From Our Readers...

Mark "Green Skull" Dantonio?

Got the following email from KP:

So I was watching Captain America the other night and I couldn't help but notice that Huge Weaving (I think that's his name) who plays the Red Skull looks deceptively similar to one coach in Green and White.

You make the call.

Let's take a looks, shall we?  Here's Hugo...

Busting a Nut

The following was sent to us by Steve who runs Michigan Meets SC (as in the state)...

Back in 2006, the last time Michigan and Ohio State played for anything meaningful, a friend of mine and work colleague came back from a visit to Cincinnati Ohio, her home town, and brought me a buckeye.  Attached to it was a little flag.  One side said “Do Not Open” and the other side said “Until Michigan Beats Ohio”.  Notice even back then “State” was gone.  Huh, go figure.  It sat on my desk and over the years the nut dried out, the hull began to crack and peel away.  I could see the nut but not touch it.  I had really taken it for granted, like it would always be there.  Intact.

Anyway never giving up hope I applied tape and such to keep in intact for one day I knew I would get to peel away what pissed me off and bust that nut open.  Anyway on November 28th at 5:00 PM I cracked that nut.  Up until my drive to work that Monday morning I had forgotten about it.  A dreary Monday suddenly turned into a day long anticipation of releasing that nut from it’s confine of tape and dried hull.  It was truly like winning all over again.  Almost ceremonial.  I hope I don’t have to wait that long again to get a nut.  Thanks Team 132.

Indeed that is quite a resemblance!

I'm just amazed at the resemblence between Michigan's Mascot and Illinois. I would say this is your fault for not having a real costumed mascot, but Purdue and Sparty do and clearly they didn't make the cut. Of course they are fairly creepy and might give kids nightmares. At least Brutus looks good.

Tip of the hat to The Hoover Street Rag where I saw the images originally.

I never thought I would see Brutus and looks good in the same sentence. Unless it is like Brutus looks good as he gets tackled by the Bobcat or Brutus looks good wearing the orange jumpsuit favored by his fans.

Dennis said...

Well he at least looks like Brutus.

I can only hope if Brandon imposes a mascot on you it looks like that one since I know it will definitely raise the value of my shares in Ann Arbor Torch and Pitchfork. After a number of years of explosive growth it has been underperforming this year. :)

Apparently Dennis likes the look of Brutus on all fours?!

Which brings me to a new license plate slogan.

Didn't they fuck pool furniture too?
