THE BIG MIKE ROAD SHOW - 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY PICS ON PG 769


Recommended Posts

*Big Mike warned everybody that he was about to make a run to the top, and backed it up! Adam goes down next!

 

Bring it on Big Man....I picked up Pierre Garcon because the way he played last week. And 1/2 my team is the Colts.....so lets play. Yeah, in two weeks I will lose, but I don't care.

I have to say, when you let me know it was up, I went, checked it out real quick, then jumped ship because I had so much going on! I was terrified I had missed so much more between then and now, but alas, only a few pages remained! Either I can read reallllly fast, or you are slacking!

 

Again, it was great meeting you! You are like a long lost friend - just so easy to talk to! I am so glad we got to meet up. Hopefully next year we have the same luck!

 

And grrr... I am so jealous about your upcoming Orlando ventures...lol. (Not like I wasn't just there...tee hee) You must promise to ride Sheikra for me. Since I didn't get to... someone I know has to!! I cannot wait to see the PTR's from there! It will make 2011 seem so much further away, but I love it all!

I went to Kiddieland on Saturday and it really was a great family park. It will be sad to see the place go leaving Great America as the only big park in the area. Little Dipper was actually my 50th coaster! I knew Griffin had picked up the treasure hunt card, but I double checked and found that the other side to the sticky tape was still there. Very nice report Big Mike!

It's always sad to see a park go, especially if you've been there before! Thanks for the shout-out Mike! Great Report!

 

I knew Griffin had picked up the treasure hunt card, but I double checked and found that the other side to the sticky tape was still there. Very nice report Big Mike!

 

So THATS where the other side of tape was! I thought it only had one!

Were you really wondering that or just saying that?

Ready, GO!

 

The Big Mike Road Show is ready

The Big Mike Road Show is smooth

The Big Mike Road Show will take control

And stomp all over you!

 

 

 

I have a couple questions for you Big Mike...

 

1. Do you plan on doing one of TRP trips next year? Mainly the Mainland Europe, or the UK Tour?

 

2. Do you have any plans set in stone for when you come to Michigan this month?

Great tr as always big mike. Looking forward to playing my 1st ducky game soon. Also how about some betting tips like you seemed to do last year.

 

Who is Big Mike not to take care of a Valuable Big Mike Reader request???

 

 

OK, I know lots of you love to make some extra cash on Big Mike's LOCK CITY picks, so here we go again this year!!!

 

 

Week #4 BIG MIKE LOCK CITY PICK OF THE WEEK:

 

 

CHARGERS OVER STEELERS getting 6 1/2 points!!

 

 

LT comes back this week and Parker goes out this week, big changes! Pitt has looked terrible all year, take the bolts and rack up the cash courtesy of Big Mike!

Woo Hoo!!!!

 

More cheers for good luck for Team Big Mike!!!

 

 

Ok, to answer some questions:

 

 

Freestyle Park's trip report is way off! Check on page #1 of this thread to see where I am up to! I think iit is safe to say that report will be months away, but I am trying!

 

 

My plans for MI are very tight, fly in Friday, fly out Saturday! I want to see my step son play football and celebrate my step daughters birthday! Somewhere in between that, we need to hit the two Jeepers I still need, especially since one is in the next town over!

 

 

TPR trips for 2010 looks like I should be able to meet up with two of the USA tours, and the most likely trip will be Mainland Europe.

 

I am sure the UK trip will be as awesome as when we went in 2006 though!!!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

49ers Defense. 31 Points. R U F***en Serious? My team is cursed.

 

Edit: I wrote a poem/cheer to celebrate the happenings of today. Here we go! Ok!

 

Today was the day.

Our chances for a win were good.

I think Big Mike even thought that we could.

 

Then Sunday came and the day started well,

Before the Rams took the field and shot it all to hell.

Thirty-Five to zero they lost to the Niners,

And sealed our fate as the Wood Coaster League Whiners!

 

But wait is that Greg Jennings I see?

200 yards receiving and 3 touchdowns on Monday night, could it be?

What do you mean Ryan Grant got shut down?

I thought Big Mike had won and took me to town.

 

Are you saying my sad team has finally won?

I see why people say this Fantasy Football is fun!

Thank you Big Mike for this unexpected win,

Even if it took an act of god and me giving up all sin!

Not looking to good right now. You picked the worst possible game to go against the Steelers.

Hey, don't you dare bet on next Sunday's game unless you pick the Titans. Peyton is going to pick apart Titans defense like he has with the past four games.

 

That being said, haven't checked out the points yet for Sunday. Hope I have a nice cushion with only one or two players playing tonight against BM. Hope Farve has a field day and throws to Berrian a lot and gives him 3 touch downs.

OK, before we get to the pictures, lets just take a quick glance at the Big Mike Fantasy Football Invitational standings!!

Clue #1

019.JPG.b8553e511a199dcac2f74b09fa6d7f91.JPG

Randi was kind enough to show me a Big Mike cheer, swing dance style!!!

 

Woo, she can really move that nice body!

 

It's times like this that I really love being Big Mike :)

Big Mike likes bonding with new friends!

015.JPG.e0b045b1e564d850337551f4e8b3668b.JPG

As most of you know, Big Mike has 10 cheerleaders for his fantasy football team, and they are called The Show Stoppers!!!

 

Big Mike wants to meet them all!

 

There will be a trip report with Jo and Patrick coming up next week, and I will see Sue this weekend at PPP, and hopefully Brian at the end of the month.

 

Today though, it is Randi, my swing dancer specialist!!

This is Randi (frozenflames)

091.JPG.50f7444b90c88d727c8d3448ac500c33.JPG

The awesome thing is this park is open all year round according to the sign, so if you met Big Mike, found the duckies, and put up a banner, this is your chance to qualify!!!
