The Sacrifice....Part II

Submitted by New Carr on December 21st, 2018 at 3:43 AM

As some may recall, I sacrificed my Woodson jersey pre signing day, and our bad juju seems to have turned for the time being.  I bask in the glory of the Dax Hill commit I delivered to my people.

Unfortunately, despite the great martyr that I am, I have nothing left to give. Crouch is still on the board.  Who shall be the next great martyr, one to stand up to the fury of hell that is the BPONE, so we can pull in another 5 star?

Regarding The Game, I believe only our fearless Brian can reverse that juju.  I believe we should call on him every year, prior to the OSU game, to make a sacrifice to the Michigan football hating gods until we beat down that Satanic hoard from down south.

I will do it.  I am going to sacrifice a wonderful family night with my two kids doing Christmas crafts and being generally responsible in order to drink 12 beers and then order some random Jimmy Johns at 10.  I don’t make this sacrifice lightly, but I will do it for this program.

"Something changed that rainy Friday evening before Christmas.  A dream became a reality.  A fairy tale came true.  We may not know exactly what would have happened if ijohnb hadn't slammed a twelve pack of 16 ounce aluminum Budweiser's that night and passed out on the basement loveseat at 10:16 PM.  But we know that it happened, and we know that he meant it.  And for a moment, just one fleeing moment, that is all that mattered."

Lmao. Savage.

Reminds of a while back I wandered through the MGoarchives. Re-read some of those old interviews with members. Always wanted to punch the shit out of my computer when they got to "describing their perfect meal". The pretentious douchefuckery was crippling.

Yeah, I was a fish out of water in that thread.  I can't really pick my very favorite, but "Koegels on grill was pasta salad and beans," "Huge Steak from chain steakhouse with loaded baked" and "Whopper meal large size with a 4 piece" are all in the Top 10.

I could not identify a lot of the foods that were being discussed in that thread.

I think Brian indeed should make a sacrifice - and it is to do an OSU UFR. The Football Gods are punishing his reluctance to chart the game of our sacred enemy by ensuring we lose to them forever. Only by suffering can our dear leader forge a path to victory.

Well hello there fellow delusional MGO Poster! 

I can't wait to tell my wife about these posts. Misery sometimes does love company! She simply could not understand the funk I was in after the Dax de-commit. Glad to know there is family here that understands.

I quit chewing tobacco after the OSU game(havent had it since that awful day). My first child is due to be born in late February and I wanted to resolve myself of all bad habits before he arrived. If i can fight my addiction then surely the Michigan football Gods can fight BPONE for us?

This is the most fun I've had reading the blog, I'm calling it the #lemoneffect. it has the feeling of a yearly tradition. Maybe 2018 will be known in these parts as the year of the lemon. What will 2019 bring? Durian fruit? On second thought, Durian may be saved for a National Championship game... :)

The Lemon Effect, combined with Dax Hill coming back, has scared off the OSU and Sparty trolls for the moment, as well as several of the harshly negative a-holes that may or may not be Michigan fans (several who have welshed and bitched about their losing lemon bets).

Bring it back any time, in my opinion.  This is a hell of lot more fun than wallowing and complaining.

If the wife is still fertile, maybe it's time we take a look at little Denard. A strong Michigan will make for a much happier (second) child.

Brian...pretty obvious what you must do.

1) UFR the OSU game.  Fearless leader must indeed be fearless.

2) Shave the beard, cut the hair.

Be our martyr, be our savior.  The Game is but less than a year away.  It's time.

I went to tell my wife about this the other day and the glaze that came over her eyes was amazing. Then she said "there is something wrong with all of you."

It must be what I look like when she starts talking about the Hallmark Christmas movies she watches.
