Izzo's Championship Performance

We've had a poll up on the right side of this blog for a few days now, asking whether Izzo Goes to Broadway will be terrible, tolerable or Tony-worthy. Unlike most of them, which are a matter of opinion, this one has a right answer.


I say that not knowing how Tom Izzo's performance went. He can't dance. Lord knows the man can't sing - especially with how hoarse he gets after a season of yelling at MSU's basketball team. But that's not the point. Quite frankly, I don't care if he fell on his ass while doing the chorus line kick step.

Izzo, according to some folks who went to the show, sold out the Wharton Center's Cobb Great Hall in the name of charity,with most tickets going for between $55 and $150. Final figures aren't in, but the show figures to pull in at least $135,000 for Izzo's favorite charity, Coaches vs. Cancer.

And that, folks, is a championship level performance.
