Blue/White prep has begun!

This weekend marked the beginning of the preparation for the Blue White scrimmage - recipes have been reviewed and selected - baking and shopping has begun.

We got a ton of supplies and ingredients - The Blue White game tailgate doesn't really have a specific "theme" other than "practice" - it's when we try out new recipes and equipment.

Suz' parents got her a small generator - so we're officially electric (boogie oogie oogie oog).

We got a new brownie and bar cookie book - with a lot of great recipes - Suz has already made 2 recipes from the book and we have many more planned.

The Blue/White is a "joint' tailgate with the Diesel Tailgate - our main responsibilities are snacks, desserts and a group beverage. Suz' is generally in-charge of the group beverage - she has been kicking around a few ideas during the "off" season - and I'm always ready to taste-test.

Blue White is April 22nd this year -

it's time...

to start planning/preparing for Blue/White 2006! Okay, the game is 2.5 months away - but HEY! it's only 2.5 months away! "Regular" football - other than the Pro-Bowl is now over.

We've purchased some new cookbooks/magazines filled with ideas and techniques.

I also have to work on the website - lot's of "blank spaces" to be filled.

I believe that we will commence baking this weekend. Yippee!

I really have to stay away from these negative karma posts


I read this on in the PSU football forum - and I just had to share...

Think Bud Light "Real Men of Genius" TV and Radio Ads... got the voice? Now read on. "Bud Light presents Real Men of Genius" (Reaaaaal Men Of Genius)

Today we salute you, Mr. Delusional Michigan Fan (Mr. Delusional Michigan Faaaaaan!)

Season after season, year after year, you try to justify your absurdly high preseason ranking (clutching at straws!)

Season after season, year after year, you scramble to make futile attempts at damage control when the Wolverines lose to a grossly inferior opponent (How'd Northwestern score fifty fouuuuuur?)

Inevitably, you'll bring up the past, and boast of National Championships won 40 years before you were born (those were the daaaaaays!)

You will point out that you have more wins than any other program as though that is relevant to the current season (been playing since the 1870s!)

Go on, ignore that home loss to your arch rivals in the regular season finale and continue to believe that you'll defeat your bowl opponent with striking ease (we'll win by thirteeeeeeey!)

So crack open an ice cold Bud Light, oh Emperor of Excuses,and take comfort knowing that when you don't finish in the top 25,you'll be back to number three when the preseason polls come out next year (Mr. Delusional Michigan Fan!)
