With Michigan playing in the national title game on Monday, the Detroit Free Press apparently decided to get the early jump on all those Michigan fans looking to celebrate the school’s second national title by spending a little money. So they prematurely began selling a book entitled, “Blue Heaven: The A-Maize-Ing Story of the Michigan Wolverines’ Return to Glory–and Their Second NCAA Title!” on Amazon.
The only problem is that Michigan didn’t win their second national title and Michigan fans aren’t looking to celebrate by spending a little money. But that hasn’t stopped the paper from continuing to peddle the books to make a few bucks. Because as of Wednesday morning, the book are still being sold on Amazon, at a discounted price of $10.17 of course.
Here’s the festive description of the book.
This commemorative book on Michigan’s 2013 NCAA men’s basketball championship provides a visual account of the Wolverines’ road to glory. Through unique words and images from Michigan’s largest newspaper, the Detroit Free Press, this celebratory book takes readers from the season’s first games in November and on through the exciting 2012–2013 season, the Big Ten tournament, and the road to the Final Four in Atlanta. Including more than 100 color photographs and featuring stars Trey Burke, Tim Hardaway, Jr., and Glen Robinson III and head coach John Beilein, this keepsake book is an essential part of any fan’s collection.
An essential part of any fan’s collection, indeed.
