  • ESPN College GameDay In East Lansing!

    Posted by Mojo

    Here's the scoop on the visit!

    EAST LANSING, Mich. - ESPN College GameDay, celebrating its 26th season, will make its sixth appearance in East Lansing, Mich., for Saturday's Michigan State-Ohio State game. ESPN College GameDay - featuring Chris Fowler, Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard, David Pollack and Samantha Steele - airs Saturday from 9-10 a.m. on ESPNU and from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. on ESPN. The remote set will be located north of Beaumont Tower.

    ESPN College GameDay returns to the Michigan State campus for the second year in a row, as the broadcast crew witnessed from the sidelines Kirk Cousins' 44-yard Hail Mary pass to Keith Nichol on the final play of regulation to give the 15th-ranked Spartans a 37-31 victory over No. 4 Wisconsin.

    The Spartans are 2-3 when GameDay visits East Lansing (1997: lost to Michigan, 23-7; 1999: defeated Michigan, 34-31; 2004: lost to Notre Dame, 31-24; 2005: lost to Penn State, 31-22; and 2011: defeated Wisconsin, 37-31). It should be noted that Lee Corso is 4-1 picking the winner when GameDay visits the MSU campus, so Spartan fans should keep their fingers crossed when he selects his headgear (Sparty or Brutus Buckeye) on the remote set Saturday.

    Fans wishing to attend Saturday's ESPN College GameDay may pay $15 to park in the Grand River Avenue ramp (Ramp 6 opens at 6:30 a.m.). Those fans should note that tailgating cannot begin prior to 9 a.m. when all other campus lots open for game-related parking.

    Gates to the ESPN College GameDay compound - located north of Beaumont Tower - open Saturday at 7 a.m.

    Set-up for Saturday's program will start Wednesday night, as ESPN personnel will begin to prepare the stage and demonstration field areas near Beaumont Tower.

  • Bad Lip Reading - Hunger Games

    My wife is taking a sign language class.  They viewed some videos to showcase how lip readers sometimes mistakenly read lips.  She turned me on to this series of videos.  Basically it is mistaken words, contrary to what is actually spoken.
