"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Did many fans stay in AA to party post-game?
I'm in Ann Arbor? Hell, i never knew we left St. Louis......
Worst thread in the past 30 days. This says a lot!!!
I was curious about the same thing. You must not like Ann Arbor. Anyone that hangs out there would want to hear about the post game scene.
Disagree. I was downtown last night
Considering that, if you look at a thread below, there is a possibility that the University might dabble in such events in the future, it's a very good question and considering the fanbases involved yesterday, I bet that it was a good draw for Main Street, The South U Corridor and the like.
In any case, as one tasked with moderating these threads, I have to say that this is perhaps one of the most innocuous ones in the last 30 days. There actually haven't been many truly terrible ones this summer, but in blog fashion, there have definitely been some standouts in this regard.
I've noticed your posts have been getting extremely trollish and confrontational lately, does that make them the worst post in the past 30 days? More than likely, that says a lot.
Yea dude, why are you so angry, especially with anything related to the soccer game? This stuff is not worth getting so worked up about.
A few days ago. Wasn't extremely well received a few hours later....
Buckle up was actually Mr. Goblin.

This is not a bad thread. It is interesting that Real Madrid and Manchester United played today in Ann Arbor, and those of us not there would like to know what the scene is like.
Yes, this is the opposite of a bad thread. It's a very good thread. It was one of the first ones I clicked on. I was interested to know about the A2 scene, post-match.
What's with all the people going out of their way to neg on something that does not apply to them? How fucking self-centered can you get?
The rest of the world gets to live its life without your approval.
just got back from the bars/clubs. Good crowd!
ER! It appears you picked up a bug from that crowd.
Tried to pick it off but realized this wasn't The Ring.
First time I saw that many cars there.
stayed down there till around 10:30. Crowd was great and the scene was lively. Great night in A2!! GOBLUE and forever MANU!!!
Sounds like a great time.
I think all 109,318 went to the Roadhouse for dinner.
We attempted to get something to eat after the game and we basically gave up because everything was crazy both downtown and on the west side of Ann Arbor.
And I should mention that the party Friday night seemed succesfful as well since my 15 minute drive home took 40 minutes.
As an aside, I'm going to have to stop hating on the guy as much.
He went out there hurt to please the crowd and that was pretty cool of him.
Edit: though I'd probably be pissed if I was a hard core Real Madrid fan and not actually at the game.
This was Dave Brandon on the dance floor last night:
Can't touch his swag right now
did you see the 28348 fights after though?
On friday it was pretty packed. The bars near conors were packed even on the outside into the streets and they had a couple Manchester United banners.
I would say that a lot of new fans experienced Michigan stadium yesterday and the atmosphere was really cool.
I know this blog hates DaveB for a myriad of reasons, but yesterday was a big success. The stadium was lively and had nice touches for the match. It was a marquee matchup and virtually every star short of RVP made an appearance.
Ronaldo gamed it for everyone which was really cool.
Was it anything like this?
I stayed out on the town well into the night. The whole downtown was pretty packed. It felt like school was in session. There were lines to get into most popular spots. Dinner tables for groups were difficult.
And if this is any indication, the line for Ricks was around the corner and well into the alley.
It appeared to be quite a success for Brandon.
