September 10, 2011 — The first game in the Big House under lights will not soon be forgotten by the record-setting crowd in attendance. Although we didn’t have tickets since they were selling for several hundred dollars each on StubHub and Craigslist, Brittany and I made the trek up to Michigan Stadium after a quick visit with family in Toledo. We met up with one of my best friends (Neal) a couple hours before kickoff at one point decided to go look for some new Wolverines gear. Brittany overheard that purses were not allowed in the stadium, so she ran her purse back to the car and I got down to business while she was away. I wound up scoring a phenomenal deal (well below face value) on a pair of tickets in an end zone about 30 rows up. The crowd was electric and the game was incredible…Michigan won in the final seconds (here’s the video of the full game).
Final Score: Michigan 35, Notre Dame 31
