I'd guess Rutgers is one.
I'll go out on a limb and guess Temple.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Congrats||
I also have a daughter (now 4). Speaking as a fan/dad, I've learned that it is fine to not watch games live, as I'd rather spend time with my daughter than watch the game (although I watch every second on replay). That said, I now love night games because I can watch games live.
My daughter shuns M gear because, in her opinion, anything with words/logos on it is for "boys". She was singing The Victors at an early age. Let me tell you, having your kid sing the Victors is AWESOME.
Anyhow, as for advice - don't worry too much. After the first week or so, you'll get the hang of it.

If the athletic dept. had included the Chicago ticket as a charge in the season ticket package, I would see it as a much, MUCH bigger problem. I do sympathize with folks who were banking on seeing 2 home games at Yost against the Spartans. Sucks.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||Confused - honest question||
Is the game in Chicago part of the season ticket package?

No need to excuse/apologize for OT TDF coverage. It is shaping up for a slow few weeks for UM sports and I, for one, welcome discussion here . . . .
|24 weeks 6 days ago||A couple of ideas||
If you are heading up I-75, maybe Bronner's near Frankenmuth - It is a gigantic xmas store open 365 days. Very kitchy.
Tony's is a truck stop restaurant/diner outside of Birch Run that serves gigantic portions of food. It is pretty much just diner food, but ik kitchy is what you are after, and you are driving up I-75, I'd say stop in.

|30 weeks 3 days ago||Conference Room Name (Let's not "Dave Brandon" this!)||
I would suggest something classic/vanilla, like "Wolverine Conference Room". Not flashy, but, IMHO, conference room naming at a charitable organization should not be flashy.
BTW - congrats to all of the money cannoneers!

But I'm just going to go ahead and assume that the article references Sartre.

Bells now distributed in NY for the first time ever. Found it in my grocery on LI and just had a few pints of Kzoo Stout in Manhattan. Hail, Hail. Finally.

|44 weeks 6 days ago||Big J-Dilla Fan||
There's a Dilla event out here in NYC (Brooklyn), too. I'm glad that the Dilla Day thing is gaining some traction. He was a musical genius.
Favorite tracks/beats: Players [do yourself a favor and google/youtube how he changed "Calire" into "Players"]; Nothing Like This; F__ the Police; Let's Take It Back ; Da Rawkus (Sir Bang Version); Fantastic; The Look of Love; Climax; Fall In Love

LeBatard didn't sell his vote - he volunteered to vote as directed by Deadspin.
But to answer your question, I think that it was an interesting form of protest. I was all for it.

|1 year 5 weeks ago||I once made the mistake||
of reading the comments on a Detroit News article years ago. Someone wrote "every buddy knows" to (presumably) mean "everybody knows". I was horrified.

|1 year 6 weeks ago||Hockey wierdness||
Anyone recall the fan(parent?) of an opponent who showed up on the second night of a series at Yost with a carrot on a stick? That was wierd and we made that known. (BTW - This was probably the 98-99 season).
|1 year 7 weeks ago||I had the same thought . . .||
That this was in reference to a Mgobaby. (This coming from someone who had no idea of "What to Expect When You're Expecting" was until I and Mrs. medals were, indeed, expecting . . . .)

I demand to know who is paying for this one: "they have written their name in blood and glory across the night sky . . ."

Green olives on pizza? Gross.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||Brandon email||
I fired off an email and Brandon responded (twice). It was not a form response, because he quoted back to me some of the language I used in my email. (/Tin foil hat medals: Maybe we have some really smart email bots at Michigan. Hmmmm.)
Anyhow, allegedly less than $5K spent on 50 sky messages to be spread across the state of Michigan. E.L. was allegedly not directed to be a target. I'm personally no longer bothered about the amount spent (i.e., $100 on the E.L. "GO BLUE"), but remain a bit bothered about the class aspect. Assuming that they were spread across Michigan, I'll bet that it was cool to see something like this in Muskegon, Jasckson, Flint, Battle Creek, etc. Would have been much cooler to see this in NYC/CT this weekend.

scaring a man with a heart problem is probably not a good idea.

Shouldn't be touristy. Had a great, long, boozy lunch there a couple of years ago.
