    I feel like Tech owes me a refund on some of that $100 ticket. I thought there was going to be a football game.

    At least you get to spend the night in a nice city.

    Detroit actually surprised me. It has a nice downtown. I’m not sure I’d come back, but I wouldn’t dread visiting again.

    I liked Ford Field a lot too. It is simpler, but much nicer than Atlanta’s new sphincter dome.

    Bummer dudes. Drive across the river and gamble the night away.

    Down about $300... but I’ll win it back tomorrow.

    Winners never quit.

    The highlight of the trip for me was the Henry Ford Museum. The pregame party at the Firebird Tavern was a bust for us, because they were at capacity when we arrived and weren't letting anyone else in, even though we got there several minutes before the start time. I did get to greet CGC when he arrived, though. The only redeeming value to the game itself was that I had already accepted the loss by the end of the first quarter.

    Looks like official attendance for the game was 27-28k, the 2nd highest in the bowl's history. I'd imagine mostly Minnesota fans though?

    I was sitting in the middle of the Tech section, so it’s hard to judge how many we had, but we had a good turnout. The people in definitive Minnesota colors were centered in a couple of sections around the 50, and I think we had about the same. The whole lower level was at least moderately populated. The area outside the 20s seemed to empty out first, probably a lot of unaffiliated locals.

    It was a respectable turnout for the bowl overall, and the Tech crowd seemed ok to me.

    If I were a local and were given tix, I'd show up. Free football game. Grab some concessions.

    Well, that sucked :ughinout:
    Managed to get into the Firebird, but didn't recognize anyone -- still, better to be among GT fans than otherwise for pregame :drink1:
    Brutal performance, though -- manhandled in the front 7 on both sides of the ball and made Ibrahim look like freaking Earl Campbell ... :facepalm:

    Sad to see the seniors and CPJ go out this way
