With all of the discussion about Nolan Ulizio, I thought I would tell a quick story about an interraction I had with a guy at a restaurant in Georgia this week while on vacation in SEC country. I labeled it as OT even though it is about the upcoming football season. We just finished eating at Iguanas Restaurant. We were about to pack up to leave when a young guy with a southern accent came to talk to us at our table. I'm only mentioning the accent because it was obvious he wasn't a transplant from Michigan or anywhere in the North. We spoke for about ten minutes about nothing in particular. He talked about how he was a military brat but had pretty much been around the South Georgia area most of his life. We told him we were from Michigan. I wasn't wearing any Michigan gear. My kids may have been wearing a shirt. He was a greeter at the door. On the way out, he stopped me and said, "I think Michigan is going to have a great season. Michigan will be better than people think." Because I'm from the north and sceptical if this southern hospitality rhetoric, the first thing that went through my head is this must be some SEC troll fucking with me. Naturally, I threw out some trivia about how well Michigan is recruiting Georgia right now. No SEC troll would be able to withstand that. His response was "Harbaugh is a genius". That sealed the deal for me that he was obviously on our side. We talked about some other things. He knew how many players Michigan lost but that didn't matter. You never know what you'll get when you travel. I had no idea what to expect. I didn't have any issues with aanyone. This was right up there with the time I was leaving Dunn's River Falls. They send you through that area with all of the vendors before you can leave. The first guy at the top of the hill is a random Jamaican guy wearing a U of M track suit. It wasn't like a 1992 national championship reject. It was legit merchandise. Iwas already having a good time but it's funny how these interractions with people can make my vacation go so much better.
