"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."

|2 years 7 weeks ago||lol||
I actually went back and added the 10 month thing after I typed it and then read it. I figured it was only a matter of time before someone added this.
My dad always told me dirty minds think alike.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||pillow pet||
My 10 month old daughter loves the pillow pet. It is very soft and easy for her to grab and play with.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Leaving work early today||
Did a lot this week at work, so I'm leaving early today. Heading to Akron in the morning to see the in-laws. Get to take my 9 month old to the kiddie pool tomorrow. While she is going to enjoy it, I can't help but think of the kiddie pool as the "pee-pee" pool. Immediate shower after!

I live in Lexington and work for UK. They have already turned over cars and burned couches for the last two games, so win or lose couches are going to burn again tonight. They need to come up with something better.
|2 years 18 weeks ago||In 1993||
In 1993 I was in basic training in South Carolina. My drill was a UNC fan and he knew I was a Michigan fan. The morning after the game he comes in to the barracks and says, “Private lexgoblue, your boys lost, AND they can’t count. DROP!” I had no idea what he was talking about. I did so many pushups that I lost count (and still had to go do muscle failure PT). I did not see what really happened and why I got smoked until a few months later.
When I was accepted into Michigan a few years after that, this was one of the first things that popped into my head. Chris Webber…you got me smoked…sigh.

The basketball tournament also has a large gambling history associated with it, so people who would never watch a college basketball game are filling out their brackets and tuning in. Not all the bets are for money either (sadly my wife has bragging rights this year). Would a four team football playoff (or eight) generate even close to this kind of attention?
|2 years 21 weeks ago||Mitosis and anal sex||
During a lesson on mitosis, I had a student ask me if a girl could get pregnant through anal sex...his cousin, who was also in my class, then proceeded to ask him if he had eggs up his ass. Hell, even I had to laugh at that one.
|2 years 22 weeks ago||Me too.||
This is how I found mgoblog too. I can't believe it has been that long.

My wife (and Charles Woodson)
|3 years 10 weeks ago||Simulacrum||
I believe the term you are looking for is simulacrum (the copy of a copy). Just had to get my nerdiness in.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||Major problem here in KY||
My wife was treating a patient who had previously broken her arm several weeks ago. The woman came into the hospital trying to get more pain meds but was refused. The patient stepped out to go smoke and used the curb to rebreak her arm. Desparate act of a highly addicted, desparate woman.

I'm driving from Lexington, KY to Akron to pick up my father-in-law and then heading to AA. It will be about 8 hrs in the car.

I found out yesterday my wife and I are having a baby. Posbangs all around!!!
|3 years 36 weeks ago||My Concern||
Emotion. Coming off of such a huge emotional game, I do worry about the team's emotional level not just for the game but also during the practices this week. This is when the coaches and team leaders need to step up and keep the young players focused.
I wouldn't be surprised to see M come out a little flat at the start of the game, but I fully expect this team to find their focus and relentlessly score on Purdue.

Vinopal's stop of the RB at the line on 3rd and 1. Huge play.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Amazing!!!||
My voice is gone! It was worth it!!

It is nice to see Dantonio back on the sidelines again.
|3 years 39 weeks ago||Pigskin Picks||
Maybe I wasn't completely crazy for picking NW over MSU in Pigskin Picks. Long way to go though.
|3 years 39 weeks ago||PSU||
As much as I want to get a better feel for Penn State for next week, I don't know if I can stand to watch them play Minnesota. Zzzz.
|3 years 39 weeks ago||Position Swap||
"Position Swap" sounds like something you'd find late night on Cinemax.
|3 years 43 weeks ago||Braylon Conundrum||
I remember two distinct things about Braylon on campus:
1. When he was with the track team, he always parked his SUV on the sidewalk just outside the indoor track. This to me was an "athlete of privilege" thing that he was allowed to get away with just like other high profile athletes.
2. He took his time to sign a small stack of programs for me that I gave out to inner-city high school kids. It was an amazing gesture.
I'm conflicted about him.

I usually associate VT with good special teams. They are playing "special" tonight.

If this is an ugly uniform contest, I think it would be a tie. My eyes hurt.

My wife was a two time All American on the UM track team. I have all kinds of funny stories about her, but I would like to stay married.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||How about the Market Square||
My seething rage after Michigan's last Alamo Bowl appearance has clouded my memory (stupid Sun Belt officials) but I seem to remember having some fun at the Market Square (El Mercado). It's about 10ish blocks from the riverwalk, but not as crowded. Some of the stores were selling junk but not all. Great food there as well.
|4 years 15 weeks ago||I prefer Woodford as well||
I have a bottle at home with my name engraved on it (gift from the in-laws). Once in awhile I like to say, "There's a bottle of bourbon at home with my name on it!"

The Victor (and just call him Victor)
|4 years 18 weeks ago||In Lexington||
I have been in Lexington for almost two years. Last year we had some furniture delivered to our house and I started talking to the delivery guys about UK basketball. They both said they don't care if there are any violations as long as UK wins a national championship. MANY people here think the same way.
