I'm an easy target. Every hype video or glimpse of the band taking the field brings a tear. At any other point in the year... Post-NC clip of Griese receiving MVP. Brock Mealer (obviously). "The Great Michigan Spirit" (Ufer). Junior's post-Sugar Bowl MVP speech (memorably described on EDSBS as the time Hemingway "gloriously loses his shit").

...named after Bennie O but more of a McGary - sometimes gets overly enthusiastic and stumbles over his long gangly limbs but can't be beat when it comes to personality and sense of humor!
|1 year 23 weeks ago||Congratulations to Meryl and Charlie!||
I don't know much about ice dancing but their skating always appears to be absolutely flawless. Go blue!!!
|1 year 43 weeks ago||I met up with you all for the ND game -||
nice group of folks, although only a few of us actually watched the game and stayed until the end. I've never been to Livery Stable so I'll be curious to check it out - thanks for organizing!
|1 year 47 weeks ago||YES. This.||
|1 year 47 weeks ago||Confirmed.||
I have some.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||My first game too!||
Went with my dad and big sister. I recall reading that it was the first game Jordan Kovacs attended as well.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Obviously I knew females were||
Obviously I knew females were in the minority around here but WOW.
27, female, married, one dog, zero kids, lifelong Michigan fan, BSE 2008, currently reside in central VA.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Graduated in 2008; the||
Graduated in 2008; the intense marching band calf muscles have not yet gone away.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||Second||
Another IOE working in healthcare here - HCA always seems to be hiring. Healthcare industry is a great place to work if you don't mind getting paid less than most engineers ;)
|2 years 39 weeks ago||Same here. The free taxis||
Same here. The free taxis that drove around picking up drunk students on their way home from parties used to occasionally offer to drive us to Revelli.
|2 years 47 weeks ago||Best moment of the game.||
Best moment of the game. High-five to the camera guy who caught that.
|2 years 47 weeks ago||1995, M v. Virginia - ended,||
1995, M v. Virginia - ended, of course, with Dreisbach to Hayes in the last second for the win! I was 10 and had no idea football games were that exciting!
|2 years 48 weeks ago||Cannot wait to celebrate the||
Cannot wait to celebrate the start of the season with the surprisingly large number of Michigan faithful we have met in central Virginia... complete with Koegel's hot dogs and a block M-shaped cake!
|2 years 50 weeks ago||I would pay a million dollars||
I would pay a million dollars to see Al Borges do karaoke.
|3 years 3 weeks ago||Are there any fairs around||
Are there any fairs around the Cville or central VA area?
|3 years 5 weeks ago||That's my dog! Although||
That's my dog! Although people usually guess "and the Jets" over "Oosterbaan".
|3 years 5 weeks ago||Former coaches provide great||
Former coaches provide great names - ours is Bennie, also a yellow lab mix!
|3 years 7 weeks ago||We definitely had a Michigan||
We definitely had a Michigan toilet seat growing up that said "Flush twice - it's a long way to Columbus".
|3 years 7 weeks ago||I definitely wore a Michigan||
I definitely wore a Michigan garter for my wedding - had to represent somehow!
|3 years 20 weeks ago||My husband and I have been||
My husband and I have been debating various Michigan-themed names for our non-existant dogs and children for years. As long as he doesn't vote to name a human Fielding, I'm good to go.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Both parents went to||
Both parents went to Michigan... grandpa taught my older sister all about Michigan football, she taught me and the rest is history!
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Nope - the one with her hat||
Nope - the one with her hat sideways, gansta-style. Awesome.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||I'm fairly certain one of||
I'm fairly certain one of those sorority girls is my future sister-in-law. Sigh. I have a lot to teach her.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||That game holds a special||
That game holds a special place in my heart as it was my first ever game in the Big House - I was 9 and had no idea what was going on other than that the ending was crazy exciting.
2005 Penn State may be my #1... sitting on the field with the marching band to witness that Manningham catch and then rushing the field was unforgettable.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Fellow Cvilllian here - I'm||
Fellow Cvilllian here - I'm watching with some Tech fans but they're all friendly. Hopefully we're still friends at the end of the game.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||The segment was about Molk's||
Very touching - I'd be lying if I said I didn't tear up a bit!
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Go Blue from central||
Go Blue from central Virginia! Will be watching the game with some Hokies - let's hope I see some sad faces tonight!
|3 years 31 weeks ago||CANNOT. WAIT.||
|3 years 33 weeks ago||Absolutely. The difference||
Absolutely. The difference is very obvious when you see a player from another team interviewed - "I've done a lot for my team" and "I think I deserve ____ award", etc. Our young men are always very humble and respectful of their teammates and coaches. It's great to watch them get rewarded for their hard work and perseverance!
