Two Big Games Today

Today is an exciting day if you are a Michigan State University Spartan, which I am an alumni of, or a University of Michigan Wolverine fan. MSU has a shot at the Big Ten Conference championship if it knocks off the heavily favored Penn State Nittany Lions today at 3:30. This would be the first time in many years for this to occur, and perhaps even, not since I had gone there, oh... four or five years ago. *cough* So.... "GO GREEN!"... "GO WHITE!" Since it snowed yesterday, won't have to pick up
leaves in the yard and can maybe watch football all day. :)

The U of M Wolverines have their work cut out for them today in one of the most heated and long-standing rivalries in college football history as they face the Ohio State University Buckeyes today at 12:30. Michigan has had a dismal season under a new head coach, certainly one of the worst in the school's history. This one game could make up for the lackluster of the entire rest of the season if they can pull off an upset against their detested football foes, the Buckeyes. It's a long shot, but anything can happen in a rivalry like this. I, being a good Michigander, am obligated to root against OSU so... "GO BLUE!"

Today is a Michigan college football lovers dream day, hopefully one that will not end in a nightmare. Go State! and Go Blue!

:-( Well, at least you weren't Indiana who got pummeled by Purdue or Notre Dame who lost by one (yipee!!! :-)

I love the photo of you on the roof talking on the phone. Glad you had a good time hunting. Sorry you didn't get anything. We've been hearing plenty of gunshots here.

Two big losses on Saturday unfortunately.

I have an annual bet with an OSU alumn at my synagogue - the loser has to wear the other school's tie to synagogue the week after. I am sooooo ready to stop wearing that darn Buckeye tie!

I hear ya, Mike. The only GOOD thing that transpired Saturday was that Michigan State's loss prevented OSU from going to the Rose Bowl.

I know, Bob, but I can't desert my roots either.
