Bonus! Song of the Day: Go Blue!
Reel Big Fish, "Hate You" from Monkeys for Nothin' and the Chimps for Free (The Last Angry Wolverine)
Commentary: This R.B.D.S.O.T.D. is not saying "I hate you" to anyone at Michigan State. I don't hate Mark Dantonio, I really don't. But Dantonio really does hate me, me & everyone affiliated with the University of Michigan. Dantonio's hatred is all-consuming, & like Captain Ahab's, ultimately self-destructive. For example, at the end of today's game, when the two-point conversion could not have altered the outcome in his club's favor, Coach Dantonio had his squad attempt the two-point conversion, apparently for spite's sake. The ball was fumbled, scooped up by a Michigan's Jabril Peppers, & returned for a safety, ending Dantonio's squad's slim chances of snatching victory from the jaws of defeat with an onside kick recovery. "Hate You" encapsulates Dantonio's spiteful attitude, an attitude that fuels behavior that today actually hurt his club. Such are the fruits of hatred, Mr. Dantonio, my co-religionist; competition is fine & healthy, but the Christian has no place for hate in his heart, except hatred for sin & evil.
Better luck never. Go Blue!
