Dear Little Brother, 1

Little brother,

It must be cold, here, in our shadow.

You have been there for so long!

You probably enjoyed the party,

even if you were just tagging along.


We had to watch out for you

and keep others form beating you up.

Four years ago, you lunged out @ us,

and we were like, “yo, what’s up”??!?!?


You still punch like a girl, though

so, it felt more like a fly buzzing annoyingly around our face.

We are going to beat the hell out of you today

and put you back in your place.


For every time you’ve beaten us,

we’ve beaten you twice.

Let’s play this game,

let’s roll that dice.


You think 4 in a row is GREAT?

Well, my little brother, try EIGHT!

We beat you and we get 900 wins; ALL TIME BEST

You have 641.

WOW, that’s WAY LESS!


Paul Bunyan likes us, better than you.

You didn’t even join the BIG TEN

’till 1953, too!


I’m done here,

this will end my rant.

But, just remember, the only reason you are a school

is because of a GOVERNMENT GRANT!










About MotorCitySportsGuru

Thank You very much for taking the time to stop by and read my commentary on professional and college sports here in our great state of Michigan. We have such a storied history and rich tradition of both professional and college sports, that I am sure to have many journal entries! My hope is that you find each entry well reasoned, well researched, well written, and from the heart. You may not always agree with my analysis, but I hope my commentary is discussed frequently around the water cooler, while amongst family and friends and even while playing Euchre, eh! Loyalty. Passion. History. I have been following Detroit and local college sports with enthusiasm for over 30 years! I have watched our teams triumph, fall, rebuild and hold us captive as we have rooted for them to win the big game. Well, in the Lion's case, just ONE game! I have seen our beloved players come and go and come back again for round two. Players like Gibby, DMac, Big Ben, Dominik Hasek and Dan Petry rank in that category. I have watched our state groom successful high school  like Magic Johnson, CWebb,  Mike Modano, Justin Abdelkader, Brian Rafalski and Tim Thomas. We have also produced successful college athletes such as  Tom Brady, Charles Woodson, Desmond Howard, Andre Rison, and Rod Brind'Amor, to name just a few. The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat have touched and shaped my life!  I have had the pleasure of  seeing this region host a Super Bowl, World Series, and an All Star Game. I have seen Michigan win National Championships in football, hockey and basketball. I watched as Izzo and Michigan State won a National Title in basketball. I have seen the Tigers win a World Series and go to another one. Our Bad Boys have won three World Championships while appearing at five. I got the esteemed pleasure of watching the greatest running back  in Barry Sanders turn on a dime week in and week out for a decade.  I love my teams and I am happy to have created this outlet to share my thoughts and analyzations with you. Interactive and Engaging Please, feel free to visit my journals frequently. I am just starting this site and will continue to look for new and exciting ways to improve upon it. I plan on engaging my readers and offering a high level of interactivity to help you keep coming back for more commentary.
