Welcome to MGoBlog Martavious Odoms!

It was easy to miss unless you were looking through old threads (as I was), but Martavious Odoms (http://mgoblog.com/users/martaviousodoms ) joined our MGoCommunity a few days ago.  Here is what Tae had to say in a previous thread regarding the Hope for Pahokee Kickstarter:

"I would like to say that I'm do proud to be a graduate of the university of Michigan. I would like to take this time to thank all of the fans for the amazing support you have given me over the past four years. I also would like to thank everyone for the continued support shown off the field  for hope for pahokee and #eating. It has not been all about giving money but all of the time and support has meant more to me then any of you understand. Again I cannot thank you all enough. 

Martavious Odoms, Tae Odoms,Tae or odoms  whatever you may call me thanks.

I miss my #9 jersey and having on my wing helmet already.

So everyone who hasn't had the chance and has the means to help, you still have time! It's a great cause represented by a true Michigan Man.  http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1021358459/hope-eating-from-garden-to-table-season-one?ref=live 

P.S.  We miss you out there too, Tae!

EDIT:  Tracking the kickstarter, over 700 bucks from 20 pledgers have come in during the two hours since this thread started.  Still a long way to go, though.

What cracks me up is how some loser had so many people dick riding him and pining for his bland common knowledge "insider" posts that anyone with a premium account could have paraphrased that made it such a big deal he was an impostor in the first place. After he quit with the updates and would comment on anything 50 people responded "RDT you gotta go back to posting your updates, PLEASE!" Beyond comical that anybody ever gave two shits in the first place.

Seth or Brian have some pretty good confirmation that it's Odoms if he's posting under that name. Brian has gone through to check emails of breaking news sources and stuff like that, so I think he'd be on top of someone using a recent player's name to post with.

Edit: He got 100 modded points before he posted anything. Yeah, it's definitely him.

Yes, it's him. Odoms and his friend run the H.O.P.E site and kickstarter and I work with his friend. She asked me the other day where Odoms should post online because he wants to start talking about football and knows I'm obsessed with it. I suggested Mgoblog, obviously, but I also let her know to tell him to e-mail Brian to get Mgopoints for, well, being Odoms so he could post topics.

So with 100% certainty I can confirm it's him.

I wonder who will be the next Wolverine to join the blog? I hope its David Dawson. All the hell his tweets have put us through, it is the least he could do.

Oh, and welcome to the MGoBlog Tae!

My guess is that Rand would complain about the lack of bubble screens in Borges' offense, Guevara would go on and on about how Rodriguez got a raw deal, Obama would talk vaguely about the virtues of a balanced offense without specifying what he means, and Ahmedinejad would be a guest blogger from Ohio State.

Jesus: "Experiencing that Alabama game and then coming back to beat Air Force the next week kind of reminded me of something..."

Moses: "Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance that Denard will bring you today."

Satan: "I know we've only got two or three spots left in the 2013 class.  But go ahead, Hoke, sign 10 more guys..."

Rich Rodriguez: "Am I an Arizona Man?  The hell if I know."

Tom Brady: "I don't have time for this.  My wife is Gisele Bundchen."

Bo Schembechler: "What the mind can conceive, mgoblog can achieve."

Woody Hayes: "----" (smashes microphone)

Barack Obama: "Don't let the DO be the enemy of the CA+."

Mahmoud Ahmedinejad: "Die you arrogant scUM."

Neil Armstrong: "It's one 87-yard touchdown run for Denard, one giant leap for Wolverine kind."

Justin Bieber: "And I was like, 'Borges, Borges, ohh..."

Ayn Rand: "Walk ons.  Bah."

Che Guevara: "Let's be realistic: demand the MNC!"

  I wouldn't doubt if it is Odoms. A few weeks ago someone posted a link to HFP website ... something about the EAT tee shirts. I went to the site to buy some things since it is an awesome cause and I get to support somone from the university doing big things. The sites store wasn't working so i sent them an email explaining i got tot he site through a link on mgoblog.


 if i lived anywhere near A2 I'd be all over the paintball or laser tag lol my kids would love it
