Yeah, They Played Saturday.....
It's no secret that I BLEED Maize and Blue!
My family bleeds Maize and Blue!
MOST of my friends bleed Maize and Blue!
I've had season tickets for over 35 years!
Last year Michigan hired a new head coach, hired a whole new coaching staff, and adopted a whole new offensive scheme. They stumbled to an awful 3-9 season, and lost to all of their top rivals.
Michigan is one of those teams that people just LOVE to hate.
There doesn't seem to be any gray areas either, great success brings a bit of jealosy, thats why most people outside of New York HATE the Yankees!
Over the years, whenever Michigan loses to one of their rivals, the very second the game ends my phone starts to ring...And ring...And ring!
Saturday was no different! The Sparties were crawling out of the woodwork!
Now I don't know if all this hoopla is because Michigan lost, or it's because Mr. Knowitall's team lost. You don't think that my blog name was picked at random do you?
I sort of have this reputation ya know, real or imagined, People just LOVE to prove me wrong. I'm like a gun-slinger from the old west, I have this bulls-eye imbedded in the middle of my back, and people are just waiting for me to slip up.
Oh I'm sure some of it is warranted, being right all the time does have it's drawbacks. One of my "Galenisms" is...'I don't know EVERYTHING, but what I DON"T know ain't worth knowing'! Yeah...I know. Pretty egotistical eh? Well...? What am I supposed to do..LIE? If I know the answer, I know the answer! Here's another 'Galenism', "I'm NOT smarter than anybody else, I'm just Older"!!
That is absolutely the truth...hehehehe. It's no secret that I love to have fun, and that means having fun with my own personna. After all...'If I'm so damned smart, why ain't I RICH'?
Michigan is still rebuilding, they have a Quarterback that was in High School last Christmas. They were not expected to go undefeated. They were not expected to start the season 4-1. They are not expected to go to a BCS Bowl. They lost Saturday. They will lose probably this Saturday as well. As they will lose several other Saturday's this year. But make no mistake...Michigan WILL return to football prominence!!
They are the WINNINGEST team in NCAA history
They have won 42 Big Ten Championships
They have won 11 National Titles
Until last year, they had 43 straight winning seasons
And until last year they went to 34 straight bowl games!
The Michigan Winged Helmet is THE most recognized Sports Icon in the WORLD!
Hail To The Victors is The GREATEST fight song EVER written...
Every dog has it's day...Get your licks in now.
I've seen Michigan lose many many times over the years, and I'll be disappointed again I'm sure. But one thing is certain...The Cream ALWAYS rises to the top!!
To all of those that texted me Saturday, to all of those that felt necessary to rub it in on my previous post....Thank You Very Much! I'm sure I deserved it....
