Peppers at 10, which seems low.

|1 week 5 hours ago||I was hoping||
I was hoping to scout him a bit last year when he played West Ottawa (my son's team), but he never got on the field. Someone later said he was injured but I never hear specifics. Glad it's not a leg-related injury.

Sitting in the sun in Chicago waiting for Steely Dan. $14.50 for an Oberon. Somehow worth it.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Surprised to see other people||
Surprised to see other people watch this. I love this show- but it seems like nobody I talk to has even heard of it. Well worth the time- especially for those of us that grew up during the Cold War.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Does anyone know if, on top||
Does anyone know if, on top of it being a fun experience, they do any substantial coaching? My son started at corner at a large MI school as a junior, and may want to go if he'll actually learn something useful to up his game for senior year. He's not looking to get recruited, not quite at that level.

I had at least 10 catches and 3 touchdowns. Shook off 2 concussions (curb as sideline marker seen in retrospect as unwise). Eventually carted off the field with a broken collar bone, thanks to my big brother.

Aaron is an Ann Arbor guy - would have loved to see him in a winged helmet. He is now the receivers coach for East Kentwood HS.
|23 weeks 22 hours ago||I went to ESPN site to||
I went to ESPN site to complain logged in as a member (yes I'm embarrassed, my son likes the magazine) and they rejected my message because they suspect I'm a bot. Great way to shut down your dwindling customer base.

The Romans must have really struggled with algebra.

As usual, that Lions player has no chance of catching Jimmy.

My son played Rockford last night and Nordin never kicked.
|42 weeks 5 days ago||Just to be clear||
Just to be clear, I am not against advertising, and I don't doubt MGoBlog readers are an ideal target for DK. It's just that when I can't tell until half way through a front page posting whether I am reading content or an ad, I think it changes something big. Go Blue!
|42 weeks 5 days ago||I totally respect||
I totally respect that the blog needs to make money, and have no problem with advertising and having sponsors. However, I think blurring content with advertising like this is a mistake and degrades something that I think is about the best thing in the whole world. It may well be that my humble opinion matters not, but I mean this as sincere input and not a complaint.

My son is finally playing varsity after all these years.
|43 weeks 5 days ago||Would be the second||
Would be the second Wolverine/West Ottawa Panther in a row to win. Coincidence? Seriously, Renes was the guest speaker at the W.O. fall sports kickoff, and he gave a pretty inspirational lecture to the players about academic excellence. It was also fun to watch all of his accolades projected behind him while so many Spartyfan parents frowned.

Des Morgan's alma mater.
|48 weeks 5 days ago||Can't believe I have to DVR||
Can't believe I have to DVR the first game of the Harbaugh era, and stay off the grid. My son will be playing in his first varsity football game ever, and I'm not going to miss that. The hardest part will be making sure no one sitting near me spills the beans and ruins it for me. Gotta remember to turn off all my push notifications too.

There may be a correlation between having short arms and being unflappable.

I recently talked to a local kid who was a recent B1G heavyweight wrestling champ (MSU) who was headed to NASCAR pit crew. He said they hire mostly D1 athletes.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Saw Hibbets play||
Went to the Hudsonville vs Muskegon playoff game since it was local, and to check out Deyonta Davis. Didn't know Hibbits, but noticed him quickly. While Davis is obviously an elite recruit, what a contrast in effort and character. Davis loafed like crazy and just waited for a chance to show his skills. Hibbets hustled his ass off and played really well in all aspects of the game (and led the way to quadruple overtime), while Davis fouled out on a technical (slammed the ball and complained after being called for another foul). I'm not delusional - I know Davis is an All-American, but Hibbits sure looks like the kind of player that could thrive under Beilein and staff.

Was doing paperwork at my office in Holland and thought a tree fell on the other side of the building. First one I've felt since one cracked our toilet in half as a kid in Montana.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Of course the mother's||
Of course the mother's position is absurd, but do we really need to judge her so harshly? Greedy people almost always come form a history of deprivation, of one kind or another.

Because each day is proportionally smaller relative to your total experience.

concert in 1977, featuring Bob Seeger and the Silver Bullet Band, Peter Frampton, Rick Derringer, and UFO. It was hot though.

And getting started on the Anti-Hero.

Checking in at the beautiful Skokie Holiday Inn, ready to start the tailgate early.

I'm fascinated with the concept of "literal visualization".

It looks like the state of Michigan has a large tumor right in the middle.

Be there. Taking my son again. After all the groaning and gnashing of teeth, it's still Michigan football, it's still the Big House, and the sun will be shining!
|2 years 23 weeks ago||Sacred Cow at ABC brewery. Then||
My wife had to yell Go Blue at the large group of Wisconsin fans that walked in. They were super friendly, all asking where the parents section is because one was Gasser's dad. They were great sports and shared their brown ale pitchers. Makes it a little harder to hate Wiscy.

Watched Hope destroy Albion to take sole possession of 1st place.
