As a high school art teacher in a pretty blighted area of Detroit (Brightmoor) I know what a difference the chance to be able to MAKE something really gives the kids a chance to be themselves. Many of my students only come to school so they can participate in art class/art after school activities.

I just meant they liked leaving them in the west because it created better competition over there, and that it's silly to organize things that way.

Reading this article, and its replies, has made me begin to think I'm a bit selfish.
After the game had ended, I like just about everyone around these parts, was disappointed.
Because I didn't get to celebrate? Because I didn't get to gloat at work today? Because I didn't get to watch these kids celebrate?
Looking back, this entire season has been nothing short of perfect. Not perfect in terms of record, but the team, the individuals, the games, have been more than any one of us could ask for.
The sadness has been replaced with pride, and the best kind of memories have filled the voids.
This is a loss I do not want to forget. I wish we could go back in time and watch this tournament run again, knowing the outcome, simply because it was so fun.
Win or loose last night, the kids would begin to continue their lives, playing for a contract, or playing for The Team, or being accountants or whatever. That is what is sad. That no matter what, last night was it. I should be proud of , and happy for them for giving me so much excitement, so much joy over the last few months. Happy for them they accomplished so much.
Only sad that it ended, not the way it happened.
I love you all and the fact that this place exists.

Someone should come up with a great pre game speech about the importance of "The Team" and how someday these players might be playing for a contract, and not something which is solely The Team.

I really feel like the offense will be very entertaining/interesting with a dominating (hopefully) O-Line and pro style leanings, with a QB that could take off and do very un-pro style things...

That is the kind of inside joke that makes the front page un-readable.

Yes, serious. Acrylic. It was a commission piece. Not because I like the Kid.

Happiness abounds. Finished a 5' square portrait of Kid Rock. Thankfully lost track of time, avoided the crash, and now know the great news.

Some days you just need good news. This was one. I was hoping for commitment news. This is way classier.

I always thought they should have just re-tiled the troughs with the Big 10 teams logos. Relieving yourself on a big mosaic O or a weird black and yellow hawk like thing would have been so relieving.
