in a snow bowl game
with rivalry roots from way back when
that hadn’t been won
the university of michigan over the ohio state university
in so many years
at last the wolverines bring a victory home
and with the win
michigan stadium is filled with jubilant fans
spilling out onto the field
and into the very, very happy town of ann arbor.
“you don’t have a real rivalry unless both sides are great teams.”

Governor Whitmer proclaims August 21 as Older Michigander Day
LANSING, Mich. – Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, in partnership with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), is celebrating the state’s more than 2.4 million adults aged 60 years and older by proclaiming Aug. 21 as Older Michigander Day.
“the great thing about getting older is that you don’t lose all the other ages you’ve been.”
detroit looks pretty good for being 320 years old
“there are cities that get by on their good looks, offer climate and scenery, views of mountains or oceans, rockbound or with palm trees. and there are cities like detroit that have to work for a living.”
*note – (elmore was a prolific american author/screenwriter who lived in the detroit area, where i grew up.
my father resembled elmore in his later years, was frequently mistaken for him,
and signed autographs upon request)
