This blog is about sports cards. I tend to only purchase cheap items so don't come hear expecting to see big money cards. My teams collections are Chicago White Sox and Michigan Wolverines. I also have a bunch of player collections.

Today’s festivities

Today about 10:30, my wife and I, and 6 other family members are heading out.  Your saying “What?  Your going to be on the road when Michigan plays Ohio today at noon?”   Ummm, HELL NO!!!!.  Let me back up a bit.

My high school alma mater is playing in the class 5a championship game tonight at 7:05 at Lucas Oil Stadium.  Which is about a 3 1/2 hour drive from here.  The plan was to watch the Michigan game here, everybody climb in the car, and then drive to Indianapolis to watch Penn play.  The problem was, we were either going to just barely make the Penn game or be late.  Well, I remembered that my wife’s sister lives about an hour away towards Indy.  So at 10:30, we are piling in 2 cars and heading to her house.  We are going to crash her living room and TV just to watch the game.  And then we should only have about a 2 hour drive to Indy after the game.  And for the record, my wife’s sister and her family are Notre Dame fans.  But they are family, so I forgive them.  At least while I watch the Michigan game, that is.

As everybody should know, this game is huge for us.  For the obvious reason, it’s been way too long since we beat Ohio.  We’re 10-2 and could very well be undefeated, but all that would be meaningless in Ann Arbor if we lose to Ohio again.  It’s a must win just for our sanity. 

But it’s also must win, because it may get us in the top #12 in the BCS poll which would give us a shot at a BCS bowl.  Which after the last few years we’ve had, would be huge for the program.

I used all my Michigan pics in my Photo Cleansing post earlier this week.  But I will leave you with this.

  1. Good luck to your guys and more importantly, LET'S GO BLUE! BEAT OHIO!

  2. Not the prettiest of wins, but I don't care. We beat Ohio and that's all that matters. Now on to a bowl game.

  3. I agree, definitely not pretty. I was really hoping to crush them after the last few years we've had. But a win is a win and we'll take it.
