There is a movement afoot about creating a European Super League that will include every known powerhouse teams including ManU, Barcelona, RM, Bayern, and others.

Stadium Foods Safety Report - Not Great

Stadium Foods Safety Report - Not Great

Mates,

Ran across this one on ESPN, where they did a survey of all the pro stadiums for their food safety/cleanliness.  They allegedly reviewed something like 16,000 inspection reports. They figured 111 venues, but only 107 were still in business.  I know some of you are 'consumers' of pro sports in regards to attending the events and, assumedly, at least the occasional visit to the concession stand.

Somebody later on today can definitely give a preview of this game, but I wanted to give everyone a heads up that this game is in the afternoon and on TV! With a win, they would play Saturday at 8:00 PM on ESPNU.

No detailed post. Just a note that our women's volleyball team swept Navy in round 1 of the NCAA tournament this afternoon, 3-0. 

I would link to MGoBlue.com, which somehow shows that Michigan lost, but I can't paste on mobile...  :|

They'll play the winner of Pittsburgh and Iona tomorrow at 6pm EST.

Go Blue!

I know this is an odd post, but I'm hoping to get some advice, suggestions, or stories of failure. I figure there might be a handful of folks out there who are curious about this question.

I'm trying to get a Beilein autograph of a photo I took.

Debated whether to post of not... but first I've heard of it and not insignificant. Simon was charged today in Eaton County District Court with two felony counts and two misdemeanor counts. Simon faces up to four years in prison if convicted. An arraignment is set for Monday. MSU interim President John Engler said in a statement that the university is "aware of the charges brought today against former President Simon" and that Simon is taking "an immediate leave of absence, without pay, to focus on her legal situation." MSU will pay for Simon's legal fees, an MSU spokeswoman said.
