Thumbin' Through Michigan Iowa
As usual, the lines to get into the stadium sabotaged my chances of witnessing the kickoff. Alternatively it could have been the beer I consumed and continued to consume until ten minutes prior to the scheduled starting time, but that's neither here nor there.
What is here is...
