I live in Ohio. For me the best thing about wearing my Michigan gear is knowing that everyone I encounter would sort of like to say something to my face but i'm 6'5" and weigh about 245 so they just nod their head and say shit under their breath behind my back.
Best Thing about wearing M apparell
(Of the 245, not the Ohio part.)
My 6'6" 160lb frame would almost certainly have the opposite effect.
My 6' 4'' 165 frame agrees with you.
You guys need a gym membership. Lift my brothas, lift.
A few years ago I was in Columbutt on business and went to Lifetime Fitness for a workout wearing all Michigan gear. There was one guy who I swear had smoke coming out of his ears. He was seething as he followed me from station to station and then into the lockerroom.
The problem for him was, I'm 6'3" 240 and he was about 5'10". All I could do was laugh at him.
drink chocolate milk after workouts. Protein and energy needed to rebuild and bulk up.
My 5'8" 155 frame is jealous of you haha.
I mean is this even possible??
I'm 5'11' and 210, and live in Dayton, and they usually say something just loud enough I can hear and understand them... it's actually kinda funny, because I'm not intimidating looking at all (glasses usually do that)... Maybe it's the gear that's intimidating.
EDIT: wait, what do I mean maybe... of course it is
Cleveland area. Over Thanksgiving break (the night before the game) I went to the movies sporting my Denard jersey. They wouldn't accept my Mcard and said I would have to pay for an adult ticket. I was about to blow up, but instead decided to calmly ask the employee where she went to school. She was a senior in high school and had not been accepted into OSU, but planned on transferring there after a semester elsewhere, or some bullshit like that.
At that point, I realized it wasn't worth my time so I paid full price. However, I made sure to forewarn her that she ought to start respecting Michigan if she ever wants a good relationship with future employers.
I knew OSU fans had issues when a middle-aged man was throwing a water bottle from his car at a 12 year-old boy in his Michigan shirt (me). And that's what's best about wearing Michigan gear in Ohio: Just wearing an article of clothing can cause a substantially older person to act like an immature, insecure jackass.
Well I'm 5'9" and 180. Just call me a tall Joe Pesci.
The correct answer: The block M is incredibly slimming. We were looking for "slimming."
is that Michigan is the best university in the country and their colors are the sweetest and also Michigan has the greatest college football team of all-time.
Hurray for us!
Do you want to know how I know you didn't go to Michigan?
Because you spelled "douche" and "mediocre" wrong. It's okay, not all of us got to go to Michigan. Looks like you went to East Lansing
Honestly, seems more like he's 12 due to the lameness of that supposed "joke"... parents probably went to MSU. He obviously doesn't remember the 2006 season. Probably still suckling his mother's (or cow?) teat if I guess correctly.
It hasn't been a long time at all. Michigan was 11-1 for the 2007 Rose Bowl. And 11-0 before the 1998 Rose Bowl.
Looking at MSU, it's been since the 1966 Rose Bowl since MSU had a 10-0 record. Keep dreaming "cool troll".
illiteracy is a terrible thing.
Well I think it's safe to assume that you didn't go to an Ivy League school or any school for that matter.
In case you aren't a regular doing this for shits and giggles:
P.S. The best thing I like about wearing Michigan apparel is making it look good in front of busted, burnt-out MSU cokewhores.
with nothing to do but come into a rivals site. In addition he can't spell worth to save his life
want to use correct grammar when bashing someone's grammar.
Down voting this comment: best spent MGoPoint ever.
for down voting them. So, have 2 points on me!
Wow. I have never experienced a MSU english/history dual major student. I didn't even know students at MSU had double majors. Let it be known that you money will be well spent once you break the final round of Smarter Than a 5th Grader.
No one said anything but Michigan being an Ivy League school....except you. I appreciate your backhanded compliment for Michigan.
... makes you a douche bag.
You have all the correct letters, so it looks more like a typo than a spelling error. Were you typing fast, so you wouldn't get caught? I would guess you are not supposed to use the computer while you are cleaning the office.
I see you don't have to pass fifth grade spelling to get accepted into MSU anymore.
Why do I think you're a frequent poster that made a troll account for fun?
I'm not gonna even waste a downvote on your soon to be banned name.
Maybe 2006? Is that way long ago? Like the last time MSU went to the Rose Bowl? Or, wait, that might have been much longer ago...
"that might have been much longer ago." just how much longer ago to be precise?
post. What a mess. I am a tax payer in the state of Michigan. I will have to call for an investigation of this loser. He cant be a product of Michigan public schools.
My guess is that he is a Ohio native. I wonder if he can spell his own name??
Quiz: When was the last time Michigan was 10-1 before a bowl game?
Answer: Way long ago!
You mean just a few years ago when #2 UM played #1 OSU? 4 years must seem like a long time when thats been half of your life, so I understand.
Also to answer why our gear is makes us so good looking is the colors.
Maize: It's associated with joy, happiness, intellect, and energy.
Blue: It is often associated with depth and stability.
You do know we play 12 games during the season and 11 right? I know it's hard for you State fans to count past 10 without taking your shoes off.
Obviously you haven't taken Elementary Math 121 nor it's prereq: Counting 111. Others have pointed out the obvious lack of basic spelling.
I bet you're one of those Sparty fans who has to count the number of days since Michigan last beat State. AMIRITE?
You have to make that stat seem more impressive by converting it into days. Talk to me when it reaches 6 years (we won't talk about Spartan Bob breaking up an 8 year winning streak). That's 2190 days in Sparty talk.
You probably meant to reply to the troll...
I didn't know they made a .gif of my sister's drivers training attempt.
Or, by wearing the apparel we know on news stations that you are not only a hero for rescuing a burned pilot from a crashed plane, but that you're also a Michigan Man! Gary Cox at 0:20 in the video, sporting a Michigan shirt hidden underneath the jacket, but I can tell, b/c it's got the infamous "CHIG" that I also see where the "MI" and "AN" get obscurred
"What kind of condition was the pilot in?"
I would have liked Gary to answer, "Dude just fell out of the mutherf*cking SKY. So yeah, he was totally fine."
a Go Blue bomb on someone at my apartment complex the other day. I was sporting the winged wheel and he had a Michigan jacket on. Hard to believe, an acknowledgement of hockey and Michigan at one time in Alabama!
is that you always run into some alumni who will give you a "GO BLUE"
Even in Hong Kong!!!
Also - it is Nike - er ...scratch that.
I love to wear Michigan apparel whenever I travel out of state. I always hear a "Go Blue".
I wasted a point downvoting. It's mediocre, douchebag.
I think it's safe to assume that he is either an MSU or OSU fan. If so, that means he can't even get "his" school's 11-1 record right, referring to it as "10-1." I know it has already been mentioned, but his misspelling of "doush" is pretty creative. If I was totally hammered, dropped out of a really crappy public school system, and had an IQ of about 80, I could easily see myself spelling douche that way.
I know I'm "supposed" to either ignore or detest trolls, but this one thoroughly entertains me. He somehow manages to simultaneously fit every negative stereotype I have ever seen of an MSU or OSU poster. This renders him so ineffective in his mission that I just can't muster up any hatred or even dislike for him.
Trolls who fail so badly in so many ways reaffirm my faith in why it is so much better to cheer for Michigan than for Sparty or Brutus. Thank you, would-be troll. You have brightened my day.
I live in Gainesville, Florida, and I wear my Michigan apparel to create distance between myself and Gator fans (who do a lot of this): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4UdmYInXplY&feature=related
Also, jb504, I'm moving to Boulder next year and I think we should flash mob CU games with other Mich alumni in the area.
I went to a CU game this year with my Michigan gear, I got a lot of Go Blues (UM alum in grad school) and a few Michigan sucks (other Big Ten alums in grad school).
Answer: Knowing I went to a University that demanded I knew how to correctly spell apparel.
...wasn't too big on us spelling properly.
I know, that's why you guys had people like me proofreading your "papers."
Which is fine. I can't imagine it would be great comfort, when I am plummeting to my death from a defective bridge, saying to myself "At least the guy who designed this won the county spelling bee in 5th grade!"
I want my engineers good at math.
By junior year of high school I realized if I wanted to have a shot at becoming and engineering, and go to a good engineering school I had to focus all my attention on math and science. My senior year I took English, and everything else was math and science. And I blew off my English class. I must apologize I'm not one of those engineering students thats good at everything.
Well. livingo in Mexico i have found some friendly and nice people at bars, we always end up talking about Michigan season/recuiting etc and it have been very nice so far, of course i 've meet some tosu girls too, i've ended up arguing with them (friendy) trash talking and even got lucky with a pair =) of course i've tried to sway them away, anyhow, at the end at least i've known interesting people due to my M jerseys =)
Back to the topic at hand, yes it is always good to wear Michigan gear when traveling. You are bound to strike up a conversation with someone along the way. It shows that we are EVERYWHERE and very proud.
My car has plenty of Michigan flare on it that makes it fun to drive in Ohio (the speed limit or slightly below of course). I am all about spreading the good word. GO BLUE!!
I was in Disney world over Christmas break last year. Penn State, Wisconsin, and Iowa were all playing in bowl games in Florida, so I saw lots of gear for those teams. I kept track of how many shirts I saw from each school, and Michigan still had more. Win.
about wearing M apperal is that the colors and the fit remind me of being raised by my hero (my dad and mom)! family atmosphere! i have been approached by M fans in Marrietta, oh! Cleveland, tn! Denver, CO! Barcelona, Spain! some were just fans, some were alumni and all were appreciative that we had the same hope in our Big Blue! Go Blue beat miss st.
