The Romans must have really struggled with algebra.

As usual, that Lions player has no chance of catching Jimmy.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||Is he injured?||
My son played Rockford last night and Nordin never kicked.

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!
|18 weeks 1 day 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.
|19 weeks 23 hours 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.
|24 weeks 16 hours 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.
|38 weeks 2 days 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.
|43 weeks 22 hours 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.
|1 year 6 days ago||Because||
Because each day is proportionally smaller relative to your total experience.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||Really enjoyed the Super Bowl of Rock||
concert in 1977, featuring Bob Seeger and the Silver Bullet Band, Peter Frampton, Rick Derringer, and UFO. It was hot though.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||And getting started||
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".
|1 year 17 weeks ago||It looks like the state of Michigan||
It looks like the state of Michigan has a large tumor right in the middle.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Be there. Taking my son||
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!
|1 year 50 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.
|1 year 51 weeks ago||Went to a DIII game||
Watched Hope destroy Albion to take sole possession of 1st place.
|2 years 18 weeks ago||They all look||
exactly their specified age, too!
|2 years 24 weeks ago||Those who leave...||
will be champions.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||Yep -||
At this moment my 14 yo son is in the middle of his first 2-a-day ever. I believe he is running his ass off in the pouring rain as we speak. Oh, to be young again and not have to live off ibuprofen!
|2 years 25 weeks ago||I thought the same thing||
I thought the same thing after watching those clips. The bright side - they are going to need his ability to create something from nothing more than ever.
|2 years 36 weeks ago||Just finished||
A couple of White Hatters from the tap at New Holland.
|2 years 37 weeks ago||Oh man||
Oh man, was that a great read! Not sure I've ever read such straightforward unfiltered info from a coach. You clearly have established a solid relationship with Borges that will pay off for all of us.

that money had been earmarked for Tebow.
