On an insanely hot day in Ann Arbor, at the big house, where fans were dropping left and right from heat exhaustion, we played Washington.  And Phil Brabbs, who had missed 2 field goals earlier in the game, did this with 2 seconds left...

And he and Navarre had a reaction like this...

And Brady Hoke congratulated him like this...

And today he has a family like this...

My first game as well, and my nose and forehead were so burned that I got those nasty water blisters. Yeah, I know, I'm sorry for getting gross in here.  I didn't care, I was loving it!

At that time, as a Southern California kid I never expected to get that burned at a football game in Michigan...fergodsakes.

Fantastic game.

It was blazing hot, though. I had a solid sunburn on the right half of my face, as did everyone in the underclassman side of the student section.

I was there as phase 2 of my little bro's bachelor party!  We played the UM golf course the day before.  Went to the game Sat morning and of course had the limo bus for the evening and toured metro-Detroit's finest gentlemen's clubs!  Unfortunately the marriage lasted only 18 months...but it was a great game and I definately scored an A+ as the organizer!

Easily one of the top three games I've watched live at Michigan Stadium (Ohio State '03 and '11 are the other two). I really thought Braylon's dropped pass was incomplete--the ending was just stunning.

BTW, here's the embedded highlights
