has released its state by state list of the most searched items for 2016.

And of course, Michigan's most searched term honored the man who knew how to put the biscuit in the basket.

We all Google whatever random thought pops into our heads . . . and we don't seem to really care that Google is keeping records of ALL of that.

The real estate website just finished a study that figured out what people in every state Googled more than anyone else.

And in Michigan, the one thing we searched more than anyone else was the late, great Gordie Howe. Given our love of hockey, when the Red Wing fan favorite passed away on June 10, it seemed we wanted to relive his glory days of four Stanley Cups one more time.

Other highlights of the search list:

  1. Dead celebrities got a lot of attention. Minnesota's top search was Prince . . . Indiana's was Florence Henderson . . . Kentucky's was Muhammad Ali . . . Vermont's was David Bowie . . . and Wyoming's was Gene Wilder.
  2. And in Tennessee, the top search was "Mr. T. dead." He's not.  Apparently they were just double-checking?
  3. The election led to lots of searches as well. New Jersey Googled Donald Trump more than anyone else . . . Idaho's top search was "How did Trump win?" . . . and Alaska's biggest search was the Pizzagate conspiracy theory.
  4. The top search in Ohio was "3-1 lead" . . . because the Cavs came back from a 3-to-1 deficit in the NBA Finals in June, and the Indians lost a 3-to-1 lead in the World Series in November.
  5. And California summed it all up by searching for "2016 worst year ever?" more than any other state.
