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.

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.

The floodwater comment is in poor taste.

Thank YOU for giving back to the community and for making us alums/fans so proud.

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.

Here's a link to an article about they guy getting sentenced. (He was an EMU student and was on a $10K bet).
|30 weeks 4 days 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."

|33 weeks 3 days 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.

Do you listen online? If so, what feed?

Only three games on BTN? Seems very low for what I would imagine would be a decent ratings for the network.

I listened to the game on the radio and Beckman and Brandy were going nuts on this play. I later watched on replay (not knowing/recalling what play this was) and it jumped out at me. Terrible.
The defensive holding calls on BWC were also laughable.

"Miami of Ohio (which is a school of giant d-bags) "
Mr. Schembechler would like to have a word with you . . . .
Also, and SIAP, but this was in the NYT Magazine last weekend (forgive me if formatting doesn't work . . .):

So refreshing to watch a team with a tough defense. We may not win them all, but should keep them all close.

I'd say depends on whether you want or need the sound up on the TV. If you locate a few finalists for places, call ahead and see if they are planning to put the sound up on any games. I know, for example, Professor Thom's does for UM games.
In Manhattan I've always liked Blondie's (on UWS) as a general sport's bar.
I'm also very partial to Brooklyn bars. Cody's on Court Street in Brooklyn is a chill, off the beaten path spot.
