Somebody with great photoshop skills should have a field day with those Bentley photos. The one from the 80s is begging for Lloyd Brady.
Sadly, I have no such skills.

First home game freshman year. I love the fact that this was my first game because all UM fans know what I'm talking about, and all of my ND friends want to punch me every time I bring it up.
I met Elvis Grbac and Yale Van Dyne in the bleachers at Wrigley a few summers ago and I had to thank Elvis for making my first game unforgettable.

Anyone else see that picture of Wheatley and think he could benefit from joining Pipkins on his diet?

I live close to Belmont/Sheffield, so we might head over there to check out Wedding Banned. Nothing better than drinking in the street.
|51 weeks 5 days ago||Summer in Chicago||
Hoping the rain stays away all weekend here in Chicago.
Today - cut out of work early and decide which beer garden to drink at.
Tomorrow - maybe beach, definately street festival at night
Sunday - probably something indoors if it is going to be 95 degrees
Monday - spend the day of the girlfriend's dad's boat on Lake Michigan
Tuesday - curse the lottery for ignoring me again and making me go back to work.
Have a safe and happy Memorial Day everyone. Go Blue!

That was my favorite part, even though you could replace Purdue with Minnesota, Indiana, Illinois, Northwestern...

I thought Bacon was great tonight and waited to get the book signed so I could briefly speak with him. I made it 28 pages in while waiting in line and am excited to read it. I'm sure it won't all be good news, but I'd rather read the truth than the fluff I'm used to reading in the MSM.
BTW, I confirmed that he absolutely reads mgoblog.

Cans is actually an offical (endorsed by the alumni association) UM bar this year. They are actually having a kickoff party tonight.

Do you know how often the map is updated? I just posted two new Chicago UM bars in the thread.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||New Official Bars in Chicago||
Last weekend, I went to a UM Football Kickoff party at Jack's, a new official UM bar in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago. Decent food, very cool beer garden with TVs. Not sure what their gameday drink specials will be. Address? Address:
2856 N. Southport Ave.
Chicago, IL 60657
Also, Cans in Bucktown is also now an offical UM bar. Big place, lots of TVs.
1640 N. Damen

I do recall the Lions beating the Packers, but it's a whole different situation when the backup QB has to come into a game because of an injury vs having a whole week to gameplan around the backup being the starter. I think that is why there was such a stark contrast between Flynn against the Lions and Flynn against NE.
I do think the Lions are the second best team in the NFC North this year if 1) Stafford stays healthy and 2) McNabb doesn't play out of his mind. As a former Michigan resident, I'd actually like to see the Lions return to decency (while still consistently losing to the Pack).
|1 year 41 weeks ago||Not Sure I Agree||
Obviously, you didn't see the Packers play at NE last year without Rodgers. Matt Flynn had a drive at the end to win that game. While the Packers' win total without Rodgers would suffer, I really don't think they would "fall apart." They probably have the best WR, OL, LB, and DB position groups in the division. Unless they have a repeat of the injury plague of 2010, the Packers could still win 9-10 games with Flynn starting all year. The schedule just isn't that tough.

I've been a Packers fan since birth. I love that the two Super Bowl victories of my lifetime were made possible because of the contributions of the two UM Heisman Trophy winners of my lifetime.
|1 year 42 weeks ago||Good for Indiana||
I have no problem with IU and have a lot of friends who went to school there, so I'm happy for them. I'd like to see them get to Northwestern-level respectability, and he might help them get some more talent and turn the corner.
Either way, this young man is going to pull some seriously hot tail in Bloomington.

|1 year 49 weeks ago||Ohio Might Care||
Not sure if this would be considered income to the IRS because, as was stated above, value was traded for value. But if Ohio is anything like Illinois, there are likely Sales and Use Tax implications. For example, if I sell my car tomorrow for $10,000, the state is going to want a piece of that. And I'm guessing Ohio could use any tax revenue they can get at this point.

I had to correct you on your spelling of Escanaba, since it is my hometown. And yes, they play some very good softball in Escanaba and Gladstone.
