I'm probably just getting old.
I've been a season ticket holder for more than 20 years. I've seen championships, Seven and Five seasons, and the great RR experiment.
I supported and I'm glad have the new suites and scoreboards. I love that the the place rocks in a tight game, and is a huge advantage to the team. Even yesterday, particularly in the 4th quarter with the game on the line, it was tough for NE players to get the play calls from sideline to qb to O-line.
But am I the only one who is tired of having hard time talking to friends and family during the pregame and halftime, and at varous times throughout the game when it seems there is no advantage to the team for the piped in music to be blasting? Why do we have to have loud music pumpted in during warmups? At halftime?
Part of my Michigan Expericne is taking family to the game. The stadium is a tremendous place to to enjoy visiting with people you haven't seen in a while, and enjoying a Saturday with friends and family. Watching a pretty bad performance yesterday, it occurred to me that if I had to watch that game, I'd at least like to have the chance to talk to my daughter while doing it. I don't even expect to do that during the game, since there is clearly a competitive advantage from bringing the noise level up on D. But why during half time and pregame? If there's a reason, I honestly would like to know what it is. Clearly it does nothing to get the students to the game on time.
Perhaps I'm out of touch. I don't know.
