The Pirates fell to the Red Devils for the second time at home in just 10 days. The first time, it knocked Riverview out of contention for a Huron League title. On Monday, the first round of the district playoffs, it ended their season. If you want to read about it, there is a link here. Be warned, this link is to an article written in the News Herald, which has writers of a skill level just shy of Goody (who still struggles with quiet, quit, and quite). Regardless, congratulations go out to to the Pirates for one of the most exciting seasons in history...there was like 7 overtime games, and I enjoyed every one of them. They played hard, and were in every game they played, win or lose...even against Detroit Renaissance.
What does this have to do with UMTailgate.com? Riverview is my hometown and the hometown of Lloyd Carr. Our own Johnny Cleveland is the head coach. Your's truly does the PA announcing. Oh, and our rival, Grosse Ile, has Ohio State's color scheme and uses Michigan State's fight song. So f*ck them.
