Do you even think that staee fans pick up on the misogynistic connotation of the "little sister" chant? Do the women in the stands chant it, as well? I've never been to the Breslin Center, so the reception of that chant is lost on me.

3 years of my time at Michigan summed up in just 5 highlights.
|4 years 16 weeks ago||I'll be moving there next year...||
Worried about the potential lack of BLUE support around. Good to hear that there are places to actually watch the game! Would love to meet some of ya'll when I get out there.
|5 years 1 week ago||It boggles my mind to some||
It boggles my mind to some extent that prior to today the highest offer (the entire offseason) was 7mil/yr for 2 years from the Yankees, and somehow the Tigers managed to bid against themselves (and the phantom deal from the White Sox) to pay Damon 8 million.
Damon is horrible in the outfield. Has been for years, and it's only going to get worse in a new stadium. Couple that with a decrease in speed, durability, and inflated home run and avg total due to the new Yankee Stadium and you have another overpaid DH on the team.
The positives here are that his offense is consistent and he is a good clubhouse guy.
|5 years 3 weeks ago||for someone who watched every||
for someone who watched every yankee game last year on mlb.tv, yes, damon is in fact that bad in LF. Trust me.

Haha. 200 Million $ is a nice "limit" to have.

IGN usually runs the same review across both platforms but for bayonetta they ran 2, because the ps3 version was noticably worse. apparently, the developers had problems using the ps3 cell processor.
|5 years 6 weeks ago||I heard Bayonetta on the PS3||
I heard Bayonetta on the PS3 is not nearly as good as Bayonetta on the 360. I would stay away from this title on the PS3.
|5 years 6 weeks ago||I'm playing Demon's Souls||
I'm playing Demon's Souls right now... The game is ridiculously deep and time consuming but vastly rewarding.
-Fallout 3 is one of the best games on this generation systems.
-Uncharted 2 is undoubtedly the Game of the Year. The single player was one of the best ever, and the online system is absolutely additive.
-Classic: Metal Gear Solid 4 is in a tie as the best game on the system with Uncharted 2.
If I were you, I would play Uncharted 2, simply cause it's downright AMAZING. Then I would play Fallout 3 if you had an insane amount of time... or Demon's Souls if you have hard core gamer skills and can handle a high level difficulty RPG

Most of the improving won't be at Michigan considering he's leaving after this year... And at this point, it's safe to say some of his decisions have cost us games. But how can I complain? Sometimes those crazy 3's go in... right?

|5 years 6 weeks ago||It actually surprises me that||
It actually surprises me that so many people have a negative outlook on the Cub fanbase. Maybe it's just my personal exposure but Cubs fans have usually displayed a relatively high baseball IQ. When you compound that with the added humility of not having won a championship in 101 years, you get a relatively harmless fanbase.
And I'm doubly surprised that with all the "showing up to drink and have fun" comments about Wrigley, nobody brought up Fenway. The Red Sox fanbase is absolutely dominated by two types of people. The overzealous frat boy and alcohol friendly Irishman. I saw a drunk guy lampoon a five year old kid at a yankees/red sox game for simply wearing a yankees hat. And I've had beer bottles thrown at me just for being in attendance at one of their games.

Like Kiffin will fit right in at USC.
|5 years 6 weeks ago||MOOT Thread||
Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports tweeted that the Tigers have not actually expressed interest in Damon. They are counting on Austin Jackson to mature quickly.
I could go into a whole other thread on my issue with Jackson for next season. His strikeout rate is ridiculously high and has not seen the expected decline of a maturing prospect.
|5 years 6 weeks ago||damon' stolen bases||
went from 29 in 2008 to 12 in 2009. Granted, he was moved from lead-off to the two slot which could explain part of the decrease in that figure. However, that's still a substantial drop. Don't expect more than 20 out of him in 2010.
|5 years 6 weeks ago||If he got a 2 yr/ 9 million offer...||
You should expect the Yankees would match that and simply keep him in Left since they have a spot open there still.
Most baseball execs expect him back in the Bronx anyway. That being said, if the Tigers offered him 9 million for 1 year, he might accept that.
|5 years 6 weeks ago||his arm and range||
are terrible. Take it from me and watching him play everyday. He simply doesn't have it anymore. That being said, a corner outfield spot is doable. He just looks awkward sometimes when he's fielding. His arm is worse than mine.
His numbers are good at Comerica but consider that, at his age, those will see decline as well.
I just can't believe that they would trade granderson away, only to pick up damon.
|5 years 7 weeks ago||the only thing that might seem logical||
is the backloaded nature of Granderson's contract. He would have been earning substantially more in the coming years. Damon would serve as a plug in the outfield (with experience and a bat but no defense) until Austin Jackson is ready for the bigs. Currently though his price tag is probably hovering at 2 years 9 million a year. If it gets any lower, I don't think the Tigers would sign him. Expect the Braves to make a push.
|5 years 7 weeks ago||you can act like you know more||
when the GM's moves are absolutely schizophrenic.
My biggest concern is:
Having a closer on the wrong side of 30 jumping to the AL after spending his entire career in the NL.
And the loss of a draft pick is killer.
|5 years 7 weeks ago||Don't be fooled by the bat power||
His numbers will DIVE at Comerica. That short porch at Yankee Stadium gave him an additional 10 homeruns. Easily.
