In the spirit that is Mich/OSU week, I was wondering what some of your best and worst gameday experiences of the past have been for the best rivalry in all of sports.
I have only been to one game and that was 2006. It is definitely the worst gameday experience I have ever had. That late hit still stings today. But that is not the reason. I can take a bad loss pretty well. It devistates me for a bit but I am usually pretty rational about it. What made this day bad was the fans.
It was just my wife and I attending and it was cold and we had on jackets so really the only thing visable where our Michigan knit hats. To start of , as we were driving in, a car full of students continuously pulled along side of us and cussed and swerved at us. I am cool with the swearing and bickering back and forth but do you really need to try and swerve at another vehicle? Then as we were walking to the game people kept tossing things at us and bumping into us. Now remember, I am with just my wife so I am kind of outnumbered here. I could understand if it were me and a bunch of drunken friends asking for it but it was ridiculous. I could handle it but felt sorry for my wife because she actually was scared a few times. All the women there were even trying to start fights with her. She is all of 110 lbs wet and 5'2" tall. All in all it was a bad fan experience but I guess I should have expected it. I have been to many games and many stadiums and heard my share of insults thrown at my teams but this one topped them all.
I plan on visiting in 2011 to the next home game so hopefully I will have a good experience to share then. One that ends in a win to go along with this Saturday and next years!
