Midnight Maize Donation Drive for St.Johns Home

Its that time of year again for giving to others who have less.

As some know I work for a Boys Home called St.Johns in Grand Rapids. Its a teen home for abused and neglected and Christmas is coming so it is at this time we seek any gifts or donations. Our home has been helping abused and neglected youth in Grand Rapids for over 100+ years!

In the past some great Michigan fans and Grads have donated to our home through this blog. In the past people have donated Michigan T-shirts, Basketball Tickets, Football tickets and even money for Hot Dogs at the games. Each time we go to a Michigan event the kids have a blast. Some even mention when they leave that it was their favorite day at St.Johns. Right now we have some big Michigan fans in the house(no State! yay!).

So this Christmas we are looking for any donation to a Basketball game. Does not matter what the game. Hoping for at least 3 tickets together. Then we could take one staff and two boys. We have 9 boys total but I know getting that many together is a stretch. So we will take any number of tickets that are offered. If I get more then one offer then I will try and see if any other homes would like them(we have 5 other houses on campus)

I am also looking for a old NES or SNES for the boys. I think they would really have a good time with some classic games. Our xbox broke and haven't had the money to replace it so I have been wanting to find something that could fill some time during the winter that won't cost $100+. If anyone has a old NES or SNES with some games laying around they don't want then the boys would really love it. I could swing some funds for the shipping.

If you would like to donate anything at all then please contact me through my email at the right of the page. If you have any questions please contact me as well. I want to thank the people who have been so kind to donate in the past and thanks for taking time to read this post. Happy Holidays!

A Man for His Time and Place

Sometimes, there's a man, well, he's the man for his time and placeHe fits right in there. And that's Denard.

It has been a fun 4 years with Denard. I was on hand to witness his first touch of the football that went BOOM!

During the 2009 season it seemed like there was no way you would ever sling the ball at Michigan on a every down basis. 2010 came and UCONN visited the Big House and the rumors were proven true from practice reports... Denard Robinson was the man for his time and place. Deanrd had defenses kneeling before him week after week and he was kneeling on them. Its pretty scary to think what his stats would have looked like under RR but this is football and changes were made.

The changes kept Robinson from ever putting up Heisman numbers and asked him to make throws he can't always make but he did it all for Michigan and his team. Many players who had the success that Denard did in 2010 would have jet for the Oregon's of the world. He didn't since Michigan was always first to him.

Its a true sadness that the smile of the program for the last 4 years may not get to lead Michigan to victory on Saturday. The nerve injury in his elbow could rob him of that moment and the Pat White rushing record. I don't want to get into that because then I will cry all over my keyboard.

I can't think of to many players who have had this kind of impact on Michigan football. He is a true special talent and seeing him hit the banner one last time will have me fighting tears because I am happy for him and because I am selfish and don't want this to end. Thanks Denard for all the memories and I had such a great time making Deanrd MS Paints. Here is what Denard inspired in MS Paint form over the years. Enjoy.

The first Deanrd MS Paint. Since he can run at a speed of 85 mph it was only a matter of time before he went back to 2001 to make things right.

Denard hitting the banner. He is so fast he is a blur of course.

Maybe the best MM Denard MS Paint. This one was easy since these two(sonic and Denard) were meant for each other.

Yeah this one was out there. But Roundtree's and Denard's face alone made it worth the work.

Of course there was a sequel....

This was always a fav of mine and no one caught on that the Denards Destination was the 2009 Iowa game where he will replace himself and he won't throw the last INT and we end up winning.

This one was dumb but hey.. The Hokie farts and Kirk cries so it can't be that bad..

No doubt that this one is taking a shot at Denard but frustration sets in and you make stuff but the post ended with this...
So yeah... Best birds I ever drew had dreads.

Pretty much sums of the Zook fest of 2010.

Denard you are the man of your time and place. Thank you.

Alternate Universe Michigan Football Report

I happen to steal  Donatello's Alternate Universe portal Trans-Dimensional Portal technology hopper thing. Ours on the Technodrome needs a firmware update that Krang hasn't gotten to yet . It allows you to jump to close "timelines" or "parallel universe". I jumped a few lines over(not to far) to see how Michigan was doing and to find out I tracked down myself to get the Answers. We will just call him ShredderX.

Shredder: So did Michigan lose to Nebraska and did Denard hurt his elbow? Or was it something else he hurt?

ShredderX: No, Michigan didn't even play Nebraska.

Shredder: Huh?

ShredderX: Nebraska isn't in the Big 14. Michigan played Indiana and it was a tight game vs the winner of the last four big 14 championships but Michigan got past the Hoosiers 28 to 23.

Shredder: Wait Indiana has won the last four Big 10 or errr Big 14 Championships?

ShredderX: Yeah they have had a program of football excellence for years.... So Michigan is 5-0 after beating on the Minnesota Golden Retrievers.

Shredder: What the Golden Retrievers? I only went a few lines over and your world is nothing like mine. Does Denard even play for Michigan?

ShredderX: Oh yeah he plays for Michigan and did hurt a nerve in his leg vs Indiana so he has throw a lot the last few games and has shown to be pretty good at it. Our offensives coordinator Mike Leach has held off on his Air raid offense due to Denard not being much of a pure passer but had to unleash it since he has lost some speed with the nerve injury. He's been great. He threw five TDs vs the Retrievers and four vs Indiana. Michigan is looking like a lock for the Big 14 championship game. The other division is a bit tighter but I am guessing Central Michigan comes out of the Papa Jims Pizza Division.

Shredder: ..................

Shredder: ok ok so Mike Leach was hired? Where is Al Borges?

ShredderX: I think he is OC for North Texas. He has them doing very well. He is known for calling bubble screens all the time.

Shredder: Unbelievable...

Shredder: So... Is Northwestern any good?

ShredderX: Yeah they won the Big 14 before Indiana took over. They had the Heisman last year with Dan Persa. They took a step back after Persa left. Michigan should be able to handle them. Michigan had one of the best running attacks in the nation with Deanrd, Fitz and Austin White. With Denard hurt Michigan will just pound them on the ground with Fitz and White unless NW finds a way to shut it down like Indiana and Minnesota did.

Shredder: You couldn't write this stuff.

ShredderX: Huh?

Shredder: Nothing, throw me some info on things that have nothing to do with football.

ShredderX: Hmmm Everyone uses Windows Phones.

Shredder: What about Apple?

ShredderX: Apple? They are about to shut down. They are finished. They tried to enter and Toaster business and failed.

ShredderX: Also Burger King owns almost everything. They own ESPPN and Disney.

Shredder: Well that officially makes me want to get back to my own timeline. Thanks for the time "other" Shredder.

ShredderX: No problem. Good Journey.

So as you can see with just a few jumps of the timelines Michigan is in the drivers seat for the Big 10..ahhhh Big 14 title game. Anytime this timeline's Michigan team frustrates you... Remember there is this one that just beat on power house Indiana in another timeline and is thriving under OC Mike Leach. Or you can think about how good you have it and remember that there is a 0-9 Michigan team on some other timeline.... :MINDBLOWN:
