Hello to all.
I live in Southwestern Ohio and have been a Michigan fan my whole life. I have 3 sons and am raising them in Buckeye country as Michigan fans. I coach my 11 year old son's football team and because of the committment am not able to attend as many games as I would like. When his schedule came out this year we checked the calendar and the UM schedule. It turns out he has a game on September 27th, his only Sunday game. He jumped for joy after figuring out that UM was home on the 26th and asked me to get tickets. I ordered them the next day. This will be his first Michigan game. After years of begging me to take him to a game, he's finally going to have his dream realized. Since this is his first game, I want to make it as special as possible. In the past, I have parked at the golf course and tailgated until about 15 minutes before game time, then entered the stadium. I want to make sure that this game is special and never forgotten by my son. I've heard that you can walk to the stadium with the band? I've heard that pre-game warmups are important to see. I want to make sure this time that anything that everyone feels is "can't miss", isn't missed. I'm not sure when the next time I'll be able to take him to a game will be. If anyone could provide advice on what any first time fan HAS to see on Game Day (locations and approx. times, please), I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you all in advance, and Go Blue!
