A University of Michigan reliever was called in to pitch during a game against Iowa earlier this week. As he approached the bullpen door, he tried multiple times to push it open. For the next eight seconds, he had a great battle with the door. He pushed, the door resisted.
But he was not deterred. He was a “Michigan man,” after all. In perhaps the greatest strategical move since Wellington at Waterloo, the pitcher switched gears and pulled.
And just like that, the door relented. The pitcher had scored an important victory, both for himself and “Michigan men” everywhere.
