Bruce Springsteen
The writers of this blog are not music critics, and they don't consider a second (or third, fourth or fifth) mortgage to be a perfectly reasonable course of action to pay for front-row tickets, but despite being a whole lot more middle aged than they were when they first put Born in the U.S.A. or The River down on the turntable, still feels like Bruce has something -- OK, a lot of things -- to say about our country and the way we live our lives, things that not a lot of other artists are saying. And whether he's talking about the knife that can cut this pain from your heart, the house that's waiting for you to walk in or what that flag flying over the courthouse means, he's nailing down feelings that are so universal that they can raise your spirits and break your heart at the same time. Plus, letĻs face it, the man rocks.

More pregame photos here. All the postgame Tom Harmon/98 related thoughts & takes here.
Passionately attacking you with miscellanea since 2001, hereís more:
Students: The earliest started queuing up around 10:30PM Friday evening as I understand it and they were let in around 4:30PM yesterday. Here they are filing in (on the left), and..
Michigan students enter Big House Michigan Scoreboard
…props to the athletic department for dropping the 4 pack of live games (right, above) on the big boards for a while.
The Ross Toss: Love for Stephen Ross and his wallet saturated Ann Arbor all day Saturday, from Desmond leading off with a huge thank you to Ross on GameDay, to the story and full page ad in the game program, to the special break during the game to acknowledge the man, to the massive sign the students propped up (some fans were literally under the C). The even dedicated the coin toss to #$teve which makes one ask, if they used a quarter for the coin toss and handed it to Ross when they were done…is it now technically a $199,999,999.75 donation?
Cease and Desist. Still waiting for the bros who blew up my photo for their GameDay sign to reveal themselves and face the music. And by music I mean 7 Nation Army on a loop.
Lasers. I havenít seen lasers like that since the Rush concert up in Saginaw back in the early 80s. A couple below:
Halftime Laser show Block M laser
Apologies for the kickstand on the left. The stadium looked pretty cool once everyone not in the student section figured out how use the little blinking bracelets they passed out:
THANK YOU STEVE! Is a big game truly over if Steve Everitt hasnít photobombed the camera? Glad to see Everitt got a new shirt from the mgo-photostore:
Steve Everitt 2013 Notre Dame Game
He dropped the Big House Football maize tee, that thing must have been getting damn ratty, for the Worst State Ever. Good move.
The Crazy UnclePretty much. But at this point we kind of need him down there for these big games, right? Two quick things about the big man: heís arguably one of the greatest Michigan lineman, if not players, of all-time and as I understand it heís a talented artist. Next year we need to put on the full court press on #1000SSS to commission Everitt to paint something for a game program cover.
Return of the Pink Wolverine Ė You thought Tom Harmonís #98 jersey was the only iconic piece of Michigan apparel to grace the sidelines Saturday night? Not even close:
Pink Shorts Guy - 1991 The Catch Pink Shorts Guy - 2013
One the left, thatís pink shorts guy celebrating Desmondís 1991 ďThe CatchĒ vs. Notre Dame in the northeast corner of the end zone. On the right from Saturday pregame, same endzone same spot..pink shorts guy reappeared. No, they didnít stop the game to recognize this moment but letís just say there were a couple Legends honored on the field yesterday.
End zone cameras? Kind of brutal for the folks seated behind this guy?

Taylor Made: Notre Dame guys putting on the Lewan arms during pregame:
Giant Blue Arms
Press Box Visitors: Before heading down to the locker room for halftime assistants Al Borges and Jeff Hecklinski (enjoying the cool drink) stopped in the press box to catch the final play of the half (the Hail Mary):
Al Borges, Jeff Hecklinski
ďNeed more brats outside Section 32… STAT!Ē The Michigan Stadium EMS crew had a nice little pregame tailgate behind the gates. Good for them:
Michigan Stadium EMS tailgate Good for them. One medical tip: might want to slap a lid on that mayo and stow it, fellers.
Until next time:
