Do you know what the above gibberish is?? That is my flight itinerary to go back to Madison for the Wisconsin-Michigan game. Just got word passed to me today that we were going to get a 4 day weekend, and I was looking up flights within the hour.

The best part? My buddies Clay and Jeff get to come up with me and experience Madison for the first time. They got a little taste of the Badgers at the game in Vegas, and they are both slowly converting. This weekend is going to be over the top for them.

I AM PUMPED. I hate Michigan. Not as much as I hate the Hawkeyes, but, let's be honest, that hatred is unmatched. My boys have a couple of weeks here to get back on track, because when I come to town they better be on top of their game.


  1. The Badgers sure as hell better win....I made a deal with the Devil and if they lose I have a horrible bet I need to pay up to a good buddy that's a MI grad stationed in Lemoore :)


  2. Jake, I want to see the pictures of you guy's sleeping in the back of the car.

    Have a great time.

  3. O.K., I hope that did not sound gay....!

    I meant don't drink and drive.
