BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
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)
