HBO Sports – Michigan vs. Ohio State -The Rivalry

ESPN calls it the greatest sports rivalry in North America

Through rare film footage and interviews with top players and coaches, this HBO Sports documentary chronicles the longtime college football rivalry between the Michigan Wolverines and the Ohio State Buckeyes. From the first game in 1897 to the hotly contested and eagerly anticipated showdowns of the 21st century, this program covers the origins, history and traditions of one of college football’s biggest rivalries.

Before the 1970 Michigan-Ohio State game, Rex Kern, the Buckeyes quarterback, recalled Coach Woody Hayes’s nervousness. “‘Don’t you know who we play this week, don’t you know who it is?’” Kern said, quoting Hayes and trying to imitate his gravelly, hectoring voice. “‘My God, it’s Michigan, it’s Michigan!’ And he’s crying and tears are coming down his cheeks and I thought, ‘Whoa, the old man has really lost it.’”

This is a great video to watch and understand more about classic sports rivalries. The rivalry is so intense, I am wondering if the producers of this video had to flip a coin, to decide which team came first in the title.

Watch Billionaire Bill Gates Trying to Guess Grocery Store Prices

The “smartest guy in the room,” who happens to also be one of the richest guys in the world, is clueless when it comes to something as simple going to the grocery store.

The joke is how these billionaires get flown around the world in private jets, picked up in private limousines and delivered to luxurious hotel suites. Then to show up the next day on a stage, with thunderous applause, to tell people and governments how to run their lives. Like these billionaires know better.

The sport of Trial has lost one of its Kings with the sad and recent passing of Sweden’s Ulf Karlson who lost his fight against illness earlier this week. Born in Alvangen, Sweden on 6th March 1952, the sixty-five-year-old Scandinavian rider was one of the true masters of the slow speed discipline and captured the FIM Trial World Championship back in 1980. This was the first world championship for Montesa.

“Today, all the Montesa family are in mourning. We have lost a great friend, an athlete and a great world champion. We are really sorry for the loss of Ulf Karlson, who had a long-lasting professional relationship and friendship with us for many years. We send our deepest condolences to the family and all the friends in the world of trial. Rest in peace. Repsol Honda Team, the official team of Montesa-Honda would like to express their deepest sympathy for the loss of Ulf Karlson and wish to offer their condolences to the family in this difficult moment.”  – Miquel Cirera, Team Manager

During his esteemed career Karlson recorded fifteen Grand Prix victories and finished on the podium a total of 40 times during the eight seasons that he contested the FIM Trial World Championship.

Aged just nineteen Ulf scored his first World championship points at his home GP back in 1971, but he had to wait until 1974 before he achieved his maiden win on the World stage. After securing his one and only FIM gold medal in 1980, the respected Swedish rider stepped down from the World series in 1983.

Back in his native Sweden Ulf was an eight-time winner of his national championship and twice victorious in the Scandinavian series.

Recognized not only as a great champion of Trial, but also a true gentleman, Ulf will be greatly missed by the global Trial community.

The FIM Family extends its condolences to Ulf’s family and friends.
