From Fox Sports
I wonder if the folks in East Lansing can appreciate the caption. The "Hail" refers to a Hail Mary pass at the end of the game.
To see those four words on THAT photo....that's blasphemy.
*refines admonishment for those who fail to call song "The Victors"*
It is proof that no matter how well Sparty does, they are still irrelevant. Some weekend part-timer at Fox Sports probably thought MSU was the school with the Victors theme song. Fox looks stupid and Sparty looks less-than-relevant.
Haters gonna hate. See my post below
I need to vomit.
Everything is opposite what it should be. I'm sure I will wake up soon to find this is all a bad dream.
I'm not sure if that is funny or insulting.
I'm just glad that whenever I get the slightest urge to look elsewhere on the interwebs, where I may be confronted with Sparty love and all the glory that is Sparty right now....that I can just click on my mgoblog bookmark. It makes me feel like I am safe and sound in my house, nothing outside to frighten me, move along nothing to see out there. Thank you mgoblog.
National media on gameday..........
Copywriter: "Hey guys....some University in Michigan just won on a hail mary. We need a pithy headline"
Editor: "What did you say? I'm watching Access Hollywood. Did you hear about Ashton and Demi?"
Copywriter: "I did. As a matter of fact I saw him and that new girl at Spagos. Acted like they didn't have a care in the world."
Editor: "Oh...football. Hate that sport......anyways did you say University of Michigan....are they the ones with the wierd helmets?
Copywritier: "I thought so but these guys are wearning green. Must be their new pro-combat uni's. VERY sexy. Hey they use that hail thing in their song I thing i think. Why don't i use that?".
That is hilarious.
Keith Nichol look like he should be in a boy band.
Hahaha. You are so right
That is the most vile, disgusting thing I've ever seen. Hats off to sparty for getting a big win, but WTF? I am going to go lose my cocoa pebbles now.
This isn't funny more like insulting
How is this funny?
It's not funny, of course. I found it to be something of a smack in the face.
If anything here is funny, it is that there was someone at Fox Sports actually thinks they are funny.
Oh everybody just chill out. They hated on us for pulling the ND game out of our ass, too. Now is not the time to try and pull the little brother thing. It's just tacky by now. Our paths have crossed and the game is behind us. Let's try worrying about Purdue now because talking about MSU so much makes us look like insecure assholes.
let's move on to Purdue and quit commenting about sparty. Michigan will return to supremecy in the next few years. We are still a one loss team, the only loss coming in a game that could have had a different outcome. It was no ass kicking. Purdue just knocked off Illinois, a team that many apparently believe is going to be one of our losses this season. Let's beat Purdue and move on and leave sparty in the rearview. Go Blue
Hell hath frozen over.
Is this copyright infringement?
Can we please quit obsessing over sparty?
Maybe this will help...
So now we are searching media reports on MSU games, looking for something that might possibly cause offense to MSU?
We are better than that.
It doesn't take any searching to find. It's on the front page of the Fox Sports website as they cycle through their headline sports stories.
To us because we've become so irrelevant that they don't know who that tag belongs to? That's kind of sad actually.
It needs "Valiant" at the end to be relevant. We can't copyright that first part of the phrase.
I think Brandon licensed the phrase overnight to create another revenue stream for the university.
Really? You find this funny, and think it's a shot at MSU? It's Fox News sticking it to Michigan for losing four years in a row. Next year can't come soon enough, given that Michigan football returns that is.
Definitely a dig at us. This is like the bumper stickers that say, "Michigan State University, THE University of Michigan."
They are going to get their day in the sun and they deserve it. WE decide our own fate now.We are beginning to sound like Sparty with all this whining. WE do not whine or write blog-fulls of " f___ you faggots " language ( looked at a blog about the UM-Sparty game and all but one MSU entry was " F you, I did your mother " stuff ). WE are classier than that. The thing about Sparty is that now they ARE winning and they STILL act like they did when they were second rate. To me, this is worse than being second rate.
I love all the analysis about this photo on whether it's an insult to us or a statement on Sparties National Relevancy.
