The Golden Gophers' Home Opener
Oh, to be a 21 year old U of M student today: it's a day long party in the whole neighborhood around TCF Stadium.
My dad and I went to the Golden Gophers' first game in their new on-campus stadium. We at at Stub and Herb's beforehand, then got to enjoy a beautiful stadium with an energized crowd. Bud Grant was even there (he got a loud cheer: is there a more revered figure in Minnesota sports?). When night settled in, and we were watching a college football game outdoors under the lights, life was good.
