Two journalists who cared more about Michigan-Michigan State and less about who called the game were Jemele Hill of ESPN and Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated.
Given our dueling loyalties today, I’m proposing a wager:
If Michigan State beats Michigan, I have to send out a TwitPic from an iconic New York City location, holding up a sign (or someone else holding it) that reads:
JEMELE HILL AND ESPN RULE.
If Michigan wins, you take your talents to South Beach and TwitPic a sign from an iconic Miami location that reads:
RICHARD DEITSCH AND SI RULE.
Hill was game, and so were the Spartans, cruising to an easy 34-17 victory over Denard Robinson and the Wolverines.
As you can see above, Deitsch was a man of his word, snapping a photo of his sign in front of the legendary Radio City Music Hall.
