Report: South Bend to rename Michigan AvenuePosted: September 18, 2012
The mayor of South Bend has decided to join in the fun that is Michigan Sucks week. As those who have been to South Bend know, one of the main drives through downtown South Bend is disgraced with the name “Michigan Avenue.” After years of ignorance, the mayor appears to have realized this blunder, and renamed the street “Fighting Irish Drive” this morning at an official unveiling.
Unfortunately, the change appears to be temporary intended to make Michigan fans feel even less welcome when they come to town, which is all well and good, but hopefully this will serve as the first step towards abolishing Michigan Avenue permanently.
It’s 2:15pm on September 18, its raining on ND’s campus, and Michigan still sucks.
