|4 weeks 6 days 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.

|5 weeks 2 days 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).
|6 weeks 1 day 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 . . . .)
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Wow experience tour||
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.
|12 weeks 5 hours 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.
|20 weeks 2 days ago||Lunch spot||
Shouldn't be touristy. Had a great, long, boozy lunch there a couple of years ago.

Ashamed to say that I flinched at 1:09 mark.

|23 weeks 6 days ago||Le Tour de France||
Big fan of the Tour. I'm not a cylcist, but I spent a few years studying/working in France.
Will be pulling for Tejay!
|27 weeks 3 days ago||Spectacular.||
Wish you could get more than +5 for this one.

to Ernie Harwell. I had no idea how lucky I was as a metro-Detroit kid listening to Harwell call Tiger games.
For me, Mike Emrick (hockey) is approaching the same level of quality play-by-play + personal charm/wit.
I think that too many analysts try too hard . . . and it shows. (I mute when C. Berman is on the T.V. )
KJ was pretty darn awesome, and like the other 30- 40-somethings on this board, was a central figure in my formative sports years.

|1 year 1 day ago||Three and Out||
I think that Bacon's book talked about sketchy autograph hounds. I think that if you are sincere, you can differentiate yourself from a sketchy 40-something hanging out in the Schembechler Hall parking lot.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Are they||
still giving away FREEEEE PIZZAAAAA at Crisler? Or did that get killed with fire?
|1 year 3 weeks ago||Joking about "floodwater"||
The floodwater comment is in poor taste.

|1 year 5 weeks ago||You are quite welcome.||
Thank YOU for giving back to the community and for making us alums/fans so proud.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||NICE Minny Guy||
Looking like a young Judge Reinhold.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||LIers||
Long Islanders are very accustomed to taking mass transit to see sporting events. A change at Jamaica to Atlantic Avenue is, honestly, probably preferred to a drive to the old (crappy) rink.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||Yep.||
Here's a link to an article about they guy getting sentenced. (He was an EMU student and was on a $10K bet).
|1 year 7 weeks ago||Field rushing||
A few rushed in '97 after beating OSU. The police pepper sprayed some of the students that year (including my roommate at the time). I think that the administration was absolutely terrified of fans/students rushing the field after the Wisconsin fan crushing incident that happened in Madison in 1993 after UW beat MIchigan. . ..

And as Brian noted yesterday, we can apparently afford expensive "timepieces."

Looks like Vincent Van Gogh painted those helmets.

|1 year 8 weeks ago||Jake F. Ryan is a Barbarian.||
And I mean that in the most positive way possible.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||That hit||
and subsequent (long) slumber was freaking scary. The staff should have taken away his helmet and told him to grab pine for the rest of the game. Maybe Dantonio "didn't know" he was knocked out, but it is his job to know things like that and to draw hard lines for the health of his players.
As a fan and alum, I'd be pissed if Michigan did not do this for one of its players on a similar hit/loss of consciousness, regardless of the player or game.
