"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

On the bench. Right in front of us in fact. We had a hard time seeing the game because of all of the folks coming down the aisle to get pics during the game.

We were there. Most were kids and they were just escorted off. They were rougher with the adults.
Half were out to meet the players, get a signature, get a pic...the others went straight toward Ronaldo. Nobody really got that close to him before they were intercepted.
The security at the game was pretty weak.

We surprised the kids with tix to the Rose Bowl in 2005. They lost our luggage on the flight out from St Louis. You know the outcome of the game. My wife and I have boarded the plane to fly home, seated in the same row across the aisle from one another, kids in the middle and window seats. A hungover Texas football player boards, pauses at our row, and vomits up and down and around the aisle.

We've managed to get our kids to several games over the years, including a painful Rose Bowl loss to Texas. Things happen, and I find myself the proud parent of a tenors player in the Purdue Marching Band...who admitted that when they played at the Big House last fall that he had trouble remembering which team he was supposed to be cheering for.

I'm an Michigan lifer, but my oldest kid is a Purdue freshman in mech eng and tenors player on the Purdue drumline. Needless to say, we now see some Purdue games. The irritating thing about the BBD is that in a stadium, the timing of the beats is always off. The bigger the stadium, the more the beat is off. Last Saturday in Michigan Stadium it was off by more than we've ever heard before.
Still the AAMB is a pretty darn good band.
