Born in Lansing, quickly moved to East lansing, went to East Lansing HS. Luckily, my parents met at U of M in grad school and raised me right. Dad worked for Gov. Blanchard when I was born and a boss from his office sent a stuffed wolverine with a music box in its stomach to the hospital (it still plays The Victors, though a little slow and warbly now). With a big fuzzy music-playing block M-wearing wolverine in your crib from day 1, how could you stray? 18 years later we were off to Ann Arbor. Snuck him into the Big House for the 2003 OSU game and Breaston rubbed his belly after we rushed the field.
