STUFFY ANCHOR: We interrupt your regularly scheduled blog for breaking news. We have just received word that, with the BCS National Championship game between Ohio State and Florida just days away, Yost - co-founder of the MZone - is about to announce the MZone's support for one of the two teams.
As you may know, Michigan fans have been torn about who to root for during the big game. Their hate of Ohio State runs deep. However, Urban Meyer's campaigning and perceived jabs at Michigan left many Wolverine fans with a sudden visceral dislike for the Gators. Debate has been raging on Wolverine blogs and message boards as to who U-M fans should back and--
Hold on. I'm getting word Yost is on the convention floor and is about to make his statement. We go there now live.
During this time, Benny and I did much soul searching. We went back and forth. Who do we root for? To whom should the MZone pledge its support come Monday? I had personally rooted for Ohio State in the 2003 BCS title game against Miami...for about three quarters. Then I began to feel really dirty. Like a Vegas whore after the electronics convention leaves town. By the end of the fourth quarter, I was hoping they'd simply cancel overtime and call it a tie.
This year, I was going to put on fandom's six inch stilettos and fish net stockings to again attempt to root the Buckeyes. For selfish reasons. To prove to Urban, BCS voters and all of America that the wrong team was playing the Bucks in Glendale. That Michigan truly was the second best team in land.
I was going to do that, as painful as it would be, until my team got bent over the San Gabriel Mountains like that same Vegas whore during Charlie Sheen's bachelor party.
Thus, as a result of our thrashing in Rose Bowl, it is no longer possible for us to proclaim we got screwed out of BCS rematch. And as mere uninvolved fans now, while Florida may have been a temporary enemy, Ohio State is still a bigger permanent one. And the enemy of this enemy is our friend.
As such, the great site of the MZone pledges its rooting delegates to the University of Florida Gators, saving Benny and I the unsavory prospect of pulling for Ohio State on Monday.
My fellow Wolverines, our long national nightmare is now over...at least until the last two games of next season.
