It would drive me crazy when guys would say to me and my friends "There are no good looking women here". I would be like, "We're right here, dumb ass!" I think because we choose to not dress in a trashy fashion, it is hard to see the prettiness that really is there (for real, not just on the inside, on the outside, too). It was kind of rough on the self esteem for a while, then you realize those guys are losers.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Thanks for saying that.||
I really wanted to say something but didnt' want to come off as a harpy. I went to U of M for grad school and an engineering school for undergrad. Men at both places were always ripping on us for not being pretty enough. It drove me crazy! I'm not into make up or fashion, but I like football and Star Trek and I can kick your ass in math! I will also add that some very hot men are also total mimbos and it would drive me crazy trying to talk to them about "GTL".
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Awesome!||
I have cut my hair and lightened it a bit, but overall, the avatar captures it.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I counted||
I did the count every play. They had 11 every time. It felt ridiculous that I had to do that to make myself feel better.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||For me,||
For me, it's an issue of bedtimes for my kids. When it is a night game, my young kids can not stay up until the end of the game without being extremely grumpy, which means that none of us have a good time. So, I have to get a sitter that doesn't mind missing the game. For 3:30 games, we can get errands done, soccer games done, kids can come to the game and enjoy it and we all get home before we turn into exhausted monsters. Now in a few years, when they are older, we won't mind, but it will be an issue for other families. For A2, though, I think it is great for business. I was downtown yesterday for some kids stuff and it was packed with people wearing game gear. Blimpy Burger had a huge line and stores were crowded, so I would think the town would support it. Maybe not the direct neighbors of the stadium.

You wouldn't want to put the cart before the horse and close the barn door after the horse got out, especially if you close that door on the cat with nine lives (who got out of the bag) and you certainly can't let that fox into that henhouse, even if you are stuck between it and a rock. Now, let me tell you how I have to walk uphill both ways to from that barn to the henhouse and how there's 3 feet of snow, because, back when I was your age, that's what I had to do. Both ways! Up hill!

|4 weeks 5 days ago||Wow!||
Dodged a bullet there! It's true when your mother says "You'll put your eye out". Always wear protective eye wear. Your PSA for today.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Thanks||
for bringing some seriousness to my light hearted attempt at humor. We also spent time talking about the middle east, the beheading in OK and the state of healthcare in America today. However, it's much funnier to laugh about drowning our sorrows in year old Halloween candy. #firstworldproblems

Michigan wins a squeaker.

We should have "Stuck in a Moment" because they do get stuck in a moment....

"Is Anybody Out There?"
|8 weeks 2 hours ago||I just bought this last weekend!||
I was so happy about beating App State, I had to "go crazy" and get it. Surprisingly, my boys wanted the yellow jello first rather than the blue. We made it on Monday and it turned out really good - I was surprised that they didn't fall apart when we de-molded them.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||I was so glad||
that they didn't do Sweet Caroline or that Journey song. I commented about how much I dislike it in the post season ticket holder survey, so clearly I am influential within the AD.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||I don't mind||
the crowd shots. I think it's fun when we are in time out to see who's there. Yesterday I even saw someone that I know. I think it's funny when people aren't paying any attention and don't know they are on the jumbotrons.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Ha!||
I'm not even sure what I'm getting at!

His kinky pre game ritual.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||it felt great to win!||
We were commenting after the game that it has been a long time since we have won that handily. At no point did I feel like our lead would totally disappear. Only 1 int and 1 sack, not bad. I feel like we really upgraded on O. DG looked more confident.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||We have taken our kids||
since about age 2. We talked to someone on Hoover, right behind the stadium and reserved a spot for the whole season. We would arrive about 15 min before kick off and make it to our seats just in time. We buy them lots of food to keep them happy. We walk and run around a lot. One child even sat on my lap and slept through 1/2 of a game (it was naptime). We generally missed a lot of the action and would leave sometime in the 3rd quarter. Now that they are older, we can come a little earlier and leave at the end of the game. We still need to pump them full of food and drink, but now they enjoy the game! I also second the call for ear protection.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||I'm surprised||
That they gave you such a late delivery date. When some of my tickets sell, I get an email telling me that if I don't type the bar codes in within 24 hours of the sale, I will forfeit the sale. Hmmm...
|9 weeks 3 days ago||This comes down||
To how the seller chooses to list the tickets. Sometimes when I am posting my tickets for sale, I don't feel like sitting down right then and typing in all the bar codes. When they sell, I get an email and type in bar codes then. I often list multiple games at a time and I'm too lazy to type in 10-20 bar codes at once.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||It's possible||
My family buys all of our tickets together and we have 8 together. I usually sell them in pairs or 4s, but I have sold all 8 together before. I wish I could help you, but we're actually all going together this weekend! Try StubHub, I think waiting until game day is too dicey for that many people. Also, you could try Craigslist.
|10 weeks 16 hours ago||Well...||
They would have to sell brownies and Cheetos, then, too. Can you just see "Michigan Marching Band Halftime Show brought to you by Cheetos"?
|10 weeks 16 hours ago||Minnesota and Purdue||
sell beer at games, so it can't be determined by the B1G. I thought in Michigan, it was a state law about alcohol on campus/in the stadium. The state legislature had to pass legislation to allow alcohol for hockey and soccer.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||At Women's Football Academy||
Nussmeier talked a lot about tempo. He doesn't believe that up tempo (like Indiana) is necessarily the key to success. He pointed out that if you look at the fastest teams in the country, sure there are some top teams on that list, but there are also some bottom teams as well. That being said, it did sound like he wanted to go faster than last year and definitely avoid delay of game issues as well as other offensive penalties.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Yea!||
I'm glad that there's more than just me and my husband on WP8! I'm sure they'll make an app just for the 3 of us.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Lillyhammer||
It's on Netflix. It stars Steven Van Zandt as a mobster who is relocated to Lillehammer, Norway. Turn on the subtitles and enjoy!
|10 weeks 3 days ago||What about||
a Windows Phone app?
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Kayaks||
We're looking at buying some kayaks: Ocean Kayak brand Banzi for the kids and Ocean Kayak brand Duo Tandem. Opinions?
Lillyhammer is a good Netflix series. Steven Van Zandt plays a mobster relocated to Lillehammer, Norway under witness protection. Very funny. Remember to turn on the subtitles, it's half in Norwegian.
I like Zombie novels. I'm reading "The Girl with all the Gifts" right now and it's pretty good.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||I thought Norfleet's comment was telling||
"nobody's going out there not knowing what they're doing, and if they don't they have people to tell them if they go wrong. That's a big difference."
I think that's a pretty big statement about the past.... I don't know how to block quote, sorry.
