Born and raised in Michigan before leaving the state in 1987, David became a Michigan football fan in the early 1970’s and spent Saturday’s listening to Bob Ufer announce games. He went to his first game in 1974 when Michigan beat MSU 21-7. One of the most memorable games he attended was in 1981 when Michigan fell behind Illinois 21-7 in the first quarter and stormed back to win 70-21. David has been writing a blog and monthly newspapers op-ed pieces for his local paper in northern California since 2010. GO BLUE!
