Quote of the Day

"If he got that bunt down, I would have drilled the next guy. Play to win against Villanova."

-- Billy Wagner, after a University of Michigan player tried to lay a bunt down in an exhibition game.

Personally, I think Wagner should have beaned the next guy anyway. This is Michigan we're talking about. They must be dealt with harshly.

usually you're on the money, man - but this time you really crossed the line. I will not take lightly these insults to the University of Michigan! curses and poxes upon you!

Sorry. As a proud alum of THE Ohio State University, I have no choice in the matter.

As a Michigan fan living in Columbus, I can tell you that Shyster's thoughts are pretty tame compared to the rest of the people around here. I grew up in Boston and thought we were a little nuts about Sox/Yanks, but these guys take it to another level. See link below for an interesting take...

Yeah, it's a bit insane here in Cbus. I have to cop to being a fan of the Dead Schembechler's, however. I have a framed and autographed poster from the 2005 Hate Michigan Rally hanging on my office wall. Bo Biafra (lead singer) is a visonary who, sadly, is not appreciated in his own time . . .

will you join me in a chorus of the victors after rich rodriguez leads the wolverines to victory this fall in columbus, securing the big 10 championship for the Good Guys (i.e. the ones in maize and blue)?

Shyster said...

I can't make that bet until I know where Terrelle Pryor is signing . . .;-)

Actually, I take that back. Someone will have to remind me of this come November, but if Michigan beats Ohio State, I will post a total ode to maize and blue -- pictures, logos, the lyrics to Victors, the whole nine yards -- without a trace of bitterness or irony. I am THAT certain that Buckeyes will win.

Dude said...

most pundits were THAT certain the bucks would beat florida in that bcs championship as well...

that said, i'll be sure to remind you if UM pulls it off. otherwise, you probably won't hear about it again.

Shyster said...

Oh, this isn't punditry on my part, it's blind partisanship. I was certain OSU would beat Michigan every year during the Cooper years too, all evidence to the contrary. Blind, impassioned rooting interests are funny that way.

Leave it to billy wagner to say something stupid, he always does. "Play to win against Villanova?" Now if he said "play to win against THE ohio state University," that would have been funny.
