Happy Thursday, Fancy Oatmeal Readers. It’s an exciting day around the FO house for two reasons:
1. I have become obsessed with the Family Feud with Friends app on my iPad
It brings back childhood memories of watching the episodes hosted by Ray Combs with my grandpa. You play this version against your Facebook friends, and I’m pretty decent. I seem to either know top answers, or none at all. Consider this questions: Who in Hollywood has a great smile? According to their survey, not Brad Pitt or George Clooney.
We’ve surveyed one person, and the top seven answers are on the board.
Name something you wish you never had to do, but once it’s done you’re glad you did.
2. Michigan State plays in their Sweet Sixteen game against Louisville.
In honor of Coach Izzo’s team making another run for the NCAA title, here are some statistics that you should know about the Michigan State Spartans’ basketball program.
- MSU’s men’s basketball team has won the National Championship twice: in 1979 and 2000.
- In 2000, three players from Flint, Morris Peterson, Charlie Bell and Mateen Cleaves,carried the team to its second national title.
- On December 13, 2003, Michigan State and Kentucky played at the most-attended basketball game in history, when they played a match in front of 78,130 at Ford Field, a stadium in Detroit.
- Since 1995, Michigan State has been coached by Tom Izzo, who has a 364–146 record. Izzo’s coaching helped the team make six of twelve NCAA Final Fours from 1999 to 2010, winning the title in 2000.
- Michigan State basketball has been selected for 15 consecutive NCAA tournament bids from 1998 to 2012, making six final fours during that span. This span has provided every four-year player under Tom Izzo the opportunity to play in a final four.
- Michigan State has made it to the final four eight times and has made 25 NCAA Tournament appearances
And if you’re not so much the basketball fan, you should also know that Tom Izzo runs a great weight loss program as well:
