Well thats one way to immortalize a famous bad beat. I gotta say though, this guy totally fucked up by not having a taxidermy Jim Harbaugh Chipmunk. If someone wants to empty out $1500 on a piece of historic art in the form of dead chipmunks taxidermied immortalizing the last play of Michigan vs Michigan State,  I would need the details to be down to the t and that would include a dead chipmunk in khaki’s and a Michigan hat looking like he’s ready for war. I mean does this guy even have a little Paul Bunyan trophy? How about capturing the emotion of the crowd? Maybe mix in a couple of pygmy rats with the look of utter disgust and shock. Not saying I don’t enjoy this guys enthusiasm for immortalizing a historic moment, just saying I wouldn’t pay $1500 for it. Maybe like 100 bucks at max.

P.s- If he could do this for the John Elway play where he helicoptered in a touch down but have the chipmunk actually spinning that would be kinda cool too. What other plays would be awesome? Maybe Joe Carter? When Larry Bird stole the ball?
