Happy Birthday to Us!

Today marks the one year anniversary since we started the MZone. What began as Benny and I just hoping a couple people (that we didn't know) might wander over to our little corner of cyberspace has morphed into 4,000+ readers on the average day.

A big thanks to all of you for checking us out. Your comments and emails telling us how much you enjoy the site are what keep us plugging away each night in order to come up with something for the next day. As we always say, it sure as hell isn't the cash.

Also, thanks for all your tips and suggestions. They're much appreciated (and give us some great laughs, too).

Finally, don't forget to sign the card.

Happy B-day Mzone. I hope our blog gets to be just like you when it grows up.

Except for Yost. Get a haircut hippie!

So far, Michigan has been giving you nice birthday presents every Saturday.

daddy said...

I found you accidentally, and even though I'm not remotely close to being a Michigan fan, I've discovered I can't live without you. Happy Birthday and keep up the good work.

Happy Birthday M Zone, although I don't think too many guys are checking you out. Well, except the Aggies.

Happy B-Day you guys are awesome !!

You make my day, not a day goes by without checking your site. Keep up the good work.

Borat said...

Happy Birthday MZone... your posts about tOSU have pushed me to hold out for one more college semester in California and to instead transfer to the U. of Texas in Austin (even after they lost to tOSU). Buckstache Bitch!!!!

Tuggs said...

Happy B-Day! Love the site. There isn't a morning goes by that I don't check to see what you clowns are up to.

Keep up the great work.

GO BLUE!!!

Brickeye said...

Happy B-day M-Zone.

Your satirical shenanigans toward my Buckeyes is both cheeky and funny. Keep it up. I'll light an extra couch of fire in honor of you guys. Later, we will all retreat to the library for a party....in my pants!

Congrats Fellas!!! Keep it up. You're an integral part of my Michigan obsession.

Crabapple Buck said...

I know the rivalry is safe in your hands. Congrats on creating an addicting site.

Happy Birthday!
I'm a huge Hawkeye fan over here in Iowa. I think I first found out about you from a link to your site on hawkeyereport.com's message boards. I've been back damn near every day since.
Keep up the GREAT work!

Happy Birthday to the Maize and Blue Faithful from a former Youper and a very proud Clemson University alum.

richard cranium said...

Congrats on your one year. You motorboating sons of bitches are hilarious and I have now visited everyday since I found this site back in November '05! I sent that girl in the cake and hopefully she gave you both a long lasting gift.... of crotch-rot!!!

The Game in November #1 vs. #2

Happy Birthday!

This is a great site for college football. I crack up at just about every story you guys put out. Honestly, if someone doesn't like your site they just don't understand the tradition, emotion and joy of college football. From a South Carolina fan - Great Job!
(but don't expect me to squeeze my nuts over it)

So where's the card without the blacked out portions?? Happy B-day

Hey guys!

My day doesn't start till I get to work and open up this site and get my 5 mins of laughter. Please keep up the good work and go blue!

Andy said...

Congrats in stealing many many hours from my otherwise productive life.

I am making the trip from Austin to Ann Arbor this weekend... and I won't be shaking my keys as a present to you !!!!

jg6544 said...

I enjoy the hell out of your blog and frequently share bits of it with my fellow Longhorns fans. Thanks for all the laughs, guys.

BaggyPantsDevil said...

Congratulations on such a successful blog!

And thanks for giving me a place to actually discuss Michigan football after many long and lonely years of being the only Michigan fan wherever I happened to be.

WillinSacto said...

Happy Birthday Guys!! Keep up the good work

Charlie Brown said...

I have no affiliation with Michigan (I'm a Clemson Tiger, or as Lou Holtz would say, "University of Clemson"), yet this has become my home page. Congrats, and keep up the great work!

I'll do my best to support your blog by continuing to buy t-shirts.

From a relative of OLD'98 keep up the good work! Happy B-Day

Happy Birthday guys! The blogosphere wouldn't be the same without you!

Richard said...

Happy Birthday M Zone. Great Work, that makes the days between Saturdays fly by. Hopes for many more years of great stuff..

Buckett said...

As a Tennessee and Notre Dame fan I should hate you guys....but i just can't get enough. Happy Birthday and here's to many more to come.

CaliGirl said...

Happy Birthday! Thanks for my daily laugh!!

Go Blue

Tony said...

Even though you guys root for the wrong team, you sure are entertaining. Happy Blogday!

Looking forward to November 18th...

ejhuerta said...

Happy Birthday!

I'm still a loyal UofA Wildcat fan, but you guys have definately brought up my love for UM football again. Thank you for a great year!

- Enrique

uncleboo said...

as a Columbus native and obvious tOSU fan, your site has taught me that all that is UM is not bad at all. Great site guys ... can't wait til we beat your ass in November

Trevor Pitt said...

Happy Blog-B-Day, Michigan bitches (I say that with the utmost respect, for maintaining such an interesting blog)! Here's hoping that you have loads of fun with some of those "Ann Arbor Whores" I always hear so much about. Fingers-crossed that U of M is undefeated when you roll into my town, Columbus, on November 18. Keep up the good work guys. And Goooooo Blog!

Happy Birthday, and many happy returns! I love the site, always a good laugh (and sometimes, some beautiful babes)!

Thanks!

the greatest site ever keep it up. I tell everyone i know to check it out.

Mike said...

Congrats guys! Go hire a stripper to give you your spankings.

Wholesome Goodness said...

On behalf of myself and the noble Capbuck, who finds himself without the internets: Happy b-day. You've brought a Wolverine fan and Buckeye fan together to talk about something other than why Tosu clothing for your baby is child abuse.

UM owes its season to you.

Ali Haji-Sheikh said...

Happy B-day guys. Now KILL SPARTY!

Zach Landres-Schnur said...

does courtney simpson make house calls?

CrimeNotes said...

Rock. With the exception of the Alamo Bowl, it's been a key-jangling good time.

West Coaster said...

Congrats and best wishes for many more blogging years. Before finding the MZone, I was never particularly fond of UM (owing primarily to my Pac 10 bias), but I must admit that I am becoming a key jangling admirer of Maize and Blue.

Happy b-day guys. I love getting a laugh out of you guys every day

TitleIX said...

Yo Benny! How come Yost gets the girl????

Happy Birthday Boys--
thanks for your dedication, your wit and wisdom, and the damn good photoshopping!

To the Leaders and Best!

AH said...

From a Buckeye, Happy Birthday! I visit often. Well done. Keep up the good work. Go Buckeyes Beat Blue.

matsut said...

Feliz Cumpleanos (I don't know how to make a tilde, and I don't feel like finding out), bitches.

Brad said...

Yost and Benny, you magnificent bastards, I read your blog!!

rcartman28 said...

Happy Birthday M Zone. I'm not really a Michigan fan, either, but love the site, and chew up lots of valuable work time daily reading it. It must be starting to affect me, though, since I was at the Twin Cities Marathon this past weekend waiting for my wife to run by and I shouted "Go Blue" at a runner wearing a UM singlet (who naturally pumped his fist in the air). I have to be careful, though, reading the site since my manager has huge tOsu connections.

Keep up the great work....

Reg Dunlop said...

This Vol fan says the Big 10(11) doesn't suck after all. Great stuff over the past year guys.

Happy Birthday from Argentina!

Congrats on a great year, and keep up the wonderful work.
