Haha, damn I was just getting ready to post this story. I was previewing my post when I saw this one. Should have just posted it without previewing.

Interesting bit on him leading his high school football team to a state title at quarterback.

Long live Lloyd Brady.

What if I told you one man could stand alone in a crowd of 110,000?  What if I told you that legacies are not reserved for just those on the field?  What if I told you a single circumstance could turn a regular fan into a miraculous legend?

Man it almost amazes me that the editors at the WWL allowed an article to be published that puts the blogosphere in a positive light.  The MSM seems to normally hate (real) blogs.

Man, this play-off game (a year after I graduated) was the most devastating, hair-pulling football loss I'll ever see in my entire life. My alma mater was winning 18-0 at halftime and ended up losing in overtime. They failed all three 2pt conversions when even one XP would have won the game against the team that eventually won the state championship.

Now that I know Lloyd Brady was the opposing QB, I don't even mind.

Someone call Bill Simmons. This would make a great ESPN 30 for 30 documentary. "I Believe in Lloyd Brady. The Rise and Fall and Rise of Michigan Football". The man who carried us through our hardest times!

Hey DB, take notice.  You don't need no stinkin' mascot.  This is the Michigan Difference.  You have an iconic fan that is the epitomy of what a Michigan Fan is and always should be.  Sitting front row, his lifelong support never wavering through the roller coaster that has been the last 5 years. 

EDIT - man, love the part about him rushing the field against ohio last year, not to party with the players, but to embrace his old man sitting across the stadium.  great stuff.

"It's been wild," said Andrew Wehner, a friend of Kazmierski's. "People will stop him, shake his hand and say it's an honor to meet him." - from the article

Only because it is an honor to meet him, of course. He is, after all, Lloyd Brady.

Great article about  someone that will live in Michigan lore for a long time, I am sure, thanks to MGoBlog. I actually did not know that John McColgan was a high school teammate of his, but it was funny to read that more people knew who Lloyd was than McColgan at the dinner described in the  story. This site, without a formal marketing department, is a marketing machine.

The Lloyd Brady saga was and is still my favorite of all the Board threads.  I mean, it was so f-ing epic that ESPN ran a story on it!!  Its pretty insane when you think about it, about the reach of MGoBlog.  We (and mostly you talented photoshoppers) basically took a random person and made him quasi-famous.  Tremendous!
