Horace Prettyman, Michigan man, requests your presence under protest at a footballing contest between the Michiganders' collection of footballing Wolverines. The location shall be at the field of play on the University of Michigan. The opponent shall be the Papists of South Bend, rich in starch, poor in moral fiber, and no doubt soon in the debt of the University of Michigan for one free defeat. Michigan men always provide receipts. We will be happy to supply them with one, though their business practices and heritage suggest accounting may be a capacity lacking in their ilk.

This game will be played under protest of one HORACE PRETTYMAN, ESQ. after the unnatural addition of arc lighting and other radiant fluorescent elements to the sacred fields of Michigan. It is the belief of Horace Prettyman and all Michigan Men that the night is for recuperation, the procreation of children, and the convivial consumption of health tonics over conversation with warrior-poets by roaring but tasteful fires.

This is your evening thread. Please, knit yourself something of use from it, for winter is coming and it will be cold soon.
