My wife and I live overseas and we had the chance to watch (on Slingbox) or listen over MGoBlue.com. I opted for the latter, while the MGoBride watched ABC in the other room. I tried watching, but knowing this was Frank's last game in Michigan Stadium was just too much to pass up. As has always been the case, his play-by-play made it like being there.
Thank you, Frank. You have been done an exemplary job over all of these years, and I will miss hearing you.
|1 week 5 days ago||Amen||
Fight. Beat ohio
|1 week 6 days ago||Because||
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Thanks||
Thanks for the info. MGoBride and I will check out the Great Canadian Bar for the game.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Yes||
But never enough time to see everything

From Zurich to Paris for the weekend. Will visit the Louvre tomorrow with the MGoWife, then head to a bar with wifi to settle in with a nice Bordeaux and the Slingbox iPad client.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Hooray||
I'll definitely go
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Same here||
Guess they've shut off all the radio feeds in favor of Mgoblue
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Ore = pre||
|9 weeks 2 days ago||A Few||
I compiled a few from a year or so ago, so I can no longer vouch for the reliability. .
However this year they all seem to have turned off the stream for international (I live in Switzerland) so mgoblue is now my only audio option.
I have a Slingbox so I only use audio when I have to but being in Dubai tonight I may be back to Frank and Jim for the play-by-play.

When I applied to grad school at Purdue I said attending there would be a good opportunity to root against ND one extra time per year. They appreciated the comment, and I got in and did well.
I should pull for ND in this game because it would help Michigan, which is and will always be my only college football rooting interest. But I can't root against Purdue in this game, and certainly can't root for ND.

Game time is 2am here, so I did the only thing a man in my situation could do: got on a train to Colmar France for a distracting day of culture and beers. Well, beers, mostly.
Really envy all of you back in Ann Arbor. Go Blue!

Married to an awesome Mgowife. 2 kids, incl one who is applying to Michigan this year. Live in Switzerland. While in Europe have watched games in Italy, Germany and (of course) at the Zurich Hooters--that last place more than once. Taught my dog to pee when he hears the word "Buckeye.". Have convinced hundreds of Europeans that Ohio is the place where we incarcerate our worst offenders, so they shouldn't go there. Plan to move back to Boulder soon. Left handed, and totally left brained.

Here in Zürich, I'm having the only decent beer that is reasonably available: Paulaner, from Munich. The Swiss beer mostly sucks.
Hard sell to make to my Euro friends, but you are brewing the best beer in the world now in the States. Sure would love a cold Dale's Pale Ale right now.
|24 weeks 2 days ago||Yes, Slingbox||
ESPN America is always a bit of a crapshoot. Best option: Find someone in the US with a Slingbox and use the Slingbox app on iPad or watch via browser. 2nd best: Frank Beckmann.
I live in Europe and even though I have a Slingbox I often resort to the radio feed because I travel so much. Frank and Jim are always reliable and never disappoint.

BBQ for 15 tomorrow on Lake Zurich: German beers, Spanish wine, and baby backs smoked over good old American hickory that I brought over myself.
Happy Fri night everyone--weekend is already one Jameson-old over here

Both quality institutions that compare very favorably against ND academically, and they bring an extra dimension in that they already loathe each other. I think it would be great to have a home-and-away series where we play one of the two each year.
|28 weeks 6 days ago||So much...||
That I taught my dog to relieve himself when he hears the word "Buckeye."
|42 weeks 2 days ago||Paulaner...||
from Munich. But my time zone is +6 from you all so I've started all over again. Circle of life.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Beat ohio||
I expect between now and game time there'll be a bunch of these "where to see the game in New York/Chicago/Keego Harbor" kinds of requests, but I've got to get mine out there: Zurich (Switzerland). Anyone remotely near here who's organizing a "beat ohio" gathering?
For ideas, in Zurich, there's Paddy O'Reilly's, the Lion and--of course--Hooters!
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Switzerland||
I live in Zurich but believe it or not they have three locations!
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Score||
Me = 0
Hooters = $75
(I live overseas and this'll be the only place with the game on)

I'm in a hotel on the W coast of Scotland with marginal wifi and am thinking maybe Frank Beckmann is my best bet. I've been blocked in the past from radio in the States--anyone know of a foolproof Michigan Football Network feed? I know Mgoblue.com says they'll carry the game live but I want to have plans B and C just in case.

From Munich. One of just a handful of decent beers here in Switzerland. Would love a Sierra Nevada or Dale's.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||Buy It||
That photo is part of the lore that makes Michigan football so special and I would hang it on my wall in a second. I'm proud that we have enough mgosportsmanship to appreciate that not only has intense competition has made us better, it has made us the storied program that we are.
That said, this is coming from a guy who taught his dog to relieve himself on the command "Buckeye." In fact, we can't even safely use that word in the house (not that we would ever want to). While no doubt Woody would disapprove, I'm certain that I know what Bo would think. Or thinks.
I've since moved to Switzerland, and I'm quite sure there are hundreds of Swiss who--after seeing it in action--now think that word is American slang for "take a leak." So my dog and I both get satisfaction out of it.

Took a long weekend in Italy to get away from the horrible Swiss winter and am wearing the colors here. Walking across St Mark's (San Marco) Sq an hour ago and got a loud "Go Blue!" from an enthusiastic young woman.
It's great to be an expat Wolverine!
