After that shitty officiating I thought I would share a funny story.
We took our 14U SB team to the game today. It was the first time for all of them on campus, including the other coach (who is a huge Sparty fan), It was rather nice. So we went to the M Den so the girls can get T shirts. Then we went to ( BWW) to have lunch. The game was at 2 so we had a lot of time.
We finished lunch at about 12;30 so I decided to take them to the diag to take in a little Michigan. Here is the problem: I FORGOT IT WAS HASH BASH
For those who have never witnessed Hash Bash, think of Haight/Ashbury with a few less people. Pot, hippies and Protests everywhere. There were hippies everywhere. A cloud hung over the diag but not from weather. One of the girls said, Coach, I see smoke. What is on fire?"
I looked at my other coach and said "oh shit". We agreed to let them see all the Michigan History. As we entered the diag from the north, we walked past the tower then we walked to the steps to look at the huge banner of Bob Marley, There was a group of people thumping on bongos. We stood there for maybe 30 second and one of the girls asked, "Hey coach, whats that smell?", sarcastically.
I laughed my ass off. It was the first time for all of them. So we explained the whole 1960s counter culture and the lifestyle in San Fransico and how it carried over into most campuses by the late 1960s.
What an interesting day. Im still laughing at this. After we left the diag, one girl said, Im hungry. Is there a Taco Bell here?"
I thought I was going to shit my pants because I laughed so hard. I think she had a contact buzz.
What a great day to be a Michigan Wolverine.
