leave your inhibitions at the door
It’s going to be an interesting weekend here in Ann Arbor.
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.
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)…
