'M' is for Michael...and Michigan!


Image Exclusive to Fassinating Fassbender

Just when I was at the height of feeling tired and stressed out with exams and work, and today is a miserably cold snowy day, Michael Fassbender's agency email me a damn photo of this boy wearing the University of Michigan cap I dropped off at Troika HQ in London on December 1st! When I opened the email, I just screamed... I scared my cat out of a catnip induced coma! I cannot believe it... Michael got the Christmas care package and he took a photo of him wearing the hat... his sexy way of saying 'I got it. And don't I look good?'

If any of you who live on planet Earth are familiar with the University of Michigan, my alma mater, here in Ann Arbor, Michigan, you know that our simple 'M' logo just kicks ass and it's a universal symbol of kick assery (Education and Athletics). Days before my London trip, I went to a gift shop in downtown A2, Occasionally Gifts, that has really cool U of Michigan/Detroit souvenirs there. Apparently the cap that I got for Michael is a brand new design and just arrived at the store. It's not your typical cheesy baseball cap, it has a suede like material fabric, and a smooth buckle type fastener neatly tucked away in the back. The word 'Michigan' is on the back in a downlow text style. It's a very handsome cap - I have to go back and get me one. And most U of M caps have 'Michigan' on the front, or an obnoxious 'M' stamped on front. Well, as you can see, this cap has the 'M' logo towards the side and it's a little smaller than the norm. Perfecto!

In my letter to Michael, I told him how I have noticed in pap photos that he likes to wear caps, and the 'M' on this Michigan cap can simply stand for Michael. And as we see, he likes it. Thank you Jesus, mission accomplished!

I know some of you thought my idea was fantasy land crap, but if you don't know now that I don't play around when it comes to the Fassbender, you have proof once more.

Thank you Troika and Michael for this Christmas gift to me! xoxo

That is so cool...I mean he did not have to BUT he did and that's what's so impressive.

Simone said...

I know Chele Belle, he didn't have to do it, but he did and it just demonstrates what a wonderfully kind and generous man he is! :)

The cap´s a great idea! Well done Simone! And how cute of him to send you this picture! He looks great... so happy. Guess he´s fully enjoying his work. Did you hear the news about him maybe playing Snow White´s hunter? That´d be awesome! I love fairy tales. Well, most of them. :)

New fan of Fassy's since XMFC and I've been lurking on your site for awhile now and wanted to say how much I love it! From the interview to the gift, I just can't help but be admired at how professional you are (which is so difficult when it comes to Fassy!). Also, I'm sure you've seen but I love that he is still wearing the hat out and about.. makes us love him even more!

Simone said...

Hi Elaine, as a matter of fact, no, I haven't seen him in pictures wearing it anywhere else. If you can bring those to my attention, I'd appreciate it.

Thank you so much for all your kind words!

Wow simone you are amazing! The gift is so cute! And Fassy makes it even more perfect. It was a very sweet detail of you. My heart feels even more tender and crazy for this guy... he's so sweet is giving me a toothache :-)

Ariel said...

Cute story !

Jordan said...

I have read this awhile back, but have not commented simply because I didn't want to spam this website with my posts. lol!

But what more can I say than that which has already been said? He looks freaking good in it! I still dig the english driver cap look, but his grin in this is just fantastic. I worship how he went about responding!

Good for you Simone! :D I would feel so special and bulletproof if something like that happened to me. haha.

*but, since we are bringing in college festivities.. I must say "Go Utes!" but that's a neutral chant as I don't think UofU and Michigan have much of any history against each other.

beauty ^^

Dionne said...

I saw another pic of Michael in your hat! He actually wears it out and about. I'm sure you've seen it by now though.

Simone said...

Dionne, please send me the link or email the picture to me. Don't assume I have seen it, I have only seen a fraction of pictures of Michael. Thanks.

Wow this is so amazing. He's such a nice guy, how could he get more adorable than this? It's such an honor but then again, it's so beautiful when someone that spends so many time promoting a public figure gets thanked this way. It's so nice to know that he's such a caring man, I wish he wasn't so delicious. Now I'm feeling just as a teenager again! Damn you, Michael!

Simone said...

Hey there! Thanks for your comment! Michael really is a sweet man who loves all his fans! :D

Tania said...

He is very sweet and grateful. Congratulations Simone!! He loved your gift!

Dionne said...

How nice, and Michael looks really good here! I can't believe he actually posed in it.

As a fellow Wolverine and Fassinator, this pic just makes my heart smile. If only I could get a pic of him too!! *tear* lol It goes to show you that he really cares about his fans and that he's genuinely a humble person. It really makes me happy when I see my fave celebs in Michigan gear. HAIL HAIL TO MICHIGAN....the Champions of the WEST....GO BLUE!!! ^______^ Congrats!

Simone said...

^Oh wow! A fellow UofM alumni AND a Fassinator! It's lovely to make your acquaintance and I hope to see you around here again.

Michael has been spotted wearing his U of M cap in NY about 6-7 months after he received it, so it confirms that he liked it and has used it.

Thanks!

This is awesome :) I'm hoping to send him something but there seems to be two different addresses for Troika - do you know which is the right one to get something to him? Thanks! Keep up the good work on here. Em x

Simone said...
