I'll keep this brief since it's not interesting enough for a diary and I'd prefer it to disappear in a day. On Monday I posted if anyone wanted a free Bball ticket and dinner beforehand in the Jack Roth Club for the Event Team appreciation dinner. I got two takers and said yes to the one who replied to my post first before I checked my email. At this point trepidation set in because who was this random poster that I would spend an hour over dinner with who had less than 10 pts since joining the site in 2014. I've been to over a dozen MGoGettogethers and I might want to share a beer with maybe half of the attendees (Brian might not make the cut).
Mr. MGoGMo and I turned out to have a lot in common. He and his wife both went to UofM and met there in the late '80's, my wife and I did the same in the early '80's. His son is a current student here and his daughter will be applying here soon. My son and daughter are both graduates of Michigan. We walk into the suites and the first athletic staffer we see he knows personally (this was probably the only staffer there that I didn't know). He used to do TV work at the football games for a Flint station and this last season helped out the Amazon crew on their documentary. I tried to regale him with my stories of working the football camps last summer and meeting half the coaches and maybe a quarter of the team. It was a better dinner than my senior prom to be honest. I had to leave early to usher the NU game but he made it a point to track me down at halftime at sec. 104 and to thank me again.
Let the snark begin...no we didn't get a room, no bromance...It's not MSU related nor has anything to do with recruiting. Go Blue!
