In general, I hate rap. I can honestly claim to have never listened to a Jay Z song from beginning to end. Kanye West either. However, ten years ago, the volume was going all the way up every time Because I Got High came on the radio.
Only Clevelanders will appreciate this, but every instance where an attorney spews that boilerplate defense, I think of the Elk & Elk brother with the shoe polish-black combover. Fun fact: they opened an office right across from Metro because why chase ambulances when you can park right next to them? Savvy.
I think you just hit why Hoke will never be loved in Ann Arbor. He does sound like a union rep, or the guy who supervises press operators. Michigan fans want a guy who drops his r's, wears a suit with tails, and sports a Mr. Peanut monocle. For all the grief given Brady, he just seems like a regular Joe Sixpack who lucked into a job he's obviously way unqualified to perform.
