Was a thing of beauty. Damn.
|1 week 2 hours ago||Moeller: He's the only coach||
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.
|1 week 5 hours ago||Sparty Fan||
I like how the on-screen banner for the sparty says "Sparty Fan".

|1 week 1 day ago||Ugh||
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.
|1 week 6 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.

|2 weeks 1 day 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.
|2 weeks 5 days 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.

In New Buffalo. Oh so good.

I don't talk about AD's no longer with the Univ of Mich. I care about guys still on the team.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Ehhh,||
That forbids any future fireworks shows...
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Overlap with Auto Show?||
Since the CFB NCG is played in the first two weeks of January, and the NA Int'l Auto Show is typically right around that time, seems to me that it might be a shit show for football fans trying to get last minute hotel rooms during that period. I believe most of the 'quality' hotel rooms in the downtown are sold out, especially for the first few days of the NAIAS and during press week.
Would the NA Int'l Auto show consider pushing their event back a week to not suck up all the downtown hotels? Should Detroit win this bid, that would have to be coordinated, or else each would have a major impact the other.

Blake was one of my favorite guys over the last few years, despite having some difficult recent games...was hoping for big things for him as part and with the support of our lock-down D this year.
Glad he got his degree, but nevertheless, I haz a sad.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Rationale?||
Discipline or other reason given? Not a member at Rivals so can't see the content.

Hyderabad, to be exact. Here for a week for a wedding (I know, cool story bro).
|18 weeks 1 day ago||Considering I really like the helmet unaltered,||
I propose the new attaboy stickers are football shaped clear plastic (or whatever stickers are made from).
|22 weeks 6 days ago||My parents taught me||
that its not polite to talk about money, religion or sex to people that you don't really know. Its been working for me for 40+ years.
|23 weeks 4 days ago||Is this grassroots and will||
Is this grassroots and will it motivate and unite the entire fan base?
|23 weeks 6 days ago||I thought||
it was the hole that Yost dug?
|25 weeks 7 hours ago||Contract stipulation?||
I don't recall the particulars of Hoke's release, but is there language which indicates he doesn't get the remaining buy-out cash if he takes a job elsewhere? If that's the case, I can't blame him for not taking a position coach hiring (presumably at a significant pay cut) vs holding out for another HC gig.
Besides, could you imagine the good natured Hoke working for that fire breathing Kelly?

|30 weeks 1 day ago||Sharp's question:||
Sharp: "If one of your young, brash & confident players makes a game outcome guarantee, what would you tell him?"
JMFH: "I'd tell him he better be ready to deliver on that guarantee."
Not really a great question, IMO, however I like JH's response in that there is no reprimand to the player, just ensure your actions can back up those checks your mouth just wrote.

mgoblue.com says they're carrying the presser live. They'll also keep it there if you can't watch it live.

With the huge beer market in TX, Bells needs to be here now. Friggen Alabama has Bells for cripes-sake. Need it in lone star country.

I like it a lot.

Any real definitive understanding or explanation of what's up medically with Peppers? ACL? Something else?

Have an extra doughnut with sprinkles today.
|38 weeks 2 days ago||Forgive me,||
but what is the source of the above Sam & Ira "discussion". I'd like to understand the full context.
