The Wait Begins Again.....
As I have done for every season since 1973, I arrive at the corner
of Stadium and Main in Ann Arbor Michigan, at The Big House...Early.
I love sitting in my seat in an empty stadium, and slowly watch this mighty
bastion of football lore slowly fill up to 113,000 PLUS.
Yesterday was Michigan's final HOME game of this season.
Since the arrival of Brady Hoke as Michigan's Head Coach last year, Michigan
has NOT lost a home game. After suffering through THREE years of mediocrity
during the Rich Rod era, Michigan is crawing it's way back into College Football's
Elite. They are not quite there yet, but they are headed in the right direction.
So as Team 133 flowed through the tunnel for the final time this year
And the Sun sets on The Big House after a Glorious victory over Iowa
And the happy crowd exits the stadium on a PERFECT Fall Saturday .....
Years of Flashbacks cross my mind:
The raucus days of College
Last Minute heroics, Heart wrenching defeats
Watching the families that sit around you grow, mature, passing on their traditions,
And passing on from this life into the next.
I love this place...For those 4 hours on game day, I'm not sick, the economy is put
on hold, job pressures don't exist, Time Stands Still!!!!
I know that this is hard for most of you to understand, I don't really understand it
myself, but this is what makes me happiest in the world!!!
Hail To The Victors!!!
