2010-02-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat, and the Michigan recommendations. You mentioned your Finnish ancestry, so I'm hoping you can give me some insight on the Upper Peninsula. Why in the world is it part of Michigan instead of Wisconin? Also, does Mike Bordick qualify as a yooper? I know he was born in Marquette, but I think he went to school in Maine.
(TheFlyingBernard from Acton, MA)
Bordick views himself as a Mainer, which isn't as good as being a Yooper, but Maine is cool, too.

Kevin Tapani was born in Iowa (I think) but went to high school in the UP. Dick Pole is a UP native. The late George Brunet was. John Hiller -- a wonderful man who I had the pleasure of talking to recently -- is from Ontario but has lived in the UP for years.

The Upper Peninsula is part of Michigan because the State got it from Ohio in exchange for Toledo. Seriously. (David Laurila)
2010-02-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm Finnish and from the U.P. as well! Kevin Tapani went to Escanaba HS. My father pitched against George Brunet in youth baseball. When the copper mines were running full bore there was more population and lots of good baseball up there. Visiting Copper Harbor would be a lot of fun for anyone...go in early September when the Fall colors are getting in gear.
(lemppi from Ankeny, IA)
Love the Brunet connection there. Many readers won't be familair with him, but he had a long big league career.

Not as many Finns in the UP as there used to be. When I was growing up, I'd hear it spoken more than just rarely. That is no longer the case when I go back to visit. Times change. (David Laurila)
2008-02-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Wait a tick, you're a fellow Michigander? Where did you go to school? Say eh to the U.P.
(murphy654321 from Waltham, MA)
You see, the hard line questions stop once they realize you're from the land of George Brunet, Dick Pole and Kevin Tapani. (David Laurila)
