I liked Manuel's remarks. A lot. I knew he was thoughtful; did not know he was charming.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||I think he was also sharing||
I think he was also sharing the moment with the family who helped endow the coach position. Anyway, I also thought it was neat that he left it to him. Kudos also to Rudock for making it about the team.

Had to go to the ER last year on Christmas Day with my son. I profusely thanked everyone there for working. Several of them said they were happy to work! Good pay, a break from relatives. But I'm still grateful.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Here on the Alumni tour||
Never been to one of these things. It's a good time, seeing Michigan fans all over the Hyatt Regency. Looking forward to kickoff lunch & pep rally today. The latter is free & open to the public. It's at the I-Drive 360 entertainment center at 2:30 pm.

I'm with you. If this was deliberate (which I doubt) it's bush league. Let's beat them fair and square, not because they got accidental wake up calls and whatnot.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||I'm in serious marital||
I'm in serious marital trouble. I saw the photos on my phone last night and was like "Huh, so Harbaugh showed up!" And my husband was all, "showed up for what?" I explained the whole business to him and he asked why I didn't tell him about the walk ahead of time so we could go.
I had no answer.

When Jordan graduates I'm angling to get Grandma to come to my house.

Mother of son checking in, what a gut punch. Well written. And as for the comments, I'm right there with many of you.
Naturally, any thoughtful person would be sad at this news. I think it hits parents at an entirely different level of sadness and empathy Parent of boys, even more so. Parents of boys that age, almost unfathomable. That's been my experience as my child has grown, anyway.

Michigan's policy has since changed so military personnel aren't screwed on residency.

The Commons hotel is an unbeatable location. Thanks to light rail, however, you can stay farther out and still get there without parking hassles.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||I'm less of a dick than this comment suggests||
Just for clarification--looking at this thread now, it appears I was correcting YOUR spelling, jblaze. In fact I was correcting someone else's, an mgoblogger who boasted about his ability to holler at his own players and declaring a bunch of us (in another thread) an embarrassment to himself as a true die-hard fan. It appears that comment has been deleted.
I generally don't care how you spell Rudock (and you came close anyway) but I will hold someone to a higher standard once he or she annoints himself a superior fan to the rest of us pathetic schlubs.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||You're right that program mix||
You're right that program mix surely plays a role.
MSU graduatates about a third as many engineering students each year as UM does. MSU also has a larger School of Education, too, which would also play a role (they put out 350+ new teachers each year).
|20 weeks 6 days ago||Yet I can't recall the last||
Yet I can't recall the last time our section was so full. Weird.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||There's nothing wrong with being an Ag school anyway||
I hate the implication that having agriculture programs makes you some kind of joke. Maybe it's my Nebraska roots, maybe it's the fact that I enjoy food and wine, maybe I'm just crazy. I may poke fun at MSU for lots of things but this would not be one of them.

I confess I would like to put a stop to their ongoing Brown Jug party.
|21 weeks 12 hours ago||It's Rudock||
Mr Die-Hard fan.

Nope, not sure. I don't think the MDen was having the same issue--no signs up, anyway.
|21 weeks 12 hours ago||Well, you're putting yourself in there||
I merely noticed that they aren't enforcing the bag policy consistently, not crying over seeing purses. Cash-only was a glitch that took a few fans by surprise, which I know because I saw people asking seaated for cash.

My eyes may or may not have welled up when his voiceover started. I'm not telling.

Were you the "C" in Michigan? That section was noticeably slacking off.
|21 weeks 15 hours ago||Needed more band music. Too||
Needed more band music. Too much piped-in. Couldn't tell whether the video voiceover part of the halftime show was an error or not--they drowned out the band (at least on the east side).

So at least someone might be dealing with "two chicks at once" like the OP hoped.

After that first inning, we might be lucky to get done with this by 2am

Hmm, the ESPN guy thought I did, but I suppose they don't have their most crackerjack guy on the phones on a Sunday.
|37 weeks 6 days ago||I just called them, and they||
I just called them, and they confirmed it's a computer-only game on ESPN3. Of course I don't know our account number (cable is in husband's name) so I am screwed.
|37 weeks 6 days ago||Where the &$¥#% is the game?||
Where the &$¥#% is the game? ESPNU is showing me the Oklahoma game. Come on.

I don't know, man, my dad was still so busy and making so many contributions at 74 when cancer took him. My inlaws are almost 80 and they have great lives where they're free to pursue their passions & interests at will.

I'm on my phone; it hates the mgoApp and vice versa.
|39 weeks 1 hour ago||I live in the northwest part||
I live in the northwest part of Pittsfield where it's hard to get a lot of house for your money, but more east of here your $ goes farther. Partly driven by the school district, as Pittsfield is divided among Ann Arbor, Saline, & Ypsi schools. It's losing a lot of greenspace due to development but it's a nice township to live in.
