You've probably noticed the ribbon at the top of the main column. There is also ad that will replace the HTTV ad on the right when I beat Drupal into submission about it, which I certainly hope is today. So here's the deal: the M-Den and MGoBlog have arrived at a mutually beneficial relationship where I advertise for their products and they give me money. It's an excellent match with the MGoStore; you can get your officially licensed apparel from the M-Den and your insidery MGoBlog shirts from the MGoStore. The M-Den is locally owned by lifelong fans and a longtime supporter of Michigan athletics, and they just lost the Michigan Stadium contract to Jerry Jones's band of carpetbaggers.
They're also a business and are looking for ROI. So if you're buying officially licensed Michigan apparel I hope it's from there and I hope it's via the ads on the sidebar or the sponsorship ribbon. It is in this way you can support the university, the M-Den, and MGoBlog.
I should also note that there will be a brief text advertisement at the bottom of a post once a week; these will be mostly for the Google purposes.
ALSO! We've placed two of Six Zero's outstanding shirts in the MGoStore, where they await your purchase. They are the contest winner and one of the runner-ups that was just too good to not put in the store. The mascot shirt was the winner:
And the "strike a pose" Desmond shirt, the runner up, has also been added to the store for total awesomeness:
I'm wondering if anyone is reconsidering The Forcier after last week's game. What say you about an addition? Yea or nay, class?
BONUS note: I'd like to thank Six Zero for the extensive work he put in on the shirt contest—there were about a half-dozen shirts that simply did not fit—and recommend him to anyone in search of graphic design of any variety. A couple people have already emailed me about getting in touch with him and I've forwarded along the inquiries. If you'd like to do the same, email me and I'll do the same.
