Okay, so Michigan chose Brady Hoke over Kevin Sumlin. We've all made mistakes in our choices in life.
Ryan: Okay. I suspect you'll have me beat either because you made more bad choices or remember them better.
Spencer: I left the country for work during our nation's biggest job boom.
Ryan: I took a semester of Arabic just because. Joakim Noah was in the class. For a day.
Spencer: I took intensive Russian at eight in the morning five days a week as a freshman. I chose English as a major over anything else.
Ryan: I also chose English as a major, and in one semester I had seminars on Philip Roth and Sylvia Plath. This is terrible for one's libido. I was studying for a final instead of watching the South Carolina-Florida game in 2006.
Ryan: Rather than pay for a hotel, I slept in a rural Italian train station. A homeless man insisted on talking to me about the Chicago Bulls. In Italian.
Spencer: Ah! Rather than pay for an hotel, I slept in a rat-infested Taiwanese airport. They turn the AC off at 11 p.m. and it is below the Tropic of Cancer. WE WERE ALONE.
Ryan: I wore a string tie to prom. Actually, that was a great choice. Fuck off, haters.
Spencer: I thought Will Muschamp wasn't a totally bad hire
Spencer: I could have bought some stock in Apple when it was at nothing, and instead chose to take a trip to Paris. IN NOVEMBER.
Spencer: I bought a Dreamcast, thinking "yeah, this shit is forever."
Ryan: Miss u, Crazy Taxi.
Spencer: I chose graduate school and applying to the CIA over, um, "good ideas."
Spencer: No I'm not done I got an invitation to apply to Harvard and threw it in the garbage because "I don't want to be cold."
Ryan: That's legit.
Spencer: I had a chance to do an all-access piece in 2007 on a small team going to a big team's stadium to play a football game. I thought it was too expensive and didn't do it, since they weren't going to win anyway. That team was App State and the game was Michigan. I have made bad choices.
Ryan: I was 22 and free to make my own choices. Nobody forced me or pressured me into it. But I did it all the same. I went to law school.
Spencer: Fuck, you win.
