But that's not what I said. What i said was "enjoy the moment and dont look for negatives because you never know if you're going to have it this good again." I never said "dont bother trying" rather i wanted him to appreciate just how good he had it at that moment and in that moment....nothing sucked. Because nothing did. And what I wanted him to focus on was the opportunity to travel that he had that I'm sure not many of his 12 year old classmates had.
I think it was very good advice and definitely say it again to him.

In 2004 I took my two boys out to the Rose Bowl. The guy who puts on our tailgate and has Blue Lot parking and nice tickets to Michigan games couldnt go becuase of health issues so I took the seats he was offered - right smack dab on the 50, about halfway up. Perfect seats. Because I used to fly a lot back then I was Platinum on Continental and all three of us got upgraded to first class on the flight out to LA.
So we're sitting there on the plane and I've got a bloody mary in my hand and my then 12 year old son looks at me and says "hey dad...you know what sucks?" and I reply "NOTHING. You are sitting in first class, on your way to a freaking Rose Bowl where you're gonna sit on the 50 yard line and enjoy LA sunshine for three days. NOTHING SUCKS."
I then said to him "you dont know this but this might just be the high point of your travel life and you're only 12. Your'e gonna have to go some to beat this son so enjoy every moment."
I think the recruits understand this too. This might be the high water mark of their fame and fortune for the rest of their lives and they're enjoying it. I understand why they would.

You have definitely become one of the boards best GiFFERs that's for sure. Didnt you used to speak at one point though? I seem to remember you making comments using words back in the day.
Did you take a vow of silence or something? Are you actually a Tibetan Monk?

Same here but in my case it was the Cleveland Cavaliers and one year they used Shaq to make the auto calls. I tried every way I could to get the "HI...THIS IS SHAQ" as my ring tone but couldnt do it. The recording itself was hillarious.

|1 day 2 min ago||I feel for you Mike. My||
I feel for you Mike. My house (Sigma Chi) got put on probation twice and then ultimately booted off campus for quite a while. It's taken us quite a while to get things back to "normal" and even now a lot of alums (like me) dont go by the house anymore or do the pre-game like we used to - simply because we developed other habits and rituals while they were gone.
My house didnt do one awful thing (like this) but rather a string of alchohol-related offenses and general stupid vandalism and other nonsense that just never stopped. And when the idiot started shooting out windows in West Quad with a BB gun that was game, set, match.
Hopefully for your house's sake they quickly dismiss the bad apples, make full restitution and take whatever university/national punishment awaits them. But I have to say based on your President's email at least it sounds more like a Penn State fan defending Saint Joe than somebody who understands the size of the shit sandwhich they just took a big bite of.
|1 day 1 hour ago||"We are embarrassed and||
"We are embarrassed and ashamed of the behavior of a few of our chapter members at Treetops Resort over the weekend of January 17-18."
If only a "few" of the members caused the damage shown then those boys were working round the clock to destroy things from the minute they arrived to the moment they departed.
Seems to me like your President is trying to deflect the incident by calling attention to all the wonderful things they did prior to this unfortunate incident. Reads to me a lot like the Ray Rice defense - "Yeah I knocked her ass out but hey - look at all the sick kids I visited in the hospital!"
|1 day 12 hours ago||This is a fun team to watch||
This is a fun team to watch and MASSIVELY overachieving given their actual slew of injuries (looking at you Izzo) and the amount of talent that's left but let's be real here guys. The losses to LJIT & Eastern are two boat anchors on our RPI and with our remaining schedule it's gonna be almost impossible to overcome them. Had we beaten Villinova & Wisky we'd be ok but we didnt and there's nothing, absolutely nothing, to be ashamed of.
I think we'll finish up either 16-12 or 17-11 pre tournament and then get one win there before bowing out leaving us either 17-13 or 18-12 with a pretty shaky resume. Go to the NIT and win it and get the bodies healthy for next year.

|1 day 19 hours ago||So based on this thread title||
So based on this thread title am I to believe that outside of media day Tom Motherfucking Brady DOESNT WANT MICHIGAN TO BEAT OHIO STATE? That if not for a horde of poorly dressed people hoping beyond hope to find other work before their chosen profession vanishes from the planet like some vagabond gang of locomotive conductors or even yellow page salesmen asking him stupid questions over and over and over again he'd somehow start an O.H......thing? Is that what you want us to believe?
Sorry OP I'm not buying that nonsense. I think Sir Tom wants to beat OSU each and every time they play - media day or not. You go take those nonsenseical notions of yours that our beloved Brady doesnt want to beat OSU unless he's at a media day elsewhere my friend.
That dog won't hunt.

Or go completely on the offensive and say "look - I've seen the kids GPA, class selection and SAT scores. The only way he's coming in here short of an athletic scholly is with a gun and hostages and even then it might not happen."
They'd never see that one coming.

1. Type your thoughts in the box provided either as a unique post or by hitting "reply" to the post above the one you wish to reply to (as I am now with yours).
2. Click ONCE on the "save" button below.
3. Now this next step is the one you struggle with so please pay close attention.....DO FUCKING NOTHING FOR THE NEXT 10-20 SECONDS WHILE YOUR COMPUTER SPOOLS AND/OR MGOBLOG TRAFFIC PREVENTS THE POST FROM APPEARING IMMEDIATELY. HITTING SAVE OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN SIMPLY CREATES MULTIPLE POSTS OF THE SAME FUCKING THING.
4. I repeat (because I've posted this several times in the past to you because you seemingly cannot remember this....DO FUCKING NOTHING FOR THE NEXT 10-20 SECONDS WHILE YOUR COMPUTER SPOOLS AND/OR MGOBLOG TRAFFIC PREVENTS THE POST FROM APPEARING IMMEDIATELY. HITTING SAVE OVER AND OVER AGAIN SIMPLY CREATES MULTIPLE POSTS OF THE SAME FUCKING THING.

Based on Mattison's prior impectable reputation in this area and the fact that dad was one initially offended I"m guessing the father heard something he didnt like (even though it's undoubtably 100% true) and tossed GMat out of the house. The son, because he loves his father is NOT going to say "my dad massively over-reacted here" gives pops cover by saying Mattison called him stupid.
As others have said in the thread. Many parents have an extremely difficult time hearing that their child is not God's gift to the universe and may not, shockingly, be gifted in all areas of life. And they attack anybody viciously anyone who implies otherwise.
I know this because my wife is definitely one of the people. My 10 year old could come home covered in blood holding a severed head in one hand and knife in the other and if he said he didnt do anything she'd believe it. And she'd go after anybody who said otherwise.

Good point. During the night I had a couple of people come up to me and "out" themselves and trust me - I was like "so YOU'RE <insert user name>???" The good news is that they were all people i really liked from the board so maybe he was there but just didnt identify himself cause he knew his reputation was less than stellar.
Come to think of it there was this one dude complaining constantly about the beer not being the right tempature, that the food wasn't prepared to his liking and that Brian, John U, Big Ed & Andy and Seth werent all that interesting.
I think he was there.

So Get Jim Harbaugh is Voltron is Handsome? I was so hoping that dude would show at the n Ohio event a few weeks ago just to see what he was like

That's TWICE today I've screwed something up so now I owe Mallet an apology too for mixing up Ryan Leaf with Ryan Mallet.
Mods - can we create a "I'm sorry" open thread? Put me down for two please.
|2 days 19 hours ago||That picture was taken||
That picture was taken directly in front of me. I had increadibly shitty seats for the game with the exception of that play and and Streets TD catch (although was in the other corner of the end zone) this one play was amazing and changed the entire course of the game.
Lucky for us Mallet didn't know Sir Charles could levitate and thought he could throw over him. Having the ability to defy gravity through the sheer force of his will sure came in handy that time.

This is starting to feel a LOT like the Brionte Dunn recruiting saga. Hope this one turns out differently.

You didn't say anything about having a boat.
Seriously though - After seeing how well received your self-nomination post was I decided it would be better to sit this out.

Then I apologize. I thought the "leave" was directed at Hayes.
Sidenote - Do I have to start a separate thread to make the apology valid or will an inter-thread "mea culpa' suffice?

What is with you guys? He's doing what he thinks is best for him and leaving on the most upbeat and classy way possible and you slam him?

You got me beat Walter.
Horrible sports career. Pudgy teenager (the term back then was "husky") who got cut from everything I tried out for.
Crappy job. Work the window for the night shift at Taco Bell.
Live in a box underneath the overpass connecting 480/77 here in Cleveland. It's a nice box though.
Wife weighs somewhere between 250-300 and has some wierd skin disorder that makes her covered in acne (the avatar's just a goof)
Two of my three son's are in jail. The third is awaiting sentencing.
One close friend. But I'm not sure he's actually real as we've only really spoken over the internet. He might actually be a Spambot (keeps asking me if I want to make $8,000 a week working from home)
The community of people living under the freeway seem to like me OK though. At least when I've got Thunderbird to share.
So I guess I"m out.
