Are you suggesting that coconuts migrate?
|2 weeks 5 days ago||YES. Definitely the Molly||
YES. Definitely the Molly McGannon game. I was in HS at the time, but I was there and it was fantastic. I remember it being so loud my ears hurt -- seriously. As far as football goes, I remember my first game in person, 1996 vs. Indiana. It was homecoming and we played very poorly and I remember sitting next to old, insufferable people talking about how boring the game was. I also remember the Illinois game from 1999 and how much that game pissed me the hell off. Lloyd for some reason liked to start putting his backups in while the other team was still in the game to some extent and it ended up biting us in the ass. We only lost 2 games that season too. I think most of the random memories I have of games that weren't great Michigan wins are losses that especially stung, such as the one I just mentioned. Oddly I remember Indiana in 2006 -- Herbstreit had called Stevie Breaston "worthless" earlier in the week and he ended up returning two kicks for TDs. Also, Michigan fans at the game (it was away) started chanting "Ball St.'s better!" as the Cardinals had just played us rather tightly the week prior.

Yeah I'll be in Europe. I haven't missed watching at least some of any Michigan game since 1994 (when I was very young and didn't give a shit)-- now's a good time to break the streak.

Cool man. Who are you rooting for, though? CR7 username and United avi.....lol.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||This has absolutely nothing||
This has absolutely nothing to do with Michigan's ranking...but come on. These rankings are a JOKE. BYU at #9??? Who has ever seen BYU on a "top schools" list. And I've never even heard of like a quarter of these schools.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||So it looks like I have no idea where we'll be for||
So it looks like I have no idea where we'll be for sure. anyone who wants to stop by just please make sure you visit our Facebook page. As I said I'll post that morning where we are.

Wow. This is getting tricky. Haha. Thanks for the info.

please make sure you stop by if you're gonna be at the game. If not, visit the Facebook page and send a message to it. I'll get back to you ASAP with our details.

Did a RichRod argument just break out??!? What year is this???
|3 weeks 2 days ago||uhhhhhhh????||
Sarcastic tones are often lost on the interwebs...I'm just gonna go ahead and assume that's what happened here....
|3 weeks 2 days ago||It is, unfortunately true.||
It is, unfortunately, true. CodeBlue was kind enough to point this out to me. We will be at Pioneer, most likely. Check the Facebook page (which I linked above) if you're interested in coming -- I'll post a screenshot of my GPS when we get there.

haha...yeah that might throw a wrench into the old plans. I'll look into that later. thank you!

So when you sign up to be an AO member they send you a tee shirt....I had the exact same thought as soon as I saw it. It's ironic though as I assume soccer is probably not hugely popular in Harley-rider circles...lol
|3 weeks 2 days ago||You should stop by! come talk to a few of us||
You should stop by! come talk to a few of us "soccer slappies" (as my co-worker calls me) and maybe we can build upon your World Cup fever. If nothing else, soccer fans are fantastic drunks and usually very nice people too!
|3 weeks 2 days ago||That's a solid point. get there early and park on||
That's a solid point. get there early and park on the golf course, I guess.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Agreed wholeheartedly. I||
Agreed wholeheartedly. I noticed someone already downvoted my original post. LOL. People are scared of soccer becoming popular and that is absolutely hilarious to me.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Very cool, thanks for||
Very cool, thanks for sharing.
Here's the link:
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Haha...The number of people||
Haha...The number of people who have said that to us is quite hilarious, actually. I guess you could say that's half the reason we're doing it. The AO-Detroit chapter was in Livonia until very recently (they've since moved to Detroit proper) so it was a bit unnecessary to have two so close together (and against AO rules, as well). Now that they have moved so far away, we figured it was time.
|4 weeks 10 hours ago||Unless they DO make changes,||
Unless they DO make changes, 22 is WAYYYYY too old to start your career as a soccer player. As the US continues to get better and gain more respect internationally (and even as MLS gets better), you will see fewer and fewer college players on future US World Cup rosters (other than maybe some goalkeepers who have much longer professional careers -- see Brad-I should have let the Make-a-Wish kid score-Friedel). College soccer's unlimited subs and countdown clock are things that absolutely need to be changed if they are to be taken seriously for professional players.

It probably felt like home because of that giant Michigan block "M" made out of rocks.

DCFC. Get on board now...we'll be in the MLS some day.

Just buy something with the Netherlands on it. Surely you don't have a superman-esque closet with every NCAA team's apparel in it???
|6 weeks 6 days ago||seriously stop. it's not funny anymore. never was||
seriously stop. it's not funny anymore. never was for that matter. it's early fucking July...it's not like anything noteworthy that's Michigan related has happened anyway. And it's your fault for not liking soccer not ours. it's as simple as not reading it....
|6 weeks 6 days ago||I was wondering the same thing||
I would love a soccer blpg by Brian. he's a better soccer writer than anyone out there and I read them ALL.
|7 weeks 6 hours ago||I upvoted you to make up for||
I upvoted you to make up for this comment...lol...but the Wings did not win the Cup the night before. The Wings won the Cup 6-13-2002 and that game was 6-5-2002.
But those are minor details, of course. I too used to have to hunt for people to watch games with, but in the last 10 years the number of people watching ANY USMNT game has grown exponentially. I assume you don't live near Ann Arbor based on that fact that you still don't know people who watch games -- but if somehow you do and you just don't happen to know any soccer fans, I highly suggest you make it out Conor O'Neills downtown. Hordes of us there.

No way, man. Not me. Not even close. Fucking Crosby scored and jdsigjuohgiushgaughgohsgsuguaisguahsgksg................ GAH that game STILL pisses me off.
|7 weeks 6 hours ago||This is easily one of the||
This is easily one of the best pieces ever posted on this site. And that's saying something. Every point was just So. Very. Well. Said. I don't think I've ever "yep"ed and "mhmm"ed my way through an article so much before, especially a soccer one since so many of them are so poor and written by people who only think they understand the game.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Are you playing in the A2||
Are you playing in the A2 area? I have been looking everywhere for some pickup footy and other than the occasional game at Elbel with kids much younger and fitter than I, I haven't found anything, really.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Wow that made me feel super||
Wow that made me feel super old. '19 and '22??? Those sound like "flying cars" type years? Haha. Happy Friday, everyone!
