It’s almost time for the Badger Ferry Boat to begin crossing Lake Michigan again with cars a plenty however it won’t be this particular Badger. This Badger only crosses streets and avenues. It is used in parades and for special promotions.

One has to wonder about the name for this Michigan ferry boat. Badger? That sounds like something from Wisconsin? Maybe a new ferry boat could be named Wolverine or an existing boat renamed that? That has more of a Michigan feel to it. Now I don’t want to appear to be “badgering” the ferry boat industry with this sort of thing, but Badger, like it or not, does not represent Michigan well.

You know, even The Spartan would make a difference!
