|2 weeks 6 days ago||i just watched the hockey clip||
And a warm tingly feeling all over. The announcers, the ass kicking of bg, the cheering of gassoff, the van ryn throwing the bg guys stick over the boards to the student section... this is why we need a time machine, marty.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||co-signed on old yost||
Was a student from 96-2002 and yeah starting about 2001 students started getting tix to be part of the experience vs being hockey fans first and foremost. The organic energy of making that midget shit goalie from western actually cry on ice, ortelling the ref he was wrong on the icing call because he had expanding ass pants didn't need a facebook page or organized group to make it happen. It just did because there were smart hockey fans there. I read an interesting piece the other day about how social media and the internet have decreased barriers but reduced the development of local communities since everyone's "so connected". I wonder if that's the case for hockey fandom at yost too. Pre-facebook, yost fans were a cult that you had to be initiated in via fire tinged battles against ron mason's skating goon circus. Now you just have to "like" something and dance so you get on youtube. Now get off my lawn.
Btw- bob gassoff is old yost fans bill brasky. "I once saw bob gassoff take his skate off during a game and disembowel a st cloud st mascot on the ice. True story."

"According to Dr. Jens Persson from the Swedish Wolverine Project,"....
and I was surprised to continue reading and see it was about the claws of wolverines, not Red's secret recruiting team in a safehouse in Stockholm trying to find the next Carl Hagelin. Oh well.

Back to you

Who is a BC grad is fond of saying, "it sucks to BU"
|6 weeks 4 days ago||wow.||
First two weekends of the season after we lost our top two 1st rd nhl defencemen, huge questions in goal, a suspended top scorer, and a loss to a canadian college team, and we have 3 quality wins and a tie over 2 top 5 teams with a backup goalie in net for one of them. Sounds like for this season, I picked the wrong time to give up sniffing glue.

The commie bastards all at once. They go on a long march and only thehardiest ideologues survive, forming an ideologically pure enemy.
Or at least that's what I learned from reruns of fraggle rock on cbc.

It still disappoints me that as a USAF member I can't play Annapolis. We let u sea slugs on our tracks. :)
|12 weeks 5 days ago||i can vouch for||
Unm and Eisenhower blue. Unm is a meticulously kept course in a notoriously arid locale. Eisenhower blue is basically mountain golf perfection. If u get a chance to play Eisenhower blue, stick around and play the silver. Shorter but more twisty.
|20 weeks 4 days ago||totally depends on your daughter||
As a hs recruiter for michigan, u want to make it awesome for HER so that she walks away with an impression that she wants to go there, not that dad wants her to go there so he can get football tix/play the golf course/visit the microbrews/etc. A couple things:
|23 weeks 5 days ago||northern michgan||
Inlaws have a big cottage between alpena and Rogers city. Lake access, good beer store in alpena (Jimmy's) and relaxation.
|25 weeks 5 days ago||sounds like your dad likes more mass friendly beer||
A good bridge into craft brewing with a michigan connection is sam adams cherry wheat. Made with michigan cherries (even in last years disaster of a cherry season, sammy adams still managed to buy enough cherries for their needs from a traverse city grower I know), its still relatively light in "beer flavor", has delicious cherry overtone, and is a great summer drinking beer. Plus with u being under 21, sam adams is pretty easy to find and your mom/older sister/uncle/aunt can easily ask for sam adams cherry wheat without getting confused.
Otherwise, find your local microbrewer and purchase an empty growler from them for your dad and tape a $20 to it so he can buy the beer for it. Plus he'll probably pass it on to u in some time :)
|28 weeks 2 days ago||for prototype pistons series||
Watch the 88 finals against la. Then watch the 89 championship video or if u can find it, just the cbs post-game mashup of the pistons winning their first title. Highlight clips set to the music of "the way you do the things you do". Last time network tv did a goood post title mashup with appropriate music that isn't. Pop song of the day.
Underrated player on those teams- budda edwards. His fade away turn around jumper was as unstoppable as kareem's skyhook. Shame no post up players in the nba have signature post moves anymore....

I work for DoD satellite engineering, so I read:
For career stuff, i always look at usajobs.gov and the job search engine on spacenews.com. if you are still a student, the best thing to do from my perspective as a recruiter for my company is to be available for a coop. That is the #1 thing to establish links into competitive industries like satellite engineering.
For a fun tech read, I like information dissemination (naval blog focused on military ship bldg / navy issues) and wired's danger room.
|33 weeks 2 days ago||the story of detroit pizza||
The style considered detroit pizza started at the original buddy's. After a while there were two brothers who wanted to expand the business. There was a disagreement and one bro took over the buddy's pizza and the other started loui's pizza in hazel park on dequidre s of 9 mile. The brother who stayed at buddys eventually sold out the franchise rights and after a while wasn't happy with the changes so he brought his version of the original buddys recipe to shields. Then in the 80s you had jets and little ceasars bring their deep dish sqaure to market. Thiks was relayed to me from my dad, rip, an old polack from hamtramck who loved his pizza. Btw- he still thought loui's was the best

At the kings table location if mine or one of the two other teams with significant um alums on the team win our league title tonight, we'll be drinking from our stanley cup replica at the bar... nothing like celebrating a hoops natl title and broomball league title by drinking bells two hearted ale out of a 16-in tall hockey trophy

But i'd go with:
"Suck it" w/ crotch chop
"Yes, but that's bc boeheim is a nazi"
"Scoreboard" even cutting them off mid-sentence
"Look u guys deserve to get fucked over after bernie fine, ok?"
|35 weeks 1 day ago||trouba was an enigma wrapped in a conundrum||
I thought he played like an nhl ready guy in the world juniors but on michigan I thought he played frustratingly meh. Flashes of brilliant skill and physical play were almost always followed by brain farting penalties or numbnuts turnovers in the defensive zone. I didn't think he was close in overall play to JMFJ or even a frosh Merrill. So, overall I'm not surprised he's leaving but I also think he could've used another yr of maturing like Johnson took advantage of.
