There would have been a picture here, but doesn't seem to work well using an iPad.

Thanks Ray. Not sure that I can be called a Michigander though... I've never lived there...

Just a UMich fan. I grew up in Illinois right on the Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin boarder. Went to a Wisconsin game once as a kid, and those Badgers are quite the unruly bunch. I can see supporting your team and not supporting the competitor, but because we were there while visiting relatives and weren't cheering for Wisconsin (we weren't cheering for EITHER team) we had food and drinks thrown at us. Come on, we weren't cheering for anyone. Hated them ever since. I grew up with uncles that were die-hard Iowa Hawkeye fans. They were so obsessive that it was obnoxious. Hate the Hawkeyes too (and I have lived my entire post-college life in Iowa). I went to a college in Illinios (Western Illinois University) and while our football team was good, our other sports stunk, and we weren't on the same playing field (pun intended) as a Big10 school or anything, so I cheered on my team, but watched others on TV. I couldn't cheer for the Illinois Illini because they were terrible at football, and basketball season hadn't kicked in. This was back in 1993 and Michigan was always on because they were winning... They were from the midwest, and I had a few encounters with people from Michigan who were very polite and nice, unlike those stupid Badgers or Hawkeyes, and their team was enjoyable to watch, unlike the Illini. So after watching them a lot, they grew on me and Ive been a fan ever sense. Through the good times, the bad times, and everything in between.

Hey, I am in your lovely state by the way. Although I am almost as far away from you as a person can get. I am working in Harrison, NY and staying (stayed) in New Rochelle, NY. I fly out to Atlanta this afternoon though.

Root beer for me would have been good.

I am now sitting in the Westchester County Airport's "holding corral." If you've never been here, picture a good sized room with several "doors." These doors lead down hallways to more doors. Those doors open and almost all of them (all but 1 maybe) just leads to outside where you walk on a painted path to the steps to your plane. Just 1 jet bridge, and no idea of which gate, I mean door will be yours for your flight.

As "rinky-dink" as it is, and the fact that you have to walk a little distance outside to get to the rental cars (they used to be right next to the baggage claim area but still outside until they "expanded"), I like flying in and out of there. So easy and convenient. MUCH better than fighting the drive to Laguardia and that stupid place.

Off to Atlanta for the next leg of the trip.

I was actually making fun of myself. I am a University of Michigan fan, but I live in Iowa....


Ahhhh, now I see the inflection... I don't take this stuff too seriously (sports), so all in fun and no offense meant to anyone - I have an aunt that lives, eats, and breathes Lakers and at 80 can spew stats all day long.

So what part of Atlanta are you going to and for how long?

Scott, I know you're wearing a red and black hat with a big G on it while you type. Fess up!

Woah. I am pretty much in your backyard (no need to go check your backyard). I am staying in John's Creek. I have a full day ahead of me tomorrow (Wednesday) and then right after work I am driving to Evans, GA to visit my sister and her family. I am then staying near ATL airport on Thursday night and flying back home Friday morning.

Next trip I will look you up and see if we can grab a bite or something.

Please do. I could use some input on what to do in the basement.

Travel safe!

OK, you got me...

Actually, I'm pretty well surrounded at work by G and GT logos - one more would be overkill wink
