With kids' sports and activities all day on Saturdays I'm forced to record the game and tell everyone I know that I'm "in the bubble" and pray that no one says anything to me all day.  And of course, like clockwork, someone I work with or barely know texts me sometime during the day with "Congrats!" or "rough game" and I fucking hate it.  Completely ruins my day and makes watching the game irritating.  And I can't not look at texts because of coordinating rides or coaching crap for kids.

Night games for west coast fans are a dream come true.  Can actually watch live and not miss important kids' events.   

However, when I lived in Michigan, before kids, I loved noon games.  Loved waking up early (hangover or not) and getting excited for the game.  Had student tickets for 8 years (90-98 (skipping 94) undergrad and grad) and loved every noon game (except a few that I won't mention.  OK, top 2- the Desmond MSU "dropped" 2pt conversion and when McNabb dominated.  But otherwise almost always good feelings.)

And actually noon games on the west coast were great before kids.  Kids.  Such sacrifice....

The wide open pass to Gallon still leaves me in shock. It was the strangest feeling in the world to go from complete despair to actual hope and excitement in just one play.

That feeling happened again the following season when Gardner threw that hail Mary to Roundtree against Northwestern, which happened right in my end zone. I can see myself in the slow-mo replay.

That was a great experience but I would have preferred to have been at UTL.

I still tell people about experiencing just about every single one of what I like to call my "sports emotions" in the last 1:40 or so. Had I been at home instead of the game, I am pretty sure that the middle of that probably would have involved some fairly prolific drinking somewhere and then some beer spilled out of joy when Gallon thought with portals and caught that pass.

I'll never forget the atmosphere inside the Stadium when I got to my seat. 40 minutes before kickoff and the place was damn near full. I'll never forget how the football gods helped us out on the field and in the skies. I'm sure most will remember but it rained almost every day for a week leading up to that Saturday. In fact, it poured rain on the way into AA the morning of the game. The sky cleared and the rest was history. Beautiful night for football. The feeling in the air was like no other Michigan game I had attended. The excitement after the Vincent Smith TD was unbelievable. Of course who can forget how amazed the crowd was after the game. Not sure what to do. Leave, stay, sing, cheer. My buddy and I stood there for 45 minutes and took it all in. That night I'll never forget.

My all time favorite game that I wasn't at. I'll never forget watching this game with my closest buds and just celebrating all night. That 4th qtr might have been the biggest roller coaster of emotions ever.

was one of the most amaizing scenes ever. The fans were so thirsty to have the program back. After the win and the initial pandemonium everyone just stayed in the stadium and partied. Nobody wanted to leave. I look forward to more days and nights like that one.

Great game. Attended with my mom. The last 4 minutes were such a whirlwind. We were in the Roundtree end zone. Really thought they the flag was on Roundtree. Great experience we will never forget.

Just turned on BTN full of excitement...only to find teams adorned in various shades of red.  Boo!  Perhaps you meant Pacific Time?  UTL on at 11pm Eastern.

If we used the offense we used against Nebraska and OSU we probably beat MSU and for sure Iowa. We would have lost Russell Wilson and Wisconsin and still probably ended up in the Sugar Bowl. Still, it was a fun season (the only one we've had post-lloyd)
