The State of affairs


On Friday, Oct. 8, at the Oakland County Circuit Court, it was a “house divided” as Michigan and Michigan State fans warmed up for the big game with a tailgate luncheon that featured the finest in football cuisine. Circuit Court Judge Mary Ellen Brennan (below), a proud Spartan alum, is the brains behind the annual affair, which drew upward of 120 fans of the respective schools.

“What I like about it is that it gives everyone a chance to mingle, folks you see just a few seconds a day,” said Brennan. “No one is neutral on this game, so there is lots of spirit.  Court staff drop off flags and bowls in the week leading up. People bring their favorite dish to share, usually plated on a State or U-M platter.”
