To cooler 517 and EZMikeP...thanks for taking the time to make such a statement. As a UM alum that couldn't get back to A2 for the game, it did my heart good to see such great fans in the stands. Well done.

RRod got quite a lot of support on his walk into the stadium too, he gave a few smiles and handshakes and seemed genuinely happy, a few fans cheered just for him.

pointed that out to my only other (drunk by that point) michigan friend.

LOVE IT.

haven't yet talked to a guy i work with that 'claims' to be a fan, but yet has trashed us all year last year and has been totally downgrading RRod the last couple weeks.

i imagine he's going to tell me that he never had a doubt.
