For pooping, silly.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Can't Buy Me Love||
Cheesy '80s movie with mostly terrible acting, but I love it. Quality performances by Patrick Dempsey and a young Seth Green, and Cindy Mancini was so hot. "You shit on my house!!!!"
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Scotch||
A little Macallan 12 to help ring in the new year. Very tasty.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||30-3||
Damn late FG ruins the shutout.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||Nice||
That was certainly a nice catch, but also a very Pro thro(w).
|16 weeks 3 days ago||Hart||
I can't wait until we have another back that can make a move like the one Hart dropped in that gif.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||Agreed||
I was about to post the same thing. That makes me sad. Until last year, my only reaction to that play would have been "that was a great hit." Now, my brain has been conditioned to think that the refs would call targeting on that.
I understand they have to clean up some of the violence, but not all helmet-to-helmet hits are created equal. The gif above is damn near a form tackle. There is a difference between using your helmet as a weapon, and making a great tackle where the defenders helmet touches the offensive players helmet.

JUB's a lucky guy. No one ever yells "down in front" to him at a football game.
|20 weeks 20 hours ago||Jealous||
I have been to Lambeau many times, but I get chills every time I walk into the stadium.
|21 weeks 2 days ago||Close Call||
I was supposed to be at a meeting in SoHo that morning, but it got moved to White Plains. Came out of the meeting, and everyone in the office was freaking out. Went back to the hotel and watched the coverage with 50+ people in the hotel bar, most of whom lived in Manhattan and were trying to contact friends and family. Very sad.
|21 weeks 5 days ago||Great Event||
I was in the Glee Club from 91-95 and went back to Ann Arbor for the 150th reunion weekend. It was an amazing event and it was so much fun to sing with alums from multiple decades whose love for Michigan has never faded.
|23 weeks 5 days ago||DB Customs?||
Can we talk about the fact that the seller is DB Customs? I guess the split M is ok now that it's not his job to worry about the brand anymore.
|24 weeks 4 days ago||Wish I Could Be There||
I'll have to raise a glass at the JUB book signing on the 29th in Chicago instead.
|25 weeks 10 hours ago||Barry||
I have a picture with Barry Sanders at Scorekeepers on my graduation night in 1995. I also got to meet Elvis Grbac and Yale Van Dyne in the bleachers at Wrigley in 2007. Great guys. Elvis is a giant.
|25 weeks 1 day ago||Match||
I think the white pants look solid. All I care about is the stripes on the jerseys and pants matching the helmet. Nothing worse than clashing color schemes.
|25 weeks 1 day ago||Options||
Quartz is easier to maintain than granite. Butcher block is good for an island, or better yet, part of an island. If you are looking for a unique, country house feel, cement counters are pretty trendy. They put a finish on them and it looks great. If that is a look you like.
|25 weeks 1 day ago||Not Appropriate||
No matter the validity of anything in the OP, it seems like this is inappropriate for this blog. The whole thing makes me feel kinda dirty.
|25 weeks 5 days ago||Only One||
1/1/98 Rose Bowl. Flew into Vegas. Drove to LA. Slept in our car in a parking garage in Pasadena on NYE after hitting the bars. Scalped tix to the game. Totally worth it.
|25 weeks 5 days ago||Impressive||
"He catches the ball naturally, away from his hands." That is a helluva trick.
|28 weeks 3 days ago||My List||
If it is based on how happy a team's championship would make me, but not necessarily the order of how passionate I am about the team, then:
|32 weeks 4 days ago||Seconded||
If the project ever makes it to Chicago, I'd love to help out. I think you would find a ton of alums that feel the same way.
|33 weeks 1 day ago||First Time||
I will be celebrating my first Father's Day as a Father today. My boy, Jack, was born in March. Going to the in-laws to hang out by the pool and grill out. Supposed to be 85 and sunny in the Chicago burbs, so it should be a great day. Also, heading to the UP for the 4th to celebrate with my Dad.
|33 weeks 5 days ago||Bill Wirtz||
The turning point was the death of Bill Wirtz in September 2007. Yes, the team was terrible but people just couldn't stand giving money to an owner who had such clear disdain for the fans. Once Rocky took over, he started making changes immediately. The result was a better organization, better team, and better relationship with the fans. Increased attendance followed.
|35 weeks 1 day ago||Why?||
Why would you post on a Michigan blog, only to be a giant douchebag? I hope that someday you will have a happy life that will replace your need to post such vitriol on a random message board. Godspeed, my angry friend.
|36 weeks 2 days ago||And...||
I have just poured a double Angel's Envy over one large ice cube.
|36 weeks 2 days ago||Congrats, Brother||
Welcome to the family! This should be the best day of your life, so far. Many great days are still to come. Enjoy the hell out of all of them.
|37 weeks 6 hours ago||Booze||
Angel's Envy. Rocks. Delicious.
|38 weeks 2 days ago||Upper Hand Lager||
Bell's opened a brewery in Escanaba (my hometown) called Upper Hand Brewery. One of their brews is called Upper Hand Lager. It is delicious. Also great? Escanaba Black Beer.
|40 weeks 1 day ago||Awesome||
I am so excited about this pick. I haven't bought a Packers jersey in a long time. Might have to change that.
|49 weeks 2 days ago||Upper Hand||
Having the last of the Upper Hand I picked up in my hometown of Escanaba over Thanksgiving.
