- I was in Winston-Salem for work a year or two ago and went to the hotel bar to catch a Michigan-Wisconsin basketball game. I thought I would have to request the game be turned on, but to my surpise there was a fellow U-M fan already in the bar watching the game. He also happened to be an MGoBlogger.

I thought that too, until the latest version of bubble watch came out on ESPN. Before they played Nebraska, they apparently had no chance of a bid, unless it came via autobid. After the loss, they certainly have no chance without a BIG tournament championship.
Their non-conference schedule is rough. The only two ranked teams they played out of conference (UConn and Cuse) they lost to. Prior to the Nebraska, their RPI was in the high 80's I believe.

Good to know. Thanks for the info!

Switching to a keg from bottles was the best brewing decision I've ever made. Bottling wasn't so much the issue as cleaning/sanitizing the bottles was.
Regarding tap handles, I have not seen any Michigan handles, but you may be able to custom order them somewhere.
Where did you buy the duel tap kegerator? I am considering whether to build a duel-tap kegerator from a mini-fridge or buy an existing kegerator and swap out the single-tap for a duel-tap tower.

It's not a spoiler because Jon Snows lineage is never revelaed in the show or books. It is only speculation. The producers of the show once said that in speaking with Martin, they guessed Jon Snow's identity and he confirmed it was correct. However, they would not say what their theory was. Take that for what it's worth. I wouldn't intentionally spoil such an important part of the series.
|36 weeks 3 days ago||I started watching True||
I started watching True Detective as something to bridge the gap until GoT. I didn't think it would it be nearly as good as it is. My theory is about Cohle and Hart is that they have been secretly investigating the murders/conspiracy surrounding the murders to present day. To go further, I think they never had a true falling out. It was merely staged for one reason or another, similar to the "firefight" that led to Reggie Ledoux being killed. Cohle and Hart have been secretly working together all along.
Regarding GoT, I have a theory that Jon Snow is the love child of Rhygar Targarian and Lyana Stark. The only reason Ned never revealed his identity, was that Robert would have had Jon killed out of spite. This is the "promise" that Ned made to Lyana on her deathbed.

As someone who had a very serious eye issue when I was five, I can attest to the quality of the Kellogg Eye Center. Twenty years later, and I still feel grateful that we have such a high class medical campus only thirty minutes away.

Top 2 games I play currently are Counter-Strike and Napolenic Wars (Warbands mod)

As someone who plays various games through Steam, I think this is an excellent idea. Good work.

They didn't. It was an actual play where the player flopped to the court in protest to the ref. I enjoy that pic because of THJ's reaction of wtf.

Agreed. NEVER use Western Union when purchasing items. I have heard nothing but horror stories.

I read comments like these and can't help but to wonder; What the fuck is wrong with people?

I'm sure the team will be very disappointed to hear that you have better things to do with your time.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||Well said. This comment is||
Well said. This comment is one of the few redeeming ones. Based on some of these comments I'm ashamed at the very idea one of these kids will more than likely read them.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||I feel like the comments on||
I feel like the comments on this board have been half frustrated/mostly intelligent and half red-cedar message board quality bullshit.
Fire Beilein?!?! Are you fucking kidding?? Yes, because we'd be so much better off with the likes of Phil Jackson that I'm sure most of the bandwagon fans think we're capable of getting. Enough of this shit every goddamn time we lose.
This team is young and they will continue to lose in frustrating ways (is there ever a non-frustrating way to lose?). Either way I will continue to support them. There is my $0.02.

I'm taking Audit on April 1st. I think the order for now is AUD, BEC, REG, and FAR.

I'm not sure that this had a whole lot to do with Kelly interviewing with the Eagles. I think it was Mike Farrell about a month or two ago, who said he would be shocked if Anzalone didn't end up flipping to Florida. It sounds like this was months in the making.

Seriously though it's only a matter of time until that's an actual quote. Jemele Hill = Rob Parker in terms of reporting ability/racial profiling.
|1 year 45 weeks ago||Rob Parker is such an asshat.||
Rob Parker is such an asshat. This is the same guy who asked Marinelli whether he wished his daughter had married a better coordinator.
Even more insulting than his comments was the completely asinine, yet unsurpising follow up question by Bayless, "What about his braids?"
You know something is ridiculous and offensive when Stephen A. Smith states on live air that something made him uncomfortable.
Essentially, Parker said if you are a "real" black person, not a "cornball" black person, you must be a democrat, date or marry a black female, and preferably have dreads or braids. Par for the course for First Take though.
|2 years 5 weeks ago||Not in the minority||
If I was a D-1 athlete I would be irritated by the fact that people are making money off of my $90 jersey and $60 video game, but I don't have enough money to go out for a nice dinner.
I would have a hard time arguing.
|2 years 14 weeks ago||Agreed||
Agreed, I'm getting married on a beach in Traverse City in twelve days. No place like it in my mind.

Agreed. The test is to watch that overgrown child make an ass of himself, screaming and jumping around a bunch of teenagers, while resisting the urge to chuck the ball straight at his dick.

Counting down the time until I get out of work for the start of what will hopefully be a great weekend, including my bachelor party tomorrow. However, golf and a tigers game sounded a lot better before I read the weather report. High 90's with scattered thunderstorms.

Good luck! I started studying recently and it is truly a grind.

Congrats! That is excellent news.

Went to the preview last night. They provided everything from the food court as well as a carving station with roast beef, salmon, and pulled chicken. The food alone was worth going. Gas for $3.33 a gallon at their station didn't hurt either.
|2 years 18 weeks ago||American Express Costco Card||
If you are a Costco member or have any desire to become one, I would highly recommend the American Express Costco Card.
There is no annual fee other than your $50 Costco membership and it gives very nice rewards. I currently get 3% on gas, 2% on travel and restaurants, and 1% on everything else.
Also, you get 90 days of accidental damage protection on almost all major electronic purchases and they extend the manufacturers warranty up to an extra year.
Lastly, their customer service is second to none. Just my two cents.

As a poster stated above, downtown West Dearborn is very nice. Many cool bars such as Bailey's (my favorite) and good restaurants. You will have both a nice downtown area and close proximity to your job. Try this site:
I bought a house in Livonia last year and it is definitely not a renter's haven nor does it have a downtown presence. It is a very nice city to live and raise a family, but if you are looking for a more upbeat, lively city, I think Dearborn or Royal Oak is a good place to start. Good luck and congrats!
