Go Blue!

I just found the shirt I'm going to wear in the Cleveland Marathon:

You asked us to expand Wolverines Run and we listened. It is now open to AAUM members running in any marathon. Join Michigan alumni from around the country in Wolverines Run. Alumni Association members who register any marathon can sport their Maize and Blue spirit while running.

Here’s how it works:

Alumni Association members who participate in a marathon are eligible to register for a free Michigan T-shirt (from Cool-Max or similar material) to wear the day of the marathon. T-shirt quantities are limited this year so register now! Submit your order for your Wolverines Run T-shirt two weeks prior to the race date.

Yes, I'm a member of the Alumni Association of the University of Michigan, and when this was included with my weekly e-True Blue newsletter:

Wolverines Run is open to AAUM members running in any marathon. When you register, you'll receive a free Coolmax Michigan T-shirt to wear on race day. Not only will the shirt tell everyone you're a Michigan grad, but other Michigan alumni can easily identify you and cheer you on to the finish line. Register today!
I saw the words "marathon," "free," "Michigan," and "T-shirt" and I was like, I am so all over that.

Yes, I realize this means I will be wearing a University of Michigan shirt in an Ohio race. I like to court danger. And Viper, if you run the half marathon, you will be able to recognize me as I zoom past you.

Yeah, because your Eraserhead 'fro doesn't make you distinctive-looking enough, sister.

Kidding! Kidding!

GQH, dude, do you really think I'd let the 'fro flow freely when I run? I learned my lesson on that 20 years ago.

That's what Bondi Bands and really tough hair elastics are for.

Where was I last year? I'm an AAUM member and ran a marathon and didn't get a shirt. I'm not planning to do a full marathon this year - only a few half marathons - so I guess I'll need to wait to get my running Wolverine shirt another year :-(

So unfair. I'm forwarding this to my lame alumni association with a "come on guys, get in the game, not that I would want your dumb shirt anyway" note.

maybe if they charged a nominal fee for the shirts, they could afford to have a professional artist draw the 'wolverine' instead of stealing the hard work of a third grader. Go State!

I thought wolverines had like stripes or something. That just looks like a cuddly granny beaver. Booo.

Maggs said...

That's a great idea. My alumni association is lame.

And you will get a nice view of my shoes after I trip you and retake the lead. O-H!
