I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
Over at MaizenBrew.com, MaizenBrew Dave has listed ten additional things to improve at Michigan Stadium.
Here's the abbreviated list:
- Install a Slip and Slide
- Live Wolverine Cage By Visitors Locker Room
- Rename One of the Suites the "Up Yours John Pollack Memorial Suite for the Elites"
- A Slushee machine in Section 18
- Install Cloverfieldtron
- If You're Gonna Install Lights, Install 'em With a Dimmer
- Put in a Few More Entry and Exit Gates
- Install Trap Doors Under the Visiting Fans Section
- Bring the Huron River Closer to the Stadium
- On field Holding Pen for Other Team's Convicted Felons
Here's my number 11: Apply a small electrical charge to the seating during "key plays" to prevent anyone from yelling "Down in Front"
Number 12, etc.? Number 5 covers scoreboard improvements, so that's taken.
Apparently they read the "Big House vs. Spartan Stadium" thread and heard about Yost West
I wrote a post earlier asking people about their favorite moments at Yost, and enjoyed everyone's shared memories. Although, its an entirely different atmosphere, I was thinking we could do the same for the Big House with hopefully a great span of memories from "The Catch" to Braylon's show, to 2 seconds.
Although I was there for the Brady, Henson, and Navarre years, my favorite game and fan memories came after school. I think the most exciting game I have been to at the Big House was actually last year at the Notre Dame game. It seemed to have everything, with key scoring plays, key stops, a great rivalry game, and maybe it is the new construction, but I have never heard the crowd so loud, before, during, and after the game.
My favorite fan moment, came a few years ago when I had tickets in the student section, it may have been against Minnesota, but I can't really remember. What I do remember is that after the third quarter, as everyone was sitting down, a student arose with a hotdog, and he pitted the different sections of the students against each other to deem who could cheer the loudest, earning the hotdog as a prize. After the first hotdog was flung, a second appeared, and then a third, and then another. I honestly can't remember how many hotdogs actually were hurled out, but everytime we thought he was done, another would appear to the approving roars of the crowd. Of course the ushers found this act dispicable enough to boot the kid, with an appropriate boo from the students. I have to admit though, this was the best quarter show I ever saw there.
The White House released a set of behind-the-scenes photos on Monday from President Barack Obama's appearances over the past month.
One photo, by official WH photographer Pete Souza, shows Obama getting ready to take the field for U-M's commencement at the Big House on May 1st. The president is shown, by himself, touching the "Go Blue, Hold the Rope" sign above the entrance to the field.
Check out the photo below:
I recently picked up the major preseason prediction magazines for the upcoming college football season and saw that the capacity for Michigan Stadium still sits at 106k and change. I looked around on the internet and could not find the new official capacity of Michigan Stadium with the obvious new additions. I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction or had any information on any new capacity numbers.
I hadn't seen this in awhile. The pictures haven't changed a ton, but nonetheless, here are photos which were placed on Mgoblue.com today.
