the national championship in 97, a 122-40 record and 13 bowl appearances in 13 seasons. Not too shabby for a much-maligned former coach.

I met and spoke with Lloyd Carr last night. He was in Windsor to be keynote speake at an awards ceremony and Im home for the weekend. My friend was up for an award and is a popular athlete locally so I was briefly at Lloyd's table. What a classy dude, my friend got a picture of us with him but I don't have it yet. We got to talking about books and I told him I was a prolific reader and we had a good conversation about various authors. It was very cool to meet someone I look up to like that.

lloyd last week at mott. he was there friday to visit a patient and i came upon him looking a little lost in the hallway. i walked him over the the area he was looking for. i was super excited to get to talk to him. but the entire time he was asking ME questions - how long i'd worked there, where i was from, etc. with the couple words i did manage to get in, i thanked him for coming up, since visits from lloyd or the players lift spirits (of both patients and parents) in ways that we can't. he brushed it off immediately, saying that it's nothing compared to the work that is done by the health care team. i told him it was an honor to meet him - and he said it was an honor to meet me. i'm not a physician, i'm not a high up administrator - i'm a nurse that happened to be in the right place at the right time to walk him over so he could brighten someone's day. and on the way over, he completely made my day as well.

During my time on the UM solar car team Lloyd sat down with the race crew to give us a pep talk very close to an upcoming race.  Very classy guy.  Of course, I was the only person on the team who forgot to wear my M polo that day.  No, he did not make me run steps at the Big House, but I felt guilty enough that I wanted to anyway.
