Quite a nice day for you then. I'm stuck at work.. Hour and a half to go, damn it! I'm going to attack my mailbox (or maybe my mailman) with an enthusiasm unknown to mankind!
|20 hours 59 min ago||Same thing.. No confirmation||
Same thing.. No confirmation email. Hopefully they correct that for next season.
|22 hours 9 min ago||Thank you sir, and enjoy the festive day!||
Thank you sir, and enjoy the festive day!

Haha.. That's an idea, but no I was thinking generally... Like.. Grand Rapids area.. Metro Detroit.. California.. That sort of thing.
|22 hours 47 min ago||Just out of curiosity, where||
Just out of curiosity, where do you live? I live in the Toledo area and I haven't seen mine yet. Anyone have any idea how they do the disbursement?

I agree with this entirely. Herbstreit is great when he isn't talking about OSU. I was telling my wife last season, "I really like Jesse Palmer's insight to the game, I just hate having to look at him." Obviously with that many on air personalities there are going to be at least a few duds. It just seems like ESPN has a hard time minimizing their airtime (as you mentioned).

On mobile, good sir. Can't see points. My apologies for any offense I may have visited upon you.

I will forever miss (for the humor value) the segment from several years where Lou gave one team a halftime "Pep Talk". I only caught it once, and I couldn't even laugh, because I was so damn confused at what the hell was happening.
|4 days 18 hours ago||I got a response on Twitter||
I got a response on Twitter from the ticket office saying that I'd have mine in hand by the beginning of Aug. I guess that's the canned response, congrats on getting yours!
|5 days 14 hours ago||Carr was a great coach, no||
Carr was a great coach, no question. Was there anything to suggest that fan disapproval was that big a factor in him retiring? I'm honestly asking, because those days seem like an eternally long nightmare ago.
|5 days 14 hours ago||He at least seems to be a||
He at least seems to be a more likable person than Lloyd. Obviously, I've never met either, but he just seems like a guy who could recruit young coaching talent as well.
|5 days 14 hours ago||The thing I remember about||
The thing I remember about that play was thinking at the time that Troy Smith baited him into it. That pissed me off even more.
|5 days 22 hours ago||It does seem optimistic,||
It does seem optimistic, however it is hard to tell overall with a new Michigan coach and the fact that Sparty hasn't visited Ann Arbor since 2012.
|5 days 22 hours ago||The Jet Express coming back||
The Jet Express coming back from Put-In-Bay in the morning is the worst looking walk of shame I can think of. True story, I once saw two guys fighting in the street with beer bottles in their hand in the middle of the afternoon on a Wednesday in June.

That is true at this very moment, but McCann needs the at bats to figure it out. McCann also doesn't have the legs of an 80 year old either.

|6 days 23 hours ago||Burn it all to the ground!||
Burn it all to the ground! As someone who lives in the Toledo area, I can tell say with certainty that the Mud Hens are awful. DD mortgaged the future to try to win a World Series. They got close, but couldn't get it done. Time to get younger and cheaper. Price probably won't resign in my opinion, and Cespedes is a fine player that ultimately is replaceable. They would both be extremely expensive to resign. I would like to see Avila go as well. McCann's playing time has fallen with him coming back, which isn't a good thing in my opinion.

100% agree. My wife's family are all MSU alums, they give me a hard time all the time for rooting for Michigan even though I didn't go there, but the vitriol is more intense from SOME sections of the Michigan fan base.
|1 week 5 days ago||Thanks for all the||
Thanks for all the suggestions! Monticello was pretty great, especially on a really nice day like today. One of the things I really love about this blog is all the support. Thanks again, and Go Blue!

You win the internet my friend. Bravo!

Was born there... I'm not a fan of the heat, the beach, or the crowds. Definitely a "to each their own" type of thing. Part of my issue is probably being raised by Michigan born parents trying to get back home. We finally left when I was 11. We lived in King George County for a while too, really loved that area by comparison.

Thanks folks. Wine tour planned tomorrow, unfortunately I'm DD til the evening.

Born in Virginia Beach so I have gone to the big ones. Honestly, going through elementary school in VA gives you some awesome field trip opportunities, those sites are all must see.
