Michigan State Should Really Proofread Their Locker Room Signage
Anybody who writes words for a living (or even as a hobby) makes mistakes.
Back to English class, Spartans.
Best efforts, constant proofreading, there are all sorts of checks and balances to ensure that words conveyed on a page (or an epitaph or a statue or a billboard...or a sign in a locker room) are spelled correctly and used properly, and convey thoughts accurately.
But even the best of us fail sometimes.
Hell, I fully expect to find at least two or three mistakes in this very post even after it's published on the site. I'm not perfect.
However, I would like to think that we hold our institutions of higher learning to some sort of higher standard.
Looking right at you, Michigan State!!
(The audible gasp you all just heard was every University of Michigan student and alum cringing at my calling Michigan State an "institution of higher learning." Yeah, yeah, we got it, Wolverines... "If ya can't go to college, go to STATE! CLAP CLAP!! If ya can't go to college, go to STATE! CLAP CLAP!!")
Michigan State's football program is in a pretty good place right now, having just come off of a 2013 season in which they lost one game (GO IRISH!) and walked away with a Rose Bowl title and some serious momentum heading into the 2014 season. The Big Ten is a very navigable conference in 2014 and Mark Dantonio's team is primed for a run at this year's inaugural College Football Playoff.
So football season is here, and with football season comes new and exciting cheeseball inspirational signage on the walls of facilities and locker rooms across the nation.
Michigan State recently spent $24.5 million on upgrades to their facilities, but apparently $24.5 million just doesn't buy a good proofreader these days. Amidst the bluster and hyperbole of this sign, can you spot the spelling error?
