I was watching the video this morning, like I did every Saturday morning in the Fall, and my 3 yr. old came into the room holding her M jersey. "Is it game day Daddy?" She asked. I just shook my head and said, "I wish it was Sweetheart, I wish it was." Its going to be a long 7 months...
Sometimes When You're On
I was at the hockey game last night, and a guy in the upper boxes across from us was lifting up his 2 or 3 year old daughter on every "Hail" in the Victors... also really cute :]
The first time I saw that video Brian posted, I literally burs into tears when the color came on and music exploded. I care that deeply for Michigan Football.
I think I missed the video. Mind posting it?
Agree with the above. Season seems so far off. My one-year old was whipping around his Michigan football this morning and screaming "touchdown". Can't wait to take him to the spring game.
and burst into tears, too.
The song is pretty much a theme song for my life. I got a new cell phone a couple weeks ago and Better Son/Daughter is now also my alarm in the morning. It's a perfect alarm song because of its soft/slow start! <3
Jesus, I'm going to miss Minor and how much violence he brought every time he touched the ball. So unfair that he spent half his career banged up.
So hoping that Hopkins steps into that role.
Who sings the song?
Rilo Kiley - Better Son/Daughter
They absolutely need to use this song again for this year's video.
for all the fathers/mothers here. My wife and I are expecting our first in mid-to-late April.
Every time Michigan scores a touchdown, either my 6 year old son or 3 year old son will run into the kitchen and play the Hail To The Victors song from my bottle opener.
For all of us who suffered through that first year of the Coach Rodriguez era, the video will forever encapsulate the struggles, the fight, and the unreached potential of that year, as well as the glimmers of what the future could hold. Definitely bittersweet.
we should sing/play that song. If you're on T.V., be a good daughter or son and say, "really, really On..."
It is so fitting, and emotional. It is the perfect match.
Is it game day Daddy?" She asked. I just shook my head and said, "I wish it was Sweetheart, I wish it was."
Are you a member of the Michigan basketball team by any chance?
