Michigan picks up a French Canadian CB commit!  Either for 2016 or 2017.


#Michigan has picked up a commitment from Montréal (QC) Cégep du Vieux cornerback Benjamin St-Juste (@BenjWolfpack24). Could be 2016 or 2017

Because of differences in high school requirements between Canada and The United States, St-Juste doesn’t yet know which class he will be in

It's like those French have a different word for everything!


PS: Tried to embed video to start at 19:07 or so, which is where I got the joke from, but could not get it to work. Used advice from the "Pretty Posts" sticky but to no avail. So you'll have to do it manually, sorry. I need to learn this skill.

There is a skit at the very beginning where famous comedians (Letterman, Henny Youngman, etc) are asking him comedy questions and taking notes...good stuff.

how many stars he translates to, there is one thing I am sure of: what we thought were the  Aurora Borealis  last night 

was instead the Canadian equivalent of a Bat Signal:

bat sign


....which happily now can also be sent in "broad" daylight:

Quick someone light the bat signal!

Not an expert but try this:

1) YouTube has a "Share" link below player window - click

2) window appears below - click "Embed" at top just below "Share" link that you just clicked

3) Embed code appears - copy

4) Go to MGo post and click "Switch to plain text editor"

5) Paste into Comment window field, and click "Save"

6) Repeat your new skill often!

My next goal is learn how to change the code to start the video at a certain point.  I tried it today but something went awry and I failed

I hope he has a thick French Canadian Accent. It's such a awesome tone for a bad guy... And were going to be some bad guys spoiling some dreams for other schools going forward. I hope he sounds like Kevin Owens...

I know...ever since De Gaulle said "Vive le Québec libre!" in a speech and Lester Pearson - and interestingly enough, much of the French media in Europe - openly criticized the speech (Le Monde even noting it was a breach of diplomatic protocol), relations between Quebec and the rest of Canada have been intriguing ever since.

The Chaos, keep rolling with it.  With it, In it, Through it, Around it, becoming it as One with it.  This is Harbaugh.  Welcome Benjamin
