My first year at Western Michigan in 1996, the football team won two games. To encourage students to show up to games they even gave out free pizza. Let’s just say that even with that offer I didn’t have to share the pizza with too many people.

20 years later and WMU had a perfect regular season (13-0) and played in the Cotton Bowl against a very good Wisconsin team. This was definitely a season to make any alumni proud.

We were so pumped up about Western’s football season that I even helped my son 3D print a WMU ‘W’ cookie cutter for my wife this Christmas.

Take a listen to the breezy instrumentals and wistful lyrics, close your eyes, picture a myriad of Michigan’s sights and sounds, and feel the longing of home if Michigan is where you hang your hat. The Accidentals might just be on the brink of […]

January 23, 2015

I was browsing through online photograph archives of old photographs from Detroit and came across these two contrasting images of women in Detroit from a relatively similar time period of the early 1900s. These hard working ladies are shown in the welding department of the Lincoln Motor Company around 1914-1918. Obviously, this was during World […]

Thumbnail image for Copper Country: A Unique Board Game Set in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula May 16, 2014

Ah, that headline doesn’t really do this game justice. Copper Country is an incredible looking board game set in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, well the Keewenaw Peninsula to be precise. The game is designed by two Yoopers, David Lankton and Scott Diehl. The year is 1840 and America’s first mining boom is about to change Michigan’s […]
