Have had a truck since 2004...still have it actually.  Can't imagine not having a truck around.  Bought a Yukon in 2018, reluctantly agree with the "tall station wagon" faux wood paneling though.  The wife drives an accursed minivan.... it's getting on in years and miles, not to mention my kids have laid waste to the interior.  Permanently embedded food is only the start of it.  Probably have to get another minivan soon.  If I could talk my wife into driving the Yukon I'd consider the Jeep Gladiator.  Looks pretty cool, keep a truck around since my '04 probably isn't long for this world.

As far as "fun and handling" go, I don't really look at new cars for that.  Can't afford the real good stuff, and I think older cars have more character and are more fun anyway.  Wouldn't mind finding a good E46 M3.

Shit.  Scratch that "OT".

I was sitting 6 rows behind the Penn State bench and didn't even notice the shove.  I bet if Chambers was winning more games this suspension wouldn't have happened.

Bought a student section seat.  Will yell "GET OFF MY LAWN" during timeouts.

" I know we would have beaten Nebraska in '97"   FIFY

01/02/2019 - 11:03am ..."and I'm not saying they…

..."and I'm not saying they ga[ve up, but]...."

My guess.

12/30/2018 - 5:07pm For some reason I've been…

For some reason I've been walking around thinking Z was a senior.  Thank you God!

12/28/2018 - 6:04pm Meaningless....?  I care…

Meaningless....?  I care about the guys wearing the uniform tomorrow.  I care about the seniors who are playing their last game, some of them last game ever.  I care about 11 wins being better than 10.  I care about seeing guys who will be playing next year.  Yeah I'd rather not be playing Florida again, but that really is beside the point.  Anyone who thinks it's meaningless...I'd say get out of your own head, and support the team you're supposedly a fan of.  Making this season all about just the OSU game is short sighted.  Juvenile.  Loser mentality.  Stop letting that horrifying game own you. 

12/28/2018 - 6:00pm I care about the guys…

Harbs.  Gotta love the guy.  "I have no idea what he's talking about right now."  Awesome.

12/15/2018 - 9:32pm Nah.  You're alone.

Nah.  You're alone.

12/15/2018 - 9:29pm The only solution I can…

The only solution I can think of is for me to stop caring as much, and I hate it.

Or maybe I could stop caring as much about the players that are sitting out, and care about the ones still on the team.  Still hate it, but I hate it a lot less.  I don't blame them for their choice.  Thank you for being on the team, best of luck in the NFL, but now you're taking yourself off. 

We could focus on the guys who are still on the team. 

12/06/2018 - 3:41pm Yes.  Watch when I can,…

Watch Michigan hockey when I can, listen when I can't.  Like others, wish more games were on TV.  But I can't say I follow it like I follow Michigan FB and BB.  Not because less's just easier to get FB and BB information.

Thanks for posting.  Nice to see good news on this front for a change.

12/04/2018 - 11:22pm I understand benching Z for…

I understand benching Z for a bit after those bricks late, but I thought Beilein maybe kept him down a couple minutes too long.  

Thought for sure that bank 3 ball was gonna drop.

This is a completely rational response.  I wish I could share it.  I want to beat that bastard, and ideally beat him both home and away.  Ain't gonna happen now though.

12/02/2018 - 2:40pm Thank you! 

I get not…

Thank you! 

I get not wanting UCF 2 years in a row.  I wouldn't want to see them one year in a row.  

I guess that overrides seeing Florida/Michigan over and over.  And over.

12/02/2018 - 2:30pm Can someone remind me why it…

Can someone remind me why it has to be Florida, and can't be LSU?  I read it on here somewhere but I can't find it again.

12/02/2018 - 2:19pm Maybe he just wants to see…

Maybe he just wants to see Warde Manuel's balls.

Would like to actually beat the bastard before he goes anyway.

I liked that turnaround 3 Matthews had too to stop that NC run late.

A November win, but dang that was nice!

To hell with the Yankees.  And Boston.  And Ohio State.  And Notre Dame.

10/11/2018 - 8:17pm Might be worth mentioning…

Might be worth mentioning that you have to be off the U of M golf course 2 hours after the game.  Could be important to some.

08/31/2018 - 1:46pm The whole shame vs…

The whole shame vs. exaltation thing I guess.

08/31/2018 - 12:21pm My wife and I will be there…

My wife and I will be there.  Second game at South Bend, last one was 2006.  Here's to that history repeating itself!

08/31/2018 - 10:58am And he keeps doing it.

And he keeps doing it over and over.

08/31/2018 - 10:03am Section 118, I hollar at you…

Section 118, I'll hollar at you from the opposite end!


08/09/2018 - 12:41am I don't mind getting beat up…

I don't mind getting beat up, but hell doesn't anyone read the user tags?   I actually spelled the word sarcasm out.  Maybe should have used /s.

Well yeah, in fairness I don't read the user tags either.  

My points don't go down, but I feel the dong punches. 7 years on the board and I knew this would make the sharks circle, so I deserve it.  Feel the imaginary hate flow through me to the Dark Side.

Our moderators who art in Ann Arbor, or connected thereto via the interwebs

Hallowed be thy keystrokes

And if I be bolivia'd before I wake

I pray the Ghost of Tom Harmon thy muse to take

Damn formatting, amen

Yeah it's no good when you have to explain it.

08/08/2018 - 11:08pm Fair enough. 

I wonder what…

Fair enough. 

I wonder what the exchange rate is these days, USD to Boliviano?

08/08/2018 - 10:58pm HA!  Dang, no one can take a…

HA!  Dang, no one can take a joke around here these days.

I guess Billy Blanks is too far in the way back machine for you folks.  Damn my typo on the possessive though.

08/08/2018 - 12:16pm Sometimes I do not do that…

Sometimes I do not do that thing, but sometimes I do.  Sometimes it is fun.  Sometimes not so much.

08/08/2018 - 12:09pm Not surprised there's an…

Not surprised there's an official name for it.  I can even understand using that in some situations.  This situation though....disregard what is real, figure out what is most publicly acceptable, spin as needed.  I guess that's public life in general though. 

08/08/2018 - 9:55am Sometimes I wonder if this…

Sometimes I wonder if this kind of information gets pushed "out there" just to test the waters and see what the public reaction would be to a given course of action.  Use someone semi-creditable (McElroy)...float out a scenario through "sources"....see what the reaction and rumblings are....adjust course accordingly. 

08/02/2018 - 12:16pm Prayers for you and your…

Prayers for you and your family Ace.  Props to Brian for supporting you 100%.  The right thing is the right thing.  

08/01/2018 - 12:26pm Now that's in my head. …

Now that's in my head.  Curse you, your hippy username, and your icon photo edit that makes Don Brown look like Wilford Brimley!

Agggghh...I can see this happening.  Some men just want to watch the world burn.

08/01/2018 - 12:19pm My wife and I went to the ND…

My wife and I went to the ND game in 2006 the year before we were married.  Stomped Brady Quinn and that damn leprechaun 47-21.  Prescott Burgess with the pick 6 early!  "It's great to be a Michigan Wolverine" echoed on their concourse... hard to put in words how awesome that was.

My wife got me tickets to this year's game for Fathers Day.  We're gonna be singing it again!  This D is gonna put Wimbush's head on a spike.

07/31/2018 - 3:17pm E9 BMWs, BMW 507, mid 60s…

E9 BMWs, BMW 507, mid 60s Bill Thomas Cheetah, De Tomaso Mangusta, Ferrari 250 all variants.  I thought the G8 was pretty cool before they put Pontiac down for the dirt nap.  GM has the Malibu, but it is completely soul-less.  A throwback '66/'67 Chevelle Malibu on the other hand...

Oh wait.....I need to be able to afford to buy it in a heartbeat?  Uh... Chevy Chevette (The Shove It)


07/30/2018 - 4:43pm Maybe it's just really hard…

Maybe it's just really hard to tell when Harbaugh is joking.  I've done that before...say something off the wall, stone cold serious face.  Never go back and say you were just kidding.  People don't know how to take it, unless they know you real well. 

07/28/2018 - 2:08pm +1 for rating PUD as…

+1 for rating PUD as underrated.

07/17/2018 - 4:32pm I don't really name cars,…

I don't really name cars, but I do refer to them as "she".  Boats and planes too... all "she".   Not really sure why.

My kids, however, like names.  Most are pretty generic... The Blue Truck, That Shitbox wait that's me on the van.  So I guess I do name vehicles, but only when profanity helps me deal with whatever is currently happening with said vehicle. 

We got a Yukon a couple months ago.  My sister has a Tahoe...they call it Taco.  So they started calling the Yukon Yucko.  Taco and Yucko.  My oldest son sometimes refers to the Yukon as the Chariot.  Smoother ride though, and more horses.

To someone named Charles:  "What's up Chuck?"

Interrupt while they answer "It's puke!"

I did this to a guy daily, sometimes hourly, at a job the summer before college.  Probably deserved a beat down by aforementioned Charles.

Strike outs and HRs.  Live by the sword, die by the sword.

This maneuver is worthy of nomination for the Bharat Ratna.

06/27/2018 - 11:17am Well said.

Well said.
