Avatar chosen because I like the pic 

12/26/2018 - 7:06am I didn’t remember the exact…

I didn’t remember the exact price per pack, but apparently I spent a lot more quarters than I thought. When I sorted through the cards several years ago I organized them by number in storage boxes sized for the cards. I believe I have 5 or 6 complete sets ( #1 - #660) and thousands of other cards that aren’t complete sets. Fortunately, I have about a dozen Yount cards and almost as many Brett cards set aside. Hank Aaron cards as well. I shared the gum with my sister, and yes, it was nasty. 

12/25/2018 - 10:22pm I have thousands of 1975…

I have thousands of 1975 Topps mini baseball cards. That year they printed normal size cards and cards that are about 70% (?) of the normal size. The mini cards were only sold in a few states, Michigan being one. If my memory is correct, the George Brett and Robin Yount rookie cards are the most valuable.  There’s others like Nolan Ryan that also had a decent price. Years ago I sorted them and put the valuable cards into individual holders.  I believe they sold for five cents a pack back then, with a piece of bubble gum.  I also have a few gems like a Lew Alcindor rookie basketball card plus a couple others. They’re all packed away neatly in storage containers now lol.

Revenge Tour stop 4!

It’s happening!

Bang me and screw the cooler poopers!

Absolutely this!

mGrowOld you just nailed it on the head for both OSU and MSU. The next several years should be fantastic for Michigan alums and fans.

Thank God for the…

Bang me! 

Thank God for the record option on Direct TV. I’ll be unable to watch the game live until around 8:30pm. Sometimes work stuff is a PitA. I suspect the good guys will have a decent lead by then. 

Go Blue and to hell with Notre Dame!!

05/31/2018 - 10:02am Predictions

Anyone care to offer a prediction on next year’s MBB record? I hope I didn’t miss the thread on this...

05/18/2018 - 10:11pm I apologize

I didn’t see the pic request until it was too late. Next time I’ll get photo evidence lol.

Is it possible to post pics on here from my phone? I don’t go to the full site on my PC very often

Make Michigan Great Again (football)

05/15/2018 - 11:56pm I had

I had the MLB Network on when the Indians hit the early grand slam. Wrote this game off as a loss immediately. As the night went along I saw score updates. Watched them take the lead on the bases loaded walk. I’m still not sure if this game says more about Detroit or Cleveland though. Hopefully the young guys keep plugging along. Having the Tigers do moderately well will help the summer move along until football returns.

05/04/2018 - 4:22pm An agenda

Perhaps? Throw a little shade toward Ann Arbor in an attempt to equalize the negative coverage of events in East Landfill...a lame attempt at that, however

05/04/2018 - 3:48pm So True

As in most cases, this one indeed, journalists write their story(ies) trying to sensationalize things they’re rarely experts about. I totally agree, a junior in RSB likely knows much more than the person slinging accusations at the FP. Sadly, it seems trying to equate successful asset management with decades of sexual assaults is the best the FP has to offer.

04/13/2018 - 8:29am Bang me

Living in the “ice belt” for the storm of the century, of the year, this weekend. Could be a boring weekend...or maybe not.

04/02/2018 - 7:14pm This Topic

This is unreal. I have a similar situation. Without details. One is alive and one just called me with a diagnosis. No matter what happens in San Antonio tonight, what happens in Ann Arbor trumps it by infinity.

Looks like Michigan has San Antonio covered. Monday should be fun!

Afternoon will be spent with a huge group doing a scavenger hunt. Then a bite to eat and continued drinking well into the night celebrating a Final Four birth!

Go Blue!

03/21/2018 - 3:05pm Bingo

You hit the nail on the head. Most sports journalists (save a few) don’t know squat about intricacies of the sports they cover. Write an article highlighting a few key moments in the game and do a few interviews to mingle some quotes in the story.

03/20/2018 - 6:56pm He just tweeted

He just tweeted about a QB transferring to WSU instead of ‘Bama

03/09/2018 - 3:51am Bang Me!

Wouldn’t a seeding position higher than Sparty be wonderful after the bowl season positioning? I still have Sparty slappies whining about that. It would cause a meltdown of epic proportions! Here’s to San Antonio!

02/24/2018 - 2:16pm Great game

I’m off to work a QDMA banquet. Plenty of Sparty slappies will be there. Should be a fun night lol

02/19/2018 - 1:25am On my phone

I have no idea how to post cool muppet stuff from my phone, but this weekend was great to experience!

Go Blue Forever!

02/09/2018 - 5:10pm Two things I learned

Two things that stuck with me most from my time in B-School 1) Buy the companies making/selling axes and picks, not those mining for gold (singles VS home runs) 2) Look at indices charts over time (6-month, 1-year, 2-year, etc) as day to day gyrations can drive you crazy. Steady as she goes with the right amount of risk included

02/03/2018 - 4:35pm Good Lord

Free Throw misses, awful 3-PT attempts. Let’s just seal it here guys!!

02/03/2018 - 2:30pm Duke and Kansas

Both Duke and Kansas already lost to big underdogs today. Let’s win easily!

Go Blue!!

01/26/2018 - 12:36pm I agree

Emails and texts are traceable. Spoken words, however, will be much more difficult to prove. Whether spoken face to face, in phone conversations, etc. I’m certain more people knew than simply emails and texts will reveal

01/26/2018 - 11:58am When do

When do the prosecutions start? This has potential to be far reaching into the administration and athletic department. Proving who knew what may be difficult, but people knew!!

01/13/2018 - 3:07pm Missing

I haven’t heard from any of my Sparty friends lol. Some are really good people, but it’s much better not having to hear about losing to them!

#GoBlue!

01/04/2018 - 2:43pm You’re right Wendy

I’ve spent my career managing manufacturing facilities. Many female employees in each. I’ve always been careful and emphasized this with mid level managers also. Better safe than have any chance of something being misunderstood

12/30/2017 - 9:05am Thank You

for the update. I was wondering, but too busy/lazy to do the research myself

12/28/2017 - 12:07am That Arizona TD

Pretty well designed passing play. It’d be fun to see Michigan do some things as nicely designed with all the weapons we have.

12/25/2017 - 1:14pm ChadTough

Maybe a reference here....

12/25/2017 - 10:52am Christmas Eve

We do the wife’s family every Christmas Eve. It’s actually pretty nice. Brother in law built a big heated pole barn a few years ago so it’s comfy and there’s enough room to stay away from the few idiots. Today is immediate family. Merry Christmas and Go Blue!

12/24/2017 - 9:45pm Wife’s Family

I play along. Multiple State grads here. They know the truth lol. If I pointed anything out to them I’d be a jerk. U M = Winning

I had a bottle earmarked for the gathering with the wife’s family tomorrow. My weakness prevailed and I’m enjoying a glass on the rocks right now

Been in the deer blind since 6:45. Light snow. Gorgeous winter morning! Bang me and, as always, Go Blue!

12/09/2017 - 10:51am Rooting interest

While I have a handful of friends who are Navy veterans, my father in law was in the Army for 26 years. Other family members are current and former Army soldiers as well. Go Army!

11/25/2017 - 10:21am Precisely

Thanks for your support

11/25/2017 - 9:49am Emphasis on High

I was trying to be comical, seeing how so many people here like comedy and drinking, etc. I’ll do better next time, I promise
