T-Minus 193 Hours until Kickoff

Submitted by JeepinBen on August 23rd, 2013 at 2:27 PM

Well, we've made it to the last Friday afternoon without college football coming. One week from now many of us will be itching to leave the office, out of towners like myself will have been packed up for the trip to Ann Arbor. With games next Thursday and Friday nights the season is finally here. What are you up to this final game-free weekend (Until Wife Day and Wife Day II Wife-Day-Harder)? What will you be doing almost exactly 193 hours from right now?

I'll be visiting my parents' place with my wife and kids, swimming in the pool until about 3:15pm when I will run to the living room for the next 3 hours.   Than back in the pool.


Considering my parents live in Michigan... this will not be my plan for the Ohio State game when I am home for Thanksgiving weekend.

I don't know about you, but the last week before college football is the hardest for me. It's like when you are at work looking at the clock, and it says 4:29 and like 15 minutes later it only says 4:32, and you know you can't possibly go home until at least 4:53,which theoretically is only 21 minutes away but actually feels like 105 hours from now.

I will be in Section 4, row 4 with my 3 kids. We go to the home opener every year. This will be my youngest's first Michigan football game (age 4).

We will take in the golf course tailgating before hand and be in the stadium in plenty of time to see the band.

We are driving from Pittsburgh on Friday night - will be the best weekend of the year.

Can't wait - tick.....tick....tick

I actually let a cousin of mine have the CMU tickets as payment for standing in line to get me and the wife Blimpy Burger on its last day open (as well as for power washing the siding on my house, so it was a fair trade, I think), so my wife and I will go find a place to watch the game and then attempt to get into the Brown Jug or wherever we can bum seats and drinks.
