|2 days 3 hours ago||We'll be there!||
I'll bring the Maize Boys and maybe a Maize Nephew, too. It's a fun place.
|3 days 1 hour ago||Sounds great!||
Depending on the time, if you choose 12/26, I will bring my kids and maybe my nephew, too. Before noon would be great, if people can be up that early.
|4 days 34 min ago||Only one big problem with IC||
The terrible smell. Trust me, I've lived there, it smells like farm. Otherwise, it's like small, old time A2.
|1 week 5 days ago||Kayaks||
I would like to get kayaks for the family, but hubs isn't sure. We've been looking at kayaks for months, but he doesn't want to pull the trigger.
|1 week 5 days ago||Same boat here||
Drives me crazy! It's not a race! Just take your time and double check it. My son is not a double checker. Ugh...
|1 week 5 days ago||M gear is out of control, too||
I have to do a blue load of M gear twice a week and a load of yellow M gear twice a week. We have certainly brainwashed our kids!
|2 weeks 5 hours ago||Our entire FB season?||
I thought it represented this FB season and part of 2013 as well.
|2 weeks 5 hours ago||My kids||
My kids are figuring out what they are getting for Christmas from the banner ads. I have to start doing some fake online Christmas shopping to throw them off the scent.
|3 weeks 6 hours ago||I don't know||
I don't know Brady Hoke as a person, only as a media figure. Maybe he is the guy that could go in after being fired, say nice things and not be bitter about losing his job. I think any organization would really be hesitant about bringing a recently fired employee back to give speeches about other people - it will be awkward, uncomfortable and you never know who is going to go nuts and say things totally inappropriate. I think even if he isn't fired by then it will be awkward and uncomfortable.
|3 weeks 7 hours ago||Wondering about this||
I have been wondering about this as well. On the one hand, you don't want to let him hand around and get a public forum for an impassioned plea to stay, but on the other hand, don't you want someone who knows the kids and can say something nice about them? It's not like you can fire him and say, "Come to the bust anyway and speak nicely about the kids, but don't say anything about being fired." I imagine that right now, Hackett and Hoke are working out the details of his departure and it will be very much like DB's departure, in that Hackett will say, "Brady and I have talked and he came to the conclusion it's better for the team if he leaves." When this will happen, I don't know.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Craig's List||
You can always go the Craig's List route or, if you know someone who wants to buy, you can do an online ticket transfer. That's what we do when we can't use our tickets. Any cash that gets exchanged behind the scenes is unknown to the AD. The big problem is that during the RR years, the Club Seats could be on Stub Hub and the last few games, the Club was totally overrun by opposing fans. This was not very nice. So it's still possible to sell them, just more difficult.
|4 weeks 5 hours ago||Yes||
Kenny Allen, the back up punter is very good. I think he will do a very good job.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Does it||
All fall in a 24 hour period up there? Hard to plow when it's snowing that hard. Ok, I know, UP, we're tough, blah blah blah...
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Cool||
It will also help fill the stands so we don't dip below 100,000.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Some stuff at Pioneer parking lot?||
Haven't they done some things at the Pioneer parking lot in the past few years? I have been parking on the other side of the stadium, so I haven't been over there in a while.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||I think||
it's really cool that they are letting people on the field. At the 1 mile fun run before the Big House Big Heart 5K, they wouldn't even let the parents of the kids on the field to get their kids. We tried to get on the field to grab them, so they wouldn't be lost at the event and we were told NO ONE can be on the field. So this is a nice change.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Not much snow||
In A2, but really cold! 11 with wind chill -6! I have to break out my polar vortex parka.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Maybe||
They should fire Hoke and make him take the Mega bus home.

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.
|9 weeks 5 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".
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Awesome!||
I have cut my hair and lightened it a bit, but overall, the avatar captures it.
|10 weeks 1 day 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.
|10 weeks 1 day 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!

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.
|12 weeks 22 hours 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
