Yes I'm having some issues managing the anticipation. How about a little sound off. One week to go so the plans should be relatively close to being cemented by now. Lets hear it.

Well, um, actually a pretty nice little Saturday, we're going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don't know, I don't know if we'll have enough time.

With a question like that, apparently I should be guarding my door.

Watching at home with my 4 year old daughter and 3 month old son so that my wife can go to the game with her dad.
It's their tradition. He is a Western alum.

Taking the family to my parents house, firin' up the 50" plasma with surround sound, grillin' up some brats and drinkin' refreshing oktoberfest beer, and watchin' Mich hopefully destroy Western.

Also will be my little guy's first UM game. He's only 7 months old though so I'm pretty sure he won't know whats going on. Been trying to teach him to say "Go blue!" though.

but that reminds me of my son when he was about 4. They were putting on a Christmas special at his daycare. They all get on stage, I'm standing up on the balcony (thinking I'm recording it all). Everyone gets quiet because it's about to start, and out of nowhere Brendan shouts 'Go Michigan'. The crowd erupts in laughter and appluase. I'm all stoked thinking I get to show this to the world, and guess what - my recorder was on pause.

I put up a sign the following Monday at daycare offering money for a copy of any recording that might have had that on it. Nothing!

Loudonville, OH to be exact. Specifically at 2pm, I will be explaining to my angry girlfriend that I will be leaving the campground and will not be canoeing with everyone else in order to head to a yet to be determined local bar to watch the game and no doubt get into several "colorful" conversations with the native football fans.

I'll probably be at the Wintergarden Tavern in Livonia stuffing my face with coneys.

I'd prefer to go to Mason's and get a burger (it's a regular season tradition for me), but they're always closed on Labor Day weekend.

Ill be throwing down whats left of my brew. Theres nothing like that walk through the golf course beer in hand on your way to the stadium. I take two so I can shotgun one while im waiting to leave through that gate on the corner of stadium and main.

I will be watching the kickoff from my temporary domicile in vevey, switzerland. Happy that I have espn360 and a slingbox box at my disposal that is connected to my tivo at a friends house in norcal.
The kickoff starts at 1230am for me, so I will be well lubed from a nice sat eve dinner with the family and game day and the noon kickoff games under my belt.
Its a sickness, I know, but I will watch the games until 7am CET time and then hit the sack.

I am not much of a good dad on sundays in the fall until noon!

I used to live 20 mins away from the big house, now im 2,000 miles from it in arlington, texas. I'm not counting on the game being shown down here so i'll be looking for a place to watch it online. Anyone know where they stream live UM games? Oh, and of course I'll be drinking some beer as well.
