I must be the only Michigander. If Johngoboom signs on he'll get it. He also hails from here.

Doing the same thing with Minnesota. I think it depends on where he's playing.
Sad but true. Many apply to me.

Yoopers reside in Michigan's upper peninsula (across the bridge). They're Michigan '********'. They don't have much use for those living in lower Michigan or anyone who's highfalutin. Give them jeans, flannel shirt, a gun, booze, hunting for food, wood for heat, an outhouse and maybe a pump for water and their needs are met. Simple people living simple lives. Nothin' wrong with that. I never heard of them not liking southerners unless you mean those in southern Michigan. I know most everything but I might be wrong on that one. ;)

Yea southern Mich. is what I meant. Hell they don't sound like bad folks to me! I went to Petosky (not sure of spelling) when I was a kid, nice country if I remember correctly.

Northern Michigan is gorgeous! Makes ya think you died and went to heaven. Lower Michigan is nice too but mostly city with all its hustle and bustle. The U.P. is laid back and easy going so there's time to drink in the beauty. I used to go horseback riding up there in the summer and fall.

Those are funny, and very, very true!

Ditto what Natalie said about Yoopers. The only thing I would like to add would be that most of them call the folks who live in the L.P. "Trolls". It's because we live under the bridge. :D

Michigan is a great state, we're just facing some tuff times right now.
