I went to Beer Exchange in Kzoo once last summer. If you're already a bit on the tipsy side, it can get fun and a little dangerous (i.e. - "It crashed, buy buy buy!!!"). Not sure I'd ever bother going there if watching a game was my primary focus is watching a game...

Seeing as I didn't get a 5 year gift (not to mention my date is only a few days after my birthday), I'm expecting something quite nice for my 6 year MGoAnniversary this year from Brian and co. How about a "sexy mods of MGoBlog" calendar? What I wouldn't do to have LSA in a bikini on my wall for a month or two...

So, a tweet from god knows who, with no named reliable source, and that contains very little info as to the who (besides assumptions), the what, and the why. While this could end up getting interesting, until there's something more solid, lest we want to turn this into baseless rumors, this thread needs to...
Edit: LSA's elaborating comment just made it a little more interesting. By the power invested in me by absolutely no one...

Besides, assuming the context and writing my thoughts takes less time and effort than reading, intepreting and then writing my thoughts. This is a sports blog, I am but a lowly member. I'm in it to spill my thoughts, not to put in effort. If that sounds selfish and careless, that's because it is.

If there was ever a time that a punishment should have been seen through to the end, regardless of any amount "good behavior," this was it. Poor form, NCAA, poor form.

I don't know the full context of why he said what he did, but it sounds like he is not comprehending that the overwhelming bulk of the criticism recently is meant for the team in general and more specifically the coaching staff.
This means one of two things: He's either too oblivious to the reality that the vocal majority of the Michigan fanbase has now officially turned on him (which means he's bigger moron than we ever feared), or he is conciously deflecting the criticism meant for him on to the players and fans and then using it to buy himself some false pity, which makes him a complete and utter douchebag.
In either case, I think it's an absolutely moronic thing to say and shows that he's not only folding to pressure on the field, but also off the field now. The Hoke doomsday clock is now at 11:59 and I'm honestly no longer seeing any way he can stop that clock from striking at midnight...

|2 weeks 2 days ago||Happened to me in baseball,||
Happened to me in baseball, with batting specifically. By the end of my freshman year, I finished over .300 with multiple homers and a ton of extra base hits despite not having much speed. I even closed out the season going 10/11 in my last 3 games with only one of those hits being a single. The ball was looking like a damn watermelon and I had never been more confident about anything in my life, especially as I just got invited to play summer ball with the varsity players.
To prep for the summer league, my dad took me to the batting cage. First few rounds was nothing but sending the ball right back up the middle. Then, my dad made me switch to 45mph despite my whining that it was a completely unrealistic speed to try hit. I couldn't hit a single ball, no matter how much I tried to compensate. I went back into the high speed cage and I couldn't hit those either. The watermelon sized baseballs had turned to raisins, my mechanics were off and my confidence was permanently shaken. I had lost my swing and never got it back. My baseball career ended in my junior year and I never forgave my dad for the batting cage experience that gave me the hitting yips.

Well, I would know because I watch football and knee braces aren't stealthy accessories. I know even more because when I played high school football as an OL over 10 years ago (which was before player safety was taken as serious as it now is), it was required for all OL to wear them. So at least that long ago.

The fact that acnumber1 is worried has certainly gotten me worried now...

I refuse to formulate any sort of opinion on this team or its coaches based on their performance against App State. Next week, and more specifically Big Ten conference play is when we will all have a better idea.
I will say it was a better outing from the O-Line than I ever expected. When you think about, it's quite a sad testament to the recent state of our OL that I had to brace myself for anything other than what went down on Saturday...

As soon as you said that, I had to think about it for a bit. I don't think I have ever have called Penn State by it's full name before to the point I almost forgot that it was a nickname...

Most or at least very many teams require their O-lineman to wear knee braces and have for a while now.

|3 weeks 2 days ago||Last I checked when I was||
Last I checked when I was thinking of bringing my kid to a basketball game last year, there is no age limit, even if you're bringing your baby who was born yesterday. For Crisler and the Big House, every single person going to the game needs a ticket, and whether they're going to put their butt in that actual seat is irrelevant. A bit ridiculous as many sporting venues use the 2 years and under get in free policy.
Damn you Dave Brandon!!!! /s (or am I...)
The oldest I've seen any major college or pro sports allow free entry for children on a regular basis is 3 years old and even that's rare, so I think you'll be paying for your 4 year old to watch any game from here on out.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I can't speak specifically to||
I can't speak specifically to bringing a kid to the Big House, but I do have recent experience on bringing my 1 year old daughter (turns 1 on Friday) to a Tigers game a couple weeks ago. It wasn't all that bad, but it is not something I plan on doing until she is a few years older, as it was tough. As there is no room for her to safely walk or sit by herself, she had to be on our lap or carried. This made things pretty annoying/obnoxious when it came to people having to get up from our row or vice versa. Also, CoPa was pretty lenient. We were able to bring in a fully stocked diaper bag as well as a travel stroller. If I'm not mistaken, you'd be hard pressed to be able to bring in much of anything into the Big House.
She did end up loving it though for the most part when we got to sit in our seats uninterrupted. She thought the roar of the crowd and the clapping was the greatest thing ever, and she was old enough that the sights and sounds weren't over-stimulating for her. She also made a lot of friends in the form of people who were more interested in making funny faces and speaking baby to her than watching the game. Regardless, she only made it through the 4th inning until she let us know it was time to go. So, add in the added restrictions of Michigan stadium, the increase in action and sounds, and it creates a place that I don't plan on taking my daughter to for a long while. Hope this helped and good luck in whatever you decide to do.

I get very emotional during Michigan football games (see overly upset), as I'm sure many of us here do, so I honestly prefer to watch the game at home even when it's a game I have the oppurtunity to go to. Heck, my wife even had to drag me out to the OSU game last season and the MSU game the year before because I didn't think I could handle watching them in person. So yeah, give me some beer and/or Cuba Libres, some appetizers I can pop in the oven throughout the afternoon, and few pillows to punch, and I'm ready to make a day of it. The less people around me, the better (for all parties involved).

Usually, they shoot for running production until Labor day I believe. However, ever since the rest of the country found out about it, Bell's cranks out so much of it that you can easily find it in stores well past that date...

Oregon's the best? Well, that goes to show how little I know about craft beer outside of my own little bubble. On another note, when I lived in Arizona, I was never dissapointed with the output from the hometown breweries, most especially Four Peaks. I would've thought they'd be higher up on this list...
