John Riccardo (the deceased) was truly an amazing man.
His priorities were extraordinarily clear and straightforward:
That said, he was a HUGE Michigan Man and worked extremely hard to rise to the top of one of the world's largest companies. Think about what that must mean from a capacity standpoint... I am always amazed when I learn about (and even more so, when I interact with) people who are able to produce SO much more than me, across so many facets of life. Not like 20% more, I am talking like 20 times more!

Given the possibility that you may be having a daughter, and you probably wouldn't want her objectified by all your "friends" on the Internet, my advice as a new parent would be to change your avatar.

Regarding the set that StephenR showed above: My wife bought this exact set for my birthday a number of years back. The kids and I get it out each year for a couple of weeks at Christmas. One of my favorite gifts of all time. It's very old timey, but putting the iPhones down and playing with it is a real joy.

...I am sorry that you are stuck in East Lansing. I should have been more clear wrt Rudock. I was thinking specifically of his injury from Saturday's game (I am up to speed on the regression from last year, horrible deep ball injury theory). Specific to the helmut ripping hit, the reporter's question above seemed to indicate that he (we?) had already been told that it was shoulder related, not a concussion, and that's he's expected back as early as next week. When did this news come out? (because I am picking it up here (in the Monday presser) for the first time)
|25 weeks 6 days ago||Where can I find any thing from Harbaugh...||
...or the program in general from post game? Two subjects seem to be understood by others (but not by me) prior to this presser that I have not seen here on the board, on the main page, or anywhere else for that matter, namely: Rudock's is a shoulder problem and Shane being officially behind Wilton on the depth chart.

...what the refs should use to define targeting. Makes me so freaking angry.
Edit: Whoops! NOT this .gif! The Rudock one above.

...for your calming comments. I am now over it.

...what is going on when people confidently and clearly state something that is simply wrong which can very easily be verified as incorrect.
He said, "wouldn't". It is super clear in the video.

I love that we have this guy... I honestly find our punting plays to be some of the most exciting this season. As good as our defense is... when Blake can pin the opponents's deep... it just positions us so well for so many things, e.g. safeties, panicky opposing QBs, opportunities for Peppers to field returnable punts, short fields for our offense, etc.

Was humiliated on that goal... Seriously, he might have stayed out too long partying or something last night... That was PATHETIC.

Both my mom and wife are / were teachers and both have found it to be an extremely rewarding career! Welcome to The D, so many good things are happening here; the region is definitely on the upswing... Great M-loving teachers moving to the area is just another sign of great things to come.
|42 weeks 1 day ago||Saw Brian today...||
... at the AFC Ann Arbor soccer game, and after introducing myself, I honestly had to take a deep breath to collect my composure before thanking him for all the work he's put into the site. I know this sounds super cheesy/insecure... But I spend significant portions of time on here every day, and then there was Brian just chilling with a friend taking in the game. I owe this man so much of my happiness!
PS - I hope my six kids didn't annoy the hell out of you and your buddy!

Great post Ace. Thank you as always for your thorough work. Would you mind giving us an update on your health? My family and I have been remembering you in our prayers for months and it has been a while since I've seen anything. Obviously, I hope, as all MGoUsers do, that you are feeling better and better each day!!! And if there has been some recent update that I've missed, I apologize to Ace and the Board for wasting everyone's time!

|1 year 14 weeks ago||Wait... Is Dakich transferring?||
Somehow I thought I read at some point that Dakich was transferring? I remember being sad about there being no more awesome cheer/dancing after big makes.
|2 years 4 weeks ago||Thank you!||
Those lines are great. I can so vividly picture him saying each one of them. RIP Bo; you are missed!
|2 years 6 weeks ago||My GOODNESS!||
I never post either, but have been LOVING Ace's giff'ing of Dakich these last few weeks... And while I've never heard of the referenced movies, this Dackich - Dance Movie mash-up is one of the highlights of my life. Thank you, OP.

Ryan's tracking Minnesota sweep where he just manhandles the blocker like rag doll and crumples the ball carrier like a middle-schooler is just great... can't wait to have that guy back!
|2 years 35 weeks ago||That is almost...||
...exactly what I was thinking... hilarious. My thought was, "Sweet, now I am going to have to skip out of work early... all because I can no longer use my brain... all because of that AWESOME FREAKING VIDEO!"
