Michigan gear you got for Christmas?

Submitted by Wolverine Devotee on December 25th, 2013 at 10:41 AM

The usual thread posted every year!

I got a 2014 Michigan calendar, a $50 MDen gift card, some adidas socks & boxers, a Maize adidas M knit hat to replace the one I got at my first game back in 2003. Also a $150 VISA gift card which I will buy this beauty with-

Probably my favorite gift is an 8x10 of Shawn Hunwick's final steps off the ice at Yost.

Honorable mention- $30 in gift cards from family for White Castle.

Merry Maize and Blue Christmas!

zip up adidas jacket/sweatshirt and a maize and blue scarf.  (I'm a scarf gal)  I didn't get the hubby any clothes, but got him the Michigan gumball machine for our Michigan basement.

 (currently 2) one picture off of the mgoblue site every year for Christmas.  Last year I went with the game winning field goal against state, this year I had the hardest time picking.  I ended up with Burke's shot against Kansas, but it's from the sideline and I'm not sure it's even that shot.  UTL was my other pick, but there wasn't a game defining play.  

I only got a couple of things, but I wouldn't be shocked to get more after visiting my inlaws.  I did get Mark Spencer's old Michigan light plate for a light switch if anyone follows back up punters...

I got a framed UTL1 panorama pic.  If you look closely, you can see it's taken seconds after Tree's catch in the corner to win the game.  So sweet!  Still cannot believe we won that game!

Already up in my office -- looks so awesome! GO BLUE!

page-a-day Michigan trivia calendar, and a Michigan Tervis.  I didn't even know WTF a Tervis was until I got it...not too shabby I guess.

I got the Woodson jersey poster. And a bejeweled Michigan cardholder as a joke but I'm going to rock it like a boss.

Actually it'll go to my niece who jut got her temps. Stay off the roads in Ohio.

Also got a Michigan football ornament.

Otherwise kind of light on the Michigan gear.

I love my Michigan gear, and also, I WANT the UM athletic department to have money for things like the awesome stadium renovations, Chrysler arena, and the upgrades to other facilities that are in the works. 

You profit haters make me want to barf.  It takes MONEY to keep our programs up with those of our rivals, and recruits are very aware of facilities.  Remember that most sports are not self-sufficient so we are supporting those as well.

I like Michigan to have money and donations and sell things, but there's a line that Dave Brandon has crossed where he would try and get more money just to have more money.  I get the sense that he only cares about profit and he's not running a corporation anymore.  It's a huge turn off for some of us.

I got my son a number 47 jersey with "JMFR" on the name plate. I expect high fives for him at games next year from MGOBLOGGERS!!


Merry Christmas and Go Blue

All I got M-related was a stylish winter hat

Got some cool swag for the fam, though.

For the mother, a Columbia maize vest

For the brother, winter hat and athletic shorts

For the sister in law, Columbia maize fleece

For the nephew, a U of M Camelbak bottle from UGP

And the best one I think, for my niece, a custom Michigan cheerleader outfit for her American Girl doll.

Boom, Christmas'd

Since we were coming up north for Christmas, got a pair of M winter gloves, a scarf, and a winter hat [toboggan ;) ]. Also got a an old English D tie.

Roll of M duct tape
M climalite hoody
M climalite t shirt
M calendar
M pen set
Bacon's latest book
Related but not M - maize and blue sweats

My favorite gift of them all - a hand made block M from my six year old son.

I am a very loved individual despite my 2013 crankiness!
