Simply put, the maize and blue guys hate the scarlet gray guys and vice versa. And judging by the insults levied back and forth, both fan bases come from mothers of questionable repute.
So, what can be done to raise the dialog between these two warring factions?
Why, introduce a giant ad for whiskey making fun of the other.
The ad reads:
It's obviously intended to be a burn against the Wolverines who went 3-9 under first-year coach Rich Rodriguez in 2008, but I just don't fully understand what the dig is."Here's to football season.
Is it implying the only way to suffer the indignation of being a Michigan is to drown your sorrows in delicious whiskey every evening before looking longingly at a framed picture of Bo Schembechler? Is implying Buckeye fans' greatest happiness in life is rounds of shots raised in celebration of UM's misery? Both?
Any Michigan fans riled up by this? Anyone even think it's funny?
Please, intelligent discourse only in the comments.
