Hello

Hello,

I came here from ToMU about 6 months ago and have been reading avidly ever since.
I recently decided to make an account 'cos well... I guess it's just more fun that way.

About me: I live in England, ( land of perpetual downpours). But was born in Michigan. But lived in Canada. But moved to England. Yes. It is slightly messed up.

So yeah, Hi...

Welcome and greetings the Isles.

I went to MU from here but have found this to be much more interactive and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Drive! Drive on down the field;
Men of the scarlet and gray;
Don't let them thru that line,
We've got to win this game today,
Come on, Ohio!
Smash thru to victory,
We'll cheer you as you go;
Our honor defend
So we'll fight to the end
For Ohio!!

DAMN SKIPPY.

But Welcome, Takashoru! No ill will implied, just an overabundance of buckeye pride.

Heh, call me a traitor; I was born in Ohio and now live in Michigan, and honestly I like it here more. Though I find all of the animosity between the two sides hilarious, especially since most people don't even know of The Toledo War in which Michigan and Ohio went to war with each other and Wisconsin lost.

PS: Welcome!

I admit I've never really looked into the details - this is pretty funny! The rivalry is intense between the Buckeyes and the Wolverines, always has been, and will probably continue on in the same fashion - until Michigan admits defeat. }:) Even on the east coast, some saturdays I see guys in the ol' maize and blue, and they see me in the scarlet and grey, and man - it's like a Mexican Standoff until one of us says something vaguely civil.
"Tough season, huh? Better luck next time. (Maybe you'll actually win the Rose Bowl. How many years has it been?...)"
EVIL EVIL WOMAN MWAHAHAHA

a couple weeks ago, I saw a young woman in a UM shirt...

"3-9!!! GO BUCKS" said I, to her, as I walked past on my way out, complete with fist-pump.

How the hell did Wisconsin get involved? Had to look that up. Certainly explains how the U.P. became part of Michigan. It's still run like two seperate areas. Don't know how many of you have traveled over the Macinack island bridge, but on either side is a sign that says Welcome to Michigan or Welcome to the UP.

What part of England? I lived in London for a little while, but I thought the countryside was beautiful. We used to head west for picnics.

Welcome!
