UM Fans in Pennsylvania

Submitted by newfoundhbomb on August 25th, 2010 at 9:44 PM

Hey i live in York Pennsylvania  and i was wondering if there were any other Michigan fans in Pennsylvania.  It would be nice to have some other Michigan fans close by.  All i get is Penn Staters telling me that they will beat us 9 in a row.  GO BLUE

I grew up in NEPA as well. My mother lives in Old Forge. So if you ever see a blonde hair women around with a Michigan Business shirt thats my mom. She loves to wear that out.

I grew up down 81 from you in Dallas, PA outside of Wilkes-Barre. I think we can count how many Michigan fans in NEPA on two hands. But with Big Uglys now closed that sucks as it was the only Michigan bar there.

Pittsburgher here. I know a handful of Michigan grads that I work with, but we're overwhelmed by the Penn State and Pitt grads. There seem to be a fair number of OSU fans, but that's because Pittsburgh residents are, in general, bandwagoners of the highest degree (except for the Steelers - they always have delusions of grandeur, myself included).

I grew up in the Pittsburgh area and my work has taken me all over the country.  Although I have no allegiance to any Pittsburgh teams, I would say that Pittsburghs fans are some of the most loyal I have seen.  The Steelers and Penguins are religions and I have a hard time believing that anyone that has been there would argue that point, furthermore, despite 20 years of misery the Bucs still have a pretty good following.  Keep in mind that this is also a city that could really care less about college athletics when you get down to it.

I just moved to Philly fresh from AA, to Northern Liberties to be exact. I'll definitely be heading down to Q's to watch football games though.
