You call yourself a wolverine??

I am the saddest of wolverines today, despite Michigan's triumph over the evil Sparties. You see, well, I missed it. Now, it wasn't a case of me saying, "they aren't going to win, I won't watch." The problem was that I could have sworn (and still believe) that I read that the starting time was 3:30 eastern time. Sigh. It was really noon.

While I enjoyed my trip to the new IKEA in Bolingbrook, Illinois, I would have postponed the trip (or hurried back much sooner) had I known that the game started much earlier.

So, while they won, I almost feel like it didn't happen...because I didn't see it. Because I have seen ALL of their triumphs in the last I don't know how many years. Yes, I realize that this makes me sound like I believe the world revolves around me, but really for many years my life revolved around the wolverines. So for me to make such a colossal blunder is really inexcusable. I only hope my family is still speaking to me after reading this...


  • I can only imagine the horror that you felt when you realized that you missed the game!

  • I'm sure that your family will understand, though your brother probably won't let it go. He still holds it against you that you were born in Ohio.

  • I am sorry you missed the game. I feel partly responsible. I knew you were going to IKEA...I knew the game started at Noon. I should have said..."what you aren't watching the game" ...
    I figured you thought watching it would be bad luck or something. I think D and I yelled and screamed and paced enough for you too (ok mostly him not me).

  • Shoreturtle: that is too bad. I thought my brother was more understanding than that!

  • Ah, it was a great game! Don't get down on yourself for missing it but I promise you that you would have been proud :)
