Michigan for the Penn State game

It has become an annual event. Every fall we head to Michigan to visit with Julie's mom and family and to catch a Michigan football game with Julie's cousin Kathleen and her husband Bill. We've caught some great games over the years. This year, not so much.

We started the morning with breakfast at Angelo's. This is a historic family-owned restaurant. They serve a nice breakfast and on football Saturday's, you can expect an hour wait. My plate still has some pumpkin pancakes. Yummmm.

From the parking deck, one of these statues looks a little perverse.

The rain made tailgating a bit nasty. Every time we go out of the van, it would start raining again.

This is our view of Kathleen and Julie leaving after the first quarter. They went to watch in a dry, warm bar. Bill and I opted to stay in the cold, windy rain and watch Michigan beaten up and down the field. We left at the end of the third quarter when Penn State went up 32-10 and Michigan couldn't find a first down.

One last shot from the trip. Julie and I had an early flight out of Detroit. The sky was drop dead gorgeous. This picture was taken through a big window that caused all sorts of reflections and distortions. I wish they would ave let me pop out on the tarmac for a clean shot. Didn't feel like a day in the TSA dungeons.

It was a fairly short trip, but a nice one. We got to hang with Julie's mom, do some shopping, and have a wonderful breakfast in Royal Oak with Julie's aunt and uncle joining us.

Now, back to Park City for some snow.
