Day 164 - U of M Fans
I spotted these enthused fans near Ann Arbor, when taking our daughter to school in 2005. If you zoom in, you can see a "thumbs up fan" in the back seat. I loved seeing this shiny image that reminded me of all the maize & blue spirit I encountered when I moved to Ann Arbor as a teen, in 1973. Even though I've never been a big football fan, I couldn't help getting caught up in the fun.
Game Day Memories: Sitting in the stands with feet resting on icy snow... The masses, moving in and out of the stadium... Proudly wearing my U of M jersey as if I knew anything at all about football... Bumping into my parents when at a game with a new friend. I wasn't a bit embarrassed because they were with famous UM alum, Arthur Miller, which really impressed my friend... Watching, coach, Bo Schembechler and wondering how he could be father of the sweet, quiet guy in my HS drama class...
