and even

the 8 hour move-up game time

to head off the hurricane

and an away game location

the wolverines from ann arbor

showed them what a real storm looked like

with a 28-0 win

and mark was a good sport and gracious enough

to honor his side of the losing bet.

a shot of him in the rain

dressed in the gear of his losing team.

onward!
