Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!

Be safe, have fun and see you in a couple days.

Yost

PS I looked for a Michigan-themed Christmas vid on YouTube for this post and couldn't find squat. So for shits and giggles, I tried a Tosu search. And, well, let's just say Buckeye fans are a different breed...

First the Bitch does not know Troy Smith's jersey number. Every Blue fan knows it was #10, Bitch!!!!!

Then her "companion" hurts herself or is it her. Then Ethel is screaming for their poodles. Wow I am glad you did not find any Michigan stuff on YOUTUBE. The RichRod ERA begins now!!!

Taking the video is one thing. (I shoot some for shits and giggles on occasion), but to then post it on You Tube takes on a whole new meaning of stupid.


However the christmas lights to music, I would love to see that to the victors!

Merry Christmas to each of you here on the Mzone. Friend and foe and everyone in between! GO BLUE!

BARman said...

Wow. That was painful.

TitleIX said...

Merry Xmas to all. Safe travels, happy times and all that.

Me?
well--this will give you a sense of things (at least when I won't be working)

That second video is awful. Hopefully she made it just so it would be posted on this site.

Beat Florida.

Feelin' Blue said...

You did a good job of that yourself yesterday, paulie.

Hopefully we can do that in Orlando. If not, well, it's going to be a long offseason.

Katie said...

Tom Brady on 60 Minutes....mmmmmmmmmm

zen wizard said...

Zoning regulations--and the boundaries of good taste--or, should I say, "Good taste, as codified in zoning regulations"--prevent U. of M. alumni in Grosse Pointe from such ostentatious lighting displays.

Katie said...

Not only is he hot, he is down to earth, humble and unselfish. Nice. They could have left Charlie Weis out of the show, why ruin it with his opinion? LOL

Katie said...

Happy Hanukkah T9!!

Joe said...

That poor woman should never sing again. Never.

Katie said...

This is boring. HA! I even tried to start a conversation at MGoBlog last night. (ignored) Football season, come back!!!! :o) At least my sons play Madden, so we had a good conversation about the 3-3-5 Stack (which they don't use in Madden, they prefer the Nickel) They do however use the cover 2 and they knew what the Tampa 2 was! I should have asked for Madden for Christmas, maybe then I could entertain myself! :o)

Killing My Liver said...

That second video is very unsettling. In a "silence of the lambs" Buffalo Bill way. Creepy.

Have a holiday, everyone.

Joshua said...

It sings the Christmas Carol or it gets the hose.

Joshua said...

"They could have left Charlie Weis out of the show, why ruin it with his opinion?"

Katie,
with the exception of having Giselle come give me a foot massage and feed me grapes while i watched the interview, the inclusion of Charlie was the best thing that could've happened. When he left there was all of this "Oh no, how will Tom do without Weiss in the background" speculation, and how we'd see Peyton prove he was truly head and shoulder's above our future president.

Instead, we see Weiss give rise to "Three and Out Jesus", and Tom is on the verge of an undefeated season and breaking Peyton's single season TD mark. Man I love revilling in the misery and accomplishments of others which i had no direct part in creating. It's truly what gives my life meaning. :0

Katie said...

Excellent point Joshua! Merry Christmas!

I am having withdrawals........the guys at MgoBlog told me to go back to the kitchen and make sandwiches...LMAO! I did get a little conversation out of them though. I get to go spend the evening with my brother who is a huge Michigan fan, so I am sure I will get a good dose tonight!

Joshua said...

I meant "reveling". God i hate it when i misspell wurds. ;)

Katie said...

Here is some entertainment for those who need a little somethin, somethin.

whetstonebuck said...

Katie,

That video gave "disturbing" a whole new meaning to me. What the hell was that? Is this part of the mainstream culture that passed me by?

Who is the cartoon figure? Is the dude someone famous I should recognize. And the song...? Has it replaced 99 bottles of beer on the wall and no one told me?

I'm so confused.

Katie said...

ROFL, Sorry, I am so bored! I have no clue, but as my son and I were perusing You Tube, I was mildly entertained, however disturbed might be a fair way to describe that. :P

whetstonebuck said...

K,

Are you serious about the Mgoblog boys dissing you?

Katie said...

The guy that posts as anonymous said, Katie, Katie, Katie, go back to the kitchen and make us some sandwiches....LOL! But the other guys were friendly enough, I am sure that they didn't take me too seriously, so it is easier to ignore the chick who sounds like she might not have a clue. And after that You tube post I just made, I wouldn't blame anyone for not taking me seriously....ROFL!

whetstonebuck said...

You never know who "anonymous" is over there. Half the time they're hi-jacking each other's nickname.

During the coaching search someone should have thrown a hugh net over that site.

Katie said...

Oh my , during the coach's search, it was downright scary! I tried to avoid it. I would go over to see if I could glean a bit of info, but it was so insane I couldn't stay! It seemed that there were a number of students over there at the time. Normally, the comments over there is strictly football and they are serious about it! Not during the Coach's search!!

zen wizard said...

I'm concerned that the jerseys on the Xmas tree pose a fire hazard.

Are OSU jerseys flame retardant?

(Insert tasteless joke mocking the handicapped and the OSU curriculum HERE.)

whetstonebuck said...

Zenster,

Ask the UM players. They've been burned by those jerseys for a few years now.

Katie said...

*Zing* Whets you are always on the ball!

Katie said...

Merry Christmas, A couple of You Tube Christmas clips for your enjoyment. The first is Merry Christmas from OSU football (they seemed slightly confused) and then a light show to music.....with a slight variation that I had not seen before......:o)

Katie said...

Well it is a damn good thing I don't run this blog, my taste in entertainment sucks! LOL!!

Where are all the peeps? I had to subject my family to football talk, which ended up with me betting my brother that Michigan would beat Florida, my mother was not pleased at the wager (relatively large...LOL) but hey, I am a poor grad student!! This of course means Michigan must now win!!! GO BLUE!!! (and please God, let Hart and Henne be healthy!)

whetstonebuck said...

Katie,

Your family doesn't stand much of a chance with you. It's either hospital/nursing stories or Michigan football. Don't both of those subjects end in hospice?

I hope you win your bet. You must have been imbibing a little too much.

Off to the big city.

Katie said...

Unfortunately I can not blame the bet on booze. As for the subject matter of Michigan ending up as hospice, I should expect as much from a tOSU lover!! I have a feeling that there is good chance our guys will come home with the victory. Thus the bet. My family would agree with you. I am boring. :o)

whetstonebuck said...

If you come home with a victory just think of the story line; not to mention the cashola.

Joshua said...

Cashola? is that some kind of greek pastry? Or is it a nut?

whetstonebuck said...

No, no.

"Cashola" is a spanglish term used at the U.S./Mexico border.

Translation: "Oh, look, you dropped some money. Howdy Amigo, you and your shipment are welcome."

Joshua said...

Ah, now it all makes sense

(as to why people in Cancun looked at me funny when i tried to pay with cannolies.)

whetstonebuck said...

Joshua,

It is an egregious continental faux pas to pay or play with one's cannolies in Hispanic territories: a lack of machismo if ever there was one.

Sheesh, you're an International incident waiting to happen.

Joshua said...

International incident, international phenomenon, I guess it's all in your perspective.

It's times like these I wonder what my life would be like had I never quit Menudo.

whetstonebuck said...

What's all this tripe concerning menudo?

Killing My Liver said...

I see what you did there ...

carl tabb said...

What in the fuck is wrong with people? Seriously, what the fuck can be going thru one's head doing something like that with the Christmas tree and then singing a grievously ridiculous song like that? I'd always thought I was a diehard UM fan. My wife has cussed me out on many occasions for screaming at the TV and generally going ballistic during yet another one of UM's meltdowns. If that's what true diehard fans do then I'll proudly proclaim that I am not a diehard.
Nice call on Troy's number, too. Gaah!

Joshua said...

On todays episode of "Get to Know Your Fellow Commentors Better: "What's all this tripe concerning Menudo?"

Well, Whets, i'm glad you asked. Little known fact about me: I was the first non-latino member of Menudo. Yup, it's true. You can look it up, it's part of my fake autobiography, so it has to be true.

Quick synopsis:
I left the band over creative differences at age 15, and I'm truly shocked you missed the E! True Hollywood Story about it.

For awhile after I hung out with young hollywood and these two guys Brian and Tom, right up until they changed their first names to be like me (I used to go by Corey)and I got bored with them. Fuckin' Haim and Feldmen, they got what they deserved after writing me out of "License to Drive." All because Heather Graham wanted me. Bastards.

Until recently I was the frontman for a ska/punk influenced Debbie Gibson cover band with Fred Claus ( and not that stupid Disney p.o.s., but the original. He's Santa's alcoholic brother and he manages the Speedway down the street.) Anyway, the guy plays a mean bass. The band broke up after we had a dispute about the name. I preferred "Banana Hammock Afro" while Fred championed "The Fisting Midgets". Such a shame- we were gonna be HUGE!

Anyway, I still get royalties from the Menudo stuff, so be sure to run right out and buy a cd- if i find you pirating that shit off Limewire I'm gonna send the Coreys after your ass. And they'll do it to man, they'll do it.

So there you go, now you know what all the tripe about Menudo was.

Ps. Little known fact about former Menudo memeber Ricky Martin: He's not gay, he just likes the way it tastes.

Katie said...

Who is Menudo? :P

On a different note:

Did you know that it is worth the extra $4 a month to have roadside service on your automobile insurance policy? Who'd a thunk? I am such a cheapskate, and I paid the price, TWICE in the last week! Meh.

Joshua said...

Oh yeah, I almost forgot- I dated Whitney Houston for awhile, too but I broke her heart. Yeah, remember when she used to be hot? My bad. How was I supposed to know she'd go ruunning to Bobby brown and start smoking crack?

Don't forget kids- Crack is Wack!

Joshua said...

Katie, $4.10 every six months. about 2 cents a day. shit, I carry it just so i don't have to change a flat when it's cold. Call a tow truck and let them do it!

and who's Menudo? seriously? all that and I get who's Menudo? BAH!

Katie said...

Yeah, well, guess who got to change a tire (twice!) in this butt ass cold weather? Yeah. Me. You can add it to my quote, because I will be getting it!

And, if I admit to knowing who Menudo is, doesn't that date me? :P

whetstonebuck said...

For the culturally devoid, Menudo is a band of some type.

For the bon vivant, menudo is the elixir of life.

Josh posts take three:
.....and ACTION!

Word! Just talked to San Diego Girl and she's meeting me to watch the CMU game. Football and women. Life is grand....Merry Christmas to Me!

MGoBlue93 said...

Joshua...

Q: How do you know if your roommate is gay?

A: His dick tastes like shit.

zen wizard said...

Menudo is specially prepared stomach of the bovine. It was also a Latin pop group that had a Vienna Boys' Choir strategem of dropping singers as soon as--well, as soon as their testicles dropped. Ricky Martin is probably the most notable former member.

The epicurean culinary delight preceeded the group--perhaps, by centuries.

Purportedly, it cures hangovers and has an aphrodisical quality.

Mexicans regard it as a delicacy and reserve a special night for its preparation and consumption.

I don't know about the hangovers, but my personal theory on most homespun aphrodisiacs is that they are "the placebo effect." In other words, if I could hypnotize you and make you believe a gelatin pill was an aphrodisiac--after I gave you one, you would get a chubb. Oh, well--maybe it really cures hangovers, and once you kill the cow you had just as soon eat the whole thing.

Katie said...

My goodness information overload on who Menudo is!


Joshua, who is San Diego girl? Did I give my approval? :P

Katie said...

Go Big Ten! I did my undergraduate at Western Michigan, and CMU was a huge rival, so it makes it even easier to root for Purdue. Of course, the chances of Purdue losing this game are slim to none, wait, I thought that about the AppState game too! HA!

Katie said...

This is an interesting article on the coach's searches that have taken place. Nice to see that ESPN gave us a passing grade and calls R2 an "A" hire, with an overall grade of "B". The fact that we were given a "C" for the process is ironic since ESPN played a hand in that debacle!

MGoBlue93 said...

Moo U. set the standard for losing to mid majors by dropping two in a row to CMU back in the day.

Looked like PU started celebrating too early... so even though they won, who wasn't rooting for CMU's QB to match Tebow's feat this season?

Katie said...

93, I have to admit, he did capture my vote. Also interesting that CMU's coach has a second interview with WVU this week.

Joshua said...

Wow. And I thought i might be disturbed.

It sings the Christmas Carol or it gets the hose.

-Former Menudo member out!

MGoBlue93 said...

If WVU feels used and abused from losing coaches, they need to take a look at CMU and see the turnover there... and CMU just keeps winning; WOW!
