07/15/2016 - 10:45am Took the family on a Disney

Took the family on a Disney vacation this year, May 23 - June 2. Went to Disney Springs/Downtown Disney a few times. On the last night, June 1 I think. We were hanging out by this stage where they have performances and dj's. My wife points out a guy by himself taking pictures with his phone of the stage, guy looks middle eastern. Its making her uncomfortable mainly cause she thinks he may be taking pics of the kids too. She shoots him a look as if to say "i see you, what the fuck do you think you are doing". He moves about 20 yards away and keeps taking pics of the stage area and large crowd. Think nothing more of it, Orlando night club shooting happens about a week or 2 later. We see pics of the shooter, same guy we saw at Disney Springs. He was scouting Didney Springs and had gone to Magic Kingdom same time we were there.

Not sure how near death this experience was, but there was nothing stopping him from shooting that place up. There is no security that checks bags or requires a ticket at Disney Springs.

Odd there are so many tickets available after Iowa's 2015 season.

Amybody got am idea on the Penn State game time? Hoping for a 3:30 game, but it could depend on how PSU does in their first 3 games.

Went to the celebration with the flu. My Dad didn't take me seriously when I told him I felt like crap. I think it might have had to do with the fact he was pissed he had sold off his season tickets that year since we needed the money and Michigan hadn't reallt been too great the last few seasons.

Lloyd Carr - served me scrambled eggs at a student finals breakfast in 2007.

David Arquette & Courtney Cox - 2011 when they were filming Scream 4 in Ann Arbor at 1am at Black Pearl, owner came out and eacprted them in.

Jeff Daniels - at the ice cube where his son played hockey.

Colby Rasmus - have a family connection with him. Had dinner and chatted with him for about 2 hours when Astros were in Detroit a few months ago. Extremely nice and down to earth, both him and his wife.

A-Train - bagged his 6 pack for him when i was a bag boy at the krogers on packard.

Richard Simmons - time square filming some infomercial in 2000.

What is a dad-jeaned toadstool?

"Attaching one's self to a high school 1300 miles away like a dad-jeaned toadstool is by no stretch a "teaching opportunity," as the camps were so designed."

2002 vs OSU Navarre to someone in the endzone not wearing red.
2005 vs OSU Stop Troy Smith on the last drive
2013 vs OSU Even if we get the 2 pt conversion, not so sure OSU doesnt get within field goal range with 30 seconds left. Just something i have always thought about.
2013 vs Louisville Hancock getting 4 threes in a row, completely changed the game.
2000 vs Purdue or Northwestern. Last second field goal vs Purdue or A-Train fumble vs Northwestern.
2009 vs MSU Go for 2 and get it.
2013 vs Wisconsin No half court shot.

The list could go on. We have also had some game deciding plays go our way.

Went to the 2009 game and had a pretty good time. Stayed and partied in the msu student neighborhoods and had a great time for the most part, an asshole or two is going to happen. It was the adults who were the biggest d bags on gameday. Wanted to go back this year but no one else I knew was interested.

Anyone from Ann Arbor going to the game and making a side trip to The Alchemist? I am in dire need of some Heady Topper and will trade some nice beers if you can get me a couple 4 packs.

Kind of shows how sucky the options are at MSU. Mennas Joint also exists at WMU and CMU.  Hell, I would probably say WMU has better food options than MSU.

Sparty will not still be perfect and we will not stumble. I see the MSU Minnesota game being a noon BTN game.

10/27/2010 - 10:42am ND went to BCS bowl games in

ND went to BCS bowl games in 2005 and 2006 and were obliterated in both games by LSU and OSU.  I think they might have gone to one in 1999 or 1998 as well and were blown out.

Main Street Party Shoppe has Nemesis in stock. No KBS though as expected.

The Corner Room (I think thats what its called) was where the wife and I went at PSU.  Pretty good food.  I've heard good things about The Diner too, isn't that where they have the sticky buns that everyone talks about?

10/25/2010 - 10:29am Nice, I might have to try

Nice, I might have to try Paulaner Oktoberfest. I didn't like Bells or Sam Adams Oktoberfests this year.

I will definitely check with beer depot and whole foods.   Hillers, Buschs, and Plum Market have awesome beer selections, but neither of these beers unfortunately. I think KBS and Nemesis were both small batches, so they might be all drank up now. 

09/21/2010 - 3:59pm My favorite part of the

My favorite part of the Detroit News article:

 

"This is about stealing educational opportunity directly from our students and we aren't going to stand for it," he said. Some of the thieves, captured on videotape wearing ski masks, were former DPS students and some were gang members, he said.

From The Detroit News: http://detnews.com/article/20100921/SCHOOLS/9210415/MSU-player-among-10-implicated-in-scheme-to-steal--sell-DPS-computers#ixzz10CD8lBEQ

 

09/10/2010 - 8:43am Actually I believe Purdue

Actually I believe Purdue missed the field goal to take the lead with about 2 minutes or so in the game. Then we had the ball and just needed a first down to run out the clock but went conservative and gave the ball right back to them. It was just like in 2001 vs MSU, all we needed was a first down to ice the game, but again, Lloyd went conservative.

08/06/2010 - 1:36pm Winning or losing the App St

Winning or losing the App St game wouldn't have affected our conference standings.

It would have still remained:

OSU - NC Game

Illinois - Rose Bowl

Michigan - Cap One Bowl

So assuming App St win, we finish the season 10-3 (losses to Oregon, Wisconsin, and OSU)

Check Mgoblue.com, you might get lucky. I had some tickets around row 90 for the Uconn game, but chose to pass.

08/04/2010 - 10:29am This guy is selling his pair

This guy is selling his pair of ND tickets for $275, not a bad price. I got mine off craigslist a month ago for $250. I would also check ebay, hopefully ND loses to Purdue and that drives the prices down.

08/02/2010 - 10:34am Preseason predictions are

Preseason predictions are largely based on past results. Iowa was better than Wisconsin last year, beat Wisconsin handily in Madison, and played a much better game against OSU.  Iowa still has a solid running game, defense, and a veteran QB returning. That said, preseason predictions mean nothing when the season starts.

07/30/2010 - 3:06pm Question about section 30

Does section 30 go all the way down to the field or is it one of those sections that starts about half way up?

07/30/2010 - 11:27am Well at least MSU can't thump

Well at least MSU can't thump their chest about this one and we'll end up with Dee Hart anyway.

Please let her be sent to the NFL network or something. If that happens, at least our ESPN 2 Michigan games won't be haunted by that suckubus anymore.

Its about 39 rows back from the field....

Seriously though, row 39 is a great spot to see everything on the field. Generally, row 30-70 is a good range to be in to see all the action.

My Dad tells me they use to roll kegs into Michigan Stadium all the time back in the 1970's, no sneaking it in, just roll right past ushers with it....we need to get back to this sort of thing.  Now, cops at the gates are looking for beers in cargo pockets and if they do find the beers, they treat you like they just found a gun or something.

07/23/2010 - 10:55am Craigslist is your best bet,

Craigslist is your best bet, the prices on ebay are too high right now...everything on there is buy it now or the starting bid is really high.

I think I saw that stand too, the guy had an awesome mullet right?  He also had some cool pictures of the michigan and state theatres.

I'll be going to all the home games plus @ ND. Had an opportunity to get PSU tickets, but have already been there and would rather spend Halloween in Ann Arbor.  Purdue is a possibility though, went there in 2004 and have great memories.

And since I'll be living on oakland right behind the law school, a new autumn favorite might become going to Dominics pretty regularly.
