If your weekend doesn’t look something like this….you’re doing it wrong.

Hey guys!  Living in the U.P. is pretty interesting.  The landscape, the seasons, the people, and also the randomness of our sports interests.  We have our various towns in Ishpeming, Negaunee, & Marquette.  We each choose a specific team to root for in D-I NCAA Football, such as Michigan, Wisconsin, Michigan State, and even Notre Dame.  There are Packer, Lion, Bear, and Viking fans.  There are Tigers, Brewers, & Cubs fans.  Redwings.  Blackhawks.  It never ends!  Not too many places are like ours.  It can get hectic looking up all of these teams and jumping from website to website finding out schedules.  So I’m going to post what I view as “U.P. relevant” sport schedules every weekend.
