OT-Soccer Blog?

Submitted by GoWolverines16 on August 27th, 2010 at 4:15 PM

I was always a "follower" of soccer but the World Cup put me over the top and now I'm a big fan.  I read the stuff on ESPN but they hardly ever write new articles.  So, is there a good soccer blog out there that anyone knows of or is ESPN the best place to go?

So, I just missed a call from my buddy who is a fellow UofM student and MgoBlogger. I haven't talked to him in about a month or so, but he left me a message, and...well...why don't you guys just listen to it. I have no idea what he's talking about. Maybe someone out there does...?

Dear MGoBlog Community My girlfriend just recently purchased a used Saturn ion. The car is bright blue with a bright yellow double pin stripe. All of her previous cars had names and since this one is so approriately michigan colored we are looking for a name that is michigan related. Any ideas? Thanks

So I think I'm finally ready to take the leap to a smartphone. I'm really interested in the HTC Touch Pro 2, as it has both a physical keyboard that slides out, as well as a large touch screen. Anyone have experience with that phone?

Anyways, I'm thinking about buying it unlocked on eBay. However, I heard from a friend that the 3G might not work if the seller sends me a phone from Canada/Europe/Asia. Is there something I need to look out for?

Any other tid bits?

Good time charley's was ranked the #14 college bar in america by a place i've never heard of before, complex.com. No clue who they are, but still, good for chucks. Not to long ago they were almost going out of buisness, then they shut down for awhile, got a facelift, and reemerged as an awesome college bar. Oh, and feel free to skip #12, the editors must have made a mistake.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, the Big Ten demolished the SEC by a score of a lot-to-a-little.

Meta - Double points?

Meta - Double points?

Submitted by gbdub on August 24th, 2010 at 10:11 AM

Lately (it looks like since the last MGoPoints rule change), I've been getting double points every time I receive an upvote or downvote. For example, if someone votes me +1, my account lists 2 points for receiving a +1 vote and 2 points for someone voting on my content for a total of 4 points. Is anyone else seeing this?

EDIT: post not intended to open the "meaning of points" argument, just seeing if the blog was working the way Brian wanted it to, since there were so many pixels spilled trying to get it right recently.
