Team Michigan is Born

Sunday, February 12th, 2006

Team Michigan ButtonWell, I got a few bites on the Team Michigan idea so I’m going ahead with it. My web page listing the Founding Five is at http://ColorJoy.com/olympics/teammichigan.htm

I know the button is hokey and imperfect (especially the upper peninsula) but I don’t want to take myself too seriously and I think it’s funny that people in my state show each other where they live by pointing to their right palm (assuming the lower peninsula, anyway). I had never seen this portable map thing until I went to college and it sort of still cracks me up. For those far enough away to not know what my state’s map really looks like, Peek Here.

I’ve lived in the Lansing area (Lansing is the capitol city) since approximately 1962 (was born in Minnesota in 1958, then lived in Boston for the year before we came to Michigan). Well, for 2.5 years I lived in Mt. Pleasant, which is an hour north of Lansing, then I moved back here. I’ve been within 25 miles of the Capitol building pretty much all of my life, though I twice have been convinced I was moving… once to Chicago and once to Mexico (the country). There must be a magnet in this town, because I never seem to really leave.

I’m going to set up either a yahoo email group or something like a Myspace web page for the team to use for communicating if they wish. However, I’m working in a half hour so that needs to be delayed a bit.

If you want to join, read the web page and let me know you are in. For now you will need to send me an email with your details. Tell me what project you’re working on if you wish. Photos optional but welcome.
