He had me in the second sentence at roadkill. When he really gets into it, he does a great job.
Wojo is awesome
Hilarious article. I have hope in my wounded Wolverines.
My favorite comment: "I'm happy to congratulate the Buckeyes on winning a fifth consecutive Big Ten title, a truly remarkable achievement against mediocre competition, similar to being named Ohio State valedictorian."
Well done...Anyone going to the Pep Rally tonight?
What I like about Wojo is that he always writes like he has no vested interest in the outcome of the games. He just seems to enjoy covering sports, and always finds humor, even in situations that make the average fan want to jump off a bridge. His penchant for using mock-heoric satire, especially concerning college football, is great, too.
Wojo has been in the market for years, and I still can't figure out if he is rooting for or against anyone. It's sorta like he has the same teflon coating that Johnny Carson had.
To compare him to my other favorite Det News writer:
Angel = Maize and Blue heart on a sleeve
Wojo = Frog in a blender
Both work fine for me.
Sorta rare for columnists to be so open about their partisan hatred for another school in a rivalry. Most columnists like to see themselves as above it (despite the fact that they're, uh, opinion writers). Good for WoJo.
This is a damn fine ribbing.
