Dave Plati is feeding squirrels.
What, YOU don't feed rats with tails from your office window? Plati does, as I was shocked to find out Friday afternoon. The veteran Colorado sports information director has a friendly relationship with a couple of squirrels outside his office here in Boulder. OK, that wounded weird. Please, keep reading.
Plats has one of those windows that crank open. The squirrels have become accustomed to climbing almost into Plati's office for their treat, which on this day is peanuts.
You know you're in Boulder when a squirrel is feeding a squirrel.
Just kiddling, Dave.• How bad having things gotten at Michigan? The Wolverines' spring game will be played Saturday at a high school.
There is an explanation. The Big House is undergoing renovations so the game is being moved to Sailine (MIch.) HIgh School.
The game will be closed to the general public. Saline cannot accomadate the 20,000 or so fans that usually watch the spring game at Michigan Stadium. This is one of the most anticipated spring games in the country but crazy-go-nuts Michigan fans will be able to watch the game on the Big Ten Network. I knew the BTN would come in handy some day.
