Not that there is anything wrong with that...

07/16/2018 - 11:10pm UTL and Jordan Poole, is it…

UTL and Jordan Poole, is it wrong to want more?

03/23/2018 - 9:52am After all the crap I got

After all the crap I got about viewing options in Trinidad, my flight canceled and I watched the game sitting on my couch...

03/19/2018 - 1:34pm Thanks, checking directv

Thanks, checking directv Trinidad, TBS is offered at one of the lower level plans.

03/19/2018 - 12:59pm I was there a few months ago.

I was there a few months ago. The bartender at the RAF club asked her friend , a police officer, to escort us down to the avenue for doubles. I took that as a bad sign.

03/19/2018 - 12:51pm Hey, if I find out how to

Hey, if I find out how to watch the game live they can send me to Bolivia... It will have been worth the trip.

03/19/2018 - 12:45pm POS

Ok, didn't anticipate the assumptions..
So I'm in Trinidad for work. There is a travel advisory for Trinidad, not the best place to vacation these days. And with all due respect to any readers from the islands, there is a reason the airport code is POS.

My concern for finding the game is based on the network being available. We got TBS. I have no idea how to set up a VPN, I'd appreciate recommendations on how to get that set up...

09/12/2017 - 9:06pm Private aircraft are custom aircraft

And you can configure them anyway you like.  Even the lowly Citation I can be outfitted for absolute comfort.  But then the utility of said aircraft is diminished...  I guess the point would be that while many of us have been privileged to fly on one, none of us have been on all.  Not all modes of private transportation are created equal.

05/02/2017 - 7:32pm Ridiculous

If you are going to hold anyone accountable for actions prior to the draft then you should hold everyone accountable for actions prior to the draft. The NFL should not be acting as jurors; let the legal system play out and make their determinations based upon the findings NOT the uniformed hysteria of the casual observer.

11/14/2016 - 8:02pm Seemed noteworthy...

Any press is good press, no?

08/05/2016 - 5:50pm Sorry to hear

Similar history with my younger brother. I remember the 97 season, I was living in Hawaii with my brother back in Rochester. Quite the impressive phone log as we called each other after every big play and spent just about every 4th quarter on the phone. He passed in 1999 but is always in my thoughts on football Saturday's. Somehow his memory burns brighter after the wins, I like to think he was too busy to check in on those other days.

12/16/2015 - 8:20pm The last Bowl

Vs the Gators ticket prices stayed strong up to kick off. My son and I managed to find some face value tickets in the upper level day of game. You will be able to find tickets but don't count on half price.

08/30/2015 - 11:34pm FYI

Was there last week, sign at the stadium train stop stating your ticket to the game gives you a free ride... They are also running extra trains for the game.

08/30/2015 - 8:29pm Coming out of Long Beach

I'm the Captain so odds of being on time are better than average. Did a trial run last week, if the Radisson driver is on time I might make it. If not, Squatters has a decent selection of beer...

08/30/2015 - 7:26pm Arriving ticketless

Flight doesn't land till 5:10 pm so I'm going to just try my luck with the scalpers...

12/30/2014 - 4:45am Uh

No, he did not... Not that my 320 type or several thousand hours in it has anything to do with my opinion \s

09/22/2014 - 10:20pm What?

I had no idea I was limited to only one up vote per post...
You either embrace all that Michigan football stands for or you don't. If the win loss record means more than the rest then no, you are not what I would consider a Michigan man. MSU could use a few 'good' men...

09/20/2014 - 7:50pm Jdog

I will send you my email address...

09/20/2014 - 7:42pm I'm embarrassed

Not because I am a fan of Michigan but rather by the fans of Michigan.

The game is far from over, the season even further. There is a Michigan home in Florida in which cold beer will flow, meat will be smoked and football will be watched for another 4 months. I've never suffered a losing season because I've never suffered a season without Michigan football.

Am I happy with OUR teams performance? No. But it's MY team and they will never hear my criticism until the game is over.

08/27/2014 - 1:34am You can add my name

I do quite a bit of traveling and would gladly accept the challenge of visiting as many of these fine establishments as my schedule allows. Spreadsheet novice but willing to learn.

08/23/2014 - 12:11pm Sorry

But you can't grow out of being the little brother.

08/23/2014 - 5:31am Nice job

What we won't do for our daughters...

08/18/2014 - 9:54pm 11 Worriors crashed

That's gotta be worth something...

08/06/2014 - 8:43pm Congrats

And welcome aboard!

07/30/2014 - 2:59pm The Broken Place

Just finished "The Broken Place" By Michael Shaara.  Nothing like the other novels mentioned and only worth the read if nothing else is available.

07/30/2014 - 12:58pm NCAA Failure

I'm sure the NCAA would frown but it sure would be nice to allow us to set up a trip to the Big House for his mother.

07/28/2014 - 3:33am One jump

Spent four hours training for a static line jump. I looked like a cat coming out a second floor window. At least Two hours before I could speak in complete sentences. Loved it, will never do it again.

01/25/2014 - 9:56pm double

502 bad gateway post....

01/25/2014 - 9:44pm More than a win

You gotta love this team fighting till the end. Spent the final two minutes (or was that an entire lifetime) on the phone with the son... It's good to be a Michigan Wolverine!

01/16/2014 - 6:06pm Always wondered

Who owned that Lear. I've seen it parked in Austin, anyone know if that is where Rogel lives?

12/31/2013 - 1:52pm Well, one good thing in 2013...

I hit 100 Mgo points...

commits are playing in the All American games.  Recruiting is dead?

11/29/2013 - 12:59am George

Per the spousal unit and daughter who ran into Geroge Cambell the other day, he suggested he would make The Game. Did I miss his inclusion?

08/18/2013 - 11:24am Go

There is nothing wrong with attending a HS football game regardless of any previous affiliation.  It's a football game fer godsakes.

05/28/2013 - 11:35pm Regents

Stayed at the Regents for the NE game in 2011.  Not a bad place but they did have the two night min. 

02/12/2013 - 10:25am Regardless

of the outcome, we have this:

Didn't see this link anywhere and even if already posted it's worth a repeat or ten.

01/03/2013 - 9:14pm vast

Majority, not all. Can't find where anyone suggested otherwise. Plenty of morons to be found every where.

01/03/2013 - 5:07pm Ouch

If that is the impression or experience you've had here in Florida please know that the vast majority of us are horrified to hear of this.

Give Tampa another chance and I'll make sure you and your wife get the best steak dinner you've ever had.  And no, it won't be at Charleys.

01/03/2013 - 4:52pm Scalping


Scalping tickets for the bowl games is an art not science.  I've done this many times in the past including the Capital One Bowl vs FL a few years back.  

I set up my cooler and chairs with my son and walked around asking fellow tailgaters if they had extras.  No luck.  Scalpers were selling tickets at 2x face value so plan B was to hit a local bar for the game.  About a half hour before kickoff, some Gator fans we had been BSing with for an hour or two produced two extra tickets at face.  Told us they wanted to make sure we were 'good guys' before they sold them to MI fans.  Guess we fooled them.

Best bet is to work the crowd for tickets or just hang around one of the guys with a 'need tickets' sign.  If someone stops, offer more than the scalper is willing to pay.  Just keep in mind that you are spending all of your pregame time looking for tickets instead of having fun. This year I decided my time was the more valuable commodity.  Not to mention I had 14 people to seat...

They will also recognize Medal of Honor recipient Leroy Petry.  You can read about him here:

07/21/2012 - 8:35am Youtube

There ia a youtube video with an alternate method for getting at the fuel pump.  Might be worth a try?

07/09/2012 - 10:52pm Bo

1989, flew Bo and his wife to Atlanta and the first round of the NCAA MBB tournament.  The AD was kind enough to give the co-pilot and I tickets, behind the wives while the men took seats on the floor.  That was a good day...


One more while I'm here, ran into Lou Pinella outside airpot baggage claim.  Seems his wife got lost and he was stuck waiting for a ride.  Nice guy but given the disparity in income, perhaps he should have given me a smoke rather than bumming one from me.

06/17/2012 - 9:53am spirit

Try spirit out of Dallas. They don't show up on some of the travel sites. I don't care for them but if you need cheap...

06/16/2012 - 7:20pm when we moved to Oahu,

6am didn't seem so bad...

06/16/2012 - 6:15pm spent almost a year

In Japan. The spousal unit would tape the games and FedEx them to me. Would not watch tv all week just in case CNN might flash the score...

05/16/2012 - 11:43pm put in bay

"Put in bay" and stripper in the same paragraph? Am I that old? Have any of you been there?
