META: Record number of Muppets this week?

We have now had Muppets three times in four days.  Is this a new MgoBlog record, or can someone remember another time this happened?

Wolverine Historian’s post there is the most relevant:

WolverineHistorian: ... Long story short, someone found clips on YouTube of the Muppets performing "Temptation" and "Hawaiian War Chant."

Both of those songs, of course, have been a big part of the Michigan tradition with the fans since the 1950's...(You can't have one without the other.) That's basically it. It's characters from our childhood singing the songs of our team. Me personally, I wasn't alive in the 70's when the Muppet Show was on the air but I remember watching the reruns when I was in pre-school. When I was in 1st grade, Muppet Babies premiered and it was the highlight of Saturday morning cartoons.

No big deal that you didn't understand the Muppet thing. What's more disturbing to me is that many of the current students don't even know the name "Temptation." They just call it "The You Suck Song." ...

I’d find it a lot more badass if we played clips of our band playing those songs as opposed to Muppets. Maybe it’s just me.
