|30 weeks 6 days ago||Dylan||
Surprised how few Dylan comments so far. As great as his earlier work is, Time out of Mind, Love & Theft, and Modern Times may stand up as his best work. Now, If he would just quit releasing Christmas albums and covering Frank Sinatra and record another classic or two while he still can, the world would be grateful!
|30 weeks 6 days ago||Keef, Charlie, et al||
Those 3 albums have to be the top of this list. Add Beggars Banquet for the run of four and it really is a staggering collection of great songs that define rock n' roll.
The Replacements run of Hootenany, Let it Be, and Tim would also be near the top of my list.

Don't miss the legendary Tim Carroll. He's a great song writer and guitarist who always puts on a great show. He plays the 5 Spot in E. Nashville every Friday, I believe from 6-9PM.
He started in a punk band in Indiana, then moved to NYC where he led the amazing Blue Cheiftains in pioneering what many would call alt-country. He then moved to Nashville to pursue and was signed to a major deal by Sire before they collapsed and couldn't release his big label debut. He works tirelessly and deserves every fan he gets. Highly respected in Nashville.
Here's an early country classic of his that's been covered by John Prine, among others.

At age 52,with an assist from his son, he blasted a backhander past the goalie from well past the face-off circle. Wow!

That Metrodome turf cost Billy Sims his career. He was unbelievable. Shame he didn't get a longer career.

How many beers in a Two-Four?
.....None for you, eh!

He attends Cretin Derham Hall, a well known Catholic school here in Minnesota. They have produced some impressive athletes including Paul Molitor, Joe Mauer, Chris Weinke, Seantrell Henderson, Steve Walsh, and Michael Floyd.

This will make it all the more enjoyable to beat them in a bowl game soon!
|4 years 31 weeks ago||Benton Harbor?||
I grew up spending my summers near Traverse City. There are some amazing places, the Sleeping Bear Dunes, Petoskey, Charlevoix, et al....But I recently took a trip from Minneapolis to New Hampshire. Our family stopped in Benton Harbor and we were really impressed with the beaches there. The sand was very fine and the water was warm! The entire Lake Michigan coast is fantastic!
|4 years 42 weeks ago||Yes!||
Far too few Napolean D. references on the blog!
|4 years 51 weeks ago||Home Brew!||
Brewed some beers at the Vineland Brewery in St. Paul, MN.
Just opened a hoppy ale..."100% Evil"!
|4 years 51 weeks ago||2 year starting QB in HS||
Ran the wishbone at Plymouth Salem HS under legendary coach Moshimer in the late 80's. Moshimer ran coaching clinics on how to run the wishbone, including for Bo!
I was too slow to ever play for Meechigan, but was recruited by schools like Kalamazoo.
Great memories and learned a lot about life through my experiences.

It is Festivus, fergodsakes!
|5 years 9 weeks ago||Sick (and tired)||
of half of the threads being filled with complaints about the post! (eg, "that was posted yesterday") Not sure why so many people feel the need to correct everything, especially after it was already pointed out. What's so hard about ignoring it and moving on to the next wonderful Mgoblog thread!?
|5 years 13 weeks ago||Those who stayed are champions!||
No pressure today. This team has been through so much and today will be a glorious celebration of all their hard work!
Can't think of a group of Michigan players that I am more proud of!
|5 years 13 weeks ago||We need him to succeed||
...up to The Game. I hope he is as successful as Cooper! I want to stroll in to their dumpy stadium and beat an undefeated team. Sweet Buckeye tears!
|5 years 13 weeks ago||Hmmmm...||
Something tells me there are no discussions like this on an Ohio blog. I posted a "Worst State Ever" image on my Facebook wall and the responses involved explaining why with references to Warren G. Harding, Rutherford B. Hayes ending Reconstruction, the second "W" term and Amish on Amish violence!
|5 years 13 weeks ago||That is Awesome!||
...the grafitti, not the wall of course!
It's a fascinating history. I grew up in Plymouth up through graduating HS. I didn't know about this wall's existence or history until much later in life despite it being, well, right under my nose. I'm curious as to how well known it is in the Detroit metro area today? I left in '88 (went to university in NY and then lived in Ecuador for 5 years before settling in Minneapolis. Minneapolis has it's own segregation history...the Mississippi river served as the 8-mile wall here.

|5 years 13 weeks ago||"right under the noses of the entire world..."||
It wasn't hard to do when the U.S. was openly anti-semetic. Parks often had signs up that read "No jews or dogs allowed in the park" and housing deeds all over the country were filled with racial exclusion clauses which typicall stated that no "negroes or jews" can enter the house unless employed a servant. These exclusion laws were not outlawed until the 1960s. Look up Detroit's "Berlin Wall."....aka 8 Mile which was the racial red-line that segregated the city.

Can't wait for a Michigan v. Arizona Rose Bowl!
|5 years 14 weeks ago||"This Michigan team is close to being among the best I have ever||
Great post, but I can't agree with that. I would say that this is one of the most enjoyable, deserving groups I have ever cheered for. Their legacy will not be that they were one of the best teams, but arguably one of the most important teams in that they prevented Michigan from becoming Notre Dame for 20 years of mediocrity. Bo would have loved these guys for perservering; never quiting, and being true "Michigan Men". That being said, there have been some unbelievably great teams the past 40 years, and I don't think this squad could compete with at least a dozen of them.
Beat Ohio and win a big bowl game and they may end up being my all time favorite Michigan team!
|5 years 14 weeks ago||Bo||
I'm thankful for growing up watching him and learning life lessons through how he led this program. Even 5 years after his death, he continues to influence people and define our program.
|5 years 14 weeks ago||Predictions!?||
I feel a beating coming on!
|5 years 19 weeks ago||Well done!||
You beat me too it!
|5 years 19 weeks ago||I'm officially worried...||
They have ZERO yards passing and they are in the 4th quarter and WINNING! There O and D lines look impressive. We need to keep improving in the trenches and get Denard going if we are going to win the rivalry game.
|5 years 22 weeks ago||Best Wishes||
I'm a die hard Michigan fan (from Plymouth, MI), but I have lived in Minneapolis since '99. I thought the Gophers finally hired an excellent coach. I wish him and his family all the best and hope he can bring the Gophers back to relevance so Michigan can really enjoy winning the Brown Jug!
|5 years 23 weeks ago||This is Michigan...||
We expect to be ranked.
It will be tremendous when we are a legit top ten team at the end of the year, win the B1G, and a real Bowl Game.
Until we prove that, this is not news.
