So, we've heard plenty about 'this guy looked great, this guy looked terrible'. I just had myself a boatload of fun, and I have some questions about it.
I went to the spring game by myself, (and later met up with my cousin), because nobody else wanted to go and it presented a good opportunity to go walk through campus and do the things I've always read about but never done. It generated some questions though, so I'm bringing them to you.
I parked in the Red Lot on State, which was a nice change, because I always park on AA-Saline. I walked north on State, past Newsterban, Yost, and the buildings along there. Along the way, I noted all of the brick wall sections outside of Newsterban and Yost had chalk block M's scrawled on them. I've been down there before but never noticed it. Question one: Is this always a game day tradition? Who does it?
I continued past BOX, which had a monster party going on as usual, up past law and the Quadrangle, eventually arriving at Blimpy Burger where I got my first ever. I was even first in line! A big line formed right after me, including some people who had NO idea it was the spring game. WTF people?! Question the second: the old woman who did the grilling, has she been there since they opened in 1953? She's so awesome. Also: Why, for the love of God, was there a Sparty inside BEFORE they opened up? He reached behind the counter for the tip cup while I was there! Tell me a Sparty doesn't own Blimpy Burger.
After that, I walked into south downtown, and purchased a shirt at Underground Printing. The 'No Mascot' shirt, to be specific. They have too nice a storefront. With that name, it should be some rat hole in the wall or something.
I left there, and returned to the stadium, going down through where the Social Work building is, and then past the Ross Business building. Hot dang, that is a seriously awesome looking building. But it does bring up one more critical question. Does attending school at U of M ensure you have rock hard calves? That was a bit of a hike!
