Tall Paul called again.

"I read your sermon .............................................................................."

Finally I bite, "And?"

"Too long."

"Too long?"

"Yeah. ....................... You working out tomorrow?"

"No, I have a couple of meetings, probably Monday."

"Allright, Catch you there."

"Wait a minute, you got anything other than too long?"


"Ok, see you Monday."



A call from Tall Paul

Tall Paul called about Friday's post.

He must have liked it because he had nothing to say about it except,

"Why make the big deal about Michigan grads?"

"I went there ... I'm proud."

"Did you graduate?"


"Really?  I didn't think you were that smart."

"The standards were lower back then.  You didn't have to be that smart.

You just had to be arrogant."

Paul blows right past my pique and says,

"You want to check out Wolverine Historian he does great stuff."

I know!!!

"No really, you'll like it."

I know!!!

Really, the guy does a good job.

Ok, you win.

Here's about 10 minutes of great Michigan running backs behind great Michigan offensive lines, doing their thing.

From Michigan Historian.  Who does a great job ... really!!!



And while I'm at it, MGoBlog is an outstanding site if you care about Michigan athletics.


Tall Paul don't care

Tall Paul don't care.

I'm quoting here,

"As long as they're not coming for me, I don't give a damn."

"Seems kind of selfish don't ya think?" I ask provocatively.

Nothing ... then what appeared to be some thinking ... then finally,

"What else ya got."

OK, OK ..... I know when I'm whipped. 

I got Ann Arbor's own, the great Bill Kirchen on lead guitar, George Frayne (U. of M. 66) on vocals, Swingin Andy Stein on the fiddle, Dr. John A. Tichy Ph.d.(U. of M. a mess of times) and Billy C. Farlow on rhythm guitars.

I got Bobby Black (I think) on the pedal steel guitar, Buffalo Bruce Barlow on bass, and Lance Dickerson on drums.

I got that band of heroes that called themselves,

"The Lost Planet Airmen"

and their Commander ....... Cody.

Live at the 10 for 2, Free John Sinclair concert in Ann Arbor Michigan, 1971.

Hot Rod Lincoln.


I have always wanted to do that.
