I have been here for an hour waiting at the indoor track building. Any other mgobloggers waiting to get some michigan gear?

I just got up myself, but after I fulfill my parental obligations and take the kids to the pool (looks like the indoor one will work better today), I am going to try and swing by.

This line is like the latest episode of curb your enthusiasm with the chat and cuts. When I got here there was ~100 people in front of me, now there is ~150...

I got there around 4:30 and I was about 20-30th in line. Between then and 5 no one will really showed up, but after that the line just blew up. I just left and the line snaked down the length of the baseball stadium and halfway down the length of Yost. Insane line.

LOL.

I saw that too.  I found it on a table by the jersey racks and I was thinking, "This one is in good condition.  What name is on the back?"  I saw Boren and dropped it.  I wonder if anyone bought it.

I got in line about 715 and by the time i got in there was still alot of stuff. im assuming the good jerseys were gone, but i got a no. 94 nike jersey, football pants, a sweet adidas windbreaker and a practice football for 95 bucks. I look like garret rivas when i put it on though.

I had planned on going, but decided against it after reading how long the line was. I've never understood is why so many people are willing to to wait multiple hours in line just to buy things at a small discount.

I think the bigger allure is the game-worn merchandise.  That's not easy to find elsewhere.  If you can manage to find an actual jersey (not an "authentic" one at M-Den, but one a player wore), you're going to pay a lot more than $50 for it. 

If you don't want to wait in line forever, don't come when it opens.  I got there at 10:30.  There were still probably 100 jerseys for sale, and a lot of other stuff.   There was no line to get in.  I waited 25 minutes in line at the checkout for credit cards (though if I'd brought cash or a check, it would have been five minutes, tops).  No big deal.

Yeah obviously you don't know what you're talking about. I used to go every year. I have several pair of game worn basketball shorts that were like $15/ea. The coolest deal was a friend of mine who got one of Robert Traylor's size 15 game worn Nike's for $5 and had him sign it later on. The garage sale rules.

For some it is an opportunity to own another piece of the Michigan experience, and for others it is a chance to get a great deal.  Different people have different priorities.

I bought a pair of Michigan hockey pants there about 6 years ago and they are by far the best ones that I have ever owned.  I got them for about 1/3 of what I would have paid retail, they have survived many seasons on the ice, and they have the added benefit of having the Block M on them.  What could be better?

Well you cannot afford my jersey, a game worn home Nike Zoltan Mesko jersey. My prize from the garage sale. Yes, I have the jersey of the Space Emperor of Space and all of the intergalactic powers it comes with. 

edit: what's overrated with a Zoltan "Space Emperor of Space" Mesko jersey?
