First let me say that Ann Arbor, Michigan is a fabulous city, especially when you come from the Detroit airport. I’m not a fan of Detroit, never really have been since I first went there to cover a Tigers game back in 2010. Don’t get me wrong, it’s gotten a little better, and some improvements to downtown make it a little more palatable, but I would rather not spend too much time there.
Ann Arbor is made a lot better when you have friends there who you’ve known for a very long time, and they want to take you tailgating with them in their very extravagant way.
My two friends Billy and Frank both went to University of Michigan, and they like to make sure that they do things the right way when they tailgate. They have a group of about 35 people that all tailgate together, and Billy and Frank take about 12 of them in a limo over to the Big House parking lot where they all start to consume mass amounts of alcoholic beverages.
They wanted to take me on a tour of Ann Arbor first, so the Limo company they hired – check them out here: www.limoofannarbor.com, took us to see some great views of the Huron River, drove us around downtown to see some historic sights, and then we ended up seeing a lot of the University. The law quadrangle is an especially pretty sight, as you can see here.
