Maybe it is because I always take not when I hear it, but does it seem to you guys that whenever a local guy (whether from Michigan or from a Michigan university) is playing a nationally televised game, the broadcasters tend to point them out?
For example, Doc Emrick always seems to mention Abby and Mills coming from State. Pierre just mentioned Torey Krug is from Livonia/MSU.
When watching Rangers games, Hagelin from UofM is always mentioned.
You guys hear this?
