In fact, Rigby and I have been enjoying our creative collaboration so much (and churning out more stuff than anticipated), today marks the first of what we think will be a new regular feature here: The MZone Picture Album. It will be a mix of 'Shops, reader submitted pix, news photos and general photographic what-not.
MICHIGAN, INC. Now Powered by Denard!
Recently, Wolverine fans were up in arms (including yours truly) when AD Dave Brandon mentioned that he was exploring the option of a mascot for the Michigan sidelines. According to Brandon, mascots are a way to hook the "youth demographic" on Michigan football at a young age (you know, because thrilling 35-31 victories over a hated rival with :02 seconds left on the clock have all the kids reaching for the damn Xbox).
But I think we here at the MZone may have solved both big Dave's desire for youth appeal and, by extension, the desire of 98% of Michigan fans who don't want a fucking asshat in a suit pretending to "fight" with Sparty in the endzone during TV timeouts.
Thus, MZone Children's Division has come up with a unique way to combine the best in youth entertainment with Michigan football. Or as we call it "Branding for Brandon." So next summer, be sure to take your kids to our first feature, Michigan, Inc. Here's a little taste...
And yes, it also makes a great wallpaper to put on that iPad you bought for junior so don't have to have any human contact with him on those 4 minute car rides to the grocery store.
THE BIG EVERITTOWSKI
As we mentioned the other day, we thought part of the reason for the Michigan Miracle against Notre Dame was the long-haired messiah spotted on the field after the game.
But Greg at MVictors set us straight explaining that the pic was of former Michigan center Steve Everitt.
Or was it?
Maybe he was more messianic than we first thought. Maybe he was actually The Dude.
|Where's the fucking defense, Lebowski?|
Got a couple good reader pix of the scoreboard. First, Russ sent us this dandy when the final whistle sounded:
And then Pam sent us this one right after the miracle TD with :02 seconds left:
Both great shots, but I think the second one is going to be on the official MZone holiday card that I'll make sure to send out to all my Notre Dame friends with the following caption:
