with oldest son on a father-son weekend which starts in T-minus 1 hour. right by the exit/entrance, so come visit!
|1 day 14 hours ago||Split, Pro-set I, 690 X-ray||
king stem. on two.
|1 day 14 hours ago||I'll Take Pounce And Give the Points||
the boxing gloves will turn the tide in the second half. willie's empty hands eventually are a liability. plus the chaps get in the way when they go to the ground.
|1 day 14 hours ago||Meets Or Exceeds Minimum Standards||
and with the right attitude, is a dime all day long.
|1 day 18 hours ago||I Like The White Ones||
just fine. the other two are dog meat.
back in the day (1980-84), we only had two jerseys to wear at michigan, and none of this new-fangled fad-chasing nonsense.
and yes, please get off my lawn...
|2 days 2 hours ago||Would Not Take 1 Yr Old||
to game, especially if you actually wanted to see the game. if you don't mind missing most of it and just getting junior's feet wet at the big house, you'll be fine. the suggestions on this thread are excellent re: your time in the stadium with junior. i am blessed with well-behaved children (and more than the average number, as my name implies), but i would hold off for a few years. we have a tradition that when it's time to leave, we run back to the truck which is about 1 1/2 miles away. if they can make the run, then they are good-to-go to the game.
|2 days 7 hours ago||On The TV||
not being a smart-aleck, but today i will call the satellite company and have our TV activated for the next 3 months of college football season as we have for years. on actual game days we always have some of our sons playing football and i coach, so we miss some michigan games. we will watch as a family if/as time allows. if the game is not good, we just go on to the many other activities that fill the day and will check the score here and there.
for lloyd's last game against florida i went out back and bow hunted during the second half. i knew i wouldn't enjoy the game since it was a nail-biter with hart fumbling for the first time in his career. when i got out of the tree stand i got the great news of the win. go blue.

as they sat upon the lillipads?
'time's fun when you're havin flies'
|3 days 5 hours ago||So Let's Have Another Verse Thats||
worse than the other verse,
and waltz me around by my willie!
there once was a man named makeever (makeever!)
who once made love to a beaver! (a beaver!)
that result of that muck
was a canvas back duck,
two canoes and a golden retriever!
oh, aye, aye, ya, ya,
your mother swims after troop ships,
so lets have another verse.....
|3 days 7 hours ago||How 'Bout This One:||
(said in an austrian accent)
what is good in life?!
to crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women!
|3 days 14 hours ago||Did You Hear About the Seamstress||
who couldn't mend straight?
(say it fast, you'll get it....)
|3 days 22 hours ago||Father/Son With Oldest||
before he and next oldest son start to have their own games until november. see you all there.
|3 days 23 hours ago||Dude, You Scalp Your Girlfriend||
and you can get in big, big trouble.
don't say we didn't warn you....
|4 days 7 hours ago||Who Is Going To The App St. Game?||
time for football.
|4 days 14 hours ago||Favorite Hockey + Football||
places i got to play - yost #1 (of course), the old olympia, both of NMU's ice rinks, lake view and the new olympic sheet they put in, and lastly munn, which had great ice.
for football, my favorite place was qualcomm, giants stadium which had the nicest piece of artificial turf i ever played on, followed by the LA coliseum which itself was in a gangster infested crud hole for which i was with my armed body guard/investigators who had my back, but the stadium itself is pretty cool.
|4 days 14 hours ago||The Old Windsor Arena||
was the darkest place i ever remember playing hockey. the spitfire fans were no joy either. go (jr.) wings. we got in lots of fights there too, but with the players, not the fans.
|4 days 14 hours ago||Roger That||
was there in '89, worst ever.
|4 days 14 hours ago||I Loved Playing at Qualcomm||
perhaps my only disagreement with mgobrewmom ever. the actual grass field was decent, the locker rooms were fine, and i was always fond of the area around the stadium as opposed to most places where you find large stadiums.
|4 days 14 hours ago||Correct re: Yooper Dome||
when we lived there we would go see the wildcats play there. kind of cool, all things considered. i always thought northern should have a solid football team given it's resources and how nice marquette is, but alas, not usually the case.
willy the wildcat walks around the stadium. he creeped oldest child out (she was quite young at the time). they host the homebuilders show there too in february, and that was very good for business in the middle of winter.
|4 days 14 hours ago||Thanks TIMMMAY||
and to bluereign and goblue, but when you say, 'google chrome + ghostery', i only have the vaguest clue about you're talking about and i have no clue about how to implement it. i know, my bad, but there you have it. i will show this to some of my children though, and they may be able to make it work.
|4 days 15 hours ago||I Never Get Past the Pop-ups||
on firstrow, but it doesn't help that i'm fred flintstone as it relates to computers.
|4 days 16 hours ago||Besides That, The Band Goes To||
the stadium, heading south off of hoover goes to the west side and right under the Section 1 entrance. as they go, they play and chant. this was something totally foreign to me as a student, but i have come to enjoy it tremendously with the kids. calling bando c., and other band types on this thread, they will certainly have more insight.
as for meals, one that might fill you up until monday, to quote LSA2000, is to go to pizza bob's and get a sister ann (a folded over pizza, but it's way more than that), and a chocolate chip/coffee milk shake. your heart surgeon can thank me later....
good for you on your weekend gig with your buddy. that should be a blowout. and very, very wise to have GF as a DD. i echo others who say that a detailed interview is in order, then a pledge to marry!
|6 days 5 hours ago||Farm Charm Today = Shoveling Scat||
and unloading feed, but thank you for the nod. i am actually looking at our bull over the top of this screen, and wondering when i'm going to 'harvest' him. it will occur sometime during football season....please, none of you let him know what i have planned for him, it's a secret.
|6 days 5 hours ago||If It Is, He is On His Meds||
now. good for him.
|6 days 5 hours ago||Hat Tip To You MGoBrewMom||
thanks and you would be on the list, no doubt. and my other favs are similar to yours (and a # of others), include LSA2000, s.coyote, and magnus b/c he shares a lot of info that is both interesting, and was painstakingly gathered in most instances. fav mod would be justin, who apparently took the summer off but with football on our doorstep has reacquainted himself with his computer. i know i'm forgetting more than one though, and i'll remember in the next week or two and say, 'oh yeah, that dude/dudette' and wish i could tack them on and give them a prop.
incidentally, with all this cyber-community kum-by-ya going on, can someone tell me why there isn't something like an annual (or even every home game) mgotailgate gig or bbq scheduled. anyone who would show up would have to have a pic of their avatar stuck to their forehead and all, but putting actual real faces to names would be a kick.
have a great weekend you all and go blue. T-minus 7 days and counting!
|6 days 22 hours ago||Get Sent To Bolivia!||
they won't enforce the support order. or send them your avatar and the bit about being a 'street walking cheetah with a heart full of napalm' . i bet you get an apology and a big check...
|6 days 22 hours ago||Tight End||
for all but one year (linebacker) right after high school. i was blessed in that i got to play for some very forward thinking OC's, and i got the ball alot. we even ran a tight end trap on occasion. i moved to H-back in some sets too.
|1 week 1 hour ago||Late Again, But Happy Friday||
to you all.
football and out-of-town family this weekend. what about you guys?
|1 week 7 hours ago||There Is So Much Truth||
to that statement. all the heebie-jeebies and worries of the day go right out of you with a good full pads clash, even in a practice.
|1 week 7 hours ago||No Thimbleberries||
and no bog, but the back 40 has an area that gets pretty mucky/swampy when we have signif rain, and that is where my favorite tree stand is for bow hunting. for those who bow hunt, we are down to.....39 days until the opener. almost as good as college football season and if successful, you can eat your 'victory'!
below is a pic of blackberries, the kind you can eat, not the computer kind...
