in a snow bowl game

with rivalry roots from way back when

that hadn’t been won

by

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.”

happy hour.

Standard

 

friends on november 12th celebrating national happy hour day to the fullest.

why limit happiness to just one hour?

note: happy hour began as an event in the military.

it is believed that the term comes from events organized

by a club called the happy hour social for the United States Navy in 1913.

“fair thoughts and happy hours attend on you.”
