We all get a case of the Mondays every now and again. Sometimes it’s just spilling coffee on the way to work. Or how about those times when you hit a major traffic jam and wind up being late to your meeting.

Those days that are grey, cloudy and raining when you just really needed a little ray of sunshine. Or those April snow showers that really make you wonder if there will ever be May flowers this year.

We feel the Mondays even harder when the chips are down.
When our hearts are broken, our shoulders burdened, and our footsteps heavy with the weight of our situations.
When we feel that hope packed up and left town months ago.

We’ve all been there, in one way or another.

But not today. Today, despite the rain, the snow, the hardship and worries, the despair and depression, there is hope. There is a cure for the case of the Mondays that has plagued so many of us for so long.

There is hope.

The Michigan State Spartans have breathed life back into the city that was grey, dismal and down. Over 70,000 Spartan fans flooded to Ford Field Saturday night. The 2009 Final Four had the largest attendance in NCAA history.

And tonight, they play for the NCAA National Championship. They have become the source of hope and joy for so many people. Like James Braddock and Seabiscuit during the Great Depression.

Tonight, the Spartans play for Detroit. They play for us.

Even the fans that bleed Carolina Blue should bleed a little Green tonight.
