|17 weeks 4 days ago||You are right..||
It was a bit over the top; I must have been groggy from the plane. That being said, I always thought of myself as more of a dick than an idiot. My wife learned that soon after I met her when she asked why I had tape stuck across the front of my football helmet with the word 'DICK' printed on it..
|17 weeks 5 days ago||I just left..||
I just left London this morning, but I wasn't there long enough to miss a game (4 nights), so I didn't have to scramble to find a place to watch the game.
You have to plan ahead in the fall. I was asked to do a speaking tour this fall in NZ / Australia / Singapore / KL / Shanghai, but I turned it down so I didn't have to deal with missing games. If they want me, they can schedule the tour when it is convenient for me..
|25 weeks 4 hours ago||The food was great!||
Darlene and I say that Coach Harbargh is a great food critic (though he missed *us* by a mere two weeks)..
|30 weeks 4 days ago||Nice shirt...||
Nice Ohio State shirt.... Did you get that at a thrift shop?
|30 weeks 6 days ago||I nearly did the same||
I got as far as a letter saying I had been accepted to AOCS in Pensacola, but in the end I did not get to go. I was already out of school and was a CPA.
In the end, it worked out well. I know own a software company and have my own plane that I fly into Ann Arbor (from Alabama) for some of the home games.. Moral of the story: I may not be flying jets, but I am flying and having fun. Mgolund, don't give up on the thought of flying!

Laces Out Fickell!
|1 year 12 weeks ago||Easy||
Music City would be easy for me, but I would expect that a team that was in the CFP conversation up until the last week would be selected for a more respectable bowl game.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||I was in Seattle||
I was in Seattle Airport wearing my ever-present Michigan sweatshirt when an OSU fan in his red sweatshirt sat down beside me.. I asked if he had found that sweatshirt at a thrift shop or something.. Of course, this was before Macklemore made thrift shops cool..
|1 year 22 weeks ago||Thank God||
Thank God I didn't get the blame for the wave breakdown; I was in Section 8. That being said, my 3 year old granddaugther did her best, but my 9 month old grandson (and future Michigan commit), both in their first visit to the Big House, did not contribute.
I am home in Alabama this week but will be there in spirit (and watching on BTN).. Go Blue!
|1 year 23 weeks ago||My Son||
My son was living in Missoula for the summer, but he came home to Alabama for the winter.. This weekend, though, we have tickets for the game and are thus in Ann Arbor.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||Love it||
As a fellow MGoPilot (and, why yes, that *is* my 210 sitting at KARB..), I will be thrilled to see the flyover. I don't live in fear. <BigGrin>
|1 year 28 weeks ago||You missed it by two weeks||
Coach, you missed by two weeks my fabulous wife, Darlene, striking the pose at Anahuacalli. BTW, the owner of the place claimed that he sat us at "your" table.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||VPN||
When I am overseas, I sign onto my company VPN which makes it appear as though I am on a US network. I can then access my comcast account and stream games online from my regular TV provider.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||Heading to Paris||
I am heading to Paris next Thursday; I will make sure I wear my Michigan gear while I am there just in case JH is still hanging around..
|1 year 37 weeks ago||Here in Huntsville||
Here in Huntsville, there are a lot of Michigan fans / bumper stickers / even hats among the engineering crowd! Saban doesn't know what he is talking about but, then again, he doesn't recruit rocket scientists.
|1 year 37 weeks ago||Great job||
Great job and see you back at the WCWS next year!
|1 year 40 weeks ago||I wish I could play guitar like that||
I saw BB King a number of times..
The first time was around 1985 when I took my 2 year old daughter to see him in a theatre in Saginaw; she graduated from UM 10 years ago and now teaches in northeast Michigan.
Another memorable time was when I took my family to see him in Huntsville, AL around 2001 or so and punk'd my son. We told him we had a surprise for him and drove to the civic center where BB was playing; it happened to coincide with the annual performances of the Nutcracker.. For about 30 minutes or so after we arrived, he was so pissed that we took him 'to the Nutcracker'. It wasn't until we actually took our seats that he realized why we were there..
BB, when I retire and finally have time to learn to play guitar properly, I hope to learn a few or your techniques..
|1 year 44 weeks ago||Early 90's||
I remember the first time I was able to exchange email with an old high school friend who worked at Motorola. My company only connected to the Internet to exchange email once a day and, in those days, you had to know the path of computers the email would take. In my case, the mail address to my friend was something like:
I also remember seeing and using one of the first beta versions of Mosaic (which later become Netscape)..
|2 years 11 weeks ago||I think||
I *think* Malzahn spent a year as the HC at Arkansas State...
|2 years 13 weeks ago||Frank Clark||
Frank is one hell of a football player. I hope he decides to move forward in a positive way and that someday he becomes one hell of a man.
|2 years 15 weeks ago||Never||
I have never been a big science fiction fan..
|2 years 19 weeks ago||The Leaders and the Best||
Notice that 'Leaders' comes first; perhaps this is the type of development the football team needed to take the amount of talent they have and focus it on winning games.
|2 years 20 weeks ago||Sure||
Sure, if that means I could be 20 again..
|2 years 20 weeks ago||The 4 F's||
|2 years 22 weeks ago||I wish..||
I wish I could flyover in my 210; the FAA frowns on that kind of stuff! <BigGrin>
FWIW, I have flown in a P-51 and it was definitely a cool experience; there is a good chance I may get to fly in it again next Saturday (in California though)..
|2 years 24 weeks ago||Your post||
Your post broke the rules
Must have seven syllables
Speaking strange today
|2 years 24 weeks ago||Not a big deal..||
Not a big deal to me either way.. On the other hand, Lemonade is good food!
|2 years 24 weeks ago||Trivial||
So my wife went to high school with Julianne Moore at the Frankfort American School (and were both captain of the cheerleader squad, homecoming queen, etc in their respective senior year). They even competed for the same football player, Mark Simmerlee, and, of course, my wife beat out Julianne..
So, what does that all mean? In the 25 years since she met me, she has become a die-hard Michigan fan.. Also, lucky me! <BigGrin>
|2 years 32 weeks ago||It's the shoes||
Perhaps it is just due to the fact that they are wearing Nike?
|2 years 35 weeks ago||Thrift Shop||
I flew into Seattle yesterday (of course I was wearing my 'Michigan Football' T-Shirt.. I ran into a guy wearing an Ohio State T-Shirt and, in light of Seattle being the home of Macklemore, I asked the Ohio State fan about his shirt:
"Pick that up at a thrift shop?"
