Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."

Can't go wrong in the Caribbean (at least I haven't so far). I've been to Puerto Rico a couple times, Antigua, and St. Lucia. All are truly different experiences and all very amazing. Flights to Puerto Rico can be had at very reasonable prices, too.

The Gulf Coast of Florida is great. Siesta Key, St. Armands Circle, and Longboat Key are very nice. Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel, and Captiva aren't too shabby either.
|1 week 10 hours ago||Colorado!||
In the past year, I've been pretty fortunate to travel a fair bit. Since it's summer, I'll mention three of my favorite places to visit this time of year. In June, I flew out to Denver for a wedding and turned it into a Colorado road trip. Highlights were Boulder, Rocky Mountian National Park, Breckenridge, Aspen, Telluride, and Colorado Springs. I had been to Colorado before, but Telluride was new to me. Best town ever. I'm sure this trip would be a real treat in late September/early October when the Fall foliage peaks.
Second on the list is San Francisco, Monterey, Carmel, and Big Sur. Fly into SF and drive down CA1. Fantastic views and great hiking in the numerous state parks along the way.
The third on my list would be Seattle (my favorite "big" city). All three of these destinations would be very kid friendly, in my opinion. Of course, anywhere along the lakes in the great state of Michigan is near the top of the list. I'd also love to visit Maine in the summer.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I have been from Algonac to||
I have been from Algonac to Lake Erie several times. Provided the weather is nice, the trip should be pretty straight forward. That being said, the Detroit River can get very shallow outside of the shipping channel. I imagine you'll enter the Livingston Channel from Lake Erie and stick to the shipping channel through the Detroit River and Lake St. Clair. Lake St. Clair is also a very shallow lake (I'm sure you know), but the crossing is pretty easy if you stay in the channel and enter the St. Clair River through the South Channel. The Middle Channel entrance to the St. Clair River can be dangerous for those who haven't been there before. If you take the wrong approach to the first set of markers, you'll find yourself in a couple feet of water (at most). I can't speak for the trip north of Algonac, but the St. Clair River is pretty easy to navigate. It is well marked, and the water color is very telling of the depth. Stay in the middle and obey any no wake zones, and you'll be fine.

Nice shirt. I saw Chance the Rapper do a show with Childish Gambino in Detroit a couple years back. Been hooked ever since.

So I think what you're saying is that our football coaches are really bad, considering the MBB staff is top notch.

After today's debacle, I'd much prefer the old system where we mailed in a form and entered a raffle. It's frustrating to hear that people were able to get tickets easily by calling, when all the messages prior to the ticket sale stressed that the only way to obtain tickets was to be on your computer at 10am on May 1. However, after 2.5 hours of technical failure nonsense, I also wound up calling and got tickets to Minnesota with relative ease. I just wish I knew I could have called at 10am.

Not to nitpick, but Illinois switched to a 3-2 zone midway through the second half (not a 2-3 zone). This is particularly problematic because the three defenders at the top of the key lock down our shooters, and we don't have the size to exploit the two defenders along the baseline. Our offense is well suited to pick apart a 2-3 zone.

I'm here for the Posbang, but also for an explanation of the "or two MSU losses." We don't need two MSU losses. We need one win or a loss from both MSU and Wisconsin for the outright title. Amirite?

I see where you're going, but if we actually won the Big Ten regular season, we will be much better than a 6-seed. Likely a 2-seed.

Why was LeVert inexplicably standing alone under the basket on the last defensive series? Petteway stepped out to the three point line and nobody followed him. Our (lack of) defensive awareness is frustrating at times.

That just might be genius. Eliminating the possibility of a three pointer while in three point range does seem ludicrous.

I should add that, although I don't prefer these places, Cheli's Chili and Hockeytown Cafe should have a lot of fans and are a bit more "touristy," if that's what you're looking for.
|34 weeks 12 hours ago||Greektown||
Grab a bite to eat in Greektown (Monroe Street). My favorite place is a hole in the wall called "The Golden Fleece." Food is amazing. As far as bars, I like going to The Baltimore, The Old Shillelagh (both right near Greektown), and the State Bar (next to The Fillmore Theater). All of these places are an easy walk from Ford Field. Enjoy!

Guys... Stop. Yes, it's been a tough year. Yes, we fell short of expectations. Borges should be fired. Michigan basketball has had a tough start to the year without the Player of the Year. It sucks. But let's stop with the repeated threads with the whining.
