Default My Field Trip to the Motor City Bowl.

Wow, what a beautiful football facility. Nicest I've ever been in...too bad the neighborhood it's in makes Baghdad after 10,000 US bombing sorties look like Walt Disney World! Detroit is a real Hellhole.

I was about to have my picture taken with Gerry Faust (The greatest High School football coach in history, but, um, not so great in College) when DeAngelo Williams ripped off his 70 yard run to the 2. We shared a good memory, though, as I was present at a last second win by a Gerry Faust coached Akron team when the fans actually rushed the field. I believe that was the first and last time that ever happened. He's a great guy...but not so highly regarded at Notre Dame.

Anyhoo, here are some pictures...


Fear the Roo!



Our seats



Zips traveled well (I?d guess 30,000 of the reported 50k were from Akron, maybe 5k from Memphis and the other 15k were locals)



Zippy and the band



Beautiful stadium



Another view



Me arriving

The area looks like I just sent 10,000 Paratroopers in to bomb Kabul when the War On Terror began.

I actually got in the middle of a drug bust when I went to Comerrica park when it opened. That place is a hole. I can not wait to hear reactions after the big game. I have not been to ford field yet but I have heard it is awesome. Nice pics!
