06/27/2018 - 6:18am Talking to my therapist…

Talking to my therapist helps.  It's good to have a nonjudgmental person listen to your thoughts and concerns.  When you hit a certain age and a certain point of your career and in your personal life, sometimes that question, "is that all there is?" comes up.  

 

06/23/2018 - 2:12am I don't think that it's all…

I don't think that it's all or nothing like you seem to think it is.  You can criticize Harbaugh for what he's done or not done, the same as criticizing Beilein a few years before, and still love the school and its programs.  

06/13/2018 - 3:16pm I like the 1990’s GeoCities…

I like the 1990’s GeoCities/MySpace look that the transitional site had.

You don't know wives, do you?

05/10/2018 - 3:33am As Usual, We're the Forgotten Generation

I think you guys have forgotten about the Gen X'ers.

03/25/2018 - 1:07pm My sense of Harbaugh is that

My sense of Harbaugh is that he’s not some insecure little milquetoast who would take umbrage at some media member calling Michigan a “basketball school.” He knows he has to improve the team’s performance. You must think he’s so insecure that tweeting out congratulations to a colleague is some sort of huge burden on hiim. From all that we’ve seen and heard and read about Harbaugh, I think it’s part of his DNA to be supportive of fellow Michigan coaches. I’d be more surprised if he didn’t congratulate Beilein publicly.

03/25/2018 - 12:56pm Wow

You must take Twitter and people’s responses to your tweets really seriously. I mean, what else is Harbaugh going to do? Harbaugh has always shown support for other Michigan coaches and sports. Weren’t there sightings of him just showing up at random practices and greeting other players in the past? He’s just being gracious and supporting a fellow U of M coach. That’s what he’s supposed to do. In fact, I’d be more disappointed if he didn’t publicly tweet something in support.

03/19/2018 - 10:38pm Huh

Having one person post “how to get tickets” is not the same as “5000 UM fans descending upon Staples Center looking for tickets”. Your landlord raising your rent 15 percent simply reflects the market conditions that exist. That article you referenced didn’t make the market.

Bain Capital, KKR and the other private equity firms killed Toys R Us.  It had no chance after being saddled with so much debt.  Jim Hackett probably couldn't have revived the chain.

02/26/2018 - 9:45pm Please

Please don't tell me you're a Michigan grad.

01/30/2018 - 1:02am  If it's the same guy doing

 If it's the same guy doing this all the time, meaning that he's on his computer or phone and waiting to pounce to be the first to comment on a thread then that's his pathological problem.  Why do you feel the need to police threads unless someone posts something highly offensive?  Better that he wastes his time getting his jollies by posting on the blog than for him to be driving around in a van looking for victims.  

01/30/2018 - 12:41am Unbelievable

This sounds like retaliation by the MSU administration.  

12/04/2017 - 5:30am The Last Time

The last time I flew Spirit was on a redeye from LAX to DTW.  It was horrible.  No leg room and the guy in front of me kept picking at his scalp and flicking off the flakes of skin on the seat next to him.  I almost threw up.  

12/04/2017 - 5:27am You need

You need to put on all your Michigan gear and post a pic on RCMB 

12/04/2017 - 5:22am The Bowl Game

Sorry to disappoint you, but I think maybe the players might want to play in a post-season bowl game.

Is the swag bag still allowed by the NCAA.  What's the difference between the swag of the Outback Bowl vs the Holiday Bowl?

12/04/2017 - 5:18am Sometimes

It's not like having a nice piece of Kobe or Wagyu but sometimes when you're traveling in parts of the country like East Lansing (because you have to) a place like Outback is probably a safer bet.

 

12/04/2017 - 5:15am Sparty

Schadenfreude about Sparty is fun!

10/11/2017 - 11:29pm The Killers

Killers for honorary captains?

09/18/2017 - 3:03am Yeah

I cannot log in from the old app.  If I log in on via the website, there aren't any problems.  

09/13/2017 - 4:50pm Would make sense

09/13/2017 - 4:42pm Would make sense
09/13/2017 - 4:20pm Of course not.  Why would you

Of course not.  Why would you think where hobbits live is a real place?

09/13/2017 - 4:14pm Or

Or they've been watching too much "Narcos" and think you're friends with Pablo Escobar.

09/13/2017 - 4:11pm What?

You mean Harbaugh and staff didn't have to fly out of the country to recruit Samuels and Gentry?????

09/11/2017 - 10:05pm Why do you assume our fanbase

Why do you assume our fanbase doesn't contain people who are nuts or identify too strongly with the team?

09/10/2017 - 4:07am :-)

It's symbolism.

09/10/2017 - 4:07am :-)

It's symbolism.

09/10/2017 - 3:56am Would have been even better

Had Sparty lost.  But you can't get everything in life.

09/09/2017 - 3:05am Really?

If someone gets lung cancer, you'd be right to ask if he or she has ever smoked.  And the vast majority of the answers to that question would be "yes."  Not everyone who smokes automatically gets lung cancer.  But most people that do get lung cancer have a history of smoking.  

09/06/2017 - 5:08pm For Those Prices

For those prices, Zingerman's should be producing their own artisanal pastrami and meats as some delis do, not buying it from some commercial source.  My opinion is that Zingerman's is really overrated.  Best deli in Ann Arbor?  Maybe.  Among the best in the country?  Not so sure there.  

08/20/2017 - 9:51pm Oregon Beaches

People who rented expensive beach houses in Oregon to see the eclipse, don't really know what the weather is like. Usually foggy/cloudy until it burns off.

08/16/2017 - 8:48pm ?

Are you using a jailbroken iPhone? Mine just gives me a message that it's not supported and a blank screen. The official app is so bad it won't let me log on, but I'm able to do so via my phone browser (Safari).

08/07/2017 - 3:33am I think "Bohemian Rhapsody"

I think "Bohemian Rhapsody" is overrated and sucks and I think "American Pie" is just garbage.  Neil Young sucks too.  His voice sounds like a dying cat trying to sing.

08/07/2017 - 3:28am She had great internet memes

She had great internet memes until we had to ban sexybits on the blog

08/07/2017 - 3:26am How

How are these guilty pleasures or unpopular opinions.

08/07/2017 - 3:22am Yeah

I took my kids and drove with a mini-caravan of SUV's loaded with their friends.  I was the only dad.  The other drivers were these really fit surburban moms...

65000 screaming tweener girls at the stadium.  It was a noise you had to hear to believe.  Fans are super-nice though, so well-behaved.  

08/04/2017 - 12:56am Don't Forget The East Bay

If the fog isn't in and blanketing the City, cross the Bay Bridge and check out Claremont Canyon Regional Preserve in the Oakland Hills.  Nice hike, great views of the City (when the fog isn't there).

08/01/2017 - 8:35pm  I think LA can handle a lot

 I think LA can handle a lot of tourists, the area is used to lots of tourists.  I've not been to an olympics before but I don't think people usually hop from one event to another that often.   I think if you're just interested in the highlights of the competitions, and want to ignore the preliminary heats and rounds, you'd just watch TV anyway.

08/01/2017 - 8:26pm The only people who didn't

The only people who didn't like people who moved to Washington and Oregon were the crusty "get off my lawn" people.  People moved to Washington, mainly Seattle, because of the tech boom due to Microsoft and various tech spinoffs. The jobs they provided were typically well-compensated either with real money or stock options.   I didn't see caravans of old retirees from California in RV's moving to Washington and buying up hip condos because it was significantly cheaper.  Oregon had less of a tech boom, but Intel is still the largest private employer.  Both places still attract a bunch of young people from all over the country who end up making artisanal whatever and open up interesting restaurants and food trucks and produce art that make life more interesting.

05/22/2017 - 12:03pm I think what will happen is

I think what will happen is if you want to drive your car, you will pay a hefty premium versus people who have autonomous vehicles.  

In 2015, 35000 people died in automobile crashes.  That's a lot of carnage.  Sometimes no one's at fault, but the majority of those deaths probably are due to bad decision-making by some human.  

05/22/2017 - 11:56am Red Herring

If you loan your car out and let your loser brother-in-law drive and he goes out, gets drunk, and hits someone, it's your car's insurance that's going to pay.  The insurance is for the car, not the indivdual driver.
