"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."

Feel free to take the spreadsheet data and do more analysis

|3 days 16 hours ago||I'll put some early results up here||
As of the first 237 responses:
Those of you with kids: 43 play/played, 39 didnt
Future kids: 107 will be allowed to play, 50 won't be.
View the spreadsheet here:
I'll try to keep it updated

I mentioned above that it's a non-random sample. It'll be interesting to see what the data says.
|3 days 17 hours ago||PIESMAN||
How is the Piesman trophy only a footnote? It's glorious!
Also, doesn't Norman Dale have redeeming qualities? It's been a while since I watched Hoosiers, but doesn't he develop a romance? The woman changes him, blah, blah. He does help rehab the alcoholic dad for that guys son, who's on his team.
And yes, he hit a kid, but wasn't corporal punishment way popular in the 1950s? Coaches today (see Rutgers... sigh) do just as bad or worse and in general I assume that attitudes towards corporal punsihment have become less "in favor" in the past 50 years.

22 minutes for the first 100 responses. I feel like that's a lot.
I'll try to have a new thread with the results Thursday afternoon. I'll also make the data available to Seth and Brian in case they want to do anything with it.
|3 days 18 hours ago||Same||
No kids yet, I plan to break the data down a few ways, including how future MGoParents' attitudes split between yes/no, vs the actual.
Also, I realized that for kids who didn't play football, it would have been good to break them down into "weren't allowed" or "no interest". Oops.
Call this the preliminary survey. I've got way too many answers already to try to change the questions now.

I've got 37 responses in about 5 minutes, we may get a decent sized sample

They were a good time. Are you coming to Chicago again?

Assume that $1.5 Mill goes to Army. Call operating costs the same.
$3M / 100,000 seats (again, easy math) means that if each seat was $30 Michigan could break even. Tickets are around $80, so $5M straight profit homey.
|4 days 16 hours ago||I, like many, liked the idea,||
I, like many, liked the idea, not the execution. I think that the number switching was annoying, the patches were too big, and all told it was a bit gimmicky. The main thing IMO was the lockers - the differently finished wood, etc. etc. drew too much attention and could have been difficult in a "team" setting.
That said, I would like if the numbers could stay in rotation. It's not like we don't all have our memories of player X in Jersey Y. Depending on when you went to school/started following Michigan Football lots of numbers mean different players in your brain. Is #77 Taylor Lewan? Jake Long? Etc. etc. To you who is #16? Is it Navarre? Shoelace? My point is, every number at Michigan carries weight. Yes, some more than others, but why not let the number itself carry weight? In the media notes for each game you could highlight the history of a jersey (Picture Musburger drawling "That tackle was made by Desmond Morgan, who's wearing Gerald Ford's old #48 jersey").
Small/no patches, take the lockers back to normal, cut the # switching and leave them in rotation while pumping the history through videos or media notes. Wouldn't that be a happy medium?

It's great when you can drive a car at 9/10ths and not be breaking laws.

Pioneered by Porsche in the 1980s on the 959... talk about a technology showcase.

The mitsu was the 3000GT

Pretty fast for a computer (I kid, mostly).
But the Doblo you can buy here, now! as a Ram Promaster City. They didn't bring over the tiny european engines though.

The exhaust brap-brap-brap on lift off is one of the best engineered sounds of the last decade

More of a looker than a racer, but those Italians sure can sing! I often hear one before I see it - there are quite a few that tool around Chicago.

I'm sure the engineering behind that is so interesting.
And so... stupid at times now that we have easy electronic controls
|4 days 19 hours ago||I bet||
I'm sure the temptation to Ferris Bueller Valet Guy was pretty high at times. Sounds like you've had lots of V12 experiences, depending on the AMGs. I think the most cylinders I've ever driven are V10s in Econoline rental trucks.

Had to take this now-and-then picture while at a Winery near South Haven. My blue GTI met it's much-older cousin!
|4 days 19 hours ago||Yep||
The 91 was factory geared at 4.10. Which did not make it a speed demon, but I did get it rolling from a stop in 4th once without stalling (was going for reverse...)
|4 days 19 hours ago||Ahhh, contacts||
Those are some of the stories I was hoping for. I'm trying to schedule time with someone I work with at GM to hit up the Milford proving grounds. I believe one of the parts I'm working on ends up in the new Camaro... hoping for an SS drive there!
|4 days 19 hours ago||Have to think about it||
If I define speed as 0-60 times I think the winner is the 2015 GTI at 6.0 seconds. Not that I could hit that time...
In terms of the slowest it looks like my 1991 Jeep Wrangler with the 4 cyl was the "winner" at 11.5 seconds. Those 4 angry squirrels were rated at 120 HP when new, in 1991. I bought it in 2003. Loved that Jeep though...
