This weekend I drove to North Carolina for a business meeting and passing through Ohio something interesting happened. My car has a huge Michigan decal on the back window and going through Ohio some Ohio state fan threw a glass bottle at my window. He missed but this was still a huge shock to me. I was pissed and wanted to get back but then decided to just pull up next to him and just gave him a thumbs up sign. Then as I passed him an undercover cop pulled him over and told me on the radio to pull over too. I didnt stick around to find out what happened to him since I was on a tight schedule but this incident really shocked me.
Classless Ohio State Fan
Classless and Ohio State fan in the same sentence? I have never heard such a thing.
You mean there's just one?
Was it a bottle of Makers Mark?
It was probably Grey Goose. Buckeyes love that stuff, just ask Maurice Clarett.
Grey Goose: Most overrated vodka. Belvedere is where its at.
I'll have to try it. Kettle One is also very good.
Did you know that $13 Smirnoff actually wins virtually every blind taste test with Belvedere, Goose, and Ketel One?
take this from a soviet, if you've never had Russian Standard Platinum, you've never had good vodka.
And if you mix it with anything, you should be shot.
Chilled shots with good friends and food only please.
Dill pickles and vodka shots are the way to go.
to go with the black bread, pickles and vodka shots.
Yvgeni, otkuda vyi?
Ya zanimalcya russkim yazikom b universitetye michigana i ya rabotal v moskvye.
That said, I've not spoken regularly in a while and my vocab's evaporated.
nailed it! you my friend, have obviously partied Soviet style.
Ya iz Kieva. Ya tozhe vsyo zabil. I bolshe vopshye negovaru pa Ruskye.
And I suck at writing in Russian phonetically even more.
Hey, cut that out -- how do we know you guys aren't planning a Communist Revolution or something?
Stop speaking fucking Sputnik. I'm sure you're all just talkin about pierogi's and snow and shit like that, but knock it off.
J/K of course, I love pierogi's.
drinking bottles of perfume (because it's cheaper) on the steps and dying of cirrhosis at the age of 40. Ahh, I love to drink Russian-style! Na zdorovje!
Eh, I'll stick to bourbon and Scotch.
I'm just not a big Smirnoff fan. But it has been a few years... Guess I'll just have to by a lot of vodka and drink untill I figure this one out.
ive had to many poor nights with smirnoff that its almost hard to drink
This makes me sad.
maybe, but if you drink more than a shot or two, it's definitely worth it to spend a little more because smirnoff hangover >>>> belve/goose/ketel hangover.
is the best
either that or Popov
Is that you?
There is an excellent vodka from Ukraine called Nemiroff. It's terrific, especially Nemiroff Premium. I highly recommend it if you can find it. It is sold in some places in the US.
Gentlemen, please. Finlandia Vodka or nothing, I say!
Did you just keep going or did you stop to talk to the officer and then leave? Seriously, I would be worried that an Ohio cop would ticket me for causing the other guy to throw the bottle.
i talked to the cop but did not stick around much after that. The guy had a record for something else so the copped called for back up. I could not stick around
If you could have stayed, would you have? If the cop needs backup, I say its time to leave!
A few years back I actually had to make monthly visits to one of our manufacturing facilities that was south of CBus 30 minutes. One trip was during the time as the shootings on the belt line, maybe I-270?
Anyway I remember being so paranoid about driving an M plate through that state and around the CBus area that I actually rented a car for two days that had some random state license plate. I still think it was the right decision.
You hear stories like that but never think it will happen to you and then it does. I've heard a lot of stories about those kind of things happening. On the flip side has anyone seen or heard of a Michigan fan doing that to an opposing fan?
I have one that I enjoy reminiscing about from time to time. While walking to the Big House for the Michigan Notre Dame game in 2003 my sister and I happened to walk by a frat house. There was a group of Notre Dame fans walking in front of us and while passing the frat's front yard a guy grabbed the hose and sprayed them. The Notre Dame fans confronted him but his back was covered by many of the people in the front yard. He once again sprayed them and said something I will never forger, "GO BLUE OR GO HOME". Good times.
Thats pretty funny. Aside from them getting wet nothing too bad happened but this was close to costing me a couple hundred to replace a window
Your lucky he forget to aim for the car in the middle.
I once heard a Michigan fan make a clever aside once to an opposing fan.
Really. This opposing fan was walking by this Michigan fan's house after Michigan had just defeated his (the opposing fan's) team handily, and the Michigan fan, without warning or anything, called out a clever, witty comment that was totally germane and insightful to the current situations of both teams, while still giving respectful deference to past victories of the current fallen and the likelihood of the same in the future, while also being short and memorable and making good use of metaphor.
I bet that opposing fan felt pretty awful afterward, having his (0-3) team so thoroughly yet tactfully and succinctly shown its inferiority through use of high rhetoric. I bet next time he'll think twice about supporting his team in our city now that he knows someone may say something so utterly irrefutable and funny that he has no choice but to laugh and agree, thus minimizing his (the opposing fan's) true loyalty to his team.
That wasn't Terrell Pryor throwing that bottle. I hear
he can't hit nothing either. Go Blue !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This isn't Scout or MLive.
It's funny 'cuz he can't pass, despite what that 60%+ completion percentage last year says.
I'm just wondering why you have a huge Michigan decal on your back window. I generally feel that if someone had the same decal in Ann Arbor that they would have a similar experience... especially if Tater was in town.
Why would i have such a decal on my window? is this really a question seriously? Its because i like to show people where my loyalty lies. Ive been a Michigan fan ever since i can remember this is just one of the ways a fan shows off his loyalty
I'm confused by what you mean by window, actually. Are you referring to a window on either the drivers or passengers side or to your back windshield? It was not a question of why you'd want a Michigan decal (I had UM plates when I lived in Michigan)
i have one covering the whole back windshield. its the one with little square holes in it so you can see through it. and i have 1 on each side of the rear door windows
No bottle throwing from Tater, even at the most vile OSU fan. My supraspinatus has about as many cells left as your cerebrum; it doesn't make for a very stable overhand throwing motion anymore.
driving to the 2007 osu game some osu fan stuck his fat ass out the window at my uncle. he just flipped him off and sped up.
I have a magnetic M decal on the back of my car, but since I work in C-bus I take it off during the week and put it back on during the weekend. Everytime I have left it on my car I come back to find it gone. Really annoying actually.
Where can I find one? I don't use adhesive bumper stickers because they never come off but magnets are good.
Someone bought me the one I have on my car currently, I'm not sure where they purchased it. When I buy them, I usually go Ebay.
I've seen them at MDen, among other places.
It was only after spending my hard earned coin on a fabulous MGoBlue magnet and waiting till after the 4 hour drive home from AA that I found out the hatch on my Suburban is aluminum [great for weight reduction, bad for sticking magnets]...so I have this massive magnet stuck to my fridge...now my kids insist that the cheer is not "Go Blue!" but "M Go Blue!" as per the ever present fridge magnet [have you ever tried to disuade a five year old from something they already know...]
so you pretty much didn't listen to the cops? lol
It doesn't have to be a Buckeye fan. When I was much younger, my family came upon a road work crew, who were actually all sitting around smoking joints, with no flagger, and when my dad went around, one of these potheads decided it'd be a great idea to throw his bottle at the car. Smashed on the window at my sister's seat (rear passenger) and FORTUNATELY did not break it, which would have of course cut the both of us all up. I'm glad, because dad was able to keep calm and drive on. These dudes were so baked that if they'd hurt us, and dad had gotten out, I'm afraid they'd have killed him.
That said, the cop probably just wanted to make sure you were alright and find out if you wanted to press charges.
Most people don't want to fight when they're baked. It was probably the alcohol.
Quite possibly. Either way I remember some lady following us till we stopped and saying she would back us if we wanted to sue, but Dad just wanted to get out of there.
I am not one (in my more mature years) to seek out a fight, but in an instance such as that would find it hard to pass up. Your Father is far smarter than I am and did the right thing, especially with kids in the car. +1 to you, for your Fathers good example.
i live in northeast ohio, and whenever i go to columbus (3-4 times a year), i do two things:
1. quickly plant my 'M' hat on my head.
2. quickly remove my 'Go Blue' decal from my back window.
i've never gotten anything but a good-natured 'what is THAT?' with my hat, and i'm usually much sharper-tongued than whatever frat boy that had the nerve to speak to me, however my car sitting in a lot...eh.
