Why DO The Lions Always Play On Thanksgiving?

As usual, the Lions are having another stellar season. They will have to win the remaining games to hit the 10 win level that they reached last season.

21-Year-Old Michigan Man Fakes Documents to Play High School Football

Taking a page right out of the "Never Been Kissed" playbook (Drew Barrymore? "Josie Grossie"? C'mon! You know you saw that movie.)  a 21-year-old Lansing man forged documents to pose as a high school student. James Nash transferred to Mount Pleasant High School during the first week of school, claiming to be 17-year-old Javier Jones. Now why would anyone ever want to go back to high school? Cafeteria food? Book reports? To scam on underage, naive high school girls? Well maybe, but mostly James Nash wanted to play high school football.

November 10, 1975-The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald

If you have spent anytime in Michigan, November 10, 1975 is a date you know. It was 37 years ago today that the S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald sank in Lake Superior. While the ship is far from the only to have sunk in Lake Superior (since 1816 that number is 240) it's easily the most famous. Not many shipwrecks have a chart topping song written about them as well.

Nope, that's not a typo. For the first time I can remember in a LONG time, Michigan's gas prices are lower than a lot of other places.  Now here's the next question, how long will it last and will the election have anything to do with it?

My Favorite Fast Food Joint Is Doing Good!

If you know anything about me, I love White Castle! The little sliders you can only get in bigger cities (Howell outside of Detroit is the closest to Grand Rapids) are heaven. Yes, you can buy frozen WC Sliders in stores, it's just not the same. You HAVE to experience them in an actual location. What's also cool is the chain is socially conscious as well!

Petoskey Batman Busted Again– Girlfriend Petoskey Batgirl Shows Support on Facebook

 

The last we'd heard of Petoskey Batman (Harbor Springs man, Mark Wayne Williams), he was auctioning off his Batman suit to cover the legal fees he acquired after his arrest for scaling a building in downtown Petoskey. Apparently the Ebay route isn't working out for him. That, or the lure or crime fighting is just too strong,  because Petoskey Batman has been busted again.
