Things About Michigan That Shock People
I have lived in Michigan now for almost 19 years. Before we moved here, I had only been to Michigan twice and both times were spent in and around Detroit.
My dad grew up here and my grandfather was a professor at State, but they had moved away from East Lansing long before I was even born.
I learned three things about Michigan from my dad: You always want any Michigan team to beat Ohio State. Michigan means deer-hunting and, "Michigan State University has the most beautiful college campus of any school in America." That last one is a quote that I heard more than a few times.
Part of the reason I took this job was just to see if the old man was right. He was.
