I'm coming at this from the other side of the equation. I grew up in Oregon and went to college (in the early 1980s) near Chicago. My only real connection to M was that my high school fight song was Hail to The Victors (with lyrics slightly adjusted to fit the school). Throughout my adulthood, though, I kept meeting Michigan fans who were intelligent, eloquent, funny, and engaging. I kind of liked the school on their behalf.
Then I met KansasBlue, who is one of my closest friends to this day. He sent me a few links to mgoblog articles, and I was completely hooked. Oh, and how can I not love Jim Harbaugh? After all, he's the most interesting man in the universe. :-)
Thanks, mgoblog, for taking me in. Go blue!

Yeah, these all sound good, but what I'm waiting to hear is "HTTV is ready to ship".

I'm born and raised in northeast Portland. Left in 1981 for college and never moved back, but I visit every chance I get, and I will love it until I die.

Rock Chalk Jayhawks. And then Go Blue!

B1G tournament champs!!

I live in Big 12 country, and I'm pretty sure Oklahoma State is pissed about this slot. Beat the Cowboys!
|6 weeks 6 days ago||It's the most wonderful time of the year!||
Basketball all the time, and a nice bang to start my Friday. Beat Purdue, boys!
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Muppet congratulations!||
I hope you get some sleep sometime in the next 18 years, and I hope you keep having these hallucinations.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Missed you, KansasBlue||
You've been AWOL for a while. Good to see you back here!
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Oh my gosh, I am completely||
Oh my gosh, I am completely impaired, but I really think we just beat Purdue. BANG ME!
|9 weeks 2 days ago||"So that's where we are in 2016 with hockey"||
Eh, maybe it'll get better in 2017? One can hope. ;-)

This is a good time in the season for everything to start coming together.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Well, I am a mom....||
Well, I am a mom....

I, for one, am happy to be female. This thread is apparently not directed at me, as he begins "Gents..." I've enjoyed reading all the banter, though, and I'm appreciative of those of you who have defended both the concept of marriage and the value of women in general.
My husband (not a doctor) and I are celebrating 30 years of marriage this year. Not perfect, but a much better life for both of us than we would have had separately.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Ah, the pleasure of a||
Ah, the pleasure of a mid-week bang! Hit me, baby! The game thread on Only Colors was delightful.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Can one of the moms say||
Can one of the moms say please stick to sports?
|11 weeks 5 days ago||I love socks. The Joy of||
I love socks. The Joy of Socks. All the socks, all the time. Socks appeal. Do ya think I'm socksy? Oh, wait, did I read that wrong?
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Love this! Congratulations||
Love this! Congratulations to the Harbaugh family!
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Every expenditure could be||
Every expenditure could be nitpicked to death. There are flowers in the quad! What a waste! The chairs in the lobby over there were probably too expensive -- why do we need the chairs with armrests? That money could have gone to pay some needy student's scholarship!
Relax, Max. The school has the money (and more). It's great PR, a great experience, and probably even educational. All hail Harbaugh.
If you are panicked about saving a few dollars, go through your own budget and cut a few more corners.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||And just like that....||
I get a "site is off-line" message, and my comment double-posts. Dang it, world. You can't stay right for 90 seconds?
|15 weeks 4 days ago||And just like that....||
...all is right with the world. Thanks, EGJ!
|15 weeks 4 days ago||I'm sitting here waiting for||
I'm sitting here waiting for East German Judge. Doesn't seem possible that this thread can exist without the obligatory "BTW, FUCK PSU and their delusional JoePa loving fans" -- although I'm not sure I've got it quite right.
On the other hand, MSU lost to Ped State. Hahahahahahaha!
|17 weeks 2 days ago||Blue raspberry and lemon||
Blue raspberry and lemon jello shots. There will probably be food, too, but I don't think I'll care.
|18 weeks 6 days ago||It's Friday, and the||
It's Friday, and the schadenfreude last night was some of the best I've had in weeks. Here for a celebratory bang. Don't let me down.
|21 weeks 4 days ago||I think the point is||
I think the point is that being "the better team" should be enough. Losing a game in which you were the better team shouldn't require you to say, well, we should have been the better team by a bigger margin. Even if the worse team gets lucky on a couple of picks, if they are the worse team, they shouldn't win.
|21 weeks 6 days ago||I'm not drunk||
I'm not drunk, but I love this thread! Can't wait until Saturday.
|22 weeks 4 days ago||Wow, that's a heartbreaker.||
Wow, that's a heartbreaker. Score is right but after the deadline. Still, way to go.
|22 weeks 5 days ago||The moms are cool with it.||
The moms are cool with it. Look elsewhere for your negativism.
|22 weeks 5 days ago||42-9 Michigan. I won't win||
42-9 Michigan. I won't win the tie breaker, so I have to hope my score is right. :)
|22 weeks 6 days ago||Happy birthday||
and a celebratory bang to you!
