|1 day 9 hours 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.
|1 day 9 hours 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.

I'm not even sure what I'm getting at!

His kinky pre game ritual.
|2 days 24 min 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.
|5 days 5 hours 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.

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...
|5 days 20 hours 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.

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.
|1 week 2 days 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"?

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.

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.
|1 week 6 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.
|1 week 6 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!
|1 week 6 days ago||What about||
a Windows Phone app?
|1 week 6 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.
|2 weeks 6 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.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Which game and how are you coming?||
Are you taking 94 or 96? If you are taking 96, you can take 23 to get to A2 and get off at the north side of town (Plymouth or Geddes). You can easily get to 5th and shoot right through town. We like to park at Fingerle - only 1/2 a mile to the stadium, easy out. Easy to get back to Plymouth or Geddes via Division.
What game are you looking for? I have extra tickets to some games. Email me: email@example.com
|5 weeks 4 hours ago||Fingerle||
I find Fingerle to be very convenient and easy access to the east side of town via Division and it avoids a lot of traffic getting in and out.
|5 weeks 4 hours ago||I have tix||
Section 23, row 34 - 4 seats. Good seats. Were very expensive. Email me and we can talk price. firstname.lastname@example.org

in 2013, DG was speaking to the group and he stated what a hard time he had in leading the players off the field. Specifically, he said on game days, when a captain would be pumping up the other guys, DG usually likes to be by himself, listening to music, "getting into the zone". He has had a hard time being the guy who gets out there and pumps up the other guys, it's not his natural "thing".

Not really weird, but you can rent dune buggies and go riding on the dunes. It's awesome! We have taken our kids on this since they were 2 and 4. They just strap a car seat in the buggy. Super fun and super messy (sand everywhere). Also, the Whippy Dip right by Silver Lake Sand Dunes is a great place to catch sunset.

I went and re-read it and you're right. Not too shabby. I wonder what the other new benefits will be (it said new benefits would be rolled out closer to the season).
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Interesting||
We have season tix and my husband filled out the end of season survey and gave hockey a scathing review. Asked if the tickets were worth the money he answered NO, asked if he would recommend tix to friends and he answered NO. He filled in the open comments with his overall disappointment with the quality of hockey and the hockey experience. We do enjoy hockey, we have good seats, but they are really expensive, especially since the seasons have been disappointing. We kept them this year to help our priority points. It will be nice not to pay as much. Too bad the concession discount is only for new season ticket holders.

in 2013 DG said he had a lot of trouble being a leader, especially on game days because he often likes to have some quiet introspection before games. He found he was needing to be more "out there" and verbally supportive of his teammates and he found that difficult. Hopefully last season gave him more experience and he's better at it now.
|11 weeks 6 hours ago||He's very jacked||
Much bigger than you would think. Not as tall as the O line guys, but very wide.

I feel like we never got this level of detailed analysis or amount of enthusiasm out of Borges. I know that may not make a difference in the long run, but I hope that enthusiasm catches on in the locker room. He spent a long time talking about how it is better to hold on to the ball and not get an INT and how it is really hard to impress this on the QBs. Hopefully it is sinking in with DG. I think having an actual QB as the QB coach will really help our QBs because he's "been there".
|11 weeks 6 days ago||I was surprised, too.||
I thought that I would have read something here about an additional official on the field. Interestingly, not every conference will have the 8th official, but Big Ten is one that will. I will be curious to see how if it changes the amount of penalties called.

No mention of the socks.

with mental health and depression. There was an article on mlive (I know, the dreaded mlive) about his struggles with depression and mental illness during his time at Michigan. So I think he helps the current student athletes. He also mentioned that he helps with recruiting.
