go blue. please.
So with my Tigers bowing out of the World Series in less than impressive fashion, I now have yet another opportunity to get my hopes up only to have my heart broken tomorrow afternoon, as #2 Michigan puts its national title hopes on the line against top-ranked Ohio State. To add to the drama, Bo Schembechler died this afternoon. No question this will motivate them, but it can only add to the already immense pressure. As with the Tigers, no one expected Michigan to be here at this point. But that's little consolation if they lose. Don't blow this, Michigan.
Here's an appropriate Sufjan vinyl-only B-side:

In one of the best blog posts ever, Mgoblog writes about tomorrow's game and Schembechler's death, set to the sounds of Sufjan Stevens' "Seven Swans."
