Hey, it's still Virginia.  You try to find 3 white guys over 40 that haven't worn blackface at least once.  They're getting better, but Richmond was the capital of the Confederacy.  

I'll wait.

02/07/2019 - 12:48pm It always amazes me that the…

It always amazes me that the same species that went from horse and buggy to stealth bomber in less than a century, and put a man on the moon, also thought they would get cooties by sharing a water fountain with someone who had a different skin color.

People are weird.

02/07/2019 - 9:02am Thanks, you're the best!  I…

Thanks, you're the best!  I've never heard it live before, so I will absolutely try to be there.

On a side note, my daughter and I have made an annual tradition of attending Messiah.  We plan to keep it up as long as one of us lives in the area.

You guys really do rock.

02/07/2019 - 7:42am In 1994 my school district…

In 1994 my school district got sued by several parents when they decided to hold classes on a day with -50 wind chill.  Something like a dozen kids at the HS got frost bite (we had to walk outside between classes).

So I get why they cancel classes when it gets that cold out.  But a snow day for anything less than 6-8 inches of snow seems silly.

 

02/05/2019 - 3:45pm Sales actually isn't a bad…

Sales actually isn't a bad idea if he's a people person.  Not much education (if any) required and with a lot of hard work he can make a lot of money.

My biggest regret is going into investigations / compliance instead of sales / securities.  Those little shits make 4x what I do.

01/25/2019 - 10:23am What a stupid fucking idea. …

What a stupid fucking idea.  Half the time I leave my house the phone stays home, and I'm not exactly old yet.  Sometimes I just don't want to be bothered with the fucking thing or have Google and big brother tracking my movements every second of the day.

Then again, the Tigers suck and I wasn't going to be attending games in the near future anyway.

01/24/2019 - 1:31pm Good for you getting out…

Good for you getting out there.  I dropped the ball on Sat.

01/24/2019 - 12:22pm We went a few years ago,…

We went a few years ago, 2016 maybe, and it was great.  But the weather was beautiful, sunny and in the low 70's IIRC.  I don't think I would go if the weather was crap. 

They played an actual "game" that year. 

01/24/2019 - 12:19pm What do the forecasts say…

What do the forecasts say about the lack of snow?  Just a few years go we got like 8 feet.  We haven't even gotten 8 inches this winter (that's what she said).

My kid wants to go sledding.  And I promised the family I'd take them on a sleigh ride.

Fuck this winter. 

01/23/2019 - 3:41pm If you do visit for the…

If you do visit for the Dream Cruise, come a few days early and have lunch at Duggan's.  They bought some of the recipes from Ted's, Totem-Pole, and Susie Q when they went under.

01/23/2019 - 1:40pm My current car is pretty…

My current car is pretty good in the snow (Infiniti G37x) with the AWD and some decent all-season tires.

The best snow machine I ever had was a '99 Jeep Cherokee.  It had the bulletproof 4.0 straight six and an interior you could clean with not much more than a wet rag and a shop vac.

There was a blizzard where we got about 15 inches of snow overnight.  The plows hadn't touched most of the main roads, never mind side streets or parking lots.  I was supposed to be in court to fight a speeding ticket that morning, so I cleaned the Jeep off and off I went.  I was one of the few people out that morning and I made it there without a problem.  It was way too fun for a trip to court.

Naturally when I got there the court was closed due to the storm.

01/23/2019 - 1:34pm Jesus that's a beautiful car…

Jesus that's a beautiful car.  I'm not a particularly envious person, but between the nice boat, the hot wife, and now a goddamn '68 GTO, I'm 14 different shades of green over here.

At least you deserve it, what with the cancer and shitty first wife and all.

Seriously though, gorgeous car.  I've been trying to track down a '70 Cutlass Supreme to restore for little Hatter to have as his first car.  He'll be able to drive it in 10 years and I figure it would probably take me that long.

01/23/2019 - 10:15am The money is what bothers me…

The money is what bothers me more than anything else.  What in the actual fuck is he doing to justify a $1.4 million salary?  The fact that no other team wants him tells me he's severely overpaid.

 

01/23/2019 - 10:12am "he even texted and talked…

"he even texted and talked with teammates at halftime of the Peach Bowl."

The team is spending halftime txting?  No wonder we got our asses kicked.

01/23/2019 - 8:57am Yeah, if you want to sit out…

Yeah, if you want to sit out the bowl game, fine.  I don't like it, but whatever.

But a captain sitting out looks like a total asshole.  Like the ship is taking on water and his ass is the first one in a life boat.

01/22/2019 - 12:47pm Depends, does Patterson have…

Depends, does Patterson have a broken arm in 2016?  Is Milton playing in 2017?

01/22/2019 - 11:51am The passing game sure seemed…

The passing game sure seemed better when Jedd was around. 

01/22/2019 - 11:33am Amen.

Shit is on fire, yo.

Amen.

Shit is on fire, yo.

01/18/2019 - 2:27pm Who the fuck would sign that…

Who the fuck would sign that contract?  Not me.

01/18/2019 - 12:01pm With that red rubber ball…

With that red rubber ball that hurts like hell when it hits your skin.

I'm in.  Add kickball too.

01/18/2019 - 11:59am I had sex with Kate Upton…

I had sex with Kate Upton last night.  And by "had sex with" I mean "looked at her picture while I jerked off".  That's the same thing, right?

01/18/2019 - 11:43am I'm not just talking about…

I'm not just talking about parenting, nobody knows what the fuck they're doing in most situations.

And you can be a good parent while still being friends with your kids.

01/18/2019 - 10:36am The older I get, the more I…

The older I get, the more I realize that nobody knows what the fuck they're doing. 

01/18/2019 - 8:58am That job sounds like a pain…

That job sounds like a pain in the ass.

01/18/2019 - 7:59am When my son was 4 - 5 and at…

When my son was 4 - 5 and at the peak of his Star Wars fandom he would tell everyone that he met that Darth Vader went to Michigan.

Also, James Earl Jones, despite having one of the best voices of all times, had a horrible stutter when he was a kid and actually went years without speaking at all.  He still does it when he tries to talk too fast.

Happy Birthday Mr. Jones.  Hopefully you spent it (and every other day) in a recording studio reading the entire Oxford English Dictionary.

01/17/2019 - 1:33pm Thanks for the summary.  If…

Thanks for the summary.  If the players didn't have a union they'd probably all be converted to 1099 contractors.

If there's only one workers comp carrier for the entire league, they have a serious problem.  That carrier won't be willing to take all that risk forever without charging insanely high premiums.

Luckily college players don't get workers comp benefits.

01/17/2019 - 12:36pm I'm surprised they don't…

I'm surprised they don't self-insure like most big companies do.  Just charge the players outrageous amount for coverage that doesn't kick in at all until you hit a massive deductible.

Just like my "good" company provided insurance does now.

01/16/2019 - 3:53pm He'll find a way when it…

He'll find a way when it starts costing him money.

01/16/2019 - 3:37pm I don't even really look at…

I don't even really look at internet porn at that often, I just like knowing that it's there.

 

01/16/2019 - 3:09pm Fucking puritans.  I'm…

Fucking puritans.  I'm really beginning to hate all of the tech companies.

Oh no, a nipple!  SHUT.  DOWN.  EVERYTHING!

01/16/2019 - 2:13pm I posted this earlier, but I…

I posted this earlier, but I'd like to see a "Michigan Monday" style write-up of OSU games. 

01/16/2019 - 1:48pm Right.  She crashed the…

Right.  She crashed the stock and housing markets in 2008.  All by herself!  That Canadian monster!

01/16/2019 - 11:27am Did people forget that fat…

Did people forget that fat fuck was a gigantic asshole as governor?  Not sure what MSU expected here.

Next time you see a mentally ill homeless person, thank John Engler.  Cunt.

01/16/2019 - 10:27am well played.

well played.

01/16/2019 - 9:49am I'd like it if someone did a…

I'd like it if someone did a "Michigan Monday" type article for OSU games since I usually don't watch them.

01/16/2019 - 9:30am I don't like gravy.  Au Jus…

I don't like gravy.  Au Jus is the way to go.

01/15/2019 - 10:04am When those cars came out…

When those cars came out they were all over the place in Metro Detroit.  Since no one was buying them, GM made everyone that got a company car (which used to be a ton of ppl) take one instead of their Caddies and suv's.

01/14/2019 - 1:54pm Pubic lice are going extinct…

Pubic lice are going extinct in most western countries thanks to the "bald is beautiful" movement.

01/14/2019 - 1:40pm Snoop is a national treasure…

Snoop is a national treasure.

Also, contrary to popular belief, both he and Martha Stewart are convicted felons.  And I'm pretty sure they've fucked at least once.

 

01/11/2019 - 1:10pm Him and his budget?  Almost…

Him and his budget?  Almost nothing other than concession purchases a few times per year.  For the school at large?  I'm paying a lot more for my daughter's tuition than people are paying for season tickets.

01/11/2019 - 12:46pm I like the hire, but that…

I like the hire, but that beard needs to go.  Hopefully it's in his contract that he has to remove it.

01/11/2019 - 12:38pm Enos sounds a lot like penis…

Enos sounds a lot like penis.  I'll bet he caught hell in school.

Good.  Fuck that guy.

01/11/2019 - 12:36pm Following the board?

Hell,…

Following the board?

Hell, that's the entirety of the American moral code these days.  Get money.  More money.  All the money!  It doesn't matter how.

-spits on the floor

01/11/2019 - 11:36am Especially not Indiana. …

Especially not Indiana.  They run us into the ground every damn year.

Seriously, schedule Eastern before OSU.  I'll go to that game.  Promise.

01/11/2019 - 11:35am I'll buy mine on game day…

I'll buy mine on game day for $20.  Season tickets are for rich people now.

01/11/2019 - 11:33am Seems like he should be 30…

Seems like he should be 30 years old by now.  So maybe BYU?

01/11/2019 - 10:43am You're lucky.  If I sleep in…

You're lucky.  If I sleep in 5 mins my cat bitches so loud in the hallway that I have to get up and feed him.

The he does the same thing to Mrs. Hatter 2 hours later.

01/11/2019 - 10:32am It was a fax that Jay sent…

It was a fax that Jay sent to Chris Clark with a list of reasons he should play at Michigan.  You're a baller was on that list.  The whole thing was cringe.

01/11/2019 - 10:14am Ugh, I had completely…

Ugh, I had completely forgotten about that cringeworthy episode from Jay in his first year.  Glad he stopped embarrassing himself publicly like that.

01/10/2019 - 3:40pm I disagree.  All this guy…

I disagree.  All this guy has to do is design better plays than Pep did and suggest them to Harbaugh in game and it'll be a massive improvement.
