I've never been a fan of his and have yelled at the radio on my commute home several times because of something he's said, but I wouldn't wish this kind of pain or perminent damage upon anyone. The fact is we all hate him simply because he's doing his job (which is riling up the UM fanbase). Here's hoping for a speedy and full recovery!

I admit it, I did it. although I made it look good just like an accident. When I was serving him all I could hear was Wallmart Wolverine!! Walmart Wolverine!! and I just snapped. I was thinking of sticking a fork in his eye but that would have been too obvious. I just told my boss it was just desserts and I would get him (my boss) tickets near the 50 yard line if he lost the tape of the "incedent" when Mikes attorney came by asking for them. Then my alarm went off and I had to go to my real job. Just thinking out loud. Naw I hope the guy is ok, despite him getting my blood pressure up over a healthy level any time I listen to him try to down play anything positive for Michigan and play up anything negative.
