Welcome to Coffee Talk.
As you can see by the Tim Horton's induced grin, I must have something to SMILE about!
And I certainly DO!
For the past two inglorious seasons, Michigan Stadium aka. The Big House, has been undergoing some expansion. They added some 'Sky Boxes' and more Handicapped seating. During this renovation, U of M had to relinquish their crown of having the largest seating capacity to Penn State. For 30 years we got to hear at half-time from the PA announcer..."And once again Ladies and Gentlemen, we wish to thank you for being part of THE largest crowd in America watching a football game today. Today's attendance is....." and then he would read it off.
So on Saturday September 4th, The New Improved Even BIGGER Big House, was re-dedicated! As you can see from my photo gallery, it was a beautiful Fall Day. You can see me holding up my FREE complimentary 24 oz Absopure Spring Water, (In a comemerative bottle). The pic of me seated was 2 hours before kick-off, with only a few thousand 'Early Birds in the stands. But the pic of Michigan's Marching Band playing "Hail To The Victor's", had the attendance at about 113, 090!!! Once again making me part of the Largest crowd in America watching a football game that day. But this one was special... It was THE Largest Crowd EVER to watch a Game!! And this was just a game against Connecticut...Just wait till MSU, Nebraska, or the Buckeyes come to town!
So I'll probaly return to Monkey Man';s Sunday 160 next week...
But for now I'm still basking in Michigan's 30-10 victory over the Huskies.
Thanks for indulging me a little today....
