Ann Arbor may, in fact, be a whore...but so are you six ladies.
This may come as a surprise to you, but I HATE being right all the time. I don't like reminding people that I told them so. I do not enjoy bragging about how great I am and how stupid other people are. Honest to God, it gets really old to always be correct in all of my opinions and having to remind some of my closest friends that they are ignorant. Eh, I can't carry this on anymore, you all know me to well. Let me bring up an old argument that is now factual in the favor of ME!
Damman, Lil' Strut, Dustin, and other Buckeye fans have fought this fight against me before. They try and argue that the Ohio State/Michigan rivalry is the greatest in all of sports. Since the game is only once a year, it gives the game a special feel each November. After all, how can the Yankees and Red Sox have the best rivalry when they play 19-25 times per season? Well, it's easy you see. Because eventhough they play each other that many times per year, EVERY game is important. And there is the rub for all of you OSU and UM fans because that is not the case anymore.
The one argument that Buckeyes fans have always fallen back on for their defense is that every year their big game has a large impact on the national landscape of college football. With both programs not living up to expectations this year, you better start thinking of a new argument. THIS GAME IS MEANINGLESS. Other than the two fanbases, no one else around the country cares (I would argue that this is the case almost every year anyway). Don't even bring that trash that a Buckeye win can get them a share of the Big Ten title. When Penn State wins this weekend, they are the Big Ten champs. Period. Oh, but "we" can go to a BCS bowl game! If it isn't the BCS title game or The Rose Bowl, it doesn't fucking matter. This "big" rivalry game means jack shit and your ridiculous claim is a moot point.
So pick another fight, Big Ten morons. You lost this battle. You have no argument left. Like usual, I win.
If you want to run smack against each other, I'm allowing it TODAY ONLY. And no stupid jokes either. I get it, Michigan won't show up on Saturday because they can't get past Toledo. It wasn't funny the first time I heard it. God, this game is going to blow. It could be interesting though but only if I do something that I'm not really sure I want to do. I'm not saying any more than this, but if I wanted to play the role of Johnny Media-Man, I could greatly impact the national interest toward this game. But I won't. I'm not in this "business" to break stories, I'm just an asshole with opinions.
