Great Big Michigan Weekend Muppets

Submitted by JWG Wolverine on February 19th, 2018 at 1:16 AM

Ok, it is far past midnight, and Brian allowed the day to pass without giving the world some well-deserved muppets.

Sometimes, the conversation of muppets being over-used and losing their value comes up ("No Muppets until we beat OSU and MSU!"), and I agree that there are situations in which muppets can be a little more questionable.

However, this cannot be a questionable time for muppets. Softball picked up some quality wins, Swimming got a B1G Championship, basketball beat #8 ohio state, Nebraska was upset, giving us a better shot at the double bye in NYC...

and hockey SWEPT #1 Notre Dame.

That's right, ALL IN ONE WEEKEND.

In addition to all of this justification for muppets, calling for them has been pretty unanimous, especially in the POSBANG following the hockey win. Even though it isn't nearly as magical when I do it instead of Brian, I couldn't have lived with myself tomorrow if I had let this weekend pass without the well-deserved post being made at least by anyone.

For that reason, without further ado, Muppets? Muppets.

They are waiting for you in the comments below.

I don't know if it was the best weekend ever (I can think of some national championships and the '97 Heisman/win over #1 Duke) but it was very good.  

BTW, it's "further ado."

I think those are different than best weekends, those are best years, moments, and games.

This was an all-around weekend filled with great results from Michigan teams.

Also, thanks for the ado/adieu correction! It sounds like it is a pretty common mistake based on what I found from Google!

Glad I'm not the only one who remembers that weekend in 1997 when basketball came back from 18 down to upset #1 Duke at Crisler and Charles Woodson won the Heisman, all in the same day. I remember going to that game with my buddy, rushing the court afterwards, and then heading over to the stadium and running around on the field (security wasn't as tight back then). Good times. I'm starting to feel like and old timer around here.

A Michigan sports weekend can be pretty great without a football win, but it's factually impossible for it to be this fanbase's "best ever" without including a football win. So yeah, this one was pretty great. And we mean it. And that's it. And that's OK.

My kids hockey team beat Anaheim tonight, to get into the championship game of a tournament in LA and he got out a shutout earlier today. Best sports weekend for me in I don’t know how long.

Hockey team sweeps Jeff Jackson, basketball gets the top ten win? Very good weekend. Don't think it's the best but I'll enjoy the muppets.

Also kinda geeked that John Shuster just beat Kevin Coe (Canada) in curling in 11 ends.

Who gives a shit. The fascination and over expectation of muppets on this board is weak ass.

Save the muppets for things that actually matter- postseason runs/wins and banners.

I was reading the New York Times this morning and they did talk about a Muppet shortage being possible in the coming years, so I suppose we should stock them now and save them lest we be in real trouble and are unable to post Muppets down the road. How short-sighted Man can be sometimes, right?

1. Congratulations to all UM teams for this outstanding weekend. Go Blue!

2. I understand the argument between Moar Muppets and Muppets Only for Really Special Reasons. Therefore, in the spirit of harmony, I'd like to suggest the following:

At borderline times like this, how about using the well-known Maize Rage clip from a few years back, with the guy having the screaming meltdown and the side-boob girl in the striped overalls?

I think we all can agree that if this weekend wasn't Muppet-worthy, it was still side-boob worthy.

Or... you could go to youtube and just play the muppets for yourself and let the powers that be put up muppets whenever they feel like it...

Or... a quick check reveals that the domain name is available.  You could run it as a spinoff and log all the times Brian has done you wrong by not giving you what you want, when you want, how you want. 

Or...  you could do what you did here, but without the unnecessary criticism of the guy giving away stuff for free.
