From the message “17 Reasons Not to Slit your Wrists,” on Michael Moore’s email list, forwarded to me by a friend:
7. Once again we are reminded that the buckeye is a nut, and not just any old nut -- a poisonous nut. A great nation was felled by a poisonous nut. May Ohio State pay dearly this Saturday when it faces Michigan.
The University of Michigan plays Ohio State on November 20th, not November 6th. Maybe you were thinking Michigan State, who is playing Ohio State this Saturday. Or perhaps you got football confused with soccer, since the University of Michigan men’s soccer team is the only UofM team playing Ohio State this weekend.
Mr. Moore, you are from Michigan, right? Most Michiganders don’t make the mistake of confusing UofM with MSU. Thanks for the shout-out though…
