If you are a Michigan alum in Baltimore, you were treated to this news on Monday night, via your email box:
"Hey fellow Wolverines,
For the big MSU game this week we have decided to spice things up and get some (friendly) rivalry going with the area Spartan fans. We have invited them to come watch with us...so come prepared to do some eating, drinking and cheering with your friends...and some rivals! Thanks to [name redacted] for reaching out to their alumni contact and setting this up!
Crazy Lil's in Fed Hill is the place to watch.... THIS WEEK IS HUGE so come out and show everyone that you bleed maize and blue. Let's make sure that our MICHIGAN BAR is full of MICHIGAN FANS!!!!!"
Maybe it is just me, but I can't think of anything more unpleasant than going to a Michigan bar and being forced to watch the game with a bunch of MSU fans. After sleeping on it for a couple days, I still think that it is a horrible, horrible idea. Am I wrong in this or does this qualify as alumni bar heresy and should be forever banned?
I'm sure that some MSU fans are perfectly pleasant people, but this week I would prefer that you stay the hell away from me. Shame on the Baltimore alumni bar organizer(s) for this. I may have to make the trip into DC instead...
