I hope that things have been well in your neighborhood. Here in Michigan, fall came in a pretty big hurry. We started October with temperatures in or near 80 degrees. This was over 20 degrees higher than normal. All of a sudden, it dropped. We’re now seeing high temperatures around 50-55 degrees. It’s been quite the sudden change!
One of our biggest rivalries here in Michigan is the college football game of Michigan vs. Michigan State. We’ve always been a Michigan family, so we’ll be rooting for the Maize and Blue!
My sister-in-law recently got married, and her new husband is a Michigan State fan. That has made for a more fun dynamic. Everybody is pretty good about making sure that the rivalry stays in good fun. Every rivalry has the fanatical type where you go so far as to ‘hate’ the other team (and their fans). We don’t go anywhere near that extreme, I’m thankful to say!
