Today we ventured to the Michigan Spring Football game. This free event was a great way to see Michigan Stadium and some football, while supporting Mott Children’s Hospital.
The day started this morning with locker room tours and an alumni flag football game. My daughter had swim class this morning, so we were not able to make these events. We parked on Fifth Street north of Davis and walked from there. On our walk back to the car, we noticed that they were enforcing the no parking on football days on some of the closer streets and saw quite a few cars with tickets.
We planned lunch for the game. The Hungry Howie’s pizza stand had a short line, and my daughter wanted pizza. Unfortunately, they were out of whole pizzas and cheese slices, so we ended up with pepperoni slices. We bought a whole pizza anyway, so it ended up costing us more money.
We arrived at 12:30, so we enjoyed our pizza during warm ups and waiting for the festivities to start.
They started the “game” off with field goal kicking and punting drills. Punting looked like a real weak spot, so hopefully they’ll get that squared away before the season starts. The “game” continued with each team getting an opportunity to start from the 30 yd line. A defensive stop was worth 3 points.
My four year old, was more interested in watching Princess & the Frog on her iPod than watching football. She was tired, so we ended up only staying until 1:40 before departing.
