I believe Detroit would be the most Progressive city in the state. It's been run by "progressives" for decades!
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Well said!||
...and Sennheiser deserves their (good) reputation -along with a slew of other high(er) end manufacturers.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Agreed!||
But I would +10 if he mentioned Stax!
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I have a pair of NAD Model||
I have a pair of NAD Model 20's I bought (locally) in 1985 that also still work great (many speakers last a very long time) -and they have actual tweeters! But your Bose 301's do have something my NAD's (and pretty much every other speaker) don't -light bulbs! I would bet, though, you'll be due for a re-foaming job sooner than later -but that's not an indication of quality.
(That being said....thank you for your service to our country! I hate to be critical of any service member, but I show Bose no mercy! :) )
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Funny||
There are so many headphones that are better than Bose that it ~IS~ funny!
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Ummmmm...||
....that's not saying much.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||As the old saying goes:||
"No highs, no lows -must be Bose!"
Sorry, I had to.
But to your credit, at least their headphones are a bit more highly regarded than they're speakers -but that might not be saying much.

Apparently Lloyd wants to sabbotage Harbaugh to Michigan....
|8 weeks 4 days ago||It's not "Nepotism"||
Nepotism: Nepotism is favoritism granted in politics or business to relatives. Cronyism: Cronysim is partiality to long-standing friends, especially by appointing them to positions of authority regardless of their qualifications.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||Out of curiosity...||
....what was the name of Beckman's sidekick before Brandstatter??
|2 years 31 weeks ago||BINGO!!!||
Yes, you are family...though I'd have to ask my mom exactly how -but most likely as I said before.
And, my daughter took violin lessons from Ji at your parents' house.
That is what we call "Dutch Bingo"!
|2 years 31 weeks ago||There is a...||
...Bloem clan that is Catholic and of no relation. If you're in that Dutch/CRC group, you almost certainly are. Your dad is prob. my mom's cousin. Out of curiosity, do you know an exchange student that teaches violin?
|2 years 31 weeks ago||Hey BlockM...||
...my mother's maiden name is "Bloem"...ya think we're related?
|2 years 31 weeks ago||His Dad:||
I heard his dad had some issues, as well....as in he was threatening the coach (football, I believe) to pull Drake and send him to a Detroit area (private) school if something didn't go his way....don't recall exactly what the issue was.
|2 years 31 weeks ago||I still think Harris to MSU...BUT...||
...I do wonder if the offer to Tommy Doles meant anything....as in Drake would pick M if his buddy Doles also gets an offer....
The timing makes me wonder...
And, for the record: I, too, am Dutch -and a GRCHS grad- but I have no actual connections to give me any info on this decision.
|2 years 31 weeks ago||Doles||
I am almost certain that he is the son of WOOD TV 8 (Grand Rapids/NBC) sports reporter Jack Doles. I don't know the dad's side, but mom's side of the family are quality people.
|2 years 31 weeks ago||Drake Harris||
I've heard from one area H.S. BB coach that he is a MSU lean at this point as Izzo is attending nearly all his bball and fball games. I'd love a kid from my (favorite) H.S. to play fball (or bball) for my favorite college team! Hoke needs to show just as much of a presense as Izzo!
|2 years 33 weeks ago||As a former...||
...T&F (emphasis on the F) athlete at a D3 school, I will say that our season is INCREDIBLY short. Practice starts on Feb 1. Can't throw outside for another 6 weeks. Throwing inside on a makeshift ring w/ an over sized indoor shot can only go so far. Then, when it IS warm enough to go outside, you are still dealing with melting snow flowing through the ring...as well as mud and general yuckiness. Then, the spring trip down south.
We did compete against D1 schools on that trip (and did relatively well) -against both Big 10 (Minn.) ~AND~ SEC (Auburn). It seemed the SEC schools dominated running (especially sprinting) while the North schools were better at field events -my 4th place finish for a DIII athlete was pretty good, I thought, but Auburn had no representation in the shot.
And then our "season" was roughly 2 weeks long. 4 actual meets and then the conference finals. And then we were done. The more gifted athletes that qualified for nationals had another couple weeks. Certainly not the lengthy season of Basketball and Football...or even, dare I mention...soccer.
Thankfully, indoor seasons have now begun at my alma mater, but we didn't have the facility for that at that time.
While I know your reference is to D1, I still think that,even w/ a genuine indoor season, the short and cold outdoor season keeps a lot of talent from coming here.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||Just found this...||
...video. 1984 Olympic 3000M Steeplechase Final. I remember watching this as Brian was a bit of a local hero as well as a not too distant relative (but not close enough for me to know him at that time). He is a former coach (though I wasn't a runner) and now someone I consider a friend. He is one of the classiest individuals I know.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||You may be...||
...right on that. Certainly, he is the last American w/ an Olympic medal in the Steeplechase.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||Don't forget...||
...that a Michigan alumnus won the NCAA Steeplechase in 1983. Went on to win a Bronze in the Olympics the very next year.
Saw him just today...got a "man hug" from him, even.
|3 years 9 weeks ago||Just for the record...||
Just for the record...it's been 4,753 days since Ohio State beat Michigan without a CHEATER as coach!!! Go Blue!!!

I ~JUST~ saw a replica of Crisler Arena a couple hours ago at a local pawn shop.
I didn't get the price, but can look into it if you are interested.
|3 years 21 weeks ago||I was at the very first||
I was at the very first weather (lightning) delay a few years ago. They let people out of the stadium and back in (w/ a stub) during/after that delay as well. I think the idea was that they could get in their cars for safety reasons.
Most stayed in the stands, however -I don't remember it raining as bad as I saw it on TV during the Western game.
|3 years 23 weeks ago||The stipulation of being in||
The stipulation of being in my presence, of couse, would go a long way in proving any of those negatives I posted.
If SysMark were to be in my presence today in order to prove those 4 negatives, I would allow him to prove that
a) I am NOT dead
b) I am NOT the moon
However, with respect to proving I am NOT a female and that I am NOT carrying a gun -that was yesterday. Today, I just might be carrying my gun. So, proving that I am NOT a female will occur only over my dead body.
Nevertheless, it is still logically possible to do.

Sooner or later we'll hit the prophesied 144,000!!!!
|3 years 23 weeks ago||Like||
|3 years 24 weeks ago||Actually, you CAN prove a||
Actually, you CAN prove a negative. The belief that you cannot is a misnomer.
Right now, you can prove that I am:
-NOT a female
-NOT carrying a gun
-NOT the moon
All those are "negatives".
The first result from googling "can you prove a negative?"
|3 years 25 weeks ago||U-Haul||
I took a U-Haul to a Who concert back in '89 from GR to the Silverdome. Put a couch, couple of easy chairs, coffee table and a pony-keg back there.
That was kinda fun.

I don't ~hate~ rap, per say as I listen to a few songs here and there. But the following rap I link to below brought tears to my 75 year old father's eyes:
