Hi Everybody!! I sure had a busy and fun filled Week-End.
All of my posts this week will re-live them all...
Yesterday, my daughter wanted me to bring the carpet shampoo-er down to her in Ann Arbor, so that she could make sure that she can get her deposit back on her old apt, that she has to out of by the 19th.
Sunday also happened to be the day that the coaches and players of the U/M football team could meet the fans and sign autographs. So at 12 Noon I hightailed it over to the practice facility next to Big House and waited in line for the doors to open.
Pic #1. Ahhhh The Big House..Gate 10. the gate I always enter through, and have for 35 years!
2..They are adding 'Sky Boxes' around the stadium much to the chagrin af some Alumni!!
3..The line to get in...85 degree's and very muggy.
4..Inside finally!! And another hour wait till the coaches and players arrive.
5..The far line was by far THE longest line. I'd say it was over 200 yards long, and they were waiting for Michigans new coach Rich Rodriguez...as I was .
6..They were passing out these free posters , and I got several for my friends that couldn't make it with me.
7..There he is...The man himself!! By this time I had been standing in line over 3 hours in muggy heat.
8..After Rich signed my book I extended my hand and he shook it, and I said..."Congratulations coach, you now have The Greatest Job in the country." He smiled and said.."I sure do!"
Saturday..August 30. High Noon.....
The Tradition Continues.....GO BLUE!!!!!!!
