It’s great to be a Michigan Wolverine! My dad, stepmom and I are all huge fans. We usually fly to Michigan every fall for games, but it was the third football game ever between Michigan and Rutgers, which joined the Big 10 in 2014The game was Saturday, Oct. 8 at High Points Solution Stadium in Piscataway, New Jersey – only around an hour from Manhattan – so of course, we got tickets! Right now Michigan is 6-0 under second-year coach Jim Harbaugh and they are the fourth best team in the country. Go Blue!
We parked in a parking lot far away and rode a shuttle bus to and from the stadium. When we got there, dad, my stepmom Patricia, and dad’s friend Doug put on our ponchos and sat down for a rainy first quarter. Dad wouldn’t let me take off my poncho even though I begged. He finally let me take it off when the rain stopped. Thanks, dad!
Watching the game was fun, we also saw dad’s other friends there: Josh, Jeff, Brittany, and Arielle. I ate nachos, a hot dog and cotton candy. I was so thirsty after the nachos that dad had to get me another $4 water. Thanks again, dad!
The best part of the game was when Rutgers THOUGHT they got a touchdown, but it was a fake, so the whole entire game they scored ZERO points. Michigan got 78 points…like I said, “It’s great to be a Michigan Wolverine!”
