We just passed Penn State to take over 1st place. Keep tapping to keep us in first!
What are everybody's thoughts on the current debacle that is the Detroit Pistons? In a way this team reminds me of the 2001 Pistons (veterans on the team that can possibly be replaced by younger players).
The only difference (and reason why I feel they won't make a run) is that it's a completely different Eastern Conference. Back in the early 2000s, the only legitimate threat in the East were the NJ Nets. Indiana occassionally reared its head. Both teams were relatively vulnerable.
We will see after this off-season but if the big 3 (Lebron, Wade, Bosh) get added to legitimate rosters in the East, it'll be tough to get past them.
Orlando has already established themselves as the guardians of the Eastern Conference for the next couple of years.
So announced a few minutes ago on ESPN Tigers-Yankees game, Eminem and Jay Z will be doing two shows, one in Detroit @CoPa Sept 2nd and one in NYC @Yankee Stadium Sept 13th. Eminem will headline Detroit and Jay Z headline NYC.
Should easily sell out as Jay Z and Eminem are easily the two biggest acts in Hip Hop. I might have to look into getting tickets as long as they dont get too crazy with the ticket prices!
My brother who lives in Charleston, SC and is a huge Michigan fan texted me this article from the Charleston City Paper the other day.
The "Lowcountry," which Charlestonians refer to their area as, wants the Buckeyes to go back to Ohio.
I found this article very entertaining and thought I would share it with you all. I enjoyed the buckeye comments at the end of the article as well.
I posted this once before, but just incase you didn't see it or vote, I'm gonna post it again.
I go to Bedford High School in Temperance, MI. Currently we're trying to build a new weight room and convert the old one into a wrestling room. Currently we don't have a wrestling room, and the wrestlers are forced to practice in a locker room. Plus our district has a multi-millon dollar debt and this project will cost $350,000. Just wondering if anyone here would like to vote for our school to get $250,000 from Pepsi. Please, your votes are much appreciated! We were in 13th place yesterday at midnight, now we're in 11th!
edit: 10th place since I posted this thread!
YOU CAN VOTE ONCE A DAY! Please vote as much as possible.!Use all your email accounts, plus you can vote once by connecting with facebook. Thank you to all!
I am not a big celeb follower so I don't know if he does this often, but apparently Leonardo DiCaprio was wearing the block M cap at the iron man opening. http://www.showbizspy.com/wp-content/gallery/leodic/ctr-000031.jpg
Don't ask me how I came upon this, it was a yahoo link.
Love to see random people in Michigan, Lions, Tigers, etc. hats
So, recently we've seen a lot of domination in sports. The NBA had 3 second round sweeps with the Magic obliterating the Hawks, the Cavs got owned by Boston last night, the Blackhawks completely out-played the Canucks in game 6, there was a perfect game in baseball, Halak has owned the NHL playoffs recently, etc.
Got me thinking, what's the most dominating sports performance you remember? Can be series long, game, inning, whatever, scoreboard, style of play, etc. Something that gave me a "He's playing like a man among boys" feeling. A couple off the top of my head:
Michigan vs ND 2006 47-21
U of M's defense vs. Penn State 2006. Even though we weren't scoring, i remember thinking, no way we lose this game, this is a crushing D
An Ali fight i saw on ESPNClassic a while ago - he used his right hand twice in the 7 round fight. got a 10 second knockdown in the 4th, and a KO in the 7th
The '85 Bears defense. Scores in the playoffs? 21-0, 24-0, 41-10. They gave up 10 points in 3 games on their way to the Superbowl. Anyone know a scarier man in glasses than Mike Singletary?
(Semi-OT because some of these might be michigan sports)
