Second, during the Michigan-Wisconsin game they showed the old UM commercial which starts with a picture of Earth from somewhere out in space. Three names pop up in the corner, one by one, all Colonels. Then we see "APOLLO 15" on the screen, as an orbiting spacecraft comes into the picture. Then "An all U of M crew" splashes across the screen, and you can hear "Hail to the Victors" playing softly as the craft floats in front of Earth and passes out of view.
Obvious message -- U of M people are smart.
Message that smart people take away from it -- U of M people are still not smart enough to know that sound does not travel in space.

I wonder what The Sports Economists would say about this.

There are two problems here. First, eleven o'clock is not really breakfast time anymore, and even though it was in fact my first meal of the day, if you come across someone eating at the law school at 11 a.m., you should assume they're just eating (an admittedly early) lunch, right? Second, and more importantly, when the hell did cold pizza become an unacceptable breakfast food? Until Thursday I was under the impression that every person in the whole wide world has at some point eaten cold pizza for breakfast. Or at minimum anyone who has ever been to college. But no, this guy thinks I'm the weird one here.
So I put it to you, dear readers. Cold pizza -- delicious breakfast food? Or victual of heathens?
Never had cold pizza for breakfast, good grief. Just another reason why Michigan sucks.

When you get to be an old man like me,  you have to live vicariously through others. So just to let you know, I will be doing that all football season, living vicariously through my friend who plays football at BYU. Yes, I know I blogged about this last year when I went to see him play at Notre Dame. Yes, I know that none of you care about Mountain West football. But the Cougars will be on TV now and then in my neck of the woods, so I will periodically be updating you on his progress. In case you care to watch, he is no. 48—Andrew Stacey. He's an OLB by trade, but you're more likely to spot him on special teams (he's on the punt, punt return, and kickoff return teams at the moment).
Anyway, he has been on TV a lot so far, including a nice shot about six seconds long doing that Samoan dance in the pre-game.
So yeah. That's what I'm doing on this Saturday night.
 Full disclosure—I am only 24.
