2 Anchor Steams and 4 Big Daddy IPAs in with a handle of Jameson waiting for me when I get home from work. Tomorrow can't come fast enough.

I don't post a whole lot on here, but I logged on to just say thanks for putting to e-ink everything that I have been feeling for who-knows-how-long.
I raise my glass to you sir....and hope that tomorrow we see true feats of strength without aluminum poles
Here is to a better tomorrow and GO BLUE!!!!!!

careful man, there's a beverage here
|5 years 31 weeks ago||My apologies||
I'm going to have to take some blame on this. I took Big Ben out of my fantasy team and replaced him with Henne.
My roster has been restored so hopefully that will silence Tacopants for the future.
|5 years 33 weeks ago||Winston is supposed to be on probation||
"In addition to the six-month jail sentence, Winston will serve two years of probation and pay $1,768.43 in fines and court costs. Winston also is required to complete an assaultive behavior and substance abuse counseling program and must submit to random drug and alcohol tests."

I have a mac and a pc at work. I do development for the web, so I have lots of different browsers between both operating systems. IE, firefox, safari, chrome; MGoBlog is the most frequented site on all of them.
Even on my iPhone, I saved a shortcut to the site on my homescreen.
It's a good thing that I am stuck at a dead-end job. Without this site, I would go insane.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||if memory serves me correctly||
weren't we the first team to get a rushing td against Penn State's defense?
|5 years 36 weeks ago||it ain't over...||
...until the front-butt sings.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Welcome back...||
As a former engineer for DirecTV and part of the team that developed the current generation of their set-top-box interface, I am glad to hear that moxi was a step back.
|5 years 37 weeks ago||I did catch it on the||
I did catch it on the youtubes (lousy video of it on a person's tv, so not worth linking) after I posted. It didn't look like Fedor was hurt too bad though. Just the cut on the nose and the fact that his nose was most likely broken. That's all in a days work for him.
|5 years 37 weeks ago||Saw Fedor live...||
I saw Fedor live in Vegas a few years ago when Pride tried to break into the US market. He slaughtered Mark Coleman, which was great because Coleman is a buckeye.
I have a major problem with CBS though Despite the west-coast feed being re-broadcast, they didn't get the Fedor fight in the two-hour recording window, so my recording cut off just before the fight.
I guess that's what youtube is for. Viva la interwebs!!!
|5 years 37 weeks ago||It's football season||
I'm already nearly a shut-in. The rain only reinforces it.
I will say that last weekend was very tough for me. Upper 70's and sunny vs. watching the debacle. The weather lost and so did we :(
|5 years 37 weeks ago||Keeping summer alive...||
I cleaned out my local beer depot of their remaining stock of Sam Adams - Cherry Wheat. It's made with Cherries from Michigan. Between that and the Jameson, I might be able to drink right through the game (9am west coast starts are the best).
|5 years 41 weeks ago||Perhaps this will answer some questions||
“We’ll see how he does,” Rodriguez said. “I think (Tuesday) he felt a lot better and I don’t think there’s any issues—or many at all—with his shoulder. With those concussions, no matter how severe it is, you want to be 100 percent sure it’s cleared up.”
|5 years 41 weeks ago||Michigan Stadium||
This will be my first time back in Ann Arbor for a football game in far too many years. I can't wait to see how the changes to the Big House look in person.
Plus, I can't wait to hit The Fleetwood.
As for the actual game, I'd like to see a lot of the second and third teams getting reps in the second half.
|5 years 41 weeks ago||The worst of the season||
ro-tel plus velveeta = queso
Who was the ad wizard that came up with one?

He can carry that with the little brown jug.
I just want to point out that Nick is capable of playing a decent game as evident from the Minn game last year.
He's still a Wolverine and deserves respect for sticking it out through the rough times and doing a great job helping Tate and Denard prepare.
|5 years 43 weeks ago||If you have an issue with the||
If you have an issue with the cost of Sunday Ticket, about midway through the season, DirecTV usually offers a cheaper "buy the rest of the season" package.
I have been a subscriber for a long time and I absolutely love it. They have a lot of added features like a player tracker for fantasy players that pops up a message on your screen when player does something point-worthy. Plus there is the red zone channel and the game mix so you can watch 8 games at once.
|5 years 43 weeks ago||Still at work...||
....but I'm on my 2nd Heineken.
|5 years 43 weeks ago||Kinda OT...||
I've been considering relocating to Seattle. How is the alumni club there in regards to size/activity?
Also, what's the weather like?

When I lived in Vegas, while taking bids on landscaping our backyard, one company advertised that they used the same turf that was used in Michigan Stadium. Naturally (or is it artificially), they won our business.
