Despite his nerdy appearance, Hal really loves going to Michigan football games. So, he was rightfully disappointed to hear that fall football was called off. While Hal would rather miss one season to ensure everyone can enjoy many more, he still wanted to find a way to solve his Big House Blues.
That’s when Hal realized there are a ton of games he’s never watched! He broke out the tailgating gear, cooked up some jalepeño poppers, and found an archived game to watch. Today, we watched the Michigan v. Ohio State game from 1977! Hal’s biggest takeaways? The marching band has sped up the tempo of all the songs since then, and the modern helmets are cooler.
If you’re feeling bummed about the sports season cancellations, I highly recommend you try this out yourself! Hal wants to know for next time, what past Michigan football game is your favorite?
