Michigan/Michigan State game.

4. Half the change in your pocket is Canadian

5. You drive 86 mph on the highway and pass on the right.

10. You've had to switch on the heat and the A/C in the same day.

11. You bake with SODA and drink a POP.

12. The movie "Escanaba in Da Moonlight" wasn't funny. You consider it a documentary.
