A large, heavily forested island (49.44 square miles) just east of Sault Ste. Marie, MI. Home to about 633 people (as of the 2000 U.S. census), it's quite possibly home to more deer than people--not that that's a bad thing...

Not much happened (or happens) here on a world-affecting scale: however, it was once nominated as a location for the United Nations. The University of Michigan operates the Chase Osborn Preserve, a 3200-acre nature preserve where former governor of Michigan Chase S. Osborn (1911-1913) is buried.

Quiet and thinly populated, yet fairly-close knit, Sugar Island Township is fairly typical for the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. There are some small bed-and-breakfasts and resorts, as well as at least one restaurant and bar (the Islander House and Hilltop Bar, respectively). It's also a great home for U.P. Princes or deer camps.
Person #1: You've been to Sugar Island?
Person #2: Yeah... it wasn't too bad. Really quiet, though...

V.
to bring bad luck by accident/circumstance; to jinx.

Taken from "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner", a narrative poem in which a sailor shoots and kills an albatross, a seabird said to bring good luck to sailors. The killer is cursed to spend eternity wandering the Antarctic Ocean unless he confesses his sin.

He drifts alone for several years, but finally prays for forgiveness and is saved, gaining a respect for God's creation in the process (the moral of the poem).

Invented at Michigan Lutheran High School.
Bob: We lost the football playoffs; who shot the albatross?
Alice: I did; I accidentally spilled some salt at lunch...

Alice: Don't cross your legs when playing poker. That's the poker equivalent of shooting an albatross.

Bob: If you end up on the cover of a Madden game, you'll shoot the albatross, so to speak, and end your career.
