winters. They can be pretty brutal.

With all of the above said, man I do hate the winters with a passion.

Do you have any breweries nearby? I feel like the time I spent at Founders is what got me. I started with their simpler stuff, and got more and more experimental over time.

I think Sam Adams is a bit of a gateway drug. Their beers are pretty good, but none of them have that much substance to them.

The line meant, "Why are you Romeo?" Juliet is wondering why he has to be who he is, because she can't be with someone from that family.

I know this is an old thread, but now that it's back I just have to point something out regarding diversity. I keep seeing people posting about the diversity of AA being a selling point over a place like GR. According to census data, this is a myth. Ann Arbor is significantly whiter than Grand Rapids.
Grand Rapids: 64.6% white
Ann Arbor: 73% white
I think people are conflating their university experiences with the city itself. I loved AA as a student, but I prefer GR as a graduate.
EDIT: This wasn't meant to be a reply. Derp.
|23 weeks 3 days ago||According to the 2010 census,||
According to the 2010 census, Ann Arbor is almost 10% whiter than Grand Rapids by population percentage. The university is known for its diversity, but the city proper is really not that diverse.
|24 weeks 17 hours ago||I live in the GR area right||
I live in the GR area right now, and I'm going to miss it when I have to move next year. The city itself is nice, but there is also a large number of nice suburbs with good public schools and inexpensive housing costs. Also, when it comes to recreation, there is plenty to do in GR. The city really seems to be on the rise, and is pretty cloes to some awesome beaches as an added bonus.

Why do you need hawt chicks in your avatar? I never understood this.
