So I just got home to grab some lunch and I flip on the tube and the 2000 Orange Bowl is on the Big Ten Network.
I love the Big Ten Network.
I remember this game well because Michigan beat Alabama in overtime. Wish I could have been there to see Tookie turn blue in the face.
The night before I worked at The Whig doing turn of the decade stories. That day I remember going to church at Trinity and a great standing room only crowd at the service.
Then that night the Orange Bowl was on and it was a fantastic game. The family was up in Michigan for New Year's and I had the basement to myself and it was glorious.
I think I hid behind the couch during the overtimes ....
