I think there are a ton of model trains in a cool layout at a small museum in Balboa park.

I wonder if you understand how influential they were. We were watching a change in sports culture before our very eyes. That's pretty cool (in my opinion) even if you didn't like the guys or their style of play or whatever.
|5 days 9 hours ago||Because the headline makes it||
Because the headline makes it sound as if Jalen made some kind of press announcement, or something. It worked. Look at the title of this thread, and subsequent reactions: mgobloggers have subsequently griped that Jalen is stirring the pot, bringing it up regularly, won't let it go, etc. That didn't happen during this interview. Mgobloggers must think that because the News is presenting the story that way, and they apparently can't access the original interview to see the exchange for themselves without the Detroit News lens.

"So about his project coming, best of love and can't wait to see what happens."
|5 days 16 hours ago||Freep, argh, no||
Damnit, I said "Freep" should be "News"
|5 days 16 hours ago||Not sure how Jalen is created a "new twist"||
I think if you're going to call this "another twist" then the title should be "Webber Documentary Out Soon; Jalen's Stance Unchanged."
I don't understand how Jalen's comments are in any way a new twist it's Jalen just standing by earlier comments, made current only because Webber is coming out with his own documentary.
Just because the Detroit News is trying to be inflammatory, we don't have to take it and run with it.
|5 days 17 hours ago||I think the Freep reporter is||
I think the Freep reporter is making it sound like Jalen Rose called up the press to issue a new call for an apology. Six months have passed, time for me to demand it again!
That's not what happened. The reporter brought up Webber's film. Then probes Jalen on whether they are speaking. Jalen says, "I heard through mutual friends that he's upset that I said that I feel like he should have come out and apologize for some transgressions that happened at the University of Michigan. But I still stand behind that." (and then later says something like, it's two words, etc etc)
I'll bet if he DIDN'T say that, the Freep Story would be "JALEN ROSE BACKS OFF DEMAND THAT WEBBER APOLOGIZE" with multiple paragraphs rehashing everything ending with some breathless questions about whether this is a new phase in their relationship, a new warmth, a chance for healing! And then we'd still have an MGoBlog discussion about how Jalen just can't leave it the Webber thing alone.
|5 days 18 hours ago||I don't know how your browser||
I don't know how your browser is formatted, but is it really so difficult for some of the readership to distinguish Jalen's responses from the reporter's questions? Jalen didn't bring it up. Hoopshype did.
|5 days 18 hours ago||Wait, what?||
The interviewer's questions are in bold, Jalen Rose's answers are not. Which means that this question:
"How do you feel about the new Fab Five documentary Chris Webber is going to do?"
was initiated by HoopsHype, not by Jalen. He answered this question; he didn't ask it.

I grew up in Nebraska. The whole state "owns" the team; a degree from the university is immaterial. The idea that one must have attended a school to be a legitimate fan is pretty foreign to me.

So you're saying I can keep realistically hoping for a deployment of Sexy Sax Man into the stands for some number?

It does not help "the brand" when every week there's a new stink-of-desperation ticket offer in my inbox. IMO they need to think carefully about how they handle this unforeseen ticket availibility.

Oh god, as little appetite as I have for dissecting the present state of Michigan football, I have even LESS interest in putting the past under a microscope, especially decisions that were been picked over endlessly on MGoBlog

Club level food is excellent. (At least it has been in years past. Didn't attend this game; gave the tickets to my chauffeur)

Get over it. It's a valid topic for speculation & discussion. Sometimes scandals (and team consequences, if imposed) hurt recruiting, but some prospects seem to not be influenced by it. That's interesting to me, and apparently to the OP.
|7 weeks 9 hours ago||Best thing I ever did when I||
Best thing I ever did when I went to these was to print a roster, sorted by position group (and if I were going this year I'd do one by year too). That way you never get caught wondering who an unfamiliar face is. I spent my time in line figuring out who everyone at the table was so we had something appreciative & personal to say to each of them as they signed.
|7 weeks 9 hours ago||I could almost be sympathetic.||
This kind of error isn't hard to make when you're more focused on graphic style and layout instead of the words. Which is precisely why you bring in fresh eyes to check everything. Either they didn't do that, or everyone who checked it for acuracy blew it. Sparty no.

This isn't supporting misogyny, but our fan base has had its moments of throwing rationality out the window.

The first 10 minutes do not disappoint.

Since everyone is covering the chopped onions, it frees me to offer up observation that Devin in hipster glasses is smoking hot.

The idea that the Regents have somehow had it with Brandon or don't respect him isn't credible to me. The man sat in their seats not that long ago.

So, so ready for the weekend. This is the first weekend in a long time that I didn't have some obligation to fulfill. This weekend is MINE, all mine!

I took one of their baking classes once. The ingredients that went into the tart we made were all top-of-the line and pricey when I acquired them myself. Therefore I stopped griping about the price of their desserts.

I actually let out a squawk of delighted surprise when I saw the headline in the newspaper. I hadn't realized how much of a fan I was until I found myself glued to the TV every Monday for DWTS.

Damnit, this here is an upvote thread and then you go and add something after the elipses that prevents me from bestowing that upon you.

I was thinking about my 10-year college reunion.

Last night I had to meet a friend who was having a kind of crisis, and the bar we met at was showing the Tigers game, no softball. So I was in the dark, and I almost checked twitter for the score but didn't. I should have known something good was up when I walked in to the house and my husband had the DVR cued up to replay the 7th inning, just waiting for me.
It was so sweet to watch. Those homers! That catch!
