Day 7: University of Michigan at Ann Arbor

On our way to Chicago, we stopped at The University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. We were only in town for one evening, but just being on campus made both of us want to go back to school. When we arrived on Tuesday, the whole campus was a buzz with students on their first day of school. After all, with forty-five thousand graduate and undergraduates, the massive campus and town are dominated by students.

The only problem, however, was that all of the students were still mourning last week's home loss to I-AA Appalachian State in football. Not to mention, I can't believe that Michigan lost again this week at home to Oregon 39 - 7. Talk about adding insult to injury. Lloyd Carr's job is in serious jeopardy at this point. I thought it was bad enough when we spitefully rolled around campus decked out in our full Appalachian State Mountaineer's gear. We had custom made hats with our names on them, knee socks, boxers, shorts, jerseys, big foam fingers, lanyards, and of course individualized bobble head dolls. We were ready to rock! And if any of that ridiculousness were true, we would have been beaten to a bloody pulp within 5 minutes of being on campus. In fact, I think it might have been quicker than that. My guess is that frat row will burn tonight with the second consecutive home loss...

We met Carolyn Grunst, Will Neff, and Mitch for drinks at Ashley's in town.

We passed through Ohio and Indiana on our way to Michigan. Although tempted by many billboards, we did not manage to stop at any of the various spots for adult entertainment on the way. Also, I really wanted to stop after we injured that worker, but I was concerned about the $7500 fine to 15 years in prison on top of being labeled as an aggressive driver. Look at that scruffy smiling face, does he look like an aggressive driver?
