The Big Chill

Home Up The Big Chill - Page 2


    Tara & I went to a once in a lifetime even on Saturday, December 11th. We got to be part of a Guinness World Record crowd, as we were two of the 113,411 people that sandwiched into Michigan Stadium to watch the University of Michigan Wolverines men's hockey team take on the Michigan State Spartans. Not only was this the largest crowd to ever attend a hockey game, far surpassing the previous record of 77,803 in Germany, but it was also a record for attendance of any event in Michigan Stadium, surpassing the record set earlier this year of 113,090. Pretty sweet!

    The best part of course was that Michigan won, blowing out Michigan State 5-0. At least one team from the University of Michigan is able to beat another team from Michigan State in Michigan Stadium! I know the football team has had their issues accomplishing this recently. Fire RichRod!

    During the game we saw lots of goals, fireworks, plenty of hard checks, a few scrums, some interesting people in the stands, and of course a great game. The weather wasn't even too bad, as the rain and snow held off until after we made our way back to the truck. The temperature was in the mid-30's, but it didn't feel so bad with all of the people jammed into their seats around us. As people starting streaming out late in the third quarter and during the fireworks show after the game Tara & I noticed an increase in the wind and how cold we got. The absolute best part of the whole event? We got to sit right in front of Seth Rogan, the actor from "40 Year Old Virgin" and "Knocked Up"! OK, OK, it wasn't really him. It was the Asian version of him, though. The guy sounded just like him! If I hadn't ask Tara if the guy looked like him, and she hadn't reply that no, he didn't because he was Asian, then I would have swore on my grave that we truly had sat with a celebrity! All in all it was a great time, one which we would love to replicate again in the future.
