I've been lax in my sports blogging of late, largely because I am woefully ignorant of basketball and football season is basically over.
Still, the holiday bowl-fest (as opposed to the Holiday Bowl) offers one last chance to root for my beloved Spartans, to heap praise on Javon Ringer, admiration on Mark Dantonio, admonishment on Brian Hoyer and scorn on Drew Sharp.
For those outside of Michigan, the Big Three aren't the only Detroit businesses on the brink of bankruptcy. Despite a joint operating agreement, the News and the Freep are so short of cash that they are actually suspending daily home delivery.
Dantonio just got a nice pay raise and, in a show of epic-level class, won the right to set aside his own bonus money to pay his assistants a little extra each year. Awesome.
All we need now is a convincing pounding of Georgia. Go State!
