06/17/2018 - 9:36am Happy father's day to all…

Happy father's day to all the dads. We've got a bunch of folks coming over. I threw two pork shoulders on the smoker at 2:30 to be ready for lunch. I've got some pork belly burnt ends going as well. Should be a good day!

04/20/2018 - 9:13am Finishing up

Finishing up a work trip to A2. We stayed at the Inn at the Michigan League. Can't recommend that place enough. Reasonable cost, amazing location!

04/13/2018 - 7:41am Next Week

Just found out that I'm going to Ann Arbor for work next week!

03/29/2018 - 10:27am Hotel Bar

I've only taken my family once, but it was during the College World Series and the World Cup. In both cases the bar in our hotel was more than happy to turn them on. We were in the Bay Lake Towers.

I have two grad degrees from UVA, but somehow I'm not mad. UVA completely on brand tonight.

He's easy to cheer for. Makes us all believe we could be out there

03/10/2018 - 3:36pm We'll be there

Section 102 row three. We'll get to see the Michigan attack twice, but will be right next to the Ohio state bench. I'm interested to see the crowd tonight. Nationwide is far enough from campus to discourage some students to attend.
All of the maize and blue of Columbus should show up, plenty of tickets left.

03/08/2018 - 10:27am Let's make Nationwide Maize and Blue

The game is at Nationwide which is home to the Blue Jackets.  From what I can tell they are only selling tickets for 14 or 15 of the lower bowl sections.  Of those, 1/2 to 2/3s of the tickets are sold.  This is a great opportunity to make a big maize and blue showing in Columbus.

We'll be in section 102 row 3.

fuck the bullshit. Go blue, crush state

09/06/2017 - 6:28pm The hustle and pursuit by

The hustle and pursuit by Marshall is awesome.  It almost looks like he thinks about slowing down, then decides to finish the play.  I love seeing him on the field and producing!

06/13/2017 - 10:38am I took my six year old this

I took my six year old this year and it was just fine.  We both wore Michigan gear and didn't hear any grief at all.  In fact, a group of students in front of us had a pretty fun interaction with my daughter who had been chearing loudly all game.  It was pleasant banter and they totally understood that they were dealing with a kid.  Having recently moved to the  Columbus area and sporting M gear I have not had any problems.  There are horror stories, but I haven't experienced them.  Even this year's football game was fine for friends and family.

It isn't a great hockey atmosphere and most of the fans seemed to be fans of OSU or fans of hockey, but not specifically OSU hockey fans.

We'll definitely be there for those games and I'll be bringing my younger kid too.

Tickets can be had for next to nothing and you can easily sit in any section that you want.

Feel free to ask more questions.

you must live very close to me...I'm a half mile from South too.

08/11/2016 - 2:28pm I work in public education,

I work in public education, and have even moved to a different state and found a job.  I agree tha the most desireable places probably won't even look at her without an in-state license, or proof of the ability to get one right away.

From what I gathered from your post her degrees are Biology and not biology education degrees.  She should talk to different universities as many have different requirements and timeframes to complete the degrees.  It would be more helpful to have the degree and license in hand.

That said, there are certainly places that have trouble filling some science positions.  I have not worked in Michigan, but other states have alternative paths to licensure for someone in your wife's situation.  Michigan's is called MARITC.  

I hope this helps!

 

Edit: For hard to fill positions folks can get temporary licensure with one or two years to complete their degrees.  It varies by state.

That movie is a classic. The ducky boys were crazy!

01/16/2016 - 1:42pm I've got two kids, age 2 and 5. It is a huge game

I've got two kids, age 2 and 5. It is a huge game changer, but your life isn't over. We've continued to have great lives and have found fun things we can do that includes them.
Make sure you also find time to spend as a couple.
My last and most important unsolicited advice...Don't take unsolicited advice about raising kids. Everybody is a fucking expert. Once you get the basics down, you'll know what's right for your family.
Having kids is awesome, enjoy!

09/27/2015 - 4:05pm Heading up there on Saturday

Heading up there on Saturday with my wife.  Sitting in section 17.  We are staying within walking distance, but would love to find a good tailgate to join!

07/30/2015 - 9:09am Bought two in section 17 last

Bought two in section 17 last night.  There weren't many left together in the stadium, so we took advice from other threads and went for the top of the lower bowl.  Looking forward to it.  As it gets closer we should set up an mgomeetup!

07/14/2015 - 11:15pm I agree with both of those.

I agree with both of those.  Riverside is nothing special, but I love it.  Restaurant wise, aside from other restaurants named throughout this thread I'd add Continental Divide, Bluegrass Grill (breakfast), our farmer's markets on Wednesdays and Saturdays usually have great food.

Checking out the grounds, since UVA is too cool to have a campus, is cool for visitors.

Nelson County, just south has great hiking, breweries and wineries.  Blue mountain brewery has a great place to hang out outside.  

There is always tons of live music going on as well.

 

04/10/2015 - 10:50am I loved the fact that Brian

I loved the fact that Brian referenced the taco sketch from The State.  I loved the podcast, but this is by far the highlight to me!

02/22/2015 - 3:13pm It's great to see them

It's great to see them leaving everything out there on the court.  Always nice to win games you are supposed to win!

02/05/2015 - 7:57pm As many others have said, I

As many others have said, I feel bad for the kid.  While he felt mislead my Michigan, in the end he was mislead by OSU.  I hope everything works out for him and that he has great success.... with the exception of the last regular season game of every season.  Go Blue.

01/03/2015 - 11:28pm Way to represent some

Way to represent some Charlottesville beer.  Champion is about a 1/4 mile from my house.  Cool little spot, plus they put out some great beers.  I hope you checked out some of the other breweries in the area.

There is a place that makes mezcal old fashioneds near my house.  They are surprisingly good

Tequila again tonight.  I got a few nice bottles of bourbon for Christmas, usually my drink of choice, but I'm on a tequila run lately.

Most people will disagree with me, but that is my favorite year round Great Lakes beer.

From live action that didn't look like much of a foul, but I'll take it!

01/03/2015 - 3:26pm I saw that article too.  If

I saw that article too.  If he's a great recruiter and Harbaugh wants him... sounds good to me.  Drevno is supposed to be an amazing TE coach as well.  I'd expect him to work with that position group as well.

Drinking Espolon tequila.  Things are looking up.

I really wanted both of those threes to go down.  A four point play would have been too perfect.  Keep things rolling Austin!

12/19/2014 - 9:29pm Not bad for that price point.

Not bad for that price point.  I am always pushing Eagle Rare for the price.  $50 for a half gallon.  My favorite utility bourbon.

I'm drinking bourbon!

My three year old dropped the f-bomb when she dropped a bunch of stuff once.  Nobody believed me that she probably learned it from my wife.

09/05/2014 - 3:26pm Congrats.  I have two little

Congrats.  I have two little ones and it is awesome!  Don't get me wrong, I still enjoy some alone time, but it was a great positive change to my life

My unsolicited advice for all new parents is... don't take unsolicited parenting advice.  Everybody thinks what they do is the best thing, but you have to figure out what works for you and your family.

Congrats again and Go Blue!

What redshirts have been burned?  So far I've seen Mone, Peppers and Cole.  Anyone else?

I knew a girl growing up who smelled like she wore hot dog cologne.  No joke or pun intended.  She just always smelled like hot dogs.

This Penn State can't most end quickly enough.  I would like to see them pull it out.  They just need to do it quickly.

This was thorough and I appreciate all of your hard work.  I can't wait for the kickoff tomorrow.  I have high hopes for this season.  Go blue!

It's the right move by the program. That behavior is unacceptable in any part of life. That said... I hope York gets a second chance somewhere and makes the most of it. Play some football, but more importantly get a degree.
