the grouse in the dark. however we live in the boonies, so no close fireworks and she will not have that conditioned response to go hunting with her tail going 1,000 mph.
|04/19/2015 - 6:44pm||Not a Fair Question for an old Bouncer||
since the stories can go on, and on, and on. but how about one that is from ann arbor where i wasn't technically in the story. 'we' were out eating at the brown jug late one night. one table didn't have enough $ and decided to do a 'dine and dash'. well the manager somehow figured that out and when that particular table was on the way out they were confronted by an ann arbor cop. one of our football player buddies (no names here, but he was a lineman) panicked and without saying a word hit the cop on the button and dropped him on the spot. reminscent of caddy shack, they all quickly walked away leaving the cop.....

good to see you posting.
would you be so kind to email me on back channels? I am having a tech problem - i'm invisible for most of my posts.

on attitude alone. funchess is a malcontent waiting to pollute a locker room. DG is the same height, same or better hands, better moves on fly (funchess only runs straight), and will learn the routes 10x faster.

in fact, we have trained the sheep on the farm to say, 'har-BAAA! har-BAAA!'
throw in our old pick-up truck and we got ourselves a deal, right jimmy?

|12/08/2014 - 10:47am||Good||
hoke's a great guy, just not a great HC on a stage as big as michigan's. wish him well, excepting if/when we play a team of his.
|12/08/2014 - 9:19am||A Good OC||
can run and adapt to most any system with two provisos: first, they do have to be familiar with some of the more unique offenses such as option and wishbone type set ups. knowing the intricacies helps tremendously with improvising blocking schemes on the OL.
second, of course at some point you have to play with the cards you are dealt and that means some personnel just won't be well adapted to some of the specific offenses.
i played using a very sophisticated pro-style offense, some might characterize it as a 'west coast' offense. i think that offense is more of how you set your chess pieces, primarily using an I-formation and of course precluding things like option/veer and the air-raid type of offense. it is nevertheless very flexible in what you can run depending on down, distance and personnel.

may our football team soon remind others of that dynamic.
|12/07/2014 - 6:08pm||O-fer Bowls||
overly cynical. my guess is we'll do okay at the bottom end of our bowl-eligible teams: think minnie, psu, maybe the illini.

may you be right about this.
all in favor of harbaugh to michigan, say 'aye!'
|12/06/2014 - 10:04pm||Naive Me||
thinks programs like michigan's are not dirty (though not perfect), but fsu is like an sec team, but with more felons. that qb of theirs isn't my favorite, to put it mildly. still, ohio, so i have to hold my nose and root for the noles.
|12/06/2014 - 9:53pm||Noles are Dirty||
so hard to pull for them, even if it is to keep ohio out.

|12/06/2014 - 10:45am||Street Hockey or '500'||
street hockey where everybody had their old sticks and the blades got worn down by the pavement and started to look more like knives. kind of like 'wayne's world', when a car came down the street and we all yelled 'car!'
500 was the other game we played. one guy would hit the ball out to us and if you caught it on the fly it was something like 100 pts, grounder was 50, etc. kind of like full-contact outfield play. the first guy to 500 then got to be the batter. it was helped along by all of us doing our best imitation of the tv announcers back then, 'george kell and larry osterman. it's bright, sun-shinny day here at tiger stadium'. only slightly less wonderful than ernie harwell.

i'm still laughing as i type this. +1 because they won't let me +1000.

but on second thought, no, just let it go.
|12/03/2014 - 8:41pm||However, The Search Gets Degraded||
if there are numerous targets that are approached without a deal coming through. a 'bold move' that is merely a recon mission and results in a public rejection isn't going to advance our cause.

scottie did not look like that. he was wrestling at 177. i can only imagine the amount of juice and HGH it took to get there, and hope that he doesn't get kidney and/or liver cancer because of that.

faith and family to enjoy with that. as for 'stuff', i'd have to think about that. maybe some more cows, including at least one more dairy cow. i can almost rationalize getting another tractor, but i won't ask santa for it. oh yeah, and a replacement for our outdoor weather 'station'. very helpful on the farm and ours died a month ago.
|12/01/2014 - 6:20pm||Hey Now Mabel||
lots of positives living here in farm country michigan. wouldn't trade it for all of ohio, or even southern cal.
|12/01/2014 - 4:50pm||No Cell Phones||
for the kids except when they are at a practice or game where one of us isn't present. then we have a little trac phone for them for communication with the home base. i recommend you continue on your current course of action.
|12/01/2014 - 4:43pm||Lots Of Prayers||
answered with that news.
|11/30/2014 - 10:20pm||The Cupboard is Full||
or nearly so, here at michigan. unlike most places which are wastelands, ann arbor is chock full of (undeveloped) talent. makes for a very attractive coaching job.
|11/30/2014 - 1:43pm||Must Be a Knowledgeable Source||
what team did she play for? who'd she coach?
|11/30/2014 - 9:03am||Agree With All Except Funchess||
he might get drafted, but if he does, it's a 5-7 rounder. has tools, but no numbers this year, the 'dropsies', no blocking, and looks to be an attitude problem.
