Dear Michigan bloggers...

...you know who you are. I've got you in my mind lately, and it has nothing to do with Detroit's auto woes.

See, I, like millions of Americans, transform into a rabid, ravaging, foaming-at-the-mouth college basketball fan every March. And this March in particular, I am raging. In case you have not been practicing the fine art of bracketology, I would like to point out that your Spartans have made it to the Final Four.

Well...so have my Huskies.

I know, I know, y'all have home court advantage, what with Detroit hosting the Final Four, but really, we all know that the Huskies are gonna win this game.

Consider this:
  • In their previous trips to the Final Four, UConn has been the top seed in the West. Same thing has happened here.
  • Yeah, State upset Louisville, the overall top seed, to get here, but c'mon, what makes you think they're gonna retain that staying power? Besides, if Michigan State--COUGH--does win (although unlikely), they're not gonna last past the Tar Heels in the final game.
  • In 1999 and 2004, when the Huskies won the National Championship, Coach Calhoun was hospitalized during early round games. He was also hospitalized this year during the first round.
  • The Huskies won their second national title five years after their first one. Our last one was in 2004. We're at the five-year mark, kids.

So, my dear, dear Michiganders, best of luck to you and your team...NOT!!

P.S. In the unlikely event that the Spartans upset the Huskies Saturday night, feel free to trash talk me on your blogs. Might as well return the favor!!

Hahaha, I feel like you might as well say "Janna" in this post!

MSU is finally coming into their own, there is no telling what they can do!

GO SPARTANS!

That being said, it's going to be a tough hill to climb... but after Sunday's game I think they are capable of anything!

Saw your comment on my guest post on Stesha’s Hot Chocolate Caramel Mocha blog last week. Thought it would be fun to stop by and check out your site. So glad that I did too. You’ve got some great stuff here...very entertaining.

Let’s do this again sometime! :)
