HELL YES

March 28, 2012

HELL YES

Hell was first settled in 1838 by George Reeves and his family.  Farmers would come into town to grind their flour at his mill and would also, uh, overindulge in his whiskey.  So it wasn't uncommon for wagons to return home without their drivers.  When the State of Michigan asked George what to call his town in 1841, he said "Call it Hell for all I care, everyone else does."

 

Grab a Hell Yes unisex shirt or one in the women's cut.

TODAY IN 1979

TODAY IN 1979

Today in 1979, Earvin "Magic" Johnson led MSU to its first NCAA national championship against Larry Bird and Indiana State. The game marked the beginning of the famous Magic vs Bird rivalry and remains the highest rated game in the history of televised college basketball. Michigan State won 75-64.

1936 RED WINGS

March 24, 2012

1936 RED WINGS

Today in 1936, the Detroit Red Wings won the longest Stanley Cup game in history.  Against the Montreal Maroons, they played 60 minutes of regulation followed by 116 minutes of overtime on their way to their first championship.

 

116 minutes of overtime?!  Yet another reason to love the Motor City.

THE MITTEN BREWING CO OPENS THIS SPRING

March 22, 2012

THE MITTEN BREWING CO OPENS THIS SPRING

We're very lucky to live in a state with so much great beer.  Microbeers are a delicious treat during the dog days of summer and when we heard that The Mitten Brewing Company decided to pair great local beer with a vintage baseball theme, we couldn't wait to go check them out. Unfortunately for us, they're not opening until this Spring in an incredible old firehouse in Grand Rapids.  Inside, you'll be regaled with Tigers memorablia, including authentic stadium seats from Tiger Stadium.

 

This vintage shirt was designed exclusively for the brewery to celebrate Detroit Tigers teams of yore. During the early 20th century, the Tigers uniforms were greyish cotton with navy print.  These impossibly soft shirts are inspired by Detroit's rich baseball heritage.  Nab one at The Mitten Brewery or get one now by joining their Mug Club.

 

Drink local, folks.  You'll be glad you did.

 

Love,

The Mitten State

YES MICHIGAN

March 18, 2012

 

 

In 1987, Michigan celebrated it's sesquicentennial.  Called "YES M!CH!GAN", these commercials ran on TV spots during the same year.

 

Not to be confused with the earlier campaign titled "Say Yes To Michigan".

ITS GONNA BE A GREAT DAY

March 15, 2012

 

 

This Kellogg's commercial from 1980 makes us smile.  Mostly because the company is from Battle Creek, Michigan.

 

Another reason to smile: over 70 degrees in Michigan this week, in March no less.  "It's gonna be a great day!"

 

A third reason to smile: you can get discounts from TMS by sharing us with friends.  $5 per friend!  Check out Mitten Money.

BUBBA SMITH NO. 1

BUBBA SMITH NO. 1

On this day in 1967, the number one overall draft pick was Bubba Smith out of MSU.  Four of the top eight picks were from Michigan State that year. Bubba went to the Baltimore Colts and won Super Bowl V in 1970 with them.

AND THATS WHY WE MAKE FAYGO

Totally classic Faygo commercial from the 1970s.  It was filmed in Detroit, on the Boblo Boat.  Ah, memories.  And who can forget those classic Faygo cans?

 

 

Comic books and rubber bands

Climb into the tree top

Falling down and holding hands

Tricycles and red pop
