"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."
According to mlive.com - here's the LINK. Michigan Stadium will hold the 2013 Winter Classic. Yes, we know it's been coming, but it is now official The NHL will announce tomorrow.
Also learned in this link above is the GLI will be played outdoors at Comerica Park. So, Michigan Hockey will now play outdoors AGAIN....
I think I'll wear my David Harlock game worm Toronto Maple Leafs sweater to the game. He was afterall the first 3-time Captain at UM....
The NHL has all but finalized details to hold next year's Winter Classic between the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, while continuing negotiations for a second outdoor rink in downtown Detroit where all ancillary events would be held, a source told ESPN.com Friday.
Also, there's talk of holding the GLI final in Comerica Park:
The annual Great Lakes Invitational, a college tournament that features Michigan State, Michigan and other top college invitees, is among the events being considered for the downtown rink. That tournament is usually held at Joe Louis Arena, the Red Wings' permanent home, in late December.
2013 Winter Classic has all but been promised to Detroit. Question was Comerica vs the Big House. Seems like Michigan Stadium has the pole position.
This is not to complain about the price of the food at the stadium (which is freaking crazy), but rather to verify.
At halftime today, I went to the cart directly across from the south end of section 21 and bought two bottles of pop and a box of popcorn. The prices on the sign were $4 each for pop and $5 for popcorn. I handed the girl $13 and started to turn away. She said, "It's 14." I added it up for her, "$8 for pop plus 5 for popcorn is $13." "Popcorn is $6", she said. I told her the sign says $5, which it did, so that's what I would pay. She said okay and I went back to my seat.
The question is, I've NEVER known the listed prices in the stadium to be wrong. They get up there with sticker numbers before games and make changes all the time, and this was just one of the "superpretzel" carts. Between that and the fact that she didn't argue with me but just said "ok", I'm wondering if she and the other kids working the cart were trying to skim? Should I email the Athletic Department?
