Blue Devils: Step it Up


Blue Devils have a long and noble history of pranks. Most recently, they phoned-in this weak-sauce effort pictured above. Sure the days of disassembling a VW Beetle and then reassembling it on the roof are over. I mean, if you lack the manpower to move a compact automobile to the roof of Grosse Pointe South, you can always list the school for sale at an unbelievably low price with the office’s phone number. This might fly at Grosse Pointe North, but we Blue Devils expect more out of ourselves.

I am hoping this was just like a hors d’oeuvre to a magnum opus as seniors sign-off at the end of their high school career. So, I’ll be watching and waiting for this generation of Blue Devils to impress me. Let’s hope I am not disappointed. Though, I rather be a disappointed Blue Devil than, well, anything else.

America’s Top Export


Artist’s rendering of what would have happened if Ronald Reagan was alive during the Revolutionary War.

Today is Memorial Day, a day we come together to celebrate the sacrifice of the men and women who delivered America’s greatest export. Ass kickings.

When our founding fathers consecrated this great nation they did so with the blood of tyrants. They knew that our bright outpost of freedom would be under constant threat from the enemies of freedom, and they were right. Through the brief, but great, history of our nation we have faced many threats and each time we have sent our persecutors home butt-hurt. We owe this to our enormous defense budget and the men and women who go forth to rain pain and suffering upon our enemies.

So this Memorial Day I urge you all to celebrate the freedom we all hold so dear the way they would want us to. With seersucker and ill-advised quantities of red meat and liquor, because we’re American, that’s why.



I Am GP For Life

My name is GP For Life and while many of my enlightened brethren have fled Southeast Michigan and our solitary island of wealth and privilege, I stayed behind to prepare for them a seat in our glorious kingdom. Today, the future has never been brighter and I am here to stand as a beacon to our wayward progeny beckoning them home, to come join our legions vast and to conquer what is rightfully ours. This primitive website will be the trumpet that echos across the lands to summon them home.

In addition to acting as a guide to generations of scions, I will expound on and help shape the community dialogue involving a variety of subjects. Some will include current events on a local level and important and oft-overlooked sports like yachting and flip cup. We will also discuss larger issues like economics and demographic shifts. I may also, from time-to-time, tell of stories from my all too prolonged adolescence.

With that, I urge you to charge with me once more into the breach and take the future that our noble forefathers envisioned for us. I am GP For Life, follow me if you dare.
