Gridiron sacrilege

My ,boyfriend's mom inad-
vertently committed heresy this
Thanksgiving weekend.
Disclaimer: She has many
redeemingqualities, like adelight-
ful laugh, bountiful common sense
and intuitive thrift. But on Thurs-
day morning, her knowledge of
Michigan sports was severely
lacking.
At about 10 a.m., I wandered
into the dining room to find
her and her husband enjoy-
ing coffee. She spotted my T-
shirt, which I had bought on the
day former Michigan coach Bo
Schembechler died.
The image on the shirt is an old

bechler."
"Oh," she said.
May the Michigan football gods
forgive her.

A mystery janitor
in Angell Hall
About a month ago, I went to
the Fishbowl at 2 a.m. to write a
paper due the next day. I hadn't
read the book, and I needed six
pages. Not good.
At about 5, I started falling
asleep, so I went to get a drink. On
my way back, a janitor walked out

tan, who seemed strangely happy
see me, started to approach me.
onfused, I tried to dodge him by
eering to the other side of the
allway.
No dice. "Jeff!" he called. Star-
led, since that was in fact my
ame and I had no idea who he
vas, I asked, tentatively, "Hey,
ow are you?" "Great," he said,
roceeding to tell me about his
rive to work that morning. My
nind raced: Who could this guy

o sleep!" he called after me.
Three weeks later, it was like
othing had changed. Paper due
