|2 years 46 weeks ago||I am ashamed to admit this||
but as a life long Michigan fan who lives less than an hour away from the Stadium, I finally made my first game this past Saturday. A season ticket holder had extra tickets at $70, one of which I purchased. He ended up giving me the ticket for the seat next to me at no charge. I was more than happy to pay $70 for two tickets to see Michigan play. I did notice though when we were first walking into the stadium that there were plenty of people trying to sell tickets, one here, two there etc. They were asking a lot less than the $70 I paid. I have to imagine this happens all of the time. Someone with a ticket can't go so they try and sell the ticket before the game and will take whatever they can get out of it.
That's how I've been going to NASCAR races at MIS the last 15 years. Never buy a ticket from the box office, just wait until race day and find someone who is willing to get something, anything for an extra ticket rather than eat the entire cost.
I think this is how I will approach my next Michigan game, just show up on game day and find someone who needs to sell a ticket.

If i've missed some of your other post, but your post says you were in the 1986 team picture. I'm assuming as a player? Either way, that's awesome - glad you're here.

concerning the coaching change and or coaching search. I personally don't care who we get to coach the team as long as he stands up on that podium and promises us he is going to beat MSU and OSU every time we play them as long as he is our coach!

|3 years 32 weeks ago||My only protection||
from not getting fired for visiting Mgoblog a million times a day while at work is - the IT guy who monitors are internet usage is actually the guy who told me about this site 3 years ago.
However, our City Administrator is a State fan - so my salvation could be short lived. Especially since I rubbed it in that my team only lost their bowl game by 38 while his lost by 42

When Two Girls One Cup gets thrown into a coaching discussion. +50 to you
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Okay - stupid question time||
and I'm sure these answers can be found with some search effort, but I'll just ask here.
1) Are 'official' visits paid for by the school?
2) Is there a limit on the number of 'official' visits a school can have, or is the limit only on the recruit (seems like I remember reading on here that a recruit can only take so many official visits)
3) The answer to either of the above questions will probably help answer this one, but if the player is already committed (such as the three you mention in the post) what is the purpose of an 'official' visit. I would assume they've already visited campus (maybe an unofficial visit) thus the reason for their committment.
Thanks in advance

One of the several things I like about your writing style is that your 'mood' and 'feelings' come through in your writings. This was a classic example. Reading it almost felt like I was sitting there next to you feeling the exam same thing, but not in a gay kind of way, not that there is anything wrong with that.

|3 years 45 weeks ago||Personally||
the only excuse for me would be a funeral of an immediate family member. Last little league season I missed several of my son's games to watch Wings playoff games. Like Boujie said above, he'll have hundreds more that are far more important. When that happens, my son will come first.
I'm fortunate enough to have a very understanding wife. Our last two anniversaries were spent away at Bed & Breakfast places, but both times we took time out of our getaway to watch Michigan football games. And when we were married 10 years ago, our wedding was intentionally scheduled on the bye week.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||Oh bouje||
you're just being a douchebag for thinking that.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||Last year||
for MSU - Michigan week I hijacked the city hall intercom and played Hail to the Victors for all to enjoy (I work with mostly MSU fans).
Thought I would try something different this year so I got here early this morning and took down the city seal flag and replaced it with a Michigan flag.
It's still there, 40 feet in the air, blowing in the wind, right next to Old Glory. Hopefully it makes it through the weekend, but it's hard to miss.
Hopefully this thread doesn't get deleted, but this really wasn't worthy of its own thread and I didn't want to hijack another thread, but with a hundred or so MSU fans working here, I thought it was worthy of at least sharing.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||I signed up||
for the Air Force when I was 16 because that's all I had ever wanted to do and I hated, HATED school and at the time vowed I would never open up another school book or take another test. But I had lived in Michigan all of my life. Can't remember how I became a fan, but have been watching Michigan games as far back as I can remember.
I served in the military during the first Gulf War and I think I have told this story before, but the Fab 5 were playing the infamous timeout game. I was stationed in Saudi and had talked our base General into getting us a satelite dish and TV so I would be able to watch that game.
They hooked it up in the mess hall. So there I was, by myself at 3 in the morning Saudi time watching that game.
I ended up going to College using my GI Bill when I got out, but I would never have gotten into U of M even if I had tried.
Still - Go Blue!!!!!
|3 years 45 weeks ago||yeah||
but at least I didn't start a thread about my dream. Ha

gets 3 interceptions, one we return for a pick 6. Michigan ultimately wins with special teams play
|3 years 45 weeks ago||I agree with this.||
It happens all the time during the NHL playoffs. I'm not a troll, but I do like to go to whoever the Wings are playing and read what the other side has to say, but the past few years, a couple of those messages boards require you to be a registered user to even read forum topics, and during the playoffs they will put a hold on any new registrations.
Maybe overkill - but it is effective.

move this to the Hall of Fame right now?
I'll grab a bag of popcorn and enjoy the show.
|3 years 46 weeks ago||I will probably never reach||
a 1000 points because I mostly just read the threads, with a comment here or there sporadically. I think I've only ever started two threads - Chili recipes and Stuff Not Important Enough to get it's own thread. So I'm okay with whatever the threshold gets raised too if it helps clean things up.
If I need to find out what Michigan theme to name my dog, I'll just post that in the Dee Hart thread.
|3 years 46 weeks ago||The problem with that is||
the responses are so quick, by time you go through all of that to see if your pick has already been taken, by time you get to posting it, there could have been another 50 posts, and one could have taken your pick

Denard Robinson killed tacopants. That's awesome!
|3 years 47 weeks ago||How awesome is it||
to read that we assume Michigans offense will be in the top 20. I'm sure this is a concensus, but I love watching this offense. I've almost gotten to the point where I expect a touchdown on every drive.
|3 years 48 weeks ago||Is this possible?||
Brian's blog is his main source of revenue and I think I had read that the t-shirt sales were a big part of that. Having said that, he has a lot to lose if he were to get sued for any compliance issues.
So the question is, would it be possible for an individual, like me for example, to have the t-shirts made and sold? This way it has nothing to do with Mgoblog. We would have to set up a way though so Brian still receives the same compensation he was before.
And I'm not volunteering to do this, I don't have the time, but just curious if that would be a way to circumvent the compliance issues and keeping Brian and his blog out of it

but this is the only thread I'm able to even see. Any other thread I try to open up gives me a big ole blank white page
|3 years 50 weeks ago||I've been watching||
Michigan football for as long as I can remember. However, back in the day I could tell you the QB's name, the running back, a wide reciever or two and maybe a defensive guy or three - but it wasn't since I started reading this blog that I really became addicted to everything Michigan Football. It's so great to look at these reviews and be familar with every name on there now because of things I've read and learned on here.
So thanks Brian and all of the other great posters who provide the endless information - I can't get enough
