    I remember Barry Larkin saying (in an interview at some point) that while he was playing baseball at Michigan, when once seeing him, Bo said something like, "Why don't you come over here and play a real sport."
    teach tolerance.

    One year at spring training, Barry was signing autographs for several of us and somebody nearby hollered, "Go Blue!" And Barry responeded with a, "Go Blue" of his own. I spoke up and said, "No, no, no...Go Bucks!" And Barry replied with: "As long as they're not playing the Blue." Which kinda made me think that Barry was cool with the Bucks (at least somewhat).
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.
