|25 weeks 3 days ago||More than a win||
You gotta love this team fighting till the end. Spent the final two minutes (or was that an entire lifetime) on the phone with the son... It's good to be a Michigan Wolverine!

Who owned that Lear. I've seen it parked in Austin, anyone know if that is where Rogel lives?

Per the spousal unit and daughter who ran into Geroge Cambell the other day, he suggested he would make The Game. Did I miss his inclusion?

There is nothing wrong with attending a HS football game regardless of any previous affiliation. It's a football game fer godsakes.

Stayed at the Regents for the NE game in 2011. Not a bad place but they did have the two night min.

Didn't see this link anywhere and even if already posted it's worth a repeat or ten.

Majority, not all. Can't find where anyone suggested otherwise. Plenty of morons to be found every where.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||Ouch||
If that is the impression or experience you've had here in Florida please know that the vast majority of us are horrified to hear of this.
Give Tampa another chance and I'll make sure you and your wife get the best steak dinner you've ever had. And no, it won't be at Charleys.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||Scalping||
Scalping tickets for the bowl games is an art not science. I've done this many times in the past including the Capital One Bowl vs FL a few years back.
I set up my cooler and chairs with my son and walked around asking fellow tailgaters if they had extras. No luck. Scalpers were selling tickets at 2x face value so plan B was to hit a local bar for the game. About a half hour before kickoff, some Gator fans we had been BSing with for an hour or two produced two extra tickets at face. Told us they wanted to make sure we were 'good guys' before they sold them to MI fans. Guess we fooled them.
Best bet is to work the crowd for tickets or just hang around one of the guys with a 'need tickets' sign. If someone stops, offer more than the scalper is willing to pay. Just keep in mind that you are spending all of your pregame time looking for tickets instead of having fun. This year I decided my time was the more valuable commodity. Not to mention I had 14 people to seat...

There ia a youtube video with an alternate method for getting at the fuel pump. Might be worth a try?

1989, flew Bo and his wife to Atlanta and the first round of the NCAA MBB tournament. The AD was kind enough to give the co-pilot and I tickets, behind the wives while the men took seats on the floor. That was a good day...
One more while I'm here, ran into Lou Pinella outside airpot baggage claim. Seems his wife got lost and he was stuck waiting for a ride. Nice guy but given the disparity in income, perhaps he should have given me a smoke rather than bumming one from me.

Try spirit out of Dallas. They don't show up on some of the travel sites. I don't care for them but if you need cheap...

"Put in bay" and stripper in the same paragraph? Am I that old? Have any of you been there?
|2 years 13 weeks ago||just missed it||
My flight left IAD at 9 am... Glad so many got to enjoy the fly by.
|2 years 28 weeks ago||Wow.||
How did I never hear this before? I know he doesn't like the press but am a bit suprised this story didn't get out sooner... Just another reason to be damn proud that man is a Wolverine.

the polls... At least that's what I heard desmond talk about on ESPN.
|2 years 48 weeks ago||Stubhub or craigslist||
Stubhub and pay a fee or craigslist and deal in CASH. Either way, check the market and take what you can get. You either end up with extra or paying extra for the game you want. The board spread sheet might give the chance of a trade but that is doubtful given your desire to get ND seats. They will not be cheap.
Take the little bit of cash you can with stubhub and be grateful for the discount on your ND tickets. They are truly a once in a lifetime Michigan opportunity. Would that I could be there...
|2 years 51 weeks ago||uh,||
Shouldn't you watch BTN on your TV and other games on your phone?

I'll be happy to take them off your hands...
|3 years 2 weeks ago||Prelim||
Is just that, preliminary. As stated by Two Hearted, the report relates the AWOS at two different times but does not state when they shot the approach. There is a significant difference between the two reports and while I don't know the mins for the approach in question we can't assume it was below that required.
Remember, there is nothing to prevent a pilot operating under part 91 from shooting the approach even if the weather is reported below mins when he starts the procedure. He would also have been legal to land had he found actual conditions to be safe for continuation. The point is, none of us know what he saw and why he decided to circle. Perhaps he was low on fuel (yes, I know) or perhaps he was concerned with the engine. Or three hundred and fifty two possible other concerns that made that airport and that circle to land seem like the right thing to do at the time.
99% of all aircraft 'witnesses' report seeing an explosion. Even when it's found the aircraft went down due to lack of fuel (no fuel sorta makes an explosion somewhat unlikely). Eyewitness reports just don't carry much weight with accident investigators.
And my biggest concern, while I appreciate the curiosity and would probably continue the discussion if it were taking place in private, is for the poor kid that has now lost both parents. He does not need to hear anyone suggest that the tragedy was avoidable. He does not need to hear anyone suggest his father was to blame.
Dads are supposed to be revered. I see nothing to suggest that this young mans father was anything but a hero to his son just as I hope I am to my children. Even if only for a few short years. As far as I am concerned, his father did nothing wrong and more probably did a whole lot right. It was an accident.
I've never met the kid but if by chance he were to one day ask me what happend I'd probably tell him that a whole lot of really bad things happened all in one kids short life time.
