Michigan Expats Podcast– More Music! Episode 13

 

Michigan Expats – Culture – See All Culture

By Mr. Sig

Another pallet of good songs lined up for you this week.  Some old, some new, but all enjoyable.

For those of you new to the blog – each week I record a podcast featuring music by Michigan artists. If you like any (or all) of the songs, then I encourage you to purchase them on Amazon.  I need to find a way to get a kick back from that.  Ahh well, at least this keeps the music industry lawyers away.

Tribute to Sparky Anderson

We've seen enough stories about Sparky Anderson.  Here at Michigan expats, we understand the great contribution he made to baseball, and more importantly to us.. to our beloved Tigers.  We owe it to him to laud him as a great Michigan figure.

That being said, I'll let the other news outlets post their tribute videos to Sparky. I think the below one is more enjoyable.

WARNING - THIS INCLUDES A LOT OF FOUL LANGUAGE.

How hard can this be to answer.

YES

Michigan has a great offense, but only a high school level defense.  This is the most obvious problem with the team and it needs to be hammered home until the team does something about it.
