Michigan Lost

What else is new? I have to hope (ugh) that Ohio State gets a BCS at-large bid so that Michigan can play in the Outback Bowl on New Year's Day. If not, they play in the Alamo Bowl on 12/28, breaking a long string on New Year's Day bowl appearances.

I contacted a lot of people about the TV status of the Michigan-Ohio State game. I sent a note to several members of the Phoenix Michigan Alumni Club. I got two responses, one (the president) said that it didn't matter since they would show it at some bar where the alumni club gathered. The other one said that he was sure it would be on TV and not to worry. They were both pretty condescending. I also contacted the president of the local Ohio State alumni club. His reaction was that it was an outrage and that he would try to do something about it. He also got back to me later with an update. I am not sure where I am going with this but it is not to a place that I would have predicted.

I'm in Chicago

Schaumburg, actually. It's snowing.

Channel 15 is not going to show the Michigan/Ohio State game this weekend. There is an unverified claim that ESPN will be showing it, although the listings currently say otherwise.

Learned a few things

I couldn't figure out how to:

  • have a title for the post
  • enable the coments, backlinks stuff
Gonna find out right now if this works.

Just found out that somebody actually reads this stuff once in a while.

The internet problem hasn't come back.

Here is the lamp that we ordered.
