#mcm – The Michigan Man

Dear hearts, since the college football season closed on us this weekend, I wanted to give you my first #mcm (Man Crush Monday) Post.

Who is the Michigan Man?

Bo's 1st Rose Bowl winMichigan Football

I’ve spotted him in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, New York and not as well-known places. He’s everywhere!

Navy Ball caps with a bright yellow capital M emblazoned on the front.

Dark navy sweaters with MICHIGAN in bold yellow font stretched across the front.

I’ve evaluated, and calculated, or just observed every twentieth car on the 10, 405, 101, 110, and side streets, has a Michigan license plate cover.

He is out. He is proud. He is The Michigan Man.

He doesn’t have a race or a particular face. No economic status. He is every man’s man, but also a step above the rest. He signifies something, an institution, a leader. He provides hope.

Who are the notable MM? Desmond Howard, Tommy Boy (Tom Brady), Les Miles (formerly L-Les-U), Rich Eisen, a former Prezzy (Gerald Ford), of course the ultimate MM Harbsy (Coach Harbaugh).

Isn’t it only fitting the men of Michigan play in The Big House?

The first time I stepped in The Big House, wearing my school colors, which are Red & White, similar to their hated rival tOSU, I was a little worried, especially after we won.

Hint: fellow femme’s, or gents inform your ladies, don’t bring a big bag to the big house. It will get bag checked. From that little lesson, I will not bring a big anything, anywhere.

I can’t throw shade to the MM. He and his ladies were very friendly to us. They invited us to their post-game tailgate, said they would improve once Rich Rod adjusted  (we know how well he didn’t adjust), and they wanted to review the game.

Hail to the Michigan Man. Nice to see you again.

Cheers,

Leaving Your Mark

I always adore a wonderful trip of schmoozing and scotching, which is what happens when this Westie steps her red sole in the 312.

I agree with Sinatra. It’s My Kind of TownKisses cdineslk7

I tucked in my napkin, overtly licked my lips and inched forward… intending to put that huge, juicy piece in my mouth…

Mmm Gibson’s – perfection as always
Oh, football right…

First things first, don’t allow The League  to seduce you into believing they watch their football games at Gibson’s. It’s on par with a sports bar as Jim Harbaugh not yelling. In other words, it’s not reality.


Speaking of semi-reality lets have some fun. Doesn’t it feel like the beginning of the season is like a first date?

At first your team date looks good in their profile pic. Depending on the depth revealed, you decide you want to view them in reality. 


Now you likely get really excited, put on your lucky pants, and do your little dance


Six NFL teams will be flirting with winning or disaster this season. If you didn’t know, newly minted 49’ers Head Coach, Chip Kelly has been rated the smoke show of the group. With these new gents in place, you don’t know if you’re getting Sandra, Tiffany or Brittany Lynn.

As Harsby said at Big 10 Media days “You should set your dreams so big that everybody laughs at ’em,” he said. “If nobody’s laughing at ’em, you didn’t set your goals high enough.”

With those massive dreams one wants, sometimes that individual has to lose or get rejected to find that success, on or off the field.

In other words, just win gents so you can be noticed, leading to a season of Sexy Rexy, or “my friend just got a bee-sting-it’s-bad-gotta-go byeee”.

Dear heart try this, instead of only focusing on the team the next game you attend. Strike up a convo with the lady or gent sitting next to you. You may be surprised what you learn. Both of you are there for the same purpose, so why not discover why they enjoy The Game so much. 

I promise you, like a great first date, time will quickly pass by. You may wish the next sixty minutes would never end. You may leave with a new friend, or at least a feeling that person gave you a new perspective.

Side note, that first pretty little picture above inspired me years ago to start this little thing. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Cheers,
