|2 years 35 weeks ago||To Emphasize Bookies||
Another person mentioned Bookies up above, but it seems to have been lost in the shuffle. So, just to reemphasize, Bookies is technically a "Michigan Bar" and is only a few blocks west of the Fox.
See - big, happy, shiny Block M.

I had Row A tickets in the Student Section for the 2007 season (yes, that means I was that close to The Horror, which should forgive me for the below). Given the inauspicious start to that season, I'd already started to bond a bit through mutual commiseration with the press camera people that took up shop on the sidelines in that endzone corner.
To this day, I still have no idea why he was in attendance, but Drew Bledsoe (Washington State) was at the Notre Dame game in Week 3 and naturally had field passes. I suppose as also expected, Erin Andrews managed to corral him for an interview more or less right in front of me. During the course of the interview my fellow Wolverines were yelling the standard, "hey Drew" or "give me high five Drew" dribble. Now, I'm not going to sit here and tell you I wasn't drinking at all that day, but let's just say it was enough that my brain said, "just go with it man" when the first thought popped into my head.
And so I yelled, "Hey Drew, thanks for getting injured so that Tom Brady could be awesome!!!"
Needless to say, he finished the interview and did not make his way over to the student section for obligatory high fives. The coolest field camera guy was clearly trying not to laugh, but also turned and mouthed something like "that was SO mean." I was reminded recently, when ESPN did an article on the 10 year anniversary of the injury that allowed Tom Brady to "be awesome," of how horrific Drew's injury really was; so, yeah, it was kind of mean. But whatever, he had no business being at that game other than to remind the general public that "hey, remember me, I was a real QB once."
Moral of the story - Row A and Row B - you have some power. Use it wisely.

Interesting historical point. Assuming the 2006 Semifinal was played at Michigan Stadium on Saturday, December 30, 2006, there was a high of 48 degrees, low wind, good visibility.
Such scary weather. FYI - it was 51 on Sunday, December 31.
