Boys, you must strive to find your own voice. Because the longer you wait to begin, the less likely you are to find it at all. Thoreau said, "Most men lead lives of quiet desperation." Don't be resigned to that. Break out!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!  

Seems like a perfect day to reflect, find some inner calm, and maybe share some poetic thoughts heading into The Game.

Many of your posts have brought a smile to my face in year when I needed I smile or two.  Today is a good day to thank you for that.

I'll choose a haiku for my meager contribution, but feel free to express yourself in whatever form suits you best.  Accompanying photos encouraged.    Do what you do...


after turkey feast
drowsily sitting on couch,
Ohio game I fear

We had one last week

Thought it couldn't get much worse

I guess I was wrong....

Two bottles of Coke

A crisp Autumn Saturday

Still too expensive


Men out of their depth

Even Gophers feast this Fall

My soul dong is numb


A yellow hanky

Lonely headset chirps unheard

Shane drops back again


Where are the grownups?

This is not my Michigan

Sack Hoke and Brandon!


4 point Rutgers dog

Is the Michigan ManTM doomed?

Rich Rod laughs sadly

[ed-S: senior haikus are coming]

Dear Readers of MGoBlog,

I have read Brian's twitter reactions, and I hope to help improve the MGoBlog community through improved board content.

Haikus are almost certainly MGoBlog's poetry form of choice. These are generally viewed as three lines of poetry following a 5-7-5 syllable pattern. However, I have come across a fantastic resource that discusses why this form does not have to be followed precisely (link). A few other pointers from the website:

1. Haikus tend to examine the thing which caused an emotion and not the emotion itself.

2. Haikus, while not following a 5-7-5 structure precisely, are still sparingly worded and are written in three lines.

3. February is National Haiku Writing Month.

I hope this enriches your poetry and improves the board!

My boss just left so I have the huge decision of whether or not to try and duck out early on a Friday afternoon.  Would be a no-brainer except last time I got the dreaded phone call while in the car.  To pass the time let us create some 5-7-5 poetry in honor of East Lansing Veterinary College. Here are a few to start the ball rolling:

Last year staee coaches

Proved it wasn’t just Rich Rod

Hoke understands now


My hot ex girlfriend

Went to this shitty ag school

Who is Thom Gholsthon?


Bonus World Series haiku:

Outside in the dirt

Yankee batters swing away

Ilitch deserves this
