OT: Do you have a favorite Sparty?

Submitted by MGoSoftball on March 31st, 2011 at 9:43 PM

In one of the softball threads we have been having a great discussion.  So I decided to bring it to its own thread.

The question is: who is your favorite Sparty?

Mine is Carol Hutchins.  She is probably in my all-time Top 5 favorite Michigan coaches.

My second favorite Sparty is my sister who has a BA and MSW from msu.  She teases me about our colors being "corn and blue".  Spoken from a true Sparty and all things agricultural.

Well at one time my ex-girlfriend... that makes them easier to dislike. But now my current girlfriend, and then my mom and my sister. Why are all the women in my life Spartys?

My least favorite Michigan Wolverine is higher on my list then any spartan.  In order to list my favorite spartan I would have to make a very long list.  Hard to say.

What he was able to do at the collegiate and professional levels was amazing.  The size combined with the ungodly ability was unheard of at the time and I challenge you to show me a player since who could LEGITIMATELY play all five positions on the court at the NBA level.

Can anyone say that they saw a Magic Johnson "no look" pass and DIDN'T smile.

I love Magic to death.  I actually cried when he said that he had HIV, because at the time, I KNEW he was going to die...and that was something I couldn't imagine.

Mateen Cleaves... That 2000 national championship run was awesome. I was a sparty fan before I got into umich I loved AJ Granger and Alocious Anagonye jrich ballinger etc . Both my parents went to state but they encouraged me to go to the better school once I got in

We played on the same football team in HS.  Well actually he was out before I got there but his work was a thing of legend.  Also the time he and a stud WR were caught waking and baking in the school parking lot was key part of high school lore.  That pot habit definitely predated East Lansing.  As the story goes Smoker refued to exit the vehicle until he'd finished both Egg McMuffins because he was really hungry.  

He was actually a good guy by most accounts, just high as shit.

Aside from a good number of posters here . . .

Chris Perry.

I remember him blowing kisses at us in 2003.  I hated him then.

I've come to appreciate him ever since - both for that game, and in general.  51 carries?  Sheeeit.

Chris Perry was a man.  If I ever have a son, I will show him CP highlights, including the 2003 game, however painful it may be.
