The Jeep Grand Cherokee is a fine road-tripping machine. How do I know this? Early Sunday morning, I returned home to the Ann Arbor area after driving through the night all the way from Saint Paul, Minnesota, where I saw the Michigan Wolverines fail to clinch their tenth NCAA men’s ice hockey Division I championship, falling to the Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs in an overtime thriller by a score of 3 to 2. Like all Michigan hockey fans (and particularly the meager handful who made the eleven-hour trip to the Twin Cities), I was disappointed by the loss. I’m certain, though, that it didn’t bother me as much as it did some folks. You see, I’ve attended thirteen Frozen Fours since 1993 -- regardless of whether Michigan has earned its way to the annual championship weekend -- because I am a fan of college hockey as much as I’m a U of M fan.
