Introducing Spartan Shadows’ newest writer, ChopMan

Don’t mind my rock collection, I’m here to talk about MSU.

Behind the mask, ChopMan is just an average guy that goes to sleep every night dreaming of an MSU national title.

I’m going to be perfectly honest, this is my first time writing and publicly sharing something that is longer than 280 characters. Will it be good? No idea. Funny? Not sure. Grammatical errors? Absolutely.

I know March Madness is top of mind for everyone but allow me to (re)introduce myself: MY NAME IS HOVVV (had to)… Yes, I’m ChopMan and my name is based off the mantra of a coach and a football team. I’m obsessed like many of you.  I love how it brings a group of men together to work towards a goal bigger than themselves.

On top of the sappiness though, it’s kinda funny how leaning into a bit can become an entire identity and bring humor to the rollercoaster of feelings brought on by college sports.

You guys either A) have no idea who the heck I am or B) know me from my ridiculous twitter antics and stone collection.  Yes. I ate pancakes for 100-plus days. Yes. I’m a grown man with a stone collection in his backyard. But there are other things you should know about me:

Things I love (other than MSU)

  • Memes
  • Edibles
  • Walks on the beach
  • ChopWoman

Things I hate (other than U of M)

  • Burners with bad vibez
  • Ice bath bros
  • Cat ladies

I’m really excited to share with you my thoughts on all things MSU, no matter how stupid or genius they are. At the end of the day, my goal is to make you chuckle and fall deeper in love with the school. Behind the mask, I’m just an average guy that goes to sleep every night dreaming of an MSU national title. So here’s to the mantra, national titles, and of course… pancakes.

Keep Chopping ?,


Lover of pancakes, coffee and HopWoman. Nothing I say should be taken seriously. If you have any complaints, please reach out to my mom. SD4L.
