Unfortunately, I was raised poorly and grew up rooting for U of M (despite the fact that nobody in my family ever went there). I still rooted for MSU, but didn't really follow them. Fast-forward to junior year of high school, when I was taking a journalism class and member of the colorguard. Our student teacher was from MSU and was a member of the Spartan Colorguard, so that made a huge impression on me. I ended up getting in to both schools, but as I wanted to study journalism, MSU was the way to go. Plus, their colorguard was better. I was completely in love by the end of Welcome Week and that hasn't changed. Best decision I ever made.
I think my enthusiasm for MSU has overflowed to my mom, too--she's the one who raised me a Wolverine (she went to WMU), but she now cheers for MSU when we play scUM.

Before you ask, yes, I am a girl.
My dad graduated from MSU. So did I. So will my son.
Liked MSU as a wee one, I think in part because I liked being contrarian and most of my extended family rooted for U of M. My brother went to U of M, at which point I was basically neutral, but ended up going to MSU for the James Madison College. After two years I transferred (MSU didn't offer the degree program I ended up wanting to pursue), but by that point, season football tickets and the ascendant Spartan basketball team had locked me in for life. Now I live in Ann Arbor, work for U of M, live about 3 blocks from the Big Hole (I'll be the guy blasting the Spartan fight song out of my windows during MSU-U of M gameday), and pretty much all of my close friends are U of M alums. Twilight Zone. Love driving back to EL though and walking campus.

I wish I could just up vote that post everyday.
Respert is my all time favorite Spartan regardless is sports. More than J-Rich an Ryan Miller.
One of the worst feelings of my life was watching the end of the Weber State game. Shawn deserved so much more than that.
