micah holmquist's irregular thoughts and links
Welcome to the musings and notes of a Cadillac, Michigan based writer named Micah Holmquist, who is bothered by his own sarcasm.
Please send him email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Holmquist's full archives are listed here.
Sites Holmquist trys, and often fails, to go no more than a couple of days without visiting (some of which Holmquist regularly swipes links from without attribution)
Blogs that for one reason or another Holmquist would like to read on at least something of a regular basis (always in development)

more proof that Micah lets relatively trivial things anger him
My beloved Spartans lost to Purdue, 45-42, in a game played at East Lansing that ended a few minutes ago.
MSU is now 4-7 with one game remaining.
I could say that MSU deserved to lose because the defense gave up three turnovers and the defense couldn't stop Purdue without forcing a turnover. (They did force five.) I could say that while I would have preferred a win but that if they had to lose, it was nice that at least it was a competitive loss, their first since the Notre Dame game eight weeks ago. And I suppose I could say I should reread a certain essay that would once again remind me of how irrational sports fandom is.
I could do all of these things but right now I just feel like asking, HOW AND WHY WERE PURDUE RECEIVERS ALLOWED TO COMMITT PASS INTERFERENCE WITH ABANDON ON TWO FOURTH DOWN PLAYS?
Thank you for letting me vent my rage.
