Super drunk driver said Michigan’s pathetic offense drove him to drink

Al Borges MichiganA Michigan man arrested on drunken driving charges two weekends ago said the Wolverines’ pathetic performance against Michigan State led to him getting smashed. True story.

The Dearborn Press & Guide says a 25-year-old man who was super drunk and had urinated himself, was arrested by police around 2:30 a.m. on Nov. 3, not too long after Michigan lost 29-6 at Michigan State. Officers were called after an employee said he saw a car parked for 90 minutes. Officers found the man with his head on his arm. He was asleep and they had to reach in and turn off the ignition.

The Press & Guide also provide this description:

The man appeared confused and disoriented. His speech was slurred, his eyes were watery and bloodshot and he smelled of alcohol. He said he was “drunk,” he had “a lot” of alcohol and urinated on himself.

The guy’s BAC was 0.24 percent. That’s not too far off from Vodka Samm, who blew a .341. The guy told police he was driven to drink by Michigan’s terrible game. He also complained about offensive coordinator Al Borges’ (pictured) play-calling, which resulted in -48 yards rushing. This dude is a hardcore fan, man.

Two Grandmas Shotgun Beers at Michigan Game (Video)

This may very well be the best video we’ve ever posted here at LBS. Back in May, we passed along a video of a few female fans shotgunning beers at an Indians game. Those were young, college-aged girls — they’re expected to be in tip-top beer pounding form. But a couple of elderly ladies? The only thing they should be able to chug that quickly is their Boost fiber shake. I suppose this is the atmosphere of Michigan football games encapsulated in one short clip.

Michigan Fans Buy Jim Tressel ‘Liar Liar, Vest on Fire’ Billboard

Things are looking up for the University of Michigan. Not only did they part ways with Rich Rodriguez and bring in a new coach, but their rival Ohio State is under fire for a tattoo-merchandise scandal. The most controversial part of the scandal is that Ohio State coach Jim Tressel covered up the violations committed by his players and lied about it to authorities. In light of this, some Michigan fans decided to take a shot at Tressel by purchasing this billboard on I-94:

That picture comes to us courtesy of Douglas Ray Williams on twitter via Kegs ‘N Eggs. If anything, I would consider it revenge for this billboard put up two years ago in Columbus. Whether it’s flyover airplanes or billboards, college football fans love tweaking their rivals. I can’t complain.

As for Tressel, we’re learning that lying to school officials is a pattern for him dating back to his Youngstown State days.
