Totally agree. The Big House is a magical place. Take the kid(s). Make it a habit and they will get hooked. Whether they immediately embrace the game, fall in love with the band, or just take in the atmosphere, they will find their joy.

Just got in to MI from the west coast for a week on the big lake with fam and friends. Nothing like it. Bang Bang!

Man, that was fun! We went nuts and my son told me to settle down after a while because I was scaring the neighbors.

Short work week about to get shorter! Cutting out early and heading up to the SoCal mountains for some bangin' lake time this weekend. 

07/02/2018 - 8:54pm San Diego here. 

Pros

San Diego here. 

Pros

  • tacos (we’re basically northern Baja)
  • pandas (Zoo/Anchorman)
  • awesome weather and easy access to beach, mountains, desert
  • great craft beer scene
  • generally friendly people

cons

  • cost of living
  • distance from Ann Arbor means getting to more than 1 game/yr is very difficult
  • sports culture is weird because many transplants and only 1 pro team
  • Wildfires are no joke
04/02/2018 - 12:41am Oh man. It’s on! So excited

Oh man. It’s on! So excited for this team to put in the final win to finish this magical run. One more game boys! Wish I could be in SA, but you’ll hear me loud from SD!! Bang bang!

03/31/2018 - 8:33pm Awesome! I might just jump in

Awesome! I might just jump in the car now and drive on over from San Diego to add to the Mich crowd for Monday. Man, this is fun!

03/31/2018 - 10:54am Will be watching on TV today

Will be watching on TV today and hope to hear the Alamodome rockin like Staples was. Go Blue and bang bang til Monday!!

Whoop! Still flying high from LA games and can't wait to continue our championship run. Go Blue! bang bang!!

03/25/2018 - 10:38am My voice is shot today and it

My voice is shot today and it is awesome. I was there with my son and every time the war chant started I had an "uh oh" feeling, but then the dominant wolverine crowd drowned that sh** out!!! One of my colleagues, an FSU fan, was also at the game and she texted me several times with "this is a freakin homegame for you guys!". It's great to be a Michigan wolverine!

we're in a suite and plan on swinging through Tom's Urban at some point before the game. We tried to go before Thursday's game and they were turning people away at the door because they were at capacity. Regardless, today will be a great day!

03/24/2018 - 12:46pm The team that whooped TAMU

The team that whooped TAMU Thursday looked much more like the team that ran through the field in the B1G tournament. Doubt we can expect the same offensive dominance but if we see a well-balanced, confident team, I like our chances to move on. I'm just trying to enjoy the moment and create great memories with my son. Go Blue!

03/24/2018 - 12:31pm I was there Thursday, but

I was there Thursday, but still gives me chills watching highlights from the game and hearing the roar from the crowd. We have the best fans and will bring it again today!

That's so awesome! I brought my 8 year old son up from San Diego for the game Thursday and we're still here. You're an awesome parent MGoBrewMom - making great memories with your daughter. Go Blue!

I think they’re stacked with A being lower. Haven’t done a suite at staples but looking forward to it!

03/19/2018 - 6:27pm That’s awesome. Yeah, I think

That’s awesome. Yeah, I think the suite will be really fun. Just hoping for some friendlies to share it with. Enjoy!

03/19/2018 - 6:09pm Any chance you’re in C7?

I bought 2 before the tourney started and saw that the rest got snapped up immediately after our game. If not you, hoping it’s full of Michigan fans!

03/19/2018 - 5:42pm Skip traffic - take the train

And watch the gridlock from the window. Plus beer!

03/19/2018 - 5:13pm I’ll be there!

Pulling my son out of school Thurs, heading up to LA from San Diego, and told my wife we may not be back til Sunday. Can’t wait and GO BLUE!!

03/18/2018 - 2:35am On my couch with wife and son

Talking about what to do with these tickets to LA games on Thursday. My boy says we’re going regardless which loosened the mood. We talked about how crazy basketball is while expecting to watch Houston take on UNC at Staples. Then 2 missed free throws, then irrational hope and that 3 seconds matter. Then the inbound pass...time stopped still and magic happened. Poole hit it. I freaked out yelling “this never happens for Michigan!!” over and over. What an amazing finish! Go Blue!!

03/15/2018 - 11:04pm Keep the lead

And let this old man enjoy his beer...

03/09/2018 - 11:45pm 13-0 run and a UNC turnover

and then Duke turnover, and now UNC turnover. what the ...

03/09/2018 - 11:38pm Have only watched for 10 minutes

but seeing lots of turnovers and bricks. Man, I can't wait to see what we can do in the tourney! 

03/09/2018 - 1:31am Thursbang from the west!

Still Thursday out here in San Diego but bang away! Selfishly hoping that the boys will be coming out here for first round. However it plays out, we’re in for a fun few weeks. Go Blue!

03/02/2018 - 4:40pm Great win!

Let's see the same tomorrow!

01/31/2018 - 4:43pm Grew up in GR, dad UM Law alum

Like many on the board, I was indoctrinated at a young age. My dad was a UM Law alum and proudly flew the M flag every football Saturday - the flag that my mom made him when he graduated from law school. One of my earliest memories of Michigan football is of my dad going nuts over how damn good Anthony Carter was. I remember trying to reinact his catches with my Nerf ball in the living room with the game on in the background. Dad loved it, mom did not. That must have been '81/'82 and I would have been about 8 years old.

I graduated from Michigan in '97 and have lived out west ever since. My wife, also a Michigan grad, and I have an 8 year old son of our own now. We fly that same flag my mom made for my dad all those years ago and this year we'll make our 4th trip from the west coast to the Big House for a game together. It's great to share the long history and tradition of Michigan football with my son and create new traditions and memories along the way. It's great to be a Michigan Wolverine and GO BLUE!

10/27/2017 - 7:20am Bang bang from the west coast!

Heading to airport soon with my 8yo boy for our annual trip to AA for a game. Bang bang!!

Dudeness - look me up if you're ever in San Diego. I'll buy you a beer and we can shoot the shit. I'll take you for tacos and we can watch the panda cam at the zoo. It's what I do. It'll be amazing. Bangbang!!

01/27/2017 - 12:41pm Awesome Zarniwoop!

We adopted our son and we've always had an open relationship with as much of his birth family as wants to be involved. It's been really positive for everyone.

I hope it's a really nice connection for you on Saturday and leads to a positive lifelong relationship. All the best and Go Blue!

01/27/2017 - 11:19am Dudeness!!

Aaaaand there he comes again. It's like a cold Lake Michigan wave in May. You know it's going to sting but it doesn't keep you out of the water. Bangbang!!

Hopping on a party bus headed to Mexico for a weekend of debauchery - leaving the kids at home!!

Wait...that's what my buddy's doing. I will be hanging back keeping his kin fed, clothed, and reasonably safe while they conspire with my 7 year old to do evil things. It'll be fun.
