First Lady Nancy Reagan was in
Michigan the other day, undoubtedly with
a two-fold mission. She wanted to make
some speeches, shake the hands of some of
the "common folk," but more importantly
Nancy wanted to play Griddes.
Unfortunately Nancy went to Lansing.
Sure there's a Big Ten school near Lansing
but it hardly possesses the intellect to play
Griddes. While it may not be possible to
remedy our First Lady's plight, you can
prevent the same thing from happening to
you by grabbing a map and finding the

And remember: playing Griddes is a
moral and decent thing to do. Also if you
win, you will receive a free, one-item,
small pizza from Pizza Bob's - and their
pizza will stick to the heart and fiber of
your American soul.
