President/CEO of a small, not for profit financial services organization in Washtenaw County.  Small, not for profit financial services organization could also be read as "Credit Union" but for some reason many people don't realize that!

When he was there, Rich Rod was West Virginia's Harbaugh.

01/13/2017 - 10:10am WOOT!

Friday!  Long Weekend!  Pay Day!  Papa Wheatley staying!  And I fixed my cracked toilet seat so no more fear of pooping!

Happy days indeed.  Go Blue!

01/10/2017 - 3:37pm For me at least..

It's not about hatred of Sp8 (at least for me.)  It's about seeing a QB that Harbaugh actually hand picked via recruiting rather than what he inherited.  On a positive note though, I have absolute faith that Harbough and Co will choose the QB that they think gives the best chance at winning, and I furthermore agree that Speight has a big head start to being that guy.

No points, but I fear not!

I'm the one who turned MGoBlog in for sexybits because someone needs to think of the children.

LloydBrady is stupid.

MGoBBQ's recipes are swill.

The bumblebee jerseys are lit.

I thought 2016 was a pretty awesome year overall.

Suck it.

 

12/21/2016 - 2:24pm Slippery Slope

My issue with this is the slippery slope that it becomes.  As Ace says,  "I can understhand a player of McCaffrey's caliber skipping any non-playoff appearance.:  The question becomes, where is the line drawn?  What about the last game of the regular season?  Maybe the moment a team is mathematically eliminated from playoff contention it's time to hang it up?  I, like Brian, am torn on this one.

10/31/2016 - 12:15pm Squares

Not worthy of it's own thread, so I am throwing this here-

Last year, as I watched the game and a little piece of me died inside, I had played football "squares" for my kids softball team.  I went home depressed, and at like 3am I woke up suddenly and realized that the final punt play had changed the score (I hadn't even been paying attention at that point) and I won the pot for the football squares.

This year, I played again for the same fundraiser and as Mork was lined up to do the unthinkable with 1 second left I realized that I had Michigan "0" and MSU BOTH "3" and "5".  I.e. If MSU, for SOME reason, actually went for 2 I was going to win the jackpot again if they scored or if they were not successful.  And then Jabrill did his thing and no money for me.

I can tell you without hesitancy that I'll take the result from this year 100% of the time!

Donate $100,000 or so to a high school football program down south.  Ask for naming rights.  Add it to your policy book citing it as one of your practice facilities.  Profit.

Suffice it to say that this is a ludicrous ruling by the NCAA.  And if my suggestion above wouldn't work, tell me how a school opens a new facility under this rule?

MGlobules said words.  Lots of words....I think.

02/09/2016 - 11:30am Cool Story Bro

Eloped to Hawaii 13 years ago and the minister (met him for the first time ever 15 minutes before the ceremony) was named Bobby Boucher!

09/21/2015 - 2:54pm I worked there!

Ok, I can clear up much about this as I worked there from the day it opened until the day I showed up to locked doors and a man handing out our last paychecks.  I was a bus boy initially and a server VERY briefly as they struggled to keep people.  It was one of my first ever jobs.

First, the location.  I can confirm with certainty that it was located on Boardwalk across the street from the Wendy's.  It occupied what is now a sushi restaurant (not sure of the name anymore) and had previously been a Ponderosa.

The restaurant was filled with promise, but I blame the manager for the ultimate failure.  He had been the Ponderosa manager and he ran Bo's in the same vein.  It wanted to be an upscale steakhouse, but paper placemats and napkins, Ponderosa style salad bar and steaks, cheap decorations and low quality servers really all added up to a "meh" experience.

One thing that I distinctly remember is that in the restuarant, they built a small radio studio.  The radio studio had been intended to have Bo and radio hosts come on location to have their Sunday (or whatever day) radio show from the restaurant.  The studio was actually pretty nice, but I don't recall the radio show ever taking place there.  Honestly I don't know what happened in that regard.

One more "cool story bro" moment - years later I took up a job catering and I worked multiple events with Bo in attendance.  I was serving drinks and Bo came up to the station I was working and took his glass and just stood there sipping his white wine.  Striking up conversation, I mentioned to him that I had actually worked at his restaurant and how I had wished it had turned out differently.  He smiled at me, shook his head and told me how it was an investment that his advisors had suggested, and how it was a total cluster f&ck.  I had the pleasure of serving Bo many times and he was always like that in my experience. Blunt and friendly.

Personally I prefer Metzger's but, Heidelberg is both tasty AND delicious!

Harbaugh is always on topic IMHO!

Grievance:  People who are intolerant of other people's cultures.

Oh - and also the Dutch.

er...I had comma fail. My daughters name is Nya, not Sommy!

Lol.

10/19/2009 - 8:44am Me too!

Amazingly, I had the same thought Saturday for my daughter Sommy. See, my daughter is going to be 5 years old on November 21st. The day she was born, was nearly 5 years ago when Troy Smith and the Buckeyes defeated a heavily favored Michigan team in 2004 and started this stretch. Since the day of her birth, we have (as we all know) not beated OSU. In addition, the very first football game that I ever took her too was (you guessed it), "The Horror". BUT, all this has been corrected! Last Saturday I took a chance with her and brought her to DSU. And 'LO, not only did we win but we set the all time UofM offensive yardage record. As I walked with her out of the stadium, it was like a cloud lifted from over her head. I am convinced that the curse is broken and I will say it now - We WILL beat the Buckeyes this year!

10/02/2009 - 10:00am I like this

I think this is a neat find. Nice work.

Also, I think that it's actually 18-3 based on your review. You shorted the underdog a win between the years 1995 and 1997 ('95 is 7-2, '96 is 8-2, '97 is back to 7-3)

09/18/2009 - 3:15pm Promise!

I will not mix my possesive pronouns, adverbs or contractions. If I did in my earlier post, please flog me now!

And I completely appreciate the quality control as well - thanks.

This is almost worse than the day I took my daughter to her first U of M game (opening day 2007). OMG I need a drink now.

I've been a lurker for ages, but this one has brought me out of my shell.

I HAVE to throw my vote in for RED HOT LOVER!
