|7 weeks 6 days ago||I don't need a quiz||
I once took action on the results of a German club handball game from an offshore.
But then again, my 25:1 ticket on Michigan winning the tourney that I snagged last August is still looking pretty.

|14 weeks 1 day ago||Firearms on Campus||
The only students I remember owning firearms on campus were a couple of the ROTC guys I knew. Other than that I don't remember a single person have a gun at their AA residence. I knew some that had firearms at their parents house, but never in AA. That was only a few years ago.
It seems like it wasn't until after I left AA I realized just how many people in this country own guns.

They played a pretty thrilling 3OT game against Minnesota this year to open the season. I only remember that game because I stayed up till 2AM on a Thursday night watching it when I had a 7am meeting the next morning at work.
|18 weeks 1 day ago||Travel Fairness||
I'm pretty sure the Big Ten has a certain mileage cutoff for driving vs flying. It might be something like 600 miles, so the inner schools have to drive everywhere while the outer schools get to fly when they face the schools across the conference. One could argue that flying 1000 miles would be easier than driving 500.
I'm not 100% on what I wrote above, but if a team like Nebraska is going to fly anywhere east of Chicago, it really doesn't add too much on the trip whether it is Columbus or State College, PA. If I were a player in Lincoln I'd reather fly to Columbus than drive to Champagne. Being farther away could actually reduce your travel times, is what I'm trying to get at.

But as long as Portland, Oregon is still a city, no other place gets to claim having the best craft brew scene in America.

I like this graphic from the NFL this year.
Every team is better than every other team, including themselves.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||That's a really dumb||
That's a really dumb observation. I doubt there is a really any correlation to there being more racism just because someplace is considered to be in the south. But then again the first counter example that popped into my head was South Africa...
|28 weeks 3 hours ago||Alignment||
With Minnesota's balanced formation and Michigan having 7 guys in the box, no matter what you are going to have 3 defenders on one side of the play and 4 defenders on the other.
Unless Michigan lines up a guy over the center, they are going to be at a disadvantage on one side of the formation or another.
|32 weeks 5 days ago||Ol' George||
I have fond memories of engaging Georgie in sport. I blocked for him as the center on '90 squad. A tremendous runner Georgie was, and he had more moxie than any other man on the Grid, with the exception of perhaps my good friend George Holden.

Washington and Baylor combined for nearly 1,400 yards in a barn-burner. No defense was played that game either.
|35 weeks 5 days ago||Kitchen Dick||
Out on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington is "Kitchen Dick Road".
I gotta imagine there is a great story behind that one.
|39 weeks 1 day ago||Steam Tunnels||
I've been in the steam tunnels. They connect almost every building on campus. The large concrete cylinders around campus that people post fliers on are the ventilation ducts, as the tunnels can get extreamly hot. But they are also a complete maize and students have almost died from dehydration after getting lost in them.

This lady I work with had a grandfather who competed in the 1936 olympic games. He was part of the team that won the gold in 8-man rowing. Hitler himself placed the gold medal around his neck.
I can only imagine the types of bar bets he won with the story of the day he won a gold medal at the Olympics and met Hitler.

Every year in school my buddy and I would call in sick to our shitty summer jobs the day NCAA was released. We would pick up a case (or two) of nasty Icehouse beer and play dynasty mode until our eyes bled and all the beer dissapeared.
One time I beat him on a last second hail-mary and he ran into the hallway in Markley and kicked the heating vent. I went back a few years ago and that dent is still there. That dent is my legacy.
|45 weeks 2 days ago||Totally Agree||
About 6 months ago I was riding a ferry between Seattle and Bainbridge Island. I was minding my own business when I heard a familiar voice. I look up and sure enough it's Conan O'Brien sitting 10 feet from me chatting up an old couple. Before I could snap out of my shock, he got up, thanked the couple for the conversation and walked off.

He isn't a Prettyman without the heirloom mustache. I recieved mine from my father who recieved his from his father who brought it over from the old country.

Well... You and losing to Cornell back in '89.

It was my dying wish to have my own MGoBlog label. My children were a little confused at the time considering that they didn't know what an Internet (or an MGoBlog) was. But now my dreams have been fulfilled.

My father often told exhuberent tales of Jeff Daniels yelling "BAYONETS!" with all his might. Quite the Tally Ho for a Mainer, lest I pay it little mind.
|2 years 5 weeks ago||My adolescence||
When I was a kid, I spent most of my time playing Hoop-n-Stick with the neighbor lads. I rarely watched Michigan on TV because football and TV hadn't been invented yet. I also spent many a lazy summer days competing in the hammer throw. A worthwhile endeavor if you have the means (which is just a hammer).

That would be my good friend George S. Holden.
But boy did we have some wild times. I remember them as days of felicity where we would imbibe Fredrick Miller's High Life in such quantities that we would would be unable to fornicate with the fair maidens of Ann Arbor.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||I remember those fondly||
As a member of the '91 squad, I have but the fondest memories for those uniforms. Those were quite the trousers as well.
This picture is of course from my days on the '89 team when I chose to go with a mustachioed look.
