in T.O. might be good but if you were to put an alll star team from there against an all star team from Detroit it wouldn't even be close... the Detroit team would just run them into the ground... there is some serious up and coming talent comng out of Detroit...

the day off also, wait i've had the whole week off and probably next week also... LOL... i guess the one good thing about being laid off is that i get to spend more time with my 10 month old twins...
the worst part was depoisting my last pay check yesterday and then getting chripped by a comerica bank teller that is a state fan... he start giving me shit because i was wearing a michigan bball hoodie... he was trying to throw the big ten tourny championship game in my face and when i brought up that we were 2 and 1 against state he says you're going to bring up the games where we had our water boy playing... i looked at him and called him a typical state fan and walked out...

and get yourself a 60", 70" or even an 80" TV instead of a projector. It will last longer and you won't have to worry about picture quality at all. I work in the audio/video world and it amazes me that some of my customers think that projectors are the way to go, but some have scaled back on the amount of projectors they are putting in their new stores (think chicken wings) because they know that projectors are dying "breed" if you will... projectors are only meant conference rooms, or large scale venus like concerts...
but if you have your heart set on getting a projector Brookstone sells LED lampless projectors. They're pocket projectors and hook up via HDMI, follow this link: http://www.brookstone.com/portable-projectors this would be the best option for an in house projector...
as for the TVs Sharp has the market cornered for the consumer versions of 70" and 80" TVs at a low cost. you should be able to get a 70" for around $2000 and an 80" for around $3600... now if you want to get crazy there is always the pro models that Samsung, Panasonic and NEC make in these sizes but for those you will need to take out loan...

why these kids are so worried about what position they are going to play, the best 5 are going to play no matter what in most cases... also there have been a bunch of guys who played out of position in college for the betterment of the team and got into the NBA and played their correct position... Vince Carter basically played the 4 in his last year at UNC and played the 2 in the NBA...

said before on here, since I worked in the suites at the stadium I did get to interact with a lot of student athletes (mainly track & field). a good chunk of them were at U of M for both Nike and Adidas and all of them told me that they flat out hated what Adidas had to offer when comparing to Nike.
one of them told me that it was like pulling teeth to try and get anything from Adidas for the first couple of years and they also did not like how the uniforms that that they were given fitted them. It wasn't until this person's senior year that Adidas finally got their shit together and dropped exrta uniforms and other equipment for them, granted it was all in garbage bags... This person told me that all they had to do with Nike was tell the rep what they needed and they got it.
U of M did get a new Adidas rep at the beginning of last year so things might have changed as the original rep was a huge asshole, I know this because i served the Adidas suite for 3 years and had to interact with both. Rumor has it the original rep was kindly asked to leave by the Athletic Department...
also in the 2012 football season I was told that there were rumors that the Athletic Department was secertly talking to Nike to try and work out something for then the Adidas contract ran out...

all of his dunks... whites men can jump...
for glenn, the 360 against minny for sure... but i will always love the dunk against VCU last year when the guy grabbed his jersey to try and slow him down, and that didn't even work...

going to guess that the phones were just ringing off the hook over at 97.1 after he said all of that... he'll keep saying it until the draft happens...

rooted for jevohn because he was canadian and i grew up in canada. plus him and a player from my high school in windsor were considered the number 1 and 2 players in ontario coming out of high school. the guy from high school went to central michigan to play for jay smith...

95 purdue game also, and if you remember the weather wasn't as horrible at the start of the game... was the stadium completely filled at kickoff, i would say no but i would say that it was at least between 85% to 90% full... the place didn't start emptying out until after the first quarter when the weather got even worse... so with the stadium 85% to 90% full at kickoff, plus counting all of the workers and all of the other "misc people" (players, band, press) that were there its safe to assume that they did crack 100,000 that day...

to give an update on this... I have not had time to make the wings yet and then on top of it my son might have to get a new helmet since he has pretty much already out grew his current one. So I don't want to make the wings and then have to do it again if he has to get a new helmet...

high school with a guy who was 6'-8" and couldn't dunk at all. he wasn't coordinated enough to just jump up with one hand and dunk the ball. this guy also couldn't get off of the bench on our HS boys vollyball team... but if you put a baseball in his hand he was an awesome pitcher that could hit the mid 80's...

that Dumars has stronger tie with Michigan than MSU, he does shell out a ton of cash every year to have a suite at Michigan Stadium... And its not a company suite, his name is on the door...

the reason why i stopped listening to 97.1... 97.1's MO is "slow news day? throw random michigan topic out there to piss off the masses to get people to call in"... foster did it once a couple of summers ago about michigan using adidas over nike and i couldn't believe how many people called in...
