So it's strange to wear a jersey of a 18-22 year old, but it's not strange to stalk out 15-17 year olds on Twitter, Facebook, Vine, or whatever other social media there is out there? You signed up on this site to talking about everything Michigan football. That's, not weird, but wearing a jersey is? Hanging onto a 16-17 year old's words like it's life or death if they commit to Michigan or not isn't weird, but wearing a jersey is? Looking at progress pictures of 19 year old kids from freshman to sophomore year with their shirts off isn't weird, but wearing a jersey is?
Jesus Christ, some people need to get in touch with reality and quit with the 'holier than thou' attitude.
I wear a Reggie Bush jersey to every Lions game. I'm 30, he's 29. I guess that makes me some weird creeper pedophile that wants to be his girlfriend. I thought it was me showing my love and support for my favorite player and team, but apparently I'm just a giant weirdo.
Fuck people, you know what's fucking weird? If you're a guy worrying about what other guys wardrobes consists of. That's fucking weird.

Just my two cents:
I don't think he was talking about this specifically, but generally speaking with everything that's going on. As soon as someone in the public spotlight makes any kind of non P.C. statement, the media is all over it. Thus, in turn, makes everyone commenting on it look like a huge hypocrite. Regardless if he's disabled or not, everyone has made fun of someone in their lifetime. Unless you were a nun out of the womb, everyone has done this. So making fun of someone not disabled is ok, but making fun of somone that is disabled is not ok? Do you see where this doesn't make any sense at all?
The thing is, it was an honest mistake. They thought it was a joke. When they found out it wasn't, they owned up to their mistake like real men do. That should be the end of the story right there. The whole Donald Sterling thing, I don't think anything less would've happened if he would've made a public apology, but he's been quiet ever since the story broke. Bad move on his part. Do you really believe all these NBA players lauding him, or threatening to boycott have never used a racial slur behind closed doors? Let's be honest... This is what I have a problem with.
|45 weeks 6 days ago||"Detroit logic." Trashing||
Trashing Detroit teams on a MICHIGAN blog. I guess I fail to see any logic in that. People from other states go to/root for the University of Michigan, I get it. The majority of people that go to/root for the University of Michigan are from Michigan. The majority of those Michigan fans also root for Detroit teams. Tread lightly my friend.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Yeah, I just gave up all||
Yeah, I just gave up all Michigan sports teams too! I'm now the proud fan of Alabama Football. Miami Heat, Chicago Blackhawks, Boston Red Sox, Louisville Cardinal Basketball, and whoever wins this years Super Bowl!!
Seriously, this is ridiculous. Stop rooting for a team not only to bandwagon a division rival, but also a team that you have no affiliation with whatsoever? Serious question: how long before you start rooting for Ohio State?

Where about in Fenton? I'm also in Fenton without power. Second time in two months without power. First time was the wind storm a few weeks ago a tree fell on our power lines. I'm doing crazy good with luck this year.

This coming from someone that said "haha youre mad."
|1 year 32 weeks ago||I am an avid reader of the||
I am an avid reader of the comics. I too was confused at how the whole Governer situation was handled, but Kirkman has said many times that the show and comics are two seperate entities. The show borrows from the source material, but that's about it.
With that sad, I think the term "jumped the shark" is thrown around way too loosely. The first part of last season was amazing. The second part lost soom steam. The last episode was pretty disappointing to those of us that read the comic, but, I fail to see how this show jumped the shark. Honestly, you think Walking Dead has hit complete rock bottom that it will never be able to recover? Come on now... That would be like me saying Game of Thrones jumped the shark after the Red Wedding episode.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||Ugh. I hated this pick.||
Ugh. I hated this pick. Loved the player, but to pick him that high was ridiculous. The concussion he had at Cal was brutal. Of course it wouldn't scare off the Lions though.
Best of luck to him. If he wasn't cleared by now, he needs to retire. It's not worth it.

I don't know what's more embarassing... Sucker punching someone, or being 6'2 235 and barely making the kid wobble with a sucker punch.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Leino didn't have a good 1st||
Leino didn't have a good 1st year (55 games, 11 pts) but he had an incredible 2nd year (81 games, 53 pts.) The point being, and I've said this before, Holland doesn't want to give up prospects for players like Ryan or Nash but he wants to sign or re-sign these old vets (Alfredsson 40, Cleary 35) and keep pushing these prospects back in the minors. To me, it doesn't make any sense to say to no to trading for a big name player only to bring back guys like Cleary and push guys like Nyquist and Andersson back to the AHL.
It also bugs me when Jim Nill leaves Detroit and shows he isn't afraid to make major moves in Dallas. That's just me though. I'm obviously no NHL GM.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||I wonder if Brunner is going||
I wonder if Brunner is going to turn into another Leino situation. Play somewhere else, have a fluke of a season, Wings fans get mad at Holland and say he's stupid, signs a large deal then disappears.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Because nothing with Dwight||
Because nothing with Dwight Howard has ever been weird?
Dude is a headcase, I wouldn't want him anywhere near my team. LeBron got a lot of heat for "The Decision" but Dwight has now done this with two different teams. His mind doesn't change every day, now it changes every hour. I used to like Dwight, I can't stand the guy now.

|1 year 34 weeks ago||Then the Sens trade for Bobby||
Then the Sens trade for Bobby Ryan... Ugh... It seems like the Wings don't want to give up prospects in deals (like Nash last year) but are willing to sign 40 year olds and bury those prospects in the AHL. They're going to have to trade a forward or two now anyway. Tootoo, Bertuzzi, Samuelsson, and Eaves. Tatar is out of options. Nyquist and Andersson should be on the team next year.
I'm not quite ready to bang on Holland's door like some people but some of these deals, or lack there of, have made me scratch my head over the past few years.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Sigh... Remember a few years||
Sigh... Remember a few years ago when Boston offered Rondo and the Pistons rejected?
Allen and Rondo for Rip, Tayshaun, and Stuckey. I would have took the trade then. I've never been a fan of Stuckey.
Now I'm reading that the Celtics would want Monroe in return. I'd deal Monroe but only if they pick up Josh Smith which isn't looking likely.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||You're talking about||
You're talking about Tournament teams. There are upsets every year, but Butler was the exception. Stevens was 166-49 in 6 seasons at Butler and he made the Tournament 5 times. They went to the Championship game two years in a row. For a Mid-Major, that's pretty incredible. I wouldn't quite say there are teams like Butler every year but there are some Mid-Majors that do buck the trend every once in awhile.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||Then get rid of Bertuzzi and||
Then get rid of Bertuzzi and Samuelsson. I can't believe they actually thought bringing back Samuelsson was a good idea and at $3 mil/year to boot. Nyquist can easily fill what Samuelsson was (or wasn't) doing every night.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||The UFA's this year are||
The UFA's this year are horrible. Lecavalier, Horton, and Bickell are about the only ones I'd want the Wings to go after. CBS has Filppula as the #4 overall UFA. 4th overall?! Yeah, that's bad. Brunner is 11. Soon to be 36 year old Iginla is #2. Sorry, but this free agent pool is horrible.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||Yep, I was just going to say||
Yep, I was just going to say this. They can trade his rights to another team, however that usually results in nothing more than a late round pick. Definitely not a top 10 pick even with Quincey because if he's dealt to a team, there's no guarantee he'll sign with that team.
Rumors are the Wings are talking about trading for Bobby Ryan. I'd love to see that more than Vinny. They need a winger much more than they need a center. If they still want a center, they should go after Weiss.

|1 year 47 weeks ago||This is why I never complain||
This is why I never complain about officials. Sometimes you lose some, sometimes you win some. This was our night. I think we got some crucial calls going our way, however, I think Cuse got away with a couple walks. So it's all good.
I don't even care right now really. I've kept pinching myself since Trey's 3 against Kansas. Go Blue!!!
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Yeah, I'm a big fan of the||
Yeah, I'm a big fan of the comics, and I don't really like what happened tonight either.
Kirkman said that the comics and the show are two completely different entities. I kind of figured Andrea was going to die because she was pretty well hated. I just think that the whole last episode was kind of rushed. I think that they could have cut out a previous episode and expanded the whole prison attack.
I'm also pretty disappointed that Lilly wasn't even present.
I'll have to watch this episode over again but I feel like the parts that shouldn't have been drawn out (Milton/Andrea) were, and the parts that should have been drawn out (The Governer/The Prison) weren't.
The only redeeming quality was Carl, surprisingly.

|1 year 52 weeks ago||Personally, I like them.||
Personally, I like them. Also, this isn't Nike's doing, it's obviously a rebranding attempt by OSU. It's not like Nike said "we're going to completely rebrand Oregon State and there's nothing they can do about it!"
As much as people want to bitch and moan about uniforms, it seems like this trend is here to stay regardless of the brand. I personally think Nike products in general are better than Adidas products, but to each their own. Not everyone has to agree with me. I will say that as much crap as the "bleed out" jersey's got, they were the first Adidas product that I actually liked. Plus look at the MSU game. The student section was game for the Maize out for once, and it looked pretty bad ass with the bleed out jerseys.
|2 years 4 weeks ago||I take it you don't watch||
I take it you don't watch boxing... They jump weights every single fight. Honestly, if a fighter wants to move up, or down, why shouldn't they be allowed? If they can make weight and make better fights, then why not? And as far as I know, GSP has never jumped weight. He's always been a Welterweight.
The explanation on why Silva fought Griffin is right in your sentence. Griffin was a former Light Heavyweight Champion, and Silva wants to fight the best. I don't think anyone thought that Silva would beat Griffin that easy.
Bisping has only had 3 #1 contender fights in 17 UFC fights since '06, and not counting the TUF finale. He lost them all.
I do think that they do make moves for money purposes, but isn't that exactly what they're trying to do? Make money? I don't think anyone owns a business not to make money.
I do agree with you on one thing though, they have way too many cards. I can't keep up with the UFC anymore, which is probably why I stopped watching it so much. 4-5 years ago I watched every card. I'm lucky to remember if there is a PPV on now. As I've said before though, I can't really fault them if they're making money off all the cards they're putting out there.
