As we were hanging out in Ann Arbor this weekend for the Notre Dame Game, I got to wondering why there aren't any establishments owned by and named after Michigan's contingent of NFL stars. I think Eddie George has a place in Columbus, and I'm wondering why there aren't similar places in Ann Arbor. I'd give up the law profession to manage Brady's. I think there's even some real estate available on Main Street.
Restaurants in Ann Arbor -- Why isn't there a Brady's?
If a bunch of athletes got together they could easily do this....Planet Hollywood/Hard Rock but with M gear and memoirabilia. It could be done easily.
Coner could have his first live performance their!!!!!
the place would be a mint. Or a money-making factory. Add Coner to the mix? Oh God, Oh Jesus, Oh God and Baby Jesus. And I mean that in a good way.
hoping for better food than Planet Hollywood/Hard Rock. If Giselle is going to be there, we have to break out the cloth napkins.
I wasn't talking about the food. I was talking walls and decor. I don't usually like the cutesy names the give food at those restaurant though. But a 'Bo Burger' or something to that fact sounds sooo much better than the Planet Hollywood BS.....Garrett Rivas should have a giant plate of fried food named after him.
A player who is already retired, like Eddie George. Is Griese retired yet? He could buy the lot that Scorekeepers was on, making sure to commemorate the time he broke the window with a chair!
Jalen, Chris, and Juwan all have to have a ton of money. They all have family/roots in Michigan as well.
And they did happen.
The Broken Window of Lore! From where the championship fortunes were cast...
Brady would prefer to focus on winning Super Bowls...and I'm sure his wife occupies a fair amount of (really good) time.
I'm sure he'd have to be really, really involved in the day-to-day management of the business. Other than lending his name, capital, and having his sister (who I thinks manages all his business deals) hire outstanding talent, he basically would have to cash checks.
Griese's has a nice ring to it.
It doesn't sound like a place you're likely to find any health food though.
While the idea of a former player owning an M-themed restaurant in downtown Ann Arbor makes a ton of sense, it is by no means a slam dunk. For example, if Mike Boren and his kids were to open a pizza place somewhere on Main Street, they might have a tough time making a go of it.
Following in the footsteps of coaching legends Shula and Ditka, how about Schembechler's Steakhouse?
