Wolverine Wednesday: Is Going To Blow Up The Silverdome

ABC News
A judge has ruled that the Silverdome will have to be blown up/knocked down.   It's become a an eye sore and it's way past time to tear this old girl down.     A judge approved the destruction on Tuesday and the Silverdome's owners have until June 9th to apply for the permit.     As you know, the Silverdome once hosted a Super Bowl, WrestleMania, A number of concerts, and the former home of the Lions and Pistons. 

  • Michigan commit and former teammate of Aubrey Solomon, Otis Reese took a visit to Georgia last weekend and will take a number of trips this Spring and Summer.   At this point, I'm not concerned about a flip.   On a side note, start thinking about the defensive line of Solomon, Gary and Hurst next season.   That sounds pretty good to me!

  • 5 star CA WR Amon-Ra St. Brown has brothers at ND and Stanford and could stay close to home but wants to visit Michigan and Ann Arbor.

  • The Spring Game won't be on TV live and BTN will show it at 3:00.   You will be able to watch it live on BTN2Go.

  • I know we don't follow basketball recruiting here too often, but Michigan is in the race for a 5 star 6'11 PF named Mo Bamba.  We don't see Michigan getting involved to often with 5 star guys, so this recruitment is one you might want to keep an eye on.  Mo seems to be down to Duke, UK, Texas and Michigan.

I remember attending a Monday Night Game at the Silverdome against the Bears on a September night 1979. The Lions inserted Quarterback, Eric Hipple for the first time at the start of that game.

Also at that game was the, Michigan Marching Band. To see and hear the block M marching across that field with the Victors, bouncing off that roof was so awesome. But, many fans in the stands were booing the Michigan Marching Band cause they were connected to the Michigan Football team that was already 0-2 at that hour.

Up until then, I had been a Michigan football fan since 1969 and never knew how serious a Michigan Football fan is until I saw and heard what happened that night at the Silverdome.

I know many of us Michigan Football fans from coast to coast, like me, and we are millions of course, are very seriously passionate of Michigan Football. And we take each season, downs, tackles, turnovers, yards, recruits, touchdowns, all the hype for or against and the wins/losses against our block M, very seriously.

It's like we all own this Michigan football team and are attached to it like strings of steel wire connected by a electric current of 1200 volts (100 yard field x 12 games). And now that rock star Harbaugh is on lead vocals at Michigan Football, we bleed Maze and Blue @ 2400 volts.

We now feel the need to stay connected to Michigan Football, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year on each single word on The Big House Blog, sports media, social media, photos, anything else linked to the team. Especially after the game has been played and the final score is displayed before our own eyes. Dear our hearts, our own family and friends, and anything else connected to Michigan Football team, even if it includes the Michigan Marching Band, if that final score is a loss.

One fine moment at the Silverdome and one valuable lesson on the hearts who bleed Maize and Blue of Michigan Football.
