not sure who updates the map/list but Game Changers in Hermosa Beach, CA has been closed permanently for a while now. If only they could have lasted until the Harbaugh era, big profits.

Feel free to believe him, feel free not to. Either way he doesn't owe you shit. It's responses like yours that will prevent actual insider info being shared here in the future.
And just because you respond to a lot of these replies doesn't justify your attitude.

any football analyst that would prefer to have Kittle on their team over Butt should honestly think about a career change.

Wow, what a memory jog. I've got dozens of stories about those places as well as Touchdowns and Mitch's, RIP to both.
And to that point I've been to dozens of college campuses over the years and I'm sad to say the college bar scene in AA is probably only ahead of NW's main campus.

1. I was at a cadaver lab in Vegas with one of my spine surgeons. Michigan's first NCAA basketball tourney game under Beilein just happened to be scheduled during the didactic discussion. My surgeon and I sat in the back corner of the room watching the game on mute on my cell phone. It helped that he just happened to go to U of M med school.
2. Another NCAA tourney game was played when I was in China on a work trip. I woke up at something like 3am to watch the game, then back to bed.
3. I was in Houston visiting a girl that I had met in Vegas a month prior the same weekend as the NCAA baseball WS when Michigan made it to Omaha. Instead of going out and having a great time one afternoon I convinved her to stay at her place so I could watch one of our games. After that weekend I never talked to her again, but dammit if I was going to miss out seeing the block M represented in Omaha.
4. The one game I DID NOT see occurred during my brother's wedding. It was the loss to Illinois in 2002. No regrets with that.

I love the walk-on program that Harbaugh is developing. And as an aside I'm happy that the staff is able to make lemonade (3 walk-ons receiving scholarships) out of lemons (Mitchell/others suspensions/departures).

DVR the game. pause the game the ~5 seconds until it's even. profit.

I hear MSU is renovating their PED room. They've had the same one since Mandarich.

I did. Told my buddy yesterday (that also reads this board) that I don't think we're going to keep him and it's going to suck. Next day, boom...

A. Definitely prefer to hear this than the opposite.
B. I'd pump the breaks a bit that this O could be the best in 13 years until we see what happens at QB. Or at least I'm going to.

yeah man, sex vs. mocking her fanbase will be a tough call. although since she's your gf and not your wife I would think sex happens somewhat frequently. I'd go with the mocking...

haven't been to a game at Stanford yet. Would imagine tix are a bit easier to come by compared to other programs with similar recent success.
Think I'm going to Pats @ SF on Nov 20 so maybe we'll also hit up the Stanford @ Cal game across the bay that wkd.
|1 week 4 days ago||I'd like that play much more||
I'd like that play much more if the ball was on a hash at the snap. the more field for peppers to work with on that play the better.
|1 week 4 days ago||yeah it's a great time. the||
yeah it's a great time. the best part about it is walking around the tailgates eating/drinking for free as everyone is so friendly and just shoves it at you. especially if you wear a michigan hat, they love talking michigan football for some reason.
that lsu/bama game was at night and just electric. think I made out with a random cute girl at halftime of that game. she accidentally ended up in our seats when I left for the bathroom. I figured it was my duty to kiss her before sending her on her way.

thanks. I'll be there with my UNC grad school buddies so if history is any indication I'll be too drunk to even notice.
|1 week 4 days ago||great area you live/work. but||
great area you live/work. but traffic during rush hour is an absolute bear. although I think it's even worse just west of you around the wilshire/bundy area. when I'm in that area around rush hour I often park and grab beer/dinner in the area before my trek south.
|1 week 4 days ago||I've been out here 11 years||
I've been out here 11 years now and have really enjoyed the time difference. there's nothing better than winning our game by noon then heading to a game out here.
That said I've also gotten used to DVR'ing our crappier games so I can go to a fun local game.

yeah, I guess one of the benefits of having no kids/wife/dog.

very cool. I went to the usc/nd game a few year ago. there was a pack of nd fans jogging around the outside of the stadium loudly chanting "WE ARE, ND!". It gave me great pleasure to watch a crappy USC team blow their fugging doors off right out of the gate.

man, I'm not a paranoid person, and I also like to believe people are generally good, but I don't think I'd ever order food in Columbus wearing Michigan gear...

that bent arm wouldn't fly for legit NFL combine reps. good shit nonetheless.

Welp, she just made my list next to Serena
I hope she goes away and I never hear her name again.

Best thread all day.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||lol, so since my graduate||
lol, you really find that "delicious"? So since my graduate school's undergraduate professors fixed the grades of some athletes I'm not allowed to think Serena Williams is a shitty person? That makes sense. With logic like that I can only assume you did not actually attend a great academic institution like Dook. But if you did, yikes.
Mad bro? Because that is one helluva paper tiger argument. Made my day....
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I have no strong opinion on||
I have no strong opinion on MJ these days. But I did when I was a kid.
I detassled corn (worst job of my life, hot as hell, corn cuts on arms/legs, dirty brown drinking water, 12 hour days, bee stings, etc.) as a 14 year old to pay $360 to attend his basketball camp in Chicago in 1989. After he addressed the ~thousand campers and told everyone to go back to the dorms to get ready for dinner he just stood at half court while all the campers just walked by and stared. I found the courage to walk right up to him and shake his hand and introduce myself. He laughed and I walked away on cloud nine.
I then grew up and realized that these stars are nothing special, they're human. I stopped idolizing them once I realized that. I am probably the biggest sports fan that doesn't own a sports jersey with someone's name on it. When I met Jim Harbaugh out here in LA after his camp recently I was the only Michigan fan that didn't ask for an autograph/picture. I just wanted to shake his hand and get 30 seconds of his time. That's just how I roll I guess.
I'm not giving these examples because I think I'm better than anyone else. Everyone can do what they want. My point is that I do not idolize athletes, actors, etc. I'm sure Jordan could have been a better teammate and husband. Likewise I think Serena is a shitty person and do not root for her. You can have your opinion and I will not judge you. So I think it's funny that you judge me for having my own opinion of Serena Williams. The things I've heard about her over the years is enough for me to believe what I believe.

These are two stories, there are many more. Feel free to keep rooting for her. I will not because I'm not fans of shitty people just because they are good at sports.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Nope, per my screen name I am||
Nope, per my screen name I am absolutely allowed to root against coach k. You are allowed to have your own reasoning.
(Psst, I also was thrilled to see Serena lose because she is a shitty person).
Other than that go America!
