Re: 50 Michigan movies

Good list, and yes, I voted. One film not listed and I believe to be more "essential" than a few on the list is the quirky 2005 drama Winter Passing starring Ed Harris, Zooey Deschanel, and Will Farrell. It takes place predominately in upstate Michigan, though I believe was shot in New Jersey.

Actually I was thinking about the cities the bowls take place in, (especially smaller cities like Mobile, Albuquerque, Shreveport and Boise) not the schools themselves.
The mostly half-empty stands should tell you something in that regard.

Re: All Five Teams

Why not, when corporate sponsors are willing to foot the bill to feed our insatiable appetite for holiday season football on television, no matter how mediocre the teams. Goodness, a mere six wins and a .500 overall record is now the threshold for bowl eligibility. It's getting to be like the NHL pl...

Don Melvoin - Somewhere In Time

For those who don't know, the romantic science fiction cult classic Somewhere In Time from 1980, shot predominately on Mackinac Island, features a bit speaking part for none other than Don Melvoin ( Deputy Don and Count Zappula of '70s-'80s Northern Michigan local television). He's a blustery charac...

Re: 2019 Detroit Lions

I have to admit Driskel's mobility is a refreshing change and he definitely has the arm. He also doesn't panic when the pocket collapses, an inevitability with this O-line. His ability to extend plays kept us in this game. However, that fourth quarter two-point conversion attempt was a big nothing b...

Re: To anyone who liked the Blake Griffin trade...

I grew up loving basketball...watching and playing. My earliest memories were the Wilt vs Bill days. Names like Oscar Robertson, Jerry Lucas, Elgin Baylor. I played as a kid,in high school and adult rec for several years. Somewhere along the line I lost interest in all but the local teams, pro and ...

Tesla and Other EVs

Just curious if anyone reading this has had the opportunity to test drive a Tesla vehicle. The only Tesla "gallery" currently in Michigan is located at the posh Somerset Collection in Troy. I think there's something like twenty EV charging stations in Michigan, mostly concentrated in the Metro Detro...

Re: 2019 Detroit Lions

Rearing its ugly head again yesterday was the Lions' ineptness in the red zone. Driskel looked halfway decent working with what had to be a limited playbook. Goodness gracious, we were winning the time-of-possession and total yards by a mile in the first half and yet could muster only six lousy poin...

Re: 2019 Detroit Lions

My memory is failing me. What year was it when Stafford engineered all those late comeback wins? I remember a particularly "impossible" one against the Raiders on the coast. In other news, it's reported that Stafford won't be playing against the Bears today . His remarkable streak of starts comes to...

Re: I have to ask the MSU football fans...

Okay, I'll bite. I'm afraid today's college game may have passed Dantonio by. In response he's become, in Craig's words in regard to (sc)UM fans, "arrogant, naive and myopic". He was a great coach while he lasted. :hat In the coach's defense, his teams the last couple years have been wracked by inju...
