|1 week 12 hours ago||Coffee||
Until I head over to a buddy's in Boulder to watch. Cracking open the first one will be a few hours away here in the Mountain Time Zone.
Had grilled buffalo ribeyes last night for dinner (a favorite of the MGo Former Fiancee and me; if you like buffalo, they're worth it) and am having buffalo kabobs on the grill this afternoon. There might be some Buffalo Gold to wash the kabobs down with.

Well done Arizona. Think this is a great gesture.
|1 week 1 day ago||Done!||
Best of luck.
|1 week 3 days ago||Thank you Vintage||
You win the thread with that image. It would be awesome.
|1 week 4 days ago||He and I passed each other||
On the State Street sidewalk last Sunday.
Wasn't sure who the other guy who he was with was, think he was a teammate. But here's no mistaking Rashan Gary. "Staying low" will be a bit of a challenge for him.
|1 week 5 days ago||I will always be a Wolverine||
And I intend to live a long time yet. Easy decision.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Yes, Thank you||
|2 weeks 3 days ago||You can imagine where it goes from here.||
he fixes the cable?
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Helmet stckers||
I know are controversial around here. But IMO they're the modern equivalent of enemy kills represented on the nose of a P-51 or a P-38. I was glad to see them return and am really happy to see a defensive player out front right now. More kills meant more progress toward victory; more stickers = more progress toward "winning the whole thing".
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Nice!||
Great job by Texas
|2 weeks 6 days ago||And our D||
Might've been as much fun to watch against them as the O. Haven't thought that way about the D since 97.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Nope||
Work schedule just too crazy so I flew commercial. Looking forward to getting KARB in my logbook at least once during this FB season though. Also have the game in Iowa City penciled in if work allows.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Nope||
Went commercial this time. : (
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Near A2. Having a beer||
(Of course) with my nephew at his basement bar, have met up with the MGoBride and MGoDaughter, have lunch tomorrow with the son who is applying to Ross and who has a damn good chance to get in.
Then go get beers with all before the game on Saturday; meet up with old friends. Watch what I really hope will be a true beat down.
Who has it better?
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Jeez||
Hatter. I mean, really.

Galloway is the worst kind of homer.
|4 weeks 22 hours ago||Sydney||
spectators are getting a good show. Not much defense, but for an intro game like this, maybe that works best.
|4 weeks 22 hours ago||Get out of bed||
And start drinking!
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Totally worth it||
MGoBride and I went in 2012 and had a blast. I agree on buying the lederhosen. Get good ones though, not the crappy ones they sell only to tourists.
I may go again this year (have reservations but the business trip I'm piggybacking on might be cancelled) and will remember the comment about the place near the Hauptbahnhof.
When we lived in Zurich I once got the Hooters there to turn on the M v OSU basketball game despite that the entire bar was already engrossed with some soccer game. I didn't really want all the TVs changed over (just the one over the bar) but the manager was another American and for whatever reason switched all the TVs over and made the whole place watch college basketball. The patrons accepted it and watched the Michigan game.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Kickoffs||
Work well for synchronizing. Pause the DVR at the point of the kickoff and when you hear the crowd noise rise to when the ball is kicked, hit the play button.
I've found that the two do get out of synch so you'll have to resynch from time to time.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Ribs||
I've got ribs going on the smoker as well. 3 racks of babybacks served with a smoked onion bourbon sauce that'll cook down all afternoon.
I envy you being able to do a brisket today. I usually do mine overnight, starting at about 10 or 11 and finishing in time for kickoff for 1:30 games where we are in Mountain Time.
I view this weekend as a warm up for the season, when I'll have finished my home bar project and the 1946 Philco fridge/kegerator will be functional.

|5 weeks 5 hours ago||I think Rudy||
Deserved to be in jail, but according to his Wikipedia page he avoided it in a nearly $400k fine to the SEC for a pump and dump scheme.
|5 weeks 5 hours ago||I run into them||
I work in Boulder and there are a few around. i think their recent success has emboldened them to come out of the woodwork. Once the natural order of things reasserts itself, they'll go back into hiding.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Beyond the Union Game...||
An MGoBlog ALS/Matzka fundraiser would be awesome.
A tent/tailgate at a football game or two would be a great opportunity to bring a lot of good people together for a great cause. I'd be willing to put a lot of work into it if Brian and/or the mods would support.

But anyone know where I can catch the Hawaii game in Chicago?
|6 weeks 4 days ago||They're all the same||
I was riding to the grocery in the town we lived in in Switzerland, wearing my helmet with the winged cover on it, and someone drove by and yelled "oh no, not here too!"
Yes "here too," Buckeyes. We're everywhere.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||I got a winged helmet cover||
For a bike trip the MGoBride and I took in 2012. It stretches over the helmet and looks great. Only downside is it covers the vents on the top of the helmet, so it's a little warm.
Edit: This looks comparable. http://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/michigan-wolverines-bike-helmet-co...
|6 weeks 4 days ago||One weird trick||
Bring the fury of the entire fan base down on you using this one weird trick
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Tie for first||
1. calling my 69-year old dad and telling him that there's a new guy in the world with his name. (My mother had just died and it was a pretty emotional time)
1. My daughter being born. Despite a whole bunch of lupus complications that we hadn't expected due to our vast experience with item #1. All births are miracles. Hers was even more so.
2. Marrying the MGoBride. I know some people might call me an asshole (this is MGoBlog!) for subordinating this, but until you've seen someone entirely dependent upon you look into your eyes--who has your DNA in theirs, and they call you daddy--it won't make sense. Anyway, were that not the case, this would be #1.
BTW I think the MGoBride would probably say the same about her #1 and #2. We have the same values, and she has been a rock.
3. Going to Michigan. I had an awful childhood. I've never gone into it here, but it was pretty shitty. My life changed so much for the better in Ann Arbor--to the point where I refer to it as my hometown. I would not be anywhere close to where I'm at in life were it not for UM.
4. Moving to Colorado. Great place to raise points #1 and um, #1.
