There Must Be Something....

Well, let's see...there must be some positive things about today....umm...let me think.

OK - the weather was great for had a good tuna sandwich for lunch, and Alice came to the game for the first time this season and it was good to see called this morning and we talked for at least and hour - mostly about his Spore game...I had a nice chat with Kim about the new computer game called Spore that Holden and Dylan like so much...I felt good physically at the game today - I think because of the moderate stadium was colorful...the band was fun to watch...Michigan had the lead for a while in the first quarter...I like our colors better than Illinois'...we saw some cute kids at the

Ah, yes, halftime was enjoyable...
It's Homecoming and the alumni band played with the big band...we had a chance to sing the Alma Mater...they played an old Michigan song from the distant past...
I want to go back to Michigan,
To dear Ann Arbor town,
Back to Joe's and the Orient,
Back to some of the money we spent,
I want to go back to Michigan,
To dear Ann Arbor town,
I want to go back, I gotta go back
To Mich-i-gan. Ohhhh,
Father and Mother paid all the bills
And we had all the fun
In the friendly rivalry of college life
Hooray and we have to figure a hell of a lot
To tell what we have done,
With the coin we blew at

Give me a minute was nice coming home to our apartment. I'm glad to be here, away from the scoreboard.
