Post Game Bliss.......
To me, Michigan's home opener in Ann Arbor is like Christmas, New Years Eve, and my Birthday all rolled into one. I've attented maybe 35 or 36 home openers in my blessed life, but the last 2 have been very disappointing to say the least.
Yesterday was a GLORIOUS day, Sunny, Low Humidity, Smooth traffic flow....
My friend Alex went with me, and we most always get to our seats about an hour and a half early to bask in the history and memories of what is The Big House!!
Three of us...Me, My friend Dave, and my friend Phil, have had seats together since our Junior year in college. My friend Phil is an Attorney in East Lansing Michigan, the home of Michigan State, which is one of U/M's arch rivals. Like myself, Phil had a daughter graduate from Michigan. While she was a student there, she married a young man who played football for the Wolverines by the name of Josh Williams. Josh played on Michigan's 1997 National Championship team, and he also played for The Indianapolis Colts for 6 seasons until an injury cut his career short. He attended this game with Phil, and he also met up with another former Wolverine Tate Chanski.
Tate is the lad giving the thumbs up, and Josh is the Goliath next to him.
You may not be able to see the score in the shadows of the stadium, but it read...
Michigan 31..Western Michigan 7
A Glorious Day indeed!!!!
