"I have convinced my wife that we should live closer to the UM Medical Center, as I can think of no other place I would want little Bo Hail-Storm to be born. In reality, I don't give a flying rip about that--I just need to be within 20 miles of the athletic campus so that I can reduce my post-game cab fare and spend more on priority points. Therefore, we are looking at homes in South Lyon. . ."

0-0 score and 20:00 on the clock. . .not sure 'bout that.
|23 weeks 6 days ago||I'd put my money on The Raven.||
I'm sure "let's read this to the boys before they go to bed" seemed like a great idea at the time. How would the dads know their attempt at getting a bunch of 10 year-olds interested in literature would have such impact?
And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting

100% of the 75% believe they are part of the 25%.
Me? I'm different: I am definitely part of the 25%.

|27 weeks 2 days ago||A stepladder?||
What, have you mistaken Will Campbell for a 1950's-era housewife straining to reach the upper cabinet shelves?
This man is 300 torso-baring pounds of Tackledom.
What we need is an industrial lift.
Or a ramp. A ramp could work, too.
(Edit: Hell. Misplaced response to an earlier post. Point remains, though...)
|27 weeks 4 days ago||This just seems too awkward (or coverage is misleading)||
If DB wants to move the game, he presumably has the $ and negotiating leverage to do so--especially if it is a State on the other side of the negotiation. In the current economy, is it responsible for CT State officials to turn down a profit-multiplier, should Brandon actually offer it? Are they just waiting until closer to the UCONN season ticket sale deadline to announce it, so as to minimize the length of the Manuel pinata session?
Considering UCONN's 2014 schedule looks wide open (from the googles, anyhow), I'd be pleased if the real plan is for Brandon to give ND the "yeah, screw you back" handshake on Sept.1, 2013, pay ND the penalty for cancelling the 2014 game 1 year out, and announce later that day that UCONN will receive ANOTHER $1 million check for playing at Michigan Stadium on Sept. 6, 2014.
Reward Warde with two big paydays, stick it to ND (making them scramble for a quality opponent), and add another home game in 2014? Sounds like a good deal all-around. . .except for the CT-based scalpers who will be denied the opportunity to make a fortune shoehorning Michigan's fans into a 40,000 seat stadium.

It was croquet. Wickedly competitive match, at that.
|29 weeks 6 days ago||"Hold my calls, I'm playing squash"||
Holy hell. . .Pitino calls Bill Martin to explain (or, to be talked into it?), and he is sent to voicemail by Martin's secretary because the boss is playing squash?
Forget missing out on a pretty good coach (again); in my view, the worst part about all of this is that the UM Sailing and Squash teams are still non-factors in NCAA competition, despite the hands-on attention from our AD.
I mean, come on Bill!

Michigan wins. Again.
|31 weeks 2 days ago||That's the unedited old book.||
The 2011 revisions are important:
"And on the sixth day, Brandon said: 'let there be light;' and thereafter, all were cold on late-November evenings."
|31 weeks 2 days ago||Yes, but...||
Doing so at risk of a physical beating in most stadiums, no?
|31 weeks 2 days ago||A Welcome Return to Normalcy...||
It did seem, for a while there, that folks felt winning was no longer an option...glad to have it back on the menu.
Main course? WINNING.
Your three sides? WINNING, WINNING, AND...WINNING.
And for dessert? Lemme guess: "WINNING." NO. F-OHIO. THEN TWO MORE WINNINGS. THANKS.

99 yards...to which some announcer comments: "yeah, right. Some world-class speed."

It's pretty awesome how closely the "famous for being famous" Hilton and your description of ND parallel one another--change a few words here and there, and the post is like a Mad-Lib for the post-prime set.
Except for the top-notch academic bit, of course. Not sure there's anything short of a complete re-write that'll make that one applicable to Ms. H.
|39 weeks 6 days ago||A-men re: Joe louis||
And btw, Joe Louis was 75 years old when he lost to Rocky Marciano. Or 76. Or, according to Frank Sinatra, he was 137 years old. A hundred thirty-seven years old!
Seriously, I overhead this in a barbershop. True story.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||Bowden: "We call that one 'the crocodile'."||
ugh. . .as a student I had the pleasure of attending Miami '88, MSU '90, Colorado '94, and FSU '91, and that FSU loss may have been the worst of all. . .such promise for that team (legitimately so), completely demolished by Buckley and Amp Lee.
I think I remember Coach Bowden's quote right--may have been from a post-game interview that I saw later that day. . .was a crazy lateral-throwback play that went for a TD. Whatever he called it, I vividly remember how happy he looked over it, sort of an "I can't believe we pulled it off either".

Of course, a client just made me drink a french assload of the Rhone, so maybe i'm just confused.
Yes, on a sunday evening. My wife is pissed, but hey...

Can you see Bolivian from your porch?
|1 year 13 weeks ago||The Staring Contest||
Posted this last thursday night, after having failed in the staring contest for roughly 10 hours. . .45 seconds at a time.
Mgoblog is my homepage (yes, rare, I know. . .), and when I powered up, one of my just-graduated employees saw Brian's "80-pound trophy" post on my screen. . .and. . .well, despite my own ban on non-work internet during work hours, I opened the link he forwarded, and the rest is. . .huh.
Ms. Upton apparently is a pitch-woman for SoBe, and she has cut both tv and web ads establishing herself as the undefeated, un-dis-pu-ted Queen of All Staring Contests.
Not sure any of us has a chance. I sure didn't.
Especially after my wife caught me.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Losing a 10 hour, 51 minute staring contest||
At 3:07 PM, my auto-refresh loaded Brian's 80 lb. trophy onto my screen.
At 3:07:12 PM, my hipster employee interrupted my stunned, silent, happy place with: "She's hot. Have you seen The Video?"
Having been cold-busted violating my own rules, I reminded him that we shouldn't be distracting ourselves with the internet, but if The Video wasn't indecent, well...let's take a look.
I can't look away long enough to figure out how to embed, so here it is--it's Ms. Upton, which hopefully gives it the SFW benefit of the doubt (if not, i wish you buenas noches from Bolivian. . .where the internet hopefully supports youtube).
