It's one of the reasons I hate the "you suck" chant that too many in the stadium yell after Temptation. Totally low class. Not funny, not clever.

Harbaugh to Kolesar. Best shitt ever.

I envy your green egg rig; I've been thinking of pulling the trigger on a large GE for a while now. Have been holding out thinking the little lady might surprise me for a b-day or some such, no luck as yet. May just have to bite the bullet and drop the G-note to get the kit.
Anyway, back to the naming...
Since I'm a bit old school and look back fondly on my days in A2, I'll suggest:
Elliott & Morris (as in Jumbo & Jamie)

Ann Arbor, or any college town has undeniable benefits from the universities within.
The ramshakle turn of the last century homes on streets surrounding the campus and beyond would be worth mere thousands if in located any other city, not the several hundreds of thousands they command due only to the never ending stream of students. Im sure A2 more than cleans up on the property taxes alone based on the abnormally high property values. Ann Arbor would be Dexter w/o the U. (w/ all due respect to Dexter)
|15 weeks 2 days ago||Exactly.||

Tells me that Fosters is a shit beer down under and no one drinks it but bums. And Americans.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||They play too much of that damn Journey song||
at the stadium...and now too many of you are believin'.
This is not going to happen. I'll eat a lemon if it does.
Just stop the nonsense. The boys just need to stay healthy, keep winning, and we'll get to a nice bowl game.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||I concur with Gibby||
Gibby was the man. Loved him as a Tiger, and as the WS winning fist-pumping Dodger.
Least favorite Sparty: Tony Mandarich.

Last week I was watching one of the B1G network programs, Revsine had a segment where local beat reporters would be connnected by phone for some Q&A;, I think Marcus Ray was the A2 connection. Through the entire segment, they were playing this stupid-ass background music, mis-mixed to the point where you could barely make out what the phoneline correspondent was saying. So freaking annoying I lost interest and changed the channel.
Stop with all the background noise!

Could it be Thujone Von Thujone was acutally behind this?

Need to be modified from that gott-awful red & gray/white to blue & amber/maize.
Here's the CL link: https://detroit.craigslist.org/okl/cto/5189144227.html Interior is a little Spartan, needs further customization but could be a kick-ass tailgating mobile.

MadCap third coast beans purchased on my last visit to GR, pulled luongo in Saeco Intellia automatic. I'll usually froth up a little milk to mix in for a velvety delicious morning.

You're gonna wear flips to the practice field? No open toes.
Way to class it up.

Can FS1 just put her in a Picture in Picture frame throughout the game....or at least during play stoppages?
Rupert knows how to pic 'em.
How about her and Holly Sonders calling the game?
|26 weeks 2 days ago||No, in my book cocktail||
Unless its the molotov variety.
|26 weeks 3 days ago||I have to laugh...||
When I read appendix, my first thought was the appendix for his multi-volume UM history binders.
Best wishes to the kid on a speedy recovery.
|26 weeks 4 days ago||That segment needs||
MUCH more Molly Gerim and much less SAS and Bayless. Don't care she said 'Big Blue'...frankly, I'd like her to whisper that in my ear all night.
Actually, re: the UM wagering; my lady was just out in Vegas last weekend for a girlfriend's B-day weekend. I had her place 20 bills on the lads, so consider me one of the offenders driving the betting hype.

Was a thing of beauty. Damn.

With a winning record at the Lions in the last five decades.
EDIT: OK, I fact checked myself, not including Jim Caldwell, who is on the plus side...and techically, its four decades.

I like how the on-screen banner for the sparty says "Sparty Fan".

If those are your only choices for a sports bar, I feel for you man. Bdubs is servicable, but Old Chicago, one of the worst places I've ever been.
|29 weeks 2 days ago||Of the era||
80's checking in, TP was more of a late 70's early 80's thing. Marshmallows didn't happen until after I graduated.
I think people threw the TP because it looked cool, like a bunch of party streamers. Pretty harmless if you ask me, although did make a bit of pulpy paper mess.
|29 weeks 4 days ago||Nice tip||
|29 weeks 4 days ago||I second this ^^^||
Galena is a nice historic town about 15 miles east of Dubuque, think main street Mackinac Island with cars, historic brick buildings, etc. The drive in there from Chicago is nice, will be real cool in a rag-top, nice rolling hills, winding roadways, etc. The town has lots of B&B's, some really good restaurants & bars (second part may not be so important with the 6yo in tow), shops, galleries, etc. Fun fact: it was at one time a bigger town than Chicago during its mining heyday.
The little lady & I used to make it our midway hook-up spot when I was living in Chicago and she in Cedar Rapids.
My only bad memory of the the place was in the fall of 2007, we were driving up on a Saturday for a quick rendevous. It was the opening UM game of the year against a nobody team. I obviously couldn't get the game on the radio (pre-XMSirius days) and I don't recall the game being televised anywhere in Illinois, so decided to skip the game, as a win was sure to be a lock. Imagine the shock at learning of The Horror once I arrived in Galena and was able to plop down in front of Gameday. Ruined my entire weekend. Today however, I think I'm better off for not having any of that game burned into my memory.
Other than that, to your original question, I have no idea what to do in Dubuque.
|30 weeks 1 day ago||Completely disagree||
What about Harbaugh makes you believe that he doesn't preach good sportsmanship? His mantra of turning these players into good men would require that. Just because you're a warrior on the field doesn't mean you're a jackass. It is just a game after all.
