OSU/Michigan...just a game???

A guy named Bob received a free ticket to the OSU/Michigan game from his company. Unfortunately, when he arrived at the stadium, he realized the seat was in the last row in the corner of the stadium way back in the South Stands-- he was closer to the Goodyear blimp than to the field.

About halfway through the first quarter, he noticed an empty seat 10 rows off the field, right on the 50 yard line. He decided to take a chance and made his way down to the empty seat. As he sat down, he asked the gentleman sitting next to him, "Excuse me, is anyone sitting here?" The man said "No."

Now, very excited to have such a great seat for the game, Bob said, "That's incredible! Who in their right mind would have a seat like this at the OSU / Michigan game and not use it?" The man replied, "Well, actually, the seat belongs to me. I was supposed to come with my wife, but she passed away. This is the first Ohio State game we haven't been to together since we got married in 1967."

"Well, that's really sad, " said Bob. "But you couldn't find a friend or relative to come with you?" The man replied, "No. They're all at the funeral."

Considering how freaky the fans are here, its par for the course.

Wow...so that means all of the games he went to with his wife were just for the game which means his love for her wasnt real and they were married by their parents because they were chosen for each other by their parents which means he is either Indian or Chinese but he was at a football game so he cant be Indian so he must be a Chinese immigrant because they had to be married young so...if the game was played in 2005 (because they havent played yet in 2006) he must be a 62 year old Chinese man!

Famed U of M coach Bo Schembechler died this morning at 77 years old.

http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=2665857

He was still heavily involved in U of M athletics, so these kids know for sure who he is. Think this will fire them up or bum them out?

Yeah, I think either way, its a new game now. It's beyond 1 and 2 now, I think anyway. Bo was U of M's best coach and was OSU's biggest rival and enemy for quite some time.

As badly as I want to see OSU lose, I just dont think UM has the juice to beat them. Im hoping though.

My dad was a U of M grad, Fresh when I popped out too, (had to be quick between college and 2 tours of 'Nam I guess!) so I was born maize and blue pretty much, whether I liked it or not
