Does anyone know a fellow Michigan "fan" who thinks they know everything about sports, yet in truth they know next to nothing?
There's a guy who works for my company who constantly talks about Michigan football and tries to spread his insight because he has a "friend who works in the athletic department." Who knows if it's true. But if he does, that friend is an idiot and feeds him garbage.
Last year, he told me that MSU wanted to get rid of Kirk Cousins because he was a "bad influence on the team." Yesterday, he struck up a conversation with me and went on and on about Michigan's "Coach Holt" and "Gerard Robinson." Recently he told me that Boise is going to pound MSU. I asked him why...the response:
- "They have that great quarterback." ME: "Kellen Moore? He plays for the Lions now."
- "Oh, but they have a good RB too." ME: "Doug Martin? He plays for the Buccaneers now."
- "Yeah, but they have that Titus guy." ME: "He plays for the Lions too."
Does anyone else run into people like this? I must admit that I sometimes find joy in my conversations based on the absurdity that comes out of his mouth. Other times, it's just downright painful to listen to.
