|3 weeks 13 hours ago||I was accepted to Michigan||
I was accepted to Michigan but ended up not going due to the cost of out-of-state tuition. Even with grade inflation I don't think there's any way I'd be able to get in now. Little macdaddy will be starting his senior year at Michigan and he and his friends seem WAY smarter than I was at that age. Maybe the book smarts are close but their cultural IQ (due to the internet) is lightyears beyond where I was. Ultimately it's probably the cultural IQ/social aptitude/ street smarts that contribute more to a successful life.

I watched us win one softball NC with my kids when they were little and I want to watch another one now that little macdaddy is a senior at Michigan. Go Blue!

Ran a marathon with what turned out to be stress fractures in my tibia and fibula. Thought at first it was just tight calves but eventually the pain became overwhelming and I ended up gimping in the last 5 miles (althought I did manage to run hard across the finish line). Pain didn't go away for two weeks and I got a bone scan which showed the fractures. I like to say I ran a marathon on a broken leg.

This ^^^ X 1000.
The '72 Summit Series was probably the biggest sporting event of my life. As kid in Windsor at the time I can attest to the fact that the entire country stopped functioning during this game. Everything came to a complete halt. They rolled TVs into the classrooms (unprecedented) so we could all watch. When Paul Henderson scored the series-winning goal with 0:34 left the spasm of national ecstacy was felt from St. John's to Vancouver. Indescribable. And awesome.

This shouldn't surprise me because, kids these days, but good lord, this may actually be the single dumbest idea I've ever heard. Somebody please derail this. Now. I'll contribute to whatever fund is created to stop this madness.

Early '90's Runnin' Rebels were seriously bad-ass. Loved the Shark. Sad week for college hoops.

WD's rise, fall and phoenix-like rebirth to the pinnacle of MGoUsers (Dear Leader and a couple others aside of course) has been nothing short of miraculous. I'm honored to have been a witness.

This is gold! Right in my wheelhouse as a teenage Michigan fan. Man it would be fun to turn back the clock and have an old-school broadcast once a year.

Even turning this game around now doesn't fix the fundamental problems that will plague this team the rest of the way.

Yes please. Reminiscent of my early Michigan fandom in the '70's. Of course whatever Coach wants is fine by me.

Late to the party but OMG, Saturday Searchbits?! I don't even care what it says anymore (although this one had lots of good stuff), I'm addicted to its mere presence.
