I have my back up against the wall this morning gentlemen. Left Tennessee yesterday to drive to Ann Arbor for the game this weekend and to visit friends and family this week.
My car broke down in Piqua, Ohio last night at 9:30. I almost got ran over by a truck and coasted with no power into the rest area going northbound. Immediately I started getting torn up by Buckeye fans who saw my Michigan jacket that I was wearing working under my hood. "I hope you have a sleeping bag"..."Wrong place to breakdown"...yada yada.
I changed up my gameplan. Called the tow place, changed my jacket to a brown sweater...made up the story that I had a family emergency and now I am in a hotel waiting for a new alternator belt to be put on by a bunch of Buckeye fans. Saw two Buckeye hats at the service station and a flag.
I'm deep in enemy territory. My back is up against the wall and I am sitting here with my Michigan ticket. I refuse to miss this game fellas. Say a prayer for me...you have one soldier down. Go Blue!
