the university of michigan wolverines

rose to victory in

the university of maryland terrapins

football challenge

put forth by fellow blogger/sportswriter, mark b. –

and even

the 8 hour move-up game time

to head off the hurricane

and an away game location

couldn’t help

those turtles from maryland

who took to their shells

as

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!

wolverines, bulldogs, trash-talk, cowbells and popcorn.

on a beautiful night

at the university of michigan

home of the wolverines

and the women

of the winning softball team

went head to head

with the georgia bulldogs

worthy adversaries

in the second game

of the ncaa regionals

IMG_0689

and we were lucky enough

to have seats directly next to

the alumni marching band

loyal, spirited, musical, happy

as they

jumped up

cheered

played

and

very

enthusiastically

trash-talked

the rivals

and

called the plays

 as everyone got in on the act

and

desmond howard

and sons

sat in

on cowbell

IMG_0691

and in the end

the wolverines

were victorious

earning a spot

in the college world series

and

all the trash talking

 music

 hard work

 sweat

and

talent

paid off.

people are going to talk no matter what you do,

so you might as well give them something to talk about.
