I only became a Michigan fan in 2011 when I was accepted into graduate school there. I have no prior connections whatsoever to the school or even the state. Since that time, though, I have converted my entire family -- including my sister's family that lives in SEC Country -- and my best friend.
I've been plying my niece and nephews with Michigan-themed gifts and I took my best friend to a football game and a basketball game. We now have a yearly tradition of going to either the @Maryland game or the @Rutgers game and we recently attended the Big Ten Tournament.
Whom have you converted? And how did you convert them? Any good stories?
EDIT: Thank you to MGoViso for the typo catch. I've always had difficulties with "who" vs. "whom."
