Agree with Last Word (for really great cocktails and good atmosphere) and Pileated Brewery on South Industrial for really, really good beer (bring your own food).

But my vote for best cocktails and beer in a cool, quiet environment is "The Bar" at 327 Braun Court in Kerrytown.  Across from Aut Bar and up some stairs.  Best place in town.

I've got an available driveway within a mile of the stadium that could accommodate an RV.  Shoot me an email at quinshomes AT if you'd like to discuss.

My son is already talking in full sentences and it looks like he might be able to skip a year in preschool.  Anyone else have any experience with a situation like this?

12/15/2017 - 1:36am A sloppy, epic orgy

A wild couple hours that were beautiful, horrendous, arousing, cheap, surprising, confusing, and a lot of fun. I remember it with simultaneous fondness and regret.

Sorry, I stand corrected.

That would be 2 and 10.  Sounds about right for the coming season.

06/13/2017 - 11:35am 12 players gone.

12 players gone.  Wow.

Doesn't that make 3 offensive players and 9 defensive players gone?  3 and 9, right?

Her performance in Ordinary People was legit.

Looks like we already beat Virginia Tech tonight!

11/28/2016 - 10:24am Keep it simple.  Our case for

Keep it simple.  Our case for the playoff comes down to two things:

1)  We only have a case if Colorado wins the Pac 12.  If Washington wins, let's look forward to a great bowl game.  

2)  If Colorado wins, the committee will be faced choosing between two teames (Colorado and either of the possible Big Ten champs) who have two losses (like Michigan) and both lost to Michigan in the regular season. 

In that scenario, I think we should be pissed if we don't make it and we should be lobbying the internets hard!

11/28/2016 - 9:34am With you

I, unfortunately, went into this game (and the MSU game and the election) with a huge dose of perspective.  I lost somebody very close to me this fall--someone a little younger than your friend.  I have been walking through life in a surreal haze.  It just doesn't seem possible.  I was bummed this past Saturday about the OSU game but not nearly as much as I would have been in past years. It's just a damn game.  

The one thing I can say is that it's ok for you to not be ok with this.  Sometimes, things hurt and we've got to allow ourselves to feel that hurt.  Also--time helps.  It doesn't make everything ok but it does get better every day.  

 Sending love and good thoughts.

06/16/2016 - 3:28pm GREAT HIRE!!!

I was a student at Ypsi High when Samaha coached there and later worked along side him as a teacher at Huron (I now teach elsewhere).  Samaha is as good as it gets!  An absolute great guy, class guy, hard worker, tenacious coach.  Beilein couldn't have hired a better human being. So proud of him, happy for him, and even happier for UM b-ball.

02/22/2016 - 11:00am Not to laugh at your expense

Not to laugh at your expense but this is funny.  It reminds me of my friend who asked why he always gets ads for vaporizers on YouTube.  I was like, "have you been searching for vaporizers online?"  And he was like, "Yeah, I guess.  Is that why?"

Mark Snyder is a tool.  Non-story.

01/22/2016 - 12:38pm My first impression was:

My first impression was: wow, he's tall. I'd say he's every inch of his 6'5" listing.

01/22/2016 - 11:15am I did not see Partridge or

I did not see Partridge or Bush Sr. but I was arriving as Gary, Singleton, and 2 Paramus coaches (not Partridge) were leaving.  So it's very possible that Bush Sr. and Partridge were there earlier.  Didn't see anyone in head-to-toe UM gear.  

01/22/2016 - 2:12am That was the goal!

Yeah, just tried to let them know that we supported them and that they'd be right at home here.  Tried to stay out of their way for the most part.

So I get how this affects Swenson.  But how does this sit with you, personally?  

01/09/2016 - 7:54pm Do you know what the word "Nauta" means?
12/21/2015 - 3:50pm "Great, great guy"

I've got a good friend who is heavily involved in UMass athletics and is also good friends w/ BC DL coach, Ben Albert.  My friend has personally met Brown many times and when I texted him this morning, he said:

"Unbelievable coach and even better guy.  Just a great, great guy."  

He went on to list all the stats and how Brown was Assistant Coach of the Year but, again, went out of his way to say that Brown is as good as it gets as a person.  

Just to add to the "father figure" talk.

The signs my son and I brought this morning:

"Kirk Cousins washes Tom Brady's car"

"Desmond was Tripped"

I also liked:

"Dantonio thinks this is a sign of disrespect"

10/15/2015 - 5:12am 23-18 Michigan

23-18 Michigan

And let me say (to the football gods and all who deign tempt them) how much I think we are underestimating MSU right now. We have not played a non-spread team yet and I think we are built to dominate spreads. We have not faced a QB of Cook's ability and experience nor a WR corps anything close to MSU's. Finally, we have not faced a D-line of MSU's level and I don't think any of us are fully considering the implications of a heavily pressured (possibly rattled) Rudock. As you can see above, I'm pulling for (and predicting) a UM win but I think we need to slow down the overconfidence train. 6 out of the last 7 dudes.

Go Blue.

24-22, Michigan.  NW goes for two and fails in the final minute?

10/07/2015 - 9:42pm I was getting the wrong

I was getting the wrong videos at different points during the post-chart reading.  Not sure what was going on but there seemed to be a few that didn't match what you were writing about.

09/28/2015 - 7:01pm This post is thread-worthy

because of the source.  If that was just another ESPN talking head I'd say this isn't worthy of a thread.  But to hear JUB, who clearly has direct access to Jim Harbaugh, say that the coach is locked in to UM for the long-term--that's big.  Obviously, it's early but I really enjoy seeing that tweet from Bacon.  

09/27/2015 - 8:33pm That actually made their

That actually made their performance against BYU more impressive in my eye.  They didn't force a turnover and were still that dominant.  

09/03/2015 - 12:12am Too bad they don't have a

Too bad they don't have a backup plan at QB...

08/28/2015 - 4:07pm Just watched his highlight

Just watched his highlight reel.  So excited about him.  So many ways to use a talent like him in Harbaugh's offense (Durkin's defense?).


08/28/2015 - 4:04pm I think that was terrific.

I think that was terrific.  But maybe I'm the absolute target audience for such a promotional stunt.  I remember playing frogger in my freind's garage in 1983.  Damn, those were the days.

Oh yeah, and I won the game, so...yeah.  I'm pretty proud of myself right about now.

07/28/2015 - 1:37pm I like this decision

It was impossible to avoid clumsy execution.  The bottom line is that legends jerseys required changing people's numbers.  How was the next great player supposed to associate his number with legendary status when, in all likelihood, he would be wearing someone else's legendary number by the time he graduated.  

I'm glad this is over and I can go back to assoiciating my favorite players with one number in perpetuity.  



06/22/2015 - 11:00pm Has he added more questions?

Has he added more questions?  I'm finding a few questions after the "two fouls" discussion.

06/02/2015 - 2:47pm I don't know why but this

I don't know why but this just seems like such a good fit.  In fact, I think I hate Brandon a little less now that he is working at a place where he belongs.  

Harbaugh at UM, Brandon at Toys R Us.  Everything in it's right place.  

Good luck, Dave.  

04/23/2015 - 11:55pm I'm just fine with this

Would've liked MSU at night but have no problem not having a night game.  I like the idea that they happen every once in awhile.  But don't need 'em every year.  Michigan football is a big deal no matter what time it happens.  

04/15/2015 - 9:37pm I grew up on Indiana

I grew up on Indiana Basketball and worshipped at the altar of Bobby Knight.  

To this day, I cheer for UM basketball...except when they're playing IU (and was the only person in Ann Arbor happy when Jordan Morgan's putback rimmed out a couple years ago).

There, I said it.

Thanks!  Glad that made a difference for at least one human being today.  I'll sleep well tonight.

Glad I'm not the only one who thinks so.

Fun Fact:  Lazlo from that movie is played by the same guy (Jon Gries) who plays Uncle Rico in Napoleon Dynamite.

Looks like Nik's teammates have been watching Real Genius a few too many times...

04/14/2015 - 10:51am NO!!

I care about this way too much as well, but with a different take.

Legends jerseys have to go.  Get rid of 'em.  Kaput.  

Woodson didn't have earn #2 (except that he was highly touted coming out of high school) and David Terrell didn't need to earn #1 (same reasoning).  

If you want to honor legends, put their numbers on the pressbox/luxury box area.  Period.

Not sure if an editor changed it but it shows up as "ball hawks" when I read the article now.
