Ann Arbor’s All Abuzz

It’s going to be an interesting weekend here in Ann Arbor.

Mich M blogsvillagegreencom

First, the University of Michigan’s team is in the Final Four of the NCAA Men’s basketball tournament.  We’ve lived here a little over seven years, and I’m wondering at what point do I start becoming a Wolverine fan?  Because I’m not.  I mean, I’m excited for the town and all my friends who went here, but I don’t actively cheer them on or wear the school’s colors. It’s not because I’m that loyal to my college – University of Illinois – which viewed UM as their archrival.  Oh, I know why – I really don’t give a rat’s ass about college sports.

So, I’ll probably catch the game somewhere and hope that Michigan wins.  Because, at least when the football team loses, this place gets pretty dreary.

The other reason why this town’s abuzz is that tomorrow is the first Saturday in April.  And that means it’s Hash Bash, an annual event that’s a rally to reform marijuana laws and bring awareness to the thousands of non-medicinal uses of the plant.  We had our own version of it at Illinois – Hash Wednesday.  I never went because I “heard” from a “friend” that it was just a big smokefest….

OK, I think I’m fooling approximately zero people…. hell yeah, I participated.  I was in COLLEDGE.

And I even outdid Bill Clinton by inhaling!  Hash Bash is really just an excuse to light up a bong and get baked in public with a few thousand like-minded people.  Not that college students actually need an excuse.

“Um, so yeah, I couldn’t afford to go anywhere for Spring Break. But that doesn’t mean I can’t put on a bikini and go on my own little trip!” (

Since I haven’t converted fully to being Michigan fan, I’m not going to post their fight song.  But I do know a few songs appropriate for this weekend’s other festivities…

Who are you rooting for?  (In the tournament, so the girl in the bikini doesn’t count)…

I don't know everything about the world of food and wine, but I'm not going to let a small detail like that stop me from blogging about it.

    Well, my allegiances are still with Louisville, you know, early allegiances last longer…but I am rooting for Michigan because it’s Nina’s school and I am somewhat of a local patriot wherever I live. And, I have to say it, their song is just so catchy…:)

    Our area seems to be rooting for Louisville except for one friend who is a die hard Michigan friend…I have only been here 3 1/2 yrs so I am impartial to both lol…

    If I’m going to root for any kind of “sports team”, I root for whichever team is the away team. In this case, I hope both teams lose.

  7. While using it should be kept in your head that your particular vaporizer consists of a limited period of
    life and it is uphill to use it following that
    time period. Panic attacks typically survive about ten or not as much.
    Many individuals often call vaporizer as smoke sticks.

    Fastidious answer back in return of this difficulty with real arguments and telling everything about that.

  9. It’s actually very difficult in this full of activity life to listen news
    on TV, so I only use web for that purpose, and get the latest information.
