Learn To Play Ucher Or Face Severe Judgment
I love playing cards but I have to hang my head in shame that after spending the majority of my life In Michigan I HAVE NO CLUE how to play Ucher.
Being A Sports Fan Is Painful
The Red Wings, Tigers, and Pistons have all won championships in my life.
But the Detroit Lions have broken my heart every single year.
Hopefully, this will be our year.
We Call A U-Turn A Michigan Left
If you don't know what a Michigan Left is according to Michigan.gov
A Michigan Left is an intersection at which traditional left turns are restricted. Instead, to turn left, drivers must continue straight through the intersection or turn right, then make a U-turn at a median crossover.

The Mackinac Bridge is the deciding line between Michigan's Upper and Lower Peninsula.
If you live above the bridge you're a yooper, If you live below it you're a troll.
