Friday Night Open Thread

Submitted by justingoblue on December 7th, 2012 at 10:21 PM

What's the MGoCommunity up to tonight? I've got a quiet night at home going on with some Fat Tire and Jameson; music on right now, maybe a movie later on.

Anyone up to anything good? Bad? Drinking anything good? Bad? Listen to any good music lately, or see a good movie?

M Women's Volleyball beat MSU tonight, for those that missed it, and will advance to the Elite Eight. MBB gets ready to avenge a loss to Arkansas tomorrow at noon. Hockey is off this weekend.

Yep. I agree. It's a great show, and it bugs me when people won't give it a shot just because it's popular (not referring to the guy who posed the question, btw). Great production value, interesting characters, and crazy cliffhangers and callbacks to earlier episodes. Love it.

Although I agree that there is a lot of non-zombie shit going on in The Walking Dead, the fact remains that zombies are rarely the main antagonist in those shows. I've never read the graphic novels either, but I can at least appreciate that there IS a storyline to be followed, unlike most shows that don't know when to stop.

Eh.  I imagine once February comes around and the second half of the season resumes it'll be an okay topic to discuss.  Yes, basketball will be the prime material, and rightfully so, as a Big Ten title will be on the line as well as a No. 1 seed(!!!), but I think such material as a very popular show should be legit message board material in the middle of Winter.  (My humble opinion, anyways).

This feels like being a grammar nazi, but, this is obviously more important. "Fat Tire" and "Ranger" are both beers made my "New Belgium" brewing company. Both are exceptional, I prefer the ranger, which I would guess is what you are enjoying tonight. Fat Tire just happens to be the most popular beer from this particular brewery. Either way, great choice and enjoy.

Just realized I was 1 point away from getting to 1000pts (which embarrassingly took over 4 years to accomplish).  So I though, what better way to reach this milestone by posting something that represents what I contribute to the blog on a semi-regular basis: a pointless gif!  Enjoy.

I can't decide if there is one, two, or three women in this. I know it isn't four, but I can't decide what one or two of the "others" are... Should I stop drinking or is anyone else confused by one or two of the "others"?

Little Sumpin, then took my kids to dinner and the mall...let them check out Brookstone, which meant they tried every massaging gadget there and added the remote control helicopter to their Christmas lists. Home by 9, in bed by 10...still wasting time on line at 11:30.
