|42 weeks 6 days ago||Sky Bridges||
Has anyone been to MSG and sat in the "bridge" section? I look them up on line and they seem kind of cool, but it's hard to tell what the view is actually like, especially with a big sheet of glass in front of you.
|47 weeks 9 hours ago||Greenbelt Metro||
If all the campus lots are sold out online your best bet would be park at the greenbelt metro station and take the train one stop to college park. Parking on campus is super restrictive and all the neighborhood streets are permit parking.
Metro parking is free and a one stop ride will be about 2 to 3 dollars a person. You could also probably grab a bus from the the metro station that may be a little cheaper but obviously less convenient.
|47 weeks 1 day ago||Shuttle||
UMCP runs a fairly large shuttle bus network that'll get you from the Metro to the stadium.
Walking shouldn't be too bad, though it is about a 2 mile walk and I believe it's somewhat up hill.
Word of warning: metro on weekends can be...unreliable. I'm not sure which lines are getting completely screwed this weekend, but in general expect 20+ minute waits for trains which really adds up if you have to make transfers. Get an app for checking wait times and it may be worth it to walk a little further to a green line stop (if possible) vs. relying on a transfer.

Man, I have a hard enough time remembering what happened the night before at the Black Cat when I have to pay for drinks, free vodka sounds dangerous (and awesome).
|1 year 19 weeks ago||What Website?||
What website are you looking for tickets on? Stubhub? The University hasn't started selling single game tickets yet as far as I can tell. I'm actually debating buying season tickets ($180 for the upper bowl!) as I'm a short metro ride away from College Park.
I've seen maybe one football game at Byrd (Maryland vs. Duke? In 2001?), I was in the lower bowl and it was fine. I've watched a lot of lacrosse there, usually from the lower bowl for Maryland games which is always fun, and from the upper bowl when the National Championships were still there. Like other people have mentioned the upper bowl is really steep, and quite a ways up there.

|2 years 17 weeks ago||BYU||
I always figured BYU would be adding a team sooner rather than later. They always have a solid club team and have some built in recruiting from all over the country. There is a huge Mormon population in a lot of the lacrosse hot bed (massive Temple in DC and the religion started in upstate New York).
Plus, having the missionary break built in means they'd constantly be fielding older teams which I think could give them an advantage in fielding a good team their first few years ("Hey, come here and play lacrosse, but go on your mission first while we recruit a bunch of other good players for two years, and when you come back we'll have three classes of recruits all ready to play").

Thankfully they don't play D1 hockey on "The Big Pond". 197x115 ft. Wut?

Is anyone else on a ski vacation at Whistler? Want to find a bar to apres ski and watch the bowl game?
|2 years 36 weeks ago||Forsbergian||
They should be calling Forsbergian as he was the first one to pull that move. They even put it on a postage stamp in Sweden.
|2 years 36 weeks ago||No more DC||
I would like to point out that the Military Bowl/DC bowl is no longer being played in DC, rather it's at Navy's Stadium in Annapolis (which means no beer...but I digress). I am therefore in full support of renaming it the Old Bay Crab Bowl or something similar.
|2 years 41 weeks ago||Not that great.||
Except the hours suck. They don't open until 9am and the terrible pool there has even worse hours. And if it's even slightly busy the weight room gets incredibly cramped. Great? Eastern's Rec is way better. In fact every college campus I've been on has a better rec center.

mgoblue says the game will be on BTN as well.
|2 years 49 weeks ago||My dad||
My dad had a stress related siezure two weeks ago (or at least I think it's stress related) and his doc told him not to work for a month. I think Coach Kill needs to do something similar because this has happened before.
|3 years 5 weeks ago||End line tickets||
Since they only have sideline and corner tickets available does that mean endline tickets (because I'm cheap) will be available at a later date without the lottery?

|3 years 9 weeks ago||Spain-North Korea||
It was either Spain or Brazil that played North Korea at the last world cup, that was probably as much of a mismatch, but still go Tahiti. That Tahiti/Nigeria match could have been a lot closer, I thought Tahiti should have had two more goals and Nigeria could have easily had two less goals (first one was a double deflection and the third was a fumble by the Tahitian keeper). Granted Nigeria did dribble the ball over the end line three or four times with a wide open net infront of them.
Hopefully we get to see more of this sometime this tournament:

I quickly drew up a sketch of the entire area they are trying to redevelop as well as where the arena would be located.
|3 years 9 weeks ago||Soccer||
It may be just because I really like soccer, but I think the Men's soccer games are some of the best non-revenue games. Especially for matches against State and OSU the student section gets pretty rowdy with a good set of organized cheers. Plus the soccer facility is really nice.
I've also been to a tennis match at the indoor facility and that was pretty fun as well.

Also, the fact that NHL network isn't even an option on UVERSE swayed me away from it, though I believe that's the cable provider at my new house next year.
|3 years 11 weeks ago||No problems with comcast||
I've honestly had no problems in the 6 years I've had it in Ann Arbor. The first place I moved into here, the tech spent 3 hours to run new lines throughout the whole even though I paid no installation fee.
Never had service problems and the one time I had a problem with my box it took me all of 15 minutes at the Comcast store to exchange it for a new one.

It's a network based in France that recently started in the US.
It's 728 on Ann Arbor comcast (not HD) and 620 on Directtv according to wikipedia.

"Package store" is also a common name, especially in Boston and Baltimore.
