|11 weeks 5 days ago||Only wish I could give more Bangs||
for the image of a Thundering heard of Aaron Sheas and others.
Enjoy the day.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Nationwide is an excellent hospital||
My son has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and that hospital is a leading research and treatment site for Duchenne. When he was in the hospital in Minneapolis last summer with heart issues, one of their top Pediatric Heart specialists calles us on a Sunday to consult.
I swallow my distate for OSU and give credit where it is due.
|12 weeks 8 hours ago||checking in||
Don't post much, but here it is.
Pushing 50, graduated from TC class of 85 and LSA in 91. Had a really good time and didn't want to see it end.
Live in Shakopee, MN now. Outside Minneapolis.
Work in Financial services.
Most Michigan thing: My wife (UM nursing school) and I made my daughter's middle name Blue.

Wanted this won and done already, but tonight works for me.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||Met Kevin in Minneapolis for a charity event.||
He was a great guy and engaged with the kids that day. Took them trick or treating through the Mall of America on Holloween.
That was a flagrant intent to injure.
Wish him a speedy recovery.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||Not sports related.||
This is National Parkinsons awareness month. Sports trauma is not a cause for Parkinson's. Football can do terrible things to a body, but this is not one of them.
Loved what Gibby brought to the game.
|16 weeks 13 hours ago||We are a civillized society||
We have a hunded increasingly horrible ways to kill him and the medical technology to try every one of the at least once before settling on the one we don't bring him back from.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Norfleet!||
Love that Dude. He brings it 100% and I enjoy watching him everytime he is on the field.
|17 weeks 6 days ago||I grew up in Traverse City||
Traverse City is awesome.
My wife is from Grandville, but the whole area is full of natural attractions, low cost of living, excellent schools, and enough people to have a meaningful economy. Sailing on Grand Traverse Bay was an incredible way to spend summers.
This is only my opinion, so I am not saying other places suck. Just my two cents.
|17 weeks 6 days ago||West Michigan is paradise||
|20 weeks 5 days ago||Going to a bachelor party for a buddy tonight.||
Starting with red Robin. Good things start with all you can eat fries.
|22 weeks 5 days ago||Minnesota is cold||
But, we endure because spring ball is coming. Happy Friday
|23 weeks 5 days ago||Minnesota is cold||
But Spring is coming. Happy Friday!
|23 weeks 6 days ago||Different insurance covers different things.||
Health care insurance doesn't pay funeral costs. The nightmare is the complicated interactions necessary to navigate at a time of intense mental and emotional distress. Getting the word out may help them get in touch with resources that help them through this and the difficult times ahead. Will share and pray they find strength to cope.
|26 weeks 5 days ago||Next year has promise.||
2016 has Victories, lot's of memorable Victories.
|26 weeks 5 days ago||Under two surprises.||
Too many people with Maize colored glasses seeing any mention of Michigan as a sure thing. There will be few surprises, but hopefully some very encouraging news in the next week. Getting some verbals now to break the ice would be very helpful.
This late of a start is just hard to overcome, but if it can be done, Coach is the one.
|26 weeks 6 days ago||East Coast Advantage.||
Friday starts earlier.
I am sure they will blame Brady and Bellichek for rigging the time Zones to gain an unfair advantage.
Celebrate the day with some new committments.
have a great day.
|26 weeks 6 days ago||In favor of meaningful standards.||
Not in favor of moving targets from admissions. But I am betting that the standards didn't change for the OL recruit. More likely the football recruiter said one thing to kid without knowing details. When someone from admissions straightened it out, things blew up. Still, bad choice for Anderson to take his balls and leave.
|27 weeks 5 days ago||Red Robin = fries||
Not onion rings. But otherwise, spot on
|27 weeks 5 days ago||Trapping while up a 100 is bad.||
Competitive play is not bad. How to remain competitive would be a challenge. Leaders and teachers of kids should be able to figure out a way. Starters on bench, no shots until x passes, etc.
|27 weeks 5 days ago||Enthusiasm is contagious||
Trying to explain to co workers in Minneapolis why I am so damn Enthusiatic. Gophers just don't get enthusiastic about football.
|27 weeks 5 days ago||Love the Staff on Paper.||
Have high hopes that background and pedigree will produce results soon. But realistically, I have to remind myself that patience is required and instant perfection is not realistic. That being said, I am still in awe at the talent and name recognition on the coaching staff.
|28 weeks 5 hours ago||Commitment and perseverance are very important for this team.||
Two transfers does not exemplify either of those.
It shows me he can't or will not do what it takes to succeed in his role with either team.
That and taking a refugee from Arizona is not something I would like.
|28 weeks 14 hours ago||Wish great things for him||
Way too many athletes show off the worst behaviors. Devin is a great role model on many levels. Wish him the best.
|28 weeks 18 hours ago||Shoot a buckeye fan, strap them to the hood of a rental car.||
Should be clear enough message to leave you alone.
May need to repeat daily, if the smell gets worse than normal.
|28 weeks 1 day ago||Find something positive to say||
Without compromising your identity as a Wolverine. They will not expect that. Here is a nice story about a kid anyone can appreciate. http://espn.go.com/blog/bigten/post/_/id/114285/ohio-state-fan-with-musc... Michigan also participated in the Coach to Cure event for the Minnesota game.
|28 weeks 1 day ago||Traverse City.||
Grew up in TC. Best place to raise a family I have lived. Great community, enough opportunity, great schools, and an abundance of outdoor treasures that are just not available in south Michigan.
Traverse City is about 3-4 hours from Ann Arbor, so close enough for Game Days.
|36 weeks 2 days ago||I am Thankful for so much.||
At the Minnesota game, the University and coaching staff joined others to support Coach to Cure to fight Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. My son and family was invited to the game. I was pushing my son in his wheelchair down the tunnel to the field. There was a group of people that started cheering like he was a player. That was a top ten moment of my life. I am thankful the coaching staff and players made time to meet us and make it a special day.
I am also thankful they work their asses off to give me something I can cheer/bitch about each fall to escape for a couple hours on Saturdays.
Each morning I get to see my kids wake up is something I cherish and am thankful for everyone of them.
