OT: Settling a Debate

Submitted by KrisGoBlue on April 3rd, 2011 at 6:32 PM

My Wife and I had a discussion today about how serious I take Michigan football. Her main point, was that my Saturday will be ruined if Michigan loses and I refuse to watch any other college football game that day. Also that my life was pretty much in limbo during the coaching search, and didn't get back to normal until after Hoke was hired. I tell her that I'm not alone in that feeling, that there are plenty of die hards like me, that would refuse to watch college football game that day. So to prove my point, how many of you are that way?

I must be a little different b/c I don't avoid seeing the score on ESPN after a loss... I almost seek it out sometimes.  I pull up the recap and just seethe.

I think we're all this way because we don't know how not to be--it's in our soul.  My problem is that I have a hard time watching games/being at events with people who aren't as obsessed as I am.  I also hate dating guys who want to come with me to games/watch games with me if they're not already fans.  I know I should think it's sweet that they're trying to be interested in what I'm interested in, but Michigan to me isn't a hobby it's my life.  If we aren't dating seriously you're not allowed to be in my life like that. :)

...for the obsure reference and, even better, the keen eyes/ears who spotted it. 

Does the countdown to MSU clock start out at Five Hundred Twenty Five Thousand Six Hundred Minutes?

My wife was a pole vaulter at Washington State University and feels like she is a big Cougar fan but when it comes to Saturdays she is blown away about my Dad and I's love for Michigan football/every Michigan Wolverine team.  She as well hates that I get so pissed when they lose, I told her thats the way it is.  Either way, on Saturdays, I drink beers galore and I am either super happy or pissed off and hate every other college football game on.

Her family and all my friends over here in Seattle dont get why I am so in to it and they ask me to explain.  I say that I cant talk or try to explain it if you have never been to the Big House.  (I am taking my wife this October to see her first game) 


PS. UW Husky fans talk mad crap about Michigan and they hate us and now i want to punchasize every Husky fan in the face.  They are up their with Sparty and Suckeyes on my hatred meter.
