David Long: Pure Class.

Good luck to you and thank you.

The two playoff games had 90% and 92% of their capacity?  That alone should tell you there is a problem with the bowls.

Thanks for taking the entire month of December to compile this great info!

Kevin asking Donald Trump (then owner of the Plaza hotel) directions is a cameo.

Do any of the service academies even have fifth year seniors?  They are all four year institutions whose primary purpose is to graduate military officers in four years. 

Edit: Arb Lover has the answer above.  I did find an interesting article on Army and how their numbers are assigned.  Quite interesting reading:

A hidden gem is It Happened on Fifth Avenue.  Made in the 1940's.  Just discovered it about four years ago and now watch it every Christmas.  One of the co-stars is Alan Hale, Jr. - the Skipper from Gilligan's Island.

We're probably a lot better off than the days when Russell Bellomy was taking over in the Nebraska game.

I just checked the AMG Lounge Club (50 yard line/Michigan side).  Tickets start at $352.  Right after the game was announced most were above $500.  They will be less in the coming days.

This has got to be one of the best posts in a long time.  It should be pinned to the top and as person submits their video, their name is crossed off of the list.

It is great seeing his hometown listed as Aberdeen, Scotland!

Gotcha.  Excellent piece overall.

I could be mistaken, but aren't sacks already tabulated into the final numbers for quarterbacks?

That mascot looks like a larger version of my dog's chew toy.

If Nate Silver was correct all the time we would have President Hillary Clinton.  Michigan is a huge draw for TV and as mentioned before would be an ideal pick to be in the CFP.

The last few Terminator movies have been really disappointing.

As a former California expat I thank you for that reminder.  Just adds a bit more sadness to the situation.

I wish him the best.  A great example of why you should choose your college first on academics vs. football playing career.  Even the best athletes, and Grant certainly was that, will spend more time not playing football vs. playing football.

Was it Uncle Bill?  What did Mr. French have to say about this?

Dotting the "i" in lie is great.  Somebody with photoshop skills really needs to make this happen.

Appreciate the comments!  Here is what I asked for.

Mr. Moorman & Mr. Hainer:


Friday afternoon Urban Meyer released the following as part of his response to the firing of Coach Zach Smith from Ohio State:


"Here is the truth: While at the University of Florida, and now at The Ohio State University, I have always followed proper reporting protocols and procedures when I have learned of an incident involving a student-athlete, coach or member of our staff by elevating the issues to the proper channels. And, I did so regarding the Zach Smith incident in 2015. I take that responsibility very seriously and any suggestion to the contrary is simply false."


I would like to request a copy of the "reporting protocol and procedures" utilized by Meyer whether it be in email, handwritten, or other format.  In addition I would like to request an acknowledgement of said "reporting protocol and procedures" from Meyer's superior to whom he made this report. 


Please feel free to contact me via email with any questions or other procedures I need to follow to obtain such information.

I used to write a regular column in Southern California when I lived there so there is still some interest in that type of thing.

When your opponent is digging a hole, hand him a shovel.

I asked to see a copy of what Meyer reported regarding Smith in 2015 and the acknowledgement that his report was filed.  Seems simple.  Probably won't get a copy until somebody at Ohio State makes one up on Monday though!

I did think about signing it "Go Blue" at the end.

It's like if I created a user name for 11 Warriors called Land of Maize and portrayed myself as a Buckeye fan.

I disagree with one of your choices but it is your blog.  I think the old saying applies that if you don't like it start your own blog.  This is one of the best if not the best available and it costs zero to participate.  But you're still wrong on the 5th ward. :)

Same guy.  Great food indeed.

I believe your 5th Ward endorsement should have gone to Ali Ramlawi.  As someone who actively worked in numerous campaigns and had regular interactions with multiple candidates/elected officials when I lived in California, I can say with a certainty that Ali is one of the very few genuine "politicians" out there.  And I use the term politician loosely as Ali is someone who cares about Ann Arbor and if you look at his website he does offer some great ideas for Ann Arbor. 

I don't live in Ann Arbor but I visit enough and graduated from UM so there is still a strong bond to the city and to me, Ali would make a great councilman.

07/15/2018 - 8:31pm Yes, In and Out is so bad…

Yes, In and Out is so bad that they are opening stores in Denver soon and any city would clamor to have them (except for the long lines of traffic that flow into them - because they "overrated").  The owner of the chain could sell franchising that right for billions if she so chooses.  Somebody must be eating them.

07/13/2018 - 4:29pm I would offer them some…

I would offer them some beers - after they're done.  Other than that, if you know the owner of the business tell them you will refer friends/ relatives to them.  That will certainly be appreciated.

I bookmarked the Message Board on my i-Phone so I can go straight to it.  If I want to see the main pages, I then hit the main link.  That's the best way I have found to navigate the main pages I usually look at.

Thanks for your help on the mobile w/o knowing it - see my question below.  By the time I got finished with my post yours was right above mine.  And I would like the sig lines back as well.

Maybe I am doing something wrong or I missed it, but I don't see the Diaries or Message Board on my i-Phone.  Is this an easy fix or still coming?

Tried to remove cache but nothing.  Will try the / trick to see if that works.

This won't be the first time someone makes that mistake unfortunately.

Based on your background I read that as a bad sign he will come back.

It does prove that choice of college goes beyond the slim possiblity of an NFL career and having a good degree as a "fall back" option.  I tend to think Grant Newsome is going to do quite well even if never plays a down of football again though.

This is going to have a big effect I believe. Our company shares about 20 Cubs games 20 rows behind home plate. Won’t be doing that next year due to the tax law change.

05/04/2018 - 5:29pm Try to get your tickets in

Try to get your tickets in the same section and then trade "up" with somebody sitting nearby.  For instance if have tickets in Section 27 and four are in row 40 and four are in row 65, ask the people around you in row 65 if they would like to move down to some better seats.  I say trade "up" because chances are pretty good somebody will switch for better seats but not worse.

I did this last year and had no problems doing so.

Stalin (i.e. the Soviet Union) invaded Poland two weeks after their ally at the time, Germany, invaded Poland.  They also invaded Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia.  They also invaded Finland.  They also took parts of Romania.  Aside from Japan and Germany, no country invaded more neutral countries than the Soviet Union.

I'm in my 50's and love EDM music.  I was listening to BPM on Sirius and they were playing a lot of their songs which was great until I looked and it said Avicii - RIP.  Great talent/too young.
