Semi-OT - Big House Blog does not like your jersey

Submitted by Blazefire on March 22nd, 2010 at 12:24 PM

Why is MGoBlog the greatest? Well, for a number of reasons. But among those is that MGoBlog does not pretend to be the Fashion Police, and moreover, is not run by morons!

The jackhole over at Big House Blog made a post today on "what to wear" to Michigan games. Among the gems of this fashionista's wisdom are things like, 'don't wear a jersey if you're a grown man', and 'no more than two pieces of logo wear'. I can get behind not wearing cheap knockoffs, but what sort of mentally incompetent do you have to be to think it's wrong for anyone to wear a jersey to a FOOTBALL game?

6'7" & not much fits me. Thank god for Jerseys. If I saw a 100 year old man in one, good for him This isn't like a old woman in a string bikini. Bury me in mine too.

He was also advocating that we give Richardo Miller, Roy Rountree or J'Ron Stokes the #1 jersey next season regardless of whether they've earned it or not... which none of them has, especially not Miller... he hasn't even played a down and this guy wants to give him the #1 jersey

... but I can't help but think I'm watching an Iowa crowd for some reason. I know maize is a warm color that really jumps out at you, but somehow I'd like to see a game or two where everyone is wearing the Michigan blue. After all, we are the one and only "GO BLUE" university.

I don't get the logic behind the whole "This guy's an idiot, so let's all visit his site and give him the hits he craves" thing. I've never visited that blog, and it sounds like I have little reason to.

when somebody's actions have been treacherous enough that they should be avoided at all costs. However, having a lousy blog post on what not to wear isn't such a post. If you say, "I think that's stupid so I'm not even going to read it" about everything, pretty soon you'll read nothing, and you'll be the one people are calling dumb.

OK no jerseys, but what if a grown man wanted to make a Michigan Voltron costume where instead of 5 robot lions he'd have 5 of those foam wolverine heads you can get at M Den?

Hypothetically.

I bought my #2 jersey well over a decade ago; I have cared for it meticulously and it still looks good. I have faithfully worn it every Saturday and bowl game since I bought it. So with that being said, guess what I'm wearing to the spring game?

It's someone named "Gail from Saline." Apparently, when given the keys to the kingdom for a day, she had nothing better to do than tell people how to dress. I'm sure she will be frustrated to realize that it might work on her kids, hubby, or whatever, but won't have any effect on those capable of making their own decisions.

There is one pretty funny comment at the end.
