I'm an adminstrator at a local preschool, and today our staff and I took all of our preschoolers on a field trip to Michigan Stadium.
The kids were very excited - some of them were up ridiculously early this morning in anticipation of the trip.
We met up with a really nice guy named Bill Austin from the AD's Events department, who took us up the east tower to see the club seats, then he took us to the west tower to see a suite and the press box, then he took us down to the locker room, and finally, the kids got to run the tunnel and play on the field. This was an amazing experience! On the way out, as is wise when dealing with preschoolers, everyone had to use the bathroom - so the kids all "went potty where the football players do!"
I have great pics of the kids on the field, but I need to get some persmission from parents before I post. In the meantime, I got a pic in front of Denard's locker.
A few interesting tidbits from our tour guide:
- The arrangement of stalls in the locker room has been changed by the current staff. Under RR the players were arranged by position. Under the Hokester the players are arranged in numerical order to send the message that they are one team, not units.
- The Hard Edge verbiage was still up in the tunnel, but it will be coming down.
