Is that Jack Miller at the 1:30 mark? Or is someone else wearing his jersey?
|03/11/2015 - 10:27pm||I met Chris at Sundance in January..||
He and I are among a small group of investors in 2 feature films to date - 'Unexpected' and 'Digging for Fire,' both of which premiered at Sundance in January. I'm friends with his production partner, Peter Gilbert (Hoop Dreams, Prefontaine, At the Death House Door), which is kinda how I got involved.
In person, he's a really nice guy. He was there with his wife, in addition to (former MSU LB) Julian Peterson and his wife too. CW and I bonded over all things Michigan....the turnaround and success of the hoops team, our excitement for HARBAUGH, our love of the school and Detroit, etc. We did not discuss anything else - I know he and Peter have been working on their mutual project, and I did not want to pry.
So I don't know, maybe there are reasons beyond our understanding why things have been awkward between him, the other Fab 5's, and the school. Before we write him off, we should let him tell his story - I think he at least deserves that opportunity.
|03/09/2015 - 7:50pm||Good points||
I agree with that logic. I guess my point was to sample as much as you can. Buy single bottles rather than a 6 pack. Sure, definitely get the essentials (Sierra, Sam, Goose, etc) - but try other lesser known breweries and styles as well. There is a universe of beers beyond your standard grocery store beer aisle.
|03/09/2015 - 7:11pm||I recommend the following||
1. Find a specialty craft beer shop - ideally they'll have big rotating tap list and bottle selection. If they are good, you probably won't recognize over 80% of their inventory as they're always adding one-off, smaller batch kegs. Also the staff generally should be friendly and knowledgeable, and willing to answer your questions. Also check to make sure they clean their tap lines frequently..
2. Variety is the key. Usually these shops will let you buy individual bottles/cans instead of an entire 6 or 12 pack. Pick some random bottles to try. Also invest in a growler or 2. Ask them for samples of what's on tap, and fill up your growlers with what you like.
3. Try to avoid bigger name breweries, even the bigger craft pioneers (Sam, Brooklyn, Goose Island, etc). Nothing against these great breweries, but for the most part you can find their selections year round - probably best to get that stuff if you're having a party and want to accomodate both the beer snobs and the bud light brahs. The best beer IMO is the stuff made locally in small batches - usually hard to find in bottles/cans, but so fresh and delicious off the tap.
4. Drink up, rinse, and repeat.
Hope this helps.
|02/11/2015 - 10:16am||SCSU is just the beginning||
Traditional colleges/universities have outdated business models. They have lost focus on teaching to the majority, and instead are spending exhorbitant amounts on unnecessary faculty/facilities/classes to keep up their reputation. Many schools can't compete in this arms race, as they continually raise tuition each year to cover the costs...so as a result they have no choice but to change or die.
Here in NYC (and other major cities), institutions like Flatiron School, General Assembly, Metis, FullStack Academy, etc are gaining in popularity, with new competitors popping up all the time. They teach relevant courses for today's in-demand tech jobs (web development, data science, product management, etc), at a fraction of the price and time needed for an advanced degree.

I will be volunteering/safari'ing in the Serengeti while the ND and Miami (NTM) games are played. Anyone know of any M-friendly pubs in Arusha?

Isn't she married to Mike Comrie?
|10/26/2012 - 12:38pm||I disagree||
There are many Brooklyn residents like myself that have been eyeing the Islanders situation over the last year or so, and quietly hoping they would move to Barclays. As a die-hard Wings fan, I would attend many games (maybe even season tix), and happily embrace them as my "Eastern Conference" team. There are many young professionals from out of town now living in Brooklyn - I think this demographic, in addition to the existing LIRR fans will be a huge base of support for them. I think the enthusiasm will return in a big way.
|09/24/2012 - 4:36pm||I made the mistake||
of going to all 3 NYC Michigan bars last Saturday.
1st was Brother Jimmy's - I got there around 7:30. It was way too crowded in the bar area and impossible to get beers, so I walked over to Ainsworth, supposedly the new hot sports bar in Grammercy / Union Sq.
2nd Ainsworth - Unfortunately they had velvet ropes and a guy wearing a suit rejecting anyone that wasn't on a reservation list - even if you just wanted to hang out at the bar (WTF?).
3rd Prof Thoms. So I made a mad dash over to Professor Thom's and crammed my way in near the entrance. It was incredibly crowded, though fortunately was able to get beers due to my lucky position near the bar. I left just before halftime and went back to Brooklyn to watch the second half at my local bar.
So I understand that Bro Jimmy's and Prof Thoms are going to be crowded drunk-fests like Duffy's et al - but WTF with Ainsworth? Reservations only? And what happened to the Brooklyn bar? I know Pub One closed, but i'm sure there's more out there that would accomodate us? Argh, maybe i'm just getting too old for this....Also, get off my lawn.

Ah yes, forgot about him - probably b/c i'm getting old.
|08/06/2012 - 11:37am||Brian Cleary||
I haven't been this excited about a freshman walk-on since Mike Kaselitz.
Seriously though, despite the fact that he probably will never see any meaningful action, i've heard good things about him - smart, good size, good all-around kid.. Great to have him aboard - hopefully he can at least lead the scout team and help prepare the defense each week..
|08/02/2012 - 3:41pm||i'm good||
with the twitters. i will be in dallas and like the idea of "WOOOO"ing and "ARGHH"ing from the stands, assuming i can get a signal...
|07/13/2012 - 9:56pm||From Brooklyn||
Smuttynose IPA and a Dickel's neat
Before that, a Six Point Sweet Action and a Founders Red Rye

I was once apprehended by Allen Jefferson of the Detroit Police Department during the summer of 1996...while hanging out in a deserted park late at night drinking beers with some h.s. friends. I still think the fact that I recognized him and started blowing smoke up his ass is the reason we got off so easy - they seemed ready to make an example of us

I look forward to a grit-filled evening...
|04/19/2012 - 1:32pm||you never know...||
maybe the Red Sox and Yankees are playing at Wilpon today??
|03/28/2012 - 12:56pm||we can only hope||
he wears his winged helmet and maize and blue goalie pads!!!

I thought Rancho Cucamonga was a fictitious setting for "Workaholics." Had no idea it was real..

|08/31/2011 - 8:29am||"tremendous"||
|08/31/2011 - 8:14am||Pub One||
is the Brooklyn bar on Front St. I dropped in last Friday to scout out the place, get to know the bartender/waitresses, etc. All in all, good spot with good food and beer selection. The staff is very friendly, and there seems to be plenty of TV's up front - my only concern is the size of the place. Not sure it could hold anywhere near the Bro Jimmy's or Prof Thom's crowds....
|08/26/2011 - 11:14am||Also - the NYC Alumni Club has added||
Pub One in Brooklyn as an official gameday bar. In Dumbo, right under the Brooklyn Bridge. Never been, but hear the food is pretty good.....I hope to see fellow MGoBrooklyners there..
|08/23/2011 - 5:57pm||short shorts =||
|08/14/2011 - 2:07pm||Hmmm||
At least their spelling was correct this time..
|08/03/2011 - 11:47am||yes||
per his FB status last wednesday, "the radio show is no more."
|07/31/2011 - 3:39pm||I think Odoms or Vince Smith should be in the picture||
to really show how big these guys are......for some reason, they all look kinda small w/o a reference point...
|03/25/2011 - 7:44am||first of all,||
i don't see how comments on the Fab 5 can translate to being 'political.' i tend to agree with 'some' of Beckmann's political views, yet i in no way share ANY of his moronic and misinformed opinions on the Fab 5.
i still say fire him though...
|02/12/2011 - 2:27am||just say it...||
|12/10/2010 - 9:36pm||Big fail||

|11/14/2010 - 6:46pm||many thanks||
i'm recently engaged, and my fiance is joining me within a couple months. i know work will be busy, so i'll be coming home later more times than not. and i don't need to be walking distance to the trendy restaurant/bar scene, though i would like to have at least 1-2 decent neighborhood watering holes to call my own..
|11/14/2010 - 5:42pm||that is exactly||
the stuff i'm looking for, thank you very much.
|11/14/2010 - 5:05pm||i just figure||
its a slow fall sunday after a crucial 7th victory, and the board has had enough threads called "OMG FIRE (KEEP) GERG."
Also clearly marked OT, i figure people can skip over it if they like.
|11/09/2010 - 10:56am||As a fellow Blue Devil,||
Best of luck!
|10/19/2010 - 5:36pm||WHOA!!!||
somebody forward that to Pat Forde!
edit: and Danny Hope!
|09/22/2010 - 10:51am||could it be the||

|09/18/2010 - 5:05pm||disagree||
best road jerseys were these:
followed by the all white nikes from 2006, 07...
|08/31/2010 - 5:13pm||Matilda's/Baby Atlas||
is great. I went to a fundraiser party there on Saturday. They have a good tap selection -including Bell's, Half Acre, Two Brothers, and Metropolitan - in addition to one of the best jukeboxes in the city.....Never been on game day, but i assume it would be a decent spot. I'll have to hit it up sometime this fall.
I think Duffy's is ok on game day compared to other weekend nights, but i'm still kinda sour on the place.....maybe its b/c i'm constantly navigating thru the annoying stupid sloppy crowds that congregate outside their front door every night, just to get home..
|08/27/2010 - 7:56pm||youtube||
