For about two weeks, I've been getting excessive amounts of hate mail from Michigan fans. It seems to increase each day, and for the life of me, I couldn't figure out why.
I know that college football season is fast approaching, but why all the sudden lashing out at little old me?
The e-mails range from how Michigan is the best ever, Troy Smith sucks, and Maurice Clarett is a criminal. None of them have proper grammar or spelling, and nearly all of them have some derivation of the word "fag" in it somewhere. So why am I getting the attack dogs?
Ohhhhh.....NOW I know. This is why.
Go to YouTube.
Now do a search for "Chad Henne".
The top two results that pop up are both videos to the tune by the Dead Schembechlers, "Chad Henne Is A Joke". Mine is the most watched, with just a shade under 100,000 views.
Near as I can tell, Michigan fans are searching for Chad Henne videos, and when they search for it, the first thing they see is not a very pleasant experience for them. All of a sudden, the memories and the realization that they have won only 17% of their games against Ohio State since Jim Tressel rolled into town, and they get all crazy.
Frankly, I love it now that I know where it's coming from. So here's a little gift for the friends of The BBC.
That's my work, but music and lyrics are by the Dead Schembechlers.
I can't embed it on my page, but if you want to hear 3,000 people sing the lyrics to this song, I implore you to see the live performance on YouTube.
Oh, and welcome Michigan fans. Good to have you paying attention to us again!
