    I’ve been waiting for this moment my entire adult life! T-Mobile is a great place to catch a game too. I was out there a few years back for that great North Carolina vs. Kentucky game.

    Already started the “It’s so cold in November in Michigan, don’t you think?” approach with my wife. (Truth be known, I don’t think I need to twist much of an arm.)

    Is it wise to buy tickets so early? I’m thinking about it but don’t know if there will be fans next season still

    Probably not. IIRC, they were selling tickets for U-M/UK as the entire world was basically shutdown so they’ll sell tickets for anything. I also imagine if there are no fans you’ll eventually get your money back, though. Hard to predict what the world will look like in 9 months though… hard not to be a little optimistic based on the vaccine.

    I’ve just arbitrarily decided that I’ve had enough of this pandemic sh*t, am going to be vaccinated by September in time for the event, and will be watching Blue in Vegas live. I almost need to believe that at this point.
