I Don't Hate Michigan State!

2014-10-12

Of course, I will never be able to convince a Spartan of that. You see, it's tough (and fun) being a Wolverine because so many consider us their number one rivalry... And, for us it's obviously the Hill-Jacks down south first, the Drinking Irish second and then Sparty. Heck, I would even go so far as to write that The Spartans are my second favorite team next to Big Blue.

Now, I do understand the misunderstanding because things are different for any Michigan Alum that came from Out-of-State. They didn't have the mass amounts of friends that went Green. They didn't have the wild times in Lansing growing up, like we did. They don't have the respect (for that kind of drinking, that amount of couches burning and the women ... the women).

So, that's the deal; as hard as it is to get through the crazy anger and resentment (see pics) I see in most of my buddies, after being pounded year, after year, after year ... What's that you say? Basketball? I started at THE U in 1991, with the Fab Five - so I'm good with that too. Go Green: as long as it's not against the Empire that's built in Maize and Blue!!!! Fight song, please.
