To Catch a Michigan Fan?

I guess we should be careful what we ask for here at the MZone.

After getting some emails from Buck fans who claimed one of the alleged perps on a recent episode of NBC's To Catch a Predator was sporting a very, uh, familiar looking hat, we asked our readers to send us a link if they had it. To prove your case. Well, you did (damn you).



Now keep in mind, this show was shot in Texas and the town name started with an "M" so maybe (hopefully) this wasn't a Michigan hat at all. I mean, that doesn't even look like a block M. To me, that's more of a...uh...balloon, yes, a "Balloon M." And I wouldn't call that hat maize. Hell no. It's practically orange. Seriously.

Oh, and if you're a Buckeye fan who's new to this site, before you throw any stones in the comments section regarding this post, first check out this link from inside your glass house.

Looks like there are a lot of glass houses on this street and Michigan's was the house of the week.

GoBlue43 said...

That hats clearly orange. I don't even think the M was Blue. More of a violet. LOL

dgarr22 said...

I think that hat is from mansfield, ohio and he is a closet buckeye fan...lol

it looks like the guy has a mustache. there goes your "buckstache" theory.

WhetstoneBuck said...

Sometimes it's just too easy.

Quiet Storm said...

That's definitely a Marquette hat.

tOSUBuckeyes said...

At least the guy is a big fan of the show. And he didn't even get time to chalk his cue.

At least we keep our pervs in state...lol.

The sad reality is that it seems to be a serious problem all over the country, from all walks of life.

ohio_guy said...

I've seen a lot of differnt variations of UM hats...and that definitely could be one of them. Also, the picture clarity is not that great....so it's hard to tell between orange and yellow.

But I still think it's yellow (or, well maize)

Hate to bring the mood down, but tosubuckeyes is right-it's sad that this show has been on a couple of years now yet there are still many many people trying to solicit sex from underage girls and boys.

Okay, back to the jokes.

BuckeyeDave said...

That guy has to be a TSUN fan. I mean, even has the face of a skunk weasel.

Missouri hat?

El Caballo de Sangre said...

Thant's pretty much the same "M" that Lloyd has on his hat.

ohio_guy said...

then again, come to think of it, Michigan DOES have one of the most generic logos out there...

But I still say it's a UM hat.
;-)

Goes to show you the lengths buckeye fans will go to make Michigan look bad... To think a guy would throw away his life to dress in UM garb and pose as a pedophile...

Yost said...

LOL, Anon.

El caballo de sangre said...

This seems like as good a place as any to post this link:

Enjoy, all.

Kirbdaddy said...

The M is black...he's gotta be a Mizzou fan!!!!

js said...

We gotta put Missouri, Minnesota, and all the other M's on the tag until we have an on-camera confession from the guy that he is a Michigan fan.

Now, I know this is actualy maize and blue, but for some reason it looks orange and black in the pic

The perp's screen ID has the word "Brighton" in it. This is, of course, the same name as an upscale town that is basically a shared suburb of Detroit and Ann Arbor.

I'm sure that, like the hat and the solicitation, it's all just a horrible misunderstanding. ;)

Scott said...

the guy was from texas - everyone knows how well Michigan recruits out of state right?

:)

all of our predators are homegrown

Anonymous said...

Pedophile's hat was from MURPHY, Texas....thus the M!
It wasn't our Block M, either...

MGoBlue93 said...

The host of that show was on WDIV in Detroit for years before he started working for the NBC collection of companies.

Benny Friedman said...

mgoblue93, not only is Chris Hansen a former WDIV reporter, he's also a Sparty! So you know if it was a Michigan hat he would have gotten in a comment about it.

MGoBlue93 said...

Holy shit Benny... I had no idea. But I also have plenty of Sparty friends out here in Colorado now... we gotta stick together against all the Avholes who cannot even spell N-H-L and think Denver is much more than a glorified cowtown.

God that is embarrassing. To get caught on national TV... wearing a Michigan hat!
