You forgot to mention "beer"!

If you are going to the bowl game brace yourselves. You won't run into a fan base with the propensity to drink like Badger fans.

I had to travel to WI with a few southerners. They had no idea what walleye was and I couldn't wait to get some. I didn't even try to push deep fried curds to them. LOL.

Or pick up a copy of Misery Bay, one of a series of mystery novels by Steve Hamilton which are set on the UP. The weather, culture, and the setting in general is a key plot elements in his novels. Fun reads.

Deep seated hatred of the Chicago Bears probably qualifies as a tie that binds. As a Chicagoan, and having only spent the last two years of high school in Wisconsin before college, I have to confess that I root for the Bears. Which is only a little less pointless than rooting for the Cubs, unfortunately.

I'm from Seattle, and a lot of the Grunge movement came about from the Punk Rock scene.. Bands like Husker Du, V-Femmes, Replacements were all idols of bands like Nirvana, Mudhoney, Soundgarden, etc.

The Band is still high quality it terms of how they sound and how they march. I realized this when I saw how terrible TCU's band was compared to ours and don't even get me started on the joke that is Stanford's band. However, our band is extremely dated. Leckrone has been recyling sets like every 6 years and they don't take any risks or try to appease a younger audience much. They don't need to play like pop songs or anything, I just mean take a look at what Ohio State's band has been doing lately.

Now don't say that to anyone in the band or band alumni, the UW band is a cult and they will defend it to the death. They also are insane partiers. The UW band would easily out drink and out crazy any frat on campus.

I have a lot of respect for the band, but they need some new blood making some decisions at least.

I havent read all the previous post. The TV "How the States Got their Lines" told this story. If I remember right it was kind of a trade off. It was about Water Access and maybe something to do with the Toledo war. LOL Anyways That is an Awesome/Entertaining, very Interesting show that comes on the History Channel
