The Big House

Just like every man I have ever loved, Michigan’s rocky start to the football season is on track to break my heart. Ok! Ok!

And even when the team you are supporting does their best, it is sometimes not good enough which is really difficult for a fanatic to accept. Thus I’ve told myself time and time again that I’m not going to get sucked in by Michigan sporting events. Yet, I somehow found myself in that trap leading up to the Michigan v Ohio State […]
