Lincoln Continental Town Car

what part of “It costs a month’s salary” do you not understand?

This ^^ is what happens when:

  • It’s football Saturday
  • Michigan last #beatOhio in 2003.  (Ohio does not have a win for last year, but that is not a Michigan win)
  • Ohio:  Beaten.  Back monkey: removed.
  • Blue beers are in order.
  • FWIW, Blue Moon and PBR have 33 and 20% more alcohol than Coors Light. (You found that out the hard way last night).
So here’s to you, Ohio [state].  We honor you with:
  • failure to monitor (the buzz or the beer count)
  • lack of institutional control (eBay (and later Facebook) under the influence).  No blogging while buzzed has broad application, and had no effect this day.
  • Improper inducements – those red leather seats aren’t gonna get boned on themselves.  Also, “moon” roof refers to the verb, not the noun.  Pussy and beer are the only things that resonate with you at the moment.

So, now Raoul own this glorious barge, this rolling boudoir of hookers and blow. He just has to find a way to pay for it, and a place in Michigan to store it until fetched.  Seemed simple enough last night.  Either that or get ready for the old eBay account to be “negged into Bolivian.”

Ohio: Beaten.

Now comes gravy time.  Any bowl.  Any where.  Just let us keep on rolling.

Finally beating the Buckeyes didn’t just end a humiliating streak: At 10-2, the Wolverines are guaranteed to move into the top 14 in the final BCS standings, and virtually guaranteed — assuming bowl officials consider the prospect of a sprawling, revved-up Michigan fan base a more attractive draw than a revved-up Kansas State fan base, or deflated, dejected Oklahoma State fan base if the Cowboys lose to Oklahoma — to receive an at-large invite to their first BCS bowl since 2006. It’s a catharsis, but it isn’t just salve on a wound. Beating the Buckeyes was further, final confirmation that Hoke has fulfilled his promise: Yes, shotgun offense and all, this is Michigan again, as Michigan fans have always understood it.

Whether Hoke’s version is actually better than the version Rodriguez would have delivered if he’d been granted a fourth season with a veteran team of his own making and a new defensive coordinator, we don’t know. But those questions are beside the point now, anyway. It’s Hoke who’s delivered the 10-win season, the (likely) BCS bowl, the end of the subjugation to Ohio State and the first sense of sustained progress and goodwill since Schembechler’s death. Michigan is back. Now comes the business of staying back.

“Oh, heck no,” he said. “There’s never been a point in my life in (this) business when I’ve considered resigning.

When you know that what you do every day is right and you’ve done nothing wrong, you’ve got to stay the course and make sure we continue to get better and help our current student-athletes and coaches. So I’ve never thought about that at all.”

Where have we heard that (everything right, stay the course) before?  Oh yeah, this guy:

How’d that work out ( *cough*recession, oil war, shredded Constitution *cough*)?  Yes, Gene, we’re sure everything is just dandy in your immediate future.
