    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.

    awesome for West Coasters like me. Usually for my birthday my wife and I attend the SoCal region of March Madness. This can be a…Thanksgiving present instead

    Thanksgiving presents are the best! I was once dating a girl that thought we should take a trip during Thanksgiving week. I suggested New York City! She was a little surprised to find out that Michigan was playing Oregon at Barclays Center in the Legend’s Classic and that I had went ahead and got us tickets. She was absolutely irate to find out the next day that it was a 2 day tournament and I bought tickets for that as well. We are no longer together.

    LOL. My wife is Australian and had no idea what she was signing up for with the Michigan stuff. She is a great sport

    Section 204 for both games; not the greatest, but after flight, hotel, and probably the need to eat, it’s what we could afford. Can’t wait to see all the fellow Wolverine fans there!
