We were recently approached by a national magazine of considerable repute with a simple request: Tell us about your best Michigan Ohio State Traditions. More importantly tell us about your experiences traveling to and from THE GAME and/or tailgating for it.
With Nebraska joining the Big Ten next year, the 2010 edition of THE GAME may well be the last time many of our cherished get togethers and crazy stories take place in the traditional November time slot. We're not oblivious to those implications, and frankly if things change it will be really sad to see them go. As a result, we can't think of a better time to celebrate those traditions than right now. (Remember folks, even though I'm on record as supporting the changes that have tohappen with Big Ten expansion, I'm not immune to the sentiment. I love tailgating for THE GAME. I love the atmosphere. I love the anticipation. There are a lot of wonderful thigns that will be lost if THE GAME is moved, and that is one of the reasons we're asking for your stories.)
If you've got a story about a lobster boil tailgate for good luck (I've been to it);a "WTF just happened!?" trip to Columbus; or any great, funny or downright scary experience related to THE GAME we want to hear about it. As a bonus, you might find your name and story in a major publication when the game arrives. Provided you want it there (Remember, you have to sign off it!). So let share some memories, tell some stories and get ourselves ready for the 2010 Michigan Football Season!
