Yes, approximately nothing.  I mostly read articles on the front page, so I guess I bring some add revenue.  Occasionally I like to read the board and find it mildly amusing to see folks try to identify Maizen's alternative accounts or give you a hard time about not actually being an insider.  And you've got to admit, your original comment here reads a lot like a guy who wants to be seen as an insider.  For the record, though, I believe you do actually have some inside knowledge, and I don't expect you to be totally correct all the time to prove you have inside knowledge.  I appreciate your contributions to the blog.  On this one occasion I happened to feel like chiming in with a little teasing about your insider status.  Hopefully this had not detracted too much from the pleasantness of your evening.  I wish you well, umbig11

I have been regretting not buying any tickets for the upcoming season to go with my nine year old son.  This is our last year in Ann Arbor, so I really want to take him to another game while it's convenient.  I would be very happy to make the requested donation.  Thanks for posting!

08/16/2018 - 10:47pm So sorry to hear about your…

So sorry to hear about your friend.  I can understand your desire to see him, and I can understand his desire to not be seen.  Ultimately, the visit definitely need to be for your friend and not for you.  I would think you will never regret being there for your friend in the way he wants you to be there--physically, text, whatever.

With that said, maybe your friend doesn't want to inconvenience you by requiring you too travel, take time off work, etc.  What if you go to Miami without the expectation to see him?  Remove the barrier of distance and let him know you are there if he wants to see you.  Emphasize you are not trying to force a face to face meeting, but that it's readily available if he wants it.  Express your love and sincere desire to support him in the way he wants to be supported.  He may decide he really wants to see you once you're there.  He may really want to not be seen.  Either way, I would think he would feel love from you, which is ultimately what you're trying to do.

I wish you peace during this challenging time.

Thought this was going to be a log (or "diary") of the Stephen Herron journey.  I know I can't remember all the ups and downs, is he in is he out twists and turns of the story.  I thought somebody else had documented it and posted it in such a way as to merit a diary rather than a common board post.  Alas...

because she is a woman, she had the right to tell us about her experience as a woman. you have a lot more to gain by suspending disbelief and actually listening to someone than by immediately assuming your experience and interpretation is correct. repeat after me, "gaslighting people who experience prejudice perpetrates prejudice."

Yes, I have always been a Giants fan.

One thing I love about baseball is that the culture generally supports historic accomplishments of opposing players.  If the pitcher of the visiting team has a no-hitter in the 9th, allegiances basically go out the window and everyone is just a baseball fan.

my 4 year old walked into a street with a 45 mile per hour speed limit a few weeks ago. thankfully the alert driver stopped and he was not hurt. I still shudder when I think about him. I can't imagine the devestation of having a child pass away, and I have no idea how i would find peace.

our defense is successful, so the crowd diminishes that success by claiming the other team sucks? just stick to praising our guys for doing well, imo

I could not tell you this man's name.  I'm pretty sure it's not Mork, but it's a toss up between Mike and Mark.  Similarly, it's a toss-up between Dantoni and Dantonio.

07/15/2017 - 7:45pm I'll agree with that

I've been to about a dozen holy war games, and I've now been to OSU vs. Michigan in the big house. lots more cursing and alcohol for The Game. lots more genuine dislike and loathing at the holy war. my opinion is that the religious appreciate introduces a nastiness that cannot exist in another rivalry

I had a pork loin in a maple brine overnight, and I'm barbequing it all day with some hickory chips. tending the fire and watching the meat process toward doneness while I read and watch baseball and play catch with my kids. I've been looking forward to this day for a while. happy forth, and be safe
