Goober encounters Michigan fans over lunch

Published 12:00 am Friday, October 14, 2005

I know I is a tad early with this story, but I wuz eatin' lunch the other day at McDonald's and I struck up a conversation with a guy sittin' next to me.

I said, &#8221Wanna hear a Michigan joke?“

The guy next to me replied, &#8221Well, before you tell that joke, you should know something. I'm 6-foot tall and weigh 200 pounds, and I am a Michigan grad. The guy sitting next to me is 6-2 and weighs 225, and he's a Michigan grad. The fella next to him is 6-5 and weighs 250, and he's a Michigan grad. Now, you still wanna tell that joke?“

I jest looked at the first guy and said, &#8221No, not if I'm gonna have to explain it three times.“

Ennywho, I had me a perfect week last week with an 11-0 record to bring the season mark to 64-19 (.771 percentage). Let's see if I can duplicate that, maybe even do the same thing as I did last week, too.
