thank you both for posting those.  they are tough to read.

God bless his wife and children.

hi.  my name is xtramelanin and i am a lions fan....

easier still:  you didn't have your lucky socks and hat on.  so now we know how that disaster happened in c-bus.  it was all our friend chalky white's fault.  a tragedy that could've been avoided.

they will help us win, but only if you do your part to be prepared for the games and to root hard enough.  and to wear your lucky socks.  and hat.  then we'll win it all.

i am hesitant to guess.   too many ways that could go wrong.  wouldn't want to offend mean joe.

serious question:  are you any relation to meanjoe?

Easy choice.

and apparently srjk is done with advent sermon prep, or taking a break.

you were wrong about one thing:  i think most of us genuinely enjoy fans from other teams posting here (e.g, buckeye chuck, nittany fan) when they are fun, realistic, add to the convo and yes, even if adding to it is legitimate disagreement.  what nobody likes is the stupid trolling.  you aren't trolling and people will enjoy what you posted.  thanks.

sten,  you were on a roll last night.  well done.

Remember, your army and mine are nearly the same size.  I only take 3 at a time though.  Makes for a much better experience for all involved.  Local games I'll take the whole crew, but not to travel to AA.

12/13/2018 - 9:04pm seriously, is your life so…

seriously, is your life so shallow and empty that you feel the need to be an ohio troll on a michigan board?  is that all you have?  what else are you interested in?  are you playing in any sports leagues, or bowling, golf, anything like that?  

12/13/2018 - 7:51pm speaking of delusional, why…

speaking of delusional, why don't you tell us a bit about yourself.  maybe your school/job/athletic/marital history?  we'd all love to get to know you since you are the master of reality.  you must be a very neat fella (or gal, sorry if i'm being presumptuous).

not your bruh. i would never have a troll bruh.  get a productive hobby.  go make some real friends.  maybe exercise would help you.  but stop trolling.  it is a waste of life, your life, and life is precious.

SRJK i am with you for the most part.  i'll try to make sure the kids eat a ton outside of the stadium so that they won't be hungry inside, or if they are, its not much more than snack food or the occasional hot dog, hot chocolate, or pizza.  and we'll have food in the truck for the ride back up north, also cutting the food bill.

i didn't know it was an annual gig either.  but question for you arb lover, since you seem to have delved much deeper into the numbers than most - if you are looking at the numbers they show for comparing the stadiums with local restaurants, do you think its worthy of an adjustment that the restaurants are open from, say 300 to 360 days/yr and more likely to be investigated just by shear numbers, while the venues for most of the pro stuff, even if you add in some concerts/boat shows/ice follies, etc. might be open 1/3 rd of the time?

i object to your callous, unequal use of the punctuation and other marks.  where are the !!?  how about some >> or some <<.  what do you have against these guys^ and += these guys?   and asterisks are underrepresented.  those little ** will haunt urban meyer's legacy till time ends.  he is, in a word, an asterisk.  won a lot, but the ring leader of a criminal enterprise.  you don't want to be under-asterrisked when you are talking about urban.

guessing that worker's comp is her only claim, meaning her exclusive avenue of recovery or remedy.  no separate tort recovery.  tell her to find a local, reputable comp lawyer and go from there.   if no comp insurance (unlikely since you said fortune 500), then it sounds like painful but not life-changing injuries - hope i'm right about that.  it is a bad fact pattern for the company but they lucked out in a sense.

the problem is the OP troll not so much the content, although that's not the greatest either.

wait, why do we need the skins to lose?  if we win our division, we're in the playoffs.  then keep winning and sure, lions in the super bowl. 

and you will win the lottery twice.  in a row.  in 3 different countries.  without buying a ticket.

12/8/2018 – Michigan 89, South Carolina 78 – 10-0

A sloppy outing ends in an eleven point win as Michigan is clearly better, so that's nice. Items:

The un-Michigan game. Michigan 1) rebounded almost half their misses, 2) turned it over 16 times, 3) made 77% of their free throws, and allowed the bricklayers on the other team to shoot 53% from two. This was very un-Dude. Certain things did make sense in the recent history of Michigan basketball. South Carolina got up just 11 threes, didn't go to the line much, and Michigan burned the nets themselves.

 

is he whining, too?  no.  neither of us are/were.   we didn't play that well, 'sloppy' and 16 turnovers is why the offense gets an 'okay', and the brick-layers shooting > 50% is emblematic of our D playing poorly.

mike, if your comment re: whiny is for me, i will be as diplomatic as i can be and say you are inaccurate about my comment and/or don't understand what the word means.  my expression of doubt about running the table, which is borne out by statistical analysis is much different than whining, which would entail excessive complaining/lamentation.   read the blog analysis of the metrics of USC (ntusc) season, 4-4 record, losses to bad teams, etc.  we played very poorly.  our offense was okay but our defense sucked hind teet.  glad we won.  positive outlook about the season.  not prone to boasting about running the table. 

12/09/2018 - 2:10pm you know, after i just…

you know, after i just watched a miserable, going to the bottom of the SEC, team give us all the game we would want for the first 30 minutes or so, i'm not so confident about predicting undefeated anything.  on the whole, very positive, but on a game-by-game basis, its a weighted coin toss where we win more than we lose.

'jimmy'?  you and 'jimmy' on a first name basis, or are you so uber-superior that guys like harbaugh are beneath you?

start winning?  what you're really saying is 'never lose' given 3 of 4 seasons are 10+ wins.  since we don't buy players and we don't juice, that is exceptionally unlikely.

request OP change title to:  "harbaugh confirm's xtramelanin's friday post on same topic".  

he ain't leaving for nothing.  maybe never, and certainly not for the next 5 years, minimum.  he is home.  the kids are home.  mom/dad next door.  he doesn't need the $ they'd wave at him.  and he is not moving his large family until/unless they are grown and gone, and he has younguns.  he is not going anywhere.

very glad you are okay.  good heads-up to all. 

suggest you stay away from any posts about 'crootin', could unnecessarily raise your blood pressure.

frank, you are (or were, assumedly you're asleep now) on a roll.  nice input.  i didn't read every post but i skimmed a number of them.   don't be a stranger.
