And I will call him...Michi-Me

Forget the red carpets of Hollywood movie premieres. If you want to see a Tinseltown star, look no further than Ann Arbor.

First, Russell Crowe stops by the Big House to rally the boys for the Notre Dame game. Then last Saturday, actor Verne Troyer, best known for his roll as Mini-Me in AUSTIN POWERS, was in town cheering on the maize and blue during their battle for the Little Brown Jug with Minnesota.


Next, I hear Pamela Anderson is coming to the OSU game.

Really? No, not really. I can't back that one up.

My question is did verne take his wheelchair down to these seats by chance? I know he has his little power scooter. With the recent DofEducation demands, we could claim perhaps we do have enough wheelchair seating?

Jim said...

Actually, I heard he just sortof popped out of the Little Brown Jug when Mike Hart rubbed it for luck.

LOL@Jim

"Can I have a hug?"

TitleIX said...

MiniMe also picks the game each week for the Ann Arbor News.

Q1Go said...

He's an alum. He appeared in the halftime show as a guest at one point, I think 4 seasons ago.

Corey said...

Pam Anderson? I hear Nick Lachey is doing an encore this weekend at the Shoe, but this time singing On Wisconsin.

srudoff said...

i heard his buddies gave him all of their keys and then they just shook him when a "key play" came up

Katie said...

LOL@SRU

You guys are kiling me between this thread and the cavalier thread....funny stuff!

Killing My Liver said...

I wonder how far Mallett could toss him.

The King said...

He's not an alum, he's just FROM Michigan.

There's a difference, unless you go to Ohio State.

Michigan Girl said...

Sorry q1go, he's not an alum. Verne grew up in Michigan and is a self-professed "huge fan" of UM football.

Yost said...

WolverineSteve,

LOL!!!!!!!!!

Matt said...

I think I've seen other stuff involving him and Michigan football. I've heard of him being a fan before. Go Blue!

WingRG said...

I think Yost ran a story on him being in A2 for the spring game.

srudoff said...

VT: "wow, the winner of this game actually gets this huge brown jug??"

Hart Break Kid said...

I hear Lloyd was thinking of throwing a winged helmet on him and marching him out as a decoy for Mike Hart.

surrounded in columbus said...

those of you who were at the end of the purdue or minnesota games got to see mike milano get into the games.

verne and him wouldn't look much different in uniform (especially standing next to Mallet).

srudoff said...

i think he was there for the end of the oregon game too - oh wait no one was there for the end of that game ;)

i kid because i love

ChicagoWolverine said...

Verne has been coming to games for quite some time... I remember seeing him on the sidelines back in '00

Katie said...

Vern grew up in a little burg 5 miles from where I lived. He is a long time Michigan fan, however is not an alum. Nice guy.

whetstonebuck said...

Duh,

Of course he grew up in a little burg.

Let me guess, it was a short distance from your place;

a tiny piece up the road;

just a small spot in the road.

BARman said...

Katie--where did you live? I grew up down there, too. Was it White Pigeon he is from? I can't quite remember.

beast in 'bama said...

I hope no one allowed any abnormally large Scottish men anywhere near him.

Jeff said...

He's from Centreville in St. Joe County. There's a "Welcome to Centreville - Home of Verne Troyer (with pic)" sign on each end of town.

You from Three Rivers Katie?

BARman said...

...I grew up in the bustling metropolis of Sturgis. Centreville is the county seat...
