my dad finally got jake to the big house [michigan stadium] last weekend.
some stats: built in 1927 | in ann arbor, michigan | there were 114,000+ poeple the day we were there | only the upper 20 rows are visible from the outside...the rest are built below grade | it is the largest stadium in the u.s.
they played and beat nebraska [welcoming them to the big 10].
|it. was. so. cold.|
|i have a small soft spot for nebraska because of my friend, audrey.|
|lots of people, which kept it rather cozy.|
i should have taken pictures of the tailgate we participated in. it was amazing. and, as a bonus, i got to see my aunt and uncle for a few hours.
one other fun fact. my dad's dad, bob, who passed last christmas day was the biggest michigan fan who ever lived. and when i walked into the stadium, i was greeted by a sweet old man wearing a name tag that read bob. and out of 114,000+ people, i saw this bob probably four times. it made me smile. go blue.
