Best of luck in the struggle, and let's hope the good trend continues. Having the right positive attitude always makes a difference regardless of the type of treatments, and hopefully your wife knows that there are a lot of complete strangers like me that are thinking of her and wishing her (and you of course) all the positive energy we can muster.
I wish that posts like this would make some of our, ummm... less tactful... posters realize that we're all people with real life problems and difficulties, and that sometimes being civil can go a long way toward making life easier.

The feeling is indescribable... to see the little up and down arrows for the first time. Surely it's as good as a night with Kate Upton. Ummm... NOT. Hope you get there soon.

to use some of the points from this posbang to neg anyone who whines and moans about the MMB not being [whatever]-enough. As an MMB parent, I'm tired of those who don't know bands from their butts complaining about how everybody's band is so much better. Hey folks... the vast majority aren't. So upvote me, MMB alumni, members, friends and family!
|2 days 1 hour ago||I will gladly....||
pay you Tuesday, for a hamburger today. Well, not really, but after 4+ years on the site and wanting to finally have an impact on the trolls, I am going to post until I have enough points to neg the great unwashed. Your upvotes would be greatly appreciated to help me achieve this mission.

The alumni association has tour packages and eventually they will provide the schedule of events. There is an alumni association tailgate before the game... you can purchase tickets to that separate from the main tour...

|1 week 4 days ago||Parent with a slightly different spin||
On the outcome of the game, I'm relatively certain that there is a bit of an empathy factor, although I'm not sure exactly how it plays out. However, I can see it with me in a different context. Up until this year I've always been a major MMB fan (band geek in HS and my whole family has been in marching band). When people here would whine about the band (not loud enough, don't like the selection, show is too boring), I would get a little ticked, but not enough to comment. This year my son made the MMB drumline (just wanted to do it for his senior year) and I've watched how much and how hard they work, and the creativity of Dr. Pasquale as they have upgraded halftime shows and just put together an amazing ensemble. Now every time someone on this board whines/complains about the MMB, or talks about how Ohio's band is so much better, I want to take a 2 by 4 to the sides of their heads (and that's when I'm in a good mood). Thankfully my cyber control is intact, or I'm sure I'd be sitting in Bolivia cheering on the La Paz HS Marching Mariachi Band....

That show was outstanding, and this season's band is incredible. People should go to the pre-game rehearsals at Elbel and see the work they are doing. My (slightly) inside information has it that the entire season will have very high production value. Professor Pasquale is up there in top hires for UofM along with Greg Mattison.

C'mon folks, it was a godawful performance by the ND band. CMU last week was a much smaller, but still superior, band. ND played at best high school literature (and needed sheet music to do it), and while some might have found it loud, I couldn't hear much, and it had no quality whatsoever. From my seats in Section 39, we had a perfect angle on the formations. It was a simple program and they couldn't even hold that together. Their diagonals were embarrassingly non-existent, they couldn't hold a straight line to save their lives, and many of the band members were out of step. I can't honestly come up with a poorer performance from a visiting band in recent memory.

Note that the percentage distribution rankings at the bottom of your page are based on June of 2012 data, prior to the changes for alums and letterwinners. Given that the median was about 20.5 prior to that change, expect a big jump when they recalculate.

Possibly an inch of slush on the sidewalk here in Royal Oak. Went out to shovel it and stopped when I realized it would be gone on its own by the end of the day. Closed the office, however, since everyone with a longer commute than my 3/4 of a mile seemed to be buried...

My son (current Music Composition major) played for him in University Band two years ago, and was very impressed. Reaction from the band members I've heard has been very positive. He has a ton of energy and will certainly put everything into putting a great product out on the field and in the stands.

... in the vodka and cranberry. You'll get the orange flavor and replace that relatively healthy orange juice with possibly more helpful alcohol.

Not if it serves to shut Lou Holtz up.

I like this thread... much more tasteful, complete sentences and no one talking about firing anyone. Couple of Strongbows should do the trick while hoping USC will put away the Domers.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Watched warmups for Iowa||
Honestly, didn't even see him attempt a pass in warmups... if he did, as mentioned earlier, it was just a couple of palmed short tosses. He was definitely not in any of the passing drills.

... who I certainly am not watching the game with. Used to like Notre Dame growing up until I started associating with ND fans... drove the love right out of me and turned it into hate.
|1 year 3 weeks ago||Legends looks like the old Big Ten||
I dunno what all the tears are about -- I see the Legends division looking like the pre-PSU days of the Big Ten, with not that dissimilar scheduling. Six original Big Ten teams (plus Nebraska as a trade for, which, Wisconsin?) plus the crossover with OSU is effectively an 8 team league from a Michigan perspective (7 of 8 in the original Big Ten). Sure we don't see the other three (Wisconsin, Indiana and Purdue) as often, but didn't those always rotate in and out?

Received my letter today as well. I have 25 points, also offered two. Processed the order about 30 seconds after I opened the letter...
|1 year 49 weeks ago||on getting back from the game||
Since you mentioned not walking... what's it going to be like between the Superdome and the Courtyard Marriott (St. Charles and Canal) after the game? Will I need a cab or will there be enough M fans walking back to make it safe?

... they've got a lot of cattle in Columbus, send them home to graze... etc., etc.
We were singing it in high school in the mid-70s. It may have been popularized on a radio show, but I'm pretty sure I learned it from an M student who said it was sung at games in the 1970s...

If people really want to "protest," do it in a really effective, really "American" way.... cancel your subscription (or stop buying it at the newstand), and take the money you would have paid for it, and click "beveled guilt" instead
|2 years 48 weeks ago||What about the team meeting?||
Srsly, I did look through the posts but couldn't find any status information. Wasn't there supposed to be a team meeting starting about ... ummm ... now?

No way I'm going to look through all the posts earlier to see if this is otherwise up.... but the Dominos plane N220DF is scheduled to leave Baton Rouge any moment....
