FWIW. Michigan doesn't seem inclined to get re-involved.

There were 86K+ at the Man Utd thrashing of LA Galaxy (7-0 LOL) last night.

I had four tix, but I can't go now. Put them on Stubhub, and they got bought late last night - in UPS to the new lucky owner in Southfield!

Fuck West Ham - I was accosted by a black-out drunk West Ham fan at RFK Stadium, of all places, after DC United had just beaten Leon for the CONCACAF Champions Cup (or whatever it's called). Dude punches me after I established my MUFC credentials, and then he falls down, proceeds to get arrested, and pisses his pants.
|5 days 19 hours ago||My two non-money leagues'||
My two non-money leagues' draft orders are done randomly. One of them has a live draft, and the other is an auto-draft (a ton of foreigners in it, and no one can agree on a live draft time).
My money league is done with a pot of each member's name randomly (and verified to be random) picked out. Then once the order of this is set, each member states where he wants to pick (we do a snake live draft).

The 1997 OSU game started at noon, but I was actually out in San Francisco. Given that I barely slept the night before due to the raging party I attended, I was still a tad tipsy when we got to some big bar packed with Michigan fans. All hell broke loose of course, but what was semi-amusing (for some reason) were the Cal and Stanford fans coming in at the end of the Michigan game. Everyone is already tanked and these clowns were all "what the fuck is up with these freaks?"

If Lavezzi and Perez have nice games, this should be a barn-burner.
Edit: Di Maria may play, per ABC commentators.

It doesn't get much better than Messi/Higuain, but yeah, Di Maria is a huge missing piece.

Drinking game suggestion
Every time they show Jogi Low knuckle-deep in his nose, finish your drink and immediately get another one ready.

Looks like the game may be on ESPN2 as well.

Brock Mealer story is on now on ESPNU because the USA-AUS world championship lax game is delayed in Denver due to weather...

Yep - the goodbye song coupled with that damned hurricane warning flag was just brutal (it was in '88, by the way).

Tomorrow's game is going to be a dogfight. I have Germany winning 1-nil.

Heh - "dong punch" is a perfect term for that Miami game. I was at the ND game in South Bend the week before, and while there, I, being stupid and sitting in the ND student section, got taunted a lot (you don't say!). The real culprits were two a-holes wearing Wisconsin gear who said they were on the Wisconsin football team (Wisconsin did not play that weekend). I laughed at them, and warned them what was going to happen to them in a couple of weeks in Madison, never mind the result of the Michigan-Notre Dame game.
So, we lose to ND and Miami, play and beat Wake Forest in a boring game, and head up to Madison. We pounded Wisconsin, 62-14.
OK, enough - best game I attended that we won IN ANN ARBOR was the UVA game in '95. I was so spoiled by winning during my time at U-M that a lot of the games were not that exciting. One fun game was when we beat Illinois in the aforementioned '88 season to clinch the B1G title. We rushed the field and picked up pieces of the Astroturf.
Best game I attended anywhere was the 2000 Orange Bowl, despite a massive hangover.

Thank you, gentlemen!

A buddy of mine loved Buenos Aires. He was there for about a year for business, and he said BA was way better than Rio. In fact, he liked Sao Paolo better than Rio. Beautiful women galore in BA.

Both squads are afraid of a repeat of yesterday lol
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I'm going to make a conscious||
I'm going to make a conscious effort to enjoy victories a lot more than I have in the past, and I am going to try to not let losses bum me out as much.
With that being said, I have nothing new to add -- the keys are marked improvement on the o-line, Gardner's decision-making, and interior d-line play. I see 8-4.

LOL - from now on, I'm using zulu time.

I wonder what the odds were on the 7-1 without Khedira scoring...just insane.

I was at the Iowa game too - coldest game they've ever had there, even though it was a beautiful, sunny day. I nearly got my ass kicked when we scored the pick-six.

Mein Gott!! I cannot believe this - poor Brazil :(
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I'm with you, but my gut is||
I'm with you, but my gut is telling me that Brazil is going to play out of their skulls, with or without Neymar and Silva. This is why I don't make money gambling.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I think the home-field||
I think the home-field advantage for Brazil gives them enough to match up with Germany. Then again, the immense pressure (really never seen anything like it in sports, actually) may backfire on the Brazilians.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I, like most people who had||
I, like most people who had success in sports (I was an all-American swimmer), hated losing more than I enjoyed winning. Losing to MSU is the WORST.
