Not to be that guy, but Laith is a good friend of mine and we hung out regularly my last two years in AA ('00-'01). He usually played gigs on weekend nights but would often stop by for after hours fun at our place at around 2AM (as did many other friends). Amazingly sweet guy...never heard anyone say a bad thing about him.
He also was the first person to turn me on to The Band and Bruce Hornsby.
We used to go see him weekly (Thursday nights?) at a bar in Ypsi where he would host open mic blues night. There were usually 20ish people in the bar, and most would be blown away by his talent. My favorite covers were Badge and the Bowie songs. I'm hoping he does a Bowie tune on The Voice, as it would be quite appropriate this year and could maybe turn some of these mainstream kids who watch the show on to Bowie.

Haha, totally didn't catch that!
I never said I taught a spelling class ;)

As someone who used to teach research methods, this is a pet peave of mine as well.

Yep, me too. I was living in Bangor Maine at the time, and drove down to Boston to meet up with some college buddies to watch the season opener (with super high expectations for that season) and hang for the weekend. After the Horror most of my friends went to Fenway for a Red Sox game, but I was too depressed. Drove home, stopping at the New Hampshire highway liquor store on the way, and drank whiskey and watched Magnolia by myself that night.
One of my buddies told me about MGoBlog that weekend, and on Monday the emo cat pictures were the only thing that gave me some comfort.

Bought a 2015 GTI a few months ago. Love that car, and though lots of people mod them up I'm plenty happy with the stock acceleration. Just wish it had blue instead of red accents!

I've been out to Mt Hood a bunch in the last few months, and it's been killer. Meadows has had more snow than any resort in the US this year!
|11 weeks 16 hours ago||Yep. I have no idea what||
Yep. I have no idea what they're even supposed to be. Our bball unis may not be as iconic as the football ones, but I think these short are even uglier than the clowniformz worn by the football team. Surprised they haven't been brought up more often.

Anyone know where we can watch the Black and Blue documentary?

I think it's words to live by. The video that condensed the speech is very well done. I'm a psychologist, and I show this to pretty much all of my clients when I teach about mindfulness and choice in how we see/experience the world.

Pizza House is good, but doesn't compare to most pizza joints in Jersey. Hopefully he tries Jets Pizza (which I miss the most since leaving Michigan) and the meaty hippie hash at Fleetwood.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||I think Iowa is the real deal||
I think Iowa is the real deal this year, and I'm glad we at least hung in there and made it a game after getting punched in the nose early.
Still gonna blame the ugly ass shorts for the loss, as well as all previous and future losses. We've had some ugly alternate football uniforms, but I could at least understand what they were going for. I've never seen us wear something this pointlessly ugly. Given how much attention the football clownifomz received, I'm surprised these shorts have been mostly an afterthought on here.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||I'll admit it, I thought||
I'll admit it, I thought Harbaugh was just protecting Rudock's ego/confidence from the fans/media with that "not even close" comment. Very glad I was wrong.
|21 weeks 1 day ago||I thought the football team||
I thought the football team looked good. What the hell's going on with those basketball shorts though? Say what you will about the football clowniformz, I could see how some people (teenage males mostly, I'd guess) find them cool. I can't see how anyone could like the bball shorts. Didn't Hackett or Beilein or someone have to approve those?
I know the football unis have a lot more tradition behind them, but I'm surprised I haven't seen more backlash on this blog over those shorts.

Am I the only one who finds this bordering on lame because it's so clearly contrived? Great effort and enthusiasm, but I prefer spontaneous celebration to the choreographed variety.
|22 weeks 4 days ago||I have the large men's/unisex||
I have the large men's/unisex shirt and it fits like a typical large. No shrinking issues. The only feedback I've gotten is that the women's shirts do shrink a bit, so for those you may want to order a size up unless you're ok with a tight fitting shirt.

I've wondered for a while about the possibility of option C: Harbaugh may have just been saying that to boost Jake's confidence and avoid a QB controversy with the fans/media.

Four of us will be at the Downtown Westin. I guess we'll tailgate around Dinkytown?

There shouldn't be much effort to go through the MGoBlog referral link. I just bookmark it so whenever I go to Amazon it uses that link.
|28 weeks 1 day ago||I'll be in Section 210||
I'll be in Section 210 (Visitor side, 40 yard line) row 30 with three friends. None of us have been to Minneapolis before, so will be checking this thread for activity ideas.

Vivid Seats. They seemed to have some tickets that I didn't see on tiqiq (sec 210 row 2), and I was ready to pay $149 for them until I saw the crazy fees on the final "confirm purchase" screen.

Finally replaced the super cool Denard heisman pose drawing I've had as my iphone 6 lock screen since I bought it a year ago. Thanks!
|28 weeks 6 days ago||I just spent about 2 hours||
I just spent about 2 hours scouring various sites, and almost pulled the trigger on seats in section 210 row 2 for $149 until the last page of the checkout informed me of $40 in service fees per ticket. Ended up going with section 210 (between the 40 and the 50, Michigan side) row 30. It's about half the size of Michigan stadium so I figured that can't be too bad, and I'd rather be up high in the middle than low in the endzone or corner.
Tiqiq directed me to Seat Smart, which only has a $10 service fee for the entire order. I couldn't figure out how to use the tiqiq promo code, but I think I got a pretty good deal (similar tickets were going for upwards of $200).
Good luck with your search! Hopefully someone will start a "fun things to do in Minneapolis" thread as the game approaches, as my friends and I have never been there.
BTW, I'm also a Rob F.

Thanks! I was gonna use Tiqiq with th mgoradio 10% off special, but will definitely take a look on vivid seats before I make my purchase.

That's what I was thinking. I'm sure I can find a way to be ok with that type of first world problem!

I couldn't help but read that as "wanna ban." Yes, I'd say you're approaching ban territory.
