07/21/2018 - 11:43pm Thanks for all the great…

Thanks for all the great ideas and comments so far. I’ll say:

Definately Zingerman’s over all. I lived down the street.  It was new then. The only challenge is I have to eat gluten free and my kids are vegan.  Don’t ask but its all for the right reasons. 

Definatly the campus appointment and tour. I assume that will hit all the key spots.  The Diag, the Law Quad and many more   

Definatly need to walk into the Big House. You use to be able to just walk in. Do they still allow that?

Not sure about North Campus.  The engineering school moved up there when I was on campus.  Is it still purgatory?

The river kayaking sounds interesting  l

They are more academic than athletic   

They've been to other parts of Michigan  Just not Ann Arbor   

Very into music  

What is Drakes?

Thanks

I’ve watched the last two Belgium games and Lukaku is amazing and so fun to watch. He is my new favorite player.  This is worth a read.

I see two strategic issues:

1). The “infection” in the NE looks dangerous.  Is that happening because we keep leaving open places for Clemson and then O and W pounce?  That’s seems dangerous if they take the corner and foolish because of the losses at this stage. 

2). Florida looks to be on a wild expansion strategy that is blocking and will block us from accessing new territories unless we attack our alliance.  I say thats tactical on their part without having to attack is.  We will be cornered. 

My comments are all speculation since I have no insight into the alliance strategy or ours.

Then its impossible to get to 2?

06/13/2018 - 1:15pm The best actor is not…

The best actor is not someone that can just be authentic in the moment but who can be authentic with a completely different inner attitude depending on the character.  Imagine someone that could play both Obama and Trump, two guys with completely different subconscious filters for how they experience the world (don’t make this political).  Given that, there are many great Oscar winning actors from Streep to Peter O’Toole that are great at playing characters but are limited in the roles they can play.  There are others who are truly great.

Lewis is clearly one of the greatest. 

I hear Hardy really needs to be watched. He could become the GOAT. 

There is a guy on the #metoo l wont name. 

I personnaly love O’Toole as my favorite but I can’t put him in the GOAT category.  

There are a number of newer actors that have great range compared to 20 years ago.  

The britts then and now tend to produce better actors.

I’m 99% on mobile (like most people) and the app experience is far better than the new responsive experience for mobile. That is true despite the limitations of the old app.  And Mgoblog HD was a far better app. 

On the desktop I do like the new design much better.  This is clearly where the team put their effort.  Unfortunately, most designers and startups these days take a mobile first approach to web experience design.  Just go back to a 5 year old Mary Meeker state of the internet to see why. 

06/13/2018 - 12:43pm Optimized?

The new site…

Optimized?

The new site uses responsive design but the mobile version is far from optimized.  I am mostly on mobile and it’s not very good.  I did venture over to the new website once and that new version is actually quite good.  But the mobile version looks like an after thought.

Responsive design is a cheep way to address all the different screen sizes that are out now but it’s far from optimal.  An Optimized experience can only be executed via app.

Freddy Mercury and Whitney Huston

There is no debate with those two. Everyone else is so limited.

What happened to the risk war. Did Red wipe everyone out?

I love this story. I hope he gets what he deserves.

05/30/2018 - 2:01am Long

Long is not going to get the same love from Lewis or all the other Detroit homers on here but there is plenty of evidence he is the better corner.

But we are splitting hairs here. On any other team, Long, Hill, or Thomas would be the best cornerback.

The Michigan secondary is second to none in 2018.

Florida was/is better running away from Chaos. Facing them head on is suicide.

05/27/2018 - 11:30pm I’d build a team around Magic

As the first pick to build a fantasy Team around, Magic is the one player that makes the entire team better more than any other player. And his greatest playoff game is better than LJ’s too: “ rookie Magic Johnson jumped center, played every position and piled up 42 points, 15 rebounds and seven assists in a 123-107 victory that clinched the championship in game 6 of the NBA finals.” Kareem was injured.

And no matter which other players in the top 10 of all time are selected for his, they win the game. No question about it.

LJ is making a claim for MJ’s GOAT title. He’s not there yet. But for your criteria it’s Magic.

05/27/2018 - 10:22pm 2018 is better everywhere

2018 is better everywhere except WR/TE (the new guys could prove this wrong), the second DL, VIPER, and skill players on special teams.

It’s true. Teams have optimized to the new rules. If fans get board, a rule change to encourage more post ups and drives might happen.

Can you post the scoreboard along with the maps?

Also, what are the other alliances? Who is in the red alliance?

Nebraska got filleted.

That guy has an incredible voice. Thanks for the link.

I don’t get the suits and button down shirts though He needs to go all out and do the full act. Starting with the flamboyant clothes and then he can learn how to embody the adream performance attitude. That would be amazing. He’d increase his audience 10 fold.

05/22/2018 - 1:24am Greatest live concert band

I saw them many times at Cobo Hall in the 70s. By far they were greatest live concert band, and I saw nearly all of the great bands of the seventies and early eighties.

The Freep Fiasco was 10 years ago. There is mostly new staff and it’s a good paper. People need to get over it and stop shooting the messenger.

Especially stop apologizing every time they post a link.

05/14/2018 - 12:01am A couple of Cleveland homers

A couple of Cleveland homers here.

Sure Durant is a stretch. Statistically they are neck and neck. It’s there for a little fun provocation mostly. But watch the Durant vs James youtube video in the MJ vs LJ Goat thread and then weigh in.

05/13/2018 - 1:41pm The details are now out

Witnesses. Lab report. I’m all for innocent until proven guilty but she didn’t press charges because of stress. Back then rape trials were unfair for women and we didn't have cell phones to record video or call the police. Kobe is still guilty even though he bought his way out.

Why does he still have a job?

Why would anyone with a 4.0 go to MSU? Come to think of it, the only kids in my HS that did that had rich daddies with their own business and they just wanted to party through school until they worked for dad.

05/10/2018 - 2:09pm I love Kareem.  The point was

I love Kareem.  The point was sarcastic in that most people on this thread weren't born yet when Kareem was in his prime.  So he's not gonig to get any of the votes he deserved.  My favorite player is Magic.  Unfortunalty his forced retirement takes away from his standing.  We could have had some great MJ vs Magic NBA finals.  Finally, I was a Pistons fan growing up.  So I hated Jordon and I don't own a pair of Nike's.  But I have to admit he is the GOAT.
