Oklahoma School Forces Kindergartener To Take Off His Michigan Shirt Because They Are Afraid Of Hokeamania
Fox – Michigan Wolverine football apparently is not only frowned upon in the state of Ohio, but also in Oklahoma. An Oklahoma City 5-year-old student was forced to turn his maize and blue T-shirt inside-out by the elementary school principal, according to a report by KWTV News 9. Although he couldn’t sport his family’s favorite school colors, he can wear an Oklahoma Sooners or Oklahoma State Cowboys shirt. The policy has the kindergartener’s mother outraged. “They should really worry about academics. It wasn’t offensive. He’s 5,” she told News 9.
This is just a tiny window into what life is like as a Michigan man. Th jealousy and hatred that we encounter everyday. It is all part of the territory that comes along with having the best athletic program, best academic program and best looking alumni in the country. Michigan makes people sweat. Makes people feel insecure about their own lives. So it’s only natural everybody wants to take a shot at the king. Doesn’t matter if you are in Ohio or Oklahoma. And no story proves it more than this. But what this school and the rest of the country fail to realize though is you can take the man out of the Michigan shirt, but you can’t take the Michigan out of the man. And therein lies the difference.
